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 rumours of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all[a] 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.

DAILY CHRISTIAN BIBLICAL QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
UNDERSTANDING REV. 20-22
QUESTION: Please help me understand the following. You state that only the Church Age Saints will live in the New Jerusalem during the Millennium. And that the Church Age Saints will be able to go back and forth between the New Jerusalem and earth. What scripture supports that those Saints will be able to go back and forth? Is the New Heaven and New Earth created after the Millennium? Also, when the New Heavens and New Earth are created will the Church Age Saints still reside in the New Jerusalem or will they live on the New Earth? Does scripture give insight what they will be doing (work, play, create, govern etc.) with regard to the New Heavens and New Earth? Thank you for any clarification on the above.
ANSWER: There is much confusion surrounding the New Jerusalem and New Heavens and New Earth that arises from what I believe is a misunderstanding of the chronology in Rev. 20-22.
Here’s a quick time line as I see it. In Rev. 20 the first 6 verses deal with the time at the beginning of the Millennium just after the Lord’s return. Then verses 7-15 skip to the End of the Millennium to deal with the final disposition of Satan and the resurrection of unbelievers. In Rev. 21:1 John went back to the beginning of the Millennium to describe the New Jerusalem which he saw coming down out of heaven. To let us know he was backtracking, John opened chapter 21 with a direct quote from Isaiah 65:17 which describes Earth at the beginning of the Millennium. When the Lord returns, the Earth will be in total ruin from the terrible destruction of the Great Tribulation and will have to be restored to the condition it was in when Adam was created to make the promises of Isaiah 65 and other places come true for Israel. The first 5 verses of chapter 22 are a summary of Ezekiel 47:1-12, another view of Earth at the beginning of the Millennium, confirming that chapters 21 and 22 describe the Millennium, not eternity.
Also, the word translated “new” in John’s quote of Isaiah 65:17 can also mean refreshed or renewed. It refers to the time Jesus called the renewal of all things in Matt. 19:28 and Peter mentioned in Acts 3:21.This will take place at the time of the 2nd Coming.
Following the Rapture, the Church will dwell in the New Jerusalem forever. All we know about what we’ll be doing is that in some way we’ll be assisting the Lord in His millennial reign. The Bible offers no information or detail about life in eternity. As for the saints going back and forth, Jesus went back and forth, and 1 John 3:2 says we’ll be like Him.
FURTHER Understanding Rev. 20-22
QUESTION: The question you recently answered on Revelation 22 reminded me I had one, too. The timing of things confuses me. It looks like we’ve had the Great White Throne Judgment in Revelation 20. So why are there still liars & murders & idolaters outside the gates of the city? Is the city the New Jerusalem?
We are grateful to you for all your help, and grateful to the Lord for you.
ANSWER: A careful reading of Rev. 20 shows that Verses 7-15 are a parenthetical insert that John used to carry the dispositions of Satan and the unbelievers to their final conclusion while he was on the subject. Then in Rev. 21 he returned to the beginning of the Millennium to describe the New Jerusalem, home of the Church.
There are several clues in the text that support this view. First, Rev. 20:7 begins, “when the thousand years are over” indicating that John has skipped to the end of the Millennium. Second, Rev. 21:1 is a direct quote from Isaiah 65:17 where the context is clearly Israel’s Kingdom Age, aka the Millennium, and third the first 5 verses of Rev.22 are a summary of Ezekiel 47, which is also about the Kingdom Age in Israel. And then there’s the mention of the trees growing a different fruit each month in verse 2. This reference to time confirms that John was not talking about eternity, which by definition is the absence of time.
Also, the word translated new in John’s quote of Isaiah 65:17 can also mean refreshed or renewed. It refers to the time Jesus called the renewal of all things in Matt. 19:28 and Peter mentioned in Acts 3:21.This will take place at the time of the 2nd Coming.
In my opinion the traditional view that Rev. 21-22 are about our eternal state is incorrect. Rev. 21 describes the New Jerusalem during the Millennium and the first 5 verses of Rev. 22 are about Israel during the Millennium. The Bible does not address Eternity except to say there is one.

It is being reported that Iranian vessels are blocking the Front Altair vessel from being moved, by surrounding it. In the last few minutes further Iranian vessels have arrived.
Currently, Iran is not letting tugboats take one of the stricken boats back to port.
Further, there are rumors that sailors rescued and then taken by Iran could be detained, especially if any of them saw what had transpired to cause the damage to the boat.

A large swarm of Iranian patrol boats now blocking access.
I am told the US Navy is in discussions as to how to respond.
President Donald Trump accused Iran of attacking two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman, saying the U.S. had evidence to support the allegation
Officials now say an American drone spotted Iranian vessels closing in on the tankers before Iran fired a surface-to-air missile at it
The rocket missed its target and splashed into the water
The tankers were hit by explosions Thursday, erupting one in a giant fireball
‘Iran did do it,’ Trump said on ‘Fox & Friends,’ adding: ‘We don’t take it lightly’
‘They didn’t want the evidence left behind. They don’t know that we have things that we can detect in the dark that work very well,’ the president said
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also accused Iran of causing the blasts
Tehran rejected that claim, saying they were trying to help rescue the crews
One tanker was Japanese-owned; Prime Minister Shinzo Abe condemed it after talking with Trump but didn’t explicitly blame Iran
The UN secretary-general has called for a UN-led investigation
Iran fired a surface-to-air missile at an American drone flying over the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, but missed, military sources revealed Friday afternoon.
The launch came hours before an attack on two oil tankers that the U.S. blames on the Islamic republic.
The Pentagon routinely flies unmanned drone aircraft like the MQ-9 Reaper drone used Thursday to monitor Iran’s military patrols in the Gulf.
CNN reported that the missile fell into the water harmlessly.
A U.S. official told the cable network that the drone was able to observe Iranian ships approaching the tankers. It’s unclear whether the drone’s operator was able to see the attack on the vessels.
The same official told CNN that in recent days an Iranian missile, fired by Houthi rebels, shot down a different U.S. Reaper drone in the Red Sea.
President Donald Trump accused Iran on Friday of attacking the oil tankers and warned Tehran that he doesn’t take the aggressive move lightly.
‘Iran did do it,’ Trump said on ‘Fox & Friends’ when during a phone interview with the morning cable news show.
The Pentagon flew an MQ-9 Reaper drone like this one over the Gulf of Oman Friday and saw Iranian boats converging on a pair of oil tankers that wre later targeted by explosive mines; Iran fired a surface-to-air missile at the drone but missed
He advised Iran’s mullahs that the U.S. could see evidence of the attack, citing grainy video footage released Thursday that the American military claimed shows Iranian vessels retrieving an unexploded mine from one of the damaged ships.
‘You saw the boat, one to have mines didn’t explode and it has Iran written all over it. Successfully took the mine off the boat and that was exposed. They didn’t want the evidence left behind. They don’t know that we have things that we can detect in the dark that work very well. We have that. It was them that did it,’ Trump said.
But Trump didn’t offer details when pressed on how the United States would respond.
‘We’re gonna see. We’re gonna see how to stop,’ he said.
‘We’ll see what happens. We don’t take it lightly, that I can tell you,’ he added.
He also argued U.S. relations were better with Iran than under former President Barack Obama and claimed Irans hadn’t shouted ‘death to America’ lately.
I don’t think they’ve talked the same way when President Obama signed agreement, they were saying death to America, they were having good time at his expense,’ Trump said. ‘They haven’t screamed “Death to America” lately.’
Trump discussed the attacks in a phone call Friday with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The White House said Trump thanked Abe for helping facilitate talks with Iran.
Abe later condemned the attack on the tanker, which is Japanese-operated.
Abe told reporters: ‘Japan adamantly condemns the act that threatened a Japanese ship, no matter who attacked.’
On Thursday, U.S. Central Command released a video claiming to show Iran removing a mine from one of the oil tankers hit by an explosion in the Gulf of Yemen – the evidence Trump referred to in his interview.
Washington accused Iran of causing the two blasts, which left one of the vessels burning in a fireball and sparked a fresh exchange of angry rhetoric in an already tense Middle East standoff.
The footage published by the U.S. military purports to show Iranian vessels returning to the stricken Japanese-owned tanker Kokuta Courageous and removing an unexploded limpet mine.
Iran claimed it had sent a search and rescue team to bring the Kokuta’s crew to safety, but Washington D.C. argues their real intention was to hide Iranian involvement in the blasts.
Tehran dismissed the U.S. claims, calling them ‘baseless’ and accusing America of ‘sabotage diplomacy’ and ‘Iranophobia.’
The shipping firms affected are continuing their investigations amid claims that one of the crews saw a ‘flying object’ before an explosion on board.
The explosions, which forced 44 sailors on the Kokuta and the Norwegian-owned MT Front Altair to abandon ship, have also sparked fears over the world oil supply after four tankers were targeted in similar blasts last month.
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said Friday that an independent investigation should begin to establish who was responsible.
Guterres said he was available to mediate if the parties agreed, but added that ‘at the present moment we don’t see a mechanism of dialogue possible to be in place.’
‘It’s very important to know the truth and it’s very important that responsibilities are clarified,’ he stold reporters. ‘Obviously that can only be done if there is an independent entity that verifies those facts.’
UK foreign secretary warns of ‘unintended catastrophic’ effects
UK foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has warned of an ‘unintended catastrophe’ in the Middle East as tensions ratchet up between the U.S. and Iran. Mr Hunt said Britain backed the U.S. in pointing the finger at Iran over Thursday’s tanker explosions. He said Iranian involvement would be a ‘deeply unwise escalation which poses a real danger to the prospects of peace and stability in the region’. Mr Hunt, a candidate to be Britain’s next Prime Minister, told the BBC today: ‘This is deeply worrying and comes at a time of already huge tension. ‘I have been in contact with (Mr) Pompeo and, while we will be making our own assessment soberly and carefully, our starting point is obviously to believe U.S. allies. ‘At the moment both sides in this dispute think that the other side doesn’t want war and the risk you have is that then they do something provocative that leads to catastrophic consequences that weren’t intended.’And so it is a very dangerous situation.’ Downing Street earlier called the suspected attacks ‘completely unacceptable’.

TOP GENERALS IN IDF TO PUSH FOR ‘SERIOUS MILITARY CAMPAIGN’ IN GAZA
Top generals in the IDF are expected to push for a much stronger response to rocket fire and arson balloons from the Gaza Strip after fresh attacks in recent days, Channel 12 reported Friday.
Citing a senior military source, Channel 12’s veteran military analyst Roni Daniel said Israel was “on the verge of a serious military campaign,” and said the IDF was considering ending its policy of warning occupants of buildings ahead of airstrikes, even if it causes casualties.
“Everything is hanging by a very thin thread and the situation could change dramatically,” the source said.
However, political analysts noted that it was unlikely that the government would authorize a major military campaign ahead of the elections set for September.
The warnings come after a fresh surge in violence, including two nights of rocket attacks and retaliatory air force strikes, and a wave of arson balloons sent into Israel.
Palestinians rioting on the Gaza border Friday launched dozens of arson balloons into Israel, setting off at least 7 fires near border communities.
Several thousand Palestinians gathered along the border for weekly protests, with several hundred taking part in violent riots. Rioters threw explosive devices and rocks at troops and also tried to storm the fence in one place.
Three Palestinians briefly breached the fence in one spot before returning to Gaza, Israel Radio reported.
Troops responded with tear gas and live fire in some cases. The Hamas-run Gaza health ministry said 46 people were wounded.
The balloons sparked at least 7 blazes, including two large ones near Kibbutz Nahal Oz and Kibbutz Kfar Aza. Another fire raged in the Be’eri nature reserve. Firefighting teams and local residents managed to extinguish them, the fire service said.
Israeli Air Force jets carried out multiple airstrikes in the Strip early Friday, hours after a rocket hit a religious school in southern Israel. The Israeli military said in a statement that fighter jets and other aircraft attacked “several terror targets, including terror infrastructure in military compounds.”
The rocket attacks led to growing calls among politicians for a major military operation, including assassinating leaders of Hamas.
Iranian forces in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday fired a missile at a US drone, hours before an alleged attack by Iran against two tankers in the area.
The surface-to-air missile was fired from a boat and missed its target, a US official told CNN on Friday.
The MQ-9 drone had spotted the Iranian forces approaching the tankers, the official said. He did not say if the aircraft had seen the actual attacks take place.
The unnamed official added that an American reaper drone had been downed in the Red Sea in the days before the attack, likely by Houthi rebels equipped with an Iranian missile.
Tensions between Washington and Tehran have skyrocketed following the incident.
On Friday, US President Donald Trump blamed Iran for the sabotage,calling the country “a nation of terror” and saying the attack had “Iran written all over it.”
Calling into “Fox & Friends,” Trump said of the Thursday attacks, “Iran did do it.” He cited video purporting to show an Iranian boat removing what the US says is an unexploded mine from one of the vessels.
“You know they did it because you saw the boat,” Trump said. “I guess one of the mines didn’t explode and it’s probably got essentially Iran written all over it.”
Trump also warned Iran not to close off the strategic Strait of Hormuz, saying if it is closed it won’t be closed for long.
“They’re not going to be closing it. It’s not going to be closed, it’s not going to be closed for long and they know it. They’ve been told in very strong terms,” Trump said.
Iran recently produced a program on its state television channel demonstrating that the government is currently practicing missile attacks, with the purpose of carrying out actual attacks on Israel…. The video excerpt included in the television broadcast showed how the operations the Iranians are striving to put into action will bombard Tel Aviv.
From the perspective of the Iranian leaders, if they continue to increase their threats against Israel, the United States will be pressured to change its strategy and lift pressure that has been placed on the clerical establishment, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), and its elite branch, the Quds Force.
It is an unacceptable double-standard that the United Nations and the international community have been, and continue to be, silent about Iran’s threats against Israeli citizens. If the situation were reversed and if Israel threatened to annihilate Iran, the international community would be up in arms, and quick to defend Iran. Through political and economic pressure, the ruling mullahs of Iran should be held accountable by the international community for endangering global security and regional stability.
The Iranian government continues to defy international standards, as it refuses to act as a rational and constructive state, even apart from its repeated malign behavior in the Gulf of Oman this week.
Iran’s Supreme Guide Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who enjoys the final say in all of Iran’s domestic and foreign policies, recently proclaimed to the youth in Iran that they will soon witness the demise of Israel and all of American civilization. This announcement was confirmed on the Supreme Leader’s official website.
Khamenei made Iran’s intentions clear while meeting with students. “You young people,” he declared, “should be assured that you will witness the demise of the enemies of humanity, meaning the degenerate American civilization, and the demise of Israel”.
Iran also recently produced a program on its state television channel demonstrating that the government is currently practicing missile attacks, with the purpose of carrying out actual attacks on Israel. The video excerpt included in the television broadcast showed how the operations the Iranians are striving to put into action will bombard Tel Aviv. The video concludes with images of Israeli citizens covered in white sheets, indicating great tragedy for Israel, and a victory for the Islamic Republic.
The Deputy Commander of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), Hossein Salami, also recently threatened on Iran’s Channel 2 TV that Israel is “vulnerable and bringing itself closer to death”.
Salami made the strategy of the Iranian government vehemently clear by stating, “Our strategy is to erase Israel from the global political map. And, it seems that, considering the evil that Israel is doing, it is bringing itself closer to that.” In addition, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei recently posted a Twitter tirade attacking Israel. It stated that “the Zionist regime will perish in the not so far future.”
Aside from their proclaimed hatred of the country, there is, behind these increased threats, a political motive. From the perspective of the Iranian leaders, if they continue to increase their threats against Israel, the United States will be pressured to change its strategy and lift pressure that has been placed on the clerical establishment, the IRGC, and its elite branch, the Quds Force.
Since its establishment in 1979, the modus operandi of the Islamic Republic of Iran has been to pursue aggressive violent policies instead of attempting diplomatic initiatives in the Middle East.
The second reason behind Iran’s increasing threats against Israel is linked to one of the core pillars and revolutionary ideals of the Islamic Republic: destroying the Jewish state. It is also one of the religious prophecies of the founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran, Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, and his successor, the current Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, that Israel will be eventually erased from the face of the earth.
As Iran’s theocratic establishment believes that the Supreme Leader is Allah’s representative on earth, whatever words or desires the Supreme Leader utters are considered wishes, which must be brought to life by Allah’s true believers. With this religious drive, the undercurrent of hatred toward Israel is only amplified: each attack against the country is considered a holy act.
It is an unacceptable double-standard that the United Nations and the international community have been, and continue to be, silent about Iran’s threats against Israeli citizens. If the situation were reversed and if Israel threatened to annihilate Iran, the international community would be up in arms, and quick to defend Iran. Through political and economic pressure, the ruling mullahs of Iran should be held accountable by the international community for endangering global security and regional stability.
This week we learned from a brave whistleblower that Pinterest, a site known primarily for recipes and home decorating ideas, is blocking content from websites that their Orwellian-monikered Trust and Safety team in San Francisco find offensive—by dishonestly labeling them as po*n sites. PJ Media is one of several conservative sites being blocked by the platform.
What was revealed at Pinterest this week, however, is just the tip of the censorship iceberg—and things will likely only get worse as our nation becomes increasingly polarized and the Big Brothers of Big Tech become more emboldened and less secretive about their hostility toward conservatives.
First, let’s review what we learned this week. Project Veritas highlighted the blacklisting issues involved, which include:
Insider: Search Term “Christian” Won’t Auto-Complete, Others Can’t Trend, No Notifications, or Recommendations
Pinterest Blacklisted Pro-Life Group LiveAction.org, Classified as “Pornography,” Cannot Link to Site
Leaked “Sensitive Terms List” Includes “bible verses” and “christian easter”
Ben Shapiro Commentary Censored in “zero tolerance moment,” Slack Messages Reveal
Planned Parenthood Undercover Videos Marked as “harmful” Conspiracy
I navigated over to Pinterest—which went public in April of this year, raising $1.5 billion in its initial offering—to find out if PJM has been blacklisted and indeed it appears it has. I tried to “pin” several of our articles there, including Stephen Green’s completely innocuous and apolitical review of Apple’s new monitor stand and sure enough, Pinterest blocked it due to “inappropriate content.”
Pinterest engineer—pardon me, former engineer, he’s now been fired—Eric Cochran, the courageous whistleblower, leaked internal Slack messages and other documentation from Pinterest showing that several other conservative sites, including Live Action, Zero Hedge, and TeaParty.org, were on the “po*n domain” list, their content blocked from the platform.
Pinterest, like other Big Tech bullies who have gotten caught censoring conservatives, issued a whoops-we-made-a-mistake statement and took Live Action off the po*n list. Then they reversed their decision and banned the site again, saying there were inadvertently put on the po*n list when they should have been on the “conspiracy” and ant-vaccination lists (as if that makes it better).
If you think Pinterest is alone in this dishonest blacklisting of conservative sites, I’ve got some swamp land to sell you. As we’ve seen in report after report after report after report, the social media platforms—owned and run almost exclusively by far-left ideologues who think “conservative” is a synonym for Hitler—are quietly working behind the scenes to silence opinions they find detestable, and like Pinterest, they’re using sneaky little coded labels to keep conservatives off their platforms. On the front lines of the war to control the marketplace of ideas are the issues of abortion and LGBTQ rights. The cultural and sexual revolutionaries will brook no dissent on these two issues, believing that those on the conservative side deserve not only censure but exclusion from the marketplace. Think I’m exaggerating? Here’s what Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, told the Des Moines Register this week:
I think there are some issues that have such moral clarity that we have, as a society, decided that the other side is not acceptable. Imagine saying that it’s okay to appoint a judge who’s racist, or antisemitic, or homophobic, telling, asking someone to appoint someone who takes away basic human rights of any group of people in America. I don’t think that those are political issues anymore… There is no moral equivalency when you come to racism, and I do not believe there is a moral equivalency when it comes to changing laws that deny women reproductive freedom.[Emphasis added]
In other words, if you disagree with Gillibrand, who believes that mothers and doctors should be able to kill unborn children up until the moment of birth (and maybe even after), you should not be allowed to work in this country. Coastal elites like Gillibrand and the Trust and Safety official from Pinterest think the views of conservatives are so beyond the pale that they must be silenced, banned from the public square. Moreover, they’ve declared these issues beyond debate, announcing that a “consensus” has been arrived at and therefore there is no need for further discussion. Never mind that half the country disagrees with them.
I’ve said this many times before and I’ll continue to repeat the warning: in the very near future, we’ll see draconian workplace rules that preclude religious and social conservatives being employed in a variety of fields, especially those that require professional credentialing or government licensure. That’s what Gillibrand is hinting at with her conflation of racism and pro-life views. In her view, there is no difference, and just like we would not employ an openly racist teacher or doctor, no one should employ an individual who believes that pre-born children should not be slaughtered. And the same goes for those who do not enthusiastically applaud every new iteration of the totalitarian sexual revolution.
There’s no easy way out of this mess—perhaps no way out at all. All of the solutions that have thus far been proposed—breaking up the tech monopolies, removing federal Section 230 protections from social media platforms, and creating alternatives to them—are fraught with possible unintended consequences that could make things even worse. Whistle-blowers like Cochran offer some hope. Perhaps there are more who will come forward to expose what’s going on in the board rooms and on Slack channels at the Big Tech giants. And maybe, just maybe, they’ll realise that marginalising half of America is bad for business and change their ways.
Don’t hold your breath.
Moscow and Brussels are keen on quickly extending the use of the ruble and the euro to bilateral payments, the Russian Finance Minister said, after a meeting with the European Commission for Energy Union’s vice-president.
During their talks in Moscow this week, Russia’s Anton Siluanov and commissioner Maros Sefcovic, discussed switching to the national currencies for payments for energy resources.
“We have agreed now to study this issue in more detail at the level of specialists and to set up working bodies for this decision,” Siluanov said on Friday, as cited by TASS.
The minister’s spokesman, Andrey Lavrov, earlier said wider use of the ruble and the euro is beneficial for both sides as it can mitigate risks for Russian and European businesses. He added that the working group will look into the practical steps of using national currencies in bilateral trade.
Meanwhile the European Commission told TASS that the idea to create a special governing body is being considered; however, there’s no final decision on the matter yet.
Last year, the EC came up with an initiative to boost the role of the euro in the strategic energy sector, in an apparent bid to challenge the dominance of the US dollar.
The initiative met with Moscow’s support, as Russia has been steadily decreasing the share of the greenback in its trade. In an exclusive interview with RT, Russian Economic Development Minister Maxim Oreshkin stressed that it seems irrelevant to continue trading with its EU partners in dollars, given that both the European countries and Russia aren’t dollar-based.
“I believe we should think about switching at least to the euro as a more common currency, both for Russians and the Europeans,” Oreshkin told RT in December.
FACEBOOK’S SECRET ‘HATE AGENT’ FORMULA LEAKED, COURT TRANSCRIPTS EXPOSE FACEBOOK’S VIEW THAT USER PRIVACY IS NON-EXISTANT
An internal Facebook document reveals that the social media giant monitors its users’ offline behavior as part of how the company determines whether a person should be classified as a “Hate Agent,” according to Breitbart’s Allum Bokhari who has reviewed the document.
Titled “Hate Agent Policy Review,” the document reveals that Facebook employs a series of “signals” which include a person’s behavior both on and off the platform. Once determined to be a “hate agent,” a person is banned from the platform.
If you praise the wrong individual, interview them, or appear at events alongside them, Facebook may categorize you as a “hate agent.”
Facebook may also categorize you as a hate agent if you self-identify with or advocate for a “Designated Hateful Ideology,” if you associate with a “Designated Hate Entity” (one of the examples cited by Facebook as a “hate entity” includes Islam critic Tommy Robinson), or if you have “tattoos of hate symbols or hate slogans.” (The document cites no examples of these, but the media and “anti-racism” advocacy groups increasingly label innocuous items as “hate symbols,” including a cartoon frog and the “OK” hand sign.)
Facebook will also categorize you as a hate agent for possession of “hate paraphernalia,” although the document provides no examples of what falls into this category. –Breitbart
Facebook may even brand someone a hate agent for “statements made in private but later made public,” according to the report.
This piece by @LibertarianBlue is insane.@Facebook monitors your OFFLINE behavior to decide if you’re a “Hate Agent” via:
— who you were seen with
— comments about immigration
— your tattoos
— if you are NEUTRAL about someone
— things you say IN PRIVATEhttps://t.co/qXnWyRkFOp

Bokhari also notes from his previous reports that Facebook categorized right-wing pundit Paul Joseph Watson as “hateful” in part because he interviewed British activist Tommy Robinson on his YouTube channel. Similarly, prominent conservatives Candace Owens and Brigitte Gabrielare on the list, along with UK politicians Marie Waters and Carl Benjamin.
The Benjamin addition reveals that Facebook may categorize you as a hate agent merely for speaking neutrally about individuals and organizations that the social network considers hateful. In the document, Facebook tags Benjamin with a “hate agent” signal for “neutral representation of John Kinsman, member of Proud Boys” on October 21 last year.
Facebook also accuses Benjamin, a classical liberal and critic of identity politics, as “representing the ideology of an ethnostate” for a post in which he calls out an actual advocate of an ethnostate. –Breitbart
A new report by The Intercept has unearthed some stunning quotes from Facebook’s lawyers as the controversial social media giant recently battled litigation in California courts related to the Cambridge Analytica data sharing scandal. The report notes that statements from Facebook’s counsel “reveal one of the most stunning examples of corporate doublespeak certainly in Facebook’s history” concerning privacy and individual users’ rights.
Contrary to CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s last testimony before Congress which included the vague promise, “We believe that everyone around the world deserves good privacy controls,” the latest courtroom statements expose in shockingly unambiguous terms that Facebook actually sees privacy as legally “nonexistent” — to use The Intercept’s apt description of what’s in the courtroom transcript — up until now largely ignored in media commentary.
The courtroom debate was first reported by Law360, and captures the transcribed back and forth between Facebook lawyer Orin Snyder of Gibson Dunn & Crutcher and US District Judge Vince Chhabria.
The Intercept cites multiple key sections of the transcript from the May 29, 2019 court proceedings showing Snyder arguing essentially something the complete opposite of Zuckerberg’s public statements on data privacy, specifically, on the idea that users have any reasonable expectation of privacy at all.
Facebook’s lawyer argued:
There is no privacy interest, because by sharing with a hundred friends on a social media platform, which is an affirmative social act to publish, to disclose, to share ostensibly private information with a hundred people, you have just, under centuries of common law, under the judgment of Congress, under the SCA, negated any reasonable expectation of privacy.
As The Intercept commented of the blunt remarks, “So not only is it Facebook’s legal position that you’re not entitled to any expectation of privacy, but it’s your fault that the expectation went poof the moment you started using the site (or at least once you connected with 100 Facebook “friends”).”
Judge Chhabria took issue with the “binary” nature of Facebook’s conception of privacy in stating, “like either you have a full expectation of privacy, or you have no expectation of privacy at all,” and put the following scenario to Facebook’s legal team:
If I share [information] with ten people, that doesn’t eliminate my expectation of privacy. It might diminish it, but it doesn’t eliminate it. And if I share something with ten people on the understanding that the entity that is helping me share it will not further disseminate it to a thousand companies, I don’t understand why I don’t have — why that’s not a violation of my expectation of privacy.
Snyder’s response was illuminating regarding Facebook’s approach to users’ privacy:
Let me give you a hypothetical of my own. I go into a classroom and invite a hundred friends. This courtroom. I invite a hundred friends, I rent out the courtroom, and I have a party. And I disclose — And I disclose something private about myself to a hundred people, friends and colleagues. Those friends then rent out a 100,000-person arena, and they rebroadcast those to 100,000 people. I have no cause of action because by going to a hundred people and saying my private truths, I have negated any reasonable expectation of privacy, because the case law is clear.
And a another key question from what appeared an incredulous Judge Chhabria: “If Facebook promises not to disseminate anything that you send to your hundred friends, and Facebook breaks that promise and disseminates your photographs to a thousand corporations, that would not be a serious privacy invasion?”
Reflecting a viewpoint that Facebook considers almost no scenario at all a potential “privacy invasion,” Snyder responded:
“Facebook does not consider that to be actionable, as a matter of law under California law.”
Thus Facebook admitted in court that even when the company gives a user the impression it will not share private information which that user has not authorized for public view, should the platform violate this, it is still not illegal nor does it violate Facebook’s own standards.
“Fatah regularly exerts heavy pressure on Christians not to report the acts of violence and vandalism from which they frequently suffer, as such publicity could damage the PA’s image as an actor capable of protecting the lives and property of the Christian minority under its rule…. That image could have negative repercussions for the massive international, and particularly European, aid the PA receives.” — Dr. Edy Cohen, Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies.
Considered another way, the bread and butter of the PA and its supporters, media and others, seems to be to portray the Palestinians as victims of unjust aggression and discrimination from Israel. This narrative could be jeopardised if the international community learned that Palestinians themselves were persecuting fellow Palestinians — solely on account of religion.
“Far more important to the Palestinian Authority than arresting those who assault Christian sites is keeping such incidents out of the mainstream media. And they are very successful in this regard. Indeed, only a handful of smaller local outlets bothered to report on these latest break-ins. The mainstream international media ignored them altogether.” — Dr. Edy Cohen, Israel Today.
As Justus Reid Weiner, a lawyer and scholar well-acquainted with the region explains, “The systematic persecution of Christian Arabs living in Palestinian areas is being met with nearly total silence by the international community, human rights activists, the media and NGOs… In a society where Arab Christians have no voice and no protection it is no surprise that they are leaving.”
At a time when Christians throughout the Muslim world are suffering from a variety of persecution, the plight of Palestinian Christians is seldom heard.
It exists. Open Doors, a human rights group that follows the persecution of Christians, notes that Palestinian Christians suffer from a “high” level of persecution, the source of which is, in its words, “Islamic Oppression”:
“Those who convert to Christianity from Islam, however, face the worst Christian persecution and it is difficult for them to safely participate in existing churches. In the West Bank they are threatened and put under great pressure, in Gaza their situation is so dangerous that they live their Christian faith in utmost secrecy….The influence of radical Islamic ideology is rising, and historical churches have to be diplomatic in their approach towards Muslims.”
Considered another way, the bread and butter of the PA and its supporters, media and others, seems to be to portray the Palestinians as victims of unjust aggression and discrimination from Israel. This narrative could be jeopardised if the international community learned that Palestinians themselves were persecuting fellow Palestinians — solely on account of religion. It might be hard to muster sympathy for a supposedly oppressed people when one realizes that they themselves are doing the oppressing of the minorities in their midst.
So sensitive to this potential difficulty, “PA officials exert pressure on local Christian to not report such incidents, which threaten to unmask the Palestinian Authority as yet another Middle East regime beholden to a radical Islamic ideology,” Cohen writes in another report.
“Far more important to the Palestinian Authority than arresting those who assault Christian sites is keeping such incidents out of the mainstream media. And they are very successful in this regard. Indeed, only a handful of smaller local outlets bothered to report on these latest break-ins. The mainstream international media ignored them altogether.”
The sad and simple fact, by all counts, is that Christianity is on the verge of disappearing in the place of its birth, including Bethlehem. As Justus Reid Weiner, a lawyer and scholar well-acquainted with the region, explains:
“The systematic persecution of Christian Arabs living in Palestinian areas is being met with nearly total silence by the international community, human rights activists, the media and NGOs… In a society where Arab Christians have no voice and no protection it is no surprise that they are leaving.”
POPE FRANCIS COMMANDS THE WORLD’S ENERGY ELITE TO THE VATICAN TO FORCE WORLD GOVERNMENTS TO INSTITUTE A GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE CARBON TAX
In an address to energy executives at the end of a two-day meeting, Pope Francis also called for “open, transparent, science-based and standardised” reporting of climate risk and a “radical energy transition” away from carbon to save the planet. The Vatican said attendees of the closed-door meeting at its Academy of Sciences, a follow-up to one a year ago, included the CEOs of Royal Dutch Shell, Eni, BP, Repsol, Conoco Phillips, Chevron, ExxonMobil, and executives of investment funds
Pope Francis said on Friday that carbon pricing is “essential” to stem global warming – his clearest statement yet in support of penalising polluters – and appealed to climate change deniers to listen to science.
Many people, including Roman Catholics, are unaware that the Catholic pope is also the king of Vatican City, over which he commands his kingdom through the operation of something called the Holy See. From his dual seat of religious leader over the world’s Catholics and ruler of the nation of Vatican City, Pope Francis is able to fulfil the prophecies of Revelation 17 and 18 that show Mystery, Babylon to be both governed by both a religious and political ruler. So when King Jorge Mario Bergoglio issues an order, the global elite bow before him, as we see in today’s article on the pope issuing his demands to the CEOs of every major energy company on earth.
“And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come. And saying, Alas, alas, that great city, that was clothed in fine linen, and purple, and scarlet, and decked with gold, and precious stones, and pearls!”
Revelation 18:9,10,16 (KJV)
Why is the pope so concerned about a carbon tax? Because Rome has always followed the money and will always follow the money. At Jesus First Coming, we see that there was in place a global taxing, so that tells us that there likely will be a global tax in place at His Second Coming. And a carbon tax is the only type of tax that can be applied to all nations equally. You just can’t get around that pesky, old King James Bible, can you? Nope.
“And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.” Luke 2:1-3 (KJV)
Don’t you kinda feel sorry for the apostles in the bible? They must have been some kind of chumps to only preach the gospel, and only work to see souls saved, when they could have been out getting insanely wealthy by trading and dealing with world leaders like Jorge here. No, that was sarcasm. The apostles in the Bible have nothing in common with the Roman whore of Revelation 17 and 18, but they would recognise Pope Francis in a second. He’s the “other guy” they warned us to watch out for. Are we listening?
Pope Francis backs carbon pricing to stem global warming and appeals to deniers
FROM REUTERS: In an address to energy executives at the end of a two-day meeting, Pope Francis also called for “open, transparent, science-based and standardised” reporting of climate risk and a “radical energy transition” away from carbon to save the planet.
Carbon pricing, via taxes or emissions trading schemes, is used by many governments to make energy consumers pay for the costs of using the fossil fuels that contribute to global warming, and to spur investment in low-carbon technology.
The Vatican said attendees of the closed-door meeting at its Academy of Sciences, a follow-up to one a year ago, included the CEOs of Royal Dutch Shell, Eni, BP, Repsol, Conoco Phillips, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, and executives of investment funds.
“Collectively, these leaders will influence the planet’s future, perhaps more than any in the world,” said Father John Jenkins, president of the U.S. University of Notre Dame, which organised the meeting.
A small group of demonstrators gathered outside a Vatican gate. One held a sign reading “Dear Oil CEOs – Think of Your Children”.
Francis, who has made many calls for environmental protection and has clashed over climate change with leaders such as U.S. President Donald Trump, said the ecological crisis “threatens the very future of the human family”.
“WE HAVE FAILED TO LISTEN”
He criticised those who, like Trump, doubt the science that shows human activity is causing the earth to heat up.
“For too long we have collectively failed to listen to the fruits of scientific analysis, and doomsday predictions can no longer be met with irony or disdain,” Francis said. Discussion of climate change and energy transition must be rooted in “the best scientific research available today”.
Trump, asked in an interview if he accepted climate science, said last week: “I believe there’s a change in weather, and I think it changes both ways.” He has said the United States will withdraw from the Paris accord, a 2016 global agreement to fight climate change.
Pope Francis, who wrote an encyclical – a significant document on Church teaching – in 2015 on protection of the environment, and strongly supports the Paris accord, said time was running out to meet its goals.
“Faced with a climate emergency, we must take action accordingly, in order to avoid perpetrating a brutal act of injustice towards the poor and future generations,” he said. “We do not have the luxury of waiting for others to step forward, or of prioritising short-term economic benefits.”
Oil companies have come under growing pressure from investors and activists to meet the Paris goals.
Companies including Royal Dutch Shell, BP and Total have laid out plans to expand their renewable energy business and reduce emissions. Critics say such gestures are minor parts of businesses that overwhelmingly depend on an economy that continues to pollute.
BP Chief Executive Bob Dudley said after the meeting that “the world needs to take urgent action to get us on a more sustainable path and it is critical that everyone plays their part – companies and investors, governments and individuals”. READ MORE:
