Won't Go 175 miles and can't make it up a hill ..
5-20-18, LATimes -- The first five buses BYD sent to Los Angeles Metro were pulled off the road after less than five months of service. Internal emails and other agency records show that agency staff called them “unsuitable,” poorly made and unreliable for more than 100 miles.
Despite strong concerns from its own staff about the quality and reliability of the company’s vehicles, the transit agency awarded BYD $$ tens of millions of dollars more in public contracts.
When Chinese battery maker BYD Ltd. approached Southern California officials in 2008 touting ambitious plans to build electric cars, local politicians jumped at the promise of thousands of jobs and cleaner air. However, in the nine years since, agencies have awarded BYD grants, subsidies and public contracts worth more than $330 million for its battery-powered buses, forklifts and trucks. The company is positioned to be a prime supplier of electric buses to the nation’s second-largest system, as Los Angeles’ Metro sets a 12-year deadline to abandon fossil fuels.

Revelation 12:6 "And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days."
Most agree that Israel, is the "woman" in the context of this verse. If we then consider that the end of the 1260 "days" was when Israel came out of "the wilderness" (of the people Ezekiel 20:35), or out from being scattered among the nations, returning home and declaring her independence in 1948, and subtract 1260 years ("each day for a year"), we arrive at 688 AD.
The blasphemous founding verses are written in the mosaic on the Dome of the Rock both inside and out. Over the nearly 1400 years of Islamization of the Middle East, the Holy Land became spiritually desolated by the exile of Christians and Jews. Today Iran is 99% Muslim, with Iraq at 98% and Syria at 90%, while Saudi Arabia is 100% and Turkey 99% Muslim. By the 1800's Israel was rendered a desolate, barren, relatively abandoned, wasteland. It is very important for everyone to get familiar with the History of Mecca.
Luke 24:39 Jesus said, "Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have."
1 John 2:22 "Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: [(but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also]."
Continuing our study it will become increasingly apparent that the Islamic Dome of the Rock is God's symbol for Islam in prophecy, and that Islam is the subject of Daniel's "time of the end", and the "end of the world". Matthew 24:3 [To be cont’d] Source

6-21-18, Daniel Greenfield -- In 2008, Colorado separated a Jewish boy from his parents. Marten Kudlis was separated from his parents while waiting for his mother to bring him his ice cream. The 3-year-old boy who had just been playing in the park never got his ice cream.
Instead Francis Hernandez, an illegal alien driving 81 miles an hour, slammed into a pickup truck, killing the two women inside, and smashing it through the glass wall of the Baskin Robbins.
Blood and broken glass covered the floor. Little Marten, who had just learned to ride a bike, died of a slashed jugular vein and was buried with a teddy bear.
Francis Hernandez had been arrested 16 times in 5 years without ever being turned over to immigration authorities. That failure to enforce immigration law separated a little boy from his family forever. [..snip]
There are no apologies or excuses necessary for detaining illegal aliens who illegally cross the border. Even if we set aside minor matters like national sovereignty and the rule of law, the stories of these murdered children provide ample justification for arresting every single illegal migrant.
Either we separate illegal migrants from this country. Or they will go on brutally tearing families apart. And if we allow them to use children as human shields, then American children will pay the price.
President Trump has called the media the “enemy of the American people.” It’s not just the enemy. Its manicured hands are covered in the blood of American men, women and children. The media advocates for drug dealers, for Islamic terrorists and for illegal aliens. The more Americans they kill, the more the media cheers them on. The media’s lies aren’t just tearing apart the country, they’re killing children - AMERICAN CHILDREN! More here

Difference in Devil Worship & Witchcraft?
Devil worship 'Satanists' is a practice based on the devil of the Holy Bible ... Witchcraft and "Wiccans" have nothing to do with satanism or devil worship. They derive their religious views from nature itself and do not believe in the devil. Satanism/devil worship is an outgrowth of Christianity and is a way of rejecting the Savior, Jesus Christ faith; just another anti-Christ group.

Photo of Crying Child & Pres Trump
Yanela Never Separated From Her Parents
What's the truth?
6-22-18, Time Magazine photoshopped an image that has become emblematic of children separated from their parents as they illegally cross the border. We see a young girl crying with an image of President Trump in a pose to appear uncaring.
The girl’s father, 32-year-old Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, says that his wife Sandra Maria Sanchez took his daughter on the dangerous journey from Honduras to reach the U.S. border on June 3, 2018 without notifying him.
Yanela was never separated from her mother. In the genuine photo, the two year old girl was crying as her mother was apprehended and being searched as she had illegally entered the United States. Sandra is a perfect example of all the lies the media tells about illegal aliens. Two-time illegal entry, which is a felony. Took a 2 year old through that danger, and left her husband, who has a good job, at home with the other 3 kids. Daily Caller:
There’s one person responsible for Yanela’s tears … her own mother. More here

6-21-18, [Cont'd] In another of Daniel's dreams we find:
2. (KJV) Daniel 7:1 In the first year of Belshazzar king of Babylon Daniel had a dream and visions of his head upon his bed: then he wrote the dream, [and] told the sum of the matters.
[Confirmation for the first year of Belshazzar to be 552 BC]
Later in this dream we read:
(KJV) Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.
2500 - 552 = 1948 The restoration of the Jews to the holy land, declaring an independent Israel. End of the Jews being given into his (their oppressors) hand and being scattered among the "wilderness" of the nations.
"His hand" being 'little horn" - from "Zondervan Handbook to the Holy Bible" - "Opposing God's people in different guises throughout history is the "little horn" (8, 20-21), until God finally removes its power."
The probability of this prophecy - these prophecies being a pair of parallel accidents, that each span 2500 years, would be statistically absurd. Blessedly there are many more problems that reinforce them. For open eyes these problems aptly demonstrate that it wasn't until after the dates of 1948 and 1967 had come to pass, and we entered this - Daniel's - "time of the end", that we could understand the solutions to these simple problems both mathematically and textually.
The book of Daniel was sealed until the "time of the end":
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, [even] to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
God followed this up with a crystal clear statement of fact:
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words [are] closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
What a perfect seal God had Daniel put on this book!
DAY YEAR LANGUAGE OF PROPHECY
Within this traditional continuous historic context of study we also find a "language" of prophecy wherein we consider "each day for a year." We learn that this day-year principle was well known prior to the 20th century, when we look to those of the "former age" and "search of their fathers," as the Bible instructs. More here

President Trump Could Succeed At
'Making America Great Again'
That’s What the Leftists, Commie Liberals Fear
In May 2018, while former secretary of state under Obama, John Kerry kept meeting with Iranian leaders overseas to sabotage his country’s policies, President Donald Trump announced that America would withdraw from the Iran deal. On the eve of Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu televised captured Iranian documents that confirmed Iran never had any intention of stopping its nuclear bomb-making program.
When Trump withdrew from the Iran deal, American elites went berserk. They intimated nullification would hasten Iranian proliferation and provoke more Iranian belligerence. If Iran tries to hijack another American vessel or launches another missile near an American carrier, Trump will not react like Obama did. As the Iranians know, Trump would take military steps to terminate Iran’s ability to replicate such aggression.
Trump made it easy for the Americans to abandon negotiations and difficult for the North Koreans to do so. Trump effected the largest increase in US defense spending in decades. He and Defense Secretary James Mattis threatened to destroy North Korea. Trump stated often that he has no idea whether talks with Kim will lead to an agreement, but it was worth an attempt. He even canceled the summit after Kim insulted National Security Adviser John Bolton. Trump’s cancellation taught Kim the price of failure and showed Kim, that unlike his predecessors, Trump does not fear walking away. For Kim to negotiate with Trump, he must respect Trump’s choices.
The elites criticized Trump’s summitry with Kim and the summit agreement filled with platitudes. The objective was not to reach a serious agreement at this stage. The objective was to sign a piece of paper that had “Agreement” on it. By Kim signing the piece of paper, Trump has put all the time pressure on Kim alone.
Obama’s legacy in the Middle East rests on the Iran deal. When Trump terminated the deal, Obama’s Middle East legacy collapsed. Trump renewed America’s alliances with Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Israel, reducing Iranian power in the region.
Essentially, Israel now has a free hand to take preemptive action against Iranian arsenal in Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere that could strike Israel. Besides, Trump’s deal could denuclearize North Korea, and curtail the transfer of Chinese and North Korean nuclear technology to Iran.
Unlike Obama, Trump knows how to make favorable deals. Trump is dealing with a nuclear armed North Korea because Clinton, Bush, Obama, and other US elites, enabled its nuclear armament through incompetent diplomacy.
Now that Trump is negotiating, what they fear is not that he will fail like they did. They fear that he will succeed, like only he could.

Starbucks in Trouble and Closing 150 Stores
And they're big.
It's closing 150 stores in the U.S. And the downgrades are kicking in as they raised the price of black coffee.  Starbucks hasn’t met experts’ estimates for same-store sales in the Americas for five of the last six quarters and the chain is struggling with potentially too many U.S. stores. It's also a trend from another generation that isn't catching on. It's slowing and faltering.
Analyst John Glass said on Wednesday:
"Facing now what is clearly decelerating top-line in its two key markets, ... US comp recovery remains elusive, offset by a valuation that has been compressing over the past 2+ years." Starbucks shares are down 5 percent in early trading Wednesday. With no direction to grow, it becomes increasingly obvious that Starbucks seized on the recent racial issues to buff up its image [and failed].

In one of Daniel's dreams we read: Daniel 10:1 In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing [was] true, but the time appointed [was] long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision.
Toward the end of this prophecy we read: Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which [was] upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that [it shall be] for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these [things] shall be finished.
[The first year of Cyrus in Babylon 536 BC or the third year of Cyrus to be 533 BC]
Jews - both Messianic and non-Messianic - translation of the Hebrew idiom "time, times and an half" is somewhat different than most of us Christians may have been taught. While Daniel's prophecies use this "times" idiom, the Old Testament never defines it. However, most Christians are familiar with the following verse from the New Testament:
2 Peter 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day [is] with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
The Greek word that is translated as "day" in the above verse is "hemera". This is an ambiguous word whose definition is determined by it's context. In 3 other passages in the KJV it is translated as "time" (in 12 verses in the NASB). So if the Lord had meant for a "time" to be as a thousand years: 2-1/2 "times" = 2500 years.
Then 2500 - 533 = 1967 The Year Israel took control of Jerusalem from the Gentiles
There is a 2-3 year leeway in Babylonian period historical dating, rendering "zero year" discussion unimportant. Might the Lord have allowed for the calculation to be the most simple? * Source

Aid to Illegal Migrants in Hungary a Crime
6-20-18, New York Times -- Hungary’s parliament has passed a law that could see anyone helping illegal migrants claim asylum in the country imprisoned. The ‘Stop Soros’ law is named after Hungarian-born billionaire and open-borders advocate, George Soros. Under the law, individuals who aid migrants, informing them about the asylum procedure or “providing financial or property benefit” will be liable for a 12-month prison sentence.
