Prominent Italian intellectual accuses Pope of hating the West, aspiring to destroy it and Christian tradition

  BY 

Jihad Watch has frequently addressed concerns about Pope Francis and his efforts to ally with unsavory Islamic leaders and push for more Muslim migrants in the West. It is fortunate that not all Catholic leaders see eye to eye with the Pope.

For example, Cardinal Robert Sarah — prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments — compared “the modern influx of Muslim migrants to the invasions of barbarian tribes that ultimately brought down the Roman Empire in a.d. 475.” Sarah also issued a warning which contradicts the Pope. He cautioned that “it is a false exegesis [interpretation of scriptural text] to use the Word of God to promote migration. God never wanted these rifts.” But this is precisely what Pope Francis has been doing: acting as a blind guide in preaching that it is un-Christian to oppose mass Muslim migration into Europe. Meanwhile, the Vatican remains walled up, and the Pope remains surrounded by security.

A prominent Italian intellectual has now kicked criticism of the Pope up a notch regarding his views about mass Muslim migration and much more. Marcello Pera, a non-believer and a “philosopher of science, former president of the Italian Senate, and close friend of Pope Benedict XVI,” asserted that the Pope “hates the West, he aspires to destroy it. … as he aspires to destroy the Christian tradition.”

Given the globalist views of the Pope and his Islamic supremacist associates (which prompted Robert Spencer to refer to him as The Grand Sheikh Francis of al-Vatican), as well as his push for more Muslim migration, Pera makes a compelling case.

“Time for Pope Francis and the Vatican to wake up about Islam,” by William Kilpatrick, Lifesite News, January 7, 2020:

January 7, 2019 (The Catholic Thing) — In comments last year, Marcello Pera, a prominent Italian intellectual and non-believer, criticized Pope Francis for “openly going against tradition, doctrine, and introducing inexplicable innovations, behaviors and gestures.”

A philosopher of science, former president of the Italian Senate, and close friend of Pope Benedict XVI, Pera asserted that Francis had turned Catholicism into “a Church so outgoing that it can no longer be found anywhere.”

In an earlier 2017 interview with Il Mattino, Pera was even more outspoken. In answer to a question about “indiscriminate” welcoming of migrants to Europe, he replied: “Frankly, I do not get this pope, whatever he says is beyond any rational understanding. It’s evident to all that an indiscriminate welcoming is not possible: there is a critical point that can’t be reached.”

He continued: “If the pope … insists in a massive and total welcoming, I ask myself: why does he say it? … Why does he lack a minimum of realism, that very little that is requested of anyone? The answer I can give myself is only one: The Pope does it because he hates the West, he aspires to destroy it. … As he aspires to destroy the Christian tradition.”

Two years ago, most Catholics would have found that hard to swallow. But now, the idea that Pope Francis hates the West is beginning to seem plausible. It would explain much of what he says and does — his criticism of capitalism and colonialism, Amazonian initiative and, above all, encouragement of mass Muslim migration into Europe.

Does he also aspire to destroy the Christian tradition? Well, he rarely misses an opportunity to criticize traditional Catholics. At the same time, he seems intent on introducing exotic and decidedly non-traditional practices into the life of the Church.

The key word, of course, is “aspires.” Does Francis consciously desire to “destroy” the West and traditional Christianity (aka Christianity)? Or is he simply a well-intentioned do-gooder who doesn’t understand the consequences of his experiments?

That’s a serious question, but it’s unnecessary to know the answer in order to raise a related question: Whatever the intention, do his policies and programs actually tend toward the destruction of the West and of Christianity?

I would say, “Yes, they do.” And I would argue, as Professor Pera does, that they “lack a minimum of realism.” Future historians may well look back upon our era as the Age of Unreality. And many in the Church have embraced this unreality as though it were a newly revealed Gospel.

Some Church leaders have been flirting with the idea of same-sex marriage, and some seem willing to believe that females can transition to males and males to females. Others, including the pope himself, seem to believe in the fantasy idea that the lot of the poor can be improved by getting rid of fossil-fuels — which may be the reason that they have also revived the fantasy of the Noble Savage. Because, minus the benefits of electric power, much of the world will be quickly reduced to a primitive level. In which case, we may all find ourselves praying to Pachamama and the rain gods for a good harvest.

The most dangerous fantasy, however, is the one that Church leaders have created about Islam. We are told that it’s a religion of peace, that it shares much common ground with Christianity, that Muslims venerate Jesus just as Catholics do, that terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, and that the slaughter of Christians by Muslims can be attributed to a tiny minority who “misunderstand” their religion.

At the same time, we are taught that “Islamophobia” — an irrational fear of Islam — is a far greater danger than Islamic aggression.

Pera’s point is that these supposedly “irrational” fears are actually quite reasonable. He is mainly concerned with the fantasy that Europe can successfully absorb millions of Muslim migrants who don’t want to assimilate…. (Click to Source)

Pope Francis Unveils Globalist New World Religion at Summit with United Nations Leader

The Pope wants globalism to replace traditional religion.

Published  on Dec 26, 2019 By Shane Trejo

Pope Francis’ war on traditional Catholicism has been ramping up recently, and he castigated Catholics who believe in tradition and refuse to warp Biblical scripture to appease a godless world for creating a “minefield of misunderstanding and hatred.”

“Rigidity and imbalance fuel one another in a vicious circle,” he said. “And these days, the temptation to rigidity has become so apparent.”

“Tradition is not static, it’s dynamic,” Francis added.

Francis revealed the dogma that he intends to replace belief in Christ as savior with last week. He is advocating for Catholics to unite behind a one world government, and surrender their freedom and sovereignty to international interests.

“Trust and dialogue between people and between nations, in multilateralism, in the role of international organizations, and in diplomacy as an instrument for appreciation and understanding, is indispensable for building a peaceful world,” Francis claimed.

“Your clear moral voice shines through – whether you are speaking out on the plight of the most vulnerable, including refugees and migrants … confronting poverty and inequalities … appealing for disarmament… building bridges between communities … and, of course, highlighting the climate emergency through your historic encyclical, ‘Laudato Si’, and so many other vital efforts,” U.N. Secretary General António Guterres said during his meeting with the pontiff.

The “Laudato Si” was a blasphemous encyclical letter issued by Francis in 2015 calling for world government to solve the supposed global warming crisis.

“Climate change is a global problem with grave implications: environmental, social, economic, political and for the distribution of goods. It represents one of the principal challenges facing humanity in our day,” Francis wrote in his second encyclical.

Francis added: “Enforceable international agreements are urgently needed, since local authorities are not always capable of effective intervention… International and regional conventions do exist, but fragmentation and the lack of strict mechanisms of regulation, control and penalization end up undermining these efforts… What is needed, in effect, is an agreement on systems of governance for the whole range of so-called ‘global commons.’”

Francis made fighting global warming a focal point of his speech while standing next to Guterres in the Vatican last week.

“It is necessary to recognize oneself as members of a single humanity and to take care of our land which, generation after generation, has been entrusted to us by God in custody so that we may cultivate it and leave it in inheritance to our children. Commitment to reducing polluting emissions and comprehensive ecology is urgent and necessary: let’s do something before it’s too late,” Francis said.

“We cannot – we must not – look the other way at the injustices, the inequalities, the scandal of hunger in the world, of poverty, of children who die because they have no water, food, the necessary care. We can’t look the other way at any kind of abuse against the little ones. We must fight this plague together,” he said.

Francis – the protector of pedophile predator priests – is an agent of the new world order, working to subvert authentic Christianity at a time when it is under unprecedented attack. (Click to Source)

In spite of full gospel light shining forth, the majority will turn to Satan and be given over to lust. The Bible does not say that judgment on America awaits world evangelism.

     

A solid majority of Americans would now be comfortable with a president who is gay or lesbian, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

A full 61 percent of respondents reported being “enthusiastic” or “comfortable” with a gay or lesbian president. Meanwhile, Americans comfortable or enthusiastic about an evangelical Christian president received a more tepid 52 percent approval.

This study comes on the heels of a March survey, also conducted by Wall Street Journal/NBC News, in which a record 59 percent of American respondents said they were in favor of same-sex “marriage.”

What is happening to America, the largest Protestant nation in the world, that she is ready to welcome a homosexual president, but not an evangelical president? Is she racing for her punishment and judgment?

Thirty years ago, World Challenge, a David Wilkerson ministry, sent me his book “Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth.” The introduction was by Leonard Ravenhill. It is a fiery message, with a vision, about the destruction of America. When I read it for the first time, I was shocked, especially because the 1980s were the Reagan years. How could Wilkerson have had such vision when a conservative, pro-family Reagan was facing the Evil Empire? His prophecy should have been directed to the Soviet Union, not America! This revelation was indeed shocking. Yet, more shocking is what America has been doing in the last decades. I have come to learn that even American conservatism is now becoming a Babylon.

The Soviet Union no longer exists. What exists now is a U.S. government obsessed about sodomy-based “marriage” and behaving imperialistically to impose homosexual sin on the whole world. Was Wilkerson’s prophecy, after all, correct?

Some time after Wilkerson, John Mulinde, a preacher of Uganda, received a revelation about God’s judgment on America. His message is a fulfilment of Wilkerson’s prophecy, who told that God would send to America third-world prophets to warn about the coming judgment.

David Wilkerson became famous by the book and movie “The Cross and the Switchblade,” showing his life and ministry helping addicted young people, by focusing especially on delivering experiences by the Holy Spirit.

One of the distinctions of Babylon in Revelation 18 is its intensely commercial nature. By its commercial power and seduction, it is envied by the whole world. It is extremely capitalist — but without God. In communism, you see intense and destructive economic control without God. In Babylon, you see the opposed: intense and destructive commercial and economic freedom without God.

The best products and services (entertainment, medical, religious, military, etc.) in the world are available in Babylon.

In communism, there is extreme limitation or lack of products and services. In fact, communism offers the worst products and services. In contrast, in Babylon, there is the biggest abundance of the best products and services the world has ever seen. So it is evident that Babylon is not Marxist, communist or socialist. It is a commercial paradise on the Earth. It is the “New Jerusalem” of the carnal wishes and greed of the human heart. No wonder that when Babylon will be destroyed, the whole world will cry.

By its commercial ambitions, products and services, Babylon is described in the Bible as having prostituted herself with all nations on the earth. And God said about Babylon, “Your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived.” (Revelation 18:23-24 NKJV) If America does not fit it, who does it? Are not the U.S. powerful businessmen, trade and currency ruling the world?
In addition, there is a fatal distinction in America that Wilkerson saw as “Babylon.”

In these last days, America has embraced a passionate and leading role in the promotion of the gay agenda — not to mention abortion — around the world, leading Billy Graham to say, “America is just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah.” And often he mentions, “If God doesn’t punish America, He’ll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah.” Is this a manifest destiny?

This kind of destiny is accompanied by a terrible fate. What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah, which were involved in rampant homosexuality, is what will happen to cities and nations involved in the same sins:

“What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities near them is an example for us of the punishment of eternal fire. The people of these cities suffered the same fate that God’s people and the angels did, because they committed sexual sins and engaged in homosexual activities.” (Jude 1:7 GWV)

How would not such punishment reach the most powerful nation in the world that, even though flooded with the Gospel, is obsessed about extending the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah to whole world? If God did not spare Sodom and Gomorrah and their homosexual sins, how will he spare the largest Protestant nation in the world that wants to whole world involved in the same sins?

According to “The Pink Swastika” author Scott Lively, “Ancient Rabbinical tradition holds that homosexuality, more specifically homosexual marriage, was the ‘final insult’ to God which caused Him to bring that Great Flood.”

The role of America in homosexual sin has been much more than just to adhere to it. America has been its main propagandist. Even in her Protestant capacity, America has been the leading propagandist of gay theology, and its rotten fruits are evident in Brazil, where the most prominent gay Protestant theologian was inspired by U.S. gay theology.

America has spread homosexual ideology by every way (religious, legal, cultural, commercial, etc.) and she has used her imperial force to promote and impose it and its fake “marriage” around the world with brutish immorality. Is there a manifest destiny in sodomy for America?

Some Christians argue that because America, after Israel, has the largest Jewish population in the world, this is a sure sign that she has God’s approval and protection against destruction. Yet, when the first Babylon, which was located in modern Iraq, was destroyed, its Jewish population was the largest in the world after Israel. In fact, one of the political leaders in Babylon was the Jew Daniel, historically prominent for his prophetic book “Daniel” in the Old Testament. A large Jewish population and a Jewish prophet in the Babylonian government did not save the first Babylon from destruction.

Even though you may doubt that America will be destroyed for being Babylon, her role today as the leading propagandist, promoter and enforcer of sodomy seems an enough warrant that she looking after the same punishment and destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Global sodomy militancy would seem an enough reason for punishment and destruction. For a lot less Sodom was destroyed. If America will be not destroyed for being Babylon, she will be destroyed for being, as Billy Graham said, “just as wicked as Sodom and Gomorrah.”

Yet, if David Wilkerson is correct in his vision, America will be judged and destroyed as Babylon. Wilkerson said in Set the Trumpet to Thy Mouth:
I believe modern Babylon is present-day America, including its corrupt society and its whorish church system. No other nation on earth fits the description in Revelation 18 but America, the world’s biggest fornicator with the merchants of all nations.

America is going to be destroyed by fire! Sudden destruction is coming and few will escape. Unexpectedly, and in one hour, a hydrogen holocaust will engulf America—and this nation will be no more. It is because America has sinned against the greatest light. Other nations are just as sinful, but none are as flooded with gospel light as ours. God is going to judge America for its violence, its crimes, its backslidings, its murdering of millions of babies, its flaunting of homosexuality and sadomasochism, its corruption, its drunkenness and drug abuse, its form of godliness without power, its lukewarmness toward Christ, its rampant divorce and adultery, its lewd pornography, its child molestations, its cheatings, its robbings, its dirty movies, and its occult practices. In one hour it will all be over.

Think of the “lady in the harbor”—the Statue of Liberty. Isaiah warned of sudden destruction upon a proud lady. “And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it. Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children: but these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments. For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me. Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know” (Isaiah 47:7-11).

They were warned God would make useless their weapons of war, that all their armaments could not save them from God’s wrath (Jeremiah 21:4). God said to them, “I myself will fight against you!” (Jeremiah 21:5).

That is an outright warning to America. Our huge stockpiles of weapons are but so many sticks and stones—useless against what God has planned against us. What was said of ancient Babylon will be said of modern Babylon, “The mighty men of Babylon have forborn to fight, they have remained in their holds: their might hath failed; they became as women: they have burned her dwelling places; her bars are broken” (Jeremiah 51:30). This is why there will be no retaliatory strikes from this nation or its allies; because of the suddenness and finality of it all, we will “forebare to fight,” and our missiles will remain in their hold. Our might will fail us in the hour of judgment. Our allies will “become as women” and surrender immediately.

What America could not do with all of its millions, all of its electronic gimmicks, all of its expensive media methods, the Holy Spirit will accomplish in a short time with a Gideon’s army of poor and simple evangelists from Third World countries; and the rest of the world will hear the gospel. A remnant of overcomers from all nations will be raised up in righteousness. In spite of full gospel light shining forth, the majority will turn to Satan and be given over to lust. The Bible does not say that judgment on America awaits world evangelism.

God does not need America to evangelize the world. We have failed in this mission. Our nation still spends more money each year for dog food than for missions. There will be one last great ingathering, and it is even now happening. The gospel will be published to all the world by a great army of witnesses indigenous to every nation on earth. It is the Lord’s last harvest. Even now the Spirit of God is raising up a thriving body of witnesses in China. South America and Africa will be covered with powerful witnesses from their own lands. Mexico and South America are open to the gospel and young evangelists are being raised up. They will not need missions boards, ordinations, large amounts of money, and fancy equipment. They will live on pennies, as the early disciples did; and in a short time they will cover the earth with the gospel. And they will point to God’s fiery judgment on this careless, rich, modern Babylon as a sign the end is near. (Click to Source)

Globalist Pope Francis calls for new ‘supranational’ authorities that would to rule countries and enforce UN goals

 

Pope Francis made a strong new push for globalism on Thursday, calling for a supranational, legally constituted body to enforce United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and implement “climate change” policies.

Speaking to members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences in the Vatican’s Apostolic Palace, the Pope said: “When a supranational common good is clearly identified, there is need for a special legally constituted authority capable of facilitating its implementation.”

“Think of the great contemporary challenges of climate change, new slavery and peace,” he told members of the Pontifical Academy, who are meeting this week at the Vatican for a plenary session themed: “Nation, State, Nation-State.”

Featured speakers at the May 1-3 plenary include German Cardinal Walter Kasper, who spoke on: “Peace Stemming from Justice. Theological Reflections Between Men, Communities and Nations”; Archbishop Roland Minnerath of Dijon, France, who delivered the opening talk on day two, themed: “Nation, State, Nation-State and the Doctrine of the Catholic Church”; and German climatologist and founding director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact, Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, who addressed the Pontifical Academy on “The State of the World.”

In his address to the academy, the Pope said that while “the principle of subsidiarity” requires that “individual nations must be given the power to operate as far as they can reach,” nonetheless “groups of neighboring nations — as is already the case — can strengthen their cooperation by attributing the exercise of certain functions and services to intergovernmental institutions that manage their common interests.”

The thrust of the Pope’s remarks, however, focused on growing trends toward nationalism which he said threatens migrants, the “universal common good” and the power of the United Nations and other transnational bodies to implement the Sustainable Development Goal agenda.

The Church “has always exhorted men to love their own people and homeland,” he said. “At the same time,” he added, “the Church has warned persons, peoples and governments about deviations from this attachment when it is about excluding and hating others, when it becomes conflictual nationalism that builds walls, indeed even racism or anti-Semitism.”

“The Church observes with concern the re-emergence, almost everywhere in the world, of aggressive currents towards foreigners, especially immigrants, as well as that growing nationalism which neglects the common good,” Pope Francis continued.

“There is a risk of compromising already established forms of international cooperation, undermining the aims of international organizations as a space for dialogue and meeting for all countries on a level of mutual respect, and hindering the achievement of the sustainable development goals unanimously approved by the General Assembly of the United Nations on 25 September 2015,” he told members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.

SDGs: eliminating poverty or children?
Many are concerned that some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), while billed as aimed at eliminating poverty, are really about eliminating children. “Reproductive health services” for example, which are referred to in the SDGs, are often a euphemism frequently employed to mean abortion in UN debates.

As Steven Mosher, Population Research Institute, explains:

Developing nations who adopt the SDGs will be pressured to legalize abortion, even though the word abortion never appears in the document. They will be told, falsely, that there is an “international consensus” that reproductive rights includes a right to abortion. They will be instructed that laws protecting the unborn violate this consensus and must be replaced with new laws permitting abortion on demand. And they will be threatened with the withholding of international aid unless they comply. (Click to Source)

Calif. Megachurch Accused of Practicing Occult in Use of ‘Destiny Cards’

christ-alignment

Bethel Church, a controversial megachurch in Redding, California, is now under fire in Christian circles for allegedly promoting New Age occultism in the use of “Destiny Cards,” which critics have likened to tarot cards.

Leaders of the 9,000-member congregation have been accused of working with a Melbourne, Australia-based group known as Christ Alignment, a group that claims to have worked with many churches in that country to do readings.

Christ Alignment staff describe themselves as “trained spiritual consultants,” and say on their website that they “draw from the same divine energy of the Christ spirit.”

“We practice a form of supernatural healing that flows from the universal presence of the Christ. We draw from the same divine energy of the Christ spirit, as ancient followers did and operate only out of the third heaven realm to gain insight and revelation,” they say.

Marsha West of the Christian Research Network argues that the Destiny Cards are just another name for tarot cards which Christ Alignment uses to “practice the prophetic.”

(SCREENSHOT: FACEBOOK)

“Tarot cards are used to tell one’s future. Fortune telling is an occult practice. Occultists believe they are endued with magical or supernatural powers. These folks are into witchcraft, satanism, and other forms of psychic discernment (tarot cards, astrology, séances, Runes, palm reading, teacup reading, etc.). So it is clear that the Christ in Christ alignment is the New Age Christ, not the Christ of Holy Scripture, as God’s people are not to participate in occult practices such as Destiny Card reading. (Deut. 18:10),” CRN wrote.

Bethel staff initially denied any association with Christ Alignment and condemned the use of Destiny Cards, according to Church Watch Central.

“Someone told me there is an article stating that some Christians are now using ‘Christian Tarot Cards’ (apparently called ‘Destiny Cards’), and that some people associated with Bethel were doing so,” wrote Kris Vollotton, senior associate leader at Bethel Church and co-founder at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, in a deleted response on Facebook.

“This is insane! First of all, whoever is doing this needs to repent and stop the craziness in the ‘name of reaching people for Christ.’ Secondly, Bethel has graduated 10,000 students, has 9,000 people in their congregation and a couple million followers. For some reason when some ‘Christian’ does something crazy, the media often want to blame the church they go to or the podcast they listen to etc., guilt by association. Believers are called to love the broken so we are privileged to have them named among us. But broken people often act broken. Assigning their broken condition to the people loving on them is like blaming doctors for their patients’ sickness!” he continued.

The post was reportedly deleted after Ken and Jenny Hodge of Christ Alignment publicly wrote about the group’s connection to the megachurch and their school while challenging allegations that they are a cult.

“We are not a cult, we hate tarot with a passion, we have not joined ‘the world,’ we fully support everything Bethel believes in and we do not have to repent as our ministry has nothing to repent off. Jesus celebrates it. … We have had many Bethel students over the years come out on teams with us — some of your finest. They can attest to you that we have done nothing wrong, rather something right.

“We have developed a method of reaching new agers that is unique and enables us to pluck them out of darkness. We actually teach this method to churches in Australia and indeed shared it to some of your students when we were visiting Bethel,” the Hodges wrote. “It is ridiculous that Christians have judged us based on photos where cards appear, yet not one person has asked, ‘what exactly are those cards?'”

On Tuesday, Theresa Dedmon, pastoral staff member at Bethel who oversees the Creative Arts Department for the church and the School of Supernatural Ministry, denied in a blog post that the Destiny Cards are tarot cards, and explained what they are and defended their use in ministry.

“First, ‘Destiny Cards’ are not tarot cards. They do, however, have a similar look that attracts people who are searching for a ‘reading.’ What they get from Christ Alignment staff is a prophetic word about their destiny, which is to have a personal relationship with Father God through Jesus Christ, and encountered through the Holy Spirit,” she said. “Destiny Cards are simply images that help to communicate the message of the Good News to those who are searching for a hope and a future.”

She further went on to cite why they were biblically acceptable.

The Christian Post reached out to Bethel for further comment on Friday but was told Dedmon would not be able to respond until January 2018. (Click to Source)

WAR DRUMS: North Korea says it will continue preparing ‘pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force’

air-plane-659687__480-1

 North Korea promised on Saturday to continue preparing “pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force” in the face of U.S. “blackmail,” according to The Associated Press.

“Do not expect any change in its policy,” the state’s official media arm, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said Saturday. “Its entity as an invincible power can neither be undermined nor be stamped out.”

KCNA said North Korea has been working toward “bolstering the capabilities for self-defense and pre-emptive attacks with nuclear force,” in response to ongoing “nuclear threat and blackmail and war drills” by the U.S.

North Korea has tested missiles at least 16 times in 2017, and threatened the use of a hydrogen bomb small enough to fit on a missile. More than one North Korean missile flew into the air space of neighboring Japan, and new models have flown to heights that some military analysts predict could reach the mainland U.S.

Increased provocations from North Korea have led to the implementation of crippling sanctions from the United Nations in the form of trade and crude oil bans, and bombastic rhetoric from President Trump.

Trump in August said he would unleash “fire and fury” on Pyongyang if it continued to threaten the U.S. (Click to Source)

IN CHRISTMAS MESSAGE POPE FRANCIS CALLS FOR JERUSALEM TO BE DIVIDED, POINTS FOLLOWERS TO SEE ‘BABY JESUS’

Pope Francis, continuing the 1,692 year Catholic tradition of opposing Israel, had a “christmas message” right out of the Devil’s sermon book. He called for Jerusalem to be divided. Pope Francis used his Christmas message on Monday to call for a negotiated two-state solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, after US President Donald Trump stoked regional tensions with his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WILL MISS THE RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH, EVERYONE WHO IS NOT BORN AGAIN INCLUDING THE POPE, THE JESUS THAT YOU WILL MEET WILL BE A TERRIFYING SPECTACLE THAT NO HORROR MOVIE IN HOLLYWOOD COULD EVER CAPTURE ON FILM. THE JESUS WHO WILL RETURN TO THIS WORLD IN THE SECOND COMING IS A “MAN OF WAR” WHOSE CLOTHING IS COVERED IN THE SHED BLOOD OF HIS ENEMIES.

“For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land.” Joel 3:1,2 (KJV)

The diligent student of Bible prophecy knows a key fact that others who don’t follow Paul’s 2 Timothy 2:15 command to study are not aware of. When the Battle Of Armageddon takes place at the end of the time of Jacob’s trouble at the Second Coming of Jesus, God goes to war against Antichrist for one very salient reason. Israel in general, with Jerusalem in particular, have been divided by the armies of Antichrist, and God intents to fix that permanently.

“Two state solution”, you say? “Equal land” for all, is it? Not a chance in the Hell you are headed for, Francis.

Pope Francis, continuing the 1,692 year Catholic tradition of opposing Israel, had a “christmas message” right out of the Devil’s sermon book. He called for Jerusalem to be divided. Pope Francis used his Christmas message on Monday to call for a negotiated two-state solution to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, after US President Donald Trump stoked regional tensions with his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

“LET US PRAY THAT THE WILL TO RESUME DIALOG MAY PREVAIL BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND THAT A NEGOTIATED SOLUTION CAN FINALLY BE REACHED, ONE THAT WOULD ALLOW THE PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE OF TWO STATES WITHIN MUTUALLY AGREED AND INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNIZED BORDERS,” HE SAID, REFERRING TO THE ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS.

“WE SEE JESUS IN THE CHILDREN OF THE MIDDLE EAST WHO CONTINUE TO SUFFER BECAUSE OF GROWING TENSIONS BETWEEN ISRAELIS AND PALESTINIANS,” HE SAID IN HIS ADDRESS, DELIVERED FROM THE BALCONY OF ST. PETER’S BASILICA TO TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE. SOURCE

THE CATHOLIC POPE URGED HIS FOLLOWERS TO “SEE THE BABY JESUS” TO RESOLVE THE CONFLICT IN THE MIDDLE EAST

So, Francis wants people to “see the baby Jesus” as a means to somehow bring peace to the Middle East? That statement along is so ridiculous and so very unbiblical and anti-biblical that it boggles the mind. The “baby Jesus” doesn’t exist! Baby Jesus grew to be a man who was sacrificed for the sins of the world, crucified, died, buried and rose again on the third day according to the scriptures. What is that, you ask if you are a Catholic? That is a little thing the Bible calls the ‘gospel of the grace of God‘, and it is something that no Catholic pope has ever preached or ever will preach one day in their lost lives. Here it is:

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:” 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 (KJV)

The sweet little “baby Jesus” is no more, never to come again in any dispensation. Jesus is all grown up now, and is seated at the right hand of the Father, awaiting for the moment when He will come down to the clouds and pull His Church up and out of here as the Bible promises He will.

“For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”1 Thessalonians 4:16-18 (KJV)

For those of you who will miss the Rapture of the Church, everyone who is not born again including the pope, the Jesus that you will meet will be a terrifying spectacle that no horror movie in Hollywood could ever capture on film. The Jesus who will return to this world in the Second Coming is a “man of war” whose clothing is covered in the shed blood of His enemies.

“And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Revelation 19:11-13 (KJV)

pope-francis-personal-relationship-with-jesus-christ-dangerous-harmful-vatican-whore

The actual, all grown up Jesus is so crazy powerful and intimidating, that even the apostle John, whom the Bible says is the “apostle that Jesus loved”, is frightened out of his mind when he meets Him in Heaven at the Revelation.

“His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and was dead; and, behold, I am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell and of death.”Revelation 1:14-18 (KJV)

The Catholic Church knows nothing of this Jesus, the real Jesus, the One who is coming in judgment to destroy not only the armies of Antichrist but the Vatican system itself. The pope wants you to keep your mind focused on the “sweet baby Jesus”, does he? I bet he does, to distract you from this.

“So he carried me away in the spirit into the wilderness: and I saw a woman sit upon a scarlet coloured beast, full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH. And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration…And a mighty angel took up a stone like a great millstone, and cast it into the sea, saying, Thus with violence shall that great city Babylon be thrown down, and shall be found no more at all. And the voice of harpers, and musicians, and of pipers, and trumpeters, shall be heard no more at all in thee; and no craftsman, of whatsoever craft he be, shall be found any more in thee; and the sound of a millstone shall be heard no more at all in thee; And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.”Revelation 17:3-6 and Revelation 18:21-14 (KJV)

Being a Catholic is tough spot to be in, spiritually speaking. You have a church with tons of pomp and pageantry that looks impressive, but it is not the Church that Jesus started. You have sacraments that you are told to believe “impart God’s grace” to you, but they don’t. You confess your sins to a priest who has no right to hear them and no power to forgive you, who “absolves” you when you pray pagan prayers to dead people. But your sins remain. If you die in this condition, as a “good” Catholic, your chances of reaching Heaven are just a kitten’s whisker above absolute zero.

This Christmas, thank God for His “unspeakable gift” of allowing His Son to be born as a baby in this world, to grow to be the Lamb slain. But the baby is no more, and Jesus is coming in judgment to a lost world who is currently rejecting Him and who will follow Antichrist after the Rapture of the Church.

Catholicism has never saved anyone and never will. “Baby Jesus” can’t save you, either, and it certainly will never bring peace to the Middle East or anywhere else. But it’s a great tool of the Devil to distract you from God’s actual plan of salvation.

“But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.” Hebrews 2:9 (KJV)  (Click to Source)

CHAOS ALERT: Dem leader calls for deploying UN troops on the streets of America

Sunday, December 17, 2017 by: Mike Adams

baltimore_riot

(Natural News) And so it begins.

Apparently oblivious to the fact that Democrat policies have driven the city of Chicago into a state of near-collapse, Cook County Commissioner Richard Boykin is now calling for United Nations “peacekeeping” troops to be stationed on the streets of America.

As you’ll hear in the video below, Boykin says that UN troops need to be brought into America’s cities as a way to help “victims of violence.” Utterly oblivious to the ramifications of foreign troops invading U.S. soil and occupying a U.S. city, Boykin is just the latest example of a hopelessly deranged Democrat, devoid of logic and reason, who seems to have no clue he just called for in invasion of the United States of America by foreign troops. (Or maybe he knows exactly what he’s doing, and it’s time to drop the hammer…)

“I’m hoping to appeal to the UN to actually come to Chicago and meet with victims of violence, and maybe even possibly help out in terms of peacekeeping efforts,” Boykin explains in the video below. (h/t to The Daily Sheeple)

When asked to explain further, he says that armed foreign troops / shock troops are necessary to “protect minority and vulnerable populations.” Via the video below:

[UN troops] have been able to help in places like Africa, where they have sent troops in, sent forces in, to help protect minority and vulnerable populations, so frankly I think the same can be said for here in Chicago.

Watch for yourself in the CBS Chicago video below (article continues below)…

Dave Hodges and Steve Quayle have been right all along

For the record, independent media journalists Dave Hodges (TheCommonsenseShow.com) and Steve Quayle (SteveQuayle.com) have been warning about UN troops being unleashed on U.S. soil for many years. And for doing so, they have been derided as conspiracy theorists and lunatics (as have all independent media journalists, come to think of it). Yet here we have an open admission by a Chicago Democrat that this is precisely the plan. It’s no longer just a theory. It’s an admission of the plan.

Hodges wrote about this just yesterday, in fact, saying:For years, The Common Sense Show has been diligent in exposing the existence of UN troops on US soil who are simply waiting for a pretext to emerge and enforce martial law as the opening salvo for the takeover of America… The Common Sense Show has learned from a previously utilized and high ranking and well–placed source, that occupation troops of the United Nations, stationed in Chicago plan to use the extreme tenets for the NDAA to indefinitely detain, without due process that they arbitrarily deem to be a potential problem. The list of detainees WILL NOT be confined to armed gangsters who are creating mayhem and murder in Chicago. The list of permanent detainees may include members of the Deep State opposition.

Stefan Stanford of All News Pipeline has also extensively covered this now-admitted conspiracy in articles like this one, writing:

UN troops and vehicles ARE here in America – but waiting for what? As Quayle tells us, this should be a huge ‘reality check’…there is no ‘reset button’ on what we’re now watching unfolding as the globalists prepare to put this experiment in liberty once known as ‘America’ to bed.

There is no problem too big to solve… when you invade America with foreign troops

On Boykin’s on website, he explains, “There is no problem too big for us to solve… when we work together.”

By “working together,” of course, he means unleashing foreign troops on U.S. soil. This bypasses posse comitatus, which prohibits active duty U.S. soldiers from policing our own streets. By naming the armed UN invaders “peacekeepers,” Boykin is invoking deep deception about his true intentions (which is the military occupation and overthrow of U.S. authority).

The insanity of his recommendation is off the charts. He claims to need UN troops to stop “gun violence,” for example, yet fails to acknowledge that all the foreign troops will be armed, thereby bringing even more military weapons to the streets of America (to be aimed at U.S. citizens, of course).

“While no one can deny the fact that Chicago is essentially a warzone, the fact that a liberal city commissioner is planning to use United Nations peacekeepers to confront said violence should send shockwaves down the spine of any freedom loving American,” writes The Daily Sheeple. “Liberal leaders in Chicago are now openly planning to declare martial law, complete with UN shock troops on the streets to police the American population.”

All this on the heels of my warning from two weeks ago about military contractors being readied to lock down U.S. cities

Keep in mind this is all on top of my warning from two weeks ago, contained in the following audio podcast entitled, “Military contractors told to prepare for DOMESTIC deployment.” Listen to my warning in the podcast below, then continue reading below:

As you’ll hear in this podcast, some military contractors (former military operators who are now “free agents”) are being told that a domestic deployment is in the works soon, with a special emphasis on locking down cities and prevention the spread of social chaos. Individual who are high up in the intelligence chain, in other words, already know something big is in the works. I keep getting confirmations from multiple sources that this will involve unbridled civil unrest in large U.S. cities. What I don’t know, however, is the trigger event that’s going to set this off.

As far as the trigger event goes, your guess is as good as mine, but the fact that this is expected to unleash civil unrest across the cities — not the countryside — is an important clue. One educated guess about all this is that the Trump administration is about to announce mass arrests of corrupt Democrats across the country, perhaps related to widespread pedophilia and collusion among the deep state agents currently attempting a political coup against America. If this happens, half of America will cheer. But the other half will go insane and try to burn everything to the ground.

Here’s what likely happens once UN troops are unleashed on the streets of America

I’m writing this with careful precision, so please note that I am not endorsing or encouraging such kinetic conflicts, but I do have reason to believe that if United Nations troops are unleashed upon the streets of America, many armed Americans will actively seek them out and deliberately kill them.

Call it “America’s immune system,” if you will, in the sense that America’s defenders will be activated by the presence of foreign invaders on U.S. soil. Many police officers and soldiers have sworn an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. If UN troops are activated on U.S. soil, there’s no question this will be perceived as an active invasion of the homeland… and will be met with fierce resistance in all the ways you might imagine.

Again, I’m not endorsing or encouraging any particular actions, but I am analyzing the most likely outcomes from such a scenario. There’s no question in my mind that many of America’s Second Amendment defenders are going to see such “foreign occupation” as a GO SIGN for active elimination and / or expulsion of UN troops from U.S. soil. UN soldiers, in other words, will likely be actively hunted and killed on sight. (Again, for the record, this is an educated analysis, not an endorsement of such actions. Don’t quote me out of context.)

This, of course, may be precisely what totalitarian-minded Democrats like Boykin want to see happen, because once a few UN troops have been killed, all armed citizens can be designated “domestic terrorists,” justifying an even larger UN presence and occupation across America (combined with a nationwide call for gun confiscation, of course). The UN occupation, in fact, may be an attempted false flag operation to invoke an armed response (followed by nationwide martial law).

At that point, things probably devolve into a full-fledged guerilla war across America, pitting determined and heavily armed U.S. patriots against poorly trained, highly corrupt and barely-motivated UN troops (who are already widely known as child sex slave scumbags and rapists, all across Africa and Europe, by the way). The battle may not even last very long, as UN troops are no match whatsoever for determined U.S. military veterans and patriots. Many law enforcement organizations will even join with the patriots in such a scenario. Sadly, a lot of innocent Americans will likely be caught in the crossfire of all this, which brings me to my next point…

What will YOU do if your city is suddenly transformed into an active war zone?

The Cook County buffoon Boykin seems to have no clue about the unbridled bloodshed and violence he’s about to unleash, starting in his own city (Chicago). Apparently, he wishes to make Chicago ground zero for the next kinetic war in America. How he manages to convince himself this is somehow going to keep minorities safe is beyond all comprehension. Then again, in order to be a political leader in Chicago, you have to be incredibly irrational and somewhat deranged in the first place. To expect these people to logically think through their own demands is to expect the impossible. If they really knew what they were doing, after all, Chicago wouldn’t have already collapsed into something resembling a Third World country in terms of homelessness, widespread violence and economic collapse. (Chicago is right now the murder capitol of America, even though it is stupidly designated a “gun-free zone” by Democrats.)

My advice to everyone reading this? Sell your damn Bitcoin and buy some preparedness gear. Have a bugout bag and a plan to walk out of the city (yes, walk). If all this goes down, you likely won’t have any early warning whatsoever, and you may suddenly find yourself a prisoner of your own city, lumped in with a wave of armed scumbags and out-of-control hoodlums who are looting or raping everything in sight. And that’s just the UN troops I’m talking about, not even mentioning the inner city gangs yet.

That’s the day you’ll wish you had a compass, a reliable firearm, a hundred hours of training and several spare mags of ammo. If you’re not killed or molested by the UN troops as part of their “peacekeeping” recipe, you’re subject to being ransacked and murdered by the inner city gangs. Those who survive all this will be the men and women who can shoot attackers in self-defense, protect their homes and lives, and escape and evade the wave of human scumbags who are trying to occupy or destroy your city in the name of “peace.”

For my friends who are military contractors, by the way, this is one job you may want to pass on. Nine hundred bucks a day isn’t worth getting caught in a crossfire between UN troops and deranged gang bangers who have already sent all the cops fleeing. Even the ten loaded AR mags you normally carry on such short duration deployments still might not be enough. On top of that, your bosses will of course give you complete bulls##t RoE which means you can’t even defend yourself when you’re getting shot at. (Remember how infuriating that was in Iraq?)

Think twice before accepting any such assignment on U.S. soil, even if it’s offered at double or triple the pay rate. You can’t possibly carry enough ammo and steel plates to be safe in this scenario. Plus, this is of course the exact moment your super duper high-end red dot sight will lose its zero, causing you to have to engage targets at night with your clunky iron sights which are also painted BLACK as night, which is why you probably never really practiced enough night shooting with iron sights. So you’re basically screwed at this point. A paycheck is meaningless if you don’t make it out alive.

Stay home instead and defend your life. (Click to Source)

 

U.S. vetoes UN call for withdrawal of Trump Jerusalem decision

The Day of the Lord

Behold, the day of the Lord is coming,
And your spoil will be divided in your midst.
For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses rifled,
And the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

Then the Lord will go forth
And fight against those nations,
As He fights in the day of battle.
And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,
Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
From east to west,
Making a very large valley;
Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
And half of it toward the south.
Then you shall flee through My mountain valley,
For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal.
Yes, you shall flee
As you fled from the earthquake
In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.

Thus the Lord my God will come,
And all the saints with You.[a]

It shall come to pass in that day
That there will be no light;
The lights will diminish.
It shall be one day
Which is known to the Lord
Neither day nor night.
But at evening time it shall happen
That it will be light.

And in that day it shall be
That living waters shall flow from Jerusalem,
Half of them toward the eastern sea
And half of them toward the western sea;
In both summer and winter it shall occur.
And the Lord shall be King over all the earth.
In that day it shall be—
“The Lord is one,”[b]
And His name one.

10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem[c] shall be raised up and inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.

11 The people shall dwell in it;
And no longer shall there be utter destruction,
But Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem:

Their flesh shall dissolve while they stand on their feet,
Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets,
And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

13 It shall come to pass in that day
That a great panic from the Lord will be among them.
Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor,
And raise his hand against his neighbor’s hand;
14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem.
And the wealth of all the surrounding nations
Shall be gathered together:
Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance.

15 Such also shall be the plague
On the horse and the mule,
On the camel and the donkey,
And on all the cattle that will be in those camps.
So shall this plague be.

The Nations Worship the King

16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

20 In that day “HOLINESS TO THE LORD” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holiness to the Lord of hosts.[d] Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.

trumpjerusalemdec012017

UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) – The United States was further isolated on Monday over President Donald Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital when it blocked a United Nations Security Council call for the declaration to be withdrawn.

The remaining 14 council members voted in favour of the Egyptian-drafted resolution, which did not specifically mention the United States or Trump but which expressed “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.”

“What we witnessed here in the Security Council is an insult. It won’t be forgotten,” U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said after the vote, adding that it was the first veto cast by the United States in more than six years.

“The fact that this veto is being done in defence of American sovereignty and in defence of America’s role in the Middle East peace process is not a source of embarrassment for us; it should be an embarrassment to the remainder of the Security Council,” Haley said.

The U.N. draft resolution affirmed “that any decisions and actions which purport to have altered the character, status or demographic composition of the Holy City of Jerusalem have no legal effect, are null and void and must be rescinded in compliance with relevant resolutions of the Security Council.”

Trump abruptly reversed decades of U.S. policy this month when he recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, generating outrage from Palestinians and the Arab world and concern among Washington’s western allies.

“In the wake of the decision of the United States … the situation has become more tense with an increase in incidents, notably rockets fired from Gaza and clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces,” U.N. Middle East peace envoy Nickolay Mladenov told the Security Council ahead of the vote.

EMERGENCY GENERAL ASSEMBLY SESSION

Trump also plans to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv. The draft U.N. resolution had called upon all countries to refrain from establishing diplomatic missions in Jerusalem.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu thanked Haley and Trump for the veto in a video clip posted on his Facebook page.

Israel considers Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital and wants all embassies based there. Palestinians want the capital of an independent Palestinian state to be in the city’s eastern sector, which Israel captured in a 1967 war and annexed in a move never recognised internationally.

Following the U.S. veto, Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said Arab states, which had agreed earlier this month to seek a Security Council resolution, would meet to evaluate the situation to determine what their next steps might be.

Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki said the Palestinians would seek a rare emergency special session of the 193-member U.N. General Assembly on Trump’s decision.

Under a 1950 resolution, an emergency special session can be called for the General Assembly to consider a matter “with a view to making appropriate recommendations to members for collective measures” if the Security Council fails to act.

Only 10 such sessions have been convened, and the last time the General Assembly met in such a session was in 2009 on Israeli actions in occupied Palestinian territories. Any outcome of such a session is non-binding, but carries political weight. (Click to Source)

72 Hour Countdown Until MASSIVE SCANDAL Breaks in Congress; 12+ Resignations Expected

scandalcongress

Congress’ human resources scandal is about to break wide-open and over a dozen members of the House of Representatives will likely resign within the next 72 hours.

I anticipate we will see the resignation of more than a dozen House members over sex-harassment and secret settlements.

Mark my words, the House is going to be rocked in the coming 72 hours. Tick Tock.

Last week news broke that Rep. Gregory Meeks (D-NY) had made a settlement with a former congressional aide that he fired after she reported being sexually assaulted at the business of a major campaign donor.

The first congressmen to go down in the post-Weinstein era of sexual misconduct was Michigan Democrat Rep. John Conyers, who eventually resigned after accusations against him snowballed.

Other notable politicians on Capitol Hill caught up in sexual misconduct cases:

  • Democrat Rep. Alee L. Hastings (FL) — The Treasury paid $220,000 to settle allegations against him made by a former congressional staffer that claimed he “touched her, made unwanted sexual advances, and threatened her job.”
  • Republican Rep. Blake Farenthold (TX) — The congressmen announced on Thursday that he was “retiring” after former staffers accused him of making “sexually graphic jokes” and berating his aides. He previously settled a sexual harassment claim made by an employee in 2014.
  • Democrat Rep. Ruben Kihuen (NV) — Multiple women have accused the Pelosi-backed congressman of sexual harassment.
  • Democrat Sen. Al Franken (MN) — Franken announced that he would resign last week after multiple women accused him of sexual assault. Franken has still not resigned despite his promise to do so.
  • Republican Rep. Trent Franks (AZ) — Resigned after he reportedly made women uncomfortable by asking them to be a surrogate mother.

My former colleagues in the Intelligence Community have told me that the “dirt” on some of these people is so scurrilous, they can’t imagine how they ever got elected in the first place.
