“It’s Like A Ghost Town”: Major Cities All Over The Globe Are Paralyzed By Fear Of COVID-19

March 4, 2020 by Michael Snyder

We haven’t seen anything cause this much worldwide fear in a really long time.  But even though there is so much fear, we still don’t know if this is going to evolve into the next great global pandemic that kills millions of people or not.  I wish that I had a definitive answer for you.  At this point we do know that the number of confirmed cases outside of China continues to rise at a very alarming rate, and we also know that this virus is about 34 times more deadly than the flu according to the latest numbers.  But in order for it to kill millions of people, a substantial percentage of the global population would have to be infected, and we don’t know if that is actually going to happen.

But in major cities around the globe where there has been an eruption of COVID-19 cases, we are seeing severe disruptions in normal activity.

For example, now that several coronavirus deaths have been reported in the area, the lack of tourists has turned downtown Seattle into “a ghost town”

In Seattle, bracing for the coronavirus also means preparing for what could be a devastating economic impact. Business owners and residents have already seen a drop-off in tourists in areas of the city that heavily depend on foot traffic.

It’s like a ghost town,” Francisco said about the famous Pike Place Market where she has her shop.

If you have ever been to Pike Place Market, then you know that it is normally bustling with activity.

But now virtually everyone wants to stay away, and you can’t exactly blame them.  With this virus on the loose, I wouldn’t want to venture down there either.

Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan has already declared a state of emergency, and this will give her the power to cancel a wide range of public events…

As the death toll climbed Tuesday, Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, a Democrat, proclaimed a civil emergency. The declaration allows her to bypass regulations to increase city spending, contracting and borrowing to address the growing public health threat. It will also allow her office to close facilities and cancel events to prevent the virus from spreading further.

On the other side of the globe, the streets of Seoul are virtually empty right now

The streets of Seoul, the South Korean capital, stood nearly empty this week. Those who do venture out wear masks. The normally busy subways have few passengers and riders make sure to sit far away from one another. Many residents are relying on grocery and restaurant delivery apps.

Most Americans don’t realize this, but the population of Seoul actually exceeds the population of New York City.

Normally it is one of the busiest cities on the entire planet, but due to the fear that more than 5,700 confirmed cases in South Korea has caused, it has also become something of “a ghost town”.

Speaking of busy cities, Beijing’s 21 million residents continue to wait for life to return to normal.

Most people are staying home as much as possible, and those that do venture out risk having their temperatures scanned “at regular checkpoints”

Many shops are still closed in Beijing, and residents’ temperatures are scanned at regular checkpoints, as well as inside each store. On streets that are normally so crowded that people are forced to brush shoulders, those who are out keep a good distance from one another.

Could you imagine the uproar that would ensue if similar “checkpoints” were set up here in the United States?

Let us hope that we never get to that point.

In Milan, things are eerily quiet right now.  In fact, nobody has seen the city this quiet in the entire modern history of Italy

In Milan, Italy’s business capital and the center of the country’s outbreak, restaurants, bars and train stations are much less crowded than normal. The usually teeming Piazza del Duomo, home to the city’s cathedral and lined with shops and bars, was almost empty at points Monday.

Italian authorities are absolutely desperate to get this outbreak under control, and so they are implementing pretty extreme measures.

Incredibly, that even includes banning fans from all sporting events until April 3rd

The Italian government have taken drastic measures to help prevent the outbreak of coronavirus by closing all sport events to fans throughout the entire country until April 3. Italy has been the worst-hit European country from the coronavirus, with 107 deaths so far.

It is nice that they have set a deadline, but what are they going to do if we get to April 3rd and this outbreak has gotten even worse?

Could it be possible that Italian fans will not be able to attend sporting events for the foreseeable future?

And will other western countries soon follow suit?

Our lives could be about to change in ways that we couldn’t even imagine just a few weeks ago.

In the UK, residents are being warned that they may soon have to “put their lives on hold for three months”

Britons could be forced to put their lives on hold for three months under a ‘battle plan’ to combat Coronavirus amid warnings today that the deadly disease could incapacitate a fifth of the UK’s workforce.

Boris Johnson today set out the Government’s blueprint to deal with a mass outbreak of the bug that includes a raft of socially and economically costly contingency moves as a last resort.

Could you put your life on hold for three months?

Of course most major pandemics last longer than just three months.  In fact, the Spanish Flu pandemic lasted for three years and it killed tens of millions of people.

Hopefully this outbreak will not be anything like that.

But without a doubt, this is a truly horrible virus.  The following is an excerpt from the account of a 25-year-old British man that actually caught COVID-19

Day 12: I’ve had a relapse. Just as I thought the flu was getting better, it has come back with a vengeance. My breathing is laboured. Just getting up and going to the bathroom leaves me panting and exhausted. I’m sweating, burning up, dizzy and shivering. The television is on but I can’t make sense of it. This is a nightmare.

By the afternoon, I feel like I am suffocating. I have never been this ill in my life. I can’t take more than sips of air and, when I breathe out, my lungs sound like a paper bag being crumpled up. This isn’t right. I need to see a doctor. But if I call the emergency services, I’ll have to pay for the ambulance call-out myself. That’s going to cost a fortune. I’m ill, but I don’t think I’m dying — am I?

I certainly do not want to experience that, and I am sure that you do not want to either.

Coming into this year, I warned about what was ahead, but I definitely did not anticipate that we could potentially be facing a full-blown global pandemic by early March.

COVID-19 could change everything.  I know that many are attempting to downplay the severity of this virus, and that is a huge mistake.

For the foreseeable future, the entire globe is going to be gripped by fear of this virus, and that has very serious implications for all of us.

Supermoon to Appear on Purim, then Passover: ‘An Omen Signaling Imminent Return of Davidic Dynasty’

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz March 4, 2020 , 1:14 pm

Hashem made the two great lights, the greater light to dominate the day and the lesser light to dominate the night, and the stars.” Genesis 1:16 (The Israel Bible™)

The first supermoon of 2020 will appear on Monday evening as the holiday of Purim ends and the second day referred to as Shushan Purim begins.  

A supermoon occurs when the full moon coincides with the perigee — the closest that the Moon comes to the Earth in its elliptic orbit — resulting in a larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as viewed from Earth. A full moon at perigee appears roughly 14% larger in diameter than at apogee and appears up to 30 percent brighter. Supermoons usually appear 3-4 times each year.

The holiday of Purim was set for the 14th day of the Hebrew month of Adar. As per the Book of Esther, the Jews who lived in Shushan celebrated Purim on the 15th of Adar. These two dates were established in perpetuity.

The sages established this rule for other cities that were similar to Shushan, that is to say, walled cities that existed when Joshua entered Israel after the Exodus from Egypt. Along with Shushan (which is located in modern-day southwestern Iran), this includes Jerusalem, Jericho, and, according to some opinions, Jaffa and Tiberias.

Purim also coincides with the vernal (spring) equinox when the Sun crosses the celestial equator – the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator – from south to north. On the equinox, the day and night are each about 12 hours in length everywhere on Earth.  

Americans traditionally assign names to astral events based on Native American traditions who tracked seasons based on lunar cycles. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, one of the most popular names for the full moon in March is the “Full Worm Moon ” because as the weather warms and the ground softens, earthworms begin to appear, which the Native Americans marked as a sign of the beginning of spring.

The Shushan Purim supermoon will be followed by two more in consecutive months: the second will be on Wednesday, April 8 and the third on Thursday, May 7. The next supermoon will be the morning of September 17, arriving in time to begin Rosh Hashanna, the Hebrew New Year. 

Supermoon: A Sign of New Governments

Rabbi Yosef Berger noted the political significance of the supermoon falling on Purim, Passover, and Rosh Hashanna.

“The moon represents malchut (מלכות; kingship),” Rabbi Berger said. “Every kingdom rises and falls and eventually disappears. Only Israel and the Davidic dynasty is eternal. That is because other kingdoms grab power by virtue of their strength. The moon, kingship, does not have a strength of its own. Like the moon, kings must reflect the glory of the sun, of Hashem (God; literally the name. The only king who did this was King David. And so the Davidic dynasty is eternal, like the glory of God it channels into the world.”

“Purim is where we see the glory of God brought into the world and overcoming an earthly king and the political forces that acted against the Jews. Pesach (Passover) was when Hashem brought the Jews out of Egypt. The only reason he did so was to have the world see that He was our one true king. Rosh Hashanna is when the Jews declare that Hashem is king.”

“We know from the Talmud that the Redemption will come in the months of Adar and Nissan, that is to say, the months of Purim and Pesach.

“A supermoon on all these holidays means that the Davidic dynasty is about to return,” Rabbi Berger concluded. 

The City of Shushan (And Many Other Capitals) Become Confused

It is interesting to note that the city of Purim became “dumbfounded” after King Ahasuerus sent out Haman’s decree to kill the Jews.

Accordingly, written instructions were dispatched by couriers to all the king’s provinces to destroy, massacre, and exterminate all the Yehudim, young and old Esther 3:13

This Shushan Purim supermoon comes at a time when several countries are facing political confusion and upheaval. Israel just completed a third-round election that, through a remarkable and entirely un-anticipatable series of events, should have been scheduled for Purim. Since it is a national holiday, the elections were advanced one week earlier. Perhaps due to their roots in a holiday whose very nature implies confusion, the elections produced ambiguous results. According to most experts, neither Netanyahu nor his opponent, Benny Gantz, will be able to succeed in forming a coalition. The U.S. is currently going through primary campaigns in which the Democrats are most probably going to run their convention without any clear winner to be chosen as the most popular delegate. Many nations, including China, Iran, and even the Vatican, are being confused and challenged by the coronavirus. 

 Purim After the Messiah

The Jewish Sages teach that once Moshiach (Messiah) arrives, none of the Biblical festivals will be celebrated any longer except for Purim. Purim is referred to as the “hidden holiday” since neither God’s name nor His intervention appears in the story of Purim. The name of Esther, the heroine of the story, literally means hidden,

Rabbi Pinchas Winston, a prolific end-of-days author, explains that the distinctive light of Purim, which is embodied in the ability to recognize God even when He is hidden, will never be extinguished.

Purim: A Time When Enemies Become Friends in Redemption

Jews are commanded to drink on Purim until they can no longer tell the difference between Mordechai, the righteous hero, and Haman, the evil villain. The story took place in Persia, a region currently ruled by an evil Iranian regime that is Israel’s greatest enemy. But in the same way that the Book of Esther flips tragedy onto victory, the Sanhedrin sees Iran as a possible key player in the construction of the Third Temple.

The Tomb of Esther and Mordechai

Queen Esther is the iconic and legendary character of the Purim story. Her tomb, and that of the other hero of the story, Morchechai, lies in the Iranian city of Hamadan. Today, the Iranian Jews are known as the children of Esther.

Last month, in an extremely Purim-like case of confusing the villain and the righteous hero,  the Iranian government threatened to demolish the Tomb of Mordechai and Esther and convert the site into a Palestinian consular complex.

“Pandemic Proportions”: COVID-19 Is Starting To Spiral Out Of Control All Over The Globe

March 2, 2020 by Michael Snyder

This is already the most frightening virus outbreak that we have seen in the past several decades, and it appears that it is just getting started.  A week ago, there were about 3,000 confirmed cases outside of China and now there are more than 10,000.  4,812 cases have been confirmed in South Korea, 2,036 cases have been confirmed in Italy, and 1,501 cases have been confirmed in Iran at this point.  Of course by the time you actually read this article those numbers are likely to be significantly higher.  It is like we are watching a really bad Hollywood disaster movie play out right in front of our eyes, and so far every effort to contain this virus has failed.  On Monday, Dr. Anthony Fauci stunned many people when he told NBC News that COVID-19 has likely reached “pandemic proportions”

News of the additional deaths came after Dr Anthony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told NBC News on Monday that the disease had likely reached ‘pandemic proportions’ as 100 cases were confirmed across the U.S.

‘We’re dealing with an evolving situation. We’re dealing with clearly an emerging infectious disease that has now reached outbreak proportions and likely pandemic proportions,’ Dr Fauci said. ‘If you look at multiple definitions of what a pandemic is… multiple sustained transmissions of of a highly infectious agent in multiple regions of the globe.’

Dr. Fauci is definitely not an alarmist, and for him to use the word “pandemic” is a major red flag.

Last week a lot of people were pointing out that not a single American had died from this virus yet, but now six victims have died in the state of Washington alone

Four more people have died of the coronavirus in Washington state, raising the death toll in the state and the nation to six, health officials said Monday.

Jeffrey Duchin, a health officer in King County and Seattle, said at a news conference Monday that five of the deaths were people from King County and one was from Snohomish County, north of Seattle.

If you live in the Seattle area, you need to understand that you are in the middle of a crisis zone.  As I discussed yesterday, it is likely that the virus has been circulating in that region for weeks, and each day the number of potential carriers will only get higher.

At this point, local officials are specifically warning everyone to “avoid crowded settings if possible”

“To increase your chances of staying healthy, avoid crowded settings if possible,” King County Public Health said on Twitter. “Especially if you are over 60, or have other chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, or a weakened immune system.”

There’s particular concern about the spread of the virus in nursing homes. One such  facility, Life Care Center in Kirkland, Washington, said in a statement that one of its residents and one of its associates have been diagnosed with COVID-19. The center is banning visitors for now.

And this doesn’t mean that you will need to change your behavior for a few days or even a few weeks.

At a minimum, if you live in the Seattle area you are going to want to avoid crowded settings for the next several months.

Of course it is just a matter of time before other major cities are facing similar outbreaks.  In recent days the number of states with confirmed cases has grown quite a bit larger

  • Arizona – 1
  • California – 20
  • Florida – 2
  • Illinois – 4
  • Massachusetts – 1
  • New York – 1
  • Oregon – 3
  • Rhode Island – 2
  • Washington state – 18 (includes 6 fatalities)
  • Wisconsin – 1

Unfortunately, this list probably only represents the very small tip of a very large iceberg.  Up until just recently, the CDC was mandating that the only people that should be tested are those that have traveled to China or those that have had close contact with a known victim.  By using such restrictive criteria, the number of Americans being tested was kept extremely low, and a lot of infected people slipped through the cracks.

Now this virus has escaped containment, and authorities are telling us that “community spread” is inevitable all over the United States.

Meanwhile, COVID-19 continues to sweep across much of the rest of the planet like wildfire.

In Iran, the fact that a top adviser to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei just died from the virus made headlines all over the globe

AN adviser to Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has died of coronavirus, state media reported today.

Mohammad Mirmohammadi, 71, died in hospital in Tehran as the pariah nation reels from a worsening outbreak that has left several senior officials in hospital.

But despite the fact that the number of confirmed cases in Iran is escalating at an exponential rate, and despite the fact that dozens of Iranians have already died, many Iranians continue to engage in the practice of “kissing and licking Shi’ite shrines throughout the country”

Videos spreading on social media are showing Iranians kissing and licking Shi’ite shrines throughout the country as many call to close the shrines amid a severe coronavirus outbreak in the Islamic Republic.

The epicenter of the outbreak in Iran, Qom, is a religious city home to several shrines. The shrines remain open as some reports place the death toll in Iran in the hundreds.

Can you believe that?

We live at a time when it seems like much of the world has gone nuts.  Most people believe whatever they feel like believing, and most people do whatever they feel like doing.  But there are always consequences for our actions, and I have a feeling that this virus is going to spread particularly rapidly in the Middle East.

Here in the United States, it appears that this outbreak is far more extensive than we are being told.  As the U.S. starts to finally ramp up testing, it is inevitable that a lot more existing cases will be found.  In fact, in just a little while I will be posting an article on End Of The American Dream about an ER doctor in New York that is claiming that there is “going to be thousands” of confirmed cases inside this country by next week.

I don’t think that it is going to happen quite that rapidly, but it appears to be inevitable that the number of cases is going to be steadily rising.

This is not a drill.  This is an exceedingly dangerous virus that is killing people all over the planet, and we need to prepare for a scenario in which this crisis could extend for many months or even for several years.

Mazel Tov! With High Voter Turnout, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Easily Defeats Benny Gantz With 60-Seat Bloc Win In Israel Tonight

qThe outright victory in the third election in under a year is expected to enable Netanyahu to quickly form a right-wing coalition after having headed a caretaker government since December 2018. Netanyahu spoke to the heads of the parties in his camp immediately after the exit polls were announced and agreed to form a strong nationalist government as soon as possible.

by Geoffrey Grider March 2, 2020

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu succeeded in winning 60 seats for his bloc of right-wing and religious parties in Monday’s election, one less than he needed for a majority in the Knesset, according to exit polls on the 3 TV networks.

Ahh, victory is surely sweet, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is drinking in his amazing defeat of Benny Gantz in an unprecedented third election in Israel today. Obviously God has more yet to do with Netanyahu, and this win, to me, is prescient of our upcoming November elections.

“And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” Genesis 32:28 (KJB)

Pray for Israel, pray for Prime Minister Netanyahu, because though he is relishing his victory tonight, tomorrow he will be once again face to face with his enemies who seek to do anything to get rid of him. He faces a criminal trial on what seem to be unsubstantiated charges of corruption, not unlike the Democrats who tried to impeach President Trump on equally-weak charges. Pray that God will give Netanyahu the victory there as well. Am Yisrael Chai!

Benjamin Netanyahu Defeats Challenger Benny Gantz With Striking 60-Seat Bloc in Knesset

FROM THE JPOST: The polls indicated that Netanyahu’s Likud won 36-37 seats. Its allies in Shas, UTJ and Yamina won 9, 7-8 and 6-7 respectively. The polls showed Blue and White with 33 seats, its ally Labor-Gesher-Meretz 6-7, the Joint List 14-15 and Yisrael Beytenu 6-8.

The numbers are expected to change overnight. The votes of soldiers, who tend to lean to the right, have not yet been counted and the Joint List tends to go down a seat when the soldiers’ votes are added. But, if the Right does not obtain its 61st seat, it could end up being because the far-right Otzma Yehudit refused Netanyahu’s repeated requests to quit the race.

Netanyahu immediately tweeted “thank you.”

The outright victory in the third election in under a year is expected to enable Netanyahu to quickly form a right-wing coalition after having headed a caretaker government since December 2018.

Netanyahu spoke to the heads of the parties in his camp immediately after the exit polls were announced and agreed to form a strong nationalist government as soon as possible. Sources in Likud said he would even try to get a government in place before his criminal trial begins on March 17.

Blue and White MKs expressed disappointment with the results but said they did not expect the party to break up. They dismissed speculation that Blue and White leader Benny Gantz would quit politics. Gantz thanked his supporters and told them: “I will continue to struggle for our ideology for you.”

Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman responded: “We have to wait for the final results. Yisrael Beytenu won’t compromise a millimeter from what it promised its voters.” The high turnout in the country’s unprecedented third election in under a year showed no signs of voter apathy, as citizens cast ballots in an attempt to end the political stalemate.

The voter turnout was 71%, up from 69.83% in September and 68.46% in April. There were more than 200,000 voters casting ballots on Monday who had not voted in September.

Jesus is Coming Soon; Most are Not Ready :: By Daymond Duck

Published on: March 1, 2020 by RRadmin7 Category:Daymond Duck, General Articles

One, God said, “If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (II Chron. 7:13-14).

Notice the words “no rain,” “locusts” and “pestilence.”

The drought in Australia has caused the smallest harvest ever recorded there; the locusts are spreading from Africa to the Middle East, India, Pakistan and China; and the Coronavirus pestilence is spreading from China to So. Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Italy (notice no rain, locusts and pestilence).

God’s solution is humility, prayer, seeking Him and repentance.

Concerning the Coronavirus, it should not be taken lightly. It is very dangerous (perhaps more dangerous than we know); the suffering and hardship are great. But obey God, look up and be thankful because there have been no deaths in the U.S. at the time of this writing (and 97% or so of the Chinese victims have survived).

Remember that the Jews that obeyed God by putting the blood of a lamb on the side posts and upper posts at the front door of their houses were protected from the tenth plague, and the 144,000 that will be sealed by God during the Tribulation Period will be protected from the plagues (Gen. 12:7; Rev. 7).

The gates of Hell will not prevail against the Church.

Two, there will be famine and a global economic collapse after the Rapture (Rev. 6:5-6).

It has been reported that the locusts in Africa are devouring enough crops to feed 35,000 people a day and the Coronavirus has millions of people shut up in their homes, not working and not able to pay their bills; factories, malls, restaurants and hotels closed; banks closing or being bailed out, etc.

On Feb. 24, 2020, the Dow Jones Stock Market lost more than 1,000 points.

God may be showing us what plagues can do, that His Word is true and that the need to accept Jesus is great.

Three, in 2001, Israel decided to build an underground high-speed railroad from the Ben-Gurion International Airport to downtown Jerusalem.

In 2016, the railroad was almost complete, and Israel decided to extend it to the Temple Mount and to build a railroad station there to accommodate visitors.

In 2017, Israel decided to name the railroad the King David Railroad because King David made Jerusalem the capital of Israel.

Israel also decided that the train station near the Temple Mount will be called the Donald J. Trump Station because Pres. Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The design work is now complete, and Israel will dig a 1.8-mile long tunnel under downtown Jerusalem (and the old city of Jerusalem) to the Temple Mount. (There is no information on how long this is expected to take.)

Four, according to the Bible, Israel will have silver and gold, cattle and goods in the latter years and latter days (Ezek. 38:8, 12, 16).

Israeli farmers and ranchers have been raising and selling cattle to the Palestinians. In Sept. 2019, the PA launched a boycott of Israeli beef.

The boycott has been settled and Israel will sell 120,000 head of cattle to the PA each month (more than 1.4 million head per year).

Five, according to the Bible, Jerusalem will have to be expanded to accommodate all of the Jews at the end of the age (Zech. 2:1-13).

On Feb. 19, 2020, Prime Min. Netanyahu announced that he has approved permits to build 6,200 housing units in two suburbs of Jerusalem.

Six, some are teaching that we are in the Tribulation Period.

God may be giving us a glimpse of the Tribulation Period, but we are not in the Tribulation Period.

The Church is still here, the world government and world religion do not yet exist, the covenant with many does not exist, people are not being forced to take the Mark, etc.

We are seeing a convergence of the signs, and they are a reminder that we are getting close.

Seven, many readers of Rapture Ready know who Jan Markel, J.D. Farag and Amir Tsarfati are.

Jan reported that she learned from Brent Miller, Jr., the producer of the movie, that a Lifeway Research study found that “98% of the church will not talk about the glorious news that Jesus will return any moment.”

Think about that: according to the Bible, the Rapture is our blessed hope and 98% of those that call themselves Christians don’t talk about it (Titus 2:13).

Perhaps that is why it will come upon the world like a snare, and so many Christians think prophecy teachers are fanatics.

Jesus is coming soon and most are not ready.

Challenge Issued to BDS: Through A Miraculous Coincidence, Israel May Have Coronavirus Vaccine Ready in 90 Days

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 28, 2020 , 2:18 pm

“All kinds of trees for food will grow up on both banks of the stream. Their leaves will not wither nor their fruit fail; they will yield new fruit every month, because the water for them flows from the Temple. Their fruit will serve for food and their leaves for healing.” Ezekiel 47:12 (The Israel Bible™)

An Israeli company announced on Thursday that it may develop a vaccine for the coronavirus within a few weeks and another Israeli company has a diagnostic kit ready to go.

Maayan Jaffe-Hoffman of J-Post reported on Thursday that Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis announced that the vaccine may be ready in a few weeks and will be ready for use by the general public in as little as 90 days.

“Congratulations to MIGAL [The Galilee Research Institute] on this exciting breakthrough,” Akunis said. “I am confident there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat,” Akunis said, referring to the respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus.

If the team succeeds in discovering the vaccine, it will be the product of amazing serendipity. The company wrote on its website that they have been working for the past four years towards developing a vaccine against a form of coronavirus which infects chickens called avian coronavirus Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV). 

“Our basic concept was to develop the technology and not specifically a vaccine for this kind or that kind of virus,” said Dr. Chen Katz, MIGAL’s biotechnology group leader, told J-Post. “Let’s call it pure luck. We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”

From research conducted at MIGAL, it has been found that the poultry coronavirus has high genetic similarity to the human COVID-19, and that it uses the same infection mechanism, a fact that increases the likelihood of achieving an effective human vaccine in a very short period of time.

The vaccine’s effectiveness has been proven in pre-clinical trials carried out at the Volcani Institute. MIGAL has now made required genetic adjustments to adapt the vaccine to COVID-19, the human strain of coronavirus, and is working to achieve the safety approvals that will enable in-vivo testing, enable the initiation of production of a vaccine to counter the Coronavirus epidemic. 

Commenting on the news, David Zigdon, CEO of MIGAL GALILEE RESEARCH INSTITUTE, said, “Given the urgent global need for a human coronavirus vaccine, we are doing everything we can to accelerate development. Our goal is to produce the vaccine during the next 8-10 weeks, and to achieve safety approval in 90 days. This will be an oral vaccine, making it particularly accessible to the general public. We are currently in intensive discussions with potential partners that can help accelerate the in-human trials phase and expedite the completion of the final product development and regulatory activities.”

Minister Akunis instructed the Director-General of the Ministry of Science and Technology to fast-track all approval processes with the goal of bringing the human vaccine to market as quickly as possible.

In conjunction with this miraculous discovery, another Israeli firm announced on Thursday that its biomedical division developed a new rapid and accurate diagnostics kit for the COVID-19 novel coronavirus. BATM Advanced, a leading provider of technologies for medical laboratory system based in Hod Hasharon, said in a release that “the kit has undergone testing by several central laboratories and hospitals that have now verified its ability to diagnose COVID-19.”

“This kit has undergone testing by several central laboratories and hospitals that have now verified its ability to diagnose COVID-19,” the company said in a statement. “The Group has commenced production of the kit at its Adaltis facility in Rome. BATM is working with academic and research institutions, mainly in Europe, to progress the kit to make it at a price point suitable for large scale production. The kit, which supports all the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations, has already received interest from customers in several countries.”

The current methods being used to test for the virus is an involved process that takes several days at least. There have been more than 80,000 cases of Covid-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, and 2,700 deaths.

The virus was named for its appearance. During their research, scientists used microscopes to photograph the virus and the name comes from its shape, which resembles a crown when imaged, a fact which led Rabbi Aryeh Lipo, a religious studies teacher who ran for the Likud in 2014, to an insight on the cause of the pandemic.

‘corona’ means, in every language, a crown,” Rabbi Lipo said. “The disease has come to remind us that the true crown of the world is missing. What will stop the coronavirus  was taught to us by King David.”

And David built there a mizbayach to Hashem and sacrificed burnt offerings and offerings of well-being. Hashem responded to the plea for the land, and the plague against Yisrael was checked. II Samuel 24:24

“May it be God’s will that we merit to build a crown and palace for the One King,” Rabbi Lipo said. “God willing, this crown will protect the world from the corona.”

Using an electron microscope. Corona is Latin for ‘Crown’.

American Jewish Committee CEO David Harris threw down the gauntlet to the Boycott Divestment Sanctions (BDS) movement in a tweet.

Seth Mandel,  a conservative American author who is Jewish, tweeted a taunt to the BDS movement.

10 Ancient Sites That Might Be Stargates, Portals And Wormholes

Marcus Lowth

Many ancient cultures speak of portals to other worlds and gateways to star systems where their “creators” reside. Conventional wisdom tells us these tales are merely myths and legends. However, recent declassified FBI files have stated that our Earth has been visited by beings from other dimensions and planets. NASA has announced that “portals” do indeed appear to be hidden within the Earth’s magnetic field, making some wonder if the legends of stargates, portals and wormholes may have some degree of truth to them.

10 Gate Of The Gods, Hayu Marca, Peru

In 1996, it was discovered by Jose Luis Delgado Mamani while he was trying to learn the layout of the area for a job he had recently taken as a tour guide. The “Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca in Peru is said by native tribes to have once acted as a “gateway to the land of the Gods.” Mamani even claims that he had dreams of the doorway for years before he had accidentally found it. In his dream, Mamani stated that the pathway leading to the doorway was made of pink marble, and had also witnessed a smaller door that was open with a “brilliant blue light coming from what looked like a shimmering tunnel.”

The “doorway” is actually two doorways, almost in a “T” shape. The larger doorway measures seven meters wide and seven meters high (22 ft by 22 ft) while the smaller one stands two meters high (6.5 ft) in the middle of the base. Legends state that the larger door is for the gods, themselves. The smaller door is for mortals to pass through, and some heroic mortals did, becoming immortal themselves to live among the gods.

One legend of a mortal passing through the doorway appears to lend a little credibility to Mamani’s alleged dream. The story says that when Spanish explorers arrived in Peru in the 16th century, looting Inca riches as they went, an Incan priest named Amaru Maru fled his temple with a valuable golden disk—“The Key of the Gods of the Seven Rays.” Amaru Maru found the doorway and saw it was guarded by Shaman priests. He presented to them the golden disk, and following a ritual performed by the priests, the smaller doorway opened. Behind it was a tunnel that shone with great blue light. Amaru Maru passed into the doorway, left the disk with the Shaman priests, and vanished from Earth to the land of the gods.

Interestingly, investigators did discover a small, round, indention in the rock on the right hand column of the smaller doorway. The examinations led them to believe that should a disk shaped object be “inserted” into the indention, it would be held in place by the surrounding rock.

9 Abu Ghurab, Egypt, The Place Of The Gods

The Abu Sir Pyramids, site of Abu Ghurab, has claimed to be one of the oldest sites on the planet. Within Abu Ghurab, lies an ancient platform made of alabaster (Egyptian crystal) and is said to be in tune with the “vibration” of Earth. It can also “open the senses” in order for a person to communicate and “be one” with higher, sacred energies of the Universe. Essentially, it is a stargate and the sacred energies were the Neters (gods).

Interestingly, legends of their communication and way of travel between their world and ours almost mirrors the legends of the Cherokee Native Americans. The Cherokee tell of how “thought beings”—who are formless—would travel on a “wave of sound” from their home in the Pleiades Star System to Earth.

As the legends of Abu Ghurab being a stargate, there are also signs of what some would perceive to be advanced technology having been used to create the site. One example is the perfectly precise circular markings that have been drilled into the alabaster.

8 Ancient Stone Arrangement In Lake Michigan

In 2007, while searching for the remains of shipwrecks, scientists discovered a stone structure 12 meters (40 ft) below the surface of Lake Michigan. Thought to be 9,000 years old, the structure has been dubbed Michigan’s equivalent of Stonehenge. The discovery was made by professor of underwater archaeology at Northwestern Michigan University, Mark Holley, and his colleague, Brian Abbott. One thing of particular interest was a carving on one of the stones of a mastodon—which is believed to have become extinct 10,000 years ago—a possible indication of the structure’s age.

The location of the site has been kept secret, at least for now. This is part of an agreement with the local Native American tribes who wish to keep the amount of visitors to a minimum. While a lot of mainstream scientists are skeptical about the age of the site, and if it even has any relevance, many believe that it is the remains of a stargate or wormhole. The site has also claimed several bizarre disappearances and gained the title of “The Michigan Triangle.”

In 1891, a schooner named the Thomas Hume vanished into thin air along with all seven of it’s crew while sailing on the lake. In 1921, the 11 people who were aboard the Rosa Belle disappeared without a trace, but their boat was found floating lifelessly in the water. In 1937, while on board the O.M. McFarland as it made its way along Lake Michigan, Captain Donner retired to his quarters to get some much needed rest after a long shift on deck. Three hours later, the second mate went to wake his captain. Finding the door locked from the inside, and with no response from the captain, he eventually broke down the door to the room. With the captain’s quarters empty and with all the windows locked shut, Captain Donner had simply vanished.

7 Stonehenge, Wiltshire, England

One of the most well-known structures on the planet, if only by name, is the ancient rock formation known as Stonehenge. It is also one of the most contested and debated sites in history, both as to when it was built and to what its true purpose might have been. Mainstream historians claim that the famous arrangement was built around 5,000 years ago, partly from bluestones that were quarried from a site 386 kilometers (240 mi) away. To some though, this notion is absurd.

Geologist Brian John states that there been no evidence for this claim and no evidence that the alleged quarry even existed. It is said that when the first settlements were built in the area, 5,000 years ago, Stonehenge was already there and fully built. The ancient site is said to sit where 14 ley lines converge and some feel, along with other similar ancient sites, this essentially makes it an energy portal or stargate.

At least one incident in recent history may support this seemingly crazy theory. In August 1971, a group of hippies apparently disappeared at Stonehenge while trying to tap into the “vibrations” of the site.At around 2 o’clock in the morning, without any warning, lightning bolts suddenly struck and a severe storm was unleashed onto the area. According to the story, a policeman who happened to be on duty and in the area, recalls seeing a “blue light” coming from the stones – a local farmer also stated he saw this. Screams could be heard from the area. By the time the policeman had made his way to the site, all that remained was the odd tent peg from the reveler’s tents and the damp remains of a campfire.

6 The Ancient Sumerian Stargate At The Euphrates River

There is a famous Sumerian seal that shows a Sumerian god appearing from a portal of his world into ours. The god appears to be on a staircase that is moving away from the person viewing the seal. On each side of the emerging god, there are strange shimmering columns of water. Another Sumerian artifact that claims to show evidence of stargates is that of Ninurta. Ninurta not only appears to be wearing a modern day wristwatch, but is also using his finger to press what appears to be a button on the wall of the gateway he is standing in.

Author Elizabeth Vegh has written several books on the ancient Sumerian gods and kings and their alleged use of stargates in ancient times. One of her main conclusions is that there is a stargate in the Euphrates River, and has been buried and lost under the ruins of the Mesopotamian city of Eridu for thousands of years. Vegh also states that the biblical verse in Chapter 9 of the Book of Revelations speaks of this stargate. The verse reads, “(1)Then the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, and I saw a star that had fallen from heaven to earth, and it was given the key to the pit of the abyss. (2)The star opened the pit of the abyss, and smoke rose out of it like the smoke of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened by the smoke from the pit. (3)And out of the smoke, locusts descended on the earth . . . ”

Although most scholars would agree that the word “abyss” refers to a large body of water, Vegh argues that, as its used in ancient texts, it is more likely to have a meaning more akin to portal.

5 Tiahuanaco, Bolivia, ‘Gate of the Sun’

Believed by some to be a portal to the land of the gods, the “Gate of the Sun” in Bolivia shares much of its legends with other similar sites in the Andes region. Tiahuanaco city is said to be one of the most important sites of ancient America, with legends stating that the Sun god, Viracocha, appeared in Tiahuanaco and made it “the place of creation”—the place he chose to start the human race.

Carved from one block of stone and thought to be 14,000 years old, the gateway displays what appears to be human beings with “rectangular helmets”. This has led many researchers to state the purpose of the gate is indeed connected to something astronomical, although this is hotly debated. The top-middle of the arch features a carving of the supposed sun god and shows what look to be rays of light appearing behind and forcing their way around all sides of the deities head.

Although it now stands upright, when it was found by European explorers in the mid-1800’s, it was said to have been lying horizontally. It also appears to have a large crack to the top right of the arch. It is unknown how this happened.

4 Ranmasu Uyana Stargate, Sri Lanka

Carved on a massive piece of stone wall and mostly hidden between the boulders and cave systems of Ranmasu Uyana, is what is believed to be a star map or star chart. The symbols carved on the rock are said to be a code that opens the star gate and allows the opener to travel from this world to other areas of the universe. Directly opposite the star map, are four stone seats or chairs.

The name of the star chart is Sakwala Chakraya, which is believed to mean “The rotating circle of the Universe.” According to Sinhala interpretation, Sakwala means universe and Chakraya means a rotating circle or disc.

In many ancient Native American legends, stargates or portals were represented by rotating circles. Similar star maps have also been found in other ancient sites said to be stargates, such as the Abu Ghurab in Egypt and many more ancient sites in the Andes of South America. Yet, mainstream historians disregard the notion that the Sakwla Chakraya is a portal or stargate.

3 Abydos, Egypt

One of the oldest cities of Ancient Egypt, Abydos is perhaps one of the most important sites in Egyptology and certainly one of the most interesting. In particular, the Temple of Seti I appears to show hieroglyphs of modern flying machines, such as a helicopter, as well as what some would describe as a flying saucer.

Perhaps even more amazing is how a lot of the site was discovered. A lady named Dorothy Eady had claimed to be the reincarnation of an Egyptian peasant girl named Bentreshyt and was the secret lover of Pharaoh Seti. She had become pregnant with his child, but before he could learn of the pregnancy, the peasant girl took her own life. Now in the 20th century, Dorothy was able to transcribe ancient Egyptian texts and even knew where the archaeologists should dig to excavate the remains of the ancient city. She seemingly knew where everything was, such as where secret chambers were and the location of gardens that had long since been buried. By the time they discovered precisely where she said they would be, people very much believed she was genuine.

Strangely, people also witnessed Dorothy pressing on certain stones in the walls, as if she was expecting something to happen when she did so. It was as if she was trying to open a secret door or gateway. In fact, she had already spoken about these hidden doors that used to be there. In 2003, Michael Schratt, a military aerospace engineer, stated that Abydos did sit on a naturally occurring stargate. Even more controversially, that the US government was very much aware of this and had actually utilized it.

Was this what Eady was looking for when she was pressing stones in the walls? Aside from the unusual helicopter hieroglyphs, comparisons have been made to the paintings of Egyptian boats that were said to carry its passengers to the next world in the stars, being very similar to how modern day scientists would portray a wormhole, or at least the theory of one.

2 Gobekli Tepe, Turkey

Regarded as the oldest stone temple in the world, the Gobekli Tepe site features several rings of huge “T” shaped stone pillars, each engraved with a carving of an animal such as a lion or a sheep. Two of the pillars sit in the middle of these circles, almost creating an archway of sorts. The archway within these circles are said to be the remains of portals or stargates, which the ancient people who resided here used as a portal to the “sky world.”

The “T” columns are very similar to the “Gate of the Gods” at Hayu Marca in Peru. Interestingly, the Inca people spoke of a connection to the people from the Pleiades star system, which is also T-shaped. Like other alleged portals, Gobekli Tepe is situated where two ley lines meet. Although the site was recorded as far back as the 1960’s, it wasn’t until the the mid-90’s when the T-Shaped pillars were discovered. As for its true age, estimations date it around 12,000 years old.

1 Sedona Vortexes And The ‘Doorway of the Gods’

Sedona, a small town in Arizona was once known by the Native American tribes as Nawanda, and at one time, a most sacred city to them. It is said the Red Rocks of the deserts that surround the small town can create vortexes with the capability of transporting people to another realm or dimension. Native Americans believed these rocks were spiritually charged, while sounds emanating from them have been reported. In the mountains of Arizona, claims to be the “Doorway of the gods”—a strange stone arch portal to another time and space.

In the 1950’s, a local tribesman was aiding treasure hunters who were searching for gold in the mountains. He told them a story of his people, dating back to the 1800’s, of three tribesman who had discovered the archway while riding in the desert. The story goes that when one of them walked through, he simply disappeared. The other two, believing they had encroached on sacred land, fled the scene.

The helpful tribesman stated he had also seen a strange incident at the alleged doorway. While out in the desert, a sudden rain storm hit the area and turned the skies grey with clouds. As he turned to leave, he caught a glimpse of the archway, and saw that the skies through the arch were clear blue. He walked closer to it, seeing that the archway’s image of the mountain range was the same and the only difference was the sky. However, he too, became scared, mounted his horse and returned home.

He told the treasure hunters that only his people knew of the stories. He had only spoke of it because they had shown him kindness and to serve warning to not walk through the archway should they come across it.

‘Typhoid Mary’ Infected 51 People Without Showing Symptoms: Now We Have Evidence ‘Coronavirus Mary’s’ Are On The Loose And ‘Untraceable Outbreaks’ Are Happening Around The World

Was This Pandemic Forecast In The Apocalyptic Denver International Airport Murals?

By Stefan Stanford – All News Pipeline – Live Free Or Die


Two stories published within the last few days underscore why this Coronavirus ‘pandemic’ can be the stuff of medical, political and humanitarian nightmaresWhile officially as of this moment, this ‘outbreak’ has not been labeled a ‘pandemic’, these two stories show us why it soon will be. 

According to this new story at the NY Post, ‘untraceable’ coronavirus cases have emerged in three countries; cases where people have fallen ill to the virus but authorities have been unable to trace it back to anyone who had either lived in or visited China recently or had met with someone who recently had visited China. 

The second story from the International Business Times proves that the world may have a number of ‘super spreaders’ on the loose as we had reported in this February 11th ANP story, but with a ghastly addition.

As the IBT story reported, while 10 towns in Italy have now been quarantined (now up to 12 and that number sure to grow in the days ahead) with all public gatherings banned completely, including church services, carnivals, dances and sporting events, after a cluster of coronavirus cases emerged among a group of people who had attended a bar together, including 5 doctors, one member of that group had dinner earlier this month with a man who had visited China in January, and had later shown flu-like symptoms, but has since tested negative for the virus, Italian media said. 

It had already reported that doctors had confirmed that ‘asymptomatic’ people could have this virus, be contagious to others while showing no symptoms themselves or even know they are sick. With what’s happening in Italy reminding us immediately of Typhoid Mary’, who was the first person in the United States identified as an asymptomatic carrier of the pathogen associated with typhoid fever, of note: Mary Mallon was presumed to have infected 51 people, three of whom died, over the course of her career as a cook. She was twice forcibly isolated by public health authorities and died after a total of nearly three decades in isolation.

So with evidence out of Italy that a man who had visited China, was testing negative for the virus, but he was also the likely source of 15 people getting infected by the outbreak in Italy, and now untraceable coronavirus cases in South Korea, Singapore and Iran, those who aren’t paying attention to what’s now happening should listen to the words of those now being struck by it and outside of China with quarantines now in Europe.  

Codogno mayor Francesco Passerini said the news of the cases “has sparked alarm” throughout the town south of Milan.

The 38-year old, who works for Unilever in Lodi, was in a serious condition in intensive care.

A football friend of his, the son of a bar owner in Codogno, has also tested positive, along with three regulars at the bar. The three, all of whom are retired, live in the small town of Castiglione d’Adda.

The mayor there said the locals were “extremely worried” about the spread of the deadly disease.


And with COVID-19 able to be spread by those who aren’t showing any symptoms and have tested negative for the virus and now cells of cases breaking out in parts of Europe, Asia and the Middle East that can’t be traced back to any specific person, we’ll be taking a look within the rest of this story at a very interesting theory on coronavirus that ties into the ‘apocalyptic murals’ at the Denver International Airport as well as more concerning news that hint this monster may have been intentionally released to cause maximum damage. 

(ANP FUNDRAISER! Following Susan Duclos’ heart attacks and hospitalization, All News Pipeline will need some financial help in the months ahead. So if you like stories like this, please consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this ‘Info-war’ for America at a time of systematic censorship and widespread corruption.)

According to stories over at CNBC, Live Science, the NY Times, and Science News among others, coronavirus seems to be sparing one group of people; children. As Science News reports, very few infants seem to be getting sick with the new coronavirus and scientists aren’t sure why kids seem to be more protected. 

A new study that tallied cases of infants hospitalized with the virus in China from December 8 to February 6 found only nine. The children, aged 1 to 11 months old, had fevers, cough or other mild respiratory symptoms. None developed severe complications from the disease, now known as COVID-19, Zhi-Jiang Zhang of Wuhan University and colleagues report online February 14 in JAMA.

The results could mean that babies are less susceptible to the virus or may just have a lower risk of being exposed, the researchers note. It’s also possible that babies who do become sick have such a mild case that they aren’t seen by a doctor. All of the infants identified had at least one infected family member and became sick after their relatives fell ill.


And while we don’t have the answers as to why children are showing much more resiliency to this pandemic than those who are older, one theory floating around that we have to take a look at is the possibility that it was ‘designed’ that way, to spare the younger generation’s whose minds can still be ‘molded’ into the globalists satanic mindset  

We already have proof the US military has developed race-specific biological weapons via ‘genetic engineering’ and while we cannot prove at this moment that COVID-19 was engineered by China or even the ‘deep state’ here in the US to target a specific group of people or avoid the young, as this recent story over at Natural News had reported, there is no doubt, despite what the msm will report, that this beast has been genetically manipulated as this virus ‘cannot be naturally found in nature’

We now have bombshell, smoking gun evidence that the CoVid-19 “Wuhan” coronavirus was specifically engineered as an offensive biological warfare weapon, designed to target to exterminate human beings.

A new study published in the peer-reviewed journal Antiviral Research (Vol. 16, April 2020) is entitled, “The spike glycoprotein of the new coronavirus 2019-nCoV contains a furin-like cleavage site absent in CoV of the same clade.”

It reveals that the CoVid-19 coronavirus contains unique features that allow it to function as a more efficient weapon system for human-to-human transmission, which helps explain why the virus has been impossible to contain (even under “quarantine” conditions, which have universally failed in China, Japan, Korea and elsewhere).

As the science authors of the paper explain in the full text, “This furin-like cleavage site… may provide a gain-of-function to the 2019-nCoV for efficient spreading in the human population.” 

Further, the science paper finds that there is no known viral ancestry to the CoVid-19 coronavirus, meaning it did not evolve from nature. It was engineered, and the science paper authors also state that the virus contains elements from MERS, stating, “Before the emergence of the 2019-nCoV, this important feature was not observed in the lineage b of betacoronaviruses.”

In this flashback story over at The Vigilant Citizen from 2008 we get one of the best breakdowns of the apocalyptic artwork and murals at the Denver International Airport we could find. From the sinister ‘horse of the apocalypse’ that greets visitors at the airport entrance to the Masonic capstone that references a non-existent group called the ‘New World Airport Commission’, the prophetic murals that lined the walls within the airport spoke of a future apocalypse and the near-extinction of much of the human race.

As seen in the photograph at the top of this section showing a ‘monster’ wearing a gas mask while wielding a sword and weapon against the masses and the ‘dove of peace’, as the Vigilant Citizen story pointed out, these murals appear to show the aftermath of some kind of massive biological/chemical weapons attack. 

The monster has awakened! This big and aggressive militaristic figure is dressed in a Nazi uniform (notice the symbol on the hat) with a face shaped like a gas mask. His hands are holding a rifle and a scimitar that is rather violently molesting the peace-bearing dove. On the left is depicted an endless lineup of crying parents holding their limp, dead baby.

This is a truly atrocious painting, with no redeeming message or moral. The fact that this was displayed at the main gate of the largest airport in America, during the age of political correctness (the nineties) is totally aberrant.

The militaristic figure is glorified and all-powerful, situated at the center of the action. It has regained its powers that it seemed to have lost after WWII. It is back in full force and it’s leading the way to a new holocaust. Look closely at the people on the left and the dead children sleeping on bricks. There is no traces of violence on them. They’re simply devoid of life as if they were poisoned by the deadly gas emanating from the rainbow above them. The monster, protected by his gas mask, is pointing the lineup of victims towards the letter on the bottom left.

And as the Vigilant Citizen story also points out, one of the airport’s other famous murals shows further apocalyptic scenes though the title of the mural seen above is “Peace And Harmony With Nature”. With that title aligning almost perfectly with the ‘1st inscription’ on the mysterious ‘Georgia Guidestones’, “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature”, of note is that for the world to maintain a 500 million population as the Guidestones calls for, more than 7 billion people will have to ‘go’ with a current population of 7.8 billion globally

So the airport’s official website says that the name of the mural is called “Peace and Harmony with Nature”. Really? At the center of the piece, saddened children with extinct animal and plant species. In the background, a forest on fire and further back, a city on fire.

An interesting fact about that city is that it has been retouched and painted over many times during the years as if it represents something important for the creators. It seems surrounded by an ill colored haze as if it was attacked by a biochemical weapon. One of the children holds a Mayan tablet depicting the end of civilization.

At the bottom, of this peaceful painting, we see three open-caskets containing dead girls from different cultures. Left is a Black woman, center is a Native woman. Why are they laying there with the other animals? Are we predicting the extinction of those races?

We already know that the military has developed race-specific chemical weapons. Here’s what the Project for New American Century (PNAC), a think tank that defines the foreign and defense policy of the US has to say about this:

“… the art of warfare … will be vastly different than it is today … “combat” likely will take place in new dimensions … advanced forms of biological warfare that can “target” specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.”


So with much more going on now than we are being told about in China and now this stunning story coming to us from Newsmax reporting President Trump was furious when coronavirus-infected Americans from the Diamond Princess cruise ship were flown home on a flight with healthy American passengers, with the US State Department making that decision and over-ruling the CDC, it’s incredibly easy to understand when people like Mike Adams ask if all of this is intentional and a way to ‘depopulate’ the planet.

As we had reported in this January 27th ANP story titled “Has The ‘Perfect Bioweapon’ Been Unleashed Upon The World? Non-Symptomatic People Being Contagious To Others For Up To Two Weeks Is A Recipe For Disaster – Remember! Every Coronavirus Map You See Will Be Up To 2 Weeks Behind”, one of the major things we were going to have to look out for was people being infected with the virus who’d never been to China or had contact with someone who had been, and with that spread now confirmed, remember this other major point of that story, what we are ‘officially’ seeing now is up to two weeks or even 24 days behind ‘reality’

Each of the first 3 videos below take a look at this coronavirus outbreak, what we might expect in the days ahead and as Mike Adams mentions in the important 1st video below, as independent news readers, we’re getting an advanced notice on this outbreak with much of the dumbed down US population paying more attention to college basketball and ‘JLo’than they are to coronavirus. As Adams warns in the 2nd video, the ‘countdown to the coronavirus day of reckoning for America’ is now with likely nothing to prevent the lockdown of US cities while the 3rd video warns how Wuhan has become the largest martial law drill in history. One to spread to the US?  

So we should use this time to prepare while we still can because once they start locking down businesses, schools and other establishments as even the CDC is now admitting will likely happen in their attempts to ‘contain’ the spread of the virus, it’ll be far too late to prepare. The final video below is a great look at the entire Denver International Airport ‘New World Order’ conspiracy theory.

Not Just CoronaVirus: China Hit with Other ‘Biblical’ Plagues: ‘Micah’s End-of-Days Prophecy’ says Rabbi

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz February 25, 2020 , 1:44 pm

I will set fire to Egypt; Sin shall writhe in anguish and No shall be torn apart; and Noph [shall face] adversaries in broad daylight Ezekiel 30:16 (The Israel Bible™)

Everyone has heard of the coronavirus but the truth is that China is in the midst of dealing with a wave of several plagues. Several Rabbis see this as a replay of the plagues in Egypt in a pre-Messianic manner and place. 

BIBLICAL PROPHECY THAT GOD WILL STRIKE CHINA BEFORE THE MESSIAH

Two weeks ago, Rabbi Yosef Pinto, an internationally acclaimed Israeli mystic rabbi who currently lives in Morocco, made a statement about the coronavirus hitting China. The rabbi cited the Prophet Ezekiel as his source.

I will pour out my anger upon Sin, the stronghold of Egypt, and I will destroy the wealth of No. I will set fire to Egypt; Sin shall writhe in anguish and No shall be torn apart; and Noph [shall face] adversaries in broad daylight Ezekiel 30:15-16

In modern Hebrew, ‘Sin’ (סין) is the name for China. 

CORONAVIRUS

The Chinese government is being very secretive about many details of the virus but what is clear is that the coronavirus, more specifically referred to as Covid-19, is highly contagious. On December 31, the government of China bean treating the first cases of the coronavirus that appeared in the Wuhan province. The first deaths were reported just eleven days later. Ten days later, the virus had spread to other countries in Asia and one day after that, the first case was reported in the U.S. One month after the first cases were reported, the World Health Organization declared a global health emergency and travel restrictions were set in place. More than 75,000 cases of the coronavirus have been confirmed in China and at least 2,200 people have died.  In less than three months, it’s infected almost 78,000 people in more than two dozen countries.

In Hubei Province, where the disease began, the death rate has been about 2.9%. However, in some other provinces where it has been less prevalent, the death rate has been as low as 0.4%. Live Science reported that the death rate soars to 14.8% in those 80 and older; among those ages 70 to 79, the COVID-19 death rate in China seems to be about 8%; it’s 3.6% for those ages 60 to 69; 1.3% for 50 to 59; 0.4% for the age group 40 to 49; and just 0.2% for people ages ten to 39. Nobody under the age of nine has died of this coronavirus to date.

 LOCUSTS

The Biblical plague that once left Egypt bereft and barren is threatening to hit China. Eastern Africa has already been overrun by a swarm of Desert Locusts, creating famine in regions already living on the edge of starvation. The swarm of locusts is the largest suffered by the region in several decades. 

A square mile of a swarm can be formed by up to 210 million locusts, which can eat as much food as 90,000 people in a day. Huge swarms are highly mobile, able to travel up to 90 miles a day if wind conditions are in their favor, Scientists blame unusual weather patterns bringing rains and cyclones that generate intensive breeding cycles.

China has a long and bitter history of locust swarms, with more than 840 being recorded in the official records over the past 2,700 years.

The Chinese government has tried to dismiss the threat with Global Times, a government news service, reporting that “there is little chance of a locust plague expanding in China.” The government suggested that concerned farmers should raise ducks and chickens to control any locusts that come their way. To illustrate the point, the farmland division of the government released “1,000 duck troops” to protect the Xinjiang border.

The government did not mention that the species of locust that is threatening China emits phenylacetonitrile, a foul-smelling secretion that is meant to deter predators. Birds typically do not seek them out as a food source.

The article also suggested the locusts could be fried and consumed by people, noting that some farmers considered the plague of locusts to actually be a blessing.

“Our corn harvest would be reduced for sure, but catching locusts brought me a lot more money,” an anonymous villager told The Beijing News.

Locusts are on restaurant menus in many regions in China. Fresh or frozen locusts are priced from 17 ($2.43) to 400 yuan per kilogram depending on different species and characteristics.

For the Biblically inclined, swarms of locusts evoke images of pre-Exodus Egypt.

They covered the face of the whole land, so that the land was darkened, and they ate all the plants in the land and all the fruit of the trees that the hail had left. Not a green thing remained, neither tree nor plant of the field, through all the land of Egypt. Exodus 10:15

 BUBONIC PLAGUE

Just a few months ago, while the coronavirus was incubating in the wet market of Wuhan, Chinese doctors were struggling to prevent the bubonic plague from bursting forth as an epidemic. Only a handful of cases were diagnosed but the disease has a horrifying history and China is one of the few countries that is threatened by regular epidemics of the disease. 

Bubonic Plague is making a comeback with close to 50,000 human cases being diagnosed in the last two decades. It is now categorized by the World Health Organization as a re-emerging disease. The last outbreak of bubonic plague in the U.S. was in 1924 and was centered in Los Angeles.

The sixth plague in Egypt, boils, may very well have been bubonic plague, whose characteristic symptom is boil-like skin lesions that form black ulcers.

It shall become a fine dust all over the land of Egypt, and cause an inflammation breaking out in boils on man and beast throughout the land of Egypt. Exodus 9:9

The connection between Bubonic Plague and Egypt was proven in 2010 when scientists traced the plague to ancient Egypt. Ancient cultures lived close to their livestock, and the plague was transferred from the animals by fleas. While exploring ruins in Egypt, Egyptologists found 3,000-year-old remains of Nile rats and used fine sieves to discover the remains of fleas, both carriers of the plague.

The plague of שחין (shechin; boils), as are all the plagues that struck Egypt before the Exodus, is prophesied to return in the end-of-days by Zechariah, who described it as a disease of rotting flesh.

As for those peoples that warred against Yerushalayim, Hashem will smite them with this plague: Their flesh shall rot away while they stand on their feet; their eyes shall rot away in their sockets; and their tongues shall rot away in their mouths. Zechariah 14:12

As terrifying as the threat of a natural pandemic is, a reload of the Bubonic Plague may appear as a result of the hand of man rather than the hand of God. Indeed, Bill Gates addressed the Munich Security Conference in 2017, saying that terrorists will use biological weapons to create a pandemic that would kill tens of millions. Gates estimated that such a plot was a “reasonable probability” within 10-15 years and would kill an estimated 30 million people in less than a year.

Also referred to as the Black Death, it has struck as a global epidemic three times. A study in 2010 indicated that it originated all three times in China. Epidemics that may have included the plague killed an estimated 25 million Chinese and other Asians during the fifteen years before it reached Constantinople in 1347. The same pandemic killed approximately one-third of the people in Europe.

With a death rate estimated to be as high as 60%, the Black Plague, was one of the most devastating pandemics in human history, resulting in the deaths of an estimated 75 to 200 million people in Eurasia, peaking in Europe from 1347 to 1351

AFRICAN SWINE FLU

China is the world’s largest pork consumer, accounting for more than half of global pork consumption. The government’s efforts to increase the herd and feed the population is being stymied by an outbreak of African Swine Flu which wiped out more than one-third of the country’s herd. Prices for pork doubled in China over the past year.

THE PLAGUES OF EGYPT IN CHINA

Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s tomb on Mount Zion, noted that such an unnaturally intense wave of natural misfortunes is certainly a reincarnation of the plagues that struck Egypt before the Exodus.

According to Jewish tradition, the ten-plagues will reappear before the Messiah. Rabbi Yosef Berger, the rabbi of King David’s Tomb on Mount Zion, explained this aspect of the Messianic process to Breaking Israel News, quoting the Prophet Micah.

I will show him wondrous deeds As in the days when You sallied forth from the land of Egypt. Micah 7:15

“All of the miracles will reappear, all of the plagues, the entire story, in all its pain and all its glory,” Rabbi Berger said. “But before the Messiah, more plagues that were not seen in Egypt will appear. This is in preparation for the War of Gog and Magog in which God will play an active role, using the awesome forces of nature as his legions.”

“Before He reveals the Messiah, God will show his awesome glory as it has not been seen since the Six-Days of Creation. We cannot even imagine what will be.”

Rabbi Berger noted that it may already be too late for any Jews who were waiting to come to Israel. 

“Many countries, including Israel, are closing their airports because of the dreaded disease,” Rabbi Berger said. “Who could have imagined such a thing just a few months ago? Rabbis have been saying that when the Messiah reveals himself, it will be too late, impossible to come to Israel. We are seeing the very beginnings of this right now.”

Rabbi Berger consulted with several hidden righteous men who informed him that no cure would be found for the coronavirus.

“The nature of the disease is in its name,” Rabbi Berger said. “It’s name means ‘crown’ because it will bring down the might. China, the high-tech giant, is being defeated, not by an army, but by a tiny thing that can’t even be seen.”

The rabbi noted that Tuesday was the beginning of the Hebrew month of Adar, a month in which the Jews are supposed to rejoice due to the holiday of Purim. The rabbi cited Psalms 97, which begins by praising God by noting His fearsome powers in the world.

 Fire is His vanguard, burning His foes on every side. Psalms 97:3

“But people who love Hashem (God, literally ‘the name’) are happy precisely at these times, when God is showing his presence in the world, that the righteous rejoice,” Rabbi Berger said, citing the last verse in that chapter.

O you righteous, rejoice in Hashem and acclaim His holy name! Psalms 97:12

Turkey Threatens “Imminent” Large Scale Invasion Of Idlib To Halt Syrian-Russian Advance

by Tyler Durden

Wed, 02/19/2020 – 22:05

New threats related to Idlib this week could see the Russian and Turkish armies on a direct collision course. 

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday threatened a full-scale military invasion of the war torn province after the Syrian Army and its Russian ally refused to halt their ongoing offensive. 

“An operation in Idlib is imminent,” Erdogan told Turkish parliament of preparations for NATO’s second largest army. “We are counting down, we are making our final warnings”.

“Turkey has completed preparations for the implementation of its plan on Idlib, just like we did with previous operations. Frankly speaking, an operation in Idlib is only a matter of time,” Erdogan said.

He further emphasized that Turkey “is determined to pay any price to ensure security in both Idlib and Turkey.” The Syrian and Turkish armies have been engaged in sporadic fierce clashes for the past two weeks in Idlib, resulting in scores dead and wounded on each side, though specific numbers are disputed. Turkey has acknowledged at least 13 of its national troops killed.

“We will not leave Idlib to the [Syrian] regime, which does not understand our country’s determination, and to those encouraging it,” said Erdogan. Turkey has thus far sent limited deployments of troops and armored convoys into the northwest Syrian province to support and defend a dozen observation posts. 

The Kremlin was quick to respond to such a threat of major escalation, pointing out that any Turkish offensive against Syrian forces in Idlib would be the “worst case scenario”.

“If it will be an operation against terrorist forces in Idlib, that would certainly be within the spirit” of Russia’s agreements with Turkey, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said before adding: “But if it is about an operation against legitimate Syrian armed forces, that would certainly be the worst case scenario.”

Talks between Turkish and Russian officials earlier this week related to Idlib failed to reach any agreement. This after Erdogan and Trump held a phone call wherein both leaders agreed the Syrian-Russian offensive must be halted “immediately”. 

Mainstream media has also begun to again put Idlib coverage front and center as hundreds of thousands of civilians are said to be fleeing. Erdogan has long expressed fears that a million or more refugees could flood across the Turkish border, adding to the already some three million Turkey says it’s hosting. 

UN figures state that at least 700,000 people have been displaced in Idlib since fighting was renewed in early December.
