4-19-16: The Fix Is In

This will be an overglorified follow-up to yesterday’s blog. I would recommend reading this first before jumping in to today’s: https://banditzlayer.wordpress.com/2016/04/18/4-18-16-too-much-shakin-going-on/
MIDDLE EAST:

http://www.jpost.com/Arab-Israeli-Conflict/Hezbollah-condemns-Israels-scheme-to-divide-Syria-following-PMs-vow-to-keep-Golan-451690
Hezbollah condemns Israel’s scheme to divide Syria  (Golan Heights)

Obviously we have a lot of unhappy campers and growing agitation over Netanyahu’s firm stance on keeping the Golan.    Hamas is upset. Hezbollah is upset.

Apparently the US government is also upset:

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/04/19/biden-slams-netanyahu-hours-after-jerusalem-attack.html?intcmp=hpbt1

Here is Joe Biden slipping out with the real truth of how this government is operating and how they view things. The anger and disgust on his face as he did another one of his demagogue routines speaks for itself.

What’s especially classless about this is we aren’t 24 hours removed from yet another terrorist attack against Israel in Jerusalem but I guess that’s their fault, too, right Joe?  A supposed ally of the USA is fresh off an attack and this is the best you can do? Really?

Make no mistake: He’s speaking for the bulk of the American government at minimum. Joe is known for slipping out candid truths when he’s not supposed to.  The gaffe machine lets another one go here. Make no mistake: This is where are things are at.

What is Obama going to say and do at the UN on Friday?

This is the view of the New World Order.

(Some of you may recognize this. A little levity despite the serious subject matter. 🙂 )

They are all singing from the same hymnal and it’s not a heavenly one.

http://www.thetower.org/3251-hamas-palestinian-islamic-jihad-praise-jerusalem-terror-attack/

Hamas praises attacks in Jerusalem

Sure, why not? It’s all semantics. They probably were in on it but aren’t dumb enough to outright claim responsibility. Not yet.

These are all the same types of elements with one goal in mind: Destruction of Israel and the Jews.  They don’t care about peace or co-existence.

SYRIAN OFFICIALS ACCUSE ISRAEL OF AIDING ISIS AND AL QUAIDA

This is some of the craziest Bizarro World stuff I’ve run into yet and that’s saying something:  They really are accusing Israel of working WITH ISIS and Al Quaida? Really? Think about it.  This is sheer desperation at best.  How can anyone with more than two brain cells believe tripe like this?

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4793821,00.html
“‘EU doesn’t recognize Israeli occupation of the Golan’

Federica Mogherini stresses that the European Union ‘recognizes Israel within its pre-1967 boundaries, regardless of the (Israeli) government’s claims on other areas.’ ”

Again, we hear from another component of the New World Order, bluntly stated. This is how they view Israel, at best.
Speaking of New World Order:  (notice a theme today?)
http://www.thetower.org/3195-report-un-office-coordinates-millions-in-donations-to-anti-israel-groups
Report: UN Office Coordinates Millions in Donations to Anti-Israel Groups

It’s no surprise that the UN would have numerous proxies and monies going towards anything anti-Israel.    Does anyone really believes this is a neutral organization?  I so wish the USA would get out of it and kick them off our soils but I know that’s a pipe dream.    Israel should consider the same but I suspect that, too, is also fantasy.

ODDITY:

Look up April 19-20 in world history and you will see a rather impressive laundry list.  Does it mean anything? Who is to say except it’s a rather impressive and diverse list that for my money certainly goes into uncanny territory at least. Make of it what you will.

Putting that on the table with an upcoming Passover off the heels of major and unusual earthquake activity that even has scientists perplexed just makes me wonder.   Certainly odds are that this coming weekend will come and go and everything will be status quo.  But what if it isn’t? All we can do is watch. Just be aware of these things and take it for whatever it’s worth.

Given the past week’s worth of events with this kind of anecdote in my brain and Passover coming up at the end of this week I just have to wonder what’s going to happen, if anything.   We’ll find out soon enough.

SCRIPTURE:
◄ Zechariah 12 ►

Jerusalem will Be Attacked  

1The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.

2   Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem. 3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. 5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

6In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem. 7The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah. 8In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. 9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

^^ I don’t want to be on the wrong side of that equation, do you?   Pray for the peace of Jerusalem and all that it entails. 🙂

The Obama Administration is FINALLY admitting that, no duh, ISIS is committing awful atrocities and possibly even “genocide” in Syria!  No kidding?!

 

TURKEY-RUSSIA-KURDS MESS:

Note the dates and timestamps on the stories.

YESTERDAY: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-03-17/syria-ambassador-to-the-un-says-russian-forces-redeploying/7252816
Syria’s ambassador to the UN says Russian forces ‘redeploying’, labels opposition chief a ‘terrorist
Whoopsie!  I think someone let the cat out of the bag perhaps?  Russia may be pulling back some of their ground troops but if anyone thinks we’re going back to pre October 2015 conditions in the Middle East they are sorely mistaken. Russia is not leaving or going anywhere.

TODAY: https://www.rt.com/news/335949-putin-russia-op-syria/
Putin: Russia may deploy forces back to Syria ‘in mere hours’ if necessary

We may as well take it straight from Russia themselves.  Yes, they can redeploy at the drop of a hat.  I think there is some kind of feint and chess move going on here that I am not sophisticated enough to fully figure out although I think we have at least one clue here:

http://www.jpost.com/Breaking-News/Russia-supplied-weapons-to-Iraqi-Kurds-448154
Russia supplied weapons to Iraqi Kurds
In my opinion I think this Kurdish situation has something to do with the Russian posturing change.

Think “proxy war.”  Think “attrition.”  Think “enemy of my enemy is my friend”  so why not give Erdogan’s biggest bane…he’s obsessed with the Kurds…a nice boost?

This was another concept that was suggested that the Americans should have done to have the Kurds operate against ISIS incidentally.  The Kurds are not perfect but I’d rather deal with them any day of the week vs ISIS, wouldn’t you?

Russia has never gotten past the incidents with Erdogan in the last several months from the shot down airplane on through.  There is more than one way to skin a cat and we must never underestimate or forget that Putin is extremely shrewd and patient.  Erdogan’s recent actions including taking over the media have been autocrat and despot 101 and I’m hardly trying to cast the Kurds as white knight saints, either.  This is going to get ugly but ultimately I expect the loser to be Erdogan.   The day that Russian airliner went down was the end for him.

That Kurd weapon story happened in Iraq and I want to be very specific here since I’m making a leap and I admit it here. Since “Iraq” essentially doesn’t exist any more and unless I’m really nuts a Kurd is a Kurd…  is this really a reach to think that perhaps Russia has been or will also throw the Kurds giving Erdogan his headaches a bone, too?

http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/ISIS-Threat/Amid-Russias-withdrawal-ISIS-announces-the-killing-of-Russian-military-adviser-in-Syria-448314
Amid Russia’s withdrawal, ISIS announces the killing of Russian military adviser in Syria

I think we can expect Russia’s redeployment sooner rather than later.

 

HIGH STRANGENESS?:

Follow up.   Things are moving so fast.

I’m done with the Scalia subject.

My last word on that is this: If he had stayed alive and well for the next year or so I seriously doubt it would have made much of a difference just like it hasn’t made much of a difference for at least the last decade for starters. An 80-year-old man that many pounds overweight doesn’t need a CIA death ray gun from the 1970s to “take him out.”  Just sayin’.    With all due respect to the esteemed judge. 🙂

Moving on…

MIDDLE EAST:

http://www.wsj.com/articles/islamic-state-suspected-of-using-chemical-weapon-u-s-says-1439499549

ISIS suspected of using chemical weapons

It’s right out of Joel Rosenberg’s latest fiction series The Third Target followed the First Hostage.    I have no doubt about it myself.

Does this really surprise anyone? Unfortunately I suspect in the 5 years (?!)and 300,000+ death toll (?!)  in Syria alone chems have been used by both sides and it’s going to spread.

http://www.jpost.com/Jerusalem-Report/Russias-Syria-gambit-442256
Analysis: Moscow’s alliance with Iran and Hezbollah threatens strategic Israeli interests

No kidding?   Now where in the Bible does a familiar scenario that matches up with that show up? Oh yes! Ezekiel 38.

“The main beneficiary of the Russian intervention in Syria has been Iran. “

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/02/16/iran-s-defense-chief-meets-putin-to-discuss-controversial-sale-fighter-jets-tanks.html?intcmp=hpbt1

$$$

No question about it. At least for now Iran is the epic winner although there are some prophecies in the Bible coming on tap for them that make them the big losers like the end of Jeremiah 49 for the southern Elam territory and Ezekiel 38 to finish them off. Enjoy it while it lasts.

Frankly Iran has been a huge winner for months and with no small thanks to the USA helping them free up at least $1.7 billion if not more.   It’s going to be partially on our heads when…not if…when Iran decides to attack someone and that will most likely be Israel.

Short term winner: Iran.   Long term winner: God.   Hopefully sooner rather than later.

http://www.foxnews.com/world/2016/02/15/nuclear-arms-race-under-way-in-middle-east-israeli-official-warns.html?intcmp=hplnws

Nuclear Arms race underway in the Middle East like Israel has been warning about.

Israel has been warming people for years but no one cares.

This is with a large thanks to the United States caving in on that worthless deal with the Iranians. They are the bigger winners and so the rest of the Arab world knows they are going to have to “check and balance” things for themselves.  Awesome.

http://www.businessinsider.com/russia-has-just-deployed-its-most-advanced-spy-plane-to-syria-2016-2

Russia’s top tier spy plane is in the game in Syria.  

This convergence in Syria with these major powers is quite disconcerting and extremely fluid.

http://news.yahoo.com/turkish-artillery-returns-fire-kind-syria-military-sources-092943871.html

Turkey seeks allies’ support for ground operation as Syria war nears border

This means NATO and specifically the United States.

It ain’ worth it.  I hope cool heads and some brain power kick in here.  The Saudi involvement is what troubles me here since they basically own us although Obama has been tap dancing on both sides of this Sunni-Shi’ite thing since he came into power as recently demonstrated with this ghastly Iran deal.   How do you play both sides of that fence?

I have a hard time seeing the USA go boots on the ground to support this insanity but given everything else we’ve seen since 9-11 alone?  I can’t rule anything out any more.

If the Saudis snap their fingers and play hardball with the $$$ and the oil then anything goes.   What I have to wonder about this is: The Saudi kingdom is in a fragile spot themselves. Do they really have the strength and the angle to get involved in something like this? This may be their undoing right here to get into folly like this.

Apparently Turkey is under the delusion that NATO and allies like that will back them up if they go for a ground invasion in Syria. I hope and suspect they are wrong about that but with the Saudis involved and Saudi money basically holding the USA up? All bets are off.  I hope we don’t do it.

NATO needs to parts ways with Turkey. They are hypocrites and I suspect Russia is right about their ties with ISIS.

CLIMATE CHANGE DELUSION:

http://www.jpost.com/Breaking-News/US-will-sign-Paris-Agreement-climate-envoy-445087?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

US will sign Paris Agreement – climate envoy

Of course we will.  If it’s about self defeat and self sabotaging in a haze of delusion you can count on us to lead the pack.

The United States will sign the Paris Agreement on climate change this year regardless of the Supreme Court’s decision to put a chunk of President Barack Obama’s environmental action on hold, the US climate envoy said on Tuesday.

If Scalia were still alive this would still be true.  Ok, now that’s the last word. 🙂

The globalist agenda that’s been in play for decades is going to continue to move forward no matter what the window dressing  looks or sounds like.

“Todd Stern also said that Obama’s successor, even if it is a Republican, would be unlikely to scrap the Paris deal as to do so would have negative diplomatic implications.”

Precisely. Just like Obama Care,  the marriage issues, and everything else that’s happened.  We get whining and some theater and it keeps on moving in the same direction anyways.

Your vote counts.

Meanwhile China and India will continue to ignore this obvious pretext and self sabotaging delusion and make industrious money hand over fist.  You think they care about smog in the atmosphere?

Even Putin in Russia rightly called this out for the West’s New World Order pretext for takeover and redistribution of wealth that it is.  Keep in mind, of course, that Putin wants his own New World Order but I digress.

ECONOMIC INDICATORS:

http://www.reuters.com/article/us-oil-meeting-idUSKCN0VO2FJ

http://www.businessinsider.com/the-end-of-shale-oil-2016-2

Supply of oil is being cut back in a mutual agreement across oil providing countries.

I find this second article about US Shale Oil in decline to be a telling indicator as well.  I sympathize with attempting to stabilize oil pricing but I have a this sinking feeling that this will be another one of those ideas that sounds good on paper and then ends up having unintended consequences at minimum along with the insane concept of “negative interest rates.”

 

PET PEEVE:

This is particularly nauseating on social media outlets like Facebook:   Someone posts an image that says something like “Like, share, and say Amen! or else you’re a spawn of the devil and want to kill puppies, too!”  and so forth.

It’s galling when people try to drag God and the Bible into something like that.  In some cases it may be well intended but in poor taste but it does nothing but harm the cause for Jesus Christ and it’s the worst kind of low base manipulation at best.   It’s awful and it needs to stop.

Thus endeth today’s public service announcement. 🙂

PA: No more negotiations with Israel, ever
PA Foreign Minister rejects direct negotiations with Israel, suggests ISIS may soon take over Judea, Samaria.

I think he’s partially right. ISIS will try to take those areas over and they will fail.  That will either be part of a literal Psalm 83 scenario or dovetailed into something else.

Obviously the PA is done pretending…until next week?  Who knows? At least this is a refreshing lack of pretense here if nothing else.

Turkey and Saudis vs Iran, Russia and Syria.

It’s on the boards. We’re quickly heading into “we could wake up any morning and…” territory.  There are no good guys in this picture for me.

This cannot end well and I hope cooler heads prevail somehow.

This is happening at the same time indicators are that Russia will increase their activity and aggression: http://www.unz.com/tsaker/week-eighteen-of-the-russian-intervention-in-syria-a-dramatic-escalation-appears-imminent/

Russian airstrikes destroy Doctors Without Borders-backed hospital in Syria, activists say

The problem with anything like this is we’re going to get at least two sides of a story and we have no idea what’s actually true although the clamor is growing in favor of this particular narrative so far.

http://www.jpost.com/Breaking-News/France-says-attacks-on-hospitals-in-Syria-are-war-crimes-445017

France accuses Syria of war crimes for hospital attacks.

Notice how no one has the guts to point the finger at the Russians? Syria is partially responsible but not solely.

Arab states are seeking nuclear weapons to counter Iran.  

Israel and others have been warning about this for a long time and now here we are.  This is another point of no return.  This is the worst kind of arms race that could be imagined.

Syria’s Assad says cease-fire doesn’t mean parties ‘stop using weapons’

This “cease-fire” isn’t going to be worth much if this bit of sophistry is anything to go by.  Like we didn’t already know that anyways.

DEATH OF SC JUDGE SCALIA (TIN FOIL HAT):

Most importantly here: Thoughts and prayers to all friends and loved ones of a judge that many of us held in high esteem.

Let’s get down to the apparently growing buzz surrounding the circumstances of his death and I want to be as respectful and careful with this as I can:

http://www.conservativeoutfitters.com/blogs/news/87933633-poll-do-you-suspect-foul-play-in-the-death-of-justice-scalia

Drudge ran this last night so it’s definitely out in the mainstream this question of natural causes or foul play.   I’ll let the poll numbers speak for themselves in addition to any time you spend out on social media or the blogosphere.    The “foul play” narrative is alive and well and in some surprising corners.   I know this story has changed several times since the news broke. That doesn’t help things, either.

My own view: 

At face value:

I can’t call an 80-year-old passing away an “untimely death.”   This was a good Italian boy who knew about good eating and good living and with all due respect and affection… it showed. 🙂

The problem:

It’s sketchy and suspect more than it needs to be largely because of this pillow over the face/head and the seeming rush to bury/embalm the body and not to do an autopsy.    I can’t get around these two items at all and I’m clearly not in a small minority on that.

People that normally don’t go “conspiracy” are noticing this as well.

More conspiracy fodder that again I even see Drudge floating around: http://www.conservativeoutfitters.com/blogs/news/88052289-the-cias-secret-heart-attack-gun

Make of that what you will.  The CIA secret heart attack gun. LOL 🙂

I think if Scalia had been 50 instead of 80 I could throw down on this “foul play” narrative with a lot more force and no hesitation at all. I don’t feel like I can quite do that yet although I admit the breeze is having me tilt in that direction or at least considering it.

 

Here is some more to consider:
http://www.allenbwest.com/2016/02/breaking-judge-reveals-scalias-cause-of-death-says-this-about-foul-play/

^^ A fairly definitive “not foul play” statement.  This is probably good enough for a lot of people.

http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2016/02/we_must_have_an_immediate_scalia_autopsy.html

^^ I think this is very “fair and balanced”… pardon the cliche… and even keeled. Yes,  an autopsy would be good.

There will be back and forth on this for a while I suspect.

My friends at Skywatch TV wrote this on their Facebook page:

 

Forensics on this should be relatively straightforward. If the Justice died because the pillow was held over his face, then saliva, petechiae, and even fibers will tell the tale. It’s a shame that he had to leave us so soon. If someone did hasten his end, then let’s pray justice is served–and ultimately, as Christians, we know that all things done in secret will be brought to light.

Exactly right.  See that bolded item? I pray that and everything that goes with it happens VERY soon on all levels.

We are practically at a point of unhinged lunacy because a growing number of the populace does not trust the government for a wide variety of reasons. Too bad it took all of this to get there.

This is partly why we see a circus sideshow presidential election and none of the candidates can be called leaders or statesman/woman with a straight face.

Who won that GOP “debate” the other night incidentally? The Democrats.

How do the Democrats look? Terrible. Not a pretty choice, is it?

The whole thing is so lackluster it feels like a throw away and an afterthought. Maybe it is.  Hmmmm….

 

All of these sort of things are all symptoms.

The root cause continues to be Romans 1, 2 Timothy 4, and all that goes with it.

Cui Buono (Who Benefits?) in regards to Scalia’s death?

This isn’t rocket science.

The best answers I’ve seen in regards to “Why Scalia might have gotten knocked off” go like this:

“The landmark rulings are this year which will basically give Obama amnesty and something with gun control (can’t remember details). It has to do with constitutionally of executive action. Huge SC cases this year. That is why having the biggest dissenter removed would be advantageous to Obama.”

and

“Obama has not gotten gun control or open borders.”

and

“Done to send a message out” which is classic Cloak and Dagger 101.

Could be all true. These are good answers. 🙂

There is no question these items all become even easier now although I really don’t think it makes as much of a difference as some other people might. I think it’s full steam ahead on those one way or the other.

All of those items have been well underway for decades as is.  It’s been the frog in the slowly warming to boiling pot situation on those issues and so much more.

Look at the track record of success Obama has enjoyed since coming in office. He’s gotten everything he wanted and the heavy lifting is finished with the health care and marriage rulings.  It makes little difference what the makeup of the SCOTUS or Congress is.  Scalia was alive and well for all of that.  He could only do so much.

I will not be surprised if Obama gets more than one shot at SCOTUS before the year is out because of the elderly make up of several of the judges and not the least of which is Justice Ginsburg who is even less than a youngster than Scalia was and has already had a major health scare in her recent past.  What if she decides to retire soon to give Obama another slot? “Take a dive for the cause” as it were since she is as liberal as it gets?

How’s that for a conspiracy theory?  It’s a young year.

http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/scotus-analyst-tom-goldstein-loretta-lynch-most-likely-candidate-replace-n518916?cid=sm_fb

AG Loretta Lynch the most likely Obama appointee to succeed Scalia.

I figured it would be her or Holder for reasons including some of which get mentioned in that piece.  Eventually we may be stuck with both.  Depending on who the next POTUS is, assuming that happens, some scenarios even have Obama being appointed into the SCOTUS himself assuming he doesn’t go to the UN.  None of it would surprise me.

He’s not going away.

 

My takeaway from all of this craziness:

I can’t rule anything out because I know this game is really about Ephesians 6:12 and what’s really in charge of this planet right now… but honestly? No one needed to be knocked off to continue this agenda and I very seriously doubt Scalia was going to be able to stop it had he stayed alive and well this next year.

Christians we absolutely need to be making sure we keep the Armor of God each and every day.  Ephesians 6:10-20.

If you aren’t a Christian….  honestly,  the only way this mess is going to get fixed is when the King of Kings Jesus Christ comes back and sets this all straight and I’ve pounded that drum recently in this blog plenty about how we are definitely in the season leading up to that and the slew of symptoms that go with it.

Please… look into these things because there may not be a lot of time left to make that decision. Make sure you are on the right side. 🙂

1-11-16 Carpathia Rising?

That deliberately sensationalistic title is a tongue in cheek…mostly…reference for the following story.  I couldn’t resist. 🙂

http://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Politics-And-Diplomacy/Report-Netanyahu-to-lead-effort-in-thwarting-Obama-bid-for-UN-chief-440873#article=6017OUQ0OUM3QzdFNEU1QkFFQjI1MkZERjg1NTQ5NDE2NUU

Obama considering run to be the next leader of the UN.

Sure.  Why not?  He’s that arrogant and delusional despite his wretched track record.

Y’all didn’t really think he was going away did you?

For the record I wholeheartedly endorse any and all efforts and opposition against this ghastly and absurd concept although honestly? He’s a perfect fit for that worthless institution and vice versa. He’s finished this country off so why not? (A process that started long before he showed up to be fair. )

He came out of nowhere as a junior senator without a thing to his name and a joke of a resume with a very murky background to say the least.  Despite that, he was handed a Nobel Prize for doing nothing except showing up, became POTUS and got re-elected to boot… all points that can’t be overstated… all that’s going to just suddenly fade off into the sunset in a year or so?  It’s hard to see it.

They have invested too much into him.  A cryptic statement that I leave for you all to ponder and research on your own.  Don’t underestimate him or what’s behind him.

http://thehill.com/policy/national-security/264542-liberal-billionaire-soros-regrets-backing-obama

I will say that this Soros disclosure in regards to regretting supporting Obama is potentially revealing if it isn’t a misdirection.  It sends me a cold water signal that Obama’s arrogance and delusions of grandeur may be hitting a brick wall. Soros had a huge hand in creating the product known as Obama.

Hype and theories notwithstanding, Obama has been major change agent and major ground softener at minimum.  So is the current Pope.

In the case of Obama, no one can deny the huge impact he’s had and the trail of destruction, chaos, and sheer stupidity left in his wake.  Incompetence is not a sufficient answer to account for all of it. The Pope is making his waves but I don’t think we have seen him “peak” yet like we likely have Obama barring something insane of course.

It’s amazing how similar these two sound to each other in a lot of ways and especially on obvious globalist canards like climate change, universalist religion concepts, and redistribution of wealth.

These two are the latest in a line of nice looking prototypes in a number of ways for antichrist and false prophet roles and they merit heavy scrutiny and running anything they say and do against a Bible, 1 John 4 style.
RFID…marching towards the eventual  Mark of the Beast:

Biostamps.  Bio this…bio that…  safe and convenient right?

Closer and closer we inch in the declassified mainstream towards these RFID tags on everyone for just about everything. After this comes the chips. Where else can they go with this?

What’s still classified? 10-40 years ahead of the streets by the most conservative estimates? What do you think?

 

http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/14545/Pakistan-threatens-to-wipe-Iran-off-the-map-if-Saudi-harmed

Pakistan’s contribution to world peace was issued yesterday in which they offered to wipe Iran off the map if Iran did anything towards Saudi Arabia. Pakistan has nukes.  Thanks, guys. Very helpful.   Sunni vs Shiite is how you draw the lines on this.

Listen to Derek Gilbert, my favorite newscaster, break it down for you far better than I can.

 

 

http://www.debka.com/newsupdate/14557/Iran-in-first-move-to-de-escalate-row-with-Saudi-Arabia

I have no idea if this means anything but Iran appears to be attempting to throw some kind of cold water on this mess. Given the previous story about Pakistan I couldn’t help but chuckle at this: “This was Tehran’s first response to Pakistan’s effort to mediate the crisis with Riyadh. But tensions remain high.”

 

http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Hezbollah-commanders-say-Russia-directly-arming-them-with-long-range-missiles-441124

Russia arming Hezbollah with long range missiles.

If the Psalm 83 as a war scenario comes to pass, this is another step in that direction.  The idea being that the inner ring of countries surrounding Israel including all the proxies, the middle men… groups like Hezbollah, the PLO, the Palestinians. etc…..they take their shots at Israel first and they lose setting up the eventual “I guess we’ll have to take care of this ourselves” from the big boys.

The end result, among other things, is that Israel becomes the “land of unwalled villages” in Ezekiel 38 which she most certainly is not right now.

With all due respect to some others out there… I have no idea in the world how anyone gets a context of a different subject or nation than Israel in Ezekiel 38 when it’s clear the focus of the narrative never changes for several chapters but I digress…

Whose proxies are Hamas, Hezbollah, PLO, etc.? Iran and Syria. They always have been. Who’s their new big buddy that’s large, in charge, and not going away? Russia.  Who is in Ezekiel 38? All of them for starters.

Where is Turkey?  My bet is parting ways with NATO soon and possibly being booted out.

Ezekiel 38 is when the middle men and the proxies are gone and the mainstays finally decide to go for it themselves and they lose thanks to direct intervention by God.   A Psalm 83 war scenario prior to this makes a lot of sense to me and if it’s correct then it wouldn’t take much to set it off.  I

Can I be dogmatic about it or any of the rest of this? No, but I think there are some pretty solid and compelling arguments for them that others have done far better than I ever could on it.

It sure seems like a ton of stage setting and window dressing for those events is staring us in the face right now.

Interesting times? Business as usual?    It’s something new every day.

Have a nice day?  🙂

Just keep to the Lord who is sitting on the thrown, Psalm 2 style, firmly in control and never surprised.

1-4-16: The New Year Overload Edition

MIDDLE EAST:

RUSSIA:

http://www.businessinsider.com/russia-syria-alawistan-assadland-2016-1

Every plan Russia has involving Syria in the Middle East has one guaranteed common denominator that you can take all the way to the bank: Them.  As in: Them being large and in charge and not going away.

http://security-intelligence.org/2016/01/4233/

A typical day in Russia in any time period. Government and military leaders die “without explanation” all the time, right?  What did he know?

 

IRAN VS SAUDI ARABIA

It’s all over the news in between Bill Cosby, Jenner, Khardashian,  and wall to wall bread- and- circuses. Even the MSM is getting to a point where they can’t ignore this any longer.

The Sunni-Shiite conflict boils down to these two lead proponents. Everything else has been proxy between them in other ME countries.  This is getting very frigid and hostile very quickly and world markets are understandably reacting to it.

It’s amazing to see even China have a 7 percent drop in their markets, be forced to hit the emergency freeze button trading…something we all are unfortunately familiar with… and all because of “weak manufactering data and rising Middle East tensions.”

I’m betting it’s more the latter than the former’s fault.
http://www.cnbc.com/2016/01/04/us-markets.html

Ugly day on the markets with the USA having the worst stock market opening in 80+ years.  That’s a great way to start off the New Year, isn’t it?

Global economic indicators also give away that this Iran-Saudi issue is a big deal and everyone knows it.

You better believe it.     The last thing I think anyone wants to see is an “Arab Spring” like phenomenon take place here with these big players. All bets are off it that happens.  I am praying this does not happen.

It won’t take much for this to get to a place where we all start feeling it whether we have a clue in the world of what’s going on or not.  See that $2 or less a gallon gas? Hold on to that memory if this continues to escalate.

Khameni’s incendiary and apocalyptic rhetoric against the Saudis is that but it still can’t be ignored because of the strong religious overtones coming from both sides of this.  This isn’t just about economics and politics and too many in the West will never get that.

From my armchair I have to wonder just how it is this Sunni vs Shiite conflict either gets resolved or at least settled out.  Or does it even have to?

I’m still not convinced that it has to be finished when I see stories like these:

http://www.debka.com/article/25132/Iran-Saudi-crisis-spurs-Hizballah-strike-on-Israel

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4748430,00.html

It’s funny how this works isn’t it? Iran and the Saudis have issues and somehow it’s an excuse to attack Israel who has nothing to do with any of this.  You figure it out.

They see an opportunity and they take it. The Sunni vs Shiites differences can disappear in a flash if there is some reasons the Jews ping loud on their radar. That’s always been the case.

ISRAEL: Prophecy before our eyes?

What I’m about to show you? I think so, yes.

More lost Jews coming out of the woodwork from places some of us  have never heard of, coming back to Israel:

http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Fundamentally-Freund-Bring-back-the-lost-Jews-438770

This is happening and it’s been happening. This is just the latest in a seemingly endless series of examples.

““And this exiled host of the children of Israel who are (with) the Canaanites as far as Zarepath and the exile of Jerusalem which is in Sepharad shall inherit the cities of the south. And saviors shall ascend Mt Zion to judge the mountain of Esau, and the Lord shall have the kingdom.”(Obadiah 1:20-21)

I would submit to you this is in process of being fulfilled right before our eyes. Apparently Zarepath and Sephard and Negev are supposed to refer to the areas these particular Jews are coming from. Worth noting and researching further.

USA:

Obama and gun control.

All over the news. Never let a crisis go to waste…real or manufactured doesn’t matter…and Pharoah is going to do whatever he wants as usual and we’ll get some bellyaching rhetoric from the manufactured fake opposition and that’s it.   The agenda moves forward and that’s that.  Look at voting records and get past speeches and rhetoric.

http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Iran/After-cutting-Iran-ties-Saudis-dont-care-if-they-anger-White-House-439316

Pharoah is losing his luster.  The Saudis are angry enough they don’t care if they offend the White House. Considering Obama has practically been a plant for them depending on whose theories you believe… I find this remarkable.

Over the weekend there were stories going around where George Soros of all people publically expresed regret for supporting Obama. Considering Obama is practically a product he helped create in the first place I just have to wonder what this all means.

See it for yourself: http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2016/01/george-soros-regrets-backing-obama.php

My own guess: Assuming it’s even legit, it means the experiment is finished with mixed results with most goals accomplished and the next time we see this sort of thing where you get a guy that comes up out nowhere and becomes a rock star for nothing it’s going to be the real thing. This was the dry run.

Astute commentary I saw on Facebook:

Caroline Glick
1-4-16

Now Bahrain has joined Saudi Arabia in cutting off diplomatic relations with Iran. Jordan is probably next.
It only took Obama’s deal with the mullahs six months to push the Islamic world to the brink of war and threaten the survival of the Saudi regime – the US’s strongest ally in the Persian Gulf.
Quite an accomplishment. Good thing Ben Rhodes said that implementing the nuclear deal with Iran is one of the key goals of Obama’s last year in office. We have so much more to look forward to in the coming year…

 

It’s a disaster and it makes me believe the stories about an increasing number of elites having buyer’s remorse way too late and after the fact in regards to Obama are legitimate.

As I write this it’s like dominoes falling as Saudi friendly countries are shutting down relations with Iran and I won’t even try to keep up with it all here for today. Watch closely on a VERY fluid story.

Civil Unrest.   

Sincerely praying cooler heads prevail and this ends peaceably and well for all concerned. No other alternatives go well or end well.

EXPOSING EVIL:

This documentary needs to see the light of day. Please pray for this project and prayerfully consider supporting it as the Lord leads.

Parting thoughts:  The world and various developments clearly didn’t get the memo about taking time off for the holidays. If anything it was the exact opposite.  In the time it’s been since I last posted here we have already seen more fluidity and things move forward even during a time period where people’s guards usually go down and things get a little more relaxed traditionally.

I continue to pray for all the people who were affected by ghastly weather across the USA starting on Christmas of all days and that led to nearly 50 people dead as a result.  Other parts of the world have also seen weather that everyone has used words like “unprecedented” “freakish” and other language like that.

There are a number of things that could go to all of this but overall if I look at this big picture and I don’t see “strange weather patterns” and see a birth pangs like pattern of increasing speed and frequency on ALL of the above and then some then  I don’t know what to tell you because this isn’t business as usual.   I don’t see how it can be.  Not all of these things at once.  That’s the key.

I may as well post this now and give up because things keep happening every time I turn around it seems.  That, too, says a lot.  Watching and praying…

Mark 13, Matthew 24, Luke 21 and a culture and society of Romans 1 and 2 Timothy 3.  If we aren’t right there or on the edge of all of that then it beats me.

Daily Round-Up 12-7-15

MIDDLE EAST:

http://www.debka.com/article/25067/Under-secret-Moscow-Cairo-deal-first-Egyptair-passenger-flights-to-Damascus-Aleppo

Things are getting friendlier between Egypt and Russia. Egypt is another Ezekiel 38 player.

 

 

http://www.valuewalk.com/2015/12/will-nato-expel-turkey-over-recent-aggressiveness/

Will NATO expel Turkey over recent aggressiveness?

To my knowledge this is the first time in the media that this concept of Turkey and NATO going their separate ways has been floated.   For me this is inevitable because somehow we have to get Turkey in the Ezekiel 38 coalition.  How do we get from point A to point B?  From NATO’s standpoint: They aren’t worth it and especially now. I can’t imagine NATO gunning up for Turkey.

They have always been an odd fit at best and the moves Erdogan has made makes it even that much more so.

I see this separation happening in the near future and then it won’t take much after that for the sequence to be complete.

ISIS:

The POTUS speech was a wallpaper non-event that has no credibility behind it whatsoever. Words say one thing and actions continue to say something else entirely.   The only person that I believe when they say they are going to destroy ISIS is Putin.

I have to give Trump credit when his response to this speech last night was:  “Is that all there is? We need a new President – FAST!”       

That would be a nice start and I agree but it wouldn’t solve the spiritual decay in the land of which poor leadership is just one of numerous Romans 1 fallout symptoms.

ISRAEL/TEMPLE MOUNT:

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/204518#.VmWnWb-KK8B
Two Jews arrested on Temple Mount for Hanukkah prayer

Unbelievable. On Hanukkah no less. How much longer is this ever deteriorating status quo really going to be tolerated?   Here’s a hint: It won’t be many years or decades.

DEVIANT SOCIETY:

http://www.conservativeoutfitters.com/blogs/news/79125377-chicago-police-search-for-parent-of-toddler-smoking-weed-in-this-video

That is a partisan website but the video is legit. Even if it’s a “joke”… who has a baby smoke pot?   I hope they find these people and round them up.

Conspiracy theorists threaten family of Sandy Hook shooting victim Vicki Soto

Let’s say for the sake of the argument this lady is a crisis actor. (I don’t believe it. Sue me.) Is this how to handle it?  Really?

I have my tin foil nearby when I need it and sometimes going down a rabbit trail can be fun. 🙂

This is an example of where the slippery slope can take us and I think this is beyond the pale. It’s outrageous and some people really need to please loosen the tin foil hat a notch and allow more blood flow to their brains.

 

HIGH STRANGENESS:

http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2015/dec/07/stonehenge-first-erected-in-wales-secondhand-monument?CMP=fb_gu

Stonehenge. The mystery that keeps on giving.   This is an interesting concept.

If it was a second-hand monument how did they transport it and how did they line it up perfectly with the stars in a certain incredibly accurate way that we still can’t fully replicate now to the best of my knowledge?

OCCULT EXPOSURE:

TW!    Some of you know what that means and it definitely go for this video. Trigger Warning all the way!

This is an incredibly disturbing video and don’t feel bad if you can’t watch the whole thing. What you are going to see and hear in this video are two children that were rescued out of a Satanic occult abuse situation.  This video has been vetted many times over and passed muster.    I honestly wish it weren’t true.

A lot of things stand out to me in this video including the notably “Aryan” features of the kids which is no accident.   We learned this a little bit the hard way this past year that likes of this is a lot closer to home than a lot of us would like to think about and the key word for today is “infiltration.”    It’s closer than you think. I have seen it with my own eyes.

Ezekiel 8. God sees all.  Just pray for the likes of this out there and by that I mean: It could be on the next street over from where you live. Seriously.

http://www.detestablefilm.com/

Several people who are involved in the very challenging ministry in these areas are trying to make a documentary about all of these things.  Please pray for this project and if please prayerfully consider support.  Thanks.

People actually believe the likes of this but anything to not believe in God.   Amazing.
