Road Paving II

As stated on so many occasions, we are watching the road being paved directly into the Tribulation. A free, strong America is highly inconsistent with a world governance and a single, world-wide currency, not to mention a world dictator - all of which will occur during the Tribulation. It stands to reason that the strong, free America once known must somehow fall and/or become folded into this world government structure. We are seeing the beginnings of this process:

Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.) has launched an investigation into the Obama-EPA's apparent "crucify them" and “incite fear” strategies targeted at American energy producers. This investigation will look into EPA's actions towards domestic energy production specifically in light of the agency's recent efforts relating to hydraulic fracturing.

Inhofe’s first move was to send a letter of inquiry To EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson asking for answers regarding an emergency order issued by EPA Region 6, which it justified by making unfounded claims that “houses could explode.”

After the region’s EPA administrator incited public fear in interviews by repeatedly warning of the “danger of fires and explosions,” the emergency order was quietly rescinded – but, the damage to public perception had already been done, Inhofe says.

“Parker, County Texas could be the most outrageous of the three cases and it took place in Region 6 where my home state of Oklahoma is located,” Inhofe said today in a Senate speech announcing the investigation.

Inhofe described how EPA Region 6 issued an Emergency Administrative Order overriding Texas state regulators actively investigating the claim hydraulic fracturing was contaminating well water.

“Along with this order, EPA went on a publicity barrage in an attempt to publicize its premature and unjustified conclusions,” Inhofe said.

In interviews, Regional Administrator Al Armendariz “made comments specifically intended to incite fear and sway public option against hydraulic fracturing” in which he cited multiple times a “danger of fire or explosion,” Inhofe said.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) will also investigate any connection of these tactics to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies - just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies - just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.

Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.

In the video, Administrator Armendariz says:

“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:

“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’dfind the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.

“Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”

“It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.

“Not long after Administrator Armendariz made these comments in 2010, EPA targeted US natural gas producers in Pennsylvania, Texas and Wyoming.

“In all three of these cases, EPA initially made headline-grabbing statements either insinuating or proclaiming outright that the use of hydraulic fracturing by American energy producers was the cause of water contamination, but in each case their comments were premature at best – and despite their most valiant efforts, they have been unable to find any sound scientific evidence to make this link.”

That agenda, Inhofe said, is to “incite fear” in the public with unsubstantiated claims and “intimidate” oil and gas companies with threats of unjustified fines and penalties – then, quietly backtrack once the public’s perception has been firmly jaded against oil and natural gas.

The video below is worth watching:

Dredging up Dickensian horrors of child labor, the Obama administration has ordered the Labor Department to apply child labor laws to family farms. The new rules would make it illegal for children to perform a large number of labor tasks that have been performed by farm families for centuries. Traditionally, adults and children alike helped with planting and harvesting in the spring and fall, but the federal government is now determined not only to make this a historical footnote, but a criminal offense.

Under the rules, children under 18 would be prevented by the federal government from working “in the storing, marketing and transporting of farm product raw materials” and prohibited “places of employment would include country grain elevators, grain bins, silos, feed lots, stockyards, livestock exchanges and livestock auctions.”

In addition to making it far more difficult for families to work their farms, the new rules will revoke the government’s approval of safety training and certification taught by independent groups like 4-H and FFA and replace them with a 90-hour federal government training course, theDaily Caller reports.

In other words, the federal government will forcibly insert itself in the business of teaching animal husbandry and crop management, disciplines traditionally passed on by families and local communities.

Government apparatchiks will now oversee the business of local farming the same way Stalin did when he collectivized farms and “socialized” production at gunpoint in the Soviet Union. Resistance by farmers and peasants to Stalin’s efforts resulted in the government cutting off food rations, which resulted in widespread famine (the “terror-famine in Ukraine” killed around 12 million people) and millions were sent to forced labor camps.

The Labor Department’s effort to further erode the family farm falls on the heels of an unconstitutional executive order Obama issued last year establishing so-called rural councils.

“According to this new executive order, the Obama administration plans to stick its itchy little fingers into just about every aspect of rural life,” the Economic Collapse Blog noted at the time. “One of the stated goals of the White House Rural Council is to do the following….”

Coordinate and increase the effectiveness of Federal engagement with rural stakeholders, including agricultural organizations, small businesses, education and training institutions, health-care providers, telecommunications services providers, research and land grant institutions, law enforcement, State, local, and tribal governments, and nongovernmental organizations regarding the needs of rural America.

For the first time in history, Russian and American airborne forces will hold joint drills in the US. The anti-terror exercises scheduled for May 2012 will get off to a flying start with a tactical landing operation and “terrorist” camp raid.

“This is the first time such an event is being held,” Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Col. Aleksandr Kucherenko stressed, announcing the plan. “The Russian airborne will contribute a special task group that will exercise with US special service weapons.”

The drills were arranged by the Russian Airborne Command and a US military delegation in Moscow last December.

Russian soldiers will receive preparatory training in Colorado’s Fort Carson with the US weaponry and equipment they are to use during the operation. The drills include parachuting, operation planning, reconnaissance, assault operations and evacuations by helicopter.

“According to the exercise scenario, soldiers of the two countries will hold a tactical airborne operation, including reconnaissance of an imaginary terrorists' camp and a raid,” Colonel Kucherenko revealed.

The drills will take place between May 24 and 31. But it’s not all work: on May 27, the Russian paratroopers will get a chance to unwind at a baseball game in Colorado Springs.

I'm thinking just how evil the EPA rep's comment was. "Crucify some of them to make an example of them like the Romans did". The Roman's would go into a new conquered community and randomly select innocent people and crucify them just to make the new community more manageble and controlable. That is pure evil and now we ae seeing that kind of thinking now in our government. Surely this will be standard operating procedure in the tribulation period.

This is a complete travisty. Talk about injustice. We know what God thinks of injustice. Just read the book of Amos, especially Amos 5: 21-24.

Come soon Lord Jesus!

Iranian hackers eh!

No doubt their forays into cyber land will flop like their flaccid rocket launches did. Remember em – eh? I do, wot a larf! Round about the time Ahmadinajad stood on the border of Lebanon (prob on an upturned bucket for elevation) and threw stones at Israel – the little rascal. That was around the time he had troubles with worms! Tee hee….

I would like to take a break from prophecy headlines for one moment to wish the nation of Israel a happy 64th birthday. A nation born in a day is one of the great miracles of God. Without it, we wouldn't be talking about end-time prophecy today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ISRAEL>

Oooo boy! What's next? Im not sure I want to know! !Unless of course, its the rapture!

Scott said...

To say that the Rapture won't happen as long as the market is going up is just plain wrong. I'm not going to publish something like that. Find the scriptures that confirm that point of view, and I promise I will post it.

Dutch, joining you in lifting a glass of sparkling cider to Israel's of the biggest miracles I can imagine....their old land, desert that's blooming, their old traditions, their old language...and winning so many wars that were so impossible that no war college will even study them.

Happy Birthday Israel!!!!

Anon, I just wish I felt the same security as you. I don't! Not by any long shot....the vulnerability of so much of our soft belly infrastructure is wide open.

Unorganized individual hackers have penetrated to the deepest levels of many utilities and even some of our defense establishments. The code and methods are out there....for $...and this is going to be a nationally financed and organized effort against not just a target, but a target they hate passionately....the Large Satan.

I wish I had your confidence....but I don't.

Well said scott. Stephen i been meaning to talk to you about this. i totally agree that social moods is a key factor in the stock market but there are others as well. the rapture is a signless even meaning nothing has to precede it. in fact it seems certain passages imply a strong economy at the very start of the tribulation but i ain't certain. we must be careful to make the distinction between the rapture and the day of the Lord (tribulation). Different events. all the info that scott posts are signs of the coming tribulation not the rapture. stephen, you're looking at this from the wrong angle. i don't want you to be caught off gaurd like so many "pastors" and churches are.

Happy Birthday Israel! Btw has anyone heard anything about the CISPA bill that got passed by the House of Representatives?
