NO COMMON SENSE IN CURRENT EVENTS
Democrat-run Cities That Have Voted So Far to Defund Police:
- New York City Council Voted to Remove 1 Billion Dollars from Police Budget. Protestors and advocates of the defunding argued the cuts didn’t go far enough.
- Los Angeles City Council approves cutting $150 Million From Police Budget. Morale among officers is tanking as in the rest of the US, grappling with “constant verbal battering.”
- Los Angeles School Police Chief Resigns After School Board Cut $25 Million in School Police Funding, Ordered All Officers Off Campus.
- Portland City Council Voted to Defund Police Budget by 15 Million. Includes elimination of Gun Violence Reduction Team, SERT team, 107 full-time positions, and ending School Resource Officer program. Organizers with Rose City Justice wanted at least $50 million defunded.
- Austin City Council Voted to Partially Defund Police Budget. Socialist groups are protesting to take away over $100 million from the department.
- Minneapolis City Council votes unanimously for proposal that could replace Police Department.
BLM and Antifa Wreak Havoc as the Global Communist Agenda Progresses:
DC: Activists Set Up Guillotine in Front of Jeff Bezos’s Home, Call for Amazon to Be Abolished. Held by a group called “Abolish the Present; Reconstruct Our Future.”
Utah: Black Lives Matter protestors shot a 60-year-old man who was just driving through in Provo where a “protest” was going on.
Washington: In the ‘Black Lives Matter’ Seattle CHOP zone, Antonio Mays Jr., 16, and a 14-year-old boy stole a vehicle at knifepoint (They hung out with the Bloods gang but said they weren’t members.) As they drove into the CHOP zone, they were shot by CHOP gunmen. One died; one is in critical condition. This along with another shooting that left one dead and one critically injured were central to Dem leaders finally allowing police to shut the CHOP zone down this week. Last week Dem leaders went to remove barriers but were stopped by CHOP gunmen. “Protests” still continuing in the CHOP zone.
Mainstream Media ignored violence in Seattle CHOP zone, claim it was ‘peaceful’ protests. They ignored the killings, rapes and robberies.
We’ve Got a Country to Save (Video). Larry Elder, talk radio host and attorney, said, “All the killings in our community ain’t coming from white people. We’re killing one another. Our old people are scared to come out at night…they’re not scared of white people; they’re scared of young black boys…”
There were protests on July 4 against Independence Day. A debate broke out on The Ingraham show about the holiday and whether or not the black experience has improved over the last few centuries. Activist Scotty Smart said nothing great has been done for blacks since 1776, when the Declaration of Independence was signed. Horace Cooper, Project 21 co-chair, disagreed, saying, “There are a number of black Americans throughout history who stood on the side of freedom and liberty. This celebration is for everyone who supports liberty.” There are a number of black people not buying into this mess; they realize the Communist agenda behind it to divide and conquer this nation.
London: City Spins Out of Control as Met Police Abandon Streets. Excerpts: [It’s the same in Britain as it is in the US] – combination of Covid restrictions, hands-off police policy, and subsequent breakdown of law and order. It’s a Marxist agenda. US and Britain are at their most perilous point in 100 years, but it’s been building since the 60s through university teaching systems. Trump has been targeted by a coup even before his presidency began. History is no longer ‘right,’ facts are no longer facts but interpretations. All opposition is being de-platformed, demonetized and silenced by the tyranny of the social media monopolies of Google, Facebook, and Twitter in the lurch to totalitarianism. This is a choice. Choose civilization, free speech, the Constitution and rule of law, defend it vociferously, or you let it all crumble to dust and be taken over by the radical left, who’ll have power over you until death.
LAST DAYS TRAITORS
Democrats Targeted Mount Rushmore as Symbol of ‘White Supremacy.’ The Dem Party tweeted, then deleted an attack on Mount Rushmore, negatively portraying the event President Trump planned for July 4 at the monument. The move by Dems to put the monument to Washington, Jefferson, T. Roosevelt, and Lincoln in the crosshairs by claiming it represents “white supremacy,” when it clearly does not, may go too far for some voters.
Todd Starnes points out their hypocrisy. Hours before President Trump was scheduled to speak at Mount Rushmore, CNN’s Leyla Santiago called it a “monument of two slave owners and on land wrestled away from Native Americans.” But when Obama visited the site, CNN called it “majestic.” In 2008, CNN’s Jim Acosta noted Obama’s visit was a “fitting campaign stop for a presidential contender.” In 2016, CNN’s Jeff Zeleny called it a “monument to four great American Presidents.” “This is our country at its very best. What a wonderful achievement,” Sen. Bernie Sanders told CNN. CNN and Mainstream Media news outlets didn’t condemn Dem leaders for visiting the monument. Yet they target President Trump.
How Democrats are on Their Way to Stealing Election 2020. “If Democrats get their way and are able to use Coronavirus and street mobs to impose their MAIL-IN-VOTE, it’s you who’ll end up in prison—the soul-killing Democrat-manufactured prison called Marxism.”
COVID-19 Hype Is Essential to the Democrat Agenda. Without COVID-19 panic, Democrats can’t easily achieve ‘mail-in’ voting, which they need in battleground states to control the outcome – can’t block the campaign contrast between an energetic President Trump and a mentally compromised challenger – and can’t keep their Blue state economies easily shut-down and continue to block U.S. economic growth. All thriving economies are against political interests of Democrat leaders.
Exposing Racist Billionaires Behind Riots. The puppet masters pulling the strings – globalist and racist billionaires such as Soros’ and Rockefellers who want a New World Order.
Obama administration’s ‘takedown’ of Flynn prevented him from exposing CIA corruption. Sidney Powell, attorney for Gen. Michael Flynn, said her client, in his duties as White House national security adviser, was prepared to “audit” the US intelligence community in the Obama administration.
Officer fired for social media post on his personal page about definition of “privilege.” Edwin Myrick had shared a post that was a definition of “privilege” which didn’t go along with current social mores propagated by far-left organizations railing against “white privilege.” Myrick’s repost asserted that privilege can be getting a lot of free things from the government and not having to work.
About New York Times Claim That Russia Offered Bounties to Taliban-Linked Militants to Kill American Troops in Afghanistan. Nancy Pelosi responded that she didn’t know “what the Russians have on the president politically, personally, financially or whatever it is.” Senator John Kennedy, member of the Judiciary Committee, is skeptical. He said, “We have no indication, no evidence that the story is accurate… New York Times would support a dead raccoon over a Republican if the raccoon had a ‘D’ behind its name.” He also blasted Pelosi for her immature remark.
‘Russian bounty’ story shifts: New York Times now claims Afghan CRIMINALS & not Taliban were paid, cites anonymous sources again. Fake News, exposed, keeps changing the story.
LAST DAYS RETURN TO DAYS OF LOT
Petition to Replace Christopher Columbus Monument In New Jersey With Statue of Black Trans Activist. Activists in Elizabeth, New Jersey, want to replace a Columbus monument with one to Marsha Johnson, a black trans icon. Activists started a petition that has over 95,000 signatures. This week, Google created a Doodle to honor Johnson and donated $500,000 to the Marsha Johnson Institute. Last year NYC’s Mayor de Blasio & First Lady Chirlane McCray announced funding for the next She Built NYC monument to honor trans activists Marsha Johnson and Sylvia Rivera, leaders in the Stonewall Uprising that sparked the gay liberation movement.
Over 277,000 Signed Petition to Block the Movie Habit Portraying Jesus as a Woman (some say a lesbian). Michael Jackson’s daughter Paris, who plays Jesus, is in real life bisexual. Bella Thorne, who plays a woman with a “Jesus fetish” and disguises herself as a nun, in real life describes herself as “pansexual.” Trans model Andrea Pejic also has a role. The website “Pink News” headline states “More than 250,000 bigots complained about Paris Jackson playing a lesbian ‘gender-bending’ Jesus.’
Ghislaine Maxwell arrested: How Jeffrey Epstein’s madam groomed his victims. Epstein’s longtime confidant and former girlfriend faces sex abuse charges involving underage girls as young as 14. She “groomed” them and offered gifts, etc., to get them to travel to Epstein’s island. She “normalized sexual abuse” by discussing sexual topics, undressing in front of them, or being present during sexual encounters with the girls and Epstein, which “helped put victims at ease since an adult woman was present.” This news story was ignored by CNN’s primetime. She Will Name Names, “assuming she doesn’t wind up with the means to kill herself in her jail cell, and assuming those who are supposed to be watching her 24/7 won’t be taking well-timed coffee breaks.”
US District Judge Orders Jeffrey Epstein Accuser Virginia Giuffre to Destroy Files believed to contain names of Epstein’s associates, claiming they were “improperly obtained.’ How convenient.
Seattle City Council Unanimously Votes to Repeal Drug Traffic and Prostitution Loitering Laws. Council member Andrew Lewis, lead sponsor of the repeal, said, “These laws were never appropriate; they were wrong when they were enacted and they are wrong now.” Seattle’s City Council thinks they know what’s right and wrong better than God does.
Little social distancing at an enormous Black Trans Lives Matter rally in Brooklyn. This right after Gov. Cuomo’s threat against restaurants and bars if they break quarantine rules.
London: ‘Black Trans Lives Matter’ Protesters. BLM and LGBTQ activists called for abolishing police and ending capitalism. Hundreds took to the streets, despite the ban on such gatherings due to Covid.
Taiwan LGBT pride parade ‘for the world’ when most countries cancelled them due to coronavirus. Over 200 “marched for the world” for LGBT pride. Organizer Darien Chen said it was an honor to march.
PLAGUE AND FAMINE
U.S. Customs and Border Protection in Cincinnati, Ohio, seized 530 pounds of synthetic drugs from China heading to Colorado, largest ever seizure of synthetic drugs in the Port of Cincinnati.
India: Locusts sweep into Delhi suburb Gurgaon, the first time this area has seen a locust invasion. India is witnessing its worst invasion in decades. The swarms, which originated in the Horn of Africa, have devoured crops in several states. If not controlled, desert locusts destroy food supplies and can cause famine. Current infestations trace back to the cyclone season of 2018-19 that brought heavy rains to the Arabian Peninsula. That allowed at least three generations of “unprecedented breeding.” Swarms since spread to East Africa, Middle East and South Asia.
Nepal: After fall armyworm havoc and Covid-19, locust invasion is new threat to food security. Massive invasions could spell catastrophe for Nepal where food production is already low.
Over-Counting of Coronavirus Cases and False Positives:
- Accuracy of coronavirus tests questioned after PGA golfer Cameron Champ tests positive, then negative. As new confirmed coronavirus cases jump in several US states, some question whether inaccurate tests artificially inflate counts. Even the leftist website The Atlantic reported that CDC was over-counting the number of cases of coronavirus.
- Elon Musk Urges COVID-19 Retests Due to ‘Ridiculous Number’ of False Positives.
- Covid Coverage Cherry-Picking. “This is a game that’s been going on since the earliest days of the COVID-19 outbreak. Since we’re (correctly) under the impression that it’s overwhelmingly a disease of the elderly with pre-existing conditions, notwithstanding claims that it’s ‘posing a universal risk,’ the MSM sees it as a solemn obligation to find outliers and twist numbers.”
Bill Gates: Philanthropist or Scoundrel? From Alex Newman: “My investigative report on Bill Gates… raises serious concerns about his true agenda. Find out what the fake media is hiding from you before subjecting yourself and your family to his vaccines.”
Covid Depopulation Agenda?
Death by killing old people, not COVID: the basic deception. They’ve died in nursing homes, in isolated apartments and houses around the world, and in hospitals. And on their bodies is built this vicious war against the population of the planet. New York Times reported that 43% of US COVID deaths have occurred in nursing homes and other long-term elderly care facilities and that in at least 24 states over 50% of COVID deaths occurred in these facilities. The situation is far worse than New York Times makes it out to be. It failed to mention elderly deaths at hospitals or at home, cut off from family and friends.
Sweden discriminates against elderly with COVID-19; ‘active euthanasia,’ critics say. Reports say the elderly with coronavirus were denied crucial medical care and pushed into premature death in nursing homes.
How convenient corona for Communist complicitors. Get rid of older folks considered a drain on the system (after having paid into social security all their working lives); knock out older folks as they’re likely to be Trump voters in the US (only nation in the way of globalism); and further globalists’ depopulation agendas.
US: Fourth of July weekend heat wave. “The first half of July looks to have well-above-normal temperatures beginning around July 4,” said Jon Gottschalck from the National Weather Service. The blast of heat could create a “ring of fire” pattern in which storms circulating the edges of the heat dome spawn powerful thunderstorms, particularly over the northern Plains. “Models indicate this is going to be somewhat persistent through the first two weeks of July, and potentially longer,” he said.
Oregon: Drought emergency declared for seven counties, but Jefferson County farmers may feel the brunt of the conditions on the High Desert.
Tennessee & Mississippi: Flash floods due to heavy rain, as much as 10 inches in some places on July 1.
Utah: Wildfires: As of June 29, the state has seen 537 fires in 2020, over 425 started by humans. Officials attribute it to a record-dry spring and more people recreating outdoors due to coronavirus. “In Utah it’s the 3rd driest spring on record,” said Kait Webb, spokesperson for Utah Division of Forestry. “We haven’t gotten a lot of precipitation, so vegetation is really dry across the state.”
Puerto Rico: Worsening drought forces state of emergency. Starting July 2, nearly 140,000 will be without water for 24 hours every other day as part of rationing.
Finland: Severe summer storm Päivö brought heavy rain, thunderstorms, and wind gusts up to 97 km/h (60 mph) to many parts of the country on June 30.
Brazil: Extratropical bomb cyclone’ on June 30 killed at least 10 people. Winds up to 110 km/h (68 mph) blew away roofing and power lines, resulting in disruptions to almost 1 million. Over 1,000 residents forced to evacuate.
China: As torrential rain ravages southern China for the second straight month, a massive flood of the Yangtze River Basin threatens to further overload Three Gorges Dam. The region continues to be battered by heavy flooding and landslides. Residents accuse the government of sacrificing them by releasing waters and flooding them. 12 million people affected, 78 killed as severe floods continue. Heavy rains and floods left at least 12 dead and 10 missing in Sichuan province as of June 28. Since late May, severe weather has left 78 dead or missing, 12 million affected, over 8,000 homes destroyed, and 97,000 damaged.
Japan: At least 14 feared dead in flooded care home in Kyushu as unprecedented rainfall caused landslides and massive floods. Tens of thousands told to evacuate. Kuma river burst its banks.
Russia: Media continues to report on devasting wildfires in Siberia due to record-breaking heat, but the weather forecast doesn’t jive with the reports.
India: Flood situation remains grim in Assam with over 1.4 million people affected as of July 2. Six more fatalities due to flooding, adding to death toll of 33; casualties due to landslides rose to 24.
California: A 5.8 earthquake rumbled through Tulare County on June 24, kicking off a cluster of aftershocks.
Iceland: Mysterious Earthquake Swarm Hits 9,000 In Less Than 2 Weeks. The swarm could be related to Iceland’s most active volcano.
Turkey: Seesawing between earthquakes and floods. Turkey has become familiar with a pattern in which it experiences low magnitude quakes more frequently. Since autumn, casualty-causing earthquakes have hit eastern towns and cities, while lower magnitude tremors occurred in western parts of the country. Also, during May and June Turkey experienced floods and hailstorms that caused casualties and damage to crops.
GLOBAL WARNING AKA CLIMATE CHANGE AGENDA: RUSE FOR GLOBAL GOVERNMENT
Forbes Censors Award-Winning Environmentalist’s Apology Over Three-Decade ‘Climate Scare’ – So Here It Is. A 2012 Forbes article was titled “Climate Change: Hoax or Crime of The Century?” Now Forbes has sold out to the globalists. You can read the environmentalist’s entire apology for all the bogusness at the title link. But here’s a small excerpt: Humans are not causing a “sixth mass extinction.” The Amazon is not “the lungs of the world.” Climate change is not making natural disasters worse. Build-up of wood fuel and more houses near forests, not climate change, explains more dangerous fires in Australia and California…. Once you realize how badly misinformed we’ve been, often by people with plainly unsavory or unhealthy motivations, it is hard not to feel duped.
US Jobs Report for June. June’s better-than-expected employment report showed the US economy added 4.8 million jobs, reducing the unemployment rate to 11.1%. CNN didn’t report this.
2020 Economic Predictions: This Series of Unfortunate Events Guarantees Epocalypse. From David Haggith: “The troubles listed here…are so severe and so likely to get even worse that it’s more difficult to imagine they won’t get worse than to believe they will. Just a few of these misfortunes would be enough to plunge us into an abyss of social and financial catastrophes.
Editor’s note: No matter what, brethren, remember God is in control. People will be buying and selling and going about their daily business [reduced or not] when Jesus intervenes (see Luke 17:26-30).
Will Deep State “Contact Tracing” End Privacy? “Alex Newman exposes Deep State organizations and individuals working to shred privacy and invade homes with “contact tracing.” From HR 6666 and phone apps for tracking… and home visits splitting up families, the agenda is totalitarian to the core. Yet, with very little resistance, this scheme is moving forward at state and global levels under the World Health Organization. Clinton, Soros, Gates, and other globalists are involved.
CASHLESS SOCIETY LOOMING LARGER
Fed Begins Rationing Coins. Having closed the US Mint and halted production (blaming COVID-19) after a surge in demand for gold and silver coins, and warning of the danger of using bills (again blaming the pandemic and choosing to “quarantine” cash for the sake of Americans’ health), Fed Chair Powell quietly admitted this week that the Fed will ration coins as the circulation of coins across the US economy ground to a halt due to the pandemic.
Major Supermarket Chain Stops Accepting Cash as Nationwide Coin Shortage Erupts. Meijer Inc., a supermarket chain based in the Midwest, announced self-scan checkout machines at 250 supercenters would only accept credit or debit cards, SNAP and EBT cards, and gift cards.
WARS AND RUMORS OF WAR
Putin scores victory; may hold power until 2036. Russian voters approved the change to the constitution, but there are widespread reports of pressure on voters and other irregularities.
The Russians Keep Coming. US fighter jets intercepted four Russian military aircraft entering the Alaskan Air Defense Identification Zone (ADIZ) on June 27. This year alone, NORAD forces have identified and intercepted Russian military aircraft including bombers, fighters, and maritime patrol aircraft on ten separate occasions when they’ve flown into the ADIZ.
Russian Mercenaries Have Entered Libya’s Largest Oil Field to Block Output. Putin wants to control the world’s oil. Since last year it’s widely reported that Russian mercenary firm, the Kremlin-based Wagner Group, is embedded with pro-Haftar forces. Now, the NOC (National Oil Company) in Libya says Russia is meddling in its domestic production.
Europe On Alert After Unknown Radioactivity Spike Detected Over Baltic Sea. Last year Russia admitted releasing significant radiation that triggered alerts in far north Arctic Circle port cities after a failed weapons test involving a “small-scale nuclear reactor” that killed Russian scientists. Now another reports of radiation sensors in Scandinavia picking up abnormal radioactivity.
Erdogan’s agenda: Neo-Ottoman ambition or pan-Islamist zeal? Those who focus on religious freedom know whenever Turkey moves in, religious freedom moves out. Turkish aggression in at least five countries has been headlined in news reports this month, focusing on Erdogan’s latest intrusions into Israel, Libya, Iraq, Syria and Greece.
Syria Prepares for Military Confrontation with Turkey in Northeast. The Syrian Army and National Defense Forces are on high alert in response to the new round of aggressive actions by the Turkish Army and its proxies in northeast Syria.
Persia’s and its Proxies’ Provocation
More sanctions needed to stop Iran from attaining nuclear weapons. US Special Representative for Iran Brian Hook said Israel and the US “see eye to eye” on extending the arms embargo. “In four short months, Iran will be able to freely import fighter jets, attack helicopters, warships, submarines, large-caliber artillery systems and missiles of certain ranges. Iran will then be in a position to export these weapons and their technologies to their proxies, such as Hezbollah, ‘Palestine’ Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Shia militia groups in Iraq, Syria militant networks in Bahrain and to the Houthis in Yemen.” US and Saudi governments made a public appeal to the UN Security Council to extend the arms embargo on Iran or risk a renewed arms race in the Middle East.
US would consider military option to stop Iran getting nukes if needed. U.S. envoy Brian Hook said the Trump administration is working on extending the arms embargo on Iran, and says Russia and China should be on board if they want stability in the Middle East.
New analysis suggests Iran may be developing a new missile variant that can strike Europe’s heartland, and is disguising it as a space launch vehicle.
Saudi-led coalition starts military operation against Iran-backed Yemen’s Houthis in retaliation for cross-border missile and drone attacks on Saudi Arabia.
Kuwait (Iran’s ally) newspaper reported that an Israeli cyber attack caused an explosion at Iran’s Natanz nuclear facility causing Iran to lose 80% of gas it needs to enrich uranium. The report also blamed Israel for the Parchin in Iran blast last week. Iran’s state news agency warned that “if there are signs of hostile countries crossing Iran’s red lines in any way, especially the Zionist regime (Israel) and the US, Iran’s strategy to confront the situation must be reconsidered. Yet Iran had claimed the incident was an “accident and fire,” and hadn’t linked it to Israel. The spokesman for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization said there were no injuries, “no interruption to the work of the enrichment site itself.”
Israel on Brink of War with Iran & its proxy Hezbollah, Top Israeli Official Believes. Former Israeli Defense Minister Lieberman expressed concern about Iran possessing enriched uranium eight times the permitted amount per the nuclear deal, launching a spy satellite, and continued funding of terrorist groups, including Hezbollah building a precision missile factory. He claims Netanyahu has no plans to confront them; however, Israel has intensified attacks against Iran’s forces and allies in Syria this year.
Alleged Israeli airstrike in Syria targeting pro-Iranian militias in Al-Abbas. The town is a key weapons conduit where Iran has a network of pro-Iranian militias. The Iranian Quds Force commander was there hours earlier and made a statement threatening Israel, that Iran would continue to fight the “Zionist regime” and the US, and said the US and Israel supported ISIS – Ridiculous lie, of course.
Turkey and Iran work together on Iraq and Libya; is Israel next? Then there’s Russia which has hosted Iran and Turkey regarding Syria, and met again Wednesday. Despite differences, they share opposition to the US role in Syria. Russia and Turkey are both involved in Libya. We see all this leading up to the fulfillment of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39.
Kings of the East Elevation Agenda
India Deploys ‘Quick Reaction’ Anti-Air Missiles to Border While China Warns Of “Prolonged Standoff.”Both sides continue military build-up despite delegations trying to reestablish escalation avoidance.
Many have abandoned Judeo-Christian values, approve of lawlessness, treachery, and depravity, including the murder of babies in the womb, and they’re railing against Israel. Need we wonder why times are so perilous?
Supreme Court strikes down Louisiana law regulating abortion clinics, that had required abortion providers be held to similar standards as ambulatory surgical centers. The high court ruled that abortion providers don’t need stricter standards, that they don’t need admitting privileges to hospitals in case of complications. Biden agreed with the ruling. Those who claim to care about “women’s heath” don’t care any more than they do about murdering babies in the womb.
Supreme Court Denies Pro-Life Free Speech, Okays Laws Banning Sidewalk Counseling at Abortion Clinics. Justices refused to hear cases involving pro-life advocates’ freedom to speak on public sidewalks outside abortion facilities.
Supreme Court Overturned Indiana Law That Saved Babies from Abortion. They overturned a law that allowed women a chance to see an ultrasound of their baby before an abortion. Such laws had helped women and saved countless lives of unborn children.
Leftist Group MoveOn Endorses Joe Biden Because He Supports Abortion on Demand. In their endorsement, MoveOn praised Biden for running the ‘most progressive platform’ ever, which includes tax increases, job-killing regulations of the Green New Deal, free healthcare for illegal aliens, liberal judges, and abortion on demand.
California Governor Bans Singing in Church, But Abortion Clinics Remain Open. Leftist governors across the US have taken advantage of the coronavirus lockdown by banning most church gatherings, then severely restricting their gatherings and no singing. Many of these same governors openly support Black Lives Matter masses of rioters, and of course they keep those abortion clinics open.
HATRED OF CHRIST, HATRED OF GOD
Christians and Jews are openly persecuted in the US while Black Lives Matter and Antifa militants are given special treatment. This is Marxism. NYC Mayor de Blasio defended his decision to ban religious gatherings while allowing Black Lives Matter militants and Antifa terrorists to raise hell in the streets.
Why Rioters Will Eventually Turn Their Rage on Christianity If Not Stopped. The outrage over statues and ‘white’ depictions of Christ is meant to detract us from the real endgame: ‘canceling’ of Christianity.
From Godless CNN: Chris Cuomo Tell Americans They Don’t Need God (VIDEO). He said if you believe in each other, you don’t need help from above (as he pointed up); he said you need to do the right thing for yourselves and your community for things to get better. This is totally opposite of what scripture tells us. Maybe this self-professed Catholic should actually read the Bible.
Man charged with tearing down Montana Courthouse Ten Commandments monument with chain and pickup truck. 30-year-old Anthony Weimer faces a felony charge of criminal mischief.
In China, Believers Forced to Choose Between Faith or Survival. Elderly Christians are deprived of government subsidies if they practice their faith. Also, pictures and statues of Jesus have been removed from Catholic homes. Though we Protestants know we shouldn’t have such images or statues according to the Bible, Chinas government only wants worship of its Communist regime.
In China, 200 communist officials demolished a church and beat Christians. A Christian man was arrested and at least two women injured after officials stormed Sunzhuang Church, part of a network of government-run churches, and destroyed it with heavy-duty machinery. Authorities have removed crosses from over 250 state-sanctioned churches in Anhui province between January and April.
In India, Christian pastor beaten by 150-strong Hindu mob while praying for the sick. International Christian Concern has recorded at least eight separate attacks on Christians in the two weeks following partial lifting of the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. Attackers accused the pastor of illegally converting Hindus to Christianity. “They said India is a Hindu nation, and there is no place for Christians.”
EARTH AND SKY
Global Magnetic Anomaly Rocked Earth’s Magnetic Field. Lately, Earth’s magnetic field has been very quiet with the sun in what may turn out to be the deepest Solar Minimum in a century. Geomagnetic storms just aren’t happening. But on June 23rd, Earth’s quiet magnetic field was unexpectedly disturbed by a wave of magnetism that rippled around much of the globe. There was no solar storm or geomagnetic storm to cause the disturbance. So what was it? “For more than 30 minutes, the local magnetic field oscillated like a sine wave.”
HATRED OF JEWS AND ISRAEL, AND MESSING WITH GOD’S LAND
One bit of good news: 20 MPs from Europe, Latin America, Africa sign pro-annexation letter. The signatories, who are leaders of the Israel Allies Caucuses in their countries, signed the letter on the date when Netanyahu is allowed to bring annexation to the Knesset.
Biden’s foreign-policy boss called for anti-Israel DNC platform. Democrats try to sell pro-Israel Jews on Joe Biden, but the campaign has already sold them out. Jewish Democrats want to convince American Jews that Biden will be friendly to Israel, but his latest move again sends a different message. His transition team includes Avril Haines, Obama’s deputy CIA director, to head foreign policy and national security should Dems usurp the presidency. Bringing in Haines to serve under former CIA director John Brennan was a blatant attempt to embed an Obama loyalist near the top of the CIA. And Haines has stayed loyal to her former boss. Haines’s role on foreign policy for Biden signals that the DNC platform and his administration would take an anti-Israel direction.
Netanyahu ally confirms delays in West Bank annexation plan. Ofir Akunis says Israeli officials are still working out final details with their American counterparts, but he expects the controversial move to take place later this month.
Thousands attending anti-Israel rallies across U.S. over annexation plans show hatred of Jews and Israel. So-called ‘Palestinians’ earlier in the week announced plans for a “Day of Rage” to coincide with Israel’s annexation vote in the Knesset. A Brooklyn rally shows an organizer fuming against a 2-state solution, shouting, ‘We want it all,’ ‘we don’t want your Jew state,’ and calling for an intifada (holy war). Anti-Israel protesters in DC shouted ‘Israel murders children.’ Neturei Karta, an ultra-Orthodox group of Haredi Jews that deem Israel to be an illegitimate state, turned up for the Brooklyn rally. They believe a true Israel can only be established with the coming of the Messiah (they’re not talking about Jesus). If they read the Bible properly, they’d know God has brought the Jews back to their land in the last days.
Democrats continue to threaten Israel over annexation plans. Yet another letter from Dems was sent to Secretary of State Pompeo, urging monetary reductions to Israel if it extends sovereignty to the West Bank (Judea and Samaria). The letter orchestrated by Ocasio-Cortez has thus far been signed by Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib, Washington state’s Pramila Jayapal and Minnesota’s Betty McCollum, and Vermont’s Bernie Sanders. This follows a letter sent by 19 Senate Democrats urging removing US military assistance to Israel. Biden also opposes Israel’s annexation plan. Leaders of other nations also oppose annexation such as UK’s Boris Johnson; and the Dutch parliament urges sanctions against Israel.
UK Labour calls to ban Israeli settlement imports in response to annexation of parts of the West Bank. This is a “major step,” foreign secretary Lisa Nandy said, adding that “such a blatant breach of international law must have consequences.”
Russia welcomed pledge of unity between Fatah and Hamas against Israel annexation plan. The two groups held a rare joint press conference in which they pledged a campaign against Israel’s plans to apply sovereignty in parts of Judea and Samaria.
Netanyahu: I am ready for “peace” talks with ‘Palestinians.’ Last Sunday, Netanyahu said annexation would only advance stalled “peace” negotiations, and urges ‘Palestinians’ not ‘to waste another decade in the attempt to eradicate Israel.’
‘Palestinians’ offer negotiations just before planned annexation. Stalling tactic or coming “peace” deal with a ‘Palestinian’ state? Just before the PA thought Israel was to put its annexation plan in action on July 1, it sent a letter to the Middle East Quartet, saying it’s prepared to renew negotiations with Israel and agree to “minor territorial exchanges,” but its counter-offer won’t be relevant if Israel begins annexation.” [FYI to the PA: It’s not your land.] The document details what the PA would be willing to accept within a “peace” agreement, noting they’re “willing to have a state with a limited amount of weapons and a strong police force for maintaining law and order,” adding they’d accept an international entity, such as NATO, to receive a mandate from the UN for supervising the “peace” agreement, if and when it happens.
Apocalyptic Scenario: Are we heading for the Bible’s great end-time conflict? From the article: “The Jewish state’s proposed ‘annexation’ of the Jordan Valley with parts of Judea and Samaria – despite being the heart of ancient Israel – is causing hackles to rise again among the nations…. In any case, the ‘Palestinians’ have no legal right to the land…. Are we not in enough trouble, facing economic meltdown post-COVID amidst a breakdown in law and order while our history is being torn apart and re-written?… But we still have a chance to redeem ourselves by backing Israel’s plans in Judea… Restoration of Israel at the end of the age, the Bible promises, will be accompanied by ever-increasing violence, lawlessness and earth-shaking events. All of us, including politicians and preachers, need to ensure we’re ready for Jesus’ coming.”
Vatican summons US, Israeli envoys over annexation moves. Meetings with Pietro Parolin, Vatican secretary of state, US Ambassador Gingrich, and Israeli Ambassador David took place Tuesday. Parolin met the envoys separately. He expressed “the concern of the [so-called] Holy See regarding possible unilateral actions that may further jeopardize the search for peace between Israelis and ‘Palestinians,’ as well as the delicate situation in the Middle East.” The Vatican reiterated its position in support of a two-state solution, saying “Israel and the State of Palestine have the right to exist and to live in peace and security, within internationally recognized borders.” [No such thing as a State of Palestine; never has been, regardless of the Vatican recognizing it. God does not recognize it!]
Peace and security? What does God have to say about that to true believers in Christ? “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness…. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do” (1 Thessalonians 5:1-11).
