7314 Gleaning Point Within The Circle Second Of Sirius Timing Mark Of The 666 Beast IDF Nuclear Tweet Leak

by amongthenumberedsaints

Are we mad to have let a maverick scientist create a virus that could wipe out 400 million people?

So what exactly has Professor Kawaoka done before?

Only last month Kawaoka revealed in a scientific paper that he had also synthesised a bird flu virus — called ‘1918-like Avian’.

How to start World War 3? Step 1) Hack IDF Twitter account; Step 2) Tweet that Israel’s secret nuclear facility has suffered a potential leak after shelling; Step 3) wait for US response… It appears (though for now has not been confirmed) that the Israel Defense Force’s Twitter account was hacked by the Syrian Electronic Army who then tweeted “#WARNING: Possible nuclear leak in the region after 2 rockets hit Dimona nuclear facility” The Tweet was deleted soon after – not before all major newswires picked it up – and the report has been denied by the IDF. We can only imagine the market response to this tweet if US traders were not all out buying beers and burgers..

Israel Defense Force Deletes “Nuclear Leak” Tweet; Blames Cyber Terrorism 

Great sky scene on July 5! The moon is near the bright star Spica and the red planet Mars. If you’re in Central America and South America on the night of July 5, you might actually see this first quarter moon cover Mars, in an event that astronomers call an occultation.

Tomorrow, Americans will celebrate their independence from an over-taxing tyrant by eating and drinking to excess – and rightly so. However, what many will find as they pile into their friendly local grocer (Costco), is that the price of the July 4th smorgasbord has never (ever) been higher (as perhaps, just perhaps, another tyrannical entity – the Fed – has taxed them in a much more pernicious manner). Ground beef burgers have never been more expensive (+16.5% from last year)… and nor has white bread, American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, ice cream, and chips…

Your July 4th Burger has never been more expensive… (up 16.5% from last year!!)

The fast-food chain posted a video on Wednesday that shows scenes from a San Francisco location where it sold a “Proud Whopper.” Customers were not told what is in the burger, which comes wrapped in rainbow paper. Once opened up, a message inside the wrapper states, “We are all the same inside.”.

This is the part that really interests me. When did these companies first introduce this substance into their products and what is the growth trend? My guess is that as food costs have risen, the proportion of non-nutritonal fillers has increased substantially. That said, I’d like to see some data and I haven’t yet.

My big takeaway here is the same as last year’s when I first started writing about the trend. As the cost of food continues to rise, the cost of not paying attention to what you are eating rises exponentially. Companies will continue to try to mask inflation by shrinking package sizes, and when that is no longer possible, increasingly inserting empty fillers (or worse) into their products.

How Fast Food Providers Beat Inflation – Add Wood Pulp To Burgers 

On Monday, Quartz published an article by Devin Cohen titled, There is a Secret Ingredient in Your Burgers: Wood Pulp. Given the headline and people’s already present suspicion regarding all of the shady and potentially dangerous ingredients hidden in food items, the article gained a lot of traction. In subsequent days, most journalists and bloggers have focused on the dangers of this additive (unclear) and whether or not it is pervasive throughout the food chain as opposed to just fast food (it appears to be).

The one angle that has not been explored as much is the overall trend. Let’s go ahead and assume that wood pulp is a safe thing to consume, it certainly seems to have no nutritional value whatsoever. So why are companies inserting it into food items? To mask inflation and earn more profits most likely. This was a major theme I focused on last year in a series of pieces on stealth inflation and food fraud, a couple of which can be read below:

This Independence Day weekend, drivers won’t see any relief from high gas prices. Although prices retreated by a fraction of a cent at the beginning of the week, AAA predicts holiday travelers will pay the most at the pump since 2008.

In its monthly gas price report released June 30, AAA said, “With Independence Day only a few days away, today’s national average price of gas is $3.68 per gallon. This average is considerably more expensive than recent years for the holiday. The national average on July 4 in previous years was: $3.48 (2013); $3.34 (2012); $3.57 (2011); $2.74 (2010); $2.62 (2009); and $4.10 (2008).” The motorist organization expected prices to remain high throughout the month of July, ranging from $3.60-$3.70 per gallon.

“Prices could climb higher if there are new developments in Iraq or a major hurricane,” AAA warns.

Iraq’s prime minister has warned that an extremist group’s declaration of an Islamic state in territory it has seized in Iraq and Syria is a threat to the entire region.

Nouri al-Maliki says the announcement this week by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant that it has unilaterally established a caliphate “is a message to all the states in the region that you are inside the red circle now.”<–Point within the circle prophetic ”irony”? Lol, um, no. This is perfect timing that confirms the prophetic timing and revelation described by The Word Of our Father in Christ.

The burden of Damascus. Lo, Damascus is taken away from [being] a city, And it hath been a heap — a ruin.

2 Forsaken are the cities of Aroer, For droves they are, and they have lain down, And there is none troubling.
3 And ceased hath the fortress from Ephraim, And the kingdom from Damascus, And the remnant of Aram are as the honour of the sons of Israel, The affirmation of Jehovah of Hosts! 4 And it hath come to pass, in that day, Wax poor doth the honour of Jacob, And the fatness of his flesh doth wax lean.

5 And it hath come to pass, As the gathering by the reaper of the standing corn, And his arm the ears reapeth, And it hath come to pass, As the gathering of the ears in the valley of Rephaim, 6 And left in him have been gleanings, As the compassing of an olive, Two — three berries on the top of a branch, Four — five on the fruitful boughs, The affirmation of Jehovah, God of Israel!

7 In that day doth man look to His Maker, Yea, his eyes to the Holy One of Israel look,
8 And he looketh not unto the altars. The work of his own hands, And that which his own fingers made He seeth not — the shrines and the images.

9 In that day are the cities of his strength As the forsaken thing of the forest, And the branch that they have left, Because of the sons of Israel, It also hath been a desolation.

10 Because thou hast forgotten the God of thy salvation, And the rock of thy strength hast not remembered, Therefore thou plantest plants of pleasantness, And with a strange slip sowest it, 11 In the day thy plant thou causest to become great, And in the morning thy seed makest to flourish, A heap [is] the harvest in a day of overflowing, And of mortal pain.

Isaiah

Sixth Bowl: Euphrates Dried Up

12 Then the sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates, and its water was dried up, so that the way of the kings from the east might be prepared. 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs coming out of the mouth of the dragon, out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet. 14 For they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the earth and[f] of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

15 “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”

16 And they gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armageddon.[g]

Revelation

Criticism of the Turkish government has been voiced by civil society activists in Northern Syria concerning Turkey’s control of the River Euphrates. In recent weeks, the Turks have stopped the flow of water into Syria from the mighty river, which has its source in Turkey’s Taurus Mountains before flowing into Syria and on into Iraq. The Euphrates is the main source of water for the Northern Syrian province of Raqqa.

“This threatens us with a real disaster within the next few days,” said Abu Mohamed, a local activist from Raqqa. He pointed out that half of the villages in the district currently have no water available for residential use or agricultural purposes.

The Euphrates has three main dams within Syria: Tishreen, Euphrates and Al-Baath. The Euphrates dam is considered the most important of the three. The water level in the Euphrates Lake (formerly known as Al-Assad Lake) has dropped significantly. It is the largest man-made lake in Syria at 85km long; until recently it held more than 14.2 billion cubic metres of water. The lake and hydro-electric power station on its dam is the source of water and electricity to Raqqa and eastern Aleppo.

Turkey initially cut the flow of water into Syria at the beginning of May for six days. In June, the government decreased the river flow gradually until it was stopped completely by the middle of the month.

Some villages have no safe drinking water, forcing locals to use water taken directly from the lake, despite the danger of disease.

The pro-opposition Violation Documentation Centre in Syria (VDC) also condemned Turkey’s behaviour, warning that the consequences will be negative. “This is a weird action,” said Bassam Al-Ahmad, the VDC spokesperson. He called on the Turkish government to reverse the decision. “Our demands are clear for the Turkish government to take immediate measures to stop this action.”

Since we celebrate July 4th as the birthday of the US in commemoration of the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and we know that the timing of this event has moved three days (or degrees) in the last 210 years, we must presume that either the Founding Fathers were a little off in their celestial reckoning, or that they adjusted their date to account for the slippage into the future.

Sirius

Interestingly, the major axis of the earth’s orbit is such that we are farthest from the sun on July 4th and closest to it on January 3rd each year, so that at the beginning of our current calendar year, the earth lies between the Sun and Sirius, and Sirius culminates (is at it’s high point in it’s nightly path and dirctly on the north south meridian line) at midnight; that is, the midnight new year’s fireworks celebrations serve as a celebration of the meridian passing of Sirius as we pass between it and the sun, while the fourth of July celebrations mark the conjunction of the Sun with Sirius.

Point Within A Circle.

These symbols originate from ancient civilizations, long before even King Solomon’s day…brought forward generation by generation via inculcation (teaching) and by the ancient monuments found to be inscribed with these symbols which Egyptologists, geologists and other scholars study in their attempts to understand Man’s history.

Their findings reveal pieces of antiquity which some may find too deep, too mysterious or too sexual to be openly displayed before members of our present day brethren, some of whom may shun the knowledge of such.

Mankind’s shared history around the globe is fascinating, nonetheless.

Point Within A Circle in Egypt: The 2 vertical lines on either side of the Point Within a Circle symbol date back before Solomon. (who lived nearly 1,000 years before John the Baptist was born.) On early Egyptian monuments have been found the Alpha and Omega, (the symbol of God as the beginning and the end…or, therefore eternal), in the center of the circle bordered by 2 upright, perpendicular parallel serpents.

I have gone on record that the most dangerous organization is the now French led IMF with Christine Lagarde at the helm, which has presented a concept report that debt cuts for over-indebted states are uncompromising and are to be performed more effectively in the future by defaulting on retirement accounts held in life insurance, mutual funds and other types of pension schemes, or arbitrarily extending debt perpetually so you cannot redeem. Yes you read correctly, The new IMF paper is described in great detail exactly how to now allow the private sector, which has invested in government bonds, to be expropriated to pay for the national debts of the socialist governments.

Expropriation Is Back – Is Christine Lagarde The Most Dangerous Woman In The World?

Already in October 2013, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), suggested the Euro Crisis should be handled by raising taxes. The IMF lobbied for a property tax in Europe that should be imposed where there are no such taxes. The IMF has advocated for a general “debt tax” in the amount of 10 percent for each household in the Eurozone, which also has only modest savings.

People are blind. They think this is authorization to go get the rich. They are going after everyone for the “rich” are tiny players in the game. People do not want to hear that. They want to think the rich can pay the bills for everyone else. That is not practical and even Julius Caesar recognized that they may be a small group, but they are the engine of the economy that creates jobs. It would have been popular for him to wipe out all the rich who he was against. But in the end, he had to solve the debt crisis by simply retroactively attribute all interest to capital in order to solve the debt crisis that led to the first civil war.

There is no discussion whatsoever of reforming the system. They are merely planning to default on savers expropriating their savings, but continue to borrow forever. Nobody is even bothering to look at the structure that simply cannot work.

The IMF proposal comes during the World Cup knowing that the press will not cover it much and the average person cares more about who wins what than the sneak attack upon their own lives. This far-reaching plan for the expropriation of savers, investors and retirees clearly shows the reality of socialism.

Sometimes, however, the agents literally stage the scenes to resemble robberies — sneak and steal operations. In one 2010 case, federal investigators broke into an Cleveland apartment, collected evidence, and then “trashed the place to make it look like a burglary.”

The feds have used similar tactics when searching vehicles. According to a Department of Justice document, DEA agents used a delayed-notice warrant to literally steal a suspect’s car in March 2004. After following the suspect to a restaurant in Buffalo, NY, one agent “used a duplicate key to enter the vehicle and drive away while other agents spread broken glass in the parking space to create the impression that the vehicle had been stolen.” [1]

The government is supposed to eventually tell the subject that a warrant had been served on them, but that may not happen for months or sometimes more than a year. A report by the Director Director of the Administrative Office (AO) of U.S. Courts found that the period of delay in telling the suspect they had been served a warrant ranged from 1 to 455 days. The most common length of delay was 90 days [2].

The use of these tactics opens the doors for numerous problems, corruption, and unintended consequences.

On July 4th, the United States will celebrate Independence Day once again. But who in the world are we trying to kid? Our founders intended to create a society where freedom and liberty would be maximized, but that is not what America looks like today. Instead, we live in a country that literally has millions of laws, rules and regulations. We have a government that is obsessed with spying on the entire planet and that tries to watch, monitor, track and record as much information about all of us as it possibly can. A “Big Brother” surveillance grid is being constructed all around us, and our militarized police are becoming more brutal with each passing day. Sadly, most Americans don’t seem too alarmed by any of this. In fact, a new Gallup survey has found that 79 percent of Americans are “satisfied” with the level of freedom in this nation. That is a very alarming statistic.

Yhe scripture concerning the Mark of the Beast states that people will not be able to buy or sell without the mark, leading some to relate the Bible verses to the publicized technology. They have warned Christians not to take the mark because of the Bible scriptures; other believers have been more skeptical about the claims. “And he causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, except he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.”.

Is it a waste of time to try and warn humanity about the satanic nature of the world’s leadership? Is humanity doomed? Is there no hope to overcome the endless attacks upon humanity by the globalists? Are we a nation under judgment? Should we just lie down and take our beating because there is nothing that we can do? Is there anything we can do? Can the average person be victorious against the globalists?

To believe that you have control over anything but your soul is naive. The ultimate goal of the globalists is not to just control your mind and body, they want it all. They do not want you and your soul entering the Kingdom of Heaven. THEY WANT TO CONTROL AND DESTROY YOUR SOUL! This is the primary reason that Christians are under attack all across the country and why anti-Christian doctrine and beliefs are being glorified in every fabric of our lives!.

NWO Occult Crypto Fascist 911-666-Debt Team Obozo’s self-proclaimed strong delusion and prophetic leaping demonic frog foreign-policy “achievements” have been U.S. troop withdrawals from Iraq, and “Al-Qaida has been decimated and is on the run!” These two boasts have now come back to haunt him. Al-Qaida has morphed into a bigger monster that is about to take over Iraq. And what was President Obama’s response?

“We don’t have the resources. Let the local leaders deal with them.”

As we witness the brutalization of Iraq by the ISIS terror organization consider this: this Islamic march of death leads to Jerusalem. The leading result of the call of the people in the Arab world for the overthrow of unsatisfactory leaders has been their cause being hijacked by insurgent jihadist terrorists.

We saw that in Libya with the fall of Gadhafi. We saw it in Egypt where Mubarak was replaced by the Muslim Brotherhood, in this case an in-house jihadist movement. We see it in Syria where the people’s cry against Assad has led to an influx of Al-Qaida type groups vying for dominance. Now we witness the conquest of Iraq by a vicious Islamic terror regime against which Al-Qaida pales into moderation.

And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

5 And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

6 And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

7 And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

Hundreds of West Africans could be carrying the deadly Ebola virus and not know it, potentially infecting hundreds more, as cash-strapped governments and overwhelmed aid agencies struggle to contain the virus’s spread.
At least 1,500 people have not yet been traced who are known to have come into contact with others confirmed or suspected to be infected with the haemorrhagic fever, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) told The Telegraph.
Many more could be moving freely in the three countries battling the virus, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, but fear of the illness and mistrust of Western medicine means they refuse to come forward to speak to doctors.

“In Liberia, our biggest challenge is denial, fear and panic. Our people are very much afraid of the disease,” Bernice Dahn, Liberia’s deputy health minister, told Reuters on the sidelines of the Accra meeting.
“People are afraid but do not believe that the disease exists and because of that people get sick and the community members hide them and bury them, against all the norms we have put in place,” she said.
The virus remains contagious even if the person it infected dies..

Empty malls are sending a message loud and clear – as shoppers migrate increasingly to the web, retailers must make do with fewer and smaller stores. While the downward spiral of nationwide chains like RadioShack and American Apparel grab the latest headlines, a rash of retail bankruptcies in the middle market show just how hard it is for smaller chains to steadily close stores and also stay afloat.

Chapter 11 cases have dominated the mid-market retail space this year with Coldwater Creek, Ashley Stewart, Dots and Brookstone among the casualties.

Store Closures May Send More Mid-Market Retailers Into Spending Spiral

Consumer trends aside, retailers are fighting to stay alive through a storm of store closures, and retail experts expect even more to come. The issue is most acute for chains grappling with high mall rents, an expense that significantly drags down profits and prevents many stores from being able to earn enough per square foot to justify the elevated cost of overhead.

BREAKING NEWS: Hurricane Arthur to increase to Category 2 strength by landfall late Thursday or early Friday.

The civilian employment to population ratio remained at cycle lows, if rising modestly from 58.9% to 59.0%

As a result, the labor force participation rate remained flat at 62.8%, matching the lowest print since 1978.

Those following the labor force participation rate (which as even the Census Bureau showed is declining not so much due to demographics but due to older people working longer and pushing younger people out of the labor force as we showed yesterday) will hardly be surprised to learn that alongside today’s impressive NFP print, the reason why the unemployment rate took another big step lower from 6.3% to 6.1%, was once again as a result of the number of people not in the labor force, which in June rose to a fresh record high of 92,120K, up 111K from June.

We are pulling forward our projection for Fed tightening (the first time we have done so in recent memory); we now see lift-off occurring in 15Q3, rather than 15Q4. For year-end 2015 we see the funds rate at 1.0%, for 2016 2.5%, and for 2017 3.5%.

And what happens when rates rise… (as we detailed here)

It stands to reason that when the Fed eventually lifts interest rates, we’ll see the usual effects. After a sustained rise in rates, you can safely bet on:

Fixed investment and business earnings dropping sharply
GDP growth following investment and earnings lower
Many people losing their jobs
Risky assets performing poorly

These consequences follow not only from the arithmetic of debt
service and present value calculations, but also from the mood swinging
psychology of entrepreneurs, lenders and investors.

JPM Pulls Forward Date Of First Rate Hike

Our conclusion is to reject forecasts calling for the economy to
power right through interest rate hikes without stumbling. A more likely
scenario is that policy “normalization” leads us directly into the next
bust. Alternatively, the Fed might abort its planned rate hikes,
allowing economic and financial market imbalances to continue growing.
Either way, we can expect recurring booms and busts until our monetary
approach is rebuilt on stronger policy principles..

JPM Pulls Forward Date Of First Rate Hike

Is good news about to become the ultimate bad news. JPMorgan’s Michael Feroli notes that (for the first time in recent memory) is pulling forward their projected date for Fed tightening and the inevitable end of the free-money cycle. Based on a belief in the committee’s limited appetite to wait in inflation and today’s report, JPMorgan notes a Q2 tightening seems plausible. Of course, this will be repeated mantra like as evidence of escape velocity and the status quo is back but, as we noted here, while policy economists claim that interest rates can be “normalized” at no cost; a more likely scenario is that policy “normalization” leads us directly into the next bust.

Something tells us that the fact that the BLS just reported June part-time jobs rose by just shy of 800,000 the biggest monthly jump since 1993, will hardly get much airplay today. Because remember: when it comes to jobs, it is only the quantity that matters, never the quality.

June Full-Time Jobs Plunge By Over Half A Million, Part-Time Jobs Surge By 800K, Most Since 1993

Is this the reason for the blowout, on the surface, payroll number? In June the BLS reports that the number of full-time jobs tumbled by 523K to 118.2 million while part-time jobs soared by 799K to over 28 million!.

As explained earlier, the focus today will be on Draghi’s conference where much more clarity on the TLTRO program (not to mention the ABS purchase) is expected. However, with an epic data avalanche out of the US at the same time, we wouldn’t be surprised if a few algos blow a gasket in the confusion what is the more important headline..

ECB, AKA Euro Peon C I L L E R Beast, Keeps Rates Unchanged, Deposit Facility Rate Stays Negative

Unlike a month ago, this time there are no NIRP announcement fireworks from the ECB which just announced it kept all rates unchanged, with the main refinancing operation rate flat at 0.15%, while the deposit facility continues its existence in NIRP purgatory at negative 0.1%.

The Department of Health and Human Services on Tuesday forbade a U.S. congressman from observing federal facilities in his state where hundreds of illegal immigrant children are currently being held.

Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R., Okla.) said in a Wednesday news release that HHS staff at a department facility at Fort Sill told him he had to schedule an appointment to see the facilities, which are currently housing up to 1,200 Central American children who recently crossed the southern border illegally.

“There is no excuse for denying a federal representative from Oklahoma access to a federal facility in Oklahoma where unaccompanied children are being held,” Bridenstine said in a statement. “Any member of Congress should have the legal authority to visit a federal youth detention facility without waiting three weeks.”
