Rabbi Glick: Ben Gvir ascending to Temple Mount may bring Zechariah’s prophecy
On Tuesday morning, National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir (Otzma Yehudit Party) ascended to the Temple Mount to commemorate the Tenth of Tevet, the fast day commemorating the siege of Jerusalem by Nebuchadnezzar that led to the destruction of the Temple. Former MK Rabbi Yehudah Glick asked whether this event may trigger Zechariah’s prophecy.

ANALYSIS: Jewish Gog and Magog vs. Christian Gog and Magog
Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-day author and speaker, explained the Jewish perspective. “One purpose of Gog and Magog is that when it is over, evil will be entirely defeated,” he said. “There will be no more evil in the world. Since Mount Sinai, the Jewish people have been rectifying certain things since creation. We are preparing the world so that it gets to the point where everyone says that they recognize the Biblical God as One. We never completed the task so Gog and Magog is the final point where everything comes together.”

Everybody missed it: Bombshell Huckabee announcement – Supremes could flip 2020, boot Biden
What the plaintiff/appellant, Raland Brunson of Ogden, Utah, and his three brothers seek is nothing less than the removal of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris from office, arguing members of Congress failed to fulfill their constitutional duty on Jan. 6, 2021 by not reviewing allegations of fraud in the 2020 presidential election. “Sit down; I guarantee this Supreme Court story is real,” Huckabee wrote.

Why Macron has turned his focus to foreign policy
Within this context, Macron has launched into shuttle diplomacy, attending his second state dinner at the White House and then seeking a middle path between Iran and its Arab neighbors in Amman, while stopping to scoop up the limelight at Qatar’s World Cup final in between. The president seems indefatigable, with visits to India and Japan and another to the US already in the offing for 2023. Aside from his domestic travails, central to Macron’s foreign policy ambitions is what has become known as the “Macron doctrine.”

Britain to officially designate IRGC a terrorist organization
…the move is expected to be announced within weeks and is supported by British security minister and Home Secretary. Proscribing the group means it would become a criminal offense to belong to the IRGC, attend its meetings, carry its logo in public or encourage support of its activities.

Humanity is not sustainable’: Network airs apocalyptic predictions to ring in new year
Ehrlich, a Stanford University professor, said humanity was not sustainable and reiterated his concerns that the planet’s human population was crowding out the natural environment to our own peril. Ehrlich, 1968: “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death.” 1970: “In 10 years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct.” 1971: “I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.”

How did electric vehicles handle America’s Arctic blast?
More Americans are also learning that frigid temperatures affect EVs differently than internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles, chiefly by cutting into their driving range to a greater extent. While a typical ICE vehicle might have its range reduced by 15% to 25% in below-freezing temperatures, an EV’s range will be slashed 20% to 50% depending upon driving speed, temperature, and interior climate preferences.

Chinese aircraft carrier nears US territory of Guam
The Chinese aircraft carrier Liaoning made a rare approach to the U.S. island territory of Guam in what a Chinese newspaper interpreted as a warning to the U.S. over Taiwan.

Kabbalist dismisses gloomy Doomsday Clock
The clock is currently set to 23:58:20, 100 seconds away from doomsday, the closest it has ever been to midnight since its inception in 1947. And while the scientists warn that global threats have increased, one rabbi Kabbalist dismissed the scientific evaluation, explaining that “until God’s mercy ends, the world cannot end, no matter what men do.” Established by scientists, the bulletin touted technology as the potential savior of mankind from the threats that had originated from technology. Misinformation on the internet and artificial intelligence were listed as threats to mankind. The bulletin also listed the overturning of Roe v. Wade as an existential threat to humanity (wait what?)

Millet is Having a Moment. Is the Ancient Grain Ready for a Resurgence?
The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) has declared 2023 the international year of millets, praising the grain’s ability to grow in arid soil with minimal inputs. For many farmers, 2023 could be the year they first meet millet. But Jean Hediger is wondering what took everyone else so long to catch up. Although millet is not as well known as other cereal crops such as wheat and rice, it’s considered to be an ancient crop, first cultivated in Asia more than 4,000 years ago.
