As The World Is Distracted By COVID-19, A Series Of Large Earthquakes Is Rocking “The Ring Of Fire”

May 10, 2020 by Michael Snyder

Within the past several days, large earthquakes have been striking all along the outer rim of the Pacific Ocean, and many are wondering if all of this activity could potentially be building up to something really big.  Those that follow my work on a regular basis know that I have been deeply concerned about seismic activity on the west coast for a long time, and scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” hits us.  According to Wikipedia, approximately 81 percent of all large earthquakes take place along the Ring of Fire, and of course the west coast of North America accounts for a large stretch of it.  As you can see from this map, the California and Alaska coastlines have been absolutely peppered by quakes in recent days, but nobody is really talking about these quakes because everyone is so focused on COVID-19 right now.

Yes, this pandemic deserves our attention, but I would submit that all of the unusual shaking that has been happening certainly deserves our attention as well.

You may not have heard about it yet, but a magnitude 4.5 earthquake rocked San Diego on Sunday afternoon

A 4.5 magnitude earthquake originating in Imperial County rocked San Diegans from East Village to Lakeside on Sunday afternoon, according to the United States Geological Survey.

The quake struck at 3:07 p.m. in Imperial County about 10.5 miles southeast of Ocotillo Wells, according to the USGS. It had a depth of 10 kilometers or 6.2 miles.

That is a rather large quake for that particular area, and it is just one of hundreds that have been hitting the region.  In fact, CalTech says that there have been 1,227 earthquakes in California and Nevada over the last 7 days.

Meanwhile, the section of the Ring of Fire that runs along the west coast of South America has also been getting hit pretty hard.  A magnitude 5.4 quake struck northern Chile on Sunday, and that really shook a lot of people up.

Subsequently, the portion of the Ring of Fire that runs along the coast of Japan was hit by a magnitude 5.8 earthquake very late on Sunday

The quake hit near the east coast of Honshu at 23.58 UTC on Sunday. The earthquake was reported to have a depth of 80km. It also hit 129km north east of Saitama and also 26km south east of Hitachi, according to emsc-csem. USGS tweeted: “Prelim M5.8 Earthquake near the east coast of Honshu, Japan May-10 23:58 UTC”

And that unusual event in Japan was very quickly followed by a magnitude 5.6 earthquake in Indonesia.

Of course Indonesia sits right along the Ring of Fire as well.

There has been so much shaking in Indonesia recently, but most Americans never hear about it.  Just a few days ago, Indonesia was hit by a magnitude 6.9 earthquake that was so powerful that it was actually felt in Australia

A powerful earthquake in Indonesia has been felt in the Northern Territory.

Residents of Darwin reported online they had felt the shake, which registered as a magnitude-6.9 quake late on Wednesday evening.

The tremor hit the Banda Sea, more than 600km north of Darwin, at a depth of 142km.

So as you can see, there have been significant seismic events all over the Ring of Fire within the past several days.

But it isn’t just the Ring of Fire that has been shaking.  Big earthquakes have been popping up in diverse places all over the globe, and the magnitude 5.1 quake that just hit Iran really surprised a lot of people

A 5.1 magnitude earthquake hit Iran shortly after midnight on Thursday night with its epicenter 34 miles east of the capital city Tehran. AFP reported that panicked residents rushed into the streets, abandoning buildings in fear they would collapse. Two people were killed and 55 injured in the earthquake. The earthquake was followed by eight more mild aftershocks.

And weird earthquakes have been happening in the U.S. as well.

Anyone that follows my work on a regular basis knows that in addition to the west coast I am always watching the New Madrid seismic zone very carefully.

So when two unusual earthquakes hit southern Tennessee on Sunday morning, it definitely got my attention

Two earthquakes were reported back to back in southern Tennessee early Sunday morning, officials say.

Both quakes happened about 4.3 miles southeast of Sewanee, which is near the Alabama border and about 52 miles from Chattanooga, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The first, a 3.1 magnitude, hit at 3:33 a.m. and the second, a 2.8 magnitude, hit at 3:34 a.m.

Without a doubt, there is a whole lot of shaking going on right now.

That does not necessarily mean that a major event of some sort is imminent, and we should certainly hope that the next major event can be put off for as long as possible.

But as I keep warning, the crust of our planet is very unstable, and many have been warning that we should expect that instability to only get worse in the days ahead.

Seismologists have warned us over and over that it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” absolutely devastates the west coast.  They have told us that the San Andreas fault appears to be “locked and loaded” and that it could potentially “unzip all at once”.

And if that actually happens, seismologists have warned that the ground level could suddenly decline by up to 3 feet, and that could potentially result in vast portions of southern California suddenly being way below sea level.

In other words, we are talking about the sort of disaster that most people don’t even want to think about.

Of course very few people ever imagined that a coronavirus pandemic would virtually shut down the entire country, and yet here we are.

We live in very strange times, and I have a feeling that they will soon get a whole lot stranger…

Gog and Magog will Start with a War between America and China’ warns Rabbi

By David Sidman May 4, 2020 , 1:33 pm

O mortal, turn your face toward Gog of the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal. Prophesy against him Ezekiel 38:2 (The Israel Bible™)

In a recent interview, Rabbi Daniel Asor warned that “the United States and China will go to war against each other.” He explains this war was predicted by the secret tzaddik (saint) Rabbi Yehuda Lefkovitch. Rabbi Lefkovitch predicted that the third World War will start between China and America over 20 years ago before the tensions were at the level that they are today. According to Rabbi Lefkovitch, this war will be the Biblical war of Gog and Magog.

“Russia will join China in the war” Rabbi Asor added. At the same time, he points to Rabbi Levi Sa’adia Nachamani who predicted 20 years ago that Iran will wage a war against Israel and will receive military assistance from North Korea.

Rabbi Asor warns that “there will be a lot of incitement blaming Israel for all of the world’s problems.” The reason is because the Arab league will also wage a propaganda war against Israel” he explains and at a certain point they’ll gather the world against Israel as written in Zechariah.

when all the nations of the earth gather against her. In that day, I will make Yerushalayim a stone for all the peoples to lift; all who lift it shall injure themselves. (Zechariah 12:3)

Once the war between America and China is waged, martial law will be enforced which will shut down the highways, sea ports and air travel throughout the USA he explains. “This is why it’s so important for Jewish Americans to leave and come to Israel” he stressed.

Rabbi Asor, the head rabbi of the Yanar Institute in Jerusalem explains that this war will pave the path for the inevitable takeover of the New World Order that is headquartered in the Vatican. He also claims that “in the Vatican, they worship Lucifer.”

Rabbi Asor also says that the Vatican believes that the son of Lucifer will come to redeem humanity. He adds that although Israel’s main battle will be with the Muslims and that Moshicah (Messiah) Ben Yosef will handle it. “But the ultimate war will be against the New World Order which is headquartered in the Vatican. That will be handled by Moshiach (Messiah) Ben David” he explains.

According to Rabbi Asor, the New World Order will implement a divide and conquer strategy whereby they cause the Christians and Muslims to fight against each other over the land of Israel. Each side will want the holy land for themselves. At that point, the Cabal will blame the two religions for crimes against humanity. But ultimately, “they will blame Judaism because it’s the religion that both Christianity and Islam branched off from.”

At this point, according to the rabbi, the New World Order will try to conquer Israel and make Jerusalem its capital. “They will control the world from Jerusalem for nine months. They will duplicate the Vatican on Mount Zion. This way they will be able to control Christianity as they will occupy the room of the last supper as well as King David’s Tomb” he warns.

However Rabbi Asor also delivers a comforting message telling everyone not to fear as this is all part of God’s plan and that the safest place to be at this time is in Israel even though it will be “the eye of the storm.”

Millennials, Gen Zers showing greater interest in Gospel amid COVID-19 pandemic, Greg Laurie says

By Brandon Showalter, CP Reporter  | Friday, April 17, 2020

A megachurch pastor whose Palm Sunday service was watched online by President Trump says that amid the COVID-19 pandemic an increasing numbers of young people are starting to embrace the Gospel.

Due to the public health crisis that’s besetting the United States and other nations around the world, many churches have been livestreaming their services online as large physical gatherings are temporarily halted due to government-issued social distancing orders.

But the move to digital means of worship might portend a Great Awakening, according to Greg Laurie, the longtime pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, who wrote in an op-ed published in Newsweek on Tuesday that he and his team were pleasantly surprised to see that their first week of shifting services to online-only drew over 250,000 viewers and has been growing ever since.

“Last week, we had over a million people tune in for church. These are people literally from all around the world, from every age and background, who are missing church. So, to the best of our ability, we are bringing church to them. What’s more, hundreds of thousands of them are people whom marketers would refer to as the ‘target demographic’ between the ages of 18 and 34.”

Ever since the shutdown began, viewership among millennials has increased 235%, he said. 

Churches have been attempting to reach younger generations with the Gospel for decades, seemingly in vain, Laurie elaborated, highlighting the plethora of news stories and surveys in recent years about declining church attendance and the rise of the “nones” — those who never have or no longer affiliate with any particular religious tradition.

But the worldwide coronavirus outbreak has fundamentally changed the environment.

“Could it be that simply by responding as best and as quickly as we could to something no one saw coming, we’ve unwittingly stumbled into part of God’s answer to a generational riddle?” he asked.

“We touch our phones a shocking 2,617 times a day, and 84 percent say they can’t go a single day without their phone. Most people under 30 can’t even remember a world before cell phones. Perhaps this is why some psychologists refer to millennials as ‘Generation Panic.’ They have been so inundated by a world of unrealistic comparisons and ‘excessive expectations’ online that they are afflicted by ‘a harsh inner critic and an obsessive need to achieve.'”

There’s a lot of information out there about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Christian Post has sorted and picked through articles and resources that we hope will help you stay informed and in the right mindset. Be sure to check back often for new updates!

A millennial friend reportedly told Laurie that he believes it only makes sense that God would bring revival through laptops and phones now and that he had an encounter with God while watching a broadcast in the privacy of his home with no one watching and no pressure to behave or perform.

“But here is the most surprising thing to me about this new, burgeoning online congregation. At the end of my message, I extended an opportunity for people to pray and ask Jesus Christ to come into their lives. At last count, over 31,000 have responded. That’s in four weeks,” Laurie said.

“You’ve heard of ‘life imitating art.’ Well, this is virtual reality becoming actual reality.”

Laurie went on to note that while his congregation is looking forward to gathering physically again they are presently seeing something which looks like a great awakening as they continue to shelter-in-place.

“Let’s hope and pray that it continues. America is long overdue,” Laurie concluded.

The president announced at the end of the April 4 White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing that he would be watching Laurie’s Palm Sunday service. 

Later that day, Trump also tweeted that he would be watching the livestream. In an April 6 tweet, Laurie thanked the president for joining and noted that approximately 1.3 million tuned in to the service and that 11,207 people indicated a desire to know Christ.

China Is Preparing to Start a War with America

By William L. Gensert

Sometime in June 2001, while browsing the Wall Street Journal, I stumbled upon an item on an inside page all the way at the bottom.  It was no more than 75 words in a box.  It covered a CIA security announcement concerning an increase in internet and cell phone traffic among suspected terrorists from suspect areas in the Arab world.  I canceled a Fourth of July trip downtown because of it. 

I assumed that if an attack was coming, it would be on America’s premium self-celebratory holiday, the Fourth of July. 

When nothing happened, I took off my tinfoil hat, ascribing my worries to my suspicion of Islam — suspicions I had carefully curated from prior events such as the first World Trade Center attack, the Cole, the embassy bombings, and the killing of Americans soldiers in the 1983 bombing of the Marine barracks in Beirut.

It has become accepted knowledge that America’s intelligence agencies missed 9/11 warning signs — but that’s not entirely true.  Signs were seen, but they impelled no action.  We were so convinced that the fall of the Soviet Union as the end of history precluded any need for urgency.  Yet, even if there had been, no one, at that point, knew how to react.

I don’t think I need to remind everyone of what happened on 09/11/2001.

I share this vignette as a means of showing that there are always signs.  We, for whatever reason, miss them, or we ignore them for political purposes, or we refuse to believe them because they contradict the core tenets of our belief system.

I believe that China’s actions today may be telegraphing an intent we are choosing to ignore.  They show all the signs of a nation preparing to attack America.  China seeks a bespoke world run by China with “Chinese characteristics” — a dream that under Trump was drifting away.

China appears to be laying the groundwork for a “justified” attack on the United States, perhaps in the South China Sea or perhaps elsewhere.  It will be a military attack, not an act of terrorism, and the excuse will be America’s deliberate transmission of COVID-19 in Wuhan. 

When the Chinese became accusatory, it’s telling that they didn’t blame the CIA, always the usual suspect.  No, they blamed it on American soldiers. 

American military deliberately infecting China is an act of war worthy of a military response.  

In October, the 2019 World Military Games were held in Wuhan.  Chinese media triumphantly trumpeted the Americans winning just eight medals, while China won 239.  It was then that we supposedly infected Wuhan citizens with the “American virus.”

China is now defenestrating foreign media, sending home reporters from the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and Washington Post at just the opportune moment.  No nation wants journalists around when it is planning a sneak attack.

And with its economy ravaged by Trump’s trade war and the virus shutdown, and now back at full production, while America’s economy is in total shutdown and in the grip of an active pandemic, there will never be a better time to attack.

Here in America, the Democrats along with corporate media eagerly buy China’s lies surrounding the nascence of the worldwide pandemic, the propaganda blaming America, the stories of Chinese benevolence, and the efficiency of Chinese methods in getting control of the virus at home.  They are actively supporting China’s version of the truth.  China has every reason to believe they will continue to do so.  

When or if China attacks, the left (the Dems, Antifa, and BLM) will flood the streets with anti-war protesters designed to stop America from responding to China’s attacks.  After all, don’t we deserve it?  We elected Trump, didn’t we?

China claims there are no new infections when there is ample evidence that that claim is a lie.  But the Chinese know that by the time people understand, it will be too late.  They will have struck, and any new cases will be used to bolster their casus belli.  Those Chinese who perish in the interim of silence will have died for the fatherland.

Conservative media have been neither as naïve nor as malicious as their mainstream brethren, often writing that China’s behavior, with the denials and accusations, is merely a clumsy and foolish attempt to convince the world.

I don’t see it this way.  I think China is doing this to convince its own citizens more than anyone else.  The Chinese communists can survive the world’s condemnations, especially if they defeat America, but they live and die by controlling their own population.  When they attack an American naval ship in the South China Sea, they won’t need to worry about the support of their own nation because they will have convinced the people that America started the war and a peaceful and beneficent China was reluctantly, and only as a last resort, defending itself.

China is facing a demographic time bomb and has ten years to rewrite the facts on the ground.  It is facing a quandary of epic proportions.  It won’t be long before it has the oldest population on the planet.  Those people will be old before they are rich.

China’s business model is existentially flawed.  It has extraordinary debt that is multiples of its GDP, having grown exponentially through government funding of empty cities, military buildup, high-speed rail to nowhere, a Belt and Road initiative that’s becoming obvious to partner countries as a means of colonialist extortion, and various other nonproductive government lending to CCP members.  Its vaunted reserves will soon disappear. 

China is also a nation, thanks to the “one child” initiative, that has hundreds of millions of young men with no prospect of marriage.  Hundreds of millions of “incel” men make for either an angry and expendable fighting force or a bane upon society.

China is on the clock.  Today, it is formidable, with a sophisticated and capable military.  The Chinese may be able to win a confrontation, even a war, with the United States.  Under Obama’s policy of surrender, China had a chance of overtaking us economically while growing its military until its primacy was a fait accompli.  But Trump killed that dream with his trade war, exposing the inherent weaknesses of the Chinese economy.  And should the aftermath of the pandemic play out without interference, China’s position in the world will be irreparably damaged.

What does China have to lose? 

Time is not on China’s side.  Unless the Chinese destroy us on the field of battle soon, the clock will run out, and the dream of the coming “Chinese century” will be just that: a dream.

Everything they are doing points to them preparing to do so.

For China, there will never be a better time to start a war with America.

Researchers release report claiming China’s outbreak may have started in September

By ‘It’s like catching an incipient supernova in the act.’, The Western Journal
Published April 19, 2020 at 5:33pm

A new study estimates that the first human cases of COVID-19 in China may have occurred as early as September.

China has admitted that the disease was present in Wuhan, the capital of its Hubei Province, in December, although for weeks into January it denied that human-to-human transmission had already taken place.

Some reports have said that, according to internal Chinese documents not shared with the West, cases of the virus existed as early as November.

But now, according to the U.K. Daily Star, a University of Cambridge geneticist and his research team are arguing even that timetable could be off by as much as two months.

All viruses mutate.  Cambridge geneticist Peter Forster has been tracking the subtle mutations of the novel coronavirus, hoping to find — based on the DNA of the virus in those who were infected in December — how far back the trail of mutations will lead him.

“The virus may have mutated into its final ‘human-efficient’ form months ago, but stayed inside a bat or other animal or even human for several months without infecting other individuals,” Forster said, according to the Daily Star.

“Then, it started infecting and spreading among humans between September 13 and December 7,” he said.

“The viral network we have detailed is a snapshot of the early stages of an epidemic, before the evolutionary paths of COVID-19 become obscured by vast numbers of mutations. It’s like catching an incipient supernova in the act,” he said according to a report on the University of Cambridge’s website.

Forster’s work uses what’s known as phylogenetic network, which maps the global movement of any living thing through the mutation of its genes.

Such a network can “reconstruct infection paths where they are unknown and pose a public health risk,” the study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences said.

The study found that “the first virus genome that was sampled on 24 December 2019 already is distant from the root type according to the bat coronavirus outgroup rooting,” it said.

“What we reconstruct in the network is the first significant spread among humans,” Forster said.

He estimates that by the time the virus reached humans, it had already gone through hundreds of mutations, which leads him to believe that the virus was prevalent in animals for years before it infected humans.

Forster said that based on his research, the virus might not have originated in Wuhan.

“If I am pressed for an answer, I would say the original spread started more likely in southern China than in Wuhan,” Forster said.

“But proof can only come from analyzing more bats, possibly other potential host animals, and preserved tissue samples in Chinese hospitals stored between September and December. This kind of research project would help us understand how the transmission happened, and help us prevent similar instances in the future,” he said.

 The study was a unique use of the research tools that can trace mutations, Forster said.

“There are too many rapid mutations to neatly trace a COVID-19 family tree. We used a mathematical network algorithm to visualize all the plausible trees simultaneously,” he said.

“These techniques are mostly known for mapping the movements of prehistoric human populations through DNA. We think this is one of the first times they have been used to trace the infection routes of a coronavirus like COVID-19,” he said.

Massive Earthquakes, Volcanoes now Erupting Worldwide

By Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz April 13, 2020 , 1:10 pm

“When the storm passes the wicked man is gone, But the righteous is an everlasting foundation.” Proverbs 10:25 (The Israel Bible™)

The waves of earthquakes are rocking the center of the U.S. and the sudden awakening of several volcanoes around the world may be a sign of the pre-Messiah shake-up predicted by the prophets. At the same time, several far more mild earthquakes in Israel seem to embody the Biblical concept of God’s mercy being aroused by Man’s actions.

WAVE OF EARTHQUAKES IN CENTRAL U.S.

The earth seems to be waking up as seismic activity is being reported around the globe. Last month, a 6.5 magnitude earthquake shook Idaho, generating a multitude of avalanches. The quake was the largest in the region since a 6.9 quake hit in 1983. There have been 238 earthquakes in Idaho in the last week according to the U.S. Geological Survey website. Five of those have been substantial in size rating 4.0 to 6.5. Idaho isn’t new to experiencing earthquakes.

Two weeks before Idaho felt the earth move, Salt Lake City, Utah, approximately 340 miles away from the Idaho epicenter, was hit by a 5.7 magnitude earthquake. Since that earthquake, there have been 886 smaller earthquakes and aftershocks in the Salt Lake area. 

The belly of the country is clearly rumbling as the University of Utah Seismograph Station mapped a total of 980 tremors throughout Idaho, Utah and Wyoming since March 18. 

YELLOWSTONE GETS GREENLIGHT DESPITE “PULSATIONS”, OVER 100 EARTHQUAKES

Though the epicenter in Idaho was over 200 miles distant from the Yellowstone caldera, Yellowstone experienced 111 earthquakes in March. The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory released its monthly report on Wednesday, declaring its current alert level “normal” and its aviation color code “green.”

“These earthquakes are caused by tectonic extension of the region and are not related to Yellowstone, nor will they have a significant impact on the Yellowstone system,” the report stated.

This green light was issued despite a large section of the Yellowstone caldera called the Norris Geyser Basin, the hottest, oldest, and most dynamic of Yellowstone’s thermal areas, being discovered as pulsating, inflating and deflating by several inches in erratic bursts. In 2013, the Norris basin rose 5.9 inches for two consecutive years., rising an astonishing five inches in the last 20 years. 

Although the probability of an eruption at Yellowstone may (or may not) be small, the results of such an event would be catastrophic in the extreme. Yellowstone Park is seismically active with more than 10,000 thermal features of which more than 500 are geysers. The Yellowstone caldera is listed as the most dangerous supervolcano in existence and as such, is the most monitored volcano in the world.  It has erupted three times over the last 2 million years, most recently about 70,000 years ago. Yellowstone has produced three cataclysmic eruptions that scientists know of: at 2.08, 1.3, and 0.631 million years ago. 

CONTINENTAL “STRETCHING”

An article in Discover explained the epidemic of earthquakes as being caused by the continent “stretching,” a process described in German as “horst and graben.”

“As North America continues to stretch across the Basin and Range, these faults can generate earthquakes as the valleys continue to drop,” the article explained. “Both of the earthquakes that happened in Nevada and Utah recently were on one of the normal faults that bounded a valley.

VOLCANOES AROUND THE WORLD

But it is not just the central U.S. that is experiencing a seismic awakening. Since January 21, the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland has experienced more than 8,000 earthquakes and about 10 centimeters of land uplift due to magma intrusions underground. Geologists believe the volcanic systems in the region become active about once every thousand years. The last time this region experienced volcanic activity was 800 years ago. Beginning in the tenth century, the volcanically volatile period lasted for 300 years. 

The region is about 30 miles southwest of Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, but is only nine miles away from Iceland’s international airport. A major eruption could shut down travel for all of Iceland as well as endanger the nearby town of Grindavik as well as the Blue Lagoon, a popular tourist destination. There is also a nearby geothermal powerplant which could be endangered by volcanic activity.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Krakatoa volcano in Indonesia exploded on Friday. Though two relatively small eruptions were recorded, the volcano is a hotspot and cause for concern. In 188, a Krakatoa eruption had one of the highest death tolls of any volcanic eruption, killing more than 36,000 people. The most recent eruption at the site was in 2018, generating a tsunami and killing 437 people.

Volcanoes are explicitly mentioned by the prophets as playing a role in the end of days, preparing the world by burning away impurities as a crucible is used in metallurgy to purify metal. This process is described in Zechariah.

And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on My name and I will answer them; I will say: ‘It is My people’ and they shall say: ‘Hashem is my God.’ Zechariah 13:9 

END OF DAYS SHAKE AND BAKE, BUT ISRAEL IS DIFFERENT

This type of cataclysmic seismic activity is mentioned specifically by the prophets as an aspect of the End-of-Days process.

But Hashem God is the true God, He is the living God, and the everlasting King; at His wrath the earth trembleth, and the nations are not able to abide His indignation. Jeremiah 10:10

The prophet describes this catastrophic period as a process to purify the inhabitants of the earth for the Messianic period to follow.

“And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on My name and I will answer them; I will say: ‘It is My people’ and they shall say: ‘Hashem is my God.’” Zechariah 13:9

On Friday, a 3.6 magnitude earthquake centered in the Arava region shook southern Israel. This came a few days after a 4.3 magnitude earthquake was felt in southern Israel with the epicenter in the Red Sea about 60 miles south of Eilat

While volcanoes and earthquakes rock the world, it should be remembered that catastrophic end-of-days earthquakes are described by the Biblical prophets in two distinct contexts: inside Israel and outside of Israel. While most of these earthquakes shook seismically active regions it should be noted that Israel, sitting on the Syrian-African rift, has also experienced several tremors in the past year. These quakes have been far more gentle. The holy land has experienced over 30 tremors since the beginning of the year but only one, a mild 3.8 shaker off the coast of Haifa last month, was felt by Israelis. 

This is significant as the pre-Messiah war of Gog and Magog is prophesied to be accompanied by earth-changing earthquakes.

On that day, when Gog sets foot on the soil of Yisrael—declares Hashem—My raging anger shall flare up. For I have decreed in My indignation and in My blazing wrath: On that day, a terrible earthquake shall befall the land of Yisrael. The fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that move on the ground, and every human being on earth shall quake before Me. Mountains shall be overthrown, cliffs shall topple, and every wall shall crumble to the ground. Ezekiel 38:18-20 

These pre-Messiah quakes are predicted to bring about topographic changes to Israel. Even though Jerusalem is over 3,600 feet higher than the Dead Sea, the mountaintop capital is actually quite close to the sea, making it likely that a major earthquake in the geologically active Jordan Rift would be the source of the earthquake that is prophesied to drastically change the topography of Jerusalem in the end-of-days.

On that day, He will set His feet on the Mount of Olives, near Yerushalayim on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall split across from east to west, and one part of the Mount shall shift to the north and the other to the south, a huge gorge. Zechariah 14:4

Though these pre-Messiah earthquakes in Israel sound as cataclysmic as those outside of the Holy Land, Jewish tradition teaches that the catastrophes inside of Israel can be mitigated based on the merits the Jews acquire through the performance of Biblical commandments. The concept is referred to as B’Eeta Achishena referred to by the prophet Isaiah.

The smallest shall become a clan; The least, a mighty nation. I Hashem will speed it in due time. Isaiah 60:22

The term is used by rabbis and Jewish theologians to describe the tension between God’s greater plan in light of Man’s will and actions. This is especially relevant in reference to the Messiah and Man’s actions affecting when the Messiah will arrive.

The Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope Is Named ‘Lucifer’ And Is Housed In Their Own Observatory Located On Mount Graham In Arizona

The Vatican Observatory Research Group (VORG) operates the 1.8m Alice P. Lennon Telescope with its Thomas J. Bannan Astrophysics Facility, known together as the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT), at the Mount Graham International Observatory (MGIO) in southeastern Arizona. The telescope is dubbed LUCIFER 1, and provides a powerful tool to gain spectacular insights into the universe — from the Milky Way to extremely distant galaxies.

by Geoffrey Grider April 11, 2020

The Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT), located at the Mount Graham International Observatory in Arizona is named Lucifer.

This story is not new, goes all the way back to 2010, but seeing as we have been spending some time talking about Judas, the betrayer of Jesus, I thought we should take a look at the counterfeit church that is also powered by Satan, the Roman Catholic Church. All through the Catholic church’s 1,695 year history they have maintained an unbreakable connection to Lucifer. Did you know that at Easter, the Catholic Church celebrates by singing a song dedicated to Lucifer? It’s called the Exsultet, more on that in a moment.

Today we will be showing you their massive, high-powered Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope, affectionately known as ‘Lucifer’. For those of you who don’t know, any reference to Lucifer is a reference to Satan.

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” Isaiah 13:12-16 (KJB)

Lucifer fell and became Satan, and as you can see from the verses bearing his name in Isaiah, Lucifer is obsessed with outer space, the star, the planets, and just about everything that is connected to where Heaven is located, on the ‘sides of the North’ and straight up over your head. Let’s take a trip to the  Vatican Observatory located inside the Steward Observatory of the University of Arizona in Tucson.

After considerable outrage and expose from Christian groups, the name of the telescope was changed from Lucifer to Luci, just as the Lucifer Publishing Company at the United Nations changed the name to The Lucis Trust. Now they’ve completely covered their tracks, like Superman putting on a pair of glasses and no one can figure out he’s Clark Kent.

THE TIME THAT POPE FRANCIS IN ST. PETER’S SQUARE AT THE VATICAN DECLARED TO THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT LUCIFER IS THE GOD OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

In a related topic, check this out. On April 27th, 2014, Pope Francis held a ceremony in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican to induct two former popes into sainthood. Catholic sainthood ceremonies are fairly standard procedures, and happen quite often. But on this particular occasion, Pope Francis wanted it broadcast around the world in 3D, HF and 3K. What was so special about this sainthood ceremony to go to all that expense and trouble? What was it that the pope needed the entire world to watch? As it turns out, Pope Francis was about to declare that Lucifer is the Morning Star, a title that the Bible gives to Jesus Christ alone. The pope was telling all the world that Lucifer is God of the Catholic Church.

“Oramus ergo te, Domine, ut cereus iste in honorem tui nominis consecratus, ad noctis huius caliginem destruendam, indeficiens perseveret. Et in odorem suavitatis acceptus, supernis luminaribus misceatur. Flammas eius lucifer matutinus inveniat: Ille, inquam, lucifer, qui nescit occasum: Ille qui regressus ab inferis, humano generi serenus illuxit.” From the Exsultet

The highlight of the ceremony was the singing of a Catholic prayer known as ‘The Exsultet, or ‘Easter Proclamation’. The problem starts in the wording of the prayer itself. As you can see below, twice the name of Lucifer is mentioned as you can clearly see in both the Latin and English versions. The name of Jesus is not mentioned at all. You can read all about the Roman Catholic prayer to Lucifer by clicking here. Now let’s take a look at the Lucifer telescope operated by the Vatican. If you’re reading this through email, please visit this article online to watch the mind-blowing videos we;ve attached for your consideration.

Vatican-Tied Mount Graham Observatory Launched LUCIFER Telescope In 2010

FROM TRANSMISSIONS MEDIA: The Vatican Observatory Research Group (VORG) operates the 1.8m Alice P. Lennon Telescope with its Thomas J. Bannan Astrophysics Facility, known together as the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT), at the Mount Graham International Observatory (MGIO) in southeastern Arizona where sky conditions are among the best in the world and certainly the Continental United States.

The new instrument on the Large Binocular Telescope is a powerful tool that will gain spectacular insights into the universe — from the Milky Way to extremely distant galaxies. A new instrument for the world´s largest optical telescope, the Large Binocular Telescope (LBT) on Mount Graham, allows astronomers to observe the faintest and most distant objects in the universe.

After more than a decade of design, manufacturing, and testing, the new instrument, dubbed LUCIFER 1, provides a powerful tool to gain spectacular insights into the universe — from the Milky Way to extremely distant galaxies. An identical twin instrument will be delivered to the telescope in early 2011.

“With the large light-gathering power of the LBT, astronomers are now able to collect the spectral fingerprints of the faintest and most distant objects in the universe,” said LBT director Richard Green, a professor of astronomy at the University of Arizona´s Steward Observatory.

LUCIFER 1 and its twin are mounted at the focus points of the LBT´s two giant 27.6-foot-diameter (8.4 meters) telescope mirrors. Each instrument is cooled to -351° Fahrenheit (-213° Celsius) in order to observe in the near-infrared wavelength range. Near-infrared observations are essential for understanding the formation of stars and planets in our galaxy as well as revealing the secrets of the most distant and young galaxies.

LUCIFER´s innovative design allows astronomers to observe star-forming regions in unprecedented detail, which are commonly hidden by dust clouds. The instrument is remarkably flexible, combining a large field of view with a high resolution. It provides three exchangeable cameras for imaging and spectroscopy in different resolutions, according to observational requirements.

Astronomers use spectroscopy to analyze incoming light and answer questions such as how stars and galaxies formed and what composes them

Still Don’t Think All What’s Happening Isn’t God’s Judgment? Prepare For Giant Asian Hornets All Across The United States Who Can Kill With 1 Sting

Experts estimate the giant Asian hornets may cause America a staggering $29.3 million as they invade. The invasion is projected as a coronavirus-stricken U.S. is already facing economic setbacks. Millions are out of work – with nearly 17 million applying for unemployment in the last three weeks alone – as more than 432,000 cases of the virus have been confirmed in the U.S. alone The invasive hornets made it to the UK in 2016 – and in December 2019, were first spotted in the U.S. in Washington. Experts are now warning that the species will begin to swarm in spring, as the hornet’s life cycle begins in April.

by Geoffrey Grider April 10, 2020

Giant Asian hornets that have begun to invade the coronavirus-stricken U.S. may cost the economy millions of dollars a year. The insects, which can kill with a single sting, may have a devastating impact on the already dwindling honeybee population in the U.S.

China gave the world the Wuhan Coronavirus, which has to date caused 1,634,014 infections with 97,715 deaths around the world. But this is not the only thing we have received from China. Back in 2004, China ‘accidentally released’ giants asian hornets who look like they jumped off the pages of Revelation, and out of the bottomless pit of Hell. April is their hatching season, and here in the United States it has been predicted we could see massive swarms of the disgusting insects. Just another day at work when you’re living in the end times.

“And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.” Revelation 9:10,11 (KJB)

At some point, all this coronavirus hysteria will be behind us, but if you thinking about things ‘returning to normal’, disabuse yourself of that quaint notion immediately. The entire world has been catapulted by the absolute authority of bible prophecy into the ‘next phase’ of God’s judgment on this sin-cursed and sin-sick world. Nothing will ever be the same again. Playtime is over, kiddies, and we who are saved are getting ready to fly out of here on Flight #777 on Titus213 Airlines. But for those who will be left behind, it won’t be ‘lions, and tigers and bears, oh my!’, it will be locusts from the bottomless pit, the walking undead and Antichrist. Are you ready for what comes next?

Giant Asian hornets that can ‘kill with a single sting’ to invade virus-stricken US

FROM THE SUN UK: Experts estimate the pests may cause America a staggering $29.3 million as they invade. The invasion is projected as a coronavirus-stricken U.S. is already facing economic setbacks. Millions are out of work – with nearly 17 million applying for unemployment in the last three weeks alone – as more than 432,000 cases of the virus have been confirmed in the U.S. alone Many experts have warned of a looming recession, as businesses have been forced to shutter their doors due to stay-at-home orders.

Asian hornets are similar to European hornets that live in the U.S., but they are not native to America. They are large insects measuring almost 2in long, originally from Southeast Asia, that prey on small creatures – especially bees.

“Just one sting is enough to kill someone allergic to their venom.”

The yellow-legged critters were accidentally introduced to France from China in 2004 and they have been spreading rapidly throughout Europe and other parts of the world ever since. Experts estimate the Asian hornet colonised most of France at a rate of roughly 37 to 50 miles per year.

And the species has swiftly been invading other countries including Spain in 2010, Portugal and Belgium in 2011, Italy in 2012 and Germany in 2014.

The invasive hornets made it to the UK in 2016 – and in December 2019, were first spotted in the U.S. in Washington. Experts are now warning that the species will begin to swarm in spring, as the hornet’s life cycle begins in April.

In a new study – published first in the journal NeoBiota – French scientists evaluated the estimated cost of this non-native hornet invasion to the U.S. and Europe. They did so by analysing the negative impact Asian hornets have on ecosystems and the global decline in pollination and honey production. Experts in Washington are calling for people to take action now, so the species can be controlled before it becomes out of hand.

WARNING: I Can No Longer Say That Bill Gates Planned Global Vaccinations And The ID2020 Digital Identification Are Not The Mark Of The Beast

Look at how quickly and easily they have locked us down, crashed the economy, and quarantined nearly the entire world. That’s Step One, second step will be to then force us all to take the vaccination as the “only way” to stop the virus. After everyone has taken the vaccination Bill Gates has created, then everyone will be given a digital ID. The Mark of the Beast system come to life. Adding “upgrades” to it later, like connecting it with buying and selling will be a natural next step. Oh wait, ID2020 has already done that, take a look.

by Geoffrey Grider April 7, 2020

Yes, it is possible, and on many levels, highly likely that the proposed global vaccinations combined with the ID2020 digital identification being forced on us from Bill Gates could very well be the coming Mark of the Beast.

On our Sunday night radio bible study program, I talked about Bill Gates and his planned global vaccinations and his connection to the ID2020 Alliance to give everyone a digital ID, and I said that while I didn’t think those things necessarily constituted the Mark of the Beast from Revelation 13, I strongly advised people to reject both the vaccine and the ID2020 digital identification. But in the 48 hours since that program, the Lord has shown me in no uncertain terms, that I didn’t go far enough, that it could very well be the Mark. Let me tell you why.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

When Sunday’s radio bible study was over, I was very happy. We had a huge global audience of bible believers coming to learn from the word and fellowship with each other in our NTEB family, the show felt like it went great, Jesus was lifted up, everything was good. But there was a quiet, little check in my spirit about the things I had just talked about. Yes, I had faithfully laid out and exposed all the elements of Bill Gates plan to force a global vaccine upon every human being, connected him to ID2020 and their digital ID, and warned everyone to reject both of those things, but said that while all this was evil, I did not think it was the Mark of the Beast. After the show was over, I began to wonder if that was the right thing to say. That was Strike 1, and that little check in my spirit grew louder.

Yesterday morning, while reading some comments on YouTube where we also post the programs, one or two of the commentors blasted me for not connecting it to the Mark of the Beast. They were not mean spirited or aggressive, just told me I was wrong, I wanted to disagree with them but could not. Strike 2, the check in my spirit speaking louder.

Just about an hour ago, my good buddy and fellow bible believer ‘sword sharpener’ Andy called me up to say he had listened to Sunday’s program, more than once, and wanted to tell me he felt the Lord telling him to tell me to reconsider my assessment of Bill Gates and his plans. He had no idea I had been struggling with it for the past 36 hours. I was instantly convicted and received what the Lord put on his heart to tell me. Strike 3, the check in my spirit ringing out loud and clear.

There is no such thing as a ‘strike 4’ but if there was look closely at the graphic I made for this article, what does it look like to you? They say a picture is worth a thousand words, that picture looks to me like someone working to bring in the Mark of the Beast, and who has been working diligently behind the scenes to put all the pieces in place.

Strike 4. So OK, game on, here we go.

Microsoft, in a recent announcement regarding using blockchain technology for decentralized identification further articulated its support of this initiative stating, “Each of us needs a digital identity we own, one which securely and privately stores all elements of our digital identity.”

BIG PHARMA AND MICROSOFT ARE TEAMING UP IN SOMETHING CALLED THE ‘ID2020 ALLIANCE’ THAT WILL COMBINE VACCINATIONS WITH IMPLANTABLE MICROCHIPS TO CREATE YOUR DIGITAL ID. THE MARK OF THE BEAST.

Bill Gates And The Mark Of The Beast

In the audio clips I played of Bill Gates and his interview with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show, there was something Gates said that I heard, but it did not sink in. This is what Brother Andy had called me specifically for to have me consider. Bill Gates mentions an “18 month time frame” that it will take to get all 7 of his ‘vaccine factories’ (I get a mental picture of Auschwitz when I say that phrase, vaccine factories, it’s so cold, dark and evil sounding. Like Zyklon B. Ugh.), and that his plan for the 7 vaccine factories will be connected to ‘world governments’.

“It seems, though, that money isn’t able to fix this problem,” Noah said. “It seems like governments around the world are trying everything they can, but it doesn’t seem like it can be fixed. What are you hoping to achieve in this moment in time?”

“Governments will eventually come up with lots of money for these things, but they don’t know where to direct it, they can’t move as quickly,” Bill Gates replied.

He said that the biggest issue right now is the American health care system’s access to testing in order to pinpoint who has the disease and who does not. He added, however, that the money he has pledged can “help accelerate things” right now. “We did fund some things to be more prepared, like a vaccine effort,” Bill Gates said.

“So for example there’s — of all the vaccine constructs, the seven most promising of those — even though we’ll end up picking at most two of them — we’re gonna fund factories for all seven,” he said. “To get to the best case, that people like myself and Dr. Fauci are saying is about 18 months, we need to do safety and efficacy and build manufacturing. … And so we’ll abandon — you know, it will be a few billion dollars we’ll waste on manufacturing for the constructs that don’t get picked because something else is better,” Gates continued. READ MORE

That’s what I want you to focus on, as Andy told me, don’t look at it as something happening now, look at it like something that will take 18 months to come to fruition. A year and a half is an eternity, you can get an enormous amount accomplished in that time period with the cooperation of the world’s governments, the United Nations, and hundreds of billions of dollars at your disposal.

They Have Already Locked Us Down

Look at how quickly and easily they have locked us down, crashed the economy, and quarantined nearly the entire world. That’s Step One, the second step will be to then force us all to take the vaccination as the “only way” to stop the virus. After everyone has taken the vaccination Bill Gates has created, then everyone will be given a digital ID. The Mark of the Beast system come to life. Adding “upgrades” to it later, like connecting it with buying and selling will be a natural next step. Oh wait, ID2020 has already done that, take a look. Hello, Mark Of The Beast, we see you.

“Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:1-4 (KJB)

So in the context of that timeframe, Bill Gates own timeframe that I had glossed over too quickly, is it possible to have the build-up to the Mark of the Beast, see who Antichrist is as Paul says we will in 2 Thessalonians 2, and still have the Pretribulation Rapture take place before the Mark of the Beast is rolled out? Yep, it surely is possible. It is absolutely possible that Bill Gates could be the Antichrist, or at least the forerunner to Antichrist. I can’t believe the words are coming out of my mouth, but yes, it is. It is possible. Could the global vaccinations combined with the ID2020 digital identification system be the actual Mark of the Beast, or the forerunner to it.? To quote DL Moody, “yes, yes, a thousand times yes!”

Bill Gates has been brewing this evil plan for many years now, and I would like you to read and consider the following:

Did you see the last bullet point? The testing has already begun, Bill Gates has opened the money spigot. You know what the bible says about money.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have poured funding into Inovio’s INO-4800 vaccine project

FROM MSN NEWS: A small Pennsylvania biotech company is planning to start injecting healthy volunteers with a potential coronavirus vaccine, after receiving regulatory clearance to start clinical testing. Researchers plan to dose the first person Monday. The experimental vaccine was developed by Inovio Pharmaceuticals, with the effort receiving funding from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations. Inovio’s candidate, called INO-4800, is the second potential coronavirus vaccine to start human trials in the US. The Massachusetts biotech Moderna started dosing in mid-March for its own safety trial.

Americans Must Now Accept The Hard, Cold Reality That The Coronavirus Outbreak Is Intentionally Being Used To Collapse The U.S. Economy

The Cloward-Piven strategy is an 8-step plan designed in 1966 by hardcore anti-America Liberal Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a new national system. Here is their plan, look at it and tell me if you see anything it mentions that might be happening right now. This is not conspiracy theory, I am asking you to exercise some intelligent, critical thinking.

by Geoffrey Grider April 2, 2020

The Cloward-Piven strategy is an 8-step plan designed in 1966 by hardcore anti-America Liberal Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis.

This article you are reading is the 7,629th article I have written since Now The End Begins came online 10 years ago, and it is perhaps the hardest one I’ve ever had to write, so I want you to pay close attention to what I have to say. It is going to present to you a very, very hard truth to swallow, but it is truth nonetheless. What is happening right now in America is something we have long written about coming to pass one day, it began under Obama but didn’t fully complete. It is now happening under Trump, why is he not stopping it?

“This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole earth: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon all the nations. For the LORD of hosts hath purposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” Isaiah 14:26,27 (KJB)

Back when Barack Obama was president, one of the things we said he was attempting to do was to destroy the American economy with something called the Cloward-Piven strategy. It is an 8-step plan designed in 1966 by hardcore anti-America Liberal Socialists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a new national system. Here is their plan, look at it and tell me if you see anything it mentions that might be happening right now. This is not conspiracy theory, I am asking you to exercise some intelligent, critical thinking. Ready? Here it is:

The Cloward-Piven Strategy To Collapse America:

  1. Healthcare– Control healthcare and you control the people. HAPPENING NOW
  2. Poverty – Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live. HAPPENING NOW
  3. Debt – Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty. HAPPENING NOW
  4. Gun Control – Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state. HAPPENING NOW
  5. Welfare – Take control of every aspect of their lives. (Food, Housing, and Income) HAPPENING NOW
  6. Education – Take control of what people read and listen to us“ take control of what children learn in school. ALREADY DONE
  7. Religion – Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools. ALREADY DONE
  8. Class Warfare – Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor. HAPPENING NOW

Right now, steps 1-5 and 8 are being executed right now in how our government is reacting to the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, with steps, 6 and 7 already having been implemented since 2008. The American economy is being split into pieces right now by the combination of a $2 trillion dollar bailout with more coming, Americans under stay-at-home orders, and with more people right now on unemployment in two weeks of the coronavirus crisis than in the second year of the Great Depression of 1929.

Now Dr. Fauci is saying that the stay-at-home order will not be lifted until there are “zero new cases”? How can that be? That would take many months to reach that number, how can that be? It only makes sense when you look at steps 2 and 3 of the Cloward-Piven strategy. Our government is telling us to stay at home, that 100,000 people will die in the first two weeks of April, yet for that to come true America would have to have 500% more fatalities from coronavirus that all the deaths recorded anywhere around the world since the COVID-19 outbreak began. That is simply not true and it is simply not possible. No, my friends, what we are seeing is the implementation of the Cloward-Piven 8 Step Plan to crash the American economy, and it is happening right before our very eyes.

America as we know it cannot and will not survive a 3-month lockdown, it will fall and there is no question about that. Jobless claims as of today, have surged to 6.6 million people, listen to what the people at Market Watch are saying, it will shock you to your core:

“There are no parallels for the pandemic fueled slowdown that the U.S. economy is currently contending with, and that is forcing economists like those of Bank of America Global Research to forecast a decidedly grimmer outlook for the American economy than they offered just two weeks ago. The BofA researchers on Thursday said the coming recession “appears to be deeper and more prolonged than we were led to believe just 14 days ago when we last updated our forecasts, not just in the US but globally as well. As MarketWatch reports the scale of the shutdowns of business in force, intended to help mitigate the spread of the deadly pathogen, is unprecedented and is having a substantial negative impact on the labor market and the broader economy.” READ MORE

Those numbers, unlike the numbers from Dr. Fauci are not speculative they are actual numbers as of the date of this article. Speaking of Dr. Fauci, listen as he tells us that there is no foreseeable end to the stay at home lockdown of the American economy. You see how bad things have become in just two weeks, imagine where we will be in 3 months. This is the implementation of the Cloward-Piven 8 Step Plan to crash the American economy, and it is working beautifully.

Fauci Says Lockdown Will Continue Until There Are No “New Cases” of Coronavirus

FROM SUMMIT NEWS: During yesterday’s White House briefing, Fauci, who has become the face of America’s response to the coronavirus, was asked by a reporter whether social distancing measures will be imposed until there is a drug or vaccine to treat COVID-19.

“I think if we get to the part of the curve that Dr. Birx showed yesterday when it goes down to essentially no new cases, no new deaths at a period of time. I think it makes sense that you will have to relax social distancing,” Fauci said. “The one thing we hopefully would have in place, and I believe we will have in place, is a much more robust system to be able to identify someone who was infected, isolate them and then do contact tracing,” he added.

The prospect of there ever being zero new coronavirus cases appears to be a very long way off, leading some to question if Fauci was asking Americans to adopt social distancing indefinitely, or at least until a vaccine is available.

  • “Fauci said that we can start to “relax” social distancing once there are “no new cases, no deaths.” Is it just me or is that completely bats*** insane?” asked Matt Walsh. “That would keep us in a lockdown for many months or years. And if the virus becomes endemic, forever. How can that be the plan?”
  • “No kidding. We would need to assume that any vaccine would be immediately available, 100% effective, 100% of the population has access to it, and 100% of the population takes it,” commented another respondent.
  • “Sounds like they’ll eventually have to keep us “temporarily” locked in our homes. No cars on the road. No people at stores or gas stations, and the national guard will start leaving a box of food on our doorsteps every 3 days. And everyone will be ok with it,” added another.

Italy is already experiencing looting and civil unrest as a result of lockdown measures. Experts have suggested that this could be a massive problem everywhere if authorities attempt to quarantine entire countries for too long. READ MORE

The Cloward-Piven Strategy Began In 2009 Under Obama

As I have told you, the Cloward-Piven plan to collapse the American economy first began under President Obama, as you will see here in this program by Glenn Beck from 2009. But for whatever reason, Obama and his minions were not able to fully implement Cloward-Piven. We thought we dodged a bullet with the election of Trump in 2016, so why are we seeing what Obama started now being thrust upon us? This video will fully explain the Cloward-Piven strategy to you, and when you understand it, you will understand what you are watching happen right now with the coronavirus outbreak. I highly urge you to watch all of these videos, educate yourself. Understand what is truly happening right now.
