In the news:

The first story is just 'breaking':

Palestinian Authority rejects Quartet call to talks

Do you ever notice a trend here?

Over the past 30-40 years, the "PA" rejects every offer. Regardless of the offer. Why? Because such offers demand recognition of Israel's right to exist - something that will never happen. Period.

The Palestinian Authority is unhappy with the Quartet’s latest initiative to launch peace talks with Israel because it is “incomplete,” PA Foreign Minister Riad Malki said on Saturday.

He pointed out that the initiative, which was launched over the weekend after PA President Mahmoud Abbas submitted to UN General-Secretary Ban Ki-moon an official request for full membership in the UN, does not call for a cessation of settlement construction an a pullout to the pre-1967 lines.

The Palestinians, meanwhile, have their eyes set towards Monday, when the UN Security Council is scheduled to discuss Abbas’s application for full membership of a Palestinian state.

Hamas Dismisses Abbas Speech

The Hamas terror group dismissed on Friday Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ UN speech, saying that it failed to address PA Arabs’ aspirations.

Hamas spokesman Fawzi Barhoum told the Bethlehem-based Ma’an news agency that by recognizing Israel and seeking UN membership for a Palestinian state on 22 percent of ‘historic Palestine,’ Abbas “decreased Palestinians’ rights.”

Cyprus-Turkey gas dispute escalates

Turkish vessel the Piri Reis has set sail to drill for gas in waters claimed by EU member Cyprus amid talk of a potential new military confrontation after 35 years of peace.

Referring to related Turkish naval exercises in the area, Greek Cypriot leader Dimitris Christophias told the UN assembly that Turkey's actions are "provocative and a real danger for further complications in the region ... I wish, from this esteemed podium, to condemn this illegal act which constitutes a provocation."

Turkey's decision to confront Cyprus and the EU comes at the same time as its diplomatic row with Israel over Palestine and its bombing campaign against Kurdish separatists in what amounts to a show of strength in the region.

Turkish deputy prime minister Bulent Aric also talked tough with press in Brussels on Thursday.

"Since we are acting within [maritime] law, we can accompany the exploration with our navy and our air force. We don't have the idea of fighting. We are just defending our rights," he said.

Meanwhile, in the face of Turkey provoking both Cyprus and Israel, the U.S. decided to help arm Turkey (yes, the same Turkey of the Gog-MaGog alliance)...Only in bizarro world:

Erdogan: US to provide drones to Turkey

The United States has agreed in principle to deploy US Predator drones on Turkish soil to aid in the fight against Kurdish separatist rebels, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan said.

Of course Turkey can and will use these drones against both Cyprus and Israel. Duh.

Erdogan, speaking to reporters in New York on Friday where he attended a UN General Assembly, said Turkey has offered to buy or lease the drones and that details are being worked out.

Unbelievable. Just when Turkey's anti-Israeli rhetoric is at an all time high, the U.S. decides to contribute to their arms build-up.

Muslim nations criticize Israel over nukes

Six weeks to save the euro

World leaders were warned last night that they have just six weeks to save the euro from collapse.

On another day of gathering economic gloom, George Osborne savaged eurozone leaders for failing to get a grip on their towering debts.

The Chancellor set a deadline of six weeks – when leaders of the G20 group of leading countries will meet for crunch talks in France – for action.

Global economy pushed to the brink

Time is running out to find a solution to the eurozone crisis and prevent another global recession, finance ministers warned on Friday

Financial markets experienced another day of intense volatility as investors struggled to interpret an emergency statement from the Group of 20 leading economies, which met on the sidelines of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank meetings in Washington.

Putin to return as Russian president

Surprise, surprise. Who would have ever predicted this one?

Russia’s Prime Minister Vladimir Putin is now certain to return to his former post as president next year after President Dmitry Medvedev pledged to support him in elections next March.

The announcement, at the annual conference of United Russia, the hegemonic political party that controls two-thirds of Russia’s parliament, puts to rest intrigue surrounding the “2012 Problem” which had divided observers as to whether Putin would return to the presidency or remain as prime minister.

Below are two articles pertaining to Agenda 21. The first, revealing our future and the second revealing the present. Read it and weep for the loss of freedom:

United Nations Agenda 21 Tenements in Eastern Europe

Romania was allowed to join the EU on January 1, 2007. Since then, the government has engaged in a policy of adhering to the rules and regulations established by the EU, including Agenda 21 mandates.

My aunt’s apartment was in such a dilapidated tenement, however, every apartment was connected to a brand-new smart meter, all encased together in a shadow box. When I inquired, I was told that the funds for the smart meters came from the European Union.

Well, just read the rest. It is both sad and disheartening, and a bleak view of our future.

We're already seeing the movement's beginnings in the U.S.:

EPA to property owner: 'Your land is our land'

Just imagine. You want to build a home, so you buy a $23,000 piece of land in a residential subdivision in your hometown and get started. The government then tells you to stop, threatens you with $40 million in fines and is not kidding.

That's the case now before the U.S. Supreme Court, with briefs being filed today by the Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of a Priest Lake, Idaho, family, Chantell and Mike Sackett.

Attorney Damien Schiff, who will be arguing before the high court in the case, said it's simply a case of a government run amok, and it poses a potential threat to perhaps not every landowner across the nation, but untold millions.

Come quickly Lord.

Regarding turkey: so the USA and NATO helps rebels overthrow dictators, but in turkey theyre helping to suppress a rebellion? Odd

gearedup2go said...

It was the Israelis who developed drone technology. And now Turkey will be using it against the Israelis. Doh!

Robin said...

Dylan, we did nothing to assist the Iranians when they attempted a revolution of their own and frankly, a good case could be made that it would be in America's best interest to get rid of Ahmadinejad and company.  US Foreign Policy is a dichotomy, a mishmash of gibberish . . .sending conflicting messages that's destined to be our ruination.  

Btw, anyone else catch this from Ahmadinejad's UN speech on Wednesday?
From Ahmadinejad's speech to the UN this past Wednesday: “A future that will be built when humanity initiates to trend the path of the divine prophets and the righteous under the leadership of Imam al-Mahdi, the Ultimate Savior of mankind and the inheritor to all divine messengers and leaders and to the pure generation of our great Prophet. The creation of a supreme and ideal society with the arrival of a perfect human being who is a true and sincere lover of all human beings, is the guaranteed promise of Allah. He will come alongside with Jesus Christ to lead the freedom and justice lovers to eradicate tyranny and discrimination, and promote knowledge, peace, justice freedom and love across the world. He will present to every single individual all the beauties of the world and all good things which bring happiness for humankind.”

. . .and on another front, Putin is on the rise once again.  Now HE'S someone I could completely see in the AC role.

gearedup2go said...

Robin, Joel Rosenberg once said that Putin is very Gog-esque. He is definitely one to watch as the conflict evolves in the ME.

Scott said...

Geared - I agree with Joel R on Putin...He is VERY "Gog-esque".....I've always felt that way

WVBORN56 said...

So if Putin is Gog does that mean the Ezekiel war could not start until he is in power next year? Thoughts?

Heading out the door to the WVU-LSU game,8:00PM ABC for those who are also football fans.

Scott said...

Actually, he never lost power. He essentially transferred his powers to the "PM" position that he now holds. The "president" position is more of a figurehead. WHen Putin becomes president again, he'll just transfer the powers back again. Its all a bait and switch shell game really. He's had power all along. This way, he can still adhere to their laws while maintaining power all along ===> something else that had been very "gog-esque".

Seth said...

All I can say is that I would not be surprised at ALL if we're gone by this time next week (Yom Teruah and all on Wed/Thu/Fri). Come soon, Lord Jesus.

Have you noticed how much Putin resembles Smeagol in Lord of the Rings? Just sayin'...

A couple of weeks ago someone from this blog recommended The Fuel Project's "Know your Enemy" videos on You Tube. (The Fuel Project also has a Facebook page.) These are excellent. There are about 85 short videos , usually from about 5 to 10 minutes, so easy to view if you only have a little time. I started skipping around, and am now settled in, viewing them in order, starting with the initial rebellion in the Garden. They follow the Bibical story and include much scripture . Much of what you bloggers write about are included in these videos. Thank you to whomever recommended them initially ! Diane

Wow! We just saw the movie, "Contagion" and I could see how easily a plague could paralyze the USA and the entire world! The extensive traveling done today (especially by air) was unimagineable not too many years ago! Diane (again)

Robin said...


I'm curious about your theory that the AC will be revealed before the rapture. Could you please cite the Biblical verses you're basing that on?

Scott said...

We've been around and around on this...DrNo will show up before long and post several links. Stephen is a brother in Christ, but I'm to the point of deleting posts on the topic simply because it has become so redundant (not yours! ) - Someone posted an excellent video clip by Hal Lindsey that should put the issue to rest. God Bless

DrNofog said...

Oh, nice one Scott!!
You'd just as soon delete the posts...then, on 2nd thot, opt to shift it onto my overloaded shoulders!?!

Somehow, it all has the flavor of something outta Proverbs...akin to "a continual dripping in a very rainy day...", but I have broad shoulders so I'll just struggle wif it...

Stephen does not debate anything because he can't!

In all of his posts, going back to Dec., he has NEVER given a single Scripture for how & where he got confused with "The Day of the LORD [YHVH]" as being the Rapture.

The OT has numerous Scriptures that mention "the day of the LORD", "the great and terrible day of the LORD", "the day of the LORD is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?", and they are ALL ATTACHED to a VERY SPECIFIC, KNOWN time frame; the time of "Jacob's Trouble", AKA Daniel's 70th 'week', the great Tribulation period!

The Rapture, on the other hand, is a mystery event hidden from the OT understanding, and has ABSOLUTELY NO events or time frame attached to it [such as the revealing of the A/C]!

He quotes 2 Thessalonians 2 and flatly states repeatedly: "Paul's words are VERY CLEAR", "I will not go against what Paul says", "I WILL NOT CHANGE MY MIND", and again, all w/o ever explaining his twist on "The Day of the LORD" = Rapture!

Or to use one of Scott's expressions:

In the Big Book of Cliches, under "Strong Opinions", it says: Some people's minds are like concrete...thoroughly mixed and well set...
...and it has u-no-whos pic next 2 it.

[Funny how "coincidences" work... I just happened to looking back for some past info, and I ran across this from Feb.2010:

"Scott said...

Sigh.....I think I'll leave this one up.

I can feel the love ! :)"

Anon-Diane-ymous said... "Wow! We just saw the movie, "Contagion"..."

Yes, that was the youtube movie 'preview' link following this comment: "...the Illuminati, Albert Pike, and especially how 'they' like to use Hollywood to 'telegraph' what they're planning for us..."

DrNofog said...

Hmmmm, that has a nice ring to it.

Diane said...

Ok, DrNo, got it , thanks .

Scott said...

DrNo is obviously seeking a quote him, quoting me.....sigh.......

Misty said...

May I suggest you double his pay which will still be 0. :D

Scott said...

Yea, but that doesn't include bonus and stock options :)

Misty said...

Oh well stock options...may I apply for a position? lol

Scott said...

The only problem is, they aren't worth much :)

Gearedup...too funny...smeagol the ultimate insult! :)

Scott good thought on Putin and his position of power. I just thought he might need the official title to be considered Gog?

Scott said...

WV - The titles have been made arbitrary by Putin himself - but having said that, he'll be back officially as "President" soon anyway, so he'll have both the title and the power behind it. He's a scary person IMO for a variety of reasons. Definitely fits the profile.

DrNofog said...

Hey!! I'm going to the Hague now for some 'justice'!

I put forth an honest effort in all of the above and y'all are having waaaay too much fun at my expense!!

I'm gonna demand a sanctioned 'corridor' right thru the middle of Scott's property!

Scott said...

You'll never find it DrNo - I'm safely hidden away in the country - far from human view..Even your intelligence gathering can't find me!
