God's Word  ~  Trusting God  ~  Topical Scripture List  ~  Names of God  ~  Chronologies

"The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer;

my God, my strength, in whom I will trust! " Psalm 28:2

"My refuge is in God!"

Psalm 62:7

 

Conspiracy.  First, they came for Alex Jones: Who will be next? I don’t know, but I don’t plan to find myself in the position in which Martin Niemöller found himself in Nazi Germany. He’s most famous for this prescient quotation:

   “First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew. Then they came for me – and there was no one left to speak for me.”

   ...but I’m going to keep pounding on it until the public catches on to the threat these trillion-dollar monopolies pose to America’s precious institutions of free speech, the free press and freedom of religion. We need congressional hearings. We need action in Washington. We need President Trump to recognize who the biggest purveyors of fake news really are. It’s not just CNN and the Huffington Post. It’s their distribution arms – Google, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Apple and Amazon – the Digital Cartel.

 

Conspiracy.  Apple, Google, Youtube, Facebook, Twitter Subvert the US Constitution, Free Speech, and American Liberty: The coordinated attack on widely watched Info Wars host Alex Jones by Apple, Facebook, Google/Youtube, and Spotify is all the proof that we need that the total failure to enforce America’s anti-trust laws has produced unaccountably powerful firms that are able to exercise far more censorship, not only in America but also abroad among Washington’s vassal states, than the Nazi Gestapo or Stalin’s NKVD were ever able to achieve.

   Apple is larger than the GNP of almost every country in the world. In other words, Apple has the power of a major government. Apple could be a member of the G-20. Apple could institute its own currency and be part of SDR drawing rights. Apple could participate as a backer of IMF and World Bank loans. Apple could have its own military and secret service. ... Apple proved it, along with the other tech monopolies: Google/Youtube, Spotify, and Facebook.

 

Corruption.  Apple Vows iPhones Do Not Listen In On Users... But Its Apps Are Another Story: In the aftermath of numerous reports that Amazon's Alexa speakers were "accidentally" listening in, and in some cases recording the conversations of their owners, on Tuesday Apple responded to US lawmakers whether its iPhones invade users' privacy and listen in on conversation without their consent: Apple's response: a resounding "no", and added that it does not allow third-party apps to do so either, after lawmakers asked the company if its devices were invading users’ privacy. ...

   And as a reminder, here is the shocked response from one Amazon Echo user who found that her conversations were anything but private.

 

Corruption.  Paul Craig Roberts Rages: "Elites Are Shutting Down The Truth-Tellers": “The agendas of the elite are hidden. They are not something the American people would support. The elite are fearful that their cover stories are so thin that if truth can be shown on their agendas, they will be discredited. ... So, they are closing down truth tellers in order to maintain control over explanations.

   Alex Jones is a threat to the elites’ control over the explanations... They are sending the message that says get onboard with the official explanations or we terminate you.” "It is possible because the antitrust laws of the United States have not been enforced....Monopoly is against the law. It’s against the Sherman Antitrust Act, but they don’t enforce it because they’re so powerful. They just prevent the law being enforced.

 

Crisis.  California Carr Fire: Tragic New Photos Show Grave Destruction: Recent photos show just how destructive The Carr Fire is as it ravages through Northern California leaving a rising death toll behind. Horrifying new photos depict just how severe the Carr Fire's wrath has been to Northern California.

   ...the fire is just only 20 percent contained and has since burned nearly 100,00 acres of land... Already becoming one of the top 10 most destructive wildfires in California history, the Carr Fire's aftermath is devastating for anyone to see.

 

Crisis.  'Come and get me,' boy pleaded before California fire death: A young boy pleaded for rescue before he died along with two others in a California wildfire. ... "I talked to Junior on the phone 'til he died," Melody's husband Ed Bledsoe told CNN, recounting the last words of the boy, his sister, and Bledsoe's wife. "He said 'Come and get me, the fire's comin' in the back door. Come on, Grandpa,' Bledsoe said, his voice choking. But he couldn't get there in time to save them.

 

Corruption!  Hillary Clinton State Dept Employee Charged With Producing Over 1,000 Pornographic Images Of Children, Possible Child Trafficking Ring: Why are so many disgusting people associated with the Clintons? One or two could be a coincidence. This is a trend.

   When people snub their nose at the idea of elite child sex rings in Washington DC, just remember this guy. How did he get clearance? Why was no one aware of what he was doing? Why did he get away with it for so long? The Swamp is an absolutely disgusting place.

 

Religion. Scandinavian jihad against Israel: (This message was not correct!) While Nazism was embraced by the Swedish Social Democratic Party, the Norwegians saved many Jews during WW2. Some of my relatives found ways to protect the Jews during the war. It was an exciting time! My father was a leader in the Norwegian underground in Oslo, our capital.

 

Faith!  ‘Can you take a deer?’ Fawn rescued from wildfire by highway patrol officer: A highway patrol officer who became an internet sensation after he helped rescue a month-old fawn from a Northern California wildfire said Monday he didn’t expect the photos to go viral.

   On Saturday morning, California Highway Patrol Sgt. David Fawson of San Francisco helped Cal Fire officers rescue a fawn from a fast-growing wildfire in Redding, about 230 miles north of San Francisco. “We were driving through an active fire, when Cal Fire said, ‘Can you take a deer out here for us?’” he said. “I held it in my lap as we drove out.” He and his partner took the fawn to a safer area miles away, but the baby deer didn’t run away... “It stayed right by me,” he said. “When it tried to nurse on one of my fingers, I thought, ‘This is truly a young baby.’”

   More than 50 officers from the CHP Golden Gate Division are helping during the wildfire that has destroyed more than 700 homes and claimed six lives in Redding.

 

Lawlessness?  Trump, Limbaugh erupt over Feinstein's 'spy' driver: In Ohio Saturday evening, the president said: “Speaking of China, it just came out that the Democratic leader and the leader of the Russian investigation, Dianne Feinstein, had a Chinese spy as her driver for 20 years! And she’s leading the Russian investigation if that’s what you call it. How about she’s leading the Russia witch hunt!”

 

History. Erased history: how Rockefeller bankrolled Soviet Russia: Here, from chapter six of None Dare Call it Conspiracy, “The Rockefellers and the Reds,” is a devastating passage commenting on the period just after the Russian Revolution of 1917: “The Rockefellers assigned their public relations agent, Ivy Lee, to sell the American public the idea that the Bolsheviks were merely misunderstood idealists who were actually kind benefactors of mankind.”

   “Professor Antony Sutton of Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, notes in his highly authoritative Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development:” “’Quite predictably…[Ivy] Lee concludes that the communist problem is merely psychological. By this time he is talking about “Russians” (not Communists) and concludes “they are all right.”

 

Religion. Scandinavian jihad against Israel: There are a few obvious reasons for why Norway and Sweden have sided with radical Islam’s war against the Jewish state. The first are the mass-immigration of muslims into these nations. The muslims gets around 3.000 USD per month in governmental support each month. Many are granted citizenship, and given a right for their full families to immigrate and live on public pensions. The other, is cultural Scandinavian based antisemitism. ...Nazism was embraced by the Swedish Social Democratic Party before it became the ruling ideology in Germany. (Very sad!)

 

Conspiracy.  Liberal Censorship Gone Wild: You Tube shut down the Alex Jones-Infowars channel a few days ago... Jones’s Facebook and Spotify sites were also censored.

   A while back, You Tube censored Britt Pettibone when she came too close to the truth and the people involved in Pizzagate; likely the same reason why they shut down SGT, but they haven’t even told the publisher specifically why they shut him down! ...You Tube channel access, email accounts, USPS mail, and more…have all been attacked...

 

Corruption.  Does Trump know how much Google hates him?  Back in the first quarter of 2018, beginning in January, I saw our revenues collapsing thanks to the Internet Cartel’s vicious anti-Donald Trump predilection. If you think the New York Times, Washington Post and CNN hate Trump, you need to look at Google News.

   I know Google doesn’t create content. But as the primary distribution system for content online, what it does is aggregate the most hateful, the most over-the-top, the most absurdly provocative anti-Trump fake news it can find. I have tested this theory, and if you doubt me, you can do so yourself. Just go to Google News and survey it any day of the week. ...

   The fact that Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Amazon all rely on the radical leftwing lunatics at the Southern Poverty Law Center as their guide to what represents “hate speech” is all you really need to know.

 

Crisis.  PRAY TO GOD — The Time Is Now — The Imposters Are Preparing The Final Act in Their Coup d’état: This country is at a precipice. America is either going to be overrun by a power hungry Deep State or it will survive one of the greatest attacks to its existence since the Civil War. We must all be vigilant and prepared.

   The acts of the Deep State are as appalling as they are criminal. An unelected and elected power hungry minority is attempting a coup d’état of the Trump administration. ... President Trump won the election but this only enraged the Deep State to remove the duly elected President from his rightful position. ...

   Deep State – its many actors including former President Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Democrat and Republican Senators, Congressmen and judges, the FBI, DOJ, the corrupt Mueller gang... have created a “witch hunt” that is reaching its climax.

Occult.  Wikileaks Reveals Satanic Rituals Used By White House Chiefs

Faith!  Christian students face growing anti-Christian harassment at school: Their Christianity is treated like a virus. The Bible is banned; they are called out in class for expressing their faith; the cross is treated as contraband. Bible clubs are banned or ostracized by school officials. One little elementary school girl was banned from drawing a picture of Jesus, had her Bible confiscated, and was instructed she could never even mention her faith at school. A little boy was repeatedly threatened with punishment for doing book reports on Bible stories.

   Almost daily, we are contacted by the parents of Christian students who are facing blatantly unconstitutional discrimination. We've spent decades taking on these cases - even all the way to the Supreme Court - and winning. But as the threats increase - Christians denied admission to college and even banned from publicly praying - we need you.

   Religious liberty is the cornerstone of America, and our children are its future.

 

Corruption.  Democratic Socialists set up shop on campuses nationwide: The Young Democratic Socialists of America organization claims to have added more than 200 campus chapters over the past year, up from just 15 chapters in 2016. YDSA chapters ostensibly engage in activism on behalf of left-wing causes like free healthcare and abortion, but conservative students note that most of their efforts seem to involve vandalism and disrupting free speech.

Corruption. Tommy Robinson's shocking prison treatment | YouTube.

Corruption.  Vatican Bishop Confesses: 'Senior Catholic Officials Are Paid By George Soros': European politicians and senior Catholic officials have been bought and paid for by George Soros, according to Vatican Bishop Athanasius Schneider, who confessed to an Italian newspaper that the migrant crisis was orchestrated with the goal of “radically altering the Christian and national identity of the peoples of Europe.”

 

Corruption.  Clinton Involved in Biggest Treason in History: Shipp explains, “Hillary Clinton used this to launder money in foreign banks so it wasn’t subject to U.S. laws, congressional subpoenas or FOIA demands for the evidence. This was done to launder this money globally into the Clinton Foundation so the U.S. government could not examine it at all.” ...Robert Mueller was the head of the FBI while the Uranium One deal was being done by Clinton and the Russians.

 

Rage!  Explaining American Leftists: ‘’As I watch a great number of my fellow Americans and virtually all of the mainstream media descend further and further into irrational and immoral hysteria — regularly calling the president of the United States and all of his supporters Nazis, white supremacists and the like; harassing Republicans where they eat, shop and live...declaring their opposition to Trump and the Republican Party the "Resistance."

 

Taking a stand!  Why the ‘Resistance’ in the State Department is a Gift to Trump: President Trump’s diplomacy will continue to make America safe and strong, as long as he relies upon his own experience in negotiation and does not follow State Department guidance. The majority of our 75,382 State Department employees do not support our president. ... But ...their “Resistance” has given President Trump the opportunity to do an end-run around them.

Corruption. Trump Border Battle, DOJ FBI Indictments Coming, Big Bank Bankruptcy: The vast majority of Americans want immigration enforcement, not more illegal immigration, which comes with a high price tag in the form of welfare....

   Top people in the FBI and DOJ are in serious legal trouble in the biggest fraud abuse of power and treason scandal in American history. It also involves top players in the White House, and the State Department under both Hillary Clinton and John Kerry. Many are going to be indicted in the months to come. The first four will probably include fired FBI and Assistant FBI Directors Comey and McCabe, Lisa Page and top counterterrorism agent Peter Strzok.

 

Corruption.  We Cannot Allow Strzokians Back into Power: Peter Strzok's arrogance displayed at the Congressional Oversight Committee hearing on TV was infuriating. ...

   The thing that got my blood boiling was Strzok's snooty attitude. His facial expressions and body language said, “How dare you question me. I don't have to answer any of your questions.

In June alone, 310,200 tourists entered the country, a 2% increase from last year and 31% more than 2016.

 

Rights!  Why Trump Makes Sense Regarding NATO: The North Atlantic Treaty Organization was conceived as a mutual defense pact against possible Soviet aggression in Europe following WWII, and the U.S., under President Harry Truman’s initiative, became one of the original twelve members in 1949. ...

   Josef Stalin was still alive, and his ruthlessness and hatred for capitalism as well as his disregard for human life and paranoia were already well known.

Victory.  Donald Trump Rocks NATO: 'Germany Is Totally Controlled by Russia': U.S. President Donald J. Trump went right to work in Brussels at the NATO summit Wednesday morning, taking truculent Germany to task for coming to the United States for defence, while simultaneously paying billions of dollars to the Russian Federation for energy.

   Speaking at a bilateral breakfast meeting with the Secretary-General of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Jens Stoltenberg, President Trump was blunt, calling out Germany for taking from NATO with one hand while giving to Russia with the other.

 

Corruption.  Progressive Child Abuse in the Schools: Educators and professors who teach students to use logic and critical thinking are doing God's work. Teachers who spur cognition and who encourage students to question, to read, and to investigate all points of view are truly teaching. On the flip-side of the coin, we have teachers who now subscribe to methods of leftist indoctrination and who are currently using this indoctrination as a weapon within the classroom.

 

War?  New Satellite Images Show Russia is Secretly Preparing for War: The summit in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16 between Presidents Donald Trump and Putin offers an unprecedented opportunity to de-escalate tensions between the United States and Russia.  Several reports have detailed a disturbing new trend of Moscow’s rapid modernization efforts to improve its westernmost military facilities in Kaliningrad ahead of the summit.

Crisis!  European 'Christians' no longer align with Christian faith: ...European Christians, once the driving force behind the faith’s expansion worldwide, no longer are. ...  They only rarely walk in the doors of a church. ...Norway’s figures plunged from 79 percent “raised Christian” to only 51 percent now. (So sad! Norway is my original home land!)

Lawlessness.  7/4/18 Pizzagate Update: There are more than 30,000 sealed indictments, many which are reportedly for crimes against children...  One good reason to seal an indictment would be to withhold an individual’s identity, until that person can be arrested, to prevent giving criminals enough time to flee prosecution and/or destroy evidence.

  

Crisis!  Facebook deletes Declaration of Independence text as 'hate': Facebook “flagged and removed a post consisting almost entirely of text from the Declaration of Independence.” As “hate.” The action confirmed the inability of the Facebook processes to tell the difference between “white nationalist ravings” and the “writing of Thomas Jefferson,” the report said.

   As a Christian pastor who had already been in the country for two decades, deeply committed to loving Turkey and its people, he believed this moment would give him the opportunity to continue leading God’s people faithfully at Izmir Resurrection Church.

    Instead... he and his wife were held in a local police station with no charges; his wife would be released two weeks later... He was held for 63 days without even a Bible...

Revolution.  Facebook now under fire for Deep Spying: Joseph Farah, WND founder and CEO, explained... how Facebook and Google, “sharing an ultra-left worldview, dominate both advertising revenues and control of the distribution of content in America and throughout the Western world.

Lawlessness.  Clinton Body Count Ticks Up Ala ANOTHER "Suicide": The death by gunshot of Hillary Clinton’s lover, lawyer, and best friend in 1993 was the highest suspicious death of a government official since JFK.

Lawlessness.  Google's DeepMind - Sharia-Compliant 'AI': ...tech giants such as Facebook and Google have immense power over how we receive and share information online.

Certainly not Alphabet CEO Eric Schmidt who massaged Google back in 2016 to produce favorable results for their candidate, Hillary Clinton.

for I am with you,

Be not dismayed,

for I am your God."

Isaiah 41:10

"Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed for the Lord with you wherever you go." Joshua 1:9

When enemy forces threatened to attack God's people, [King] Jehoshaphat simply turned His eyes and heart to His faithful Lord and expressed his faith:

“O Lord God of our fathers, are You not God in heaven, and do You not rule over all the kingdoms of the nations, and in Your hand is there not power and might, so that no one is able to withstand You? ...we have no power against this great multitude that is coming against us; nor do we know what to do, BUT OUR EYES ARE UPON YOU." 2 Chronicles 20:6, 12
