Although birds falling from the sky is not a Biblical prophecy of the end times, it certainly does feel ominous and apocalyptic.

Dead Birds in Louisiana

Dead Birds in Louisiana

An important thing to remember is that, while we may not know the reason for the sudden die offs of large numbers of birds–there IS a reason.  I also suspect that certain people may be starting to get nervous, wondering whether their actions are to blame.

Whether or not any of these things is to blame, I want to propose a few things that are potential hazards to the creatures we share the planet with. I am not attempting to provide an official explanation, or new conspiracy theory.  I am just throwing out my opinion, based on what I have heard and what I know.

(Disclaimer:  this is not a well-researched post I am making.  I am relating, from brief notes, what I have learned from recent news stories.  The rest, where no links are given, is based on what I remember from my previous study of Biology.)

First, let me summarize what I know about recent bird die-offs:

Here are some things these type of birds have in common:

  • They congregate in large flocks
  • They tend to migrate in winter
  • They are opportunistic feeders
  • Insects make up a large part of their diet in summer, but in winter they primarily eat grains and weed seeds
  • They settle on agricultural fields, and clean up what is left after the harvest
  • Birds eat more when it is colder–the oils in seeds help to fuel their metabolism, keeping them warm

An article about the Turtle Doves, that died in Italy, may give a further clue as to the cause:

”  . . . Nadia Caselli of the bird association said they appear to have overeaten sunflower seeds, which damage their livers and kidneys. The seeds are mostly waste from a nearby oil factory.”

Here are my thoughts:

  • There are chemicals that concentrate in oils–meaning that, of all the parts of the plant, the seeds (or more specifically, the oil in the seeds) will have the highest concentration of the contaminant.
  • Some of these chemicals are absorbed into the plant after it is sprayed, others are taken up from the soil and water, by the roots.
  • So, agricultural chemicals could be to blame.
  • Our global elite, in their attempts to create ever more power and wealth for themselves, have opened a Pandora’s box of new agricultural innovations–genetically modified plants are one of them.  (Also, genetically modified plants, especially those that are wind-pollinated, have escaped from cultivation and corrupted the DNA of non-modified plants of the same species living nearby. )
  • I am no longer up-to-date on what is happening in the world of GMOs (genetically modified organisms).  What I DO know is that the purpose of some genetic modification is to enable the plants to withstand the effects of herbicides, so that the field can be sprayed to kill weeds without harming the crop.  Although the crop plant may not be harmed, what chemicals are concentrating in its tissues, in the soil, and in the insects and animals that are exposed to the herbicides (either directly, or by eating the plant)?
  • Another type of genetic modification is to make the plant toxic to insects that eat that particular plant.  One particular bacteria, called ‘bt’, is effective in killing caterpillars and the larvae of flies and mosquitos.  By incorporating a ‘bt gene’ into a plant’s DNA, each cell of the plant then produces the same toxin that bt bacteria produce, and makes it deadly to its insect pests.  (I have heard, but can’t verify, that many of us now have that toxin in our gut flora–that the gene has actually been incorporated into the bacteria in our digestive tract!   [presumably from eating plant material that included the bt gene–or maybe, from eating yogurt, if the bacteria that culture yogurt have incorporated the bt gene from the milk from cows that have eaten plant material that contained it . . . ])
  • Thus, the death of these birds may be a result of having introduced genetically modified organisms into the environment.

My objective is to throw out some ideas.  I can only hope that someone, somewhere, is looking into these possibilities.  I think that looking at the source of the seed these birds were eating would tell a lot.

Did these birds eat seeds from genetically modified plants?  Were the seeds they ate, from test fields?  Were the seeds contaminated with some kind of agricultural chemicals?  If so, did anyone know that these seeds might have a potentially lethal effect on wildlife, or people?  Did material from these plants enter into the human food supply too?

Follow the seeds.  What ties these locations, and their seeds together?  Is this the ‘smoking gun’?  If this is the cause, will the truth ever see the light of day?

If GMOs are involved, you can be sure that a ‘plausible explanation’ will soon come forth.  The agricultural companies that are in the business of creating genetically modified organisms are very wealthy, very powerful, and very well connected.  If they are to blame, you can bet they are scrambling to ‘put a lid on’ this.

However, if this is what has happened, and if it is God’s time to reveal more information about the corruption of the elite, the truth will out.

We Could Sell Them ‘Super Seeds’. . .

First Beast Rising

Setting The Stage

Another line of  thinking that I encountered, is that  the death of the Arkansas birds–and fish–could be tied in with HAARP technology or military tests.  Although I know nothing about the blog, here is a link for those of you who would like to hear what that writer has to say.

Another possibility I can think of is a species-specific attack using a nanoweapon. In such a case, it could be a warning from another country (such as China) or our own military testing and refining new nanoweaponry.

And, last but not least, my first thought was that this may somehow tie in with the recent earthquakes in Guy, Arkansas and/or the Gulf Oil Spill.

A couple of weeks ago, I had read a post about Sodom and Gomorrah.  (Here is a link to some fascinating information regarding what is most likely the actual location of Sodom and Gomorrah!)

Genesis 14:10 says that there were tar pits in the Valley of Siddim (now the Dead Sea). Out of curiosity, I did some research as to what kind of geology one would find that includes tar pits, sulfur, and salt.  I learned that these elements are found in areas where petroleum is also found. If I understood correctly, the geology of such places allows for mud, oil, or sulfur-spewing volcanoes to come up overnight.

Interestingly, there are three places in the US that seemed similar to the Valley of Siddim:

  1. A small petroleum seep at the Great Salt Lake in Utah
  2. The region of (underground) salt dome deposits that are located in Texas, Louisiana, and Arkansas
  3. The San Joaquin Valley of California, where there are several well known tar pits

It may be that nothing like the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah will ever happen in these places . . . but strange things ARE happening in Arkansas and Louisiana.

We have already had two major disasters in that region: Hurricane Katrina and the Gulf Oil Spill.  Are we seeing the prelude to another disaster?  Is it possible that the birds and fish were poisoned or injured by venting of toxic gases along a fault line?  Is an earthquake or some sort of eruption imminent?

Or might it tie in with the oil spill?  Is it possible that some of the dispersant used after the oil spill has made its way further inland, through waterways or fault lines?  Or that, last summer, rain contaminated by toxic vapors may have come down on fields in the area, tainting the soil and accumulating in the plants’ seeds, making them toxic?

Whatever IS behind the birds that fell from the sky, a lot of people are watching and asking:  “What’s next?”

Update 1/26/11:

I have heard that some people heard ‘sonic booms’ or a sound like thunder around the same time as the birds died, that night in Beebe, Arkansas.  (Beebe is not far from Guy, Arkansas where numerous small earthquakes have been felt recently).

A number of people in Indiana reported hearing the same thing,  near Indianapolis the day before the birds in Beebe died. The shaking only lasted about 10 seconds.  They were told it was a 3.8 magnitude earthquake (3 miles deep), but some still question why it sounded and felt like an explosion, rather than like a typical earthquake.

Apparently, one guy in Indiana (and his mother in law) heard 3 loud booms at the same time that his friend, Anton, in NC heard the same thing.  I believe this took place on 1/1/11.  He is still trying to find out whether anyone else between Indiana and North Carolina heard the same thing at that time.

So, here is another thought–again, having to do with fault lines and methane releases:  perhaps methane is making its way through the New Madrid fault line and causing underground explosions . . .

Here is a brief description of what a natural gas explosion felt like (see comment #9).

Related to the New Madrid faultline–here is a link to a broadcast yesterday, that talks about the preparations that FEMA is making, for a major disaster related to a quake on the New Madrid fault line within the next three years (you can skip to a little past the half way point).

Whether or not there are underground explosions happening–it may be news to many people that there IS a type of earthquake that is expressed as a loud boom or thundering.   Something is definitely happening along the New Madrid fault line already.

Well, well, well . . . isn’t this interesting?

Far and away, my most popular post has been Did We Do This? (Haiti Earthquake, part 2) Sure, it was interesting to me too, at the time.  But it has been a little puzzling to me, in light of all the other events that are more in the forefront these days, that this particular blog should receive so much attention.

So, with that question in the back of my mind, when I came across The Fateful Geological Prize Called Haiti (by F. William Engdahl, 30 January 2010), I had to read it.  All of the following excerpts are taken from it–all emphases are mine.  (Please read the original article in its entirety, it contains links to all sources cited.)

“Behind the smoke, rubble and unending drama of human tragedy in the hapless Caribbean country, a drama is in full play for control of what geophysicists believe may be one of the world’s richest zones for hydrocarbons-oil and gas-outside the Middle East, possibly orders of magnitude greater than that of nearby Venezuela.

Haiti, and the larger island of Hispaniola of which it is a part, has the geological fate that it straddles one of the world’s most active geological zones . . .

This vast mass of underwater plates are in constant motion, rubbing against each other . . .

The regions of convergence of such plates are also areas where vast volumes of oil and gas can be pushed upwards from the Earth’s mantle.”

(Could it be that we did indeed use HAARP to give the unstable geology there a little ‘push’?  And, I wonder if an earthquake might help bring the oil and gas a bit closer to the surface, where it would cost less to tap it?  )

“Aside from being prone to violent earthquakes, Haiti also happens to lie in a zone that, due to the unusual geographical intersection of its three tectonic plates, might well be straddling one of the world’s largest unexplored zones of oil and gas, as well as of valuable rare strategic minerals. The vast oil reserves of the Persian Gulf and of the region from the Red Sea into the Gulf of Aden are at a similar convergence zone of large tectonic plates, as are such oil-rich zones as Indonesia and the waters off the coast of California.”

“Notably, in 2005, a year after the Bush-Cheney Administration de facto deposed the democratically elected President of Haiti, Jean-Baptiste Aristide, a team of geologists from the Institute for Geophysics at the University of Texas began an ambitious and thorough two-phase mapping of all geological data of the Caribbean Basins. The project is due to be completed in 2011. Directed by Dr. Paul Mann, it is called “Caribbean Basins, Tectonics and Hydrocarbons.” It is all about determining as precisely as possible the relation between tectonic plates in the Caribbean and the potential for hydrocarbons―oil and gas.

(Now, who was it that had ties to Texas . . . ?)

Notably, the sponsors of the multi-million dollar research project under Mann are the world’s largest oil companies, including Chevron, ExxonMobil, the Anglo-Dutch Shell and BHP Billiton. . .

it is surprising that the region had not been mapped earlier. Now it emerges that major oil companies were at least generally aware of the huge oil potential of the region long ago, but apparently decided to keep it quiet.”

In October 2008 a consortium of oil companies led by Spain’s Repsol, together with Cuba’s state oil company, Cubapetroleo, announced discovery of one of the world’s largest oilfields in the deep water off Cuba. It is what oil geologists call a ‘Super-giant’ field. Estimates are that the Cuban field contains as much as 20 billion barrels of oil, making it the twelfth Super-giant oilfield discovered since 1996. The discovery also likely makes Cuba a new high-priority target for Pentagon destabilization and other nasty operations.

No doubt to the dismay of Washington, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev flew to Havana one month after the Cuban giant oil find to sign an agreement with acting-President Raul Castro for Russian oil companies to explore and develop Cuban oil.

Medvedev’s Russia-Cuba oil agreements came only a week after the visit of Chinese President Hu Jintao to meet the recuperating Fidel Castro and his brother Raul. The Chinese President signed an agreement to modernize Cuban ports and discussed Chinese purchase of Cuban raw materials. No doubt the mammoth new Cuban oil discovery was high on the Chinese agenda with Cuba.”

(Could competition be a motive to move quickly on this?)

“The remarkable geography of Haiti and Cuba and the discovery of world-class oil reserves in the waters off Cuba lend credence to anecdotal accounts of major oil discoveries in several parts of Haitian territory. It also could explain why two Bush Presidents and now special UN Haiti Envoy Bill Clinton have made Haiti such a priority. As well, it could explain why Washington and its NGO’s moved so quickly to remove– twice– the democratically elected President Aristide, whose economic program for Haiti included, among other items, proposals for developing Haitian natural resources for the benefit of the Haitian people.”

“In an interview with a Santo Domingo online paper, Leopoldo Espaillat Nanita, former head of the Dominican Petroleum Refinery (REFIDOMSA) stated, “there is a multinational conspiracy to illegally take the mineral resources of the Haitian people.” Haiti’s minerals include gold, the valuable strategic metal iridium and oil, apparently lots of it.”

” . . . when Aristide was President — up until his US-backed ouster during the Bush era in 2004 — he had developed and published in book form his national development plans. These plans included, for the first time, a detailed list of known sites where the resources of Haiti were located. The publication of the plan sparked a national debate over Haitian radio and in the media about the future of the country. Aristide’s plan was to implement a public-private partnership to ensure that the development of Haiti’s oil, gold and other valuable resources would benefit the national economy and the broader population, and not merely the five Haitian oligarchic families and their US backers, the so-called Chimeres or gangsters.

Since the ouster of Aristide in 2004, Haiti has been an occupied country, with a dubiously-elected President, Rene Preval, a controversial follower of IMF privatization mandates and reportedly tied to the Chimeres or Haitian oligarchs who backed the removal of Aristide. Notably, the US State Department refuses to permit the return of Aristide from South African exile.

Now, in the wake of the devastating earthquake of January 12, the United States military has taken control of Haiti’s four airports and presently has some 20,000 troops in the country. Journalists and international aid organizations have accused the US military of being more concerned with imposing military control, which it prefers  to call “security,” than with bringing urgently needed water, food and medicine from the airport sites to the population.

A US military occupation of Haiti under the guise of earthquake disaster ‘relief’ would give Washington and private business interests tied to it a geopolitical prize of the first order.”

Why Afghanistan?

Today I received an e-newsletter from Chuck Baldwin.  It fits in with what I wanted to blog about, so to start out, I will post his column, in its entirety (as he requests).  My comments will follow.

What’s Really Going On In Haiti?
By Chuck Baldwin
January 26, 2010

This column is archived at
http://www.chuckbaldwinlive.com/c2010/cbarchive_20100126.html

People of goodwill everywhere are rightly sympathetic to the plight of
hundreds of thousands of innocent Haitians in the aftermath of the terrible earthquake that rocked the island country. Private donations and volunteer efforts are pouring into Haiti from all over the globe–especially from the United States. This is a good thing, right? So, why am I troubled?

Simply put, I cannot remember such an all-out “relief effort” by our
nation’s military and government forces following a natural disaster
anywhere–ever! Not even New Orleans, Louisiana, and surrounding Gulf Coast communities here in the homeland received the kind of attention from Washington, D.C., that Haiti is receiving.

According to Agence France-Press (AFP), “The US military is ramping up its mission in quake-hit Haiti, with 20,000 US troops expected to operate on ground and offshore by Sunday [January 24], the US commander overseeing the region said.”

No doubt, this would include ships and personnel from the USS Carl Vinson carrier group. Cost to US taxpayers to send an entire carrier group–along with more than 20,000 (so far) military personnel–to Haiti already numbers in the multiplied millions of dollars. It is also almost certain that there will be no quick exit from the island nation. There never is. In other words, our military presence (dare I say occupation?) in Haiti will doubtless last for years. At least, that’s the way Latin American and European countries see it. And they are probably right.

Suffice it to say that the United States military is now completely in
charge in Haiti. At this point, it would be very enlightening for everyone to read Walter Williams’ column dated January 20, 2010, entitled “Haiti’s Avoidable Death Toll.” See Walter’s column at:

http://tinyurl.com/haiti-avoidable-death

In short, Williams notes that the high death toll in Haiti is directly
related to the inferior political/economic philosophies of the Haitian
government. There is no economic liberty, which has relegated it to being one of the world’s poorest nations, with no opportunity to build the kind of homes and businesses that can withstand natural disasters.

Williams is right when he says, “President Barack Obama called the quake ‘especially cruel and incomprehensible.’ He would be closer to the truth if he had said that the Haitian political and economic climate that make Haitians helpless in the face of natural disasters are ‘especially cruel and incomprehensible.'”

Williams also observes, “Corruption is rampant” in Haiti. Crime is,
likewise, ubiquitous in Haiti, with little real law enforcement. Private
property rights are nonexistent. Like many (if not most) third world
countries, people live in tyranny and bondage to insensitive, power-mad
strongmen who use up the country’s resources for their own selfish purposes. Tyranny always impoverishes people; freedom enriches them.

Williams rightly concludes, “Haiti’s disaster demands immediate Western
assistance but it’s only the Haitian people who can relieve themselves of
the deeper tragedy of self-inflicted poverty.” Amen.

All of that said, however, there are still several things bugging me about
the Haiti story.

For one thing, why was an earthquake of this magnitude not felt beyond
Port-au-Prince? (The only reports saying tremors were felt out of Haiti
belong to US-controlled sources.)  All of the testimonies that I have read from people living in the adjoining country of the Dominican Republic (which shares the same island with Haiti) that were quoted by French, British, or Spanish outlets universally say they felt nothing. If the foreign press is reporting the story accurately, the devastation was almost exclusively contained in and around Port-au-Prince. That is very strange to me. Even most of the roads reportedly remained open after the quake.

Another oddity is the fact that this earthquake did not produce a tsunami. It is being called “miraculous” that an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale did not produce a colossal tsunami, which would have affected everyone in the region.

Furthermore, does the French government know something that we don’t–but should? According to a report of the Global Analysis International Intelligence (GAII), “Not coincidentally, Agence France-Press (AFP), which of course is closely affiliated with French intelligence, filed a report on 14th January which contained the following concluding sentence:

“‘On Wednesday, Obama ordered a “swift, coordinated and aggressive effort to save lives” in Haiti following the murderous quake, as a massive US aid mission swung into action, using troops, naval forces, aircraft and rescue teams.’

“FACT: An ‘act of God,’ or natural calamity, is NOT a ‘murderous quake.’ “The use of the word MURDEROUS here implies that someone is doing the
MURDERING.”

GAII further speculates that the earthquake may have been the work of US Black Ops, which “flattened the French embassy and many of its officials, imploded the United Nations’ own establishments in the Haitian capital, and no doubt obliterated evidence of US Government and rogue official drug-running complicity . . . channeled through the Haitian capital for many years.” See the intelligence report at:

http://tinyurl.com/gaii-haiti

Intelligence reports are also circulating about the possible disruption of
liens and seizures of trillions of dollars by the international community
relative to past crimes committed by former Presidents George Bush I and II, and Bill Clinton, which were being channeled through Haiti’s Central Bank.

If any of this is even remotely true, it is certainly more than convenient
that the Haitian capital was destroyed.

This particular part of the story is a real sore spot with me. And I know if I broach this topic, many readers (especially my Christian brethren who live under the delusion that the Bush family can do no wrong) will refuse to believe anything I report and will even take their anger and umbrage out on me. So be it.

I am personally convinced that certain members of the Bush and Clinton
families have been involved in the international smuggling of illicit drugs
for decades. I have spoken in confidence with those who were in positions to know, and they have emphatically told me that both then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and then-President George H.W. Bush were complicit in CIA-assisted drug running out of Mena, Arkansas. (You don’t think I would say this if I did not have absolute confidence in the integrity and credibility of these sources, do you? Plus, why would they tell me this at potential great harm to themselves, if it were not true? And, no, I cannot divulge their names, for obvious reasons.) And there is absolutely no reason to believe that similar operations are not ongoing. In my opinion, it would be utterly naïve to think otherwise.

After all, it has been often reported that the CIA used Army Special Forces troops to facilitate the smuggling of drugs out of Indochina during the Vietnam War, has it not? Yes, it has. That rogue elements within the US government would use war–or even earthquakes–as cover and facilitation for illegal drug smuggling or money laundering would not surprise me one bit.

I realize it is extremely difficult for many Americans to contemplate that
members of their own federal government could be evil enough to be involved in anything such as is implied above. According to the thinking of many Americans, evil people only live in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, or North Korea. And, of course, that is exactly what government propagandists want us to believe.

The truth is, no country or people has a monopoly on sin. As the prophet
Jeremiah was inspired to say, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) The Apostle Paul agreed. He told the Philippians, “We . . . have no confidence in the flesh.” (Philippians 3:3)

Thomas Jefferson said virtually the same thing when he said, “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

This is why Jefferson and the rest of America’s founders insisted that we
should be diligent to hold our civil magistrates accountable to the limits
and protections of the US Constitution. They well understood the sentiments so wisely expressed by Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Christians, of all people, should understand this.

So, why are so many of us so quick to believe everything our government and their toadies in the national media are telling us? Are we so naïve as to believe that unregenerate politicians in Washington, D.C., are incapable of the same evil acts of barbarity and savagery that might be found in other parts of the world? Are sinners less sinful because they happened to receive their fallen nature from American bloodlines?

Am I saying that Black Ops personnel manufactured the earthquake in
Haiti–and killed tens of thousands of people in the process–for the
purpose of hiding or facilitating illegal activity? No, I am not. How in the
world would I know it, even if it were true?

What I am saying is that, once again, for me, there are many things that do not add up regarding what is going on in Haiti. The way the earthquake behaved; the lack of related seismic and tsunamic activity usually associated with earthquakes of this magnitude; the unprecedented involvement of US military forces being used for “relief efforts” even as commanders are desperate to fill combat theaters in Iraq and Afghanistan; the occupation of another independent nation, which occurred at lightning speed; the vast sums of US taxpayer dollars being expended; the devastation done to key Haitian governmental and banking institutions–which were known to be conduits for
international financial disbursements–with virtually no devastation
experienced anywhere else; and intelligence reports of surreptitious
activity circulating all over Europe and Latin America all add up to one big question, What’s really going on in Haiti?

My opinions on Chuck Baldwin’s column:

  • I don’t think that the use of the word ‘murderous’ to describe the earthquake, in and of itself, implies anything.  It could simply be a way of attributing blame for the deaths to God, ‘Mother Nature’, or the earthquake itself.
  • I was not aware  that the damage was confined to such a small area, and that the quake was not felt throughout the island.  To me, that seems very suspicious indeed.
  • Just yesterday I had read elsewhere, that the day before the quake, the Department of Defense had held simulations pertaining to the impacts of a hurricane in Haiti, in order to rehearse relief operations.

http://libertynewsradio.com/wire/news/2010/01/00413_A_Haiti_Disaster_Relief_Scenario_Was_Envisaged_by_the_US_Military_One_Day_Before_the_Earthquake_025124.php

  • Also, yesterday, I heard, for the first time, the allegation that the CIA was involved in drug dealing.

http://libertynewsradio.com/wire/news/2010/01/00414_Ron_Paul_After_CIA_coup_agency_runs_military_025532.php

  • ‘Rogue Elements’?  I’ll go a step further and say that our government authorizes and funds these ‘rogue elements’, but makes every effort to cover their connection to them.  How many years have we been  hearing about US involvement in assassinations, regime change, etc.?  Come on–if these were just ‘rogue elements’, don’t you think there would be an investigation, arrests, and a front page story?
  • I knew that the Bushes were involved in many despicable things, including eugenics, Holocaust concentration camps, Saudi Arabia, etc.  Information on some of that can be found in the book “Confessions Of An Economic Hitman”.  (This book was a real ‘eye-opener’ for me!)  Here is a link to a video interview with the author:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=808526880666247652#

As far as Clinton, I haven’t learned much about him but, years ago, I formed the opinion that it was his goal to disarm the US and bring us under the authority of the United Nations–and then run for president of the UN! (His efforts were tame compared to what Obama has done!)

  • Steven Collins had recently posted a blog about Obama’s Executive Order regarding Interpol (International Police, I believe).  He links to an article that asserts that Interpol is doing an in-depth audit of the Federal Reserve Bank, and investigating it and other criminal organizations.

http://stevenmcollins.com/WordPress/?p=1479

Remember also, that nearly a year ago, there were reports of a Spanish judge wanting Bush, et al. investigated in regards to breaking international law by torturing prisoners at Guantánamo Bay.  And, it was discovered, late last summer, that Goldman Sachs had been using market manipulating software.  Although virtually no American media covered the story, there was an international outcry over the discovery.  The Senate was planning to investigate, but the story died.  I don’t know if it was ever resolved.  If it wasn’t  (and it doesn’t look like it was) there could be call for an investigation by an organization independent of the (apparently) widespread corruption throughout the US government and regulatory agencies.  In other words, these things would tend to corroborate the idea that there may be an international investigation underway, into the Bush family and other influential people.  One other note–although Obama is giving the impression of not being involved in such an investigation, I suspect he would be at the front of the pack of the accusers.

  • I heard also, that Hugo Chavez (I think it was him), is alleging that we are using the Haiti earthquake as an excuse for military occupation of Haiti and eventually the invasion of Venezuela.  (It has just been reported that Venezuelan oil deposits may be more than double the amount of oil in Saudi Arabia.)

http://www.topnews.in/venezuela-holds-vast-crude-reservoirs-usgc-2252378

While he is certainly villified in the conservative media, it doesn’t necessarily follow that nothing Chavez says is true.  I am not one of his supporters, and know nothing about him, but who knows?  One day we may find out that Chavez told more truth than either our politicians or our news media!

  • Also, with the amount of enmity that Venezuela and Cuba have towards the US, and in view of their increase in militarization, it would make sense, strategically, for the US to move into the region.  I am not saying I agree!  I am just saying decision makers could feel justified in occupying Haiti, for that reason.  Frankly, I don’t know where the money is coming from to continue expanding our ‘presence’–especially when things are falling apart at home!

America is not just a nation–it is an empire.  We are feared and hated throughout the world–for that reason.  I go into the subject a little more in my post:  American Empire

Here is a map that speaks volumes:

US military bases worldwide in 2007

US military bases worldwide in 2007

Another important thing I want to point out, is that the American empire extends to the south and to the east.  That correlates with a prophecy in Daniel, relating to a 4th kingdom/world empire that will rule in the latter days.  This is the same empire spoken of as The Beast (the ‘first beast’) in the book of Revelation.

My gut feeling is that the US may either be the last world empire, or may be transforming into it.  I still have a lot more study to do before I could put forth a reasonable argument for it though.  I know it would be denied by almost all of our current ‘Bible experts’–the same ones that will tell you that The Church is going to be ‘raptured’ before the Tribulation begins.  I know, without a doubt, that isn’t true.

I still need to do a post on that subject, but I’ll spare you the suspense–based on my current understanding, I believe that the only people that might possibly be removed from the earth before death, prior to Christ’s return, are ‘The 144,000’ and maybe ‘The Two Witnesses’.  The rest of us will rise to meet Him in the air when He returns.

Back to the column . . . if I understand correctly, people suspect that the US may have bombed certain buildings in Haiti, thus producing an earthquake.  What is it investigators look for–motive, means & opportunity? (I think those are the three.)

  • Motive: In his column, Chuck lays out a very plausible motive for doing such a thing–if it is true.  (I’m just an ‘average joe’ who has no inside information, so I can’t say if it is or not.)
  • Means: If it was bombs, we certainly have the means to do that.  There is also another possible means by which we could have caused an earthquake.  That will be the subject of the continuation of this post.  (Link below)
  • Opportunity: I don’t think we can rule that out.  We already know that over 100 Americans died in the quake.  (I am not implying that any of them were the people responsible–if anyone was responsible).

So, to wrap up this post . . . it certainly looks like certain powerful people, with ties to our government, may have a motive for creating an earthquake in Haiti (and yes, it is possible to do that), in order to cover past acts of corruption.  If this is true–may God bring the whole thing out into the open, and may these people get the earthly judgment they deserve!

Be sure to check out part 2 of this post, detailing a likely weapon of massive mass destruction.  Many believe these weapons (several in the world) are capable of producing earthquakes, as well as some of the other devastating events prophesied for the latter days–ones you may have assumed would be natural events!

Did We Do This?  (Haiti Earthquake, part 2)

Why Haiti?

American Empire

I am not a student of war. I don’t know the proper terminology, but I know what I see taking shape. I will describe it as best I can.

Russia and China are allied, and lately have been conducting joint military exercises. Russia has also conducted joint naval exercises with Venezuela and is presently working with Cuba to upgrade its military equipment.The Chinese subs that have recently been patrolling off our coasts could obviously be a hindrance to shipping traffic in the event of a war against the United States. And between Russia’s outposts of Cuba & Venezuela, the Gulf of Mexico could be blocked. It is probably safe to assume that the Chinese subs are capable of initiating an EMP (ElectroMagnetic Pulse) attack.

An EMP attack would destroy, in an instant, any unshielded electronic equipment within range. I would guess that means everything from a calculator to a jumbo jet–cell phones, computers, cars, digital thermostats, bank atms, gas pumps, cell phone towers, radio & tv broadcast equipment, etc. We would be without, transportation and communication. If it occurred in winter (which it almost certainly would), we would be without heat.

No means to get food, no heat, no news, no way to call for help, no way to contact family, stuck in place with no transportation and no idea of what’s going on. (How long will it take to realize that it isn’t an ‘ordinary’ blackout? Well–does your cell phone work? Does your calculator work? Does your car start?)

That is how the war would most likely begin–and because of the damage an EMP attack does, it could be years before all these electronic components could be replaced-if they were even available.

Chinese and Russian cyber attacks have mapped out our critical infrastructure and have left software in place that will allow them to seize control of our electrical power grid. Our water and sewage systems are also at risk. So, add to the above: no electricity, no water, and sewers backing up.

A cold, dark hell. For how long? Plenty long enough for what would come next.

Consider the present state of our military. Russia, who lost a protracted ‘war of attrition with Afghanistan’, now plays the part of ‘Brer Rabbit’ and concedes to let our military continue to exhaust its men and supplies in a location to which Russia controls evacuation and supply routes. Weary soldiers have served tour upon tour in some of the most desolate, extreme and spiritually oppressive locations on the face of the earth. And our blessed new leader (all hail) feels that this is an opportune time to begin disarming America by decreasing our military spending! If all that isn’t enough, figure in the constant pressure, here at home, to disarm the American people.

The first wave of invasion will be Russian, from the north. Alaska is just a skip and a jump from Russia. (As I understand it, the land is passable when the ground is frozen to a great enough depth, making winter the most attractive time of year for an incursion via Alaska.) The Russian tanks will roll in, cross Canada and flood the center of America. At the same time, Russian tanks in Venezuela will be moving to the North–and others will be moving into the Southeast via Cuba.

I’m sure there’s more. Our oil supplies can obviously be cut off in the Persian Gulf, but I think (until the real attack comes) that’s more likely to be a strategy to gain leverage over issues like permitting Iran and other Russian proxies to continue with their weapons programs.

Oh, did I forget to mention the new supersonic ‘Sizzler’ Russian antiship cruise missiles that can decimate a fleet of US aircraft carriers? Yeah, they’re passing those out to their friends too . . .

We are missing what is in plain sight!!

Start doing your own Google searches about these subjects. The warnings are out there, but we are falling apart in so many ways here at home, that we are nearly oblivious to the noose that is closing around us!

I was asked, by someone who was skeptical, ‘Why would Russia attack us?’. I don’t know. Do we have to have a reason first, to believe it could happen? My immediate response is-why wouldn’t they?

I guess it’s the old ‘glass half full or glass half empty’ conundrum. Some people look at things as being improbable unless there’s a good reason for them to happen, but I see things as probable unless there’s a good reason for them not to.

I can speculate as to why, or put myself in the place of a Russian or Chinese leader and see good reasons for it, but ‘why?’ is not really important to me. For me, the question is always ‘how?’

It’s important to remember-everyone is not like us. We all see the world differently. We all have different aspirations, different values. Just because we wouldn’t do something, doesn’t mean someone else wouldn’t see it as being a perfectly good option.

If you are a person who always has to know why, my reasons will probably seem lame, but here they are:

1. my intuition is telling me so
2. several people in Russia, at great personal risk, are trying to alert us to the coming danger
3. the Bible foretells it

Don’t get stuck at why!
