Israeli Defense Minister Snubbed by Top US Officials

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

The first  three links [1, 2, 3] detail the fact that the Israeli Defense Minister was snubbed by many high-ranking Obama administration officials when he was in the USA  recently. This is quite extraordinary, given the longstanding alliance between the USA and the Israelis and the common interests of the two nations. This snubbing of the Israeli Defense Minister adds to the belief that the Obama administration is the most anti-Israeli administration ever to exist in the USA.

Don’t expect this event to be reported widely in the American media, but it has been noticed all over the world, no doubt, by all leading nations. I suspect that, given the many foreign policy failures of the Obama administration, President Obama may be peeved that the Israelis will not cater to Obama’s desire to reach some kind of a Palestinian-Israeli peace deal which shortchanges Israeli security concerns. This kind of action by the Obama administration could have some far-reaching effects.

I think one of the primary effects it will have is that the Israelis, given good reason to be unsure about American support in any future security crisis, will boost their own conventional and nuclear weaponry as well as broadening the Israeli defense industry base so it can make more military hardware domestically without relying on US suppliers. If this happens, the US defense industry will have fewer orders for their products from Israel, and the Obama administration will be to blame for this development. American jobs could be lost due to the Obama administration’s snubbing of the Israelis. Also, this will benefit European and other international arms suppliers as the Israelis will likely turn to alternate suppliers for some military hardware and gear.

Another effect is that the Israelis have to be alarmed about having an anti-Israeli Obama in the White House until January 2017. Much can happen between now and that date. The snubbing of the Israeli Defense Minister by the Obama administration will intensify Israeli efforts to locate new allies in the region. The fourth link and fifth link detail the ever-warming relations between the Israelis and Egyptians. They are united in their opposition to Hamas and the Jihadis who are waging a terrorist war against Egyptian security personnel in the Sinai Peninsula and against targets in Egypt’s mainland region. They are also united in their dim view of the Obama administration. Egypt sees the Obama administration as having favored the Islamic Brotherhood which was led by Muhammad Morsi and which led Egypt to the point of internal disintegration or civil war before the Egyptian military led by General al-Sisi took power and saved Egypt from the fates suffered by Iraq, Yemen and Libya. These links report that Israel and Egypt left the Obama administration out of the peace negotiations to stop the Israeli-Hamas war and that Egyptian-Israeli security cooperation is now at its  “zenith.” An Egyptian-Israeli alliance would be a very strong “tag team” in the Mideast. It would unite two very strong regional conventional armies which would be protected by an Israeli nuclear umbrella. If Egypt and Israel openly form an alliance, it is very possible that Saudi Arabia, Jordan and a soon-to-be-independent Kurdistan might also join that same alliance. If such an alliance forms, the USA will be the big loser as it will lose much clout and influence in the Mideast and Turkey and Iran would also be losers in such an arrangement. Turkey has turned very anti-Israeli and it also offended the Egyptian government recently (as I noted in a previous post) so Turkey could end up inadvertently helping to midwife an Israeli-Egyptian alliance. When/if Kurdistan becomes fully independent, it will need allies and its pro-western, Sunni Moslem nature makes it a logical choice to join such an alliance. I won’t specifically predict the above developments, but they are becoming more likely as the Obama administration fumbles its foreign policy initiatives overseas. It should also be note that Greece and the Greek-ruled section of Cyprus are strongly pro-Israeli so they would also be favorable to an Israeli-Egyptian alliance.

Biblically, Zephaniah 2:1-10 prophesied that Judah (the Jews) would have an independent nation in the old Promised Land just before “the day of the Lord’s anger” (another prophetic terminology for the latter days) occurred, and this prophecy was specifically fulfilled in 1948 (please see my article, Are We Living in the Biblical Latter Days?, to see an in-depth examination of biblical prophecies being fulfilled in recent decades that confirm we are living in the biblical “latter day” period of time). Zechariah 12:1-6 prophesy that God will remain a protector to the Jewish nation in the Mideast even if all other nations oppose it. Notice that this prophecy does not actually predict the Israelis will be without allies, but reassures them God will remain their ally even if all other nations forsook it.

Currently, it is the Obama administration which is gradually forsaking its alliance with the Israelis, freeing the Israelis to make independent alliances with other nations.

Are You Ready for the Coming “Drone Wars?”

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Yes. We are heading into a time when we will literally have “drone wars.” Some will be military applications where the drones of one nation fight the drones of another nation. Some wars will be the drones of the security and police agencies of national governments fighting the drones of the drug cartels and terrorists. I suspect there will be many legal/courtroom drone wars as well. As the use of drones expands, there is a dearth of legislation and case law applicable to their safe and legal use. This post is to offer some of my thoughts on the subject.

Daniel 12:4 prophesies, “knowledge will be increased” at the time of the end (of this age), and the Hebrew word translated “increased” means an exponential increase. It is the same Hebrew word translated how the waters of Noah’s Flood “increased” on the earth in Genesis 7:17–obviously an exponential increase. A few decades ago, I think none of us would have had an inkling as to how far technology would advance. Technological leaps can can be a good thing or a bad thing.

The first link details some of the dangers of the expanded use of drones by private parties. It cites how drones with cameras could be a “peeping tom’s” tool for looking into females’ windows without subjects knowing they are being watched. Can you imagine what the paparazzi would do with spy drones getting pictures of celebrities at their parties, vacation beaches, on their yachts, in their bedroom windows, etc.? That link describes a case where a person operated a private camera drone to peer into the third-floor window of another person’s house. Was that person a peeping tom, a burglar “casing the joint” for objects to steal or what? This could be a common occurrence in the future if private parties can purchase drones without any legitimate need to own one. The case in point happened in liberal, politically correct Seattle. I can think of large swaths of the USA in the South, Appalachia, the prairie states, the Rocky Mountain states, Alaska, etc. where the outcome would have been much different. If someone had seen an unauthorized drone spying on their home as it peered through a third-story window, I think that drone would have quickly disappeared when it was hit by the blast of 12-gauge shotgun. After all, the drone is not a living thing so it has no personal rights. If it is trespassing, why couldn’t any homeowner legally shoot an unauthorized drone down?

The second link reports that film-making drones will soon be used by the movie-making industry. Think what those kinds of high-tech video drones could do in the hands of people or nations eager to spy on others. Of course, drones could have many useful applications. One would be to use them in urban warfare like what is now being fought in Kobani, the Kurdish city on the Turkish border being attacked by ISIL forces. If US Special Forces inserted clandestinely into the city used small video drones, they could locate ISIL troops and armored vehicles and call down air strikes with great precision. I can’t help but wonder if this isn’t already being done. In some future wars, I can foresee that small attack drones will sneak soundlessly upon enemy sentries and kill them with a bullet or explosive device. Defensive drones could also be hovering over sentries to defend them from the attacks of offensive drones. The use of drones could easily shut down the US-Mexican border to stop all illegal immigration quickly if only the US government wanted to enforce immigration laws. Spying applications for drones are almost limitless. This could also include corporate spying efforts. Think of how shoplifting could be ended by the use of drones. Department stores could deploy small, camera-equipped drones to monitor all shopping aisles within their stores to locate and apprehend any shoplifter caught trying to steal merchandise.

Indeed, where will drones be allowed and where will they be forbidden? The third link opens some interesting possibilities. The US National Park Service has banned drones from its supervised properties. The link notes this could place 84 million acres of US land off-limits to drones. My question: if one government agency can ban the use of drones in its jurisdiction, why can’t all other government agencies do the same? Indeed, why can’t private property owners ban drones from their airspace as well? If a federal government agency can ban the use of drones on its lands, surely state and local governments can ban their use as well. The 10th Amendment of the US Constitution reserves to the states all rights not specifically given to the federal government in the Constitution. Unless drones are being used in interstate commerce, it would seem each state would have the right to draft its own set of laws for drone usage and drone ownership. No doubt, different legislatures and city councils will take different views on drone ownership and usage. Legal battles will surely ensure. Since drones could be easily used for criminal purposes such as window-peeking, corporate spying, stalking, kidnapping efforts, burglary efforts, murders, spying on mates in divorce proceedings, etc., it is possible some jurisdictions will ban private ownership of drones unless a legitimate use can be demonstrated by a potential buyer (The US Second Amendment to the Constitution guarantees gun ownership rights, but there is no drone-ownership right in the US Constitution).

The final link offers a humorous insight into the drone usage issue even as it makes a serious point. For ease of viewing, I included the cartoon re: drone use which i saw in a newspaper.

Revelation 13:16-18 prophesies the final “beast” system of global government on the earth will not only monitor but control financial transactions. If the beast system will have a “control freak” approach to financial transactions, it stands to reason they will want the same kind of control over all kinds of human activities. All kinds of specialized drones will be able to provide that capability. Civil rights advocates need to start drafting legislation and ordinances already to control the use of drones to limit them to legitimate usages only. Personally, I think that because it would be so easy to misuse a drone for criminal purposes, all citizens wanting to buy drones should have to be licensed to buy them and undergo criminal background checks as well. Governments should be limited by legislation and laws to control how public authorities use them as well to stop abuses via drone usage.

Welcome to the Brave New World that is gradually being imposed on the planet.

USA Saving Old Nukes to Defend Vs. Asteroids

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

The first link reports that the American government has decided not to destroy old nuclear warheads that were scheduled for deactivation. Instead, the link reports, the US government is saving them in the event that they are needed for “planetary defense against earthbound asteroids” that could threaten the earth and all that dwell on it. The link does not specifically state how many American nuclear warheads have been tasked to this mission.

In spite of the closing line in the first link (a clever reference to a movie made years ago about the earth almost being destroyed by an asteroid approaching earth), this is a serious subject as it is now widely-accepted that the dinosaur world that was annihilated by the impact of the space object that impacted in the Chixelub crater near/on the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico. The second link adds information about the search by NASA for Near Earth Objects (NEOs) that could pose a danger to our planet.

The first link assures us that there is nothing to worry about…”at least for the next hundred years or so.” And yet, the US government is now worried enough to dedicate old nuclear warheads to take out incoming space objects that are on an impact trajectory with our planet. Hmm. Could they know something they aren’t telling us yet about what they have found “out there” that is headed in our direction? I merely pose the question.

The Bible indicates they may have reason to worry. Revelation 8:8-11 prophesy that in the latter days just prior to the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, a heavenly object described as a “great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea,” killing 1/3rd of all oceanic life and sinking 1/3rd of all ships. The Apostle John was given a prophetic vision of events in the latter days in the book of Revelation, and he had to describe what he saw with limited, low-tech ancient vocabulary words.  An approaching space object would, indeed, look just like a burning fiery mountain hurtling toward earth as it caught fire from the intense heat of traveling at a high velocity into the earth’s atmosphere. Verses 10-11 may describe a second event or an aftermath of the first impact. If this is truly a literal prophesied event instead of merely being metaphorical language for something else, the prophecy indicates the space object will hit in the ocean somewhere. Since most of the earth is ocean, the odds are in favor of such an impact. Can you imagine the tidal waves that would destroy global coastal regions if this becomes a literal event?

For new visitors to this blog who are unfamiliar with biblical arguments about a “latter day” period of time at the prophesied end of our age, please read my article, Are We living in the Biblical Latter Days? This article will give you a broad-based view of several prophesied mega-trends and specific geopolitical events which were prophesied to occur in the “latter days.” The biblical prophesies identifying the latter days have come true. Mankind ignores these fulfilled biblical prophecies to its own peril. These fulfilled biblical prophecies prove: (A) the existence of a very-real Creator God and (B) that the Bible is His Word and His Warning to mankind. Even the Bible prophesies most people will ignore these warnings…to their mortal danger.

My thanks to a friend for tipping me off to the first link.

The FBI: Help Us Identify This English-Speaking Jihadi Terrorist

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

This post is being sent to the readership of this blog as a public service to offer some assistance to the US FBI. The FBI is seeking any information it can glean from public input to help it identify an Islamic ISIL terrorist who is seen on camera orchestrating a massacre of Syrian army prisoners. The terrorist’s head is largely covered-up, but his voice is clearly speaking English in what appears to be his language of origin. Please watch the videos below and, if you can provide the FBI with any possible tip regarding who this likely American Jihadi is, please call the FBI tip-line with that information. Even a small piece of information may be crucial to helping the FBI identify this person and, hopefully, also take down any domestic Jihadi network that he may be representing.

A cable-news segment I watched earlier today featured an expert who added that the Islamic Jihadi speaker sounds like he is speaking North American English and he may have a Midwestern accent. During any given month, there are people visiting my website from 120-130 nations so I’m posting these links (below) in the chance that someone may be able to provide some assistance to the FBI. It may be that you know about a person with Islamic radical views who has disappeared from your region lately or you may know a person whose Facebook page may contain radical-Islamic rants which sounds like the speaker in the video. One former FBI official speaking on a cable-TV network also added that since ISIL is very sophisticated in electronic media propaganda, the person on the execution video may not be the actual speaker on the audio portion. So there may be two people to apprehend or identify. The person on-camera is one person, but the actual speaker doing the audio rant may be another person doing a “voice-over.” Since one report indicates the ISIL speaker has a Midwestern accent, a likely location for this terrorist’s origin is the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area as a number of Islamic radicals from there have migrated to the horn of Africa to fight for Al Shabab, another radical Islamic Jihadi group (fourth link). The final link reports a surprising number of Minnesotans from its Islamic community have emigrated to Syria to fight in the ranks of radical Islamic groups there [such as ISIL]. I’m sure the FBI is already pursuing this possibility of a Minnesotan connection. If you area reader from the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, please listen especially closely to the speaker on this terrorist video to see if you have any possible leads to give to the FBI.

The need to identify and apprehend Islamic Jihadis in America (or from America) is growing. The third link cites one US Congressman as saying his sources indicate that at least ten ISIL/ISIS terrorists have crossed the porous and unsecured US border with Mexico to enter the USA. Obviously, they are most likely entering to commit mass terrorist attacks at some point in the future vs. American citizens. If they do, the blood of any Americans killed or wounded in such attacks will be on Obama’s hands and on Congress’ hands as they have collectively refused to implement adequate border security measures.

Graphene–the New “Wonder” Substance [Practical and Prophetic Implications]

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

The first link offers amazing information about a new material called graphene, which won a Nobel prize for its inventors. The first link gives an overview of graphene’s amazing properties and the second link and third link offer more details about this amazing “wonder” substance about which the public knows very little, I believe.

Graphene is “stronger than diamonds” as well as a “better conductor than copper.” It is “97% transparent” and is very elastic. It is made from carbon/graphite and can be made to have applications, apparently, even when it is in a layer just one atom thick. It even has medical qualities and, according to the first link, can be injected into the human body to perform specific missions. It is truly remarkable. It may also make electric cars far more efficient and practical than they now are. Graphene has almost unlimited possible applications at the nano-technology level. In these links, you can read about some of the practical applications that graphene can have in the commercial world, once it can be manufactured in large quantities with a high degree of quality control.

After reviewing these links, I can suggest a few other applications for graphene not mentioned there. Consider possible military applications. Given that graphene is incredibly strong and light, it could be used to add an extra layer of great strength to tanks, warships, warplanes, body armor, satellites, etc. A layer of super, lightweight graphene stitched into a soldier’s uniform may give that soldier a bulletproof, flexible uniform and helmet. The fact that graphene can make plastic cellophane conduct electricity has implications for possible terrorist threats. What could graphene do in the hands of terrorists with plastic explosives that could make plastics conduct electricity while attached to a timing device or a remote, cell-phone detonator? This material has to be kept out of terrorists’ hands.

Prophetically, I see one obvious possibility for graphene fulfilling a biblical prophecy. Many Christians (including me) have speculated about what Revelation 16:17’s “mark of the beast” might be. Graphene nano-particles injectable into human bodies make graphene an obvious candidate for implementing the mark of the beast. The first link notes that graphene is so thin and conductive of electrical currents that it may revolutionize and miniaturize today’s circuit boards. Since graphene has nanotechnology applications and can be injected into human bodies, could graphene eventually be used as injectable nano-particles that would be individualized for each person, making it a kind of “fingerprint” for each person as well as a “smart chip” that would be invisible inside human bodies even as it stores information about that individual?

My thanks to a reader who sent me the first link and prompted this post.

US Opens Second Drone Base in Niger [Plus Serious Implications]

Saturday, October 4th, 2014

The US recently established a second drone base in the very remote nation of Niger in Saharan Africa (first link). Many Americans, who are taught so little about geography in school, may never have heard of it. It is just north of Nigeria and this new drone base is located in the remote Agadez region of Niger. This item received almost no meaningful media coverage, but there is a very important purpose to it and it also begs an important question (which I’ll ask later in this post).

The second link reports that, months ago in 2014, the US dispatched 80 troops to this region to help look for the approximately 200 girls that were kidnapped by Boko Haram in northern Nigeria. There have been no reports that the USA has had any success in locating them yet. Boko Haram is another of the malignant strains of radical Islam, along with ISIL/ISIS, Hamas, Hezbollah, Al Shabab, etc., and there is now a report that the Boko Haram terrorists have copied a page from the ISIL/ISIS playbook of terror in beheading a captured Nigerian pilot (third link).

Why is this worth posting about to readers of this blog? Americans and the globe’s population likely have no concept of how vast a network of secretive drone bases are being operated by the US military and the CIA. The fourth link reports that the USA has at least 60 drone bases overseas that are known, and no one knows how many are being operated by the CIA or Pentagon without anyone being aware of them. The fifth link reports claims that there are over 60 secret drone bases on American soil as well and it gives a map of their locations (take a look and see if there is one near where you live!). Why does the USA have approximately as many drone bases within the USA as in all foreign nations put together? Hmm. Conspiracy theorists may be forgiven if they see a nefarious purpose that has not been disclosed. These bases are certainly not being used to secure the American borders. With so many drones and drone bases, the US could easily be monitoring the entire US southern border on a 24/7 basis to halt illegal immigration. However, the Obama administration (and the previous Bush administration that preceded it) obviously have/had no will to do so.

The last link estimates the US drone fleet had grown to 7,500 drones in the 2010/2011 time frame. At the rate of rapid growth in the drone force, there could be over 10,000 now. The estimate of 7,500 drones was for the number of drones operated by the Pentagon. Who knows how many drones are being operated by the CIA? Sometimes we are made aware of US drone strikes by the Pentagon or by the CIA in such places as Pakistan, Somalia, Yemen, etc. I’ve seen media reports that the US is using drones to reconnoiter or attack ISIL forces in Iraq and Syria. That would be logical and appropriate. To the drone operators who are managing drones that attack ISIL and other terrorist madmen, I can only say, “Go get ‘em!”

The US drone fleet and the network of bases (known and unknown) is now so vast that it may be possible for the USA to create a global, interlocking spy network that is integrated with spy satellites, NSA intercepts, etc. We may reach the point where nothing moves on earth without the CIA or the Pentagon knowing about it.

I had a cynical thought while preparing this post. The Obama administration is facing a likely political defeat in the US congressional elections and it desperately needs some kind of  “October Surprise” to rally voters to vote for Democrats to retain a Democratic Senate. What could that be? One possibility is that those drones and 80 US servicemen looking for the Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram may already know where many of them are and they are delaying their rescue until just prior to the election to help the Obama administration and the Democrats. With the US capable of filling the skies with drones over northern Nigeria and the NSA listening to all “chatter” in the region, how could they not know? Again, I admit that was a cynical thought. I hope this doesn’t prove to be the case.

What can be known is that Revelation 13:11-18 predicts that a coming “beast” system will have the power to monitor and control all global financial transactions in the latter days just prior to Jesus Christ’s return.  Why wouldn’t the beast power also have interlocking control over all that is moving on the earth via drone/satellite reconnaissance and complete monitoring of all electronic communications via the NSA? It appears that we are nearing the point where this is now possible technologically. This begs another question: Will the beast be an American president or a new global leader who assumes power over the American assets when he assumes leadership of a global government? We’ll have to wait and see. Before readers think the beast system will be all-powerful, I urge you to consider the impact the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 will have on the beast system’s plans. Revelation 11 prophesies the Two Witnesses will be archenemies of the beast system and will be able to plague it (or anything or anyone else) “as often as they wish.” A future post will examine the Two Witnesses more closely, but verses 3-11 show the Two Witnesses will anger and plague the beast leaders and system so terribly that the beast will finally kill the Two Witnesses after their 1,260-day ministry concludes. Until they are slain, the Two Witnesses will be Divinely protected and invulnerable to all the exotic weaponry the beast can throw at them. Indeed, Revelation 16:10 prophesies the beast leader will be weak before some other power in the latter days that the beast leader and his kingdom will “gnaw their tongues for pain.” Who might that “other power” be that can attack the beast power so successfully? The Two Witness minister for 1,260 days, almost simultaneous with the beast leader’s 42 months of allowed rule (Revelation 13: 1-5).  My bet is that the Two Witnesses are the power that besets the beast power with such plagues.

I wonder how proactive the Two Witnesses might be in their plagues. Let’s speculate. Perhaps they could announce that unless the NSA and all other global spy agencies dump all their data on innocent civilians, they will be plagued with a horrific plague (Ebola, paralysis, tertiary syphilis or some other unbearable affliction)? What if they order the US and all other global governments to stop spraying chem trails and confess their purpose, who was involved in the chem trail plot and then imprison them until Christ returns or receive a new, horrific plague from the Two Witnesses? Will the Two Witnesses order global governments to pass certain pieces of legislation whether they want to do so or not? When it comes to what they can do, Revelation 11: 6 states their powers will be unlimited and unstoppable for the duration of their ministry. Obviously, they will be protecting Christians wherever they are on the globe. The Two Witnesses may be given a few “legions of angels” to implement anything they order or assess on the globe during their ministry. Revelation 11:6 basically states “the sky is the limit” concerning their powers. The US and other governments are close to creating a global, interlocking intelligence network to monitor everyone and everything. However, the Two Witnesses will have Divine powers to wield and likely as many angels as they want to administer whatever they want to do. The Two Witnesses will have vastly greater power than the beast system.

If Revelation 11 is going to be fulfill literally, and I believe it will be, it’s going to get very interesting in future years. Everyone on earth will have to make a decision: Are you with God and the Two Witnesses or the Satanically-inspired beast system and the false prophet associated with the beast leader? There will be no neutral ground. You will have to decide at some point.

Ebola Comes to the USA!

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

The story of the spread of the Ebola virus into the USA is spreading so fast it is possible that the story may have expanded by the time you read this post. As readers surely know, a man traveling from Liberia to the USA spread the Ebola virus into the USA. Amazingly, when he went to a hospital ER for treatment in Dallas, Texas and told them he had come from a nation in the Ebola hot-zone, they didn’t take his condition seriously and sent him home (to expose more people). It has been reported as I write that a second Texas person may now have Ebola, but it has not yet been confirmed (first link). The second link reports that a third possible US case of Ebola in the USA is suspected in Hawaii. Initially, the Liberian man who spread Ebola to the USA led to health authorities saying that perhaps a dozen people may have been exposed, then the number went to 20…and to 80 and to 100 the last time I saw a news program update. The ambulance drivers who transported the Ebola man are now in quarantine as is the ambulance itself. Other people the man exposed are now quarantined as well.

The presence of Ebola in the USA and the realization that airline passengers could be innocently and unsuspectingly exposed to Ebola has led to stock market fears about Ebola’s effects on the global economy. Airline stocks have, understandably, been hit hard as people may not decide to travel by air until there are strict Ebola prevention protocols in place (third link). As this fear emerged, an article appeared in the 10-2-14 USA Today that sought to minimize people’s fears about being exposed to Ebola on airliners (fourth link). However, the final paragraph in that article was hardly reassuring as it acknowledged the risk of getting Ebola on an airliner, however small right now, is real.

The lack of Ebola-prevention protocols in global travel is appalling. Why aren’t passengers from nations with Ebola outbreaks being quarantined for a set number of days to make sure they are Ebola-free before they are allowed to travel out of those nations? That is a “no brainer” as far as I’m concerned. If such protocols had been in place in Liberia, the infected man there would never have been allowed to get on a plane to Brussels in Europe and then to two other flights to Dallas as his Ebola symptoms would have been caught in time to stop him from traveling. It is possible that this one case of an infected Ebola passenger on an airliner may yet lead to all the passengers on all the flights he traveled on having to be checked for Ebola as well as everyone they had contact with in the last week or so. That total would quickly run into the thousands in many nations. I hope it doesn’t get that bad.

The fifth link highlights the disgust by some in the medical community that the Obama administration and US health authorities are still not taking adequate measures to stop the spread of Ebola. It features a doctor who dressed in a bio-hazard suit at the Atlanta airport to highlight the fact that Ebola security measures are not yet in place. An interview I just saw with health experts on Al Jazeera America a short time ago confirmed that not only the USA but the entire world community is not taking this threat seriously yet. They said the WHO was saying it was not responsible for setting up a global preventative program and that the UN Security Council may have to meet to create global security protocols to make sure there is a global response in place to stop the disease from spreading quickly among the nations via airline passengers and global commerce. Although I could not find the link to a story about it in a web search, I saw a TV interview on either CNN, Fox News or Al Jazeera America that confirmed how lax US authorities are about this growing crisis. It was an interview with a Miami doctor who was returning from one of the Ebola “hot zone” nations in Africa. She said she was expecting to be screened by health officials before she would be allowed to re-enter the USA, but was surprised to see that no screening program existed at all! She was allowed to walk right through the airport back into the USA without any checks or questions. That means lots of other travelers from the Ebola hot-zone nations have also walked right into the USA and many other nations around the world with no checks or questions.

Some experts are warning that the rate of transmission of Ebola within the hot-zone African nations is increasing steadily and that as many as a million deaths from Ebola could be possible by early 2015 if the continued rate of transmission growth occurs. Although the death rate in those nations grows steadily, some media articles have noted that health-monitoring systems are so inadequate or non-existent in those African nations that the actual Ebola death toll is surely much higher than reported. At some point the rate of transmission will grow exponentially if major protective responses are not implemented soon. If the Ebola plague really does get as bad as some health experts predict, it will obviously be spreading to many other nations. Indeed, at some point, residents of the infected hot-zone African nations may flee via the jungle into other nations without telling anyone to save their lives. They may already be doing so. I wonder how many of them are already infected.

Jesus Christ warned that “pestilences” will occur during the latter-day period of time that would immediately precede his Second Coming. Obviously, he did not mean the localized, routine level of pestilences that have occurred throughout human history. He had to mean pestilences (plagues) on a much wider scale than usual for them to be a meaningful sign. This Ebola plague could eventually kill millions…or more…in many nations. Health experts are warning about this danger, but the governments of the world are doing little or nothing meaningful yet to stop its spread. Let’s hope they start doing so soon. If they don’t, the number of deaths could become astronomical at some point, and global commerce will come to as screeching halt. Maybe you might want to call your elected representatives to put some pressure on them for their governments to start acting responsibly instead of sticking their head in the sand about this threat.

New Scandal about to Hit Goldman Sachs and Wall Street?

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

In what is a developing story at this moment, a lawyer hired (and later fired) by the US Federal Reserve Board secretly recorded 46 hours (!) of insider conversations among officials at the US Federal Reserve Board which are reported to reveal a very cozy and corrupt relationship between the US Federal Reserve Board and the mega-bank, Goldman Sachs. This scandal is just beginning to unfold, and we will have to wait to see if heads really do roll over the secretly taped revelations.

The first link and second link describe the information about the story as it was about to break. The third link and fourth link are from the main media as this scandal is now being reported to the American public…just before a major election I might add. The third link was from the September 29, 2014 USA Today, which includes a quote from Senator Elizabeth Warren that the lack of accountability at the Big Banks “…threatens our whole economy.” I share her opinion.

The fourth link details what it describes as a “severe conflict of interest between the NY Federal Reserve and Goldman Sachs.” It is well worth your reading! I must admit that I’m not the least bit surprised by this new revelation about cozy corruption between the US Fed and Goldman Sachs. I have written about this relationship in posts over the years, and Rolling Stone magazine has been doing in-depth exposes about this relationship for years. Indeed, they have covered this story in such depth that the last link offers readers a menu of their articles and research reports into the cozy Fed-Goldman Sachs relationship. Readers can click on the links at that last link and read as many as they want about what has been known for the last four years or so about this cozy relationship.

What is noteworthy about the latest revelation is that is involves 46 hours (!) of conversations documenting the cozy Fed-Goldman Sachs relationship which were recorded by an attorney working in an insider position at the Fed. The tapes will have the words actually spoken by Fed officials. The revelations ought to give more impetus to Congressional efforts to pass a bill which will do an in-depth audit of the Federal Reserve Board’s activities.

Revelation 17-18, as I’ve noted many times in previous posts, prophesy that the global monetary/financial system in the latter days will come crashing down at some point, to be replaced by the final “beast” system which will hold sway for a mere 42 months (Revelation 13:1-5) before being obliterated by Jesus Christ’s return (Revelation 19:11-20:4). There are lots of huge stresses building up in the global financial/monetary system and we do not know what “trigger” will be the event or revelation which precipitates the collapse of Babylon the Great’s current system. It is worth noting that Revelation 18:2-3 prophesy that the latter-day Babylon the Great system will feature an intensely-corrupt and cozy, interlocking system of mutual aggrandizement between the “kings of the earth” (the political leaders and their agencies) and the “merchants of the earth” (an amazingly-accurate prophetic description of today’s multinational and international mega-corporations which do business all over the earth). The Rolling Stone’s series of articles about the cozy relationship between the US Fed and Goldman Sachs and the just-beginning scandal about the 46 hours of secretly-taped conversations inside the Fed’s offices fit the description contained in Revelation 18:2-3 quite well, I believe.

Israelis Take Delivery of New Submarine from Germany

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

Israel is taking delivery of its fourth state-of-the-art German-made submarine (first link). The Dolphin-class submarines are gradually entering service in the Israeli navy and the fifth such submarine is due to be delivered by the Germans to Israel in 2015. The new submarine features systems and weapons upgrades not installed in the first three submarines. It is widely believed that the Israeli submarines are capable of firing cruise missiles as well as performing many types of tactical missions.

The second link offers details about the capabilities of these Israeli submarines, and includes several pieces of very interesting information. It includes an item that I thought was of special interest. It includes commentary that the Israelis tested a nuclear-capable cruise missile off the coast of Sri Lanka years ago, and it opines that the Israelis may have done so in cooperation with the Indian military.  It also reports that the Israeli submarines already in service have performed many operational missions and have been deployed “thousands of kilometers from Israel.” Israeli submarines have traversed the Suez Canal at times, as noted in a previous post. With Egypt and the Israelis cooperating closely again, it is likely that Israeli submarines enter the Red Sea via the Suez Canal and take up positions in the Arabian Sea where they can hit Iranian targets with cruise missiles and interdict Iranian shipping if either mission becomes necessary.

As the entire Mideast increasingly turns to chaos with wars raging in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and with Libya having disintegrated into warring factions, Israel obviously has a need to continue strengthening its military and security capabilities. Zechariah 14 prophesies the Israelis will be involved in a great war as this age comes to an end. However, Zechariah 14 also prophesies that Israel will be saved via Divine intervention. Zechariah 12 also prophesies that God guarantees the survival of the Jewish nation in the Mideast (called “Judah” in biblical terminology).

Genesis 49:8-10 contains a special prophecy for “Judah” in the latter days of this age (Genesis 49:1). Genesis 49:9 characterizes Judah as a “lion’s whelp” in the latter days and like a lion that takes prey. This terminology fits the Israelis perfectly.  A “lion’s whelp” is a lion cub or young lion, meaning the latter-day nation of Judah will be a young and small nation in the latter days–which it is. However, its characterization as a lion that takes prey means it will be powerful and strong despite its small size and its being a young nation. Those who desire a more in-depth examination of the link between the Israelis/Jews and the biblical term “Judah” can read my article, Four Reasons the Jews are Judah.

US House Votes for “Top-to-bottom” Audit of US Fed

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

The US House of Representatives voted a few days ago to have a federal investigative agency conduct a “top-to-bottom” audit of the US Federal Reserve Board (see first link). The vote passed with many Democrats joining Republicans to vote for the bill. The bill is expected to die a quiet death in the US Senate, where it seems to me that Sen. Harry Reid makes sure that any legislation that makes sense doesn’t even get a vote. There are more perspectives on the bill in the second link and third link.

However, the overwhelming vote in the House, with many Democrats supporting it, may cause some Democrats, especially those in troubled re-election campaigns, to vote for the audit bill if they are given a chance to do so. If the Senate switches to GOP domination after the November elections in the USA, such bills will finally come up for votes in the US Senate. Many bills, now blocked by Sen. Reid, could be passed and then sent to the White House to face a possible veto by President Obama. It is worth noting though that the US House already passed the “audit the Fed” bill by a more than 2/3rds majority, which is a veto-proof majority.

The Federal Reserve Board and all its affiliated Big Banking institutions are likely terrified at the thought of such an audit occurring. The Fed has made many statements and reports to the public, but no one has ever audited the Fed to know if it is telling the truth on any of its statements or its action. Such a audit is badly needed. If the US Senate goes Republican and this bill passes the Congress and goes to the White House, there will be tremendous pressure on both sides of the issue on President Obama. If such an audit took place, it could shake the very foundations of the entire US banking and lending industries. Its effects would ripple through the world economy because the US dollar is still the global reserve currency.

We know from the prophecy in Revelation 17-18 that the current global banking/monetary/commercial system will collapse at some point in the latter day sequence of events and be replaced by the final “beast” system. I have written many posts on the possible triggers that could cause this prophecy to be fulfilled. An audit of the Fed which revealed widespread corruption and manipulations of global financial and commodity markets is one more possible trigger for a collapse of confidence in the US Fed and the US dollar that could cause a sudden end to the US dollar’s role as the global reserve currency and the elimination of the US Federal Reserve Board altogether.

If such an audit bill ever becomes law in the USA, I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a sudden demand for shredders in all Federal Reserve Board offices and that many of its emails would “disappear” in the same fashion that the emails of US IRS official, Lois Lerner, also mysteriously “disappeared.”

For an in-depth historical view of why the modern global system of global banking and commerce is called “Babylon the Great” in biblical prophecy, please read my article, The Babylonian Origin of the Modern Banking System. I think you will find it eye-opening and that it will provide you with information about the origins of the banking system that you will never read in any economics textbook.
