The Gaza-based Islamic Jihad terror group proudly paraded its newest weapons in its family friendly “Bond of Blood” festival on Thursday, Palestinian news website Donia al-Watan reported.

The military arm of Islamic Jihad, known as the Al-Quds Brigades, unveiled a new long-range rocket at the event in a purported show of force against Israel. The group didn’t disclose any details on the exact capabilities and range of its newest advanced weaponry.

According to the report, the “the upgraded weapons show that the Al-Quds Brigades are ready to repel any Israeli aggression on the Gaza Strip.”

In pictures of the festival which honors terrorists who died while carrying out attacks against the Jewish state and those wounded while waging jihad – small children are seen dressed up like terrorists, carrying guns and other weapons.

During 2014s Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip, terror groups successfully launched Syrian-made long-range M-302 rockets as far north as Haifa, targeting major population centers in Israel for the first time.

The M-302 which is capable of reaching targets up to 150 kilometers away is the same type of missile confiscated by Israel when its navy intercepted the KLOS-C vessel in 2014. According to Israeli officials, the weapons were part of a smuggled arms shipment from Iran to Gaza via Sudan.

Beyond the threat faced by Israel of rocket attacks from Gaza, officials have also expressed concern over the hidden arsenal of Lebanon-based Hezbollah, totaling some 120,000 projectiles.

As reported by The Algemeiner, earlier in July, Israels Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon warned that Hezbollah has amassed a larger arsenal of hidden rockets and missiles than all European NATO allies combined.

Locust From The Book Of Revelation? Bizarre Winged Creature Stirs Controversy

By Michael Snyder – End of The America Dream Blog July 29, 2016

I wasn’t going to write about this.  I was trained as an attorney and I am skeptical by nature, and so I generally don’t like to write about things that I can’t prove.  But in the case of this bizarre winged creature, a couple of factors changed my mind.

 First of all, we actually have physical evidence which has been scientifically tested.  When it comes to things like this, people are always crying out for some real physical evidence, and now we have some.

 Of course the existence of evidence does not mean that we can necessarily find answers to all of our questions, but at least we have something to work with.  Secondly, a highly respected researcher named L.A. Marzulli has spent a great deal of time extensively investigating this case.

 I have personally interacted with L.A. Marzulli, and I have followed his work for years, and so I know how credible he is.

 Earlier today, I visited L.A. Marzulli’s blog, and I was astounded by what I saw.  There in living color was a bizarre winged creature that doesn’t bear any resemblance to any animal that science currently knows about.

 L.A. Marzulli did not personally discover this creature.  Rather, it was originally discovered on the side of a highway by a 13-year-old Mexican boy who didn’t know what it was.  He ultimately turned it over to a well known Mexican investigative journalist named Jaime Maussan.

 Since that time this creature has been x-rayed, and the x-rays enabled researchers to see that the creature possessed a full skeletal structure.  The x-rays even showed that the creature’s left leg had been broken at one point.  In addition, DNA testing was done, and the DNA did not match any known animal.

 This amazing discovery is featured in L.A.’s new documentary entitled “Watchers 10”, and a 9 minute clip featuring analysis of this creature has been posted to YouTube right here…

 

 So the big question that we need to ask is this… What in the world is that thing?

 At this point, there appear to be three main theories.

 Many people are calling this winged creature a fairy.  These days a lot of people out there believe in “fairies”, and YouTube is loaded with footage that people have supposedly captured of “fairies” flying around outside at high speed.  Videos are very easily doctored, and the hard evidence that these “fairies” exist has always seemed to be lacking.

 And this winged creature doesn’t appear to fit the bill anyway.  This winged creature is certainly small, and it certainly does have wings, but it doesn’t really fit the description of what you might expect a “fairy” to look like.  Instead, it looks quite gruesome and evil.  It has pointy ears like a gargoyle, and the body of the creature looks to me like it resembles an insect more than a person.

 Secondly, some people are calling this winged creature an “alien”.  But of course that label is almost instantly applied to any strange creature that pops up these days.

 The most common form of “alien” that people encounter are known as “the greys”, but there is only a slight resemblance between this creature and “the greys”.  From what people have reported, “greys” don’t have long pointy ears, they don’t have wings, and they don’t have tails.

 Of course it is always possible that this creature could be another type of “alien” or demonic entity.  But I don’t know we could conclusively prove that.

 Thirdly, L.A. Marzulli and others have pointed out that this winged creature that was discovered in Mexico does seem to have some similarities to the “locusts” that are described in Revelation chapter 9.  The following is what Revelation 9:7-11 says in the Modern English Version…

 7 The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were something like crowns of gold, and their faces were like faces of men. 8 They had hair like the hair of women, and their teeth were like the teeth of lions. 9 They had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running to battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions and stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men for five months. 11 They had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek his name is Apollyon.

 Does this creature have a face like a man?

 I think that you could say that.

 I don’t see any hair, but it is always possible that it could have had hair at one time.  I do see some frightening looking teeth, and it definitely has very prominent wings.

 The detail that is most intriguing though is the stinger at the end of the tail.  On Marzulli’s website, you can see a closeup of the tail and the stinger.  Obviously the stinger has a function, and at this point we can only speculate because we don’t know enough about the creature.

 Ultimately, there is always the possibility that this could be some sort of an elaborate hoax, but the scientific examinations that have been done so far have cast doubt on that explanation.  But I am certainly not willing to totally rule that out at this point either.

 In the end, I don’t know what that creature is.

 I was highly intrigued when I saw it, and after thinking about it I decided to share this bit of news with all of you.

 ]I would encourage you to look into this for yourself and come to your own conclusions.

 If we are indeed living in the last days as described in the Bible, then our world is going to get very, very weird in the years ahead.

 The Book of Revelation describes all sorts of bizarre creatures and strange events, and the more I read it the more I am convinced that the period just before Jesus comes back is going to look a whole lot more like an extremely wild science fiction movie than most people would dare to imagine.

 So yes, a strange winged creature that looks like something from another world may be hard to swallow, but this might just be the tip of the iceberg.

 By the time it is all said and done, we could very well see things in the years ahead that will completely blow all of our minds.

Bye Bye Middle Class: Homeownership Hits Lowest Level Ever

homeownerjuly292016

By Michael Snyder – End of The America Dream Blog July 29, 2016

Share this article:

The percentage of Americans that own a home has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded.  During the second quarter of 2016, the non-seasonally adjusted homeownership rate fell to just 62.9 percent, which was exactly where it was at when the U.S. Census began publishing this measurement back in 1965.

This is not what a “recovery” looks like.  All throughout the Obama years, the percentage of Americans that own a home has gotten smaller and smaller and smaller.

The reason for this, of course, is that the middle class in America is dying.  Last year, we learned that middle class Americans now make up a minority of the population for the first time ever.

In order to have a high rate of homeownership, you need a thriving middle class, and you can’t have a thriving middle class without good paying middle class jobs.

This is why I write about the evisceration of the middle class so extensively, because the U.S. economy is systematically being hollowed out and most Americans don’t understand what is happening.

Traditionally, owning a home has been a sign that you have arrived as a member of the middle class, but under Barack Obama the percentage of Americans that own a home has fallen every single year.

In the past, we have talked about how it had fallen to the lowest level in decades, but now it has officially fallen to the lowest level ever.  The following comes from CNBC…

After rising just over a decade ago to its highest level ever, the nation’s homeownership rate fell to match its all-time low and could drop even further in the months to come.

In the second quarter of this year, the rate fell to 62.9 percent, not seasonally adjusted, which is the same as it was in 1965, when the U.S. Census started tracking the metric.

During the epic housing boom in the mid-2000s, the rate soared as high as 69.2 percent. That was when politicians touted the so-called “ownership society.”

So why is this happening?

Well, according to Wolf Richter analysts are blaming many factors…

– Rising home prices in an economy of stagnant wages (for the lower 80%) have pushed entry-level homes out of reach for many people.

– Lower priced homes in many urban areas entail a huge and costly ($ and time) commute every day. And even then, these homes may be too much of stretch for big parts of the population in expensive urban areas.

– First time buyers are having trouble saving for a down payment since they spend their last available dime to meet soaring rents.

– Millennials have been blamed. They always get blamed for everything. They saw their parents deal with the American Dream as it turned into the American Nightmare, and they learned their lesson early in life.

– The super-low interest rate environment hasn’t made homes more affordable because home prices, in response to super-low interest rates, have soared, and in the end, mortgage payments are higher than they were before.

– Higher home prices entail other costs that are higher, including taxes, brokerage fees, and insurance.

Certainly all of those points are legitimate, but the truth is that what we are facing is much broader than all of that.

The middle class in the United States has been dying for decades, and in recent years the long-term trends that have been slowly eating away at the middle class like cancer have accelerated significantly.  Just consider these numbers…

-In America today, nobody has a job in one out of every five families.

-At this moment, 102 million working age Americans do not have a job.

-According to the Social Security Administration, 51 percent of American workers currently make less than $30,000 a year.

-In 1970, the middle class brought home approximately 62 percent of all income. Today, that number has plunged to just 43 percent.

-The Federal Reserve says that 47 percent of Americans could not pay an unexpected $400 emergency room bill without borrowing the money from somewhere or selling something.

-One recent survey discovered that 62 percent of all Americans have less than $1,000 in savings.

-If you currently have no debt and you also have ten dollars in your pocket, that gives you a greater net worth than about 25 percent of all Americans.

-According to Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Shaefer, the authors of a book entitled “$2.00 a Day: Living on Almost Nothing in America”, there are 1.5 million “ultrapoor” households in the United States that live on less than two dollars a day.  If you can believe it, that number has doubled since 1996.

-Back in 2007, approximately one out of every eight children in America was on food stamps. Today, that number is one out of every five.

-Things continue to get worse for the middle class as we head into the second half of 2016.  Gallup’s U.S. economic confidence index just hit the lowest level so far this year.

I could keep quoting numbers at you all day, but hopefully you are getting the picture.

The middle class in America just keeps getting smaller and smaller and smaller, and our politicians just keep on conducting business as usual.  They don’t seem to care that they are strangling the life out of what was once the largest and most thriving middle class in the history of the planet.

And things could soon get much worse for the middle class as this new global economic crisis accelerates.  In fact, highly respected economist Peter Schiff believes that a major downturn in the U.S. is imminent…

HERE IS THE REALITY: The world has caught on, and the gig is up. Under Obama’s stewardship, the U.S. national debt has gone from $10 Trillion, to what will be $20 Trillion by the time he leaves office, with nothing more than 100 MILLION Americans out of work, and 50 MILLION in poverty and on food stamps.

That’s what cheap money bought for us. It was all “borrowed” cheap money too, making it infinitely worse, and the world is tired of lending.

There are so many families out there that are really struggling right now, and more than two-thirds of all Americans believe that the country is on the wrong track.

I would like to tell you that happy days are here again and that the best times for America are just around the corner, but unlike the politicians at the Republican and Democratic national conventions, I am not going to lie to you.

Very rough times are coming, and things are going to get much harder for the middle class.

Plan accordingly, and get prepared while you still can.

IS MARTIAL LAW COMING TO AMERICA?

martialjuly192016

 BY TOM OLAGO JULY 19, 2016

Share this article:

America is on edge. Racial tensions are rising and terrorism fears abound. Many fear we may be one trigger event away from pushing America into a state of Martial Law.

It’s a horrifying boiling-point scenario that no one of goodwill would want, irrespective of race or creed. However some observers and pundits are convinced that there are some very powerful people with influence in America and beyond who would like to see just such an outcome – simply because it would protect either their selfish personal interests or serve a wider and more sinister national or global agenda.

One person suspected by some to fall into this category is none other than President Obama. In a recent article for Breitbart.com, Neil Munro alleged that President Obama is harnessing the increasing attacks on police — and the periodic shootings of people by stressed cops — to push his agenda to federalize state and local police forces.

“I want to start moving on constructive actions that are actually going to make a difference,” Obama said during his evening press conference in Poland when asked about the Dallas attack.

Those actions, he said, would be based on the recommendations of the panel that he picked after the 2014 street riots in Ferguson, Missouri. The panel offered “practical concrete solutions that can reduce – if not eliminate – the problems of racial bias,” Obama said.

The panel’s report urges the federal government to federalize police training and practices, via the use of federal lawsuits, grants and threats to cut federal aid.

So far, Obama’s deputies have reportedly cajoled and sued more than 30 police jurisdictions to adopt federal rules in a slow-motion creation of a national police system, similar to the slow-motion creation of a federal-run health-sector via Obamacare.

Munro maintained that Obama also used the press conference to insulate his federalized police program – and his allies in the Black Live Matter movement — from popular rejection after the five police were murdered by the anti-cop African-American in Dallas.

“The danger is that we somehow think the act of a troubled person speaks to some larger political statement across the country – it doesn’t,” Obama insisted.

“As painful as this week has been, I firmly believe that America is not as divided as some have suggested. Americans of all races and all backgrounds are rightly outraged by the inexcusable attacks on police … that include protestors, it includes family members who have grave concerns about police conduct, and they’ve said that this is unacceptable, there is no division there,” Obama added.

Could he be right, or is he simply in denial? Perhaps the worst possibility is that there is indeed a deliberately contrived and systematic process geared towards provoking chaos and disorder in the United States, and even beyond.

Just the make-believe stuff that conspiracy theorists warm up to for some attention- so nothing to lose sleep over, some might conclude. But there are some worrying signs that point to the possibility not being far-fetched or unrealistic.

About three months back, Michael Snyder posed the question in his ‘End Of The American Dream’ blog: “Are We Being Psychologically Conditioned To Accept Martial Law In America?” Snyder observed the following trends worthy of note, and asks the reader to consider if it could all be accidental or coincidental rather than orchestrated and manipulated:

” Americans starting to be bombarded  images of troops in the streets

” The term “martial law” coming up a lot in movies, news broadcasts and even in television commercials.

” In recent years, it seems like the solution to almost every major crisis involves bringing in troops, such as in Ferguson in 2014 – protesters were whipped up into a frenzy, when the riots began the police were ordered to stand down and not intervene, and finally National Guard troops were brought in as the “solution” to a crisis that had escalated wildly out of control.

” Snyder states that this is the exact same pattern that was witnessed during the Baltimore riots in April 2014 and charges that National Guard troops all over the nation have been training for this exact type of scenario.

” These days the threat of civil unrest is causing an increasing number of Americans to embrace the idea of troops patrolling our city streets.

” National Guard troops all over the nation have reported to be engaged in something called “civil unrest training” that includes gas mask training and practice with shields and batons.

Snyder stated that there are so many instances in which “training” seems to eerily correspond with actual events.  That is one of the reasons why so many people are concerned about Jade Helm and all of the other very elaborate military exercises that were being held around the country in 2015.

The operation causing rampant suspicions was a new kind of exercise involving elite teams such as the SEALs and Green Berets from four military branches training over several states from mid-July to mid-September 2015.

It was planned that about 1,200 special operations personnel would be involved and move covertly among the public. Military equipment would be used to travel between seven Southwestern states from Texas to California.

So what exactly would the ‘powers that be’ stand to gain from triggering race riots and calling in the National Guard? Opinions abound. Some believe that there is a covert plot to extend Obama’s presidency term over the mandatory two-term limit, and a sustained national crisis triggered before the November election would provide the perfect excuse for that.

Yet others see a New World Order plan to trigger a financial crash to usher in a one world government and currency, starting with the United States and the death of the dollar.

This would trigger chaos and anarchy as cash becomes useless and crime spirals out of control as desperate citizens demand food, water, and other essentials. Enter the National Guard – fully prepared by Jade Helm and perhaps other secretive preparations.

Some believe that some natural disaster such as a meteorite or other space debris hurtling towards the earth unstoppably – or some major solar flare – is soon going to create unbearable conditions that will require massive crowd and security controls.

The speculation is endless but whatever the case, tense race relations may have nothing to do with it at all – just a useful trigger; the means to justify a desired end.

If any such plans are actually in the works, there are some dark and dangerous days ahead for America. Martial law could soon make ‘the land of the brave, the home of the free’ one giant prison and a hell on earth – indefinitely.

AN ACCOUNT OF TWO ARKS OF PRESERVATION

…Every Inclination Of The Thoughts Of His Heart Was Only Evil Continually.

 The title of this presentation describes the condition of mankind in the time of Noah.

If we think it was very bad then, we can see that we fare no better now than during the time of Noah.

(Gen 6:4-8)  The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of Elohim came in to the daughters of men and they bore children to them. Those were the mighty men who were of old, the men of name.

And יהוה saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And יהוה was sorry that He had made man on the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.

And יהוה said, “I am going to wipe off man whom I have created from the face of the earth, both man and beast, creeping creature and birds of the heavens, for I am sorry that I have made them.”

But Noaḥ found favour in the eyes of יהוה.

True to form and in support of His later declared statement to Mosheh quoted below:

Exo_33:19(b) …And I shall favour him whom I favour, and shall have compassion on him whom I have compassion.”

Why did Elohim who favoured only Noah, preserved his other family members as well? This truth is revealed at the apostolic period as per the following verse: Act_16:31  And they said, “Believe on the Master יהושע Messiah, and you shall be saved, you and your household.”  Remember, יהוה  and Master יהושע Messiah is one and the same.

Now a question arises as to what happened to other  members of the world who knew YAHWEH? We believe that our YAHWEH is a just and loving Elohim. For He openly declared the following heart’s desire: (Joh 3:16)  “For Elohim so loved the world that He gave His only brought-forth Son, so that everyone who believes in Him should not perish but possess everlasting life.”

The fate of the other “non-participating to evil deeds” members of the ancient world who knew YAHWEH can be found in the book of Yasher chapter 5 verse 21 “And all the sons of men who knew YAHWEH, died in that year before YAHWEH brought evil upon them; for YAHWEH willed them to die, so as not to behold the evil that YAHWEH would bring upon their brothers and relatives, as he had so declared to do.”

Throughout the history of mankind, YAHWEH Adonai commanded only the making of two arks with specific dimension and materials. Both arks were used to contain and preserve and save subject placed within those arks.

The first one was made during the time of Noah. It was constructed for Noah’s family of eight; Noah and his wife and three sons with their wives. The following verses of scripture describe YAHWEH intention.

(Gen 6:11-22)  “And the earth was corrupt before Elohim, and the earth was filled with violence.And Elohim looked upon the earth and saw that it was corrupt – for all flesh had corrupted their way on the earth – and Elohim said to Noaḥ, “The end of all flesh has come before Me, for the earth is filled with violence through them. And see, I am going to destroy them from the earth. “Make yourself an ark of gopherwood. Make rooms in the ark, and cover it inside and outside with tar. “And this is how you are to make it: The length of the ark is three hundred cubits, its width fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits.  “Make a window for the ark, and complete it to a cubit from above. And set the door of the ark in its side. Make it with lower, second, and third decks.  “And see, I Myself am bringing floodwaters on the earth, to destroy all flesh in which is the breath of life from under the heavens – all that is on the earth is to die.  “And I shall establish My covenant with you, and you shall come into the ark, you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you. “And of all the living creatures of all flesh, two of each, you are to bring into the ark, to keep them alive with you – a male and a female.  “Of the birds after their kind, and of the cattle after their kind, and of all creeping creatures of the earth after their kind, two of each are to come to you, to keep them alive.  “As for you, take of all food that is eaten and gather it to yourself. And it shall be food for you and for them.”  And Noaḥ did according to all that Elohim commanded him, so he did.”

Ark Noah

It is not too difficult to see that YAHWEH Adonai planned to repopulate the earth again: this time from the seeds of Noah and choice living creatures which YAHWEH Himself commanded to enter into the ark.

(Gen 9:18,19)  And the sons of Noaḥ who went out of the ark were Shĕm and Ḥam and Yepheth. And Ḥam was the father of Kenaʽan. These three were the sons of Noaḥ, and all the earth was overspread from them. Since every account in the bible represents the truth: [( Joh 17:17b)  “ Your Word is truth.” ] the relic of Noah’s ark had been found on mount Ararat in Turkey.

Real Noah’s ark found

Followed sometime later by Chinese  team which  entered  the ark

However, following the destruction of all living creatures in the time of Noah, the generations of the sons of Noah fell into disgrace again.

(Gen 11:4-8)  And they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, and a tower whose top is in the heavens, and make a name for ourselves, lest we be scattered over all the face of the earth.” Then יהוה came down to see the city and the tower which the sons of men had built. And יהוה said, “Look, they are one people and they all have one language, and this is what they begin to do! And now, they are not going to be withheld from doing whatever they plan to do.“Come, let Us go there and confuse their language, so that they do not understand one another’s speech.” And יהוה scattered them from there, over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.

What they were afraid of came upon them exactly: Job 3:25 For that which I greatly feared has come upon me, and that which I dreaded has overtaken me.

What Is The Condition Of The World In The Present Age?

Master Yashua ha Massiach said:

(Mat 24:37-39)  “And as the days of Noaḥ, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam be. “For as they were in the days before the flood, eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noaḥ entered into the ark, and they did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also shall the coming of the Son of Aḏam

Current events point to the soon coming of Yeshua ha Massiach who identified Himself as Son of Adam. In Matthew 24:37, He indicated that His Second coming will take place when the world will deteriorate to a state “as the days of Noah.”

Are we there yet? Let us taste a little sample of what is going on in our world today:

Knowing that our present world has deteriorated to a condition known “as the days of Noah”, and in Noah’s Days, YAHWEH Adonai commanded Noah to build an ark with specific dimension and substance, He nonetheless had commanded Mosheh to build an ark as well to accommodate the very Commandment, written by His own finger by which the human race may know His loving kindness and favour to the sinful world through faith.

(Exo 25:10 -16)  “And they shall make an ark of acacia wood two and a half cubits long, a cubit and a half wide, and a cubit and a half high.   “And you shall overlay it with clean gold, inside and outside you shall overlay it. And you shall make on it a moulding of gold all around.  “And you shall cast four rings of gold for it, and put them in its four corners, two rings on one side, and two rings on the other side. “And you shall make poles of acacia wood, and overlay them with gold,  and shall put the poles into the rings on the sides of the ark, to lift up the ark by them.  “The poles are in the rings of the ark, they are not taken from it.   “And into the ark you shall put the Witness which I give you.”

Covenant The Witness is the two tablets of Ten Commandment written by the finger which YAHWEH Elohim gave to Mosheh.

Now read the following instruction carefully; especially those who try to keep the Torah of Mosheh:

(Deu 31:26-27)  “Take this Book of the Torah, and you shall place it beside the ark of the covenant of יהוה your Elohim, and it shall be there as a witness against you, for I myself know your rebellion and your stiff neck. See, while I am still alive with you today, you have been rebellious against יהוה, then how much more after my death?

Two other verses of scripture attest to the only content of the Ark of Covenant:

1Ki_8:9  There was naught in the ark, only the two tablets of stone which Mosheh put there at Ḥorĕḇ, where יהוה made a covenant with the children of Yisra’ĕl, when they came out of the land of Mitsrayim.

2Ch_5:10  There was naught in the ark but the two tablets which Mosheh put there at Ḥorĕḇ, when יהוה made a covenant with the children of Yisra’ĕl, when they came out of Mitsrayim.

The placement of the Book of Torah (Mosheh) beside the Ark, I see that as temporary and directed specifically for the Israelis. The following verse proofs my contention:

(Rom 10:4)  For Messiah is the goal1 of the ‘Torah unto righteousness’to everyone who believes. Footnote: 1Or end purpose; not termination. (ISR)

(Rom 10:4)  For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth. (KJV)

If you value your life for here and the hereafter, you need to repent and confess the following verses of scripture:

(Rom 10:9-13)  That if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.   For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved.  Because the Scripture says, “Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.”   Because there is no distinction between Yehuḏite and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him.   For “everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be saved.”

THE VERY REAL THREAT OF AN EMP ATTACK

empapril142016

 BY PNW STAFF    JULY 12, 2016

Share this article:

Since the official end of the Cold War, the United States has been the world’s sole superpower, leading the world in wealth creation, technology and military might that, at times, seems unassailable.

The technological advantage the United States possesses is felt by its enemies on the battlefield and it is the connected nature of modern life through digitally controlled electrical grids and Internet-based communications networks that allows such incredible progress.

But few realize how vulnerable the country truly is to an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that could bring all of this crashing down.

While frightening, it is truly hard to imagine that a simple EM pulse, even one that kills no one in the initial blast, could be far more deadly than a conventional nuclear strike.

Rapid economic collapse, failed transportation systems, mass starvation and the failure of every electronic device within a thousand-mile radius would signal the end of the American era.

Unfortunately, Iran, Russia, China and North Korea are well aware of the destruction an EMP weapon would cause and there is now evidence that each has either an EMP weapon or has drawn up strategic plans to use such a weapon.

The death toll from a major EMP attack over the United States has been estimated as low as 50% and as high as 90% of the population, according to the Washington-based think tank, The Center for Security Policy.

Arizona Representative Trent Franks recently released to the public information on Iranian war doctrine which contains an operation called “Passive Defense” which is anything but passive.

Iranian military planners propose to counter the military might of the US using nuclear EMP weapons, conventional sabotage and cyber-warfare to attack vulnerable electrical infrastructure.

Representative Franks has introduced a bill that would harden the electrical grid to protect the US against what he calls “the most dangerous short-term national security threat we face.” Officially, Iranian religious clerics have declared that the use of nuclear weapons against civilian populations is forbidden according to Islam.

Whether anyone believes such self-serving statements, it is interesting to note that these same religious leaders have made a special exception to their fatwa that allows the use of nuclear EMP weapons, since death would come due to starvation rather than directly from the nuclear blast itself.

According to the Washington Times, Iran has already practiced launching EMP capable missiles off freighters and hitting altitudes ideal for maximum EMP effect.

Whereas Iran may not have the EMP capable warheads they need yet, they are far from the only rogue nation developing EMP weapons to counter the United States.

Russia and China both possess nuclear arsenals easily capable of setting the United States back into the dark ages, but so far the threat of retaliation has kept each in check.

A resurgent Russia that continues to encroach on Europe after its invasions of Georgia and Ukraine would stand to gain from such a strike if it could avoid the massive US counter-punch.

South Korea’s intelligence agency claims that Kim Jong-Un’s brutal regime has recently purchased EMP weapons from Russia and is now in the process of adapting these for use against South Korea and the US.

With a country already on the brink of collapse, how long will it be until Kim decides he has nothing more to lose?

Electromagnetic pulses are categorized as E1, E2 and E3. Solar flares, for which the Earth is overdue, cause E3 pulses which can cripple unshielded electrical grids for years.

The E1 pulse from a nuclear detonation (NEMP) at an altitude of 200 miles and with an effective radius of around 1,000 miles results from gamma rays ionizing the mid-stratosphere.

This causes a cascading resonance with the Earth’s own magnetic field that induces a massive voltage surge in electrical circuits on the surface.

Generally, the longer the circuit, the more powerful the voltage, though there is no minimum safe circuit length. Some cars, most computers and anything connected to the grid would be destroyed as well as the transformers in the grid themselves.

Far worse than simply living in the 1800s, modern cities are fed by long supply chains and mechanized agriculture that would collapse.

Electronic banking and payment would cease and millions would revert back to a barter and trade economy as forms of payment.

So what can be done? The Edison Electrical Group  cost estimates range from as little as two hundred million to as much as twenty billion dollars to harden the US electrical grid from attack through installation of specialized transformers.

So far, the Obama Administration hasn’t seen fit to protect the nation against such threats and, in response to a few lawmakers, such as Representative Franks, some states have begun to explore the possibility of taking steps of their own.

After trillions in deficit spending and $800 million in stimulus spending in the last decade, the cost of preparation doesn’t seem high considering the consequences.

The Internet Must Be Destroyed

The Internet Must Be Destroyed

July 9, 2016 (American Thinker) –We are living in revolutionary times.  Much of the responsibility for this social ferment is due to the revolution in communications.  This is the glasnost, or openness, that helped to bring down the Soviet Union.

At one time, an elite could have almost total control of the dissemination of information.  Millions of people could be intentionally starved to death without media attention.  For decades, three television networks and two major newspapers had a virtual monopoly on the news.

The internet has diminished the elite’s exclusive control over the flow of information.  They will not tolerate this, and efforts are being made to control alternate sources of information.  The New Year’s Eve sexual assault in Cologne, Germany incident revealed the elite’s need to control the internet.

The events in Cologne and other European cities threatened Angela Merkel’s and the EU’s refugee policy.  It was not the events themselves, but public knowledge of these events that had to be prevented.

The initial press release from the Cologne police read: “A mood of exuberance – largely peaceful celebrations.”  Yet one witness claimed, “Well seasoned police officers then confessed to me that they never saw something like this in their entire life. They called it a civil war like situation.”  Apparently, the police were under pressure to deceive the public.  A police officer claims he was instructed by the Ministry of the Interior to rewrite his reports omitting to word “rape.”

Accurate reporting of the events in Cologne by the media took four days.  This led the Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten to claim that the police were lying.  Information was leaked to the press, which led to an investigation to find the whistleblowers.  They face up to five years in prison.

The media has also been reluctant to report on crimes committed by refugees.  The ZDF (Zweiten Deutschen Fernsehens) apologized for not reporting on the attacks until four days after they occurred.  ZDF Editor in chief Ina-Maria Reize-Wildemann explained, “We don’t want to inflame the situation and spread the bad mood. [The migrants] don’t deserve it.”

Prior to the Cologne incident, Angela Merkel was working to restrict the information available on the internet.  In September 2015, Merkel met with Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg at a U.N. summit in New York.  On an open microphone, she asked him to curtail speech critical of “the wave of Syrian refugees entering Germany.”  Zuckerberg responded “We need to do some work.”  Merkel asked, “Are you working on this?”  Zuckerberg replied, “Yeah.”

Several organizations have been enlisted in the effort to control the free flow of “dangerous” information.  The European Commission announced a partnership with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Microsoft in order to crack down on what it classifies as “illegal hate speech.”  Facebook is working with the German publisher Bertelsmann to eliminate “racist” post from its site.  Twitter is working with the ADL, the Dangerous Speech Project, Feminist Frequency, GLAAD, Fundacion para la Libertad de Prensa, and Hollaback.  The German government and Facebook were working with ex-Stasi agent Anetta Kahane.  The United Nations has also become involved: Liu Jieyi, Beijing’s permanent representative to the U.N., said that institutions promoting “extremist ideologies” need to be “closed down.”

The individuals and organizations partnering with internet companies have a set of values that do not reflect popular opinion.  This is illustrated by a statement by Ralf Jaeger, the Interior Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia: “What happens on the right-wing platforms and in chatrooms is at least as awful as the acts of those assaulting the women.”

By proclaiming that their efforts are directed toward fighting terrorism, the elite have been able to enlist many conservatives.  However, their primary objective is to stifle criticism of Islam, homosexuality, climate change, abortion, and many other subjects on their agenda.  These all fall under the category of “hate speech.”

There are numerous examples of governments intimidating critics of their policies.  A Scottish man was been arrested for “a series of alleged offensive online posts relating to Syrian refugees.  Police in the Netherlands have visited the homes of citizens who made posts deemed overly critical of the Dutch government’s policies towards refugees.  Neil Phillips was arrested for comments made on his Facebook page.  He was released and informed he would not be prosecuted due to “insufficient evidence.”  Ivar Mol was visited by Belgian police after he tweeted about “Muslim schoolchildren cheering” after a terrorist attack.

The internet elite appears to have a Marcusian belief in “liberating tolerance” – that is, “intolerance against movements from the Right and toleration of movements from the Left.”  Zuckerberg has expressed his support for BlackLivesMatter in an internal memo chastising Facebook employees for defacing Black Lives Matter slogans on the company’s internal “signature wall.”

The censors at Twitter were apparently satisfied with an account called “Kill Donald Trump” for at least six months.  A tweet calling for the slaughter of Dresden civilians by feminist Mercedes Reichstein has not resulted in a police visit.
