      Experts say it may be time for grocery stores to ban customers from coming inside because of Covid-19

      By Nathaniel Meyersohn, CNN Business. Updated 10:47 PM ET, Sun April 19, 2020

      (NewYork CNN Business) Dozens of grocery store workers have died from the coronavirus, despite masks, temperature checks and capacity restrictions to keep them safe. So far, supermarkets have resisted the most draconian policy: banning customers from coming inside.

      However, some worker experts, union leaders and small grocery owners believe it has become too dangerous to let customers browse aisles, coming into close range with workers. Grocery stores are still flooded with customers, and experts say it’s time for large chains to go “dark” to the public and convert to curbside pickup and home delivery for food and other essential goods.
      “Careless customers” are “probably the biggest threat” to workers right now, according to Marc Perrone, president of the United Food and Commercial Workers’ union. The union said 85% of its grocery store member workers reported that customers are not practicing social distancing in stores.

      “Anything that reduces the need for interaction with the public and allows for greater physical distancing will ultimately better protect grocery workers,” said John Logan, professor and director of Labor and Employment Studies at San Francisco State University. “Shuttering stores and repurposing them for pickup and delivery only would be a positive step.”  Many small, independent grocery stores have done this to protect their staff.

      Mike Houston, general manager of Takoma Park Silver Spring Co-op in Takoma Park, Maryland, decided to close his grocery store to the public in late March, when the state announced a shelter-in-place order, and switch to curbside pickup.

      “It was clearer that there was no real way to protect my staff and the public, especially as we served 960 people a day on average in a 4,200-square-foot store,” Houston said. “I’m unwilling to put grocery store employees, essential though we are, in a position to risk what can be a fatal infection.”  Some large companies like Best Buy (BBY), which has a strong online infrastructure, have also switched over to this model during the crisis.

      New regulations
      Public safety officials are not requiring essential stores to shut down to customers, but the US Labor Department last week recommended that retailers start “using a drive-through window or offering curbside pick-up” to protect workers for exposure to coronavirus. The California Department of Industrial Relations said this week that companies should “encourage customer use of online order and pickup.”

      Some big grocers are slowly starting to move in this direction. Whole Foods has closed down a store in New York City’s Bryant Park area and transitioned it into an online-only store, focused solely on deliveries. Kroger (KR) and Giant Eagle have switched a few stores to pickup and delivery-only locations.

      But these are a fraction of stores in their wide networks. And most large chains have hesitated to shut down to the public. Instead, they are implementing more limited policies like taking workers’ temperatures and restricting the number customers inside stores at a time. Companies are calling on families to cut back on their trips to the store and shop alone if they can.

      City and state governments are stepping in to force stricter safety measures than the companies have adopted. Los Angeles, Miami, Washington DC, New Jersey, Maryland and New York have ordered shoppers to wear masks or face coverings in stores. Vermont has required big box chains like Walmart to close down their “non-essential” sections like furniture, home and garden equipment and arts and crafts.

      Will pickup and delivery-only work?
      Some companies and safety experts say it’s not feasible to convert all grocery stores to delivery and pickup-only outposts. Ordering systems for both pickup and delivery are completely overwhelmed by a crush of demand from customers in many areas of the country.

      “We have no choice. They have to stay open. [America’s grocery] delivery system has not matured to the point where we can switch to an entirely remote system,” said Seth Harris, former deputy secretary of labor during the Obama administration.

      Online pickup and delivery requires a much larger staff than grocery stores are currently equipped with. That could fill supermarkets to capacity with workers, defeating the purpose of removing the public from stores.

      Paying that many workers would also cost grocers a lot more money, and many smaller chains don’t have the resources. They have already hired more workers during the pandemic to meet demand, and they’re raising pay for existing employeesto convince them to stay on the job. Grocers operate on razor-thin margins, and for many, the recent increase in sales because of coronavirus has been wiped out by the increases they’ve needed to make in payroll.

      “I think that’s one of the major reasons chains are reluctant to do the switch,” said Logan from San Francisco State University.
      A Trader Joe’s representative said that while “we understand that during this time customers would appreciate a delivery or pick up service,” the grocer’s “systems are not set up in a way that would allow us to be able to offer these services, and at the same time maintain our commitment to offering value to our customers.”

      Switching to online pickup and delivery may also burden low-income customers who can’t afford fees that often come with these orders, customers without internet access and food stamp recipients. Most food stamp recipients are ineligible to use their assistance to purchase groceries online, although the Department of Agriculture has doubled the number of states that allow food recipients to order online in the past few weeks.

      And converting to online-only may not completely solve the safety problem either because an influx of gig workers would have to be in the store to pick and fulfill all of the orders.

      It’s an imperfect solution, said Charlane Obernauer, executive director of the New York Committee for Occupational Safety and Health. “Workers would still have exposure if they are delivering goods or if they are in the supermarket.” Still, in Malvern, Iowa, Mulholland Groceryhas stopped allowing customers inside and moved to curbside pickup.

      “We’re in a small town. The employees that I have, they’re just like family. I have known many of these people my whole life. I don’t want to take the chance of having someone get sick,” said owner Tom Mulholland. “There are very few businesses that get the foot traffic that a grocery store does.”

      Mulholland and Mike Houston in Maryland say their staffs are working harder than ever to select all of their customers’ orders, but they’re getting more efficient each day and the trade-off is worth it to keep everyone safe.

      “Any store still allowing hundreds of members of the public to enter every day is taking a calculated risk on behalf of their front line staff,” Houston said. “That is highly irresponsible to me.”

      CNN — fake news! Trying to increase the hype. The deaths are certainly not increased any more for this group over any other group with multiple co-morbidities. I have been in the grocery store weekly, I am not seeing this as truth, Lowe’s even is practicing physical distancing, as is Walmart. It’s the medianites at it again, trying to drum up panic to sell fake news to an uneducated public.

      On July 1st …. ”Netanyahu, as the presiding prime minister, will be allowed to bring the issue of extending sovereignty to territories identified in the Trump peace plan — named “Peace to Prosperity:whistle:   :popcorn :popcorn :popcorn

       

      Per Savedat33
      Daniel 9:27 tells us that there is an existing ‘peace’ deal/ covenant for seven years.  Which means there has to be an agreement or frame work for the treaty already in place for the antichrist to be able to do so. Oh!!! And wait until you see the actual name given to the plan!

      ————————-
      A newly formed Israeli government is laying the groundwork to enact the first steps of President Trump’s Middle East peace deal, announcing plans to discuss annexing parts of the West Bank by the summer.

      The move to exercise sovereignty over territory identified in the U.S. plan could mark a major unilateral step to reshape the region.

      It could also give Trump a political win among his base of pro-Israel and evangelical supporters ahead of the elections in November.

      In a deal struck in Israel on Monday for a “national emergency government,” head of the Blue and White political party Benny Gantz signed an agreement with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that, in part, allows talks for annexation to move forward.

      The agreement on annexation is the only policy outside of the coronavirus that can be discussed within the first six months of the unity government, according to a summary of the terms.

      The Trump peace plan and annexation were key sticking points in negotiations between the two leaders after a year of three successive but inconclusive elections.

      “In allowing Netanyahu freedom of action on this, Gantz has made a major policy concession to Netanyahu on an issue of long-term consequence,” said Natan Sachs, Director of the Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institution.

      Beginning July 1, Netanyahu, as the presiding prime minister, will be allowed to bring the issue of extending sovereignty to territories identified in the Trump peace plan — named “Peace to Prosperity” — for a discussion among the security Cabinet and a vote in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

      The specifics of any discussion are unclear, including whether it will call for beginning steps for unilateral annexation, only voting on an agreement on annexation in principle or the opportunity to reject unilateral moves outside of negotiations with the Palestinians.

      “From July, the presiding prime minister will be allowed to bring President Trump’s statement with regard to the realization of Israeli sovereignty to government and Parliament, following due process,” Gantz said in a statement.

      Converting Trump’s peace plan into facts on the ground would further strengthen the president’s argument that his administration is among the most pro-Israel.

      Among his actions, Trump moved the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, recognized Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights and exited the nuclear deal with Iran — which drew the praise of Netanyahu and conservative groups within the pro-Israel community in the U.S.

      A significant part of the Republican Party constituency and parts of the evangelical community tend to be more to the right politically on Israel, and “Netanyahu has repeatedly been an important validator of Trump to that constituency,” said Tamara Cofman Wittes, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, where she focuses on U.S. policy in the Middle East.

      “It gives Netanyahu a reason to praise Trump to this constituency that pays attention to Netanyahu, and that helps Trump with that constituency,” she added.

      The agreement on annexation discussions represents a major political win for Netanyahu, who is facing a corruption trial that was postponed until May 24 amid the country’s coronavirus lockdown.

      “The fact that annexation is included as the only non-coronavirus major policy issue to be discussed during the government’s first six months is a statement of how important it is to the Israeli right and how they view the window of its possibility to be closing should President Trump not be reelected,” said Michael Koplow, policy director for the nonprofit Israel Policy Forum.

      “Annexation is the right’s top policy priority, and for many of them, their support of Netanyahu during his legal problems is contingent on his delivering West Bank sovereignty. That it was singularly included in the agreement should be taken as a sign of how close it is to coming to fruition,” he added.

      Israeli and U.S. officials have worked since February to map parts of the West Bank for annexation, refining borders that were first identified in maps released as part of the Trump administration’s peace plan for Israelis and Palestinians and introduced at the end of January

      Per Geoffrey Grider at NTEB

      20 world leaders and global health figures held the first New World Order virtual COVID-19 response meeting, run by the French president, Emmanuel Macron, and the population control eugenicist Bill Gates.
      We have been showing you their every move since the COVID-19 global crisis began, and today we bring you this blockbuster story that is simply astonishing when you consider the speed at which all this is coming together. Last week we showed you how French president Emmanuel Macron has been positioning himself for months now to lead the New World Order that is being created during the global lockdown, and the other day in Europe he chaired the very first meeting of this nascent grouping of nations. By his side, virtually of course, was eugenicist Bill Gates who is waiting in the wings with his syringe and digital ID for ‘every person on earth’. It has officially begun.

      On May 4 they are going to do it again, this time being co-chaired by Britain. On June 4, they will host a ‘Global Vaccines Summit‘ headed by Emmanuel Macron … and  His buddy Bill Gates is beaming from ear to ear, rubbing his hands with glee at the prospect of injecting nearly 8 billion people with a vaccine, and then forcing them to take a digital Immunity Passport. That’s how close we are to Flight #777 taking off. Hope you’re ready.

      Leader Emmanuel Macron told the meeting: “We will continue now to mobilise all G7 and G20 countries so they get behind this initiative.”

      Look what just came over from Asia … I wonder if this will contribute to the future food shortages?

      Asia’s ‘murder hornet’ found in US for first time

      NY Post.com
      By Paula Froelich

      May 2, 2020

      Enough already.

      Now, deadly hornets from Asia that measure up to 2 inches long have been found for the first time in the US — and researchers are worried they’re colonizing.

      The aggressive insects, nicknamed “murder hornets,” can wipe out bee colonies within hours and have stingers long and powerful enough to puncture beekeeping suits.

      Beekeepers in Washington have already seen the hornets devastate their hives; Japan attributes 50 human deaths a year to the nasty buzzers, which have “teardrop eyes like Spider-Man, orange and black stripes that extend down its body like a tiger, and broad, wispy wings like a small dragonfly,” according to the New York Times.

      Researchers are determined to keep the hornets in check.

      “This is our window to keep it from establishing,” Washington state entomologist Chris Looney told the Times. “If we can’t do it in the next couple of years, it probably can’t be done.”

      Wondering if these murder bees were also man-made in their lab?

      I noticed the wasp seem to be more aggressive this spring.  I had to kill 4 so far.   I take it in the tribulation all the animals (including domestic pets), birds, insects, etc. will go berserk …  they will no longer have fear of man it will revert back to like it was “in the days of Noah”.  After the flood we have this interesting passage in Genesis 9:1-4  “And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.  And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered. Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.”

      The removal of the fear of man from beasts will not happen until the restrainer is taken out of the earth according to the beginning of the judgements in Revelation. But, unfortunately there are believers who do no separate the judgements from the rapture of the church under grace. This tends to add fear, this is not of God. Throughout time, humankind has seen pestilence and attempts to destroy man in a various number of ways, because satan hates (limited wording) Gods creation. What we see now is just a taste of things to come, when the restrainer is removed along with the bride. We, as His children, need to fear not, trust completely that God is working ALL things out according to His purpose. We do not exist in a bubble, we exist by Gods almighty grace.
      It is interesting to see these things occur, but without fear, without anxiety, without anger, and with complete trust, as a child trusts the Father. My thought (personal opinion only), has always reflected on the fact that those (believers) who do not think that satan will not give evil man the ability to create or enhance genetically to change Gods creation to be harmful, damaging, and killing live in that bubble. God continues to limit him, but one day, very soon… God himself will judge the earth, deal with His broken covenant that Israel did not keep, now that is fearful, to fall into the hands of an almighty righteous judge, but Christ and His sacrifice! When God sees the blood…. :prayer-hands: I for one, am truly thankful for the blood shed for my sinfulness and the Grace of God to allow the Bridegroom to remove the Bride before earth’s judgement comes. The deed of the earth has to be dealt with and according to the Revelation of Jesus Christ as given to John and Paul, it will be as God has bought back the deed through the blood of the lamb. How glorious! :prayer-hands:

      There is a court proceeding in Israel, in order to decide if Netanyahu can stay as PM while the indictment against him is on. The supreme court shall decide in two days. If the ruling is against Netanyahu, it will likely trigger the fourth election. If this is the case, my bet is Gantz will win the fourth election, and becomes the 69th leader of Israel since Moses.

      Hmmm … here’s some popcorn as we watch this unfold …  :popcorn :popcorn :popcorn

      The Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) expects that Russia, Turkey and Iran will reach a consensus to remove the head of the Syrian regime, Bashar Al-Assad, and establish a ceasefire in exchange for forming a transitional government that includes the opposition, members of the regime and the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

      The RIAC, which is known to be close to the decision-makers in the Russian government, said in a report that a Russian organisation named the Foundation for the Protection of National Values, affiliated with the security services and the office of President Vladimir Putin, has been conducting an opinion poll in Syria.

      This would send a very clear political message, conveying that the Syrian people do not want Al-Assad to remain president.

      The report stated that, since the beginning of its military intervention in Syria, Moscow has been keen to avoid being presented as the defender of Al-Assad, adding that in negotiations it has stressed that “the Syrian people will decide whether or not Al-Assad will remain in power”.

      Russia has become more serious about making changes in Syria, RIAC explained, not least because protecting Al-Assad has become a burden.

      Russia’s TASS news agency explained: “Russia is suspecting that Al-Assad is not only unable to lead the country anymore, but also that the head of the Syrian regime is dragging Moscow towards the Afghani scenario, which is a very disconcerting possibility for Russia.”

      Meanwhile, the news agency added that Iran, which is suffering from stifling US sanctions, has no interest in achieving stability in the whole region, because it considers it a battlefield with Washington.

      The news agency considered that while Moscow is ready to use Al-Assad to negotiate an agreement that guarantees its interests; it is sacrificing Syrians to ensure that Al-Assad remains in power.

      According to TASS, Al-Assad cannot refuse the Russians’ demands, so he makes them hear what they want to hear, but in the end, he implements Tehran’s demands.

      The Russian news agency stressed that Moscow is working on a combination of scenarios including one that sees forces present in Syria accepting each other’s scope of influence. As a result, Syria would remain divided into a region protected by Tehran and Moscow, the opposition region supported by Turkey, and the East Euphrates supported by Washington and the SDF, explained TASS.

      It indicated that the second option requires a complete withdrawal of all foreign forces and the unification of the country after achieving a political transformation in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution No. 2254.

      The news agency considered that this option is less costly for all parties.

      Turkey has long called for the removal of Al-Assad as a prerequisite to the end of its operation in Syria.

        Or will he order his little army to launch missiles over to Israel and IDF has no other option but to bomb Damascus? :unsure:

        Then that gets G/M team upset to try to invade over the Golan Heights? :unsure:

        Or is IDF watching this VERY closely as Assad agrees to leave without a protest.  But then IDF is worried that Iran will get their hands on those chemical weapons so they have no other option but to bomb certain areas where they know they are stored and the whole city explodes? :unsure:

        Or …… ?

      Interesting update from Sean Osborne’s blog “Eschatology Today”

      UPDATE 4 May 2020: A simple and to the point update. Israel is now striking Iranian military targets in Syria with regularity and impunity, from the Iraqi border to the Lebanese border. 

      4 May 2020: The Iranian-Russian issue (discussed below) has another facet: the Iranian Twelver regime holds a much higher level of influence over the al-Assad regime than Russia does. In fact, Syria has become openly defiant against Russia’s demands for returns on its investment in saving the regime from being overthrown. Chalk up the Syria-Iran alliance and defiance of Russia to the Shi’a-Alawi brotherhood. Alawi’s adhere to the teachings of the 12th imam, Ali, making them a sect of Shi’a Islam.

      There are also increasing reports of American and Russian military tensions in northern Syria, mainly in the Tall Tamr and Qamishli region. In the first incident a fist fight erupted between American and Russian troops, with some Russians being on a medevac for hospital treatment. In the second and third confrontations, at Qamishli and Tall Tamr respectively, the two used their armored vehicles to block the other side from continuing its patrol. As this was occurring a heavy aircraft presence above kept close tabs on what the boots on the ground were doing. Syria is rapidly deteriorating under such tensions. The Damascus government has little, if any, effective control over the entire northern and northeastern regions. 

      3 May 2020: Eschatology Today is now seeing the geopolitical and military dynamic that had existed in Syria for the past five years (since Russian military intervention of 2015) changing significantly. The former fraternal relationship between Russia and Iran, united in an effort to save the Alawite regime of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad from the Sunni-led revolt, has in recent weeks begun to unravel to the point of being completely undone.

      This is due to the divergence of Russian and Iranian objectives in Syria. Russia wants considerable economic and military rewards from Syria as due recompense for its intervention in saving al-Assad’s regime from the Sunni revolt, while the Iranian Twelvers in Tehran remain committed to their eschatologically-driven goal of Shi’a hegemony over Iraq, Syria and Lebanon as essential to the destruction of State of Israel.

      Obviously these two objectives are mutually exclusive; they cannot possibly exist simultaneously within Syria. The Iranian war plan is an existential threat to Russia’s interest in a reconstructed and economically healthy Syria simply because the resultant devastation of Syria in an apocalyptic Shi’a-Alawite war against Israel would rapidly nullify the Syria that Russia believes it has bought and paid for. 

      As we know from the prophetic texts of Isaiah and Jeremiah there is a certain fate awaiting Syria that is wholly contrary to Russia achieving its objectives. Recall in September 2018 how Syrian air defenses mistakenly shot down a Russian reconnaissance aircraft, killing the 15-man air crew and sparking a crisis in Israeli-Russian relations. This crisis occurred because Russia wrongly blamed Israel’s military instead of Syria’s military for the tragedy.

      Eschatology Today is once again leaning forward in considering the possibility of a Russian leader wrongly blaming Israel again in the near future for the coming devastation of Damascus and of all Syria, a devastation brought about by the Shia Twelver’s and their apocalyptic, Mahdi-hastening eschatology. Such devastation of Syria would necessarily result in massive if not crippling economic and military loses for Russia. Could this be the real-world origin for the evil thoughts and “hooks” placed into the jaws of Ezekiel 38:4, for the desire to invade and to take plunder and despoil an Israel at peace, living securely with no one presenting a threat?

      I have often leaned towards Damascus blowing itself up by “accidentally” —- albeit “intentionally” triggering the nukes and of course Israel gets the blame, they always due…. Amir mentioned in his update last night regarding the increase in Israeli activity toward Syria. As we (America) has pulled out to let the Sunni and Shiites fight amongst themselves, Russia wins. :popcorn :popcorn :popcorn :popcorn :prayer-hands:

        I’ve been following all of the conspiracy stuff just as much as all of the Rapture stuff for over 10 years now. And everything I heard people talking about back then as to what was coming (And they thought it was going to happen back then) Is now starting to happen for real.

        Back then I heard they ultimately wanted to collapse the economy, declare martial law, take away everyone’s guns and put everyone into either a work camp or death camp (red, blue, and yellow lists) People were even talking about them using a virus or an emp to achieve this.

        They have collapsed the economy and have basically declared martial law by declaring a national emergency and state emergencies.

      I just saw a video friend sent it to me. Nine Saudi national were beheaded for their crime against a 7 year old girl. They have raped her.  The video is very violent. There were fear among the nine Saudi before the execution. One by one their head was chopped off. I guess this beheading shall become norm in the second half of tribulation.

        Yep, I recall reading a few articles in 2015 about the purchase of these guillotines and 1.6 billion rounds of ammo for homeland security and turning some of the abandon Walmarts into FEMA camps. :wacko:

        During the tribulation … I wouldn’t at all be surprised if they have plans to place these guillotines in every sports stadiums … and  it will be like in the Roman times when they martyred the Christians to the lions or burned them at the stakes in their coliseum it was sick and gory entertainment. :cry:

        And they can kill a lot of people real fast with that many guillotines. If each one killed 1 person every 5 minutes that would be 8,640,000 in 24 hours !

        It make me think of Revelation 17:6

        And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.

        It also makes me think if America is Mystery Babylon does she become drunk with the blood of the saints just before the Tribulation begins and/or after ???

        In agreement … we can’t rule out America of not being Mystery Babylon because they are right now playing a MEGA role in getting things ready to force the tribulation people to receive the mark of the beast and will be tracking them and then painful sores eventually breakout after they take the Gates’ vaccine.  The Beast system will also be responsible for murdering many tribulation saints and the prophets … 2 witnesses and 144,000. :cry:

         

        Revelation 9:21
        Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries (aka pharmaceutical drugs/vaccine), nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

        Revelation 16:2-11
        And the first went, and poured out his vial upon the earth; and there fell a noisome and grievous sore upon the men which had the mark of the beast, and upon them which worshipped his image.

        And the second angel poured out his vial upon the sea; and it became as the blood of a dead man: and every living soul died in the sea.

        And the third angel poured out his vial upon the rivers and fountains of waters; and they became blood.

        And I heard the angel of the waters say, Thou art righteous, O Lord, which art, and wast, and shalt be, because thou hast judged thus.

        For they have shed the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; for they are worthy.

        And I heard another out of the altar say, Even so, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.

        And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire.

        And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

        And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

        And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

      Revelation 13:15 And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

      This false prophet shall cause many deaths who won’t worship the beast.

      Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

      Their death is caused by beheading. Saudi is the only major Islamic country which still carries out beheading as their death punishment. This is one of the reasons I believe the false prophet shall come from Saudi.

      If Mohammed Bin Salman holds on to power after rapture, there is a good chance that he is the false prophet. The reason God calls the second beast “the false prophet”, because he (from Islam) follows their “false prophet” Mohammad. He has two horns like a Lamb. The two horns are Sunni and Shiite. Islam speaks like a Lamb because they believe their god is the same God of Judaism and Christianity.

      Our Crime Minister in Canada is excited about using Canadians for guinea pigs in September, apparently. The Rapture can’t come soon enough. :prayer-hands:

      Justin Trudeau has invited the Chinese Army to inoculate Canadians with an alleged vaccine developed by the Chinese.

      The formula, Ad5-nCoV, was developed by Xi Jinping’s army in partnership with a Chinese company, CanSinoBIO.

      Trudeau’s health department hopes to have the military vaccine tested on certain Canadians by September of this year.

      “Canada will now be part of the front-runner story,” said Roman Szumski, an executive at the National Research Council.

      In typical communist fashion, the developers of the Chinese formula have refused media requests from Canadian outlets.

      Trust in China is at an all time low in Canada: Late last year, fewer than 1 in 3 Canadians had a favourable view of the communist nation, and that number has since dropped even further.

      the fulfillment of Ezekiel 29:6-12 could happen soon!

      6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel. 7 When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand. 8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee. 9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I have made it. 10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia. 11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years. 12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of  the countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse them through the countries” (Ezek. 29:6-12).
