Thousands of fleeing Muslims have died while in the process of escaping from Islamic extremism in the Mideast in boats.
But, in the now rather commonplace media act of fleeing from the facts, recent news reports from the Mediterranean Sea area state that a large number of refugees from Sub-Saharan Africa and the Mideast have drowned while trying to flee from "poverty."
Yes, indeed, it would seem that Islamic extremism, which has been slated as being non-existent by President Barack Obama, has been re-defined by the elites as "poverty" in order to avoid any further damaging references to Islam.
According to Obama, "Islam is not part of the problem in combating violent extremism -- it is an important part of promoting peace." This, however, boldly assumes that the world can leverage Islam into halting its characteristic promotion of both the bloodshed and genocide which has necessitated the Muslims fleeing from "poverty" [or Islam] to Euro-Christian nations and real peace, in the first place.
The actual real peace, by the way, is almost exclusively found in a Western world primarily anchored within the precepts of Christianity, which still, at least for a while longer, subscribes to a belief in Christ at a rate of around 75%.
This notwithstanding Obama's constant if not insistent slander of Christianity in favor of Islam.
In fact, Obama resolutely believes that Islam is an important part of the "fabric of America," (especially those fabrics that possess flame retardant properties) we might add.
In a news report from Reuters, the lead paragraph of this particular story on "fleeing" Muslims states the following:
"700 people were feared dead after a fishing boat packed with migrants capsized off the Libyan coast overnight in what officials said may be the Mediterranean's worst disaster as thousands flee poverty...."
So, it would seem that "poverty" is the media's newly re-versioned buzz word for what is actually called "radical Islam," or should that be just Islam?
Many of those refugees who were drowned did, in fact, include Christians who were and are even now being flung from the fleeing boats by "moderate Muslims" seeking refuge from their "more radical" Muslim brethren. So, maybe the moderate Muslims, who allegedly don't believe in violence against infidels, were feeling just a tad bit grumpy while in the process of fleeing, which necessitated the whole flinging Christians from boats thingy.
It was all just a basic misunderstanding, as Obama would most likely say, they were merely trying to teach the Christians how to swim, while fleeing, being the ever- consummate Muslim multitaskers that they undoubtedly are.
Most especially, in addition, since in the case of the moderate Muslim refugees, it's well beyond difficult to fit a hungry lion or crucifix or even guillotines onto an already overloaded boat while in the process of desperately fleeing for one's life, due to "poverty" [or Islam].
So, flinging Christians overboard while lacking the slake of an undeniable Muslim craving for blood, still gets the job done, and quite efficiently while also feeding the hungry over-fished sea AND while simultaneously reducing the human population, which should make all of the raving environmentalist whacko's Islamic green with abject envy.
However, the EU was not meaningfully concerned about the extremists coming to their shores to spread more "peace" [or Islam] but were in fact blaming themselves for the whole rather loathsome spectacle, says Reuters:
"More EU countries must take responsibility for the refugee situation," said Sweden's Minister for Justice and migration Morgan Johansson, who called for an expansion of the EU's Triton border protection program, which only operates within 30 miles of the Italian coast.
So, according to Sweden's ministerial brainiacs, the relative stability and wealth found in Europe is what has certainly tempted these unfortunate Muslims to flee their murderous homelands. But never mind the surfacing fact that the US Democrat party and Sweden's elite apparently have much in common, most especially a shared and unabashedly splendid lack of critical thinking skills.
Even more tragically ironic might be the fact that while the Jews are now fleeing Europe, Muslims seem to be flowing in at a chaotic pace, to fill the void.
But, before our dear readers' alarm sets firmly in place, there does appear to be at least a bare modicum of sanity which yet remains in Europe. Reuters goes on to point out that "Libya's lawless state, following the toppling of former leader Muammar Gaddafi in 2011, has left criminal gangs of migrant smugglers free to send a stream of boats carrying desperate migrants from Africa and the Middle East."
Ah, so it's the fault of all those smugglers!
What they failed to mention, in the story, was the fact that it was Europe under NATO and with the help of our ever-fearless toppler-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama's overpowering mental skills and unparalleled foreign policy acumen, who bombed Libya into torrid submission in the first place.
Obama's efforts were just enough to enable radical Islamists elements to kill Libya's leadership, thus, thereby allowing all of the mayhem and chaos to ensue in both tearing the country apart while setting the stage for yet another Muslim Brotherhood takeover, and this time it might actually take!
Which, by the way, also led to Hillary Clinton's now infamous Benghazi debacle which is still under investigation and might even reach some bit of fruition, at least if Hillary hadn't expunged her server of all of those damning emails mostly dedicated to Yoga and Chelsea's wedding.
But, it wasn't the first time Obama has brought his uniquely unformidable skills to bear on behalf of some soon-to-be beleaguered nation. Remember, it was also Obama who provided the chief impetus in de-arming Ukraine which would ultimately allow Russia to attack and invade the de-fanged nation without either hesitation or worry of being meaningfully resisted.
This, despite the fact that Obama was a signatory to an agreement pledging to defend Ukraine in the event of attack.
Yes indeed, remember, it was back in 2005 when Obama pulled the wascally wabbit of impending invasion out of Saul his Alinsky hat-of-tricks.
The point by point, in this case, comes to us by virtue of the UK Daily mail from a March, 2014 article:
Great job, Mr. Obama!
Even better? Well, lets take a look at what happened in Egypt when Obama finally called for Hosni Mubarek to step down, which allowed the Muslim Brotherhood to slither into place and wreak economic havoc and misery on Egypt to such a degree that it would require an Egyptian Miltary takeover in order to oust Obama's Muslim Brotherhood counterpart, Muhammed Morsi, from dictatorial power.
Economically ravaged and systemically bereft, Egypt has never been the same, nor will America be, under Obama's transformational efforts, at least not for a long while yet, but take heart.
In Obama's latest bag of tricks, the President has been embroiled in an an effort to create a false "gentleman's" agreement with the Imams in Iran, in order to craft a paradigm into place which will prohibit any future Israeli attack on Iran.
While many believe that Obama is seeking to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear capability, Obama has in fact been hiding the fact that Iran is actually only 3 months away from obtaining offensive nuclear weapons. Obama's illusory agreement would theoretically disallow an Israeli strike on Iran due to the quasi-treaty in place with Israel's top ally, America.
This, thus allowing the ever tricky Mullahs time to finally formulate their nuclear ambitions to eventually, if not accurately, strike Israel (and the US, later, of course) while also igniting a nuclear arms race in the Mideast, the likes of which, the world has never seen.
Obama has almost two years left in which to complete whatever the hell it is that he's trying to yet achieve, assuming the US can make it to the end of Obama's term, relatively intact. But, Hillary is well on the way to rescuing us all from this dystopian madness, in 2016.
Yes indeed, Hillary only recently achieved the true pearl in her necklace of Democrat support for the 2016 campaign, in the form of "Hookers for Hillary"
See? Don't you feel even more confident, now?

It began in a tiny little seacoast research town in Connecticut called Lyme, back in 1975.
Hundreds of children had become mysteriously stricken with what appeared to be juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. Researchers soon discovered that the arthritis was only the chief symptom of a brand new disease most commonly associated with children who played in and about the forests of Lyme.
From there, researchers zeroed in on a tick that had spawned the transmission of this relatively new virus. The malady would soon become known as Lyme disease; its dreaded tell-tale signature a 'bulls-eye rash' delivered from the bite of an infected deer tick.
Since the advent of Lyme disease in 1975, the illness has inflicted more than a quarter of a million individuals with a minimum of approximately 20,000 new cases per year.
But why did the disease only meaningfully emerge in 1975, and why in Lyme, Connecticut?
There's much more to this story than just the well beyond odd emergence of a new tick-borne virus discovered in one of the most highly developed areas in the US, if not the planet.
In 1952, the Army Chemical Corps reactivated the now notorious Plum Island Animal Disease Center, which is located on a bird haven isle only a few miles from and adjacent to Lyme, Connecticut, on the same island which also houses Fort Terry, a biological warfare defense research facility.
During the Cold War, the combined center was used as a secret biological weapons program targeting livestock, which would allegedly feature strange genetically mutated creatures washing up on the shores of the US mainland, making Plum Island the controversial center of numerous well-founded conspiracy theories and books related to a biohazard warfare conspiracy.
The Montauk Island Monster
In 2003, the entire facility was placed under the authority of the US Department of Homeland Security. From there the facility was eventually destined to be moved to a newer, updated, bio-warfare facility located in Kansas, near an existing bio-warfare lab, and where construction and perhaps even some operations have already begun.
Plum Island is now for sale by the US government.
But, it's here, on the eastern shores of Connecticut, very near Plum Island, where a new and perhaps even more alarming story is now emerging.
On April the 7th, CBS News New York began reporting on a new and untreatable tick-borne virus that has been re-discovered in the various areas around Lyme, Connecticut. This relatively new virus, now labeled as the "Powassan tick-borne virus" is resistant to all known types of treatment. The disease can be fatal and is transmitted within hours of the tick's bite.
A deer tick infected with Lyme disease leaves tell-tale rash
Once again, the deer tick has been identified as a possible carrier of the new disease. In the case of this virus, and unlike Lyme disease, there are no visible symptoms from onset; however, once onset begins, some victims will suffer from both encephalitis and meningitis, two afflictions which can easily become terminal.
Symptoms for the virus include headache, nausea, and fever.
Even more interestingly, while the CBS report states "there have been no reported cases of the disease," later in that same report the story indicates that there were 12 human cases reported in 2013, which suggests that while researchers have been aware of the lethality of this new virus, the reports are only now trickling into the public domain meaningfully.

Moreover, while the researchers have not addressed the uniqueness of such a disease emerging lethally in the American northeast, they also appear silent on the odds surrounding two lethal tick-borne diseases emerging from within the same region, near the epicenter of a bio-warfare lab founded to produce just this type of plague.
But while the extraordinarily rare Powassan virus has been known to exist since about 1958, why the sudden insistent emergence near Lyme, Connecticut, of all places?
The two towns indicated where the new tick-borne illness has emerged are Bridgeport and Braden Connecticut; both towns lie within 50 miles of Plum island, and both are practically on the seashore. Lyme lies mere minutes away from both towns, alongside a river that feeds into the Atlantic.
In fact, Lyme, Connecticut is located about 20 miles away from Plum Island, while Bridgeport is located about 40 miles away, and Braden a scant 25 miles away from the island.

So, is there a new Devils Triangle of tick-borne illness, situated right here in the US with Plum Island at its epicenter?
The causative factor in this particular case being that ticks are routinely used in genetic research due to their ability to spread disease. According to Wikipedia, "Lab 257, a book written by Michael C. Carroll, has alleged a direct connection between Plum Island Animal Disease Center and the outbreaks of at least two other infectious diseases: West Nile virus in 1999, and the Dutch duck plague in 1967."
While these facts may seem fantastic enough, there's even more to this story.
As reported back in December of 2014, we noted another rather bizarre "happenstance" surrounding this same story.
The now ubiquitous Lone Star tick
The Associated Press reported in August that a specific type of tick, which is normally found in the American Southwest, is now appearing all over the US; however, it's what happens after the tick bite that has stunned even physicians.
The infected tick can cause an allergic response so terrible with its bite that it can send an individual into anaphylaxis, which is a life-threatening allergic reaction.
However, the reaction occurs only if the bitten individual eats red meat and, even more unbelievably, it takes about six to eight hours for the reaction to take place.
Much as with Lyme disease, the allergic response is appearing all over the US, but only from a creature known as the "Lone Star Tick." The effects from the bite appear to be ongoing with regard to the extraordinarily odd red meat allergic reaction.
Newer Tick-Borne Viruses Emerge
Regarding the now newly ubiquitous "Lone Star Tick" there is a bit more to the story, from a website called Preventdisease.com a research specialist and consumer advocate, had this to say:
Researcher and entomologist Jaime Lombard says the ticks have been in circulation for a few years however the latest crop released are becoming more potent. "Scientists have been experimenting on ticks since the 1960s because of their ability to spread disease. Since then, genetically engineered ticks have become more potent and scientists can create human disease almost at will," he stated.
Shortly after the National Bio and Agro defense facility had moved its operations into Kansas, two new potentially fatal tick-borne diseases emerged in Kansas.
From the AP comes the first story on the most recently discovered disease :
"A new virus thought to be carried by ticks or other insects has been discovered following the death of a southeast Kansas resident during the summer, public health officials said Monday.
The new virus is called Bourbon virus, after Bourbon County, home of the patient who died. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said the patient's symptoms, including fever and fatigue, were similar to symptoms from other tick-borne diseases.
The Kansas health department said testing by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed that the patient had a virus not previously identified. Health department spokeswoman Aimee Rosenow said it's still not clear how much the Bourbon virus contributed to the patient's death.
"This was the first known instance and the only confirmed case," Rosenow said. "This is a new virus, and we are still learning."
The health department declined to identify the victim of the virus or provide details about the case, saying it was protecting the privacy of the patient and family members."
Even worse, there is also yet another tick-born disease, which has emerged in Kansas as well, called "The Heartland Virus." This story from the Fort Scott Tribune:
The Heartland virus is also a relatively new tick-borne virus that is carried by the Lone Star tick. According to the CDC, there is also currently no vaccine or medication to treat or cure the Heartland virus.
But, more interesting might be the proximity of the Bourbon viruses' initial hot zone, which is a knight-like move of only about 200 miles away, from Manhattan, Kansas.
The Heartland virus, originated 182 miles away from Manhattan Kansas, in an almost geometrically identical movement compared to the Bourbon Virus.
The new bio-engineer warfare center located in Manhattan, Kansas, lies very near the geographic center of the US.
So, is there a specific type of causation involved?
The US government has long been associated with extreme duplicity with regard to human experimentation in cases ranging from the Tuskegee syphilis experiment, to the Government's 1950 spraying of harmful bacteria over the population of San Francisco causing rampant pneumonia and even civilian deaths.
In 1957 there were numerous radioactive fallout tests which resulted in an epidemic of thyroid cancer; in 1971 a radiation test was conducted on poor black cancer victims. There were also the US military mustard gas experiments on our fighting men from 1942 to 1944, plus the MKultra experiments on mind control from 1953 to 1974.
In fact, the US government has conducted a wide range of civilian tests from a variety of hazards over numerous populations all throughout the 20th century. The question, inevitably becomes, has the US finally stopped experimenting on its population or will the 21st century mark a new era of government experimentation?
Now, with the US government's latest involvement in nationalized healthcare under the auspices of Obamacare, perhaps the sky is no longer the limit.
A Confluence of Happenstance...
When we take the various components of these new illnesses and link them together, we find, at the very least, a series of new tick-borne diseases having commonly emerged.
Each located remarkably near government bio-hazard defense research centers, and each associated with insects routinely utilized as genetic research specimens due to unique attributes geared towards stealthily spreading debilitating illness.
The confluence of these diseases occurring within two separate geographic regions with bio-hazard warfare labs at each region's epicenter would seem to suggest something other than bizarre happenstance.

March 31st, 2015
By Barry Secrest
It has been a question and the subject of numerous books, movies, news articles and even a religious field of inquiry (eschatology) for over two millennia; what is the 'mark of the beast' and who is the 'Anti-Christ?'
Evangelists and Priests the world over have been both preaching and teaching on the subject for well over a millennium. Cults have been founded and ended over the question, along with false witnesses conveying a snake-oil salesman-like approach in order to profit lavishly from the question.
But no matter "who" or "what" one might singularly approach for an answer to the question, there will always be hundreds of diverging opinions, via voice and or print, in expert disagreement.
So, is there at least something of a definitive answer, today, concerning the mark of the beast?
While watching the signs closely over the years and engaging in numerous studies to at least understand the vagaries surrounding the question of the anti-Christ, it has always been difficult to assimilate at least something of a conclusion to this chilling question--that is--until the events of 9/11/2001 transpired.
On that particular day, which will live in infamy in America and something akin to glory across the Mideast, the question began to boldly answer itself. The enemy of the largest Christian nation on the planet had finally made its intent known, and that enemy holds in contempt virtually everything America holds dear.
But is radical Islam and its multitude of followers the legion of the anti-Christ prophesied in the Bible? To be certain, there are numerous other factions and faiths that have been outwardly anti-Christian, throughout history. However, Islam with its brutal dictates grounded in both Shariah and numerous passages of the Quran seeded towards brutal violence, seems to possess a singular brand of enmity unparalleled with regard to all things Judeo-Christian.
The United States has always embodied a large number of reasons to be hated by Islam, present leadership excepted, not the least of which being the fact that the US holds as one of its closest and most steadfast allies, the nation of Israel, as a singularly devout arch-enemy to its most ancient of foes.
Ultimately, we may now finally hold the knowledge to unlock what the Holy Bible foretold, well over two thousand years ago. Indeed, unlike most of America's historical enemies, this enemy is wholly different, and across numerous ideological fronts.
The Two Testaments
The tenets of radical Islam are devolved from an ancient political belief system which holds as its central element the death of those who do not believe as they do. Their natural foe is primarily comprised of two groups associated with two ancient Biblical Testaments. The Old Testament, which includes the Torah, is comprised largely of the first group of believers known as the Jews, while the New Testament is comprised of the 2nd group of "new covenant" believers known as Christians.
The two nations which primarily adhere, obviously enough, to these two ancient Testaments of the Holy Bible are Israel and the United States. While Europe still tenuously holds to these two belief systems to various degrees, they do so at a lesser and lesser rate. Meanwhile Paganism, Atheism, and New Age cultism are increasingly gaining in numbers of followership, unparalleled in modern times.
While a vast number of journalists, pundits, and bedeviled politico's, seem still to devote much of their time in trying to ascertain the question of why radical Islam hates both the US and Israel with such depth and intensity, they do so only because they invariably ignore the lessons of ancient history and these ancient religions, taken as a whole.
But then, even with the most obvious of historical elements between Judaism and Islam, there is in fact an even deeper form of enmity between these two adversaries and this element involves not only religion, but also race. In this instance, both the Quran and the Old Testament speak to the history between Isaac and Ishmael, as the offspring of Abraham, born in the year 1813 B.C. E., who is considered to be the father of the Jewish nation.
Abraham was, in fact, a 10th-generation descendant of Noah, and was born of the line from Noah's son, Shem.
When Sarah, Abraham's wife who was considered as one of the most beautiful women of that age, grew distraught over the fact that she couldn't conceive a child for Abraham, she insisted that Abraham take her handmaiden, Hagar a Princess and daughter of the Egyptian Pharaoh, as wife in order to conceive an offspring. Hagar soon gave birth to Ishmael, as Abraham's firstborn. It was only a few years later and in old-age that Sarah would eventually give birth to Isaac, who would become the father of the nation of Israel-- much as Ishmael would eventually become father to the Arab nations. However, enmity soon developed between Sarah and Hagar when Ishmael, then a teenager, was discovered by Sarah to be mocking her son, Isaac.
As a result of this enmity, Sarah urged Abraham to expel Hagar and Ishmael from their company, and Abraham sent the mother and son away into the wilderness, with the approval of the Lord. Many believe that it was here that the enmity between the Arabs and the Jews was incepted, and nothing has seemingly changed since that time.
The Bible further states, as an extreme point of reference, that Abraham's firstborn son Ishmael, would "be a wild donkey of a man, in that his hand will be against everyone and everyone's hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers."
This particular prophecy in no way can be disallowed in the modern-day, as terrorism worldwide has taken on an almost supernatural vehemence in its brutal nature.
Despite Islam's being often described as an ancient "Abrahamic faith," the Arab and Mideast nations, in eschewing the true God of Abraham and the Torah, would eventually adopt a number of pagan Gods to worship from ancient times.
One of these deities was an ancient desert Moon God known as 'Sin' or 'Suen.' Many biblical experts state that the modern Islamic Deity was eventually transformed from this ancient Arab Pagan deity, by Mohammed. The crescent moon which can be seen on most Islamic flags and other representatively-styled banners could be considered as a strong indication of this fact.
Moreover, it was only when Islam was firmly established as a religion in about 600 AD that the Arab Pagan Moon God under Islam's prophet was re-established into what the Islamic world would name as Allah. This is also why numerous efforts have been only marginally successful at trying to establish Islam's "Allah" and the Judeo-Christian "God of Abraham," as one in the same. Nothing could, in fact, be further from the truth, once the origins are firmly established from ancient history.
Indeed, the Quran, which was written in 610 AD, borrows heavily from the Torah, written almost 2,000 years earlier in 1312 B.C.E. Not to mention other ancient Jewish texts, which to some degree account for the Quran's inclusion as an Abrahamic faith, lent credibility only by its heavily borrowed manuscript.
But, all history aside, with 1.2 Billion adherents across the world, Islam as the foundation of the recurrent problem that is modern-day radical Islam, presents to us an essential quandary which is confounded by any conventional problem-solving techniques.
There is, in effect, no diplomatic solution for those who see unbelievers of their cult of an ancient desert Moon-God, as deserving of nothing other than complete annihilation, and it is here where the seeds of the Anti-Christ, are sewn, and in full measure.
Now, we have new evidence which many find well beyond compelling, regarding this ancient mystery, as the world slowly erupts into chaos.
In our efforts to understand the origins of the anti-Christ as it's applied to Islam, the New Testament book of Revelation gives us the initial clue. In verse 13:18 the verse states " Let him that has understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
This numeral, given as 666 has become commonly referred to as "The Mark of the Beast," but what does this number refer to, exactly? It is commonly accepted that the apostle John wrote the book of Revelation, as an exile on the Isle of Patmos, and as a vision from God. So, in effect, John saw a vision of these numbers as denoting the rise of the beast, and this would be the mark of that beast.
John's vision, as written, was later transcribed by the Greeks, as the characters "Chi Xi Stigma" in representation of the original text of the vision, which John saw.
As indicated, these numerals have long been a subject of conjecture and theory, a puzzling enigma, at least perhaps until now. Indeed, earlier interpretations of these numbers contained ambiguities. which seemed to defy explanation.
But, were these ambiguities initially conceived due to John's vision of exactly what he saw?
If we look at another symbol widely seen throughout the world in the modern day, we will notice similarities between the Greek representation and the below characters that are extraordinarily difficult to deny.
The characters pictured below represent the Arabic phrase "bismillah" followed by two crossed swords, in noting that Arabic, like Judaism, is read from the right to the left.
Bismillah, when translated, means, "In the name of Allah."
Notice the extraordinary similarities between the Greek "666" and the Arabic symbols "Bismillah."
When the symbols are laid out completely aligned, the similarities between the two symbolic configurations are well beyond stunning, in what they seem to portend.
What this line of reasoning suggests becomes evident, that John may have been writing exactly what he saw in the Arabic symbols, rather than the numerals 666.
This compelling evidence may further indicate why this particular revelation is now taking the Biblical world by storm. The YouTube video logically asks the question concerning the Lord's revelation to John:
"Would the Lord ask us to use wisdom and insight to identify the beast, and then give us a virtually unsolvable puzzle?"
Why would God, who taught against the occult practice of numerology, ask followers to use numerology to ascertain who the beast of the Anti-Christ, actually is? Or, would the characters of the text speak to an exact visual representation of what John actually saw, in his vision?
The video goes on to point out that the Creator does actively conceal knowledge until such time as the unveiling is appropriate. But even further is the fact that the Bible states that the "Mark of the Beast will cause all to receive a mark on their right hand or in their foreheads." (Rev. 13:16)
It is a common practice in fundamentalist Islam, for its practitioners to wear these badges or shields on their forehead or on their right arm, or both.
Within all of this relatively new information concerning Islam and 'the mark of the beast,' this revelation fittingly came to us from none other than a former Muslim, who just so happened to notice the remarkable resemblance between the Arabic symbols of "Bismillah, he had seen many times before his conversion, alongside the Greek letters written down in the book of Revelation, by John.
The video makes one other rather remarkable point that cannot be escaped with regard to the use of the Greek translation in its full context as it regards Islam and the mark of the beast.
Concerning the verse in Revelation ( 13: 18) at the heart of this enlightening piece of the puzzle, is the fact that if we once again look at the passage from the King James Bible, we read the following:
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six."
"The word count (from the Greek psephizo) in this verse may also be translated as reckon or decide. The word number (from the Greek arithmos) may also refer to a multitude (as in peoples or nations)"
So, if we use contextual wording in the verse as translated from the original greek passage, the verse would read as follows:
"Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding reckon the multitude of the beast: for it is the multitude of a man; and his multitude is in the name of Allah"
While no one can be certain of these findings and there will probably remain a great many individuals who might disagree with these interpretations, there can be little doubt that of all the various theories and suppositions which have evolved from this mystery of mysteries, for almost two thousand years, this theory interlocks quite remarkably with what we've seen unfolding in the Mideast, since Israel became a nation again in 1948.
In an earlier article from 2012, titled "The Daniel Project", we detailed many of the prophetical events and signs which have come true over the last 100 years, for the most part. With regard to the Beast. In our earlier article, we noted what the Bible states concerning the Beast, in this specific passage:
"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. (Rev. 13: 7)
But, there is even one additional inclusion which might be operative with regard to Islam, the beast, and the anti-Christ. We had earlier noted the fact that a number of experts believe that the ancient desert moon-God of the Arabs had been eventually morphed into the deity which eventually became known as Allah, by Mohammed. This ancient moon-God's name was "Sin" or "Suen."
There is one passage within the Book of 2 Thessalonians 2:3, which states the following:
"let no man beguile you in any wise: for `it will not be,' except the falling away come first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition."
Could this verse, which seems to describe the anti-Christ identity as "man of sin" be offering up yet another cryptic clue as to the origins of the anti-Christ with a solid link to this ancient Arab moon-God, Sin or Suen?
Many individuals believe that the New World Order under the auspices of the United Nations will help to bring about the horrific changes, as stated in these verses, into reality. Now, we may have several other pieces of the puzzle that clarifies and defines what is currently happening, and which easily belongs in the realm of the unthinkable.
"About the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies,and insist on their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition."

It's what many among us are trying to achieve while simultaneously endeavoring to understand what in the world is happening to a government originally devised as being "By the People and for the People," never mind a world now gone almost completely insane.
The [now] old mantra about Obama's 'governing against the will of the people' has been supplanted by none other than a bi-partisan capitulation of the entire government, which is unapologetically governing against the will of the people, and of course under the imprimatur of a self-important, paper-hanging, POTUS.
While the Republicans were voted in under the premise of a concerted effort to halt Obama's final completion of a promised 'transformation of America,' what we have actually seen is something approaching the exact opposite, in the GOP's less than spectacular effort.
Indeed, at every turn available, the Republicans have feigned extraordinary opposition initially, only to head-fake a complete capitulation in the end while protesting their complete innocence once it's far too late.
Even the very talented Glenn Beck has seemingly crossed over and is now seeking a moderated capitulation, which disdains those continuing to "dance with the one that brung him" in favor of a wider audience, catering to none other than CNN, and its ever waning influence.
Yes, you read that right; after devoting virtually his entire career to the defeat of Obama's autocratic menace, Beck has done an almost complete turn-about. Dually noted; Beck lost me back several years ago after accusing Conservatives of being racists for favoring Newt Gingrich over fellow Mormon Mitt Romney. Now Beck's gone one better in actually apologizing to Obama over past insults, and in the face of the President's ongoing abuse of traditional Americans across the country.
Beck saw two senior officers of his organization quit --ostensibly as a result of his, shall we say, change of heart.
According to a report from Breitbart:
Last year, Beck tried and failed to strike a deal with CNN. During that time, he attempted to moderate his image for television executives. He apologized for his inflammatory comments about Obama. As Breitbart News noted, Beck started positioning himself toward the political center, bashing Americans who were against illegal immigration during last summer’s border crisis. Trying to distance himself from politics, he also proclaimed on CNN that he would rather be Walt Disney than Edward R. Murrow or Rush Limbaugh.
Point-in- fact, Beck has moderated his tone and to a considerable degree. When we pointed these facts out in a recent news article, Beck had this to say back to us, in his defense:
"I am not 'becoming a moderate' I am a libertarian.
I believe man should be free to rule over himself.
I don't know how and when people missed this about me.
My own personal life choices may be very conservative, but I do not wish to impose them on anyone."
To this, we might only suggest to Beck that altering one's overall persona or beliefs in order to gain ratings can only sour what was formerly a best-selling brand.
Remember the 'new and improved' Coca-Cola?
Perhaps Beck might consider boldly asserting and maintaining himself as Glenn Beck "Classic," and let's not forget the Conservative Rock of consistency; good ole Rush Limbaugh, who probably couldn't change even if he wanted to. Oh, and lets not even talk about Beck's recent disapprobation for the Republican Party--he's been saying that for years.
Indeed, the rubric of the general dysfunction that we see exploding all about us, in a thousand different ways and across a thousand different fronts, point to an ever-expanding existential threat to America, as a viable political entity.
Moreover, the wobbly axle about which all of this jealous dysfunction seems to rotate is none other than President Barack Hussein Obama.
Point being, nothing, these days, is as it seems...
In essence, anything seemingly associated with America's success can now be denoted as Obama's failure, at least in Obama's mind, and that ongoing failure is what drives the GOP into apparently piling onto Obama's mad dash towards utter oblivion for the US.
Mainline Americans everywhere are rapidly losing faith to the point of morosely stating "what's the point? Nothing will be done about this," and the problem, at least thus far, is that they are nothing if not completely correct.
Oh, we do have glimmers of hope, from time to time, such as when the Republican-controlled US Senate, under the new quasi-leadership of Sen. Tom Cotton, broad-sided Obama recently with "An Open Letter to Iran" which warned the Iranians that any deal Obama might make concerning their nuclear program would be meaningless unless it were approved by their august body.
They were pilloried, by the Left, as traitors for their truthfulness (by those who have always been the traitors-in-fact, it should be pointed out)
However, the even more fascinating thing here might be the fact that only 47 Senators signed off on the letter which was not sent to Iran, but rather, posted on Sen. Cotton's website.
But, what about the rest of the Senators?
Here, Obama addresses the Iranian People on his and Michelle's celebrating the annual Iranian new year tradition of Nowruz, the only mystery being that Obama is not from Iran, nor is he Persian --oh! He also threw in that Iranian nuclear weapon thingy as a side issue.....
What is clear is that Obama is both now doing and has done the unthinkable; his rejection of Israel while embracing America's enemies in Iran and other terror-supporting states, clearly points to the fact that Obama has joined the world's axis of terror--and now the President somehow thinks he can pull America along into joining with him.
And what does Congress do?
While we do hear complaints here and there, what we don't see is any true action. While our now semi-insane left-wing media cheers the President along , there is a movement within the Democrat party to halt Obama's Islamist-enthralled impetus, but is it truly anywhere near enough to be effective? And what of the growing Deficit that actively threatens our national security?
No one seems to be talking about the Manchurian candidate's Cloward-Piven agenda, while the stock market continues to nervously gyrate much like Hillary during a press conference. But, where is any serious concern towards the American apocalypse we are inevitably declining into?
Maybe these folks know something we don't--perhaps there's some huge comet or asteroid barreling towards the earth and they've lost the will either to care or fight, who could truly know? Or maybe they're merely a plurality of self-interested cowards who've been completely co-opted. Possibly it's associated with one of the many search terms that appear in our analytics concerning "Boehner's being blackmailed" by the administration--they supposedly have dossier's on every political figure.
It's all enough to give traditional America a migraine, or worse.
As a result of all of this, and at present, the Conservative base of the Republican Party is about as ill as a hornet's nest, in addition to being fit to be tied. What in the bloody hell is going on, here?
"The faithful Worship at Obama’s own throne"
The queerness has even stretched into the Democrat party for a change, and that's not meant in a literal sense, although, for Heaven's sake, it would be accurate if it was intended that way. Granted, they were all well beyond odd even before all the madness began back in 2008, when they fashioned those weird Greek columns across Obama's coming-out party stage, at the Democrat convention.
Little did they know that their confabulation actually hearkened back to Hitler's inauguration stage in Nuremberg.
"Tribune at the Zeppelin Field in Nuremberg (Click for more info)"
And yet, little did they know that Hitler's original stage was none other than what is referred to as the original "Seat of Satan" in Pergamon, Turkey.
"Pergamon Altar – Satan’s Seat of the Book of Revelation"
Was it all merely an accident, or was it truly intended that way, or was it divine providence sending us a hint of things to come, in each essential case?
Moreover, the weirdness gets even more bizarre in that a preponderance of the Democrats have actually turned on one of their icons, Hillary Clinton, and just when she would seem to need them most--going into her illegal email SNAFU---which, of course, Obama only heard about on the news (after chief advisor Valerie Jarrett outed the illegal server to the media)
At this point, just about everyone has probably heard of the stink that has been brewing since a congressional hearing outed the fact that Hillary had illegally used a personal email server, instead of the one that the State Department paid millions for, to contain and monitor government emails.
When challenged on this fact, Hillary stated it had nothing to do with covering up anything and [allegedly] offered her emails to the government, at least in public, while forbidding any government look at her server.
But, as fantastic as this may sound, it's not Hillary's usurpation of the law that has Conservatives flummoxed. Hell, things wouldn't be right if Hillary weren't doing something against both law and sensibility; she's done that all along and gotten away with it quite handily.
Rather, it's the fact that both the Democrats and the mainstream media have been all over this like flies on a fish head--now, that's new!
But then the queerness gets even queerer, you see, because now we have at least a cadre of establishment Republicans actually running something akin to a defense of Hillary against the hardline Democrats, while many within the Democrat Party seem to be on the attack against her.
Hey, if Gomer Pyle were here, he'd be saying "Shazaam!"
Instead, we have the closest political approximation of Gomer, that being possible GOP Presidential contender Sen. Lindsey Graham, saying it, while almost defending her at the same time and admitting that he has "never sent an email."
And then, for the piece de resistance, we have the punditry in general wondering about all of this, and even more, in complete and total exasperation.
So what is going on with all of this?
Well, I believe it falls back to where we began, and it involves essential truths.
In basic physics, one of the rules of the universe states that "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction." What many people seem not to fully understand is the simple fact that the rules of physics also govern the natural rules of politics, in that the same set of principles quintessentially applies.
It is an essential truth that the natural balance in nature, as in the natural balance within the law and politics, is always the thing being sought. When the balance swings way out of sorts, then the natural laws of politics will seek to balance out the equation.
What the mainstream media has been withholding, on the one hand while espousing on the other, is the thing that is happening at present within the two-party structure of American politics.
The same thing that's been going on within the Right-Wing of American politics is also happening on the Left.
Just as we have Conservative and Progressive (Establishment) Republicans, so do we have Moderate or quasi-conservative Democrats, and their more radical brethren, the Progressive or radical Democrats. On the somewhere-left, what could be termed as old-school Liberals approximates quite fluidly with what we term as old-school Libertarians on the right.
The best way to understand the Left, in American politics, is to look at the reflections of the right as we understand them--well, except in the case of Obama-- fangs and all--who has no actual reflection.
In essence, as Conservatives grow almost nauseous at the thought of Jeb Bush running as the GOP's selection as President, so it is with a large contingent of Socialist-Democrats and their disdain for Hillary as the Democrat nominee.
Moreover, the problem is that the Democrats of old are simply gone, at least for now. Indeed, we have what we've frequently described for many years as a Socialist-Democrat Party ( much as in the Eurozone) in our America of today. Nor is this exclusively the fault of Obama, but rather it is the symptom that brought about the ideological disease that was Obama's antithetical rise to power.
The world, under the nefarious confabulation of globalism, is now obliviously skewed off kilter
The Democrats--despite or perhaps because of-- being horribly skewed off-center is what has pushed the US into where it currently is, which is also why the general weirdness of everything seems to prevail, and across every possible front--which is also where what could be described as dumb and dumber, comes into play.
The exceptionalism of America, now solely represented by the Conservative political right in the US, might be the only thing that can eventually save America from herself, and is the only elixir that might inoculate the nation from being completely consumed by a jealous and hating world. It is America's foundation of Judeo-Christian ethos that is the active ingredient, as well as being both cure and shield, from a world gone increasingly insane.
Is it any accident, that the world's most Christian nation (America) and the world's most Jewish nation (Israel), seem to also be at the heart of the world's most actively directed hate? Better, are these two nations not also two of the world's most actively blessed?
However, it's these very things as well that nets the balance of Obama's misguided hate, and he will try to leverage America as far as he possibly can, into the world's axis of terror.
The impetus that brought Obama's surge onto the political scene has had an almost supernatural effect on America, itself
The US has joined much of the world as being haphazardly toggled into becoming extraordinarily out of sorts, in every way imaginable, and most can't seem to obviate right from wrong, so forget the imprimatur of ethical versus unethical.
Eventually, assuming we're lucky, there is the strong possibility that things can be righted before everything spins completely out of control. Among the many things that we can do as guardians of the Republic, is to keep the pressure on, and meaningfully.
Our votes along with relentless political pressure are the main thing, and the three-step plan (which we've been naturally following) is one that's simple.
First) The best way to bring balance back into the Republic and the Left-Wing of American politics is by voting as many Democrats as possible, out of office. The pressure is already on and the last three elections have seen this borne out, as both the House and the Senate have been retaken by Conservatives and the GOP.
Second) The next step is to vote as many establishment Republicans as possible out of office -- at least that we safely can. As we all can see, having an establishment Republican in office is not very much different than having a Democrat; this is why putting the pressure on to vote the establishment types out is essentially operative.
While Karl Rove euphemistically refers to it the GOP's capitulation as "tactics," it can more realistically be seen as nothing if not an overall tactical retreat, and therein lies the rub.
Put another way, what have we to lose? As both John Boehner has clearly exemplified in the US house leadership and McConnell in the Senate, at least of late, there's not very much, if anything of great stock in depending upon an establishment Republican to foment needed change. Indeed, it might be the closest thing to a lost cause if ever there were one.
Third) Keep tuning into non-traditional news sources; a few of our favorites being Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Breitbart, The Daily Caller, Newsmax, Redstate, The Heritage foundation and WND--these are just a few of many, and don't forget dear ole Conservative Refocus, of course, which has been around a little longer than The Blaze, although without the billions.
In this way we can continue to minimalize the effects that the mainstream media have had on the flow of information.
The next iteration of the US Fourth Estate, Ladies and Gentlemen, will eventually become more culturally centered and traditional--at least more so than the current hard-left-of-center that we have in the media of today, as the fall-off hastens.
The main thing is--stay completely away from the traditional network newscasts to include ABC, NBC and CBS News-- they know when you tune in and are funded by your watching them in the form of advertisements--so don't.
Heavy doses of knees-on-the-floor-prayer (sans rug) could also be very meaningful, at this point.
Last but not least, there is one other bit of observed weirdness, which simply cannot be denied, and this speaks to the weirdness at play when we compare the two parties' basic instincts:
The Democrats will deceive the many in order to appease their party base, while on the other hand, the Republicans will deceive their party base in order to appease the many.
And this is where we eventually wind up at Dumb and Dumber, because in either case, the establishment elects' treasured offspring will eventually suffer the consequences of their outrageous fortunes being needlessly squandered over nothing but lies and mistruths.
The inevitability of death and taxes, in America, now have a sibling and its name is stupidity.
