ADMINISTRATOR MATTHEW 24, MARK 21, AND LUKE 13, WERE SHOULD BE READ IN THE CONTEXT OF JESUS ADDRESS TO THE JEWS AT THAT TIME, BUT ALSO THE FOLLOWING VERSES DIRECTED AT OUR TIME RIGHT NOW. IF MATTHEW 24 IS READ IN THIS CONTEXT THEN WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHERE WE (THE GENTILES) FIT INTO THESE SCRIPTURES – (EXPLANATION LISTED IN THE TWO SHORT ARTICLES BELOW) – Notice that Matthew 24 6-7 address what is currently happening right now, we are on the brink of the RAPTURE.
Matt. 24:6 And ye shall hear of WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
Matt. 24:7 FOR NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
Matt. 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows
DID THE DISCIPLES THINK JESUS WAS TALKING ABOUT THEM?
QUESTION: In Matthew 24, do you think the disciples knew that Jesus was talking to a future group of Jews and not to them? I know it is an end time prophecy, but if I had been one of those disciples I might have thought he was talking to me and my generation.
ANSWER: When Jesus gave this prophecy, 69 weeks of Daniel’s 70 weeks prophecy (Daniel 9:24-27) had just been completed. Daniel had said that after the 69 weeks the Messiah would be executed and the people of a coming ruler would destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. A few days before, Jesus had told them He was going to be arrested and crucified, and then on the third day He would be raised to life (Matt. 20:17-19). And just a few minutes earlier, in Matt. 24:1-2, He said the temple and all its related buildings would be torn down with not one stone remaining on another. It was a repeat of a warning He had given the people of Jerusalem three days previously (Luke 19:41-44).
In spite of all this, the disciples seemed surprised by what He was saying. According to Mark 13:3 Peter, James, John and Andrew took Him aside and asked Him to explain when and how all this would happen. I think they understood Daniel’s 70 Weeks prophecy, but didn’t know there would be a gap of time between the 69th and 70th Weeks, and Jesus didn’t mention one. We know this because after the resurrection the disciples asked if He was now going to restore the kingdom to Israel (Acts 1:6). (It all became clear to them 38 years later when the city and the sanctuary were destroyed without the Abomination of Desolation having taken place.)
Jesus had waited 40 days for the leaders of Israel to recognise that He had fulfilled the unmistakable sign of the prophet Jonah (Matt. 12:39-40) proving that He was their Messiah. Had they done so, the 70th Week of Daniel would have begun, and everything the Lord told the disciples would have happened in their generation. But because they still didn’t believe in Him, Israel was set aside and the clock has been stopped from that day to this one while the Lord takes a people for Himself from among the Gentiles. Once He has taken us, Israel will be restored and the 70th week will finally begin (Acts 15:13-18).
Of course, God the Father knew how everything would unfold, but according to Matt. 24:36 He was the only one. Even the Son, having been limited to human abilities, didn’t know how Israel would respond until after He returned to Heaven. This is why He gave such an ambiguous answer to their question of Acts 1:6. “It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by His own authority” (Acts 1:7).
WHO WAS JESUS TALKING ABOUT?
QUESTION: My question has to deal with the “elect” in the Olivet Discourse. Jesus was indeed talking to a Jewish crowd (his disciples). However, they were also His followers. I’ve taken Matthew 24 to mean that He’s referring mostly to persecution of the Jews in His teaching. However, Luke 21:12, Jesus says, “…You will be brought before kings and ruler’s for my name’s sake.” Jews obviously don’t recognise “His name” as a deity, so clearly Jesus is referring to Christ followers at this point. Historically, both Jews and Christians have been brought before kings and rulers, and been persecuted. So, I guess my question is, “Is Jesus talking to Jews, Christians, or both?” Also, do you believe the elect gathered from the 4 winds are Jews, or all of the Christians?
ANSWER: The difference between the Olivet discourse accounts in Matt. 24 and Mark 13 and the one in Luke 21 is that Luke’s account is the only one that clearly answers all three of the disciples’ questions. Matthew skipped the first question altogether, “When will this happen?” and just addressed the second and third ones, “what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?” (Matt. 24:3). Mark kind of mixed the near and far future together making it difficult to differentiate between the two.
The answer to the first question is contained in Luke 21:12-24 and describes the time between the crucifixion and the destruction of Jerusalem. Therefore in Luke 21:12 the Lord was speaking directly to the disciples, who would soon be brought before kings and rulers for His name’s sake (Mark 13:9 alludes to this.)
As for the elect gathered from the four winds, Matt. 24:31 has the Lord referring to the elect in Heaven, while Mark 13:27 has Him also including the elect on Earth. Both groups will be believers in Jesus, some living and some deceased, some Jewish and some Gentiles, but I don’t believe any of them are part of the Church. The Church does not have to stand firm to the end to be saved as Matt. 24:13 and Mark 13:13 say. Our salvation is guaranteed when we believe (Ephes. 1:13-14). Also, we will have gone in the rapture at least 7 years prior to that time, and will be in the New Jerusalem.

MIDDLE EAST WAR LOOMING THE BUILD UP TO PSALM 83 – ISAIAH 17 AND GOG OF MAGOG WARS EZEKIEL 38:
SOMETHING IS SHAKING: FOUR GALILEE EARTHQUAKES IN ONE DAY
By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz –
The earth trembled and quaked, and the foundations of the mountains shook; they trembled because he was angry. Psalms 18:7 (The Israel Bible™)
Northern Israel was shaken by four small earthquakes in less than 24 hours on Wednesday and though it is impossible to absolutely predict seismic activity, seismologists warn that the region is due for a major shake-up.
The recent earthquakes hint at deeper meanings. One mystic predicted 80 years ago that major earthquakes in Israel would precede the War of Gog and Magog, making the earth-shattering changes necessary to bring the Messiah. And a scientist, seeking to find a historical pattern, discovered a compelling link between earthquakes and prophecy.
The first earthquake hit at around 4:50 a.m., followed by another at around 10:45 p.m..Two more followed at around midnight and 1:30 a.m., all registering aout 4.2 on the Richter Scale with their epicenter approximately 5.5 miles north of Tiberias. Though relatively gentle, the tremors were felt in Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.
Though there were neither reports of injury or damage, earthquakes are cause for concern in Israel which is part of the geologically active Syrian-African Rift, extending from Lebanon to Mozambique. Israel has experienced several small earthquakes in recent years but experts say the region experiences a major quake every 100 years or so. The last major quake struck on July 11, 1927, killing over 400 and leaving “not a house in Jerusalem or Hebron… without some damage,” the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported in the days following.
In his search for a predictive tool, Dr. Shmuel Marco of Tel Aviv University found a correlation to periods of prophecy that could help predict earthquakes in Israel. In 2007, he told the Jerusalem Post that his studies indicated that historically, prophets became active a certain number of years after major earthquakes. These were recorded in the Jordan Valley in the years 31 BCE, 363 CE, 749 CE and 1033 CE.
“So roughly,” says Marco, “we are talking about an interval of every 400 years. If we follow the patterns of nature, a major quake should be expected any time because almost a whole millennium has passed since the last strong earthquake.”
Though clearly traumatic, Rabbi Haim Shvili, a 20th-century Jewish mystic, predicted that the period preceding the Messiah will necessarily be fraught with catastrophic earthquakes in Israel. In his book of predictions concerning the Messiah in 1935 called “Cheshbonot HaGeula” (accountings of the redemption), Rabbi Shvili predicted that these earthquakes will serve several purposes. Pagan temples and monuments to foreign gods throughout Israel will be destroyed. Rabbi Shvili noted that the seismic activity will specifically target Muslim and Christian sites.
These earthquakes will be so severe as to cause geographic changes in the Temple Mount, requiring the construction of an entirely new city. The quakes will cause springs of water to burst forth around Jerusalem, bringing about the prophecy in Zechariah.
“And it shall come to pass in that day that living waters shall go out from Yerushalayim: half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in winter shall it be.” Zechariah 14:8
The earthquake will also split the Mount of Olives in two.
On that day, He will set His feet on the Mount of Olives, near Yerushalayim on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall split across from east to west, and one part of the Mount shall shift to the north and the other to the south, a huge gorge. Zechariah 14:4
The primary function of the earthquakes, according to Rabbi Shvili,will be to instill great fear in the nations rise up against Israel in the end-of-days.
According to Rabbi Shvili, the earthquakes will come during the holiday of Sukkot, coinciding with the War of Gog and Magog. The pre-Messiah war will be so traumatic to all of mankind that Sukkot will become an internationally recognized holiday. This year, Sukkot will begin September 23 so it may be that these recent gentle quakes were a tectonic warm-up, hinting of things-to-come in the upcoming holiday season.
IDF Attacks Syrian Position After Mortar Explodes In Buffer Zone, Israel Lays Down Red Lines For Postwar
The Israeli military attacked a Syrian position on Friday after a mortar shell exploded in the buffer zone between the two countries, in what the military said was a violation of a 1974 ceasefire agreement.
“The IDF attacked a Syrian outpost from which a mortar shell was fired that landed in the buffer zone, east of and close to the fence,” the army said in a statement.
The military said the mortar shell was fired during the ongoing battles between Syrian dictator Bashar Assad’s forces and opposition groups in the area. The army would not say if it believed the shelling from Syria was intentionally directed at the buffer zone or if it was a stray shot from nearby fighting.
The Israel Defense Forces said it would continue to hold Assad’s regime responsible for upholding the 1974 ceasefire agreement between the two countries, which ended the previous year’s Yom Kippur War.
Under the armistice, a demilitarized zone was established between Israel and Syria.
While Israel says this is not its primary goal, the area’s status as a demilitarized zone has made it a de facto safe haven for residents of southern Syria. As a result, tens of thousands of Syrians began fleeing toward this buffer zone to escape a renewed offensive by Assad’s forces, with help from Russia and Iran-backed Shiite militias.
“The IDF is tracking what is happening in Syria and is prepared for a variety of scenarios in order to protect the security situation along the border. The IDF will continue to provide humanitarian aid to residents of the area in Syrian territory, and will also prevent the entrance of refugees into the territory of the State of Israel,” the army said Wednesday.
As Syrian government forces press on with a furious offensive against rebel-held areas in the country’s south, Israel is quietly acknowledging that President Bashar Assad’s forces will soon be on its doorstep, laying down red lines for postwar relations with the Syrian leader.
Israel’s main concern is to keep archrival Iran, an Assad ally, as far away from its border as possible — along with its proxy, the Lebanese militia Hezbollah.
“Our demand is that the Iranian forces will go out or withdraw from Syria as a whole, and in it specifically southwest Syria,” said a senior Israeli military official.
It is a turnaround from a few years ago, when Israeli leaders were publicly predicting Assad’s overthrow and some voices even mused about peace with a future democratic Syria.
While carefully refusing to take sides in the Syrian civil war, Israel offered humanitarian assistance to rebels, and has made a public show of taking in several thousand wounded Syrians for medical treatment.
But there is a sense now in Israel, as in parts of the West, that despite Assad’s vicious conduct of the war — with hundreds of thousands killed and millions forced from their homes — his survival may be a better outcome than a takeover of Syria by Islamic militants who emerged over time as his most potent rivals.
Israeli leaders have sent a series of messages making clear that they expect Assad and his Iranian-backed allies to honor a decades-old agreement that sets out a demilitarized zone along the frontier and limits the number of forces each side can deploy within 25 kilometers (15 miles) of the zone.
“We have a Separation of Forces Agreement with Syria from 1974,” Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu declared this week. “This is the guiding principle. We will adhere to it very strictly and so must others, everyone.”
A defense official on Wednesday warned the Assad regime that any Syrian forces entering the demilitarized buffer zone between the two countries will be considered a legitimate target.
The official said that while Israel will continue to abide by the 1974 UN ceasefire agreement with Syria, the army was tracking the movements of Syrian forces that are in the area as part of the regime’s offensive against the rebel-held south.
“The agreement is the basis for any future security reality after Assad returns to [Israel’s] northern border,” he told Israel’s Channel 10. “Any Syrian troops who break it will be attacked.”
His comments followed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s call a day earlier for Syria to uphold the ceasefire.
According to the report, the United Nations Disengagement Observation Force (UNDOF), which administers the buffer zone and is responsible for maintaining the ceasefire between Israel and Syria, asked the two countries earlier this year for permission to install warning systems for infiltrators and explosive devices.
While Israel gave permission, Syria did not.
Israel believes the Syrians were fearful that UN forces will use radar to track the Syrian army, the report said.
Since the outbreak of the Syrian civil war, the majority of UN peacekeeping forces have withdrawn from the buffer zone.
Separately, Israel has been coordinating with UNDOF to set up “safe zones” for the tens of thousands of refugees fleeing Assad’s offensive. The Syrians have pitched tents on the border with Israel since the regime began its campaign in the Daraa region. The IDF is responding by sending several tons of medical supplies and food over the border and even bringing in six wounded refugees – including four children – into Israeli territory to receive treatment in a local hospital.
The IDF also said on Friday that it had sent several tons of humanitarian aid over the border. Some 160,000 Syrians are thought to have fled the fighting in the southwestern Deraa region, with several thousand setting up temporary refuges on the Syrian side of the Golan Heights.
“The IDF is monitoring what is going on in southern Syria and is prepared for a variety of scenarios, including continuing to provide humanitarian aid to fleeing Syrians,” the army said.
Three hundred tents and 50 tons of humanitarian aid — including food, baby food, clothing, shoes and medical supplies — were sent over as part of the ongoing Operation Good Neighbor and lasted “several hours,” the army said.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Israel was “prepared to provide any humanitarian assistance to civilians, women and children,” but emphasized “we will not accept any Syrian refugees into our territory.”
Residents in southern Syria reported an increasing crescendo of air strikes they alleged were by Russian aircraft on Thursday, a day after the Syrian rebels in the south walked away from surrender negotiations.
Since mid-June, the Syrian regime and its Russian ally have swept the rebels from a swath of territory, pushing them towards the Jordanian border and Israel’s Golan Heights.
More than 300,000 people have fled the advance. The Syrian regime and Russian air force have been careful not to carry out air strikes within 10 km. of the 1974 cease-fire line on the Golan.
On Wednesday, the Syrian rebels said they walked away from negotiations with Russia about a ceasefire. The rebels said they had come to discuss a cease fire but found themselves presented with “humiliating” terms, including that they hand over their weapons and stop fighting. The rebels in southern Syria met the Russian delegation in an undisclosed town in southern Syria somewhere near Dara’a.
Dara’a is one of the main cities that the Syrian rebellion began in during the 2011 Arab Spring and it therefore holds special significance. It is also just a few kilometers from the Jordanian border. Although the rebels have been chased out of many towns and villages in the last weeks, they have held on to part of Dara’a and a corridor that runs along the Jordanian border and then up towards the Golan.
After the rebels rejected what amounted to surrender terms the air strikes by Russia and the Syrian regime increased dramatically Thursday.
Of special importance is the town of Tafas, which links the rebel areas near the Golan with the areas near Jordan. It was hit by “tens of airs trikes” according to residents. Rumors online have indicated that Russia is playing a central role in what comes next.
This is partly because Russia is a party to the cease fire in the south with the US and Jordan. It is also because Russian President Vladimir Putin is supposed to meet US President Donald Trump this month and has also invited Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Moscow. Any deal in the south could see the deployment of Russian observers as has happened in north Syria.
Jordan wants the fighting to stop as hundreds of thousands of refugees are now at the country’s border and the UN has pressured Amman to open it. Amman has said it won’t allow more refugees in, as it already hosts around a million people who have fled conflict in the region.
HEZBOLLAH REPORTEDLY COMMANDING SYRIAN FIGHTERS NEAR ISRAELI BORDER: OFFENSIVE WILL MOVE TOWARDS QUNEITRA ON THE GOLAN
Hezbollah reportedly commanding Syrian fighters near Israeli border – exposing limits of Israeli and U.S. policy
Hezbollah’s role in the offensive near the border with Jordan and Israel’s Golan Heights has also defied Israeli demands that Iranian proxies be kept away from its frontier
Hezbollah is helping to lead a Russian-backed offensive in southern Syria which has left over 250,000 people displaced, pro-Damascus sources said. The Iranian-backed militia’s continued role in Syria exposes the limits of both Israeli and U.S. policy that hopes Moscow can get Iran and groups it backs out of the country.
Hezbollah’s role in the offensive near the border with Jordan and Israel’s Golan Heights has also defied Israeli demands that Iranian proxies be kept away from its frontier – a fault line of the decades-old Arab-Israeli conflict.
“Hezbollah is a fundamental participant in planning and directing this battle,” a commander in the regional alliance that backs Damascus told Reuters. “Everyone knows this – the Israeli enemy, friends, and even the Russians.”
Hezbollah’s role includes directing Syrian forces, the commander said. It has also deployed its own elite forces.
But the Iranian-backed group is keeping a lower profile than in past Syria campaigns, acknowledging the risks of Israeli escalation.
A senior official in the regional alliance that backs Assad said Hezbollah was fighting “under the cover” of the Syrian army in the south.
For Assad, the campaign holds out the prospect of reopening a vital trade artery to Jordan, reestablishing his control over the Golan frontier, and crushing rebels once deemed a threat because of their proximity to Damascus.
The offensive has yet to face resistance from Assad’s Western, Israeli or Arab foes. Washington has told rebels it once backed not to expect intervention. Some have surrendered.
Politically, the campaign has been one of the most complex yet for Assad. Israel has been pressing his Russian allies to keep Iranian-backed forces away from its frontier. Israel also wants them removed from Syria more widely, echoing Washington.
Recent Russian calls for non-Syrian forces to leave the south have been seen as partly directed at Iranian-backed forces.
White House national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday President Donald Trump would discuss Syria with Russia’s Vladimir Putin at a summit in Helsinki this month.
“The battlefield situation in Syria will not be reversed. The regime and its allies have very wide control,” the official said. Assad has said Hezbollah and other allies will stay a long time.
Excluding Iran and Hezbollah from the southwest was one objective of contacts between the United States, Russia, Israel and Jordan that had sought – unsuccessfully – to stave off a government offensive, the European diplomat said.
The temperature may however rise as the offensive moves from Deraa province towards Quneitra on the Golan, where tensions between Israel and Iran sparked a military confrontation in May. Israel beefed up its tank and artillery deployment on the Golan on Sunday.
OF DUALISM AND DOMINIONISM
Bill Wilson – www.dailyjot.com
The story is ancient. The Apostle Paul referred to it in 2 Corinthians 11:3 as he was warning the church about false prophets and deceivers, saying “But I fear lest, as The Serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, that your minds may also in this way be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus The Messiah).”
Genesis 3 shows how satan as a serpent deceived Eve into eating from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
Verses 4 and 5 say, “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”
The bait was to be like God.
Isaiah 14:11-14 portrays a similar theme as Lucifer’s fall from heaven is described. The direct Hebrew translation says, “You thought to yourself…I will make myself like the Most High.’” In Acts 8, Simon the sorcerer offered to pay to receive the Holy Spirit “that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost.” Peter told him in verse 20, “Thy money perish with thee, because thou has thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.” Point is: Man is not God; man cannot “impart” what is God’s. God determines when and who receives His gifts, not man. This is just one example of how Christianity has twisted the truth of the Holy Scriptures by teaching that man imparts the gifts of God.
There is a “dualistic” principle being applied in much of the church. That is, satan is a powerful adversary that must be withstood otherwise god’s kingdom cannot come. God chooses to act through man. Therefore, it is man who must battle satan and establish god’s kingdom on earth, otherwise god cannot return. This theology rejects the one true God of the Bible. God, the Creator of the universe, does not need man to fight his battles and establish his kingdom. It is true that God often chooses to work through man. In the end, however, it is Yeshua Ha Mashiach, the Christ, who redeems the earth and establishes His kingdom—not man, nor the “church.”
Revelation 19:14-15 says, “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.” There are no earthly humans here who established any kingdom so that Christ could return. Leading Christians to believe that they must establish the kingdom for Christ to return is unbiblical and deceptive. It plays into satan’s “be like the Most High” mantra and leads to the end time one world religion. As Christ said in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.”
PREPARE FOR A SUMMER OF RAGE AS PROGRESSIVE LEADERS URGE FOLLOWERS TO RISE UP
By Michael Snyder – http://www.prophecynewswatch.com
On Friday, Michael Moore went on Bill Maher’s HBO show and suggested that the U.S. military would side with progressives in a civil war against Donald Trump. The very next day, Antifa thugs violently clashed with pro-Trump conservatives that had gathered for a prayer rally on the streets of Portland, Oregon.
Flash-bang grenades were thrown by Antifa activists, the police confiscated “mace, clubs, gloves with reinforced knuckles, batons, knives and handgun clips”, and many were injured and had to be taken to the hospital.
The violence was so dramatic that some are actually calling this the first skirmish in America’s next civil war. Last week, a shocking poll found that 31 percent of all Americans believe that there will be a civil war in America within the next five years and that 59 percent of Americans believe that Donald Trump’s opponents will resort to violence.
But after the events of this past weekend, we no longer have to wonder if civil unrest is coming to America. Civil unrest is already here, and it is going to get much worse in the months ahead.
The next several months are being billed as a “summer of rage”. Progressive leaders continue to insist that they are “the majority” and that it is time for them to “start acting like the majority”.
Of course they aren’t talking about mobilizing voters and taking the country back at the polls in November.
Instead, they are talking about more direct action.
For example, Michael Moore told Bill Maher that if they don’t act now, Americans are going to deeply regret not rising up against “fascism” while there was still time to do so…
Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore was fired up on Friday night’s “Real Time,” telling host Bill Maher that now is the time to stand together to stop the “madness” in the Trump administration, even comparing it to the dystopian world seen in “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
“We are living ‘The Handmaid’s Tale,’” Moore said. “This is a serious point. The best part of the show is the flashbacks, where she tries to figure out where was the point where it was too late. Where was the point that if we all just had risen up, just done something? But because it happens in little increments. That’s how fascism works.”
And Michael Moore certainly intends to be at the tip of the spear.
In fact, he also told Bill Maher that he plans “to join a million other Americans to surround the United States Capitol” to protest Donald Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court.
Of course we don’t even know who the nominee will be yet. There are rumblings that it could be Amy Coney Barrett, and if that is the case the left is really going to freak out then.
Chris Matthews of MSNBC is speaking in apocalyptic terms as well. He says that this is a time “to fight”, and he is convinced that “it’s gonna be almost like Spanish Civil War stuff”…
“So I would say I think this is gonna be the fight of the century,” he told MSNBC. “I think the Democrats have to say no way. No one passes this line. I think it’s gonna be almost like Spanish Civil War stuff – you watch!”
“It’s time for Democrats to play Hardball,” he added. “I’m Chris Matthews and I’m urging them to do just that. There are times to fight and this is one of them.”
I don’t think that most conservatives really understand what is happening.
These radical leftists are ready to put their lives on the line. They are entirely convinced that Donald Trump is another version of Hitler and that Trump supporters are all a bunch of fascists, and they truly believe that they need to do whatever is possible to fight “the rising tide of fascism” in this country.
The following excerpt from an opinion piece by Charles M. Blow in the New York Times is a glimpse into how these crazed progressives currently view Donald Trump…
He is a racist who disparages black and brown people, whether they be immigrants, Muslims, people from Haiti and Africa, Barack Obama, the mayor of San Juan or Maxine Waters. People equivocate about it and excuse it.
He is attacking the press in the most aggressive of terms so that what they reveal about him will be viewed with skepticism.
He is attempting to weaken our institutions, our protocols and conventions, our faith in the truth, our sense of honor and our respect for the rule of law.
To these progressives, there is no greater cause then resisting Donald Trump and trying to take America back.
During his conversation with Bill Maher, Michael Moore insisted that the “moment is now” and that this movement is something worth giving your life for…
“What are people willing to commit to? What would you give your life for?” Moore said. “What would you be willing to actually put yourself on the line for? That moment is now. We are going to lose our democracy if we haven’t already. We have no choice, my friends. We all have to rise up.”
When people are ready to die for a cause, suddenly they will do things that they would not normally do.
Normally, Americans do not throw flash-bang grenades at one another, but that is precisely what happened in Portland over the weekend. Trump supporters that had gathered to pray were caught unprepared for the violence that erupted, and one woman was entirely convinced that Antifa had come down there to “try to murder us”…
‘They were throwing rocks, they were throwing bottles, you need to tell the truth,’ one middle-aged woman in a Make America Great Again hat said after the clashes, addressing media in remarks caught on camera.
‘No one on our side did anything violent, everything was self defense,’ she claimed. ‘You guys have to stop it because you’re encouraging these people to come down here and try to murder us.’
You can watch five minutes of what looks like war zone footage from the Portland riot here (warning violence & language). Even though I have been warning that this is coming for a very long time, even I was greatly shocked by the ferocity of the violence.
The thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted is rapidly disappearing, and it is going to be exceedingly hard to stop civil unrest from erupting in major cities all over the nation.
As I end this article today, let me leave you with an ominous warning from a progressive that was just published by the Washington Post…
The backlash is coming. It is the deserved consequence of minority-rule government protecting the rich over everybody else, corporations over workers, whites over nonwhites and despots over democracies. It will explode, God willing, at the ballot box and not in the streets.
You can only ignore the will of the people for so long and get away with it.
