Birds, Bees, Bats and Dolphins

Lots of strange things happening in the animal kingdom these past few years...birds falling from the skies, massive fish kills, bees disappearing, strange fungus killing millions of bats...and now we have a massive dolphin kill.

WELLFLEET — Marine mammal rescuers continued to scout the coastline of Cape Cod Bay on Friday for additional live or dead common dolphins in what has been the largest mass-stranding event in at least 10 years.

Since Jan. 12, International Fund for Animal Welfare staff members and volunteers have identified 160 short-beaked common dolphins as stranded, organization spokesman Michael Booth said Friday. Of those, 103 have been found dead, 17 have died or been euthanized after being found alive, and 40 have been released to deep waters.


It seems that nature is groaning....

Greek Police Threaten to Arrest IMF Officials

This is incredible!  Greece is being forced to slash their budget after years of spending borrowed money and living an unsustainable life style.

The European Union and the IMF have been working on ways to bail out Greece and help them get on a sustainable track.  Of course this track MUST include budget cuts and also economic growth plans and also a revamping of the tax code.

Of course no adolescent child wants to be told he has to change his lifestyle and spend less they would rather throw a tantrum at their parents than accept a smaller lifestyle.

So today we have news that the police force is sick and tired of having to take less they have threatened to arrest those who would help them become financially sustainable.

ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece's largest police union has threatened to issue arrest warrants for officials from the country's European Union and International Monetary Fund lenders for demanding deeply unpopular austerity measures.

In a letter obtained by Reuters Friday, the Federation of Greek Police accused the officials of "...blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty" and said one target of its warrants would be the IMF's top official for Greece, Poul Thomsen.

"Since you are continuing this destructive policy, we warn you that you cannot make us fight against our brothers. We refuse to stand against our parents, our brothers, our children or any citizen who protests and demands a change of policy," said the union, which represents more than two-thirds of Greek policemen.

"We warn you that as legal representatives of Greek policemen, we will issue arrest warrants for a series of legal violations ... such as blackmail, covertly abolishing or eroding democracy and national sovereignty."


Remember that Greece spent decades living off of "free" money that was easily given to them for any reason they deemed acceptable...including vacations.  Very few people pay taxes and most people have been collecting some sort of check from the government.

When you go to the Cycle of Nations that we blogged about yesterday....where does it appear that Greece is today?   It would look like she will soon be in bondage again.  To whom?...remains to be seen, but for sure in the short term she will be in bondage to the IMF and the European Union....and that inevitability is exactly why the Greek police force is lashing out at those parties.

Indians Sue Brewers for Getting Them Drunk we go! 

The Oglala Sioux Tribe is suing some of the world's largest beer brewers, saying they knowingly have contributed to devastating alcohol-related problems on Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

The lawsuit, filed Thursday in U.S. District Court of Nebraska, seeks $500 million in damages for the costs the tribe has incurred in dealing with crime and providing social services and health care as a result of rampant alcoholism among the 20,000 tribal members.

The suit is on behalf of the tribe, however, and no individual tribal members are plaintiffs and eligible for money.

It also targets four beer stores in Whiteclay, Neb., a tiny town in northwest Nebraska at the South Dakota border near the reservation. Despite only about dozen residents in town, the stores sold almost 5 million cans of beer in 2010 -- almost 250 cans per Pine Ridge tribal member. Alcohol is not legal on the reservation.

Tribal leaders and activists blame Whiteclay businesses for chronic alcohol abuse and bootlegging on the reservation. They say most of the stores' customers come from Pine Ridge.

"In a town of 11 people selling 4.9 million 12-ounce servings of beer, there is no way that alcohol could be legally consumed. It's just impossible," said Thomas White, a former Nebraska legislator and Omaha, Neb., lawyer who is representing the tribe.

Next up...obese people suing Kemps Ice Cream, diabetics suing Crystal sugar, porn addicts suing Hustler Magazine, and gambling addicts suing Las Vegas casinos....

I think we can all now agree that this nation is in serious's just a discussion of how long the trouble can last before it becomes catastrophic trouble.

The Big Tune Out

The world is on a precipice.  The Middle East is close to war, federal deficits are at an unsustainable level, Europe is set to collapse, unemployment is at record highs, global unrest seems to be spreading.....holy cats!, with all that news one would think Americans would be intensely involved in choosing our next leader.  Someone who can lead us away from the abyss to which we are heading!!!

But of course, you would be wrong.  Americans are not only tuning out the Republican race...but they are also tuning out President Obama and Congress.  They simply don't care who leads them or what their leaders or future leaders are saying or doing in these tumultuous times.

But you know what they do care about and what they ARE tuning into?.....NFL FOOTBALL!!!!

But it's not confined to the Republican side. Look at President Obama's State of the Union numbers. That speech famously blankets all television and radio networks. His first speech to a joint session of Congress, in February 2009, drew 52 million viewers. A year later the State of the Union had an understandable fall-off to about 48 million. In 2011, another fall: 43 million watched. A few weeks ago his 2012 State of the Union drew just 38 million. From 52 to 38: That's quite a decline. And again, during an continuing crisis and in a presidential election year. As for the president's interviews and other speeches, well, when was the last time you heard someone ask excitedly, "Did you hear what Obama said?"

Whose numbers are up? The NFL's.

Maybe the story the political class is missing is not "They don't like the Republican field," or "They don't like Obama." Maybe the story is that people are tuning out altogether. Maybe they're bored with politics, and most especially with politicians. Maybe they don't think our government can't solve anything. Maybe, even, our political class has done such a good job depicting the crisis we're in that the American people, with their low faith in institutions, think nothing, really, can be done about it. So let's check out. Let's watch the game.


Now lets attempt to plug in our entertainment driven society into the Cycle of Nations to see where we are;
From Bondage to Spiritual faith
From Spiritual faith to great courage
From courage to liberty
From liberty to abundance
From abundance to selfishness
From selfishness to complacency
From complacency to apathy
From apathy to dependency
From dependency BACK to bondage again.

And so ends the cycle...only to be repeated again.  For those who read the Bible see how many times the Israelites completed this cycle.

Now where do you think America is?  Of course if we are tuning out the election of the man who could affect our entire lives as Leader of the Free World, then clearly we are in the apathy stage and also WELL INTO the dependency stage because we now have over 45,000,000 on food stamps, millions dependent on Social Security for their income and government Medicaid for health care....not to mention Section 8 housing and welfare.

Sounds like our next stop is back to bondage.

How, who, when and where are yet to be determined.

Even so....come Lord Jesus.

U.S. Senator Taunts Putin

Most prophecy watchers agree that current day Russia was once part of the biblical land called Magog.  Of course Magog is mentioned as a player that leads a Last Days army intent on the destruction of Israel.

Recently there have been demonstrations in Russia against Putin coming back to power...and most Russians properly assume that corruption and voter fraud have made his re election possible and now protests are happening in the streets.

Senator John McCain thought it may be fun to provoke Putin with a little friendly ribbing on Twitter.

U.S. Senator John McCain has again angered supporters of Prime Minister Vladimir Putin by describing Russia's nascent protest movement as an extension of the Arab Spring uprisings that have shaken and toppled governments across the Middle East.

"Dear Vlad, the #ArabSpring has arrived at a neighborhood near you," the Arizona Republican and former presidential candidate tweeted Sunday. He included a link to a New York Times article about Saturday's opposition protest, which drew tens of thousands.

The tweet provoked a sharp response from at least two senior United Russia officials including Andrei Vorobyov, the leader of the party's Duma faction, who described it as a "provocation," and called on Russians to resist foreign "meddling" from American officials he said were trying to incite revolution.

The Moscow Times

Also remember that Russia has given their thumbs up to Syrian leader Assad to continue murdering his people so that he can put down their unrest.  So we are dealing with a brutal bunch of leaders....all of which are mentioned in the Bible during the Last Days.

Senator McCain, should consider a few things before you taunt the Russian bear which has been sleeping nicely for the past 20 years.....America is NOT mentioned anywhere in future prophecy AND it is not a good idea to provoke sleeping bears....especially bears that you owe LOTS of money to.

No Lost Ice in Past 10 Years

This next headline is going to disappoint those folks who are giddy about global Al Gore and half of America.

It turns out the glaciers and snow haven't been melting everywhere.

The world's greatest snow-capped peaks, which run in a chain from the Himalayas to Tian Shan on the border of China and Kyrgyzstan, have lost no ice over the last decade, new research shows.

The discovery has stunned scientists, who had believed that around 50bn tonnes of meltwater were being shed each year and not being replaced by new snowfall.

The study is the first to survey all the world's icecaps and glaciers and was made possible by the use of satellite data. Overall, the contribution of melting ice outside the two largest caps – Greenland and Antarctica – is much less than previously estimated, with the lack of ice loss in the Himalayas and the other high peaks of Asia responsible for most of the discrepancy.

But of course the scientists who have made a living telling us that global warming is going to kill everyone simply aren't going to matter how much UN MELTED SNOW they find.  Keep worrying people!!

"Our results and those of everyone else show we are losing a huge amount of water into the oceans every year," said Prof John Wahr of the University of Colorado. "People should be just as worried about the melting of the world's ice as they were before."

Israel's Peace Message to Iran

No one can argue with the fact that Israel is front and center in the headline news every single day.

Today is no different.  We find this on the front page of MSNBC.

Israel's president reached out to the Iranian people with a message of peace Wednesday, as the West tightened sanctions over Iran's nuclear program, and a former Israeli spymaster said Israel is not in mortal danger.   

Speaking at a ceremony marking the 63rd anniversary of the founding of Israel's parliament, Peres directed his remarks to the people of Iran.

"We were not born enemies and there is no need to live as enemies. Do not allow the flags of hostility to cast a dark shadow over your historic heritage," Peres said. "Your people are a sensitive people that aspire for friendship and peace, and not for conflicts and wars."

Israel and Iran had close relations before the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

"Peres is one of the few people in Israel who remember the warm ties between the two countries. He visited a few times before the revolution, he walked the streets of Tehran, ate at restaurants there and had many Iranian friends," she told The Associated Press.

In contrast to his message to the people, Peres denounced the Iranian regime.

"Iran is not only a threat for Israel, it constitutes a real danger to humanity as a whole," Peres said about the Iranian nuclear program. "The present Iranian regime is Imperialism-hungry, aspiring to be the region's supreme ruler," he said.


So what does all this public chatter mean?  Panetta is saying Israel is going to attack in April, May or June, Kruathammer says the leak from Israel is that an attack on Iran is going to happen any day now, and now you have Peres talking around the Iranian regime and talking directly to the Iranian people....almost like he is apologizing to them for some form of violence that is coming?

What an amazing time to be alive and witness all these things. 

"But do not be afraid.  All these things must happen, but the end is still to come."

Quake in Philippines

While we were busy discussing the outcome of the Superbowl....did anyone even hear of the large earthquake that hit the Philippines?  Seriously....these large quakes are coming so often that few people in the rest of the world even know about them.

Philippine officials conceded Wednesday that there was little hope of finding any survivors among 71 people still buried in landslides set off by a powerful earthquake, as jittery residents stayed away from their homes amid a flurry of aftershocks.

Soldiers, rescue volunteers and villagers using picks and shovels have not found anyone alive under concrete rubble and tons of rocks and mountain soil since the magnitude-6.9 quake struck two townships in central Negros Oriental province on Monday. So far, 26 bodies have been recovered and identified.

Ramos said many jittery villagers refused to return to their houses, fearing more damage from numerous aftershocks and opting instead to sleep in vacant fields and parks.

"We could see how severe nature's wrath was," Aquino said. "The aftershocks are enlarging the cracks of the roads."

With more bodies expected to be recovered, Guihulngan Mayor Ernesto Reyes said his town of 100,000 people might run out of coffins. At least 23 people were still missing there.

College Vending Machine Dispenses Morning After Pill

This article can be filed in the, "I never thought I would see the day," file.

Of course the vending machine on campus not only dispenses abortion pills but also condoms, and pregnancy tests.  I wonder if they will soon add sex toys?

Students at Shippensburg University in central Pennsylvania can get the "morning-after" pill by sliding $25 into a vending machine installed at the request of the student government.    

The Etter Health Center at Shippensburg, a public school of 8,300 students in Appalachia's scenic Cumberland Valley, provides the Plan B One Step emergency contraceptive along with condoms, decongestants and pregnancy tests.

The pill is available without a prescription to anyone 17 or older, and the school checked records and found that all current students are that age or older, spokesman Peter Gigliotti said.

The machine was installed after a request from the student association. The pill's availability in a vending machine appears to be rare, if not unprecedented.


So we now live in a society that says to our kids, "Feast your eyes on free internet pornography, watch copious amounts of crap on TV and at theatres, get good and drunk at least 3-4 nights a week while at college, make sure you have sex with lots of different partners so you can decide who you want to live with, marriage is optional, and if you ever get so drunk that you forget to use your condom, just go the vending machine and take this pill which will kill the unwanted tissue in your stomach."

Do we really believe that the #1 issue facing this country is getting people back to work?  Do we really believe that if we can get the stock market back on firm footing that everything is going to be OK?  Do we really believe that electing someone different than Obama is going to "fix" everything?

Now Watch Kuwait

We know the Muslim extremists are partying in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Gaza, Iran, Iraq, Libya, Sudan, and just about every other Muslim country.  And now it appears we can ad the country of Kuwait as they just elected a bunch of Muslim extremists.

ABU DHABI — Sunni Islamists have won a majority of Kuwait’sparliament.

Authorities said Islamic opposition candidates won 34 out of 50 seats in
the parliament. They said Sunni Islamists, bolstered by tribal support, won
23 seats, compared to nine in the previous parliament. No women were

“The Kuwait of tomorrow will not be the Kuwait of yesterday,” said Obeid Al Wasmi, a key opposition figure elected to parliament. (NOW THERE IS AN UNDERSTATEMENT)

Pro-government candidates did poorly in the elections, said to have been the most violent in years. Royalists won only a handful ofseats, with many losing their reelection bid amid an investigation over
corruption charges.

The Salafists, regarded as followers of Al Qaida, increased their representation from three to 12 seats.

The Salafists have been vociferousopponents of the U.S. military presence in Kuwait, with more than 25,000 troops.


OK....let's just think about this for a little bit...if you were a devout Muslim who believed what Allah said about a world wide caliphate taking over the world and ruling by Shariah law....a time when Jews and Christians would be destroyed...a time when the poor, ignorant Muslims will finally get there place in the Muhammad promised.....WOULDN'T YOU LOOK AROUND and start to believe that that is EXACTLY what you are witnessing?  Wouldn't it very possible confirm your faith in Islam and maybe embolden you to enter into this Arab Spring which seems to be spreading?

"Wide is the road that leads to destruction and many will be on it."  said Jesus.

Friends, the spiritual battle in the heavens is upon us like never before.  We need to be in prayer for these lost people and in prayer for this nation and our leaders.  We need to pray that America would wake up...before it's simply too late.

Bible Rewritten to Not Offend Muslims

This next article can be filed into your drawer labeled, "Tickle their ears."...of course coming from the passage that says, "In the Last Days men will surround themselves with teachers who tell them what their itchy ears want to hear."

Remember that Muslims DENY the trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.  The god of Allah that they worship claims to have no "helpers" some of the Bible printing companies thought it might be good to rework and rewrite the Bible.

Next up will be a Bible translation that reworks the word "sin" we can present the Bible to sinners but get rid of any of the offensive language that may be offensive to sinners.

And finally, we can work on a Bible that gets rid of the words "Jews" and "Israel" and replaces those words with "people" and "nations" that we can do away once and for all with this crazy notion that God has a "chosen people"....

 A controversy is brewing over three reputable Christian organizations, which are based in North America, whose efforts have ousted the words "Father" and "Son" from new Bibles. Wycliffe Bible Translators, Summer Institute of Linguistics and Frontiers are under fire for "producing Bibles that remove "Father," "Son" and "Son of God" because these terms are offensive to Muslims."

Concerned Christian missionaries, Bible translators, pastors, and national church leaders have come together with a public petition to stop these organizations. They claim a public petition is their last recourse because meetings with these organizations' leaders, staff resignations over this issue and criticism and appeals from native national Christians concerned about the translations "have failed to persuade these agencies to retain "Father" and "Son" in the text of all their translations."


It would appear that the "Great Falling Away" (apostasy) is upon us...when we can throw out the foundations of Christ as to not offend anyone....or to sell books.

This behavior is so egregious that even the Arab speaking Christians are speaking against it.  Here are three examples.

The main issues of this controversy surround new Arabic and Turkish translations. Here are three examples native speakers give:

First, Wycliffe and SIL have produced Stories of the Prophets, an Arabic Bible that uses an Arabic equivalent of "Lord" instead of "Father" and "Messiah" instead of "Son."

Second, Frontiers and SIL have produced Meaning of the Gospel of Christ , an Arabic translation which removes "Father" in reference to God and replaces it with "Allah," and removes or redefines "Son." For example, the verse which Christians use to justify going all over the world to make disciples, thus fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) reads, "Cleanse them by water in the name of Allah, his Messiah and his Holy Spirit" instead of "baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit." Rev. Bassam Madany, an Arab American who runs Middle East Resources, terms these organization's efforts as "a western imperialistic attempt that's inspired by cultural anthropology, and not by biblical theology."

Third, Frontiers and SIL have produced a new Turkish translation of the Gospel of Matthew that uses Turkish equivalents of "guardian" for "Father" and "representative" or "proxy" for "Son." To Turkish church leader Rev. Fikret Böcek, "This translation is 'an all-American idea' with absolutely no respect for the 'sacredness' of Scripture, or even of the growing Turkish church."

Obama Says Israel USA Working Together

I hope Obama is telling the truth on this one...and that USA and Israel are working together on how to solve the Iran problem.

The US is working closely with Israel to prevent Iran from becoming a nuclear power, President Barack Obama has said.

He told NBC he believed Israel had not yet decided how to deal with the issue, amid reports that Israel may strike Iran as early as spring.

Mr Obama said the aim was to resolve the crisis diplomatically, but added that no option was off the table.


Mr Obama also said there was no evidence that the Iranians had "intentions or capabilities" to strike US targets in retaliation.


Every day now for the past 2 weeks, Iran's supreme leaders have been saying they have EVERY intention of taking out the USA, or striking the USA if anybody does anything to strike Iran and its illegal nuclear program...but I guess Obama doesn't believe those qualify as "intentions".

It President Obama's world...I wonder what they would have to say for Iran's threats to be registered in his mind as "intentions"?

Here is the article;

Survival Guide by Mormon

It appears that the Mormons also believe we are in the End of Days.  They have put out a 100 page manual on how to be prepared for the collapse of the it because of solar storm, massive earthquake on the New Madrid fault knocking out power, or nuclear attack by a rogue nation such as North Korea, Iran, etc...

This is a serious manual...with PLENTY of detail.

While we folks, who believe in the Pre-Tribualtion return of Christ for His bride the Church, HOPE that we will not have to see chaos and anarchy befall this nation....we have no idea of how bad things COULD GET before Christ does return.

Also some of us may have been called to set aside food, wood, fuel, guns and ammo not so much for ourselves but because we may actually be setting aside provisions for those who will come to Christ during THE TRIBULATION.

With that as a backdrop, take a few minutes to check out this manual my Mormon.  Also please ignore the references to the book of Mormon and other false teachings that conflict with the Bible.


Browse it here;

President Joseph Fielding Smith said:

“The distress and perplexity, bloodshed and terror, selfish ambition of despotic rulers, such as

the world has never before seen, all indicate that the great and dreadful day of the Lord is very

near, even at our doors. We have been warned by the prophets from the beginning of time. They

have declared, by revelation from the Lord, that in this present day, confusion, bloodshed, misery,

plague, famine, earthquake, and other calamities, would cover the face of the earth. The Lord told

his disciples of these dreadful scenes and said men’s hearts would fail them because of these things

coming upon the earth. . . .”
