As I crawl out from under the after-effects of an awful case of influenza, I continue to marvel at how the world continues to fall apart. For most of us, a bad case of the flu is temporary, but the world has cancer. And, it’s terminal.
What will it take for people to shake free of their deadly illusions about our cancerous world?
We can see yet another war rushing towards us, and our friends and neighbors are completely oblivious to what is coming. And, should America avoid a shooting-war with Russia, we still face a financial collapse that threatens to destroy our technocratic civilization.
How very insane, it all is.

The World Falls Apart – But, I Feel Fine
I ventured out of the house on Saturday for the first time in what seemed like weeks. Our church here in Israel is Jerusalem Assembly, and it meets on Saturday mornings. So, I tottered forth, even though I wasn’t sure that I was physically ready.
Missing church leaves a week-long hole in my life that is hard to live with. And frankly, there are few churches as wonderful as Kehilat Yerushalayim Beit Ge’ula – the official name for Jerusalem Assembly.
For those of you interested in learning more about the church that I consider home, go here:
And, if you are a Hebrew speaker:
Of course, you didn’t come here to read the praises of my favorite church.
So, why am I raising this issue?
The Arab Bus Home
Well, on the way home, we took the bus – which is something of a challenge, because buses don’t run on Shabbat – aka, Saturday.
So, how did my wife and I take the bus home?
We used the Arab bus service that serves the Arab communities of Jerusalem. And, it started a train of thought that I wanted to share with you.
Israeli Arab Prosperity Is Amazing
I’ve spent a lot of time in Muslim countries like Turkey, Jordan and even Egypt. I’ve spent time running around the West Bank and Israeli Arab towns and villages. And, there is one thing that has become wonderfully clear to me:
Israeli Arabs are amazingly prosperous
Of all the Arabs in the world, there is no group of Arabs that are more prosperous than the Israeli Arabs. I’m not even sure that the average Arab in the Persian Gulf is as healthy, wealthy and educated as the average Israeli Arab.
Even Palestinians Are Amazingly Prosperous
And, second to the Israeli Arab, is the Palestinian Arab.
The Palestinians of the West Bank are four times more prosperous than the Arabs of Jordan. In fact, they are better educated and have better living conditions than any other group of Arabs, except for the Israeli Arabs.
Because Of Zionism
Because of the Zionist Jews.
The Zionists came in and took a malaria-ridden cesspool – in which nine out of ten Arab children died – and turned it into a paradise that produces the most prosperous Arab communities in the world.
Yet, most Arabs cannot let go of their hatred of Israel.
This could have been the most fantastic place on Earth, if the Arabs had been willing to welcome the Jews and work with them – instead of against them.
Why have the Arabs been unable to welcome their ancient cousins, the Jews?
Because Of Islam – The Death Cult
Their belief in the religion of death – Islam. When Muhammad created his death cult, his symbol was the sword, and his mantra was the massacre. And, under Islam, the only sure way to heaven, is to die – fighting for Islam.
Let me repeat that.
The only sure way into heaven, for you and your family, is to die as you try to kill others – for Islam.
Now, do you know why the family of a suicide bomber celebrates?
Well, actually, you don’t, because I haven’t told you the rest of the story.
The family of a suicide bomber celebrates, because they know that they too will go to heaven, because that suicide bomber will get to choose 72 others to join him in heaven.
(And yes, that is in addition to the 72 virgins
the suicide bomber gets.)
No Forgiveness In Islam – Unless You Kill
Outside of the above, a Muslim cannot be certain that he will get into heaven. If your ‘good works’ don’t outweigh your sins, you go to Hell – no matter how many times you prayed every day.
Worse, if you led a sinful life before you converted to Islam, you are in serious trouble, because you may not have enough time, to do enough good – to outweigh the sins of your previous life.
To put it another way:
There is no forgiveness in Islam, unless you are willing to kill – and die, in the process of trying to kill.
The Death-Cult Vs. A Cult Of Life And Peace
Now, put such a death-cult alongside a group of people who uphold life and peace as the highest good – like… oh …the Jews.
Do you think that such a situation will end well?
Of course not. A death-cult will ALWAYS destroy any culture that values peace. And, as long as Islam holds sway in the hearts of Arabs, there will be no peace in the Middle East.
I Love The Arab People, Anyway
And, don’t think that I have anything against the Arab people. I love the Arabs, and that love motivates my desire to free this people from their bondage to death. They worship death, and it’s killing them.
And, it makes me sick to see such an awful situation.
Jesus Christ Is The Only Answer
The only way that the Arabs will ever be free from this terrible bondage, is through Jesus Christ. Only through Him, can ANYONE ever be free.
This goes for the bondage that the Elites are attempting to enslave us with. They cannot harm the children of God, without permission from God.
(And yes, God DOES give such permission.)
V15 And The US State Department
One bit of harm comes in the form of a campaign by a group called V15 – or, Victory 2015. This group is made up of – and supported by – some of the same people that handed Barack Obama his two election victories.
And yes, they are funded directly by the US State Department.
They’ve set up shop in Tel Aviv, and their goal is to defeat Netanyahu in the Israeli elections next month, in March.
What an incredibly underhanded foreign policy by Obama. Of course, this is the same guy that brought us the overthrow of the government of the Ukraine, so this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise.

Obama Gives Iran 80%
And, let’s stay with Obama, because we have reports that our ‘Dear Leader’ has agreed to 80% of Iran’s demands in the P5+1 negotiations over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.
So, when Iran eventually reveals the fact that she has nuclear weapons, you can send your ‘Thank You’ cards to Barry Soetoro – also known as, Barack Hussein Obama.
Obama Unites Russia And China
Unfortunately, the only other figures that effectively stand against the insanity of our ‘Dear Leader’… are people like …Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. The idea that those brutal thugs are the only effective alternative to US government insanity… is …insane.
In fact, it was Barack Hussein Obama who drew those two thugs into a relationship that they weren’t sure that they wanted. But, after the foolishness started by the US in Kiev, Russia quickly caved-in to China’s demands and agreed to the pipeline deal and much closer ties than they were initially ready for.
So, we have Obama to thank for the fact that America’s enemies have grown stronger and more belligerent.
I really am amazed by this war with Russia – a war that now includes China. It is such a fantastically stupid idea, that I can hardly contain myself.
No Explanation For Our Meddling In The Ukraine
The US State Department can’t even tell us why we should be giving weapons and support to the thugs in Kiev, and I find that to be amazing all by itself.
Here’s a great article by Chris Martenson on the subject:
His article can be summarized by Martenson’s first line:
But nobody has explained what our vital interest is in Ukraine
Seriously folks, they want a war with Russia, and they can’t explain why.
Dmitry Draws A Red Line
But, their inability to explain their reasons will not keep the CIA and US State Department from moving forward. But, just in case the fools in Washington D.C. didn’t get the message, Dmitry Medvedev drew a red line and explained what that ‘red line’ was.
He was talking about Washington’s threat to cut Russia off from the SWIFT system for international banking transactions. And, in response to the threat, he said:
We’ll watch developments and if such decisions are made, I want to note that our economic reaction and generally any other reaction will be without limits
When a nuclear power with the will and means to destroy you says that, you should tread carefully.
But, they won’t.
Because they WANT a war.

Enter The Dragon
And, let’s not forget that China is involved.
Bill Gertz reported on a recent book by Michael Pillsbury that is eye-opening reading – especially for those of us who live close to the Middle Kingdom. I’ve reported on the fact that China isn’t the benign dragon that she appears to be, so this article may be an unwelcome bit of confirmation for some of you. Read more on that here:
Europe Faces Collapse
Being in Israel makes me physically closer to Europe, than when I am in Taiwan – but, it doesn’t really change the view. Europe is on its way to collapse, and I cannot imagine any way that they will be able to avoid what is coming.
The countries of northern Europe did NOT want to ‘bite the bullet’ and pay the price for a true unification of Europe. So, instead of paying the price at the beginning, they’ll pay the price at the end – and still fail.
What a mess.
Already, we are seeing Italy, Spain and Portugal waiting in anticipation for the results of the Greek attempt at renegotiating Greek debt. If the European Union caves in – in any way – it will be game over for the EU, because Italy, Spain and Portugal will want the same deal.
Russia Edges In
But, if the EU DOESN’T give Greece a better deal, the Greeks will fall into the loving arms of Russia and the EEU – or, the Eurasian Economic Union. Russia wants to expand the EEU, and any expansion of such an entity is a big step towards Gog and Magog.
I don’t know about you, but I’d like to hold off on Gog and Magog for as long as possible. Of course, God didn’t ask my opinion on this, so it will happen when it happens. But, we are seeing signs that this alliance is building.
Don’t Forget Ezekiel’s Fire – I HAVEN’T
As a reminder, Ezekiel’s Fire comes at the same time as Gog and Magog, and you’ll want to read more about that, here:
I continue to make progress on that site and have 90% of the information content up. What’s left is editing, formatting and illustration.

To wind out my reporting for the past few days, here are some interesting bits of news.
Greek Government May Be Assassinated?
I just saw this on Steve Quayle’s website. Paul Craig Roberts has raised the possibility that the Greek government could be murdered en masse. It has happened before, and it will happen again. The question is whether it will happen to the Greek government – to protect the EU, and the wealth of the European elites.
I disagree with Dr. Roberts on many issues, but I believe that he raises an interesting possibility that we should pay attention to. You can read what he says, here:
The Baltic Dry Index – This Is Bad!
My wife is an expert in logistics, so that might be one of the reasons why I pay such close attention to the Baltic Dry Index. It is a key economic indicator, and it tracks the cost of shipping bulk commodities by sea.
When economies stop ordering and shipping commodities like iron and coal, you know that there is going to be a global collapse. Worse, the Baltic Dry Index is NOT adjusted for inflation. But, that’s not the really bad part.
The Baltic Dry Index has collapsed by more than 60% in the last three months. And, THAT should terrify those of you who are betting that the economy is going to improve.
Here is a very short video that you MUST watch:

Please prepare for economic disaster.
This is bad …and headed towards worse!
Historically, however, the King under common law HAD NO RIGHT to tax the people. He would have to summon Parliament to ask for its consent on behalf pf the people to levy taxes. Taxes were allowed ONLY to defend the nation in times of war. This naturally created the incentive for war.
I made that last sentence bold because it is a great statement on why governments seek to go to war.
It’s all about money and power.
Anyone who says otherwise is either lying, or a fool.
Armstrong is an exceptionally clear thinker on economics and cycles, and I pay exceptionally close attention to what he says. I’m not sure that I agree with everything that he says, since he seems to minimize the idea of a Luciferian conspiracy and does not appear to be a Christian.
His faith in the system is far greater than my own, which is why I still advocate the ownership of tangible assets, like silver and gold. If you think that Martin’s approach is better than my own, please feel free to follow what he says. Just be careful.
Whatever your views, here are a couple of articles that you should pay extra attention to:
Let me end with yet another exceptional article from Dave Hodges:
The meat of the article is his discussion of ‘groupthink’, and he is eminently qualified to talk about it. He makes an interesting case for the idea that when the ‘groupthink’ imposed upon us by the elites… fails …those very same elites will try to destroy us.
So, even as we do our best to throw off the ‘groupthink’ of those around us, our success might tip us into the very thing that we seek to avoid.
But, as Dave indicates in his article, we must forge ahead, anyway.
May the Lord God guide you and keep you in the dark days ahead.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
