Pornography warps and twists the minds of everyone that it touches. It degrades relationships. It damages marriages. It ruins our ethics and morals. It unravels the bonds that bind our society together. And, the Internet has made the foulest kinds of pornography available to the whole world.
Worse, we have become so desensitized to the evil of pornography that it is no longer considered evil, filthy and shameful. Yes, shame. We’ve lost a sense of that. We don’t even know what it is, anymore.
In short, pornography destroyed us, and it’s killing you.

ShockCast Shorts from Previous Week
These are short, individual segments from the previous ShockCast, on YouTube. And, they are a great for sharing with others – or watching for yourself.
I had a ringside seat for the growth of the Internet. I had one of the first PCs ever produced. My first job out of college was helping companies set up networks so that they could operate more quickly and efficiently. When I was in finance, I made my biggest call to buy Apple stock in 1996, when the news came out that Steve Jobs was coming back to Apple.
The partners in the investment firm didn’t listen, and they aren’t in business anymore.
And, when the Internet came into being, we all wanted to be on it. We all wanted to reach out and touch the other side of the world. To this day, I still remember that fantastic moment when I connected to a computer in Japan, for the first time.
It might sound like old hat to you, but you weren’t in the midst of the fantastic growth of the computer industry, where we just had rudimentary hardware and dreams of what-might-be. Even science fiction books written in those early days were not able to foresee what we have today.
Nor, did we understand, in those early days, what the driving force of the Internet would be. There were a lot of attempts at making money on the Internet, but it’s first and primary purpose was the free exchange of information and ideas. And, when connection speeds increased, we were able to exchange pictures and then… videos.
The Driver Of The Internet
Do you know the industry that was the first to make money on the Internet?
That’s right. Pornography.
And, it’s also the number one reason why your Internet connection is so fast. There was an insatiable demand for pornography, and it was hard for the Internet to keep up. In fact, one of the reasons why some Internet services would block pornography was because it would take up so much bandwidth. If they didn’t, nothing else would get through. But, the Internet has gotten so fast that we don’t worry about such things anymore.
In fact, the Internet is so fast and cheap that you can get the hardest of hardcore pornography, for free. And, I am truly amazed at how awful it has become.
Then And Now
When I was a kid, pornography came via a magazine carefully concealed in brown paper. When video tape came along, you had to go to the bad part of town to get your X-rated movies. Even X-rated DVDs weren’t so easy to get.
Then porn hit the Internet. And, all that you needed to do was claim that you were 18 or older, and you could watch as much of it as you wanted. And, it is one of – if not the – leading cause of sexual corruption in America.
The Destruction It Has Wrought
When I left the United States as a painfully single young man, in 1992, the question on every young man’s mind was…
Do you kiss on the first date?
When God dragged me back from Israel, 14 years later, that wasn’t the question anymore.
And, by leaps and bounds, pornography has leapt across the globe. It went from being a Western phenomenon to being truly world wide. It was everywhere, so much so that the number one reason why I have an ad blocker, is to stop from being assaulted by pornographic advertisements.
The majority of those who research finance and geopolitics are male. And, porn producers know that every guy is vulnerable to porn. So, to stop having female anatomy being waved in my face, I had to set up the best ad blocker that I could find. And, right now, that’s uBlock Origin. And, I get nothing from them for saying that.
And, for a while, lots of social media sites were permissive about porn. But, when pedophiles started uploading child porn, social media had to stop being permissive.
Tumblr did that, and their traffic fell by 30%. Think about that. A social media site that had 30% of their users coming for just porn. For just pornography. What a horrible reflection upon our society. And, when I saw that, I got upset and went looking for more statistics on pornography.
Porn Statistics From Pornhub
Right off the top, you don’t even need to look up any statistics to know that almost all of those who stopped going to Tumblr were men. Well, mostly men, since Pornhub reports that 29% of their viewership is now female. Worse, Pornhub is proud of the fact that this 29% figure is a big three percent increase over the past year – worldwide.
When I went to find statistics on pornography, I realized that no one does better stats than Pornhub. They are PROUD of the amount of pornography that they churn out. In fact, they are so proud of themselves that they boast of having 115 years-worth of pornography video.
You can spend one hundred and fifteen years watching pornography on their site and not repeat one video.
They are getting 92 MILLION visits a day. And, the data bandwidth that they are consuming – every day – is more than the bandwidth of the entire Internet in 2002. And, every minute about 64 thousand new visitors are being newly corrupted EVERY DAY.
AND, since they are business-minded, Pornhub also added a ‘social network’ element where shameless users can communicate with each other. Oh, and if you want to know a big reason why that moron porn star ‘Stormy Daniels’ went public…
SHE’S THE NUMBER ONE SEARCH ON PORNHUB!
That stupid woman is making money by all the publicity that she’s getting.
Oh, and who has the most horrendously huge traffic on pornhub?
Can you guess?
Yes, you guessed it.
Americans watch as much porn as the next three largest consumers of porn on Pornhub, combined – UK, India and Japan, with room left over for some of Canada, who is in fifth place. And, India has REALLY jumped on the porn ‘bandwagon’. In the 18-24 age demographic, India is DOUBLE – in percentage terms – almost anyone else. And the 25-34 demographic is also huge in India.
This means that India is being corrupted by pornography at a highly accelerated rate. And, it’s all because of America.
And, the Philippines… they are accelerating up the rankings in porn viewership – up three places, just from last year. This breaks my heart, since the Filipino people are some of the nicest on the planet. Yet, they are being destroyed.
Oh, and now that Syria is coming out of her civil war, she has rocketed into Pornhub’s statistics.
But still, only 20 countries represent 80% of daily traffic on pornhub.
Again, with America at the top.
Now, I started out talking about the advent of computers and how computers were connecting to the Internet. What I didn’t get into was the smartphone. And, most people are watching all this pornography on their smartphones.
The bottom line?
The Internet is the worst thing that has ever happened to us. To the world.
This is horrifying.
But, this is just ‘Pornhub’. I haven’t even touched the other statistics that I’ve found. And no, I will NOT give a link to the statistics page of Pornhub. Thankfully, I didn’t need to touch any other part of that site, than their stats page. Not even their home page.
But, just combing through their statistics was revolting. They’re so proud of what they’ve accomplished, they are positively crowing about how much pornography they have inflicted upon us, as well as where it’s coming from and who is viewing it. They LOVE talking about what kind of pornography appeals to which kind of person. They are wallowing their utter depravity.
How wretched and evil must you be to joyfully proclaim all of this?
If you want to know one of the big reasons why God must destroy America, this is one of them. All of that porn is based in America. More than 90% of worldwide pornography comes from America.
I’m afraid that there is a lot more to talk about on this subject, but I must stop here. But, before I do, let me show you a heartbreaking video that I stumbled across:
YouTube shortlink: https://youtu.be/A4yYJDiuqSI
That child has been horribly damaged. And, we did this. We Americans. We allowed it. We gave it money. We fed the flames. And, this evil reaches into every home around the world.
Only those too poor to have an Internet connection are free.
It’s free, and it may just save your life.

THIS WEEK’S RESEARCH
My research sources are pretty wide ranging, and their number keep growing. So, instead of listing all of my sources, let me list the ones that deserve special mention:
A big thank you to all who sent me articles. I appreciate all of it.
IF YOU READ NOTHING ELSE…
Yup, more than just special, these links appear to be the most important of all. Seriously, start with these.
And yes, these are pretty serious.
Oh wow. This is so bad that you might not believe this unless you see it for yourself.
A number of you are Australians, and you know about Jim Jefferies. What you might not know is how utterly evil he is. He is a cunning liar and deceiver, and he did his very best to destroy Avi Yemini. But, Avi was wise to his lies, and turned the tables on him.
Well done, Avi!
This shows what Jim Jefferies is REALLY like – when he doesn’t know that he’s being filmed. He mocks Muhammad. He mocks Islam in some of the most grotesque ways. In ways that I would never, EVER dream of doing.
But, the worst of it, is that he takes clips of his victim… er …guest – answering one question. And then, he splices that answer into another part of the interview, to make it look like his victim is answering a different question in the most horrible and awful way possible.
If you watched his interview of Avi Yemini on Jim Jefferies’ show, you would think that Avi was the most grotesque and evil man alive, all because of the clever editing that Jim Jefferies did. It was a complete hit job. It was pure character assassination.
That is Jim Jefferies.
But, from my own personal experience, in the Middle East, with journalists, it is also modern day journalism. You just do not know how foul and evil journalism has become, when it is directed at destroying those who are good. It is truly beyond most people’s wildest imaginations. But, this is what journalists do these days. They lie and lie and lie and lie and lie some more. One newspaper reporter even did it to me, back in the US. Thirty years ago.
Not all journalists are scum, but the ones at the top are. They are the most foul and evil minions of Satan because they are playing with your minds. They are playing with your beliefs. They are warping your perception of reality, to coincide with their own. They are diabolical, fiends from Hell. And, they’ve sold their soul for a byline and 15 minutes of fame.
And Jim Jefferies, wherever you are, you are condemned by God to everlasting torment in Hell, if you do not repent, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and seek to undo ALL – and yes that means A-L-L – of the evil that you have done.
Jim Jeffries, you are destined for Hell. You and all the foul minions of Satan that you work with. And, I am amazed at such blatant and appalling evil. How utterly diabolical.
Well done, Avi Yemini.
Kol haKavod Achi!!
Nancy ‘The Moron’ Pelosi decided that lowering the voting age to STUPID is a good idea.
The responses to this insane idea are – in some cases – amusing. In others… horrifying.
I was an idiot, when I was 16. I was still pretty stupid at 18. Voting should not be allowed for those under the age of 25.
This ‘new’ Fox has PAUL RYAN ON ITS BOARD?!?!?!
Paul Ryan was a horribly corrupt politician, and they want him on the board.
Well, there goes Fox.
This article mentions the need for an investigation into an attempt by Facebook to influence the 2020 election.
I think that it’s time for that investigation.
Oh wait. It was just a mistake?
Surrrrrrre. We believe you, Facebook. Really, we do… except, we don’t.
Facebook, you have a problem. You had better fix it quick, or get investigated for election tampering.
Hmmm… Yes. I’m thinking more and more about a nice big ‘election tampering’ investigation. Of course, it won’t happen. But, we can dream.
As I have said before, we WILL lose this battle. We WILL be silenced on the social media channels that are run by Satan’s minions. It’s going to happen. But, we still have to do our best to get the word out. They can’t take us all down. And, while we still have a voice, we are required to speak.
And, it looks like Devin Nunes is using Jack Dorsey’s words against him. Jack said that they are ‘kind of public square’, yet we have proof that it isn’t. Nunes looks like he’s going to get to the bottom of this and make Twitter pay.
This is a good idea.
Well done, congressman.
(And, I don’t get to say that sentence very often.)
As I said last week, people want their toys and treats, and they will vote for anyone who gives them their toys and treats.
And so, we destroy ourselves.
Charles Hugh Smith makes a fascinating comparison between the American Revolution and the conditions in America today. And unfortunately, this is NOT a good thing to see.
Here is the first paragraph:
The American Revolution arose not from politics but from rapid social and economic changes that revealed the precariousness of the colonists’ prosperity. Conventional histories focus on the political context (Boston Tea Party, etc.), but more important were the changes in social relations, and the impact of the economy moving from quasi-feudal forms of patronage to an economy of impersonal market forces.
The political revolution was the result of profound shifts in social and economic structures.
The British government was acting without regard for the welfare of its American colonies, and the colonists were realizing that London represented a real threat to their livelihood. The colonists were becoming prosperous, and the British government wished to rapaciously take that prosperity from them.
At the same time, new ideas were reaching the average colonist. Individualism. Reason. Liberty. They were all capturing the thought and mind of the average person.
So, as a new economy was forming, new ideas were flooding in – and the British government was failing to understand the new paradigm. And, when the old ways of control stopped working, the British government just piled on more and more of ‘the old ways of control’.
The whip used to work well… until those being whipped realized that they could take away the whip from the hand of their abuser. The British quickly found themselves outnumbered and did not understand why, until it was too late.
And, I’m still a bit peeved over the fact that the British brought in the Hessian, who killed the first John Little in America.
Then Charles Hugh Smith writes these two… no, THREE …paragraphs:
As I noted last week in What If Politics Can’t Fix What’s Broken?, politics as practiced in a bygone era of stability no longer offers any solutions to these profound disruptions. Middle ground has vanished, and ideologies have become quasi-religious because they no longer offer any practical guidance to a society and economy that are being transformed by the 4th Industrial Revolution, resource depletion and demographics.
Once again Americans are awakening to the precariousness of their prosperity and liberties, and traditional forms of belonging, loyalty and authority are unraveling. As the pie shrinks, the struggle to maintain one’s own share at the expense of others becomes Darwinian, and so it’s no surprise that finance and politics are increasingly winner-take-all or winner-take-most zero-sum endeavors.
The elite college admissions scandal is a timely example of this dynamic: those with $500,000 can bribe the right people in the centralized hierarchy to get their Little Darling onto a winner-take-most career track.
Society is changing, and there’s a growing view that the elites are keeping us from getting what we deserve. Up to this point, we were willing to see the elite take more than their ‘fair share’ as long as our own prosperity was on the increase. But, that has changed.
The economic pie is shrinking, and the elites are STILL rapidly increasing their share of that pie, while the average person has no hope at all of any increase in prosperity. In fact, the hope of even holding on to what prosperity that they have is gone.
Millennials have already given up hope of duplicating the prosperity of their parents, the Baby Boomers. And for generation Y… well, they see the depressed view of their parents and the even bleaker outlook of their own future and…
What will Generation Y and Z do?
Well, let me give you the end of this article:
A precarious revolution is brewing, as the old social, political and economic structures unravel and fail. The sober politics of compromise is giving way to the expedient politics of bread and circuses, borrowing whatever sums are needed to placate every corrupt, parasitic elite and every demanding constituency. This is the pathway to financial ruin as the currency will be destroyed by the politics of expediency.
New social, political and economic structures will arise that are stable because they reflect new realities. Describing these structures is the purpose of my books:
Pathfinding our Destiny: Preventing the Final Fall of Our Democratic Republic
Money and Work Unchained
A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology and Creating Jobs for All: The Future Belongs to Work That Is Meaningful.
The politics of failed ideologies and financial expediency will not end well.
One thing is clear to me.
The morons in Washington D.C. do not understand the destruction that they have wrought in America. And, those that DO understand, are so psychopathic that they just do not care about the suffering of the their subjects.
They are just like King George, in how he felt about the colonists, 250 years ago.
All of this sounds a lot like what Jesus was speaking about, when He told His disciples about the Last Days:
For [ethnos] shall rise against [ethnos], and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows.
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.
And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
– Matthew 24:7-12
I deliberately placed the word [ethnos] in there, instead of ‘nation’. Why? Because you understand that ‘ethnos’ is the root of ‘ethnic’. And, THAT is what Jesus meant when He said nation or ‘ethnos’. And, when the translators of the King James Version were translating that word, ‘ethnos’, they understood that the word ‘nation’ was the same as saying ‘ethnic group’.
What Jesus was speaking of was revolution and the fracturing of countries along ethnic lines. And, countries will rise up against each other. But, that will only be the BEGINNING.
As bad as things have been until now, you haven’t seen ANYTHING yet.
Please understand that devastation is coming.
Even though Charles Hugh Smith compares our current situation to the AMERICAN Revolution, what we will see won’t be like that. And, Charles understands that because he ends his piece with a picture of the CHINESE Revolution.
And, you do NOT want the Chinese Revolution.
Okay, so hopefully you saw what I wrote about the Charles Hugh Smith article, and actually did read the article.
This is where ‘hardscrabble farmer’ comes in and adds his own thoughts on the matter. And, he talks about The Fourth Turning. If you don’t know what the Fourth Turning is all about, listen up.
In the book, which was written in the late 1990s, authors William Strauss and Niel Howe theorize that the history of civilization moves in 80-to-100 year cycles called “saecula.”
The idea behind this theory dates back to the Greeks, who believed that at given saeculum’s end, there would come “ekpyrosis,” or a cataclysmic event.
This era of change is known as the Fourth Turning, and it appears we are in the midst of one right now.
The last few Fourth Turnings that America experienced ushered in the Civil War and the Reconstruction era, and then the Great Depression and World War II. Before all of that, it was the Revolutionary War.
Each Fourth Turning had similar warning signs: periods of political chaos, division, social and economic decay in which the American people reverted from extreme division and were forced to reunite in the rebuild of a new future, but that only came after massive conflict.
Today’s divide among many Americans is strong. We are headed for a collision that will rip this country apart at the seams. The timing of the next Fourth Turning is now, and it could take at least another decade to complete the cycle.
After the Fourth Turning, America will not be the America you are accustomed to today. So, let us stop calling today the “greatest economy ever” and start preparing for turbulence.
I got that quote from here:
Most Americans See A Sharply Divided Nation; The Fourth Turning Is Here
Unfortunately, we aren’t facing ‘turbulence’. We’re facing utter catastrophe and the rise of Antichrist. This will be a horrendous and horrifying time.
Then, Charles offers a kind of postscript to his earlier piece by pointing out all the money that the financial aristocracy will make, with all these ‘social programs’ that the socialists are proposing.
Remember that… when the government hands out free money …the first people to get their cut, are the financial aristocracy.
And, it’s a very NICE cut, thankyouverymuch.
This article is a reflection of Martin Armstrong’s ECM – Economic Confidence Model. And, that model tracks more than just economic confidence. It tracks confidence in… well …almost everything.
And, it seems to me, and to the writer of this piece, that confidence has collapsed. In everything. Government, justice, health, the medical profession, Wall Street, you and me. Everything. We’ve been cast adrift, and we are heading straight for the shoals that will rip out our keel and sink us, as we are smashed to bits.
Here are the first three sentences, that I could have written myself:
I worry about America. When I was young, despite all its problems, America was greater than life, always beaming with optimism with a vision of a better future always ahead. Now that I’m getting older I’m very much unsure.
Unfortunately, I’m afraid that I’m far more sure of America’s future than Sven is. Sven seems to have a little hope left. A little.
The only hope that I have, is that America is not completely destroyed, that there are pieces of America that can be salvaged from the rubble of what she once was.
They can do even more than that. Ben Davidson of Suspicious 0bservers has shown that there is an increase in psychological ‘issues’ when a coronal mass ejection (CME) hits the earth. And, it follows along with a verse that I have talked about, in Ezekiel’s Fire:
In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
– Zechariah 12:4
Here’s the key part of the verse, in case you missed it:
I will smite every … rider with madness
I removed the stuff in the middle that might have distracted you. Smiting horses with astonishment is a big deal too, but that’s not what this article talks about. This is about our vulnerability to electromagnetic interference.
That’s right. Madness. The riders. You. Me.
For a period of time, this CME will cause our brains to ‘short circuit’ – or something like that. It will be a very, very big deal.
And, if you need verification of the intensity of this event, just read Isaiah 30. Instead of calling my book, Ezekiel’s Fire, I could have called it Isaiah’s Sun.
I really hope that all of you will be ready for this.
I talked about this last week, but this article contains some useful diagrams.
What happened then, didn’t have a huge effect, other than to drive a few people crazy. What will happen in Ezekiel’s Fire will be far worse and cause massive destruction around the world.
There are several different ways of measuring happiness, and I’m not sure that THIS report is the best one. But, it might a good place to start.
The issue is – to my mind – fulfillment.
Does your life have worth?
One of the reasons why Israel is so high on the happiness list, is that every person in Israel knows that they are valued very highly. Family, friends and even the government are directly involved in helping YOU – if you are an Israeli. Yes, the stress is high, and the trauma of some of what happens in Israel is overwhelming at times.
Where you live… does ANYONE care about you?
Is there ANYONE that you can trust to pull you out, if you find yourself in the pit of despair?
For Israelis, there’s always someone that you can trust – whether it’s family, or the guys you served with in the IDF.
In America… not so much.
What about your church?
How many of the people that you go to church with, could you trust with your life?
If you got into serious trouble and desperately needed help, would they be there for you?
Would YOU be there for THEM?
If someone desperately needed help, would you be there for them?
Is there a limit to the help that you would give?
You see, this is how far our churches have fallen. We don’t love each other, anymore. We have limits to how far we’re willing to help. Our generosity is tiny.
One day soon, everything in your life that you thought was stable, will fall. And, you will desperately need help.
Will there be anyone to help you, when that day comes?
Will YOU be ready to help others when THEIR day comes?
And, is your church the kind of church that would chip in and help, when things go bad?
When things go bad, your community of friends and family, and especially your church, will be the ones to give you the safety that you need. That will always be the first step in preparation for the difficult days ahead.
Harvard did a huge study on what makes people happy, and they are already 75 years into this study, and the current director of this study presents their findings, so far. But, let me quote the first couple of his almost 13 minute presentation:
What keeps us healthy and happy as we go through life? If you were going to invest now in your future best self, where would you put your time and your energy? There was a recent survey of millennials asking them what their most important life goals were, and over 80 percent said that a major life goal for them was to get rich. And another 50 percent of those same young adults said that another major life goal was to become famous.
And we’re constantly told to lean in to work, to push harder and achieve more. We’re given the impression that these are the things that we need to go after in order to have a good life. Pictures of entire lives, of the choices that people make and how those choices work out for them, those pictures are almost impossible to get. Most of what we know about human life we know from asking people to remember the past, and as we know, hindsight is anything but 20/20. We forget vast amounts of what happens to us in life, and sometimes memory is downright creative.
But what if we could watch entire lives as they unfold through time? What if we could study people from the time that they were teenagers all the way into old age to see what really keeps people happy and healthy?
We did that. The Harvard Study of Adult Development may be the longest study of adult life that’s ever been done. For 75 years, we’ve tracked the lives of 724 men, year after year, asking about their work, their home lives, their health, and of course asking all along the way without knowing how their life stories were going to turn out.
And, do you know their conclusion?
Here, I’ll give it to you. It’s his last statement in this presentation:
The good life is built with good relationships.
What was it that Jesus said to us?
A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
– John 13:34-35
How much love do you have for your fellow brother or sister in Christ?
Are you telling me the truth?
Are you telling YOURSELF the truth?
Remember that God knows how much you love your brothers and sisters in Christ. And, you can bet that the people around you know how much you love your brothers and sisters in Christ. They SEE how you act towards each other.
And THEY will know that you are a true follower of Christ, if they see that love.
Again, if you want to survive the evil days that are coming, you need to be in a community that loves each other like Jesus called us to love. Do not expect to survive, if you are not in such a community.
Christianity is literally THE MOST PERSECUTED RELIGION IN THE WORLD. No religious group suffers more persecution than Christians. Yet, you don’t hear about what is happening.
In this article, Michael Snyder goes through a host of examples of the foulest kinds of persecutions, and then says this:
If you were to replace “Christians” with some other favored group in any of the examples that I have just shared, you would instantly have front page news all over the planet.
That says a lot, doesn’t it.
I talk about China a lot, and not just because China is so close to where I live. You need to know that China is NOT stable, and it could collapse for a host of reasons. And, that collapse – if it happens – will be heard around the world and will effect everyone.
More importantly, we have brothers and sisters in Christ who are in harm’s way, when that collapse occurs. THEY will suffer greatly, and are already suffering. But, there is a reason for their suffering, and this is a big one.
The Taiping Rebellion that very few in the West know about, has scarred the Chinese psyche. And, it has demonstrated that China always stands at the brink of the Abyss. If things go bad, the peasants will revolt. So, China must take every precaution to stamp out a revolt before it starts.
That’s why China is moving so quickly to implement such repressive measures, right now and as fast as they can. Unfortunately for them, they might already be too late.
And, by persecuting the evangelical Christians, they have undoubtedly sealed their fate, since the evangelicals could have helped hold society together.
Oh, and there have been a number of people rise up and claim to be Jesus. The latest of these started a movement called Eastern Lightning. And they claim that a woman named Yang Xiangbin, is the reincarnation of Jesus and is Almighty God. She was born in 1973 and eventually fled to the United States.
Anyway, watch the video. You’ll get an earful of something that you probably did NOT know.
ARTICLES OF NOTE
These articles have a more individual importance. They cross categories, and are often in their own category. And, I think that these should be your first stop in your reading.
I’m sorry, but if you listen to ‘rabbi’ Jonathan Cahn you are allowing yourself to be led astray. He has already been proven as a false teacher. This doesn’t mean that he isn’t a Christian or a brother in Christ. But, what it does mean is that he does not have the proper wisdom to discern what the Bible teaches. And, he actually disobeys God directly.
Jesus told us to never let anyone call you Rabbi.
He directly disobeys the words of Jesus.
And, he also brings in Jewish forms and concepts that do not belong in the Body of Christ. In the fourth picture in this piece, where a man with glasses is operating a boom, you can see a middle-aged guy sitting in the congregation – with a prayer shawl around his shoulders and tsitsim (tassels with blue, interwoven).
These Judaic elements are a bad sign. This includes the blowing of ram’s horns (shofar), wearing a kipa and tefillin. It doesn’t mean that such a person isn’t saved. But, it is against what God commanded us to do. It is rebellion.
Judaism may still hold a shadow of what they had, long ago, but they are still pagan in the eyes of God. And, we should stay away from all things that dilute and even detract from the message of God.
We are to love the Jewish people, and very few love them as much as I do. But, my knowledge of who and what they are compels me to reject what they believe in their religion.
Please be careful out there, kids. There are a lot of spiritual traps that have been laid in your path.
So, the morons in Brussels are trying make sure that all Europeans think in exactly the correct way.
Unfortunately, their way of thinking is complete and utter idiocy.
Here is more, along the same lines.
But, instead of calling it the Ministry of Truth, like Orwell did. They will call it ‘The East StratCom Task Force’.
I hope that they choke on it.
I hope that these consumers of porn get robbed by every hacker out there. Pornography is one of the big reasons why our civilization is being destroyed. We should be ashamed of ourselves, but we are too far gone to feel any shame for our wickedness.
So, yeah. Choke on that privacy problem.
So, the inventor of WhatsApp says to delete Facebook.
The only question is… what is the alternative that can help people get their message out?
Yup, the foundation is being laid as we speak. And, when something suitably bad hits, where everyone is begging for someone to rescue them from their predicament, they’ll say…
“Sure, we’ll come to the rescue…”
And, they’ll flip the switch that tells everyone what they can do and cannot do, because of their ‘social credit score’.
And eventually, you’ll need a ‘Mark’ on your right hand or forehead. But, that will come much later, when we discover that the first social credit system just isn’t good enough.
But, just remember where it’s being developed:
It’s funny how one of their symbols is a ‘red dragon’.
John Rubino starts off this article with one of the most fundamental concepts of geopolitics that everyone must internalize, if they are ever to understand history and current events:
One of history’s hard lessons is that collapsing financial systems beget authoritarian politics…
He then goes on to flesh out this argument in the rest of his article, and then makes a rather convincing case for gold. And, he also provides links to a couple of books about ‘disappearing’.
The best thinkers on finance and the future always have a clear view of history. Rubino is one of those people.
WHOOPS! Occasional Cortex showed her true colors.
But, I bet that she wins re-election.
So, India and Pakistan made it right to the brink of all out war.
Will Pakistan realize that supporting Islamic terrorists in India is a bad idea?
OF COURSE NOT.
This kind of absolute incompetence makes me madder than… than …well, really mad. These morons left EVERYTHING unsecured, and any crook could have waltzed in, stolen all of that information and sold it on the Dark Web.
This is the kind of insane stupidity that will cause people to clamor for a completely secure system – the one that the Antichrist will offer.
Will Britain crash out of the EU on the 29th? Or, will it grovel to their overlords in Brussels and stay in?
Here’s a rule to live by, if you wish to reach old age:
DO NOT VISIT IRAN. EVER.
I feel very sorry for this guy, since it is clear that he did not know this rule.
Do you remember Donna Brazile?
This woman has a history of corruption, and is a lying liar. The ONLY thing going for her is that she is not as corrupt as Debbie Wasserman Schultz. And, I could be wrong. She could be even MORE corrupt than Debbie.
There is something about Taco Bell hot sauce. I think that we need to bring in the scientists here. This could be big.
What is wrong with you, America?
Why are you doing this to yourself?
You mean that Chinese immigrants understand what these socialist morons are leading America to?
Yeah. They really do. And no, you do NOT want to go where these socialist morons are taking us.
Wait, Colorado wants to make sure that the big states are the only ones to elect the president of the United States?
Are they insane?
Because… um …America has lost the will to live. The Rule of Law. The idea of the Nation State. All of that.
America is just a walking shell of her previous self.
90% of Americans test positive of pesticides in their blood and urine?
THAT is BAD.
Here, let me quote the paragraph in question:
While 90% of Americans have detectable pesticide levels in their urine and blood, “the health consequences of consuming pesticide residues from conventionally grown foods are unknown, as are the effects of choosing organic foods or conventionally grown foods known to have fewer pesticide residues,” they said.
Please remember that pesticides are chemical warfare agents that aren’t all that different than the kinds of ‘chemical warfare’ that is banned by the Geneva Convention.
America used the excuse of ‘chemical weapons’ to invade Iraq, but we have farmers spraying those chemicals on our vegetables.
Is it possible to do this in a less toxic way?
Oh, THIS is smart. You can now guess what will happen next. More and more ‘migrant families’ will start to appear at the border. The fake kind.
Oh, so there ARE problems with cannabis. Just this paragraph should be enough for you:
If high-THC cannabis—including strains such as “trainwreck”, “gorilla glue”, and “hindu kush”—were no longer available, “12 percent of cases of first-episode psychosis could be prevented across Europe,” the researchers calculated.
Just because we don’t know WHY this is happening, doesn’t matter. What matters is that you are subjecting your brain to a substance that can destroy your ability to think, or even perceive reality.
Okay, I’m putting this in here because Mrs. Little said this:
The Chinese are more like Arabs.
And, she was referring to the clannishness of the Chinese in mainland China. There’s some of that clan mentality here in Taiwan, but it’s really bad in China. And, Mrs. Little blames Mao for all of that.
And, for those of you thinking about going to China, you REALLY need to take this video to heart. You ARE defenseless in China. Just understand that.
You’re pretty defenseless ANYWHERE. But in China… it’s very easy to go to jail or die, for doing the right thing.
So, is the FBI joining this investigation to actually HELP?
Or, have they joined it to cover up any wrongdoing that might harm Boeing’s stock market value?
Why would the FBI want to do this?
Because Boeing is a key part of the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), an index of hand-picked stocks that ‘represent’ the larger stocks on the New York Stock Exchange.
If Boeing gets dragged down, the DJIA (aka, The Dow) will get dragged down, and investors might panic. And, as Gregory Mannarino has said, the Fed and Washington are doing their very, very best to keep the stock market rising and rising and rising some more.
The FBI will make sure that no information is leaked to the public before Boeing fixes the problems of the Boeing 737 MAX.
This is how big government manipulates their own people. We are all cows and sheep to them, fenced in and carefully herded so that when slaughter time comes, they don’t have to work too hard to get you.
What a foul and evil situation this all is.
I couldn’t read all this, it was too sickening. Mexico destroyed itself. It started with government corruption, and now the criminal gangs have taken over. And, these gangs love to rape, torture and murder their victims. And, their lust for blood is so incredible that they keep searching for more and more victims.
And, lest you think that this is somehow an aberration, think again. We have seen this kind of thing in every part of the world, throughout history.
If you give humanity the space to be as evil as it can, it will turn towards that evil and grab it with both hands. This is why freedom can ONLY be given to a society that loves and fears God and is moral. Without the love AND fear of God AND strict morality, there can be no freedom.
And, who will make sure that everyone loves and fears God? Is moral?
Right. No one can be trusted to do this. And THIS is why humanity can never be free and will never be free until Jesus returns. And, when He does return, He will rule with an iron rod. Everyone will be forced to at least fear Him and be moral. Or be crushed.
After all, what else did you think the Millennium was all about?
Banks as a Shadow Government?
This should surprise no one.
Hey, I know. Let’s take the term ‘dirt bag’ to a new low. Let’s just try to be so disgusting that we actually make it in the Guiness Bo…
On second thought, let’s not.
This is why I will never fly Turkish Airlines or change planes in a Turkish airport.
Because I call this person of uncertain parentage, OINK ERDOGAN.
And, I’ve been calling him that for years. So, no more trips to Turkey for me.
And all that I had to do was insult the prime minister.
YAY! NO MORE TURKEY! YAY!
Seriously, I’ve spent WAY too much time in Turkey, and I have NEVER liked the place. There’s a darkness about Turkey that has always repulsed me. And, it might have something to do with the murder of two million Christians for being Christian, just over a hundred years ago.
So, Google. About that slogan that you used to have.
Don’t be evil?
Well, it’s really clear about what you are NOW.
Google has clearly embraced evil and made it a part of their basic identity. I guess that this is why they had to change the slogan.
So, Brazil is so corrupt and mismanaged, that heavily armed gangs can roam the countryside, at will. And, their attempt to steal nuclear fuel is interesting.
This was a well-coordinated attack. An ambush.
Who did this ‘gang’ wish to sell this nuclear fuel to?
Who would BUY this fuel?
For what purpose?
Just remember that it takes a HUGE amount of work to refine nuclear power plant fuel into weapons-grade uranium.
CORRUPTION AND THE MILITARY TAKEOVER TO SOLVE IT
What is going on with Hillary and the corruption being revealed in Washington, is so huge… that I doubt that it is possible to emphasize enough, the seriousness of this situation. I believe that these revelations will eventually take down the Republic and replace the current government with one ruled by the generals. And please, do not discount this.
Remember what John Adams said about democracies. They always commit suicide. And, that is what America is doing.
The evidence of Clinton corruption is so vile and so compelling, that it amazes me that no one is shocked by this.
This is completely treasonous. That foul woman and her filthy husband need to be in jail for the rest of their lives.
But… nothing will happen to them, and they will get to keep all the corrupt and illegal money that they received.
That, my friends, is America.
I would dearly love to believe that these miscreants will be brought to justice. But, I’m afraid that these people will never be made to pay for their crimes.
So, ol’ Kamala had a cozy relationship with Herbalife and decided not to investigate them, when there were obvious grounds for doing so.
Oh, she would make a PERFECT president.
And that’s just what they KNOW about just one part of this corrupt program.
Someone in the military was smart enough to realize that they were being lied to and stolen blind. So, they chose a different strategy. One that’s a little more cost-conscious.
It’s not enough, but it’s something.
Of course, the Department of State has always had a cozy relationship with the CIA. After all, they helped CREATE the CIA.
Very interesting, and vile. Really vile.
Even MORE proof in the corruption of the British government.
This is a legitimate asylum request. This man will face death, should he be forced to return to Iran. But, the dirtbag who attempted to reject his asylum request, hates Christianity so much that he went to great lengths to criticize Christianity as a violent religion – which it is most assuredly not.
It has been a while since I published anything on the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD). This is partly due to a dramatic slow-down in construction, due to corruption. However, a new government has taken over, and new contractors have been brought in. And, the delays are only going to make the filling of this dam even more extreme.
This dam MUST go online, as soon as possible, to start repaying all the debts that have accumulated. And, the new government in Addis Ababa will want to demonstrate results to stay in power.
This means that all those promises that they will carefully fill the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam will be completely and utterly worthless. I believe that they will fill that dam as fast as possible, drying up the Nile, just as chapter 19 of Isaiah said that they would.
They have kept saying that they will fill this dam, next year, and never do. This time, they might mean what they say.
This is going to be traumatic for Egypt – just as Isaiah said.
This is the most comprehensive analysis of the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project that I have seen, since I started talking about this dam in 2014.
Yes, that’s right. I’ve been hollering about this for five years.
What has Egypt done in that intervening time period, to prepare itself for this catastrophe?
And, now that Ethiopia has brought in the Chinese… any hope for a slow filling of this dam is impossible. Worse, this article points out that the design of this dam was done in secrecy, so they weren’t able to bring in experts to create a design that would limit the damage to Egypt.
Well, you can now guess that this dam design will MAXIMIZE the damage to Egypt. And, this article pretty much points the finger of blame at Egypt, without actually saying so.
This article is also overly optimistic. It thinks that talks can hammer out a way to keep Egypt and Egyptians from dying. But, it neglects to talk about the pressures that Ethiopia is under to fill this dam as quickly as possible.
The bottom line?
We are seeing the fulfillment of Isaiah 19, right in front of our very eyes.
And, I can hardly believe what I’m seeing.
Here is a nice summary of the above report, along with some videos.
And FINALLY, there are some videos of pretty good quality that I can share on this issue. Over the past five years of reporting on this issue, it has been hard to get good information on what is happening. And, this video and the next one do a pretty good job of giving you great little summaries of what is happening. And, this first one is from an Ethiopian point of view.
This provides the Egyptian side of things. And, as the speaker says, the Nile IS Egypt. Without the Nile, there can be no Egypt.
Unfortunately, because of Egypt’s bad faith moves towards Ethiopia, and some… I don’t know …possible ‘accidents’ that may – or may not – have been Ethiopia’s fault, Egypt has NOT handled the situation with Ethiopia in a friendly way.
This is why a dam project like this was always going to happen at the worst possible time for Egypt. When they were powerful, Egypt didn’t want to share the Nile. Now that she is weak, Egypt will have the Nile taken away from her.
And, all of these events are a part of the fulfillment of Isaiah 19.
Egypt is in trouble, and the government is getting ready to tighten its grip on power – because food and water scarcity will cause people to challenge that grip on power.
China has been doing the same, for roughly the same reason.
This article lays out the current situation surrounding the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam. However his insistence that a deal MUST BE DONE is incorrect. It SHOULD be done. It would be a great idea if an agreement was forged over this dam.
And, I’m afraid that any deal that Ethiopia agrees to, will be promptly broken whenever it suites them to break it. Or, maybe I should put it another way.
This deal will be broken whenever China pressures Ethiopia to break the deal. Remember that China has been brought in to help complete this dam. And, they will want their money. So, this dam will need to be filled pretty quickly , to make sure that this dam can start selling electricity as soon as possible.
Just to give you an idea of the effect that this dam will have on Egypt, here’s a quote from this article:
Ethiopia plans to store 74 billion cubic meters of Nile water behind the dam, which would affect the 55.5 billion cubic meters of water that Egypt currently gets from the Nile. Ethiopia’s leaders insist the dam will also benefit all three countries.
This dam represents the suffering and death of millions of Egyptians. And, I’m afraid that Isaiah 19 predicted this.
And, I am puzzled by Ethiopia’s insistence that this dam will also benefit Egypt.
There’s no way that this dam would EVER benefit Egypt.
So, it looks like Abdel Fattah al-Sisi will be the cruel Lord described here:
And the Egyptians will I give over into the hand of a cruel lord; and a fierce king shall rule over them, saith the Lord, the Lord of hosts.
– Isaiah 19:4
I know that the doesn’t look cruel, but you need to take a closer look at his methods. He’s a lot less cuddly than he looks. And, when things turn bad, he will be forced to take the gloves off.
Here’s a bit more on the above Jerusalem Report article.
Yes, I would say that al-Sisi is a modern-day Pharoah.
Ethiopian army possibly equipped with Russian Pantsir-S1 air defense systems | March 2019 Global Defense Security army news industry | Defense Security global news industry army 2019 | Archive News year
Oh, and just to make sure that Egypt doesn’t get any ideas about bombing this dam, Ethiopia is getting Russian anti-aircraft systems to protect this dam – although, they do not specifically SAY this.
THE WAR AGAINST FREEDOM OF SPEECH
It’s hard to believe that I need to actually make this a category, but I guess that I need to.
I am truly horrified by this concerted attempt by the mainstream media and social media to shut down anyone that disagrees with them. This is sick and twisted, and it’s an attempt to limit your ability to obtain the kinds of facts that you need to see the future clearly.
And yes, they really do want to control what and how you think.
Last week, I talked about Epistemology – the study of how we know what we know and how we know that it is true.
Well, we have a HUGE problem when the companies that govern the pipeline for discovering information, are making it impossible for you to find that information.
For instance, do a search for my article:
“The Truth About Israel”
And, make sure that you put that search in double quotation marks so that the search engine will not be confused by what you are looking for.
On google, you will not find my article. No matter how deep you go into the search results, my article will not be found. Period.
You will ONLY find it on Google, if you know that I wrote it and put in the word, ‘omegashock’ after your search term.
So, unless you know who wrote on the subject that you are researching, there is a HUGE amount of information that you will be unable to find.
Why? I cannot be completely certain of why this is. Google used to let you dig as deep as you wanted in their search results. Now, they don’t.
But, notice what happens when you use DuckDuckGo or Bing or Yahoo. My article appears on the first page of their search results. Even Yandex finds my article.
But, not Google.
I even did a Google search for the video that I did, last year, on the 2018 edition of “The Truth About Israel”.
Did I find it?
But, I did find some guy named Aaron Goldberg who has 379 subscribers. I found HIS video. And, it had all of… wait for it …515 views.
Then, I went to Youtube. And, searched for it via YouTube’s search.
YAY, I FOUND IT!
It’s this one:
Will YOU find it?
I don’t know. YouTube might even be letting me find the video, just to keep me from going berzerk. But, there’s a serious problem when you cannot find something because Google refuses to give it to you.
And yes, this really is a problem. After all, you can find my articles on Yahoo, Bing and DuckDuckGo. But, not Google.
Now, not ALL of my articles are suppressed. The one on the Dunning-Kruger Effect has not been suppressed… yet. And, you can find my article titled, “The Semitary”. But, do I need to go through ALL of my articles to find out which ones that they are suppressing?
And, in case you are wondering if my article about Israel got too ‘stale’ for Google, I did a search for the article that I did BEFORE that one. It’s this one:
I found that article, just fine.
So, why is Google suppressing my article?
Does it ruin too many closely held beliefs?
Is it too Christian?
What is the reason for them suppressing that article?
The first version of that article was written in 2017, and I only did a second version of it, because that first one was suppressed so thoroughly. And, suddenly.
In fact, I wrote the first version as a way to push back against the Antisemites and to neutralize the lies that were being passed around. And, whenever I saw Antisemites lying about Israel, I would search on Google for my article, and paste a link to it in comment sections.
Could it be that the article was too effective?
Did the Antisemites get too hot and bothered by it, and run screaming to Google to have it censored?
I don’t know. But, I DO KNOW one thing:
Google is deliberately censoring its search results.
Other search engines aren’t.
And, as I branch out into other social media platforms, I’m wondering if the censorship against Omega Shock will increase.
The Internet was meant to be a way for people to obtain facts and truth. It was supposed to facilitate the free flow of ideas and information. When she began, Google helped us do that. But, not now.
Now, you get propaganda. And, as with any good propaganda, you DO get some truth, but it’s truth that has been massaged and distorted.
Welcome to the Last Days.
THIS is sickening. Julian Assange’s mother has been trying to push back against the lies being told about her son. And, she is working hard to get him released from his virtual ‘house arrest’ in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.
All that she is doing is advocating for her son, and the dirt bags at Twitter are restricting her account.
THIS is a dark and cruel world that we live in, and the dirt bags are running it.
Washington is ‘fed up’? Really?
But, are we going to actually SEE THEM DO ANYTHING?
Of course not. Google and Facebook pay them too much money, so they’ll just talk and do nothing.
What a disgusting world to live in.
Just for the record let me state something clearly:
I AM NOT ANTI-VACCINE!
The question is whether every vaccine is necessary, or whether the ADDITIVES in these vaccines are doing damage to you.
The problem is that the vaccine industry does NOT want ANY question raised over how these vaccines are made and whether there is a better, safer way to make these vaccines.
Remember that every vaccine is an assault on the body, because each vaccine is designed to encourage the body to create defenses against the virus or bacteria that it is in danger of being harmed by.
Each of these assaults does damage. It’s what an assault does. Now, the assault might be small enough for the body to recover from. AND, the reward might outweigh the risk.
BUT WE AREN’T BEING ALLOWED TO TALK ABOUT THIS!!!
This is what is bothering me.
Again, I AM NOT ANTI-VACCINE!!! But, not being able to have a discussion about what vaccine we should take, and when we should take it, is maddening.
Does a baby who is one day old need to be assaulted by multiple vaccines of questionable efficacy?
Have we really looked into the potential harm that these vaccines might do to a BABY THAT IS ONE DAY OLD?
Why are we unable to discuss the risk/reward of a vaccine?
Why are there morons out there trying to shut down this conversation?
Flat Earthers are the dumbest morons on the planet, but I don’t feel ANY need to shut them down. I am just incredibly amazed by this desire to shut down this discussion.
Just because vaccines work, doesn’t mean that you should take every vaccine.
Oh, and notice something interesting.
When did this whole vaccine push start?
In the 1980s.
Why the 1980s?
Because that was when the United States government gave the vaccine industry blanket immunity from law suites. That’s right. You don’t get to sue vaccine makers for the damage that they caused your child. I understand WHY congress did this, since some vaccines are necessary for the common good, but the vaccine industry took this law and turned it into a monster.
Worse, they then threw billions of dollars at federal and local governments so that they would REQUIRE YOU TO TAKE ALL OF THEIR VACCINES. And, they’ve made a LOT of money on this scam.
Do you remember what God said about The Great Whore who rides the Beast?
And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.
– Revelation 18:23
I call her ‘The Beast Rider’ or just ‘Beast Rider’. And, that word ‘sorceries’ is ‘pharmakeia’.
I’m sorry, but The Beast Rider looks a lot like America, and her capital is New York. You might think that The Beast Rider holds the reins of the beast in Washington, but think again. New York is where the rider sits – where all the world’s banks and stock markets and bond markets must bow.
The ONLY question that I have is this:
America/New York City is either The Beast Rider, or a part of The Beast.
Take your pick, but either way, it’s bad.
But, let’s get back to the point:
We are losing our freedom to speak.
And, it’s maddening to watch.
So, now they are ‘protecting consumers’ from… information? By banning website addresses?
How does this protect consumers, while at the same time they allow the most horrible pornography in the world to pass through?
What is it that they are protecting their consumers from?
What insanity is this?
I’ve shown proof that Twitter shadow bans people. And, I’ve shown you the proof that they are lying about it. Now, they are upping their game.
Here’s a quote:
“Twitter confirmed to me today via e-mail that it did shadowban one of my tweets about Lisa Page’s congressional testimony in order to ‘keep people safe[.]’ Twitter deliberately deleted the tweet/URL, yet kept it visible for me when I was logged in so I’d think it was still up,” Davis explained. “T[w]itter claimed in its e-mail to me that it ‘mistakenly remove[d]’ a completely anodyne tweet about public congressional testimony, but didn’t explain why it left the tweet–and metrics showing no engagement–visible to me when logged in. Is conning users a bug, or a feature?”
“Twitter gave me no notice or explanation when it shadowbanned one of my Tweets about Russian interference in our elections,” he continued. “But what’s worse is how Twitter apparently gives its users the fraudulent impression that their tweets, which Twitter secretly bans, are still public.”
Twitter has previously denied shadowbanning users, including Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), and last year, the Big Tech company declared, “We do not shadow ban. You are always able to see the tweets from accounts you follow (although you may have to do more work to find them, like go directly to their profile). And we certainly don’t shadow ban based on political viewpoints or ideology.”
And, Twitter engineers are on record as saying that they shadow ban ANYONE that talks about guns, God or America – or, has an American flag and a cross. If you need more on that, just go to Project Veritas who uncovered their dishonest and dirty tactics.
This is the interesting component of the vaccine debate. Since social media and news organizations have been caught lying to us, we just cannot trust them to tell us the truth.
Twitter has been caught lying to us. And, they are STILL lying to us. And, it will take a very long time before Twitter can recover its reputation – assuming that they start being honest, NOW and will forever STAY honest.
Right. None of you believe that Twitter will ever be honest or stay honest.
So, they said that they did this for our own good. To protect us.
Really? There are facts that are just too true and too damaging, and we must be protected from them?
Well, Zero Hedge was also awestruck this utter insanity. Here’s the last bit of what they said:
In short, Twitter did not want the public to consider the irony of Hillary Clinton’s campaign paying for a foreign national to collude with Russians against Donald Trump, while the FBI scrambled to prove the Trump campaign did.
In other censorship news, ZeroHedge is now banned in New Zealand and much of Australia following our reporting on the Christchurch terror attacks.
Sorry citizen, some facts are just too dangerous for your own good.
Yes, dangerous facts should not be allowed.
Here, look at some pictures of kittens.
ECONOMIC AND FINANCIAL COLLAPSE
We’ve been talking about the collapse of the economy and financial system for a very long time, and every day that collapse is delayed… well …the collapse just gets worse and worse. Eventually, it will be an explosion that will devastate the world and lead to chaos, confusion, death, destruction and war. Lots and lots of war.
In fact, it has begun already.
By the time that you see it, it will be too late to do anything about it.
China says one thing and actually DOES the opposite?
Where have we heard this kind of thing before?
This is a VERY bad headline for those of you hoping for a bright economy for 2019.
I believe that that the recession has already started.
The one big point that you need to take away from this conversation is that money printing will lift markets. How long, is hard to say. But, a recession won’t necessarily cause a stock market crash. So, be careful about shorting markets that are being given artificial support.
Three straight months of declines in core factory orders?
If you want to know what I would LOVE to turn The ShockCast into, this is it.
But, no. I’m not going there.
However, this video IS valuable, since it talks about zombie companies. This is a big problem for ANY economy, which is why we need recessions – or, even depressions. They wipe out the zombies and allow better companies to take their place.
Zombie companies eat up the resources that bright-eyed and bushy-tailed young companies could use, and use more efficiently. But, since the zombies are protected, the bright, young companies get squashed by the zombies – and have their brains eaten.
And, I’m afraid that China has a LOT of zombies. America does too – but, not as many as China does.
So, don’t let the zombies eat your brains.
I seem to be quoting Michael Snyder a lot this week. But, he has had a lot to say that it important for you to read, and FedEx is pointing to economic numbers that indicate that the global part of the Recession is already here.
But… is it in America yet?
Yeah. It looks like it.
I’ve already quoted the author of this piece, Sven Henrich, but I don’t need to do more than point you to the title. If you need details… go ahead and read this.
But, brace yourselves for some trouble.
There are two things that you need to think about, from this article:
#1 A big sign that recession is here.
#2 Housing prices in the US are insane
The proof for #1 is here:
The only thing that even comes close to this sharp of deceleration was circa-2007.
And, the proof for #2, is the psychology that wants housing prices to keep accelerating. You can look at these prices all day long and not really understand what you are seeing. The scary thought is that there are so many people who want to see housing prices continue to accelerate, as if this is a good thing.
Do these people stop and think about what continuously accelerating housing prices mean for new families and those struggling to put enough food on the table for their kids?
Germany has an obsessively export-driven economy. So, when you see German manufacturing decline like this, you know that the world economy is in bad shape.
GOLD, SILVER AND CRYPTOCURRENCIES
When economic and financial collapse comes your way, you need something tangible to weather the storm. Right now, I cannot think of anything tangible that is so fiercely undervalued and universally recognized as gold and silver.
There might be other things that are better. I just can’t see ’em. If you can think of something better, share it with us.
And, while I am a bit cynical about cryptocurrencies, that doesn’t mean that they aren’t an alternative worth looking into.
I’m not sure how great this will be for the value of gold.
Will this mean that it increases a lot in value?
Just remember that it doesn’t earn income. And, it costs money to store. That means that banks won’t want to load up too much on gold.
This is still good for gold, but don’t bet the farm on this.
Here’s a real ‘gold bug’ who has a much more measured and reasoned approach to this new rule that will go into effect on April 1st. And, Mike Maloney says something interesting and important:
They’re getting ready for the next financial crisis.
And, if you see the stuff that I’ve put in the Finance and Economics category, you’ll know that I believe that the financial crisis has already begun.
Actually, if we’re really being honest, it hasn’t stopped. What started in 2007 (and before) hasn’t stopped. But, don’t mind me. I’m just being a cynic.
The thing to remember is that the big boys are getting ready for trouble.
You should too.
The writer of this piece is a gold bug. So, take what he says with a bit of salt.
But, he DOES make a good point that gold is an extremely undervalued asset that has retained its value better than any other currency on the planet. So, there are some good arguments here.
I did put what money what we had into gold, not because I thought that it was such a great investment. I just didn’t trust any other financial vehicle.
I used to be a HUGE believer in the stock market. But, those days are gone. I have no faith in that corrupt institution, and I believe that only people like Martin Armstrong or Gregory Mannarino have any chance of making good returns on their investments.
For myself, I don’t have the time to follow these gentlemen. I have a job to do. Writing articles for you to read, and then broadcasting what I find on YouTube and podcast. I have to choose between managing my own finances, which have declined rapidly and warning you of what is coming.
The price has been high, but worth it.
So, if you DO have enough money to purchase gold and silver, read this article and think about whether it makes sense to you.
Ultimately, I’m posting these to keep my sanity. Hopefully, you find them funny to, but that’s not the point.
After having posted all that stuff above… I’ve just gotta’ post some fun stuff, or Mrs. Little will be forced to drag me off to the looney farm.
Oh, and the fact that she likes a lot of these too, helps.
It doesn’t look like I was able to do very much humor this week. Hmmm… not a good sign.
So, watch and be… amazed? (or something)
EVIL PLUS INSANITY
There’s something about evil that creates people that are wicked and insane. And, that is what this category is all about.
And, to tell you the truth, I can hardly believe what I’m seeing here.
Japan shows us how NOT to be insane, by demanding that people wishing to be identified by another gender than the one that they were born with, must actually go through with a complete surgery that removes the one gender and replaces it with the other. If you have a uterus and ovaries, they must be removed and replaced by a penis and testicles. And, vice versa.
That is remarkably sane and their explanation is also:
In its ruling, the court said that the law was intended to avoid “confusion” and “abrupt change” to society. Yukari Ishii, a researcher at Toyo University in Tokyo, says that whereas in America and Europe long campaigns for gay rights paved the way for transgender people to call for more equitable treatment, Japan is further behind. Japanese society is patriarchal and retains strong gender stereotypes, she says.
Here, let me clue you in on something.
The reason why EVERY healthy society has these ‘strong gender stereotypes’ is because of something called…
(wait for it)
There must be something in the water or the air that is causing British politicians to turn into morons.
Is it the drugs?
Or, the cafeteria at lunch time?
A whole generation of students has been brainwashed on the belief that the world is warming.
Mush for brains.
A very sad thing.
Pleading for their future?
Get a really warm coat and buy a cave. THAT is where your future lies.
These poor, mush-brained idiots. And, they were taught to be mush-brained idiots, so they can’t help themselves.
Well done State Representative Andrew McDaniel.
It’s certainly the kind of thing that the Swiss have already chosen to do. Although, it seems that the Swiss aren’t quite so willing to resort to crime and violence as Americans.
Fauxcahontas is an UNDERDOG?
What an insult to underdogs.
Oh hey, if you use the biologically correct pronoun when speaking to someone – or writing to someone – you could go to jail, in Britain.
YAY! British society is so… so… FREEEEEEEEEE!
The utter insanity of the Washington Post just turned up to eleven.
The credibility of a cockroach.
The morals of a New York City politician.
The charisma of a caterpillar.
(should I keep going?)
The attractiveness of an anteater.
(Okay, I’ll stop.)
The WaPo should just drop the ‘o’ and WaP themselves over the head with something heavy. Preferably a Mac… as in Mac Truck.
Hey, tell the wrong joke, and you could get FIRED.
Isn’t America great?
Oh for crying out loud.
AS A REASON TO STOP DRILLING?
I mean… we have thirty years of proof that ‘climate change’ is a complete fiction. And now, we have a moronic ruling by a moron judge to halt drilling for oil.
For thirty years, they’ve been saying we only have 12 years left before we all die. And, they hafta keep moving the ‘goal posts’ further out, every year. But, it’s always ‘in 12 years we’re all gonna die’.
Morons continue to go ballistic over supposed ‘white power’ hand signs. Fortunately, there are so few real white power nationalists, that it’s actually hard to find someone actually coming up with some kind of hand sign that signifies that they are a complete moron.
And yes, nothing says stupid like ‘white power’, ‘black power’ or any other color power. But, since humanity is an almost eternal spring of moronism, we’ll always get morons who think that this or that skin color should dominate the world.
The irony is that the ‘OK Hand’ sign is also synonymous with the 666 hand sign used by Satanists. Now THAT is something that we’ve seen before. Satanists are a different kind of moron, and I want those people behind bars.
I’ve decided that I’m 29.
I’m wondering… is this kind of insanity contagious?
It seems to be going around. A LOT.
To my fellow Americans in New Jersey that will now have to pay a tax based on how much it rains… you have my sympathy over how insane your government is.
Islam is the most vile and Satanic religion on the planet. It is violent, repressive, racist and supremacist. It isn’t just a religion. It’s an ideology that seeks to destroy any nation, country and government that it comes in contact with.
These are the articles that demonstrate what Islam REALLY is.
David Wood interviews THE Prophet Muhammad!
No, really. It’s a hoot.
We are seeing the fulfillment of the words of Jesus, right now. And, it seems that Islam is leading the way. What insanity!
What is wrong with North America and Europe?
Have they – and we – gone insane?
Unfortunately, all of this IS predictable, as much as it is horrifying.
All that Judge Jeanine did was make a point that moron congresswoman Ilhan Omar was making.
Moron Omar was claiming that Jews – because they were Jewish – were unAmerican and had ties to Israel.
So, Jeanine asked the same question of her, in Islamic terms.
So, Judge Jeanine’s show was yanked.
So, the most protected class in America, are Muslims. Nice.
So, Turkish dirt bag shoots up a tram, and that was one step too far for the Dutch.
One of the reasons why Islam will not ever take over the world, is that their Jihadis are morons.
KHALIFA HAFTAR – LIBYA
When I first realized that Russia was backing Khalifa Haftar in Eastern Libya, I realized that this helped me identify a big piece that I was missing in the Gog and Magog puzzle. All the other members of the Gog and Magog alliance had identified themselves and were moving into place – except for Cush.
Cush is a part of the Gog and Magog alliance, and I’m not sure whether that is Ethiopia, Sudan or another country in sub-Saharan Africa. We’ll see how Cush falls into place. But, for now, we look at Libya.
And, looking at Libya means looking at the fortunes of Khalifa Haftar.
This is a good overview of what has been going on in Libya for the last few months. The writer of this piece talks about Khalifa Haftar taking over Fezzan.
Libya is divided into three main provinces:
Cyrenaica – East Libya
Fezzan – Southwest Libya
Tripolitania – Northwest Libya
Haftar now controls everything except Tripolitania, the smallest of the three provinces. And, he has been taking control of parts of Tripolitania, slowly.
I find it interesting that Turkey has been supporting Islamist gangs in Tripoli, while Russia, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the UAE have been supporting anti-Islamist Haftar.
For all his faults, Haftar seems to be the only one actually putting Libya back together. The corrupt morons ruling Tripoli – and little else – cannot seem to agree on anything and appear to be powerless to stop Haftar from taking over.
From my point of view, which is an arguably sketchy one, Haftar is playing a very, very smart game of carrot and stick. He’s also doing his best to limit the damage to the areas that he conquers and consolidating those areas before moving on to conquer the rest of Libya.
This is a far more hostile view of Haftar, but it comes to the same conclusion that everyone else has been arriving at. Haftar is winning, and little seems to stand in the way of him taking over all of Libya.
And then, there’s more:
Already in control of Libya’s main oil-exporting terminals, the LNA has secured its biggest oil field since beginning its southern campaign in January. That puts Haftar in control of more than 1 million barrels of production a day, giving him crucial leverage over the OPEC member’s key source of income as well as command of its most powerful fighting force.
That means that Tripoli only controls 300,000 barrels of oil a day in production. So, Haftar could turn pretty much everything off, if he wanted to. And, he knows it. But, so far, he hasn’t.
Oh, and one of the reasons why he hasn’t attacked Tripoli is that the US said that he had better not. So, Haftar might be biding his time, waiting for the foreign powers to throw up their hands in disgust at the morons in Tripoli – which France has already done.
Or, Haftar is waiting for the US to get embroiled somewhere else, leaving him free to advance on Tripoli.
We’ll see. Just remember that Russia will be the one to gain the most out of all this.
Oh, and to to give you an idea of just how far into the Tripolitania region Haftar has moved into, Sirte has started to squawk about Haftar getting too close to them.
Notice who is printing Khalifa Haftar’s money.
That’s right. Russia.
Hmmm… yes. Russia.
Notice also that Russia has ‘boots on the ground’ in Libya – supporting General Haftar’s forces. What they are doing there is hard to say, but you can bet that it is primarily training of Haftar’s forces and providing security for oil terminals and oil fields.
They are claiming that the Russian presence is at the level of one battalion of troops, and those troops are being supplied via the Wagner Group – a mercenary organization that Russia uses to provide ‘plausible deniability’ in terms of their involvement with Haftar.
When will Russian involvement add a second battalion, and then reach brigade strength?
Russia is heavily involved in Libya and sees Libya as an opportunity to gain a strong base of operations for their activities in Africa and the Mediterranean Sea. And, for really only a little amount of money, Russia gains a lot.
Just like with Syria.
Russia reaped big rewards in Syria, and they look to do the same, in Libya.
Here is a little more on this Wagner Group, that Russia is using to supply troops to Haftar. Also, consider that these troops will be the best that Russia can offer. These will be a very high class of soldier operating in Libya.
The thing is… Haftar now has a strangle hold on northeastern Libya. Tripoli, on the Mediterranean coast, near Tunisia, will eventually fall to Haftar, one way, or another. Tripoli has no other means of income without the oil coming from the oil wells that Haftar controls. And, Haftar is waiting for Tripoli to fall into his hands, like an overripe plum.
The problem is that Tripoli is ruled by a ragtag coalition of armed gangs that call themselves militias. And, a lot of these militias are Islamists and fear what Haftar will do to them, when he takes power. So, they might find themselves fighting to the death.
It’s hard to say.
GOG AND MAGOG
I’ve been writing about the coming of Gog and Magog for a while. You can find a lot of that, here:
– ezekielsfire.com –
And, the articles below point to that coming. I really, Really, REALLY hope that you’ll be ready for this. Please read Ezekiel’s Fire to make sure. (And yes, it’s free.)
So, the morons in the Bush administration knew that they could handing Iraq over to Iran. But, they still felt like they could take over Iraq without that happening.
Those utter morons. Those drooling idiots. I’m amazed at how stupid these people were – and still are. Some might think that they desired this result, where Iran takes over Iraq and has a free route through to Syria and Lebanon.
THEY KNEW THAT THE SHIITES OF IRAQ OUTNUMBERED THE SUNNIS!!!!!
Yet, they went ahead with their moronic plan, anyway. It’s as if they were flipping through the Bible and saw the prophecy of the coming of Gog and Magog in Ezekiel 38 and 39. And then they said to themselves… “hey, that looks like fun!”
And yeah, it’s really that stupid.
Well, ol’ Oink Erdogan is at it again, trying to portray himself as the ‘protector of Islam’. And, you can bet that his participation in Gog and Magog will be all about ‘protecting Islam’.
Oink is milking this for all that he can?
Well, paint me shocked.
And, ol’ Oink Erdogan is milking this cow even harder, claiming that he was the original target.
So, Iran is moving forward.
How long will it be before they have a domestically produced nuclear weapon?
Do you understand what I mean by that question?
So, Oink Erdogan is airing footage of this shooting… AT EVERY CAMPAIGN RALLY?
He wants to be the ‘Defender of Islam’.
Think of this article as helping to map Turkey’s dance into the arms of Gog and Magog.
Remember that the S-400 that Turkey is buying can target NATO aircraft, while the American alternative cannot.
So, Turkey is planning on targeting some NATO aircraft.
There has been a sickening rise in anti-Semitism among those who call themselves christian. And yes, I used a lower case ‘c’ on purpose. I have little hope that I can turn these minions of Satan from their evil path. Salvation and repentance are the work of God, although I will do my best to serve God in that work.
I’m more interested in keeping my brothers and sisters from being tainted by this Satanic hatred of the Jews. If you are caught by this hatred, you will suffer. If you are convinced to oppose Israel, you will suffer. If you are turned away from supporting God’s work in the Land of Israel, you will suffer.
So, think of this category as my attempt to help you avoid the traps of Satan, that he has laid in your path. God is at work among the Jewish people and with the Jewish people. He is at work in the Land of Israel, turning the Jewish people from their idols and towards the true God of Abraham.
My goal is that you would be greatly blessed. But, you cannot be blessed, if you oppose God.
Pray for the peace of Jerusalem: they shall prosper that love thee.
– Psalm 122:6
May you prosper. And, may you understand how important the Land of Israel is, in these Last Days.
This article misses a couple of reasons why the Merkava was designed like this. This tank can double as a troop carrier or battlefield ambulance, with all of the ammunition in the main body taken out.
Second, the tank has been specifically designed according to how the Israel Defense Forces fight.
Oh, and third, this tank had direct – and still has direct – input from the battle field. Tankers have been able to give direct feedback to the engineers to help improve this tank.
For the terrain and the strategic and tactical needs of Israel, there is no better tank in the world. Period.
Remember that Israel has staked her life on this tank.
Hamas KNEW that Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu needed to act decisively when rockets are fired at Tel Aviv, so why did they do it?
Because they wanted Israel to react harshly against them.
They wanted to start a war. The question is… will we see more of this before the April 9th election in Israel?
If Hamas really is looking for war… yes.
If someone forces them to be peaceful… with real threats to back up the demand …no.
The next two and a half weeks could get… interesting.
And, the threat from Hezbollah is emphasized. By Iran.
Good for you, Donald Trump!
Well done, sir.
And yes, it IS time for the United States to recognize Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.
I’ve been up there quite a few times, and that area is absolutely vital to Israel’s survival. Israel cannot give up the Golan. Ever.
And, I’m afraid that there will be yet another war up there.
A country the size of New Jersey or Taiwan should be able to defend herself, especially after she has been attacked and attacked and attacked and attacked and attacked.
Syria lost her right to Golan in 1948 when that vile country did its very best to kill every last Jewish man, woman and child in Israel. And, I’m glad that Donald Trump is backing Israel on this.
Again, I say Well Done, Mr. President.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. – Proverbs 22:3
