Headlines for a Day: More Birthpains

Once again, take a step back and look at the number of pertinent stories from around the world:

Earthquake Strikes Japan's Fukushima

The 5.2-magnitude temblor was felt just after 2:00 a.m. local time Wednesday, and was followed later in the day by a second quake of similar strength, 5.3 on the Richter scale, off the Japanese coast about 262 miles (423 kilometers) southwest of Tokyo.The first quake, however, struck uncomfortably close to the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant that had been badly damaged in March, when a much stronger earthquake and tsunami devastated the area.

New powerful and dangerous aftershock creates panic - Eastern Turkey

On 17:55 on October 25,2011 , a powerful 5.7 magnitude earthquake struck the already severely damaged Van – Ercis area.

Massive Tsunami Drill Coincides With Continent Killer Asteroids Close Pass In November

It is well known that earthquake activity has increased ever so rapidly over the past few years/months and now multiple countries are interested in tracking tsunamis in an advanced way.

Does this system test have anything to do with the passing of the massive continent killer asteroid 2005 YU55 that will pass very close to earth possibly striking or dragging debris with it on November 9, 2011, in conjunction with the FEMA/FCC takeover drill?

Palestinian negotiator: Israel must agree to our terms, or no peace talks

Palestinians have said they will not return to the talks until Israel stops all settlement activities in the West Bank and in East Jerusalem, and recognizes the lines which existed before the Six Day War in 1967 as the borders of the future Palestinian state.

"Our demands are very clear and they will not change for any reason," said Shaath, who is also a leading member in President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah movement.

Israel's Energy Discovery: Game-Changer?

One of the most remarkable — perhaps game-changing — developments in the Middle East has been the discovery of massive natural gas deposits in the eastern Mediterranean.

This article asks some interesting and prophetic questions:

Is there a realistic possibility that this could lead to conflict between Israel and Turkey?

The strengthening ties between Israel and Cyprus underpinned by mutual interests in the export of natural gas could make the possibility of regional conflict involving Turkey a realistic one

Egypt and Libya, traditional allies within the Arab world, are both undergoing a revolutionary process.

Against this backdrop Cypriot government officials openly invited the Israeli military to play an active role defending Cypriot interests.

Where do you expect to see this situation heading in the period ahead?

Further discoveries of natural gas, and perhaps even oil reservoirs, near Israel and Cyprus could have far-reaching geopolitical implications, including potential instability. History teaches that the discovery of strategic assets in a disputed territory at a time of regional instability and shifting balance of power is a highly explosive formula.


Take a look at this next article and find the many prophetic implications:

Welcome To The Islamist Middle East And It's Not Going To Be Moderate

..the dominant analysis used by the media, academia, and the talking heads on television has proven dangerously wrong. This includes the ideas that revolutionary Islamism doesn’t exist, cannot be talked about, is not a threat, and that extreme radicals are really moderates.

On February 11, or October 23, or November 28, 2011, the Middle East entered a new era. Whether you date it to the fall of Mubarak, the Tunisian election, or the Egyptian election, what do you think is going to happen in the next half-century in the region? This is now — I call it officially — the Era of Revolutionary Islamism.

To summarize, I will merely say:

Egypt, Gaza Strip, Lebanon, Libya, Syria, Tunisia, and Turkey.

Six countries or entities listed above have come — or are likely to come — under Islamist rule. Each is different.

They aren’t moderate. They’re just pretending to be. And you who fall for it aren’t Middle East experts, competent policymakers, or serious journalists. You’re just pretending to be.

EU Heads Meet Again As Debt Woes Worsen

European leaders including David Cameron are holding an emergency summit in Brussels today to try to thrash out a deal to solve the eurozone's debt crisis.

This year alone, EU heads of government have met 20 times as countries like Greece, Italy and Spain struggle with huge debt and low growth.

The European Council summit will focus on three main pillars: reducing the amount Greece owes to banks and investors, beefing up the bailout fund and pumping more cash into the banks to give them a cushion of capital.

Swedish Analyst Calls For Nordic Union

Swedish historian and analyst Gunnar Wetterberg has suggested that the Nordic states should create their own European Union-style agreement in case the EU itself fails.

The "Nordic Union" would include Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Greenland.

What's interesting to us is that despite the turmoil in the European Union, with this example and the "Eurasian Union" idea floated by Vladimir Putin, it appears that the concept of a trans-cultural and trans-lingual economic union is far from discredited.

Robin Hood Tax: Occupy Movement Now Marching Straight into the Globalist Trap

This one below comes straight from none other than George Soros:

It was inevitable that a movement which has struggled to agree on a manifesto, would in the end, do the bidding of the very elite globalist powers that they are demonstrating against to begin with.

Instead of achieving freedom from Central Bank debt enslavement, naive Occupiers appear to have taken the bait, pulling the mob towards endorsing a global taxation system, and one to be administered… by a brand new global government body.

As the Occupy Movement sets its sights on the upcoming G20 Summit in France on November 3-4, its globalist handlers behind the scenes have succeeded in carefully directing its crowds towards the Holy Grail of all socialist super-states - the celebrity supported, trendy “Robin Hood Tax”...the rallying cry for this globalist wet dream is coming directly from the supposed brain-child of the Occupy Movement, the globalist foundation-funded organization, Ad Busters, quietly shepherding its flock towards one of the biggest revenue spinning and control scams ever conceived.

Former Soviet Citizen Confronts Socialists at OW

This video could also be called "Fantasy Meets Reality".

Below is another video clip worth watching:

The article below is definitely worth reading:

Anatomy of an Occupation

Just a few tidbits from this timely piece:

Alienation and the Search for Meaning: People of all ages, but particularly youth, have an inherent need to find meaning.

With spirituality shunned, people look to the secular religion of progressivism to fill the existential void

By fighting against "The Man," capitalism, and America, the radicals believe that they are good people who live lives of value in an otherwise nihilistic world.

They may have a hunger for God, and yet turn away because believers are mocked.

This sense of alienation from God and country compels many people to look to political movements for their raison d'etre . Being leftists offers the lost souls a sense of belonging and identity.

But, again, this secular society has trashed religion and deconstructed history, the realms of which would explain the way life works. Instead, people on the left live in a fantasy world; and they go ballistic on opponents because truth threatens their dreamworld.

Euro Rescue Fund

Germany’s lower house have finished voting about the EFSF increase.

They have returned to normal business so we have to wait until ‘later’ for the result. As Angela Markel is due to fly to Brussels to give the decision this afternoon, it shouldn’t be a long wait?

Expected Imminently said...

The German Parliament has just passed the increase to the EFSF ahead of the EU Brussels meeting!

Caver said...

EI, yup! Just heard on Glen Beck that they went directly against their expressed population's wishes.

Folk, they ain't even trying to hide it anymore. Its in your face now.

Alice said...

Guess I could look it up, but what is the EFSF? Something financial, I'm gathering...

Seth said...

The European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF) is a special purpose vehicle financed by members of the eurozone to combat the European sovereign debt crisis. It was agreed by the 27 member states[1] of the European Union on 9 May 2010, aiming at preserving financial stability in Europe by providing financial assistance to eurozone states in economic difficulty.[2] The Facility is headquartered in Luxembourg City,[3] and the European Investment Bank provides treasury management services and administrative support to it through a service level contract.[4] The lending capacity of the EFSF is €440 billion, a sum widely seen as insufficient,[5] although proposals exist to leverage this to an effective size of €2 trillion.

Expected Imminently said...

Hello Caver
Yes! Going against the expressed wishes of the population is exactly what David Cameron has done. grrr

The Conservatives vowed to give the U.K. a vote about being in the E.U. during the election campaign then won the majority vote at the last election! Goodygum drops here comes our vote! :)

As it was a 'hung' Parliament, they had to ask either Labour, just ousted, to govern with them, or the Liberals who haven't been in government since the war - for jolly good reason! They chose the Liberals! It is their PC namby pamby views that have wrecked Britain by governing by the back door via votes for favours. :(

I am furious with Cameron - may he be plagued by wedgies forever and get a rash. The toad! :-[

Caver said...

------>Brief derailment

Several of you may remember a few months ago when I reported our dog and the squirrels here starting acting erratically. The dog, a 13 year old cross between border collie and terrier, was just "clingy", like he was scared of something...needing constant reassurance. This went on a while.

Several weeks later the Virginia earthquake hit.

Both he and the squirrels were fine after that.....normal.

He started the "clingy" thing again this morning. No reason, tail tucked down between his legs, head down, not wanting to go out, always coming up for reassurance....just sort of skittish.

<------back to your regularly scheduled discussion.

Expected Imminently said...

Batten down the hatches again caver and make sure Mrs C gets tucked up in bed nice and tight, we don’t want her chucked out and rolling around on a quaking floor!

Watch out for electricity coursing through wet grass when scattering yer nuts - the dog and the squirrels won't like it! Best wear wellies and earth yerself! :)

God bless

Alice said...

Thank you, Seth! Interesting...

Caver, yes, I remember! How about the squirrels right now? Have you noticed anything? And about how many weeks later was the VA earthquake? Does your dog know dutchsinse personally? ;)

Scott said...

I just want to know what a wellie (welly?) is :)

World faiths to attend Vatican ceremony

VATICAN CITY — Two hundred non-Christian religious leaders will join the pope for a ceremony on *OCTOBER 27* that is being boycotted however by the influential Al-Azhar mosque in Cairo, the Vatican said.
Pope Benedict XVI is hosting the event in favour of world peace, which was started by his predecessor John Paul II in Assisi, the birthplace of St Francis, and a variety of faiths will be represented including Islam.

Among the spiritual leaders attending will be Baha'i, Buddhists, Confucianists, Hindus, Jains, Jews, Sikhs, Taoists and Zoroastrians, joining 100 Christian leaders, Vatican officials said at a news conference on Tuesday.

A total of 69 Muslim leaders will also be present from 19 countries including Iran and Saudi Arabia, said Cardinal Peter Kodwo Appiah Turkson, head of the Vatican's Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

But the Grand Imam of the Al-Azhar mosque has refused to attend as the Sunni Islamic centre froze relations with the Vatican after the pope expressed solidarity with Egyptian Copts following a New Year's bomb attack.
Turkson said the meeting would call for "a common path" to peace but added that participants will all be asked to pray in silence during a short procession to the basilica of Assisi and in separate rooms after the ceremony.
The cardinal said the changes had been introduced after complaints following the first such meeting in Assisi in 1986 from traditionalist Catholics, who said THE CEREMONY WAS PROMOTING SYNCRETISM -- the fusion of faiths.

Alice said “My grandpa used to call them his "rubbers"”

Hey ho! You have made me eyes water Alice. We have an entirely different item going by that name. ;-)

We have a sport called 'Welly Wanging', not yet in the Olympic Games. Yokels gather in a field competing to see how far each can chuck one of their Wellies.

A favourite saying used to encourage, e.g. a car to start. is ‘go on, give it some welly’ – i.e. ‘put yer foot down ‘ard’ :D

Seems like yer needs a re-visit to the U.K. as yer eddicashun needs an overhaul.

God bless :)

Scott said...

Heh :)

Just messin with ya Sue - I fully expected DrNo to come in to this with one of his "comments", but since there were no misspellings, maybe not :)

Waterer said...

Hey All,

I don't know if this qualifies for signs in the heavens or not but WOW.
At least it points to the unimaginable beauty that is in heaven.

Seth said...

Ok so I saw something pretty interesting today. Nothing really earth-shattering, but I was doing a little word study on 1 Thes 4:17; and I saw that the word for "clouds" is the same word used for the "cloud by day" that led the Israelites through the desert. I just thought that was interesting and wanted to share.

Alice said...

Sue, thanks for that link on the Harlot! Wow...

And yes, we have that same named "entirely different item" here in the states... When I got older it used to embarrass the heck out of me that he insisted on using that name! But just thinking about it and my grandpa put a big smile on my face today! Thanks for the memories!

Dylan said...

Anyone else find it odd that the day asteroid yu55 passes between the earth and the moon (November 9th) is the day of the "eas test"?

Scott said...

Dylan - yes, this has been noticed by many folks - there have been a few articles written - also wondering about this interesting timing

Caver said...

Dylan, several of us have been clued in on that one. Seems quite the coincidence, don't it.

If you believe in coincidences.

For those of you that asked about the behavior of the dog and squirrels.....the dog calmed down during the day and didn't stay beside my drawing table as he did the last time. As for the squirrels. I just didn't have time to pay them no never mind today.

Oh, as for the question of the timing....last time, the dog started doing the "clingy" thing and acting afraid about 7-10 days before the quake hit in VA.

Unknown said...

The news over the past few months has turned me against coincidences... We are living in a time of prophetic fulfillment and a gathering of evil.

I want a cookie.
