The speed with which things are happening now is stunning. As the birth pains define this generation, the pregnant patient is now being wheeled into the delivery room. There can be no doubting this. A single day of news/headlines makes this case abundantly clear.
We are approaching the final days of this generation at breakneck speed, which means the Tribulation is rapidly approaching.
A wedding date is approaching - it is time to prepare spiritually - through prayer - praise - worship and any kind of spiritual cleansing that is possible. Jesus emphatically gave us the warning signs and they are all here - but not only are they here, they are increasing in a dramatic way. It has gotten to the point where you don't have to dig for the news, they are everywhere, even now in the MSM.
Another note worth mentioning - and if you haven't noticed this yet, you aren't looking....With almost every rock you dare turn over these days, you will find George Soros or Zeb Brzezinski under it - arguably two of the most evil persons on this planet today - in keeping with the anti-christs mentioned in 1 John
Paradoxically, these are the best of times for a Christian - what is coming for us is glorious and as the apostle Paul stated:
(Emphasis in red is mine)
6 So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep, but let us be awake and sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk, get drunk at night. 8 But since we belong to the day, let us be sober, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 9 For God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ. 10 He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him. 11 Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.
(1 Thessalonians 5)
15 Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[d] is not in them. 16 For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh,the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. 17 The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.
20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth.[e]21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.
4 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. 2 This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 3 but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.
19 We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one. 20 We know also that the Son of God has come and has given us understanding, so that we may know him who is true. And we are in him who is true by being in his Son Jesus Christ. He is the true God and eternal life.
A 5.2-magnitude earthquake jolted Southern California early Friday, prompting some to wonder whether something much stronger is coming.
The moderate quake occurred about 13 miles from Borrego Springs, a community in the eastern part of San Diego County, just after 1 am PT, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
In March, geologist Julian C. Lozos discovered that the San Andreas and the San Jacinto faults may have ruptured together about 200 years ago, creating an earthquake that was felt from north of Los Angeles to San Diego, based on historical data captured by missionaries in those areas.
In his report, he said it may be likely that this situation could happen again in the future.
"If there's a joint rupture it will create a larger earthquake, especially if it starts on the San Jacinto," Lozos told CNN back in March. "Say you're stressed out and you snap. You might then stress out your friend too. That's that same way faults work. They stress each other out."
The parachutes slowly float down from Chinook helicopters, first carrying boxes of supplies and then the paratroopers who set up a field operations center as part of a readiness drill for a megaquake and tsunami.
Chief Warrant Officer James Pierce packed up his parachute and grabbed his gear shortly after hitting the ground Thursday at Sanderson Field, an airfield in the small city of Shelton on the west side of Puget Sound.
Parachuting in may be the only option for some responders following a massive earthquake, especially to get to remote locations that are rendered undriveable.
"It's a good, effective way to get gear to the ground," Pierce said.
Thursday's exercise was part of a four-day event that ends Friday, called Cascadia Rising, built around the premise of a 9.0 magnitude earthquake 95 miles off the coast of Oregon that results in a tsunami. Both events would likely destroy buildings, roads and buildings and disrupt communications.
"After a Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake, we fully anticipate that roads are going to be cut off, bridges are going to be down and we're going to have isolated pockets of people that are going to need some help and support," said Major General Bret Daugherty, commander of the Washington National Guard.
Back on June 5th, Susan Duclos broke a story to the world on ANP in which she told us that many Americans across the country were unable to gain access to any funds on their government provided ‘Electronic Benefit Transfer’ (EBT) cards, thus warning that we were witnessing more signs of the very system itself falling apart. Many Americans who had already ‘fallen through the cracks of this broken system’ were seeing their situations deteriorating as they were unable to buy groceries for their families. As we learn below, things have not improved for many Americans. We also take a look below at facts that prove that many ‘illegal aliens’ and refugees coming into the country are taken much better care of than the American citizens who have payed into this system for much of their lives.
Another visit to Down Detector status watch for SNAP/EBT cards shows that not only are SOME Americans still not getting their EBT funds but also gives us a look into the minds of a rapidly awakening American public, many who have left comments on that website about the possibility of forthcoming martial law in America due to economic collapse as well as many others offering very good ‘prepper’ advice to others who may have never heard of prepping beyond cable TV. We have sprinkled some of those eye-opening comments throughout this article. In the first video below our videographer looks at this ongoing SNAP/EBT problem and asks if this is the beginning of widespread chaos.
We also take a look below at this EBT/SNAP story getting picked up across the alternative media including both Infowars, who asked if Barack Obama is funneling illegal aliens into SNAP/EBT to ‘overwhelm the system,’ as well as this story from Zero Hedge. We must keep in mind, though, that very little has been said about this in the mainstream media, leading us to believe that this is another regional issue showing major cracks in the system and possibly another ‘beta test’ of how people might react, though not a full-scale, countrywide EBT/SNAP failure…..yet. If this was nationwide at this moment, more than 8 days later, we’d surely be hearing about massive unrest in the streets as we all know only 9 meals stand between civilization and anarchy. One excellent comment from a ‘non-conspiracy theorist’.
Have Americans finally ‘figured it out’? A look at a few more of the comments from Down Detector show either that Americans are awakening to staged collapse or a whole bunch of alternative news readers flooded the Down Detector comment section for SNAP/EBT hoping to awaken more lost souls. A few of the other comments show that an awful lot of people believe that America is rapidly sleepwalking towards a dictatorial totalitarian state. We also see below these comments that many are equating what’s happening now in Venezuela as being a strong possibility of coming to America.
On the eve of World War II the United States was still mired in the Great Depression and found itself facing war on two fronts with Japan and Germany. However bleak the outlook, it was nothing compared to the outlook today.
Has anyone in Washington, the presstitute Western media, the EU, or NATO ever considered the consequences of constant military and propaganda provocations against Russia? Is there anyone in any responsible position anywhere in the Western world who has enough sense to ask: “What if the Russians believe us? What if we convince Russia that we are going to attack her?”
The same can be asked about China.
The recklessness of the White House Fool and the media whores has gone far beyond mere danger.What do the Russians think when they see that the Democratic Party intends to elect Hillary Clinton president of the US? Hillary is a person so crazed that she declared the president of Russia to be “the new Hitler” and organized through her underling, neocon monster Victoria Nuland, the overthrow of the democratically elected government of Ukraine. Nuland installed Washington’s puppet government in a former Russian province that until about 20 years ago was part of Russia for centuries.
Ever since Russia stood up to Obama over Syria, the Russians have been experiencing hostile propaganda and military operations on their borders. These provocations are justified by Washington and its NATO vassals as a response to “Russian aggression.” Russian aggression consists of nothing but obviously false assertions that Russia is about to invade the Baltics, Poland, and Romania and recreate the Soviet Empire, the Eastern European part of which, together with the former Russian provinces of Georgia and Ukraine, now belong to the American Empire.
The Russians know that the propaganda about “Russian aggression” is a lie. What is the purpose of the lie other than to prepare the Western peoples for war with Russia?
There is no other explanation.
Even morons such as Obama, Merkel, Hollande, and Cameron should be capable of understanding that it is extremely dangerous to convince a major military power that you are going to attack. To simultaneously also convince China doubles the danger.
Clearly, the West is incapable of producing leadership capable of preserving life on earth.
What can be done when the entire West demonstrates a death wish for Planet Earth?
Until the criminal regimes of Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama, American presidents from John F. Kennedy forward worked to reduce tensions with the Soviets. Kennedy worked with Khrushchev to reduce tensions caused by US missiles in Turkey and Soviet missiles in Cuba. President Nixon negotiated SALT I (the Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty) and the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty. President Carter negotiated SALT II, which was never ratified by the US Senate but was observed by the executive branch. President Reagan negotiated with Soviet leader Gorbachev the end of the Cold War. President George H.W. Bush in exchange for Gorbachev’s agreement to the reunification of Germany promised that NATO would not move one inch to the East.
A reader forwarded to me Brzezinski’s latest missive, where he attempts to play the grand chess master who thinks he is a move or two ahead of the competition. But he is not. Sadly Ziggy is behind the curve, not being able to give up his old ways, and yet wanting to play the old wise man passing his wisdom on to the rest us, who frankly are tired of his endless machinations.
His latest article for The American Interest is entitled, Strategic vision toward a global realignment, a typical Ziggy topic. Step number one in Intel analysis would be to see who Ziggy is hanging out with at American Interest, and a surprise it was; just three others, Eliot Cohen, Yoshihiro Fukuyama, and for some old world flavor, Josef Joffe, publisher of Die Zeit, all old Brzezinski friends.
In short, it’s a NeoCon mob, although Fukuyama has “distanced himself” from that old gang, but not really. Eliot Cohen was co-founder of the Project for a New American Century, the flagship for the post-Cold War academics wanting to lead the charge to take over the planet, and providing some intellectual cover for it all. Frankly, for what these four have contributed to the world, they could be the reincarnation of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
These fellas are about as independent as my three cats who never forget who feeds them. When you look at the war crowd’s publishing credentials, you see the usual NeoCon echo chamber, where positions that are being driven by special interests are given a consensus robe to wear, what the smart folks think. And I have to say this works, otherwise they would not keep doing it.
But I must share with you that putting on theatrical, “independent” debates is an important intelligence operation; and most countries who can invest in these traveling medicine man shows do so. Public opinion is a way too dangerous thing to leave in the hands of the public.
We all live in an age now, even in so called “democratic” countries, where the public is treated as a potential enemy by government, and is then is subject to being led down the correct path. And all the classic war time psychological operational tools are fair game for bringing in the sheep.
Ziggy loves to write his “how I view the world” pieces using a point numbering format, like you would use when dealing with children where you would be testing them afterwards on the material. Ziggy delivers like God giving the ten commandments to Moses; in this case the “basic truths” or verities, a term no one uses in English anymore, other than poetry.
He starts out with his favorite “emerging redistribution of global political power” theme that he loves, as it provides endless writing material. But incredibly, he gives a twist by anchoring it with “the violent political awakening in the Middle East”… signaling the coming of a new global realignment.
He is pitching this as a new thing, despite that the terror-driven conflicts we see going on now were birthed on Ziggy’s watch during the Jimmy Carter years, when the US and Saudi Arabia teamed up to unleash Wahhabism, via the Mujahedeen in Afghanistan acting as cannon fodder troops to pull a Vietnam number on Russia.
Dear Ziggy, this cheap shot went over like a lead balloon. Your name is on the virtual tombstones of those dead Afghans, and you have bragged in your books about how cool an idea it was to lead the Russians to defeat in a land that had swallowed British armies before.
Ziggy is privy to some high Intel briefings. He has to know that US, British, French, Israeli, Turkish, German, Saudi and some of the other Gulf State Intel agencies have been the main state-sponsors of terror in the regions, a carryover from the Cold War which the longest serving Secretary of Defense Robert McNamara once described as “anything but cold”.
Ziggy omits acknowledging that Putin has been calling for a full multinational real war on terror, and has been generally ignored by the US, as it has even refused to coordinate anti-terrorism efforts in Syria.
In another low blow, Brzezinski tries to smear Russia using the worn out claim that if Russia stopped invading its neighbors, Ukraine, Georgia, Crimea, even including the Baltic States, that it would have more time to fight terrorism. He is diverting attention from the tremendous Russian counter terrorism success in Syria which exposed the US coalition’s make believe effort.
He does on to give China a diplomatic spanking for not getting involved militarily in fighting terrorism in other countries, when it has a long history and a key plank of its foreign policy, of not getting involved in the domestic affairs of other countries, other than economically. He also poses the American partner role of China to help contain global terror, but of course as a junior partner.
But why would China want to be partners with one of the state sponsors of terror, to help provide them cover? Russia might be willing to do it, even if some state-sponsored terrorism continues, as long the growing cancerous independent version can be curtailed.
Some of our current terrorism scourge has seen spawned from Brzezinski’s early earlier Muslim terrorism efforts, such as the Chechens, who still have US contractor-supported training bases in the Pankisi Gorge area of the Republic of Georgia, a rather overt US terrorism effort on Russia’s border, not to mention the bio-weapons laboratory that was in Tbilisi.
The new geopolitical framework that Brzezinski is calling for has already been taking place and West is going to war against it with NATO expansion, Obama’s Asian Pivot, and rearming Japan, and trade wars. That framework is a multipolar one that is not a fake Western group construct with the US as the plantation owner and few major European states as overseers.
To understand the scale of this transformation, the reasons behind it and the trajectory it is likely to take, it is necessary to step back to see the bigger strategic picture. What we are seeing today are the results of a series of policies and reforms that were instigated initially in the wake of the Russo-Georgia war in 2008 and subsequently accelerated in the wake of the so-called Arab Spring.
These policies were intended to reinvigorate the defense industry and revamp the armed forces. In 2010, the Russian leadership committed $640 billion to a decade-long transformation process that would result in recruiting half a million contract soldiers and ensuring that at least 70 percent of military equipment is modern, including the procurement of thousands of pieces of high performance and heavy equipment, such as tanks, artillery, military aircraft and naval vessels.
At the same time, the Russian armed forces and internal security services have taken part in thousands of tactical, operational and strategic exercises. Over the last five years, these exercises have become significantly larger and more sophisticated, designed to test the system in place, particularly coordination between ministries and federal, regional and local authorities.
These are impressive figures. But they also represent emergency measures. On one hand, they reflect Moscow’s concern about Russia’s ability to cope with an increasingly unstable and threatening environment. In the government’s view, Russia is surrounded by an arc of crisis, stretching almost all the way around Russia, from Ukraine to the South China Sea. At the same time, the Russian authorities are concerned by threats of international terrorism, the spread of regional instability as a result of the ongoing conflicts in the Middle East, and particularly by the prospect of US-led color revolutions not only in the former Soviet space, but even in Russia itself.
What we see today, therefore, is just part of a bigger picture, in which Russia is halfway through a sustained transformation process.
The Obama Administration has argued that there is no better alternative to its controversial nuclear agreement with Iran. But rather than cutting off all paths to a nuclear weapon, as the Administration initially promised, the so-called Vienna Agreement only temporarily slows down Iran’s progress toward a nuclear weapons capability and, in fact, protects the regime’s nuclear infrastructure and research and development, potentially allowing Iran to become a more robust threshold nuclear breakout state. A credible alternative to this dangerous deal with Iran is to maintain U.S. and U.N. sanctions (or unilateral U.S. sanctions if necessary), keep the military option on the table, and work with partners in the Middle East to force Tehran to accept much tighter restrictions on its nuclear plans.
Iran’s nuclear expansion will be paid for with the huge financial windfall, estimated at up to $150 billion, which the regime will pocket in sanctions relief when its frozen assets are released, with tens of billions more dollars coming from expanded oil revenues after sanctions are ended. This enormous signing bonus also will be used to strengthen the ayatollahs’ brutal police state, build up its conventional military and ballistic missile forces, and escalate its export of terrorism and subversion.
Scott, the best news you posted in this list of disturbing and escalating events was that of our approaching wedding date. Our Blessed Hope appears just around the corner. Maranatha!
Amen Brother! We have the blessed hope and nothing will take that away
