Russia is in good company, with five peers in double-digit inflation territory. Argentina probably will have about 22.5 percent inflation this year, and Ukraine is headed for 17.5 percent price growth. Egypt and Ghana also sit in the two-digit club, with 10.6 percent and 13.2 percent estimates, respectively. All are dwarfed by Venezuela’s 72.3 percent projected price growth in 2015.

If You Listen Carefully, The Bankers Are Actually Telling Us What Is Going To Happen Next
Are we on the verge of a major worldwide economic downturn? Well, if recent warnings from prominent bankers all over the world are to be believed, that may be precisely what we are facing in the months ahead. As you will read about below, the big banks are warning that the price of oil could soon drop as low as 20 dollars a barrel, that a Greek exit from the eurozone could push the EUR/USD down to 0.90, and that the global economy could shrink by more than 2 trillion dollars in 2015. Most of the time, very few people ever actually read the things that the big banks write for their clients. But in recent months, a lot of these bankers are issuing such ominous warnings that you would think that they have started to write for The Economic Collapse Blog. Of course we have seen this happen before. Just before the financial crisis of 2008, a lot of people at the big banks started to get spooked, and now we are beginning to see an atmosphere of fear spread on Wall Street once again. Nobody is quite sure what is going to happen next, but an increasing number of experts are starting to agree that it won’t be good. (Read More….)
America’s Colleges Have Become Political Correctness Indoctrination Centers
Most parents assume that when they send their kids to college that they will receive training which will prepare them for a lifetime of employment. Sadly, the truth is that very little time is actually spent imparting practical skills to students at most of America’s colleges. Instead, an extraordinary amount of classroom time is spent telling students what they should think and what they should believe. At this point, most institutions of “higher learning” in this country have been transformed into political correctness indoctrination centers. There is a reason why college towns have a reputation for being extremely liberal. The truth is that they are bastions for “progressive” thought. Each and every day, millions of young adults all across America are literally being systematically brainwashed. In case you are wondering, I know what I am talking about. I spent eight years getting three degrees at public universities. And it doesn’t even really matter what area of the country you attend school. The “education” that students are receiving at schools in very liberal states is virtually the same as the “education” that students are receiving at schools in very conservative states. Our young adults represent the future of this nation, and they are receiving a level of indoctrination that is so comprehensive that it would make Joseph Goebbels proud. (Read More…)

“[P]osterity will be indebted for the possession, and the world for the example of the numerous innovations displayed on the American theatre, in favor of private rights and public happiness.” –James Madison, Federalist No. 14, 1787
TOP 5 RIGHT HOOKS
Not only does Barack Obama refuse to admit that ISIL and its ilk are driven by Islamic ideology, he can’t even say that the group has a hit list. After an Islamic militant captured shoppers in a Jewish market in Paris, killing four Jews, Obama basically likened it to a group of gangsters roughing up Katz Deli in New York City. In an interview with Vox, Obama said, “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris. … It is right and appropriate for us to be vigilant and aggressive in trying to deal with that — the same way a big city mayor’s got to cut the crime rate down if he wants that city to thrive.” But combatting Islamic extremism isn’t the same as keeping the peace as the Italian Mafia and Russian thugs battle over who gets to collect trash and distribute cocaine. Fox News analyst Charles Krauthammer asserted, “The reason [Obama] doesn’t have a strategy [to fight radical Islam] is because he thinks there is no need for a strategy because it is random violence.” Either Obama is deluding himself, or he brought political obfuscation to the next level.

Arctic sea ice was supposed to have melted by now. Polar bears extinct. Sea levels at devastating highs. Civilization on the cusp of socioeconomic disaster. Alarmists’ predictions never materialize, but doom is looming, they assure us. Interestingly, the diabolical Leftmedia never question the various narratives, but when it comes to evidence of scientific fraud they act like it’s simply part of the process necessary to narrow down the preconceived day of Climate Armageddon. The federal government is actively manipulating global temperature data to fit the narrative, which London Telegraph writer Christopher Booker reminds us “is the biggest science scandal ever.” In fact, he notes, “When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records — on which the entire panic ultimately rested — were systematically ‘adjusted’ to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data justified.” The science is “settled,” the Left lectures. So long as you ignore massive collusion and fraud.
As Mark Twain observed, there are lies, damned lies and statistics. Barack Obama dished out all of it in a PSA about sexual violence that ran during the Grammy Awards. He claimed, “Right now, nearly one in five women in America has been a victim of rape or attempted rape. And more than one in four women has experienced some form of domestic violence.” The lie works because it’s repeated — often. So for the viewers who just wanted to witness Sam Smith sweeping Grammy win after Grammy win, the statistic sounded true. Last summer, commentator George Will questioned the one-in-five statistic of rape on college campuses, arguing it was so inflated and didn’t make any logical sense that it was only good as government propaganda. Furthermore, Washington Examiner commentator Ashe Schow notes that Obama not only repeated a suspect statistic, but he stretched the truth even further. The statistic was traditionally used by progressives to talk about rape on college campuses. But then Obama went and applied it to all women in the United States. After all, he’s got a “war on women” to maintain. More…
In the wake of the House debacle over the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act, a group of 50 Republicans is working an another bill to establish life at conception. Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV) explains, “There are thousands of unborn babies who need us to fight tirelessly on the issue of human life. I cannot think of a more important role for a benevolent society than to offer protection for the right to life of the most vulnerable among us.” Republicans see an opening in none other than the reasoning behind the majority opinion in Roe v. Wade. Justice Harry Blackmon wrote, “If this suggestion of personhood is established, the appellant’s case [i.e., “Roe”], of course, collapses, for the fetus’ right to life is then guaranteed specifically by the [Fourteenth] Amendment.” It’s guaranteed Barack Obama will veto the bill, but it’s worth putting our representatives on the record regarding the clear science of when life begins. If Democrats claim to be the Party of Science™, this shouldn’t be a difficult question.
The Department of Homeland Security set up a hotline for people who believe their rights have been violated. Illegal aliens who believe so, that is. In the wake of Barack Obama’s amnesty, U.S. Customs and Border Protection advised illegals to “please tell us about your experience” if they feel they’ve been treated “contrary to the new DHS enforcement priorities.” Shawn Moran, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council, says it’s an insult: “Instead of supporting our agents, this administration has decided it is more important to find new ways to solicit complaints and invite ridicule against them.” Meanwhile, compare that “customer service” to the treatment of veterans. There are hundreds of thousands of veterans awaiting help from the Department of Veterans Affairs in a variety of ways, from home-loan assistance to disability benefits to health care. Veterans quickly became far too familiar with the incredible lack of responsiveness by the VA. It is a near impossibility to actually reach a human being at the VA by telephone, and, if you ever do, good luck getting anything useful out of them. To see such shameful treatment of our veterans while Obama’s administration is placing funds into a program designed to assist people here illegally is beyond appalling. More…
Don’t Miss Patriot Humor
Check out Commiseration.
For the first time since 2010, Barack Obama has released an updated National Security Strategy (NSS), an overview of threats to U.S. national security and establish a strategy for mitigating those threats. Not surprisingly, Obama’s NSS fails to identify several real threats or set a good course for maintaining security.
Anyone who has been remotely paying attention to world events knows there are several legitimate national security threats. One is the rise of the Islamic State, which continues to slaughter innocents and create major instability in the Middle East.
While the NSS identifies the Islamic State as a threat, Obama still fails to identify Islamic extremism and Islamic terrorism as a threat to the United States and the rest of the free world. Instead, the word “Islamic” is replaced by the word “violent.” Nowhere in the document can it be seen that violent extremism is perpetrated at the hands of Islamists.
Nile Gardiner of The Heritage Foundation notes, “The document steadfastly refuses to identify the ideological nature of the foe the United States is confronting, a brutal and vicious adversary that has made huge gains in Iraq and Syria under Obama’s watch. … Nor does the document outline a concrete strategy for defeating Islamist terrorism, from Iraq to Nigeria and Pakistan to Yemen.”
Releasing this NSS without acknowledging radical Islam as a threat isn’t naïve — it’s absurd. Why can’t Obama for once call our enemies what they are? We have heard him call ISIL “the JV team,” hail Islam as the “Religion of Peace™,” and insists that the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris were just random shootings. Moreover, he still insists pulling our troops out of Iraq was the right thing to do even though it left a vacuum for the Islamic State to fill, and therefore negated almost everything for which our troops bled and died.
And now that we’ve left, Obama will reportedly seek an authorization for the use of military force against ISIL.
Meanwhile, a second threat is Iran — that is, a nuclear-armed Iran. The NSS mentions the ongoing negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program and the administration’s goal of reaching a nuclear accord. Why is Obama so adamant about helping Iran acquire nuclear capabilities even though the nation’s leadership vowed to destroy Israel and the United States?
While the commander in chief appeases Iran, Houthi rebels, a terrorist militia in Yemen reportedly backed by Iran, have essentially taken over the Yemeni government. Soft diplomacy doesn’t work when dealing with radical Islamists.
Furthermore, Thomas Donnelly of The Weekly Standard writes, “[T]he most revealing section is that which asserts the administration’s determination to ‘lead with a long-term perspective.'” If leading by long-term perspective means waiting until the next president takes office to battle our real enemies, then Obama is well on his way because the new strategy doesn’t clearly define who our enemy is.
So far, Obama’s diplomatic efforts have failed. All the while, he has downsized the military in the face of growing threats. Our military remains technologically superior, albeit with a smaller force.
To make matters worse, veteran journalist Bob Woodward claims several of our top commanders complain “there is no strategy” and that they are being “micromanaged” by people in the White House — including National Security Advisor Susan Rice. Yep, the same Susan Rice involved in the Benghazi talking points fiasco. If this is the case, then it’s no wonder our top commanders are unclear on Obama’s strategy.
Overall, the new NSS dismisses radical Islam as a threat and aims to tolerate a nuclear powered Iran. Instead of following Ronald Reagan’s proven strategy of peace through strength, Obama has decided that our nation will follow his strategy of peace through weakness. So far, it hasn’t worked. But it seems he will continue on this path until we elect a president who knows that our greatest national security threat isn’t the changing climate.
It looks as if Hillary Clinton is going to wait until summer to formally announce her inevitable presidential campaign. Her team originally looked at April as a jumping off point, but is now waiting until July. Team Hillary will use this time to work on assembling staff (and keeping them from resigning) and developing her platform. Because she hasn’t had enough time to finish that homework.
Unlike the Republican presidential field, which is well populated and already out on the trail, Clinton is facing little opposition among Democrats. She can afford to take her time in making her announcement. The only serious name that keeps coming up as a challenger is Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA). (We know, we left Joe Biden off the “serious name” list.) Despite a growing attempt to draft Warren, she has remained relatively silent on the matter.
The danger Clinton faces with a dearth of challengers is that her nomination will look more like a coronation. That’s what she and her supporters expected in 2008, but we all know how that turned out.
Iowa Democrat activist Anne Kinzel says, “The hacks think Hillary is entitled to be president. I think she is one of those people who has lost the sense of why they are in politics.” That sentiment seems to be spreading.
Former Obama adviser David Axelrod told USA Today that Clinton has to project a fresh message about where she wants to take the country: “I think she has to approach the campaign like a challenger, not like a front-runner — like an insurgent.” Odd advice for a woman who has been plotting a White House run since at least 2000, and perhaps 1993 if you consider that whole “co-presidency” thing her and Bill had going on.
Clinton’s operation, whenever it kicks in, will not leave anything to chance. Fundraising, public appearances and media relations will all be well orchestrated. It’s Clinton’s truckloads of political baggage that will be the problem.
One interesting tidbit that recently surfaced thanks to Axelrod’s upcoming memoir was Clinton’s plan to get John Edwards out of the 2008 race by offering him the attorney general slot in exchange for his endorsement. This was before Edwards’ career went up in smoke thanks to his own scumbag behavior. He cheated on his wife while she was dying of cancer, fathered an illegitimate child and lied about it, and then used campaign funds to support his mistress and cover it all up. Yeah, he would’ve made a great AG.
We can’t be sure how Clinton would have handled the Edwards debacle when it did blow up, and it would have sooner or later. There’s little doubt the Leftmedia will circle the wagons rather than ask Clinton about her 2008 plans for Edwards. After all, it doesn’t exactly burnish her credentials as a champion of women’s causes — especially after she stood by her man, Bill, for little other reason than vain ambition. But at this point, what difference does it make, right?

OPINION IN BRIEF
Plato (429-347 BC): “Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught in falsehood’s school. And the one man who dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool.”
Columnist Arnold Ahlert: “Right now there is more than $1 trillion dollars of outstanding student debt, with each student from the class of 2013 amassing an average of $28,400. The current default rate has fallen to 13.7 percent from 14.7 percent the previous year, but the Obama administration was still forced to raise its estimated cost for student loans by $22 billion. Why? Because the Obama administration is rigging the payback system. ‘The government is on pace to forgive billions of dollars more in student loans than previously thought as droves of borrowers enroll in federal repayment plans,’ the Wall Street Journal reports. The additional $22 billion is needed ‘due to plans that peg monthly student-loan payments to borrowers’ income and permit balances to be forgiven in as little as 10 years.’ That’s not a repayment plan. It’s nothing more than welfare, ultimately backed up by the taxpayer. Why the taxpayer? Because universities themselves have no skin in the game. They get paid in full, no matter how many students default on their loans. And that’s because the Obama administration nationalized the student loan program in 2010 — as part of ObamaCare, no less. So what do universities who have no worries about the bottom line do? Pay professors more. Hire legions of worthless ‘diversity’ specialists that now inhabit the bureaucracies of campuses across the nation. Build more expensive and fancier campus facilities designed to attract more students — all of which contribute to tuition costs that are completely out of control.”
Columnist Burt Prelutsky: “[I]f those who follow Islam are as peace-loving as those who are Christians, why is it that so many senseless murders are accompanied by shouts of ‘Allah Akbar!’ and so rarely by anyone referencing Jesus Christ? Furthermore, if those shouting ‘Allah Akbar’ as they mow down, behead and crucify infidels aren’t — as Obama and other liberals insist — true Muslims, how is it the pinheads are always so quick to label those who kill abortionists true Christians? And if we’re all the same under our skins, how it is that only the Islamics regard rape and the aforementioned crucifixions and beheadings, as a natural instrument of warfare? For that matter, how is it that some of us regard dogs as members of our family while others, who are allegedly our civilized equals, regard them as merely an optional source of protein? No matter what the adolescent ‘Kumbaya’ crowd says, there are savages who would be right at home in the eighth century all around the planet. They are as different in every way that matters from us as we are from a field of cow pies. And I, for one, say: ‘Viva la difference!'”

On September 23, 2014, an Italian court in Milan award compensation to a boy for vaccine-induced autism. (See the Italian document here.) A childhood vaccine against six childhood diseases caused the boy’s permanent autism and brain damage. While the Italian press has devoted considerable attention to this decision and its public health implications, the U.S. press has been silent.
Like the U.S., Italy has a national vaccine injury compensation program to give some financial support to those people who are injured by compulsory and recommended vaccinations. The Italian infant plaintiff received three doses of GlaxoSmithKline’s Infanrix Hexa, a hexavalent vaccine administered in the first year of life. These doses occurred from March to October 2006. The vaccine is to protect children from polio, diphtheria, tetanus, hepatitis B, pertussis and Haemophilus influenza type B. In addition to these antigens, however, the vaccine then contained thimerosal, the mercury-containing preservative, aluminum, an adjuvant, as well as other toxic ingredients. The child regressed into autism shortly after receiving the three doses. When the parents presented their claim for compensation first to the Ministry of Health, as they were required to do, the Ministry rejected it. Therefore, the family sued the Ministry in a court of general jurisdiction, an option which does not exist in the same form in the U.S.
Based on expert medical testimony, the court concluded that the child more likely than not suffered autism and brain damage because of the neurotoxic mercury, aluminum and his particular susceptibility from a genetic mutation. The Court also noted that Infanrix Hexa contained thimerosal, now banned in Italy because of its neurotoxicity, “in concentrations greatly exceeding the maximum recommended levels for infants weighing only a few kilograms.”
Presiding Judge Nicola Di Leo considered another piece of damning evidence: a 1271-page confidential GlaxoSmithKline report (now available on the Internet). This industry document provided ample evidence of adverse events from the vaccine, including five known cases of autism resulting from the vaccine’s administration during its clinical trials (see table at page 626, excerpt below).

|America Hell-Bent on War: 80-Year-Old Analyst Has Never Been More AfraidPosted: 10 Feb 2015 07:53 AM PST
“I’m 80 years old. I was never scared throughout the Cold War years. I’m very scared now.” That is what Stephen Lendman, a Research Associate for the Centre for Research on Globalization told Sputnik in an exclusive interview regarding recent developments related to the military conflict in Ukraine. As the Normandy Four are set to meet in Minsk on Wednesday to discuss possible ways out of the deteriorating military conflict in eastern Ukraine, Stephen Lendman forecasts that the US won’t drop its idea of waging a full-size war in the region. Washington under the Democrats or Republicans wants war, not peace, he said. “In the post-9/11 era alone, not a single day of peace has followed. Multiple US direct and proxy wars rage. US Special Forces (trained killers) operate covertly and overtly in over 130 countries disruptively.”
He says that “Merkel and Hollande (Germany and France) are bedrock US-dominated NATO members.” “Ignore what they say publicly; follow what they do,” he advised. “Throughout the Ukrainian crisis, they haven’t gone their own way against Washington…nor has Britain’s David Cameron.” “I’m sure Merkel and Hollande tried to get Putin to largely bend to Washington’s will; in other words, [they] do nothing to stop its chokehold on Ukraine, including NATO forces encroaching on Russia’s borders.” America maintains an empire of bases in over 150 countries, he added, noting that Russia and China are increasingly surrounded by US bases, which he called “so-called defensive missiles for an offense target: their heartlands.” Washington wants all sovereign independent governments eliminated, Lendman stated. “Replaced by pro-Western stooge ones. America’s ultimate aim is unchallenged global dominance; it’s willing to wage wars to achieve its objectives.”The political analyst said that wars are hugely profitable. “The US-banker led war lobby demands them. Peace is anathema. Putin is right: Russia has been targeted for centuries, more than ever now since Hitler’s Barbarossa campaign.”
Regarding the role the US left for Russia, Lendman forecast the following. Washington wants to plunder Russia’s resources,” he said. “Exploit its people. Balkanize the country like Yugoslavia for easier control.” “America ousted Ukraine’s legitimate government,” in “the most brazen European coup since Mussolini’s 1922 march on Rome. Neo-Nazi thugs run things”, Lendman said of the 2014 Maidan events, calling the post-Maidan government there mob rule. “War policy is made in Washington.” “CIA, FBI and US Special Forces infest Kiev: Top US officials like Joe Biden, John Kerry, Victoria Nuland and John Brennan show up to deliver marching orders.” “Kiev is a hotbed of fascist, militant gangsterism, murdering its own citizens in Donbas [for] wanting only democratic rights free from Kiev-style tyranny.” More

|Invasion Imminent: Jordan Stations “Thousands” Of Troops On Iraq BorderPosted: 10 Feb 2015 06:59 AM PST
BREAKING NEWS – Jordan announced it has deployed “thousands” of ground troops to its border with Iraq as it ramps up a campaign against ISIS militants, two Jordanian government officials told NBC News on Tuesday. As NBC reports, the troops were sent to prevent the infiltration of ISIS fighters into Jordan and as a show of force, according to the sources who spoke on condition of anonymity. In other words, what would formerly have been seen as an overt act of territorial incursion, or as it is also known, a sovereign invasion, is now interpreted as a defensive act, one seeking to “prevent” infiltration by the same ISIS, that only exists due to US intervention in Syria in 2013.
Jordan’s King Abdullah last week threatened to make ISIS pay for the death of Muath al-Kasasbeh’s after video of the military pilot’s murder emerged. He vowed to wage a “harsh” war against ISIS “because this terrorist organization is not only fighting us, but also fighting Islam and its pure values.” Abdullah also pledged to hit ISIS militants “hard in the very center of their strongholds.” One wonders why the need for the land grab, pardon, defensive incursion, when as previously reported, Jordan has already unleashed up to 20 missions per day by Jordanian jets targeting the militant group’s positions in Syria. “We are determined to wipe them from the face of the Earth,” Maj. Gen. Mansour al-Jobour told NBC News on Sunday, citing the need for “revenge” after al-Kasabeh’s killing. That much is clear. The question is what else is Jordan “determined” to do once it has military boots on the ground first in Iraq and soon, inevitably, in Syria which as a reminder, is what this is all about. More

|Jewish and Gentile Apostolic Ministries Unite in the One New Man
Posted: 10 Feb 2015 06:42 AM PST
Recently in the city of Nazareth, Israel, where Yeshua/Jesus started His ministry, two of the more prominent apostolic ministries in the body of Messiah/Christ met to sign a significant document on the reconnection between Jew and Gentile in the Spirit. As the last days approach us, it is evident that if there were more healing between the two groups—especially from within the church—that there would be greater understanding and more tolerance of the roles between Jew and Gentile in the body. The meeting between Che Ahn from Harvest International Ministries and Dan Juster and Eitan Shiskoff from Tikkun International Ministries took a huge step in that direction and helps to recognize many of the issues from our past and present that keep the two groups divided—to help foster greater love and unity in the family of God.
HIM Ministries is one of the largest-growing church groups in the world with associations with over 30,000 churches and ministries. HIM has a significant focus on releasing church ministry back into the five-fold and is experiencing tremendous growth in this area. Tikkun International Ministries with its apostolic leadership fully established in the land of Israel is associated to numerous Messianic Congregations in the United States, as well as in many other parts of the world and is seeking to broaden its messianic appeal by working with the local churches throughout the Nations.
The meeting was put together by author Grant Berry of Reconnecting Ministries. He recently introduced his latest book on the reconnection (The Ezekiel Generation published by Destiny Image), and also writes for Charisma News’ Standing With Israel section. Berry is associated to both apostolic groups and recently felt a directive from the Holy Spirit to help bring them together to more fully recognize the great significance of this spiritual reconnection between Jew and Gentile in the body. One of the great challenges of the one new man teaching that Yeshua/Jesus brought about through the cross and resurrection (Eph. 2:14-22) is that there are numerous interpretations of it in the church and messianic bodies, and many in the family of God hold rigidly to their differing theologies.

|Astonishing 1968 Prophecy by 90-Year-Old Woman
Posted: 10 Feb 2015 06:35 AM PST
An old woman of 90 from Valdres in Norway had a vision from God in 1968. The evangelist Emanuel Minos had meetings (services) where she lived. He had the opportunity to meet her, and she told him what she had seen. He wrote it down, but thought it to be so unintelligible that he put it in a drawer. Now, almost 30 years later, he understands he has to share the vision with others.
The woman from Valdres was a very alert, reliable, awake and credible Christian, with a good reputation among all who knew her. This is what she saw:
“I saw the time just before the coming of Jesus and the outbreak of the Third World War. I saw the events with my natural eyes. I saw the world like a kind of a globe and saw Europe, land by land. I saw Scandinavia. I saw Norway. I saw certain things that would take place just before the return of Jesus, and just before the last calamity happens, a calamity the likes of which we have never before experienced.
She mentioned four waves:
1. “First before Jesus comes and before the Third World War breaks out, there will be a ‘détente’ like we have never had before. There will be peace between the super powers in the east and the west, and there will be a long peace. (Remember, that this was in 1968 when the cold war was at its highest. —E. Minos) In this period of peace there will be disarmament in many countries, also in Norway and we are not prepared when it (the war) comes. The Third World War will begin in a way no one would have anticipated—and from an unexpected place.
2. “A lukewarmness without parallel will take hold of the Christians, a falling away from true, living Christianity. Christians will not be open for penetrating preaching. They will not, like in earlier times, want to hear of sin and grace, law and gospel, repentance and restoration. There will come a substitute instead: prosperity (happiness) Christianity.
“The important thing will be to have success, to be something; to have material things, things that God never promised us in this way. Churches and prayer houses will be emptier and emptier. Instead of the preaching we have been used to for generations—like, to take your cross up and follow Jesus—entertainment, art and culture will invade the churches where there should have been gatherings for repentance and revival. This will increase markedly just before the return of Jesus.
3. “There will be a moral disintegration that old Norway has never experienced the likes of. People will live together like married without being married. (I do not believe the concept ‘co-habitor’? existed in 1968. —E. Minos.) Much uncleanness before marriage, and much infidelity in marriage will become the natural (the common), and it will be justified from every angle. It will even enter Christian circles and we pet it—even sin against nature. Just before Jesus’ return there will be TV programs like we have never experienced. (TV had just arrived in Norway in 1968. —E. Minos)
“TV will be filled with such horrible violence that it teaches people to murder and destroy each other, and it will be unsafe in our streets. People will copy what they see. There will not be only one ‘station’ on TV, it will be filled with ‘stations.’ (She did not know the word ‘channel’ which we use today. Therefore she called them stations. —E. Minos.) TV will be just like the radio where we have many ‘stations,’ and it will be filled with violence. People will use it for entertainment. We will see terrible scenes of murder and destruction one of the other, and this will spread in society. Sex scenes will also be shown on the screen, the most intimate things that takes place in a marriage.” (I protested and said, “We have a paragraph that forbids this kind of thing.” —E. Minos.) It will happen, and you will see it. All we have had before will be broken down, and the most indecent things will pass before our eyes.
4. “People from poor countries will stream to Europe. (In 1968 there was no such thing as immigration. —E. Minos.) They will also come to Scandinavia and Norway. There will be so many of them that people will begin to dislike them and become hard with them. They will be treated like the Jews before the Second World War. Then the full measure of our sins will have been reached (I protested at the issue of immigration. I did not understand it at the time. —E. Minos.)
The tears streamed from the old woman’s eyes down her cheeks. “I will not see it, but you will. Then suddenly, Jesus will come and the Third World War breaks out. It will be a short war.” (She saw it in the vision.)
“All that I have seen of war before is only child’s play compared to this one, and it will be ended with a nuclear atom bomb. The air will be so polluted that one cannot draw one’s breath. It will cover several continents, America, Japan, Australia and the wealthy nations. The water will be ruined (contaminated?). We can no longer till the soil. The result will be that only a remnant will remain. The remnant in the wealthy countries will try to flee to the poor countries, but they will be as hard on us as we were on them. More
|What Caused this Mysterious Ring in Antarctica?Posted: 10 Feb 2015 06:29 AM PST
Ever since its discovery was announced earlier this year, the 3 km-wide ring structure discovered on the of Antarctica has been a source of significant interest and speculation. Initially, the discovery was seen as little more than a happy accident that occurred during a survey of East Antarctica by a WEGAS (West-East Gondwana Amalgamation and its Separation) team from the Alfred Wegener Institute.
However, after the team was interviewed by the Brussels-based International Polar Foundation, news of the find and its possible implication spread like wildfire. Initial theories for the possible origin of the ring indicated that it could be the result of the impact of a large meteor. However, since the news broke, team leader Olaf Eisen has offered an alternative explanation: that the ring structure is in fact the result of other ice-shelf processes.
As Eisen indicated in a new entry on the AWI Ice Blog: “Doug MacAyeal, glaciologist from the University of Chicago, put forward the suggestion that the ring structure could be an ice doline.” Ice dolines are round sinkholes that are caused by a pool of melt water formed within the shelf ice. They are formed by the caving in of ice sheets or glaciers, much in the same way that sinkholes form over caves.
“If the melt water drains suddenly,” he wrote, “like it often does, the surface of the glacier is destabilised and does collapse, forming a round crater. Ice depressions like this have been observed in Greenland and on ice shelves of the Antarctic Peninsula since the 1930s.”
However, in glaciers, these cavities form much more rapidly, as the meltwater created by temperature variations causes englacial lakes or water pockets to from which then drains through the ice sheet. Such dolines have been observed for decades, particularly in Greenland and the Antarctic Peninsula where the ice melts during the summertime.
Initial analysis of satellite images appear to confirm this, as they indicate that the feature could have been present before the supposed impact took place around 25 years ago. In addition, relying on data from Google Maps and Google Earth, the WEGAS (West-East Gondwana Amalgamation and its Separation) team observed that the 3 km ring is accompanied by other, smaller rings.

Despite President Obama’s claim on Monday that he has not yet made a decision about supplying defensive weapons to the Ukrainian army, which is battling Russia-backed separatists who want an independent region within that country, the Russian media is full of predictions. They’re warning of the terrible impact further U.S. involvement in the conflict might have. Quoting a member of the Russian Defense Ministry’s public advisory board who requested anonymity, The Moscow Times reported Monday that if the U.S. supplied arms to Ukraine, it would be viewed as an act of war. That action would not only increase the tension in the region, it would also force the Kremlin to “respond asymmetrically against Washington or its allies on other fronts,” the publication reported. Evgeny Buzhinsky, a former lieutenant general in the Russian Army who is now at the Moscow-based PIR Center, told the publication, “Russia would reasonably consider the U.S. to be a direct participant in the conflict.” Also on Monday, the government-owned news agency ITAR-TASS reported that Vitaly Churkin, Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, said, “We see major pressure on the issue in the United States, especially in Congress.” “If the U.S., following a request from the Ukrainian government, starts supplying weapons to Kiev, it will violate a number of international documents,” Churkin said. “The U.S. has repeatedly chosen a graded approach to rules of international law.” The government news agency also quoted Ruslan Bortnik, director of the Ukrainian Institute of Policy Analysis and Management, as calling the U.S. position a bluff. “It is just a kind of poker bidding up, it is a bluff, an attempt to press Putin to be more tractable,” Bortnik reportedly said. Will the U.S. supply arms to Ukraine? “Of course not,” Bortnik told TASS. “It might trigger an arms race bound to end up in Ukraine’s complete military defeat.” Bortnik and his organization, it should be noted, are difficult to find in news archives, except in stories published by Russia’s government-friendly media. The Obama administration’s position on arming Ukraine is actually still far from clear. While Obama held open the possibility during Monday’s joint press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who arrived in Washington, D.C. Sunday evening, he was also dismissive of the Ukrainian army’s ability to effectively counter a “determined” Russian advance. U.S. aid, Obama suggested, would be aimed at raising the costs to Russia of further aggression, not actually preventing it entirely. More

|Does Iran signal ‘End Time Prophecies? Christian apologist thinks soPosted: 10 Feb 2015 06:15 AM PST
While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu may not have been able to convince US President Barack Obama that Iran poses an existential threat to Israel, he does have at least one person who shares his viewpoint. Christian apologist Don Stewart believes that the New Testament suggests that Iran, together with Russia, poses a major threat not only to Israel, but to the United States as well. The Christian Post quoted Stewart as saying that Ezekiel 38 contains a prophecy in which Persia (modern day Iran), and Rosh, apparently Russia, have a military alliance in “the last days.” Stewart argued that Iran, as Shi’ites, believe that they “are divinely ordained” to have nuclear weapons. Netanyahu may not believe in “the Rapture” or the prophecies in the New Testament, but in Stewart, he has found a partner in his fears of Iran. Stewart for his part, however, thinks that it is prophecy being fulfilled rather than something that can be stopped by further sanctions or the threat of military action. “It’s like we are seeing foreshocks of a powerful earthquake that is ready to happen. The prophetic events are like dominoes closely stacked together. When the first domino falls, the others will fall in short order.” The Jerusalem Post

|Mark Levin: Obama ‘Is Building the Iranian Islamo-nazi Caliphate’
Posted: 10 Feb 2015 06:07 AM PST
While innocent people are being slaughtered in the Middle East and Africa by Islamist radicals, not unlike when the Jews were being rounded up and killed by the Nazis, President Barack Obama is “barely” responding and is instead negotiating with Iran and “building the Iranian Islamo-nazi caliphate,” said best-selling author and nationally syndicated conservative talk radio host Mark Levin.
Levin further said that the pressure is on to “destroy” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu because he was invited to speak before Congress by Republican leader John Boehner and, in his remarks, “might offend the Islamo-nazi regime in Tehran” and “offend Obama.”
“The way Marx put it is you have to destroy the existing society,” said Levin on his radio program on Feb. 5. “So, Obama looks at the Middle East and he says, look, just because Republican and Democrat presidents in the past, Republican and Democrat Congresses in the past have conducted themselves pretty much the same way doesn’t mean I’m going to.” “You know what Obama’s doing today?” said Levin. “He is building the Iranian Islamo-nazi caliphate. And I’ve been talking about this forever.”
A caliphate is an Islamic government that, in general, rules over large swaths of territory. The Islamic State, for instance, wants to impose a caliphate throughout the Middle East and destroy the state of Israel. Ultimately, their goal and that of millions of Muslims, is to establish a global caliphate: Islamic governments across Europe, Africa, the Far East and even the United States and Canada.
“It’s not just ISIS, although that would be bad enough,” said Levin. “We have competing crusades going on. And I don’t care about the Christian Crusade! Were not going to debate that today. What the heck does that have to do with anything? So now we’re supposed to chase history, and explain why there was a Christian Crusade? I’ve explained this before. The Christians rose up after hundreds of years of having enough of the Muslims.”
“Meanwhile, while Obama takes us into academic land, and wrongly so, people are being slaughtered,” Levin continued. “It would be as if FDR gave a speech to the nation, becoming aware of the rounding up of Jews, the beginning of the driving them into the concentration camps, slaughtering them in ovens and gas chambers and he wants to have a chat — about what? — German history. Jewish history.” More

Gallup CEO: I May ‘Suddenly Disappear’ for Telling Truth About Obama Unemployment Rate
Just about a week ago, the CEO of the Gallup polling firm, boldly stated that the White House was lying about the “real” unemployment rate.
He made his claim quite clear after displaying a chart which showed that the numbers are not reflecting people who have given up looking for work. He claimed that there were other factors that were skewing the WH official unemployment rate as well.
But on Sunday, the head of the well known polling firm backpedaled on his claim.
“Jim Clifton, the Chairman and CEO of Gallup, recently told CNBC that he was worried he might “suddenly disappear” if he disputed the accuracy of what the U.S. government is reporting as unemployed Americans, Wall Street on Parade reported.”
“I think that the number that comes out of BLS [Bureau of Labor Statistics] and the Department of Labor is very, very accurate. I need to make that very, very clear so that I don’t suddenly disappear. I need to make it home tonight.”
His appearance on CNBC came days after he claimed the official unemployment rate being trumpeted by the White House, Wall Street and the media is a “big lie.”
“None of them will tell you this: If you, a family member or anyone is unemployed and has subsequently given up on finding a job — if you are so hopelessly out of work that you’ve stopped looking over the past four weeks — the Department of Labor doesn’t count you as unemployed,” the venerable firm’s chief executive officer and chairman last week wrote in his blog.
“Right now, as many as 30 million Americans are either out of work or severely underemployed. Trust me, the vast majority of them aren’t throwing parties to toast ‘falling’ unemployment.”

The McAvany Intel Memo
[Continuing last week’s discussion of the US’s tendency to betray its allies over time.]
For decades (1953-1980), Yugoslavia was run by a strongman/dictator – Marshal Tito. There were always warring factions in the Balkans (think Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Herzegovina, Slovenia, etc.) but Tito kept the disparate factions apart and when necessary cracked some heads or shot a few thousand troublemakers to maintain the peace and stability – which he did from 1953 until his death in 1980. But when Tito died, the stability he had maintained through brute force disappeared overnight, the seven states of Bosnia, Serbia, Croatia, Macedonia, Herzegovina, Slovenia, etc. broke out in wars, and the next two decades saw non-stop violence, conflict, and upheaval. Tito had kept a lid on all of that, and when he departed, all hell broke loose.
Fast-forward to 2003 in Iraq: Fundamentalist Shiites ruled in Iran (from the 1979 US betrayal of the Shah forward). They had launched an eight-year war (1980-1988) against Iraq, which was headed by Saddam Hussein, an ally of the US who was armed by America. That war (after the loss of over a million lives on both sides) ended up in a stalemate. But, it was well established that Saddam Hussein and Iraq were the buffer that could stop the spread of radical Shiite fundamentalism out of Iran and across the entire Middle East.
Saddam Hussein was a secular Sunni Muslim (a strongman/dictator much like Marshal Tito in Yugoslavia) who ruled over disparate factions in Iraq. Iraq was/is made up of three major factions divided along religious lines: Shiites – 60% of the population – mostly in Southern Iraq; Sunnis – 20% of the population – mostly in Central Iraq; and Kurds – 20% of the population – mostly in Northern Iraq (also known as Kurdistan). These factions were always at odds with each other, but Iraq’s strongman (Saddam Hussein) kept them apart from each other – using brutal strong arm tactics as Tito had done in Yugoslavia to keep those factions from blowing up the country and going to war with each other – as is happening now.
Though Saddam was from the minority Sunnis (i.e., a minority in Iraq but a majority throughout the Middle East and globally) the Sunnis were the efficient technocrats, administrators, and military leaders. The Shiites were the less educated, more fundamentalist Muslims and more sympathetic to their Shiite co-religionists in Iran. The Kurds (to the north) are more moderate, more pro-western, and have long desired an independent Kurdistan (i.e., their own country). Not only did Saddam keep the opposing factions apart – thereby insuring stability, but Iraq under Saddam was a secular Muslim state (as opposed to a Fundamentalist Muslim state operated under Sharia law – such as Iran and as Obama is trying to establish now in Egypt, Syria, and Libya).
There was always a minority of radical fundamentalists in both the Sunni and Shiite groups, but they were kept well under control in Saddam’s secular Iraq. In fact, under Saddam Hussein, there was more freedom of religion than almost anywhere in the Muslim Middle East. Indeed,under Saddam Hussein, Christians were allowed to hold Easter services on national television and Christian churches flourished in Iraq – free to worship God openly as they saw fit without government interference. Today, in Shiite-controlled Iraq, Christian churches can no longer function openly, and Christians are being martyred for their faith by the hundreds. (This is also happening in Syria, where the fundamentalist insurgents Obama is supporting are butchering Christians by the thousands.) [This was written before the current ISIS offensive caused some changes in US Policy, but obviously and accurately describes the anti-Christian actions of the fanatic Muslim rebels in Syria.]

Gallup CEO On The Big Lie on Unemployment | Worldview Weekend
Jim Clifton, the Chairman and CEO of Gallup, says that the percentage of Americans that are employed full-time has been hovering near record lows since the end of the last recession. But most Americans don’t realize this because the official unemployment numbers are extremely misleading. In fact, Clifton says that the official 5.6 percent unemployment rate is a “big lie”. Gallup regularly tracks the percentage of U.S. adults that are employed for 30 or more hours per week, and it is currently at 44.2 percent. It has been hovering between 42 percent and 45 percent since the end of 2009. This is extremely low. As I discussed the other day, there are 8.69 million Americans that are considered to be “officially unemployed” at this point. But there are another 92.90 million Americans that are considered to be “not in the labor force”. Millions upon millions of those Americans would work if they could. Overall, there are 101 million U.S. adults that do not have a job right now. But you won’t hear that number being discussed by the mainstream media, because it would make Barack Obama look really bad.
Critical Information on Iranian Threats Presented in Washington | Worldview Weekend
Considerable media coverage has been devoted to House Speaker John Boehner’s invitation for Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to speak before Congress regarding Iran’s nuclear program and the state of radical Islam movement worldwide. But “Boehner didn’t invite Netanyahu because he cares about Israel’s election,” writes Caroline Glick for the Jerusalem Post. “He invited Netanyahu because he cares about U.S. national security. He believes that by having Netanyahu speak on the issues of Iran’s nuclear program and radical Islam, he will advance America’s national security.”

Children Of The Light
Q. My question is regarding 1 Thessalonians 5:4 which reads, “But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.” I’ve looked at several other translations and it almost seems to imply that Christians won’t be surprised when the Day of the Lord comes. Why would it surprise us if we’re not even going to be here for it?
