The foolishness of those mask wearers

Bob Barney

I get a laugh out of the people wearing masks, because big brother told them too.  You see them wearing them while driving their cars - alone, you see them walking in the woods, or on a country road- alone, and you see them in their own homes - alone!  America has truly become a dumbed down nation, as the Bible predicted when God said, "My people die because of lack of knowledge.". That's more true than ever ! Today's WND story, yet another example of fools on parade in America.


Now Dictator Fauci blames anti-vaxers

1(LONDON GUARDIAN) The US is “unlikely” to achieve herd immunity to the coronavirus even with a vaccine, according to the country’s leading public health expert, who warned that a “general anti-science, anti-authority, anti-vaccine feeling” is likely to thwart vaccination efforts.

In an interview with CNN, Dr Anthony Fauci also said people not wearing masks was “a recipe for disaster” and said of the Trump administration’s attempts at contact tracing: “I don’t think we’re doing very well.”

The US reported a record number of new coronavirus cases in a single day on Friday, with 36 states reporting a rise in infections and Texas, Florida and Arizona particularly badly hit. With more than 2.5m coronavirus cases and more than 125,000 deaths, the US accounts for about 25% of all coronavirus cases and deaths worldwide.

The Mark of The Beast and Vaccines

Let me make this clear. The Mark of the Beast has to do with the Holy Roman Empire AND NOT IS NOT happening now. However, the forced wearing of masks, and what will be the forced vaccination of Americans in order to buy or sell, is a symbol of the Mark!  The United States IS THE "ISRAEL" of the Bible. The Jewish state in the Middle East IS NOT Biblical Israel!  They are Judah, according to the Bible.  The tribe of Joseph, owns the name "Israel."  God predicted that in the end times that the tribes of Joseph (which are mainly the anglo-saxons of Britain and America, would go into capitivity and foreigners would rule over us and enslave us, and then force us into the final slavery we will be under, with a ruler out of Europe. The end time beast is the revised Holy Roman Empire!  This is not conjuncture. This is biblical fact.  America, like ancient Israel is failing God, and choosing slavery rather than obedience to God.  This nation could easily be saved, if we will turn to God!  Unfortunately - we are turning to evil leaders who hate God and Christianity.  In his latest interview (below) he denies implanting any microchips in vaccines...  He doesn't have to!  He fails to mention that government can require everyone to get a vaccine, and if they don't (and have official paperwork to prove it) you will be denied to be in public or work!  Gates knows this, and is being deceptive.

The following quote IS FROM THE GATES FOUNDATION'S OWN PAGE!

Our Surveillance domain invests to improve the world’s understanding of the causes of mortality and disability through three activities: 1) unprecedented pathology-based surveillance through MITS in child deaths; 2) the extrapolation of that data nationwide through Countrywide Mortality Surveillance for Action (COMSA); and 3) improving the modeling and mapping of global mortality and disease data through the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).

The following story relates again the slavery that is coming to us all!

Trump signs order barring illegals from census count

(WASHINGTON TIMES) -- President Trump signed an executive action on Tuesday to prevent illegal immigrants from being included in the 2020 census for congressional apportionment, saying the U.S. shouldn’t give political power “to people who should not be here at all.”

The president said for the purposes of determining the number of House lawmakers from each state, it will be U.S. policy “to exclude from the apportionment base aliens who are not in a lawful immigration status.”

He signed the order in the Oval Office without a ceremony or the media present.

"Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people"

Bob Barney

Christian-america

John Adams warned that, "We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. … "Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other."  John Adams was not saying an American had to be a Christian, as Patrick Henry did, but he said that Americans MUST BE a MORAL and RELIGIOUS!  

Here is a brief BIO on everyone who signed the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE!   eye opening, and The PLAIN TRUTH!

 


Yes, Those billionaires lecturing you are slave owners!

Social justice warriors are toppling statues of slaveholders from 300 years ago while winking at modern-day enslavement on a massive scale.

I'm talking about the dirty little secret of how companies like Nike, Adidas, Apple, Microsoft, Samsung and at least 83 other multinational corporations have been linked to forced labor by Uyghurs in factories across China.

The report back in March by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute estimates that more than 80,000 Uyghurs, Chinese Muslims, were transferred to work in factories across China between 2017 and 2019.


BIG PHARMA, FORCED VACCINATIONS & POPULATION CONTROL

By Bob Barney

image from www.kindredmedia.orgIn 1986, The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program was established to protect the Vaccine manufacturers from any liabilities.

This program insured that the taxpayer would pay for all injuries the public suffered from Vaccines.

Once this protection was set in place, the government took control of the vaccine industry and Big Pharma profits increased by over 600%.

Is it all about money? Or is there something more nefarious at play?

We are witnessing today of the end of American Freedom.  Forcing people to wear masks, is just a start to the end of America, a prediction God made 3,000 years ago would happen.

Vaccines are next. You will be mandated to accept vaccinations, or you will not be able to buy or sell.  Vaccines, made from ABORTED BABY PARTS, is like a mark of the beast, which the Bible says one will not be able to buy or sell (or work) unless they receive this mark....  Interesting in that even TRUMP wants to force a mandated vaccine on all Americans when one becomes available...

How true will you stay with your God????  Just a question!

 

Stand up for God. Stand up for America- WE ARE LOST ISRAEL!

HUGE: MASSIVE CDC FRAUD UNCOVERED

CDC Grossly Overcounting Active China Coronavirus Cases Causing States to Keep Their Economies Closed Indefinitely In fact every 1 positive case is counted as 16!

image from www.thegatewaypundit.com

On May 21, 2020, the Atlantic reported that the CDC was over counting the number of cases of individuals with the China coronavirus:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is conflating the results of two different types of coronavirus tests, distorting several important metrics and providing the country with an inaccurate picture of the state of the pandemic. We’ve learned that the CDC is making, at best, a debilitating mistake: combining test results that diagnose current coronavirus infections with test results that measure whether someone has ever had the virus. The upshot is that the government’s disease-fighting agency is overstating the country’s ability to test people who are sick with COVID-19. The agency confirmed to The Atlantic on Wednesday that it is mixing the results of viral and antibody tests, even though the two tests reveal different information and are used for different reasons.

This is not merely a technical error. States have set quantitative guidelines for reopening their economies based on these flawed data points.

Several states—including Pennsylvania, the site of one of the country’s largest outbreaks, as well as Texas, Georgia, and Vermont—are blending the data in the same way. Virginia likewise mixed viral and antibody test results until last week, but it reversed course and the governor apologized for the practice after it was covered by the Richmond Times-Dispatch and The Atlantic. Maine similarly separated its data on Wednesday; Vermont authorities claimed they didn’t even know they were doing this.

BY INCLUDING BOTH ACTIVE CASES WITH CASES OF INDIVIDUALS WHO HAD THE CHINA CORONAVIRUS IN THE PAST, THE CDC IS GROSSLY OVERSTATING THE NUMBER OF ACTIVE CASES IN THE US.  UNFORTUNATELY, STATES LIKE TEXAS AND FLORIDA HAVE RESET THEIR ECONOMIC REOPENING TIME TABLES BASED ON THIS BOGUS DATA.

Apparently the CDC is still co-mingling these results.  Forbes reported last week:

A report released Thursday from the Government Accountability Office levied criticism at the CDC for combining active cases of the coronavirus and positive antibody tests, which may give a misleading view of nationwide testing and spread.

Hosea - Prophecies for America and Britain TODAY

image from dailyverse.knowing-jesus.com
Hosea Chapter 4 (understanding the prophecy in modern terminology.)

Although it is not expressly stated in the Book of Hosea, it is apparent from the level of detail and familiarity focused on northern geography, that Hosea conducted his prophetic ministries in the Northern Israel (Samaria) of which he was a native.

In Hosea 1:1, the prophet identified the kings that ruled during his prophetic ministry. The first four—Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah—reigned over the southern kingdom of Judah from 790 BC to 686 BC, while Jeroboam II ruled the northern kingdom of Israel from 782 BC to 753 BC. This indicates that Hosea lived in the middle to late eighth century BC (755–715 BC), making him a contemporary of the prophets Isaiah and Micah. Hosea is often seen as a "prophet of doom", but underneath his message of destruction is a promise of restoration. The Talmud claims that he was the greatest prophet of his generation.  The period of Hosea's ministry extended to some sixty years, and he was the only prophet of Israel of his time who left any written prophecy.

The identity of Israel (Samaria) is almost unknown today, but you can easily prove who the nations of the world descended from today! Read our study showing how England, America and many Western European countries are LOST ISRAEL.  So almost every time in prophecy that we read that something will happen to Israel in the End Days, it will happen to the USA, Canada, Britain and parts of Western Europe. Israel in end time prophecy is not the Jewish nation of Israel today!  The nation we call "Israel" is in fact named JUDAH in the Bible.  Jews do not have the claim to the name Israel!  11 of the 12 tribes of Israel ARE NOT JEWS!   Are you aware that the first time the word "Jew" is used in the Bible, that the "Jews are at war with the House of Israel to this day!"  Jews fighting Israel!  Did you know that?

When we read the Bible, which was written about 2,000-3,000 years ago, we often don't get the "feel of it" and how it relates to what is going on today, especially when reading prophecy about the end times and which nations are going to be involved. We read about Israel, of course, as well as Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Ethiopia and a list of unrecognizable nations and names. Yet what about nations like  China, Russia, Germany, Italy, England or the United States? Why aren't they mentioned in our Bible?  How can it be, if the Bible is the word of God, that he didn't know that these modern nations would exist? After all, if God knows the future, didn't God know about the United States or Europe or China? How can we trust prophecy or understand it when most of the time the scenario just doesn't fit what we know about the world today? Is there going to be another Assyrian Empire as the Bible claims? Does Assyria even exist today? Is Greece going to be the most powerful nation under another Alexander the Great as the book of Daniel suggests? It doesn't seem very likely to me and I am sure not to most of you either. Are we indeed living in the end times and how can we know what to look for and what today's news means? Will the world as we know it really ever end, as Jesus foretold?

Believe it or not, the Bible is as current and relevant today as the day when it was first written. The fact is that it is even more relevant today because much of what was predicted by the prophets was meant for today and beyond and not for the time these men were living! The hard-to-pronounce nations mentioned in the pages of prophecy written so ,long ago still exist, and you can prove it to yourself! God has given us tools to understand His predictions for our world and has had uncanny accuracy that nobody could ever duplicate without divine influence. God has rightly predicted:
the fall of Babylon

 The fall of Assyria

 The fall of Alexander

 The fall of Rome 7 times (it has now fallen five or six times depending on what expert you believe!)

 The Pope

 Radiation poisoning

 Chernobyl by name!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Global man-made pollution
 
 the Muslim religion and their fight with Europe known as Crusades and the final yet to come conflict between these two powerful regions

 The rise of England and the USA to be two most powerful nations ever to exist on this planet!

 That England would have a monarchy, and that monarchy would claim to be David's descendants and that they would sit on his literal throne over the same rock that David himself was coronated over.

 That the #13 would be important to the United States of America and that our form of government would be by election and not by a divine monarchy from the line of David.

To understand the Book of Hosea in today's world takes some knowledge of who he was, when he lived and when exactly he is talking about, and believe it or not, most of what he wrote was NOT FOR HID DAY!

The Study of HOSEA:

Hosea 1- 3: Hosea is ordered by God to marry a whore, who will not be faithful to him. To God, praying to false pagan deities is akin to human sexual adultery.  As we are torn apart to find out that our spouse has been unfaithful, God feels the same torment when His people are unfaithful to Him! Adultery symbolises pagan worship in the Bible. Both Israel (America, England and parts of Western Europe) and Judah (modern day Jewish nation) have worshipped pagan deities throughout history and have suffered for it.

Hosea 4: a translation to better understand how to understand Bible prophecy:

Hosea 4 Easy-to-Read Version (ERV)

The Lord Is Angry Against The United States, Great Britain and much of Western Europe

 People of America, listen to the Jesus' message to you. Jesus, the Lord God Almighty has filed a lawsuit against you listing the following charges: “The people in this land are not honest or loyal. They don’t really know God the Father or Me. They are always cursing, lying, killing, stealing, and committing adultery. They murder one person after another. So the country is like someone crying for the dead, and all of its people are weak. Even the animals of the field, the birds of the sky, and the fish in the sea are dying because of the curse upon you.  

 4 “Don’t point your finger at someone else and try to pass the blame to him! Look, priest, I am pointing my finger at you.

5  As a sentence for your crimes, you, the priests and ministers of My people will stumble in broad daylight as well as in the night, and so will your false ‘prophets’ too; and I will destroy the land.

“My people are destroyed because they have no knowledge. You so-called Holy ministers have refused to learn, so I will refuse to let you be priests for Me. You have forgotten the Ten Commandments, so I will forget your children. They became proud. They sinned more and more against me, so I will change their honor to shame.

8 “The priests rejoice in the sins of the people; they lap it up and lick their lips for more!

So the priests are no different from the people. I will punish them for the things they did. I will pay them back for the wrong things they did. 10 They will eat, but they will not be satisfied. They will commit sexual sins, but they will not have babies. This is because they left the Lord and became like prostitutes.

11 “Sexual sins, strong drink, and new wine ruin a person’s ability to think straight.12 My people are asking pieces of wood for advice. They think that idols, pieces of wood, or some horoscope will answer them! They have chased after those false gods like prostitutes and have left their own God. 13 They make sacrifices to other gods and worship money rather than Me. Your daughters will become prostitutes, and your daughters-in-law's whores for free.

14 “I cannot blame your daughters or your daughters-in-law for doing this, because your men go and have sex with the same whores and pay them. This is how foolish people destroy themselves.

The Shameful Sins of America and Great Britain who carry the name of Jacob or Israel

15 “Israel, just because you act like a prostitute doesn’t mean that Jews should feel guilty too. People, Don’t use the Lord’s name to make promises. Don’t say, ‘As the Lord lives …!’ 16 The Lord has given many things to you. He is like a shepherd who takes his sheep to a large field with plenty of grass. But you are stubborn, like a young cow that runs away again and again.

17 “The United States has joined Their politicians and so called holy leaders and rejoice in  sin; they lap it up and lick their lips for more! 18. Therefore, a mighty wind shall sweep them away;  and they shall die in shame because they have forgotten me and worshipped gods of money and greed.

END

 

My friends, believe it or not THIS IS the message of Hosea. Hosea is a prophecy for TODAY- for America, the England Commonwealth of Nations, Ireland, France, Denmark and Scandinavia!  It has never been fulfilled.  In part 2 I will show you why with more of Hosea. Chapters 5-7..   In Part 3 8-10, Part 4 11-12. Part 5 Chapter 15.

 

 


The 5th Month in God's Year Today!

By Bob Barney

image from roshchodeshnetwork.org

This is what the LORD Almighty says: “The fasts of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months will become joyful and glad occasions and happy festivals for Judah. Therefore love truth and peace.” — Zechariah 8:19

Fasting in the Bible has been a longstanding practice, in some instances tied to the observance of key festivals and holy days, but also as a communal response to tragedies and a call to repentance. References to fasting can be found in the books of Samuel, Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Psalms, and more. It was quite natural in ancient times for people to fast as part of their service to God. Spontaneous personal and communal fasts were also common.

Six official days, however, are also mentioned in the Bible as a time for fasting. So what are these fast days and why were they established to be observed for generations to come?

The first and most paramount of all fast days is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Of all the fast days, this day alone was prescribed by God in the Bible. In Leviticus 16:29 we are commanded to “deny yourselves” on Yom Kippur. This included eating or drinking, washing or bathing, marital relations, wearing leather shoes, and applying luxurious oils. As the name of the day would suggest, denying ourselves is part of the process of attaining atonement on Yom Kippur. This is a fast of repentance, and appropriately, the day is spent mostly in prayer and introspection.

Yom Kippur is considered a major fast day, it has only one other counterpart — the fast of Tisha B’Av, the ninth of the Hebrew month of Av, which is the 5th month in God's year... This fast commemorates the monumental events of the destruction of both the First and Second Temple in Jerusalem — both of which occurred hundreds of years apart on the same exact day. In truth, this day was destined to be a day of calamity as, according to Jewish tradition, it was on this day that the 12 spies sent by Moses to see the Promised Land returned to the Israelites with a bad report, causing the people’s hearts to turn away from God. Because of that, God barred that generation from entering the Promised Land and sent them back into the desert to wander for another 40 years.

Both the First and Second Temples were destroyed on this day as well as a host of other Jewish tragedies throughout history: the defeat of Bar Kochba’s revolt, thus ending Jewish resistance to the Romans (135 CE); the expulsion of the Jews from Spain and the onset of the Spanish Inquisition (1492); and more recently, the deportation of Jews from the Warsaw ghetto to the Treblinka concentration camps (1942).

 I often mention that God's calendar is NOT like any other calendar on earth today.  It is not the Roman calendar that we follow, or the equally pagan Jewish calendar that many churches believe is the calendar of God.  To read more about God's Calendar click here .  There is a mistake that those who follow a Jewish calendar has made, and that refers to the word for new moon.  That is a mistranslation, as the proper rendering should be NEW MONTH, as I did in The Plain Truth's Red Letter Bible.

The Hebrew word 'chodesh', which is Strong's Exhaustive Concordance simply means "new" or to "rebuild." Chodesh does not mean "new moon". It means 'new' with an implication that a month is about to begin again.

Originally, when the earth had a perfect 360 day rotation around the sun, and the moon's journey around the earth was exactly 30 days (today it is 29.5 days), new moons where on the new months. The calendar was in balance. However, probably after the flood, the weight of water slowed the earth rotational spin (this is NOT mentioned in the Bible) to 365.25 days a year and the moon's rotation to the present one of 29.5 days.

Calendar.1

The ancients noticed that the months were no longer 30 days and the years were not 360 days, but now over 365. A calendar needed to be made to reflect this. Egypt made the first perfect calendar, one Moses was very familiar with, which had 12 - 30 day months and then 5 days at the end of the year that did not count. This is also seen in Enoch's calendar (see illustration on left).God's calendar was like the Egyptian one except that year no longer started on the first day of summer, but on the first day of spring. Springtime is the birth of the new year in nature, as morning is the start of the day as well. The term for new moon became "new month" as the new moons and new months no longer matched up. This is not hard to conceive as the English word for month comes from moon! Yet our months have nothing to do with new moons! The same applies to God's calendar.


Today is The Sabbath Day! And Yes, it is for Christians

Does it make any difference WHICH day we observe -- or whether we keep it? Does the Bible establish SUNDAY as the LORD'S DAY? Was the Sabbath given for the Jewish people only -- while Christians are commanded to keep SUNDAY as the LORD'S DAY?

by Herbert Armstrong

image from i1.ytimg.comCERTAINLY MOST professing Christians accept SUNDAY as the New Testament Lord's Day. Moslems observe Friday. Some religions observe no day.

     But there are those who insist the seventh-day Sabbath is still binding. Failure to keep it, they claim, is SIN -- and the punishment is DEATH for eternity!

     Now that is a pretty serious claim!

     Few take it seriously -- but that does not disprove or dismiss the challenge. Have YOU ever seriously looked into this question?

     If someone tells me my house is on fire, I'm not going to laugh at him and refuse to take it seriously. I'm going to examine, and BE SURE! If he's wrong, then at least I shall KNOW my house is safe. I learned years ago that it can be very dangerous to carelessly ASSUME, or just take for granted. It's much wiser and safer to get all the FACTS, and then decide.

     And one's LIFE for eternity is much more precious than his house.

     Few realize, today, but the Sabbath vs. Sunday controversy raged during the first three centuries of the Christian era. Violence and bloodshed mounted. Millions were tortured and put to death over this question.

     WHO IS RIGHT?

     And, after all, does it make any difference?
 
                           
Changing Times
 
     Years ago I had to face this question. My wife said she had found, in the Bible, that Christians are bound to keep the Sabbath -- Friday sunset to Saturday sunset. I was shocked, angered. To me this was rank fanaticism. I had arguments -- plenty of them!

     "You can't tell me that all these churches could be wrong!" I said in confident indignation.

     I was challenged to look into this question -- to GET ALL THE FACTS! I was angered into serious research. I could not ignore the question. I had this question to live with! It had invaded my home!

     Immediately when this question is raised, numerous other questions flash to mind.

     Don't we have to adjust our religion to the changing times? After all, wasn't the Bible completely written some 1900 years ago? We live in a different world today! That's one argument. Yet, are we free to reason out our own religion? Are we going to render the decisions on our own fates, in the final judgment? Perhaps we'd better get the TRUTH!

     Some will ask, "How can this world, as it is now organized, keep the seventh-day Sabbath? The world is geared to SUNDAY."

     Or, "Suppose you're traveling on an ocean liner. Would you expect them to stop the engines and cease steaming forward at sunset Friday?"

     "What about public utilities in the big cities? Electricity, water, gas. Must the police departments shut down and let criminals have a holiday?"

     "Suppose the nation is at war. Should our forces stop fighting at sunset on Friday? The enemy might not see it that way!"

     "But hasn't TIME been lost? How can we know whether the Saturday of today is the same day of the week as it was at creation -- or in Moses' day? Hasn't the weekly cycle gotten mixed up since creation?" That question, too, will be answered with the PROOF in this booklet.

     "Anyway," one may reason in conclusion, "what possible difference can it make WHICH day, or WHETHER we observe it?"

     These questions -- and more -- must be answered! And will be, in this booklet. 

     First of all, in a world where established, organized Christianity observes Sunday, where perhaps most people do not seriously observe any day as really sacred, HOW CAN WE KNOW?

     Is there any SUPREME AUTHORITY, with the power of life and death over our eternity, with POWER to declare, and ENFORCE the right answer?

     By WHAT AUTHORITY do Christians observe Sunday; Moslems, Friday; Sabbatarians, Saturday; and others, no day?

     Is there any authority for observing Friday, or Sunday, or Saturday? It certainly is apparent all do not recognize the same authority.

The day the world changed forever: 75 years ago the first atomic bomb was detonated

75 years ago today, the United States led a secret operation code named 'Trinity' to test its first nuclear weapon in the New Mexico desert. A prototype for an atomic bomb had been completed by 1944 but the Army was unsure of its potential and decided to run a practice 'test' before they used them in the war against Japan. Due to a shortage in plutonium, there was only one chance to carry out the test properly and it took a year and a half preparation

Seventy-five years ago today, a group of physicists, engineers and Army personnel assembled in New Mexico's forsaken desert in the pre-dawn hours of July 16, 1945 for a top secret operation, code name: Trinity. Their goal was to detonate the world's first nuclear bomb.

J. Robert Oppenheimer, the 'father of the atomic bomb;' Edward Teller, 'the real Dr. Strangelove;' and Enrico Fermi, creator of the first nuclear reactor, waged bets on whether the blast would incinerate the entire planet or be a total dud.  

Tensions were high. Oppenheimer had not slept. Bad weather delayed the scheduled 4:00am detonation and with war raging in Japan, the men were under no illusions how much was riding on the bomb's success.   

Finally at 5:29am, an intense light followed by a sudden heat wave flashed across the remote desert. An enormous fireball tore through the night sky accompanied by a booming sound that echoed throughout the valley of Jornada del Muerto, or 'Dead Man's Journey.' The bomb, packed with 13 pounds of plutonium obliterated everything in sight with its awe-inspiring explosion equivalent to 21,000 tons of TNT. 

'Trinity' not only led to a quick end to the war in the Pacific but also ushered the world into the atomic age.  

As Oppenheimer watched the staggering explosion, he was reminded of a chilling line from Hindu scripture: 'Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.' 

Kenneth Bainbridge, the Trinity test director, turned to congratulate his colleagues: 'Now we are all sons of b***ches.'

Chinese Communists Pay Vatican $2 Billion in Bribes

6:10

ROME — Exiled Chinese dissident Guo Wengui alleged this weekend the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) “allocates $2 billion a year” to pay off the Vatican for its silence concerning Chinese atrocities.

In a June 20th interview on The War Room, Mr. Guo said the CCP earmarks massive sums each year to win the allegiance of foreign countries including the Vatican, Italy, and Australia. Among them, the Vatican receives up to 2 billion dollars from the Chinese Communist Party every year, he said.

“The Chinese Communist Party allocates 2 billion US dollars each year” to gain influence over the Vatican’s internal policy making and to pay for its silence on the CCP’s repression of religious freedom, said the controversial billionaire whistleblower.

Guo has previously stated that China has drafted a complete strategy for world domination known by the initials “BGY,” which stands for Blue (control the Internet), Gold (buy influence with money), and Yellow (seduce key people with sex).

Since 2014, the CCP has formulated internal policies to invest a certain percentage of trade with foreign countries in the BGY program to erode the local state system, Guo said Saturday, and the current BGY quota for the United States is 5%.

According to data from the U.S. Trade Office, the total trade volume between China and the U.S. in 2018 was $7.37 trillion. If calculated according to 5%, the amount used for BGY in the United States would then be about $36.8 billion, Guo said.

Guo also offered a similar calculation for Australia.

The dark side of 'the resistance'

Joe Kovacs rips the mask off the force behind rebellion
First published March 2019--rings even more true today!
By Joe Kovacs
Summer-of-resistance-map-600


Since the presidential election of 2016, the one in which a political outsider by the name of Donald Trump came from seemingly out of nowhere to become the highest elected official in the land, the powers that be who thought they were in control have been on a mission that can be summed up in a single word.

Resistance.

Those who oppose the agenda of President Trump (and his supporters, for that matter) have made no secret about the fact they're looking to staunchly withstand anything and everything proffered by this commander in chief.

In fact, in 2017, shortly after Trump's inauguration, they initiated a national campaign called "Resistance Summer," seeking "to bring Americans together to resist the powers that are trying to rig the system against working families. Our work is inspired and influenced by 60 years of civil rights organizing and resistance. We're hiring organizers across the country to build the Democratic resistance."

Trump himself has taken notice, saying on Halloween 2018, "Their whole theme: Obstruct. Resist. What the hell do you get out of that?"

We have seen the resistance manifest in all kinds of ways, ranging from name-calling and harsh rhetoric to people getting shot because of their political viewpoint. Here are some high-profile examples since Trump won the presidency:

Pop star Madonna said in a march in Washington, D.C.: "I am outraged. Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. But I know that this won't change anything."

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the White House press secretary, was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, merely because she works for President Trump.

A Julius Caesar play was reworked to have a Donald Trump look-alike getting repeatedly stabbed instead of Caesar.

Actor Robert De Niro had not-so pleasant words in his resistance of Trump, saying, "I'd like to punch him in the face," and then on national TV saying, "I'm going to say one thing: F*** Trump."

Stand-up comedian Kathy Griffin held up a bloody, severed head that was made to look like a decapitated version of Trump during a photoshoot. She now sells a line of merchandise all proclaiming "F*** Trump."

Aides and advisers to Trump have been investigated for alleged collusion with Russia, with some admitting to or being convicted of crimes as a result of a special counsel probe.

A supporter of Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders shot Republican Congressman Steve Scalise and four others on a Virginia baseball field, as the gunman was allegedly looking to kill his political opponents.

U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., had a less-than-civil call to action to resisters: "If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. You push back on them. Tell them they're not welcome anymore, anywhere!"

Brett Kavanaugh, after being nominated by Trump for the U.S. Supreme Court, faced severe resistance with claims of attempted sexual assault by a woman who could not remember key details of the alleged incident.

Barack Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder said of Republicans, "When they go low, we kick 'em."

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton defended Democrat tactics of fierce resistance, saying: "You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about."

These are just a few of the well-known comments and incidents.

Radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh  discussed the resistance to Trump, noting: "They call this the resistance, but this isn't resistance. We're so far beyond resistance now. These people are doing much more than resisting. They are literally turning the law upside down. They are ignoring the law when it applies to them. They are accusing people who have not broken the law of having broken the law and forcing those people to either cop pleas or defend themselves, and, in the process, go broke and lose their homes, destroy their families. All of this on no evidence that anything of the original charge that the election was tampered with and is therefore illegitimate, there's no evidence for it.

"It continues unabated. And as these people fail in every element that they try to get rid of Trump, what then happens? Trump becomes even worse. Trump is Hitler. Trump is no different than Mao Tse-tung. Trump is hideous. They keep throwing out these inane, insane, crazy allegations in their unstopping attempt, their never-ending attempt to create anti-Trump public opinion which will then facilitate them getting what they want, and that is him thrown out of office."

Now that everyone is well aware of the resistance, you might wonder about its source. After all, the viciousness is taking place at numerous levels across America and appears to be highly organized. And while there may be big-name politicians and plenty of money being spent to feed this vitriolic behavior, there is likely something else at work here you may not have realized.

There is an unseen player who is doing what he does best, resist. In fact, his name means "Resister."

The individual I'm referring to is none other than Satan the devil. Yes, the Hebrew word Satan actually means "an adversary, one who resists."

I realize most people in today's modern world don't think about this character as they carry on their everyday life, going to work, paying the bills and raising their family. But Satan is a very real individual, who is actually resisting and opposing all those who are trying to be obedient to God and His divine laws.

In case you're not familiar with the Bible, Satan was not always an enemy. In fact, Scripture says he was a cherub, which is an angel, and a perfect one at that.

As God says of him: "You were an anointed guardian cherub, for I had appointed you." (Ezekiel 28:14)

The very next line in Scripture indicates all was well with him until something foul was detected in his character.

"From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you." (Ezekiel 28:15)

Chapter after chapter of the Bible describe what wickedness is, and it can be summed up in a word that virtually everyone is familiar with, but they're not quite sure what it means. And that word is "sin."

You can try this experiment for yourself, asking a variety of people what the definition of sin is. You'll most likely get a different answer from each individual. But there is one place in the Bible where the meaning of the word is clearly spelled out. That verse is in the New Testament, in 1 John 3:4. Here it is from two translations:

sin is the transgression of the law (1 John 3:4 KJV)

sin is lawlessness (1 John 3:4 CSB)

Simply put, when anyone breaks any law or instruction from God, that person is sinning, engaging in wickedness, iniquity or evil. It's as simple as that. Opposing God and doing what He says not to do is an act of RESISTANCE or rebellion against the Maker of everything.

Thus, Satan, the original resister, was perfectly fine in God's eyes until he resisted and engaged in thoughts and activities contrary to the laws of God. He became wicked by resisting and rebelling against God.

As Job explained, "The wicked are those who rebel against the light. They do not recognize its ways or stay on its paths." (Job 24:13 CSB)

And since "God is light, and in him is no darkness at all" (1 John 1:5), the Bible makes it more than obvious that rebelling against the light (God) is wicked.

Satan has been leading a rebellion against God, convincing a large number angels to join him in his resistance.

"So the great dragon was thrown out ​— ​the ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the one who deceives the whole world. He was thrown to earth, and his angels with him." (Revelation 12:9 CSB)

The resister has been hard at work using all kinds of lies and deception to trick mankind, confusing people on virtually every issue, from the existence of God Himself to the ultimate destiny of human beings, which is to become part of God's own family, the children of God, to rule and reign with Him for eternity.

Satan has been resisting for thousands of years, and there's no indication he'll give up his rebellion and repent of his wickedness, even though a main message of Jesus is to love your enemies. Yes, we're told to love those who resist.

Perhaps what we're seeing in our physical world today in America is a picture of what God has dealt with for a very long time: the individuals He created are acting in a stiff-necked fashion resisting peace, law and order. We see lawlessness all around us, and even some groups are targeting law-enforcement agencies as somehow being oppressive, when the opposite is true. It's the ones who want to maintain law and order who are being attacked, in the same way God is the ultimate Lawman dealing with wicked opposition from those who don't wish to obey His instructions.

The apostle Paul reminded everyone: "So then, the one who resists the authority is opposing God's command, and those who oppose it will bring judgment on themselves." (Romans 13:2 CSB)

We all need to realize the world as we know it is not going to last forever. There is a time coming soon that God will be fed up with humanity's resistance and rejection of His ways, and He will put an end it to it in a fashion that won't be pretty.

As one famous prophet predicted: "There will be a time of distress such as never has occurred since nations came into being until that time." (Daniel 12:1 CSB)

It might be wise if we ask ourselves if today's so-called "resistance movement" is a manifestation of what's taking place in the unseen realm. Is it a picture of the demonic resistance by the devil against God Himself, for perceived injustice of some kind?

If it is, then we should be careful to make sure we're always on God's side, and never resist our loving Creator.

HPV could cause prostate cancer

Scientists find firm link between the disease and sexually transmitted virus for the first time

  • Findings suggest the HPV vaccine might help lower the risk of prostate cancer
  • Researchers based in Australia compiled all the results from 26 previous studies
  • HPV already causes certain cancers in men, including tumours of the genitals

Prostate cancer has been convincingly linked to the sexually transmitted human papillomavirus (HPV) for the first time.

Experts have found evidence that a significant number of prostate cancer cases are ‘highly likely’ to have been caused by the same virus that causes cervical cancer in women. And they say it may be transmitted to the gland through sex.

Research has found evidence that suggests the HPV vaccine may help lower the risk of prostate cancer

Writing in the Infectious Agents and Cancer journal, they concluded: ‘A causal role for HPVs in prostate cancer is highly likely.’

Prostate cancer, which kills 12,000 men in Britain each year, has previously been linked to genetics, environmental pollutants and lifestyle factors.

But the researchers said: ‘Although HPVs are only one of many pathogens identified in prostate cancer, they are the only infectious pathogen which can be prevented by vaccination.’

The team found 22 per cent of prostate cancerous tissue contained traces of HPV, compared with only 7 per cent of benign prostates.
