And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
27 They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
”A mass exodus is taking place, on a Biblical scale. In some places, there is a real danger that Christianity will become extinct,” she will say at a speech at Georgetown University in Washington.
”Islamic” Terrorists are subjecting Christians in the Middle East to “collective punishment” for American foreign policy. Worshippers are now regarded as newcomers and agents of the West, despite having lived there for centuries.
More than any other reason, these innumerable talks have been nothing but a game of ring around the rosy and Jew hatred, codified within the Qur’an and Hadith, the foundational scriptures of Islam. To the faithful, the mere existence of a sovereign Jewish state in their midst is a violation of dar-al-Islam (all those lands in which a Muslim sets foot in becomes the possession of Islam. Non-Muslims may live there but only upon Muslim sufferance). This is the substantive point of departure of Arab bellicosity long before 1948 and to this very day is the one underlying issue which renders all others moot.
From the past to the present, from Mohammad, to the Caliphate dynasties, onward to today’s terrorists wreaking havoc upon the world. Expansive Islam is driven by the venerated Qur’an, one-third of which is devoted to the denigration of Jews. The quotes in the Hadith (the putative sayings of Muhammad or a report about something he did) are no less replete with Jewish invective. These laws divide the world theologically into those who who accept Islam as a divine religion and those that do not.
The New York Times reported that American investigators uncovered data surrounding the Zurmat Material Testing Laboratory, affiliated with the Zurmat Group, an Afghan company that “investigators say was paid to do work at an American-controlled facility in November 2012, despite having been blacklisted two months before by one part of the military for providing bomb-making materials to insurgents.”
U.S. West quake pattern looking strange…
It seems the 99% are not cooperating with the 1% plan for economic recovery. Maybe they are little depressed because their health insurance policy just got cancelled and their new Obama policy is going to cost 40% more. Maybe it is the $1,000 less the average household has to spend this year versus last year because the 2% Social Security tax reduction expired. Maybe it is because they lost their $80,000 per year job at Merck and are now working at the Dunkin Donuts across the street for $9.00 per hour – but they get free donuts at the end of the shift. Maybe it’s the fact that the real median household income is 10% below the level of 1999.
You see, reality is a bitch. Your owners can prop up the stock market and spew propaganda on the corporate media outlets, but they can’t create wealth for you. The average American is spending less because they have less. It really is that simple.
The Message of the Four Comets…!?!? I can’t be the only one seeing this…?? What are the ODDs? Four bright comets at the same time, and passing certain MEANINGFUL objects in the ORDER of the message?! Perhaps I’m over reacting/reaching…just thought I should share this…
An appearance of so many (four) comets at once is a rare thing: Four is the number of the created world, of matter itself. So this IS a timely harbinger! And possibly an exciting message for us…
The meanings per research are in ( )…
Dates all center around the 18th. Nov. 15-18 when Comet LINEAR X1 passes by the bright star Arcturus (He cometh), Nov 17-18 when Comet ISON has a close encounter with Spica (the Church), and Nov. 18-20 when Comet Encke buzzes Mercury (swift/messenger/intellect). Meanwhile, bright Comet Lovejoy is “approaching” Ursa Major (the Larger Sheepfold). Possible interpretation “He cometh for the church swiftly/cleverly”. The larger sheepfold could be the innumerable multitudes of tribulation saints. And then world judgement as both the Sun and then Ison pass dead center through Libra (the Scales) in late Nov.
A sudden outburst of brightness from sundiving Comet ISON has catapulted it to the threshold of naked-eye visibility. “I’ve been imaging Comet ISON every morning,” reports amateur astronomer Charles Coburn. of Rescue, CA. “Today, to my surprise, I could see it on my DSLR live preview screen.” These two images show the comet on consecutive days as photographed by Coburn using the same camera and telescope settings:
COMET ISON OUTBURST CONTINUES: The abrupt brightening of Comet ISON on Nov. 14th has pushed the comet into the range of naked eye visibility. Dark-sky observers around the world report seeing it with their unaided eyes on the morning of Nov. 15th. To the human eye, ISON is just a faint smudge of magnitude +5.5. Backyard telescopes are revealing much more. The effects of the outburst have propagated into the comet’s suddenly riotous tail, as shown in this image taken on the morning of Nov. 15th by Damian Peach: “It’s hard to believe this is the same comet I photographed on Nov. 10th,” says Peach. “Now that ISON has experienced an outburst, the show has really begun.” The increase in brightness and emergence of multiple gaseous streamers could be caused by fresh veins of ice opening up in the comet’s nucleus. Rapid vaporization of ice by solar heat is a sure-fire way to boost a comet’s visibility.
The meteorite fell close to the Dumnikura BoP in the Sherpur district of Bangladesh, just beside the international border and the impact was heard even 40 km away from the area where it fell. Dumnikura is a border outpost in the South Garo Hills, very close to where five police personnel were killed last week.
A resident of the neighbouring Dalu village in West Garo Hills, Dipu Marak, was witness to the incident.
He said, “We heard a loud noise around 10.30 pm last night and immediately rushed outside. We were in a state of shock. The meteorite lit up the night sky and narrowly missed us.”
One-third part of all sea life died. One-third part of all the ships were destroyed.
The Third Horn—the Star of Poison
10 The third angel blew his horn. A large star fell from heaven. It was burning with a fire that kept burning like a bright light. It fell on one-third part of the rivers and on the places where water comes out of the earth. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. One-third part of the water became poison. Many men died from drinking the water because it had become poison.
25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;
26 Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
27 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.

A report indicates that US President Barack Obama has been easing sanctions on Iran for the past five months without Congressional approval, and despite the lack of any agreement over the Islamic regime’s nuclear weapons program
Sources in Congress revealed that Obama’s administration has been suspending or lifting many sanctions without informing Congress since Iranian President Hasan Rouhani was elected in June, reports the World Tribune.
An unnamed House staffer stated that “orders to stop the designations (for new sanctions) came from the White House and State,” adding “this has not gone down well in Treasury.” The Congressional sources added that Obama’s policy has allowed Iran to maintain its crude oil exports.
A Saudi Nuclear Bomb
According to U.S. intelligence sources, there is a fight raging behind the scenes in Britain over the fact that Saudi Arabia is moving to obtain its own nuclear weapons from Pakistan, and could secure that nuclear weapons arsenal, regardless of Iran’s status.
The issue of the Saudi quest for a nuclear bomb first surfaced last month, when Amos Yadlin, the former head of Israeli Military Intelligence, told a conference in Sweden that Saudi Arabia already had a deal with Pakistan. “The Saudis will not wait one month. They already paid for the bomb, they will go to Pakistan and bring what they need to bring.”
In fact, in the late 1980s, Prince Bandar, then the Saudi Ambassador to the United States, had brokered a deal with China to obtain intermediate-range ballistic missiles and warheads. China delivered the missiles, but has yet to provide the Saudis with the warheads. However, the Pakistani nuclear warheads designed by A.Q. Khan were fitted for those IRBMs.
In his speeches this week, US Secretary of State John Kerry tried to send a message to Netanyahu along the lines of “you can trust me” — his precise words in the Iranian context being, “We are not blind and I don’t think we’re stupid.”
The trouble is that since the Arab Spring began three years ago, the White House has displayed what seems to many in the Israeli leadership to be a worrying combination of blindness and stupidity — from its intervention in Libya, its handling of Egypt under Hosni Mubarak’s regime and then under General Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, and its insistence on a settlement construction freeze in the West Bank at the beginning of Obama’s first term, to its decision not to act in Syria, despite ultimately making significant progress in dismantling Damascus’s chemical weapons.
Oh, if you think that this does not have personal implications for you, think again. Ask yourself what God meant when He said this:
And I will send a fire on Magog, and on them that dwell securely in the isles; and they shall know that I am Jehovah – Ezekiel 39:6
That ‘fire’ could be, in effect, a Solar EMP. You will want to be prepared for that.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu start a two-day visit to Cairo Wednesday, Nov. 13, to wind up a major sale of advanced Russian weaponry for the Egyptian army and the Russian Navy’s access to port facilities on the Mediterranean.
DEBKAfile’s military sources, which first revealed the coming transactions in the last week of October, now amplify that report by disclosing that Moscow has agreed to equip Egypt with a sophisticated combined double-layered system which covers both its defensive and offensive requirements.
By now everyone has heard of securitization: the process whereby banks take risky assets on their books, package, tranche them, and then re-sell them to yield chasing fiduciaries of widows and orphans. The conversion process can be nebulous, usually involving a 20 year-old evil French mastermind working for Goldman, and a billionaire hedge fund manager, who select the worthless securities put into the weakest tranche, just so the abovementioned two parties can short it while misrepresenting their conflicts of interest, and make a boatload of money when the whole securitized structure implodes. The process usually takes place “off balance sheet” via Special Purpose Vehicles so it is completely unregulated, and as such allows massive leverage.
According to many, the hidden leverage embedded in the securitization pipeline is what catalyzed the 2008 near-death experience of the financial markets.
All of this is well-known to most.
What however is certainly not known, because until a few days ago the concept did not technicall exist, is what emerged deep from the bowels of the FSB’s 2013 “Global Shadow Banking report“, and what is barely even defined anywhere in popular literature, which thus we have defined as the “unspoken, festering secret at the heart of shadow banking.”
One of the nation’s leading banks wants Congress to amend federal law adopted in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis so it and other Wall Street institutions can go back to gambling with risky investments and have taxpayers cover the losses again if they bet wrong.
Under the Dodd-Frank Act of 2010 (pdf), banks can no longer use monies backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) to invest in high-risk derivatives, such as “swaps.” This prohibition was adopted because derivatives crippled numerous key players on Wall Street five years ago, including Countrywide Mortgages, Bear Stearns,AIG, Lehman Brothers, Washington Mutual, Wachovia and others.
One of those “others” was Citigroup, which had to be bailed out by the federal government to the tune of $45 billion. A Citigroup lobbyist, though, was primarily responsible for authoring the Swaps Regulatory Improvement Act, which was approved by the U.S. House of Representatives two weeks ago.
The bill would wipe out Section 716 (pdf) of Dodd-Frank that requires banks to use a non-bank entity for trading commodity, energy and other swaps. In other words, if the legislation becomes law, financial institutions could return to conducting high-risk trading with funds that are backed by the FDIC (i.e. the taxpayer).
And just to prove that while credit card balances are plunging due to more stringent bank repayment requirements, this is more than offset by borrowers shifting to student loans, where the delinquency rate on student loans is soaring and has just hit an all time high of 11.83%, an increase of almost 1% compared to last quarter. Even according to just the government lax definition of delinquency, a whopping $120 billion in student loans will be discharged. Thank you Uncle Sam for your epically lax lending standards in a world in
which it is increasingly becoming probably that up to all of the loans will end up in deliquency.
4. Since the SDR is just an aggregate of existing currencies, it is not an independent currency. An independent currency would need to be supported by either enforceable taxation rights or some commodity or basket of commodities: gold, for example, or a “bancor”-type basket of commodities (gold, oil, grain, etc.) owned by the issuing nation/entity.
Moody’s is to cut the credit rating of US major banks, including Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan and Bank of New York Mellon. The rating agency thinks the government is now less likely to support the lenders in times of new financial difficulties.
The debt rating of the holding company of Goldman Sachs was cut from A3 to Baa1, JPMorgan – from A2 to A3, Morgan Stanley – from Baa1 to Baa2, and Bank of New York Mellon – from Aa3 to A1.
The “rating actions reflect strengthened US bank resolution tools, prompted by the Dodd-Frank Act, which affect Moody’s assumptions about US government support,” a Moody’s statement said.
The Dodd-Frank Act is a Wall Street reform that forbids the financing of bailouts with tax payer funds.
Spain’s public debt climbed sharply in September to a new record high of 954.863 billion euros, casting doubt about the government’s ability to meet its target for the end of the year. Evenfinance minister Cristobal Montoro acknowledged that “there are concerns about the pace of the increase,” adding that this meant bringing down the public deficit even more of a priority. AsEl Pais reports, according to figures released Friday by the Bank of Spain, the state’s outstanding obligations climbed 10.181 billion euros in the month from August to a level equivalent to 93.4 percent of GDP. The government’s target for the full year is 94.2 percent, a figure that has already been revised upward. The central bank estimated GDP in the 12 months to September at 1.022 trillion euros.
But, apart from that, Spanish bond spreads near pre-crisis lows…
Yep – makes perfect sense…
Maybe 2015 will be the year of the collapse.
Our entire economy runs on debt creations, vis-a-vis financialization, since we import $500 billion a year more than we export.
2015 is the year when increasing debt results in ZERO GDP growth. The end of the line. But that won’t stop the Federal Reserve and the criminals in Washington. Enjoy what time we have left before it all collapses.
“We fumbled the rollout on this health-care law,” could be President Obama’s understatement of the century. In the month-or-so since Obamacare was unleashed 106,185 people enrolled(based on a loose re-definition by the White House). However, in that same period, the WSJ reports a stunning 4.02 million people received policy cancellations. So, in a month, a total of3,918,205 fewer people are now ‘enrolled’ in a heathcare plan than before Obamacare. So far, California, Florida, and Washington are suffering the most under Obamacare…
Of the 21 ads they have posted on their website, 9 of them reference and promote having sex, taking drugs and (no not rock and roll) drinking alcohol. These ads seem to be pushing the limits, especially since they have obviously set it up to be pushed via Social Media where so many are underage. As you review these ads below, stop and ask yourself how it would make you feel to have your teen or preteen son or daughter seeing these ads. So let’s have a look at some of them.

The first three bowls parallel the first three trumpets (8:7-12) in that they affect (in sequence) the earth, the sea and the fresh waters. Yet the bowls do not merely repeat the earlier series. The differences are as conspicuous as the similarities. First, the intensity is greater. The trumpet series affected one-third of the earth, sea and fresh water respectively (as well as a third of the sun, moon and stars), while the judgments introduced by the bowls have no such limitation. Second, in contrast to the earlier series, humans are affected from the start. A third, more important difference is that the bowl series presupposes the conflict in the intervening chapters between the Christian community and the beast. The humans who suffer from these plagues are specifically those who had the mark of the beast and worshiped his image (v. 2). Still another difference, reflected perhaps in the fact that all seven judgments are repeatedly called “plagues” (15:1, 8; 16:9; compare 9:18), is that they correspond more closely to the Exodus plagues than do the judgments introduced in the trumpet series.
Tepco’s efforts to remove the radioactive fuel rods – already extremely dangerous and difficult – have hit a bump before they’ve even started.
Enenews rounds up the developments here:
Yomiuri Shimbun translated by EXSKF, Nov. 12, 2013: On November 12, TEPCO disclosed that there were three fuel assemblies […] in the Spent Fuel Pool of Reactor 4 […] that were deformed and would be difficult to remove.
Fukushima Minyu translated by EXSKF, Nov. 13, 2013: According to TEPCO, one of the damaged fuel assemblies is bent at a 90-degree angle [literal meaning: bent in the shape of a Japanese character “く”; actual angle could be less]. It was bent 25 years agowhen a mistake occurred in handling the fuel. The other two were found to be damaged 10 years ago; there are small holes on the outside from foreign objects.
Cause of genetic disorder found in ‘dark matter’ of DNA
For the first time, scientists have used new technology which analyses the whole genome to find the cause of a genetic disease in what was previously referred to as ‘junk DNA’
In a study published today (November 10 2013) in Nature Genetics, the team discovered that the condition is caused by mutations in genomic “dark matter”, the vast stretches of DNA that do not contain genes that accounts for 99 per cent of the human genome. Instead, it is responsible for making sure that genes are “switched on” at the right time and in the right part of the body. The effects of this region on human development is only beginning to be understood, thanks to technologies which allow scientists to analyse the whole genome – all 3 billion letters in our DNA codes.
To bring back a semblance of the tactile, researchers at the MIT Media Lab have created a 3D, shapeshifting surface called inFORM that allows users to execute common physical interactions with digital matter. Potential uses can range from the simple, yet powerful holding of a person’s hand from thousands of miles away, or bringing a 3D model to life for enhanced creativity.
