Rickards: The Great Reset Is Here...
2-26-21, James Rickards -- The Bretton Woods conference of 1944 set the global financial system that still prevails today.
The period 1969-1971 can be regarded as the First Reset, which involved the creation of Special Drawing Rights (SDR, ticker:XDR), the devaluation of the dollar and the end of the gold standard.
For years, commentators have discussed the next global monetary realignment, which is sometimes called The Big Reset or The Great Reset. [..]
You cannot put negative interest rates on consumers until you eliminate cash. Otherwise, savers would just withdraw cash from the banks and stuff it in mattresses to avoid the negative rates. Implicitly, the European Central Bank [ECB] seems to agree.
One of the ECB Board members says that negative rates (really confiscation) will be applied as a “penalty” against “hoarding” cash. In plain English, that means they will create digital money, force you to spend it, and if you don’t spend it, they will take it away as a “negative rate.”
Now all of the pieces of the global elite plan are converging. The International Monetary Fund [IMF] Special Drawing Rights [SDR] issuance will reliquify global central banks that cannot print dollars. Then Central Bank Digital Currencies [CBDC] will be used to eliminate cash. More here
BREAKING - A global outage affecting Visa and Mastercard
2-26-21 -- InvestmentWatch -- BREAKING - A global outage affecting Visa and Mastercard; the American credit score system has reached peak stupidity. Apparently you can pay money to raise your credit score now. 140 Years of monetary History in 10 Minutes; Federal Judge strikes down eviction moratorium…GET OUT!
2-26-21, VISA and MASTERCARD are suffering what is being described as a "global outage" for anyone trying to use one of the cards to purchase anything, anywhere! Just two days after the United States Federal Reserve reported a total outage of its FedWire and FedACH systems, which halted all money transfers between banks inside the Untied States, now the two major bank card systems are also suffering an "outage." Clearly, something is wrong in the global financial system.
These "outages" while brief, are signaling something is afoot. As with the Fed outage the other day, this web site recommends you have CASH MONEY on-hand to tie you over this weekend, just in case. Head to an ATM and get some cash. Tank-up the fuel in your vehicle(s). None of this is hard, or expensive, or difficult. But if you find yourself suddenly without bank cards to use . . . because their systems are down globally . . . then you'll be in a hard place without cash money. https://tinyurl.com/wv88wraw
The Fed's system that allows banks to send money ...
2-24-21, CNBC.com -- The Fed's system went down for several hours; the system electronically went down for several hours Wednesday, 2/24/21 but came back online later in the afternoon.
2-26-21, Nick Fleming -- When the Federal Reserve [FR] went down (all over the MSM news) at 10 AM EST Wed 24 Feb and was brought back up about 3pm EST, the military taking down the FR was in order to remove the last vestiges of the old Deep State SWIFT system completely, and they were completely cutting out Deep State bankers (Rothschilds, Rockefeller's, Goldman Sachs, and all the usual bankster suspects) and they were merging the QFS  system with the restored Republic NESARA-compliant  UST banking system, leaving only minor logistics being worked out now to complete the process; the QFS is being called by the banks the RTP Real Time Payment system 
World Report: Last Days Perilous Times
The Apostle Paul said: "This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, high minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth."

God Created Heaven and Earth
"'God saw that it was good."
"God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good. v12 The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, after their kind; and God saw that it was good. v18 and to govern the day and the night, and to separate the light from the darkness; and God saw that it was good. v21 God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarmed after their kind, and every winged bird after its kind; and God saw that it was good. v5 God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good. v31 God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day." Genesis 1:10, 12, 18, 21, 25, 31
1 Timothy 4:4
"For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with gratitude;"
"As for God, His way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: He is a buckler to all those that trust in Him."
"Behold, I have found only this, that God made men upright, but they have sought out many devices [schemes].”

Other parts of the South saw thunder snow and reports of something that seemed like a snow tornado but wasn’t. Snow fell hard not just in Chicago, but in Greece and Turkey, where it’s far less normal. Record cold also hit Europe this winter, earning the name the “Beast from the East.” Victor Gensini of Northern Illinois University meteorology professor said: "We’ve had everything you could possibly think of in the past week parts of the U.S. have been 50 degrees colder than normal.

Nick's Intel Update concerning the RV/GCR, Feb 13 2021
Our military intel contact said MEGA-ANTICIPATION MODE CONTINUES today Sat 13 Feb.
He is confirming Mr. Fleming’s sources saying that T4B notifications would be coming out after the Senate Impeachment Trial clown show concluded, our guy said orders went out to start our T4B notifications some time in the next 24-to-48-or-more-hours (intentionally vague for security). So our guy is confirming:
- MarkZ’s sources and Texas Snake’s separate sources all reporting that (1) whales [holders of large amounts of currencies] were told the day before yesterday Thu 11 Feb to pack their bags and be ready to travel at a moment’s notice as early as this weekend (13-14 Feb) to start exchanging, and (2) Snake’s banking exchange center sources reporting that several large tranches of funds had been moved as of yesterday Fri afternoon 12 Feb for the shotgun liquidity start which is STILL IMMINENT
- the funds movement on Thu and Fri 11-12 Feb to start the higher level bond seller liquidity release which would lead to downstreaming of funds to all lower level tiers T1-4 from this Mon 15 Feb onward
- and watching for T4B notifications any time over the next 24-to-48-or-more-hours as the shotgun liquidity start is initiated, now that the Senate Impeachment trial clown show is over. And he said GET YOUR EXCHANGE / REDEMPTION FILES READY TO TAKE TO YOUR APPOINTMENTS and get your PROJECT OUTLINE PRESENTATION WARMED UP AND PRACTICED for the higher contract rates–YOUR TIME IS HERE AND IS UPON YOU.
- that prayers appreciated that all goes forward without any interference, as the Chinese Elders wanted the RV shotgun start done for the Chinese New Year celebrations that started yesterday Fri 12 Feb
- the 900 active military personnel working on getting the RV /GCR out the door said earlier this past week that THEY WOULD FULFILL THEIR MISSION TO GET THE RV/GCR OUT BY NOW, accd to the mission that was GIVEN THEM BY PRESIDENT TRUMP (still president as confirmed by the Impeachment trial, which constitutionally can only try a CURRENT PRESIDENT OR PUBLIC OFFICE HOLDER and NOT a private citizen) and also given them by the interim military govt led by Gen. John Hyten, vice chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at DoD;
- that Biden could not stop the RV release, even if he wanted too - https://nicksintel.wordpress.com/2021/02/13/02-13-2021-update/

Muzzled & Pleasure in Wickedness
God Gave Them Over?
"They did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
2-7-21, The weekly prophecy update from Ohio by Brother John Haller discusses the fact that both writers Aldous Huxley [1894-1963] and author, George Orwell [1903-1950] had visions of a future time when governments would suppress their people. While each vision was distinctly different, they're both right. See 1 hour 25 min video here
Tory MP lists prayer alongside rape in proposed 'conversion
2/6/21, UK Government called to ban so-called conversion therapy. Writing for The House magazine, Alicia Kearns, MP for Rutland and Melton, said the “fraudulent and abhorrent practice” must be criminalized. “Banning prayer and pastoral care of people with unwanted same-sex attraction or gender confusion would be unacceptable. And parents everywhere will be horrified at the prospect of being threatened with a court order for warning their kids off damaging puberty blockers. They want to exploit public revulsion at claims of ‘corrective rape’ in order to criminalize fundamental Christian practices, and make it illegal for parents to protect their kids. www.christian.org.uk

Freedom Day & the Restored Republic via Global Currency Reset
1-31-21, Judy Byington* -- The US military was/is loyal only to the legal US President Donald J. Trump, who dissolved the bankrupt US Inc and announced the new US Republic Federation on November 2, 2020 – a day before the fraudulent USA 2020 Election. Our military intel contact reports that:
Australia: 'This has all the hallmarks of the world's next major military drama'
1-31-21, SkyNews, Australia -- Sky News Chris Smith reports: “Well what a week it's been for this standoff between China and Taiwan, which we cannot ignore & neither can the USA. From the week Joe Biden was inaugurated, Beijing has ratcheted up their claim to territory in the South China Sea, and of course Taiwan, beyond what we've ever seen since they split.
It is a clear challenge to the US. And if the United States does do something about it, we will be part of that conflict. With the Biden administration stating recently, that their commitment to Taiwan was rock solid, this has all the hallmarks of the world's next major military drama … and that's way too close to us, for comfort.”More here
As US-Taiwan strengthen ties, China warns this means war 
01/31/21, Scott McKay -- On Thu, Jan 28, 2021 U.S. FORCES strengthen ties with Taiwan ... China warns 'Taiwan's independence' means war. This comes a week after a US aircraft carrier strike group led by the USS Theodore Roosevelt entered the So China Sea to promote 'freedom of the seas.'
Our US military intel contact said sources match info that January 31, 2021 is Freedom Day; on a global scale humanity freed from despots, the petty Lords, the Mayors, the sociopaths, all of the tyrants and traitors; from all that embrace dominion and serve Lucifer’s “death cult.”
This successful top secret operation was coordinated among multiple nation states, including US, INDIA, TAIWAN successfully ending the 70 years of brutal domination, with Systemic control of almost 1.5 billion people in every facet of life. China's CCP is no longer in control of the Free People of China. Sovereignty is now in process of being fully restored. The South China Sea is now under the control of the US MILITARY, Taiwan and Hong Kong are free.
The Chinese Communist Party is being dissolved as Trump, Putin, Taiwan, Chinese Chairman Xi and Chinese forces have been coordinating this secret long planned out operation which will place Trump back as POTUS where he belongs after his landslide election win.
God knows we need a WIN! This is a good start. Now we will receive further details throughout the day.

Analysis: President Biden faces a more confident China
1-20-21, BusStandard -- China knows they again have a pal in the White House and is more confident with Joe Biden. A more confident China may push back harder on issues such as technology, territory and human rights. Analysts draw parallels to the 2008 global financial crisis, from which China emerged relatively unscathed under Obama and Biden. The country's foreign policy has grown increasingly assertive...
Biden speaks with France's Macron, agrees to coordinate on Iran
1-24-21, Israel - A president Joe Biden is expected to reconstitute Obama's Iran’s nuclear deal with the terrorist Islamic Republic of Iran that said it was producing 20% enriched uranium, far above the 3.67 percent agreed to in the nuclear deal. In Nov 2020 the IAEA said that Iran had accrued a low-enriched uranium stockpile 12 times that allowed under the 2015 agreement...
Joe Biden once joked about China helping him become president
9-5-20, NewYorkPost -- Biden's "jokes" moment was caught on video still viewable on the Obama White House YouTube page. The then-vice president said: “I’ve had the great pleasure and honor of spending a fair amount of time with China's Vice President. We ended up spending about ten days together, five in each of our countries traveling around, and you get to know someone fairly well.” See quid-pro-quo Joe with Ukraine here where he threatens and promises money ...

1. Be patient
2. Biden canceled two appointments for his 'inauguration' rehearsals
3. It is widely believed that President Trump won the 11/3/20 election by 75% of the vote
4. Pres T flipped California and it's now a red state
5. Pres T has not conceded regardless of what the media says
6. Pres T is in Texas
7. We should expect an update soon
8. Action will be taken before the 20th
9. It's believed that the people behind Biden are preparing an electronic fake illegal inauguration with Justice Roberts using trick photography
10. Simon said he asked his contact: 'won't everyone know it's a fake?' - the speculation is that the media will show Biden driving up to the White House in a car and being refused entrance...
11. Then - it's expected that within 12 hours all fake media networks will be taken down because they carried the fake inauguration
12. Ten days of no communication is expected including cell phones
13. Television broadcasts will be reduced to one channel where court marshals will be shown to the world on a loop
14. People are hugely frustrated and desperate, but we should look at what's already happened:
- look at how the media is portraying the president as not being a normal transition [the hysterical actions by Pelosi and the quick impeachment]
- it's Trump or them ... their way of life vs Americans ... no grey area
- final battle bad guys' major weapon of choice; the wicked media
- China efforts against Trump failed; and Covid virus ...
- the deep seated hatred of Trump ... it's the battle of good vs evil ... you'd have to be insane to do the diabolical things they're doing...
15. This battle goes back to 1963 when Pres Kennedy was killed
16. Many are too optimistic thinking that if Biden is allowed to take power ... 'we'll come back in 4 years' ... there'll be no US military in 4 yrs.
17. Currently Biden hasn't access to anything ...
18. Pres Trump doesn't want armed supporters out on the street ... they don't need it - just sit tight and trust our Pres.
19. We need to understand and appreciate all Pres T has achieved in the past 4 years with so much opposition - it's astonishing. When Pres T says there'll be a smooth transfer of power ... he's talking about transfer from 'HIM' to 'HIM' and Gen Flynn will be offered the position of VP if he wants it. Pres T wants to put the USA back on the gold standard  ... like Kennedy was ... if this happens it'll be a wonderful thing for humanity.
20. It matters not that those around you think you're crazy; just hold on and wait ... we can't afford to be pushed too soon to report the end, but we are right ... we all want justice.

1-13-21, Michael Green From Gregory Ervin:
Dear Patriots: Some of you may recognize my name. I have daily briefing with POTUS and have posted here before a handful of times as a “helper”.
What I’m about to disclose is the most important post you’ll read before the inauguration. Q will not post here again, at least not for a while.
The operation is ongoing but must run silent at this point. Once we wind down you will not hear from Q again. Don’t let this worry or upset you. We are in perhaps the most critical juncture of American history. POTUS is fully aware of the gravity of this time period. We have prepared from before 2015 for this exact moment.
I am not asking for faith in us. Q should have already used logic, reason, and multiple proofs to establish our credibility. What happens this week will change history.
We are asking you for now to stay in your homes and do NOT under any circumstances interfere with the operation. You’ll soon see things unfold that many would think impossible. POTUS is insulated and 100% safe. Our plan is almost complete. The DS has already lost. Everything you’re seeing in the MSM and on Twitter is a last-ditch attempt. Why has Kamala not yet left the senate? Where is Joe? Where is Joe really?
Hunter has turned himself in.
We asked you at the beginning to prepare. Your role is crucial, and your task is to help the population deal with that is about to be revealed. Those patriots who have been here from the start will understand and recognize this directive. Remember, it is always darkest before the dawn.
Do not believe the MSM over the next week. Do not, for a single minute give them any credence. We have legally won this election and what comes next is the greatest mop up job in the history of the world.
Patriots, we thank you. We could not have gotten here without you. Now is our time. Hold the line. You will receive no further message on this channel from us until the operation is over. At that point, the entire world will know.
Thank you and God bless. Pray for us, POTUS, and the United States of America. We are in the most dangerous phase and the stakes could not be higher. Military takedowns and arrests begin this weekend and will continue forward for the next 13 days/nights. Some international raids have already started. Italy has also been found complicit in our election fraud.
Everyone will be getting emergency alerts on their phones, tv's, radios & internet. It will override all other broadcasts and could last for several hours at a time.
Do not to be scared of what's coming as it is for the safety of our nation for this to unfold. DO NOT travel to any large cities (especially Philadelphia) for the rest of the month. Military operations will be taking place in many of the major corrupt cities.
People will start rioting once this intel breaks, thinking Trump is a military dictator. He only has 13 days to put this dog down.
The implementation of the Insurrection Act began after the raid on the Capitol and was marked by Trump's broadcast to the people to disband and return home. This broadcast wound up being blocked, for the most part, by the media. Nevertheless, his address fulfilled the requirements to initiate the Act.
Marines and National Guard troops are being moved as needed for the riots that will start after the national release of the intel. The intel will be dropped for everyone to see and hear in loops that will be several hours long.
The system was just checked by the FCC a few days ago alerting ALL media that they cannot block the flow of intel under federal regs.
Trump will be moved continuously like a chess piece from now until the 20th in order to avoid any retaliation against him and family. https://eraoflight.com/2021/01/13/michael-green-from-gregory-ervin-dear-patriots/
12-18-20, THE PLAN: AMERICA THE CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC - President Trump’s current action apparently is titled: 'PROJECT CAMELOT' ... based on what Simon Parkes reported that since Pres Kennedy's killing in 1963 - so many US Military Generals have been working to overtake the criminals in the US swamp ... so perhaps its a tribute to him?? More here parallel report of Simon Parkes: https://projectcamelotportal.com/2020/12/18/the-plan-america-the-constitutional-republic/ and here
9-15-20, Direct from High - Up Military:
According to the latest schedule everything will be exposed sometime between Sunday and Monday night. The timer has been set for those two particular days. During that time the Emergency Broadcast System [EBS] will be activated. President Trump will send out a message, “My fellow Americans the storm is upon us.” There will be seven presidential text messages sent from him via Air Force One following the message The Storm is Upon Us. That puts us under full global martial law.
Via the EBS, on authorized devices there will be an 8 hour video played 3 times a day in a loop for 10 days straight with video confessions of high profile elite individuals being exposed for their crimes against humanity at their military tribunals. While the video is being played 500,000 plus people will be taken down worldwide. This repeating movie will be extremely painful for most of us because it involves people we thought we could trust committing unthinkable crimes. We understand that no one will be allowed to leave their residence until completion. During this moment in history we will transition to Gesara/Nesara . There will be a full rewiring of planet earth. It is our understanding that media and internet will be shut down.
This is not a transition from President Trump to Biden. It is a transition that President Trump in conjunction with the military have composed restoring things back to we the people. General Flynn is key to the entire plan.
We are preparing for a brand new future where humanity is free from the constraints of former powers. There will finally be a world free of division amongst the people.
Everyone must understand this is serious so please have enough food, water, batteries and necessities for the duration of ten days. It is better to be safe than sorry. You are receiving this message to give you ample time to prepare for what is coming in the next few days.

1-13-21, Statement from the President:

Reportedly the Presidential Inauguration is Cancelled
President Trump Remains in Office
1-14-21, This report parallels with the reports from Simon Parkes and others. Including the fact that there have been assassination attempts on President Trump's life.
This information isn't being reported by the main stream ... and only a few patriot sites have exposed what's going on. If this isn't factual - no harm done - if it is ... we need to be prepared.
I shortened it; I hope I didn't destroy any facts. The links for much of the intel is included. -- Annette
1-14-21, BeforeItsNews -- The Chinese Communist Party [CCP] propaganda media outlets of ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox News, CNN and MSNBC will soon be off the airwaves and Joe Biden’s Inauguration will be cancelled, President Trump will remain in office.
It has been reported that President Trump [POTUS] invoked the Insurrection Act of 1807 (Section 10 U.S. Code 13 251-255) to address the treasonous rebellion conducted by Democrat and Republican lawmakers, CCP, FBI, Dept of Justice, CIA and others to dismantle the United States of America and it’s Constitution.
According to US Intel, on Sat, Jan 9, 2021 POTUS invoked the Insurrection Act after another assassination attempt. [..] Since then the US has been under an abbreviated Marshal Law with POTUS as Commander in Chief and General Mike Flynn in charge of the Military. As such POTUS has signed multiple Executive Orders that among other powers, allowed for Military arrests and Tribunals.
Soon to be acted upon are appx 222,286 sealed indictments against political cabal and global elites filed in federal courts across the nation.  By law with the Insurrection Act in effect, POTUS would remain in office indefinitely until all domestic enemies were arrested[..]. According to Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy, currently there are appx 20,000 US troops in DC; Special Forces units have covertly infiltrated Antifa and Black Lives Matter and made silent covert arrests.  [..]
During President Trump’s four years in office he and what has been referred to as The Alliance have been fighting this wicked cabal – a Satan worshipping force composed of thirteen Satanist Bloodline families out of Italy, the Vatican, UK Monarchy, British M16, Chinese Communist Party, CIA, FBI, Dept of Justice, Antifa, Black Lives Matter and certain Republican and Democrat lawmakers. Another attempt on POTUS life was the last straw.
The Alliance was composed of USA President Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Iraqi Prime Minister Mustafa Al-Kadhimi, India Prime Minister Narendra Modi, White Hats in the Dept of Defense headed by Sec of Defense Chris Miller, Undersec of Defense Intel Ezra Cohen Watnick and Gen. Michael T Flynn, Q (composed of around 800 special ops who advise POTUS including Pentagon Generals Chairman Joint Chief Mark Milley, Vice Chief John Hyten, Gen. James McConville, Adm. Michael Gilday, Gen. C.Q. Brown, Gen. Paul Nakasone and Gen. Jay Raymond), QAnons (volunteer Patriots headed by JF Kennedy Jr.), the Natl Sec Agency and various militaries across the globe in SOF Units, including the international force authorized to make arrests in any country, Interpol, plus the US Marines, National Guard and Special Ops Units. 
A corrupt Mass Media has refused to report anything, but their Left Wing agenda believed paid for by CCP. Thus, POTUS has announced he would soon activate the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS). This was expected during what has been referred to as Ten Days of Darkness, or media outage. Alerts will go out on citizens telephones. Robert David Steele and Juan O. Savin  explained that Intel providers “May not be settled until April 1, 2021; anyone including Fox, who refuses to broadcast POTUS reports faces loss of their FCC licenses as well as criminal punitive actions, perhaps a military takeover.”
On Wed. Jan 13, 2021, from the Oval Office, POTUS gave an urgent message to the American people calling for peace. Intel sources were reporting that riots were planned in DC and across the nation. He condemned the rioters at the state capitol, as well as a recent assault by Social Media on our Freedom of Speech and then activated military forces to quell unrest. [..] As part of that plan POTUS’s Space Force has been involved in worldwide blackouts in multiple countries as Alliance Special Force units to multiple arrests were conducted, including Frankfurt Germany – home of the CIA office where Dominion Voting machines illegally changed the votes in 2020 election from President Trump to Biden.
Over last weekend French and Russia Alliance military leaders’ Special Force units took out Deep Staters in Italy [**], Pakistan, Berlin and Paris. By the first of the week they had moved to Iran  where they caused Blackouts in order to target global and regional terrorism. By Tues. Jan 12. the White House had launched the National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Office. This officially activated Space Force and it’s Quantum Computer that would put us and the world on the Gold Standard, provide a transparent and instantaneous Quantum Voting System for our first Restored Republic Election in March 2021, plus provided the platform for a top secret Global Broadcast Satellite Program that could override all TV screens for POTUS’s worldwide addresses.
On January 11, 2021 POTUS activated FEMA issuing a new emergency declaration  as an violence exists in DC and ordered Federal assistance to supplement the District’s response efforts due to emergency conditions.
In the coming weeks there may be food and supply shortages, on-off power outages, communication, media and social media, plus ATM and credit card transaction disruptions. Be prepared. [..]

The Insurrection Act was Signed Last Night
“This is not a drill”
1-10-21, Simon Parkes -- At 6:25 pm on 1-9-21 President Trump [POTUS] signed "The Insurrection Act." 
Potus had to exhaust all legal means to over come the election fraud/treason before this operation could commence. He gave everyone a fair chance to come clean and they refused. He fulfilled the legal requirement Wednesday Jan 6, 2021 in his TV request telling rioters and his supporters “go home in peace . . . We have to have peace; we have to have law and order” per 10 USC Section 254 is called “Proclamation to disperse.”  
Canadian border, Coast Guard, Navy, air space watching for private planes and border agencies for alleged criminals trying to escape.
Now that President Trump's social media and emails have been cut off; he will either use patriot blog sites to communicate his message or the Emergency Broadcasting System.

President Trump and family are in secure locations being moved around until the 20th to avoid any terror attacks against him and family. There will be much confusion over the coming 10 days until the Wednesday, 20 January Trump's Inauguration that will probably be in the White House and not in the Capitol Building. In his speech and press release on 1/7/21 of a “smooth transition” - he did not include the word, “concede” as he has no plans to do so. Rather, there will be a smooth transition of power to his new cabinet, staff and Vice President, General Flynn.

A Rare ‘Triple Conjunction’ Of Planets As Our Brightest Star Sparkles: What You Can See In The Night Sky Jan 4-10, 2021
Sunday, January 10, 2021: Jupiter, Saturn and Mercury in ‘triple conjunction’
About 45 minutes after sunset it will be possible to see—if you’re quick and have a good, low view of the southwestern horizon--Jupiter, Saturn and tiny Mercury form a triangle. You’ll likely need binoculars to see this one. They’re going to be just 1.6° apart, though it would be wise to look a couple of nights before and after to watch the planets move each night since they’ll be relatively close to each other all this week.

Currently Forty-Three Worldwide Volcanic Eruptions
"The sun and the moon shall be darkened and the stars shall withdraw their shining."
Joel 3:15; Isaiah 40:4; Revelation 6:14
12-2-20, Although detailed statistics are not kept on daily activity of the world’s volcanic eruptions, generally there are approximately twenty volcanoes normally erupting on any particular day. 
Currently there are forty-three of the world’s 1500 volcanoes erupting.
Who can deny that the smoke from wildfires and volcanoes darken the sun and the moon? Joel 2:10, 30-31; Isaiah 13:10; Amos 8:9; Ezekiel 32:7; Acts 2:20
There have been at least 5 major volcanic explosions in the last three days.

The COMING STORM
“Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked. The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until He has done it and until he have performed the intents of His heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.”
4-1-2010, * -- When a sleeping child must be awakened, a loving parent takes him by the shoulders and gently shakes him. If the child doesn't wake up immediately, the shaking becomes a bit firmer. The parent insists, because he knows the child will suffer if he doesn't wake up on time.
That’s precisely what God is now doing to America and the world. At first, He shook us very tenderly, but now His shaking has become violent, because we refuse to awaken.
In the late 1980’s the Lord’s shaking of the earth began with earthquakes. A quake in Armenia wiped out almost that entire province. A quake in Japan measuring 6.9 nearly destroyed an entire city. Then came the horrible quake in San Francisco, with more following almost daily in that area. Quakes hit the West Coast constantly, from northern California to San Diego and down into Mexico. [On Mar 11, 2011 Japan had the horrific 9.1 quake and tsunami that destroyed their nuclear plant; causing radiation in the Pacific ocean.
In the Old Testament we read in Isaiah 24:1, 11, 13 the prophecy that God will one day shake the earth as if it were an olive tree-till every bit of fruit falls.
"Behold, the Lord maketh the earth empty . . . and turneth it upside down. . . All joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone... When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree."
The prophet Ezekiel reports that when God's fury arises, He will shake all that can be shaken: "All the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown
down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. . . . And I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the Lord." (Ezekiel 38:20 and 23)
The writer of Hebrews [may be Luke] says: "Yet once more I shake not the earth only, but also heaven. . . . That [only] those things which cannot be shaken may remain" (Hebrews 12:26-27).
God is going to shake everything in sight so that He is revealed as the only unshakable power! He said, “I am God, there is none else!”
*Excerpted and adapted original message from the Late David Wilkerson here
"Why do the heathen rage & the people imagine a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves & the rulers take counsel together against the Lord against His anointed, saying: 'Let us break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from us.' He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Then shall he speak unto them in His wrath & vex them in His sore displeasure. Yet have I set My king upon My holy hill of Zion. I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, 'Thou art My Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of Me & I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance & the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel. Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth. Serve the Lord with fear & rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He be angry & ye perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him'."
11-15-20, This installment of John Haller's weekly prophecy update describes how Americans are on the verge of witnessing the complete and utter breakdown of western society in the wake of a contentious election that appears to be rife with massive and coordinated fraud.
We, as followers of Christ, must be steadfast in our faith and belief, knowing that God is behind the scenes weaving an intricate tapestry of events that will bring Him glory.
Being "Undecided" is never a good position. Jesus tells us that the lukewarm will be spit out of His mouth. Revelation 3:16 Everyone must decide their belief or non belief in the Savior Jesus Christ. Indecision is just as lethal as rejection. John 3:18
Wicked attacks on believers are ramping up as the world gets ever closer to a final judgment when there will be no mistake in what is right and wrong and all evil deeds will be exposed. Isaiah 5:20; Job 27:10

~~ Interesting World History ~~
From 1842 to 1997 Hong Kong, China was known as: 'British Hong Kong'
Amazing considering they're appx 6,000 miles apart
Hong Kong includes 426 square miles of territory in the South China Sea. Hong Kong was first incorporated into China in 243 BC, during the Warring States period and as the Qin state was beginning to grow in power. It remained almost constantly under Chinese control for the next 2,000 years. Today one of the most densely occupied and economically independent parts of the world and for decades was ruled by Britain.
In 1842, under British Queen Victoria's expansionist rule, Hong Kong became known as British Hong Kong. On June 9, 1898, the British brokered a ninety-nine year lease agreement for the use of Hong Kong after China lost a series of wars fought over the British trade in tea and opium. The lease came about as a result of wars over trade imbalances, opium and the shifting power of Queen Victoria's British empire.
In 1984, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and Chinese Premier Zhao Ziyang negotiated the underlying plan for the lease to end, such that Hong Kong would remain a semi-autonomous region for a 50-year period after the lease ended.
After the agreement, Britain began to implement a broader level of democracy in Hong Kong. The first democratic government in Hong Kong was formed in the late 1980s, consisting of functional constituencies and direct elections. While the People's Republic of China rejected the democratization of Hong Kong, the region had become enormously lucrative. Hong Kong only became a major metropolis after the British possession, and during the 150+ years of the occupation, the city had grown and thrived.
The stability of those changes became doubtful after the Tiananmen Square incident (Beijing, China, June 3–4, 1989) when an undetermined number of protesting students were massacred. Half a million people in Hong Kong went on marches to protest.
On July 1, 1997, the event that has been dreaded and anticipated by the residents of Hong Kong, Chinese, English and world came. The government of Great Britain transferred control of British Hong Kong and the surrounding territories back to the People's Republic of China. More here
Focus Your Mind
“Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.”
Friends, this world is not your home, so don’t make yourselves cozy in it. Don’t indulge your ego at the expense of your soul. Live an exemplary life among the natives so that your actions will refute their prejudices. Then they’ll be won over to God’s side and be there to join in the celebration when he arrives.
1 Peter 2:11-12; Colossians 3:2
11-4-20, The command of this verse is contained in the Greek word phroneo. The noun form has an emphasis on the emotive side of our thoughts. Its use in secular Greek literature favors what we might call our gut reactions or our intuition. Obviously, the verb is recorded in the imperative mode, making the term both intensive and authoritative. It could well be translated “direct your reactions so that they respond to” heavenly matters.
The Lord Jesus rebuked Peter because he did not “savor” the things of God (Matthew 16:23). In many other places, the translators have chosen “mind” as the term’s best rendering (e.g., Philippians 2:2, 5; 3:15-16; 4:2). But in each case, the emphasis appears to be on the way we react to our relationship to God’s Word or to each other.
And in each case, as in our text for today, [Colossians 3:2] the emphasis is always for us to focus on the matters of eternity, not on our earthly circumstances.
Paul’s great teaching throughout Romans 6:1, 7:1, and 8:1 gives a wonderful comparison and contrast between the flesh and the spirit, concluding in chapter 8:5 that “they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit” (Romans 8:5).
Insisting that the believers in the Philippian church follow his own life’s example, Paul agonizes over many among them who walk so “that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.” (Philipians 3:18-19-20)
A worldly lifestyle is very dangerous for a born again believer in Christ. Please remember the warning “whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God” (James 4:4).

An Especially Evil Day in the World
The Lord Jesus said: Whoever confesses Me before men, them will I confess before My Father which is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, them will I also deny before My Father. Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword setting a man at variance against his father, daughter against mother & daughter in law against mother in law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household. Those are not worthy of Me who: loveth father or mother more than Me -- loveth son or daughter more than Me -- they that taketh not his cross, and followeth after Me -- They that loses their life for My sake shall find it.
11-1-20, Brother John Haller in Ohio USA speaks about world events from this past week. We are approaching a point of no return. Will we travel over the edge into an abyss of darkness from which nothing can escape, or choose wisely and take a different course to temporarily delay the inevitable judgment that is coming?

Venice, Italy: 'The Floating City'
Inflatable Flood Barriers Save City
Venice's Controversial Inflatable Floodgates Save City for the Second Time
10-19-20, Smithsonian -- The city of Venice declared a state of emergency when it experienced its worst floods in 50 years. This time, the high tide could have wreaked havoc on the small island, but the barrier system of 78 floodgates—known as Mose [named after Bible's Old Testament 'MOSES'] — successfully kept Venice's winding alleyways and historic squares clear. The barriers are designed to stay at the bottom of the lagoon until they are activated, at which point they fill with air and then rise to the surface.
10-19-20, The Guardian -- Venice, Italy began in the 5th century AD and is known as the ‘Floating City’ as it consists of 118 small islands connected by numerous canals and bridges. The buildings were not built directly on the islands; they were built on wooden platforms that were supported by wooden stakes driven into the ground.
On October 3, 2020 Venice’s new MOSE inflatable barrier system protected the city for the first time from high tides and severe flooding by blocking the water from surging into the lagoon and over the island. They shielded Venice from a 4.6-foot tide that could have flooded half the city.
The large yellow inflated walls rise from bottom and seal off three of the lagoon’s inlets, shielding the island from high tides. The Architect’s Newspaper reports that the barriers can handle floods of up to ten feet. So far the success of the new floodgates still have some saying they aren't a sustainable solution and that it could have serious environmental ramifications. They contend that when the barriers rise, they seal off the lagoon from the rest of the ocean, turning a free-flowing channel into a closed-off swamp and this barrier will deplete the water’s oxygen levels and prevent pollution from flowing out of the channels.

Islamic Terror Cells & ANTIFA Are Similar Organizations
Says former Police Sgt Betsy Brandner Smith of Chicago
10-30-20, TrulyTimes -- According to the Natl Police Assoc spokesperson from Chicago retired Sgt. Betsy Brandner Smith: “Antifa is more than just an idea, Antifa has quite a history, going back to the 20s and 30s and Hitler’s brown shirts and then we come into the anarchists of the 60s through to today.”
She also said, “The left likes to be able to go to a blue-checked Twitter account and say ‘okay, this guy’s the head of Antifa.’ That’s now how it works [..] just because we don’t have a paramilitary structure for Antifa, doesn’t mean they don’t exist and doesn’t mean they’re not dangerous. What we have to do is look at their actions. For example, we have dealt with for quite a while in this country, going back to radical Islam, these lone-wolf terrorists who, are they a lieutenant or a captain in ISIS? No, that’s how we have to look at Antifa. Do they follow the beliefs of Antifa, do they dress like Antifa, are they mobilized as part of Antifa. And that’s what we’re seeing and I think we’re about to see it again this weekend.
“We’ve got a couple of things brewing in this country, the National Guard has been activated in Minnesota, we may also get the grand jury results in the Jacob Blake shooting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, and if those things happen and people start to riot because of those decisions that are made, or were made in Minneapolis today, you’re going to see Antifa mobilize. And people need to start paying a lot more attention to that and it’s dangerous to the American public.”
Sgt Smith also said: “they need to be able to engage in peaceful protests” and noted that the country had seen many peaceful protests in the recent Black Lives Matter movement, the “radical Marxist arm of Black Lives Matter incorporated has now hooked up with Antifa and now they don’t peacefully protest; they burn, they loot, they riot. We have, depending on the area of the country we are talking about, we have a law enforcement that is afraid of Antifa, [the media] are in bed with the left, and so they don’t want to show these non-peaceful protests. The American public is being deceived, we all know that, by the legacy media. And law enforcement officers are the victims of it.”
Smith called on law enforcement to arrest Antifa members for violating the law and to prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. And every police leader in the country needs to video tape and document the “mostly peaceful protests” and show the American public what’s really happening, after noting that law enforcement members were being put in danger during the riots which were the media is reporting as “peaceful.”
In August 2020 Attorney General William Barr described Antifa as a “revolutionary group” intent on establishing socialism or communism in the United States. Barr said the group is “essentially Bolsheviks”—a radical, far-left, and revolutionary Marxist faction that toppled Tsarist Russia 100 years ago. [..] More Washington Post here

There is more than one meaning that is attached to the phrase Global Currency Reset. A standard definition would be a return to a global currency system that all nations would agree upon. The last time nations gathered together to agree upon a new global currency system was in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire. While World War II was still going on leaders from nations around the world decided on a new global currency system. This led to the formation of global organizations like the International Monetary Fund in 1945 and GATT, which later became the World Trade Organization.

Middle East Braces for Joe Biden Win
10-15-20, Bloomberg -- The leaders who benefited most from Trump's uniquely friendly White House are locking in their gains as a possible change in leadership may occur. In 2016 when businessman from New York Donald Trump arrived in the White House, Islamic terror group ISIS still controlled swaths of Iraq and Syria. The Arab-Israeli peace process was frozen and the Iran deal had put America’s Arab allies on the defensive. From Egypt to Saudi Arabia, trust was low after Obama endorsed the 2011 uprisings against U.S.-allied nations. Now under Trump the Middle East is a different place. In 2018 he withdrew from the Obama-negotiated Iran pact, reinstating sanctions in a maximum pressure that irked European partners but pleased Iran’s Arab & Jewish rivals. Trump’s decision to assassinate a top Iranian commander hit its regional operations without eliciting the retaliation some critics warned of. ISIS was defeated and Trump’s commitment to withdraw troops from Syria and Iraq is underway.
Biden Would Reinstate Iran Deal
10-17-20, Counterfire -- In September, 2020 former Democrat VP Joe Biden said he hoped to reinstate the Iran nuclear deal. Since President Trump on May 8, 2018 withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) [Iran nuclear deal], the US has engaged in a campaign of crippling sanctions against Iran. On Oct 8, 2020 as part of this “maximum pressure” policy Pres Trump's White House announced that it was blacklisting the entire Iranian banking system. This action will lock Iran out of the global financial system and will have a chilling effect on Iran’s economy. [..]
Whoever holds the keys to the White House the future relationship with Iran looks set to be more continuity than change. A Biden presidency may be more predictable and less provocative than a second Trump term, but without a significant shake up in Congress and a shift in Biden’s view on the politics of the Middle East, today’s precarious relationship is set to continue.

Both Biden's and Trump's Iran policies raise concerns in Israel
10-16-20, JerusalemPost -- The UN arms embargo on Iran was meant to expire on Sunday, October 18, 2020 but in August 2020 the US activated “snapback sanctions,” a mechanism in Obama's 2015 Iran deal [aka JCPOA] that would cancel its “sunset clauses” that would lift various sanctions on the Islamic Republic. Since Pres Trump, in May 2018, left the Iran Deal, the other parties to the agreement say the US does not have the authority to reinstate sanctions, and they will view the embargo as lifted on Sunday, 10/18/20. However, the US argues that sanctions and the snapback are part of UN Security Council Resolution 2331, which lists the US specifically as a party, and not just the JCPOA. All of this is to say that next week there could be a showdown between Russia and China, who want to sell Iran weapons ...The Iranian nuclear program and its ongoing violations of the JCPOA are expected to stay in a holding position at least until after the US presidential election on November 3, 2020. Before making their next move, the Iranians want to know whether US President Donald Trump will be reelected...
UN arms embargoes on Iran expire despite US objections
10-18-20, APNews -- TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A decade-long U.N. arms embargo on Iran that barred it from purchasing foreign weapons like tanks and fighter jets ... However, Iran’s economy remains crippled by broad-reaching U.S. sanctions, and other nations may avoid arms deals with Tehran for fear of American financial retaliation. The Trump administration has warned that any sales of weapons to Iran or exports from Iran will be penalized.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo flatly rejected the expiration.
“The United States is prepared to use its domestic authorities to sanction any individual or entity that materially contributes to the supply, sale, or transfer of conventional arms to or from Iran, as well as those who provide technical training, financial support and services, and other assistance related to these arms. For the past 10 years, countries have refrained from selling weapons to Iran under various U.N. measures. Any country that now challenges this prohibition will be very clearly choosing to fuel conflict and tension over promoting peace and security.”
