Coming Soon: The Most Unusual Solar Eclipse In U.S. History

August 21st is the date of “the Great American Eclipse”, and the hype around it is already starting to reach a fever pitch.
It is being called “the Great American Eclipse” because this will be the first total solar eclipse ever that is only visible in the United States.
In other words, since the United States became a nation there has never been a total eclipse that was only visible here and nowhere else.
And this will be the first total solar eclipse to cross from the west coast to the east coast in 99 years. So for those that love astronomy, this is bigger than the Super Bowl.
Close to 200 million people live within a day’s drive of “the totality zone”, and many are projecting that this will be the most-viewed eclipse ever.
In fact, many hotels and campsites along the path of the eclipse are already completely booked. So if you want to see it live, you better make your arrangements quickly.
Of course the “main event” will not last for very long. Depending on the location, the total eclipse will only last for about two or three minutes.
But if you count from the time that the moon will begin to cover the sun until the time when the sun is completely uncovered again, it will take approximately two and a half hours for the entire process to unfold. The following comes from Newsweek…
If you are in the band of totality, you will see (if you look through special ‘solar filters’ that darken the Sun by a factor of about 100,000) the Moon gradually covering the sun for about 75 min, then the beautiful totality, and then the uncovering for another 75 min.
Of course in the heavens things will be taking place at very high speed. For example, the moon’s shadow will actually be crossing the U.S. at a speed of close to 1,700 miles per hour.
And even if you are not in the “totality zone”, you will still notice what is happening on August 21st. That is because this eclipse will actually cast a “shadow” over the entire nation.
Could it be possible that has some sort of significance?
I don’t know, but without a doubt there will be a whole lot of speculation going on as we get closer to the date.
Many have pointed out that this solar total eclipse in 2017 will be followed by another total solar eclipse nearly seven years later on April 8th, 2024.
And when you plot the projected courses of these two solar eclipses on a map, they form a giant “X” over the center of the United States…

Could this be some sort of extremely bizarre coincidence?
And if it isn’t a coincidence, what could it mean?
I am afraid that I don’t have the answers to those questions right now, but I do find it to be extremely interesting that the heart of this “X” just happens to fall in the middle of the New Madrid fault zone.
Back in 1811 and 1812, the New Madrid Fault zone was hit by a series of absolutely massive earthquakes. At one point the shaking was so bad that it even caused church bells in Boston to start ringing.
If similar earthquakes happened in our day and time, the damage would be absolutely unimaginable. The following comes from Smithsonian.com…
The Midwest was sparsely populated, and deaths were few. But 8-year-old Godfrey Lesieur saw the ground “rolling in waves.” Michael Braunm observed the river suddenly rise up “like a great loaf of bread to the height of many feet.” Sections of riverbed below the Mississippi rose so high that part of the river ran backward. Thousands of fissures ripped open fields, and geysers burst from the earth, spewing sand, water, mud and coal high into the air.
Could you imagine “thousands of fissures” suddenly opening up all over the middle of the country?
One insurance company tried to estimate what the economic toll would be if similar quakes happened today, and they came up with a figure of “about 300 billion dollars”…
A series of big shakes — of the sort last seen in 1811 and 1812 — would cause about $300 billion in damage, Swiss Re says. The cost would be double the damage from Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans in 2005.
 
Houses — especially brick ones — would collapse. Buildings would sink sideways into liquefying earth. Bridges might tumble into the rivers. The route of the Mississippi River could change — as it did in the last big quake.
 
People would die, perhaps by the thousands. Being mainly a property reinsurer, Swiss Re didn’t estimate the human toll.
And we should also consider the fact that there are 15 nuclear reactors along the New Madrid fault zone. And so during a major catastrophe we could be looking at Fukushima times 15.
Let us hope that the next major New Madrid earthquake is put off for as long as possible. Nobody should ever want to see that kind of devastation.
But scientists tell us that the Earth’s crust is “mechanically weaker” under the New Madrid fault zone than it is in other areas of the country, and they assure us that given enough time there will be more massive quakes in the region someday.
It is entirely possible that it could just be a complete coincidence that these two eclipses form a giant “X” directly over the heart of the New Madrid fault zone, but I think that it would be a mistake to dismiss this phenomenon altogether without reflecting on what it might mean.
Because as Pastor Mark Biltz has pointed out, it appears that God specifically used solar eclipses back in Biblical times…
“An archaeological find of cuneiform tablets was found in the 19th century describing events in Nineveh. A famous eclipse mentioned in the tablets was known as the Bur-Sagale eclipse, which is verified by NASA as occurring on June 15, 763 BC. 
 
The path of totality was right over Nineveh. God had declared the sun and the moon were for signs, and now the Ninevites saw the wrath of God coming even before Jonah arrived a couple months later. When Jonah arrived, they were ripe for repentance.”
Our world is a very strange place, and it is getting stranger with each passing day.
And one thing is absolutely certain – the entire nation will be looking up into the sky on August 21st, and what they will see will be truly historic.

California and Their Latest Gas Tax

We recently went to California (southern) and burnt up almost three tanks of gas while there.  The typical ‘first rate’ stations were charging $3.30/gal. for fuel.  If you shopped and got the bargain price (e.g., Costco) you paid $2.65+ per gallon.  However they are about to impose yet another 12-20 cents per gallon increase in their gas taxes (currently $0.70/gal.)!!

So why such high taxes on fuel?  Well, to fix roads of course!  Yeah, but do they already have good roads and need money for building new ones?  No.  The answer is, in So. Cal. the roads are so bad that the wheels of cars are being torn off in the pot holes.  When people sue the county or state government it’s almost a rubber stamp to pay off — they know they can’t win.  So why such bad roads when taxes are so high?  Because the money taken from residents (and visitors) in the way of road taxes is going to the general fund!!

You might ask what exactly the extra money in the general fund is being used for..?  The answer is give-away programs, which are a major part of their budget.  Almost half of residents in California are NOT working.  And a lot of those who are ‘working’ are drawing off of the ‘dole’ anyway.

So you might also ask why don’t the residents insist that all monies going to roads be used for roads?  Hmmm..?  Great idea.  However that was thought of and suggested in 2008 via a proposition on the ballot of which the residents voted down — by a lot.  If you find that hard to believe, consider a point made earlier — the number of people sucking off the hide tit of taxes payers.

The point here is that California has sunk to a point that not only their government is messed up, but so are the people living there.  The idea of them pulling themselves out of their mess is a joke at best at this point. The state is marching further ‘left’ as we speak.

Worse, in my opinion, places like California and Illinois are warning flags of the entire country’s future.  I’d say we could elect a bunch of new guys to turn this around, but look at Trump who is trying to do just that.  If you can ignore his words and watch his actions, he’s getting a lot done.  But how many people do you know that would want to take that kind of abuse for four years!!?

It will take a crisis to turn this country around.  I just hope most of us live through it…?

 

 


 

The End Times — A Well Informed View

A very large number of people in this country (world) believe that we are in the ‘end times’.  But what evidence do they have?  Moral decay?  Natural disasters?  ‘Wars and rumors of wars’?

The following video is very much worth watching and gives another perspective on this subject.  It is a recorded documentation of a lecture at the 2016 ‘Understanding The Times’ convention which is hosted by OliveTree Ministries.  Jan Markell is its founder.

What is key, to me, is that the speaker weaves history and biblical references into a compilation of evidence to make his point.  Although the atheist may find a lot of coincidence in his lecture, after awhile that becomes an obvious stretch.

Is his idea of the end much different than others?  No.  But he gets there in a very different way.  Believe me, it is a guarantee that you will learn something from this talk.  In fact, you might consider sharing with your ‘believing’ friends and/or use it for a bible study session.

The lecture is just under an hour, but moves very fast.  I doubt you’ll fall asleep.  🙂

 

 

 


 

Pew Research — Unbiased View?

This is a must share.  I’ve had my doubt about Pew, but as I see more and more ‘skewed’ evidence, I trust them less every day.  It used to be that they were the first place I go for an ‘independent view’.  Now?  Forget it!  They’re last.

Check out the titles and synopsis of these articles.  Consider about 25% of the populace reads the details in articles written in newspapers and online.  At the very least, they’re skewing things in their emails.  Worst case, they follow CNN’s (Communist Network News) approach to sharing ‘data’.

Let’s take as an example the legal Mexican population’s reluctance to become a U.S. citizen.  Why would they do so?  Hmmm?  Let’s see..?  It costs thousands of dollars; it typically takes 10 years to complete; you have to learn the language and become familiar with the country’s history and constitution; and, you’re expected to love the country and not cheat on your taxes.

If this is the profile of the legal Mexican Americans, imagine..?

U.S. image suffers as publics around world question Trump’s leadership

Donald Trump’s presidency has had a major impact on how the world sees the United States. Across 37 countries surveyed, a median of just 22% has confidence in Trump to do the right thing regarding world affairs, down from 64% for Barack Obama in the closing years of his presidency. This decline is especially evident among allies in Europe and Asia, as well as in neighboring Canada and Mexico. And where confidence in the U.S. president fell most, America’s overall image has also tended to suffer more.

Also: Explore the arcs of U.S. favorability ratings around the world with an interactive chart builder, and read about key trends in global views of the U.S. and its president.

Support for same-sex marriage grows, even among groups that had been skeptical

By a margin of nearly two-to-one, more Americans now say they favor allowing gays and lesbians to marry than say they are opposed. Striking increases in support have occurred among Baby Boomers, blacks, Republicans and younger white Evangelicals – groups that, until recently, had broadly opposed same-sex marriage.

Mexican lawful immigrants among the least likely to become U.S. citizens

Two-thirds of lawful immigrants eligible to apply for naturalization had applied for and obtained U.S. citizenship by 2015, but this share was only 42% among Mexicans. Inadequate English skills, lack of time or initiative and the cost of the citizenship application were the most frequently cited reasons Mexican green-card holders gave for not yet becoming naturalized.

Public supports aim of making it ‘easy’ for all citizens to vote

Most Americans back making it easy for all citizens to vote, but they overwhelmingly reject the idea of requiring people to vote. Partisans are sharply divided over how easy it should be for citizens to vote, and views also differ by age and by race and ethnicity.

10 facts about smartphones as the iPhone turns 10

In the decade since Apple introduced its iPhone, smartphones and other mobile devices have played a central role in making society increasingly digital. For the iPhone’s 10th anniversary, we take a broader look at the role mobile devices play and how they have changed the ways people interact.

People’s views of their national economies don’t always square with data

Many Europeans, Japanese and Americans feel better today about their nations’ economies than they did before the 2008 financial crisis. In most countries surveyed, perceptions of the economy broadly track actual performance – but that’s not always the case.

Public support for ‘single payer’ health coverage grows, driven by Democrats

Six-in-ten Americans say the federal government is responsible for ensuring health care coverage for all Americans, and 33% favor a “single payer” approach to health insurance. The issue of the government’s responsibility in ensuring health coverage remains deeply divisive politically.

In Russia, nostalgia for Soviet Union and positive feelings about Stalin

Most Russians view the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991 as a bad thing – and this view is not limited to Russia itself. Positive feelings for the USSR generally are greater among older people in Russia and the other former Soviet republics surveyed. Nostalgia for the Soviet past also extends to views of its longest-serving leader, Josef Stalin.

Bipartisan support for some gun proposals, stark partisan divisions on many others

Large majorities in both parties continue to favor preventing people with mental illnesses from buying guns, barring gun purchases by people on federal no-fly or watch lists, and background checks for private gun sales and sales at gun shows. Yet there are sharp partisan differences on several other issues.

When Is Enough, Enough??

If you’re a ‘normal’ person, you’re probably afraid of what’s coming next in America..?  At first, we adults, had to accept the gay lifestyle as ‘OK’.  A good deal of laws have been repealed as a result.  ‘Alternative lifestyles’ are to be not only accepted today, but they should be advertised as a ‘better alternative’ according to their advocates.

Now, our youngest children are being exposed to bizarre behavior in the classroom!!  And, that behavior is being encouraged by far too many parents!!  Do you think this is too strongly stated?  Read on!


Rise Of The Drag Queens – Schools and Libraries Promote Drag Events For Children

News Image

By PNW Staff June 26, 2017

Normal gender identity is again under attack, this time with attempts in both Canada and the United States to twist children’s minds into accepting drag queens and transvestite behavior as normal.
Sadly, these attempts to expose young children to overtly sexual adult drag queens is happening in such locations as public libraries and schools. Even worse, some parents are now pushing their prepubescent children into performing in sexually-charged drag shows for adult men,
When the drag-themed Werq the World tour arrived in Montreal, an 8-year-old “drag queen” who goes by the name Lactatia was ready, with the support of his parents to perform an erotic dance for a cheering crowd of adult men.
When questioned by reporters, the boy told them, “If you want to be a drag queen and your parents don’t let you, you need new parents. If you want to be a drag queen and your friends don’t let you, you need new friends.”
What is more, with the new child abuse law passed in Canada just this year, Lactatia’s parents could lose custody for questioning his decision, let alone preventing him from becoming a drag queen.
With terrible irony, questioning the transgender movement can now be considered a forum of child abuse in Canada. In this case, he started performing when he was only seven, with the active encouragement of his mother who does his makeup for every show.
How such a public demonstration of not only transgender performance but also pedophilia earns praise for the sexual exploitation of an eight-year-old is an indication of how far Canada has slipped towards the abyss.
One LGBTQ publication, The Advocate, enthusiastically reported that Lactatia was “looking like a living porcelain doll” and that he “received a trophy as his parents beamed”.
Canada is not alone when it comes to exposing children to sexually explicit transgender performances, however. School District 4 (including Public School 96, Public School 83 and River East Elementary School) in Manhattan recently held its so-called Learning Expo on May 25th at the Museo del Barrio.
Much of the event was devoted to showcasing the standard talents of elementary-aged children, talents ranging from piano playing and gymnastics to magic tricks and singing.
The two hundred gathered families were entertained by the innocent displays of their children until the President of the Public School 96 Parent Association, Frankie Quinones, closed the event with a highly explicit drag queen performance that had dozens of parents rushing to usher their children out.
Children as young as five years old were subjected to views of the middle-aged Quinones gyrating on stage in drag, showing his g-string underwear and moving his tongue suggestively to mimic perverted sexual behaviors.
Raquel Morales, a parent attending with her fifth-grade son, told reporters that “People were horrified. It looked like a nightclub performance. I’ve been asking for an apology from the district for the last week, and they’ve been ignoring it.”
Quinones’ act, which he delivered in a black dress, was kept as a “special surprise performance” until the end of the show. Responding to the lip-synched song from Iris Chacón, one upset parent said, “I left the show the minute he started sticking his tongue out.
I had my children with me and I wasn’t going to allow them to see that.” School officials have not, according to an Education Department statement, faced disciplinary actions over the act that even their spokesperson now admits was “inappropriate”.
As if child exploitation or exposing children to erotic dancing by adult drag queens weren’t enough, the Brooklyn Public Library in Park Slope now has what it is calling “Drag Queen Story Hour”.
Not an isolated incident but instead a program designed by Michelle Tea of Radar Productions, the classes are running in several other cities as well, to include San Francisco and Los Angeles.
The DQSH features a caste of drag queens who read books on homosexuality and non-conformity with gender norms to young children not yet old enough to read.
Its website explains that it aims to “capture the imagination and play of the gender fluidity of childhood and gives kids glamorous, positive, and unabashedly queer role models.”
In other words, they are trying to subvert traditional notions of gender at an age when children are most vulnerable and are still trying to understand these roles.
On a recent Saturday, a drag queen who goes by “Lil Hot Mess” sat in a dress covered in rainbow stickers and read the book “Worm Loves Worm”, a book on homosexual acceptance that has a title that leaves little doubt as to its message. The reading was followed by a drag-themed dance and sing along.
One horrified parent asked, “Why on earth would you expose impressionable minds to someone who is obviously mentally confused? We should be reinforcing gender identity and not adding to the chaos of this very mixed-up world.”
Yet Park Slope is not the only NYC location to feature the event which is now starting up at the Aguilar Branch Library, the New York Public Library, the Tompkins Square Library, and the Hudson Park Library in the city.
Transgendered child sexual exploitation, pornography masquerading as talent and now explicit indoctrination of elementary-aged children are a direct threat to the proper development of our children.
Promoting normal gender behavior is now being called abuse and public institutions in both the US and Canada actively work to legitimize transgender behavior at a very young age.
The next generation has already clearly been conditioned to accept such behavior.
A poll was recently done to measure young millennials attitudes to the issue.  The question posed to young Americans: should the government “remove children from homes where the parents refuse to provide resources for gender transition?”
The question didn’t include an age restriction for the kids. You may want to sit down for this:
Fully 18 percent of the 1,402 respondents answered yes; another 27 percent said they were unsure. Among female respondents, a majority stated that children should either be removed from the home (21 percent), or they were unsure (33 percent).
A whopping 60 percent of Clinton voters felt the same way; just seven percent of those who voted for Trump said yes, and 15 percent said they were unsure.
Among self-described liberals, 47 percent said they were either in favor of government removal (10 percent) or unsure about it (37 percent).
And just exactly where do to you think this will end.??  Hmmm..?
I can’t help but think this is just one of the many reasons over 60% of America thinks we’re in the ‘end days’.  God help us!  Ah, but He may be the source of our ‘spanking’!?

Words of Wisdom From The Past

In these angry times, it’s useful to go back to President Reagan’s 1989 Farewell Address. We remember well the warnings of George Washington against entangling foreign alliances and the loss of religious morality, and Dwight Eisenhower against the military-industrial complex. But it is Reagan’s warning, 28 years ago, that should resonate most with the crises of today:

There is a great tradition of warnings in Presidential farewells, and I’ve got one that’s been on my mind for some time. But oddly enough it starts with one of the things I’m proudest of in the past 8 years: the resurgence of national pride that I called the new patriotism. This national feeling is good, but it won’t count for much, and it won’t last unless it’s grounded in thoughtfulness and knowledge.

An informed patriotism is what we want. And are we doing a good enough job teaching our children what America is and what she represents in the long history of the world? Those of us who are over 35 or so years of age grew up in a different America. We were taught, very directly, what it means to be an American. And we absorbed, almost in the air, a love of country and an appreciation of its institutions. If you didn’t get these things from your family you got them from the neighborhood, from the father down the street who fought in Korea or the family who lost someone at Anzio. Or you could get a sense of patriotism from school. And if all else failed you could get a sense of patriotism from the popular culture. The movies celebrated democratic values and implicitly reinforced the idea that America was special. TV was like that, too, through the mid-sixties.

But now, we’re about to enter the nineties, and some things have changed. Younger parents aren’t sure that an in-ambivalent appreciation of America is the right thing to teach modern children. And as for those who create the popular culture, well-grounded patriotism is no longer the style. Our spirit is back, but we haven’t re-institutionalized it. We’ve got to do a better job of getting across that America is freedom-freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of enterprise. And freedom is special and rare. It’s fragile; it needs [protection].

So, we’ve got to teach history based not on what’s in fashion but what’s important-why the Pilgrims came here, who Jimmy Doolittle was, and what those 30 seconds over Tokyo meant. You know, 4 years ago on the 40th anniversary of D-day, I read a letter from a young woman writing to her late father, who’d fought on Omaha Beach. Her name was Lisa Zanatta Henn, and she said, “we will always remember, we will never forget what the boys of Normandy did.” Well, let’s help her keep her word. If we forget what we did, we won’t know who we are. I’m warning of an eradication of the American memory that could result, ultimately, in an erosion of the American spirit. Let’s start with some basics: more attention to American history and a greater emphasis on civic ritual.

And let me offer lesson number one about America: All great change in America begins at the dinner table. So, tomorrow night in the kitchen I hope the talking begins. And children, if your parents haven’t been teaching you what it means to be an American, let ‘em know and nail ‘em on it. That would be a very American thing to do.

Words spoken of truth, then and today (especially).  If we could only have a president of such great character, presence, strength, and faith…   but at least we have someone who is trying to do what he said he would.

America’s Enemy Plans

If you read my recent post regarding the communist party’s plans to destroy America (Bloodshed is Coming to America) you may have found it hard to believe.  Ah, but wait, there’s more!!

I recently received a note from a friend who reminded me about the Muslim Brotherhood’s plans to destroy our way of life as we know (knew) it.  (An Explanatory Memorandum On the General Strategic Goal for the Group In North America 5/22/1991.)  The document is rather long, but it has both Arabic and English versions in it.  If you study the English version, you can glean out of it the essence of their plan — it is the invasion of America with the end goal of taking over the country!!

This document may come off sounding like a UFO story, but this is very real, true, and serious.  The document was accidentally found as a result of a vehicle stop and was subsequently turned over to the FBI who made the information known in Congress.  What is interesting about the document, is how their plans line up so well with the communists’ plans.   (The communist goals for America as documented in Congress in 1963.)   In an effort of being informative while brief, I will attempt to draw your attention to those common goals which should be obvious today in the news.

The primary source of the goals listed is the communist agenda.  Commentary depicting the Islamist views is added for clarification.

The Common Goals of the Communist Party and Islamists (A subset)

  • Do away with loyalty oaths.  (Promote disloyalty to America)
  • Capture one or both of the political parties in the U.S.  (Embed into both parties socialists and Islamists to gain power in Washington.)
  • Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions, by claiming their activities violate civil rights.  (Use the supreme court to overrule common sense decisions and attempt to establish Sharia law into U.S. courts.)
  • Get control of the schools.  (Dumb down the American youth and educate Muslims to believe their right to rule the U.S.)
  • Gain control of all student newspapers.  (Promote ‘equality’ on university campuses to gain power for both the communist party and Islamists.)
  • Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations.  (Finance communist organizations within the U.S. to allow for larger more impacting riots and demonstrations.  The Islamists create their own papers to further their movement.)
  • Infiltrate the press. Get control of book review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.  (Establish persons of ‘stature’ in positions of authority within the press.)
  • Gain control of key positions in radio, TV & motion pictures.  (Support and demand persons who are aligned with the ‘new agenda’ to be placed in the media.  e.g., Middle Eastern commentators and TV channels — Al Jezera and Vice (HBO)
  • Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all form of artistic expression.  (Eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings.)
  • Eliminate all laws governing obscenity.  (The communists promote obscenity.  The Islamist use it as a tool to show our depravity and their superiority.)
  • Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity.  (Create large well funded organizations that promote LGBTQ values.)
  • Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural and healthy”.
  • Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with “social” religion.  (Demonstrate that Islam is a religion of peace whereas Christianity is against religious freedom and promotes violence against other religions.)
  • Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the grounds that it violates the principle of “separation of church and state”.  (The communists want NO religion in schools.  The Islamists only want Islamic teaching in schools.  The bottom line is, Christianity must go!)
  • Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history.  (Both enemies need us to be ignorant as to what we believe, where those beliefs came from, and to think they are outdated at best.)
  • Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture – education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.  (Both enemies want control over our government, values, and principles.)
  • Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.  (And now today, the Islamists plans.)
  • Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition.  (Both use fear and aggressive tactics to make their points.)

The key here is that America must be destroyed ‘as it is’.  The enemies of America are effectively playing ‘king of the mountain’.  The point is to first destroy our society, then morph our country into what they want.  The common denominator is ‘evil’.  If you have an ounce of Christian background, this should be obvious…?

Please read the two linked lists above, consider the seriousness of this subject and share it with friends and associates.  This country is at war.  Only most of us are either asleep or too busy to care.  If we don’t take action now, the end result will be a world that our kids won’t want to live in. . .
