A Jezebel Spirit Has Overtaken the Nations
“Extreme Weather” (and no wonder)
Parts of California still resemble a scene out of winter, with a series of storms bringing several feet of snow to mountain areas, and there is a “significant” severe weather threat across the nation’s midsection. Severe thunderstorms and tornadoes will threaten almost 1 million square miles of 18 states in coming days as tumultuous spring weather sweeps the nation.
May 17 five-day forecast: Depending where you live in the US, you might see severe thunderstorms, flooding rains, sizzling heat, or unseasonable cold and snow during the next 5 days as an unusually divisive weather pattern develops. The jet stream would be intense even for winter, and is almost unheard of during spring in the mid-section of the US with winds at around 30,000 feet screaming at about 125-150 mph. These energy waves will spark severe thunderstorms containing large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes. The weather pattern will evolve in a starkly divided country: unusual cold West; unusually mild Southeast. The zone between is where many of the most intense storms will ignite.
As of this writing Saturday evening, severe storms are marching across the central US, leaving over 100,000 without power from Texas to Iowa. The storm system spawned 30 preliminary tornado reports in Nebraska and Kansas Friday and Friday night as it tracked eastward. Saturday is only the second day of what could be over a week-long severe outbreak over the center of the US. Meteorologist Brandon Buckingham warns that as the days progress, the flood threat will continue to increase over areas that have round after round of rain and thunderstorms. “Tornado Alley is certainly waking up with significant severe weather,” Meteorologist Reed Timmer said while reporting on the multi-day outbreak .He noted that this is the worst setup for severe weather he has seen in years.
In the US, moderate to major flooding is occurring along nearly the entire length of the Mississippi River from the Iowa/Illinois border to west of New Orleans, Louisiana. Baton Rouge will break the record for the longest river flood event since 1927. In addition, flooding is taking place along the Missouri, Sabine, Wabash and White rivers, as well as other rivers in the central US.
The continental United States just recorded its wettest 12-month period in recorded history. While the drought relief is welcome in some areas, the wet weather has resulted in disastrous flooding for many communities across the country. At least 10 deaths were attributed to flooding in May thus far.
2019 is turning out to be a nightmare for the agriculture industry, and we will reap the consequences. Due to endless rain and unprecedented flooding, fields all over the middle part of the US are absolutely soaked right now; this has prevented many farmers from getting their crops in the ground.
Once in a half-century torrential rain lashed Japan’s Okinawa Island of Yonaguni. 276.5 millimeters (nearly 11 inches) of rain fell in just 3-hours, the highest ever recorded in May. Rainfall of this magnitude is almost impossible to imagine; many locations in the US would only expect to see that amount in 3 months, not 3 hours. There was no tropical system near the island to cause this event.
Great Earthquakes in Diverse Places
In Panama, a 6.1 earthquake struck a lightly populated area which rattled homes, damaged buildings and injured at least two people.
A powerful, shallow 7.5 quake struck off the coast of Papua New Guinea, rattling coastal towns.
Last Days Return to Days of Lot
The indoctrination of children is in full swing. The hit PBS children’s cartoon show “Arthur” just had young Arthur’s favorite third-grade teacher come out as a homosexual and marry another male who runs a chocolate shop. The gay chocolatier winks knowingly at the children as he walks down the aisle, and they exchange delighted smiles. Liberal media Time and MSN claimed fans of the show were joyful. CNN said the teacher finally got the happiness he deserved.
Central Park School for Children in North Carolina for grades K thru 8 held a week-long celebration of gay pride where they urged boys and girls to liberate themselves. The children learned about drag queens, transgenders, and something called queer history. The drag queen (known as Justin Clapp) is an advocate of something called anti-transphobia; he says anyone who feels uncomfortable around a drag queen is a bigot.
In Australia, Greystanes High School in New South Wales notified students and parents that on “Rainbow Mufti Day” and ‘International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia,’ those not wearing an item of “rainbow clothing” would be pressed for increased contributions to the National Youth Mental Health Foundation. Instead of one dollar, it would be two dollars. The notice was delivered via a Facebook post, which has since been edited to eliminate the penalty.
A British judge and so-called gender experts have given approval to foster parents of a 3-year-old boy whom they’re manipulating – “transitioning” to be a girl. They send him to school in a girl’s uniform despite the school requesting them not to. They also “transitioned” their 7-year-old biological child months before. A third child fostered by them also had gender issues while with them.
11-year-old drag performer known as Desmond-is-Amazing is now a model for the Converse footwear company which announced a “partnership” with Desmond and five others connected with the LGBTQ+ community to market its new “Pride” collection.
Video: On Mother’s Day, Nabisco promoted its Chips Ahoy cookies on social media using a drag queen with a message to Get These Cookies “for your real mama – your drag mama, whichever mama.”
Debauchery on Display: The Met Gala in NYC “celebrated excess and the unnatural.” Billy Porter arrived in a Sun-god outfit carried by 6 shirtless men. He descended from his throne and spread his massive golden wings like a phoenix. Harry Styles donned a sheer black lace Gucci top and single pearl earring. Jared Leto wore a red gown, carrying a facsimile of his own head. Lady Gaga aka “Mother Monster,” wore 3 ensembles, the last one posing in a glittery bra, fishnets, thigh-high boots and 28-carat diamond choker from Tiffany’s. (Gaga’s fans call her “Mother Monster,” and she often refers to them as “Little Monsters,” a phrase which she had tattooed on herself in dedication).
Taiwan became the first place in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage this week, as thousands of demonstrators outside parliament cheered and waved rainbow flags.
If you think the downward slide of morality will stop at accepting pedophilia, necrophilia or bestiality, then you don’t know that those cars are already being promoted to add to the out-of-control train. Liberal Princeton University professor Peter Singer (who said he has no intrinsic moral taboos) said in recent years that he sees nothing wrong with bestiality. He also would not, under questioning, condemn pedophilia outright. And Tom Raue (who is anti-police, wants to abolish prisons, and called punching someone from behind “brave” after someone died from it), wrote for a student newspaper previous to becoming a Green Party candidate for political office in New South Wales that he saw no harm in necrophilia (sex with a corpse). And he wrote an article supporting bestiality. Now he claims it was a joke. Not likely. Peter Singer had a leading role in developing The Green Party that Raue is a part of.
Abortion: Shocking statements from the Left
Fact-checking the so-called Fact checkers: The “fact checkers” at Associated Press were the latest to vehemently protest President Trump’s accusation that doctors have basically executed babies born alive after a failed abortion attempt. Yet the CDC has confirmed that 143 babies born alive after abortions between 2004 and 2014 were left to die. How many more are there that go unreported? And are these 143 babies not important, even if the numbers weren’t higher?
In Argentina, Dr. Leandro Rodriguez Lastra is on trial for refusing to commit abortion on a viable baby even though she never filed a complaint against him. The young woman consented to set a date for a caesarian section as soon as the baby would have good chances of surviving, at seven and a half months. The trial follows two years of proceedings during which Rodriguez argued in vain that he did not perform the abortion for medical reasons. As a member of the group “Save Both,” Rodriguez at least has the satisfaction of knowing that both the young woman who came to the hospital to get rid of her baby and the child himself are alive today: the baby was given up for adoption and is now a thriving two-year-old.
The Center for Medical Progress, the citizen journalism organization responsible for the undercover video series exposing Planned Parenthood’s sale of aborted baby body parts, revealed that over the past month government-funded researchers at University of California San Diego have sought to purchase hearts and pancreases from aborted fetuses.
Facebook censored a pro-life ad featuring a simple picture of an unborn baby in the womb, claiming the image fell under the “graphic” or “violent” image category. Facebook users see a warning where the ad once appeared.
Heartbeat abortion bans are advancing in the South and Midwest. Republican-led states vow to pass anti-abortion bills and the Democrat left vows just as strongly to defeat them. The abortion lobby called Alabama’s new near total abortion ban “cruel” to women. The ACLU and Planned Parenthood promise to challenge the new law in court.
As of last Friday, the Vermont Democrat Party now holds the dubious distinction of being the party of unlimited, unrestricted and unregulated abortion-on-demand throughout pregnancy. All abortions would be legal for any reason, if the bill becomes law. New York, for example, allows abortion at all stages of pregnancy but mentions the vague “health of the mother” excuse. Of course, that’s no excuse anyway. In such a case, early delivery could be necessary, not abortion.
Diane Derzis, owner of an abortion clinic, said, “They smell blood and that’s why they’re doing this.” Yes, Ms. Derzis; we smell the blood of all the innocent babies being murdered. Elizabeth Nash, state policy analyst for a research group that supports abortion rights, said, “How many states do you have to cross before you can access abortion services? It exacerbates all the issues we’ve already seen around taking time off from work and having the money to travel.” Well, Ms. Nash, you don’t have to travel far at all to get birth control pills or condoms. And what about abstinence?
In a display of typical Hollywood political activism, actress Reese Witherspoon blasted the several states that passed legislation outlawing abortion once a heartbeat is detected in the womb. She called the new abortion bans “abhorrent.” So Reese, ripping up a baby or burning it alive with saline is not abhorrent? Actress Alyssa Milano called for pro-abortion women to protest with a national “sex strike.” [Actually, that’s a good idea for the liberal left].
NYC Democrat politician Christine Quinn angrily defied science by squawking her deranged belief that, “when a woman is pregnant, that is not a human being inside of her.”
Read more comments in this article from the pro-abortion Democrat leaders and those in the “entertainment industry. We’d like to say we’re shocked, but we’re not in these evil last days.
The American Red Cross type O blood supply is critically low. The organization is urging eligible donors to give blood as soon as possible to help patients facing trauma and other life-threatening situations. The Red Cross said it has less than a two-day supply of type O blood available for emergency rooms. Just six units of type O blood are available for every 100,000 people, but at least 14 are needed every day.
North Korea is suffering its worst drought in nearly 40 years amid growing concerns the country is dangerously short on food. The UN says up to 10 million North Koreans are “in urgent need of food assistance.”
In Pakistan, police have arrested child specialist, Muzaffar Ghangharo, who has AIDs and has been accused of treating children with used syringes. Well over 400 children have been diagnosed with HIV. Imran Akbar, a doctor in the city, said he expected the figure to rise. “These cases are just the tip of the iceberg,” he said. He said most of the doctors in the town were untrained and many practiced folk medicine. Diseases are often spread through reuse of syringes, piercing of noses and ears using unsanitary equipment, and unsafe sex.
The “blue light” in LED lighting can damage the eye’s retina and disturb natural sleep rhythms, France’s government-run health watchdog said this week.
Drugs and the Devil
In Georgia, Courtney Marie Bell and Christopher McNabb have just been found guilty of murdering their 15-day-old daughter in 2017 while on meth. The couple claimed someone broke in and took the child while they slept, but the baby was found in a wooded area near their trailer home dumped in a bag that belonged to McNabb. The cause of death was blunt force head trauma. The arrest photo in 2017 and the photo from the other day in court shows that McNabb added even more face tattoos since.
Indoctrinated to hate America and turned into snowflakes (more easy to control that way), students at George Washington High School in California are protesting a 1936 mural that depicts the founding of the country, claiming it traumatizes them. Two of the images depict slaves and Native Americans. If they only knew that the mural’s creator, Victor Arnautoff, was a protégé of occultist and communist painter Diego Rivera and a communist himself. From Alex Newman: “As for the credulous conservatives who thought compromise would soothe the savage breast, it should now be obvious that a dark cultural revolution is in full swing. It was never going to end with the tearing down of Confederate statues or the elimination of Columbus Day, as the attack on Washington, the father of the nation, evidences. So man up and stand up — or watch your civilization be torn down.”
Attorney General William Barr’s launching of a wide-ranging investigation into FBI conduct during the 2016 election has made him public enemy #1 to the left. Consequently, Democrats are now working overtime to discredit him less than 3 months after his confirmation due to his distinguished career.
It’s been revealed that the Pentagon was forced to rescind interim security clearances granted under the Obama administration to at least 165 contractors linked to various crimes, including felony convictions for pedophilia and foreign government affiliations.
America’s 10 largest cities, largely Democrat strongholds, are drowning in municipal debt.
In 2006, Democrat forefront runner for the 2020 presidential race, Creepy “hands on your little girls” Joe Biden said at that time, “We need a border wall and to punish Americans who hire illegals.” Both Clintons and Obama have spoken in the past of strengthening our borders against illegal immigration. That changed when they realized they needed their votes to stay in power to take down this republic and replace it with a Marxist-Socialist-Communist regime.
CNN and MSNBC have been caught fudging polls to make it look like their Dem candidate of choice (Creepy Joe Biden) is leading Sanders (not that anyone with common sense would vote for either). This is just one example in a long-running list of lies from the liberal media. MSNBC also made hysterical, highly dangerous, and false claims about the Russians’ ability and intention to shut down America’s electrical grid, a completely false story, retracted as soon as it went out by the Washington Post. This kind of unhinged war propaganda could lead the world to Armageddon.
Candace Owens, communications director at Turning Point USA, was suspended from Facebook for a week after she wrote, ‘Black America must wake up to the great liberal hoax.’ Of course, FB claims it suspended the account “by mistake.”
Facebook has shut down 23 major populist Italian pages (those against global government) with 2.5 million followers just two weeks before the European elections, and has weakened other pages, making them less visible. The claim is that they spread fake news, but the reality is that Facebook supports global government, which God is against.
Google Globalists Grab up Leftist Headlines, a new study has found. 62% of the impressions were from sources considered left-leaning and only 11% from right-leaning outlets. CNN, New York Times, and Washington Post dominated the coverage. It’s worse than this study found. Only leftist sources show up on the first page, and often one must type the name of the conservative or middle of the road site to get them to show up at all.
Unpatriotic move by Walmart. Walmart is one of the most profitable companies in history that caused many small businesses to close. In many cases, Walmart helped push the outsourcing business because if your prices were too high they wouldn’t let you on their shelves. Many corporations have made a killing off outsourcing to China, oftentimes against the national security interests of America.
So now that we must confront China, does Walmart stand with Trump? No; they announced they’ll raise prices because of Trump’s tariffs on China. God forbid they do the patriotic thing and make slightly less profit for a few months and let Trump make a deal? Profits before patriotism for global companies, and that’s why Trump is correct to redo the whole global supply chain away from China. If we don’t do it now, it’ll never be done. Do we want the global system based on authoritarianism and communism?
MEXICALI-CENTRAL: Hundreds of migrant families will be flown to California in as many as 3 flights a week indefinitely as U.S. Border Patrol agents continue to struggle with the growing number of illegals crossing into the U.S., officials said. Each flight cost the government around $6,000. Screening/ interviewing one person takes several hours. ICE will decide whether to release or detain the families. Border arrests have skyrocketed since Oct. 1, having reached a record 520,000, highest in a decade, 4500 a day. Officials said they are also considering similar flights to Detroit, Miami and Buffalo, N.Y.
ICE is looking to hire a contractor to transport 225,000 migrants to other locations in the US (to ease the burden on the shelters close to the border) over the next five years as they wait for their “asylum claims” to be processed. The private company would transport approximately 60,000 people a year. (Sending them to the liberal cities who have supported this illegal influx is the best idea).
Patrick Shanahan, current acting Defense Secretary, made it clear that the military remains committed to securing the US-Mexico border, as law enforcement officials continue struggling to address the growing numbers of migrants. The Border crisis is worsening. The Dept of Homeland Security numbers US Border Patrol agents in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California apprehended 98,977 people who crossed between ports of entry in areas that do and do not have barriers. Another 10,000 people attempted to pass through border crossings but were turned away.
US Northern Border: Border patrol agents have already detained more people trying to cross the southern border this fiscal year than last with the fiscal year only about halfway over. But there has been an increase in apprehensions at the northern border as well which have gone up about 42% from 2017 to 2018.
Wells Fargo banker Luis Figueroa of Tijuana, Mexico, admitted to helping launder millions of dollars for the Sinaloa drug cartel in a scheme which spanned Wells Fargo and other banks in the US. Eight other people were arrested and charged in the scheme. “We can’t allow our banks to be laundromats for cartel cash,” said US Attorney Robert Brewer. “Bank employees who launder drug money for traffickers will face prosecution and prison.” The Sinaloa cartel is one of the largest drug trafficking groups in the world. Based in the West Coast of Mexico, the first lab believed to have produced fentanyl was found at a home in Sinaloa’s state capital.
Mexican investigators found 35 bodies buried in and around Guadalajara likely linked to gang-related violence that produced nearly 29,000 murders last year, a record. Do we want them sneaking in here?
More than 40 US states filed a lawsuit accusing pharmaceutical firms of conspiring to artificially inflate the cost of common medicinal drugs.
Islamization of the Nations
Islam’s Sharia Law: Iran’s government ordered its men not to look directly at women (who are already completely covered up in black hijabs) when passing by them during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, banned eating in public, and playing music in cars as part of a new social crackdown. Those who break the rules will be punished, from fines to arrest and imprisonment, depending on the “crime.”
Israeli police remain on high alert in and around the Old City of Jerusalem. Muslim visitors arrived and prayed to their god Allah for the second Friday of Ramadan. Roads in the old city were closed to enable thousands of worshipers.
The FBI uncovered a homegrown, Islamist jihadist compound in Macon County, Alabama.
An investigation conducted by the Israeli blockchain intelligence startup Whitestream has found that on the day prior to the Easter bombings in Sri Lanka, there were exceptionally large transfers in the bitcoin wallets that ISIS uses to raise contributions.
Islamic terrorists, mainly ISIS, carried out over 30 attacks during the first week of Ramadan, killing at least 166 people and injuring 155 others in Afghanistan, Benin, Burkina Faso, Iraq, Pakistan, Kenya, Somalia, Libya, Mali, Nigeria, Pakistan, and Syria. Ramadan, a time when Islamic extremists believe Allah doubly rewards martyrdom and jihad, began at sunset on May 5 and will last through sundown on June 4. This count excludes attacks that took place on May 5.
Hatred of All That Name the Name of Christ
Eight republicans joined Democrats in the House to pass the so-called “Equality Act,” which effectively puts a bullseye on every person of faith in the nation. If they get their way, religious hospitals would be forced to perform abortions, Christian churches would be forced to host events that are contrary to the Bible’s teachings, and Christian schools would be required to accommodate “transgender” students regarding athletic teams and bathrooms. It would also completely obliterate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, a law that stops government from encroaching on a person’s religious liberty. It’s unclear what will happen in the Senate, especially if Republicans side with Democrats. The only thing standing between religious liberty and tyranny may be President Trump’s veto pen.
Good for the elected officials in a Texas community who voted to keep the crosses on their courthouse and illuminated them instead after an atheist organization told them to take them down.
The poster child for the Democrat Party, Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) posted multiple attacks against conservative Christians this week on social media.
Vice President Mike Pence spoke to the 2019 graduates of Liberty University. While many commencement speakers wish the graduates a bright and glorious future, Pence warned students that in today’s America to be prepared to be ridiculed and shunned because of their Christian faith. He also said the loudest voices for tolerance have little tolerance for anything pertaining to biblical teachings.
Target, which allows men to enter women’s dressing rooms and bathrooms, has now gone on public record stating they fully support the the so-called Equality Act now before Congress, meaning it supports government-sanctioned discrimination against churches and Christian business owners.
New Zealand is looking to arrest of the person who left Christian gospel tracts warning about the terroristic ideology of Islam.
China’s government launched a new campaign called Return to Zero. The ultimate goal is eliminating Christianity. Churches are required to register with the government and become part of the Three-Self movement. Pastors must submit sermons to government officials for approval. In some Three-Self churches, children are prohibited from attending. Such restrictions have driven millions to join illegal, unregistered house churches. Under Return to Zero, house churches must join the Three-Self movement or disband.
In Africa, Muslim jihadists killed six people including a priest during mass at a church in in Burkina Faso. The attackers then burned down the church. Other buildings were burned and looted.
Hatred of the Jewish People and Israel
In Arkansas, a Holocaust Remembrance Day event was interrupted by protesters bearing anti-Semitic signs, including one that read “The Holocaust didn’t happen, but it should have.” Bearing crosses, a large portrait of Jesus and Christian and Nazi flags, the protester’s anti-Semitic signs also included one reading “YHWH has the oven preheated.” These protestors know nothing of God.
Video: In New York, a Jewish man in Brooklyn just walking along was attacked from behind by black man who then ran away smiling. The leftists blame anti-Semitism on white supremacism, but that is a lie. It is mainstreamed.
In Massachusetts, police in the Boston area have opened a multi-jurisdictional probe after a fire was reported at the Chabad Jewish Center in Needham just one hour after a fire was reported at the Arlington home and Chabad house of Rabbi Avi Bukiet and his family. That brings to three the number of suspicious fires since last Saturday night, when a blaze damaged outside shingles at the Bukiets’ home.
Anti-Semitism at New York University (NYU), home to the nation’s largest Jewish population, is not new. But in the past two years it has increased exponentially.
Lies and Alibis: Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., has made yet another shocking and historically ignorant claim: that her “Palestinian” ancestors provided “safe haven” for Jewish victims of holocaust and ended up losing their land. Yet the Bible tells us God gave Israel to the Jews and that it was a “wasteland” until the Jews returned. Read Miracles: Re-birth of the Jewish State in the Land of Israel. Ezekiel 38:8 also says Israel was a wasteland until God brought the Jews back to their land in these last days.
The Soros-back group Bend the Arc (a group of liberal-left, self-hating Jews) is defending the lies and alibis of Muslim Democrat reps Ilhan and Rashida Tlaib, who are in yet another controversy involving their anti-Semitism and/or support for Islamic extremism and/or support for the annihilation of Israel.
Wars and Rumors of Wars
Syrian state media is reporting that several explosions were heard in Damascus Friday night as the country’s air defenses opened fire on “objects” coming from the direction of Israel. There was no comment on the strikes by Israel which rarely discusses alleged Israel Air Force operations on the northern front. Israeli officials, however, have repeatedly voiced concerns over Iran’s presence in Syria and the smuggling of sophisticated weaponry to Hezbollah from Tehran to Lebanon via Syria, stressing that both are red lines for the Jewish State.
The US Dept of Homeland Security has officially suspended all air traffic between the US and Venezuela due to “ongoing political stability and increased tensions.”
A Chinese defense contractor has unveiled a new vehicle that can singlehandedly launch a swarm of drones, then direct them to converge on targets and detonate their explosive payloads.
The U.S. Air Force has deployed at least 20 missiles that could zap enemy military electronics with high-powered microwaves, rendering their military capabilities virtually useless without causing any fatalities.
The British Foreign Office has intensified it’s warning to British and British-Iranian dual nationals on travel to Iran, advising to avoid traveling to Iran at all costs, stating there is a risk being “arbitrarily detained in Iran.” The strict warning comes a few days after an Iranian British Council Member Aras Amri was sentenced to 10 years in prison for “allegedly” spying on Iran for the British government.
The FAA has issued an advisory to US commercial airliners flying over the waters of the Gulf and the Gulf of Oman to exercise caution. The warning came amidst “heightened military activities and increased political tensions in the region which present an increasing inadvertent risk to US civil aviation operations due to the potential for miscalculation or mis-identification.”
Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states agreed to a request for renewed deployment of US forces to deter Iran on both sea and on land. The Saudis are actually urging the US to launch airstrikes against Iran. The Saudis blame Iran for attacks on ships in the Gulf this past week.
The US and others are also blaming Iran or its proxies for blasts that damaged four commercial ships off the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last Sunday. Each ship had a 5-to-10-foot hole in it, near or just below the water line. A Norwegian-flagged vessel, two Saudi oil tankers and a bunkering tanker flagged in Sharjah, one of the UAE’s seven emirates, all suffered similar damage Sunday.
The US has ordered non-emergency embassy staff to leave Iraq. CENTCOM raised the threat level in Iraq and Syria with troops on high alert against a possible “imminent” attack by Iran and its proxies.
US-allied Bahrain, also a Saudi ally, warned its citizens on Saturday against travel to Iraq and Iran and asked those already there to return “immediately” for their safety. The Bahrain foreign ministry cited, “unstable regional circumstances, dangerous developments and potential threats.”
Iran’s military commanders said the Islamic Republic is on the verge of all-out confrontation with its enemies and ready to counter any threat. Amir Hatami said Iran would defeat an American and Israeli alliance.
Iranian navy commander Rear Admiral Hossein said, “The presence of the Americans in the Persian Gulf region has reached its end and they must leave the region.” He says the US presence in the Gulf used to be a serious threat but now represents a target. The US sent forces, including an aircraft carrier and B-52 bombers, to the Middle East to counter “clear indications” of threats from Iran to American forces in the region. Intelligence sources showed Iran-backed militias in Iraq moving rockets to locations that could hit bases where American troops are positioned.
Prime Minister Netanyahu expressed support for President Trump’s stance against Iranian aggression. “There is a new efflorescence, a new renaissance of relations between us and many of our Arab neighbors, and many non-Arab Muslim countries. We are united in our desire to stop Iranian aggression,” he said.
There is a lot of saber rattling going on from Iran’s military leaders. However, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that while there will not be full-scale war between his nation and the US, Washington will be forced to retreat from the current face-off because the Iranian people have a stronger resolve than Americans.
Opinion from Kenneth Pollack: It is unlikely that we will find ourselves in a war with Iran in the near term because both sides are eager to avoid one… Of course, just because two countries don’t want a war doesn’t mean they won’t stumble into one anyway. Given current tensions, the deployment of additional American military forces to the region, and the tendency for Iran’s Revolutionary Guards to occasionally take unauthorized aggressive actions, no one should rule out an unintended clash. Even then, however, the most likely scenario would be a limited American retaliatory strike to demonstrate to Iran that Washington won’t be pushed around and that Iran needs to keep its problem children under control.
Everyone’s been talking about Bloomberg’s report that Amazon workers are listening to the voice recordings created when you speak to Alexa. But Amazon is far from alone. Here’s how tech companies can and have looked at that private data you upload: Read at this link.
Facial recognition has become a routing policing tool in America, used by federal, state and local law enforcement. The technology is proliferating amid concerns that it is prone to errors and allows the government to expand surveillance without much oversight.
Colleagues from the University of Science and Technology of China showed how to photograph subjects up to 45 km (28 miles) away even in a smog-plagued urban environment.
President Trump has declared a “national emergency” to protect US communications networks. The executive order says foreign adversaries are exploiting vulnerabilities in US telecommunications technology and services. It points to economic and industrial espionage as areas of particular concern.
Deal for “Peace” in the Mideast
US Special Mideast Envoy Jason Greenblatt said the US “peace” proposal will be unveiled in mid-June after Shavuot. Shavout is the Jewish Feast of Weeks – First fruits of the wheat harvest (Exodus 34:22), which occurs 7 weeks after Passover. Our Pentecost (day the first fruits of the Church began) occurs 7 weeks after Easter (preferably “Resurrection Day”). This year it falls on the same day as Shavout.
As the US administration prepares to roll out its long-awaited plan for “peace” in the Middle East, there are indications of growing instability and consternation in Jordan. Facing increased demands for major political and economic reforms in the kingdom, King Abdullah II seems to be worried that the kingdom will pay a heavy price whether it accepts or rejects the deal.
Some are against the Trump administration presenting the peace plan next month. Former IDF chief of staff Gadi Eisenkot, at a meeting with Jason Greenblatt and 10 Mideast experts from the Washington Institute and other think-tanks, told Greenblatt the West Bank “could erupt before, during or after you present your peace plan, and you should add this to your calculations.” Greenblatt reportedly responded that the administration is aware of the risks but intends on publishing it in the coming weeks.
Ahead of the expected release of the “peace deal,” Rev. Anthony Abma, who heads the Christians in Support of Jewish Sovereignty group, penned a letter to Trump, urging him to “respect and honor the ‘Deal of Eternity’ made thousands of years ago” between God and the nation of Israel, and not to “force a compromise upon Israel that in any way invalidates the terms of that original ‘deal’ made by the God of Creation.” He said in the letter that this “will seriously risk forfeiting the blessing of God upon the United States of America as per His own words as recorded in Gen 12:3.”
God’s will will be done, who knows the end from the beginning. It is He who puts leaders in place. And this nation and the world have obviously already passed the point of return to blessings for many reasons. It will be a man from Europe, from the same people that destroyed the Temple in 70 AD (from the Roman Empire) who will ultimately confirm a covenant with many. He will be the Antichrist (Daniel 7:19-28; 9:26-27).
Apostasy and Doctrines of Demons
Texas police raided the offices of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas Wednesday on the grounds that Catholic officials withheld information from authorities’ sex abuse investigation.
Also Promoting the Coming One-World False Religion
A Church of England in Durham said it would cover crosses to host Islamic prayers and an Iftar meal for the Muslim community. The Church of St Matthew and St Luke, Darlington, also agreed to provide separate worship space for Muslim men and women segregated worship. Local councillor Gerald Lee said, “Gathering with Muslims in a ‘Christian’ Church is an important step in bringing communities together, so we do hope that you can see the importance of this event for everyone and compromise a little by using what our church has to offer.” Sources described Vicar Lissa Scott as a “liberal” who uses “gimmicks like Café Church to offer a gospel-less diet. The parish website advertises ‘Meditation, Mindfulness, Relation’ sessions which have their basis in Buddhism.
Episcopal churches are among those bowing to Islam under the guise of unity, leading to the one-world religion prophesied in Rev 13. When you hear “interfaith” and “ecumenical,” RUN. In Queens, New York, this week an Islamic anti-Israel conference was held at an Episcopal church. Such Islamic interfaith mingling has occurred in other states as well in the Episcopal church. Research and see.
Contemplative mystic, Jean Vanier, has died at age 90. He promoted the false belief that all paths lead to God. He called the Hindu Mahatma Gandhi “one of the greatest prophets of our times” and “a man sent by God.” Vanier talked about “opening doors to other religions” and promoted mysticism as does Rick Warren to his huge flock. Warren’s “spiritual director” was trained under Jean Vanier and is, at the very least, a key to understanding many of Warren’s actions and words where he expressed support for contemplative mystics and ecumenical/interspiritual efforts aka one-world religion.
Pope Promotes Mother Earth (Gaia) worship and Global Government. In his letter, released by the Vatican, the pope urged young people to “cultivate together the dream of a new humanism” that goes beyond religion to engage all people, whether or not they believe in God. What the world needs, Francis proposed, is “a common ‘covenant,’ a process of global change.
Pope Francis wished a Happy Ramadan to Muslims, saying, “We Muslims and Christians are called to open ourselves to others, knowing and recognizing them as brothers and sisters…” The endearing use of the phrase “brothers and sisters” invokes a vision of harmony and peace together. This is not the case between Muslims and Christians globally. Too many Christians live under the worst conditions in Islamic countries, as they endure violent persecution daily under Sharia. The Pope of Islam is living a lie and promoting the same.
A number of Catholic theologians and bishops who are aghast over what they’re calling ‘the most terrible schism the world has ever seen,’ are calling Pope Francis a heretic who has hired and promoted homosexuals and covered up their crimes. They also claim he was elected by a conspiracy from the nicknamed St. Gallen “mafia” to oust the more conservative Benedict and replace him with Bergoglio (Francis) who has their same Marxist ideals. Such conspiring is against the code of Catholic canon law. Last year, a report claimed Obama and other globalists plotted to oust Benedict and put Bergoglio in.
Not to promote extra-biblical prophecies as to be compared with the Scriptures, but the linked article mentions Francis of Assisi’s prophecy centuries ago that said, during the Tribulation just before Christ returns, an evil pope would be in power, one who was “not canonically elected.”
The battle is on between those whose hearts are on the right and those whose hearts are on the left (Eccl 10:2) – a battle of good versus evil (Isaiah 5:20).
“At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it; If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them. And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it; If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them” (Jeremiah 18:7-10).
