Matthew 24:3-14 3 Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” 4 And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. 5 For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. 6 And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences,[b] and earthquakes in various places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. 10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another.
11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free
2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” (2nd Corinthians 2:6)
DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
CAN A DIVORCED COUPLE RE-MARRY?
QUESTION: A divorced couple has entertained the idea of re-marrying. The man stayed unmarried but the woman is going through a divorce with her current husband of 3 years. The reasons for the divorce is his addiction to pornography, which she feels is adultery against her. I have been under the assumption that a man should not remarry a wife who has been polluted through adultery (She had committed adultery – the reason for the divorce previously mentioned.) What do the scriptures have to say about such a situation? Would it be biblical for the two to marry again?
ANSWER: I’m assuming that both these people are believers. That being the case, all the sins of their lives were forgiven at the cross and the slate was wiped clean for them when they accepted the Lord’s death as payment for their sins (Colossians 2:13-14). This includes the wife’s sin of adultery that ended her first marriage. If she has confessed her sin, she has been forgiven and has been purified from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9). If she and her former husband want to remarry, I can’t see any reason why they shouldn’t. In fact I think the Lord would be pleased if they did, because reconciliation is always His preference.
DIVORCED IN THEIR HEART
QUESTION: It seems like you have made a case that marriage or divorce need only consist of an internal attitude of heart among the parties in a coupling, so that any committed couple would become divorced in God’s sight at the point where they no longer wanted to be married, even if it were an unspoken feeling. Do I have this right? If so, then since this state of affairs can develop involuntarily over time in spite of the best intentions, how can such an ‘internal’ divorce ever be considered a sin? There is no act of violation, but only a falling out of love.
ANSWER: The flaw in your thinking comes from the fact that love is not just a feeling. It’s also an action. When a couple commits to love one another until death parts them, they’re not saying they’ll always have that initial feeling, they’re saying they’ll always take the necessary action. The necessary action is described in Ephesians 5:22-28, Colossians 3:18-19, and 1 Peter 3:1-7. As a blessing for taking the necessary action, God will help them keep the feeling alive.
Many couples who don’t do this wind up falling out of love. They often maintain the outward appearance of marriage for various reasons, but in their heart they may secretly harbour a raft of feelings such as resentment, anger, envy, lust for others, etc, in place of the love they once felt for their spouse. These are all sins, and if not confessed will give the devil a foothold in their minds (Ephes. 4:26-27) which he will quickly turn into a stronghold. The result is often an apathetic husband and a rebellious wife. In their hearts they’re divorced.
A situation like this doesn’t happen in spite of the couple’s best intentions, because that would mean they did everything possible and God didn’t keep His end of the bargain. It happens due to a failure to take the necessary action. He will not dishonour those who honour Him.
God has never been willing to accept external appearances in the absence of internal motives where it comes to worshipping Him (Isaiah 29:13) and since marriage is supposed to be a model of the relationship between Him and the Church, I believe the same principle applies to our marriages.
SHOULD I HAVE DIVORCED HIM?
QUESTION: Thank you so very much for your ministry. My husband and I have been born again Christians for many years, but our marriage has never been good. Now my husband has bladder cancer and I’m not being very supportive. Many years ago he had a relationship outside our marriage. I have always felt that I had forgiven him and I know God has forgiven him but now I’m not so sure about myself.
When all this happened I felt strongly that God wanted me to continue in the marriage, and not divorce, so we continued. All went well for a few years but then everything sort of went back to the way we always were.
Now with his illness I find myself wondering why I didn’t get a divorce in the first place. I’m sure Satan is working in my mind. I just have a terrible temper and lash out at my husband all the time. I know this is wrong, but I continue to lose IT. We are both miserable and I want to change my attitude, but everyday seems to end like the last. Thank you for any words of wisdom. I love the Lord with all my heart and so want to be pleasing in His sight.
ANSWER: First of all let’s remember that you stayed with your husband out of faithfulness to the Lord, not because your husband deserved it.
Even so, it sounds to me like you’re still harbouring some unforgiveness over your husband’s affair. This could be manifesting itself in the resentment you feel about having to take care of him now. In turn this has opened the door for Satan to torment you.
The solution is to go before the Lord and unconditionally forgive your husband. At first this will be contrary to your feelings about him. It will have to be a choice you are making by faith, not by how you feel. But with the Lord’s help and continued declarations of forgiveness, your feelings will align themselves with your choice and you will find you truly have forgiven him.
Matthew 6:15 tells us that until you can accomplish this the Lord cannot truly forgive you for your sins of resentment and anger toward your husband. And you will find there will be a barrier to achieving the closeness you desire with the Lord.
Once you have forgiven your husband from your heart the Lord will be free to restore your relationship and heal all the past wounds you still feel.

PROPHECY OF ELAM – (Possible Attack on Iran’s Nuclear Program
https://prophecyupdate.blogspot.com/ – Ben Farmer
A nuclear war between India and Pakistan could kill up to 125 million people and then tip the world into a decade of starvation as smoke blocks sunlight, researchers have estimated.
If the neighbours attacked each other with a significant proportion of their growing nuclear arsenals, millions would die instantly from the blast and then firestorms would rage through cities. The fires would send huge quantities of smoke into the atmosphere, devastating agriculture as it blocked sunlight and cut temperatures.
Escalating tension between the countries because of their rivalry over Kashmir has this year underlined the threat the threat of war between the nuclear-armed states.
They have fought two wars over the disputed Himalayan territory and fought air clashes in February.
Researchers considered a scenario in 2025 where militants attack India’s parliament, killing most of its leaders. New Delhi retaliates by sending tanks into the part of Kashmir controlled by Pakistan. Fearing it will be overrun, Islamabad hits the invading forces with its battlefield nuclear weapons, triggering a nuclear war.
Calculating different outcomes according to whether the rivals use their largest nuclear weapons, the researchers estimated 50 to 125 million people could die, and nuclear-ignited fires would spread smoke across the world within weeks.
Surface sunlight could fall by 20 to 35 per cent, cooling the global surface by 2 to 5C and reducing rain and snow by 15 to 30 per cent. Recovery would take more than 10 years.
Agriculture would fall by 15 to 30 per cent on land, threatening mass starvation and additional worldwide collateral fatalities.
The Winds of War – THOSE THAT DENY THE COMING WEATHER WILL BE LAID NAKED BEFORE IT AND WILL PAY THE PRICE
The winds of war are now blowing around the world. One day we will look back on these days with longing as one would look back on the gentle breezes of summer as the hurricane blows outside.
It cannot be over emphasized as to the amount of danger America is facing. We are being systematically cut off and separated from our allies and will eventually stand alone to face the fury of the hurricane that approaches. We are currently being set up to take a fall that some hope will be the end of this nation as we know it. The treason and treachery being perpetrated on this nation is a result of the mutation of the population from ants to grasshoppers. We are about to get exactly what we voted for and most people do not understand what that means.
Our birthright has been sold for a hand full of magic beans that will turn out to be rancid leftovers from someone’s failed business adventures. The wealth this nation has amassed over the decades is rapidly dwindling and will suddenly disappear in its entirety as the nation sleeps one night in the near future. The masses will awake one morning in a strange new land that holds no future for them or their children. They will be dumbstruck as to how they got there. The warnings will have been dismissed as insane talk by delusional people that don’t conform to societies norms.
It will be these few delusional, insane people that will determine the future of the once great nation. They will be the only ones that understand the dangers and are prepared to deal with the deadly winter weather. When the snow piles up they will have supplies and heat. When the wolves appear at the door they will have the weapons to fight them off. When the winds blow away the shelters of society the few will be safe in their structures reinforced to handle the tempest.
War is being fomented and when it comes the U.S. will be hard pressed to survive it. Our military is being downsized, weapons systems are being reduced and many senior commanders are being fired for dubious reasons at best. The civil population is being systematically impoverished while government operatives tell them the nation is strong and getting stronger. Our manufacturing base has been dismantled and over 17% of our food is imported today. We have bankers that are stealing hard assets with fiat funny money and plan to steal peoples savings with new government regulations and laws. We are on the verge of losing reserve currency status and our banking system as we know it.
We are being inundated by foreigners that seek government entitlements and refuse to assimilate the American culture or language further dividing the civil population into domestic tribes hostile to one another. We have terrorist training camps within our borders and a lack of border control. We have members of the Muslim Brotherhood in the highest levels of our government and leaders that are ignorant at best and treasonous at worst.
War is coming to the world and to America on many levels and it cannot be stopped. The best anyone can do is to prepare and try to stay out of the way of the most serious fighting and bide their time until they can get the upper hand in their locality. The world is about to change in a very radical way and many are not prepared for it either physically or mentally. The forecast has been given and the storm flags are up.
The “Sea of Red” In This Map Can Only Be Pushed So Far Before They Push Back Hard – Liberals Want A Civil War, Conservatives Are Prepared To Oblige Them
By Susan Duclos
NewsBusters reports that “MSNBC Fears ‘Heavily Armed’ Trump Supporters Invading D.C.,” and of course MSNBC blames President Trump’s statements and tweets for the possibility, rather than Democrats, so desperate to prevent the entire truth of what went down in 2016, and how high level members of the U.S. intelligence agencies attempted to frame a candidate, then the duly elected President, of conspiring with Russia to interfere in the Presidential election.
While MSNBC misleads about the reason, and their “heavily armed” is hyperbolic, there is no doubt from the chatter we are seeing that conservatives that have watched three solid years of Democrats screaming “Russia” and “Collusion,” just to have a multi-million dollar investigation that lasted nearly two years, clear the President of any collusion charges, are angry to yet again see Democrats now screaming “Ukraine” and collusion, while opening an impeachment inquiry.
On October 1, 2019, President Trump sent out two very important tweets.
As I learn more and more each day, I am coming to the conclusion that what is taking place is not an impeachment, it is a COUP, intended to take away the Power of the….
….People, their VOTE, their Freedoms, their Second Amendment, Religion, Military, Border Wall, and their God-given rights as a Citizen of The United States of America!
The importance of this cannot be overstated, because after failing to bring down the President on a charge that was set up against the President, by the Obama era intelligence agency heads, and seeing that his chances for reelection are high, Democrats decided to take him down any way they can, before the American public learns the entire truth of first coup attempt.
Of course they don’t have the two-thirds votes in the Senate to convict him, or remove him from office, but in their frantic panic, they are, in fact, attempting a second coup against the President of the United States of America.
Throughout history coup attempts have led to often bloody civil wars. Via OEF Research: “Coups d’état are frequently both causes and consequences of larger-scale civil wars and rebellions.”
Chatter around the web shows that this entire thing could get very ugly.
Back in June, retired U.S. Army Sgt. Artie Muller, who founded and still leads the annual veterans’ motorcycle gathering known as ‘Rolling Thunder’ warned Democrats in no uncertain terms that if Democrats in Congress attempted to impeach President Trump, hundreds of thousands of bikers in his orbit would be prepared to descend on Washington DC to protest.
Bikers for Trump has more 330,000 followers on Facebook.
Other groups are behind the idea as well.
• Bill Williamson, a Maryland native who organized the 2 Million Bikers to D.C. rally in 2013, which brought thousands of bikers to counterprotest a 9/11 event originally called the Million Muslim March, told the Washington Examiner in May that he “most certainly will” be involved in anti-impeachment planning.
• Ski Bischof, who organized a pro-Trump rally in Washington’s Dupont Circle in January 2017, said Monday, “If the call is put out to ride, I’ll be there, along with many like minded brothers and sisters.”
• In Virginia, Rolling Thunder chapter President Francis “Mac” MacDonald said in May he “and most of our chapter” would ride in Trump’s defense but stressed it would be in a personal capacity. Muller declined to offer further comment when reached by phone Monday.
Social media users are also making plans:
• One Twitter user wrote, “I am not rich, don’t have a ton of extra money BUT I do have an earmark account for tickets/hotel for just such an occurrence. WE WILL DESCEND ON DC!!!”
• Another Twitter user received 1,000 retweets and almost 200 concurrences writing, “The rest of us Patriots will be joining them. Who else will show up????”
SGT Pat over at WhatFingerNews, left a little note on the NewsBuster’s piece about MSBC’s panel worrying about heavily armed Trump supporters marching on DC, which said “(I’m down if Trump needed us and called for help…Sgt Pat).”
Take a look at the image of the map at the top of this article that says “try to impeach this,” posted by President Trump, without any commentary, and understand that if liberals want and continue to push for a civil war because they know exactly what is about to be exposed by AG Barr and U.S. Attorney John Durham, and they continue along the path they are on to attempt to overturn the 2016 election and overthrow a duly elected President, all that sea of red in that map, is going to rise up and make them regret it.
What liberals need to remember is that sea of red is the heartland of America, where the majority of food is grown that those liberal enclaves of blue need to survive. Those heartland Americans are also Second Amendment supporters. That sea of red has finally had enough of watching the media and liberals attempt to overthrow our President.
If this cold civil war goes hot….. liberals cannot win, so they better back off and quit pushing, because eventually that sea of red will push back and it will not be a pretty sight to behold.

Is the Mediterranean the new playground for the Russian Navy?
Russia is expanding its naval presence in the Eastern Mediterranean because it’s easier than trying to, compete with the United States on the world’s oceans, according to Dmitry Gorenburg, an expert on the Russian military, in an analysis for the George C. Marshall European Center for Security Studies.
“Maintaining naval presence in the Mediterranean is a far more effective strategy for the Russian Navy than pursuing a globally active blue-water navy because Russia has neither the resources nor the global ambitions to challenge U.S. naval supremacy around the world,” writes Gorenburg. “Moscow’s focus on developing and augmenting the Mediterranean squadron is thus a far more achievable limited objective that is well-aligned with Russia’s foreign policy objectives in the region.”
It was resurrected in 2013 as the Mediterranean Squadron, drawn primarily from the ships of the Black Sea Fleet, which itself has been equipped with several new submarines and surface ships. Meanwhile, the Syrian port of Tartus – a Cold War pit stop for the Fifth Eskadra – has again become a Russian base for servicing warships, including nuclear-powered vessels.
In addition, Russian aircraft operate from Syrian bases, as well as a variety of missile systems, including S-400 and S-300 long-range and Pantsir short-range anti-aircraft missiles, as well as K-300 Bastian and Kh-35 coastal defense anti-ship missiles. A permanent force in the Mediterranean enhances Russian prestige in the region, deters Western military operations in the areas, and provides security against the Mediterranean as a base for hostile forces to strike the Russian homeland.
Gorenburg sees Moscow as eschewing an American-style power projection navy with its big aircraft carriers, in favor of a more defensive forces armed with access denial weapons such as small missile-equipped corvettes. “The idea is that the Russian Navy can use these ships to create maritime zones that are difficult for enemy forces to penetrate.
Should Russian forces stay in the Mediterranean, they would pose a serious threat to U.S. and NATO forces by creating an increasingly dense missile and electronic-warfare environment farther into the eastern Mediterranean Sea. Russia would have to expect that it would lose these forces to an ultimately numerically and qualitatively superior enemy force, albeit after exacting a potentially high cost on its adversary.”
The Times of Israel is liveblogging Thursday’s events as they happen.
President Reuven Rivlin addresses lawmakers as the 22nd Knesset is sworn in with no new government in sight.
Rivlin acknowledges criticism of his efforts to broker a unity government between Likud and Blue and White after both feel short of winning enough seats with their allies to form a coalition after last month’s elections. “It is legitimate and contains some truth,” he says.
Though his position is largely ceremonial, Rivlin says are times when a president is required to intervene “as part of carrying out his official role,” such as when no party has a clear path to forming a government.
“I know this — we are facing a time of crisis for the House of Jacob, an emergency for Israel’s security and for Israeli society, an emergency for Israeli democracy: all that is dear to us,” he says.
“Forming a government is not only the wish of the people. More than ever, in times like these, it is an economic and security need the likes of which we have not known for many years,” he adds.
Prime Minister Netanyahu reiterates his call for the formation of a “broad national unity government” and rejects his rival Benny Gantz’s call for him to step down over his legal woes.
Netanyahu says that such a government is the “will of the nation” after both his Likud party and Gantz’s Blue and White failed to secure sufficient support together with their allies in last month’s elections to form a government alone.
“Apparently Benny Gantz is trying to escape from this decision. He is suggesting changing the democratic process. I don’t intend to accede to this request,” Netanyahu says, referring to Gantz’s demand he step down.
Blue and White leader Benny Gantz reiterates his centrist party’s commitment to forming a unity government after last month’s elections left neither bloc with a clear path to a majority.
Gantz says Netanyahu is now “the sole obstacle” to a unity government involving Blue and White and Likud, and that the broad platform of such a “liberal unity government” is agreed by the parties.
Israel, says Gantz, “needs a prime minister who can attend to its citizens’ needs, not his legal difficulties… a unity government not a immunity government.”
He charges that Netanyahu is “prepared to do anything to protect his own interests, even if that means dragging us to us to new elections.”
“The best thing for Israel is a unity government on the basis of fundamentals,” Gantz tells Blue and White lawmakers before the swearing-in of the new Knesset.
His comments jive with those of Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman, who is pushing for a unity government that includes his party, Netanyahu’s Likud and Blue and White.
Prime Minister Netanyahu addresses Knesset members before the traditional group picture of party leaders and again calls for the formation of a “broad national unity government” to stave off a third round of elections in less than a year.
“We are not the only ones who suffer from this problem,” Netanyahu says of prolonged political gridlock. “But we cannot let ourselves suffer this problem. No one is as challenged as much as we are, no other country. And democracies that haven’t understood that you need to unite at time of danger suffer a heavy price.”
Netanyahu warns Israel faces major security challenges — namely Iran — which he says require the formation of a broad government.
“This isn’t spin, it’s not a whim, this is not ‘Netanyahu trying to scare us,’” he says.
Netanyahu lauds President Rivlin’s proposal for a unity government and references Elvis Presley in calling for the quick formation of a new government.
“I’ll quote an Elvis Presley song: ‘It’s now or never.’ But I’ll amend it a little — it’s now or later. The right thing to do now is to [finalize a unity government]. But if we don’t do it now, then [we’ll still have to do it] after I return the mandate, and Benny Gantz returns the mandate, and the final 21 days pass…”
Swedes are on the move. Problems in many municipalities are prompting Swedes to leave for other areas with fewer socioeconomic problems. The issue has recently gained the attention of the Swedish mainstream media.
Take the small, picturesque town of Filipstad (population 10,000), for example. Swedish television recently made a documentary about the town, which finds itself in both a financial and an existential crisis.
“We are experiencing a population exchange. You can think of that what you want… But it is simply a statement of fact that this is actually what we are going through and we have to deal with it”, Jim Frölander, integration manager in the Filipstad municipality, says in the documentary.
Between 2012 and 2018, 640 native Swedes left the town, and 963 foreign-born people moved into the town. Those leaving are people of working age (20-64), which means that the municipality’s tax revenues are shrinking, exacerbating town’s financial crisis.
The largest influx of immigrants came during the migration crisis in 2015. Filipstad, according to the documentary, was one of the municipalities that received the highest number of immigrants as a percentage of its population. Claes Hultgren, head of the municipality, wrote in Filipstad’s latest financial report:
“In Filipstad, there are around 750 adults from Syria, Somalia, Eritrea, Afghanistan and Iraq…. In this group, unemployment and dependency are very high, while education levels are very low. This group runs the risk of ending in an eternal exclusion that is already heavily burdening the municipal economy.”
Hultgren explained that many of the newcomers do not have the qualifications to enter the labor market.
“[They] are maybe too old and illiterate, or have a very low educational level. We must accept that there will be some people who will need the support of society for their livelihood.”
According to the documentary, unemployment is at 80% among the non-Western foreign-born residents of the town, even while the town is suffering a severe lack of teachers and nurses. In ten years, Filipstad’s expenditures on social welfare have increased 200% — from 10 million kroner ($1 million) in 2009 to almost 30 million ($3.1 million) in 2018. The projection for 2019 is 31 million Swedish kroner ($3.2 million). This year, Filipstad simply does not have the 30 million kroner in its budget.
Filipstad is far from the only Swedish municipality to experience these problems.
As a consequence of taking in so many immigrants within a relatively short time span, not only during the extraordinary migration crisis in 2015 but overall in the years 2012-2017, municipalities are fighting high unemployment, a rise in child poverty and rising social welfare expenditures, according to Frölander.
“It becomes much more visible in smaller municipalities. There you cannot isolate it [the problem] in a suburb and then [pretend] ‘business as usual’, because it affects the entire body of that society and that is what is going to happen in all of Sweden, too.”
“There is simply not enough money for schools, and [health] care—the core of the social democratic welfare state. The refugee wave put tremendous pressure, not least [on] poor municipalities and now the costs of social welfare are increasing. In addition, the population is getting older, and add to this a coming recession…
“The criticism [of the government] comes not only from local politicians, it also comes from former [Social Democratic] party leader Göran Persson, who warns about the municipalities’ vulnerable position. LO’s chairman Karl-Petter Thorwaldsson, also a member of the party’s executive committee, warns [Prime Minister] Stefan Löfven of the municipalities’ crisis and demands action…”
Swedes are leaving their towns and cities for other reasons as well, such as a lack of personal security. The frequently reported gang violence, assaults, shootings, bombs and car-torchings have been taking their toll. On August 31, Aftonbladet ran a story about Emma Zetterholm, who chose to leave Malmö with her family after living in the city for 18 years. “I still love Malmö but my family and I cannot live here” she told the newspaper. “The violence crept closer and closer to me, my relatives, friends and colleagues.”
Six years ago, Zetterholm moved into an idyllic area with old villas. Soon enough, however, car-torchings, shootings and explosions filled the night. An illegal nightclub operated close by and the noise around it—explosions and shootings—went on all night. Neighbors who complained received verbal threats and stones thrown through their windows. One day, a man was murdered in broad daylight, close to a playground full of people. At other times, children were nearly hit by bullets that had gone through windows.
Zetterholm explains that she felt that her family’s situation was bizarre but she still kept trying to convince herself that it was not that dangerous. She says it feels “awful” to be part of a trend where “well-educated, white middle class flee problematic areas.”
“I have tried to defend Malmö,” she said, “But the more time passes and you notice that there is no improvement, you eventually lose your resilience”.
Many Swedes are leaving their cities, but some have decided to leave the country altogether. On September 4, an explosion occurred in front of an apartment building in Malmö. The blast was heard in many parts of the city. A Danish man in the neighborhood, Magne Juul, told Kvällsposten that after this latest bombing, he is now considering moving back to Denmark after living for 15 years in Malmö.
The windows of a synagogue in Brooklyn were smashed by vandals this week during Rosh Hashanah services.
A video showing people throwing milk crates at the Rivnitz synagogue in the Williamsburg neighborhood was circulated Wednesday on social media.
Police said that the incident took place on Monday afternoon and they were searching for two females who were seen in the video, according to WPIX-TV.
The Anti-Defamation League said it was “deeply disturbed” by the video.
“At a time when the Brooklyn Jewish community is already on edge in the wake of a series of anti-Semitic incidents, it is extremely upsetting to see this congregation targeted during what is otherwise supposed to be a joyous celebration of the Jewish New Year,” Evan Bernstein, the regional director of the organization’s New York-New Jersey office, said in a statement.
There has been a spate of attacks in recent months against visibly Orthodox Jewish men in Brooklyn.
That U.S. tech giants are willing participants in facilitating mass government surveillance has been widely known for a while, particularly since whistleblower Edward Snowden risked his life and liberty to tell us about it six years ago. We also know what happens to executives who don’t play ball.
Perhaps the most high profile example relates to Joseph Nacchio, CEO of telecom company Quest in the aftermath of 9/11. Courageously, he was the only executive who pushed back against government attempts to violate the civil liberties of his customers. A few years later, he was thrown in jail for insider trading and stayed locked up for four years. He claimed his incarceration was retaliation for not bending the knee to government, which seems likely.
Charges his defense team claimed were U.S. government retaliation for his refusal to give customer data to the National Security Agency in February, 2001. This defense was not admissible in court because the U.S. Department of Justice filed an in limine motion, which is often used in national security cases, to exclude information which may reveal state secrets. Information from the Classified Information Procedures Act hearings in Nacchio’s case was likewise ruled inadmissible
Fast forward to today, and the tech giants have willingly and enthusiastically transformed themselves into compliant organs of the national security state. Big tech executives have by and large embraced this extremely lucrative and powerful role rather than push back against it. There’s simply too much money at stake, and nobody wants to go to the big house like Joe Nacchio. There is no resistance.
Just yesterday, we learned that Twitter’s executive for the Middle East is an actual British Army ‘psyops’ soldier. Unfortunately, this is not a joke.
The more connected these tech giants are to the national security state, the more dangerous and unassailable they become. A destructive process which is already very much underway.
Centralized and unaccountable government power is always an existential threat to human liberty, but centralized and unaccountable government power exercised via tech behemoths which aren’t restrained by the Constitution is even worse. This is the world being built around us, and we’d be wise to address it soon.
SIGNS OF THE TIMES? EARTHQUAKE SWARMS HIT TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, SAN FRANCISCO AND THE NEW MADRID FAULT ZONE
There is a whole lotta shaking going on in America right now, and many people are concerned about what that could potentially mean. Could it be possible that the U.S. is entering a more seismically active time? This week alone, we have seen earthquake swarms in Texas, Oklahoma, San Francisco and the New Madrid fault zone. Of course earthquakes happen every day, but to see so many earthquake swarms happen in such diverse places within such a compressed period of time is definitely unusual.
And what makes this even more unusual is the fact that Rosh Hashanah just ended. In fact, the earthquake swarm that we just witnessed in Texas started on Rosh Hashanah with a magnitude 4.0 quake near the town of “Snyder”…
In just over 12 hours, Texas experienced not one earthquake, but four, experts say.
Three quakes were centered near the town of Snyder — just south of the Texas panhandle — with a fourth centered near the Fort Worth area, according to the United States Geological Survey. The first and strongest of the cluster hit just after 4:45 p.m. Monday about 12 miles north of Snyder and measured magnitude 4.0.
That was the strongest earthquake in Texas so far this year, and it was followed by a magnitude 3.8 earthquake near Snyder, a magnitude 3.2 earthquake just south of Fort Worth, and a magnitude 2.5 earthquake near Snyder.
Meanwhile, we have been witnessing unusual earthquake activity in Oklahoma as well.
Over the past 24 hours, the state has experienced 9 earthquakes of at least magnitude 1.5, and over the past 7 days there have been 40 such earthquakes.
Decades ago, Oklahoma was very quiet geologically, but things sure have changed over the past few years. If you can believe it, there have already been more than 1,000 earthquakes of at least magnitude 1.5 in Oklahoma so far in 2019.
Meanwhile, we continue to see unusual seismic activity along the California coast. This week, a swarm of five moderate earthquakes in the San Francisco area made headlines all over the nation…
A swarm of tiny temblors shook up California’s East Bay over the past 24 hours, the U.S. Geological Survey reports.
The agency reported at least five quakes registering from 2.0 to 2.9 magnitude, along with a slew of even smaller temblors registering below 2.0 magnitude.
The swarm centered on Dublin and San Ramon on the east side of San Francisco Bay.
Those earthquakes didn’t really cause any significant damage, but the concern is that all of this shaking could be leading up to something. I wrote about this potential danger a few days ago, and scientists assure us that “the Big One” is way overdue and that at some point our time will run out.
In less than an hour on Monday morning, southeastern Missouri was hit by five significant earthquakes…
It started with a 2.6 magnitude temblor around 11:18 a.m. near Lilbourn, a small city just north of Missouri’s boot heel, according to the United States Geological Survey. A mere three minutes later, a 1.1 magnitude quake rumbled nearby.
Just before 11:30 a.m., a 2.7 magnitude quake rattled southwest of Lilbourn followed by a 1.8 magnitude quake only five minutes later, the USGS says.
It would be 23 minutes before the next quake, another magnitude 2.7, shook an area just west of Lilbourn, the USGS says.
For those that don’t know, southeastern Missouri sits right along the New Madrid fault zone, and in the early portion of the 19th century this part of the country was shaken by four of the largest earthquakes in U.S. history…
The New Madrid Seismic Zone is the most active earthquake zone east of the Rocky Mountains and spans southeastern Missouri, northeastern Arkansas, western Tennessee, western Kentucky, and southern Illinois.
Between 1811 and 1812, the New Madrid Fault experienced some of the largest quakes in history. And although they originated in the Mississippi Valley, they rang church bells in Boston and shook New York City — over 1,000 miles away.
Even then-President James Madison and his wife Dolley reportedly felt shaking at the White House.
Scientists tell us that it is just a matter of time before earthquakes of that magnitude happen again, and this is something that I have been persistently warning about.
The stock market hasn’t started a quarter this badly in about a decade, and if stock prices continue to plummet it could set off a wave of panic selling unlike anything that we have seen in a very long time. Of course it wouldn’t be the first time that we have seen a major stock market crash during the month of October. If I mention “October 1929”, you immediately know what I am referring to, and the same thing is true for October 1987 and October 2008. Today, we are facing a global economic slowdown, an impeachment crisis in Washington and a rapidly escalating trade war simultaneously, and it seems like almost everyone on Wall Street is suddenly talking about “the coming recession”. In such an environment, any piece of bad news is going to push stocks lower, and that is certainly what happened on Wednesday… (READ MORE…)

THERE IS NO PRESIDENTIAL CRIME, NO WHISTLEBLOWER, ONLY A TREASONOUS COUP

There Is No Presidential Crime, No Whistle-blower, Only a Treasonous Coup- Here is the latest on this outrageous betrayal of the American people by the Democratic Socialists!

And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.”
It isn’t that it is Mystery Babylon, so as that her identity could be interpreted as anyone’s guess, but that there is a Mystery about Babylon. The mystery as it was revealed in the New Testament, and even more recently, is that she is the wellspring of ALL false doctrine and religions. Dr. Rhodes goes on to conclude that after the Rapture the Church (1 Thess. 4:13-18) and the Gog-Magog War (Ezekiel 38-39), the world’s two most exclusive religions, Biblical Christianity and Islam will be removed. The Rapture will remove the true Christians from the earth. The Gog-Magog War will effectively destroy Islamic militancy forever. Thus, the world will be ripe for both delusion and ecumenism. This ecumenism will find itself source goes ALL the way back to Mother Babel.
However, this creates a major, political, theological, and spiritual vacuum, which the Antichrist and the False Prophet will rush in to fill. Politically, the Antichrist will create some form of political alliance with Israel. His partner, the False Prophet, will in conjunction with an alien intervention/revelation, and aided by a sentient (e.g., demonically-supercharged) artificial intelligence, form a new ecumenical religious system that will be filled with lying signs and wonders (2 Thess. 2:9-11). It will be powerfully deceptive.
Those people who remain after the Rapture and after the Gog-Magog War will be swept up into this new religion like a tsunami. Those who refuse to go along with this will feel the sharp edge of the sword to the neck. This new version of an ancient Babylonian ecumenism will become the most intolerant belief system ever devised.
“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.” Revelation 17:6
The NIV states that John was ‘astonished’. The ESV records it as ‘marvelled greatly’. The NASB states it as ‘wondered greatly’. Thus, based upon that context, along with the other translations, we dismiss number one from the possible definitions from Greek Lexicon here since John is not proposing that this is a positive/wonderful thing.
Apparently, this is something that really blew John away, which is saying a lot, considering all he had already been witness too. The angel goes on to tell him about what the Mystery is:
And the angel said unto me, Wherefore didst thou marvel? I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns. The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder… Revelation 17:7-8
So what is Mystery-Babylon? Unlike the beast, she is not a government. She rides the beast:
She sits on many waters; meaning she is global. Verse 15 confirms this. (vs. 1)
Kings have committed fornication with her, and the people of the world have been made drunk by the wine of her fornication; meaning mankind has not only gotten drunk but has received “the bite”, by her addictive lies. ( 2) (“the bite”= alcoholic term for hopelessly addicted)
She sits upon the ‘scarlet covered beast’ full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns, meaning, she fully embraces a plurality of gods and beliefs, and implemented by the Antichrist’s governmental system. ( 3)
She herself, is wrapped in purple and scarlet, holding a golden cup full of abominations, meaning she will be greatly lavished (this system) with great wealth and holds to this diabolical lie that tolerates everything, except Jesus Christ. ( 4)
And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. Revelation 17:5
She is called ‘Mystery’, which means she is not literal Babylon, but a symbolic picture of representing the ‘Babylonian’ system of control in which has enslaved the world from the beginning.
She is called “Mother of Harlots and Abominations of the earth”, meaning she is the originator of all false doctrines. Every evil and insidious religion, doctrine, belief system have their roots in her, regardless of where they are, or who started them.
