It’s Christmas Eve Eve. You would think that evil would have some holiday spirit and take a break. But no, evil is hard at work as you make last minute gift choices.
We’ve had a profoundly disturbing vision from teenager. Fake News is still in ‘The News’. There is yet more evidence that Peak Oil really has peaked. India is crashing and burning in truly spectacular fashion. Russia rises in power. #Pizzagate revelations just keep coming. The Trumpageddon apocalypse keeps rolling on. Italian banks threaten the world. Muslims continue to rampage in their attempt to set the world on fire. Russia, Syria and Iran are winning.
That’s a lot of OUCH.

No Break For Christmas!
What perilous times that we live in. I am truly amazed at everything that is happening. It kinda makes it hard to get into the ‘Christmas spirit’.
No, no, I don’t believe that Jesus was born on December 25th. It would have been earlier, somewhat after the summer harvest and before the winter planting season. The Romans weren’t stupid, and would NOT have wanted to disrupt their own food supply. But, people like to celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th, so that’s when we do it.
Those of us living in Asia don’t see much ‘Christmas spirit’ other than a few store displays. Asians don’t know what to do with Christmas, but they like consumerism and LOVE tinsel. And, they think that big white guy in his magic sleigh is pretty cool.
However, it DOES give us a chance to share the true meaning of Christ’s birth. Churches throughout Asia will be holding Christmas eve services, and will be inviting neighbors and students to join them as they put on plays celebrating the lowly birth of our Lord and Savior, in a manger in Bethlehem.
For most of my time in Israel, I lived an hour’s walk from that place, so I know a bit about what it might have been like. But, only a bit. The Muslims have pushed the Christians out of Bethlehem and now outnumber them, more than five to one. Bethlehem would be unrecognizable to Mary and Joseph, if they venture into that seething cauldron of anger and resentment.
But, there is one thing that they WOULD have noticed:
Just as Rome dominated the world, so does Amerika. Rome used ‘Divide et Impera‘ (pronounced Deh-Vi-Day Et Im-Peh-Rah) to conquer the world, and the United States uses the same tactics. After all, there’s no need to fix what already works.
I’ve always found it ironic that America has borrowed so much from our Roman ancestors. The legal system. The political system. The medical system. The science. Even the architecture is Roman. Walk around Washington D.C. sometime. Rome is everywhere.
And, America appears set to trace the path of Rome’s fall.
And no, don’t ask me to see it in any different way. We Americans have chosen the path of insanity, and there’s nothing that Donald Trump can do to stop it. The best that we can expect is a delay. If that is even possible. And, I doubt that even a delay is possible.
There are just too many external actors making insane decisions that are pushing all of us over the cliff. The recent decision by Narendra Modi, to destroy India’s monetary system, during the planting season, is so bizarre, I just don’t have the words to express it properly. Angela Merkel (pronounced An-GEH-Lah MER-Kul) appears to be able to get reelected, even though she has single-handedly destroyed Germany and the EU. And, let’s not forget that the Italian banks are about to finish the job and send the world reeling into financial catastrophe.
I’m afraid that President Trump has inherited a poison chalice. All the financial troubles poised to pounce in 2017 will be laid at his feet, just as they did with Hoover in the 1930s. Hoover didn’t create the mess, but they certainly blamed him for it. And, FDR rode in on that blame.
Next week, I hope to give you my view of what might happen in 2017. I doubt that my timing will be correct, and I certainly hope that it isn’t. But, the events rolling down upon us are certain.
Please feel free to leave your own predictions for 2017 in the comment section, below.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
