No. I don't know what is going on with the 'Israel' thing.

  said:


No.  I don't know what is going on with the 'Israel' thing. 

There are multiple pieces moving of the 'Israel' thing ---  all the pieces are twisted,

and, in my view, the worst twist coming up will be evangelical and other  religious factions

insisting upon some certain view held of prophecy.

Obama,  Nutenyayhoo, Trump, Kerry, new u.s. ambassador to Israel, the u.n.

and what does all that have to do with Russian assassinations and the downed Russian plane? 


Secretary of State John Kerry has been working on the text of the Resolution at the UN, formally recognizing the "State of Palestine" and it will use the 1967 Israel Border to establish Palestine's physical boundaries. SuperStation95 has learned from our UN sources here in New York that the Resolution will contain an authorization for the use of force to compel Israeli compliance, and will be introduced (and voted on) before Barack Obama leaves office.

The Arab-Israeli conflict has gone on for decades and sources in the UN say the Security Council is "fed-up" with the stalemate. Sources confirm there is a consensus among Security Council members that only an outside force can bring the situation to an end. The inclusion of a use-of-force element to the resolution is described as "a necessary evil given the parties involved."

A Nervous White House Issues Warning to Trump “Only One President at a Time”

Breaking News By Amy Moreno December 26, 2016

The White House is taking a great deal of heat over their decision to backstab Israel during a United Nations resolution vote.

Before the vote, Donald Trump called on Obama to VETO the resolution, but instead, Obama abstained from the vote, which then enabled the resolution to label Israel’s buildings in the West Bank as “illegal” to succeed.

The White House is now rejecting President-elect Trump’s criticism and warning him that there is only “one president at a time.”

From Washington Examiner:

In a briefing on the move Friday, Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser, said, “On the president-elect, the first thing I’d just say is that there’s one president at a time. President Obama is the president of the United States until Jan. 20, and we are taking this action, of course, as U.S. policy.”

Trump had tweeted his concern about the move at the United Nations that the U.S. did not disavow.

“As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th,” Trump tweeted.
Rhodes also said of Israel, “I believe that despite what has at times been very strident Israeli government criticism of U.S. policies that President Obama has always made Israel and its security sacrosanct in his approach to these issues.

Donald Trump’s pick for ambassador to Israel, has all sides on edge
Posted on December 26, 2016 by Angel - NYC

ABC News

If President-elect Donald Trump wanted to show he planned to obliterate President Barack Obama’s approach to Israel, he may have found his man to deliver that message in David Friedman, his pick for U.S. ambassador.

The bankruptcy lawyer and son of an Orthodox rabbi is everything Obama is not: a fervent supporter of Israeli settlements, opponent of Palestinian statehood and unrelenting defender of Israel’s government. So far to the right is Friedman that even many Israel supporters worry he could push Israel’s hawkish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be more extreme, scuttling prospects for peace with Palestinians in the process.

The heated debate over Friedman’s selection is playing out just as fresh tensions erupt between the U.S. and Israel, punctuated last Friday by the Obama administration’s stunning move to allow a U.N. Security Council resolution to pass condemning Israeli settlements as illegal. The move to abstain, rather than veto, defied years of U.S. tradition of shielding Israel from such resolutions, and elicited angry condemnation from Israel, lawmakers of both parties, and especially Trump.

“Things will be different after Jan. 20th,” when he’s sworn in, Trump vowed on Twitter.

Friedman, certainly, is different.

Presidents of both parties have long called for a two-state solution that envisions eventual Palestinian statehood, and Netanyahu says he agrees. Friedman does not. He’s called the two-state solution a mere “narrative” that must end.

Under Obama, the U.S. has worked closely with J Street, an Israel advocacy group sharply critical of Netanyahu. Not Friedman. He accuses Obama of “blatant anti-Semitism” and calls J Street “worse than kapos,” a reference to Jews who helped the Nazis imprison fellow Jews during the Holocaust.

For decades the U.S. has opposed Israeli settlement-building in lands it seized in the 1967 Mideast War. Friedman runs a nonprofit that raises millions of dollars for Beit El, a settlement of religious nationalists near Ramallah. Beit El runs a right-wing news oulet and a yeshiva whose dean has provocatively urged Israeli soldiers to refuse orders to uproot settlers from their homes.

So it’s unsurprising that Friedman’s nomination has already sharpened the borders of a growing balkanization of American Jews, between those who want the U.S. to push Israel toward peace and those who believe Obama’s approach abandoned America’s closest Mideast ally.

It’s a debate playing out even at Temple Hillel, near the Long Island-Queens border, where Friedman’s father was rabbi for almost half a century.

“Clearly, David’s opinions do not appeal to everybody in the synagogue, and they appeal to others in the synagogue,” said Ken Fink, the synagogue’s president and longtime congregant. “But there’s a huge amount of pride for the hometown boy.”

Thirty-two years before Trump’s election, President Ronald Reagan donned a yarmulke and noshed on chicken cutlets and noodle pudding at Rabbi Morris Friedman’s home, after a speech at Temple Hillel affirming the separation between church and state. Coming just two weeks before Reagan’s re-election, the attempt to woo Jewish voters struck some as opportunistic, and they protested on the streets of the heavily Jewish town of North Woodmere.

Seated at the Sabbath table with Reagan was David Melech Friedman — his middle name means “king” in Hebrew. The rabbi’s son went on to become Trump’s bankruptcy lawyer, a vocal advocate for far-right policies on Israel, and now, Trump’s choice for ambassador, despite having no diplomatic experience.

In announcing his pick, Trump pointed out that Friedman’s bar mitzvah 45 years ago was at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, where Friedman now owns a home. Though his father was an Orthodox rabbi, the synagogue belongs to the more moderate Conservative denomination, making the Friedmans more observant than many of the congregants.

Cindy Grosz, who said she’d known Friedman for nearly 50 years, recalled big parties with boisterous debates about Jewish issues held in his family’s sukkah, the outdoor hut Jews build during the harvest festival Sukkot.

“He still has the same best friends he’s had for over 30 years. That hasn’t changed,” Grosz said.

At his midtown Manhattan law firm, Friedman opens up his offices to those in mourning who need a minyan — a quorum of 10 men in Orthodox Judaism — to say the Mourner’s Kaddish, a prayer observant Jews say daily for one year after a parent’s death.

And it was a parent’s death, in a way, that brought Friedman and Trump closer together. Over the years, Friedman has told friends the story of how the billionaire real estate mogul defied an oppressive snowstorm that had kept others away to “sit shiva” for Friedman’s father during the Jewish mourning period.

Educated at Columbia University and NYU School of Law, Friedman developed a reputation as an aggressive, high-stakes bankruptcy attorney, representing Trump when his Atlantic City casinos went through bankruptcy.

In the courtroom, he’s known as a formidable opponent, said attorney Tariq Mundiya, Friedman’s adversary in several cases. He said he’d been aware of Friedman’s advocacy on Israel but added, “When you’re in the fog of war with David, the last thing you’re talking about is the Middle East.”

If confirmed, Friedman is expected to be the face of Trump’s dramatic shift in posture. While Obama’s relationship with Netanyahu was famously fraught, Friedman has said Trump will take his cues from Israel’s wishes.

Both Friedman and Trump are particularly focused on moving the U.S. Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, breaking with decades of U.S. reluctance to acknowledge Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in light of Palestinians’ claim to east Jerusalem.

Enraged by Trump’s pick, left-leaning groups and Palestinian officials have suggested his confirmation could spell the end of any serious discussions about peace.

Friedman and Trump’s transition team didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Netanyahu has stayed publicly quiet about Trump’s pick. But individuals close to the prime minister said he was pleased with the appointment because he knows Friedman has a direct line to Trump. The individuals weren’t authorized to comment by name and requested anonymity.

Israel - Pakistan Nuclear Threat Prompted by Fake News

(TEL AVIV) The Pakistani defense minister threatened Israel with nuclear war on Twitter, apparently responding to information from a site known for peddling out-of-this-world conspiracy theories.

Pakistani Minister of Defense Khawaja Muhammad Asif tweeted a thinly-veiled threat towards Israel on Friday, “reminding” it that Pakistan is a nuclear power that will strike back if attacked.

Khawaja M. Asif ✔@khawajamasif

Israeli def min threatens nuclear retaliation presuming pak role in Syria against Daesh.Israel forgets Pakistan is a Nuclear state too AH

Asif appeared to be reacting to an article from the website AWD, which claimed that Moshe Ya'alon, the Israeli defense minister, threatened to use nuclear weapons on Pakistan if the country sent troops into Syria.

“As far as we are concerned, that is a threat, if, by misfortune, they arrive in Syria, we will know what to do, we will destroy them with a nuclear attack,” Ya'alon said in a presumed AWD exclusive.

There are but two problems with the news story. First, Ya'alon left the post of Israeli defense minister back in May.

And second, he never said it, according to the defense ministry's prompt reaction.

Ministry of Defense @israel_MOD

@khawajamasif The statement attributed to fmr Def Min Yaalon re Pakistan was never said



Ministry of Defense @israel_MOD

@khawajamasif reports referred to by the Pakistani Def Min are entirely false



AWD itself could not seem to get its story straight, referring to Ya'alon as both “Israeli defense minister” and “the former Israeli Defence Minister” in the article.

Asif, however, apparently chose to be (arguably) safe rather than sorry, and issued his warning to Israel regardless.

The Israeli Ministry of Defense was quick to react to Asif’s statement, pointing out it was based on false information.

Neither country has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and both Israel and Pakistan are considered to be nuclear powers. Israel is widely thought to have had the atom bomb since the 1960s, though it has never publicly admitted it.

Pakistan, meanwhile, developed its own nuclear arsenal in response to India's, and indeed, Khawaja Muhammad Asif had already threatened to nuke India back in September.

Diplomatic relations between the two countries are non-existent: as a Muslim country strongly opposed to the Jewish state, Pakistan does not even recognize Israel, though dialogue does take place through third parties. Although there used to be a small Jewish community in Pakistan, mainly concentrated around Karachi, it gradually disappeared as anti-Israel and anti-Semitic sentiments became more widespread.

AWD News has been described as “extremely dubious”, which analyzed one of its articles claiming King Abdullah of Jordan murdered his wife, Queen Rania (who is alive and well).

A quick glance around the site also reveals that Vladimir Putin is dead and Russia is planning an attack on Saudi Arabia, among other things.

After supper on Christmas eve when the dishes were cleared, Mike and Jenne and I sat at the kitchen table and opened our gifts.

A memory came up in conversation, about a Christmas Eve blizzard years ago.
Mike's grandparents hadn't been able to return to their own homes in town because of the storm.
The boys had given up their beds to the elders, and Mike and his brothers had slept on the floor by the stove.

Shadows fall long, shadows fall long.....

And twenty-five years is not a long shadow to fall.

It is well within the living memory of the people of Russia.

The people of Russia remember  ‘A Story of Crushing Tyranny and Oceans of Blood’ 
www.breitbart.com/london/2016/12/23/the-soviet-union-25-years-on-a-story-of-crushing-tyranny-and-oceans-of-blood/

 (previous article) 

The American people have no idea what the shoot-down of the Christmas plane means
but the  people of Russia remember all too well.

December 24, 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the formal end of the Soviet Union

 
 The American people knew very little about any of this.  And , what little they did know, they understood even less.
 
December 24, 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the formal end of the Soviet Union as a political entity on the map of the world. A quarter of a century ago, the curtain was lowered on the 75-year experiment in “building socialism” in the country where it all began following the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia, led by Vladimir Lenin in November 1917.

Some historians have estimated that as many as 200 million people worldwide may have died as part of the 20th century dream of creating a collectivist “paradise on earth.” The attempt to establish a comprehensive socialist system in many parts of the world over the last 100 years has been one of the cruelest and most brutal episodes in human history. Making a new “better world” was taken to mean the extermination, liquidation, and mass murder of all those who the socialist revolutionary leaders declared to be “class enemies,” including the families and even the children of “enemies of the people.”

The Bloody Road to Making a New Socialist Man

The evil of the Soviet system is that it was cruelty for a purpose. It has been calculated by Russian and Western historians who had limited access to the secret archives of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union and the KGB (the Soviet secret police) in the 1990s that as many as 68 million innocent, unarmed men, women, and children may have been killed in Soviet Russia alone over those nearly 75 years of communist rule in the Soviet Union.

A purpose. To make a new Soviet man and a new Soviet society. This required the destruction of everything that had gone before and entailed the forced creation of a new civilization, as conjured up in the minds of those who had appointed themselves the creators of this brave new world.

In the minds of those like Felix Dzerzhinsky, Lenin’s close associate and founder of the Soviet secret police, violence was an act of love. So much did they love the vision of the blissful communist future to come that they were willing to sacrifice all the traditional conceptions of humanity and morality to bring their utopia to fruition.
People applaud 17 November 1989 in Warsaw as the 15m (49ft) statue of Felix Dzerzhinsky, the founder of Cheka, the first Soviet's secret service, is taken down. The statue had stood in a square named after Dzerzhinsky in downtown Warsaw since 1945. This was the latest of several statues of former communist leaders to be removed here since a non-communist government came to power in September 1989.

Thus, in a publication issued in 1919 by the newly formed Soviet secret police, the Cheka (later the NKVD and then the KGB), it was proclaimed:

We reject the old systems of morality and ‘humanity’ invented by the bourgeoisie to oppress and exploit the ‘lower classes.’ Our morality has no precedent, and our humanity is absolute because it rests on a new ideal. Our aim is to destroy all forms of oppression and violence. To so, everything is permitted, for we are the first to raise the sword not to oppress races and reduce them to slavery, but to liberate humanity from its shackles …

Blood? Let blood flow like water! Let blood stain forever the black pirate’s flag flown by the bourgeoisie, and let our flag be blood-red forever! For only through the death of the old world can we liberate ourselves from the return of those jackals.

Death and Torture as Tools of Winning Socialism

The famous sociologist Pitirim A. Sorokin was a young professor in Petrograd (later Leningrad, and now St. Petersburg) in 1920, as the Russian Civil War that firmly established communist rule in Russia was coming to its end. He kept an account of daily life during those years, which he published many years later under the title Leaves from a Russian Diary – and Thirty Years After (1950).

Here is one of his entries from 1920:

The machine of the Red Terror works incessantly. Every day and every night, in Petrograd, Moscow, and all over the country the mountain of the dead grows higher … Everywhere people are shot, mutilated, wiped out of existence …

Every night we hear the rattle of trucks bearing new victims. Every night we hear the rifle fire of executions, and often some of us hear from the ditches, where the bodies are flung, faint groans and cries of those who did not die at once under the guns. People living near these places begin to move away. They cannot sleep …

Getting up in the morning, no man or woman knows whether he will be free that night. Leaving one’s home, one never knows whether he will return. Sometimes a neighborhood is surrounded and everyone caught out of his house without a certificate is arrested … Life these days depends entirely on luck.

This murderous madness never ended. In the 1930s, during the time of the Great Purges instituted by Soviet dictator Josef Stalin to wipe out all “enemies of the revolution” through mass executions, millions were sent to the Gulag prisons that stretched across all of the Soviet Union to be worked to death as slave labor to “build socialism.”

Before being sent to their deaths or to the forced labor camps, tens of thousands would be interrogated and cruelly tortured for confessions of non-existent crimes, imaginary anti-Soviet conspiracies, and false accusations against others.

Stalin personally sent instructions to the Soviet secret police that stated that to obtain confessions from the accused, “the NKVD was given permission by the Central Committee [of the Communist Party] to use physical influence … as a completely correct and expedient method” of interrogation.

When Stalin was told that this method was bringing forth the desired results, he told the NKVD interrogators, “Give them the works until they come crawling to you on their bellies with confessions in their teeth.” Then, in another purge, this one after World War II, Stalin simplified the instructions even more: “Beat, beat and, once again, beat.”

Thousands of the victims wrote letters to Stalin from their exile and hardships in the labor camps, all of them were persuaded that it had all been a terrible mistake. If only the great and good Comrade Stalin knew, he would set it all right and they would be freed and restored as good, loyal Soviet citizens ready to once again work to “build socialism.”

Stalin’s Personal Hand in Building Socialism through Blood

But Stalin knew. He personally signed off on tens of thousands of death warrants and orders for tens of thousands more to be sent to their horrifying fates in the Gulag camps.

Dmitri Volkogonov, a Soviet general-turned-historian, gained access to many of the closed Soviet archives in the 1980s and wrote a biography of Stalin, titled Triumph and Tragedy (1991), meaning Stalin’s “triumph” to power and the resulting “tragedy” for the Soviet people. Volkogonov told a Western correspondent at the time:

I would come home from working in Stalin’s archives, and I would be deeply shaken. I remember coming home after reading through the day of December 12, 1938. He signed thirty lists of death sentences that day, altogether about five thousand people, including many he personally knew, his friends …

This is not what shook me. It turned out that, having signed these documents, he went to his personal theater very late that night and watched two movies, including “Happy Guys,” a popular comedy of the time. I simply could not understand how, after deciding the fate of several thousand lives, he could watch such a movie.

But I was beginning to realize that morality plays no role for dictators. That’s when I understood why my father was shot, why my mother died in exile, why millions of people died.

Soviet central planning even had quotas for the number of such enemies of the people to be killed in each region of the Soviet Union, as well as the required numbers to be rounded up to be sent to work in the labor camps in the frigid wastelands of the Siberia and the Arctic Circle or the scorching deserts of Soviet Central Asia.

A Russian lawyer who had access to some of the formerly closed Soviet archives of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in the 1990s said at the time:

Recently I read a Central Committee document from 1937 that said the Voronezh secret police, according to the ‘regional plan,’ repressed in the ‘first category,’ nine thousand people – which means these people were executed. And for no reason, of course.

Twenty-nine thousand were repressed in the ‘second category – meaning they were sent to labor camps. The local first secretary [of the Communist Party], however, writes that there are still more Trotskyites and kulaks who remain ‘unrepressed.’

He is saying that the plan was fulfilled but the plan was not enough! And so he asked that it be increased by eight thousand. Stalin writes back, ‘No increase to nine thousand!’ The sickness of it. Its’ as if they were playing poking [and upping the ante in tragic human lives].

The Victims of Socialism Literally Reduced to Burnt Ash

In the last years of the Soviet Union, a Russian historian took Washington Post correspondent David Remnick to the Donskoi Monastery in Moscow, which was used in the 1930s as a burial ground for the thousands regularly killed on Stalin’s orders in the capital of the Red Empire.

In his book Lenin’s Tomb: The Last Days of the Soviet Empire (1993), Remnick told what the Russian historian explained:

See this gate? … Well, every night trucks stacked with bodies came back here and dumped them in a heap. They’d already been shot in the back of the head – you bleed less that way … They stacked the bodies in old wooden ammunition crates.

The workers stoked up the underground ovens – right in through the doors – to about twelve thousand degrees centigrade. To make things nice and official they even had professional witnesses who counter-signed the various documents.

When the bodies were burned they were reduced to ash and some chips of bone, maybe some teeth. They then buried the ashes in a pit … When the purges [of the 1930s] were at their peak … the furnaces worked all night and the domes of the churches were covered with ash. There was a fine dust of ash on the snow.

The Kalitnikovsky Cemetery in Moscow also served as a dumping ground for thousands of tortured and executed bodies in the 1930s.

That same Russian historian told Remnick:

In the purges, every dog in town came to this place. That smell you smell now was three times as bad; blood was in the air. People would lean out of their windows and puke all night and the dogs howled until dawn. Sometimes they’d find a dog with an arm or a leg walking through the graveyard.

Enemies of Socialism Sent to Torture in the Mental Ward

The nightmare of the socialist experiment, however, did not end with Stalin’s death in 1953. Its form merely changed in later decades. As head of the KGB in the 1970s, Yuri Andropov (who later was General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union after Leonid Brezhnev’s death in 1982), accepted a new theory in Soviet psychiatry which said opposition to the socialist regime was a sign of mental illness.

Why? Because only the mentally disturbed would resist the logic and the truth of Marxian dialectical determinism and its “proof” that socialism and communism were the highest and most humane stage of social development. Those who criticized the system or wanted to reform or overthrow the Soviet socialist regime were mentally sick and required psychiatric treatment.

In his book Russia and the Russians (1984), former Moscow bureau chief for the Washington Post Kevin Klose told the story of Alexei Nikitin, a coal mine worker who complained to the Soviet government about the safety and health environment in the mines of the Soviet Union. He was arrested, tried, and found guilty of subversion and committed to a Soviet mental institution.

Various drugs were prescribed as a treatment to bring him to his proper socialist senses. Explained Kevin Klose:

Of all the drugs administered [at the mental institution] to impose discipline, sulfazine stood at the pinnacle of pain … ‘People injected with sulfazine were groaning, sighing with pain, cursing the psychiatrists and Soviet power, cursing with everything in their hearts,’ Alexei told us. ‘The people go into horrible convulsions and get completely disoriented. The body temperature rises to 40 degrees centigrade [104 degrees Fahrenheit] almost instantly, and the pain is so intense they cannot move from their beds for three days. Sulfazine is simply a way to destroy a man completely. If they torture you and break your arms, there is a certain specific pain and you somehow can stand it. But sulfazine is like a drill boring into your body that gets worse and worse until it’s more than you can stand. It’s impossible to endure. It is worse than torture, because, sometimes, torture may end. But this kind of torture may continue for years.’

Sulfazine normally was ‘prescribed’ in a ‘course’ of injections of increasing strength over a period that might last up to two months … The doctors had many other drugs with which to control and punish. Most of them eventually were used on Alexei … At the end of two months, Nikitin was taken off sulfazine but regular doses of … other disorienting drugs continued the entire time he was imprisoned.

The significance of these accounts is not their uniqueness but, rather, their monotonous repetition in every country in which socialism was imposed upon a society. In country after country, death, destruction, and privation followed in the wake of socialism’s triumph. Socialism’s history is a story of crushing tyranny and oceans of blood.

Socialism as the Ideology of Death and Destruction

As the Soviet mathematician and dissident Igor Shafarevich, who spent many years in the Gulag slave labor camps for his opposition to the communist regime, said in his book The Socialist Phenomenon (1980):

Most socialist doctrines and movements are literally saturated with the mood of death, catastrophe, and destruction … One could regard the death of mankind as the final result to which the development of socialism leads.

That 20th-century socialism would lead to nothing but this outcome was understood at the time of the Bolshevik victory in Russia. It was clearly expressed by the greatest intellectual opponent of socialism during the last 100 years, the Austrian economist, Ludwig von Mises.

Near the end of his famous 1922 treatise Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis, Mises warned:

Socialism is not in the least what is pretends to be. It is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created. It does not build, it destroys. For destruction is the essence of it. It produces nothing, it only consumes what the social order based on private ownership in the means production has created … Each step leading towards Socialism must exhaust itself in the destruction of what already exists.

When voices are once again heard calling for socialism – even by a recent candidate for the Democratic Party nomination for U.S. President or on university campuses around the country – it is important, no, it is crucial, that the history and reality of socialism-in-practice in those parts of the world where it was most thoroughly imposed and implemented, as in the Soviet Union, be remembered and fully understood.

If we do not, well, history has its own ways of repeating itself.

Disguised behind seemingly endless geo-political rhetoric about pipelines, off-shore drilling, fracking, OPEC meetings, carbon foot-prints, global warming and so on,  World War Three hides its ugly face from the public. 

World War Three enacted thus is really the Great War of Islam against Christians, facilitated and masterminded by all those evil ones parading down the halls of History under Globalism's banner. 

The recent Nuclear Tweets of Putin and Trump do not signal re-upping the old cold war arms race at all.  Rather the Nuclear Tweets signal a unity of purpose shared by these two Christian leaders standing together on the same side of the fence, with regard to  Nuke Rogues --Pakistani, Israeli, Islamic State--

JS has had quite a bit to say lately, about gasoline shortages in Mexico.  This is not being mentioned much elsewhere,
but Dave Hodges provides confirmation of sorts, and connects some dots. 

Why Obama Has Shut Off Oil to Mexico

Russia is a Christian nation....

Mike was standing by the door, in a clean dry jacket.

I said, "Are you ready to go?" 

He nodded.  "She's still fixing her hair or something."

I said, "Don't forget the cheese tray."

I took the cheese tray out of the fridge and put it on the counter near him by the door.

The wait went on a little longer.

"Somebody shot down a Russian plane," I said.  "Ninety-one people on board."

"Russia prolly shot it down themselves," Mike said, half-joking. He has watched many Cold War movies, so he knew about things like this.
"Or maybe it coulda been just an accident?"

I said, "No, honey, Russia didn't shoot down their own plane on Christmas Day. It was a military plane with the Russian Army Choir onboard, going to Syria to preform a Christmas concert.

"This is about the war in Syria; there are many players involved in the war in Syria.  Iran is a player....  Turkey.....  NATO.....  Obama..... Islam....Russia is a Christian nation...."

It has been twenty-five years since the Fall of the Wall.  The world was taken by surprise when, during the night of November 9, 1989, crowds of Germans began dismantling the Berlin Wall—a barrier that for almost 30 years had symbolized the Cold War division of Europe. By October 1990, Germany was reunified, triggering the swift collapse of the other East European regimes. 

Americans still largely think of Russia as being still communist USSR.  Americans find it difficult to know that today Russia is Christian.

Russian military Tu-154 aircraft disappears from radar after take-off in Sochi

Published time: 25 Dec, 2016 04:35

"According to preliminary data, a Russian Defense Ministry Tu-154 disappeared from radar screens after departing from Sochi," a source in the country's Emergencies Ministry told RIA Novosti earlier.

Nine journalists along with musicians from the army choir of the Russian Armed Forces, the Alexandrov Ensemble, were aboard the plane, the ministry confirmed. The musicians were due to take part in a New Year's concert at the Russian airbase in Latakia, Syria.

“Alexandrov Ensemble singers made up the majority of the missing passengers of the Tu-154,” a defense source told RIA, adding that 90 members of the choir were supposed to be flown to Syria on two Russian military planes.

Christmas Eve

Friday, December 23, 2016

This is the December 23rd Trump transition press update reported through TRUNEWS Correspondent Edward Szall

(VERO BEACH, FL) Jason Miller, the new White House operations communications director, and Sean Spicer, Donald Trump’s freshly announced White House Press Secretary, have canceled all press briefings until Wednesday December 28th, but based on tweets and press releases over the last 24 hours we have plenty to share today.

We are 28 days out from the inauguration of Donald J. Trump, and the President-elect is not taking a Christmas pause in the formation of his Make America Great Again cabinet.

Yesterday, president-elect Donald Trump announced that RNC spokesman Sean Spicer will be the next White House Press Secretary. Donald Trump also named Hope Hicks to head strategic communications, spokesman Jason Miller to run operational communications, and Dan Scavino to serve as his director of social media.

President-elect Trump said:

“Sean, Hope, Jason and Dan have been key members of my team during the campaign and transition. I am excited they will be leading the team that will communicate my agenda that will Make America Great Again.”

INAUGURATION

Donald Trump tweeted this morning:


Donald J. Trump Verified account
‏@realdonaldtrump

The so-called "A" list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!


Based on this tweet its fair to assume that the many Hollywood stars who supported Hillary Clinton up until Election Day, and even advocated for a political coup as part of the Faithless Hamilton Elector movement, will not be attending the President-elect’s events in DC starting Thursday January 19th.

On this subject, Tom Barrack, the Chairman of the Presidential Inaugural Committee said Wednesday:

“The monuments themselves are the draw. When you think about walking from Lincoln to Washington, that is the moment. It’s not orientated around ‘let’s take Spotify and give you everything we can give you’…this inauguration is not about that kind of entertainment. Does he need the celebrities and want the celebrities? Of course, but they’re all going to weigh in when they find the judiciousness of the man [once he’s in office].”

Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli had been rumored as a possible performer, and even Donald Trump himself claimed in early December that the legendary singer offered to perform at the event. A man close to the President-elect confirmed a rumor that Mr. Bocelli is indebted to DonaldTrump, who once lent him a plane and previously was hired in 2010 to play at a private Trump event.

Though according to this following quote Donald Trump has relieved Mr. Bocelli of his offer, and said:

“'You don't need to. We're not in that kind of a framework. Thanks very much for the offer. You're my friend. You are always welcome at the White House.”

SCHEDULE FOR THE DAY

This morning, soon to be White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Donald Trump has an appointment to tee-off with a notable golfer Tiger Woods at the Trump International course in West Palm Beach, Florida. Multiple transition sources have confirmed Mr. Woods requested the meeting, but did not elude to the subject of conversation.
JET BLUE INCIDENT

On Thursday morning, the President-elect’s daughter Ivanka Trump, 35, was harassed by a gay couple on a flight out of New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. Ivanka was traveling with her husband and three children at the time of the incident, and the disorderly passenger, later identified as Daniel Goldstein, was promptly ejected from the flight.

According to another passenger, Daniel Goldstein told Ivanka, “Your father is ruining the country!”

Goldstein continued, “Why is she on our flight? She should be riding private,” adding as he was removed “You’re kicking me off for expressing my opinion?”

According to another passenger who witnessed the exchange, Ivanka Trump ignored the man and distracted her children with crayons before he was escorted off.

According to the ever active Twitter community, Goldstein’s partner, Matt Glassner, a Professor at City University of New York, and a lawyer, reportedly tweeted his male companions intent an hour or so before the event took place.

Matt Glassner tweeted the following:

“Ivanka and Jared at JFK T5, flying commercial. My husband chasing them down to harass them. #banalityofevil”


Based on available reports, TRUNEWS yesterday erroneously reported that Matt Glassner himself harassed Ivanka Trump, but what have since learned of the real culprit. Even though his role was smaller than first thought, the fact still stands that Mr. Glassner promptly deleted his twitter account after the incident, possibly because as a CUNY professor, he works for the city of New York, and as a public servant his actions can be perceived to represent New York Mayor Bill DeBlasio.

Can you imagine what Democrats and Left leaning Independents would say if this happened to the Obama or Clinton family?
CHINA FUMES OVER NAVARRO

Thurday’s appointment of Dr. Peter Navarro has the Chinese up in arms. Dr. Navarro, a Harvard-trained economist, is best known for authoring books such as “Death by China”, and “Crouching Tiger: What China’s Militarism Means for the World”, the subject which TRUNEWS host Pastor Rick Wiles interviewed Mr. Navarro on back in November 2015.

The China Daily published a scathing op-ED Friday morning, translated in English so Americans could read their position.

In the editorial, The China Daily wrote:

”That individuals such as Navarro who have a bias against China are being picked to work in leading positions in the next administration is no laughing matter. The new administration should bear in mind that with economic and trade ties between the world's two largest economies now the closest they have ever been, any move to damage the win-win relationship will only result in a loss for both sides."

Shen Danyang, the spokesman for China’s ministry of commerce added today:

"Regardless of what changes happen in the U.S. government - president, commerce secretary, trade representative - common interests (between the United States and China) are greater than differences. We oppose the idea of making others take medicine when oneself is sick. This has happened in the past and could happen in the future.”

Lastly, the Global Times, an influential tabloid published by the ruling Communist Party's official People's Daily, took their shot also.

In this mornings edition, they wrote:

”China needs to face up to the reality that the Trump team maintains a hard-line attitude toward China. It must discard any illusions and make full preparations for any offensive move by the Trump government. "China is powerful enough to withstand pressures from the Trump government. Beijing will get used to the tensions between the two countries. If Washington dares to provoke China over its core interests, Beijing won't fear setting up a showdown with the U.S., pressuring the latter to pay respect to China."


ERIC TRUMP CHARITY CONTROVERSY

Yesterday we mentioned that Eric Trump publicly disassociated himself with the Open Call charity event which was set to be held on January 21st 2017. Erick Trump commented Wednesday that it pained him to cease soliciting donations for his organization, which he says has raised more than $15 million for children terminally ill with cancer.

Erick Trump said to press:

"Fighting childhood cancer is a cause that has been central to my life since I was 21 years old. It's an extremely sad day when doing the right thing isn't the right thing. That said, raising awareness for the cause will be a lifelong mission for me."

This decision followed vehement criticism from both the press and Leftist politicians, who called the continuing association a clear conflict of interest.

Donald Trump responded today to his son recusing himself from philanthropy efforts, tweeting:

“My wonderful son, Eric, will no longer be allowed to raise money for children with cancer because of a possible conflict of interest with my presidency. Isn't this a ridiculous shame? He loves these kids, has raised millions of dollars for them, and now must stop. Wrong answer!”

MILITARY FRONT

Last night Donald Trump stirred the internet into a proverbial tizzy with the following tweet:

Donald J. Trump

@realdonaldtrump

Based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the Lockheed Martin F-35, I have asked Boeing to price-out a comparable F-18 Super Hornet!
4:26 PM - 22 Dec 2016

This tweet represents a strategy which would inject competition into a historically no bid environment for military contracts and equipment purchases. Donald Trump hosted the CEO’s of Boeing and Lockheed Martin on Wednesday at the Mar-a-Lago to discuss a plan moving forward to Make America’s Military Great Again.

This message added to already building uproar over Donald Trump’s Make American Nukes Great Again tweet yesterday afternoon:

Donald Trump tweeted Thursday:

Donald J. Trump Verified account
‏@realdonaldtrump

The United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes

While on the campaign trail, Donald Trump addressed the issue of our aging nuclear arsenal, saying:

“The equipment is not properly maintained. There is a lot of talk about that. And that's a bad thing not a good thing. The last person to use nuclear would be Donald Trump. The thought of it is horrible. But I don't want to take anything off the table."

Former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani added today that Donald Trump plans to strengthen the military, includes modernizing weaponry and building upwards of 250 new naval ships. Based on previous comments, the President-elect plans to use these ships to maintain America’s sphere of influence in the Asia trade zone, especially as China continues to flex’s its regional muscle.

Rudy Giuliani also said today that he is open to working unofficially for Donald Trump, but will likely stay outside the cabinet due to his work with New York based international law firm Greenberg Traurig, which he serves as a Senior Advisor to Greenberg Traurig’s Executive Chairman and as the Chair of the Cybersecurity, Privacy and Crisis Management Practice.

At 11:12 AM EST, TRUNEWS received a latter from the Trump transition team, sent to the President-elect from Russian President Vladimir Putin on December 15th 2016.

Here’s the translated letter:
 

In response to the warming letter, Donald Trump said in the press release:

“A very nice letter from Vladimir Putin; his thoughts are so correct. I hope both sides are able to live up to these thoughts, and we do not have to travel an alternate path."

On a funny note, Vladimir Putin delivered an icy roasting of the Democratic Party today as part of his end of year speech to the Russian people.

Vladimir Putin said:

”The current administration and the leadership of the Democratic Party are trying to blame all their failures on external factors. (We are talking about) a party which has clearly forgotten the original meaning of its own name.”

Putin also, accused the Democrats of "shamelessly" abusing their status as the ruling party to try to influence public opinion, adding:

“Outstanding figures in American history from the ranks of the Democratic Party would likely be turning in their graves. Roosevelt certainly would be.”

Regarding Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin told his citizens Friday:

“He had his finger on the pulse of U.S. society, and launched a scathing attack on the Democrats, saying they had forgotten the meaning of their own name and were sore losers. Only Russia had believed that Trump would become the next president of the United States, but that did not mean the Democrats had the right to blame him for their defeat.”

The next TRUNEWS Trump transition press update will be at 11:30 EST on Monday January 2nd, 2017, questions and feedback is greatly encouraged. God Bless, and Merry Christmas!

Descent Into Madness

 Obama- In the last days- Social Studies

Descent Into Madness
There is a point at which the globalist snowflakes cross from legitimate political activism to criminal activity and perhaps even constituting a criminal organization. That line was crossed when George Soros began funding Black Lives Matter, who continued to call for the death of law enforcement officers. Up until January 20, they will have been protected by the Attorney General, but that is all likely to change. Prosecutorial discretion only goes so far, before it becomes part of the conspiracy to commit criminal acts.


The criminal activity of the Obama Administration has gone so far that there is no way to go through a house-cleaning without a massive societal upheaval. Understanding that any action to put the rule of law back into effect will be accompanied by riots and violence, it is a dark passage. A dark passage that would not have been as severe had the globalist Republicans taken their oaths with any degree of sincerity.


Politics are complicated. It is hard to distinguish whether the Republicans were afraid of being called racists for opposing Obama's globalist policies, or whether they were globalists themselves and Barack Obama was simply deflecting heat and proposing what they would have otherwise proposed on their own. In trade, they ignored obviously impeachable offenses.


The media has played a huge part in emboldening the Obama Administration and will play an even bigger part in protecting what the globalists consider his "legacy" which includes open borders, climate agreements and subsidies for "green" industries. They openly criticize any attempts at holding the Obama Administration accountable as "fake news" and are building the disinformation apparatus.


To further complicate matters, Obama plans to remain in Washington and run a counter-government to fight back with all sorts of "fake news" that the fake news organizations will gladly report as actual news. This is what Barack Obama has always been, a community organizer and he plans to continue the efforts with the political clout of a former president. Think of Black Lives Matter on steroids.


The number of large corporations who stand to benefit from the globalist agenda will back everything Obama does, pushing the agenda that nationalism is a form of racism. The alignment has begun, but only the globalists understand who they are and what they want. The nationalists don't even recognize themselves as such. They are a vague conglomeration of different sections of a sort of conservative bent. The fact that they need to unite under one banner is lost on them. The only hope is that Trump can give this opposition form and substance, because he will need all of them standing behind him to counter this rabble. If he is serious about restoring America it will come down to a fight. Do not put it past Obama to encourage secession in a bid to lead the separatist America full of jihadists and liberal enablers.


The fireworks have not yet begun, how far we descend into madness is anyone's guess.

The Moral Depravity of the Obama Administration

2016 is drawing to a close, and the Era of Obama is almost over. Emmet Scott takes a look back at the eight years of the Obama presidency and the cultural sewer it brought to the forefront of American political life.



[Barack Hussein Obama and the jihad demonstrators #7]

The Moral Depravity of the Obama Administration

by Emmet Scott

It is axiomatic that politics is the art of the possible, and that governments are guided by practical considerations rather than strictly moral ones. Nonetheless, until fairly recent times the citizens of Western nations could be confident that their governments at least subscribed in public to culturally Christian concepts of right and wrong when it came to framing and interpreting legislation, and that, by and large, the interests of the citizenry were considered of some importance to legislators and administrators.

That Western governments no longer even pretend to subscribe to Christian morality, and that they no longer have the interests of their own citizens at heart, is painfully obvious to all but the most blind or obtuse. A new “religion”, namely radical secularism, is the belief system which now informs the thinking and actions of most Western politicians. That this radical secularism is every bit as hostile to traditional Christianity as was the Marxist secularism of Communist regimes is not to be doubted. We have already witnessed the beginnings of a low-key and so far bloodless persecution of Christians who insist on holding to their traditional beliefs whenever these beliefs clash with the new secularist orthodoxy. A society that can fine a Christian family bakery $135,000 for refusing to bake a lesbian “wedding” cake, and which can throw a public registrar into jail for refusing to officiate at a gay “wedding”, is a society which has already travelled far down the road of Soviet totalitarianism.

The overturning of Christian ideas relating to sexual morality can only accomplish the complete destruction of the family and the normalization of the most depraved sexual activity imaginable. That the political and economic elites have already travelled far down that road is fairly obvious, although it would appear from the emerging evidence of the hacked Podesta emails that they have travelled much further even than most people hitherto realized. More on this presently.

If the radical secularism of the Western ruling elites is militant and proselytizing at home, it is equally so abroad. In pursuing the selfsame agenda overseas, the Obama administration has stirred up wars and revolutions throughout the globe, transforming America into a real menace to the peace and stability of the world. Nowhere is this better illustrated than in Syria.

The decision of the Obama and Cameron administrations in the US and UK to assist the anti-government insurrection in Syria in 2012, even though they knew that the “opposition” was comprised entirely of Islamist extremists, illustrates in the most graphic manner possible the utter moral bankruptcy of the Western political class. From 2012 onwards delegation after delegation of Christian prelates and lay-people arrived in Europe begging the West to cease helping the rebels. Even by that time we were already used to seeing images of ancient Christian communities massacred by the jihadists. Yet all such pleas fell on deaf ears, as Cameron and Obama ramped up hostility against the Syrian government. In this they were supported and even encouraged by the equally immoral Western media.

It was eventually left to Russia to save the Assad regime and prevent the country falling to ISIS, Al-Qaeda and their affiliates. Had it not been for Russian intervention at the end of 2015 the whole country would have been overrun and the Christian and Alawite communities exterminated. This, apparently, was a prospect which did not trouble Obama, Clinton, Kerry, or Cameron in the slightest.




[ISIS in Libya: The bloody knife pointing at Rome]

America under Obama had effectively become an ally of fundamentalist Islam. Neither Obama nor his backers of course see it that way. To them, the Holy Grail is democracy: If they can bring democracy to any society they can transform it into a liberal/secularist paradise. They fail completely to understand that democracy only works in societies like Europe, where the civilizing influence of Christianity has, over the centuries, produced a climate where men can (to some extent at least) agree to disagree. As Christianity fades in the West that civilized modus operandi is breaking down even here. But the idea that democracy can be used as a tool to civilize people is utter idiocy.

Which brings us on to the question of Russia. The demonization of Russia and her leader Vladimir Putin has been a consistent feature of the Obama regime almost from the word go.

Many theories have been proposed to explain this; and undoubtedly there is more than one cause. Yet we cannot doubt that Russia’s refusal to go along with the secularist agenda is a major factor. Russia has been accused of initiating an ideologically-motivated war against the West, presenting herself as the defender of Christians and Christian morality in a world that is increasingly hostile to both; yet the evidence would suggest that it is the West which initiated hostilities. In January 2014, long before the Ukraine crisis or Russia’s intervention in Syria, a vocal campaign, supported by influential Western politicians, was launched to boycott the Sochi Winter Olympics, on the grounds that the Putin regime was “oppressive” to gays. In actual fact, there was no “oppression” whatsoever; Russia had simply banned “gay propaganda”, namely the promotion of the homosexual lifestyle to children.

A couple of decades earlier, such attitudes would have been considered absolutely normal in the West. In this, as in so much else, it was the West, and not Russia, which had changed and which was promoting something radical and new, whilst at the same time attacking and demonizing anyone or any society which did not conform. The same attempts at secularist proselytism (often backed by Soros-funded NGOs) are also to be observed in the allocation of aid and even in trading relations with African, Asian, and Latin American countries. Those states which do not conform with regard to questions such as abortion and LGBT “rights” are punished financially.

But increasingly sanctions against recalcitrant states do not stop at economic measures. America under Obama has stirred up ideologically-motivated revolutions and insurrections in North Africa, the Middle East, eastern Europe and central Asia — much as the Soviet Union did during the second half of the twentieth century. In this regard it’s really no surprise that some of the keenest supporters of regime change in foreign parts have been the “Neoconservatives” — a group of mostly ex-Trotskyist intellectuals posing as “born-again” conservatives. But the so-called conservatism of the Neocons is a sham: their ideal society is a radically secularist social democracy, which has little or no place for Christianity. It is interesting to note that the recent Trump Revolution in America, which is at core a nationalist and traditionalist movement, has exposed the rift with the Neocons, who have in general returned to their natural home amongst the leftists of the Obama/Clinton camp.

And what a motley crew the latter are. The recent release of the Podesta emails by Wikileaks has exposed a terrifyingly sinister dimension to the lives of the secularist elites. Irrespective of what the evidently code-words found throughout the Podesta emails really mean (and it is interesting that Podesta has made no attempt to explain them), there can be no doubt whatsoever that high-ranking members of the Democrat Party, and some Republicans, have been involved in extensive paedophile activity. Several of them, such as Anthony Weiner and Dennis Hastert (Republican former Speaker of the House) have already been charged or done time in prison for their activities, but it is clear that these are merely the tip of a very large iceberg. We know, for example, that Bill Clinton (and apparently also Hillary) were frequent visitors to Jeffrey Epstein’s “Lolita Island” in the Caribbean, where sex-parties involving minors were the course du jour.

It is also interesting to note that, should the code-words in these emails actually refer to underage children, then Obama himself is deeply involved: we are told that he had spent $65,000 dollars on “pizza” to be delivered from Chicago (of all places) for a private party in the White House. We know, too, from FBI insiders, that repeated attempts to investigate the paedophile activities of high-ranking Democrats have been continually blocked by the White House (i.e. the Justice Department).

That such activities are part of the private lives of the secularist elites should surprise no one. All ideas of sexual mores and restraints are religious in nature, and in the West that means Christian. The rejection of Christian morality thus opens the way for a sexual free-for-all, where, quite simply, anything goes. It should come as no surprise therefore that the liberal elites of various European societies, such as the UK, have already been exposed as harbouring massive networks of paedophiles and deviants of other hues. As in America, they have used (and still use) their positions of power to protect themselves. The recent revelations of horrific abuse by public figures such as the DJ Jimmy Savile and the MP Cyril Smith — as well as several others — are but the tip of an enormous iceberg, which the Cameron (and presumably also now the May) administration succeeded in keeping a lid on. And the extent to which the secularist elites approve this behaviour may be judged from the fact that Harriet Harman, the former Labour Party Deputy Prime Minister, and left-wing activist, once headed a body (the National Council for Civil Liberties) which had, as one of its affiliated associations, the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange.

Whether the elites in America will also continue to be able to suppress the truth, in view of the Trump victory, remains to be seen. Indeed, the exposure or non-exposure of the truth in this matter may be the litmus test whether Trump is a genuine alternative or just another tool of the anti-Christian elite.

Time will tell.

BREAKING: Putin Goes to War with Radical Islam – Tells Terrorists, You’re About “to Feel It”
Breaking News By TruthFeedNews December 20, 2016

Much of the world was shocked and perhaps even a bit fearful as reports began coming in Monday of the assassination of the Russian ambassador to Turkey while delivering remarks at an art museum in Ankara, with some no doubt recalling the similarities of the incident to the one that sparked World War I.

Fears of a broader world war being touched off by the horrible murder appear to have been quelled for the moment though, as Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erodgan over the phone shortly after the assassination, according to Reuters.

That, however, doesn’t mean that Putin and Russia will not retaliate for what Putin described as a deliberate provocation designed to disrupt the uneasy Russian-Turkish relationship and derail efforts to wind down the civil war in Syria.

“A crime has been committed and it was without doubt a provocation aimed at spoiling the normalization of Russo-Turkish relations and spoiling the Syrian peace process which is being actively pushed by Russia, Turkey, Iran and others,” Putin declared. “There can only be one response – stepping up the fight against terrorism. The bandits will feel this happening.”

While praising slain Ambassador Andrei Karlov, Putin also revealed that he is sending investigators to Turkey to work hand-in-hand with Turkish officials, proclaiming, “We must know who directed the killer’s hand,” according to Newsmax.

Putin ordered security measures to be stepped up at Russian embassies and consulates around the world in case of further attacks, while also ordering extra security for Turkish diplomatic facilities in Russia, to guard against rogue attempts at retaliation by angry Russians.

According to the U.K. Express, the Russian Foreign Ministry is expected to raise the issue of the assassination with the United Nations Security Council immediately.

“There is no place for terrorism and we will be resolutely fighting against it,” stated a spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry.

In 1914,the Archduke Franz Ferdinand, presumptive heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was assassinated in Sarajevo, Serbia, an act of terrorism that eventually drew all of Europe into World War I.

Though we appeared to be on the verge of a global conflagration after the terrible assassination of a Russian diplomat in Turkey, it would appear that radical Islamic terrorists are the only ones who should be afraid of Putin’s response to the atrocity.

The Archduke Moment

 Obama - The Last Days - Social Studies

For the past 12 hours, Trump supporters are breathing a collective sigh of relief that President-elect Trump was abe to withstand the latest attack upon his ability to obtain the Presidency. Between the long arm of the George Soros bribery machine and the Communist-type pressure techniques of the DNC, the Electors were able to withstand thee pressures and do the right thing by electing Donald Trump.

The roadblocks to a Trump Presidency have so dominated our thinking and attention as well as the “fake news” threat to our First Amendment, little else has received coverage. It is now time that we collectively open our eyes, because America, without realizing it, has been thrust into the same situation that started World War I.

The Archduke Moment


In the single event that is most widely acknowledged to have led to the outbreak of World War I, Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was shot to death along with his wife by a Serbian nationalist in Sarajevo, Bosnia, in 1914.

Because of rival alliances, the world was eventually pulled into World War I, a way in which millions would die. In addition to the assassination of the Archduke, an arms race was also brewing at the time and this pulled in nations that had nothing to do with the assassination. Turkey is a member of NATO, the same could be said. Can there be any doubt that history is repeating itself?

Obama Is Determined to Start WWI-Provocation #1: Unproven Allegations of Election Tampering Against Russia

Ever since Trump won the general election, I have been saying that since Clinton would not be around to start World War III with Russia, it would fall to Obama to carry out this task in the short “lame-duck” window. True to this plan, Obama and his NWO allies in Congress have been spouting the false narrative that the Russians propelled Trump to victory over Clinton. These claims are being made without so much as one ounce of proof. The ridiculousness of this allegation has even made its way to the Independent Media where myself and 200 of my colleagues have been accused by the Washington Post as being agents working on behalf of Russia and Putin. In the instance of The Common Sense Show, nobody has been more voiciferous in my attacks upon Putin and the unwarranted presence of Russian soliers on American soil. However, blaming the Russians for stealing the election is only the beginning of the set of events designed to end with war in Russia.

Provocation #2: Obama Provoking War with Russia By Sending Combat Troops to the Russian Border


Obama is certainly making good on this promise. Last week, more than one of my deep cover sources, as well as Paul Martin and one of his sources stated that Obama was trying to provoke Russia into starting World War III. For example, I reported that Obama had sent 4,000 combat troops from Ft. Carson to an area near the Russian border. This even alone, could be sufficient provocation to start World War III.

Provocation #3

The Russian ambassador to Turkey has been shot dead by a police officer who shouted “Don’t forget Aleppo” as he pulled the trigger.


The stunning attack appeared to be a backlash against Russian military involvement in the Syrian civil war. Andrei Karlov was attacked at the opening of an art exhibition in Ankara by a man believed to be an off-duty Turkish police officer. Karlov was several minutes into a speech when he was shot. Footage of the attack showed a man dressed in a suit and then pulled out a gun, shouted “Allahu Akbar” and fired eight shots.

This shocking video shows a gunman holding a revolver in the air as the assassin was yelling “Allahu Akbar” after the shooting.
 
The MSM is describing this act as simple revenge for Syria. Nothing could be further from the truth. This was a political assassination, but not the political assassination being sold by the fake news artists of the main stream media. My sources describe this event as a CIA hit job designed to start war with Russia.

Conclusion

From where I sit, these provocations are as clear as the nose on your face. First, the border of Russia is threatened by the shipment of 4,000 troops and 1,600 tanks as well as support personnel. Can you imagine if Putin did the same in reverse by openly sending Russian troops to Cuba or even Mexico? The warhawks would be out in force and would be demanding retailitory action. And if our Ambassaor was killed by an ally of our enemy, the country would be demanding revenge and World War III. And throw in the allegation of election tampering, and it is clear that Obama is doing his best to deliver World War III to his globalist puppet masters. I look for more provocations.

2 Weeks of muslim Terrorism threatened world-wide for Christmas, 2016.

Monday, December 19, 2016 15:21
 
 Muslim Jihadists have threatened 2 Weeks of Terrorism around Christmas 2016.
December 19, 2016 to January 02, 2017 is a muslim call to kill Christians,
Jews, non-muslims, muslims who have become “Americanized”, infidels.
The muslim book “koran” commands all muslims to “destroy the infidels”
who are any non-muslim, or any muslim who does not obey the koran book.
This Islam is not a religion, but a cult of fear, hate, terrorism, and murder.
They brainwash, control, harass, intimidate, use psychological terrorism
tactics to “program” people.  Their goal:  To take over the entire World.
Same agenda as Hitler.

Already, a number of muslim terrorist attacks have been thwarted, including
a bombs on very young children.  However, News is flooding from Berlin, Germany
of a muslim terrorist attack on a Christmas Market filled with shoppers, families.
 
This story, of a truck-bomb attack plowing into a Christmas market in Berlin with large casualties, is being widely covered by mainstream tv news.

"The murder of the Russian Ambassador in Turkey is not a single action-Islamist this conspiracy yarn which, it can be assumed that stretch across the ocean”

"When they kill the ambassadors-the air smells distinctly of war”

Hey Obama…Hillary Lost, Get Over It

Onward Christian Soldiers -  (Battle Hymn of the Republic)

On Friday morning, in a routine radio address issued from the White House, which no one listens to, Obama said this: 


“As part of a personal beef against me, Putin engaged in hacking the US to undermine our democracy. At the G-20 Conference I told Putin, ‘Cut it out!’” 


Brother Nathaniel correctly points out:  :   [Bro Nathaniel was run out of California  not long ago.  He now lives in Priest River Idaho]
Hey Obama…Hillary Lost, Get Over It

Last we heard, there’s no evidence that Putin (or Russia) hacked anything.

Yet, Obama threatens retaliation:

“The US will take action at a time and place of our own choosing. The response may not be obvious. Some of it may be explicit and publicized, some of it may not be.”

I’m sure Russia is shivering in their boots. But one thing is sure, Russians aren’t afraid of a homosexual bastard posing as Genghis Cohen in the White House.

And that’s exactly what the “Russian hacking” media lies are all about, the Jewish hatred of Christian Russia.

Obama, (not Putin, for he is too high-principled to launch vendettas), is projecting on the President of Russia his own “personal beef.”



The homosexual Obama cannot endure any nation that opposes his perverse sexual agenda.

And like all old-hand homosexuals, when opposed, Obama goes stark raving mad. For like the devil, (whose son he is) the demonized Obama loses all contact with reality.

“The devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” (Fits Obama to a T).

EAT YOUR HEART OUT, Obama, Putin will continue Christianizing Russia while you sodomize America.

Obama, and the Jews who enable him, can only demonize Putin in the Jew-owned media, and do no more.

They can lie about Vladimir Putin…while he expands his Christian agenda for Russia:

Banned Homosexual Parades Forbids Homosexual Propaganda.

Installed Orthodoxy 101 In Public Schools Closed Gambling Casinos.

Declared Orthodoxy A National Holiday Rebuilt 23,000 Churches Destroyed By Communists.

Banned Abortion Ads Promotes Large Christian Families.

Positions The Church To Influence Education, Family Life, And The Military.

IS IT ANY SURPRISE that the Jews and their puppet Obama fear Putin?

Is it any wonder that Putin gets bad press in Jew-controlled America?

Then why should we be surprised that the Jew-owned media touts the BIG LIE that Putin and Russia hacked US cyberspace?

It’s a spiritual war, and the Jews and their shills are losing to Holy Russia.

'Extremely Disturbing Development In Washington - This Nightmare Isn't Over' - 'Everything Is Ramping Up At A Time It Should Be Ramping Down'

Onward Christian Soldiers   Battle Hymn of the Republic

While I am not much interested in or influenced by other people's claims of 'prophetic dreams and visions' specific or in general, the Christian Watchmen are,  in my opinion, by far the most astute reporters in pursuing  current and coming events.

The connection of current events to Islam is a prime factor, in my view.

'Extremely Disturbing Development In Washington - This Nightmare Isn't Over'
- 'Everything Is Ramping Up At A Time It Should Be Ramping Down'

coming_of_the_mahdi.jpg

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

Like Pastor Rick Wiles of TruNews says in the 1st video below, we here at ANP had believed the election of Donald Trump as president might just keep the US out of World War 3 and away from nuclear annihilation. And while we're still hopeful that cooler heads will prevail in the Middle East and around the world for the remaining 5 weeks before Trump is sworn into office, recent events prove to us previous warnings that 'America isn't quite yet out of the woods' were right on the money.

With recent troubling threats coming out of the mouth of 'agent' Barack Obama warning of retaliating against Russia for alleged election hacking here in America that nobody is able to prove, leading Russia to demanding Obama either 'put up or shut up', we hear Pastor Wiles talking with Steve Quayle about these extremely disturbing developments in Washington.

Quayle joins in at the 6 minute mark and reaffirms why we're still living within one of the most dangerous periods of time in American history. Sharing with us a recent visit he had with Henry Gruver, who previously had a vision of Russia invading and destroying America and America's last days, Quayle warns that everything we're now watching on the world event stage prove matters of tension are escalating, not de-escalating, as he shares with us how everything is now falling into place.

Telling us we're witnessing not only a full-court-press effort at world destabilization by the current administration but reminded us that those extremists seeking a Muslim caliphate actually WANT and NEED a nuclear war to bring on their 'mahdi' proves to us why we are still in the danger zone at least until Trump gets into office if not beyond.

"Everybody needs to keep this in mind..in order for them to bring on the Muslim caliphate, those who will not allow any other religion to exist but Islam, there HAS TO BE nuclear war to bring in the Muslim 'mahdi'. Those who believe in a Muslim caliphate will do ANYTHING to initiate World War 3."




With the CIA seemingly attempting to overthrow a fair election here in America, Quayle reminds us the head of the CIA allegedly converted to Islam while Obama has promised he'll take the side of Islam. Meanwhile, we get more proof coming to us via the Department of Homeland Security, which reports proved has been infiltrated by the Muslim Brotherhood, attempting to hack at least 3 states during the election.

And meanwhile, they blame the Russians.

Quayle implores that only the prayers of God's people and His 'real intervention' will be able to stop this
.

Wiles asks if, with only 5 weeks remaining in Obama regime, "will these mentally unstable, delusional warmongers 'fade away' or will they dare start a world war before Donald Trump gets into the WH?"
We've long been warned that when all else fails, they bring us to war and Quayle tells us he's been watching the financial markets around the world and it's clear that 'something's getting ready to happen.' While telling us he prays that Trump has the opportunity to 'drain the swamp' rather than allowing it to 'turn it into an alligator farm', we're reminded once again why we're living in perilous times.

Which will come first? Will Trump be allowed to be inaugurated or will they take us into WW3 before hand? While Quayle reminds us again that we are not ready for thermonuclear war here in America, Wiles shares with us a series of prophetic and startling dreams that he and members of his family have had over the years that have left him edgy every Christmas as they've warned of war on US soil at Christmas time.

globalist_end_game.jpg

At the 17 minute mark of the video, the interview turns towards this story published in The Telegraph on Friday in which we're told how Obama could retaliate against a country that might not have done anything at all to do with these election-linked hacks. According to Judge Napolitano, pissed-off agents within US intelligence were responsible for the leaks that helped destroy Hillary Clinton's chances to win the presidency and her credibility, not Russia.

Imagine how Russia (or any other sovereign nation with a nuclear weapons program) might act if what their story warns about are carried out. If we take down the Russian power grid, do we not think that Russia might respond in turn? Imagine waking up tomorrow with no power...and no future date of it being turned back on. Is that what we want for America?

The immediate response may be to ramp up these operations, with the National Security Agency and US Cyber Command taking the lead. This will involve penetrating and tampering with Russian national systems – power grids, train signalling... military and intelligence networks.. it may also be possible to target Vladimir Putin's personal assets...

As Wiles confirms, "these people are absolutely insane".

Quayle goes further: "Well, I would say beyond insane. I would say they are filled with literal devils and I mean in the New Testament sense of demon possessed. I would say their appetite for power, destruction and blood, ie all of the blood rituals in the luciferian initiations" confirmed by Obama's legacy of bloodshed and destruction in Syria.

As they tell us, "the globalist bankers make more in one day of war than one year of peace"...Deagel.com and the Geogia Guidestones prove to us they want depopulation. Is nuclear war, a biological attack or an EMP in our futures?

And we're told, "these luciferian devil-worshipping monsters driven by demons to bring about destruction upon the planet Earth" have given us no signs they're prepared to stop their evil and destructive ways.



Sharing with us that nearly everywhere we now look around the world, everybody is getting put on a war footing and everything is ramping up at a time we'd hope it would be ramping down, we're reminded that the last 8 years have given every opportunity for so many 'trojan horses' to be allowed into America that everything seems to be falling into place for those who've long been working to take down America.

Reminding us once again of all the weapons and ammunition purchases that have been made over the years for different agencies, Wiles tells us he's long-believed they're being staged for an invading army. Reminding us also of plans years ago of Obama's desire for an internal standing army as strong as the US military, we see why if there really are plans to overthrow America, these next 5 weeks may just be the last chance they have.

The 2nd video below is Obama's full press conference on Friday for those who may want to see it.  <<<snip

A CIA-led Coup Against American Democracy Is Unfolding Before Our Eyes — Paul Craig Roberts

A CIA-led Coup Against American Democracy Is Unfolding Before Our Eyes

Paul Craig Roberts       www.paulcraigroberts.org/2016/12/17/a-cia-led-coup-against-american-democracy-is-unfolding-before-our-eyes-paul-craig-roberts/

This article by Moon of Alabama is not conspiracy theory: www.informationclearinghouse.info/46056.htm Read it carefully. Check out the links.

The article is a documented and accurate description of a coup that is underway. The extraordinary lies that are being perpetrated by the media and by members of the US government have as their obvious purpose the prevention of a Donald Trump presidency. There is no other reason for the extraordinary blatant lies for which there is not a shred of evidence. Indeed, there is massive real evidence to the contrary. Yet the coup proceeds and gathers steam.

President Eisenhower warned us more than a half century ago of the danger that the military/security complex presents to US democracy. In the decades since Eisenhower’s warning, the military/security complex has become more powerful than the American people and is demonstrating its power by overturning a presidential election.

Will the coup succeed?

In my opinion, former and present members of the US government and the media would not dare to so obviously and openly participate in a coup against democracy and an elected president unless they expect the coup to succeed.

It is an easy matter for the ruling interests to bribe electors to vote differently than their states. The cost of the bribes is miniscule compared to the wealth and income streams that a trillion dollar annual budget provides to the military/security complex. The fake news of a Putin/Trump election-stealing plot generated by unsupported allegations of present and former members of US intelligence, the lame-duck President Obama, and the presstitute media provide the cover for electors to break with precedent “in order to save America from a Russian stooge.”

The CIA-controlled European media, the politicians in Washington’s European vassal states, NATO officials, and the brainwashed European peoples will support the coup against Trump.

The only ones speaking against the coup are the voters who elected Trump—all of whom are alleged to have been deceived by Russian fake news— the Russian government, and the 200 websites falsely described by the Washington Post and the secret organization PropOrNot as Russian agents.

In other words, those objecting to the coup are the ones described by the coup leaders as those who made the coup necessary.

I do not know that the coup will succeed, but looking at the commitment so many high level people have made to the coup, I conclude that those bringing the coup expect it to succeed.

Therefore, we should take very seriously the expectation of success that those who control levers of power are demonstrating.
