Showdown Looming Between Putin And Netanyahu

More and more, recent news are lining up exactly as we would expect with the approaching wars of Isaiah 17 and Ezekiel 38-39. The recent war of words and threats between Putin and Netanyahu underscore this premise:

Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Netanyahu ended their three-hour meeting in Sochi Tuesday, May 14, at loggerheads on Syria. In fact, Putin warned his guest that Israel and its army, the IDF, were heading for war with Syria in which Russia might well be involved – and not just through the advanced S-300 anti-air missiles supplied to the Assad government.

 The case Netanyahu and Military Intelligence chief Maj. Gen. Aviv Kochavi put before Putin and Russian foreign intelligence chief, SVR Director Mikhail Fradkov, fell on deaf ears.

They found the Russian leader further infuriated by the docking that day at Israel’s Red Sea port of Eilat of the USS Kearsarge, carrying 1,800 marines and a consignment of 20 V-22 Osprey helicopters which US Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel had promised to supply to Israel during his April visit.

The Israeli prime minister countered with a warning that Israel would continue to strike advanced weapons in Syria that were destined for Hizballah. And if President Bashar Assad hit back for Israel’s May 5 bombardment of weapons stores on Mount Qassioun near Damascus, Israel would intensify its bombardments of Syrian military targets and weapons until Assad was left to fight off rebel assaults empty-handed.

Wednesday, the day after Netanyahu’s trip to Sochi, Jibril’s group let loose with mortar fire on the Israeli Mt. Hermon ski site, firing from a Syrian army position.

Israeli military sources confirmed later that these were no stray shells from a Syrian-army-rebel battle as in former cases, but a deliberate attack. In Jerusalem, it was taken as a direct consequence of Moscow’s account to Assad of the conversation between the Russian and Israeli leaders. They concluded that Assad took it for granted that he was now at liberty to go on the offensive against Israel.

Wednesday night, Netanyahu’s office reacted to this deterioration with a swift and strong warning.
Israeli media were informed bluntly that if the Assad chose to retaliate for Israel’s air strikes, he would be removed from power.

That same night, “a senior Israeli official” contacted The New York Times with a more detailed warning quoted by the paper: "If Syrian President Assad reacts by attacking Israel, or tries to strike Israel through his terrorist proxies, he will risk forfeiting his regime, for Israel will retaliate."
Within hours, early Thursday morning, May 16, Jerusalem had its answer from Damascus.

A Palestinian group calling itself “Martyrs of the Abdel Qader al-Husseini Brigades” (named for the commander of a Palestinian force fighting Israel in its 1948 War of Independence) claimed responsibility for the "rockets" aimed at an Israeli military observation post in the Golan Heights. They were fired in honor of Nakba Day, said the statement released in Damascus "We are not celebrating but avenging the blood of our martyrs."

Palestinian terrorist groups habitually use made-up names when claiming attacks, a practice often followed by al Qaeda, but this one was easily identified by Israel and taken to mean that Assad had begun using what the Israeli official referred to in The New York Times as "his terrorist proxies."

Depending on the next move decided on by Prime Minister Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz, this incident could mark the tipping-point of a slide towards a war confrontation against Israel by Syria, Hizballah and other Assad proxies.

Lawless government out of control

What the IRS scandal really proves is that big government is completely out of control. Give an unelected group a bureaucrats enough power -- the IRS is run by appointees who don't answer to voters -- and they will sooner or later construct fiefdoms of corruption and criminality.

This is a universal law of bureaucracy. What the IRS did to conservative groups, the FDA is routinely doing to natural products manufacturers and supplement companies. It's what the DEA is doing to medical marijuana dispensaries and what the FTC is doing to religious ministries that also happen to sell herbs for cancer.

All bureaucracies become criminal mobs if given enough time and power. This is a screaming red flag with a clear message: Government is TOO BIG, too complex, too powerful and is operating far outside its limits of power.

Government is the biggest threat to freedom and justice in America today.

In fact, this IRS criminality has been going on since at least 2010, and the agency has been getting away with it until just now when a few facts just happen to come to light. No one knows just how many people have been threatened and intimidated, mobster-style, by the IRS which focused its efforts on intimidating those who were speaking out against Obama. Technically, this behavior by the IRS calls into question the validity of the entire 2012 presidential election
. Had the IRS not been engaged in overtly criminal activity to suppress the free speech of non-profits critical of big government, the election may have very well turned out differently.

Government bureaucracies answer to no one

What's even more frightening in all this is that government bureaucracies -- FDA, IRS, DEA, FTC, etc. -- ultimately answer to no one. And when they break the laws, nobody is held responsible and no one goes to jail.

If you or I commit felony crimes and engage in intimidation of fellow citizens in order to silence their speech and violate their civil rights, we will get drawn up on felony charges by the feds. But when the feds do it, the crimes are ignored.

No wonder everyone is so completely fed up with the IRS and the Obama administration. Across the board, republicans and democrats alike feel outrage at the realization that the Obama government is a rogue criminal mob operating far outside the bounds of law and the constitutional limits of government. There is nothing this government cannot and will not do to stay in power and destroy its critics, including threatening them with IRS attacks if they speak out against Obama.

This is how tyrannies come into being. As Michael Gerson writes in the Washington Post:

In each recent case, government used power in ways that were insular, highly politicized and intimidating. And however individual responsibility is eventually assigned, these attributes are not aberrations in the Obama era. The administration tends to view its actions as above scrutiny and its opponents as beneath contempt.
The result is a paradox. As the ambitions of government in the Obama era have expanded, respect for the institution of government has reached new lows. These scandals add another layer of cynicism. And the practical political effects are very real. Who is more likely this month than last to trust the federal government with the implementation of Obamacare (in part by the IRS), the enforcement of new gun-control laws or the securing of the southern border?

IRS behavior proves conspiracy theorists right

Another interesting realization in all this concerns those of us who have been warning about the runaway criminality of the Obama administration for the last several years. Websites and (as well as others) have been blowing the whistle on the criminality of Eric Holder and the Justice Department, which ran Operation Fast and Furious(smuggling guns into Mexico).

We've been warning about the selective prosecution of whistleblowers, the rise of government tyranny, government selling out to global banksters and the attempts to intimidate critics of government into silence. All this time, we've been labeled "conspiracy theorists" by the mainstream media, which somehow believes there are no such things as conspiracies.

Until now. Suddenly the Associated Press has its phone records seized by the Justice Department in an unlawful attempt to identify the AP's whistleblower sources who are exposing the criminality of the government itself. The AP has been crying foul over it, taking on almost the exact same kind of tone that InfoWars and NaturalNews have been publishing for years while being accused of "anti-government" leanings. Suddenly the Associated Press is technically the newest "anti-government" group because it's criticizing the criminality of government gone bad, too. (Yes, in America anyone who points out the criminality of government is instantly labeled "anti-government.")

Now the world is waking up and realizing the conspiracy theorists were right all along. The Obama administration really is a criminal enterprise run by genuine mobsters and crooks. America really is "occupied" by an enemy force that respects no law and uses its power to dominate and intimidate the people rather than serving them.

We have crossed the Rubicon of criminal government. And the only way to restore liberty at this point is to indict and prosecute the criminals responsible, all the way up the chain as high as it leads.

Because a government that would use the IRS as a political weapon of intimidation would do anything. It makes you think twice about everything you've heard on FEMA camps, martial law, false flag attacks, population reduction, fluoride and vaccines, doesn't it? It forces us all the ask the question: Is there any limit to how far the Obama administration will go to destroy opposition to its agenda of a big government takeover of everything?

The Liberty Counsel vs. Obama DOJ at Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, VA today may well be the one great last chance to repeal the Obamacare monstrosity looming to take full affect next January... maybe with all this IRS scandal coming to light right now, there's going to be a real chance this healthcare law will be seen for what it really is... and finally thrown out on its ear! Please pray for Liberty Counsel's success where it failed before to go up against such a formidable opponent!

Hello all . . .I'm in Jerusalem with Arnold Fruchtenbaum's Study Tour. We went to the Temple Mount today . . .and while there, about 15 yards away, a Jewish tour came tour group came through. Well, that set off a loud shouting match. I didn't see any physical violence, but afterwards, we went on to the Via Delarosa. Apparently, shortly after we'd left the immediate vicinity beyond the Lion's Gate, IDF closed the mount to all Jews and Tourists until further notice.

And that's how this trip has been since we left home. Everything has fallen into place. We nearly missed the El Al flight because NY traffic was more than twice as bad when we were going from Newark to JFK. My mother in Law's flight was 50 minutes early or we would have. So I still believe God has something he wants to show one if us or both. Surely can feel His presence here . . .
