          I have been enjoying Britt Gillette videos. I have come to think of him as closet guy!

            Sorry for this negative response but I found him to be depressing … perhaps that is why he is staying in his bunker closet because he thinks the timing of the Gog/Magog war is YEARS away and life on planet earth will continually get worse and worse ? :wacko:   How can that be logically when  the WEF wants to bring in their godless utopia in 2023 and the average family right now are living from paycheck to paycheck and they keep pushing on the people to take the harmful vaxx and now concentrating on the little kids to kill them off ?  With his take on the timing  of events … then there will hardly be anybody left when the tribulation does officially starts … if he truly believes the Gog/Magog war is YEARS away.    I just don’t  get his logic … but yet he ends his youtube with rapture is soon.  How soon?   I wonder if he thinks there is a MAJOR gap like YEARS instead of weeks or months in time frame from the rapture and the start of the tribulation?

             

            In the comment section I saw this  unpopular view of the Gog/Magog what are your thoughts on this far out statement?

            “I disagree. The Bible is quite clear if follow good exegesis and study Esther 9 and Ezekiel that Gog Magog war was fulfilled during the time of Esther. Haman the Agagite in Esther is synonymous with Hamon-Gog in Ezekiel. Haman in Esther was promoted by the King to the position of chief prince which is exactly what Ezekiel prophecies. During that time, the villages in Israel were not secure with walls (Esther 9:19) as Ezekiel also prophecies, and even Jerusalem was unwalled before being rebuilt by Nehemiah. Both Ezekiel 38 and Esther 9 appear at first to be certain annihilation of the Jews, but the reverse happens and God strikes Israel’s enemies. There is no more Gog and Magog and hasn’t been for thousands of years, and never will be. The only emergence of Gog Magog according to Revelation 20, is when the large army that was killed and buried on mountains of Israel in Esther’s day, are resurrected on the last day (Revelation 20:9), only to be immediately consumed and cast into lake of fire. There is no actual battle in Revelation 20. There is no future Gog Magog war. It already occurred. That is just misinterpretation of scripture.”

            My thoughts are if this is the case with Gog/Magog has already happened … and prophecy teachers just got the interpretation wrong … then who are the young lions in reference of in Esther’s day?  Was Great Britain, Australia and Canada nations back then? :scratch:   All I know is America sure wasn’t .

            “Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?”

              I guess I will have to listen again more closely. I was mainly listening to the news.  I Know people place that war in different places. After the rapture as the red horse for some. I just had the impression that he wasn’t wanting to put a date on anything.  I think the rapture is very soon with all the talk of the Messiah being here and them putting up signs about it in New York. Keeps me on the edge of my seat.

                With the theory that the G/M war already happened in Esther’s day makes me want to do a study on who the young lions were and if perhaps there really isn’t any such future war any time soon  :unsure:   until at least 1,007 more years in Revelation 20 –

                7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

                8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

                9 And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.

                10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

                  Well here are a few translations of Ezekiel 38:13

                  NIV
                  The Merchants of Tarshish and all her villages

                  English Standard Version

                  Amplified Bible
                  The Merchants of Tarshish (southern Spain) with all its young lions (villages)

                  Christian Standard
                  The Merchants of Tarshish with all its rulers

                  Contemporary English Version

                  Geneva Bible

                  Merchants of Tarshish with all the lions

                  750C45EB-AA54-4B67-90F8-8F3B3603180A

                  Looking at this old Bible map … Tarshish is indeed located in Southern Spain  … its a seaport … a Phoenician Colony at one time.   And all its villages, or young lions are France, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, etc.   Sure puts a whole new twist on things. B-)   

                  So did the Gog/Magog war already occur in Esther’s time like that one watcher already brought out in the comment section of Britt Gillette’s youtube?  Will there even be a Gog/Magog war before the tribulation?  Perhaps its only a Psalm 83 one?  And remaining Gog/Magog war  will be in Revelation 20:8-9 at the end of the 1,000 years of the Millennium?

                  What are your thoughts?    I’m totally confused. :wacko:

                    There’s absolutely no doubt in my mind that Ezekiel 38 is still future, and equally so that it’s not the Gog-Magog in Revelation.  Just reading Ezekiel in context and in order leaves no doubt on that, let alone today’s events and international movements matching up exactly.  And many other reasons…

                     

                    Psalm 83… I don’t even read that as a prophecy.  And if is, I think it has already been fulfilled.  And it does not match up with today’s events because with Iran so entrenched in Syria there is absolutely no way they would stay out of it… destroying Israel and bringing in their Mahdi are basically their two main reasons for existing as a government.

                      Wars and rumors of wars!  Past, present and future.  i have always believed that if a war or any war,  is used as a sign, it would more prominently figure into present events.  Easily identified and understood!  Likewise also as the temples rebuilding!  The open ended ambiguity concerning specific date setting is in keeping with our faith in God and His sovereignty.   Again, no singular sign can be anticipated to herald the Rapture!  Rather, an overall climate of sin and evil being overspread upon the Earth!  And a general picture IE:  season of our departure!  Also, we need to tread lightly with prophetic interpretation as to keep from a presumptuous spirit!  Who cares when these wars occur or when the Temple is rebuilt?  Not germane to our faith, the Rapture’s timing, or God’s eventual fulfillment of His plans for men!  We need to stop beating a dead horse so to speak and more diligently focus upon our individual faith!  It will all come out in the wash!  TR

                          Germany Could Run Out of Gas by February, Must Cut Consumption by Up to 30 Percent:

                          Germany could be completely out of gas by February, the country’s gas agency has said, with some experts saying that the country needs to cut consumption by 30 percent to make it through the crisis intact.

                          . . . . .gas consumption amongst the general public has yet to noticeably go down, indicating that Germany may yet have difficulty reaching its 20 percent reduction goal, let alone the 30 percent reduction some think is required.

                          Despite such a warning echoing that made by the country’s economic and climate minister Robert Habeck earlier this month, the country’s Chancellor seems to have denied such a reality, telling the European Parliament earlier today that Germany is “well prepared” for the coming winter.

                          Chancellor Olaf Scholz bragged to the European Union on Thursday that his country has now managed to “free” itself from its dependence on Russian gas.

                          However, while the Chancellor seemed to have no problem lauding the achievements of his own government, he failed to address the currently ongoing problems being experienced in the country, which has mass-insolvencies of businesses as well as empty shelves in supermarkets as certain products as inflation renders them too expensive to produce at current prices.

                                Leftist: CNN And MSNBC Do “Milquetoast Corporate Propaganda” — So Independents And Even Democrats Watch Fox News:

                                Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur said that even Democrats and independents are watching Fox News.

                                In a Twitter thread, he called Fox News programming “interesting” — and pointed out that CNN and MSNBC are just “milquetoast corporate propaganda.”

                                A majority of independents watch @FoxNews. Very few watch @CNN or @MSNBC (less than a quarter). Fox News even has 3 out of the top 4 most-watched cable news show – for Democrats! Why? Because they do interesting programming, while the others do milquetoast corporate propaganda.

                                Even Democrats know CNN and MSNBC are fake news!

                                  Drama at Chinese Communist Party summit: Xi predecessor Hu Jintao hauled out:
                                  Xi sits as former Chinese President Hu Jintao is forcibly removed from closing ceremony of Chinese Communist Party meeting.

                                  Former Chinese President Hu Jintao was unexpectedly led out of the closing ceremony for the Chinese Communist Party meeting Saturday while he sat next to President Xi Jinping.

                                  The 79-year-old, the direct predecessor to Xi, was seated to the left of the Chinese leader before two men who appeared to be security officials approached him and forced him to leave his seat.

                                  The ceremony marked the end to a week-long congressional meeting that solidified a third term for Xi, making him the longest-serving Chinese leader since Mao Zedong.

                                  Video footage of the starkly unusual incident circulated on social media, sparking questions over why the former leader, who served from 2003 to 2013, was forcibly escorted away.  Footage released by AFP showed an official attempting to forcibly lift Hu from his seat as Xi turned to him.  Xi did not directly watch as Hu was removed from his seat but instead sat with his head tilted, listening to what was unfolding.

                                  Hu did not appear as though he wished to leave the event, and he touched the back of Xi’s right arm and said something to the Chinese leader.  Xi again did not turn to look but nodded and said something in reply as Hu was led out with the official guiding him by holding his upper arm.

                                  No explanation has been given as to what was said or why Hu was forced the leave the ceremony.

                                  Reports said the incident occurred as reporters were called in to cover the ceremony, but mention of the day’s drama was removed from China’s Twitter-like platform, Weibo, and was missing entirely from Chinese news coverage, according to Reuters.

                                    Look What’s Happening in Sweden! After Decades of Failed Globalism, New Government Puts the Citizens First:

                                    Sweden last month made a sharp turn right and fired the woke, leftist Social Democrats who have dominated government throughout most of the country’s history. With the formation of a new conservative government last week, the citizens will now hopefully reap the rewards.

                                    New Swedish Prime Minister Ulf Kristersson announced a new direction on several national issues with the most acute shift on immigration. Sweden for decades operated a lax policy toward immigrants and ignored the challenges integrating millions of people from across the world, especially from Muslim countries, into their society. The results have proven tragic. Rape crimes have risen 2200% since 1975, with 42,936 reported in the last five years. 61 places in Sweden are now “no-go” zones with police allowing extremists to operate unimpeded due to them being outnumbered.  This madness will now thankfully end.

                                    In a speech to Parliament, Kristersson promised a review of the penal code and expanded powers to police to fight criminal gangs that have grown more powerful and violent in recent years.

                                    “No other country in all of Europe has the same trend of violence as Sweden: 53 fatal shootings so far this year, often outright executions,” he said. “The government now begins the biggest offensive in Swedish history against organized crime.”

                                    He also promised a “paradigm shift” on immigration, ending decades of liberal immigration policies that had started to tighten under the previous Social Democratic government.  “Immigration to Sweden has been unsustainable,” resulting in poor integration, unemployment, insecurity, and other problems, Kristersson said.

                                      Auroras blasted a 250-mile-wide hole in Earth’s ozone layer:

                                      Auroras set off spectacular light shows in the night sky, but they are also illuminating another reason the ozone layer is being eaten away.

                                      Although humans are to blame for much of the ozone layer’s depletion, observations of a type of aurora known as an isolated proton aurora have revealed a cause of ozone depletion that comes from space: Charged particles in plasma belched out by solar flares and coronal mass ejections also keep gnawing at the ozone layer. Before now, the influence of these particles were only vaguely known.

                                      Now, an international research team has found that the effects of isolated proton auroras caused a nearly 250-mile-wide (400 kilometers) hole in the ozone layer, which gaped right below where an aurora occurred. Most of the ozone vanished within about an hour and a half. The researchers had not expected nearly so much ozone to degrade in the wake of this phenomenon, they explained in a statement.

                                      Though the damage left behind in mesospheric ozone does repair itself more quickly than holes in stratospheric ozone (which are often caused by human activity), isolated proton auroras still influence changes in the atmosphere.

                                        The Billionaire who Thinks He’s ‘God’:

                                        The name “George Soros” is typically preceded by the words “billionaire philanthropist.” But there’s a problem.

                                        Philanthropists donate money and property to needy individuals and institutions for the purpose of advancing human welfare, security and happiness.  For decades, however, Hungarian-born leftwing “billionaire philanthropist” George Soros has supported, advocated and bankrolled everything rotten, subversive, destructive, hateful and evil.  Currently, Soros’ name is most often heard in conjunction with radically pro-criminal district attorneys across America.

                                        He also wants to legalize drugs, he supports euthanasia, and he funds Black Lives Matter. He is for socialism and globalism and open borders and “defunding the police.” He’s for devaluing America’s currency – once telling the Financial Times that “an orderly decline of the dollar is actually desirable” – even though that amounts to an outright theft of Americans’ life savings and investments. He favors the destruction of American sovereignty in favor of “global governance.” He doesn’t like Israel and has supported her enemies. He detests truthful news coverage and funds organizations that daily attack the only free press America currently has.

                                        Soros admits he wants to re-create the world in his image – like a god. That characterization is not opinion, hyperbole or rhetorical flourish: Living out his “messianic fantasies” and openly likening himself to a “some kind of god” is precisely how George Soros – ironically, an atheist and self-hating Jew – describes himself in his more candid moments.

                                        When the British online newspaper The Independent asked Soros to explain these extraordinary statements, he responded: “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.”

                                        “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad,” Soros said on British television. “In fact, my grandfather was actually paranoid. I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”  Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only has George Soros succumbed to a form of total madness, but he’s imposing his insanity on the United States of America.

                                        After all, his motto for changing society is simply, “If I spend enough, I will make it right.” Combine that with his proclamation in his 1995 book, “Soros on Soros” – “I do not accept the rules imposed by others. … And in periods of regime change, the normal rules don’t apply” – and you have a formula for truly epic madness and societal destruction, imposed on hundreds of millions of people, by a super-wealthy atheist who thinks he’s God.

                                          Court rules in Franklin Graham discrimination case:

                                          A Scottish event center discriminated against Franklin Graham and an event planned by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association when it arbitrarily canceled a valid contract to use the building, according to a new court ruling.

                                          The BGEA revealed that the Glasgow Sheriff Court, through Sheriff John McCormick, ruled that the cancelation of an event that had been booked by the BGEA in the SSE Hydro of the Scottish Event Campus for 2020 was because of opposition to the Christian views that would be expressed.  McCormick’s ruling said, “The concern is expressed that there is the potential for Mr. Graham to make homophobic and Islamophobic comments. I found no evidence to that effect.”

                                          He identified the real problem: “The defender’s true problem with the pursuer arises as a result of the religious views of Franklin Graham, which it has sought to categorize by wrenching selected comments made in the past whilst conveniently ignoring contrary comments also made by Franklin Graham.”

                                          The dispute arose at a time when the BGEA was arranging a number of events across the United Kingdom to share the Christian message. The plans infuriated the nation’s pro-LGBT activists who argued that any message but their own should be suppressed.

                                            The scary sound of Earth’s magnetic field, from the European Space Agency:

                                            Despite being essential to life on Earth, the magnetic field isn’t something we can actually see in itself, or ever hear. But, remarkably, scientists at the Technical University of Denmark have taken magnetic signals measured by ESA’s Swarm satellite mission and converted them into sound – and for something that protects us, the result is pretty scary.

                                            Click to hear the sounds.

                                                Well Patricia, I listened for a time with my best earphones and concluded that those sound must have come via Rumble because the Right proved louder.  Besides that, there was a lot of scratchy slimy pinko sounds evident on the Left.  I was facing northward and live in North America so presume the Left sounds came from the West.

                                                I know I distinctly heard “Squidward,” not too far in.

                                                Yet color me skeptical, because in the vacuum of space up there, where the ESA Swarm satellites roam, there is no sound heard.  No air, no sound!  Same as with all my vacuums not running — no sound.

                                                If one might want their own low cost / low bit rate Internet-of-Things SWARM satellite receivers, go to https://swarm.space/  Yet beware dabbling there since you will note that globalists are the masterminds.  Yes!  You’ll find headlined at that link, “Global Affordable Connectivity.”

                                                Besides that, it’s likely about the underworld as well since about SWARM, Wikipedia notes (among other things): “The results offer a view of the inside of the Earth from space…”  Revelation 9:2-3 describes swarms of locust originating from a bottomless pit, right?  Yeah, so why did the European Space Agency name it “SWARM?”  Think about it.  Maybe all that clicking, rumbling, and crackling sound in the audio is what those locusts down there actually sound like waiting to emerge!

                                                Thanks Patricia, for highlighting something unusual, brand new, and interesting.  Maybe too if I play the scary locust sounds at the door next Monday, perhaps enough kids will run away, leaving me to enjoy more Snickers, Milky Way’s and Mr Goodbar’s.  On yes!  Maybe Special Dark too!

                                                We’ll see.

                                                  Last time I saw these was in the 1980’s … I did a double take the other day when our local grocery store finally displayed them on their shelf. But they are in a tiny bag marked $5.00 😳.   They need to knock off $2.00 to justify buying them so I’m waiting patiently and just torture myself every time I go into that store and just stare at them. 😵‍💫

                                                    Cool find, Patricia. The thing that stood out to me was “the Technical University of Denmark have taken magnetic signals measured by ESA’s Swarm satellite mission and converted them into sound “. Being a musician, I have a nice recording studio set up in my basement and have experimented and played around with sound conversion. The misleading part of this story is that they converted signals to sound. That means this is not the actual sound of the magnetic field but simply the interpretation of the signals. They could take the readings off of a seismograph and do the same thing but that doesn’t mean that the sound you hear is actually the sound of an earthquake. Still, I downloaded the sound file and will play around with it and maybe find some use for it. :mail:

                                                      Nolte: Layoffs Hit Far-Left CNN as Primetime Viewership Collapses:

                                                      CNN, a far-left propaganda outlet that denies election results and encourages violence in predominantly black neighborhoods, will be hit with massive layoffs before the end of the year.

                                                      Per a statement released Wednesday from CNN chief Chris Licht — the left-wing extremist behind Stephen Colbert’s failing late-night show — the fake news outlet is facing “noticeable change. … That, by definition, is unsettling. These changes will not be easy because they will affect people, budgets, and projects.”

                                                      Gee, I wonder why that is…?

                                                      Even with a hotly contested and consequential national election less than two weeks away, CNN — which is more commonly called “CNNLOL”. . . — has been earning humiliating ratings.  During the week of October 17, CNNLOL managed to attract an average of only 512,000 total primetime viewers.

                                                      Here are the overall numbers during that week for context purposes:

                                                      TOTAL PRIMETIME VIEWERS

                                                      FOX: 2.3 million
                                                      MSNBC: 1.12 million
                                                      CNN: 512,000
                                                      Fox News is beating CNN times four.

                                                      CNN makes money off advertising and pay-TV subscriber fees. But as millions of Americans cancel traditional pay TV each year in favor of streaming services, CNN almost certainly can’t raise subscription rates at a fast enough clip to make up for declining viewer numbers.

                                                        If You Liked Big Brother, Meet Google’s Big MUM:
                                                        Forget Big Brother, Big MUM is Google’s new tool for suppressing conservatives…

                                                        MUM or Multitask Unified Model was hyped last year as the company’s new machine learning algorithm. MUM had been initially described as an innovative way to allow Google’s dying search service to answer natural language questions by drawing on multiple sources.

                                                        While MUM’s applications initially appeared to be apolitical, that quickly changed.

                                                        Google first unleashed MUM to fight what it considered COVID “misinformation” by making sure that everyone saw “high quality and timely information from trusted health authorities like the World Health Organization”. By reducing the number of sources to only those that agree with its agenda, Google is able to deliver fast results while getting rid of different points of view.

                                                        A Forbes article described how MUM would “check information across multiple reliable sources” to allow “the system to come to a general consensus.” Google had once built its search around the vast diversity of a bygone internet, but it has spent the last decade draining the diversity and depth of the pool and replacing it with the shallow manufactured consensus of its agenda.

                                                        Google long ago ceased being a way to find different answers and its search results are deliberately repetitive. Search is an illusion. The user thinks that he’s browsing the internet when he’s actually spinning his wheels in Google’s walled garden. This is most obvious in shopping and in politics: two areas where Google has strong interests and tries to manipulate users into believing that they are exploring options when they’re being hand-fed variations on a theme.

                                                        Or as Pandu Nayak, VP of search at Google, wrote in a recent post, “By using our latest AI model, Multitask Unified Model (MUM), our systems can now understand the notion of consensus, which is when multiple high-quality sources on the web all agree on the same fact.”

                                                        The last thing the world needs is another centralized computer system enforcing a consensus.

                                                        And sometimes Google wants to give you the information before you ask it.  If you own an advanced Android phone, you may find that Google Assistant will interrupt conversations to offer its own “insights.”

                                                        Google is also pursuing “prebunking” of what it considers “misinformation” with preemptive propaganda campaigns.

                                                        Google’s YouTube already has a broad set of bans covering everything from questioning global warming, contradicting medical experts, and debating 2020 election results. These are a window into the company’s political agendas and how it seeks to enforce political conformity.

                                                        As the midterm elections approach, YouTube spokeswoman Ivy Choi, promised that the video site’s recommendations are “continuously and prominently surfacing midterms-related content from authoritative news sources and limiting the spread of harmful midterms-related misinformation.” The technical term for this is mass propaganda. That’s what Big Tech does.

                                                        MUM is yet another tool for enforcing a totalitarian conformity on the diversity of the internet.  Google doesn’t want you to think differently or to think for yourself. What it wants users to do is to shut up and listen to Big MUM.

                                                          Elon Musk purchased Twitter for $54.20 per share – or about $44 billion.  “Twitter CEO Parag Agrawal and finance chief Ned Segal have left the company’s San Francisco headquarters and will not be returning, sources said.” – According to CNBC.  Vijaya Gadde was also fired on Thursday.

                                                          Musk has been at Twitter’s San Francisco headquarters this week, meeting with workers and holding impromptu discussions with them in the cafe, Insider reported. An all-hands meeting is expected to take place on Friday.

                                                          Recall, Vijaya Gadde, an immigrant from India who hates the First Amendment, was behind the censorship of conservatives and Trump supporters.  Vijaya Gadde was responsible for the censorship and banning policies at Twitter. She is famous for this and apparently took great pride in it.  In her role she allowed the Ayatollah of Iran to promote hate speech on the platform but she took down the account of the leader of the free world, President Donald Trump.

                                                                  Executives from Facebook and Twitter, including the recently-fired head of trust & safety Vijaya Gadde, held regular meetings with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to discuss censorship on a wide range of topics, including the withdrawal from Afghanistan, coronavirus, and “racial justice,” according to leaked documents.

                                                                  The information came to light via leaks to the Intercept, as well as documents and minutes revealed through Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt’s lawsuit filed against the Biden Administration that alleges government collusion with Big Tech to suppress Americans’ First Amendment rights.

                                                                  In the runup to the 2020 election, the consortium created a system whereby state actors including the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department could file “tickets” alongside news stories, flagging them so that Big Tech platforms could subsequently suppress or attach warning labels to them.

                                                                  https://www.breitbart.com/tech/2022/10/31/report-twitter-and-facebook-had-regular-meetings-with-dhs-on-censoring-americans/

                                                                    North Korea went on an unexpected rampage Wednesday, launching 23 ballistic missiles and over a hundred artillery shells in the direction of South Korea.

                                                                    One of the missiles came down about 35 miles from the South Korean city of Sokcho – the first time a North Korean missile has impacted south of the maritime border known as the Northern Limit Line.

                                                                    “Our military can never tolerate this kind of North Korea’s provocative act, and will strictly and firmly respond under close South Korea-U.S. cooperation,” the South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said in a statement on Wednesday.

                                                                    The JCS called the missile salvo “very unprecedented,” noting North Korea has never launched so many missiles in a single day. The missile that landed near Sokcho also threatened the island of Uleung, whose residents scrambled into shelters after air raid warnings were sounded.

                                                                    North Korea was once more lashing out against U.S.-South Korean military drills, in this case, a five-day combined aerial exercise called Vigilant Storm that began on Monday.

                                                                    Pyongyang on Tuesday announced that such “rashness and provocation can no longer be tolerated,” and hinted it was prepared to use nuclear weapons to make America and South Korea “pay the most horrible price in history” if the drills continue.

                                                                    https://www.breitbart.com/asia/2022/11/02/north-korea-launches-unprecedented-barrage-of-23-missiles-over-100-artillery-shells/

                                                                      “Oh yes. I know it’s a fact because I’ve spoken to important people who are about to come out and whistleblow on it…”

                                                                      Are we alone in the universe? Is there life elsewhere? We don’t really have enough information at present to answer these questions, but we could be close to finding out.

                                                                      How? Thanks to a subject that was considered nothing more than a conspiracy a few years ago.

                                                                      The Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon has changed the way we think about life in the universe.  All of a sudden, it seems very likely that we have been visited by beings, not from Earth, and some experts may even prove it.

                                                                      “The government cover-up is a fact because I’ve spoken to the people about exposing it, Stanford professor Dr. Garry Nolan said.”

                                                                      On August 21, the Australian channel 7News premiered an interview with Ross Coulthart and Dr. Nolan.

                                                                      Among the guests was Dr. Garry Nolan, an immunologist at Stanford, who recently stepped into the ufological arena after claiming to have analyzed alleged UFO remains. As we reported not long ago, during an interview with Tucker Carlson Today, Dr. Nolan discussed his thoughts on the Unidentified Aerospace-Underwater Phenomena (UAPs) and whether or not the government possesses technology that originated from another planet. In addition, Dr. Nolan discussed his experiences working with the government and analyzing and studying people who came too close to UFOs.

                                                                      He stated during the interview that individuals involved in the recovery of UFO debris and subsequent secret government programs would soon come forward to reveal what they know, putting an end to one of the biggest cover-ups in modern history.

                                                                      When you say that the government has been involved in a cover-up, do you think they’ve been hiding it all this time?” Coulthart asked.

                                                                      “Oh yes. I know it’s a fact because I’ve spoken to important people who are about to come out and whistleblow on it,” Nolan replied.

                                                                      “And there has been an active cover-up. Just look at what the Department of Defense (DoD) recently announced. They announced an office to study the phenomenon. Putting money aside, they say they will start the study from 1947.”

                                                                      “Which is incredible. That’s the date of Roswell,” the interviewer said.

                                                                      “Yes, 1947. And we want a list of every operation they did to misinform the public,” Nolan said.

                                                                      NASA has recently stated it has already begun the study of UFOs, dedicating a special team in order to do so.  The Pentagon recently rebranded its UFO office, adding to its list of studies on so-called transmedium UFOs.

                                                                        With the homelessness crisis cited among their top concerns, Oregon voters are taking note of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s declaration of a “humanitarian catastrophe” in the state’s largest city.

                                                                        Oregon has among the highest homeless populations per capita in the nation. According to DHM Research, nine out of 10 voters statewide identify homelessness as a “very big problem” as Election Day draws near.

                                                                        In the Portland metropolitan area alone, an estimated 6,000 people are experiencing homelessness, according to an annual census of the unhoused.

                                                                        Portland Commissioner Dan Ryan described homelessness as the city’s “No. 1 problem” and painted a bleak picture of its impact during the meeting.  He described disturbing trends in the city.  “Declining enrollment in Portland Public Schools means families are moving away,” Ryan said.  Population growth is flat.

                                                                        “People are not choosing Portland as their home as often as they used to,” he said. “Portlanders report they don’t feel safe allowing their children to access our parks. Elders don’t feel safe strolling along the riverfront or simply walking to the local grocery store.  “Portland businesses with a long history in the city have closed because their employees don’t feel safe doing their jobs, walking to lunch, or commuting on public transportation.

                                                                        In May, Wheeler banned camping on the sides of “high-crash” roadways after learning that 19 of 27 pedestrians killed by cars in Portland in 2021 were homeless.  “Nearly 800 unsanctioned encampments spread out over the 146 square miles of the City of Portland,” Wheeler said. “Something needs to change.”

                                                                        In a recent poll conducted by The Oregonian, nearly 75 percent of Portland voters said the city is “on the wrong track.”  And 81 percent believe that the 2020 George Floyd protests and more than 100 days of unchecked riots, even as Wheeler announced the defunding of police by $12 million, harmed the city.

                                                                        https://www.theepochtimes.com/portland-facing-homelessness-catastrophe-according-to-city-mayor_4831176.html?utm_source=partner&utm_campaign=ZeroHedge&src_src=partner&src_cmp=ZeroHedge

                                                                          Defined as people aged 13-24, Gen Z were more likely to believe that people should be “canceled” for their views and held less acceptance of different opinions than older generations.

                                                                          For its study, Channel 4 drew from a survey of 1,500 people.  Channel 4 Chief Executive Alex Mahon noted in a speech on Tuesday about the study that it documented the rise of what she described as “young, illiberal progressives” (YIPs).

                                                                          Mahon added that a “quarter of Gen Z say they ‘have very little tolerance for people with beliefs that they disagree with.’ They don’t believe in unrestrained free speech, with nearly half agreeing that ‘some people deserve to be canceled.’”

                                                                                North Korea’s record-breaking single-day barrage of more than 20 missiles cost the impoverished country more than U.S. $70 million, or as much as it spent importing rice from China in 2019 to try to cover grain shortages that year, experts told Radio Free Asia.

                                                                                The short-range missiles fired on Wednesday likely cost between $2 million to $3 million each, Bruce Bennett, an adjunct international defense researcher at the California-based RAND Corporation, told RFA’s Korean Service.  “You’re talking about something between $50 and $75 million,” he said.

                                                                                “So every missile that he launches,” Maxwell said, “takes food from the mouth of the Korean people in the North.”

                                                                                North Korea’s missile splurge cost $70 million – more than a year of imported rice

                                                                                We come to Sinai in a movement of repentance and quest bring to together leaders from the world’s major religions to put forth a prophetic interreligious call to action with ‘Climate Justice: Ten Universal Commandments.’ Behold, Chrislam!

                                                                                Chrislam has positioned itself to be the driving religious force of our day, combined leaders from all the world’s religions under the banner of the Vatican, and it is everywhere you look. Chrislam is the basis on which the Abraham Accords were created, brought to life by the same person who sold Pope Francis’ Declaration of Human Fraternity to the Muslim world back in 2019. Now at the UN COP27 climate conference in Sinai, Egypt later this month, Chrislam will again take center stage as interfaith leaders unveil their ‘Climate Justice: Ten Universal Commandments’ and repent of their climate sins to Mother Earth.

                                                                                At this point, if you can’t see what’s happening, if you can’t see that the actual, literal One World Religion of Chrislam is, in fact, alive and growing in strength and power on a daily basis, I really don’t know what else to tell you. What we are seeing right now is what, back in the 1990’s when I first got saved, we imagined Bible prophecy would look like when it began to be fulfilled. You are not waiting for it in 2022, you are watching it come together before your very eyes.

                                                                                  Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has apparently scrapped plans to look at moving Britain’s embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, despite previously claiming to support its recognition.

                                                                                  Back after World War I, England lost their status as a world superpower by betraying the Jews in what is known as the Balfour Declaration. In a nutshell, they promised to create a homeland for the Jews in Palestine and reneged on their promise. Just this week, newly-elected Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, who had promised to move the British embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, showing recognition for Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, reversed course and now has refused to do it. Why? Because Rishi Sunak does not believe that Jerusalem is part of Israel, regardless of any previous statements he may have made.

                                                                                  As we told you this afternoon on our Friday Prophecy News Podcast, the Middle East is a beehive of end times activity, and the stage has been set for the soon arrival of Antichrist. Benjamin Netanyahu has been returned to power in a miraculous turn of events, and the table appears to be nearly set for the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. What does all this mean? It means that the Pretribulation Rapture of the Church, a doctrine no longer preached in hardly any Christian church, is mere moments away. The last Baptist church I was a part of didn’t preach one sermon on the Rapture, rightly dividing, or dispensational truth, and your church probably hasn’t either. That’s why we’re here, to stand in the gap and give you the Bible, so you can know just how close we really are. And guess what? We are closer than you could possibly imagine.

                                                                                      European industries including ferroalloys, fertilizer plants, and specialty chemicals are shutting down as a result of the ongoing energy crisis.  Certain industries may not come back, even if the energy crisis eases.
                                                                                      An increasingly tight regulatory environment is another reason for de-industrialization in Europe.

                                                                                      Yet the cause for celebration is dubious: businesses are not just curbing their energy use and continuing on a business-as-usual basis. They are shutting down factories, downsizing, or relocating. Europe may well be on the way to deindustrialization.

                                                                                      Some of these businesses might choose to eventually relocate to a place with cheaper and more widely available sources of energy, contributing to the deindustrialization process in Europe.

They mean doing double mastectomies on young girls. They mean chemically-castrating young boys. That is wrong. We are not going to allow that to happen in the state of Florida.”

                                                                                            Republican challenger Mike Lawler accused Maloney of being “hopelessly out of touch with Hudson Valley families struggling to put food on the table.”  “He may think it’s funny to tell families to live on Chef Boyardee, but in reality it’s tragic. The food and energy inflation Mr. Maloney caused in Washington is leaving families scared, hungry, and cold,” he said.

                                                                                              In one Arizona town, residential wells are running dry as a huge farm owned by a Saudi company pumps water to its alfalfa crops. But those crops will only be shipped to feed cows in the Middle East, where water is also growing scarce, CNN reported.

                                                                                              Water-intensive crops like alfalfa and hay have already been banned in Saudi Arabia as the country runs dry. But sprawling dairy farms are a point of national pride in the Middle East, so those countries are getting their water overseas, according to CNN.

It now totals nearly 3 percent of all privately held agricultural land in the U.S., mostly in the country’s south and west, according to a 2020 U.S. Department of Agriculture report.  While an expert told CNN it’s illegal to export water from Arizona, it can be “virtually” exported by using it in that state and shipping away the produce.

                                                                                              Kris Mayes, a Democratic candidate for Arizona attorney general, promised to cancel the Saudi company’s leases if elected, after a newspaper investigation found it is improperly leasing the land at a discounted rate. But she also seemed to disagree with the concept of the deal.

                                                                                              “We are essentially giving our water away for free to a Saudi corporation, and that has to come to an end,” Mayes said.

                                                                                              Foreign companies taking US water from drought-stricken Southwest

                                                                                                BAGHDAD, Iraq (AFP) — It was the river that is said to have watered the biblical Garden of Eden and helped give birth to civilization itself.  But today the Tigris is dying.

                                                                                                Human activity and climate change have choked its once mighty flow through Iraq, where — with its twin river the Euphrates — it made Mesopotamia a cradle of civilization thousands of years ago.

                                                                                                The Tigris, the lifeline connecting the storied cities of Mosul, Baghdad and Basra, has been choked by dams, most of them upstream in Turkey, and decreasing rainfall.  Baghdad regularly asks Ankara to release more water.

                                                                                                But Turkey’s ambassador to Iraq, Ali Riza Guney, urged Iraq to “use the available water more efficiently,” tweeting in July that “water is largely wasted in Iraq.”  He may have a point, say experts. Iraqi farmers tend to flood their fields, as they have done since ancient Sumerian times, rather than irrigate them, resulting in huge water losses.

                                                                                                This year authorities have been forced to reduce Iraq’s cultivated areas by half, meaning no crops will be grown in the badly-hit Diyala Governorate.  “We will be forced to give up farming and sell our animals,” said Abu Mehdi.

                                                                                                But another threat is impacting the Shatt al-Arab: salt water from the Gulf is pushing ever further upstream as the river flow declines.

                                                                                                  The Chinese delegation to the COP27 climate change conference in Egypt demanded a leadership role on Tuesday, despite China being far and away the worst polluter in the world, and its most voracious consumer of carbon-spewing coal power.

                                                                                                  China takes a back seat to no one when it comes to digging, importing, and burning coal and its coal consumption has only increased while Communist officials speak of cutting back someday. In September, the Chinese launched a new rail line to haul even more coal from Mongolia, along with other mineral resources. Beijing makes no secret of its intention to increase carbon emissions for at least a decade to come, after which the usually irascible climate change movement has been remarkably trusting that the authoritarian regime will snap its fingers and become instantaneously “carbon neutral.”

                                                                                                  From a political and ideological standpoint, climate activists are increasingly clear about their antipathy to capitalism, because they believe only authoritarian governments can force their citizens to make the sacrifices needed to hit zero emissions, so crowning China leader of the movement would make a good deal of sense.

                                                                                                    CNBC reports that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently announced in a letter to employees that the company would be laying off 13 percent of its staff, or more than 11,000 employees.

                                                                                                    In his letter to employees, Zuckerberg stated: “I want to take accountability for these decisions and for how we got here. I know this is tough for everyone, and I’m especially sorry to those impacted.”

                                                                                                    At the start of Covid, the world rapidly moved online and the surge of e-commerce led to outsized revenue growth. Many people predicted this would be a permanent acceleration that would continue even after the pandemic ended. I did too, so I made the decision to significantly increase our investments. Unfortunately, this did not play out the way I expected. Not only has online commerce returned to prior trends, but the macroeconomic downturn, increased competition, and ads signal loss have caused our revenue to be much lower than I’d expected. I got this wrong, and I take responsibility for that.

                                                                                                          Up to $2 billion is ‘missing’ after FTX collapsed this week.  The company filed for bankruptcy on Friday and Sam Bankman-Fried’s private jet was seen en route to Argentina.

                                                                                                          Sam Bankman-Fried is Biden’s second biggest donor [after George Soros].  And now Janet Yellen is calling for Crypto to be regulated.  “It shows the weaknesses of this entire sector,” Yellen told Bloomberg News on Saturday.

                                                                                                          FTX also happens to be related to Ukraine.

                                                                                                            As often happens with large retail chains of any kind, Walgreens decided to close three Boston locations this week. The pharmacy chain’s explanation for the closures implied that it did not make financial sense for the company to keep the locations open, blaming the “dynamics of the local market and changes in the buying habits of our patients.”

                                                                                                            Now, however, the Boston city council has responded to complaints from local residents by attempting to bully Walgreens into keeping the three locations open, whether they are profitable or not. Two members of the Boston City Council have filed a resolution that would block Walgreens from opening any new locations in the city anywhere unless they halt the closure of these three stores.

                                                                                                            Showing no indication that the council understands that the purpose of a retail location is to make a profit, Worrell also suggested that Walgreens should operate to provide a public service whether it makes money or not.

                                                                                                              Marla Maples tells PEOPLE, adding that the family chose the venue because “this was Tiffany’s childhood home and where she was brought into the world.”

                                                                                                              “Tiffany has never been a people divider,” a social source adds, noting that all of the Trumps were in attendance. “This is a joyous family occasion.”

                                                                                                                  In Spain, a law passed Monday means offices, stores and hospitality venues will no longer be allowed to set their thermostats below 27C (81F) even during the height of summer, nor raise them above 19C in the depths of winter.

                                                                                                                  You would be forgiven for thinking the end times were approaching, or that WWIII had broken out; but no, this is an entirely self-inflicted blow, one rooted in the establishment’s transparent and absurd ruse to ‘save the planet.’

                                                                                                                  How have we allowed this to happen? Why were European governments content to hand their energy security over to a foreign superpower? Who are the geniuses that thought passing their carbon emission ‘buck’ to Russia would ever reduce atmospheric levels of said trace gas? Who thought wind and solar were ready to replace coal and gas? There is ZERO accountability.

                                                                                                                  The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING in line with historically low solar activity. . . .

                                                                                                                    Earlier this week, we saw the first trans winner of the Miss Greater Derry beauty pageant, a news story the woke liberal media celebrated as some “milestone” of inclusivity.

                                                                                                                    Brían Nguyen became the first biological male to win a title under the Miss America Organization – The Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Program provides scholarships to “young women” between the ages of 17 and 24.

                                                                                                                    I won the Miss Great Britain competition in 1998, and aside from all the glitz and glamour on the surface, it involved a lot of time and effort. Seeing the news that Brían Nguyen won the pageant made me think how I would feel if I was beaten by a large biological male after spending months training and preparing for the contest. Winning the competition opened up a world of opportunities to me, a result of being allowed to fairly compete in an era absent of woke ideology. Sadly these young women today are not being given the same chance.

                                                                                                                    Allowing a transgender-identifying biological male to win a contest without merit hardly gives young women opportunities; if anything, it is indoctrinating them into a perverted idea of what female beauty is, blurring the lines of societal markers which sets precedents for decline rather than growth.

                                                                                                                    Over the past two years, we’ve seen biological males compete against women in female sports tournaments, with the unfair advantage of, well, being a man.

                                                                                                                    But what’s different with this beauty pageant is Brían Nguyen did not have any advantages; apart from being an overweight transgender-identifying individual, a far cry from what society would have once classed as a ‘natural beauty.’

                                                                                                                    Why The First Biological Male Winning ‘Miss Greater Derry’ Insults Women Everywhere

                                                                                                                      The world’s largest online retailer, Amazon, will begin laying off 10,000 employees in corporate and technology roles beginning this week, according to a report from The New York Times.

                                                                                                                      According to the report, the layoffs would be the largest in Amazon’s history and would have a massive effect on the company’s devices unit – including the voice-assistant Alexa, as well as the retail division, and human resources departments.

                                                                                                                      Amazon’s planned retrenchment during the critical holiday shopping season — when the company typically has valued stability — shows how quickly the souring global economy has put pressure on it to trim businesses that have been overstaffed or underdelivering for years.

                                                                                                                      Amazon would also become the latest technology company to lay off workers, which only recently it had been fighting to retain. Earlier this year, the e-commerce giant more than doubled the cap on cash compensation for its tech workers, citing “a particularly competitive labor market.”
                                                                                                                      Amazon is the latest company that has announced widespread layoffs in preparation for a possible economic collapse.

                                                                                                                      Bidenomics: Amazon to Fire 10,000 Employees as Early as This Week

                                                                                                                        Father John Bok is still trying to understand how he narrowly escaped danger while on his way to Mass in Milford, Ohio.

                                                                                                                        “It’s a miracle,” the priest told the Catholic News Agency (CNA) earlier this month.

                                                                                                                        The incident happened October 2 as he was driving to Mass for the Feast of the Guardian Angels when a fellow driver experienced a seizure and blacked out.  The SUV drove off the road, rammed into a few obstacles, then sailed over Bok’s white car without leaving a single scratch.

                                                                                                                        Video footage showed the black SUV smack into a pole and go airborne as the other vehicle continued on down the road as if nothing happened.

By what laws of physics did it lift the boy’s car almost 5 feet in the air and send it over my car? So many questions.”

                                                                                                                        “I am certainly thankful to God. I will continue to wonder how much God and how much the laws of science played in the experience. And I continue to be amused by the fact that I was oblivious to what happened until I saw the video in the restaurant. As always, God is good,” he concluded.

                                                                                                                              SEOUL, Nov 19 (Reuters) – North Korean leader Kim Jong Un revealed his daughter to the world for the first time on Saturday in striking photos showing the pair hand-in-hand inspecting the launch of the nuclear-armed country’s largest ballistic missile the day before.

                                                                                                                              North Korea test-fired a Hwasong-17 intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) on Friday, state news agency KCNA reported on Saturday.

                                                                                                                              The biggest surprise, however, was the presence of Kim’s daughter, whose existence had never been publicly confirmed before.

                                                                                                                              KCNA did not name the girl, who is seen in photographs in a white puffy coat holding hands with her father as they look at the massive missile.

                                                                                                                              “This is the first observed occasion where we have seen Kim Jong Un’s daughter at a public event” Michael Madden, a North Korea leadership expert at the U.S.-based Stimson Center. “It is highly significant and represents a certain degree of comfort on Kim Jong Un’s part that he would bring her out in public in such fashion.”

                                                                                                                              Kim is believed to have as many as three children, two girls and a boy, experts said.  In 2013 retired American basketball star Dennis Rodman said Kim had a “baby” daughter named Ju Ae. After a trip to North Korea that year, Rodman told The Guardian newspaper he had spent time with Kim and his family, and held the baby.

                                                                                                                              Ju Ae is estimated to be about 12-13 years of age which means that in about four to five years she will be preparing to attend university, or go into military service, Madden said.

                                                                                                                              Kim’s wife, Ri Sol Ju, also made a rare appearance at Friday’s launch, according to KCNA.  “Whenever Ri Sol Ju appears, there is strategic messaging involved. Normally designed to tamp down tensions, counter other aggressive messaging (like tests), or show Kim family cohesion in times of internal troubles,” said Ken Gause, a North Korea leadership expert with CNA, a U.S.-based non-profit research organization.

The study says previous studies that claimed there was a link between red meat consumption and health issues are based on “weak evidence.”

                                                                                                                                Researchers at the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) released a study titled: “Health effects associated with consumption of unprocessed red meat: a Burden of Proof study.” The paper was published in Nature journal in October.

                                                                                                                                The scientists declared, “We found weak evidence of association between unprocessed red meat consumption and colorectal cancer, breast cancer, type 2 diabetes, and ischemic heart disease. Moreover, we found no evidence of an association between unprocessed red meat and ischemic stroke or hemorrhagic stroke.”

                                                                                                                                “The evidence for a direct vascular or heath risk from eating meat regularly is very low, to the point that there is probably no risk.”  He noted that there is a health risk of “eating too few vegetables.”

                                                                                                                                  “In total, approximately 12,000 gallons of water was utilized. To give you an idea of the severity, crews can normally extinguish a fully involved vehicle fire with approximately 500 gallons or less,” the fire company said in a Facebook post. “Due to the lithium-ion battery on the vehicle, extinguishing this fire would require additional tankers as the vehicle would continue to reignite and burn fierce at times. In total it took crews nearly two hours of continually applying water on the vehicle as the battery would begin to reignite and hold high temperatures,” the post noted. “This vehicle burnt so hot and long that if it was not for the rims you might not even know it was a vehicle.”

                                                                                                                                  WTAJ reported that a couple that had been in the Tesla Model S was not harmed.

                                                                                                                                        The EU hopes that video games can be used to help with “raising awareness” of climate and environmental issues.

                                                                                                                                        That’s another way of saying that young people who are turned off by boring lectures are far more likely to be influenced by propaganda masquerading as an exciting game.”

                                                                                                                                          The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) ‘correct’ data they don’t like, and ‘fail to archive the evidence’ — they are frauds in the eyes of many.

                                                                                                                                          Former top NOAA scientist, Dr. John Bates, led the agency’s climate data records program for ten years.

                                                                                                                                          Since his time at the agency, however, Bates has spoken of data tampering and serious malfeasance; specifically, he accuses NOAA of publishing a flawed report which supposedly disproved the pause observed in global warming between 1998 to 2012.

                                                                                                                                          That widely observed pause in global warming simply wasn’t to be accepted by the AGW Party, and, in turn, NOAA’s climate data office was tasked with challenging the IPCC findings and prove that the hiatus did not exist. That was their aim, by hook or by crook, disappear that pesky pause, and do it in time for that crucial climate meeting in Paris.

                                                                                                                                          It didn’t take NOAA’s Tom Karl very long at all to ‘develop’ a way to artificially raise sea-temperatures. Karl did this by discarding readings collected by buoys, which are more accurate, and replaced them with the temperature readings collected by ships, which are found to be warmer.

                                                                                                                                          Bates felt compelled to call out the study’s major, and to him glaring, problems.

                                                                                                                                          “They had good data from buoys,” he said. “And they threw it out and ‘corrected’ it by using the bad data from ships [a natural warming source]. You never change good data to agree with the bad, but that’s what they did so as to make it look as if the sea was warmer.”

                                                                                                                                          And as if things couldn’t sound any more shady, the computer used to process the data “suffered a complete failure,” meaning that none of the data had been archived or made available as required by NOAA rules. Therefore, Karl’s paper can’t be replicated or independently verified.

                                                                                                                                          THIS is what the alarmists are insistent is ‘settled’, is unquestionably going to lead to our species demise, and so requires suicidal slashings of cheap and reliable fossil fuel usage and the introduction of crippling carbon taxes to combat.

                                                                                                                                          THIS is insanity, particularly given that the opposite climatic reality is likely fast-approaching:  “The next 30 years will be Cold,” Says Climate Scientist Dr Willie Soon.

                                                                                                                                            Twitter was a great tool for sharing news quickly but it was damaged greatly by the previous management running the platform who were far-left radicals.

                                                                                                                                            Twitter’s management began censoring conservatives before the 2016 Election and went full-blast anti-conservative after President Trump won the election.

                                                                                                                                            Although President Trump became arguably the greatest Twitter user in history, the company de-platformed him and numerous other conservatives by early 2021.  The President and most conservative platforms were eliminated from Twitter for good until Musk recently took over.

                                                                                                                                            Elon Musk confirmed yesterday that Twitter had an extreme bias against conservatives.  Musk tweeted in a response to Kyle Becker about Twitter’s bias:  As is obvious to all but the media, there is not one permanent ban on even the most far-left account spouting utter lies.

                                                                                                                                            Musk just confirmed what we have known for years.  Twitter gives lying liberal lunatics a pass but targets conservatives mercilessly.

Just ask Jamal Hinton and Wanda Dench, total strangers who met seven years ago after a text message seeking Thanksgiving plans went wrong.

                                                                                                                                              On Tuesday, Nov. 22, Hinton shared a photo standing beside Dench outside a Cheesecake Factory restaurant, revealing the two accidental friends are carrying on their viral tradition that began totally by chance.

                                                                                                                                              It all started like this.  In 2016, Dench, from Mesa, Az., accidentally sent a text to Hinton, telling the then 17-year-old that Thanksgiving dinner was at her house on Nov. 24 at 3 p.m.  It was meant for her grandson, who had changed his phone number. Instead, Hinton got the message while sitting in class at Desert Vista High School.

                                                                                                                                              When the teen asked who sent it, Dench replied, “Your grandma,” with an elderly woman emoji.
                                                                                                                                              Hinton wrote back, asking for a photo to prove the number really belonged to his grandmother.
                                                                                                                                              After she sends a selfie image of herself at work, he replies with a photo of his face and a text saying she’s not his grandma.

                                                                                                                                              “Can I still get a plate tho?” Hinton gently suggested.

                                                                                                                                              “Of course, you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone,” she replied with a piece of cake emoji, and so the pair have continued to this day.

                                                                                                                                              Hinton had told his social media followers last week the two would be celebrating the day together again.

                                                                                                                                              “I would have missed out on a wonderful relationship,” Dench said, when asked what would have happened if she hadn’t invited Hinton over years ago. “I’ve changed my view so much on the younger generation, and now that I’ve reflected back on all these years, I didn’t change their life; they changed mine.”

                                                                                                                                                (Guest post by Leo Hohmann)

                                                                                                                                                Aman Jabbi is a native of India and an engineer who worked in Silicon Valley for 25 years, co-inventor of two cellphone camera apps. He emigrated to the United States in 1988 because he admired America’s culture of liberty and ingenuity.  Jabbi now lives in Big Fork, Montana, and has become, in my opinion, one of the most important whistleblowers and voices of warning about the coming beast system.

                                                                                                                                                All we have to do is say no. Reject the tools of our enslavement that are offered on a shiny silver platter that looks so enticing.  We must recognize that these are the very same tools and products that make our busy 21st-century lives so convenient, so efficient, and entertaining. And so we buy them on cue, we upgrade them on cue, we hand over our biometric data on cue, until one day we will wake up and realize we have convenienced ourselves and entertained ourselves right into a digital gulag from which there is no escape.

                                                                                                                                                This is how the globalists intend on breaking the backs of free Americans. They will do it through our finances, through the healthcare system, and through the entertainment systems. Digital ID cards disguised as “health passports” or “SMART Health Cards,” will be required to work a job, to access the Internet, and the coming digital bank accounts or digital wallets. The convergence of all these systems will make sure, in the words of U.N. Agenda 2030, “no person gets left behind.”

                                                                                                                                                What Jabbi is describing in the above video (at link) is an extremely invasive technology being set up in SMART Cities – from license-plate readers to SMART Lights and SMART Poles to SMART cars and SMART neighborhoods, SMART homes and SMART appliances – all connected to 5G and wirelessly communicating with each other.

                                                                                                                                                OUR STREETS ARE SPYING ON US:  All major intersections in a SMART City have digital surveillance cameras. Pay attention to interstate highways, which are also now being outfitted with this technology. These cameras will be capable of logging the license plates of every car that passes by in real-time.  Cameras and listening devices are going up everywhere, in large, medium, and even smaller cities.

                                                                                                                                                OUR CELLPHONES ARE SPYING ON US:  Your cellphone is listening to you as well. And many of the newest phones are capable of tracking your eye movements on the screen.  “They’re listening in, they’re watching, they’re analyzing . . . ”

                                                                                                                                                OUR APPLIANCES ARE SPYING ON US:  If you have one of the newer models of refrigerators that digitally tracks your fridge’s inventory, all that data is being logged for future use against you. Eating too much meat and dairy? Your social credit score just got lowered a notch because the globalists don’t like us eating meat. It’s not “sustainable,” in their vision for the world.

                                                                                                                                                OUR CARS ARE SPYING ON US:  By 2025, Jabbi said every new car will have a minimum of 16 cameras, all digitally connected and feeding information via the internet.  Driving too much outside of your home base adding unnecessarily to your carbon footprint? That’s a waste of gasoline and your social credit score just ticked down another notch.

                                                                                                                                                OUR BANKS ARE SPYING ON US:  This is just a warm-up for when they launch the new digital money . . .

                                                                                                                                                OUR DIGITAL THERMOSTATS ARE SPYING ON US:  Remember how that worked out in Colorado this summer, when people enrolled in a “voluntary” temperature monitoring program suddenly lost all control over their home thermostats.

                                                                                                                                                The infrastructure for a lockdown police state is already in place.

                                                                                                                                                      As President Biden continues to pour billions of dollars into “renewable” energy while curbing U.S. oil and natural gas production, Europe’s green transition has come to an emergency halt.

                                                                                                                                                      Germany and other nations are reopening coal plants and rationing energy to avoid winter blackouts, as former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson reports in her upcoming episode of “Full Measure.”

                                                                                                                                                      Last month, veteran international journalist Michael Yon warned that the European energy crisis – which he attributed to the globalist agenda to rapidly transition from oil and natural gas to green energy – will lead to famine and freezing across the continent.

                                                                                                                                                      In August, a survey found that with energy bills set to spike by 80% in October, nearly one-quarter of adults in Britain said they would not turn on their heating this winter.

                                                                                                                                                      Michael Shellenberger, an energy expert and founder of the group Environmental Progress, told FOX Business in an interview in September.  “You have people that are openly demanding to do more of the same things that actually made the crisis possible,” he said.

                                                                                                                                                      “That’s what you’re seeing. They’re saying, ‘let’s go do more unreliable energy.’ It’s a sign of a disturbed person that keeps engaging in irrational activities that are obviously self-destructive, and that we’re seeing that behavior at a mass level.”

                                                                                                                                                      Shellenberger said Europe should be “a warning to the U.S. that we should not go down their path.”
