Jonathan Cahn delivers ‘prophetic message’ to President Biden

‘How can you invoke the name of God in your oath?’

By Art Moore
Published January 26, 2021 at 7:49pm

In a video message for President Biden, Messianic rabbi Jonathan Cahn recalled the first inaugural address 232 years ago when President George Washington gave the nation “a prophetic warning.”

“The propitious smiles of heaven cannot be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right that heaven itself has ordained,” Washington told the nation.

Cahn said in his video, posted Monday on YouTube, that there’s a message for the current president and the nation he leads.

“If America follows the ways of God, the blessings of God will remain,” Cahn said. “If it doesn’t, they will be removed.”

Cahn, known for his bestsellers including “The Harbinger,” led a massive gathering on the National Mall in September calling for a “return” to God. Later, he urged Americans to pray and fast on Election Day, warning the nation was “standing at a crossroad and a precipice.”

Now, in the wake of the riot at the Capitol, he said, “division infects the land” along with the COVID-19 pandemic “that has kept its citizens masked and locked in their houses.”

It appears, he said that “the smiles of heaven are being removed from the land” as people disregard “the eternal rules of order and right.”

“America has turned away from God and let in other Gods and served them, embracing the ways of immorality,” said Cahn.

“We’ve called evil good and good evil,” he said.

“We’ve passed down rulings from Washington, D.C., that war against the eternal laws of heaven, on human life, human nature, gender, marriage,” he said. “We’ve indoctrinated our children against the ways of God.”

Cahn said Americans have “done as we were warned not to do, and then we wonder why the blessings of heaven are being removed from our land.”

He noted the pattern of God’s judgment from the Old Testament that he discovered were remarkably repeated in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, including on the spot where George Washington stood and prayed on the day of his inauguration. For Israel, he noted that after such a warning, there was a window of time of 19 years to return to God before judgment, or “great shakings” began. Clearly, 19 years after 2001, America suffered a year of “great shakings.”

He directed his words to the current president.

“Mr. Biden, you have called for unity and peace. But how can a nation have unity and peace when it wars against the very foundation on which it stands?” he said.

Cahn said the nation can’t have unity and peace when it has “turned against the God who brought it into existence.”

Addressing Biden, he asked how the president can place his right hand on the word of God “and then with your right hand sign laws into existence that war against his word?”

“How can you invoke the name of God in your oath and lay your hand upon his word and then implement laws that will suppress the going forth of his word, that will censor his word and those who advance it?” Cahn asked.

He warned that Biden, his administration and lawmakers will be called to account some day by God for their actions.

“The problem is not social or economic or cultural or political, the problem is ultimately spiritual. And so must be the answer.

America’s only hope is to return to God.

“Choose true greatness and lead in that return, or continue in this departure from God, to destruction and judgment,” the rabbi said.

He said that “to those who love the nation and fear for its future, the only hope is revival.”

“Revival only comes through repentance and return,” he said.

“It’s time to pray as never before that return and revival would come. But it’s time not only to pray for revival but to live in revival and to choose to live in revival now.”

Cahn said that if darkness comes, God reminds us to fear not, because, he still has the ultimate authority, and the darkness cannot overcome the light.

“If the darkness should grow darker, then it’s time for the lights of God to shine even brighter.”

The Police State Is Coming For “Religious Extremists”, “Evangelical Christians”, “Pro-Life” Activists And “Libertarians”

January 24, 2021 by Michael Snyder

If you cherish faith, family and freedom, you might want to keep a low profile for a while.  The Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act of 2021 has been unveiled in Congress, and it has bipartisan support.  It is essentially “the Patriot Act on steroids”, and we are being told that it is almost certain that some version of the legislation will make it to Biden’s desk for him to sign.  Personally, I am very much against all forms of domestic terrorism, and a law which could help to prevent terror attacks from happening is going to sound like a good thing to a lot of people.  Unfortunately, it appears that this bill is meant to specifically target certain groups, and as you read this article you may discover that you are a member of one or more of those groups.

Those that drafted this new law say that it will help authorities go after “extremists”, and very few of us would consider ourselves to be one of those.

But the definition of an extremist has changed.  Tulsi Gabbard is one of the most prominent Democrats in the House of Representatives, and last year she ran for president.  But even though she is a Democrat, she is warning that this new law appears to be “a targeting of almost half of the country”

“What characteristics are we looking for as we are building this profile of a potential extremist, what are we talking about? Religious extremists, are we talking about Christiansevangelical Christians, what is a religious extremist? Is it somebody who is pro-life? Where do you take this?” Gabbard said.

She said the proposed legislation could create “a very dangerous undermining of our civil liberties, our freedoms in our Constitution, and a targeting of almost half of the country.”

It is fundamentally un-American to specifically target people for their religious beliefs, and so that is extremely alarming.

Gabbard is also warning that people with certain political perspectives are likely to be targeted as well

“You start looking at obviously, have to be a white person, obviously likely malelibertarians, anyone who loves freedom, liberty, maybe has an American flag outside their house, or people who, you know, attended a Trump rally,” Gabbard said.

Wait a second.

I am a male.

I love freedom and liberty.

I am flying an American flag outside my house right now.

Am I going to be put on a list somewhere?

During a recent television interview, former CIA Director John Brennan said that the Biden administration will likely be focusing on “religious extremists”“nativists”, and “even libertarians” as possible targets.

In what universe is saying something like that okay?

Even before this new legislation has gone through Congress, Joe Biden has already instructed his director of national intelligence to identify potential extremist threats

President Biden has asked the director of national intelligence to draw up a comprehensive threat assessment on domestic violent extremism in the country as the new administration seeks to tackle what it calls a “serious and growing national security threat.”

The move is one of several the White House press secretary announced Friday to address mounting concerns about domestic extremism, particularly in the wake of the violent insurrection more than two weeks ago by Trump supporters at the U.S. Capitol.

There is that word “extremism” again.

And new White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki has been using it repeatedly during her press briefings.

In the old days, we assumed that “extremists” were crazy terrorists and suicide bombers in the Middle East.

But now they are using that term to describe large numbers of people that live inside the United States.

That is extremely chilling.

And once “extremists” have been identified, we are being told that the White House National Security Council “will be tasked with building capacity to tackle and disrupt extremist networks”.

What does that mean and what will that look like?

If the Biden administration truly wanted to go after domestic terrorists, they aren’t hard to find.

In fact, a whole bunch of them attacked an ICE facility in Portland on Saturday night

Protests outside an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility in Portland turned ugly on Saturday night as federal authorities threatened mass arrests for trespassing.

Dramatic videos posted on Twitter showed the crowd chanting: ‘No borders! No nations! Abolish deportations!’

You can watch footage of the battle that ensued right here.  According to the Daily Mail, insurgents in Portland have now been committing political violence for four days in a row…

It marked the four-straight day of protests in the city since Joe Biden’s inauguration as demonstrators make it clear that a new Democratic administration will not stop their campaign for social justice.

There they are Biden.

Go get them.

We also just witnessed a very frightening terror attack at a church in California

The FBI has launched an investigation after a bomb was thrown at an anti-LGBT church in California just weeks after the pastor received an arson attack threat.

Police and fire crews were called to the First Works Baptist Church at 2600 Tyler Avenue in El Monte in the early hours of Saturday morning to reports of an explosion.

The FBI said an improvised explosive device had been thrown at the building and it had also been covered in graffiti.

Sadly, these are not the sorts of “extremists” that the Democrats have in mind.

Instead, they appear to be very interested in identifying and “deprogramming” those that voted for Donald Trump…

A Democratic National Committee official, David Atkins, said on Twitter that “deprogramming” is needed for every one of more than 74 million people who voted for Trump on Nov. 3.

Limbaugh said they “are literally thinking of deprogramming conservatives.”

Of course it isn’t just the Biden administration that is focused on Trump supporters.  Countless private individuals have joined a growing nationwide effort to punish any individual or entity that was ever closely associated with Trump…

It’s why the left is cheering Big Tech’s embrace of cancel culture and pushing cable providers to stop airing One America News Network, Newsmax and other “conservative influencers.”

It’s why the so-called Trump Accountability Project, which seeks to prevent administrations officials from gainful employment, is not widely denounced for the thuggery that it is and why 250 publishing professionals feel comfortable circulating a “No Book Deals for Traitors” petition that says former Trump officials shouldn’t be allowed to publish their works. It’s also why Harvard students think it’s reasonable to circulate a letter demanding the revocation of degrees earned by Republicans who questioned the 2020 election, and why MoveOn.org demands that the Senate not give Ted Cruz and Josh Hawley any committee assignments.

Now that the Democrats have full power in Washington, it is open season on Trump and all of his supporters.

But the truth is that the vast majority of the civil unrest over the past year has been caused by radicals on the left, and it is only going to get worse in the months and years to come.

For the past 12 months, there has been political violence somewhere in America on an almost nightly basis.  But because leftists are involved 99 percent of the time, the corporate media generally ignores most of it.

You can’t just be against political violence when the other side does it.  I am very strongly against all of the rioting, looting, arson and vandalism that we have been witnessing.  The attacks on police stations, courthouses and federal buildings need to stop.

Sadly, it appears that the people committing most of the political violence will be handled with kid gloves by this new administration.

Meanwhile, those that have politically incorrect religious and political views will be demonized as “extremists” and will be specifically targeted under the new law that Congress is about to pass.

Democrats launch campaign to change Constitution, abolish Electoral College

‘Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office’

By Bob Unruh
Published January 13, 2021 at 9:42pm

Democrats, who long have chafed under the stipulations of the Constitution that make the United States a constitutional republic rather than a democracy, have introduced a House resolution to abolish the Electoral College and exchange it with a national popular vote for president and vice president.

The resolution, led by Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., claims that the “development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world,” the Washington Examiner reported.

While Democrats now have the majority in the House and Senate as well as the White House, the measure is not likely to succeed because a constitutional amendment must be ratified by two-thirds of the states.

The Electoral College was established as a compromise between those who wanted the president elected by a vote in Congress and those who sought a direct vote.

Cohen contends the Electoral College now is an “anachronism,” and the Constitution already has been changed, for example, to allow citizens of all races and women to vote.

The resolution states:

Whereas the Founders of the Nation established the electoral college in an era of limited nationwide communication and information sharing; Whereas the electoral college is premised on an antiquated theory that citizens will have a better chance of knowing about electors from their home States than about Presidential candidates from out of State; Whereas the development of mass media and the internet has made information about Presidential candidates easily accessible to United States citizens across the country and around the world; Whereas citizens now have a far better chance of knowing about out-of-State Presidential candidates than about Presidential electors from their home State.

Proponents of the Electoral College argue, among other things, that it prevents the nation’s large population centers from deciding elections, giving weight to the votes of smaller states.

Democrats also have been promoting an agreement, called the National Popular Vote, in which states would give all of their Electoral College votes to the winner of the national popular vote.

“Americans expect and deserve the winner of the popular vote to win office,” Cohen said.

“The president should always be elected by the people, not the politicians, and the Electoral College allows politicians to make the ultimate decision.”

The resolution has been assigned to the House Judiciary Committee.

The irrelevance of truth in an age of indoctrination

Thomas Sowell: For many people, what is true or false depends on who it helps or hurts politically

By Thomas Sowell
Published January 12, 2021 at 7:14pm

It is amazing how many people seem to have discovered last Wednesday that riots are wrong – when many of those same people apparently had not noticed that when riots went on, for weeks or even months, in various cities across the country last year.

For too many people, especially in the media, what is right and wrong, true or false, depends on who it helps or hurts politically. Too many media people who are supposed to be reporters act as if they are combatants in political wars.

Someone once said that, in a war, truth is the first casualty. That has certainly been so in the media – and in much of academia as well.

One of the most grotesque distortions growing out of this carelessness with the facts has been a removal of Abraham Lincoln’s name and statues from various places, on grounds that he saw black people only as property.

Such criticisms betray an incredible ignorance of history – or else a complete disregard of truth.

As a lawyer, Abraham Lincoln knew that there was nothing in the Constitution which authorized him or any other president to free slaves. But he also knew that a military commander in wartime can legally seize the property of an enemy nation. Defining slaves as property gave President Lincoln the only legal authority he had to seize them during the Civil War. And once they were seized as property, he could then free them as human beings.

But, if the Emancipation Proclamation had based its action on defining the slaves as human beings, with a right to be free, the Supreme Court of that era would undoubtedly have declared it unconstitutional.

Millions of human beings would have remained slaves. Would ringing rhetoric be worth that price?

As for the claim that Lincoln did not regard black people as human, he invited Frederick Douglass to the White House!

Gross distortions of history in order to get Abraham Lincoln’s name removed from schools tell us a lot about what is wrong with American education today.

Many schools are closed because of the coronavirus and the teachers unions. And many schools in minority neighborhoods failed to teach children enough math and English, back when they were still open. So it is incredible that school authorities have time to spend on ideological crusades like removing names and statues from schools.

Unfortunately, too many American educational institutions – from elementary schools to universities – have become indoctrination centers. The riots that swept across the country last year are fruits of that indoctrination and the utter disregard for other people’s rights that accompanied those riots.

At the heart of that indoctrination is a sense of grievance and victimhood when others have better outcomes – which are automatically called “privileges” and never called “achievements,” regardless of what the actual facts are.

Facts don’t matter in such issues, any more than facts mattered when smearing Lincoln.

Any “under-representation” of any group in any endeavor can be taken as evidence or proof of discriminatory bias. But those who argue this way cannot show us any society – anywhere in the world, or at any time during thousands of years of recorded history – that had all groups represented proportionally in all endeavors.

In America’s National Hockey League, for example, there are more players from Canada than there are players from the United States. There are also more players from Sweden than from California, even though California’s population is nearly four times the population of Sweden.

Californians are more “under-represented” in the NHL than women are in Silicon Valley. But no one can claim that this is due to discriminatory bias by the NHL. It is far more obviously due to people growing up in cold climates being more likely to have ice-skating experience.

This is one of many factors that produce skewed statistics in many endeavors. Discriminatory bias is among those factors. But it has no monopoly.

Yet who cares about facts any more, in this age of indoctrination?

WASHINGTON DC EXISTS RIGHT NOW IN A STATE OF WAR WITH ARMED TROOPS PATROLLING THE STREETS AS PRESIDENT TRUMP DECLARES STATE OF EMERGENCY

The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the District of Columbia. Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 100 percent Federal funding.

by Geoffrey Grider January 11, 2021

Today, President Donald J. Trump declared that an emergency exists in the District of Columbia and ordered Federal assistance to supplement the District’s response efforts due to the emergency conditions resulting from the 59th Presidential Inauguration from January 11 to January 24, 2021.

 

It is absolutely breathtaking watching all the news stories coming across the wire, each new headline trumpeting the latest disaster in a nation that is literally coming apart at the seams. The fear coming out of Washington DC tonight is so palpable, if I open my north-facing windows I can smell it all the way from down here in the free state of Florida.

“Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman: If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people; Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.” Ezekiel 33:2-4 (KJB)

The Democrats, so consumed with their lust for power in light of their sweeping, across the board political victories are way overplaying their hand and now look like they are about to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Twitter, having banished President Trump is now experiencing a massive stock drop, as millions rise up against them to protest their squelching of free speech. The pushback against the fascist social media overlords is actually having an effect, so keep up the pressure, they can be defeated.

Pelosi and her brown shirts demanding either Trump get the 25th Amendment or be impeached is causing a rift even within the Democrat party. The FBI is now warning of a ‘huge uprising’ of American citizens who are rightly rejecting what they see happening right now. It look just like either a pathetic, Third World banana republic, or the greatest nation on earth being squeezed to death by the judgment of Almighty God. You pick.

“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it’s natural manure.” Thomas JeffersonMonticello 1787

The very air we are breathing right now is crackling with electricity, something really big is coming and everyone from the farmers in the wheat fields of Kansas, all the way up to the hedge fund titans in their steel and glass towers in every major city knows something is about to break loose. Something tells me that Trump has not played his final card yet, stay tuned.

President Donald J. Trump Approves District of Columbia Emergency Declaration

FROM THE WHITE HOUSE: The President’s action authorizes the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to coordinate all disaster relief efforts which have the purpose of alleviating the hardship and suffering caused by the emergency on the local population, and to provide appropriate assistance for required emergency measures, authorized under Title V of the Stafford Act, to save lives and to protect property and public health and safety, and to lessen or avert the threat of a catastrophe in the District of Columbia.

THE US HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES IS EXPECTED ON TUESDAY TO TAKE UP A MEASURE CALLING ON VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE AND MEMBERS OF TRUMP’S CABINET TO INVOKE A PROCESS UNDER THE 25TH AMENDMENT, WHICH ALLOWS FOR THE REMOVAL OF A PRESIDENT DEEMED UNFIT TO FULFILL THEIR DUTIES. DEMOCRATIC HOUSE SPEAKER NANCY PELOSI SAID ON MONDAY THAT THE PRESIDENT POSES AN “IMMINENT THREAT” TO THE NATION AND “MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE IMMEDIATELY”.

Specifically, FEMA is authorized to identify, mobilize, and provide at its discretion, equipment and resources necessary to alleviate the impacts of the emergency. Emergency protective measures, limited to direct Federal assistance, will be provided at 100 percent Federal funding.

THE PURGE: PARLER IS DOWN AS APPLE AND GOOGLE THREATENS TO DEPLATFORM FREE SPEECH SITE WHILE TWITTER PERMANENTLY SUSPENDS TRUMP’S ACCOUNT

Apple wrote to Parler executives Friday telling them it had received complaints about “objectionable content,” according to BuzzFeed, “accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 that led (among other things) to loss of life, numerous injuries, and the destruction of property. The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.” If Parler doesn’t comply, the app will be removed from the App Store. Activist group Sleeping Giants had called on both Apple and Google to ban Parler from their app stores in response to posts calling for violence against elected officials.

by Geoffrey Grider January 8, 2021

Apple and Google are facing new pressure to deplatform Parler, a social network founded as a less moderated and more conservative-friendly alternative to Facebook and Twitter. Late Friday, BuzzFeed News reported that Apple has given Parler 24 hours to put a moderation platform into place or be expelled from its App Store.

 

The radical anti-free speech Leftists that control all of the fake new media and the social media just made their move to rid the world of free thought and speech. Twitter permanently banned President Trump’s account, Facebook is moments away from doing the same thing. Parler is currently down as both Apple and Google issued the deplatform ultimatum to either censor their content or be deplatformed. The purge we’ve been warning you about has begun tonight.

The Democrats who now have the House, Senate and the White House are on a mission to not just remove President Trump from office, they want to silence each and every one of the 73 million people who voted for him. We told you this was coming on our podcast today, if you haven’t listened to it yet, we highly advise you do. Welcome to 1933.

Tech tyrants Apple and Google face pressure to deplatform Parler over calls to violence

FROM THE VERGE: Apple wrote to Parler executives Friday telling them it had received complaints about “objectionable content,” according to BuzzFeed, “accusations that the Parler app was used to plan, coordinate, and facilitate the illegal activities in Washington D.C. on January 6, 2021 that led (among other things) to loss of life, numerous injuries, and the destruction of property. The app also appears to continue to be used to plan and facilitate yet further illegal and dangerous activities.” If Parler doesn’t comply, the app will be removed from the App Store.

ACTIVIST GROUP SLEEPING GIANTS HAD CALLED ON BOTH APPLE AND GOOGLE TO BAN PARLER FROM THEIR APP STORES IN RESPONSE TO POSTS CALLING FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST ELECTED OFFICIALS.

As evidence, the group posted screenshots of Parler posts calling for Vice President Mike Pence to face a firing squad and encouraging “American Patriots” to return to the capital on January 19th “carrying Our weapons.”

The group points out that both Google and Apple have clear rules against violent threats and moderation of content. Apple’s App Store says apps must have “a method for filtering objectionable material from being posted” and “a mechanism to report offensive content.” Google’s Play Store bars apps that “depict or facilitate gratuitous violence or other dangerous activities,” and that “we don’t allow apps that contain or facilitate threats, harassment, or bullying.”

How elites are leveraging COVID to ‘Reset’ the world

David Kupelian lays out momentous choices facing Americans in the new year

By David Kupelian
Published January 3, 2021 at 2:37pm

Looking back at 2020, it’s undeniable that this has been one of the strangest years in American history – from January’s sham presidential impeachment, to the coronavirus pandemic and economy-destroying national lockdown, to widespread hysterical demands to “defund the police” while Marxist mobs burned and looted American cities, to Big Tech scandalously suppressing journalism it doesn’t like, to Big Media openly siding with the senile and corrupt Joe Biden while portraying President Donald Trump as a mentally ill, racist would-be dictator, to November’s breathtakingly rigged election – likely the most crooked and corrupt in our history.

In between these wall-to-wall crises, blue-state mayors and governors still found time to close churches while keeping strip clubs open, destroy as many small businesses as possible while encouraging rioting, and threaten law-abiding citizens with arrest and imprisonment for having too many people in their home for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

The widespread anxiety, confusion, distrust, and most of all, anger and fear resulting from these events all but guarantees ongoing division and violence throughout America, if not outright civil war. It’s been well over a century since American national politics was this ugly and explosive.

Yet what is happening in our nation today cannot truly be understood by looking at it through a political lens.

It’s often said “politics is downstream from culture” – that is, a society’s political life reflects its citizens’ deeply held cultural values. But culture in turn is downstream from religion, which represents the “unseen realm” of ultimate issues like good and evil, sin and redemption, the origin, meaning and purpose of life, and where we spend eternity. This all-important moral-spiritual dimension in which human beings uniquely dwell is the only frame of reference by which one can really comprehend what is happening in America right now.

For the great war in which Americans are engaged is not left versus right, Democrat versus Republican, or Trump supporters versus Biden supporters. Rather, it is one of good versus evil. And as usual, it features a great evil masquerading as noble and good, while accusing what is good and decent of being immoral and reprobate. It’s a classic case of projection – evil pretending to be good while condemning good as evil.

Which brings us to the “Great Reset.”

What we cryptically call “the left” is, of course, always trying to “reset,” “reform” or “transform” the world, as it is a fundamentally revolutionary worldview. Barack Obama, just prior to being elected president in 2008, famously said, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Today, Joe Biden likewise insists he wants to “transform” America. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, breathlessly anticipating the upcoming Georgia runoff races that will determine control of the U.S. Senate, announced with a flourish: “Now we take Georgia, and then we change America!”

What are they all talking about? In a world of very deeply flawed human beings, America has already been blessed with the most enlightened, noble, moral, compassionate and liberty-preserving political and economic system in world history.

Superficially, those on the hard left claim they want a socialist utopia (though most avoid the word “socialist”) where justice and equality prevail. But that’s not the prize they truly seek. Let’s take a closer look.

‘Build back

In the case of the “Great Reset,” global elites, including right here in America, are intent on leveraging the coronavirus pandemic into a completely new world system.

The first and most pivotal phase of the Great Reset plan under cover of COVID is, of course, winning the 2020 presidential election through a dizzyingly multifaceted attack on the integrity of the U.S. election system itself, on top of a unified campaign by Big Media and Big Tech to elect Joe Biden at all costs.

Whereas Trump, as president, has represented “America First” and all the traditional moral and constitutional underpinnings of genuine American greatness, Biden is fully on board with the “Great Reset.”

In fact, Biden’s campaign chose as its official campaign slogan the seemingly innocuous phrase, “Build Back Better.”

“Build Back Better” is literally the slogan of the “Great Reset,” coined by its originator and main advocate, World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab.

Under cover of the COVID-19 pandemic, Schwab insists the entire world must “act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies,” meaning, as he explains, “we need a ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism.” In other words, socialism.

Indeed, right now, the elite class in America and around the world is planning – in fact, openly bragging about – the “Great Reset,” whereby they intend to leverage the COVID era’s widespread public fears and government’s rampant emergency powers to “reset” the world’s economic, social and governmental systems to institute a “more just” global socialist utopia – run by them.

Schwab, patriarch of the “Great Reset,” explains: “The level of cooperation and ambition this implies is unprecedented. But it is not some impossible dream. In fact, one silver lining of the pandemic is that it has shown how quickly we can make radical changes to our lifestyles. Almost instantly, the crisis forced businesses and individuals to abandon practices long claimed to be essential, from frequent air travel to working in an office.”

“Every country,” insists Schwab, “from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed.”

Prince Charles is a key advocate for the Great Reset, as is International Monetary Fund chief economist Gina Gopinath, U.N. Secretary General António Guterres, as well as heads of many major corporations, including Microsoft.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry is all in, recently exclaiming: “The notion of a reset is more important than ever before. I personally believe … we’re at the dawn of an extremely exciting time.”

In fact, during a World Economic Forum panel discussion in mid-November, Kerry – who figures to be a special presidential envoy for Biden on climate issues – publicly affirmed not only that the Biden administration will support the Great Reset, but that it “will happen with greater speed and with greater intensity than a lot of people might imagine.”

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is remarkably frank about the subterfuge under which the global Reset elites are operating: “This pandemic has provided an opportunity for a reset. This is our chance to accelerate our pre-pandemic efforts to reimagine our economic systems that actually address global challenges like extreme poverty, inequality and climate change.”

Many might ask, what’s wrong with combatting poverty and inequality?

What many Democrat Party voters – especially younger millennials – naively fail to comprehend is twofold: First, not only doesn’t socialism cure poverty – in fact, it creates it – but socialism also necessitates turning a society into a totalitarian dictatorship; after all, radical wealth redistribution only occurs when the brute power of government compels it.

But even more fundamentally, the world’s elites do not really want equality for everybody. Historically, from Stalin to Mao to Chavez, Marxist/socialist leaders have never been truly interested in everyone being equal. That’s just happy-talk to seduce the masses. They want, first and foremost, power, they want wealth and privilege for themselves, they want glory, they want revenge on their enemies, and they want worship.

In a word, they want to be gods.

Which brings us to the nuclear core of the issue: The original temptation in the Garden of Eden was, “Ye shall be as gods.” (Genesis 3:5)

But when humans try to become gods, they turn into devils. Indeed, from abortion up to the moment of birth to the celebration of transgenderism to mandatory gun confiscation to the outright suppression of free speech, today’s Democratic Party increasingly is promoting policies and agendas that are either insane or evil – or both.

Evangelist Franklin Graham recently urged Georgia voters to reject what he called the “demonic” agenda of the Democratic Party in the two January elections to determine the majority in the U.S. Senate.

“I hope the church and all Georgians will see through this demonic-driven abortion agenda,” he said. “This is not just a political issue, it is a moral and biblical issue. We need leadership in our nation that sees the wisdom in defending life.”

Graham, the CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, noted that Senate candidate “Rev.” Raphael Warnock had tweeted his support for “reproductive justice.”

“Justice”? What an ironic term to use, when abortion represents the biggest and most significant injustice of our time, and perhaps in all of American history – the genocide of tens of millions of innocent human babies.

Summarizing America’s current state, Los Angeles mega-pastor John MacArthur recently told Laura Ingraham: “America’s in a moral free fall. … You murder the babies in the womb. If they survive the womb, you try to seduce them into transgender sexual deviation when they’re young. If they survive that, you corrupt them with a godless education. If they survive that, you have divorce in the family. And if they grow to be adults, we drown them in a sea of pornography. This is a nation so far down in the sewer of immorality and wickedness that nothing surprises me.”

Barring a spiritual-cultural turnaround in the United States of America, where is all this leading?

A barcode for every human on the planet?

Since the coronavirus originated in China, and since Joe Biden is profoundly compromised with regard to China because of his family’s corrupt financial activities with that nation, and since Big Tech and so many U.S.-based mega-companies are in total thrall to China both for its vast retail markets and its cheap labor pool, it is reasonable to wonder: How exactly does China fit into the plan to “reset” the world under cover of COVID?

That’s easy: China is the leader.

Recently, in a chilling story headlined “Give Everyone a Barcode? China Trying to Use COVID Fears to Launch Global Tracking System for Humans,” the Christian Broadcast Network reported: “China’s communist leader Xi Jinping is calling for countries across the world to accept a global COVID-19 tracking system that uses QR codes in an attempt to expedite international travel.”

It was during a Nov. 21 virtual G20 leaders’ meeting that Xi proposed the “global mechanism” to deploy an electronic barcode that would help determine travelers’ health status.

“China has proposed a global mechanism on the mutual recognition of health certificates based on nucleic acid test results in the form of internationally accepted QR codes. We hope more countries will join this mechanism,” Xi said, according to the CBN report, which explained:

The system provides users with a color code based on their risk of exposure to the coronavirus and the QR codes, or bar codes can be read on mobile devices.

A green code indicates that someone is safe to travel, while an orange or red code signifies the need to quarantine for up to two weeks.

Xi didn’t elaborate on the type of app or QR code system that would be used and who would design it.

Not everyone is thrilled with a brutal communist dictator, one openly bent on ruling the entire planet, launching such a new surveillance and people control system.

As CBN reported, Human Rights Watch executive director Kenneth Roth tweeted, “Beware of the Chinese government’s proposal for a global QR code system. An initial focus on health could easily become a Trojan Horse for broader political monitoring and exclusion, akin to the dangers associated with China’s social-credit system.”

And according to some Christians, the report concluded, such technology-driven measures and tracking systems look a lot like “another step toward the fulfillment of the End Times ‘Mark of the Beast’ prophesied 2,000 years ago in the biblical book of Revelation.”

Revelation 13:16-17 famously warns: “It also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name.”

Conclusion

Is “The Great Reset” inevitable? Not in America – unless 74 million American adults who voted for Donald Trump throw up their hands and resign themselves to a rapid decline and ultimate loss of the nation they labored to build, and in many cases fought and bled to defend.

America is still home to tens of millions of praying, Bible-believing, freedom-loving, right-thinking Americans. Rage and violence are not the answer, but boldly – as happy warriors – standing up for truth and for the nation that has blessed us all is now the order of the day, and will remain so for a long time to come.

America indeed needs a great reset, but not one envisioned by deluded, power-obsessed, sociopathic elites. Rather, the reset we truly need is a repentance-fueled revival that will invite God’s renewed blessing on us and restore our nation to its former greatness and goodness.

APOCALYPTIC’ VOLCANO ALERT IN CARIBBEAN: 100,000 RESIDENTS WARNED OF EMERGENCY EVACUATION

BY ADAM ELIYAHU BERKOWITZ | JAN 3, 2021 | BIBLICAL NEWS

He looks at the earth and it trembles; He touches the mountains and they smoke. Psalms 104:32 (The Israel BibleTM)

As 46 volcanoes go active this week, scientists are reminded that eruptions account for four major extinction events in the earth’s history.

CARIBBEAN VOLCANO ALERT

An orange alert has been announced as over 100,000 residents of St. Vincent and the Grenadines were warned that they may need to evacuate their homes within 24 hours as the La Soufrière volcano began spewing lava.  

Posted by UWI Seismic Research Centre on Thursday, December 31, 2020

Last Tuesday, the volcano began spewing gases and ash, forming a new dome, changing the lake that had formed in its crater. The volcano has been dormant since 1979 but an eruption in 1902 killed 1,680 people, just hours before the eruption of Mount Pelée on Martinique killing more than 30,000 people.

A yellow alert was also raised for the island of Martinique, an overseas French territory, on Tuesday due to increased seismic activity under the mountain observed last month.

Seventeen of the eastern Caribbean’s 19 live volcanoes are located on 11 islands, with the remaining two underwater near the island of Grenada, including one called Kick ‘Em Jenny that has been active in recent years.

Scientists have assured the public that the simultaneous increase in seismic activity of La Soufriere and Mount Pelee is not linked.

PRAYERS CALLED FOR

Mark Brantley, the Premier of nearby West Indies Nevis Island, said he is praying for the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines and called on all the people of the Caribbean to join in prayer. n a statement issued on December 30, Premier Brantley who is also the Foreign Affairs Minister of St Kitts and Nevis said:

 “With the devastation already caused by COVID-19 and its disastrous impact on our small vulnerable states, our region cannot afford another disaster. I urge us all to pray for the continued safety and security of the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.”

46 VOLCANOS AROUND THE WORLD

But the Caribbean is not the only region of the world experiencing volcanic eruptions. Lava erupted from vents in Mount Kilauea, Hawaii last week. Three volcanoes in Japan have just started rumbling. A total of 300 earthquakes were recorded under the Kirishimayama volcano earlier last month. A total of 423 explosions were recorded last week at Suwanosejima’s Ontake Crater and the Minamidake Crater at Aira Caldera’s Sakurajima volcano has been emitting alarming levels of sulfur dioxide, indicating increased activity. Other eruptions were reported at Lewotolo and Tengger Caldera in Indonesia, Ruapehu in New Zealand.

In total, 46 volcanos are currently rumbling or erupting with seven of them waking up in recent weeks. Although detailed statistics are not kept on daily activity, the Smithsonian Institution Global Volcanism Program reported that there are generally around 20 volcanoes actively erupting on any particular day, making the current activity exceptional indeed. 

SCIENTIST WARNS ONE HUGE VOLCANO COULD SET OFF CHAIN OF APOCALYPTIC ERUPTIONS

American author Stephen Petranek revealed during a TedTalk in 2014 how one huge eruption in the future could lead to a chain reaction, potentially marking the end of the world.

“We do not live on a nice, stable solid planet,” Petranek said. “It is mostly molten rock and iron and it has a nuclear reactor in the center of it that keeps it hot. We’re, like, on these life rafts floating overall this molten rock. Earth’s crust is so constantly folding in on itself that we cannot find a stone on the surface of the Earth that is as old as the planet. 98 percent of all the species on Earth have gone extinct and volcanoes are the biggest reason why. Of the 11 biggest extinctions, four were caused by volcanoes”

“Studies link the late Triassic extinction to volcanic eruptions and outflows, and a new study links this amazing extinction of life – 95 percent of life on Earth – to volcanoes that essentially stretched and all went off at the same time. They essentially stretched from what is now New Jersey to what is now Morocco.”

In our past, Earth has opened up many times and flowed out for centuries – India is an outflow of volcanism.”

Mr. Petranek detailed the after-effects of such an event and how it could spark a nuclear winter.

He added: “Volcanic activity fills the sky with soot and hot ash and buries every living thing and blocks the sun for so many summers, the plants on land and plankton in the sea die, and when they die, we die. Volcanoes can also produce so much carbon dioxide that they will massively warm the planet and create a runaway greenhouse effect, which is the opposite of what we often expect from them.

PROPHETS WARN VOLCANOS MARK END-OF DAYS

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

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

Report- Religious Persecution Will Significantly Worsen In China And India

by Andrew Bieszad on January 3, 2021 in FeaturedGeneral

Religious persecution is increasing around the world, but China and India are two major hot spots to watch, since there is open hatred for all things Christian in both nations, and there has been no secret made, barely hidden, that there is a long-term plan to eventually exterminate Christianity and Christians from both nations in the name of nationalist violence.

As such the Christian Post reports that religious persecution is likely going to increase in 2021.

Though religious persecution in China and India is expected to increase in 2021, exposure to the Bible is increasing in North Korea, the world’s most repressive country, according to the annual Persecution Trends survey from Release International.

In its latest report, RI, an international Christian watchdog organization for persecuted Christians worldwide, said that persecution is “thriving” in China and will likely increase in the new year.

RI cited the recent passage of tough new laws controlling religion, the shuttering of numerous churches, and the increasing number of registered churches forced to install CCTV cameras and put up posters proclaiming communist ideals and beliefs.

However, the Chinese Communist Party has “bought the silence of the international community” through increased dependence on trade, it said.

“The government of President Xi Jinping is increasing its ‘clean up’ of anything that does not advance the communist agenda. They appear to believe that they can achieve this by systematic opposition,” the group warned.

Corroborating other reports, RI said that China has been exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic to tighten restrictions on underground believers.

Earlier this year, it was reported that amid the outbreak, impoverished Christian villagers in China were ordered to renounce their faith and replace displays of Jesus with portraits of Chairman Mao and President Xi or risk losing their welfare benefits.

“The Chinese government is trying every way to take advantage of the virus by increasing the crackdown against Christian churches,” said RI partner Bob Fu, of ChinaAid. “It has accelerated particular campaigns, such as the forced removal of crosses.”

The group also predicted that in India, intolerance toward Christians and other religious minorities will continue to grow during 2021, largely due to growing Hindu nationalism. (source)

The trend of Christian persecution, since it is directly tied to nationalism and politics, is not going away. While the US will criticize Christian persecution in China, she will be silent when it comes to India, since she is seeking to use India as a political weapons against the Chinese, dividing the two billion-strong giants to battle in the Himalayas while attacking China on other fronts.

The biggest losers, no surprise, are the Christians, who will find no real allies at all save for when it is considered to be politically expedient, and which can change at any time. It would be wise to note then that Christians must care for each other, and prepare for the worst as things become more difficult leading up to war in order to be able to help others, since one will not be able to rely or trust in governments at all to do this.

30,000 Quakes In 4 Months! If Antarctic Ice Shelves Start Melting Rapidly, It Will Create A Planetary Disaster Of Epic Proportions

December 18, 2020 by Michael Snyder

Under the continent of Antarctica, there is a “mantle plume producing almost as much heat as Yellowstone supervolcano”, and this has been melting ice plates from underneath at a staggering pace.  If that superheated rock were to move even closer to the surface, that would potentially greatly accelerate the melting of Antarctic ice, and the consequences for the entire planet would be quite dramatic.  As you will see below, if all Antarctic ice were to melt, the entire eastern seaboard of the United States would vanish.  In other words, there would be no more New York, no more Washington D.C. and no more state of Florida.

That is why what is happening in Antarctica right now is deeply alarming many experts.  According to the University of Chile, there have been over 30,000 earthquakes in Antarctica since the end of the month of August, and this is extremely unusual.

Of course the quakes are not scattered evenly throughout the continent.  In fact, the vast majority of them have been happening at a location where “several tectonic plates and microplates meet”

Scientists with the university’s National Seismological Center said the small quakes – including one stronger shake of magnitude 6 – were detected in the Bransfield Strait, a 60-mile wide (96-km) ocean channel between the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctic Peninsula.

Several tectonic plates and microplates meet near the strait, leading to frequent rumbling, but the past three months have been unusual, according to the center.

Obviously something big is taking place, and we do know that the rate at which the Shetland Islands have been separating from the Antarctic peninsula has been accelerating

The shakes have become so frequent that the strait itself, once increasing in width at a rate of about 7 or 8 mm (0.30 inch) a year is now expanding 15 cm (6 inches) a year, the center said.

“It’s a 20-fold increase … which suggests that right this minute … the Shetland Islands are separating more quickly from the Antarctic peninsula,” said Sergio Barrientos, the center’s director.

The reason why what is happening in Antarctica is so important to the rest of us is because of the possibility that Antarctic ice could start melting at a much more rapid pace.

The massive ice shelves which cover the continent have been melting from underneath for quite a while, and NASA says that a “mantle plume producing almost as much heat as Yellowstone supervolcano” is largely responsible…

A mantle plume producing almost as much heat as Yellowstone supervolcano appears to be melting part of West Antarctica from beneath.

Researchers at NASA have discovered a huge upwelling of hot rock under Marie Byrd Land, which lies between the Ross Ice Shelf and the Ross Sea, is creating vast lakes and rivers under the ice sheet. The presence of a huge mantle plume could explain why the region is so unstable today, and why it collapsed so quickly at the end of the last Ice Age, 11,000 years ago.

Could all of the seismic activity that has been occurring in recent months be a sign that conditions under the continent are starting to become a lot more unstable?

If so, we could potentially be facing a scenario that most of us never dreamed was possible.  According to one recent study, an acceleration of the melting process could actually destroy giant ice shelves “in minutes or hours”…

As meltwater rushes through the cracks in the Antarctic ice shelves, it can destroy the ice shelves in minutes or hours. This is amplified by the warming atmosphere, and as the warming continues, this phenomenon may happen more often than not. A study published back in August showed that at least half of the ice shelves are at risk of having this happening.

The study suggested that around 50% to 70% of the ice shelves holding Antarctic glaciers in place could become weak and even collapse with surges of meltwater. Ching-Yao Lai, a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Marine Geology & Geophysics at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in New York and lead author of the study said, “What we find is that the amount of melting is important, but where the melting happens is also important.”

So what would happen if all of the ice in Antarctica suddenly melted?

Well, according to Geologist Ed Mathez of the American Museum of Natural History, oceans would rise approximately 70 meters all over the globe

Thank you for your question. The simple answer is no. The whole world will never be underwater. But our coastlines would be very different.

If all the ice covering Antarctica , Greenland, and in mountain glaciers around the world were to melt, sea level would rise about 70 meters (230 feet). The ocean would cover all the coastal cities. And land area would shrink significantly. But many cities, such as Denver, would survive.

And according to National Geographic, every U.S. city that sits along the east coast of the United States “would vanish, along with Florida and the Gulf Coast”…

The entire Atlantic seaboard would vanish, along with Florida and the Gulf Coast. In California, San Francisco’s hills would become a cluster of islands and the Central Valley a giant bay. The Gulf of California would stretch north past the latitude of San Diego—not that there’d be a San Diego.

Needless to say, we have a great interest in making sure that all of that ice does not melt.

Unfortunately, today Antarctica is one of the fastest warming places on Earth due to all of the heat that is being generated from below.

We live at a time when earthquakes are happening in diverse places and unusual seismic activity is occurring all over the planet on a regular basis.

Most of us assume that these seismic events are nothing to be concerned about and that life will continue as it normally does for the foreseeable future.

But what if it doesn’t?

Many believe that we are entering a time when major Earth changes will dramatically affect the entire planet, and without a doubt we are already seeing very unusual things happen all over the globe.

It is definitely not normal for there to be 30,000 earthquakes in Antarctica in a four month period, and we will continue to watch the continent very closely as we head into 2021.

Because if the ice in Antarctica starts to melt much more quickly, none of our lives will ever be the same again.
