Sanhedrin Mints King David Coin to Usher in Davidic Dynasty
As the next stage in the Messianic process, the Sanhedrin of Israel released a new coin honoring King David in preparation for re-establishing the Davidic Dynasty. “Throughout history, governments issued coins to establish their sovereignty and to mark the passage of an era,” Persoff told Breaking Israel News. “We initially issued a coin honoring President Trump and his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital. That was undoubtedly a major step in the geula (redemption) process so we issued a Trump-Cyrus coin to mark the entrance of the new era. But that was just a preparation for the Temple, the Davidic Dynasty, and the Messiah. We are symbolizing that upcoming era by minting this coin.”
Erdogan Expecting Delivery of Russian S-400s in July
Turkey’s ambitions to purchase the S-400 system has constrained relations between NATO members. The US is concerned that the sale could provide Russia with access to sensitive technical data if it is operated adjacently to US fighter jets. The country could be facing crippling economic sanctions if it carries out the exchange. “We discussed the S-400 subject with Russia. Indeed the S-400 issue is settled,” Erdogan said to journalists upon returning from Tajikistan. There, he met with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. “I think they will start to come in the first half of July,” Erdogan explained.
Permanent Rainbow Coming to Central Reykjavík
A temporary rainbow has been painted – and removed – for several years as part of the annual Reykjavík Pride celebrations in August.

THE SUN IS UTTERLY BLANK
Today marks the 30th consecutive day that the sun has been without spots. Images of the sun look like a big orange billiard ball–utterly blank. This is a sign of Solar Minimum, a phase of the solar cycle that brings extra cosmic rays, long-lasting holes in the sun’s atmosphere, and a possible surplus of noctilucent clouds.
Earth Is Moving Toward The Same Meteor Swarm That Scientists Believe Caused The Tunguska Explosion Of 1908
Over the next several weeks, our planet will have a close encounter with the Taurid meteor swarm. It will be the closest that we have been to the center of the meteor swarm since 1975, and we won’t have an encounter this close again until 2032. So for astronomers, this is a really big deal. And hopefully there will be no danger to Earth during this pass, but some scientists are absolutely convinced that the Tunguska explosion of 1908 which flattened 80 million trees in Russia was caused by an object from the Taurid meteor swarm. As you will see below, the last week of June will mark the point when we are the closest to the center of the meteor swarm, and so that will be when the risk is the greatest.
I Agree with This Evil Socialist Dictator
Hugo Chavez was one of the most evil socialist dictators ever. Nicolas Maduro. Maduro ran the country the exact same way. Things got much worse. The people eat from garbage dumps and are forced to drink sewage water. In an oil rich country, there is no gas for cars. I agree with something an evil socialist dictator said. “New Yorkers have to eat garbage too.” Well for once I agree with this evil socialist dictator. America’s inner cities- run 100% by Democrats- are rotting cesspools of misery. They are third world hellholes. What Maduro missed was that the reason those cities resemble Venezuela is because the policies in place are socialist- just like Venezuela.

The trick now is for Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and the others to conduct their cleansing operations in ways that are transparent and sensible.
