IMPORTANT UPDATE:

— Shortly after I uploaded today's post, news began breaking that it appears Hamas General Hospital remains standing and is unharmed. Only the parking lot appears to have been damaged. In other words, the whole story could be fake news. I'll get everyone up to speed in tomorrow's post.

I think the media has a cumulative mental capacity of a box of packing peanuts. Do they understand the level of buffoonery and ignorance they have shown time after time, day after day, consecutively, and with such dedication to indignation?

When they take a dump, do they wipe their mouths or their arse? Do they know the difference?

Whatever goes on in Israel is irrelevancy with regard to the existential threats posed by invasive attack at the country's borders and by attack from subversives within the highest centers of the now captured 'government' (bioweapons, food supply, financial system/inflation, DEW weapons, criminal maladmistration, etc.). And the focus it on Israel and Hamas? Really? What about saving ourselves from extinction?

You’ll change your mind when Biden starts relocating Palestinians to the US. I’m sure we’re developing quite a terrorist network here.

The point is to have a border period ... and no further ethnic cleansing by relocation and/or organized mass trafficking across the would be now non-extent United States borders. And the focus, for me, is not on the Zionist god-state, it is restoring order and Constitutional rule to America. It is Americans and American First. It is real jobs, real money, real sanity. It is real criminal prosecutions for things like covert operations attacks like the C19 vaccine attack.

By the way, the Zionist god-state would just love a flood of Palestinians to the US, Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand. It would solve their problem and maybe this is the point of this whole circus? Empty out Gaza. We'll see what gets shoved forward.

Once again folks are having their buttons pushed, their attentions misdirected and sucked in once again.

That was the entire goal of opening our borders. To justify/strategize at-home terrorism--and call another "oops! Biden messed up again!" Biden is in charge of nothing. This open border was well strategized. The "Biden administration" even sued Texas and NM for trying to close the border in their states and received injunction prohibiting those states from putting up barriers. Let that sink in. The worst (at least for Americans) is yet to come.

To Dave's point, again that is the result of the USG's immigration/open border policy.

Hitting Dave’s point, if the border was secure,that would mean immigration law was being enforced, and those neanderthals wouldn’t be coming here. I wonder if the queer college students realize the only men allowed to have sex with little boys are muzzies? And those men kill real queers. I’m not sure what the difference is, but they are.

Our present world system runs on POWER and GREED - and the financiers and power potentates (especially in banking and media) are mostly of the "jewish" persuasion. And soooo.....as the nation of Israel (which I am learning from some commentators whose words I respect is NOT considered to be legitimate by orthodox Jewish people around the globe) goes...so goes the "power potentates" as to their loyalties and verbiage!

This is pretty a straight forward simplistic account (from what I've learned through the years) of the origins of the state of Israel.

Expand full comment

The origins of the Land of Israel, come from the Biblical account when Abraham obeyed God and He promised him the land that He showed him. Genesis 15:18 says "On the same day the LORD made a covenant with Abram saying, To your descendants I have given this land, FROM the river of Egypt TO the great river Eupharates. So truly, where Israel sits today, is only but a portion of his inheritance... When King Jesus sits on His throne in Jerusalem, His Kingdom will have true borders...

In Gen 17:8 God again tells Abram, "Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession: and I will be their God.

To me, THIS IS PRETTY STRAIGHT FORWARD...

The passages are well taken, but I think Elaine Rusky also has a point worthy of good consideration.

Further, those descendants of Abram, then Abraham, became many tribes, in addition to the semitics who became Muslim and those we call Jews. Of these, Jacob (Grandson of Abraham, and son of Isaac and Rebecca) sired (with Rachel and Lea and 2 servants) the 12 tribes of Israel, the people which we think of as the Jews. It was through them the Law, Moses, the prophets, and Christ Himself came. They’re honored in scripture but also are a picture of dishonor. Many descendants of these tribes of Israel scattered to other places as well and lost their identity.

The thing is, the many tribes descended from Abraham not via Jacob/Israel would also be heir to those promises in the Bible which you quote. Yes, the Jews (those of Jacob/Israel) were set apart by God. They were given much else besides. But the greatest gift was Jesus the lamb of God, the Savior, God’s only son, the King of Kings. I cannot conceive of such rejection of God’s greatest and clearest gift, while appropriating all the lesser ones, especially entitlement to a political, secular state and territory, guaranteed from its inception to be at war with its neighbors, being sanctified.

There’s too much to write here, but we know that the consummate Jew, Paul wrote to the Galatians, “There is now neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.“ (Gal. 3:28)

HE is who and what defines God’s people, not a name, heritage, race, status, or history. Not origins or bloodlines or ancestry. In Christ, Jew and Gentile are both one.

As Christians, If we want a homeland for Jews, we should lead them first to the Father by way of the only way to him, via their true Messiah. Then they will be home. If we love them — as we are told to do — first is to seek and serve the kingdom of God. Then all thing will be added by Him. If we love them, as we ought to love all men, we must keep this in mind. But it obviously presents in this day a fine needle to thread. Love, mercy and humble heart will go a long way. Peace.

I think you are conflating the Israel of the Old Testament (God's chosen people, through Abraham) with the modern country, Israel. I think "Israel" today is spiritual (the church) and not an ethnic group of people. I say that because there are no ethnic Jews today. They intermarried constantly throughout history, and they are now indistinguishable from any other mideastern people, from a genetic standpoint. Here's an article about the spiritual nation of Israel:

There's a short article here that gives the basic scriptures leading to this concept of Israel. It has a lot of annoying popups, which you can eventually block by saying you already subscribed. (I don't think there's anything to subscribe to).

The "real borders" won't be set until the Lion of Judah returns to earth with his army of angelic hosts!! We, who name the name of Jesus Christ the Lord WILL BE PERSECUTED as never before.

And then they scream, er, mourn the fact that nobody listens to them anymore. Why would we? They have proven their “worth” and journalism “standards” numerous times for more than a decade.

Many years ago (3 decades or more—which tells you how long I’ve been skeptical), I had a friend who was an intern for a local news station. I told her how biased they were. She’s a liberal, she denied it, but all you had to do was read the headlines to see the truth. There was always a narrative that, with a little bit of research, could be disproven. I could never get it to see if, which is why she’s still very liberal.

More and more people are realizing that there are no real nation-states anymore--that is just theatre. All of these wars, including 9/11 which was fully engineered, are by the globalist elites/bankster cartel/ruling class mafia using "countries" such as the US and Israel to launder US money out and land grab through these engineered wars.

I've seen reports about the Red Crescent being allowed to enter and render aid, and then subsequently being bombed and some aid workers were killed. Who knows if it's real, or who did it. This entire thing is a tragedy of epic proportions. Warning (even several times) about a possible strike to trapped non-combatants does not mean it was ok to cause these deaths. It was called a 'war crime' when Russia temporarily cut off basic utilities in Ukraine, but in the Middle East, it's supposed to justify that the building should have been empty?

Expand full comment

Well, Israel's political opponents are also accusing them of a "war crime" for shutting off the utilities, so I guess at least they're consistent. As far as aid workers bombed, that sucks, but I'm guessing it was not done on purpose but rather, when you go to provide aid in a war zone, unfortunately, you risk becoming a casualty yourself.

My point is that the deliberate slaughter of human babies is savagery that evokes the deepest horror, whether the killing of Hebrew infants at Pharaoh’s command, the 40 at Herod’s command, the (faked) reports of Belgian or Kuwaiti babies, or the real but ignored cases of children killed by the mNRA poisons.

I call it like it is. Did you know the Palestinian Authority has a Martyrs Fund aka a Pay-for-slay?

Under Palestinian Authority law, every terrorist who is killed attacking Israel is defined as a “Martyr” whose family is immediately rewarded by the PA with a 6,000 shekels ($1,511) grant and a 1,400 ($353) per month allowance for life.

This means each family of the 1,500 dead Hamas terrorists who invaded Israel will receive 7,400 shekels for this first month. Families of those terrorists who were married and had children will receive even more. The PA will pay at least 11,100,000 shekels ($2,789,430) this month as a reward for participating in last week’s murders and atrocities against Israeli civilians.

In addition, the 50 captured Hamas terrorist murderers will receive monthly salaries in prison starting at 1,400 shekels/month which will eventually rise to 12,000 shekels/month. Terrorists who are married and have children will receive even higher salaries. This month these newly arrested terrorists will receive at least 70,000 shekels ($17,590).

In total, the PA will pay at least 11,170,000 shekels ($2,807,021) in payments under the PA’s “Pay-for-Slay” program to the Hamas terrorists this month. This is a low estimate since as the war continues there will be additional Hamas terrorist "Martyrs" and prisoners. This figure is added to the more than 100,000,000 shekels/month the PA already pays in salaries to imprisoned terrorists and families of terrorist “Martyrs.” EU countries and Norway, are currently the largest funders of the PA because the PA could not possibly make these terror payments without them. These donor countries like to pretend that it’s not their money rewarding terrorists, but everyone knows that the PA could not reward terrorists without this generous foreign funding. When payments to teachers, police, and street cleaners are taken care of by international donors, the PA has the hundreds of millions available it needs to pay for terror.

Regarding that hospital bombing, here is something to consider:

"Early in a conflict an atrocity committed by The Enemy is selected and given considerable publicity…It is elevated to be the moral yardstick against which your side’s atrocities are judged, and, by comparison, your side’s atrocities always pale …

Thereafter The Enemy’s atrocity is the central referent of your side’s propaganda…Their atrocity justifies any your side subsequently commits." —les Online

Emotional manipulation using fabricated defenseless children is not new. To get WW1 rolling German soldiers were bayoneting non-existent Belgian infants. In order to ignite the gulf war imaginary newborns were being yanked out of incubators in Kuwait.

These horrific tall tales - written by the very puppetmasters who created and are benefiting from the carnage and which are propagated through the dishonest media they own and control - are designed to provoke an emotional response in the recipient so that they act (and advocate) in a way that is favorable to the powers that shouldn't be.

The stories are counterfeit which is the point: emotions are so much easier to control than facts. Cue the slaughter, plundering, pillaging, & propaganda by the collective elite dark triad. Lights Camera. Action.

Do not believe the photos! So my dad and I were in a bar yesterday and they had CNN on, silently, thank God. For once I watched it and noticed a few things. First, a headline: Hundreds Suspected dead in Hospital Attack (or blast, I can't remember.) Key word is "Suspected". I can suspect anything, like suspect pharma CEOs will confess to murder or Biden isn't running the US into the ground, but it does not make either true. "Suspect" means nothing.

Second, there was a photo they kept putting up of a supposed hospital hall with a huge raging fire out the end, as if the end of the building had been blown off. There was a "body" in the hall blurred out, yet covered by a sheet, so you really could not tell what it was. There was a chair with a shadow against the wall. Absolutely FAKE, which I said loudly. The light from that fire could not have generated that shadow because it was not a single light source, further, based on the angle there's no way that shadow came from the light of that fire. Second, cameras can't come close to capturing scenes with extreme differences in light, unlike our eyes can. Have you ever tried to take a photo of someone inside and capture a scene outside, like there is a nice sunny scene of fall covered trees? What happens is either the person inside can be see and the outside is blinding white or the outside is beautiful and the person is a black silhouette. The only way around this is a flash fill. If there was a fire outside that was that bright, no way are you capturing detail inside a hallway without a flash, which would have eliminated the shadow from the chair and made a different one. Former professional photographer here. I tried to find the photo online but could only find one similar, which was very blurry, but suffered from the same lighting problem. Both photos were red, orange and yellow, designed to evoke terror. And where's the smoke from the fire in those hallways? Anyone?

They also showed two other suspect photos... one of a fire outside the hospital with an ambulance parked outside. The ambulance and other objects had distinct shadows like a car would make in daytime sun, but this was supposedly a night time shot. People sure did look calm for a fire being that close to them and again, I have a problem with the lighting - no way is the fire that bright yet I'm seeing everything in the dark. Not buying it. Another stupid one was a distance shot of the smoke in the air, supposedly from that fire. Broad daylight, not night. But the camera moved around and shook, making it look like the smoke moved. But the smoke NEVER moved. Not at all! In other words, they probably filmed a still photo instead of an actual scene. Liars!

I should watch CNN more often. I'd tear every one of these photos apart. Do not believe a single thing you are seeing!

Here's the photo with the ambulance. It's not graphic at all. Notice the shadows under the ambulance. Notice some people cast shadows but others do not, plus the shadows are well defined but the people are blurred. Doesn't work like that. The angle of the shadows of the poles was weird. Those had to be made by artificial light. Who stops to put up an artificial light source in the middle of a bombing? At the same time, the abmulance shadow is too bright and too clear not to be a daytime shadow and there's no way the same light source made those shadows plus the ones on the poles. Also, you don't get those kind of shadows at night. https://en.ultimasnoticias.com.ve/news/world/At-least-750-dead-in-Israeli-attack-on-Gaza-hospital/

Also, about these CNN photos in general, and like Jeff said yesterday or day before - this is 2023 and we should have clear, ungrainy photos, not something that looks like it was snapped on a disk camera in 1980.

And with a fire that bright, wouldn't you expect there to be shadows cast in the opposite direction of the ones we're seeing?

Expand full comment

Without your breakdown of the photo, I would have thought that the shadows were cast by a large parking lot light. And the people were blurry because they were running. Do you think that’s not possible? (Definitely not defending the lying liars at CNN, just curious as to how to better understand this.)

Expand full comment

Possibly they could be blurry because running, but have a look at the person by the tire. They are blurred, but the shadow is really well defined. If the person was moving so fast they blurred, then their shadow should be fuzzy on the edges, too. It could be a parking lot light, but those are generally orange/yellow in photos because they are sodium vapor lights, not white light. But all this being said, the fire should still be so much brighter than the rest of the scene.

My guess is a LED floodlight, it's the right color for that. I do take the point about the fire not being bright enough, and the people being more blurred than their shadows. For me it's not 100% yet, it's sus, but there might be an explanation I haven't seen yet that is sufficiently satisfying. (The shadow edges are still a little blurred too, after all, and the contrast there is higher so perhaps that helps make them more distinct than the lower-contrast humans, bearing in mind this appears to be taken in low-light, so longer exposure, and you can see the graininess as well - digital sensors don't do so well in low light situations.)

Expand full comment

I will say, based on the changing angles of the shadows on the posts, this looks like there is some kind of floodlight up high on the building the photo is being taken from. It's a point source, close enough that the shadows have slightly different angles on each post (which sunlight wouldn't do). It also explains why the ambulance shadow is so clear, it's right below the light. Now, how there is a bright light in an area with the power out is another question, maybe they have a generator, maybe it's a completely different fire somewhere else. That's the thing, you can never be quite sure based just on a photo.

But the Romans didn’t destroy them. They were scattered, but never ceased to exist. In fact one of the best pieces of evidence for God is the continued existence of His chosen people throughout the centuries. Every other culture, when emigrating to another country, assimilates within 6 generations (usually fewer than 6) and ceases to exist as a separate ethnic group. The Jews, though, while somewhat assimilating to their new country, never stop being Jewish. Yes, some do, but there is always a remnant. You can’t say that about, for example, Norwegian or Chinese people who move to the US.

Almighty God destroyed Israel Himself. After Christ Jesus fulfilled the Law and completed the Old Covenant, the New Covenant is no respecter of ethnicity.

In short, they rejected their birthright and it was opened up to all mankind through one man...Jesus.

Hi Eliza, thanks for your comment. It's interesting context, in that Romans 11:5 refers to a 'remnant' and in Romans 11:14 Paul expresses a desire to 'save' those of his ethnicity. Romans 11:20 states that the Jews who did NOT believe in Jesus were 'broken off' branches, but gentiles can be saved through faith in Christ Jesus.

Expand full comment

Exactly where.... does "Paul tells Christians that the JEWS will always be God's people"?

And exactly where ...does he say they will be saved at "Christ's return"?

First, Paul through the Holy Spirit never uses the term "Jew". He always uses the term Israel. The distinction is important. When Paul talks about Israel, he is referring to the risen Messiah's Israel of the New Covenant established in His shed blood. All Israel WILL be saved, both Gentile believers and Jewish believers in the risen Christ. This is the Israel of the New Covenant. Those who did not and will not accept Christ are not a part of the Israel. And many Jews did not accept Him.

Second, Romans 11:26-27 says quoting Isaiah 59:20-21, "And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob; for this is My (Christ's) covenant with them, when I take away their sins." Jacob is the 12 tribes. At the time of the Advent, the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel had been taken into captivity centuries before. When the Southern Kingdom of Judah invited them to return to the land, they had declined and picked up and headed west through the Caucasus Mountains and disappeared off the pages of recorded history. At the time of Jesus, the people were primarily of Judah (Jews) and a few of Levi. When the Temple was destroyed, along with the genealogies, and Jerusalem was left desolate, the people were dispersed (those who survived) and having been cut off from the Covenant due to their rejection of the Messiah are now counted among the Gentiles just as the lost 10 tribes are. The Israel of God's covenant are everyone who accepted the Messiah, who came out of Zion, and "took away their sins" when He finished His work on the cross and ascended to the throne at the right hand of God. Isaiah was talking about the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ only. Not some hypothetical future "return" of Christ.

Some scholars have said that Paul was refering to the time period he was in and so that has already occurred. Jesus the Christ appeared to Paul in the etheric and has remained with us in the etheric, saying that he would never leave his people. He will not be coming back in the flesh.

Expand full comment

The Israel of the New Covenant are ALL those who accepted the Messiah during and after his ministry, Jew and Gentile alike. Those of Israel who rejected Him were "branches of the olive tree" that were broken off and "cast away" in judgement. Thus 70 AD and the destruction of the Temple and Jerusalem. In Romans 11, Paul, talking to the Gentile Christians, warns them not to look down upon Jews because not all have rejected Christ as he himself is an Israelite of the tribe of Benjamin. He explains that God reserved to Himself "a remnant according to the election of grace"... "whom He foreknew."

Paul goes on to further explain how he desires to "provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save SOME of them" by his ministry to the Gentiles. So he admonishes the Gentile Christians not to be haughty, but fear. For if the natural branches could be broken off because of unbelief, they also could be cut off if they do not "stand by faith." Those who did not accept the Messiah were cut off from God's Covenant and the Israel of God are now all who believe in the risen Savior.

In Luke 21, Jesus warns His disciples that the Temple will be destroyed and then warns them what to watch for so they may escape the desolation of Jerusalem (v 20). In verse 22, Jesus says, "For these are the days of vengeance that all things which are written (in the OT) may be fulfilled."

There is only one Covenant and there is only one Israel: the New Covenant Israel of Jesus Christ. The people who call themselves "Jews" gave up their connection with the covenant of God with the advent of Christ, their rejection of Him and the pouring out of God's wrath on apostate Israel in 70 AD. In effect, they are now accounted among the unbelieving Gentiles. "The days of vengeance" were poured out only once so that all things that were written in the Old Testament may be fulfilled. God fulfilled all things written in the OT when His Son died on the cross and rose to ascend to the throne.

It still remains, though, that faithful Jews exist, all over the world and in Israel. And it has always looked to me like those faithful Jews are still blessed. They are often wealthy and successful. It’s one of the reasons they are hated. When God chose them, He blessed them but it also put a target on their backs. When they follow God, He blesses them. There is trouble, but they are able to persevere.

If that blessing is over and God has cast them away, how do you explain their continued existence even in foreign countries, generation after generation? And their continued blessing? How do you explain the gathering back to the land of Israel, in fulfillment of prophecy?

Ethnically jewish people can survive in the same way anglo-saxon people survive; it doesn't require divine intervention. Further, rabbinic judaism as I understand it, has traditionally encouraged intelligence and diligence, both of which are going to help a group to survive better.

The more significant point is, "faithful" Jews are only faithful if they acknowledge the Messiah. Moses prophesied that a prophet greater than himself was coming, and "you must listen to him"; we know who that One "greater than Moses" is, so if a Jewish person refuses to accept Him, in doing so they disobey Moses and are no longer faithful to their covenant.

There are also plenty of evil men who are "wealthy and successful". That means nothing.

The 21st century political state called Israel has nothing to do with "the fulfillment of prophecy." I've explained the status of so-called Jews in my other reply to you. (And point in fact, most Jews today are not religious but completely secular.)

What you are doing is what the modern day church has been doing for a long time. They are imposing current events onto Scripture as a means to interpreting Scripture. This is completely erroneous. Scripture must be interpreted with Scripture which requires more study than the modern day church wants to invest.

Daniel 9:26-27 prophesies the coming of the armies to destroy Jerusalem and the Temple. The parallel passage to Matt 24 and Daniel 9 is Luke 21:20-22 which makes clear the meaning of Matt and Daniel. This is the "abomination of desolation" and, as Luke explains, was to be the armed invasion of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple as God brings the Old Covenant to a close. In 68 AD, the Edomites, the age long enemies of Israel, surrounded and invaded the city and slaughtered 8,500 people in the Temple. In the words of Josephus, this was "the beginning of the destruction of the city. From this very day may be dated the overthrow of her wall and the ruin of her affairs." These are "the days of vengeance that all things which are written (in the OT) may be fulfilled" Luke 21:22.

The modern church does not understand these prophecies because they do not understand the economy of God's covenants and their meaning. This was the closing out of the Old Covenant with God's wrath poured out on apostate Israel and the establishment of the New Covenant in Christ's shed blood. Jesus said in Matt 24:21, "For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, NOR EVER SHALL BE." The great tribulation refers to the destruction of Temple in that generation alone (70 AD), an absolutely unique event in history never to be repeated.
