Creation Groans; the People Moan; We Need Millstones! Earth’s Pole Rezones?
US: Winter Storm Gia is spreading snow and ice from the plains and Midwest to the East Coast this weekend. Many hundreds have been stranded on interstates, and there have been hundreds of vehicle accidents. As of this writing, five people have been killed in crashes on slick roadways in Kansas and Missouri.
As for next weekend: There are concerns for a more far-reaching Arctic blast and winter storm unfolding this coming Friday and into the weekend. Meteorologists will provide more details in the coming days, but latest indications point toward a storm sweeping snow and ice from the central Plains to a large swath of the Northeast. If the storm tracks far enough to the south, the Carolinas could be dealt with another round of disruptive wintry weather as rain soaks the rest of the South. “Business, schools and travel will all be impacted from this storm.” In its wake, temperatures can be held below zero F for two entire days in the far northern Plains around next Friday to Saturday.
Europe: The death toll has now climbed to 21 from weather-related incidents this week as snow buried countries across Europe, along with strong winds and below zero temperatures. Arctic conditions are expected to last several more days.
Earth’s magnetic pole is on the move faster these days, supposedly. According to the science journal Nature, something strange is going on deep down below. It’s causing the magnetic North Pole to ‘skitter’ away from Canada, towards Siberia. According to Answers in Genesis, Earth’s magnetic decay is further proof of a young Earth.

In a new book, dozens of trans-regretters are disproving the social-agenda claim that a man is a woman if that’s what he says he feels like. They describe how they’ve been harmed by this experiment of cross-sex hormones and surgical procedures, not just physically but emotionally.
For the first time in its history, the American Psychological Association (APA) released guidelines concerning men and boys, saying that “traditional masculinity” is “harmful.” Seems the lunatics are running the asylum these days. “Destroy masculinity in order to destroy discrimination and depression. Feminize men, and indoctrinate boys. That’s the conclusion of the supposedly scientific American Psychological Association.”
Jennifer Wexton, the new congresswoman from Virginia hung a transgender pride flag outside her office in Washington.
Child porn mastermind, Christian Maire, was just killed by other prisoners less than a month after starting his prison term, and one of his cohorts was injured. Many criminals despise child molesters. He handpicked members to join his group of 9 who shared skills, including computer expertise and advanced college degrees. Their sexual interest was in girls, from infants to teens. “They were handpicked to be the best of the best at targeting children.” They sought young girls with serious emotional problems and coerced them to perform sex acts on webcam. Their child porn online library was so vast it would take 50 days of binge watching to view it all. For 5 years they operated and ruined the lives of many. Maire’s attorney called his death a horrible tragedy. Matthew 18:6 disagrees with that assessment.

In Eastern India, a calf was just born with only one eye in the middle of its forehead and no muzzle (causing difficulty breathing). Instead of putting it out of its misery, they’re worshiping it as a god.
In Hmong, Vietnam, several Christians were beaten and also arrested after refusing to renounce Christ and worship a Buddha statue. Vietnam has banned the Protestant Christian faith.

In China, in yet another crackdown on Christianity, Chinese officials entered a church and demanded the removal of the first Commandment, which says “You shall have no other gods before me.” When church officials protested, the response was that President Xi Jinping “opposes this statement.”
In the US, a heathenry religion is being practiced by a group of sailors aboard the US aircraft carrier John C. Stennis. They hold services rooted in Norse paganism aboard the carrier.
“Starbucks addicts” has taken on a whole new meaning. This company with its false deity (Jeremiah 7:18) “Queen of Heaven” logo implemented its social justice warrior “Third Place Policy” several months ago, which means employees are to consider anyone entering the establishment a customer whether they make a purchase or not. Now, customers can drink their expensive swill while watching junkies come inside and shoot up in the bathrooms. Blood gets spurted on the walls, and they leave their used syringes and empty drug baggies on the counters and floor. Some employees have been exposed to AIDs and Hepatitis. So, Starbucks is installing Needle-disposable boxes. The boxes will be installed in various locations as needed.

Egypt’s President Sisi inaugurated a cathedral and a mosque on Coptic Christmas Eve (a day after a terrorist bomb blast near a church in this country that targets non-Muslims). He said regarding Islam and Christianity, “We are one and we will continue to be one.” The pope gave his blessing. [Coptics are similar to Catholics, and the RCC catechism #841 gives Muslims “first place” (besides themselves) in professing to worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.] President Trump praised Sisi for “moving his country to a more inclusive future.” Sec. of State Pompeo visited the new cathedral and also the mosque. He said they were “big, gorgeous, beautiful buildings where the Lord is clearly at work.”
Apostasy/False Prophets/Doctrines of Demons

Reformation Charlotte has obtained the audio of the Worship Director of the Presbyterian (PCA) South City Church in St. Louis preaching a “transgender Jesus” in 2015. More recently, the church has invited a transgender rights activist in a lesbian relationship to teach the members of their church and anyone else who wants to join how to “celebrate the lives of transgender people….” “Mainstream” churches are sliding down the slippery slope.
Contrary to the claim by Pope Francis and some clergy that the sexual abuse problems in the Catholic Church stem from “clericalism” — excessive deference to priests and bishops — German Cardinal Walter Brandmuller said the fundamental problem is homosexuality in the priesthood. He stressed that it’s a statistical fact that 80% of the abuse cases over the decades involved gay priests sexually abusing boys, ages 11 to 17.

Also, IDF soldiers shot and wounded a terrorist in Hevron after he lunged at troops while brandishing a knife.
Islam’s Global Agenda and the Deceived Ones Who Fall For It
Newly-elected foul-mouthed Muslim Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (Dem-MI) gave a radical speech and declared the ‘war cry of Allah’ at a reception for terror-tied CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) on Thursday. Tlaib spoke for 7 minutes, and not once did she say the word “American.” Tlaib did however, say the words “Muslim,” “Islam” and “Palestinian” several times. The only time she said “The United States” was when she trashed President Trump.
Known Jew-hater Linda Sarsour viciously attacked opponents of so-called “Palestine” on a panel at the 2018 Islamic Society of North America convention in Houston. She told the Muslim crowd not to “humanize” oppressors of “Palestine.”

In Sweden, if you criticize on social media the chaos and violence that Islamic migration has brought into the country, you will go to jail.
Push For One-World Government
Pope Francis again called for solidarity toward globalism and spoke against nationalism.
France’s Prime Minister Philippe announced plans to punish those who hold unsanctioned protests which are now in their eighth weekend. He said 80,000 members of the security forces would be deployed. It’s too bad Europe didn’t wake up sooner to the global government agenda.
Macron’s government has proposed new rules against protests that are tougher than the norms that Russia’s Vlad Putin’s regime uses to suppress political opposition.
Traitors and the Marxist, Socialist, Communist Agenda
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman should register as a foreign agent for his work on behalf of the Chinese telecommunications company ZTE Corp., according to a complaint filed with the Justice Department by the Campaign Legal Center. Lieberman filed as a lobbyist last month for the company, which is facing scrutiny over alleged national security threats its products pose to the U.S.
Former Law Enforcement Officer, Roscoe Davis, unveiled a number or tweets over the weekend tying the attack in Benghazi to the Clinton Foundation.

A Boston mayor’s office will force doctors to identify and document patients who own guns. Joseph Stalin’s firearms registration and confiscation was a tremendous success for the Socialist state. Under the Tsar, Russia was one of the most heavily armed societies on earth. That all changed when Stalin and the communists took control. Stalin was able to control, starve, punish and imprison a defenseless people… after he took their guns.
The newest faces of the Democrat Party are making fools of themselves and even embarrassing Democrat leaders. “The thing that is concerning to me,” observes Abe Hamilton of the American Family Association, “is we literally now have a major national political party that has openly become a Socialist party. That should be concerning to all Americans because that is where we are.”
Heather MacDonald, political commentator and journalist, etc., pointed out that colleges and universities in the US today are breeding grounds for planting the seeds for civil war. Students for decades have been trained by Marxists in the administration and faculty, and the Democrat leaders flooding the House of Representatives and everywhere else are also Marxist-Socialist-Communists who want to destroy the nation.
As the liberal media continues to shovel propaganda down the throats of the American people, a rapidly growing number of citizens (the younger ones) prefer socialism over capitalism. Politicians calling themselves “Democratic socialists” have made very visible gains in the past year. These young people have not been taught the real history of socialism; otherwise, they would be appalled by its consequences.
Baseball; no longer an American pastime? Major League Baseball is selling out to the evil Castro regime’s policies in order to move itself up again in popularity. Then again, maybe they just don’t see anything wrong with those totalitarian policies. They must be blind like so many today. You can read more about that here.
Vatican News celebrated the 60th Anniversary of the evil and murderous Castro regime this week on their webpage. The credible estimates of the Castro regime’s death toll run from 35,000 to 141,000, with a median of 73,000. The Vatican’s acknowledgement was deleted after appalled viewers complained.
Communism anyone? Cuba’s government is censoring text messages in an attempt to suppress opposition to its new proposed constitution.
According to the co-founder of the French Green Party, Yves Cochet (who is also an elected member of the European Parliament), benefits for native European families should be removed in order to encourage them to have less children and make room for more Muslim migrants, and also have less effect on “climate change.”
Border Disorder in the Push for the New World Order
In an article by Patrick Buchanan, he said, “In the long run, history will validate Donald Trump’s stand on a border wall to defend the sovereignty and security of the United States. Why? Because mass migration from the global South, not climate change, is the real existential crisis of the West…Trump should declare a national emergency, shift funds out of the Pentagon, build his wall, open the government and charge Democrats with finding excuses not to secure our border because they have a demographic and ideological interest in changing the face of the nation.
“For the larger the share of the U.S. population that requires welfare, the greater the need for more social workers, and the more voters there will be to vote to further grow the liberal welfare state…The Democratic Party is hostile to white men, because the smaller the share of the U.S. population that white men become, the sooner that Democrats inherit the national estate.”

Mark Morgan who served as Border Patrol chief under Obama, defended President Trump against those accusing him of manufacturing this crisis (in their usual game of projection). Morgan stated. “Every single day…we worked…human trafficking cases…drug cases and…gang cases.” He continued, “…127 border patrol agents have died. They didn’t die playing monopoly.”
California’s new Democrat governor is promising the most populous state will be a “sanctuary to all who seek it.” Only, as we’ve seen, it is no sanctuary, especially for the citizens who have to wade through urine and feces and used syringe needles to walk around.
