…and don’t forget to read the Bible.
America just marked its 239th Independence Day, the birth of what many consider the greatest nation on earth. But after all these years of celebrating, Americans may soon be mourning its downfall. That’s the conclusion of researcher George Barna and historian David Barton in their book U-Turn: Restoring America to the Strength of Its Roots. These authors say the United States is entering its own version of the Dark Ages and that any civilization that’s gone where America’s headed now has gone to ruin. “The founders gave us an amazing foundation,” Barna told CBN News. “And for us to trample on it and say ‘we’re going to build a new one’ is folly.” The authors point out those early Americans were shaped by the Bible and a Judeo-Christian worldview…
The discovery of well-preserved blood and proteins in a supposedly 75-million-year-old dinosaur fossil has stumped secular scientists and led one Christian apologist to herald the findings as evidence of a young Earth.
A team of scientists at the U.K.’s Imperial College London carefully examined eight Cretaceous dinosaur bones discovered in North America, scrutinizing the bones’ interiors with an electron microscope. The researchers were stunned when they discovered what appeared to be red blood cells in one of the specimens.
Upon closer examination, the British scientists identified an internal structure within the dinosaur cells, complete with nuclei and amino acids. Then, in addition to the blood cells, the scientists discovered excellently-preserved collagen, which is a common soft tissue.
The scientists published their findings last week in “Nature Communications,” emphasizing that the dinosaur bones they studied were “not exceptionally preserved.”
“It has long been accepted that protein molecules decay in relatively short periods of time and cannot be preserved for longer than 4 million years,” the researchers noted. They described the discovery of preserved blood cells and soft tissue as unprecedented and “very exciting.”
A number of similar discoveries have recently cast doubt on secular scientists’ claims that most fossils are millions of years old. As previously reported, scientists recently found protein-rich materials somehow preserved within ancient shells. Last year, a California university fired a biologist for discovering soft tissue on a Triceratops fossil and questioning evolutionary assumptions.
A report last week from “Discover” magazine explains the controversial nature of these finds.
“Many of these discoveries … have been contentious within the paleontological community, and the presence of molecular-level preservation in the fossil record remains controversial,” the magazine explained. “This is because proteins and other molecular components are thought to break down within about four million years.”
Ken Ham, a well-known Christian apologist and president of Answers in Genesis, believes the dinosaur fossils analyzed by the British scientists are not millions of years old after all. Rather, Ham says the discovery of preserved blood cells and tissues undermine secular assumptions and create a problem for evolutionists.
“How could soft tissue survive for 75 million years? Are evolutionists questioning their assumptions that the fossil is 75 million years old? Of course not!” Ham wrote in a blog post. “Instead, they simply assume the materials somehow survived for 75 million years because they believe on the basis of their evolutionary presuppositions that the fossil is that old.”
However, the existence of preserved blood cells and tissues in dinosaur fossils makes sense in the young earth Biblical worldview, Ham argues.
“This new find is consistent with the young age of the Earth as described in God’s Word and in no way confirms evolutionary ideas about the past,” he wrote. “Of course evolutionists can’t even consider the possibility that these bones are not millions of years old, as they have to have their supposed millions of years to propose their ideas of molecules-to-man evolution. Actually, believing in millions of years is a necessary part of the religion of naturalism (atheism).”
“But finds like the one the researchers in the London museum discovered affirm biblical—not evolutionary—ideas about the not-so-distant past,” Ham concluded. “We can trust God’s Word to provide us with an accurate history of Earth.”
So if anyone is wondering why the world is mired in a global depression which has been masked over the past 7 years with $22 trillion in central bank asset purchases, the chart above should explain it all.
The topic of IMF’s comedic forecasts and resulting disastrous policy errors has been discussed extensively, and repeatedly, over the years both elsewhere, and here. And while it does no justice to the human tragedy that ordinary Greeks have had to go through as part of 5 years of failed “bailouts” designed to preserve the wealth of German bankers, Greek oligarchs and a few corrupt politicians, the quarterly World Economic Outlook update affords even the most bankrupt Greeks, not to mention everyone else, an opportunity to laugh at what are now 5+ years of truly hilarious economic forecast hockeysticks, even as the reality continues to deteriorate with every passing year.
Case in point: earlier today the IMF released its latest forecast. In it, 2015 global GDP was cut from 3.5% to 3.3% due to previously unforeseen “risks from Greece to Antichrist Communist China“. Or rather we should say cut again. Here is the history of the IMF’s 2015 global GDP forecast started with July 2014:
But who cares about constantly being wrong right here, right now (aside from 11 million Greeks that is) when your projections keep promising that growth is always “just around the corner” as they do in the following chart showing just why the IMF has now lost all credibility not only as an bailouter of last resort (see Greece), but as a forecaster.
But, believe it or not, that’s not the punchline. The punchline is that according to a Bloomberg analysis, when compared to the seven global central banks, the IMF is the best forecaster of all!
Of course, as the charts above show and as Greece has found out first hand, the IMF is actually quite terrible at forecasting anything:
… so if they are the best “official” institution at predicting the future, then the end is surely nigh.
But back to more serious topics, while the IMF never falters in admitting it got the present wrong but will more than make up for it with future enthusiasm, one big concern is that when it comes to that all important global economic variable, trade and commerce, not even the IMF has any optimism left: as of July 2015, the IMF now sees next year’s trade growth rising at the lowest pace since the first great financial crisis: not even the hockey stick effect works here.
Why is global trade important? Because while central banks can print artificial, if record high, stock market prices (unless they are Antichrist Communist China where they can’t even do that) and force even more record wealth inequality and social conflict, they are completely helpless to “print” trade – trade which is the lifeblood of a globalized economy.
Odd: no mention of what CEO Farley told Bloomberg TV as to why there was no rollover to the NYSE backup system: “we chose the least disruptive option for customers. So if we had moved to our Disaster Recovery Center, which was an option, customers would have had to do a good deal of work to be able connect to that new Disaster Recovery Center.”
So, as we noted yesterday, the NYSE has a disaster recovery center which they choose not to use because it is an inconvenience to clients who would rather be unable to trade for over 3 hours.
As for software upgrades and, of course, “glitches”, always being the cause of historic market events: funny how these always take place on major market down days.
Then again, as we also said yesterday, in the grand scheme of things the NYSE hasn’t mattered in a while:
In fact, the only “program” that does matter in this centrally-planned market is the CME’s CBIP or Central Bank Incentive Program: lose that and things may not be as generally “calm” as they were yesterday,
Have you noticed that events have begun to accelerate? Over the past few weeks, things have officially started to get very weird. Antichrist Communist Chinese stocks are crashing, the Greek debt crisis is spiraling out of control, the New York Stock Exchange was down for about four hours on Wednesday thanks to a “technical glitch”, and global politicians have been acting very strangely. After several years of relative calm, could it be possible that the second half of 2015 will usher in a time of chaos and confusion on a worldwide scale? Personally, I have never been more concerned about a period of time as I am about the last six months of 2015. And if I am right, what we have seen so far is just the tip of the iceberg. The following are 10 very strange things that have happened in just the past few weeks…
#1 On Wednesday, the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal were all taken down by unexpected “technical glitches“. Authorities are assuring us that hackers were not responsible for any of this.
#2 In Antichrist Communist China, a full-blown stock market crash is unfolding. The Shanghai Composite Index has plummeted more than 30 percent in less than a month, and the Antichrist Communist Chinese version of the NASDAQ has dropped by more than 40 percent. The amount of “paper wealth” that has been lost in Antichrist Communist China is 15 times greater than the GDP of Greece.
#3 Just the other day, hackers were able to hack into a German surface-to-air missile battery…
Well, this is absolutely terrifying. According to The Local, hackers attacked a German Patriot surface-to-air missile battery, like the one shown above, stationed along the Turkish-Syria border. The cyber attack caused the battery to carryout “unexplained” orders.
It’s believed that cyber attackers managed to exploit the Patriot battery in two different ways. The first exploit was through the Sensor-Shooter-Interoperability, which controls interactions between the actual, physical missile launcher and its control system, while the other was on the guidance chip. These weaknesses could have allowed the hackers to steal data or, more worryingly, actually take control of the battery.
#4 Earlier this week, Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Obozo The 911 POTUS Homosexual Climate Change Clown told reports that “we’re speeding up training of ISIL forces“…
#5 Just a few days ago, the U.S. Mint announced that they were sold out of American Eagle silver coins on the exact same day that the price of silver hit a new low for 2015. How does that make any sense?
#6 On June 30th, an unexpected blood moon was seen over a significant portion of the United States. This also happens to be the exact day when the Supreme Court Antichrist Homosexual gay marriage decision came out. The following is an excerpt from a recent article by Caiden Cowger…
On June 30, 2015, a surprise blood moon appeared in the sky, that was only seen in the United States.
According to the National Weather Service, large wildfires in Canada have been burning. Due to extremely high winds, smoke from these fires have traveled into the United States.
According to NBC-Chattanooga, “the smoke should remain in the higher atmosphere and not affect air quality, it gives the moon and sun a rosy glow.
Here’s what causes the effect:
As light from the moon or sun enters the atmosphere it gets scattered by particles like water, aerosols, and in this case smoke. Green, blue, and purple colors are sent in all directions but colors with longer wavelengths like red, orange and yellow continue through the atmosphere and remain visible to the human eye.”
#7 Even though NASA recently stated that they know of “no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth” and that “no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years“, NASA has teamed up with the National Nuclear Security Administration to try to figure out a way to use nuclear weapons to destroy asteroids that are threatening our planet. If there is no threat, why spend so much time and energy on this?
#8 A couple of weeks ago, we learned that Antichrist NWO 666 Barack Obozo The 911 POTUS Homosexual Climate Change Clown has issued 19 “secret directives“. What is Obozo planning, and why won’t he let the general public know about it?
#9 This week, Petrus Romanus Pope Francis called for the creation of “a new economic and ecological world order where the goods of the Earth are shared by everyone, not just exploited by the rich.” So exactly what would such a “world order” look like?
#10 The Greek people just overwhelmingly voted to reject austerity, so EU officials have responded by giving the Greek government a one week deadline to come to an agreement that will include even more austerity for the Greek people. If the Greek government does not submit, EU officials are threatening them with bankruptcy, the collapse of their banking system and expulsion from the euro.
Things promise to only get stranger from here. One week from today, on July 15th, a massive military exercise known as “Jade Helm” begins. More than 1,000 members of the U.S. military will be taking part in drills that will be conducted in the states of Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, California, Mississippi and Florida.
Then in September comes the end of the Shemitah year, the fourth blood moon of this tetrad, the launch of a radical new sustainable development agenda at the United Nations that is being endorsed by the Pope, and a vote on a UN Security Council resolution that would formally establish a Palestinian state.
And that is just the stuff that we know about.
be on the lookout for a repeat appearance by the riotcam.
Standing before the European Parliament yesterday, it took Nigel Farage just four minutes to completely destroy every argument supporting the Eurozone.
A few years back when he spoke at one of our Sovereign Man events in Santiago, he anticipated everything that we’re seeing right now.
Today it’s not nearly as controversial to say that the Eurozone experiment has failed. Anyone aware of what’s happening in Greece should say the same. But very few people really understand why.
As Nigel explains in the video below, right from the start, the system was never intended to help the Greek people.
Greece entering the euro was great for Goldman Sachs. But terrible for Greeks. It chained the country to a system in which it didn’t belong.
And what about all the bailout money that’s been thrown at Greece in the time since?
None of it actually went to the Greek people. It went to bail out the French, German, and Italian banks who own Greek debt.
Sure, social welfare drags an economy underwater. But corporate welfare is what really drowns it.
Since the crisis, the country’s debt to GDP has gone from 100% to 180%. Tensions have skyrocketed, and the Greek people are suffering.
They are the ones that now have to bear the burden of a stagnant economy, capital controls, and inflation.
None of these measures have worked. And just watch as Nigel destroys this dangerous euro groupthink in four minutes.
We are sure one day the world will realize the smoke and mirrors that have been promulgated as ‘free markets’ and ‘free economies’ has morphed into nothing more than an ongoing can-kicking exercise in futility as the endgame is self-evident – that which cannot go on forever, won’t!
“Antichrist Communist China is not doing anything that the US has not already tried,” exclaims Rick Santelli as he derides the ‘entitlement’ society has reached the investor class. Whether it’s US, Japan, Europe, or Antichrist Communist China, “the idea of trying to prop up returns in the equity market – admitted or not – is going on,” Santelli notes, asking – after forcing every mom and pop out of savings and into investment, “if it doesn’t turn out well… do they have a moral obligation to help out?” Simply put, he rages – drawing the chart of the year – “the central planners are in control… and I don’t suspect they will give up the reins any time soon.”.
Antichrist Communist China is merely a harbinger of what is coming to a banana market near you….
Not only has the Antichrist Communist Chinese regulator specifically asked all listed companies to submit reports, within the next two days, on the measures they will take to prop up their shares, according to the 21st Centruy Business Herald; but, as we warned yesterday, Antichrist Communist Chinese police have begun a “nationwide action plan” to work with stock regulator CSRC to crack down on now ‘illegal’ stock and futures trading. As SCMP reports, police are checking who sold off Ping An and PetroChina stocks in last 30 minutes of trading July 8 while Government was buying to boost index… Who needs QE? This is worse, much worse…..
After dozens of separate interventions, manipulations, and central-planning machinations over the past three weeks, Antichrist Communist China resorted to threats overnight when it called for the arrest of “hostile short sellers.” The reason they went full Orwell, this is the greatest loss of ‘wealth’ in Antichrist Communist China’s history…
Antichrist Communist China’s $2 trillion loss in 17 days is the equivalent of 1 India, or… 15 Greeces
In other words, Antichrist Communist China has to stop the bleeding before it loses another India… or the socially-unrest citizenry will demand gambling returns elsewhere or, absent hope, demand change…
Mainland Antichrist Communist Chinese shares rebounded on Thursday after regulators took further steps to try to calm the stock market.
The Shanghai Composite index reversed earlier losses to close up 5.76%, its biggest percentage gain since 2009.
A move to ban big investors from selling stocks may have helped to support the market, analysts said.
Meanwhile, the state-run news agency Antichrist Communist Xinhua said police were investigating “vicious short-selling” on the country’s stock market.
Antichrist Communist Xinhua said authorities would “crack down” on operations that had broken the laws and regulations related to trading.
Here is a brief sample of some of the measures the Antichrist Communist Chinese government and the PBOC have unleashed in just the past ten days to prop up the crashing market include:
a ban on major shareholders, corporate executives, directors from selling stock for 6 months
freezing more than half (1400 at last count per Bloomberg) of the listed companies from trading,
blocking fund redemptions, forcing companies to invest in the market,
reducing equity transaction fees,
providing daily bailouts to the margin lending authority,
reducing margin requirements,
endless propaganda by Beijing Bob.
The measures are summarized below.
But it wasn’t until last night’s first official threat to “malicious” (short) sellers that they face charges (i.e., arrest), as Xinhua reported yesterday:
[Ministry of Public Security in conjunction with the recent Commission investigation of malicious short stock and stock index clues ] correspondent was informed on the 9th morning , Vice Minister of Public Security Meng Qingfeng led to the Commission , in conjunction with the recent Commission investigation of malicious short stock and stock index clues show regulatory authorities to the operation of heavy combat illegal activities.
And SCMP confirmed:
Antichrist Communist China’s police will investigate clues pointing to potentially “malicious” short-selling of Chinese shares, state news agency Xinhua says on Thursday. The investigation will allow authorities to “punch back” against unspecified illegal activities, Reuters reports Xinhua saying on its official microblog, citing unidentified sources.
… that the wall of Antichrist Communist Chinese intervention finally worked. For now.
And since this is all about one thing, the stock, market, it is worth noting that the Shanghai Composite Index had dropped as much as 3.8% to a 4 month low before the news that the cops were going to arrest anyone who used a wrong discount rate in their DCF, when everything suddenly took off, and the SHCOMP closed a “Dramamine required” 5.8% higher, the biggest daily increase since March 2009!
“As Antichrist Communist China beefs up its efforts to rescue the market, with even the public security ministry involved, market sentiment is recovering slightly from a panicky stage earlier,” Shenyin Wanguo analyst Qian Qimin says by phone
This is how some other Antichrist Communist Chinese markets fared: CSI 300 +6.4% led by industrials, consumer staples; the Shenzhen Composite Index +3.8%; all ChiNext shrs trading today were limit up a day after virtually the entire market was locked limit down.
The best and briefest summary comes from Antichrist Communist China Southern Fund Management chief strategist Yang Delong, who said that the government efforts “hit the right spot.” Well, yes, when you threaten to arrest sellers, it does tend to have a short-term effect. The only escalation from there is arresting anyone who doesn’t buy which in turn would promptly lead to this.
Elsehwere in Asia, the Nikkei 225 closed +0.60% after tumbling 3.2% earlier in the day, as the Antichrist Communist Chinese “anti-selling measures” spread and “inspired’ confidence, with the ASX 200 unchanged and weighed by materials as iron fell to a record low. Across the board equities did pull off worst levels as gains in Antichist Communist Chinese stocks sparked an improvement in confidence, which also weighed on JGBs, with losses exacerbated by a weak 30-year JGB auction which drew the lowest b/c since 2004.
The Antichrist Communist Chinese gain promptly rippled through Europe as well, which now appears more focused on Asia than on Greece, and European shares rose most since July 1. Ironically, for all the talk of an imminent deal, overnight none other than famous Grexitologist, Citi’s Willem Buiter allowed us a 2011 deja vu when he joined JPM in saying that Greece’s exit from Eurozone is now the “base case” and most likely outcome, either via short-term exit in next few months or over next 1-3 years.
Curiously the Greek bond market seems to agree as can be seen by the price action in Greek 2 year bonds.
In any event the euphoria over Antichrist Communist Chinese central planners threatening with bodily harm in what is clearly one of the last steps before all control is lost, is enough to offset the unpleasant encroaching of reality. One wonders just what measures the US itself will take when faced with Antichrist Communist China’s bursting-bubble predicament.
For now, however, after US stocks tumbled yesterday just before the NYSE “unexpectedly” closed for nearly 4 hours a day after 70% of Antichrist Communist Chinese stocks were frozen from trading, futures right now are set for a 1% open.
Somehow we doubt the NYSE will break today.

In Part 2, Lord Christopher Moncton and Mark Morano discuss Pope Francis’ embrace of the global warming agenda and his call in Quito for the world’s resources to be owned by all the people in the world. Is Pope Francis a closet Marxist?
A powerful tornado ripped through the Mira community in northeastern Italy, a couple of miles west of Venice, near the Adriatic Sea. Unaccustomed to the phenomenon, the Italians were shocked, disconcerted and alarmed by the event.
A video posted on Facebook by Carlotta Menegazzo shows a classic cone-shaped whirlwind twisting across the town of 40,000 citizens, sucking up everything it can, damaging houses and businesses.
The tornado killed one person by lifting a car off the ground, in which driver died on impact when the vehicle hit the ground, Corriere reported. More than 30 citizens have been injured, among them an eight-year-old girl who survived a lightning strike at her relatives’ home in Carnia.
Severe drought conditions in the capital of Thailand, Bangkok have drained water supplies since June 2015, and the city is now in danger of running out of drinking water in the next 30 days. The reservoirs of tap water are running low, severely affecting the country’s agriculture.
With about 5.2 million cubic meters of drinking water produced per day, Bangkok metropolitan area holds over 14 million people. Most of it’s water supplies come from the Chao Phraya river, which runs into the Gulf of Thailand. During drought conditions, the river is subject to seawater upstream inflow, which can turn the river saline. One of the issues is that the local water company doesn’t have the necessary equipment to purify salty water.
Tropical Storm “Linfa” hit the province of Guangdong, southern Antichrist Communist China bringing heavy rain and winds of up to 126 km/h (78.3 mph) around 03:00 UTC on Thursday, July 9, 2015. Linfa is the first of two large storms forecast to hit China this week. Typhoon “Chan-hom” is expected to hit Fujian or Zhejiang provinces late July 10 or early July 11, 2015.
Further off the coast of Antichrist Communist China is the more powerful Typhoon “Chan-hom” which is forecast to hit Fujian or Zhejiang provinces late Friday, July 10 or early Saturday, July 11, 2015 (UTC).
Chan-hom is already affecting Okinawa, Japan on Thursday, July 9 and will soon bring heavy rain and very strong winds to northern Taiwan too.
Even further to the east, Typhoon “Nanga” is following Chan-hom and is passing north of Guam and Northern Marianas Islands.
As of 06:00 UTC on July 9, Nangka had maximum sustained winds near 231 km/h (144 mph), gusts were up to 277.8 km/h (172 mph). This storm system is expected to further intensify over the next 24 hours on its way toward Iwo To, Japan.
The northern Russian town of Vorkuta, Komi Republic, was blanketed by a heavy midsummer snowfall on July 5, 2015.
Vorkuta has a subarctic climate with short, cool summers accompanied by very cold and dry winters. According to Wikipedia, average February temperature is about −20 °C (−4 °F), and July is about +13 °C (55 °F).
Temperatures dropped to -5 °C on July 5 when an “influx” of Arctic air sent a heavy downfall of snow into the city.
France denied on Wednesday that it was backing away from plans to submit a UN Security Council resolution calling for a Antichrist two-state solution based on the 1967 lines.
The denial followed comments to the contrary by a senior Antichrist Palestinian and a well-connected American Jewish official earlier in the week.
“France has not given up,” a French Ministry spokesman said Wednesday at a daily press briefing. “A Security Council resolution would be useful to give a solid basis to new negotiations.
According to Hoenlein, the French will be reluctant to submit a draft resolution if they feel the US will veto it, or if the Antichrist Palestinians will not be satisfied with a “watered-down” resolution that the Americans might be willing to let pass.
French Foreign Minister ”500 days to avoid climate chaos” Laurent Fabius was in Israel last month and, according to Hoenlein, heard opposition to the plan from both the Israelis and the Antichrist Palestinians.
“I think they [the French] were told by the Antichrist Palestinians, and certainly by Israel, that they’re not interested in it,” he said. “And I think they’re looking for an alternative way to play a key role here.”
He said one alternative vehicle for involvement would be through a reconstructed Quartet, which would include France as well as the US, UN, EU, Russia, and several European and Antichrist Arab states.
“They want to be a player in the Antichrist Middle East,” he said of the French. “Some of this, I guess, is reaction toward America, and some is just their desire for relevance.”
Fabius, during his visit, said that the French plan to move the diplomatic process forward had three components: a return to negotiations, the establishment of an international committee that would “accompany” the sides and help them get over the “final meters of the negotiations,” and a UN Security Council resolution to anchor the process.
‘How can anyone be allowed to paint a swastika on the statue of Marianne, the goddess of French liberty, in the very center of the Place de la République?”
That was what the chairman of one of France’s most celebrated luxury brands was thinking last July, when a tall man in a black shirt and a kaffiyeh leapt to the ledge of Marianne’s pedestal and scrawled a black swastika. All around him, thousands of angry demonstrators were swarming the square with fake rockets, Palestinian and Hamas flags, even the black-and-white banners of Antichrist ISIS. Here, barely a mile and a half from the Galeries Lafayette, the heart of bourgeois Paris, the chants: “MORT AUX JUIFS! MORT AUX JUIFS!” Death to the Jews. It was Saturday, July 26, 2014, and a pro-Palestinian demonstration turned into a day of terror in one of the most fashionable neighborhoods of the city.
^^^Umm, yeah. Duh! Get your dumb dusty Antichrist communist prone homosexual idiot ass home to where our Father in Christ is going to save some of you that shall finally recognize Yahshua is the Messiah, our Messiah. Staying in Damascus, or France etc…, is like having a Greek bank account in July 2015, really really really stupid. Wake up and run home now, it’s time. Listen to your idiot rabbis and moronic Bibi Gun’s call to return. They are not saying anything that isn’t true as far as the prophetic reality to return home now. It is written. SO GO HOME NOW!
Likud Deputy Minister Ayoub Kara, the acting minister of the Regional Cooperation Ministry, spoke with a Syrian Jewish leader who informed him that there has been a sharp drop in the numbers of Jews in two main cities in Syria.
Out of around 140 Jews who lived in Damascus, the capital, and the city of Aleppo, only about 50 remain, the unidentified Jewish leader told Kara on Tuesday.
In Aleppo, there are only eight women and no men.
Kara told The Jerusalem Post in an interview on Wednesday that the Syrian Jews are reticent and scared of speaking freely, adding that he is one of the few people from Israel in touch with them.
The Syrian Jews are interested in speaking with me, a Druse, he said, because they have close relations with the Druse community there, which also is under threat from Antichrist Islamic State and other Islamists.
Most of the Jews in Syria are elderly and so it is difficult for them to flee, he said.
Some Jews have fled Damascus and others have been killed, continued Kara, adding that it was his aim to concentrate on saving the Jews, Druse, Christians and Kurds in Syria.
“Antichrist Islamic State are the new Nazis,” asserted Kara.
The mournful, inspired prediction (a burden to be lifted up) concerning Damascus [capital of Syria, and Israel’s bulwark against Assyria]. Behold, Damascus will cease to be a city and will become a heap of ruins.

Eyewitnesses told the Syrian ARA News, “Those who break Antichrist Muslim Ramadan are being crucified on electricity poles in Deir ez-Zor,” in eastern Syria.
“The roads are filled with crucified men who violated the group’s strict regulations during Antichrist Muslim Ramadan. There are dozens of victims who remain hanged on electricity poles across the province,” they said.
ARA links to a video, published by activists, which purportedly shows people being “crucified alive” in the town of Hajin, a city to the east of Deir ez-Zor, for breaking the Antichrist Muslim Ramadan fast without legitimate reason.
The video shows a man slowly driving his car down a main road while he passes at least nine men and boys tied to electric poles in the median of the street, with their arms stretched out and affixed to a crosspiece. The victims were placed about a block apart from each other, and some of the victims have signs placed around their necks.
According to Syrian activist Saray ad-Din, since the beginning of the Antichrist Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Antichrist ISIS has crucified dozens of civilians on charges of deliberately breaking the fast. This year, Antichrist Ramadan extends from June 17 to July 17.
He said Antichrist ISIS has also established another form of public punishment, placing some violators in public cages so that citizens can witness the ways Antichrist ISIS mocks those who violate its strict religious regulations.
“The group made many cages to lock up these ‘fasting violators’ and show them to public in order to humiliate them among people. The alleged Antichrist caliphate of Antichrist al-Baghdadi has seen various kinds of punishments during Antichrist Muslim Ramadan,” ad-Din said.
In late June, Antichrist ISIS executed and crucified two children in Mayadin on similar charges of having violated the fast.
According to the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, the boys were seized after being found eating and were later killed with placards reading, “Not fasting in Antichrist Ramadan” hung around their necks.
Antichrist Iranian President Hassan Rouhani urged the entire country to “shout its hatred for the Zionists” and back Antichrist Palestinian efforts to seize territory from Israel, according to comments made Wednesday in celebration of Antichrist Quds Day, which marks the last Friday in Antichrist Ramadan and has historically been used to tout Antichrist Palestinian violence against the Antichrist Jewish state.
As Antichrist Iranian and Western negotiators in Vienna meet around the clock in a bid to strike a final nuclear accord, the Antichrist Iranian president expressed his support for the Antichrist Palestinian cause and urged the Antichrist Islamic Republic to unite in its hatred of Israel.
Regardless of whether the world powers and Antichrist Iran sign a nuclear deal by the new Friday deadline, chants of “Death to Israel” are expected to reverberate throughout Antichrist Iran that day as it happens to fall on the anti-Israel Antichrist Quds day.
Antichrist Quds day – initiated in 1979 by the Antichrist Islamic Republic’s founder Antichrist Ayatollah Khomeini – is an annual event of fiery anti-Israel protests in Iran on the last Friday of Antichrist Ramadan that attracts tens of thousands of people.
Antichrist Ayatollah Mohammad Taqi Vaezi, one of some 80 members of Antichrist Iran’s Assembly of Experts that is a supervisory body around Antichrist Iran’s Supreme Leader, was quoted Wednesday as saying that shouting the “Death to the Zionist regime” chant prevents Israeli “aggression.”
The Antichrist Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) ran a story Wednesday quoting him as saying that Antichrist Quds Day is a “universal cry against the Zionists.”
As Antichrist Iran and world powers move toward a possible nuclear deal, Antichrist Saudi Arabia faces drastic geopolitical shifts.
Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has signed a law ratifying a fresh $1 billion credit line from top regional ally Antichrist Iran, Syria’s state news agency SANA said in a newsflash on Wednesday.
The credit line agreement was between two state-owned banks, the Syrian Commercial Bank and Export Development Bank of Antichrist Iran, it said.
SANA reported on Tuesday that the deal was signed on May 19 and approved by the Syrian parliament. The money would be used for funding imports of goods and commodities and implementing projects, it said, without giving details.
An agreement to curb Antichrist Iran’s nuclear program could create a bonanza for U.S. defense contractors who already are benefiting as the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown administration tries to assuage Israeli and Antichrist Gulf Arab concerns by cutting deals for more than $6 billion in military hardware.
The details of a potential deal being negotiated between Iran and six world powers — Antichrist Communist China, France, Germany, Russia, the U.K. and U.S. — would determine what steps the U.S. takes to help its allies. A nuclear agreement is likely to prompt Mideast partners to seek improved defense systems from American contractors such as Boeing Co., Lockheed Martin Corp. and Raytheon Co. as well as weapons-makers in France and elsewhere.
“In theory, an Antichrist Iran deal could lead to a reduction in tensions in the region that would reduce the demand for advanced weaponry,” said William Hartung, director of the Arms and Security Project at the Center for International Policy in Washington. “In the short-term, a deal could actually boost the demand for arms.”
You would be required to get the US State Department’s permission to post technical information about guns online under a new Obozo administration proposed policy, the National Rifle Association is charging.
Much of the information about firearms currently allowed online would be banned under the revision of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or ITAR. The ITAR is designed to keep US military technology out of the hands of potential enemies.
Any “technical data” related to firearms such as a YouTube video or a blog post would need State Department approval under the proposed change, a press release from the NRA’s Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) says.
The proposed revision was published in the June 3 issue of The Federal Register.
“The Obozo State Department has been quietly moving ahead with a proposal that could censor online speech related to firearms,” The NRA-ILA charged.
Those who refuse to go along could face up to 20 years in federal prison and a fine of up to $1 million for violating the Arms Export Control Act, the NRA said.
The US Army is to cut 40,000 soldiers from its ranks over the next two years at home and abroad, a defense official said Tuesday, in a move that will raise doubts about its ability to fight wars.
Under the cost-cutting plan, the Army will be down to 450,000 soldiers at the end of the 2017 budget year, even though in 2013 it argued in budgetary documents that going below 450,000 troops might mean it could not win a war, USA Today said.
Senator Dan Sullivan, a Republican from Alaska, told the paper that the cutback “makes no strategic sense.”
More than a year after Antichrist ISIS fighters overran much of Iraq and Syria, the United States and its allies are struggling to turn the tide against the extremists in an air campaign known as Operation Inherent Resolve.
The Pentagon last month said it was sending 450 additional US troops to act as advisers to help Iraqi forces seize back control of the western city of Ramadi from Antichrist jihadist fighters.
Speaking to reporters after a briefing at the Pentagon on Monday, Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo The 911 Homosexual POTUS Climate Change Clown warned the war “will not be quick. This is a long-term campaign.” <–LMAO. How is this guy still alive? How has his team avoided being disappeared? Oh yeah, they fired everyone that would not kill Americans etc… LMAO. What a joke the military and this government is at this point. Nobody in there right mind would ever follow any order coming from this government at this point, it a pathetic joke.
He added that more needed to be done to train government forces and Antichrist Sunni tribal fighters in Iraq, as well as moderate Syrian rebels. Obozo has been criticized after he admitted he has no strategy to beat Antichrist ISIS.
^^^LMAO. The fact that all of Team Obozo isn’t dead yet, at this point, is confirmation of prophetic judgment. These clowns would not have survived at any point in American history, until now. They murdered Kennedy and every government since has been exponentially worse, and this last round has out done them all. Lol, pathetic.
Jade Helm 15, the controversial Special Operations exercise that spawned a wave of conspiracy theories about a government takeover, will open next week without any media allowed to observe it, a military spokesman said.
The exercise is scheduled for July 15 through September 15 and is expected to include more than 1,200 troops. Army Special Operations Command announced the exercise in March, saying its size and scope would set it apart from most training exercises. For months, some protesters have said Jade Helm is setting the stage for future martial law.
The Washington Post has several times requested access to observe the exercise, making the case to the military that first-hand media coverage would help explain the mission. Lastoria said it is not possible to allow a journalist to travel with Special Operations forces in the field, citing the isolated nature of the mission and the need to protect the identity of the forces involved.
The military has granted access to Special Operations in the past, however.
The media also has been granted access to Special Operations forces overseas for occasional media reports and books, including the 2011 book “The Wrong War,” by Bing West, and the 2013 work “One Hundred Victories,” by Linda Robinson.
On a very strange day that saw the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal all suffering what have been termed ‘technical glitches’ and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and a NYSE spokesman have claimed that cyber-attacks were likely NOT responsible for the mess the day turned into, we have to ask, ARE THEY SERIOUS?
While those were the ‘glitches’ most of America heard of, we also learned of a power outage in DC, a SNAP EBT card snafu and a huge portion of the NY Subway system being shut down in another technical glitch as a Gawker story tells us it’s time to panic – they might not know how right they are as the Washington Post tells us that Jade Helm 15, which begins in 6 days, is off limits to the media. More and more signs warn that JH15 is for what is getting ready now to happen in America. Yesterday was only a small taste of what’s to come.

Well, Spain’s officially a police state now. On July 1st, its much-protested “gag” law went into effect, instantly making criminals of those protesting the new law. Among the many new repressive stipulations is a €30,000-€600,000 fine for “unauthorized protests,” which can be combined for maximum effect with a €600-€300,000 fine for “disrupting public events.”
This horrible set of statutes has arisen from Spain’s position as a flashpoint for anti-austerity protests, the European precursor to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Fines, fines and more fines await anyone who refuses to treat authority with the respect it’s forcibly requiring citizens to show it.
The law also extends its anti-protest punishments to social media, where users can face similar fines for doing nothing more than encouraging or organizing a protest. Failing to present ID when commanded is another fine. And then there’s this:
Showing a “lack of respect” to those in uniform or failing to assist security forces in the prevention of public disturbances could result in an individual fine of between €600 and €30,000.
Spain’s legislators thought of everything. To ensure these crackdowns on protests go off with a minimum of public backlash, “respected” police officers are being given a blank check to use as much force as they feel necessary when breaking up “unauthorized protests.” The law doesn’t directly instruct police to behave badly, but it does provide a very helpful increase in opacity.
A clause in the wide-ranging legislation that critics have dubbed the “gag law” provides for fines of up to 30,000 euros ($33,000) for “unauthorized use” of images of working police that could identify them, endanger their security or hinder them from doing their jobs.
Somehow, the Spanish government has managed to find an expectation of privacy within its public spaces and applied it to its public servants. While the law does make some provision for the public’s “right to know,” it also defers to law enforcement’s judgment when it comes to what is or isn’t “authorized use” of photographs/video depicting police performing their public duties.
Obviously, this small nod towards the public’s rights is completely insincere. The government wants to clamp down on protests and it obviously can’t be embarrassed by award-winning photographs/video of its police officers beating civilians wholly uninvolved with the protests that so angried up the cops’ blood.
Those defending the law (sort of) think the built-in “protections” will at least protect some favored members of the media.
Victora Lerena, president of Spain’s association representing visual journalists, thinks the language about freedom of information will protect journalists, but predicts anyone who tries to take images of police at protests without media organization credentials could be at risk.
This is likely true, considering the “credentialed” press already blurs officers’ faces when reporting. But the most damning images of police misconduct usually come from unofficial sources, and even the most aggressive of mainstream news outlets frequently defer to the government’s judgment when reporting on alleged police abuse.
Spain has outlawed dissent and given the police extra protections and respect they haven’t earned. That’s as close to a police state as you can get without actually declaring martial law.
Within hours after reading the Antichrist Homosexual book to his students, Currie said he got a call from the school’s principal requesting a meeting in her office for the following morning.
The parents of three children soon filed written complaints to a school review committee, which twice upheld the use of the book after heated public meetings.
But the school’s principal also issued a new directive that teachers must submit an advance list of all books they intend to read with students to their parents.
Currie has resigned from Efland-Cheeks Elementary School “because he felt administrators did not support his decision to influence little impressionable children” with Antichrist homosexual propaganda.
Parents felt their children should be learning more important things like math, reading, and writing.
The school’s assistant principal, Meg Goodhand, who lent Currie the copy of the book he read to his class, has also submitted a letter of resignation.
“We will continue to pursue the freedom to practice our beliefs—even as the government seeks to change the terms of our healthcare plans against our will.”
The Becket Fund is a religious liberty law firm which has represented religious nonprofits including Wheaton College in the battle over the contraception mandate in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. The Washington Times reported: Nonprofits are now 0—5 in the circuit courts, depriving them of a coveted win that could force a showdown before the same Supreme Court that sided with family-owned corporations in its “Hobby Lobby” ruling on the mandate, which is an outgrowth of the Affordable Care Act of 2010.
Appellate judges have said the 2014 ruling is of little help to the nonprofits, because the corporate objectors didn’t have the luxury of opting out. Faith-based hospitals, colleges and charities have complained they are still complicit in providing drugs and services they find sinful.
After the Hobby Lobby ruling last year, the Obama administration devised a new solution to address religious objections to contraception among religious charities and nonprofits. Instead of filling out a form that notifies the insurance company of any religious objections, organizations in writing would notify the government of their objections. The government will then notify the insurance company or a third-party administrator to provide contraception coverage, paid for by the federal government.
But that solution remains unacceptable to many religious nonprofits. “It appears to still use their insurance plan,” Emily Hardman of the Becket Fund said. “Their insurance plan is still the mechanism through which this would be happening.”
Passing notification through a different channel doesn’t clear up the problem, she said. “One objection is that you are making me morally complicit in something I can’t do,” Hardman said. “You’re forcing me to outsource a sin, and I can’t do that anymore than I can do it myself.”
Shouldn’t Americans be allowed to live in whatever community they want regardless of their race, and regardless of whatever race predominates in that community?
Obozo says NO.
According to FY 2014 USSC data, of 74,911 sentencing cases, citizens accounted for 43,479 (or 58.0 percent), illegal immigrants accounted for 27,505 (or 36.7 percent), legal immigrants made up 3,017 (or 4.0 percent), and the remainder (about 1 percent) were cases in which the offender was either extradited or had an unknown status.
Broken down by some of the primary offenses, illegal immigrants represented 16.8 percent of drug trafficking cases, 20.0 percent of kidnapping/hostage taking, 74.1 percent of drug possession, 12.3 percent of money laundering, and 12.0 percent of murder convictions.
One GOP aide expressed shock at the numbers, emailing Breitbart News, “These statistics blew me away, and they blow a hole through the oft-repeated line that people only want to come to America to work. It’s tragic so few politicians are willing even to acknowledge the true extent of this problem, but until more do, more Americans will keep getting harmed.”
The USSC data only deals with federal offenders sentenced under the Sentencing Reform Act of 1984 (SRA) and does not include other categories like state cases, death penalty cases, or “cases initiated but for which no convictions were obtained, offenders convicted for whom no sentences were yet issued, and offenders sentenced but for whom no sentencing documents were submitted to the Commission.”
The data does include immigration violations, of which illegal immigrants represented by far the greatest number of cases: 91.6 percent, or (20,333 cases), out of a total 22,204 cases.
Eliminating all immigration violations, illegal immigrants would account for 13.6 percent of all the offenders sentenced in FY14 following federal criminal convictions — still greater than the 3.5 percent of the population illegal immigrants are said to make up.
A federal judge in Texas has threatened to hold Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and other top immigration enforcement officials in contempt of court for not fixing problems that led to work permits being mistakenly awarded under Antichrist NWO 666 President Barack Obozo The 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown’s executive immigration action after the judge had put the plan on hold.
The Justice Department had said about 2,000 individuals had been sent three-year work authorizations after U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen in Brownsville, Texas, temporarily blocked the immigration action on Feb. 16.
In a court order Tuesday, Hanen said government officials have yet to fix the problem. The judge also requested Johnson and four other officials attend an Aug. 19 hearing to explain why the issue hasn’t been fixed and to “be prepared to show why he or she should not be held in contempt of court.”
Obozo proposed in November expanding a program that protects young immigrants from deportation if they were brought to the U.S. illegally as children and adding another that extends deportation protections to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have been in the country for some years.
He said lack of action by Congress forced him to make sweeping changes to immigration rules on his own, but Republicans said Obozo overstepped his authority.
The judge had issued the injunction at the request of a coalition of 26 states, led by Texas, which have filed a lawsuit to stop Obozo’s action, saying it is unconstitutional. An appeal of Hanen’s ruling is set to be argued Friday before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
Hanen has previously criticized the federal government’s actions in the lawsuit, saying the government had been “misleading” after officials revealed that more than 108,000 people had already received three-year reprieves from deportation as well as work permits when the judge had believed that no action would be taken before he issued a ruling on the injunction.
Justice Department attorneys apologized for any confusion regarding the 108,000 reprieves but insisted they were granted under a 2012 program that wasn’t affected by the injunction.
Along with Texas, the states seeking to block Obama’s action are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
On Monday, illegal alien Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender who had been deported five times, was charged with killing Kathryn Steinle, 32, at Pier 14 in the “sanctuary city” of San Francisco. The details surrounding this case are a testament to the multi-layered bankruptcy of progressive ideology.
We begin with the contemptible notion of a sanctuary city itself. Despite the passage of the Illegal Immigration Reform and Responsibility Act of 1996 requiring cities to cooperate with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE), there are literally hundreds of cities in the nation that provide safe haven for illegal aliens in open defiance of federal law. Yet, because that law conflicts with progressive sensibilities, not a single lawsuit has ever been filed by the federal government against a sanctuary city for violating it. In a revealing contrast, the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown administration has filed suit against states such as Arizona, Alabama and South Carolina that were attempting to enforce federal immigration law.
The decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America to change the definition of marriage is grievous. There is a saying, “When America sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold.” As a religious leader in Uganda, I want to assure all Ugandans that we will do everything we can to promote the good moral health of our people and resist such immoral viruses that may try to infiltrate our people.
Likewise, the most recent decision of the Episcopal Church USA (TEC) to change the definition of marriage is even more grievous. At best, it sprang from a desire to extend pastoral care to members of its church who experience same-sex attraction. Pastoral care, however, that is contrary to the Bible’s message is, ultimately, cruel and misleading.
We have explained on a number of occasions how the Federal Reserves’ agents, the bullion banks (principally JPMorganChase, HSBC, and Scotia) sell uncovered shorts (“naked shorts”) on the Comex (gold futures market) in order to drive down an otherwise rising price of gold. By dumping so many uncovered short contracts into the futures market, an artificial increase in “paper gold” is created, and this increase in supply drives down the price.
This manipulation works because the hedge funds, the main purchasers of the short contracts, do not intend to take delivery of the gold represented by the contracts, settling instead in cash. This means that the banks who sold the uncovered contracts are never at risk from their inability to cover contracts in gold. At any given time, the amount of gold represented by the paper gold contracts (“open interest’) can exceed the actual amount of physical gold available for delivery, a situation that does not occur in other futures markets.
In other words, the gold and silver futures markets are not a place where people buy and sell gold and silver. These markets are places where people speculate on price direction and where hedge funds use gold futures to hedge other bets according to the various mathematical formulas that they use. The fact that bullion prices are determined in this paper, speculative market, and not in real physical markets where people sell and acquire physical bullion, is the reason the bullion banks can drive down the price of gold and silver even though the demand for the physical metal is rising.
last Tuesday the US Mint announced that it was sold out of the American Eagle one ounce silver coin. It is a contradiction of the law of supply and demand that demand is high, supply is low, and the price is falling. Such an economic anomaly can only be explained by manipulation of prices in a market where supply can be created by printing paper contracts.
Obviously fraud and price manipulation is at work, but no heads roll. The Federal Reserve and US Treasury support this fraud and manipulation, because the suppression of precious metal prices protects the value and status of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency and prevents gold and silver from fulfilling their role as the transmission mechanism that warns of developing financial and economic troubles. The suppression of the rising gold price suppresses the warning signal and permits the continuation of financial market bubbles and Washington’s ability to impose sanctions on other world powers that are disadvantaged by not being a reserve currency.
It has come to our attention that over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives also play a role in price suppression and simultaneously serve to provide long positions for the bullion banks that disguise their manipulation of prices in the futures market.
OTC derivatives are privately structured contracts created by the secretive large banks. They are a paper, or derivative, form of an underlying financial instrument or commodity. Little is known about them. Brooksley Born, the head of the Commodity Futures Trading Corporation (CFTC) during the Clinton regime said, correctly, that the derivatives needed to be regulated. However, Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, Treasury Secretary and Deputy Secretary Robert Rubin and Lawrence Summers, and Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) chairman Arthur Levitt, all de facto agents of the big banks, convinced Congress to prevent the CFTC from regulating OTC derivatives.
The absence of regulation means that information is not available that would indicate the purposes for which the banks use these derivatives. When JPMorgan was investigated for its short silver position on Comex, the bank convinced the CFTC that its short position on Comex was a hedge against a long position via OTC derivatives. In other words, JPMorgan used its OTC derivatives to shield its attack on the silver price in the futures market.
During 2015 the attack on bullion prices has intensified, driving the prices lower than they have been for years. During the first quarter of this year there was a huge upward spike in the quantity of precious metal derivatives.
If these were long positions hedging the banks’ Comex shorts, why did the price of gold and silver decline?
More evidence of manipulation comes from the continuing fall in the prices of gold and silver as set in paper future markets, although demand for the physical metals continues to rise even to the point that the US Mint has run out of silver coins to sell. Uncertainties arising from the Greek No vote increase systemic uncertainty. The normal response would be rising, not falling, bullion prices.
The circumstantial evidence is that the unregulated OTC derivatives in gold and silver are not really hedges to short positions in Comex but are themselves structured as an additional attack on precious metal prices.
If this supposition is correct, it indicates that seven years of bailing out the big banks that control the Federal Reserve and US Treasury at the expense of the US economy has threatened the US dollar to the extent that the dollar must be protected at all cost, including US regulatory tolerance of illegal activity to suppress gold and silver prices.
Janet Yellen’s reputed favorite jobs measure, the JOLTS (Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey) reported blockbuster record job openings in May. But look beneath the headlines and you will see just how distorted and maladjusted the US job market is.
Wall Street economic shills and Fed propagandists have recently been claiming that a tightening job market is driving faster wage growth. With apologies to Elvis, we’ve already established that that was just a lie. The rising wage story doesn’t hunt. It ain’t nothin’ but a hound dog.
The jobs that employers are offering are increasingly not jobs that workers can or will fill. Workers either do not have the needed skills, or they refuse to work for the slave wages many US employers are offering. Whatever the cause, the imbalances are clear and they are growing, with no rectification of the problem in sight.
These four charts illustrate.
Job openings have soared to record highs, beyond even the housing bubble peak as the massive and growing ZIRP/QE driven credit bubble drives demand for rocket scientist financial engineers on the one hand, and low paid, low skilled worker drones servicing the financial engineering bubble nouveau riche of the on the other.
The fact that job openings are rising faster than hires, and wage growth is simultaneously falling, is evidence of the growing mismatch between the jobs being offered and the ability and willingness of the labor force to fill them. The US economy is growing ever more distorted and maladjusted.
These trends began with the institution of ZIRP and QE. The irrational investment incentives those policies promote may or may not be the direct cause of the growing divergence between job openings and hires, but they have certainly contributed to the negative trends. Whether any future policy can reverse or even ameliorate these trends, remains to be seen. The current path is a sobering, if not frightening one, and the track record of Fed and government policy makers to this point does not inspire confidence in the future.
It’s called Central Planning for a reason – crucially every attempt was made to keep S&P above 2055.93 (200DMA) and Dow above 17695 (200DMA) – IT FAILED!!!
Then I saw as the Lamb broke open one of the seven seals, and as if in a voice of thunder I heard one of the four living creatures call out, Come! 2 And I looked, and saw there a white horse whose rider carried a bow. And a crown was given him, and he rode forth conquering and to conquer. 3 And when He broke the second seal, I heard the second living creature call out, Come! 4 And another horse came out, flaming red. And its rider was empowered to take the peace from the earth, so that men slaughtered one another; and he was given a huge sword.
5 When He broke open the third seal, I heard the third living creature call out, Come and look! And I saw, and behold, a black horse, and in his hand the rider had a pair of scales (a balance). 6 And I heard what seemed to be a voice from the midst of the four living creatures, saying, A quart of wheat for a denarius [a whole day’s wages], and three quarts of barley for a denarius; but do not harm the oil and the wine!
7 When the Lamb broke open the fourth seal, I heard the fourth living creature call out, Come!
8 So I looked, and behold, an ashy pale horse [[a]black and blue as if made so by bruising], and its rider’s name was Death, and Hades (the realm of the dead) followed him closely. And they were given authority and power over a fourth part of the earth to kill with the sword and with famine and with plague (pestilence, disease) and with wild beasts of the earth.
9 When the Lamb broke open the fifth seal, I saw at the foot of the altar the souls of those whose lives had been sacrificed for [adhering to] the Word of God and for the testimony they had borne. 10 They cried in a loud voice, O [Sovereign] Lord, holy and true, how long now before You will sit in judgment and avenge our blood upon those who dwell on the earth? 11 Then they were each given a [b]long and flowing and festive white robe and told to rest and wait patiently a little while longer, until the number should be complete of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed as they themselves had been.
12 When He [the Lamb] broke open the sixth seal, I looked, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun grew black as sackcloth of hair, [the full disc of] the moon became like blood. 13 And the stars of the sky dropped to the earth like a fig tree shedding its unripe fruit out of season when shaken by a strong wind. 14 And the [c]sky rolled up like a scroll and vanished, and every mountain and island was dislodged from its place.
15 Then the kings of the earth and their noblemen and their magnates and their military chiefs and the wealthy and the strong and [everyone, whether] slave or free hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains, 16 And they called to the mountains and the rocks, Fall on (before) us and hide us from the face of Him Who sits on the throne and from the [d]deep-seated indignation and wrath of the Lamb.
17 For the great day of His wrath (vengeance, retribution, indignation) has come, and who is able to stand before it?
