WORLD GONE MAD:
1 John 2:18; Genesis 6:5; Matthew 24:9-14; Romans 1:29
6-30-20, Michael Synder* -- Turmoil and mayhem in the USA includes lawlessness and virus lockdown. Reportedly law enforcement authorities all over the USA are bracing for more rioting [2 Thess 2:7] as liberal leftist America hating anarchists are planning more violence to make July 4th 2020 one of the biggest protest days so far. Traditionally in America, INDEPENDENCE DAY is greatly celebrated, but this year two protests are planned near the White House : occupying 'The Ellipse' and “million man march” will be in front of the White House ending at the U.S. Capitol.
Thus far the Covid virus scare has been successfully locking down America causing untold misery health wise and on the economy. The plan to continue and increase the destruction needs to find ways to make it sound a lot more scary than it really is [98% of victims recover]. Over the past couple of weeks we're being told that this new wave of virus is “10 times more infectious” than it was when it first started spreading in China and many people have really been freaking out as the number of confirmed cases have come forth.
Although the remaining months of 2020 will be chaotic, the truth is that things are going to get progressively worse:
- Three nuclear nations China, Pakistan and India have been shooting each other over a disputed border region
- North Korea just blew up “a joint liaison office” that it had used for talks with the South Korean government
- Turkey is warning Israel of grave consequences if the Jewish state proceeds with a plan to annex portions of Judea and Samaria [aka West Bank]
Even so, come Lord Jesus. Revelation 22:20; 2 Thessalonians 2:7; Daniel 9:5, 7

Is Russia still a threat? Does the world need NATO?
6-17-20, Scott Ritter* - By calling out Germany for failing to pay its fair share of the cost of North Atlantic Treaty Org [NATO], US President Donald Trump has challenged the legitimacy of the foundational premise upon which the alliance was built. This is a good thing. Experts now speculate that a second term for Pres Trump could fatally weaken NATO the transatlantic alliance that has been since 1949 charged with deterring the perceived Russian aggression since the end of the Second World War. The Trump administration has announced it will withdraw some 9,500 troops from Germany as punishment for Berlin’s failure to raise its required contribution to defense spending of two percent of its GDP.
Pres Trump’s actions, and the concerns of the international academics about the possible demise of NATO, are perhaps best evaluated by NATO’s first secretary general in 1952 - Lord Ismay said that the purpose of alliance was “to keep the Russians out, the Americans in, and the Germans down." [..]
This relentless search for an enemy worthy of a transatlantic alliance [NATO] has brought the world full circle ... Russia is neither seeking nor is prepared for a major conflict with the West, and yet the NATO alliance problems that don't exist. “Keeping Russia out” has never been a problem – Russia never wanted in.

6-16-20, DW.com -- On June 15, 2020 US President Donald Trump said the USA is reducing the number of American troops deployed in Germany accusing Berlin of being "delinquent" in its contribution to NATO. He said: "We're protecting Germany and they're delinquent. That doesn't make sense; the deployment of US troops comes at a tremendous cost to the United States. [USA $686 billion in 2017; Germany $45 bln - CNBC report here]
Russia is no threat; no need for NATO
In addition to projecting a non-existent Soviet desire to occupy Western Europe, the US manufactured so-called “missile gaps” and “bomber gaps” that fueled an arms race with the Soviets of its own making. The US needed NATO as a justification for priming a post-war military industrial complex that underpinned American economic viability, and NATO needed a Russian threat to justify its continued existence. From George H.W. Bush through to Barack Obama; only Donald Trump has refused to play their game. Trump has envisioned a world where the US and Russia could get along as friends, calling out the hypocrisy of the US ...
continuing to pay the lion’s share of a bloated NATO budget, and re-examining America’s relationship with the world in a context other than simply preserving 75-year-old “rules,” Trump has challenged the very foundation of legitimacy NATO has manufactured for itself. It has taken the Trump administration four years to strip away the veneer of legitimacy surrounding NATO. If re-elected, the reality is that a Trump administration, given four more years, will tear down the entire NATO edifice. Given that NATO was born on a false premise that has been artificially sustained for nearly 70 years, such an outcome cannot come soon enough.

Israel's Muslims: In Gaza Dwell Islamic Terrorists Called 'Palestinians' Who Slaughter Innocent Civilian Jews - American's too: US Court Finds Iran & Syria Culpable
US Court Orders Iran, Syria Liable
6-2-20, JERUSALEM (AP) — Judge Randolph D. Moss in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia USA ruled that seven Americans wounded or killed in attacks carried out by Israel's Muslims aka "Palestinians" and Iran and Syria were culpable; must pay damages because they provided “material support” to militant terrorist Muslim groups Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
Syria, Iran and the Iranian Ministry of Information of Security, all named as defendants in the civil case, did not take part in the proceedings. Collecting the damages will be problematic since Iran and the U.S. have no formal diplomatic relations. In the past, American courts have ordered the government of Iran to pay hundreds of millions of dollars in damages to families of Americans killed by Palestinian militants without collection.

World Without End
“For since the beginning of the world men have not heard, nor perceived by the ear, neither hath the eye seen, O God, beside thee, what He hath prepared for him that waiteth for Him.”
2-23-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- This beautiful Old Testament promise has been appropriated by Paul (1 Corinthians 2:9) and applied to the New Testament believer guided by the indwelling Spirit of God. It looks forward to the ages to come when all those “things which God hath prepared for them that love Him” will be given in their fullness.
It is noteworthy that both “the beginning of the world” in our text (Isaiah 64:4) and “world without end” (Isaiah 45:17) are translations of the same Hebrew word, olam, which means essentially “indefinitely long ago” or even “eternity.” Thus, the wonderful plan God has prepared for His people, to be implemented and enjoyed in eternity future, was formulated by Him in eternity past.
We were then chosen “in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love” (Ephesians 1:4). He had even planned our redemption from sin through His Son, “with the precious blood of Christ, . . . Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you” (1 Peter 1:19-20).
We may not, in this life, really comprehend with our minds such marvelous things, but we who are born again in Jesus [John 3:3, 7] “wait for Him” can believe them with rejoicing in our hearts, for “God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:10). Thus, we can unite with thankful and understanding hearts in Paul’s great doxology: “Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen” (Ephesians 3:21).

5-26-20, New Delhi: Satellite images show massive construction activity at a high altitude Chinese air base, located just 200 kilometres away from the Pangong Lake, the site of the skirmish between forces of India and China on May 5-6, 2020. Two images show the Ngari Gunsa airport in Tibet. The first image is dated April 6, 2020 while the second one, dated May 21, 2020 showing massive construction activity including the addition of what appears to be a second taxi-track or a secondary tarmac to position helicopters or combat aircraft. A third image shows a close-up of the main tarmac at the airport with a line-up of four fighter jets believed to be either J-11 or J-16 fighters of the Chinese People's Liberation Army Air Force. The current standoff between Indian and Chinese forces is described as India/China worst border tension since Kargil in 1999.
India-China Border Tensions
5-27-20, Time.com -- As precursors to possible nuclear war go, fistfights and stone throwing aren’t exactly the first things that come to mind. However, along India and China’s long 2000 mile contested border, that’s exactly what's been happening.
Recently the saber rattling has prompted US President Trump to offer to mediate what he called a “now raging dispute” between Asia’s two major military and nuclear powers.
Tensions along the two borders have been high for decades, with the Indian government reporting more than 1,000 mostly minor incursions by Chinese troops between 2016-18. Currently hostilities have increased following large Chinese troop movements into previously Indian-controlled territory and the enlargement of the Chinese Airbase ...
A Nuclear War Between India and China?
9-30-19, NationalInterest -- War Between India and China Could Go Nuclear Millions could Die. A hypothetical war between India and China would be one of the largest and most destructive conflicts in Asia. It would/could rock the Indo-Pacific region taking a significant toll on the global economy. India and China border one another in two locations, northern India/western China and eastern India/southern China, with territorial disputes in both areas. China attacked both theaters in October 1962, starting a month long war that resulted in minor Chinese gains on the ground. Both countries have a “No First Use” policies regarding nuclear weapons but that debatable; both countries have such large populations, each over 1.3 billion, that they are essentially unconquerable...
India & Pakistan: Why India wants to break its decades-old nuclear pledge with Nuclear Armed Pakistan
Aug 22, 2019 - India's re-evaluation of its "no first use" nuclear pledge has implications for ... a furious reaction from Pakistan, which, like India, claims the entire territory. ... all reserved the right to use nuclear weapons first in a severe conflict. India's defense minister recently suggested that the country may re-evaluate its "no first use of nuclear weapons" doctrine, raising the stakes at a time of high tension with its nuclear-armed neighbor Pakistan.
Shortly after India tested nuclear weapons in May 1998, senior Indian officials declared India would follow a no-first-use doctrine. In 2003, India revised that commitment in releasing a revised official doctrine that explicitly maintained the option to retaliate with nuclear weapons in the event of a chemical or biological weapons attack. While many noted that India's move to "no first use of weapons of mass destruction" was a less expansive commitment than it had originally made, it was not regarded as a major shift. In 2016, India's then-defence minister Manohar Parrikar wondered why India should "bind" itself by declaring no-first-use. Better, Mr Parrikar argued, for adversaries not to know what India might do
California: Astrophotographer Andrew McCarthy's World's Clearest Picture of the Moon
Spectacular image he calls 'ALL TERMINATOR' was a 'beast of a project'
Due to a quirk of the light caused by the 'lunar terminator' – the line between light and dark sides of the moon – features such as craters look elongated. In a painstaking process, McCarthy took shots of the lunar surface where the effect is most pronounced and combined them into one detailed composite to capture every detail of the craters. The spectacular final result reveals a dazzling array of craters, dimples and imperfections on the fabulous Moon.
McCarthy, who took the original shots using an ASI1600MM and the Celestron edgeHD 800, might repeat the process for the moon's opposite phase. He said, ''This was exhausting to say the least, namely because the moon doesn't line up day over day, so each image had to be mapped to a 3D sphere and adjusted to make sure each image align. I may or may not try this again for the waning phases depending on feedback.”
The sun is closer to the horizon in the terminator, creating long shadows which give the surface a three-dimensional appearance. These shadows make the moon's surface clearer and features like craters more noticeable. According to NASA, many craters appear near the terminator because their height makes them easier to discern there. See NASA 2 min 24 sec video here:

Jesus said, "I tell you, it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon on the day of judgment than for you..." v1 The Apostle John had a vision: "I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies."

After Virus 'Pandemic' World's Economic Lock Down; Hunger May Reach 250 Million in a World of 7.7 Billion People: Biblical Proportions
Source: World Food Program (WFP)
The Lord Jesus said, "Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places."
4-24-20, WFP -- The world is at risk of widespread famines “of biblical proportions” caused by the world government's delusion locking own nations resulting in economic disaster in an attempt to quell the Covid-19 virus that has been proven to have a high rate of recovery. The WFP’s senior economist, Arif Husain, said the economic impact of the pandemic was potentially catastrophic for millions “Who are already hanging by a thread. It is a hammer blow for millions more who can only eat if they earn a wage. Lockdowns and global economic recession have already decimated their nest eggs. It only takes one more shock to push them over the edge. We must collectively act now to mitigate the impact of this global catastrophe.“
David Beasley, head of the World Food Program (WFP), said in his report that estimates of populations suffering from hunger could go from 135 million to more than 250 million; calling it the worst humanitarian catastrophe since the Second World War.
Those most at risk are in 10 countries affected by conflict, economic crisis. The fourth annual Global Report on Food Crises highlights Yemen, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Afghanistan, Venezuela, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria, Nigeria and Haiti. In South Sudan, 61% of the population was affected by food crisis last year, the report says. Even before the virus fiasco hit, parts of East Africa and South Asia were already facing severe food shortages caused by drought and the worst locust infestations for decades. Disaster of western nations soon to follow.
Addressing the UN Security Council during a video conference, Mr Beasley said: "Excuse me for speaking bluntly; the world must act wisely and fast. We could be facing multiple famines of biblical proportions within a short few months. The truth is we do not have time on our side. I do believe that with our expertise and our partnerships, we can bring together the teams and the programs necessary to make certain the new pandemic does not become a human and food crisis catastrophe.“ [..snip]
The Apostle John heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say a loaf of wheat bread or three loaves of barley will cost a day's wages: "A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny." Revelation 6:6; Matthew 24:7; Luke 21:11; Revelation 6:6

The Lockdown & Consequences Destroying Americans is Worse than the Virus - The hysteria placing blame on China is #2
4-16-20, Annette -- I think this "China's guilty" harangue is a diversion from the truly dangerous attack on America - what we're doing to ourselves. Rush Limbaugh says it best:
"There are uprisings all over this country against governors and their restrictions. It's happening. People aren't going to put up with this [lockdown]. People instinctively know we got to get back to work. We have to reopen the economy. People instinctively know now that however bad this[Covid-19 virus] is, it isn't as bad as they told us.
Not one model has been even close to correct and everything the medical and health experts have implemented or advised to be implemented have been based on these erroneous models [computers]. The American people are starting to get very suspicious and very frustrated because none of the data matches what we have done here. None of the data matches the behavior.
There is nothing.
There is: American — 22 million people sidelined, 22 million people furloughed, left off. How many of those jobs are even coming back? How many of those businesses are going to reopen?
This is a very, very serious thing — self-inflicted — and the American people are beginning to say, “Why was it done? We’re not dealing with millions of deaths. We’re not dealing with the absolute worst-case scenario.”
Remember, now, the doomsayers always win. The doomsayers get to predict the absolute worst, and then when it comes in far better, they say:
“See? It’s our prediction that made it better. We made people change their behavior.” They never lose. But people are getting wise to it now."
How WHO Became China's Accomplice in the Covid-19 Fiasco
4-2-20, Federalist -- The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is pushing to become a public health superpower & quickly found a willing intl partner - Tedros of the World Health Org [WHO]. Experts report the virus started as early as October, 2019 months before the world was alerted. Reportedly rather than alert nations, China arrested journalists & doctors who tried to sound the alarm and blocked information on social media removing all reports of accurate infection numbers. At the same time WHO representatives gushed in praise of the regime’s response, noting the “Chinese people feel protected.”
The WHO continues to lavishly praise China as they continued to downplay the threat of the coronavirus, taking months to classify it finally as a pandemic because that “might spook the world further.” [..snip] China worked “tirelessly behind the scenes” in lobbing to ensure the election of Tedros, who previously served in the government of the Marxist and violently repressive Ethiopian People’s Revolutionary Democratic Front. This gruesome movement was responsible for gross human right abuses, such as torture, repression, and electoral fraud.
During his tenure as health minister, Tedros was most known to have covered up three cholera outbreaks. [..] The CCP’s near-total takeover of the WHO comes at a sharp human cost, as the world is tragically now realizing. But despite China buying off most WHO officials, the core and plurality of its funding comes from U.S. taxpayers. It’s time for the United States to urgently demand WHO reform before more lives are lost.

World: From Utah to Iceland to Israel Increased Seismic Activity
The Lord GOD said: It shall come to pass when Gog [prince of Turkey] shall come against the land of Israel that My fury shall come up. For in My jealousy and in the fire of My wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking [earthquake] in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, fowls of heaven, beasts of the field, all creeping things and all mankind upon the face of the earth, shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, steep places shall fall and every wall shall fall to the ground... The Apostle John saw: "the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And every island fled away and the mountains were not found."

March 2020 EARTHQUAKES IN CENTRAL U.S:
- On March 31, 2020 a 6.5 magnitude shook Idaho, generating a multitude of avalanches. In April 238 aftershocks have hit Idaho; five were substantial 4.0 to 6.5.
- On March 18, 2020 a 5.7 mag hit Salt Lake City, Utah, approximately 340 miles away from the Idaho epicenter. Since there have been 886 aftershocks in Utah.
- Recently in Wyoming at Yellowstone Natl Park over 111 earthquakes have been recorded. The park is seismically active with more than 10,000 thermal features with more than 500 geysers. The Yellowstone caldera is listed as the most dangerous supervolcano in existence.
2020 Volcano Activity Worldwide:
- April 14, 2020 Mammoth lake California continues to 'rattle:' Volcano activity ongoing more here
- On April 10, 2020 Indonesia’s Krakatoa volcano had two relatively small eruptions. The most recent eruption was in 2018, generating a tsunami and killing 437 people.
- January 21, the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland volcano and 8,000 earthquakes with new activity. The underground volcano is about 30 miles southwest of Iceland’s capital and only nine miles from Iceland’s intl airport. Also a nearby geothermal powerplant which could be endangered by volcanic activity.
- On April 10, 2020 in Israel’s Arava region had a 3.6 mag.
- On April 5, 2020 there was a 4.3 mag epicenter in the Red Sea about 60 miles south of Eilat with over 30 aftershocks.
- On Feb 6, 2020 a 3.8 mag quake hit off the coast of Haifa
4-11-20, Jakarta Post -- Mount Merapi eruption on Feb. 13, 2020 is not alone; three more volcanoes—Mount Kerinci in West Sumatra, Mount Semeru in East Java and Mount Merapi in Central Java—showed elevated activity on Friday, Apr 10, 2020 on the same day that Anak Krakatau erupted. According to 'Volcanology and Geological Hazard Center' the activity at the four mountains was unrelated to one another, as each volcano had a different magma chamber. Volcanic and tectonic activity is the norm in Indonesia, which is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, an area where many volcanoes and earthquakes are formed and they eruptions happen every day.
Anak Krakatau, a volcano that emerged from the remains of the biggest volcano blast recorded by the Krakatau volcano in 1883, erupted twice on Friday, 4/10/20 spewing out a 500-meter-high column of ash during the second eruption, which lasted more than 38 minutes.
Reporter from Israel, Adam Eliyahu Berkowitz: “Even though Jerusalem is over 3,600 feet higher than the Dead Sea, the mountaintop capital is actually quite close to the sea, making it likely that a major earthquake in the geologically active Jordan Rift would be the source of the earthquake that is prophesied to drastically change the topography of Jerusalem in the end-of-days.” Daniel 12:1-13; Revelation 1:7, 11:18
In Revelation 6:14, 16:20 and Isaiah 54:10; Nahum 1:5:
"And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places."
Why did doctors during the Black Death wear 'beak masks
Middle Ages Beak Doctors & the Italy 1656 AD Black Plague
- to treat and cure victims
- to bury the dead
- tally the number of casualties in logbooks for public record
- documented the last wishes of their patients
- testify and witness wills of the dead and dying
- to conduct autopsies , in order to better understand how the plague might be treated
- a hat made of leather that may have provided some protection by keeping some bacteria away
- a bird-like mask with a long beak; they believed that the plague was spread by birds, therefore the mask would remove disease from a patient transferring it to the garment or evil spirits brought the disease so it was intended to scare them away
- the beak was packed with strong, pleasant smelling flower petals, ambergris, mint to mask odor of rotting flesh and ward off miasma (“bad air”) that spread the disease.
- long overcoat was tucked behind the plague doctor’s mask and extended all the way down to the feet.
- all the clothing was coated with suet [fat] based on the belief that it would either repel the plague from the doctor, or draw it away from the victim and served to repel victims bodily fluids from sticking to the coat
- leather breeches and gloves
- a wooden cane was carried that could be used to examine patients without touching them. It also was used to indicate to his helpers or the family members of a victim how and where to move the patient or the deceased. It was also used as a weapon to defend against the assault by desperate patients.
The frightening plague doctor mask found other uses – in theater. The beaked physician figure became a character in commedia dell’arte and the mask is still worn during the Carnival of Venice, Italy. Source Ancient-origins.net here

Corona Virus: What IS True? Who to Believe?
‘Facebook removes Project Veritas video for violating policy against coronavirus information’, (Washington Times, April 1, 2020). “Recorded inside an automobile with Mr. O’Keefe behind the wheel, the 9½-minute video chronicles him visiting a drive-thru facility in New York state where people can be tested from their cars for COVID-19, the potentially deadly respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus. “Mr. O’Keefe is seen throughout the clip goading military and medical personnel with questions about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic and how it has been covered by the media.” Bad Boy, Jimmy, for going on the hunt for the truth.

- On Laura Ingraham last week, guest Dr. William Grace had this to say: “There is no hospital in NYC that is at capacity with patients. There are no patients in the Central Park hospital. And, on that huge hospital ship that can house 1,000 patients, there are presently 3 patients total.”
- “Twitter, stepping up its enforcement of misleading and harmful coronavirus-related claims, required Fox News host Laura Ingraham to delete a tweet from 10 days ago that misrepresented details of an unproven treatment for coronavirus.” (Variety, March 30, 2020)
- “In the now-deleted tweet from March 20, Ingraham, host of the cable network’s “The Ingraham Angle,” wrote, “Lenox Hill [Hospital] in New York among many hospitals already using Hydroxychloroquine with very promising results." The tweet was based on Ingraham’s interview on the Fox News show with Dr. William Grace, whom Ingraham incorrectly identified as being an oncologist at New York’s Lenox Hill Hospital. A correction Fox News later appended to an article about the segment said Ingraham had wrongly described Dr. Grace as affiliated with the hospital and that “his opinions given below are his own.” Bad girl, Ingraham, for trying to get the truth out there about the hype the media spreads on the virus.
- “It’s a joke,” said a top hospital executive, whose facilities are packed with coronavirus patients. (New York Times, April 2, 2020) “Such were the expectations for the Navy hospital ship U.S.N.S. Comfort that when it chugged into New York Harbor this week, throngs of people, momentarily forgetting the strictures of social distancing, crammed together along Manhattan’s west side to catch a glimpse.”
- “On Thursday, though, the huge white vessel, which officials had promised would bring succor to a city on the brink, sat mostly empty, infuriating executives at local hospitals. The ship’s 1,000 beds are largely unused, its 1,200-member crew mostly idle.” [..snip] What about the multiple thousands of Influenza victims? Mr. Cuomo said in a statement: “Late Thursday, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo of New York reached an agreement with Pres Trump to bring Covid patients to the Javits Convention Center in Manhattan, another alternative site operated by the military, with 2,500 hospital beds.I asked President Trump this morning to consider the request and the urgency of the matter, and the President has just informed me that he granted New York’s request.” There was no word about doing the same with the U.S.N.S. Comfort.“Capt. Patrick Amersbach, the commanding officer of the medical personnel aboard the Comfort, said at a news conference that, for now, his orders were to accept only patients who had tested negative for the virus. If ordered to accept coronavirus patients, he said, the ship could be reconfigured to make that happen. If our mission shifts, we do what we can to meet that mission.”
The ever elusive truth is out there somewhere, but don’t look for it in the mainstream or social media.

China Trying to Defend Itself: 'Not our fault, US fault!'
3-15-20, MarketWatch -- Chinese officials and state media sow doubt — and levy accusations against the USA — ... in numerous televised interviews during the COVID-19 outbreak. At its most extreme, to directly accuse the U.S. military of creating and spreading the pathogen, has come from Chinese medical leaders, ambassadors and Foreign Ministry spokespersons — not to mention the hundreds of thousands of comments on Chinese social media echoing the conspiracy theories. The undertaking is part of a broader campaign to deflect blame for the pandemic and China’s delay in taking action early in the emergence of the disease, which global experts say began in Wuhan, Hubei Province, China as early as November, 2019.

Apparently Beijing is trying to take advantage of the pandemic to increase its global standing & influence. [..] It must be held accountable. If not, an emboldened China [CCP], will grow more aggressive having learned that it can fool & bully the world into submission. If nation states do not realize they will suffer repercussions for such malfeasance, then our globalized world will endure more coronavirus-style pandemics in the future. CCP chose to deny the truth of COVID-19; its malpractice & incompetence helped unleash a pandemic on the world. For the sake of morality, political governance & the future, the world must speak truth to power condemning the CCP’s actions.
Dr. Fauci, It's Not Nice to Fool Congress About Vaccine
On Feb. 27, 2019, the U.S. House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations held a public hearing on “Confronting a Growing Public Health Threat: Measles Outbreaks in the U.S.” that was also broadcast live on C-span. Parents across the nation watched and heard the renowned Dr. Anthony Fauci, MD, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), either tell a bald faced lie or show his ignorance when he testified, under oath. On Jan. 30, 2019, Dr. Fauci gave an interview to CBS and said, "These [measles] outbreaks are due to the anti-vaccine movement." -->

<-- During the Congressional investigation Rep. Guthrie asked Dr Fauci:
"Can measles vaccine cause encephalitis?”
Dr. Fauci without blinking took a Pinocchio turn and answered: "The vaccine? No.”
When the audience broke out in audible disbelief and as the Chair brought the gavel down, Fauci knew he was busted and quickly murmured, “…rare.”
Then Nancy Messonnier, MD, Director of the CDC’s Natl Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, jumped in to help Fauci out. She stated authoritatively, “In healthy children MMR vaccine does not cause brain swelling and encephalitis.”

Why Trillion-Dollar Coronavirus Bailouts Will Shackle The .
Federalist.com -- Reasons the “Family First Coronavirus Response Act” and other coming bailout and stimulus packages are economic bad news for Americans. Due to our human nature, we make quick studies in dependency when “free” things offered to us. These new entitlements and bailouts may prove to be the proverbial camel’s nose under the tent, just as have nearly all other welfare expansions. Once the bad precedent is established, it is all too likely that the electorate [voters] will have a harder time resisting demands from politicians for greater government control of the economy. These “temporary” programs make permanent national sick leave and paid family leave more likely in the future. National Debt: The debt the federal government owes currently sits at $23.5 trillion. This means every American citizen born in 2020 enters the world owing $73,500 to our nation’s creditors. Emergency spending for the coronavirus only adds to the unconscionable level of debt we already owe. The money this nation borrows will need to be repaid through inflation or higher taxes sometime in the future.

Adolf Hitler | Biography, Rise to Power
Britannica -- Adolf Hitler, leader of the Nazi Party (from 1920/21) and chancellor and Fuhrer of Germany (1933-45). He was the dictator of Germany during that country's participation in World War II and he oversaw the Nazi Party. Hitler’s ideas included inequality among races, nations and individuals as part of an unchangeable natural order that exalted the “Aryan race” as the creative element of mankind. According to Hitler, the natural unit of mankind was the Volk (“the people”), of which the German people was the greatest.
Hitler's Mental Health
Psychology Today: Madness has been attributed to Adolph Hitler; evidences of his furious outbursts, cruelties and his most extreme expressions and orders suggest a cold brutality that was fully conscious however, there is evidence that he might have suffered from incapacitating syphilis. He may have suffered from some type of bipolar disorder. Indeed, much of Hitler's documented behavior and demeanor appears to corroborate such a retrospective diagnosis, mania or hypomania masking a chronic underlying state of despair, sadness and rage. Reportedly he killed himself in Berlin by gunshot on 30 April 1945.
Adolf Hitler Dictator of Germany - Deaths of World War II: Estimated 70 million people died.

Most people have mild flu like illness and recover in about two weeks. More severe illness may take three to six weeks depending on the condition of the patient; the elderly have been hit hardest. Shame that so many are fearful when there's little need ...
3-17-20, Federalist.com --Scientists and patients are rightly demanding answers as to why the WHO coddles dictators instead of holding them accountable and acknowledging the seriousness of the threat.

China’s near-total takeover of the WHO comes at a sharp human cost, as the world is tragically now realizing; but despite China buying off most WHO officials, the core and plurality of its funding comes from U.S. taxpayers. More from Federalist here

Signs and Seasons, Days and Years
God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, for seasons, for days and years.”
3-1-20, Henry Morris, PhD -- The subject of “time” is enigmatic [aka mysterious]. Everyone seems to know what is meant by time, but no one can define it. We may complain about time going too slow or too fast, but time doesn’t go anywhere; but neither does it “stand still.”
At least we can measure time intervals—seconds, hours, centuries, etc. This is because of God’s gracious forethought in His creation of the earth's rotation for doing this. He was not a “blind watchmaker,” as some evolutionists have called Him.
Almighty God actually created time “in the beginning.” (Genesis 1:1)
- Then He set the sun and the moon in the sky making the earth to assume a global shape and to rotate on an axis thus creating the measurement of time in “days” possible.
- Next He placed stars in the far heavens in various locations and combinations and the earth to orbit around the sun, enabling us to tell how many “days” make up a “year.”
- Then, once the earth’s rotational axis was “tilted,” that made “seasons” measurable. So we can at least identify time durations in days and years with their seasons, and we can subdivide or combine these in whatever ways we find convenient (minutes, decades, summer, winter, etc.).
The controversial question about 'signs' of the seasons has been answered by certain ancient Jewish scholars. They believed that God named the stars and their groupings (Isaiah 40:26; Job 38:31-32; etc.) and then revealed their prophetic meanings to patriarchs Seth and Enoch in order to record His great plan and purpose in creation permanently in the heavens. Jeremiah 31:35
