Aurora Police: Officer on Scene Describes Two Shooters

By Shepard Ambellas
Update: Actual police audio from the scene described what looked to be a coordinated attack with at least two shooters yet the police chief, the corporate media, and the federal government continue to claim that the mind controlled James Holmes acted alone.

Batman Murders: Did They Arrest James Holmes? What About The Blood Trail? The 2nd Gas Mask?

Jon Rappoport
Natural News
Citizen journalists are outdistancing everybody on the Batman murders. I’m not even sure I have their names matched up correctly to their reports, so for now I’m not publishing the names, but I’ll give you the links to their videos and commentary.

Here’s what I’m inferring from their work. First, the heavy blood trail outside the Aurora theater, in the back parking lot, has been wrongly attributed to a neck wound suffered by one of the victims, Allie Young. When viewed in the hospital, her scar doesn’t look serious enough to account for a massive blood loss, and the wound isn’t even dressed. Why would anyone lie about this?
The guy shown all over the media immediately after the shooting and the guy seen in court… are not the same guys.

So who is he? - Courtesy of Mort Amsel

Because the blood in the parking lot may have come from a girl who was killed or abducted by one of the killers.

Knowingly or unknowingly, Obama contributed to the cover story about Allie Young in his incorrect description of her ordeal and wound.

There was a second gas mask found lying outside the theater at the back of the building. This would not have been Holmes’ mask. It would have belonged to a second killer.

I’m not saying the meaning of these clues I’ve just listed is airtight and absolutely final. I’m saying they send the case in entirely new directions.

They definitely add fuel to the conclusion that Aurora Police Chief, Daniel Oates was wrong when he issued the familiar mantra that Homes acted alone. On what basis could Oates have made that claim? Was he intentionally lying? Was he trying to save his reputation, and hiding the fact that at least one other killer was running loose, uncaptured by his men? Oates, an old New York street cop, had risen through the ranks and, as Aurora police chief, presided over a 30% reduction in the crime rate—until the Batman murders.

Major Harvard Study Published in Federal Govt Journal Confirms Fluoride Lowers IQ

By Anthony Gucciardi
Contributed and originally appeared on Natural Society
fluorideiq 235x147 Breaking: Major Harvard Study Published in Federal Govt Journal Confirms Fluoride Lowers IQIf the scientific link between fluoride exposure and a noted decreased in IQ is a conspiracy theory, then perhaps the Harvard researchers who just confirmed such a link should be tarred and feathered by the ‘evidence-based’ medical media.

In a telling review of a variety of studies that have demonstrated just how significantly fluoride can damage the brain and subsequently your IQ, Harvard University scientists stated ”our results support the possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment.”

The most outstanding component to the study is where it was published. Authors published their conclusion online in the July 20th edition of the prominent journal Environmental Health Perspectives, a federal government medical journal stemming from the United States National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences.

The very same government that has continually asserted that water fluoridation is both perfectly safe and ‘effective’ at aiding the health of citizens who consume it on a daily basis.

In the past, the US government has actually been forced to call for lower fluoridation levels as previous research had also drawn a link between fluoride exposure and a host of neurotoxic effects.

In the latest research by Harvard, it is made even more explicitly clear just how toxic fluoride can be to the body. In a written statement, researchers state:
“The children in high fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ than those who lived in low fluoride areas.”

Fluoride Lowers IQ, Sparks Tumor Growth

This should come as no surprise to those who have followed fluoride research over the past several years. As far back as 1977, for instance, epidemiological studies performed by the head of the Cytochemistry Section at the National Cancer Institute Dr. Dean Burk revealed that fluoride exposure led to increased tumor growth – even at levels as low as 1 ppm (the standard for United States drinking water). Beyond revealing an accelerated tumor growth rate of 25% in his research, fluoride was found to produce melanotic tumors, transform normal cells into cancer cells and increases the carcinogenesis of other chemicals.

Klaus Dona confirms giant bones from Ecuador

This would make the giant arond 23 feet tall!  This one is for Miss Alice and Uncle Chuck.

All these bones belonged to a 7.6 The giant's bones.meter human giant!
Klaus Dona is an artefact researcher from Austria. During his work he discovered that there were quite a lot of archaeological findings that were hard to explain. He came across some bones from Ecuador, and examinations by experts confirmed that they belonged to a 7.6 meter human giant!
It was a Canadian reader of these webpages that passed on a link to a slide show on Youtube that he had come across. It turned out to be a video of a 45 minutes slideshow by Klaus Dona, an artefact researcher from Austria, called "The Hidden History of the Human Race".
Klaus Dona
Klaus Dona
Interesting indeed

- It's data-rich, detailed, intensive, absorbing, and may contain more startling information about the history of the human race in one place than any other video you've ever seen, writes Bill Ryan of Project Avalon who made the interview.

   It was very interesting indeed. Klaus Dona was also mentioning giants at the end of the slideshow - and what caught my attention was the story of Father Carlos Vaca, who was working as a priest in hospitals in Ecuador, South America. In 1964 a part of a mountain in the province Loja broke down and he was called to see the bones people had found - the broken bones of a giant.

There were some pictures at the same time as Dona's narrative but they showed skeletons of legendary giants, not broken bones. So I clicked on a link to Klaus Dona's own webpages "Unexplained Mysteries" and there I could see the picture of the bone fragments and read more about the priest and what he had found.

Lived on earth

I am trying to show that human giants have lived on earth, and I thought that this might be another proof - if I just could get Klaus Dona to confirm the story and the picture. So I send an email to the Austrian researcher, and he was kind enough to reply!

   - I confirm that the photo Reinhard Habeck took of some giants bones is real, writes Dona.
It turned out that Father Vaca had taken care of some of the bones and they were found at his estate after he passed away. Klaus Dona was able to take some of the bones with him to Austria for his exhibition "Unsolved Mysteries", and he had several experts checking them. One of the pieces was identified as a human heel-bone and one as a human bone that can be found under the skull.

   - All these bones belonged to a 7.6 meter human giant, explained Dona.

Too old

They have not yet made any age dating but tried to get a DNA analysis. It turned out impossible to get a DNA-sample form the bones and the archaeological DNA-expert thought they might be too old.

   There you are. Klaus Dona have managed to take picture of and examine bones from Ecuador said to be of a giant human - and experts have confirmed that they in fact are human bones. And would belong to a person 7.6 meters tall!

The Attack On Chick-Fil-A Is An Attack On The Freedom Of Speech Of Every American

Once again, major props to Chick-Fil-A for their unwavering stance on Biblical values and their stand against gay marriage.  Christians cannot support sin, and homosexuality is 1) a choice and  2) a sin.  Why not support the marriage of thieves?  Or murderers?  Or adulterers?  (Wait, I take that back.  Hollywood already does support that.)  You get the point.  And kudos to Chick-Fil-A's support of Exodus International, a Christian group composed of many former homosexuals who have been freed and now practice a heterosexual lifestyle.  For more on Exodus and their work, go to http://exodusinternational.org/.

Michael Snyder
The American Dream
If you are an American, your freedom of speech is under attack. Over the past week, remarks made by Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy defending traditional marriage have sparked controversy all over the nation.

Many Americans have expressed support for his remarks and many have expressed disdain for his remarks. And all of that is fine, because in the United States people are supposed to be able to express their opinions. But in Chicago, Boston and other U.S. cities, politicians are actually promising to keep any more Chick-fil-A stores from opening because their CEO does not support gay marriage, and that crosses the line.  When politicians threaten to ban a business from their cities just because the CEO does not hold the “politically correct” position on a social issue that is an attack on the freedom of speech of every American. You see, the truth is that the enforcers of political correctness in America are very “tolerant” except when somebody disagrees with them. The politically correct control freaks that are trying to ban Chick-fil-A from their cities would try to ban Chick-fil-A from opening any more restaurants in the entire country if they had the power to do so. The goal of these politically correct control freaks is to intimidate. They want to end debate on these social issues by shutting down the free speech of the opposition. In the end, if America continues to go down this path it will end up looking just like many of the other totalitarian regimes throughout history where free speech has been banned.

Once again, in America everyone has the right to say whatever they want to about Chick-fil-A.

However, when politicians try to ban a company from doing business in their areas because one of the company executives does not hold the “correct” political view about an issue that is a major problem.

This week, Chicago alderman Joe Moreno wrote a piece for the Chicago Tribune in which he explained why he is going to refuse to allow Chick-fil-A to open a new restaurant in his ward….
There are consequences for one’s actions, statements and beliefs. Because of this man’s ignorance, I will deny Chick-fil-A a permit to open a restaurant in my ward.
Apparently he has the power to single-handedly block the new restaurant that Chick-fil-A was hoping to open up….
Home Depot in the 2500 block of North Elston Avenue wants to sell a piece of its land so that a Chick-fil-A restaurant can open in the 1st Ward, where I am alderman. It would be the fast-food chain’s first “stand-alone” Chicago restaurant. But to subdivide the land, the companies need my approval.
Because the CEO of Chick-fil-A will not conform to Joe Moreno’s social values, Chick-fil-A is now essentially banned from that entire section of Chicago.
Not that Chick-fil-A will be able to open up new stores in other areas of Chicago either.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is promising to do what he can to keep Chick-fil-A from expanding any further in Chicago….
“Chick-fil-A’s values are not Chicago values. They’re not respectful of our residents, our neighbors and our family members. And if you’re gonna be part of the Chicago community, you should reflect Chicago values”
Apparently anyone that does not believe in gay marriage does not “reflect Chicago values”.

But this is just the beginning. One group is trying to have Chick-fil-A kicked off of college campuses all over America. The following is from a recent CBS News article….
The gay rights group Equality Illinois is launching a campaign against Chick-Fil-A – petitioning universities and lawmakers to evict the fast food restaurant from their campuses and planning a “kiss-in” campaign by gay and lesbian couples outside Chick-Fil-A restaurants.
The message is clearly one of intimidation.
Either conform or suffer the consequences.
Sadly, politicians all over America are reacting just like politicians in Chicago have done.
The Mayor of Boston, Thomas Menino, has pledged to do all that he can to keep Chick-Fil-A out of the entire city of Boston. The following is what he told the Boston Herald on Thursday….
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston. You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion”
But Chick-fil-A does not discriminate.

They serve anyone that wants a chicken burger and they are open to hiring anyone.
It is just that the CEO of the company does not think gay marriage is a good idea (along with half of the rest of America) and this absolutely infuriates the politically correct crowd.

On Thursday Mayor Menino also added the following….
“That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”

Foreign Troops to Confiscate American Guns Under UN Treaty

If you know anything about gun owners in America, you know that about half of them will be willing to give up their gun, after unloading every round they have into whomever is trying to take them.  If you hear of this coming, you know that the day it begins will be the beginning of all out war in America.  We need to always keep in mind that those who hold power desire chaos, that they might bring the order they want out of it.  They are driving the country into chaos intentionally.   Watch and pray...

Aaron Dykes

“Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order … tomorrow they will be grateful.” -Attributed to Henry Kissinger during the 1991 Bilderberg meeting

For those who’ve been wondering how the domestic gun grabbers or the United Nations think they’re going to get away with gun control here at home, one need look no further than Article 15 of the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty.
Many American troops are patriots who understand their oaths to uphold the Constitution, so they can’t be counted upon to confiscate guns. But foreign troops are another story.
Article 15 of the UN Arms Trade Treaty, if ratified, provides for foreign “assistance to implement the Treaty,” and mandates that nations who can provide requested support must do so if requested by member nations. That includes legal, financial, technical as well as “material” assistance to enforce a treaty that declares “recreational, cultural, historical and sporting activities” to be the “exclusively” recognized reasons for lawful private ownership, and which further recognizes the “inherent rights” of the State (i.e. nations under the treaty) to self-defense, but makes no mention of the rights of the individual.
Read the language of Article 15 for yourself:

Article 15
International Assistance
In fulfilling the obligation of this Treaty, States Parties may seek, inter alia, legal assistance, legislative assistance, technical assistance, institutional capacity building, material assistance or financial assistance. States, in a position to do so, shall provide such assistance. States Parties may contribute resources to a voluntary trust fund to assist requesting States Parties requiring such assistance to implement the Treaty.
States Parties shall afford one another the widest measure of assistance, consistent with their respective legal and administrative systems, in investigations, prosecutions and judicial proceedings in relation to the violations of the national measures implemented to comply with obligations under of the provisions of this Treaty.
Each State Party may offer or receive assistance, inter alia, through the United Nations international, regional, subregional or national organizations, non-governmental organizations or on a bi-lateral basis. Such assistance may include technical, financial, material and other forms of assistance as needed, upon request.

Will foreign troops be going door-to-door to ensure compliance with new gun registry policies, imposed limits on ammunition and magazines, or in enforcing outright confiscation? Joint training exercises conducted between U.S. armed forces and various foreign armies have trained to do just that.
In 2010, the Infowars crew covered Operation Vigilant Guard, a joint training exercise in Chicago, in which U.S. troops drilled with Eastern bloc troops to partner in stopping terrorism, dealing with meth dealers and WMDs, as well as in gun confiscation. Countless other exercises have taken place on U.S. soil involving similar joint operations for a martial law occupation with the participation of foreign troops:

New report suggests summer storms could create new ozone holes

Posted by The Extinction
July 27, 2012CLIMATESummer storms may create new holes in our protective ozone layer as Earth heats up—bringing increased solar ultraviolet radiation to densely populated areas, a new study says. What’s more, if more sunlight reaches Earth, skin cancer could become the new marquee risk of global warming. As the planet warms, some studies have suggested summer storms may become more frequent and intense. This would send more water vapor—a potent greenhouse gas—into the stratosphere, the middle layer of Earth’s atmosphere, which sits between 9 and 22 miles (14 and 35 kilometers) above Earth’s surface. In a recent series of research flights over the United States, Harvard University atmospheric chemist James Anderson and colleagues found that summer storms often loft water vapor into the stratosphere. “It was an unequivocal observation,’ he said. “We had a number of flights, and this was an abiding feature” of the storms. Under the right conditions, this water vapor could trigger chemical reactions that deplete the ozone layer, which prevents harmful ultraviolet rays from reaching Earth’s surface, the study says. Even small reductions in the ozone layer can make people more susceptible to skin cancer and eye damage, experts say. The finding concerned Anderson, whose research in the 1980s and ‘90s played a pivotal role in establishing the Montreal Protocol. The international treaty phased out the production of ozone-depleting chemicals called chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), which were found in a variety of products, including hairsprays and refrigerators. CFCs produce a form of chlorine that degrades ozone particles in the stratosphere, most significantly over the Arctic and Antarctic. Subsequent studies in the Arctic and in the laboratory revealed that both temperature and water vapor concentrations are crucial in a chemical reaction that makes chlorine attack ozone. Now, the new observations over the United States suggest summer storms create the same combination of temperature and water vapor conditions at mid-latitudes. “We essentially have the chemistry that’s present in the Arctic that is clearly very potent for destroying ozone,” Anderson said. The findings, published today in the journal Science, calculate ozone loss at a rate between 4 and 6 percent per day in water vapor-rich areas of the stratosphere. The effect could persist for several weeks after a storm, he added. What worries Anderson most is where and when this phenomenon appears to occur. “It is not ozone loss in Antarctica and the Arctic under winter conditions. It is an attack on the ozone layer in the summer over populated regions of the Northern Hemisphere,” he said. –National Geographic

Real Refreshment Comes from Seeing Glory, Not Getting Stuff Done

byJon Bloom

Cursed are the anxieties that choke the word and blind us to glory and true joy. Even the anxieties over things legitimate in themselves (Luke 10:40-42).

They frequently surround us and constantly demand our attention. The meal needs to be made, the car needs cleaning, the garage is out of control. Let’s not talk about the laundry room. Are you ever going to read that parenting book? You’re not saving enough for retirement! When are you going to complete that course? Have you updated your will yet? Has the child finished his chores? Oh for goodness’ sake, look at the bathroom!

Legitimate things all of them, and a thousand others like them. None of them is wrong to do in themselves. In fact, most of them need to be done at some point. And yet any one of them, or the compounding pressure of all of them, can produce acts of faithlessness because they make us anxious and troubled and they siphon off our fleeting time, our fleeting life, in these evil days (Ephesians 5:16).

Beware, “the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word” (Matthew 13:22). Cares choke the word. And when we’re choking, we can’t see the glory the word reveals. We might know about glorious things, but if knowing doesn’t produce seeing, it does us little good.

So what do you do when you feel like you’re choking? You do what Mary did in Luke 10:39. You carve out time to set the demanding tasks aside and sit at Jesus’ feet and listen and look.

But you’re not going to feel like it. You’ll feel like getting the stuff done. Getting stuff done will promise you relief, but don’t believe it. It won’t deliver much. More stuff is lining up behind the stuff currently shouting at you. Stuff will steal your life if you let it.

Real relief is in seeing real glory. Because in seeing the “good portion” (Luke 10:42) of the glory of Jesus, in really hearing his refreshing word, your priorities shift. You see your life in eternal perspective. The voices of demanding stuff diminish in volume and compulsion.

Bill Gates funds scheme to spray artificial 'planet-cooling' sulfur particles into atmosphere

We are seeing the government begin to announce it's "geo-engineering" (chemtrail) programs, which is really bad news for us who aren't billionaires.  Anything, anything they spray is unnatural, and therefore likely to have serious side effects.  The fact they are announcing this means that the spraying will only be heavier than it's been up until now. 
Chemtrails over Daytona Beach, Florida

 by: Ethan A. Huff

NaturalNews) Geo-engineers are finally coming out of the "chemtrail" closet, as reports are now emerging about deliberate plans in the works to dump untold tons of sulfate chemicals into the atmosphere for the purported purpose of fighting so-called "global warming."

The U.K.'s Guardian and others are reporting that a multi-million dollar research fund, which just so happens to have been started and funded by Microsoft founder and vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates, is being used to fund the project. A large balloon hovering at 80,000 feet over Fort Sumner, New Mexico, will release the sulfates into the atmosphere within the next year.

The stated purpose for this massive release of toxic sulfate particles is that doing so will allegedly reflect sunlight back into the atmosphere, and thus cool the planet. But many environmental groups and advocates of common sense are decrying the idea as dangerous, and one that could result in permanent damage to ecosystems all across the globe.

"Impacts include the potential for further damage to the ozone layer, and disruption of rainfall, particularly in tropical and subtropical regions, potentially threatening the food supplies of billions of people," said Pat Mooney, Executive Director of the ETC Group, a Canadian environmental protection group.

"It will do nothing to decrease levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere or halt ocean acidification. And solar geo-engineering is likely to increase the risk of climate-related international conflict, given that the modeling to date shows it poses greater risks to the global south."

But the Gates-backed cohort is persistent in its efforts to geo-graffiti the world, as its scientists insist that governments are not doing enough to fight back against the supposed environment impacts of global warming. If governments refuse to implement high enough carbon taxes to eliminate greenhouse gases, in other words, then Gates and Co. believes it has no choice but to "save the planet" by polluting it with sulfate particles.

Spraying the skies with sulfate particles will destroy the planet faster than 'global warming' ever could

Sulfate particles are toxic, though, and constitute the very same type of ambient particulate matter (PM) that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers to be a noxious air pollutant. Deliberately spraying the skies with tiny particles composed of any material, for that matter, is hazardous both to respiratory health in humans and animals, as well as to water sources, soils, and other delicate environmental resources.

"Sulfate particles from acid rain can cause harm to the health of marine life in the rivers and lakes it contaminates, and can result in mortality," says an online water pollution guide (http://www.water-pollution.org.uk/health.html). A University of Washington (UW) report also explains that sulfate particles "contribute to acid rain, cause lung irritation, and have been a main culprit in causing the haze that obscures a clear view of the Grand Canyon."

Blocking the sun with reflective particles will also deprive humans of natural sunlight exposure, which is a primary source for naturally generating health-promoting vitamin D in the body. So once again, Bill Gates is at the helms of a project that seeks to control the climate in artificial ways using toxic chemicals, an endeavor that is sure to create all sorts of potentially irreversible problems for humanity and the planet.

US government ran chemical experiments on military veterans

This isn't new information, but it's important as many people as possible know this.  There is a bizarre belief among many Americans that the government and military would never do anything to harm it's own.  History tells us this simply isn't true.
Human experimentation in Project MK Ultra

 by: J. D. Heyes

NaturalNews) The United States, for its warts, has achieved much in its short 230-plus year history. It is a benevolent world superpower, for the most part, that serves as a beacon of hope and freedom for an increasingly oppressed world, even as it serves as a guardian against tyranny for as many as half of the world's nearly seven billion people.

But a few chapters in our history - slavery, oppression of the Native American tribes, causes of the civil rights movement, and moments of unconstitutionality on the part of our elected leaders - serve as more than simple blemishes on an otherwise admirable record of defending liberty and freedom. One such stain is the way we've treated some of our nation's military veterans.

The maltreatment is summed up in a recent federal case. In late July, a group of veterans managed to win a court order forcing the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to hand over a trove of documents detailing the department's alleged Cold War-era drug experiments on Vietnam vets. What's problematic about this case isn't the decision - the VA owes these veterans any answers they are seeking - but the fact that the case had to be filed at all.

'Project Paperclip'

According to court documents, U.S. Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley, in Oakland, Calif., said in her ruling that the documents requested by the veteran-plaintiffs were "squarely relevant" to their claim that the government, through the VA, did not adequately notify veterans of chemicals they were purposely exposed to during experimentation, and - perhaps more importantly - what effects that exposure might have had on their physical and mental health.

Details of this sad episode in our history were contained in a 2009 class action suit. Filed by the Vietnam Veterans of America and individual soldiers, the suit charges the U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency, with the help of former Nazi scientists, of using at least 7,800 vets as guinea pigs to test the effects of as many as 400 different types of drugs and chemicals. They included mescaline (psychedelic alkaloid), LSD (psychedelic drug), amphetamines, barbiturates, nerve agents and mustard gas.

The suit also says the government worked to cover up the testing and the nature of its experiments, which began in the 1950s under such exotic code names as "Bluebird," "Artichoke" and MKUltra."

The government launched "Project Paperclip," the suit alleges, an all-out effort by the Army and CIA to allegedly recruit former Nazi scientists to help test various psycho-chemicals, as well as develop a new truth serum using the nation's own vets as test subjects, Courthouse News Service reported.

"Over half of these Nazi recruits had been members of the SS or Nazi Party," said the class-action suit. "The 'Paperclip' name was chosen because so many of the employment applications were clipped to immigration papers."

According to Colin A. Ross, a psychiatrist and author of "The CIA Doctors," said he pored over more than 15,000 documents he received from the nation's premier spy agency detailing the "mind control" operations which he said took place between 1950-1972 "at many leading universities including Harvard, Yale, Cornell, Johns Hopkins and Stanford."

The goal, simply, is mind control

In a report posted on the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International's Web site, Ross said "MKUltra and related programs had several over-lapping purposes."

"One was to purchase mind control drugs from suppliers. Another was to form relationships with researchers who might later be used as consultants at the TOP SECRET level," he wrote. "The core purpose of these programs was to learn how to enhance interrogations, erase and insert memories, and create and run Manchurian Candidates."

Ross said all of that is documented "clearly and explicitly" in the declassified CIA documents he obtained, though he said it was merely "a glimpse into the tip of the iceberg of CIA and military mind control."

"The experimental subjects were not told the real purpose of the experiments, did not give informed consent, were not afforded outside counsel and received no meaningful follow-up," he wrote. "As described by the psychiatrists in published papers, experiments with LSD and other hallucinogens, combined with sensory deprivation, electroshock and other interrogation techniques, resulted in psychosis and death among other 'side effects.' The purpose of these experiments was to see how easily a person could be put into a psychotic state or controlled."

In a review of the MKUltra program, which was launched in 1953, Wired.com said its goal was, simply, mind-control.

"1953: The agency launches one of its most dubious covert programs ever, turning unsuspecting humans into guinea pigs for its research into mind-altering drugs," said the report, which said then-Central Intelligence Agency director Allen Dulles authorized the program.

"Dulles wanted to close the 'brainwashing gap' that arose after the United States learned that American prisoners of war in Korea were subjected to mind-control techniques by their captors," said Wired.com.

Does God Love Us By Sending Us Pain?

byTony Reinke 

Slate recently reported that spanking children may not be such a bad form of discipline after all. Surprisingly, the reporter pushed past a lot of the cultural anti-spanking prejudice to ask some reasonable questions about what the studies indicate. Although it appears she has not been persuaded to spank her own child, and she chooses to end the piece with a touch of doomsday, she maintains a level of clearheadedness in much of the article.

But I suspected at some point the article would get awkward, because discussions on discipline always do. There comes a point when you must define spanking, you must explain what spanking is and that can only be done by explaining what it looks like in practice. And when this particular reporter gets right down to it, her definition of discipline is to “(lightly) spank your kids with the palm of your hand several times.”
There was no elaboration, so I’m not exactly sure what that means to “(lightly) spank.” And how many is "several times"? What is clear, even from this fairly open voice in the media, is a reluctance to define spanking as anything that brings to a child, say, a sharp stinging sensation on the rear (see, I told you it gets awkward).

Sixteen years ago, Douglas Wilson noted this trend inside the church. “Many Christian parents do not really spank," he wrote, "but simply go through the motions — tippy, tap, tippy, tap — on the top of the diapers. It does not take the child very long to figure out this does not hurt.” What’s the problem with this? “When there is no pain in discipline, there is a chronic unpleasantness in the home rather than acute pain. Discipline must be a memorable event; it is not effective as a low-grade unpleasantness” (124).

Or to say it another way, discipline that does not hurt is not discipline (Hebrews 12:11).

What I find so interesting about this discussion is how it digs down to expose the roots of our theology and forces a much bigger question onto the table: Does God purposefully and intentionally send stinging pain into my life? For those addressed in Hebrews 12:3–11, the answer was “yes,” the strong opposition to their faith and their persecution was an experience of God’s loving discipline. God wanted to grab their attention.

Perhaps we prefer that our Heavenly Father delivers only a “tippy, tap, tippy, tap” or “light pressure.” And that’s all we want to attribute to God. But the really hard and painful times of suffering in life — those memorably painful times — may be stinging discipline from our Heavenly Father.

On one hand, we need to be careful in how we interpret providence in our lives and in the lives of others (see John 9:1–3). But we also need a category for “sharp and memorable pain” in our lives as an expression of God’s love for us. And until that point of theology becomes settled for us, trying to define parental discipline for children will be really hard to figure out.

The 4 Horsemen of the High-Tech Apocalypse

AAPL, IBM, AMZN, SI will put the robots in power

I recently penned an article about how during the past two decades, tech innovations have gutted our job market, upending industries from media to retailing to manufacturing. The Atlantic also had a story out last week about “The Post-Employee Economy” that discusses how high-tech means allow for big savings for consumers and big gains for productivity … but very little hope for labor and the prospect of jobs.

But that stuff is mild compared to a CNN post I just stumbled across from May that kicks around the idea that losing our jobs to computers actually might be a good thing. Someone actually muses that, “In my opinion, many of the jobs that are being fought over by unions today are jobs that will be outlawed within several generations as inhumane.”

Really? Tell that to an out-of-work roofer just hoping for a paycheck to get by in 2012.
Of course, you can’t put the toothpaste back in the tube. Technology is on the march, and its consequences are unavoidable. So I thought I’d take the natural next step here as an investor. After all, if we’re going to lose our jobs to computers, we might as well invest in the companies that make the job killers … right?

Here are my picks for the four horsemen of the high-tech apocalypse: Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL), IBM (NYSE:IBM), Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) and Siemens (NYSE:SI).

Apple — Media and Communication

Apple blew up the music industry with its iPod. It has redefined mobile communications with its iPhone and iPad. And its aggressive tactics that shave 30% off app profits (after developers jump through Apple’s approval hoops) and squeeze publishers, bands and other content creators ensure Apple keeps a stranglehold on nearly every media channel.

Click to Enlarge
Of course, alternative methods of communication and entertainment still exist … for now. But the problem is that the only way companies can compete with Apple is to abandon profitability altogether. As Horace Dediu of Asymco points out, Apple makes just under 9% of all cell phones worldwide, but iPhones pull in 75% of profit made by all makers. Check out what that looks like:

If you believe in a computer takeover, then you should believe that we’ll writing emails about it, reading about it, listening to podcasts about it and watching video about it on Apple products.

Well … if the machines don’t censor us first, of course.

The Martyrdom Of Ignatius - A Pattern To Follow

Ignatius of Antioch
Earliest post-New Testament martyr

"Now I begin to be a disciple. … Let fire and cross, flocks of beasts, broken bones, dismemberment … come upon me, so long as I attain to Jesus Christ."

Ignatius was going to die. He knew it. He wanted it. The only possible problem, as he saw it, was meddling Christians.

B.C. Birth of Jesus
Death of Augustus
Crucifixion of Jesus; Pentecost
Ignatius born
Ignatius dies
Papias is bishop of Hierapolis

"I fear your kindness, which may harm me," he wrote to Roman Christians hoping to free him. "You may be able to achieve what you plan. But if you pay no heed to my request, it will be very difficult for me to attain unto God." And that was truly Ignatius's goal: to imitate "our God Jesus Christ" in death. If Christians really wanted to do something, they should pray that he would remain faithful. "If you remain silent about me, I shall become a word of God. But if you allow yourselves to be swayed by the love in which you hold my flesh, I shall again be no more than a human voice."

That Ignatius truly wanted to die was about as much as we know about his martyrdom. It's not even known for certain that he was killed, though that's likely.

As the second (or third) bishop of Antioch, one of the most important churches of the day, he was certainly one of the most prominent Christians of the time immediately succeeding the apostles. But Antioch was also home to some religious debates, and while Ignatius denounced division as "the beginning of evil," the bishop engaged in debate with tenacity.

To the Magnesian church (near Ephesus) he wrote scathingly of the Ebionites, who demanded the keeping of Jewish regulations. "It is outrageous to utter the name of Jesus Christ and live in Judaism." Similar attacks were launched against the Docetists, who believed Christ only appeared to be human. Anyone believing such nonsense that Christ only seemed to suffer could not truly be called a martyr, he asserted.

He was probably arrested on the charge of "atheism"—denial of the Roman gods—and was taken from Antioch to Rome by an escort of ten soldiers. At nearly every stop, he met leaders of local churches, and during the trip he penned, with the help of a secretary, seven letters.

Though most famous for being one of the church's earliest martyrs, his letters also served to record the rapid development of church hierarchy. "Follow, all of you, the bishop, as Jesus Christ followed the Father," he wrote to Polycarp's church at Smyrna (now Izmir, Turkey). "Wherever the bishop appears, there let the people be, even as wheresoever Christ Jesus is, there is the catholic church. It is not lawful apart from the bishop either to baptize or to hold a love-feast [church meal]," he continued in his letter to Smyrna. The instruction is also remarkable because it is the first recorded use of the phrase "catholic [meaning, universal] church." (He was also the first outside the New Testament to speak of Jesus' virgin birth.)

The details of Ignatius's death are lost to history, but not his desire to have his life count for something: "Now I begin to be a disciple … Let fire and cross, flocks of beasts, broken bones, dismemberment … come upon me, so long as I attain to Jesus Christ."

Synchronicity in the Aurora Shooting

Courtesy of Sheilaaliens youtube channel.  Holmes actually studied "temporal illusions", or a type of time travel in which you use your mind to alter the past.  A recent video shows his presentation of this as a teen.  Someone who studies this topic at any great length would have great trouble distinguishing what is reality.

Return Of The Nephilim - Part 2

This is an excerpt from G.H.Pember's classic "Earth's Earliest Ages". 

"The influences of the Spirit of God are even now in process of withdrawal, as He prepares for that departure from earth which will leave it open for Nephilim, seven fold worse than those who formerly dwelt in it, to enter, and for a short season to work their will upon the human race… Then will all the Nephilim, who are yet at liberty, be among men, and will quickly make them feel the meaning of that awful utterance, 'Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the Devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.'"
~ G.H. Pember

As far back as the beginning of time and within every major culture of the ancient world, the astonishingly consistent story is told of “gods” who descended from heaven and materialized in bodies of flesh. From Rome to Greece—and before that, to Egypt, Persia, Assyria, Babylonia, and Sumer—the earliest records of civilization tell of the era when powerful beings known to the Hebrews as “Watchers” and in the book of Genesis as the b’nai ha Elohim (“sons of God”) mingled themselves with humans, giving birth to part-celestial, part-terrestrial hybrids known as “Nephilim.” When English theologian George Hawkins Pember, in his 1876 masterpiece, Earth’s Earliest Ages, analyzed the prophecy of Jesus Christ in Matthew 24 that says the end times would be a repeat of “the days of Noah,” he concluded the final and most fearful sign heralding the Lord's Second Coming would be the return of the Nephilim, “the appearance upon earth of beings from the Principality of the Air, and their unlawful intercourse with the human race.”

Jesus Himself, in answering His disciples concerning the signs of His coming and of the end of the world, verified it would be “as the days of [Noah] were” (Matthew 24:37). The implication is, just as it was before the Flood when the spirits of Nephilim were powerful upon earth (Genesis 6:4), mankind would experience an end-times renaissance of the influence of these entities.

Does a curious verse in the book of Daniel validate Pember's thesis? Speaking of the last days of human government, Daniel said: “They shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay” (Daniel 2:43).

While Daniel does not explain who “they” that “mingle themselves with the seed of men” are, the personal pronoun “they” raises questions over what (or who) in the end times ‘mingle with the seed of men?’ Who are these non-human seed? It staggers the mind to contemplate how the same phenomenon that occurred in Genesis chapter 6, where nonhuman species or “nonseed” mingled with human seed and produced Nephilim could happen again in the end times. Yet when this verse from Daniel is coupled with Genesis 3:15, which says, “And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed [zera, meaning “offspring,” “descendents,” or “children”] and her seed,” an incredible tenet emerges—that Satan has seed, that it is at enmity with Christ, and that it is set to return in these last days.

Has the time of their coming arrived?


George Hawkins Pember (1836 - 1910), was an English theologian and author affiliated with the Plymouth Brethren. His works included The Antichrist, Babylon and the Coming Kingdom, The Great Prophecies of the centuries concerning Israel and the Gentiles, Mystery Babylon the Great, and others. Earth's Earliest Ages is considered by many his Magnum Opus and has been touted worldwide as a classical masterpiece... and end-times warning.

'Mysterious Force' Blocks Car Remotes in Yonkers, NY

We have seen this in the past year, from Colorado, Great Britain and Spain.  A local jamming device is probable, but the scary possibility is a projected jamming, the ability to shut down specific electronics in a small area from a satellite or earth based station.

Artificial jellyfish made from rat heart

I'm sure the fine folks creating lifeforms in the labs will only make good creatures, beneficial to all mankind.  If they are doing this, can you imagine what they have already done in engineering new or genetically altered humans?

A team led by researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) and Harvard University have built this remarkable display of modern bioengineering – a completely engineered jellyfish that blends both living and non-living parts, masterfully fitted together. Called the medusoid, this cyborg jellyfish was created using silicone and muscle cells from a rat’s heart, and surprisingly, it can move and behave exactly like its living, biological counterpart, as seen in the video above.
“Morphologically, we’ve built a jellyfish. Functionally, we’ve built a jellyfish. Genetically, this thing is a rat,” says Kit Parker, a biophysicist at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the work.
MedusoidJellyfish are believed to be the oldest multi-organ animals in the world, possibly existing on Earth for the past 500 million years. They can swim with rhythmical contractions of the bell (muscles) that propel it with the force of the water pushed from inside the bell, sort of like jet propelling does with air jets, the action creates an equal and opposite reaction. This is very similar to how the human heart functions at a principle level, making it a viable candidate to model and analyze for tissue engineering purposes.
And Parker along with colleagues from the lab, where they work on creating artificial models of human heart tissues for regenerating organs and testing drugs, didn’t waste one moment after recognizing the jellyfish’s potential.
“It occurred to me in 2007 that we might have failed to understand the fundamental laws of muscular pumps,” says Kevin Kit Parker, Tarr Family Professor of Bioengineering and Applied Physics at Harvard and a coauthor of the study. “I started looking at marine organisms that pump to survive. Then I saw a jellyfish at the New England Aquarium, and I immediately noted both similarities and differences between how the jellyfish pumps and the human heart. The similarities help reveal what you need to do to design a bio-inspired pump.”
The scientists enlisted Caltech biotechnology researcher Janna Nawroth for their jellyfish-emulating cause. Nawroth performed most of the experiments, including the mapping of every cell in the bodies of juvenile moon jellies (Aurelia aurita), indispensable to understanding the animal’s propulsion system.
The team looked at an array of possible materials they could use to fashion their synthetic jellyfish; eventually they settled for a silicone polymer that makes up the body of the Medusoid into a thin membrane that resembles a small jellyfish, with eight arm-like appendage. The scientists then grew and applied a single layer of rat heart muscle on the patterned sheet of silicone.
The swimming behaviour of the Medusoid closely mimics that of the real thing

The medusoid was inserted in an electrically conducting container of fluid and placed between two electrodes. The current was oscillated from zero volts to five volts, and the medusoid began to swim with synchronized contractions that mimic those of real jellyfish.
“I was surprised that with relatively few components—a silicone base and cells that we arranged—we were able to reproduce some pretty complex swimming and feeding behaviors that you see in biological jellyfish,” says John Dabiri, a bioengineer who studies biological propulsion at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena. “I’m pleasantly surprised at how close we are getting to matching the natural biological performance, but also that we’re seeing ways in which we can probably improve on that natural performance. The process of evolution missed a lot of good solutions.”
Parker says his team is taking synthetic biology to a new level. “Usually when we talk about synthetic life forms, somebody will take a living cell and put new genes in. We built an animal. It’s not just about genes, but about morphology and function.”
The team’s next goal is to design a completely self-contained system that is able to sense and actuate on its own using internal signals, as human hearts do. “You’ve got a heart drug?” says Parker. “You let me put it on my jellyfish, and I’ll tell you if it can improve the pumping.”
The findings were reported in the journal Nature Biotechnology.

Air Force to begin testing drone-fired lasers over North Dakota

Drones with lasers being tested in our skies.  The future is here, and it's not looking good for us.

On July 26, the U.S. Air National Guard will get the green light to begin firing lasers from unmanned attack drones in a vast swath of skies over North Dakota, despite the concerns of local commercial pilots.

At the Devils Lake home of the North Dakota Army National Guard, pilots train on MQ-1 Predator drones -- the most prevalent unmanned attack vehicle in the military arsenal. In late June the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) published an updated set of rules and regulations covering Devils Lake, creating several large restricted airspaces over the Camp Gilbert C. Grafton military base.

Incognito Supercomputers and the Singularity

For those wondering what the singularity is, it's the point where computers become capable of programming themselves, making decisions without a programmer.  Think the Terminator series, The Matrix, etc.  While those possiblities are frightening, and rightly so, few recognize the near-term effects, like the decreasing need for humans to do work of any kind.  When computers can make functioning workers, who needs man?

By Dominic Basulto
Thanks to rapid advancements in artificial intelligence and computer processing ability, machines are now evolving faster than humans. At some point within the next decade, according to proponents of the Singularity, machines will become so intelligent that they will start making decisions for us in ways that we could never imagine or understand. The conventional wisdom, of course, is that humans will be able to recognize that day and adjust things accordingly so that we’re still in charge here on Earth. (Isn’t that what the Turing Test was for?) As the line between human intelligence and machine intelligence continues to blur, though, it is no longer so obvious that we will we be able to recognize that day when our machines are smarter than us. The supercomputers will be in control and incognito.

Being relegated to the #2 intelligent species on the planet by unrecognizable supercomputers could be a downright scary proposition. At least that’s the provocative thesis that some – like Jaan Tallinn (a founding engineer of Skype and Kazaa) – have put forth. As Tallinn explains it, all of these rapid gains in computer intelligence have a drawback: computers may decide that they are smarter than humans and start to make decisions for us in ways that threaten our future existence – in much the same way that humans have been making decisions for other species on Earth with all of our relentless industrialization. For example, computers could decide to start terraforming the Earth in order to protect future generations of humans – or they could decide that what’s good for our brains (eternal smiles and everlasting happiness) is just not possible with our bodies as currently configured.

The Singularity is not something to be feared – just something to be respected. Just like Prometheus and the gift of fire – you have to respect the gift and understand what it means for the future evolution of mankind. Computing super-intelligence is like the fire from the gods, and when you play with fire... well, you get the idea.
We can see signs of computing super-intelligence all around us, every day – but only in situations that humans have artificially created. For example, take chess. Chess is a human-created game with human-created rules – so we can easily judge machine intelligence by the degree to which computers are able to defeat humans in the game of chess. The same is true of a game like Jeopardy! – we have a clear and easy way to judge whether computers are superior to humans because there is a single outcome and an easily determined winner. Even in simple things – like asking a mobile phone app to choose the optimized path to drive to work – we may admit that computers are superior to us, but don’t feel much threatened by it, because there's not much at stake and we can recognize when something doesn't make sense.

But we are starting to use computers for situations other than chess or automated driving decisions, where the outcomes are not so clear-cut, and where humans have something very clear to lose or gain by a computer’s decision. When it comes to medicine, for example, the same artificial intelligence engine used to play chess is now being used to consult on diseases. Your future health could be intertwined with a future decision made by a bunch of silicon. Or, take the financial markets. Computerized algorithmic trading means that computers can trade faster and more effectively than humans, putting the fate of billion-dollar corporations literally in the (silicon) hands of computers. The idea of computers rationally and effectively figuring out the proper valuation of every business in the world may sound exhilarating – until you run into a “flash crash” every now and then.

But maybe all those “flash crashes” and other hiccups are actually good things – they are subtle clues that humans can still recognize the machines around them. One day, however, humans may not be able to recognize when computers are making the decisions for us: "If you build machines that understand what humans are and they really have some distorted view of what we want, then we might end up being alive but not controlling the future." Or, scarier even than the prospect of incognito supercomputers, we may not be able to understand why these computers are making certain decisions because they are just so much smarter than us. When that day comes, most of humanity may already be living inside the Matrix -- with the rest of us headed out to explore deep space with David and the next generation of Weyland robots on the Prometheus.

Does The Queen of England Hold The Throne of Israel?

I hope to put lots of info out about this topic.  Some more enlightened writers of times past, like William Blake, held that England was now Jerusalem, and heir to the promises God made to Israel.  Queen Elizabeth was coronated as the Queen of England as well as the Queen of Israel in 1953.  No wonder the current State of Israel has not welcomed her to visit.

One more thought.  Thomas Paine, the founders great atheist said he turned his back on the Bible because the Lord had not kept His promises to David concerning the Throne of David and always having a descendant to sit on said throne.  However, this would be a possible answer to Paine's dilemma.  There is no doubt the Irish, Scots and Brits involved in history and royal family lines have believed this for a very long time.

The Lord promised that the line of David would continue to occupy the throne of Israel "until He come whose right it is; and I will give it Him."
Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is a reminder that the Sceptre of Judah still exercises its Royal prerogative over the servant nation of God's immutable choice.
The Coronation of the Queen of England and Israel?

Just what lies behind the British monarchy and how old is it? We can trace it back along its line of descent to Kenneth MacAlpin, the first King of Scotland, to the kings of Ireland, back to Heremon, the husband of Tea Tephi, who was the daughter of King Zedekiah of Judah, and thence back to David, appointed King of Israel in the eleventh century B.C.

Nathan the prophet, by command of God, said to David: "Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I took thee from the sheepcote, from following the sheep, to be ruler over my people, over Israel ... Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more as beforetime ... And thine house and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever" (2 SAMUEL 7:8,10,16).

Inheritance Passes to Daughter

It may be said that Zedekiah's daughter could not have been a link in the descendant to our ruling House, but God made it clear centuries before that, "If a man die, and have no son, then ye shall cause his inheritance to pass unto his daughter ..." as is done in Britain's Royal House (NUMBERS 27:8).
The path of the coronation stone since coming from Israel

Many cannot accept the thought that the Davidic line of royalty is in existence today. Having discarded God's promises to His cho­sen race because their poor faith will not let them understand that God's intentions are unbreakable, they have carried out a meta­morphosis and turned Israel into the Church.

The logical step which had to follow their low estimate of the power of God was that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Head of His Church and the Son of David, is the continuation of the Davidic line of kings. The fact that this leaves a gap of centuries between the last king, Zedekiah, and our Lord does not seem to deter them.

Bible believers, however, preferring Scripture as written, and preferring God's promises to the traditions of men, make no such errors in their conclusions. They take the promise to David at its face value, the Divine (and therefore completely honest) promise of the All-Powerful Eternal God, "I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant, Thy seed will I establish for ever and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah" (PSALM 89:3-4).

No Generations Are Missing

Family Tree from Abraham to JesusThe diagram shows: (1) the disinherited branch of Joseph-Jeconias; (2) the genealogy of Jesus as a low branch from the stump of David's family tree; (3) the highest branch Zedekiah to King George VI, and his descendants, reigning until Christ's second Advent.

How, then, could there be all those generations missing between Zedekiah and Jesus Christ? In any case, the progenitor of our Lord, contemporary with Zedekiah was a quite distant relation of that king, for the Virgin Mary descended from David through his son Nathan. The result of this sleight-of-hand trick with scriptures begins to be seen.

On investigation we find it written, "Then Solomon sat on the throne of the LORD as king instead of David his father ..." (1 CHRONICLES 29:23). There we have it - the throne of the Lord, which, according to the traditions of men, became unoccupied when Zedekiah was captured. It has even been said that some 600 years or so later it appeared in heaven on God's right hand! What a futile story! The Mighty Creator is brought down to the level of human inefficiency and is said to have skipped about fifteen generations in spite of His promise for all generations!

The Queen is Christ's Regent (Well, sort of...)

But how magnificent is God's unadulterated account of His intentions, how inexorable in achievement! In the appointed place the Israel race is set under the throne of Jehovah, with each successive occupant of the throne holding the position as regent "... until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him" (EZEKIEL 21:27), for we know that, "... the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end" (LUKE 1:32-33). Today, our Queen occupies this great throne.

Some believe that the promises the Lord made to Israel have thus transferred to England and possibly England's child, the United States of America.  However, the scriptures give no credence to such a shift, and the idea is Biblically untenable.

Are You Ready For 150 Days of Craziness?


Whether we believe the Mayan Long Count Calendar's accuracy or date (Dec. 12, 2012) is not really the point.  Untold millions already believe it is true.  And this will have wide ranging effects on a world that is at it's tipping point.  We are now 150 days and counting from the Mayan "end of the age", and more significantly, we can tie in many links to Biblical prophecies.  For example -

- One of the first major signs mentioned is the White Horseman, in Rev. 6:2.  The White Horseman is a "conqueror", one who topples leaders of nations.  If we look specifically at the Mediterranean Sea nations, almost every single country has had their leader ousted through scandal, election or overthrow by NATO forces (see M. Qaddafi, H. Mubarak) 

- The next sign is the Red Horseman of Rev. 6:4.  He has the power to take away peace and make war.  While we haven't seen open war between nations yet, we are in the middle of a cyber war involving the U.S. and China.  And Syria, one of the last Mediterranean nations not to fall, has become the lynchpin to World War 3.  Russia and China along with Iran have come down firmly on Syria's side, while NATO forces have joined with Israel in opposition.  With British and Russian troops (and probably U.S. special forces) already on the ground inside Syria, it would seem a major war is a matter of when, not if.

- Among other signs we see the stage set for widespread famine (the third horseman, Rev. 6:5-6, as major grain and rice producers in the U.S. and Australia lie under massive droughts, or are still trying to recover.  Other nations like China and India are having problems simply feeding their own, with major issues of failed GMO crops in India and flooding in China.  With many African nations still struggling under poor leadership and no organized agricultural plans, this situation will continually worsen.  Note also in the passage in Revelation that the famine is linked with the worthlessness of money.  The world wide financial crises scream for us to beware the third horseman.

- Other signs include the continued onslaught of old diseases (like Tuberculosis and plague) along with new ones (pick a bird or swine flu) and emerging threats like the chimera/nano disease Morgellons.  These signs are preparing the way for the fourth horseman, which includes pestilence.  (Rev. 6:8)

- Throw in miscellaneous events that are lingering, like the coming London Olympics where many have already spoken of terror threats linked to the belief that Iran or Israel will ignite a massive war during the games.  And how about an American election featuring two horrible candidates, the political identical twins Barack Obama and Mitt Romney.  Will we even have an election by the time November arrives?  Throw in extreme weather events and the occasional mass murder for political motives like the Aurora shooting, and we have all the makings of 150 days of crazy.  All of this chaos working perfectly for those "powers behind the scenes" desiring a world descending into chaos so that they can bring in their savior.  The time is getting close, so close.

We will revisit the topic in 50 days, God willing.  Remember always to watch and pray.  "Look up, and lift up your heads, for your redemption draws near."  (Luke 21:8)
