In Europe, when it gets serious, you have to lie... at least if you are an unelected bureaucrat like Jean-Claude Juncker. In Russia, however, when it gets serious, attention immediately turns to the children.
Which is why we read a report in Russian website Znak published Tuesday, according to which Russian state officials and government workers were told to bring back their children studying abroad immediately, even if means cutting their education short and not waiting until the end of the school year, and re-enroll them in Russian schools, with some concern.
The article adds that if the parents of these same officials also live abroad "for some reason", and have not lost their Russian citizenship, should also be returned to the motherland. Znak cited five administration officials as the source of the report.
The "recommendation" applies to all: from the administration staff, to regional administratiors, to lawmakers of all levels. Employees of public corporations are also subject to the ordinance. One of the sources said that anyone who fails to act, will find such non-compliance to be a "complicating factor in the furtherance of their public sector career." He added that he was aware of several such cases in recent months.
It appears that the underlying reason behind the command is that the Russian government is concerned about the optics of having children of the Russian political elite being educated abroad, while their parents appear on television talking about patriotism and being "surrounded by enemies."
"On the one hand, this is all part of a package of measures to prepare the elites for some 'big war' even if it is rather conditional, on the other hand - this is another blow to the unity of President Putin with his own elite" Belkovsky said. He adds that the Western sanctions launcedh in March 2014, had sought to drive a wedge between Putin and elites. In response, the Kremlin began to act precisely according to the logic of these sanctions. "But while a ban for having assets in the West is one thing, and understanable, when it comes to a ban for offshore health and education services, the blowback will be far greater, as it represents a far more important element of the establishment's life strategy."
Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have said that they will not support a proposed UN Security Council resolution that would formally establish a Palestinian state, that would set the parameters for the new state, and that would grant them East Jerusalem as their capital. So at this moment there is a tremendous amount of international pressure on Barack Obama to support such a resolution, because the U.S. veto power on the UN Security Council is the only thing standing in the way of formally dividing the land of Israel. I wrote about this in August, in September, and now I am writing about it again in October. If Obama is going to do this, it needs to happen by January 20th, 2017, and so for the next few months we are officially in “the danger zone.”
On Thursday, the New York Times editorial board added their voice to the growing chorus of those calling for a “parameters resolution” in a piece entitled “At the Boiling Point With Israel“…
The best idea under discussion now would be to have the United Nations Security Council, in an official resolution, lay down guidelines for a peace agreement covering such issues as Israel’s security, the future of Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees and borders for both states.
In the article, the New York Times editorial board also strongly endorsed the U.S. State Department’s recent condemnation of Israel’s plan to build new housing units in the West Bank.
We strongly condemn the Israeli government’s recent decision to advance a plan that would create a significant new settlement deep in the West Bank.
As you can see on the official State Department website, that press release was issued on October 5th.
At the exact same time, Hurricane Matthew was rapidly gaining strength, and it ultimately became the first category 5 hurricane to form in the Atlantic since 2007. It proceeded to slam into the southeastern United States, causing billions of dollars of damage in the process. The following comes from Wikipedia…
Preparations began in earnest across the southeastern United States as Matthew approached, with several states declaring astate of emergency for either entire states or coastal counties; widespread evacuations were ordered for extensive areas of the coast. On October 6, U.S. President Barack Obamadeclared a federal state of emergency for Florida.The federal disaster declaration was later extended to include Georgia and South Carolina. In Florida, over 1 million lost power as the storm passed to the east, with 478,000 losing power in Georgia and South Carolina.
When will we learn?
For decades the pattern has always been the same. Every time we come against Israel, the consequences are immediate and they are dramatic.
Unfortunately, our leaders never seem to learn, and now we stand on the precipice of perhaps the biggest betrayal of Israel of all time. Here is more from the New York Times about why they believe it is important to put “pressure” on Israel in the form of a UN Security Council resolution…
No, such a resolution would not just be “a bureaucratic response.”
A UN Security Council resolution would be legally binding on both Israel and the Palestinians, and whoever is elected in November would not be able to go back and undo it.
Such a resolution would permanently divide the land of Israel, it would give formal UN recognition to a Palestinian state for the very first time, and it would hand East Jerusalem over to the Palestinians.
And according to the Times of Israel, the UN Security Council could begin discussing these matters as soon as next Friday…
The Security Council is expected to hold a session next Friday under the official banner: “The settlements as the obstacle to peace and a two-state solution.”
The meeting, initiated by the Palestinians, is considered the opening salvo to a resolution condemning Israel for settlement activity.
This process could result in just a resolution condemning Israeli settlement activity, but there is also a tremendous amount of concern that Obama could use this as an opportunity to “leave a legacy” in the Middle East. Here is more from the Times of Israel…
Empires fall. That is an inescapable universal law. What the world is witnessing now, are the death throes of the US Empire, writhing in fury at the exposure of its malevolent and predatory imperialist past and present. The future is perhaps more uncertain than even the Washington oligarchs could have imagined. Their evil hegemonic designs for the world seem to have hit an insurmountable obstacle in Syria.
There is a mountain of inconvenient facts and alternative interpretations that the media are not passing on to you, in favour of perpetuating a distorted narrative about a civil war and the “moderates” these outside governments are said to be supporting. In fact they are the groups (or their clones) against which we were supposed to be aligned in the “war on terror”.
In any case this is no longer just a Syrian war but an existential contest between the US and Russia. The US is losing but is determined to win. Vladimir Putin, having committed Russian forces, cannot back off, either.
So be on your guard. Whether here or in the US or the UK, the mainstream media are parroting the government line. Look for alternative sources on the net and come to your own conclusions. For your sake, for the sake of Syria and its people, and for the sake of avoiding what Putin has described as America’s “irreversible course” towards war – a war that could be nuclear – do not allow yourselves to be played for fools again.”
Israeli security and police authorities fear that the drive-by shooting attack in Jerusalem Sun. Oct. 9 was planned as the opening shot of a round of major Palestinian terror assaults, most likely in Jerusalem, over the Jewish High Holidays.
Police, Border Guards and elite police units are fanned out wide to forestall any attacks, over and above the regular reinforcement of manpower, including volunteers, for Yom Kippur, especially at the Western Wall which sees a mass intake of worshippers for the annual Day of Repentance.
I have no doubt that going against Israel causes great calamity... I have seen statistics in history that matches that very thing...immediate disaster in the forms of hurricanes, earthquakes and the like...
Watching Obama closely these next few weeks/months could lead to utter destruction of America... Israel MUST NOT be divided!
This is worth a watching, obviously always be vigilant for errors etc and keep an open mind. God bless America!
Appears that Russia is seriously expecting a preemptive strike from the US. Or is it just more smoke, mirrors and sabre rattling to frighten the masses? Though the masses in the US for the most part remain asleep. Regardless... May the Lord soon call us, His ambassadors, Home!
Amen brother, man
ok I'm officially hating autospell
Scott, everybody identifies with you there buddy. Technology is wonderful and the devil at the same time.
If this is true, and Russia is indeed recalling all the children from studying abroad, this has my alarm bells ringing at full blast. This isn't t saber rattling..........its way beyond that. And right after bunker drills for 40 million....and after moving their best missiles to a position facing NATO on the border.
Sounds to me like at least one of the players is serious. And that's the one that must make the first strike if it is to survive.
I agree with carver! Militarily, when you send a directive out like that, all hell is gonna break loose shortly there after.
Word around Russian hierarchy circles supposedly from Putin himself, is that if Hillary wins Russia will have to do a first strike. Putin feels he has no option. :(
While I take gossip with a big grain of salt, this one I'm pretty sure it is real. I'd certainly be considering it if I was in charge of Russia
It's hard to know hat to believe these days. So much coming at us. But I agree. Seems we're beyond threats.
If this nuclear talk is real and we are the door step of a first strike, I can't imagine that the rapture won't come first. For some reason I have zero fear and perfect peace. Perhaps Today! The rapture of course! 😀
When reading the article, in context, the whole article about Russia, this is about Russian politics. Russia is NOT recalling their military guys on leave, or vacation, etc. as Israel does for example. The entire original article in Russian that Zero references, is much more detailed than Zero presents. smh
Look always to Gods Word in these Last Days. We know that the U.S. will not help Israel, and we know that Russia will not be destroyed with "MAD" from the U.S. because that will be Gods Great Pleasure to do it Himself on the mountains surrounding Israel! :)
Some perspective maybe....I was not able to check my phone until tonight (I check it for prophecy related updates constantly...I have a problem I know). When I read these articles and comments, it seems like a totally different world from the one I was in today. It seems like absolutely no one is aware of or talking about any of this. It is truly biz as usual. This world is going to get caught off guard in a big way.
I don't think anybody is suggesting that they are bring in the military - and other articles say that the 'political aspect' is a smokescreen for something...who knows...again, I'm just posting whats out there but a couple of dozen sites are carrying this story...I agree that Russia won;t be destroyed by anything prior to Gog-Magog - but that doesn't mean that they couldn't launch a pre-emptive strike on us (especially after Hillary steals the election) or an EMP against the US
Lance - thats always the case...I'm re-reading Jeremiah and the number of warnings that they received is ridiculous - In fact a lot of Jeremiah is so redundant because they received the same warnings over and over and over - but choose to believe the false prophets who kept saying that all is well, no problems on the horizon. LOL....But its the same now..I personally believe 'normalcy bias' accounts for a lot of it.
Truly, I know many,many sites pick up untrue or exaggerated stories and run with them. I have seen it time and time again. I was giving the example of impending military conflict when Israel is concerned, and Russia is just pulling students involving the so called "elites" and other office position folks. The quoted paragraph from Zero with the "prepare for Big War" comment, is first of all, out of context to another's opinion in the piece, and second is not uncommon at all for other countries to do. The upper class in these countries, usually send they children to other countries for their educations. Even Osama Bin Laden did.
Forgive me, but again, Russia knows full well that even if they attacked the U.S., they would suffer greatly. That is what I referred to as we have all know for decades, MAD - Mutual Assured Destruction. I dont believe that Putin is willing to take that chance, even a little,because of how it will affect his power in Russia. He also knows that he basically can do whatever he wants, and has been for years with ovomit in power. He has no respect for ovomit,and is by this time bored with him. His primary concern has always been his reign of power, and his wealth, cloaking it well in Russian pride.
Could something happen to the U.S.? Yes, indeed, as Brother Hal used to say/warn decades ago in his Church, sadly, and with a heavy heart, folks, the U.S. is no where in the Last Days Prophecies of God. That could be because of the utter weakness of ovomit refusing to engage in world events. It could be ovomit allowing, God Forbid, something happening to our troops abroad, and then completely withdrawing like the true ignorant coward he is. It could be as simple as a terrorist causing great destruction here within our Country, or a major financial collapse. What ever it will be, God knows, and we have to Trust in Him, and not ourselves. He Promises, if we draw close to Him, He draws close to us. :) We have to know His Word, and stand firm...whew...it are gonna be interesting thats for sure! Whew! :)
