Carving Up Israel

This headline has SERIOUS repercussions to us all;

'Obama pledges big movement' on carving up Israel

Despite widespread assumptions the U.S. would veto any such U.N. Security Council resolution, PA officials told WND the Obama administration did not threaten to veto their conceptual unilateral resolution.

"The U.S. has a history of never before vetoing any U.N. move to create a new state," a PA negotiator pointed out.

Meanwhile, PA officials said they were told by the Obama administration not to be concerned about the results of the upcoming midterm elections. The officials said they were told the outcome of the elections would not affect Obama's foreign policy.

Hold on's going to be a wild ride.

Jobless Numbers Worse Than We Think

Today in the Wall Street Journal, we find this headline;
Jobless Numbers Are Worse Than You Think

By 2010, however, employment had fallen to about 10% below the trend, far below any previous level in the last half-century. These figures indicate that as of the first half of 2010, the economy has generated about 12 million fewer jobs than expected. In other words, things are not as bad now as they were in the early 1980s; they are much worse. Recall as well that the unemployment rate of the early 1980s was the result of the ultimately successful battle against inflation.

One message we're hearing often from Washington is that recent increases in government spending have averted another Great Depression. That's nonsense. If such policies had any coherence there would have been no Great Depression (when government spending grew); the U.S. economy would have collapsed following World War II (when government spending plummeted); and the U.S., not to mention Greece, would now be experiencing a boom like no other.

As many observers of the economic scene have noted, private investment and hiring are suppressed by economic and political uncertainty. Such uncertainty is generated by unprecedented government intervention, massive increases in government spending, and anticipated tax increases.
This is what the policies undertaken during the 1930s, those that sustained the Great Depression, should have taught us.

I tell you what...when you take this article into account and add the article from Obama's college classmate we posted a few days makes you wonder if Team Obama knows EXACTLY what they are doing? Could they be purposely repeating the mistakes of the 1930's in an attempt to collapse us into social and economic the government can grab total and complete control?

If you read the Bible and see what the world looks like during Antichrist's sure seems like we might be riding on one of the puzzle pieces that will take us there.

Satan Likes it Dark

We know that North Korea is one of the most miserable places to live. It is particularly bad if you are a Christian because persecution is rampant.
It is a dark place...spiritually and literally.
Check out this night time satellite image of Korea. You can see that there is no electricity in almost all of North Korea while South Korea is lit up like a lantern.
But if you look real close, you can see one light in North Korea off to the left. That's where the Gopher lives in a huge mansion with a swimming pool and an amusement park. I would guess that he sleeps with the lights on.

North Korea Vows Trouble

The USA and South Korea are soon going to engage in joint military games...and North Korea has threatened a "physical response" to what they view as a provocation.

"It is a threat to the Korean peninsula and the region of Asia as a whole. And the DPRK's (North Korea) position is clear: there will be a physical response to the threat imposed by the United States militarily."

Washington and Seoul say the war games - involving the aircraft carrier USS George Washington, 20 other ships and submarines, 100 aircraft and 8,000 personnel - are intended to deter North Korean aggression.

China has criticised the plans and warned against any action which might "exacerbate regional tensions".

But Japan is sending four military observers, in an apparent endorsement of the drills.

Let's review; North Korea's citizens are starving to death living under the control of a maniacal despot (AKA-Gopher in a pantsuit).
-North Korea has nukes and this Gopher's regime may be on the verge of collapse...he may want to go out with a bang.
-Most of it's citizens are illiterate and unskilled and have no idea how to run a even if the Gopher was taken down, what would be there to replace him?
-And China is terrified of millions of illiterate North Koreans spilling over into China and swamping their system, so they would prefer the Gopher stay in power to keep this from happening.
-China wants to keep the Gopher and they are not happy that the USA, Japan and South Korea are making the Gopher fidgety.
-As we said yesterday, we owe China a boat load of money and like it or not, their money is financing OUR WAR GAMES with South China may soon start swinging a bat.
Jesus said there would be wars and rumors of wars.....and man, did he ever get that right!

China Buildup

Let's see....not only do we need to have China keep loaning us more money, but we currently owe them $1 trillion...and now we are "concerned" about their military buildup. Hmmm....something doesn't smell good here.

“I have moved from being curious about what [the Chinese] are doing to being concerned about what they are doing,” Adm. Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told troops at a town hall meeting in South Korea Wednesday.

Mullen said the military is concerned that it does not have a clear picture of China’s intentions. The country suspended military-to-military relations with the U.S. earlier this year after the U.S. said it would sell $6.4 billion worth of weapons to Taiwan.

See it here;

"The borrower will be slave to the lender," says the word of God.

I'm just a dork from Buffalo, but maybe I need to stop by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and tell them what China's intentions are; THEY INTEND FOR US NOT TO STIFF THEM OUT OF THEIR HARD EARNED CASH!

Remember, Revelation speaks of the "Kings of the East" being a major player during The we would expect to see their stock rise as we approach The Day.

Sadly, this means that we would also expect our (USA) stock to fall as we approach The Day...because we are suspiciously absent from Revelation.

Thousands of Missiles Would Fall

No surprise here...but Israel is preparing it's civilians for war. We already saw the massive civilian defense drills they carried on earlier in the year.

Some folks may be thinking that this next round of war will simply be a repeat of the Lebanon war of 2006....but that won't be the case.

Israeli media reported Monday that the Israeli occupation army Home Front Command is putting together a plan for the mass evacuation of settlers in the event of missile and rocket attacks, adding that Hezbollah's rockets can currently hit practically everywhere in the occupied country.

"In '91, people went to work during the day, and at night wanted to get their families out of the center of the country, because the Dan Region was considered a high-risk area," the senior officer said. "But at that time, 42 missiles fell. This time the scenarios are talking about thousands of missiles and rockets."

See it here:

Continue praying for the peace of Jerusalem...and also for the Israeli citizens who will bare the brunt of Islamic hatred.

Hat tip to Tom.

Obama's College Classmate

The dude's name is Wayne Root and he roomed with Obama at Columbia. I have no idea if this guy is an agenda of his own, but I do know when I read his comments...they sure sounded like they could be true.

Decide for yourselves.

Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.

Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

See it here;

Wow! It sure seems like we are headed for systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos.

Kind of sounds exactly like what the Bible says to expect in the very last days.

Pass the Money Please!

I was just at lunch with a financial products wholesaler and we were talking about an article I had recently read about how woefully ill-prepared the average bear is for retirement. A huge majority of people have absolutely nothing in any sort of savings...and yes, I do realize that this may apply to many who are reading this blog.

This was in my email when I returned from lunch:

Nearly Half of Those Nearing Retirement Lack Adequate Savings

Some 47 percent of early baby boomers are not expected to have sufficient savings to cover basic living costs such as food, health care, and utilities throughout their retirement, according to an Employee Benefit Research Institute study. Social Security alone will not cover all their expenses, says study leader Jack VanDerhei. "People haven't saved enough and have invested poorly," he observes, adding that the people in the best shape in terms of savings usually have 401(k) plans. The study also expects 44.5 percent of Generation X members to run out of money. Even those with adequate savings could feel an impact, as new taxes or restrictions on Social Security may be necessary to help an overtaxed system deal with so many needy people.

From "Nearly Half of Those Nearing Retirement Lack Adequate Savings"Chicago Tribune (07/14/10) MarksJarvis, Gail

Did you catch that phrase, "Even those with adequate savings could feel the many needy people." Let me interpret that one for you. Those who have been responsible and bought houses they could afford, bought used cars, and lived below their means....will now be FORCED BY LAW to care for those who overspent and under saved....because they will be needy.

Is that Biblical for a government to TAKE YOUR MONEY and give it to WHOMEVER THEY PLEASE?

Isn't there a verse someplace that says, "God loves a cheerful giver"? Not sure that applies to being cheerful about the government using the full penalty of the IRS to take some one's money and force them to buy food, housing and medical care for someone else.

Strange times are coming folks.

Iron Dome

Yesterday we posted an article that spoke of reasons that Israel hasn't attacked Iran...yet. One of the reasons mentioned in the article was that Israel was putting the finishing touches on being prepared to protect their citizens when Israel's enemies launch thousands of missiles right into the middle of Israel.

That concern may now be addressed....and may move Israel one step closer to having the confidence to take on Iran and it's proxies, Syria and Hezbollah. (Remember that Hezbollah is currently positioned in Southern Lebanon...right on Israel's northern border.)

The fix is in a missile defense system that Israel calls, "Iron Dome".

An observer who watched Monday's test and has no active role in the defense establishment said the test was "amazing."

Iron Dome, he said, when "faced with a volley of Grad-type Katyushas, fires a counter-volley and the interceptors are required to select and intercept specific Grads in this flying pack. It looked impossible, but they did the impossible," he said. "Every missile picked the specific Grad it was asked to select and destroyed it. There's no doubt this is historic."

See it here;

Also note that some more good news shows up in the article;

The U.S. Congress passed last week the Obama administration's initiative to provide Israel with a $205 million grant to procure Iron Dome batteries.

So it appears we are still helping Israel with finances and defense. That's good to know...because it is becoming increasingly clear that the only reason the USA is still standing is because we continue to be some sort of blessing to Israel.

When we start cursing Israel is when you may see a sudden fall for Team USA.

Why Hasn't Israel Bombed Iran?

Just another day where the Wall Street Journal has an article about Israel.

This one is titled; WHY HASN'T ISRAEL BOMBED IRAN (YET)?

Why hasn't Israel bombed Iran yet? It's a question I often get from people who suppose I have a telepathic hotline to Benjamin Netanyahu's brain. I don't, but for a long time I was confident that an attack would happen in the first six months of this year. Since it didn't, it's worth thinking through why.

The author then goes on to list some of the main reasons that Israel hasn't pulled the trigger...yet. So you can read that all here;

But check out this line near the end of the article;

But its (Israel's) tactical margin for error will be slim, particularly since an effective strike will require days not hours. And the political risks it runs will be monumental. As Mr. Doran notes, in 1956 it could at least count on the diplomatic support of two members of the U.N. Security Council. Today, the U.S. is its (Israel's) last significant friend.

Wow! The world is turning on Israel...just as the Bible said it would in the Very Last Days. And now the USA is Israel's last significant friend! How prophetic!!

Will Team Obama stay with Israel if she attacks? You can sure believe our fate as a country will hang in the balance based on what our leaders decide.

Continue to pray for our leaders that they will support Israel right up to the time of the rapture of The Church.

Build The Temple!

A handful of years ago I remember seeing a survey of Israelis regarding the building of The Third Temple. Needless to say, the interest in Temple building was pretty low at that point.

Today we see this headline;

Half the Public Wants to See Holy Temple Rebuilt

Half the Israeli public wants the Holy Temple (Beit HaMikdash) to be rebuilt. This is the main finding of a poll commissioned by the Knesset Television Channel and carried out by the Panels Institute.

See it here;

This is pretty darn interesting because we know that the Third Temple will be rebuilt. This will be the Temple that the Antichrist will sit himself in 3 1/2 years into The Tribulation, betray the Jews and declare himself to be God.

Most prophecy watchers believe that 100% of Jews will soon ask for a Temple. The final push that may swing the scale from 50% of Jews to 100% of Jews MAY BE the witnessing of God destroying the coalition armies of Russia, Iran, Turkey, Libya and others. (Ezekiel 38)

Friends, the frequency of "Temple talk" seems to be on the rise. This is foreshadowing big things coming.

Most important for us Christians to remember....the rapture of The Church (us) will probably precede the events of Ezekiel 38.

And even if they don't and we are here to witness them....this BIG event appears to be on the horizon.

So let's live sober lives....exactly as the Word of God prescribes.
