HUNTER BIDEN ASSOCIATE TONY BOBULINSKI FLIPS AND PROVIDES SENATE INVESTIGATORS WITH DOCUMENTS PROVING JOE BIDEN USED VP OFFICE FOR PROFIT

Tony Bobulinski, the recipient of one of the emails retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop, went public on Wednesday night with a statement saying he confirms its authenticity and detailed how former Vice President Joe Biden — the Democrat nominee for president in this year’s election, which is just over 10 days away — was personally involved in many dealings with his son’s business associates. Documents that Bobulinski provided to Senators have begun appearing in public, and have been obtained by a number of media outlets including Breitbart News.

by Geoffrey Grider October 22, 2020

Joe Biden family insider Tony Bobulinski has provided a trove of documents to U.S. Senate investigators from the Senate Homeland Security and Senate Finance Committees, Breitbart News has learned.

The fake news media spent nearly 3 years breathlessly “reporting” on the phony Russian Collusion scandal they invented to try and depose President Donald Trump, and despite having no evidence of any kind on any level, they held on to it like to dog with a bone. Now we have a legitimate scandal involving Democratic candidate Joe Biden, with mountains of actual proof coming to light on a daily basis, and the media remains stonily silent, seeing if they can ride it out. But we won’t let them do that, will we?

Make no mistake about it, this is not the “Hunter Biden Scandal”, not by a long shot. This is the Joe Biden Scandal, something that he many years ago organized, executed and carried out using people like his son and his brother as the “bag men” to bring the money in. This is Biden Incorporated, and before he went senile, he was the mastermind behind it all.

I am asking all of the hundreds of thousands of NTEB readers across America to share this article in as many places as you can as soon as you can. Support for Joe Biden is dropping, and Trump is advancing swiftly in the polls. Let’s make sure both trends continue, thank you!

Biden Insider Tony Bobulinski Provides Trove of Documents to Senate Investigators

FROM BREITBART NEWS: Tony Bobulinski, the recipient of one of the emails retrieved from Hunter Biden’s laptop, went public on Wednesday night with a statement saying he confirms its authenticity and detailed how former Vice President Joe Biden — the Democrat nominee for president in this year’s election, which is just over 10 days away — was personally involved in many dealings with his son’s business associates.

Documents that Bobulinski provided to Senators have begun appearing in public, and have been obtained by a number of media outlets including Breitbart News.

In them, text messages, emails, and other documents illustrate a larger picture of concern regarding the Biden family’s operating procedures, and deep connections that Joe Biden himself has to all of this.

“DON’T MENTION JOE BEING INVOLVED, IT’S ONLY WHEN U ARE FACE TO FACE,” BIDEN FAMILY ASSOCIATE JAMES GILLIAR—THE HEAD OF J2CR—SAYS IN ONE WHATSAPP TEXT MESSAGE THAT BOBULINSKI PROVIDED TO THE SENATE COMMITTEES. “I KNOW U KNOW THAT BUT THEY ARE PARANOID.”

Other text messages reveal details about the negotiations between Chinese officials and the Biden family. In one 2017 text message, Hunter Biden himself says that a Chinese investor intended to become partners with him in order to “be partners with the Bidens.”

Senate officials confirmed to Fox News and other outlets that Bobulinski is cooperating with them. All of the documents that Bobulinski provided to the Senate investigators have also been provided to media outlets including Breitbart News.

Bobulinski’s statement and cooperation with Senate investigators seems to have blown the scandal wide open, as Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) noted on Thursday morning that the Senate Judiciary Committee voted to subpoena Twitter and Facebook over the tech companies’ move to censor the original New York Post story that first revealed emails from Hunter Biden’s laptop. Hawley said that the committee did not have enough GOP support even 24 hours ago for subpoenas of Twitter and Facebook, and that everything seems to have changed in the last day.

Yet another warning that makes it clear that we should all be bracing for a major seismic event along the west coast

October 19, 2020 by Michael Snyder

While most Americans remain completely fixated on the upcoming presidential election, large earthquakes continue to rattle the Ring of Fire at an alarming rate.  On Monday, a magnitude 7.5 quake struck near the little town of Sand Point, Alaska, and it was felt over a very large area.  In fact, it is being reported that shaking could be felt “as far away as Chugiak, Anchorage and Bethel”.  Following the initial earthquake, there was a series of very large aftershocks.  As I write this article, there have already been 19 aftershocks of at least magnitude 4.0 in the region.  By the time most of you read this article, that number will almost certainly be higher.  Sadly, even though we have been witnessing a lot of shaking along the southern coast of Alaska and the west coast of the continental United States in recent months, very few experts seem concerned about the possibility that a very large seismic event could be coming.

But they should be.

Before I get to that, let’s talk about what just happened.  The magnitude 7.5 quake triggered a tsunami warning for almost everyone living along the southern Alaska coastline, and two relatively small tsunami waves were reported

The magnitude 7.5 earthquake near Sand Point, Alaska, generated a tsunami, Scott Langley with the National Tsunami Warning Center said Monday afternoon.

Langley said the tsunami sent two waves, each measuring 130 centimeters (4 feet, 3 inches) high. But observers onshore reported the waves appeared to be 1.5 feet (45.7 centimeters) and 2 feet (61 cm) over high tide.

The good news is that this event did not do a whole lot of damage, but it definitely frightened many of the local residents.  Here is just one example

Candace Nelson, her kids and dogs hid under the table as the earthquake shook Cold Bay, about 90 miles west of Sand Point.

“My kids are all doing good. Brooke, Wilder and Scout all huddled under our kitchen table till the shaking stopped,” she told CNN as the family waited for more news about the tsunami. “The dogs were more concerned as to what the heck we were doing under the table.”

The location where this earthquake happened is not too far from where we witnessed a magnitude 7.8 quake back in July.

Could it be possible that all of this activity is building up to something even larger?

According to one expert, the area where these quakes have been occurring is right where “the Pacific Plate actually goes underneath the North American Plate”…

“This is an area where the Pacific Plate is subducting underneath the North American Plate. And because of that, the Pacific Plate actually goes underneath the North American Plate, where it melts,” Caruso said, noting that’s why there are volcanoes in the region.

Further south along the Ring of Fire, a swarm of hundreds of earthquakes in southern California was getting international attention just a few weeks ago

Hundreds of small earthquakes continue to rattle southern California, sending light shaking into San Diego County, as experts raise the odds that a much larger tremor could strike in the coming days.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported that hundreds of earthquakes had been reported by Wednesday night in the Salton Trough near Westmorland and more than a dozen more sizeable earthquakes on Thursday.

I have been warning over and over again that it is just a matter of time before “the Big One” finally hits California.  Scientists have told us that the San Andreas Fault has the potential “to unzip all at once”, and if that happens it would be a disaster unlike anything that we have ever seen before in all of U.S. history.  Experts have warned that some portions of southern California could sink by several feet “relatively instantaneously”, and that such an event “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”.

Meanwhile, Steve Quayle and others have been relentlessly sounding the alarm about the Cascadia Subduction Zone.  If a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck along the Cascadia Subduction Zone right now, it would only take 15 to 20 minutes for the very first tsunami waves to start hitting the coast of Washington.  Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger believes that such an event could produce a giant wall of water up to 100 feet high that would utterly destroy everything that it encounters.

In a previous article, I included a quote from the former head of FEMA’s Region X about what such a disaster would mean for those living in the Northwest

If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s the very big one.

…By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region will be unrecognizable. Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says, “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”

In the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5 covers some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people.

The phrase “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast” has stuck with me ever since I first read that quote.

Scientists assure us that it is just a matter of time before this actually happens, but most people are not taking those warnings very seriously.

And let us not forget that there are several major volcanoes in the Northwest as well.

In particular, I have been deeply concerned about the potential for an eruption of Mt. Rainier for a very long time.  I once wrote an article in which I dubbed Mt. Rainier “the most dangerous mountain in the United States”, and that statement is definitely still true today.

Scientists tell us that someday a massive eruption of Mt. Rainier will send super-heated tsunamis of hot mud known as “lahars” racing toward highly populated communities in the Northwest at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour.  For many, official warnings will come far too late and they will die before they even realize what hit them.

For the next several months, I will be watching seismic activity along the U.S. portion of the Ring of Fire much more carefully than normal.

There has been so much shaking going on already, and an unprecedented disaster could very literally happen at any moment.

The Winepress of God’s Wrath and baptism

Exclusive: Scott Lively declares, ‘The imminent Antichrist Kingdom is unstoppable’

By Scott Lively
Published October 12, 2020 at 7:17pm

Christianity has been waning in America for a long time. Christendom is fragmented into a thousand diverse splinters, much of the top leadership of its largest denominations, from Roman Catholicism to the Southern Baptists, has been corrupted with Marxist ideology, and its most liberal denominations have completely abandoned biblical truth in favor of what I call Christian-flavored Secular Humanism. Many signal their subjugation to a false Christ by flying the rainbow flag; others pretend to remain faithful but reject the “meat of the word” for politically correct pablum they spoon-feed to attendees who don’t know the difference because that don’t actually read the Bible, and because their sense of reality has been shaped by leftist public education and the even further leftist corporate media.

By leftist, I mean atheist, because that is the first principle of Marxism: We can be our own gods, just as Satan promised Adam and Eve as their reward for rebellion. Marxism’s religion is humanism, its moral code is political correctness, and its Scriptures are the false narratives it relentlessly preaches. I believe humanism is the final perfection of Satanism, refined over millennia to its most deceptive and seductive form.

It is no surprise that humanism would be the dominant religious theme of this last generation on the threshold of the Antichrist kingdom, especially since its adherents deny it is a religion, thus unifying all the deceived pew-sitters in all the world’s religions and the supposedly “non-religious” together under one banner. Under that banner, the pursuit of “science based” human self-perfection replaces belief that our Creator God actively controls all things according to His own plan. The true definition of atheism is not that one says “there is no God” but that one acts as if whatever God he holds (if any) has no real power or plan. The “Christian” version of this is described in 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

But, as the true God advised Elijah in 1 Kings 19:18, “Nevertheless, I have reserved seven thousand in Israel who have not bowed to Baal.” God always preserves for Himself a remnant. Elijah, fleeing through the wilderness to escape the fierce wrath of Queen Jezebel, had lost hope. Although he had performed great miracles, his world under Ahab and Jezebel grew worse not better.

Every season of wickedness must have its harvest time. As God said to Abraham about the Holy Land that He promised him: “Know for certain that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not their own. … You, however, will go to your fathers in peace and … In the fourth generation your descendants will return here, for the iniquity of the Amorites is not yet complete.” Their sin had not fully ripened.

Soon, as is warned/promised in Romans 11, the “fullness of the Gentiles will be complete”: the culmination of a season lasting 2,000 years. Then, as Jesus explained in Matthew 13:24-29, there will be a harvest of wheat (the righteous) and tares (the wicked posing as righteous). In my theology, that occurs on Yom Teruah at the start of the 10 Days of Awe/Wrath, when the Bride of Christ begins the event called the Wedding Feast of the Lamb in the spiritual realm. Back on earth during that 10 days, the bowl judgments are poured out as a final effort by God in His mercy to persuade the wicked to repent, but they refuse (Revelation 16:10-11) and instead besiege God’s city, Jerusalem, to destroy it (Zechariah 12). That triggers the great Battle of Armageddon, the salvation of the Torah-faithful Hebrews who were sealed against death by God (Revelation 7:3-8, Zechariah 12:10, and Isaiah 59:18-20 as cited in Romans 11:26) and, finally, the penultimate event of the 10 days, called the Winepress of the Wrath of God (Zechariah 14:1-15). (This is the topic of my seventh installment of “The Prodigal Son Prophecy,” free by email request to scottlivelyministries@gmail.com).

“Swing your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of grapes from the vine of the earth, because its grapes are ripe. So the angel … gathered the grapes of the earth, and he threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and the blood that flowed from it rose as high as the bridles of the horses for a distance of [180 miles]” (Revelation 14:18-20). Then Revelation 19:11-21 and Zechariah 14 show how the Winepress event transitions into the grand finale as the King of Kings leads the Host of Heaven through that conquest to claim the earth for His Millennial Kingdom, parting the Mount of Olives for the freshly redeemed Hebrews and Mixed Multitude to escape through, just before He creates a literal Red Sea of blood in thematic parallel to Moses in Exodus 14.

The imminent Antichrist Kingdom is unstoppable. No revivals can prevent it. Truth cannot thwart it once it begins. It must unfold according to prophecy because there must be a harvest of the wicked, and God’s justice must be vindicated by their incorrigible defiance of Him.

What must we of the remnant do as we see that day approaching? The model was set by John the Baptist, whom Jesus identified as an Elijah: he conducted public immersion baptisms, which Jesus insisted on submitting to and later unequivocally commanded in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19). Baptism is not essential for salvation – which I believe is by faith alone in Christ alone. But it is far more important than the modern church treats it. It is the giant first step of sanctification after one is justified by confession of faith in Christ (itself typically the first step of the baptism ritual).

Infant “baptisms” (a common substitute for the Hebrew ritual of eighth-day infant circumcision) clearly don’t substitute for the immersion baptisms done by John the Baptist and the Apostles, since all or most of their earliest “baptisees” were presumably already circumcised. Instead, Christian baptism is something closer to the Hebrew Mikvah (“cleansing bath”) as a purification ritual, reflecting the deliberate intention to be cleansed from sin. As Paul teaches in Colossians 2:11–12, self-sought baptism accomplishes the spiritual goal of circumcision, but only through the volitional act of “putting off your sinful nature,” which only adults and intellectually mature children are capable of.

I have baptized many people: in the Jordan River, the English Channel, mountain streams, swimming pools and about 30 people one day in the splash pool of an inflatable water slide. In the spirit of Elijah John, I will begin doing more baptisms as open-invitation public events, and I urge other remnant believers to do the same as a way to promote obedience to Christ, revive the church and to signal the urgency of the times.

UNITED NATIONS COMBINING THE WORLD’S LARGEST ABORTION PROVIDERS TO CREATE A UNIFIED GLOBAL NETWORK TO SLAUGHTER CHILDREN AS A ‘HUMAN RIGHT’

The U.N. made the announcement on September 29 to commemorate so-called International Safe Abortion Day, with the stated goal of addressing “unsafe abortion” in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The partnership, headed by the WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, will bring together U.N. entities with the world’s largest abortion providers, including the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Ipas, and Marie Stopes International, to promote “comprehensive abortion care,” including access to self-administered telemedicine abortion, as an essential service and a “human right.”

by Geoffrey Gride rOctober 12, 2020

Various elements of the United Nations system, including the World Health Organization, UNICEF, UNFPA, and the World Bank, will partner with abortion groups to advance a “human right” to abortion.

 

Like a scene from the bible, the United Nations is creating a global consortium of abortion providers, demanding that the killing of one’s own baby be elevated to the status of a human right. Even Adolf Hitler, in his wildest fantasies creating factories dedicated to the destruction of human souls, didn’t think this big. Why is this happening now? Because this lost world is preparing themselves to receive Antichrist, that’s why. I mean that literally, by the way, no metaphors here.

“Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked of the wise men, was exceeding wroth, and sent forth, and slew all the children that were in Bethlehem, and in all the coasts thereof, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had diligently enquired of the wise men. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.” Matthew 2:16-18 (KJB)

The Liberal position on abortion used be that they wanted it to be “rare, safe and legal”, but my how that wheel has turned. Now it is literally an ocean of blood that consumes 3,200 babies every 24 hours in America, 36% of which are black babies, and that’s not all. Both New York and Virginia have already passed laws allowing the babies to be killed on their due date, and even a little after that. This is the true spirit of Antichrist, that murderous, unpitying spirit, that is never satisfied no matter how much blood it receives. But just remember, the bible says that God is the “avenger” of those who trust in Him and cannot defend themselves, and that pay day is not only coming someday, but it’s coming someday very soon.

FUN FACT: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris support due date abortion, and it will become the law of the land under their administration. Not only that, it will be celebrated as “progress and advancement” when in fact it will be a partnership with the Devil himself.

The United Nations Continues Its Abortion Advocacy

FROM YAHOO NEWS: The U.N. made the announcement on September 29 to commemorate so-called International Safe Abortion Day, with the stated goal of addressing “unsafe abortion” in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The partnership, headed by the WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, will bring together U.N. entities with the world’s largest abortion providers, including the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Ipas, and Marie Stopes International, to promote “comprehensive abortion care,” including access to self-administered telemedicine abortion, as an essential service and a “human right.”

By collaborating on “mitigation strategies” to reduce disruption in abortion access, in addition to “procurement and funding” for abortion services, the goal of the partnership is for Big Abortion and the U.N. to make abortion available and accessible on demand everywhere. The announcement goes so far as to highlight not only young girls but also “those with varying gender identities” as people who should be able to receive “abortion care.”

COOPERATION BETWEEN THE U.N. AND THE ABORTION INDUSTRY IS NOTHING NEW, BUT THE CORONAVIRUS CLIMATE HAS PAVED THE WAY FOR INCREASINGLY BRAZEN AND BIZARRE ALLIANCES. THIS IS A NEW DIRECTION FOR UNICEF AND THE WORLD BANK, FOR EXAMPLE, BOTH OF WHICH TRADITIONALLY HAVE STEERED CLEAR OF OVERT ABORTION ACTIVISM. ALTHOUGH IT’S COMMONPLACE, IT IS ESSENTIAL TO UNDERSCORE THAT U.N. ABORTION PROMOTION IS FUNDAMENTALLY AT ODDS WITH ITS INSTITUTIONAL MANDATE. NATIONAL GOVERNMENTS, NOT THE INTERNATIONAL BUREAUCRACY, SHOULD CHART THE COURSE FOR THE U.N. SYSTEM.

As long as pro-life governments exist — and there are many stalwart pro-life governments — it is inappropriate and illegitimate for the U.N. to unilaterally advance abortion on demand. In fact, the powerful pro-life voice of the United States alone renders the U.N.’s continual promotion of abortion promotion and this new partnership illicit.

As the U.S. recently articulated in a statement to the U.N.: “There is no international right to abortion, nor is there any duty on the part of States to finance or facilitate abortion.” This has been a consistent and frequent stance of the U.S. government, one that has garnered widespread support from countries across the globe.

Even so, the U.N. Secretary General recently identified abortion as central to the U.N.’s COVID-19 response, and the organization’s high commissioner for human rights expressed her support for “safe abortion day.” Similarly, in the partnership announcement, Ian Askew, director of the WHO Department of Sexual and Reproductive Health and Research, states that “eliminating unsafe abortion is one of the key components of the WHO Global reproductive health strategy.”

An October 15th Drill Has Been Set For This ‘Worst Case Scenario’ That Could Rip America In Two With Unimaginable Earth Changes Now Underway

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

With the year of 2020 already having cemented itself into the record books as one of the wildest and craziest years in US history on many different fronts, numerous new warning signs have been coming out over the last several days that, if they come to pass, could kick the absolute necessity of Americans to ‘prepare’ into ‘overdrive’

As we hear in the 1st video at the bottom of this story from ‘earthquake/earth-changes watcher’ Dutchsinse, he’s recently been witnessing thousands of sudden bursts of heat all around the New Madrid fault zone, as well as numerous oil + gas wells ‘flaring off’

Warning us within his video that these ‘hot spots’ seem to flicker on and off for 5 or 10 minutes before then vanishing, as our videographer also warns, this is occurring only along the edge of the North American craton in mass events, with other flare ups in Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Washington State, and Oregon (all along the craton edge!). 

And with the Central part of America now preparing for an apocalyptic earthquake in the “Great Central US Shakeout”, a a wide-ranging earthquake drill set for 10:15 a.m. on October 15th, with the goal of the drill being “to improve preparedness and draw attention to the earthquake hazards that exist in Illinois, across the country and around the world”, as this story over at The Telegraph reports, while it might seem that this area should be more concerned with flooding or tornadoes, a major earthquake is considered the worst-case disaster scenario by local and state emergency planners. 

And while some people reading this story might ask, why should they care about a New Madrid quake if they’re living hundreds to thousands of miles away from there, as the website for New Madrid, Missouri had reported, the New Madrid earthquakes of 1811 and 1812 were the biggest earthquakes in American history. They occurred in the central Mississippi Valley, but were felt as far away as New York City, Boston, Montreal, and Washington D.C. President James Madison and his wife Dolly felt them in the White House. From this story over at The Express before we continue.: 

The 150-mile long New Madrid Seismic Zone in New Madrid, Missouri, is the source of the concern, and is also thought to be overdue for a massive tremor, which would (directly) impact seven states – Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky, Tennessee and Mississippi. 

It has not seen significant earthquakes for more than 200 years. 

In the winter of 1811 and 1812 there were three earthquakes of magnitude 7 – as high as 7.7 – and a series of aftershocks across the American Midwest. 

The results were catastrophic, with the course of the Mississippi being diverted, chasms ripping open, and volcanoes of sand and water bursting through the ground. 

(ANP EMERGENCY FUNDRAISER: Due to unexpected health expenses and emergency repair billsplease consider donating to ANP to help keep us in this ‘Info-war’ for America at this most critical time in US history as we approach the 2020 election during a time of systematic ‘big tech’ censorship and widespread Democrat corruption.)

As we see in the map above, the ‘range of shaking’ for Midwestern vs Western quakes shows a much wider area for not only ‘damage inflicted’ but ‘shaking felt’ from the last great New Madrid quake than they’d expect from anything at all on the West coast. 

With well over 150 million people living in the ‘danger zone’ should a New Madrid quake be unleashed, as Steve Quayle recently warned in an important ‘final warning’ email, unimaginable earth changes are now underway that could quite literally rip our country in half at the New Madrid. 

Hello Steve — This report is about the DANGEROUS things happening along the New Madrid Fault Line and extending to the edges of the NORTH AMERICAN PLATE. 

1> There are totally visible hotspots along the fault even going to the bayou and gulf coast. Some hot spots are 1,100 degrees, and some have been measured by locals as high as 1,350 degrees at ground level. 

2> There are now planes constantly flying over this area because the results of the North American plate BENDING AND CRACKING into 2 pieces is a huge event. What the planes have discovered so far is that there are sub-surface cracks which go as DEEP as 600 kilometers down. 

3> The cracking and BENDING has already tripled the SUBDUCTION ZONE stress IN CASCADIA, 3X FROM 2 WEEKS AGO. 

4> The stress on the east coast IS also increased at least 3x in the SUBDUCTION ZONE.

Please read the rest of Steve Quayle’s recent ‘New Madrid’ warning email here. And with the New Madrid fault zone overdue for a big quake, and the last time one hit, the damage was widespread and catastrophic, we serve our families and loved ones best by preparing, even if we don’t live in the immediate area, as most of our ‘earthquake preps’ can be used in other emergencies as well.

According to this new story over at Zero Hedge, numerous ‘doomsday camps’ across America are now opening ahead of the election in just weeks that many are concerned will bring great violence to America. With the world’s ‘doomsday clock’ , the symbolic countdown to an apocalyptic global disaster, now at its ‘closest point to midnight’ in its 73-year history, the fact that the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists moved the clock from two minutes to midnight to 100 seconds to midnight, a 20-second advance, shows the “existential danger” that we may be in from many different threats in 2020.  

So while at this moment, we have no idea exactly what crisis will strike next, and we ourselves have no way of knowing exactly when a devastating New Madrid quake might hit America, with all of the other potentially apocalyptic scenarios that now surround us, ‘preparing’ will put us in a much better situation than 95% of the US population. So let’s go ahead and go over to Ready.gov for their earthquake prepping advice. 

So with our society in the process of breaking down all around us, preparing now for absolutely anything and everything is in our own and our family’s best interests, especially with Democrat and deep state traitors still not being held accountable for their crimes of treason and sedition against America, Democrats now pushing a ‘2nd wave covid-19 lockdown’ ahead, our next election only weeks away and looking more contentious than ever and now the New Madrid region ‘rocking and rolling’ with ‘directed energy weapons’ being beamed into the region sending us another sign that things could get very ugly, very quickly, in the days and weeks ahead.

TWO BOEING E-6B MERCURY AIRCRAFT KNOWN AS ‘DOOMSDAY PLANES’ WERE LAUNCHED MOMENTS AFTER NEWS OF PRESIDENT TRUMP’S POSITIVE COVID DIAGNOSIS REVEALED

The twin Doomsday Planes were seen in open-source satellite imagery in wee hours of Friday, shortly after the White House issued a statement that Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive. Both of them underwent the coronavirus tests after Hope Hicks, a top adviser to the US President, was confirmed to be infected with the contagious disease.

by Geoffrey Grider October 2, 2020

Two Boeing E-6B Mercury aircraft, also referred to as ‘Doomsday Planes’, went off both the US coasts for a brief span of time after the news of President Donald Trump contracting COVID-19 infection was confirmed. Experts observing this defence exercise view it as a “warning” for the nations marked as United States’ adversaries.

 

Talk about the ‘October Surprise’ that keeps on giving. Not only was the incredible news of President Trump and FLOTUS being COVID positive launched in the wee, small hours of Friday morning, something else was launched as well. Two Boing 3-6B Mercury aircraft known as ‘Doomsday Planes’ for their ability to launch nuclear strikes were launched as well. And all this on the Feast of Trumpets, to boot!

As of this writing, President Trump and FLOTUS are in quarantine, all campaign events for the president on hold, and the entire world is speculating what will happen next. What will happen next? Only the Lord knows the answer to that one, but I know this. When we said that God put Donald Trump in power to bring about the global shaking, boy, was that ever true. All this and it’s only October 2nd, just imagine what the rest of the month will bring.

‘Doomsday Planes’ Fly Off US Coast as Donald Trump Tests COVID-19 Positive, Experts See ‘Warning’ to Adversaries

FROM YAHOO NEWS: The planes were seen in open-source satellite imagery in wee hours of Friday, shortly after the White House issued a statement that Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive. Both of them underwent the coronavirus tests after Hope Hicks, a top adviser to the US President, was confirmed to be infected with the contagious disease.

Tim Hogan, an open-source intelligence expert, took to social media to point out the link between Trump testing positive and E-6Bs flying in the airspace.

“THERE’S AN E-6B MERCURY OFF THE EAST COAST NEAR DC…I LOOKED BECAUSE I WOULD EXPECT THEM TO POP UP IF HE TESTS POSITIVE. IT’S A MESSAGE TO THE SMALL GROUP OF ADVERSARIES WITH” SUBMARINE-LAUNCHED BALLISTIC MISSILES AND INTERCONTINENTAL BALLISTIC MISSILES,” HE SAID ON TWITTER.

U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM) issued a statement to clarify that the taking-off of planes was preplanned and not linked to Trump testing positive. “The timing was coincidental,” a STRATCOM spokesperson was reported as saying.

Notably, STRATCOM is in-charge of overseeing America’s nuclear arsenal. A clarification was issued by the department after experts pointed that the flying of E-6Bs is linked to a message on the nuclear front which the US wants to convey to the “enemies”.

The Doomsday planes have earned their tag as they are capable of sending instructions to nuclear submarines. The weapon system would only be used by the United States in wake of a catastrophic situation, successive governments have underlined. READ MORE

The original E-6A manufactured by Boeing’s defense division entered service with the United States Navy in July 1989, replacing the EC-130Q. This platform, now modified to the E-6B standard, conveys instructions from the National Command Authority to fleet ballistic missile submarines (see communication with submarines), a mission known as TACAMO (Take Charge And Move Out).

Prophecy from the Zohar on Messiah’s Arrival

Widely considered the most important work of Jewish Kabbalah, the Zohar is a collection of books written in medieval Aramaic over seven hundred years ago containing mystical commentary on the Pentateuch (five books of Moses, the Torah). In addition to interpreting Scripture, the Vaera section (volume 3, section 34) includes, “The signs heralding Mashiach,” or, “The coming of the Messiah.” The fascinating date for “his” secret presentation to the rabbis in Israel was set in the Zohar for 2012–2013 [given the rejection of Jesus by Orthodox Jews as Messiah, evangelicals would say this seven-hundred-year-old prediction indicates the Antichrist could have arrived circa 2012–2013].

And, sure enough, on the heels of that date some of Israel’s foremost rabbis began behaving as if they know something the rest of the world does not involving the arrival of “Messiah.” In addition to the ones I quoted earlier in this chapter who believe the Messianic era has started, Chaim Kanievsky, one of Israel’s most prominent rabbis and a leader of the Haredi branch of Judaism and a recognized authority on Jewish law, has recently been warning his students not to leave the Holy Land, because, “The Messiah is already here. He will reveal himself very soon…. Don’t travel.”[ii]

These same rabbis starting in 2016 began using “messianic” and “Third Temple” language around the election of Donald Trump.

The Eight-Hundred-Year-Old Prophecy of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel

Will the years immediately following 2016 be prophetically important for Israel and the world? According to an eight-hundred-year-old prophecy, it certainly could. Before he died of cancer, J. R. Church analyzed the ancient predictions of Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel and noted:

Ludwig Schneider, writing for Israel Today (March 2008), said, “Some 800 years ago in Germany, Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel was a top Talmudic scholar with an inclination for the mystical. Before he died in the year 1217, he prophesied that the Ottoman Turks would conquer Jerusalem and rule the Holy City for ‘eight Jubilee Years.’” A biblical Jubilee year consists of 50 years. Fifty multiplied by eight equals 400 years.

Afterwards, according to Ben Samuel, the Ottomans would be driven out of Jerusalem, which would remain a no-man’s land for one Jubilee year. In the tenth Jubilee year [2017]…the Messianic end times would begin.…

Looking back at Ben Samuel’s prediction, we should note that the Ottoman Empire did conquer Jerusalem in 1517, exactly 300 years after the rabbi’s death, and was defeated 400 years later in 1917.

In Israel Today, Ludwig Schneider continues, “This came to pass 300 years after Ben Samuel’s death. He could not have based this prophecy on events that could be foreseen, but only on the results of his study of the Bible.

“According to Leviticus 25, the nation is reunited with its land in the year of Jubilee. Therefore, the Jubilee year plays an important role in Israel’s history. In this case, the Jubilee began with the defeat and conquest of the Mamelukes in Jerusalem by the Ottoman Kingdom in 1517. The Turks reigned over Jerusalem until the British General Edmund Allenby defeated them exactly eight Jubilees later in 1917.

“Ben Samuel’s prophecy was fulfilled precisely because 1517 to 1917 is exactly 400 years. Afterward, Jerusalem was a no-man’s land for 50 years during the time of the British Mandate (1917–1967) and the time of Jordanian rule (1947–1967), another Jubilee year. During the Six Day War in 1967, Israel captured Jerusalem from Jordan and the city returned to the Jewish people after nearly two millennia of exile. After that, the countdown for the Messianic age began.”

Schneider assumes that since Rabbi Judah Ben Samuel’s prediction appears to be fulfilled to date, then 2017 should launch the beginning of the Messianic era.[iii]

Protestant Reformers and What They Believed Would Start In 2016

 

Among the turn-of-the-century Protestant reformers, an astonishing number of theologians believed that the False Prophet and Antichrist would assume places of authority in 2016 and shortly thereafter ascend the world stage. The famous preacher Jonathan Edwards was convinced of this possibility and held a postmillennial view based on the 1,260 days the woman is in the wilderness in Revelation 12:6. He interpreted those days as the years that the true Church was to be oppressed by the papists. Clarence Goen writes of this, “Edwards considered that the most likely time for the…reign of Antichrist was 1260 years after AD 756 (the acceding of temporal power to the Pope),”[iv] which would place the (beginning) of Antichrist’s power squarely in 2016. When we were doing research for the book, Petrus Romanus: The Final Pope Is Here, we learned of this belief by Edwards and sought to verify it by examining a collection of his personal voluminous writings. We found confirmation within a series of his sermons, preached at Northampton, Massachusetts, in 1739, on how history and prophecy coincide.

As we endeavored to demonstrate in Petrus Romanus, the pope’s rise to temporal power began when Pope Stephen began courting Pepin around 751 and then became a reality in 756 with the expulsion of the Lombards. We wrote how 756 placed the target sometime in 2016.

Around that same time during our investigation, we became aware of a sermon collection from the 1800s, titled, “Lectures on the Revelation,” by the Reverend William J. Reid, pastor of First United Presbyterian Church in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which were given over a period ending in March of 1876. Like Jonathan Edwards had over a hundred years earlier, Reid deduced that the False Prophet and Antichrist would arrive sometime around 2016.

Soon we uncovered numerous other ancient examples in which the year 2016 was specifically foreseen as when the False Prophet and the Antichrist would be on earth, followed by the destruction of Rome. These included:

  • The Theological Dictionary of Princeton University (1830)
  • Critical Commentary and Paraphrase on the Old and New Testament by Lowth and Lowman (1822)
  • The American Biblical Repository (1840)
  • Notes on the Revelation of St. John by Lowman (1773)
  • The Christian Spectator, “The Monthly” (1885)
  • Abridgement of Ecclesiastical History (1776)
  • The Works of the Rev. P. Doddridge, DD (1804)
  • The International Sunday School Lessons Pub (1878)
  • Character and Prospects on the Church of Rome in Two Discourses by the Rev. William Mackray (1829)
  • The Panoplist and Missionary Magazine (1809)
  • Lectures on Romanism by Joseph F. Berg (1840)
  • The Congregational Magazine for the Year (1834)
  • The Presbyterian Magazine (1858)

The complete list of ancients who believed 2016 pointed to the year when Antichrist would begin making himself known on the global scene and initiate a process ultimately leading to construction of the Third Temple as well as the Great Tribulation period can be found in the book Zenith 2016.

Whether this will turn out to be connected to Donald Trump and the rabbis’ view of him as a modern Cyrus whose arrival heralds the Messianic era during which the Temple will be built is increasingly convincing, as following entries will hopefully convey.

Behind the Scenes: Players and a Plan

 

Before Trump’s UAE-Israel peace deal began change of the status quo on the Temple Mount, in a fantastically liberal feature by Kerry Bolton for Foreign Policy Journal titled “US Recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s Capital: A Travesty of History,” the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was depicted as an arch-Zionist Jew that, along with Donald Trump and his evangelical advisors, view the USA and Israel as synonymous in terms of policy objectives and prophetic destiny.[v]

Bolton’s increasingly familiar animosity toward evangelicals and their biblical mandate to be a blessing to Israel results in his lament that “the Zionist dream for Palestine is based on three primary aims that are of messianic intent: (1) Greater Israel from the Nile to the Euphrates rivers, (2) Rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon on the site of the present al-Aqsa mosque, (3) Jerusalem not only as the capital of Israel, but as the central seat of universal law.”[vi] He then quotes the Temple Mount Faithful’s website, which confirms:

Consecrating the Temple Mount to the Name of G‑d so that it can become the moral and spiritual center of Israel, of the Jewish people, and of the entire world according to the words of all the Hebrew prophets. It is envisioned that the consecration of the Temple Mount and the Temple itself will focus Israel on:

(a) fulfilling the vision and mission given at Mt. Sinai for Israel to be a chosen people separate unto G‑d, a holy nation, and a nation of priests (Exodus 19:6), and

(b) becoming a light unto all the nations (Isaiah 42:6) so that the Name of G‑d may be revered by all nations and the biblical way of life may be propagated throughout the world.[vii]

Bolton concludes: “Regardless of what any Israeli government states, these are the ultimate objectives which messianic Zionists believe are ordained by their God. They will never be relinquished.” For example, the first prime minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion, a “moderate” and a socialist, asked by Look to describe his vision of the future, alluded to this:

In Jerusalem, the United Nations (a truly United Nations) will build a shrine of the prophets to serve the federated union of all continents; this will be the seat of the Supreme Court of Mankind, to settle all controversies among the federated continents, as prophesied by Isaiah.[viii]

Other secular writers appear similarly suspicious that Trump recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and moving the US embassy there and the more recent “peace deal” extends end-times “messaging” to his conservative Christian base, which has not gone unnoticed by the appropriate members of his audience. Enlisting the well-known craft of “actions in place of words,” the president is viewed as encouraging his compatriots in Armageddon-planning to probe beneath the surface of his exploits where, sotto voce (“under voice”), he is telling them he understands and sympathizes with their eschatological worldview and that, when the time is right, he will offer full-throated voice in support of the Third Temple.

Nancy LeTourneau for the Washington Monthly suspects as much too, writing: “The most obvious gesture he’s made towards Israel since he became president was to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem. That was targeted at his base of support among white evangelicals, and it isn’t because they have so much affection for Jews.” LeTourneau cited what Diana Butler Bass, a theologian, wrote:

For decades, conservative evangelicals have been longing for this recognition. They believe it is necessary in order to regain control of the Temple mount. That is important because rebuilding the Temple is the event that will spark the events of the Book of Revelation and the End Times.… They’ve been waiting for this, praying for this. They want war in the Middle East. The Battle of Armageddon, at which time Jesus Christ will return to the Earth and vanquish all God’s enemies. For certain evangelicals, this is the climax of history. And Trump is taking them there. To the promised judgment, to their sure victory. The righteous will be ushered to heaven; the reprobate will be banished to hellfire.[ix]

Let me take a moment to make issue with LeTourneau and Bass, as I’ve been at the center of mainstream evangelical Christianity for five decades and have been blessed to personally know many leading prophecy scholars and theologians, and have yet to meet a single one who wants “war in the Middle East. The Battle of Armageddon, at which time Jesus Christ will return to the Earth and vanquish all God’s enemies.” We simply believe what Jesus taught, that “when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28). Movement toward the construction of a Third Temple could signal the imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and that is what we “want.” While the objectives listed by the antagonists above do reflect some of the accomplishments many Jews and Christians anticipate, it is not for the reasons they insinuate, as they obviously don’t seem to comprehend the “blessed hope” Christians have for the Second Coming of Jesus, which a Third Temple could signal, or that which Jews have for their final redemption and Messianic era.

Having said that, any successful attempt at garnering support for a reconstructed Temple in Jerusalem will indeed require enough multicultural and international support. Thus, prejudices by Bolton and the other writers quoted above aside, their feelings about behind-the-scenes discussions and deals that could witness the materialization of a Third Temple is warranted, and, in this writers’ opinion, they certainly should be suspicious that a plan is under consideration wherein international players are quietly moving chess pieces clandestinely toward a sooner-than-later realization of a rebuilt Temple.

Separate mass gatherings led by Franklin Graham, Jonathan Cahn converge

National Mall the site this Saturday of ‘Prayer March’ and ‘solemn assembly’

By Art Moore
Published September 23, 2020 at 7:

Two separate mass gatherings calling for prayer for the nation will take place Saturday on the National Mall in Washington.

The “Washington Prayer March 2020,” will be led by evangelist Franklin Graham, and “The Return — National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance,” by Jonathan Cahn, the Messianic rabbi known for his New York Times bestsellers, including “The Harbinger.”

Graham and Cahn both say God led them separately to call for the mass assemblies, CBN News reported.

“God is converging everything. That’s how important this day is,” Cahn told CBN.

“The Return” will take place from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Time between the Washington Monument and the Capitol building. At noon Eastern, the prayer march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial, stopping for focused prayer at sites on the National Mall.

In addition, as WND reported, Focus on the Family is holding a virtual pro-life event called “See Life 2020” at 8 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday night that can be viewed here.

In an interview last week with WND, Cahn pointed to another crucial time in America, during the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln declared a solemn assembly “and it changed the course of history.”

“We are at a more dangerous point than ever. We have an election that can change the course of the nation at such a time when so many signs are pointing to danger of judgment,” he told WND.

“I believe that if we do not rise to this now, here, embodied by the return, we may pass the point of no return. That’s why I’m calling on any believer who has any kind of burden for America to join, whether they come to Washington or wherever they are.

“But we need to do this as never before.”

In a promotion for the march, Graham said the country “is in trouble” and the “only hope for America is God.”

“We’re coming to pray. And I’m just asking people to join me,” he said.

“Let’s fill this city with people who are willing to pray for this country, to pray for the president, to pray for all of our leaders, Democrat and Republican.”

Greater shakings’: Jonathan Cahn foresaw 2020 trouble, warns of even more

By Art Moore
Published September 20, 2020 at 11:59am

The fact that 2020 has become a year of historic “shaking” was not a surprise to Jonathan Cahn, the Messianic Jewish rabbi and author of many New York Times bestsellers, including “The Harbinger” and a sequel published this month, “Harbinger II: The Return.”

When he and his colleagues set the date for the massive gathering on the National Mall in Washington this Saturday – “The Return — National and Global Day of Prayer and Repentance” – they certainly had the crucial Nov. 3 election in mind, 40 days hence.

But he said in an interview with WND he has long had “a real strong sense that it was going to be all the more strategic.” In “The Harbinger,” Cahn showed how the signs of judgment and warning in the last days of ancient Israel are strikingly similar to signs in America today, particularly surrounding the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

“The pattern and the template of the harbinger is that there is first a shaking, a warning, in the form of an attack – that was 9/11 – then there is a window of time for the nation to come back,” he said.

“Then the window comes to an end and there are shakings.” Remarkably, the shakings that the prophet Jeremiah foretold for Israel – the window of time for repentance – came 19 years after the judgment.

“So for years I was wondering, would this be the year the shakings would come?” Cahn told WND. “And it has been certainly that.” Further, he pointed out, one of the shakings Jeremiah prophesies in the 19th year is a plague.

If the coronavirus, violent racial unrest, hurricanes and wildfires aren’t enough, there likely will be more, he said in the interview, which took place just before the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday.”I don’t believe the shakings are over. I don’t think we’ve seen the last of it. I believe there will be greater shakings,” Cahn said.

Window of time

When Cahn announced in a video message in March the plan for “The Return,” he said he believed America has been given the “window of time” for the purpose of “return and revival.”

“Without that return, America will be lost,” he said at the time. “In the days following 9/11, people flocked to houses of worship, and it looked as if there could have been a spiritual revival and awakening. But it never came because there was no repentance. And without repentance, without a turning back, there can be no revival.” But Cahn has seen in his lifetime “the hand of God change the course of American and world history.”

The return begins, he emphasized, “not in the halls of government but with the people of God who gathered in a sacred assembly in our nation’s capital with Scripture: ‘If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their sinful ways, I will hear from heaven, I will forgive their sin, and I will heal their land.'”

“The Return” events this weekend will take place during the 10 days that are known from ancient times as the Days of Awe, beginning last Friday with the Jewish Feast of Trumpets and ending with the Day of Atonement on Sept. 28. “The Return” also corresponds with the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. Many who can’t make it to Washington for the assembly on the National Mall will gather across the nation in houses of worship and in homes to participate via a livestream.

Among the speakers are Ben Carson, James Dobson, Pat Robertson, Ann Graham Lotz, Alveda King, Pat Boone, retired Lt. Gen. William Boykin and former Rep. Michele Bachmann. Cahn will give a “prophetic word” at 11 a.m. Eastern on Saturday that he said will be “a call for America to return, a revealing of where America is, the biblical templets we’re replaying and where it leads.” “We’re at a very dangerous point,” he told WND. “The voice of God calling to us.”

The main event on the Mall, between the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capitol, is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time on Saturday. An evening celebration will take place from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. On Friday night is a youth gathering from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

Along with the livestream on the web, “The Return” will be broadcast on many television networks, including CBN, TBN, PTL, TCT, God TV and Daystar. And there will be simulcast partners around the world broadcasting in nearly 90 languages, according to the co-chairman of the event, Kevin Jessip. “This will be the largest ever global gathering in the history of Christendom utilizing today’s technologies,” said Jessip, founder of the Global Strategic Alliance.

Cahn leads the Jerusalem Center/Beth Israel congregation just outside New York City, in Wayne, New Jersey. He has spoken at the United Nations, before leaders of Congress and at the Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in 2013 and 2017.

Solemn assembly

Yet another remarkable providence in the timing of the event Saturday, Cahn said, is the convergence with a dream recounted recently by Dana Coverstone, the Kentucky pastor whose video in June telling of dreams he said foretold of the coronavirus and racial unrest went viral.

Coverstone said he saw, in a more recent dream this summer, a calendar in which September was highlighted as a month in which there would be a growing movement of prayer for the nation and for revival amid increasing resistance. The pastor saw a finger emphasize the last week of September, when there would be a “solemn assembly.”

“That’s exactly what the return is, a solemn assembly,” Cahn said. Cahn told WND that he had spoken recently with Coverstone, and the Kentucky pastor didn’t know about The Return event when he had the dream. People told him about it later. Cahn also later discovered that The Return “happens” to fall on a specially appointed day in the Hebrew calendar called Shabbat Shuvah. He didn’t know that when the event was scheduled.

Shuvah means “return,” and the day is specifically appointed as the return of a nation to God. Scriptures for that day include a passage from Joel 2, which says, “Sound the shofar, proclaim a solemn assembly and plead with him for the nation and the Lord will hear our prayer.”

“All over the world on that Saturday, the scrolls will be opened in synagogues and there will be a reading from Joel about the solemn assembly,” Cahn said. That day on the Hebrew calendar is set apart as a time of prayer and getting right before the Lord, he noted.

Cahn pointed to another crucial time in America, during the Civil War, when Abraham Lincoln declared a solemn assembly “and it changed the course of history.” “We are at a more dangerous point than ever. We have an election that can change the course of the nation at such a time when so many signs are pointing to danger of judgment,” he told WND.

“I believe that if we do not rise to this now, here, embodied by the return, we may pass the point of no return. That’s why I’m calling on any believer who has any kind of burden for America to join, whether they come to Washington or wherever they are. “But we need to do this as never before.”

‘Has the country completely lost its moral center?’

By WND News Services
Published September 13, 2020 at 1:37pm

By Frank Miele, Real Clear Politics

It was 25 years ago when the average people of a small city in Montana “joined together to stand up to hate when their neighbors were under attack,” as the Not in Our Town website reminds us.

The town was Billings. The neighbors were Jewish, Black and Native American. The attackers were white supremacists. The average people standing up to hate were, for the most part, white people who, like most people of all colors, were offended by racism and anti-Semitism.

That was then. This is now. The city is Kenosha … or Portland … or Seattle. The neighbors under attack are police officers or business people or any white people. The attackers are Black Lives Matter activists or antifa. The average people standing up to hate are — for the most part — missing in action.

What the hell happened to America in the last 25 years?

You will find one clue in this description of what happened in Billings:

“Townspeople of all races and religions found common ground against hate based attacks against their African American, Native American and Jewish families and congregations.  Religious and community leaders, labor union volunteers, law enforcement, the local newspaper and concerned residents united in action and spoke loudly against hate and intolerance, proclaiming in no uncertain terms ‘Not In Our Town!’”

In Billings, in 1995, residents found “common ground.” They joined together to stop hate. There was no talk about Republicans and Democrats. There was no talk about how all white people were the cause of evil just because some white people had done evil things. And there was a joining together of people from across many diverse backgrounds. “Religious and community leaders, labor union volunteers, law enforcement, the local newspaper and concerned residents united in action.”

That doesn’t happen anymore. American law enforcement is now caricatured as the Gestapo or as brainless, heartless automatons marching in lockstep to the commands of “systemic racism.” Different communities and different religions are taught not to look for common ground, but to instead wall themselves off from each other in celebration of their own grievances. Yes, celebration. Identity politics has turned Americans into us and them, and we are taught to celebrate “us” and fear “them.”

How the hell can Americans sit back and watch as gangs of dangerous extremists maraud through our cities — burning buildings, throwing rocks, bottles and explosives at police, and attacking the elderly? Why make excuses for the bullies or justify their violence? Looting is wrong. Vandalism is wrong. Lawlessness is wrong. Yet too many people will not say so. Has the country completely lost its moral center in the last 25 years?

If one is being honest, the answer must be yes. Whether it is because of the increasingly self-oriented perspective engendered by social media or because of some intangible such as the deadening of the moral nerve caused by the widespread acceptance of murder by abortion, we may never know. But there is no doubt that a culture that condones violence and lawlessness has lost its way.

Civil rights activist Bob Woodson, whose life’s work has been revitalizing low-income neighborhoods, says that the revolution in our city streets will only make life worse for Blacks and other minorities, and that the rest of America has inexplicably turned its back on its most vulnerable.

“We’re reaching really a level of depravity — when rioters in Portland are locking people in buildings and trying to burn it down and also people are cheering when a Trump supporter is shot to death — I’ve never seen that level of depravity before in this country,” Woodson said last week.

Of course, that level of depravity has been seen before elsewhere — during the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution, the rise of Nazism in Germany. Americans today run the risk of becoming the “good Germans” of 90 years ago who looked the other way when extremists used brute force to acquire power, when human life became less important than one’s own personal safety, and when civilization gave way to barbarity.

So my question is simple: When will Americans get up from their easy chairs and stand with the people who are victims of left-wing mobs — bullied, intimidated, harassed, even murdered?

Not in our town? How about this one: Not in our country!
