Will Obama & the U.S. Help the Kurds Fight ISIS?
8-4-14, NewYorker -- The U.S. can help the one group that is trying hardest to resist ISIS: the Kurds.
They occupy a large swath of northeastern Iraq [and Syria, 2019], standing face to face with the Islamic terror group called 'Islamic State' or ISIS across a six-hundred-mile frontier.
The Kurds are among America’s best friends in the Middle East; they are pro-Western, largely secular, and largely democratic. Rumors give way to real fears amid an empowered Kurdish military that the ethnic group may wish to break away from the Iraqi state. Regional powers in Turkey, Syria and Iran have expressed further concern that could create a chain reaction wherein Kurds in those countries demand similar independent rights.
[Note: Strange that in 2019 the mantra about who's helping who ... has become the Kurds helping the US ... when in 2014 the US was helping the Kurds.]
Who Are the Kurds and Why Should the USA Help Them?
11-26-14, USNews.com -- When Obama was running the wars in the Middle East the question was WHY help the Kurds ... few complained. The true desires of the Kurdish ethnic group who dwell within the borders of several nations' regional powers are hidden beneath the urgent and deadly business of defeating the Islamic State group [ISIS]. One Baghdad native tells U.S. News: “They’re working hard to push women into the dark ages, working hard to stop building schools and soccer fields, but to keep building mosques, there's growing momentum in the Kurdish capital of Irbil against non-Muslim traditions, such as alcohol sales from Christian shop owners and restaurateurs. Women are being forced to cover themselves in accordance with conservative Muslim rules and a growing number of hardliners are being elected to the Kurdish parliament." Has the U.S. engaged in another marriage of convenience in the Middle East that could prove a costly divorce one day down the road?
The Apostle Paul said, "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. For I am now ready to be offered and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord Jesus, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing."
11-10-19, This week's prophecy update by John Haller is chock full of the world's news ... Islam, Israel, Homosexuality, Turkey, Syria, Germany, Iran... The world is bound up in a plethora of problems; and while it seems that confusion abounds, that confusion only exists in the mind of men who do not seek the wisdom of God. Instead they choose to supplant His Word for their own arrogant and prideful aspirations in their feeble pursuit of dominance and power.
Regardless of how tangled and bound up world events seem, they will unfurl and unfold just as God has planned eventually proclaiming the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ and His protection of the Jewish state of Israel. Ezekie 37:21

Why 2020 US Presidential Race Will Be Costliest in History
2-14-19, VOANews -- By the best available estimates, the 2016 presidential elections cost $2.4 billion when spending by candidates & various interest groups are combined. By all accounts, it would have been much more except for Donald Trump’s unique campaign strategy, which relied in large part on “earned” (read: free) media coverage rather than paid advertisements. [..] Many politicians have spoken up against the pernicious influence of money in politics, bemoaning the hours daily spent on the phone, speaking to potential donors. The practice is so common, in Wash DC it's derisive nickname is “Dialing for Dollars.” The Supreme Court has ruled time & again that limits on campaign spending are, broadly speaking, in conflict with the Constitutional guarantee of free speech.
Pres Trump Exceeds $100 million for 2020 re-election
10-16-18, NBCNews -- In 2016 candidate businessman Donald Trump paid for his presidential campaign with personal funds an estimated $66 million. This time in 2019 so far he has raised more than $100 million toward his re-election.
How Much of His Own Money Donald Trump Spend in 2016?

Mrs Clinton spent $565 million of others' contributions; she had 280 fund raising events.
Prophecy Update: What Is the Future of Israel?
Does She have Hope for Survival?
"God built His sanctuary like high palaces, like the earth which He hath established forever."
11-9-19, * -- The Jewish nation of Israel is tiny; smaller than the US state of New Jersey. [Israel's land is approximately 8,019 sq mi, including 172 sq mi of inland water] with appx 8 million occupants. She's trying to exist in an area of the Middle East surrounded by 22 enemy Islamic nations [Iran alone is appx 636,000 sq miles] of over 300 million people who're determined to destroy it.
However, the nation of Israel will continue to exist forever; it matters little how many people want to destroy it.
The Holy Bible explains God’s plan for the Jewish State of Israel and it’s quite a different picture than what the world seems to believe; end time Bible expert’s opinions  follow:
… Israel’s remnant of the Jews who remain alive will look at Him whom they have pierced their Messiah the Lord Jesus Christ, they will mourn for Him as one who mourns for an only son. [Romans 11:25] All the cursing of the Jews will turn to blessing; they will become exactly what God created them to do, which is to be kings, priests representatives of the Lord Jesus.
… There will be a concluding Arab-Israeli War prophesied in Psalm 83:2 followed by the Gog and Magog Invasion of Ezekiel 38:1 & 39:2 both of those would be predominately Islamic coalition of nations coming against Israel. Apparently a genocide will take place of two-thirds of the Jews will be cut off; but, a faithful remnant of a third of the Jews will survive. Zechariah 13:8
... After the Christian Church is taken out at the Rapture, Israel is going to undergo severe persecutions. Luke 17:34-37; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
… From a pre-Rapture view, Israel is going to become more and more hated and more and more isolated she will have no friends not even the USA who has been forcing Israel to do things that they don't want to do ... like giving up God’s land when HE directly said that no one is to force them to relinquish [Genesis 26:2-3]. Zechariah 12:1-3 says Jerusalem will become a cup of trembling and a burdensome stone to the whole world, and certainly we see that developing. [See also Zech 14:2]
The Jewish nation will serve as the prime nation of the world and through it all God's blessings will flow to the other nations.
This is why God’s word says:
"…Let us go with you, for we know that God is with you!"

Scientific Study Confirms Trump IS RIGHT
11-13-18, En-Volve.com -- PresTrump blasted poor land management as a cause of the continual California wildfires. Annually billions of dollars are given yet so many lives are lost, all because of gross mismanagement of the forests. The 2018 “Camp Fire” has almost completely obliterated the Northern California town of Paradise; it’s now officially the deadliest fire in California history; over 40 people died. According to the USDA Forest Service, there are an estimated 129 million dead trees over a territory of 8.9 million acres across California. And this doesn’t even account for the shrubs and brush that have been the primary contributors to the most recent fires. More here
Northern California fires blamed on Power Company PG&E
10-31-19, Fox News -- CNBC reports that equipment from California’s largest utility company, Pacific Gas & Electric Co. (PG&E), recently sparked two fires in the northern part of the state even as the company intentionally shut off power to millions of residents in the area to avoid the risk of more fires. As there is speculation that their equipment during a period of hot, dry weather and high winds sparked fires. The Bethel Island and Oakley fires -- in the San Francisco Bay Area -- started in an area where the company left the power on because it was not seen as a high fire risk.

11-7-19, Canada Free Press - Yes, that’s really YOU, Eric Ciaramella in the photo of mostly sore Democrat losers showing their scorn to the 2016 election of Donald J. Trump as America’s duly elected 45th—on Nov. 9, 2016. Doesn’t that photo prove for once and for all that you had animus for President Trump as far back as the first day after his election?
Caught up in the angst displayed by your close Obama colleagues, did you really think that the Nov. 9, 2016 Daily Mail photo would never resurface—at a time most inconvenient for you? [Strong Delusion, 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12]
Even mentioning your name is not supposed to be kosher, but people are now openly mentioning it—anyway. Fox News management doesn’t get to tell Canada Free Press (CFP) , or other news sites what to do, so that’s why we’re asking.
According to a report Breitbart News, Nov. 6, 2019, “Fox News Channel management have ordered network hosts to refrain from using the alleged name of the so-called “whistleblower” — reported to be Eric Ciaramella — who sparked the House Democrats’ partisan impeachment investigation into President Donald Trump."

DO NOT BRAG OR BOAST ABOUT YOURSELF
"Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Let another man praise thee and not thine own mouth; a stranger and not thine own lips."
11-30-16, * -- King Solomon, the wisest man to ever live (2 Chronicles 1:11-12) wanted the people of God to know that bragging is not a good thing to do. One should not seek to honor one’s self' (Proverbs 25:27) about who you are or what you have.
In Luke 12:16-21 the Lord Jesus told the parable about the certain rich man who said to himself:
"... you have plenty good things laid up for many years ..."
and The Lord told him: "You fool, this very night your life will be demanded from you."
If we brag about what we have, we may not get to enjoy it.
"All such boasting is evil." (James 4:16)
If we arrogantly boast and brag; we are taking credit for what God has allowed, blessed us with or caused to happen. We are leaving God out of the equation. Personal aggrandizement, self-seeking honor and pride can lead to one's downfall.
"We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise. v18 For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom The Lord commends." (2 Corinthians 10:12, 18)
We must be humble, lifting up the Lord and He will lift us up. We should not promote ourselves, promotions are blessing from God and He exalts whom He chooses. (Psalm 75:6-7; Proverbs 3:6)

Weekly Update From Israel’s Amir Tsarfati’s ‘Behold Israel’
The Lord God said to Ezekiel, “Set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him, 3And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal: v55Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and helmet: 6Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.”
11-7-19, * --Major developments related to the prophetic changes in the Middle East this week.
- Israel’s largest gas field, Leviathan, is about to become “hot”, as the giant rig is now completed. By the end of the year, it will start flowing oil towards Egypt, Israel, and Jordan. Recently Tel Aviv-listed gas company Delek Group and Texas-based Noble Energy announced a $520 million deal to acquire the Eastern Mediterranean Gas Co. (EMG) gas pipeline. Their Egyptian partner, Egyptian Natural Gas Holding Company (EGAS), paid $150 million, while Delek and Noble who are the majority stakeholders in the Israeli natural gas fields, Tamar and Leviathan covered the rest. This deal gives the three companies a 39% stake in the pipeline and a way to import gas from Israel to Egypt and beyond.
- Syria: Russia is very frustrated that President Trump isn't evacuating his troops from the Syrian gas and oil fields east of the Euphrates. Pres Trump indicated the successful operation to eliminate al-Baghdadi, that he wanted US oil companies to manage the residual Syrian oil and gas fields. ExxonMobil was specifically mentioned, if such an arrangement were executed, it would probably be performed by a service sector firm, especially one of the mid-size firms, working with Kurdish authorities.
- Turkey’s Erdogan is angry that he can’t find gas or oil in his territorial waters; thus, he invaded into the waters of the Greek side of Cyprus, and that has caused the Cyprian drilling efforts to come to a halt.
- Lebanon has become very unstable financially and politically; thus, oil and gas companies are afraid to sign deals to explore gas and oil there, leaving Israel as the BIG winner in the region. Not only will Israel be the country to receive the gas, but now they can cut new deals.
- Karish natural gas field off Israel’s shore is significantly larger than initially believed. Greek gas producer Energean said that the appraisal of the Karish North discovery in the Mediterranean adds to the 2.4 trillion cubic feet of natural gas discovered at Karish and Tanin fields. They believe it’s an additional 0.9 trillion cubic feet!
As an Israeli, I am a bit concerned that we aren’t out of the political mess yet, even after two lengthy and costly elections. The prospect of a third election is becoming more and more realistic, and unless something super dramatic happens, even a third round of elections won't solve the problem. I guess the collapse of all of the allegations against Netanyahu could be the only miracle to bring about an end to this saga. That being said, as a Bible believer and a lover of the prophetic portion of God’s Word, I receive these rapid changes in the Middle East as nothing short of sheer excitement and joy that the redemption of our bodies from this world is very close.
The Lord God said, “Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them. After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.” Ezekiel 38:7-9

USA Libraries Hosting Homosexuals for LGBTQ Men in 'Drag' Events Reading to Little Kids - Pastor Yaghtin Handcuffed and Arrested
10-14-19, WND.com -- According to the Pacific Justice Institute [PJI] on June 15, 2019 in Spokane Washington USA Pastor Afshin Yaghtin was handcuffed and arrested as he approached the Spokane Library where LGBTQ people dressed in 'drag' would be reading to little kids. It was open to the public yet before Pastor Yaghtin even entered the library he was arrested for protesting. Yaghtin said he was there not to protest, but "to observe the Drag Queen Story Hour event and pray for the parents and children who would be attending." Even before he arrived the police had been separating people they believed were opposed to the event - LGBTQ people were allowed inside those opposed to the event were herded across the street.
Brad Dacus for PJI said: "The 'Pro-LGBTQ' group, as labeled by the officer in charge at the scene, was allowed to remain on the library side of the street, while protestors were forced to stay across the street. The officers determined Pastor Yaghtin's beliefs by his association and support of the individuals calmly expressing their dissent to the event. Based on their determination of Pastor Yaghtin's views, the police officers refused to allow him entry into the public library and arrested him."
"The number of criminal charges being filed against pastors and evangelists across the country in just the last few years should be alarming to every freedom-loving American. This arrest in Spokane is one of the clearest examples yet of viewpoint discrimination, and we will be vigorously contesting the charges. We must be able to peacefully disagree and voice our concerns in public places without fear of arrest and prosecution based on viewpoint." More here

The Creation of the Animals
Vegetarian Diet Before the Flood
God said, "Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth."
In the Holy Bible's book of Genesis creation of both humans and animals occur. Creation and blessing of the whole swarming animal kingdom appears [Genesis 1:20-25]. Then in Genesis 1:26-28 man and woman were created in God’s image and given “dominion” over every other living creature. In Genesis 2:7 we see that God forms man from the dust of the ground and breathes life into “his nostrils” then God created woman from Adam’s rib. [..snip]
Regarding the word dominion and man's control or stewardship of the garden and animals [Genesis 2:15]; many people interpret Genesis 1:29 as emphasizing Adam and Eve’s vegetarian diet, with meat only becoming part of the table after Noah’s escape from the flood.
God told Noah and is family: "Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things." Genesis 9:3
All things were created by almighty God and for Him. Colossians 1:16
Roomba of the Sea - "The Guardian"
Submersible Robot armed with lights, cameras and vacuum to gather up lionfish
The same is true for the lionfish that grow to about 17 inches within the reefs of the western Atlantic Ocean. Stephen Gittings, a coral reef ecologist for the National Marine Sanctuary System reports that: “They can eat fish up to half their body size and a single lionfish can eat dozens of fish in a day. Since no native species prey on lionfish, so not losing very many of them over the course of time so they just dominate and take over.”
This species has red and maroon stripes over its white body. Its natural habitat consists of the coral reef regions of the Indian and Pacific oceans. Recently they are now found off the east coast of Florida in the United States. In 2010 Puerto Rico lionfish sightings were seldom, but the voracious fish are now a pretty common sight even in just 6-8 feet of water. People need to be aware of these dangerous fish and there is a call to 'cull the herd.' They are capable of delivering a painful puncture wound.
A new method to rid the seas of the lionfish is
THE GUARDIAN VACUUM
Like the Roomba Vacuum, "The Guardian" is also a vacuum cleaner—only instead of dust and cat hair, it vacuums up the stunned lionfish into an onboard water tank that can hold up to 20 fish. Once full, the Guardian can return to the surface with its catch. Adam Cantor, director of engineering at Robots Service of Environment [RSE], explains that while many coastal communities in the United States host spearfishing competitions to see who can bag the most lionfish, it’s not enough to prevent the effects of the invasive species on nearby reefs because they breed at a depth of 200-400 feet, which is far past the diving range of humans.

How did Ronald Reagan win 49 states in his 1984?
7-18-18, Ronald Reagan was an extremely popular president with all but extreme far left voters that were Democrat Mondale's base. Therefore, Mondale only won his home state of Minnesota while Reagan won in a landslide of 49 states even in deep blue Democrat states. Historically, only two presidential candidates won 49 states - both REPUBLICAN Reagan in 1984 & Nixon in 1972.
States Won By Candidates Reagan, Nixon, Trump, Obama ...
No one has won all 50 states, but twice 49 out of the 50. The first time happened in the 1972 presidential election between Republican Richard Nixon & Dem George McGovern. Nixon won 520 electoral votes, McGovern 17 only from Massachusetts & Washington D.C. In 1984 Ronald Reagan beat Mondale. In 2016 Republican Donald Trump won 30 states, Mrs Clinton 20. In 2008 Obama won 28 states; in 2012 only 26.
Let’s be clear-eyed about Turkey
10-13-19, PowerLine -- Two things can be true: (1) President Trump's decision to pull back U.S. forces in northwestern Syria was a good decision; (2) Turkey is an ally in name only and no friend of America. Doubt that NATO status counts for much with President Trump. (Did the Turks help us at Normandy? No, they were on the Germans’ side until two months after the Normandy invasion. Affinity and/or respect for strongmen leaders — an affinity shared by President Obama, who bonded almost immediately with the thuggish Erdogan — probably had more to do with our troop pullback than did Turkey’s membership in NATO.
Why Turkey seems to have no friends
Jun 10, 2018 · Those who believe Israel is an urgent matter in Turkey’s foreign policy, rose from 8.3 percent last year to 24.2 percent this year. The survey revealed a rise in the percentage of respondent who believe that Turkey has no friends in the international arena from 17.2 to 22.5 percent.
Pakistan is an all weather ally of Turkey. Other than that, despite the ongoing discord, Turkey is officially a card carrying member of NATO... why - we don't understand - unless it's fear of Erdogan and his army of migrants.
The Long Shadow
The Lord Jesus said, “Because thou hast kept the word of My patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
11-5-19, * -- “Shadows communicate a reality, yet, they themselves are not really real. They indicate the thing that is coming, yet, they are not the things themselves.” -- Pastor Ken Ortize, Calvary Spokane
There is a day coming, which will turn the world upside down. That day is known to us, as the Rapture of the Church. While it is true that no man knows the day or hour, it is also true that the Bible states we would see that day approaching. (Matt. 16: 1-4, Thess. 5:1-9, Hebrews 10:25, Rev. 3:3). The only way that is possible to know and not know, is to see the shadow of the event before it arrives. Non-believers look at the Rapture as a joke or something to mock and ridicule, if they think about it at all. To the believer, however, there is much divergence of opinion as to the nature and timing of the event. However, one would be hard-pressed to state that the Bible does not mention this event as a certainty. Only a true heretic would deny what the Bible clearly teaches, because it is found throughout scripture, both in word and type. To deny that, would be to deny what is clearly written in Holy Scripture. It is a divinely appointed happening showcasing God’s supernatural ability to rescue His own, prior to unleashing His wrath and judgment He pours out upon the earth.
Satan knows humans are easily corruptible. If he couldn’t destroy the Church, he would need to neutralize the Church. Knowing human nature if he could get the Church focused on this life and not the next, he could corrupt them. This distraction came in the form of a hermeneutical (interpretational) corruption that began with the early church father Origen (184-253 AD) and continued with the conversion of Emperor Constantine in 312AD.
His conversion (true or not) allowed for Christians to come out of the shadows and begin living openly in the still largely pagan empire. Eventually, a North African Christian convert named Augustine of Hippo (circa 390AD), produces a popular, yet heretical, form of eschatology known as amillennialism. It began to emerge as the predominant viewpoint within Christendom. This view (Amillennialism) posited that the Church was now both Israel (who was then in diaspora) and also the physical manifestation of the promised Kingdom-Come; thus, inheritors of all the Old Testament blessings and promises. This new variation of Christianity then began absorbing many of the Roman’s pagan rituals, temples, and even clergy as their own to make it more palatable to a still largely pagan empire in decline.
And the shadow grew.
However, this hijacking was not unforeseen by God. Christ had predicted as much in His seven Kingdom Parables (Matthew 13). The most obvious one was with the Parable of the Mustard Seed. Matthew 13:31-32
And the shadow grew.
Remember back to Jesus’ parting statement in Matthew 28. He still has all authority in both heaven and on earth. This worldly form of Christendom quickly assumed (and consumed) what had been the extents of the Roman empire. However, this was to be short-lived. Since Jesus knew Christianity would be hijacked into this whorish variation of paganism and Christianity, He allowed a new force to arise that would quickly put an end to the worldly-minded Holy Roman Empire - Islam. Muslims began to conquer and take hold of the lands that were once “Christian” (nations can’t be Christian-only individuals can). However, as Islam began to dominate, it too began to splinter into a million tiny factions, all vying for control. And as the persecution intensified, Christendom began to splinter into two factions; those who wanted to remain in the largely pagan Holy Roman Empire, and those who did not. While the Holy Roman Empire (now the Roman Catholic Church [RCC]) maintained its foothold largely in Europe, true Christians continued to spread throughout the world.
From a sliver in the first century, to now taking some form, the shadow continued to grow slowly, but surely.
Christ’s return was given to us by Christ Himself in His Seven Letters to the Seven literal churches in John’s day [modern day Turkey] (Revelation 1:4 - 3:19). By 95AD, there were thousands of churches; the Lord could have used, literally, any number of churches as examples to convey His messages. However, He only uses seven with a specific reason. There were larger congregations at that time in places like Corinth, Galatia, Rome, Antioch, Jerusalem, etc.
Jesus gave them to John in a particular order because God does not do things arbitrarily or accidentally. These seven churches were not selected because they had issues unique only to themselves, but to all churches past, present and future. Even within each type of church, we can see the different types of believers represented by the corporate image of each church. For example, within the Sardis-era, (the era in which one type of church dominates Christendom) we can see Philadelphian or Laodicean types of believers. We also note that Jesus had seven kingdom parables, which overlap with His seven letters, which can be overlapped with Paul’s epistles to seven churches (excluding duplicates, personal letters, and Hebrews [which remained unsigned]).
Here at the end of the age, not only is this prophetic shadow present, but its darkness has covered the world. Things appear dark, because it is a foreboding time, pregnant with great horror, abominations, and wickedness that is only recognizable to those who have been filled with the Holy Spirit and have eyes to see, and ears to hear.
The Bible emphatically states that the world at large, would not see the day coming, just as those Pharisees could not see their Messiah in front of them (Matt. 16:1-4). Just like before the flood, that antediluvian population assumed that things would continue on as it always had since creation. [2 Peter 3:4-7] “…Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.” Matthew 24:38-42; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-4
Philadelphia: (1730-Present). Out of the smoldering coals of the dying Reformation fires, came a Spirit-driven spiritual revival in Europe and America called the First Great Awakening with great missionary movements setting out unto the entire world, sharing the Light of the Gospel to every nation. As time moved on, the Awakenings would get smaller and smaller as the West became increasingly an Acts 19:5 culture (largely divergent without Judeo-Christian roots). Out of all the letters, only this one has a promise to remove the Church altogether from this world. The rest of the letters, when taken in context, offer no such promise.
Thus, we have lived in this long shadow since that first Pentecost; when the Holy Spirit was given to mankind in an extraordinary fashion as ‘cloven tongues of fire’ descending upon the disciples (Acts 2:1-4). However, just prior to that, Christ ascended from the earth in front of His disciples in an equally glorious fashion. As they stood gazing intently into the sky, presumably, wondering if He would return in short order, two Angels appear and communicate with the disciples gathered there. Acts 1:9-11 Before He left, Christ’s mandate to the disciples indicated that while His return was absolutely certain (John 14:1-3), it may have some time built into it. They were to go into the entire world, making disciples of all nations. Matthew 28:18-20
Christ stands outside this church knocking on the door [Revelation 3:20]. However, the decline of Western Christendom and intense ramping up of persecution against Eastern Christendom was foretold by Scripture. None of this was by accident or surprise to God. We with eyes to see and ears to hear, should take some comfort living through these darkened days, because they are only darkened, by the shadow of what’s coming…our deliverance.

Why Is Turkey Still In NATO?
- He has carried on a campaign of vilification against the United States for refusing to hand over Fethulleh Gulen to Erdogan’s “justice.”
- He has discharged tens of thousands of people – judges, lawyers, professors, civil servants, military officers – whom he wildly accused of being part of the failed coup in July 2016.
- Turkey continues to jail more journalists than any other country on earth.
- Erdogan has bought Russian S-400 surface-to-air missile defense system, which U.S. and NATO officials fear would lead to security breaches (for the Russians could test how the S-400 performed against NATO missiles supplied by Turkey, and tweak their defense system accordingly).
- He kept the American pastor Andrew Brunson imprisoned for two years, after a Turkish court absurdly convicted the pastor of the Izmir Resurrection Church, a tiny congregation with 25 members — and gave him a 20-year prison sentence on assorted trumped-up charges, including that of being a C.I.A. spy and a member of the Kurdish “terrorist” group, the PKK, and worst of all, of being a “Gulenist” operative. Brunson was finally freed, most begrudgingly, and only after terrific American economic pressure (threats of more boycotts and tariffs) on Ankara. Erdogan’s plan was apparently to trade Brunson for Gulen; the Americans would have none of it.
- Erdogan has called the Germans “Nazis” for refusing to allow his men to campaign for votes from Turks living in Germany.
- When Austria shut down some Turkish-funded mosques, this led him to predict a coming war “between the crescent and the cross,” leaving no doubt as to which side Turkey would be on.
- Called for a gigantic pan-Islamic force to be created that could make war on, and presumably destroy, Israel. In Erdogan’s view, all 57 members of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation [O.I.C.] would contribute, with Turkey taking the leading role. The plan was put forth in an article published by Erdogan’s most loyal mouthpiece, the newspaper Yeni Safak. The very detailed article included this:
- What If An Army Of Islam Was Formed Against Israel? If the OIC member states unite and form a joint military force, it will be the largest army in the world. These countries’ total population is 1,674,526,931. The number of soldiers in active service in these countries is at least 5,206,100. Their [overall] military defense budget, of $174,728,420,000 is also worthy of emphasis.
There is overwhelming superiority of the 57 Muslim states [coalition?] to Israel in their populations, in the numbers of their soldiers, in their defense budgets, and in their combined weaponry. Among the decisions that can be taken at the OIC [summit] is to form a ‘Jerusalem Task Group.’ If an Islamic army is formed, Israel will be under a siege involving 250,000 soldiers, and the establishment of joint land, air and naval bases for use in the short term. This task force would include: 500 tanks and armored vehicles, 100 war planes, 500 attack helicopters and 50 warships and submarines can be mobilized. When this was published not a peep of objection from other NATO members – clearly stated Islam coalition intends to destroy the Jewish State of Israel.
Yet Turkey remains a member of NATO, in apparent good standing. Of what conceivable benefit, militarily, is Turkish membership in NATO to its other members?
- In 2003 Turkey prevented the Americans from using the Incirlik air base to invade Iraq from the north
- In 2010 Erdogan claimed that Israel is “the principal threat to peace” in the Middle East. Not al-Qaeda, not the Islamic State, not Hezbollah, not Hamas, not Islamic Jihad, not the Muslim Brotherhood, but Israel, that has been fighting only defensive wars imposed on it by Arab states and terrorist groups ever since 1948.
- In 2016 Incrilik was locked down and power cut by Turkey during the coup attempt
- Turkey threatens to “kick out the American troops from two critical military bases in Incirlik and Malatya.” The Turkish journalist Burak Bekdil notes that “The US nuclear warheads at Incirlik have remained at the disposition of the US military under a special US-Turkish treaty. The early warning radars stationed at the Malatya base, which are linked to the US Aegis system (deployed in the Mediterranean), provide a shield for Israel against any air or missile attack.” But that is all the more reason for Erdogan to want to close down the Malatya base, and shut off those radars.
- How likely is it that Turkey would allow its airspace or bases on its soil to be used by NATO forces should there be action against Iran or contribute troops to a coalition of NATO military forces?
- President Erdogan and his senior officials have repeatedly threatened Europe that unless it does Turkey’s bidding – and stops criticizing its policies (including sending troops into Syrian Kurdish areas), “We will open the gates and send 3.6 million refugees your way.”
- Turkey has never been interested in fighting ISIS. It was no secret that Turkey allowed ISIS fighters to cross freely into Syria from Turkey, no doubt because it preferred ISIS to the Syrian Kurds ISIS was fighting. And Turkey allowed wounded ISIS members to be treated at Turkish hospitals and then, instead of detaining them, let them return to the Islamic State.
As the veteran Middle East correspondent Trudy Rubin has noted:
Baghdadi was found, not in ISIS’s traditional area of eastern Turkey, but far away in western Syria, near the Turkish border and Turkish military outposts. This suggests that Turkish military intelligence knew Baghdadi’s location and didn’t share it.
Shouldn’t all this matter?
Why is Turkey still in NATO?

God Created Creatures to Adapt
God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that move along the ground, and the wild animals, each according to its kind." God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And it was so and it was good. "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground."
Exploring Adaptation of God's Creatures from an Engineering Perspective
10-29-19, * -- For more than a century, biologists have appealed to Darwinian natural selection to explain how living organisms adapt to different environments. But research over the last several decades has consistently dethroned Darwin’s view of natural selection. Rather than corroborating the concept that environments mold creatures through “survival of the fittest,” the research supports the astonishing idea that to a great extent creatures actively sense their environments and adapt accordingly. Recent discoveries indicate that something radical and impressive is happening. Adaptation is a result of brilliant biological engineering rather than trial-and-error death and survival, which flips the mechanism of adaptation completely on its head. This approach views biological adaptation as primarily occurring through internal mechanisms (the ability to actively sense the environment and adapt) rather than external influence (the environment molds creatures through Darwinian natural selection). Abundant evidence can be found that creatures actively sense their environments and responsively adapt. Many such adaptations occur within one generation or less, which is far too rapid for Darwin’s notion of trial-and-error natural selection.
• Darwin’s famous finches rapidly adapted their beak shapes by sensing the environment rather than strictly through inherited genetic changes.1
• A species of carp expeditiously changed its morphology in the presence of predators. These changes made the carps’ bodies more difficult to devour and increased their speed and acceleration.2
• A study of over 1,000 pythons and boas demonstrated that they expressed similar traits to adapt to their environments, with no recorded mutations.3
• Certain populations of mice vary their tail lengths in response to eastern or western prairies and forests. This appears to happen by specific genetic mechanisms—not mutations.4
• Clutches of eggs for various reptiles sense environmental temperature and sand content and produce different ratios of male and female. The changes occur after the eggs are laid and are not a result of mutations. Specific sensors for this process were discovered in 2015.5
• When a certain species of sighted river fish lays eggs in a cave environment, the larvae indirectly sense the cave environment and produce fish with greater eye and orbit size variations. No inactivating mutation in regulatory genes have been identified.6
Many evolutionary scientists significantly disagree over the challenge this “warp-speed evolution” presents to Darwinism.7 Nature magazine published a 2014 point-counterpoint article on the issue titled “Does evolutionary theory need a rethink?”8 In sharp contrast with traditional Darwinian thought, attendees of an April 2016 conference at the University of Pittsburgh explored the possibility of examining biology in the light of engineering principles. [..snip]
In light of recent discoveries, ICR’s Dr. Randy Guliuzza has incorporated the newest research into a pioneering, design-based, organism-focused method of interpreting biological adaptation. So far, critiques of Darwinism have focused on the inadequacies of its mechanisms or the insurmountable hurdles it would need to overcome to actually work. But this criticism offers little alternative. As both a medical doctor and a registered Professional Engineer, Dr. Guliuzza has the education and experience to provide a solution with unique insights in the area of biological engineering.
- Paleobiochemist Dr. Brian Thomas says, “Dr. Randy Guliuzza’s research has bravely re-evaluated old ideas about the way animals adjust their biology.”
- Nuclear physicist Vernon Cupps, author of the recent book Rethinking Radiometric Dating, says, “Creationists in general and ICR in particular can look forward to a bright future in the study of biological engineering thanks to the work of Dr. Guliuzza.”
Romans 1:20 says, “For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made.”

President Trump Business Brainiac!

Halting the blood letting of horrible US Nation Trade Deals ... all Helping Nation to Recover
11-4-19, Business Insider -- The US stock market index was driven higher by new hopes for a partial US-China trade deal; also because of a positive 11/1/19 jobs report. The Bureau of Labor Statistics said the US economy added 128,000 payrolls in October, higher than the 85,000 estimate. The better-than-expected job gains eased worries of a slowing US economy amidst the trade war and a 40-day strike at General Motors.
Judicial Misinterpretation That May Facilitate Fall of the Republic - Granting the USA House an un-Constitutional investigative power in endless search of impeachable offenses will allow the House's political majority to weaponize it against any President
The said majority political party in the US House of Rep may easily overwhelm the President with endless inquiries and subpoenas to the point that he and the Executive Branch will not be able to fulfill its Constitutional duties. This obstruction of Presidential executive power, if and when it takes place, will likely weaken the country to the point that it may no longer resist the external and domestic threats.
Although the Constitution gives the House of Representatives “the sole Power of Impeachment”, it does not give it an authority to investigate the President for possible impeachable offenses. In particular, the Constitution does not delegate to the House the power to engage in “fishing expeditions,” searching for possible crimes when there is no evidence that some specific crimes have been committed.
Judicial misinterpretation of the existing
power of Congress to investigate
There has been no Supreme Court ruling (not yet) regarding the authority of the House to investigate a President for possible impeachable offenses... In the worst-case scenario, the said future ruling may facilitate the fall of the Republic, unless the Court properly recognizes the likelihood of such a consequence under the current circumstances of one party attempting to use the Constitution as a weapon against its political adversaries and conflating the idea of checks-and-balances with hostility and contempt towards the duly-elected President.
- No hypocrisy allowed. (What standards of conduct did the President violate that the majority party and its officials, in particular, past Presidents, are scrupulously following, and why does such violation fall into the category of “high crimes and misdemeanors”?)
- No selective prosecution allowed. (Are political adversaries prosecuted and sternly punished for every violation they might have committed, no matter how small, technical, or inconsequential, while political allies are not?)
- Presumption of innocence is mandatory.
- No weaponization of Congressional power for political or partisan advantage allowed.
- No tampering with evidence or witnesses allowed.
- No “fishing expeditions” (subpoenas, searches, and interrogations in search for a crime) and campaign “dirt” research allowed.
- Due process of law is mandatory.
- All 6th Amendment protections are mandatory, except that “an Impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been ascertained by law” is replaced by “The Senate of the U.S.”.
The framers of the Constitution did not envision that branches (or their parts) of the US Federal Government may become hostile to each other, or to the Republic, to the point that they would actually attempt to weaponize their powers for their own political advantage rather than exercising them in good faith for the good of the Republic and the Nation.
The Supreme Court may have an opportunity to weigh-in on this critical issue in the context of Congressional pre-impeachment investigations; if they decide it wrong then the Republic may fall and the Court will forever share the blame for it.

Dems Have Been Impeaching President Trump Since Day One
10-2-19, RealClearPolitics -- Democrats have been impeaching President Trump since day one, January 20, 2017. Maxine Waters - 9/10/18, Rashida Tlaib - 9-27-18 & Texan Al Green - 7-17-18 all admitted they want to iimpeach him long before the Ukraine telephone call.However, to impeach does not just mean our constitutional process to remove a president for high crimes and misdemeanors, or, in this case .. also means “to cast doubt on." And that's exactly what Dems and their allies in the media have done since Nov. 9, 2016. Accepting the fact they all got it so wrong would require painful self-reflection. It is much easier to divert, disparage and discredit. Otherwise the American people would not learn their lesson.
2017: The Campaign to Impeach Pres Trump has begun
1-20-17, WashPost -- Since May 2017 Democrat Rep. Al Green of Texas has introduced four articles of impeachment against Pres Trump then:
5-10-16, PoliticUSUSA -- Donald Trump is just a symptom of the conservative movement’s rejection of facts and knowledge. A new poll revealed that depth of bigoted stupidity of Republican voters who are supporting businessman Donald John Trump. Trump is leading a revolution of stupid within the Republican Party. The presumptive 2016 nominee represents all of the fear, bigotry, and bias that has been pumped into the Republican Party by conservative media. The Trump supporters are out of touch reality on every level, and they have taken over the Republican Party.

"History is Back"
God said, "Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes. 19And ye shall teach them your children, speaking of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. 20And thou shalt write them upon the door posts of thine house, and upon thy gates: 21That your days may be multiplied, and the days of your children, in the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers to give them, as the days of heaven upon the earth. 22For if ye shall diligently keep all these commandments which I command you, to do them, to love the LORD your God, to walk in all his ways, and to cleave unto him; 23Then will the LORD drive out all these nations from before you, and ye shall possess greater nations and mightier than yourselves."
