US Federal Official Charged with Spying for China re: America’s Dams

January 7th, 2015

An official for the USA’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was arrested by the FBI on a charge of spying for China against the USA. The arrested NOAA official, a person of Chinese descent, is charged with “stealing sensitive information from a federal database for the nation’s dams and lying about the breach to federal agents” (see first link). The link mentions this could be part of an effort by China to aid their cyber hacking efforts against US infrastructure, but I see another possible, and more sinister, purpose. The first link also reports that the arrested NOAA official was seeking sensitive information on all US dams, and one piece of desired information was “the number of deaths that would occur if a dam failed.” That sounds to me like a much more lethal purpose was involved with this spying effort, and it perfectly fits the Ezekiel 38-39 prophecy about an attack by Russia, China, Iran and their allies vs. the USA, the NATO nations and their allies.

The second link adds that the sensitive information sought by China “was to gather sensitive information on critical US infrastructure for possible use in a future conflict (emphasis added).” This indicates China is making very meticulous advance planning to carry out the prophesied Ezekiel 38-39 attack at some future date. The links report that China wants to know how many Americans will be killed if particular dams fail. Obviously, China wanted to review all US dams to make an advance damage assessment for each one of them. The second link reports this spying effort was to prepare for a future “conflict.” Obviously, that conflict (let’s call it a “war”) would be between the USA and China. If China wants to know how many Americans will be killed if certain US dams are destroyed and is making preparations for a “conflict” with the USA, it is also very apparent that China is making plans for a “conflict” on US soil.

The second link also notes the Chinese wanted information on what year each American dam was built. This could be a critical factor in preparing an invasion/war plan. Surely, any attack upon North America would be preceded by a massive, all-out cyber attack on all US infrastructure and defense targets. Determining what year each dam was built will help the Chinese know whether a particular dam’s control systems are mechanical, analog or digital. All dams with digital electronic systems are almost certainly to be the most vulnerable to an EMP blast. I’m not sure if all analog systems are vulnerable to an EMP blast as well, but the older dams with mechanical control systems may be invulnerable to an EMP blast. Knowing what year each American dam was built would aid Chinese war planners in knowing whether certain dams will surely be disabled by an EMP blast and which would need to be destroyed by saboteurs using explosives, RPG’s, etc. China would also learn which dams supply hydroelectric power to cities, military bases, defense plants, etc. These dams would be targeted for destruction as part of any war-planning effort.

There is no reason for anyone to keep their heads in the sand any longer or live in denial. It is clear that China is part of an alliance planning an invasion of the USA and they are doing meticulous advance planning to make preparations for this invasion. China’s evaluation of every American dam would also indicate that they are making determinations about which dams to capture with infiltrators and use them to their own purposes as part of any invasion effort.

Ezekiel 38-39 has revealed all the major aspects of this future invasion of North America, Europe and the allies of the modern nations of the “house of Israel”, the modern descendants of the ten tribes of Israel. [Please read my article, The United States in Biblical Prophecy, as a starting point in confirming my assertions]. Several of my articles, many of my audio messages and all my books will provide indisputable evidence that the USA, the UK, many European nations, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, etc. are descended from the biblical “ten tribes of Israel.” Modern Jews are descended from the tribe of Judah with elements of a few other tribes included in their number (see my article, Four Reasons the Jews are Judah).

Ezekiel 38-39 make it clear this attack will come mainly from the north (Ezek. 38:15) and it will have the goal of seizing control of the wealth and assets of the modern Israelite (i.e. “Western” nations). This fits completely with modern geography. Any attack from Russia and China vs. the USA will not come across the Pacific Ocean. It will come via the invaders seizing airport and seaport facilities in Alaska and then doing a 24/7 insertion of troops, armored vehicles, warplanes, etc. into Alaska to sortie ever-further to the south toward the lower 48 states of the USA as soon as their forces can get there. America has been duped into depleting and exhausting its military forces in wars that have little served American interests. Much of the USA’s military forces are stationed overseas. The USA has left its own homeland largely unguarded. When this invasion comes into North America via Alaska (which used to be Russian territory), advance strikes by pre-placed saboteurs will disable as much of the USA’s military forces still left in the continental USA so they can offer little useful resistance. It may be that the most effective opposition may come from armed citizens, who, thanks to the USA’s Second Amendment, have perhaps hundreds of millions of guns and billions of rounds of ammo to fight with. Indeed, it is God’s will that all such weaponry be used to fight the invaders when they come. Ezekiel 38:21 foretells that God will “call for a sword” against the invaders so it will truly be a “Holy War” for the invaded nations to resist the invasion as God has pre-authorized everyone to resist it with their weaponry. The good news is that Ezekiel 38:20-39:15 foretell that God himself will enter the war on the side of the attacked nations of the modern ten tribes of Israel. Russia, China and their allies will expect a quick, “blitzkrieg” victory, but they are doomed to be defeated. God has already pre-determined the invaders will be repulsed and they will have few survivors (Ezekiel 39:1-6).

Is there anyone “out there” who still doubts that Ezekiel 38-39 is the single most important prophecy in the Bible for the latter-day roles and fates of many nations? That China is so meticulously planning every aspect of this invasion that they are even seeking detailed formation regarding which American dams to destroy and which to use to their own benefit in a future “conflict” makes it clear what China’s future plans are toward the USA. One does not need to believe in the Bible to see that China is making detailed war-plans for an invasion of North America. However, since God has revealed much about the course of this future invasion/war, you can read the biblical details about it in my article, What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveals about a Future World War III. I hope that US war-planners can see the obvious goal of the Chinese spying efforts, but I doubt it. I hope you will read it. Your life may depend on it.

Media Mention of Israeli-Sunni Arab Alliance

January 4th, 2015

During the last two years, I have periodically mentioned that the Mideast was being changed by a behind-the-scenes alliance being forged between Israel and the key Arab Sunni nations. One post reported that the intelligence ministers of Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Jordan were meeting on a regular basis to exchange information. The main impetus behind this developing alliance is a mutual fear or/antipathy toward the militarism and ambitions of the Iranian Shiites. Not too many years ago such an alliance would have been unthinkable, but it was midwifed by the logic of the adage: “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.” Both the Sunni Arab nations and Israel need regional allies against the growing Iranian threat.

I recently noticed a reference in a popular media source that acknowledged this alliance as being a reality in Mideast geopolitics. The first link, from Debka.com, mentions this alliance as being a reality that has had benefits for all parties. Please read the link to see the listing of these benefits to the nations involved. Personally, I think that this alliance was becoming so strong and represented such a threat to Iranian plans for Mideast hegemony that Iran tried to arrange a regime change in Egypt by putting the radical Muslim Brotherhood in power and force out the Mubarak regime. Thankfully, the Egyptian military moved forcefully to remove the Muslim Brotherhood from power and thwart Iran’s plans.

This alliance does have a danger posed to it, as is alluded to in the first link. Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel who has helped form this alliance of the four nations, is facing an election soon and if a different Israeli leader is elected as Prime Minister, it could jeopardize the dynamics of this alliance. Personally, I hope Netanyahu wins, but I will make no prediction on the outcome of the Israeli elections. It is also possible that a new leader will continue Netanyahu’s policy of pursuing this alliance as it is clearly in Israel’s interests to do so. The policy of the Obama administration in the USA in cozying up to Iran on a number of issues actually pushes the Israelis and Sunni Arabs even closer together. None of these nations can truly trust the USA as long as Obama is president. Egypt’s relations with the USA have turned chilly due to the USA’s perceived support of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt’s power struggle, and the Saudis are chilly toward the USA due to Obama reneging on his “red line” promise in the Syrian civil war and Obama’s act of throwing Mubarak, a key Saudi ally, ”under the bus” in the Egyptian power struggle. The Israeli-American rift has been evident in Obama’s animosity toward Netanyahu that has been documented in many media stories and the US snubbing of Israeli Defense officials during their recent Washington DC visit. These topics were discussed in my previous posts.

The second link discusses a meeting facilitated by the Saudis to arrange a reconciliation between Egypt and Qatar–which supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt’s power struggle. As a sidebar to this story, I heard a report that the Egyptian courts have decreed that a new trial be held for three Al Jazeera journalists held in an Egyptian cell. Since Al Jazeera’s Arabic news network is hosted in Qatar, it is entirely possible that the three Al Jazeera journalists have been detained in Egypt as bargaining chips for use in Egyptian-Qatari talks. This is an important issue with the Egyptians as Qatar has been supporting the radical Hamas regime in Gaza (third link) which is also aligned with the radical Jihadis who are waging a guerrilla and terrorist war inside Egypt vs. Egyptian targets–especially in the Sinai Peninsula. Israel and Egypt both want these terrorist Jihadi forces eliminated and that has led to unprecedented Israeli treaty permission for Egypt to place major Egyptian forces inside the Sinai Peninsula (as reported in the first link).

These geopolitical struggles and realignments in the Mideast are important, as their outcome will determine which Mideast nations eventually align with the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog-Magog alliance that will include Iran and which nations will be aligned with the USA, NATO nations and their global allies.

I doubt you will see these geopolitical trends reported in the establishment western media which seems to be preoccupied with “info-tainment” stories instead of hard news.

CIA Admits Many UFO Sightings Were Secret US Warplanes

January 3rd, 2015

At the very end of the year 2014, the CIA admitted that many of the UFO sightings in the 1950s period were generated by secret flights of the US military’s own U-2 spy plane (see first link and second link). The first link indicates the U-2 spy plane program apparently generated some UFO reports as late as 1974 even though by then the U-2 program had become known to the world. No doubt, other UFO sightings were generated by other secret US military warplane programs such as the more-advanced SR-71 Blackbird spy plane and the Stealth Fighter deployed in the First Persian Gulf War. Who knows what other secret warplane projects have generated lots of UFO sightings over the years? The third link offers information about a possible secret US military aircraft called the “Aurora” which can reportedly travel up to six times the speed of sound. At a speed that great, any such plane would seem to “disappear” quickly from the view of any observer on the ground. Other nations besides the USA may be testing secret military aircraft as well.

While not specifically stated in the links, now that it has been admitted that many UFOs were actually sightings of secret US warplanes, the CIA’s admission is tantamount to a confession the US government was lying about the cause of UFO sightings for many years due to national security reasons. That same logic would apply to any “black” project test models being tested or flown today.

This report especially caught my eye due to a personal connection to an early UFO sighting that turned out to be the U-2. A former US military pilot confided to me decades ago a personal experience he had in the 1950s. He was flying an American warplane in the airspace of NATO-ally Turkey in the 1950s during the Cold War on a routine mission. He told me he was flying around 25-30,000 feet high when he looked upward at the sky above him and saw an airplane far higher than his aircraft and directly overhead flying toward Russia. He reported the sighting to his superior officers when he landed and was soon ushered into a meeting with command-level officers who told him to “forget” he had ever seen it. It was surely a U-2 spy plane. The world found out about the U-2 flights over Russia when the Russians shot one down in 1960 and captured the pilot (fourth link). After that date, the U-2 program was no longer a secret.

One cannot help but wonder what hush-hush “black” projects exist today that are being kept secret for now, but which are generating periodic UFO reports when they are seen by the public. We can only guess, but I’d be willing to bet that there is more than one secret airplane being the source of some current UFO sightings. I also suspect that some of these secret craft are no longer technically traditional “airplanes” (with standard wings, jet engines, etc.), but are aerial vehicles with new kinds of technologies and propulsion methods. A prophecy in Revelation 13:1-4 is the basis for my viewpoints. Verse 4 prophesies that when the final human governmental system, called the “beast,” takes power in the latter days, it will apparently unveil new and unexpected weapons systems that nations and peoples all over the world will marvel at. The world is prophesied to say in reaction to the Beast’s ascent to power: “Who is able to make war with him?” That statement clearly indicates that the Beast power will unveil new high-tech weaponry to intimidate the nations into submitting to his rule. Some of those secret weapons systems may be generating UFO reports already.

2014 Website Statistical Review

January 2nd, 2015

Since we have concluded one year and begun a new one, I thought I would share with readers some information about the statistics compiled by my web hosting service regarding usage and visits to my website. It may be of interest to readers to know how many other readers there are and where they are located.

The web hosting service compiles many statistics, including the following totals. The number of hits at my website in 2014 was 12,877,971. The number of files accessed was 11,817,434 and the number of actual visits was 655,673. This means the average month had a little over a million hits, just barely under a million files and 54,639 visitors. There were also over 340 million Kbytes of information downloaded from my website during the year. There were two months in particular where the number of Kbytes downloaded skyrocketed far above the monthly average without any appreciable increase in the number of visitors, which indicates to me that a few visitors chose to download an immense amount of information from my website. While some visitors enter my website via the blog directly, others enter via the homepage at stevenmcollins.com, while many others locate my website via web searches on particular topics. My blog began seven years ago with no visitors and no referrals or recommendations from any formal entity, so the growth in the website’s traffic has mostly come from word-of-mouth referrals and people finding the website on the Internet.

You may also find it of interest to know which nations generated the most visitors. To begin with, I want to relate something that is puzzling to me. For years, approximately 12% of all visits to and statistical information accessed at my website were from visitors who were classified by the web hosting service as “unresolved/unknown.” This year, that percentage skyrocketed as the end of 2014 approached. In October, that percentage was still 14.3%, but in November it rose to 29.6% and to 50% in December. Are so many visitors either untraceable by the web hosting service or are they masking their origin? I really don’t know enough about technological data to answer that question, but I thought I’d let readers know about this recent trend. For that reason, the nations with visitors accessing my website and their respective order in the rankings is based only on visitors with identifiable nations of origin. In any given month, there are visitors from between 110-130 nations accessing my website. Many visitors are aggregated by their domain names, not their nations of origin. For that reason, visitors from “.com, .net, .org, .gov, .mil and .edu” are always ranked in the top 30 categories accessing the website.

In terms of identifiable nations, the top-ranking nations in December (mostly in descending order) were: the USA, Canada, Australia, Russia, the UK, the EU, Germany, China, South Africa, France, Brazil, the Netherlands, Singapore, Taiwan, Romania, New Zealand, Sweden, India, Switzerland, Norway, Finland, Kenya and Israel. Other nations that have been in the top 30 nations in recent months are Colombia, Mexico, the Ukraine, Italy, Poland and Belgium. Russia has risen to the fourth most identifiable nation in December from only the 27th most identifiable nation in October. For years, China never registered at all in the data, but that has changed recently. Keep in mind that these visitors are from web locations that are identifiable by the web host service. Since so many visitors are now categorized as “unresolved/unknown,” I do not know what nations are generating the most visitors among that unidentified category.

If visitors have the time to do so, they can access the archives of perhaps as many as 1,500 posts that have appeared on my blog in the last seven years. In the right column you can Select Month under Archives or type into the search box to look for posts on a particular topic that interests you. In the archives, you will find posts on such topics as invisibility/”cloaking” technology and its possible role in fulfilling some biblical prophecies, possible development of Chinese nano-technology super weapons, Russia’s ingenious Cold War era “Dead Hand” doomsday system, etc. Many of the posts, even from years ago, are as current today in informational quality as the time that they were initially written.

Also, it is worth noting that my website receives zero sponsorship or financial support from any organization, church or entity. I am entirely “on my own” in writing for this website, and that also guarantees that my content will be completely independent from any denominational or political dogmas. My writings attempt to faithfully apply the histories, narratives, teachings and the prophecies of the Holy Bible to modern times and events in as objective a viewpoint as possible. In doing so, I hope and endeavor to provide information and perspectives to Christians/believers regardless of their denominational or organizational affiliation or where they are in their personal walk with their Creator. It will be my goal to continue providing informative and thought-provoking material to the readers who visit my website. If you have found the material at my website to be valuable to you, I urge you to refer my website to your friends who may also have an interest in this type of information.

Iran’s New “Suicide Drone” and the Price of Oil

December 30th, 2014

Iran has conducted a major military exercise, and part of that exercise was its unveiling of a new “suicide drone.” The first link and second link give a report on this exercise and the new “suicide drone.” The first link, from the Arab media, shows a picture of it.

Frankly, in looking at the photograph of Iran’s new “suicide drone,” I was underwhelmed. It looks to me like an upgraded version of the old World War II-era German V-1 “buzz-bombs” that had wings and took off from a ramp. Questions to ask are: What is its speed and range? How large a payload does it carry? I’m just a layman of course, but based on the large size of its wings compared to its fuselage size, it’s my guess that it is a rather slow drone. If it is a copy of a US reconnaissance drone, it stands to reason that this drone is not very fast and its original American design was for it to hover slowly a long time in the air. If this was a multi-mach weapon, its wings would sheer off from aerodynamic stress. That is why fast cruise missiles have very small fins for course corrections and navigation. I hardly think this is a new “wonder weapon.” It is my view that American navy ships could shoot these “suicide drones”‘ down rather easily. Personally, I think the term “suicide drone” is a rather colorful term for this contraption. A better term, in my opinion, would be to call it a slow cruise missile. However, oil tankers would be easy targets for this and any other Iranian cruise missiles.

The much bigger story is where the Iranian military exercise was conducted. it was conducted in an area which included the waterways around the Strait of Hormuz, which the first link notes is the passageway through which 1/5th of the world’s oil shipments pass on the routes to world markets. Iran was sending a message to the world that it believes it can cut off the supply of the world’s oil from Persian Gulf ports (i.e. Saudi, Kuwaiti, and UAE ports) to world markets if it chooses to do so. The “suicide drone” announcement was, I believe, a sideshow.

This Iranian military exercise around the Strait of Hormuz may have been a very blunt message to Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf oil-producing states that the price of oil has fallen far enough and that the Saudis and their allies need to cut production of oil to boost the global oil price. OPEC was not united in refusing to cut oil production to keep the oil price higher. Many oil-producing nations do not support the lower-oil policies of the Saudi-led oil producers. The third link relates the Saudi position in maintaining a low-price policy for oil, but the last link reports that such oil-producing nations as Venezuela, Libya, Russia, Iran and Nigeria do not support the Saudi low-oil-price policy. Russia is especially being hurt by the low oil prices, and Iran is their ally in the “Gog-Magog” alliance prophesied in Ezekiel 38-39 of the Bible. Perhaps Russia told Iran to conduct these military exercises around the choke-point though which Saudi oil flows to world markets as a message to the Saudis that Russia has “had enough” of the Saudi oil policy. Were the Russians giving the Saudis a warning via their junior Iranian ally? I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if that was the purpose of the massive Iranian military exercise in the area that controls the transit of oil loaded from Saudi oil ports.

Iranians and Americans Allied in Fighting ISIL Inside Iraq

December 28th, 2014

This brief post is to let all readers know about a noteworthy news item from the torn-apart Mideast in case you didn’t see it in your media outlets. Iran and America have become de facto allies in the war against ISIL, whether they wanted to become allies or not. In previous posts, I’ve cited links which indicated that the Iranian military was fighting inside Iraq against ISIL forces. It has now been officially confirmed. In the first link and second link, there are notices about a senior Iranian commander, a general, being killed in a war-zone north of Baghdad where Iraqi soldiers were fighting ISIL forces. The links give the same story, but I enclosed two news sources as citing the same facts to buttress the story’s credibility.

Obviously, if an Iranian general was involved in a battle with ISIL forces deep inside Iraqi territory, he was not there alone. There had to be other Iranian soldiers there as well who would be accompanying an Iranian general. It is also noteworthy that this was an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general. The Revolutionary Guard forces within Iran are deemed the most loyal to Iran’s ruling mullahs and receive the best weaponry. The regular Iranian army is generally regarded as less reliable to the Iranian regime and it gets lesser-quality war material.  In previous posts, I’ve reported that an Iranian army armored division, equipped with obsolete tanks, was positioned northeast of Baghdad in case they were needed to defend that city. That a Revolutionary Guard general was killed inside Iraq indicates Iran has committed some of its elite forces to defeating ISIL inside Iraq and defending the Shiite region of southern Iraq. That this is now being openly admitted by Iranian sources further indicates that Iran is very committed to making sure the Shiite central government of Iraq survives to remain an ally of Iran. Iran no longer cares if the world knows its forces are fighting inside Iraq.

There is another aspect to this story that adds another chapter in the bizarre history of strange alliances in the Mideast. The nations or entities allied together to do serious battle with ISIL include the USA, the  Sunni Kurds, Shiite Iran and the Shiite-central government of Iraq. The USA supplies tactical airstrikes while the Kurds, Iraqis and Iranians provide “boots on the ground.” Occasionally, the air forces of Saudi Arabia, Jordan or the UAE do fly a sortie vs. ISIL targets, but they are reportedly few in number (a Jordanian warplane was shot down a few days ago). I heard and saw one “talking head” on a cable-TV news program state that 97% of the “coalition” air strikes are being conducted by the USA. Some time ago, the news media reported that the UK, France and Australia had sent warplanes to fight ISIL targets on the ground. Someone ought to launch a search party to see what happened to those warplanes. No one has heard from them since to my knowledge. Apparently they were sent to the region in a “show the flag” mission, not to conduct any serious missions.

The third link has an assertion that directly relates to this topic, but it well worth your reading in its entirely. It is written by a Mideastern Arab columnist whose piece about the state of the Mideastern Arab and extended Muslim nations contains excellent and insightful analysis. Outside of Tunisia, which just conducted a successful democratic election, the entire region is sliding into chaos and some Islamic nations are disintegrating. He asserts that in Iraq, pilots of the US Air Force and the Iranian Air Force have actually divided up Iraqi airspace for conducting air operations against ISIL targets on the ground. I doubt we will see that acknowledged in the US media, but it is apparently common knowledge in Mideastern media outlets. I doubt the American-Iranian alliance vs. ISIL will grow into anything more than a limited and temporary alliance against the ISIL cancer spreading like a malignancy throughout the Mideast. Indeed, the Arab writer of the third link calls ISIL the “devil’s rejects.” I believe his choice of words is most apt.

Ezekiel 38:2-6 confirms that Iran (“Persia”) will be allied to Russia, China and the rest of the Gog-Magog alliance vs. the USA, NATO and their allies at the very end of this age, so the Bible also agrees that the current convergence of Iranian and American interests will be temporary.

US Nuclear Forces and Defense Policies in Disarray

December 24th, 2014

It turns out that the national security situation for the USA is worse than we realized. Two recent reports reveal just how bad the situation has become.

At a time when Russia is “resurgent,” Iran is building nuclear weapons, North Korea is “bellicose” and China is building a large nuclear weapons inventory, the USA, under President Obama, has been seriously neglecting its nuclear forces (see first link). The first link offers a grim assessment of how badly the US nuclear forces have deteriorated in recent years. However, to get this bad, the period of deterioration has to include more than just the Obama presidency. It is now evident that morale is dreadful in the USAF’s nuclear missile silos and command structure, and that immediate action is needed to rectify the situation. The link states, “the nuclear force is suffering from years of neglect [and] mismanagement.” Things have gotten so bad “at the top” that some are even foolishly wondering whether to even keep US Minutemen missiles on active duty. The USA urgently needs to maintain all three elements of its historic “triad” of nuclear deterrent forces: land-based, sea-based and air-borne nuclear-deliverable weapons. One expert is cited in the link as wondering if a land-based missile would even “take off” it was commanded to do so. All Americans should ask: How did our leaders neglect our defense forces so badly and do such a horrible job of managing and maintaining our critical nuclear forces?

The second link and third link, I think, answer that question. They report that three of Obama’s former Secretaries of Defense have criticized Obama for his defense policies and (in the words of the link’s author) “that he might be riskily mismanaging our national security.” It paints an alarming picture that Obama’s inner circle of White House advisers (who lack military skills) “run things [and the] Pentagon expertise be damned.” The second link cites the following as specific urgent needs: (A) that the White House realize military forces need to be increased, not downsized, and (B) that Obama realize ISIS forces in the Mideast will not be defeated with “‘no boots on the ground. ” Former Secretary Gates is cited as agreeing “that cutting the military the way we are right now is a huge, huge mistake.” I couldn’t agree more.

Previous articles I’ve seen have reported that Obama wants to cut the army to pre-World War II levels, mothball the critically-vital A-10 “Warthogs” which are necessary for proper air support for ground forces, etc. The A-10s, if unleashed on ISIL/ISIS armored columns in the occupied areas of Syria and Iraq, would make short work of them. Why hasn’t the US used its best weapon against ISIL columns? Is it because the Obama administration is too stubborn to admit is wrong in its plans and doesn’t want to allow the A-10 to demonstrate how effective it is and how vital it is to US national security?

The mismanagement of US military forces under President Obama is breathtaking. However, what do you expect when a president is elected who has no military experience, knowledge or skills? Indeed, did Obama even know how to properly sight in a BB gun when he took office? Obama’s ignorance of US military matters and military terminology was so great that he once referred to a “navy corpsman” (a medic) as a “corpseman” when the correct pronunciation is (phonetically speaking) a “core-man.” No wonder military morale is so bad. Obama is unquestionably, in my opinion, the most unqualified person to be commander-in-chief who has ever occupied the Oval Office.

Obama has another two years in office to continue to dishearten the troops and screw up the military. God help the USA. We badly need it. Would that we had a Ronald Reagan-type president to clean up the mess Obama has made of the US military and our national security situation.

There is a glaringly-obvious reality in world geopolitics: the Gog-Magog alliance of Russia, China and Iran grows steadily stronger while the western alliance led by the USA and NATO grows steadily weaker. I fear that at some point in the future, the weakness of the western alliance will become so glaring that the Gog-Magog alliance will think they can defeat the West with a sudden, surprise attack–which is exactly what Ezekiel 38-39 prophesies. For more on how this biblical prophecy foretells the future as it will unfold before our eyes, please read my article: What Ezekiel 38-39 Reveal about a Future World War III. I wish I had some good news to pass on, but trends indicate that events are accelerating toward a situation where Ezekiel 38-39 will be fulfilled. Please remember that I do not predict a year when this event will be fulfilled. It is clear from the prophecy’s context that it will be fulfilled at the very end of our age when Divine intervention cuts short World War III and saves the human race from destroying itself (Matthew 24:22).

American Troops Engage ISIL Forces in Iraqi Ground Combat

December 22nd, 2014

The British media is reporting that US troops engaged ISIL ground forces in Anbar province in Iraq a few days ago (first link). An ISIL force attacked an Iraqi airbase where the US forces were positioned and the US troops had to engage the ISIL forces in ground combat. This is the first media account of US ground forces fighting ISIL ground forces to my knowledge. It is entirely possible that US Special Forces have engaged ISIL forces at various times, but if this has happened, it has happened without any media fanfare. This combat also involved US warplanes supporting the US troops on the ground.

US forces may have no choice but to engage in further combat with ISIL forces as the Iraqi army still seems to have no will to seriously resist ISIL. The second link reports that ISIL forces are continuing to push Iraqi forces out of Anbar province located west of Baghdad. Indeed, the southern front of the ISIL war on Iraq seems to be going ISIL’s way. The ISIL forces have even gotten dangerously close to the Jordanian border and skirmishes on the Jordanian border have already been reported (third link). If Jordanian forces become engaged in open battle with ISIL forces, it will be very hard for Saudi forces to stay out of the war on the ground.

On the other hand, ISIL forces are on the run in northern Iraq. Supported by US and UAE air attacks, the Kurdish Peshmerga have gained a major victory over ISIL forces (fourth link and fifth link). The Kurdish forces rescued stranded Yazidis on Mt. Sinjar by forcing ISIL fighters to retreat from the region. The Kurds seem poised to also seize the city of Sinjar in northern Iraq from ISIL forces. I watched reports on Al Jazeera America TV which showed the Kurds were attacking with some of their own tank columns, which were sporting brightly-colored toppings on their tank turrets so US warplanes could recognize them from the air as Kurdish “friendly” forces. I can’t help but think that now that this tactic has been publicized, the ISIL forces will do the same thing to confuse US and allied warplanes about the identity of tanks and armored vehicles on the ground. The Kurdish successes indicate that the Kurds are carving out as large an area in northern Iraq as possible to come under their jurisdiction in an independent Kurdistan when the war with ISIL is concluded. I don’t blame them. They deserve an independent nation of their own as they are the only real force in the Mideast which has not only opposed ISIL with “boots on the ground,” but they have also shown themselves to be an honorable people by sheltering many refugees from ISIL thugs regardless of whether the refugees were Sunnis, Shiites, Christians, or Yazidis.

With no air force or navy and their forces scattered all over Iraq and Syria, ISIL forces would not be hard to defeat rather quickly if the USA, the Saudis, Jordanians and others in the “coalition” committed ground forces to join the Kurds in fighting ISIL troops on the ground. The Kurdish successes in the north confirm the value of combining air power with ground forces to defeat and drive back ISIL forces. The Kurdish advance in the north is also threatening to cut off ISIL forces located in Mosul.

One curious item is reported in the last link. It reports that ISIL is receiving planeloads of weaponry from unknown parties, and that the planes are reportedly coming from central Asian nations. If this is true, then US surveillance assets should be able to easily trace these arms shipments coming to ISIL at ISIL-controlled airfields in Iraq.  At the very least, US warplanes could easily destroy all planes landing at ISIL-controlled airfields to stop this flow of weaponry to ISIL. This is so obviously a necessary step that one wonders why it hasn’t been done already. Is the US serious about fighting ISIL or not? If it doesn’t destroy or shoot down all aircraft landing at ISIL-controlled airfields, the Obama administration isn’t really serious about defeating ISIL, no matter what it says publicly. All other nations can see this reality as well.

Prophetically, we are continuing to see the map of the Mideast and other Muslim regions re-drawn as the outcome of the fighting will determine which nations are in the Ezekiel 38-39 Gog-Magog alliance and which ones will be in the alliance led by the modern nations of the ten tribes of Israel which migrated out of Asia into Europe in the 3rd-6th centuries AD as the Goths, Saxons, Germans, Vandals, etc. after the massive Israelite empires of Parthia and Scythia fell in the regions we now call Mesopotamia, Iran, the Caucasus and southern Russia. The nations of Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya no longer effectively exist. Afghanistan and Pakistan are at risk of destabilization. Lebanon is effectively partitioned already as Hezbollah controls the southern region of the nation. Egypt would have collapsed if the Egyptian army had not stepped in decisively to expel the Muslim Brotherhood from power. This process of nations falling apart and re-forming into new entities is certainly not yet over.

Falling Oil Prices and the Global Financial Power Struggle

December 18th, 2014

Many consumers in the world are currently benefiting from lower oil and gas prices, but they are, in my opinion, mostly unaware of a titanic struggle that is occurring in the world’s financial and commodity markets for global dominance. The two major rivals are the US Federal Reserve Board and its many Wall Street/Big Business allies around the world. On the other side are Russia and China and their growing number of allies, who are slowly taking steps to replace the global dominance of the US Fed, Wall Street, etc. The Bible’s book of Revelation foretold approximately 2000 years ago that this very struggle would occur in the latter days of our current age. As long-time readers know, Revelation 17-18 symbolically identifies the bloc led by the US Federal Reserve Board, Wall Street and its allies as “Babylon the Great” (and also as “The Great Whore”). This is the bloc which has controlled global commerce and monetary matters since World War II. The same bloc also dominated global commerce, finance and monetary matters prior to World War II, but it was then dominated more by the British Empire and the Bank of England. The global bloc which is rising to challenge the dominance of the US Fed-led bloc is called “the seven heads and ten horns,” and the Bible prophesies that the “seven heads and ten horns” bloc will eventually win this struggle and overturn the dominance of the US Fed and its allies. The Bible does not predict when this will occur, and neither do I. What we are seeing is ever-more evidence that this titanic struggle is now already occurring, but mostly away from public view.

I’m sure all readers are following the global drop in oil prices which is also causing ripple effects in pulling down many commodity and precious and base metals markets around the world. Clearly, the USA, Saudi Arabia and others are currently targeting the rulership of Vladimir Putin of Russia as well as Russia itself. The first link examines this struggle and quotes Russia’s foreign minister as saying on French TV that “the sanctions [vs. Russia] were intended to end Putin’s regime.” He is likely right. The article’s analysis also warns that backing Russia into a corner could backfire as Russia may simply renege on its foreign debt obligations. This would leave many western banks “holding the bag” and suffering large losses. It may be that Putin, if he chooses that course of action, will announce to the world that OPEC, the USA, etc. forced him into taking this action and the world should blame OPEC and the USA for Russia’s actions. If Russia is forced into renouncing its foreign debt, some major western banks may have solvency problems and this could cause a crisis in the West’s banking system. A domino effect, cascading wave of failures isn’t impossible if this action leads to major traumas and collapses in the derivatives positions of major money-center banks.

The second link attempts to analyze who the winners and losers are in the current global crisis caused by falling oil prices. I agree with most of its analysis, but the lower oil prices will become a long-term threat to the USA’s entire oil/energy sector if they continue too long. At some point, if prolonged oil prices continue to drop, the USA’s North Dakota oil boom and fracking revolution which have jointly set the USA on the road to energy independence, will both be jeopardized (as the article alludes to). Many American jobs could disappear, many stocks will plummet on the US stock exchanges and a new American recession could be triggered. In the short term, American and western consumers will love the lower gas prices, but that will not last indefinitely.

The last link was sent to me by a reader and I thank him for drawing it to my attention. It offers an excellent analysis of one aspect of the global financial struggle between the two rival blocs which has not been mentioned on global media outlets, but which I think is central to this struggle. The link has several embedded links which are very worthy of your time to open and review as they give expanded analysis of this behind-the-scenes struggle. As a synopsis, the link reports that China, India, Iran and Turkey are some of Russia’s allies in this struggle. I suggest that other major minerals and commodity producers such as Brazil, South Africa, Canada, Australia, and many Latin American, African and Asian nations want the oil price to go up so the prices of their own exported commodities and minerals go back to normal prices as well. The major global financial struggle examined in the last link is the effort by Russia and China to set up a separate and rival clearance center for global banking and trading transactions. Currently, these transactions flow through (and are therefore controlled by) the SWIFT system which is part of the current Babylon the Great system. The links in this article report that Russia had intended to set up a rival global clearinghouse of such transactions in December, but those plans were put on hold by the sudden drop of oil prices (and the Russian ruble). Most interestingly, in light of the thwarted Russian plans for such a rival global exchange, China has invited Russia to participate in a new such global exchange to be opened in Hong Kong–Chinese territory. The link blames the USA for creating the Ukrainian crisis with Russia by overthrowing the elected (and pro-Russian) government of Ukraine and installing a pro-Western regime in a coup. If so, Russia’s Putin took advantage of the situation and seized the Crimea and effective control over several eastern Ukrainian provinces. I’m sure Putin is looking for ways to maneuver this current oil price crisis to his advantage as well. Setting up a rival currency-payments system in Hong Kong would gradually wrest control of global trade from the current Babylon the Great system. I also think that President Obama’s sudden effort to establish diplomatic relations with long-time Russian ally, Cuba, is not a mere coincidence. This is likely an attempt to draw Cuba out of the Russian orbit and transfer it into a new American dependency.

Interestingly, the writer of the last link, Dr. Stephen Jones, refers to the bloc led by the US Fed, Wall Street, etc. as “the Babylonian oligarchs,” which indicates that we are in agreement on the identification of who constitutes “Babylon the Great” in the modern world. However, at the end of his analysis, he asserts that the decline of the modern “Babylonian” alliance will fulfill a prophecy in Jeremiah 19:11 that the city of Jerusalem will fall. I admit I have no idea where he attains to such a conclusion. That is a “leap of logic” in my view and considerably out of context from that prophecy’s proper time setting. Jeremiah prophesied about the impending fall of the ancient city of Jerusalem (and the kingdom of Judah) in his prophecies, which were written about three decades prior to the actual fall of Jerusalem in the sixth century BC at the hands of the ancient Babylonians. There is nothing in Jeremiah 19:11’s prophecy which hints at any latter-day application for that prophecy. Indeed, references to the human-sacrifice rituals of Baal-worship being practiced in ancient Judah at the time of Jeremiah’s prophecy convince me that Jeremiah 19:11’s prophecy was fulfilled in ancient times. However, the fulfillment of Revelation 17-18 is clearly a latter-day prophecy and its fulfillment is drawing nearer.

Ultimately, an alliance of nations and perhaps other non-state entities will form the “seven heads and ten horns” which God has decreed will tear down and collapse the global dominance of the current “Babylon the Great” bloc led by the US Federal Reserve Board, Wall Street and its allies. Babylon the Great’s alliance will not yield power without a titanic fight, and the current oil wars are just one more symptom of that major struggle now being fought mostly out of public sight.

New Information Confirms King David’s Kingdom

December 17th, 2014

A very recent article by a Professor Galil of the University of Haifa has been released which documents that King David did have the empire in the Levant that the Bible ascribes to him. Two links re: this article are below.

Professor Galil’s article states David led a “regional empire from the Sinai Peninsula to the Euphrates.” This is the biblical definition of David’s personally-ruled empire although it is my belief that he dominated a much larger area. The article focuses on King David’s alliance with King Toi of the Aramaean region, which is recorded in the Bible in II Samuel 8:10. However, I’d like to point out one omission and one error in the article cited below. The omission is that the article makes no mention of King David’s very close alliance with King Hiram of Tyre and its affiliated cities of the “Phoenician” Empire (II Samuel 5:11, I Kings 5:1). The alliance between Kings David and Hiram united David’s large land army (which was strengthened by David’s alliance with King Toi) with the Phoenicians who had the largest maritime fleet and navy of the ancient world at that time That alliance between King Hiram was later continued and deepened with King Solomon, David’s son (I Kings 5:1-18, 9:26-27, 10:22-26). This alliance, dominated by King David (and later by King Solomon) dominated all the foreign lands on other continents that were part of the Phoenician Empire.

During David’s reign, the alliance of Kings David, Toi and Hiram was attacked from the east by an alliance of Syrian and Mesopotamian kings (I Chronicles 19). David won that war and his alliance went on to subjugate Assyria and Mesopotamia. As my books point out, secular sources record that Assyria was subjugated during the reigns of Kings David and Solomon by an invading army of Semites who invaded from the west. Some sources call the Semitic invaders “Aramaeans,” however, King Toi’s Arameans were allied to King David’s larger army of Israelites and both were Semites (as were the invaded Assyrians–Genesis 9:21-22). Many of David’s Psalms were inspired by events in his life and Psalm 83 was a Psalm about this war against a great Mesopotamian/Mideast alliance. Psalm 83:8 lists “Asshur” (the Assyrians) as being part of this Mesopotamian alliance and adds that this alliance “helped the children of Lot.” This phrase affirms that the war of I Chronicles 19 inspired Psalm 83 as the war of I Chronicles 19 was started over a pretext where the Mesopotamians and Syrians attacked Israel to, literally, help the children of Lot. I Chronicles 19:1-6 records that the Ammonites (who were “children of Lot”) provoked the war in which the Mesopotamian kings brought their armies to fight the Israelites. The Mesopotamian kings were so confident of victory they came to watch the battle (verse 9) before they had to beat a hasty retreat when David’s forces won the battle and the entire war. You will likely have an impossible time locating records of this Israelite defeat of Assyria in more modern history texts as they have suppressed the fact that the reality of ancient history supports the Bible’s accounts of Israel’s power under Kings David and Solomon. For a full account of this most fascinating ancient war and the secular sources which recorded it, you can find that information by ordering either my E-book, The “Lost” Ten Tribes of Israel…Found! or my printed book, The Origins and Empire of Ancient Israel.

The error in the article cited below is its assertion that when Absalom, David’s son, led a rebellion against David, that “all Israelites rebelled against David.” The Bible records that was not the case. When David fled Jerusalem to seek refuge elsewhere in Israel, he was escorted by a significant contingent of loyal Israelite troops and supporters as well as the non-Israelite bodyguards mentioned in the article. David’s “servants” (that is likely a very broad term) all stayed loyal to him (II Samuel 15:15) as did “all the people with him.” These were all Israelites. II Samuel 15: 24 states that the priest Zadok “and all the Levites with him (emphasis added),” plus the priest Abiathar were loyal to David. It sounds like the entire tribe of Levi may have remained loyal to King David. A wise Israelite counselor named Hushai was with David and proved critical to David’s success (Hushai’s son was later appointed to govern in the tribe of Asher’s territory–I Kings 4:16). Ziba, a servant of King Saul, came with a contingent to meet and support David ( II Samuel 16:1-4). Hushai deceitfully  counseled Absalom to delay his attack against David as David’s men were “mighty men” (this was likely a reference to David’s “mighty men” of II Samuel 23 who were David’s almost superhumanly-powerful special forces troops). Most of these would have been Israelites. Joab, the Israelite general from the tribe of Judah, was over part of David’s forces when Absalom’s forces were defeated (II Samuel 18:2). When David fled eastward, a great man of Gilead (the name of the region of the Israelite tribes living east of the Jordan River) named Barzillai led a contingent of men who rallied to David’s support (II Samuel 17:27-29). These passages confirm many Israelites stayed loyal to King David.

Nevertheless, with that one correction, the article below is a good one which confirms that David was a real king with a real Israelite empire in the distant past.

My thanks to a friend who informed me about this story.
