VP's Visit: It Makes One Wonder

7 Shevat 5778

Today, in his speech before Israel's Knesset, Vice President Mike Pence made several references to Jerusalem as Israel's capital, to much applause from the Israelis. One key word, however, was not included and that is "undivided,' as in Israel's undivided capital. In fact, during his visit with King Abdullah of Jordan on Sunday, VP Pence reiterated the words of President Trump...

Pence defends Trump's Jerusalem choice to Jordan's King

  • The borders of what constitutes "Jerusalem" are still up for negotiation.
  • The present status quo on the Temple Mount will be maintained.
  • The US remains "committed" to a Two-State Solution
And he repeated it yet again in the Knesset, so there should be no mistaken impressions. It makes one wonder whether people only hear what they want to hear.

Of note, the media is making much of the fact that VP Pence is being treated like, and being accorded the honors due to, a head of state. It makes one wonder. 

Despite President Trump's denials that the US Embassy will move to Jerusalem in 2019, VP Mike Pence insists that it will. It makes one wonder who really has the final word between these two. I've never known a more visible VP. It makes one wonder...

News Report on Pence's Arrival in Israel

What one need not wonder about, however, is VP Mike Pence's commitment to his Christian faith and to his fellow believers around the world. Any attempt on Israel's part to curtail or eliminate missionary activity in Israel will certainly not be tolerated under this American administration. Not if VP Mike Pence has any say in the matter.

In this instance, I'm in agreement with the Arabs. Yankee go home!

The Pain and Joy of Birth

6 Shevat 5778

The following is excerpted from Redemption Unfolding by Alexander Aryeh Mandelbaum (Chapter 11, "Birth pangs of the World of Mashiach"):

The Pains of the Transition Process

In the writings of the Maharal [1520-1609] we find a profound insight into this issue.

He wrote (Netzach Yisrael, Chapter 36) that in nature, all transitions, from one condition to another, involve yissurim. For example, the period of transition from summer to winter, or winter to summer, often brings on physical and/or emotional ailments. Similarly, the period of transition from childhood to adulthood is known to be a very difficult time, during which the teenager and everyone around him or her are prone to tensions and misunderstandings.

So, too, wrote the Maharal, the transition to the system of the Messianic Age will involve yissurim

The Messianic Era

Many of us were brought up to think that in the Messianic era, the world will continue to exist as it exists today, albeit with a few improvements. Wealth and peace will be abundant; life will be full of happiness and contentment. However, the Maharal (Netzach Yisrael, Chapter 47) wrote, this is a superficial and unrealistic understanding of the times of Moshiach. In reality, a complete change will come over the world, to the extent that the world of Moshiach will be considered a new creation in comparison to the world as we know it.

Our Sages said (see Maharal, ibid.) that the world of Moshiach will be a spiritual world of true reality. It says in Tehillim (126:1): "...with the return of Zion [we understood that we had been] dreaming." When we witness the spiritual world of Moshiach, we will understand that our current world was superficial, unreal - a fantasy dream (Machsheves Charutz 3).


The Changeover of Systems

In that new world all the old systems will undergo regeneration.

An example of such a changeover of systems is the birth of a baby. At the exact moment of birth all of the life support systems of the fetus (respiratory, blood systems, etc.) undergo a radical change. The systems that enabled life in the womb would cause instant death outside the womb. Likewise, if the new life support systems took over inside the womb, they, too would cause death to the fetus.

Our Sages called the troubles before the coming of Moshiach, 'birth pangs of the Moshiach.' Just as birth pangs precede and actuate the changing of the life systems, so too the troubles of Ikvesa DeMashicha allow for the changeover of world systems, from our present world to the world of Moshiach.

The World of True Reality

The transition to the world of Moshiach necessitates the negation of all of the false systems which abound in our world.

In this vein, Rav Eliyahu Dessler wrote (Michtav Me'Eliyahu, Part 3, page 205): "The destruction of Edom [our last exile] will only come through the destruction of this world [as we know it]. The Holy One Blessed be He will cause the very foundations of life on earth to collapse. Tranquility will be disrupted, personal lives will be filled with worry, fear and yissurim, and the entire world will cower in dread of destruction and devastation.... Only then will the light of Moshiach be revealed - 'and the saviors shall go up to Mount Zion to judge the mountain of Eisav....' (Ovadya 1:21).

"For only by achieving nullification and obliteration of this world will mankind be able to rise up and see with a true spiritual perspective. Then the kingdom of Edom will be destroyed, and the light of Moshiach will be revealed."

Why Point A Finger At The Jew?

5 Shevat 5778

This is going to be a Q Anon update. If you don't know what I'm talking about, begin here.

In the wake of the exposure of the FISA Court Memo to US House Representatives, 'Q' made another large intel drop in the wee hours of the morning on Friday. Most of the messages seemed to be addressing this development. But, right in the middle, there appeared a series of photos without caption or explanation or reference to the original source. They included some famous, "evil" characters like David Rockefeller, George Soros, Jacob Rothschild and the current Pope, but most of those pictured were impossible to accurately identify. Since no hint was given to the relevance of these pictures to the messages conveyed by 'Q', one is left to conclude that he means to draw a connection between the NWO evildoers to the downfall of the leftist liberals in America. 

As is typical of this "phenomenon," everyone is left to his or her best guess. 

Those people who have moved to the forefront in disseminating the material through live podcasts go line by line giving their best guess as to what it means and who it references with input from viewers' comments. But, there is no way to confirm if the guesses are correct. 

Back to the pictures I mentioned before. One was quite shocking to me. And this is really the reason I am addressing this issue again in a blog post. It is this one here...
There were three people providing commentary on this podcast to "decode Q." I'm going to transcribe the entire commentary for this photo, because I think it is very important for you to hear.
Woman #1: "Somebody commented that the background looks like Hell, ...like they had a party and it's a Hell background."
Woman #2: "Now, notice that the Pope is kissing that guy's hand rather than the other way around."
Guy: "Yep, Jacob Rothschild."
Woman #1: "Oh, that's a good find."
Woman #2: "That is significant, that is very significant."
Guy: "What is up with that, people? What does that tell you? And we've seen that picture a number of times, I'm sure most of you have, in the chat, that's a pretty famous picture among this community."
Woman #2: "Everybody kisses the Pope's ring. When do you see the Pope kissing just a normal person's hand? That tells us a lot."
Guy: "I'd say it's no normal person apparently. Right? We know exactly who that is.
So, did they take from this photo exactly what 'Q' intended they should take from it. If so, he is no "white-hat" patriot, at least not where the American Jewish community is concerned. Because it's all a lie.

Actually, the woman who wanted to imply that this scene took place at some perverse Illuminati "party with a Hell background" was not completely remiss. It was at Yad Vashem and I guess parts of it could be used as a "Hell background." It's easier to identify from this uncropped image where more of the background is actually visible...

In fact, this is decidedly NOT Jacob Rothschild. He doesn't even look like Jacob Rothschild. A simple Google search revealed the following about this man's identity...
This photograph has been circulating online for several years, and is frequently accompanied by anti-Semitic messages promulgating various conspiracy theories about the Rockefeller and Rothschild families, among others.
...In actuality, this photograph does not feature Rockefeller, Rothschild, or Kissinger. This image was taken on 25 May 2014 at Jerusalem’s Holocaust memorial center Yad Vashem, and it shows the Pope making a historic visit to greet survivors of the World War II genocide. The original photograph is available via Alamy, where it was posted with the following caption:
Pope Francis visits the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, attended by Israeli President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on May 26 2014. In his first Middle East tour since his anointment in 2013, Pope Francis held a historic prayer service with the Ecumenical Patriarch in Jerusalem on Sunday. This was the first reunion between the two Christian sects in fifty years.
The following is an excerpt from a EuroNews.com report about the Pope’s 2014 visit to Yad Vashem:

Pope Francis navigated the minefield of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and bowed to kiss the hands of Holocaust survivors on Monday, the last day of a trip to the Middle East laden with bold personal gestures.
“Never again, Lord. Never again!” he said in the dimly-lit Hall of Remembrance in the Yad Vashem Museum which commemorates six million Jews killed by the Nazis in World War Two.
According to Yad Vashem, the Pope met with six Holocaust survivors during his visit: Avraham Harshalom, Chava Shik, Joseph Gottdenker, Moshe Ha-Elion, Eliezer Grynfeld, and Sonia Tunik-Geron. The viral picture appears to show the Pope kissing the hand of Mr. Grynfeld:  (Source)
If anything nefarious was going on, it was with the Pope staging such a potentially incendiary photo op, whatever lame excuse he gave for it. He had to know how it would be misinterpreted and used against Jews. He is not naive!

The only reason to include this photograph was to elicit the very reaction that it garnered. Ergo 'Q' and whatever shenanigans they and their masters are up to does not bode well for the Jews.

"Storm" Analysis

1 Shevat 5778
Rosh Chodesh

"Grant not, Hashem, the desires of the wicked one; do not cause his conspiracy to be carried out, for them to be exalted, Selah." - Tehillim 140.9

I get the impression that some of my readers think that the sources I use in my blog posts represent the sum total of my research on these subjects. Let me tell you now. Nothing could be further from the truth. I research long and diligently - all sides - before I feel comfortable to draw any conclusions. Not only have I been looking into some of these matters for years, in some cases, I have actual personal experience from the inside. Any source I choose to include in a blog post is for demonstration purposes to show the readers that I'm not making something up out of thin air.

That said, I'd like to move on and try to connect a few dots with regard to the subject matter of the past three days - "The Storm."

In case it was not clear before, "The Storm" is the public expression of what has been developing in secret or under the radar for many decades, if not longer. "The Storm" will be considered to have arrived when indictments are unsealed and public arrests are made involving thousands of people, especially high-profile people, like Bill and Hillary Clinton who have now outlasted their usefulness, and many with Jewish names or Jewish connections, r"l. One of the highest priorities for the rank and file of Trump supporters is the arrest of those with rumored ties to child trafficking and purported pedophile rings.

I must digress here and ask a thought-provoking question. Who is the head of the most far-reaching, longest-acting pedophile ring in the world? Answer that and you'll know who sits at the very top of the pyramid. 

When these arrests begin to take place, it is commonly assumed that a violent push-back will result from the aptly named "anti-fa" crowd. The plan is purportedly for Trump to act via executive orders and for the military to enforce them and maintain order across the country through the imposition of martial law. Where it goes from there, your imagination is as good as mine I'm sure. So, that is "The Storm."

You may be wondering what the point is of all this? Well, there is a sizable portion of the American population that believes their country is in danger and that this is the only way to save it. They are willing to risk everything to that end. The rank and file at the bottom, many of them decent people, have no clue that they will actually bring about the very thing they abhor the most - the New World Order. Everyone is being used. The lower the person is on the totem pole, the less he understands the true nature of the beast. It controls both sides. There is no escape from it. Not in the West.

At the Clintons' level, they know the game is rigged. I think they told Hillary that she was going to be the next president. It was in the bag. Trump was selected to be opposite her to insure her election would be most plausible. And I have no doubt he was in on it, too. Somewhere along the line, he accepted some help with his business that left him with a debt to repay and this is how the lender wanted to collect. He knew it was supposed to be an act, a game like his reality show. No one was more surprised by his win than Trump and Hillary Clinton. 

That's why she was so smashed up over the loss. They wanted them to believe it totally to make it seem as real as possible. Since the Powers That Be were getting very near their ultimate goal, it had to be played masterfully. And when the moment of truth arrives, she and Bill both, along with many other gasping, squirming fish will be caught in the net and hauled away to some American gulag - maybe even Guantanamo - if they don't get something worse.

If all of this turmoil results in an outright civil war in America, all the better for the Powers That Be. Destroy the old order and from out of the chaos will come a new order. It's entirely possible that the coup will succeed without too much resistance, at least in the beginning. That's the point of this Q phenomenon, in my view - urging the radical right to cooperate because these are patriots acting in their name and on their behalf. They are wearing "the white hats." 

This is not an America which will be kind to Jews. Here is a sampling of comments taken from this group of "patriots" on Monday:

It's always right there, smoldering just beneath the surface - that old New Testament antisemitism. These are not the Israel-loving Christians many Jews have become familiar with. These are Christians who answered the Pope's call for the Crusades in the Middle Ages. Is there a Jewish reader here who does not understand the significance of that?

Blackwater's Christian Crusaders

Can it happen on US soil? Do you really want to wait to find out? 

It may just be a coincidence that a very popular Neo-Nazi website is known as "Stormfront." But, we don't believe in "coincidence."

This is what a lot of people want very badly. It's what a lot of very powerful people want very badly. Will they succeed? Only God stands between them and the realization of their plans and only God knows how far He is willing to let them go before He reins them in and puts a stop to their evil once and for all.

The words have come from many respected sources, not the least of which is our Tanakh. Israel is the safest place for Jews. Israel is where all Jews belong.

Is "The Calm Before the Storm" About to End? (Part 3)

The Storm Unleashed

Q Anon's most important message seems to be...

Trust Trump. Trust the military. When martial law comes down, don't fear it, welcome it, it is for your own protection. Spread this message far and wide so people's minds will be eased when they realize what is happening.

And believe it or not, a whole lot of gullible people are swallowing this message whole.

Trump likes to surround himself with generals and compliments the military every chance he gets. However, he is the Commander-in-Chief after all. 

Too Many Generals In Trump Administration?
President Donald Trump named retired Marine Gen. Jim Mattis as Defense Secretary, the highest-ranking civilian position in the Pentagon. Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly was named first to head the Homeland Security Department and then replaced Reince Priebus as White House Chief of Staff.
Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster replaced Air Force Gen. Mike Flynn as the Trump Administration’s National Security Advisor. And Attorney General Jeff Sessions has nominated Army Maj. Gen. Mark Inch to head the Bureau of Prisons. If approved, as he likely will be, there will be four military generals serving in top positions normally held by civilians. Relatively speaking, that’s a lot.
Several key National Security Council positions are going to retired military officers as well. Questions have already been raised about whether too many generals and overall military influence risks tipping the delicate civil-military relations balance that has kept America strong.
See, that's the thing though. As Commander-in-Chief, Trump is in absolute control of the military. And the military is known for being, well, militant. What happens when you mix militancy, nationalism and religion? (The Jews know only too well.)
Donald Trump’s election has led to such a steep rise in fundamentalist Christian evangelizing and religious bigotry in the U.S. armed forces that the matter is reaching the level of a “national security threat,” according to information shared exclusively with Newsweek by an organization that represents and advocates for secular and minority religious views in the military.

...“With the advent of Trump as the commander in chief of our armed forces, M[ilitary] R[eligious] F[reedom] F[oundation] has experienced a massive influx of new military and civilian personnel complaints of religion-based prejudice and bigotry, most of them coming from non-fundamentalist Christians being persecuted by their military superiors for not being ‘Christian enough,’” [lawyer Michael] Weinstein tells Newsweek.

He says noncommissioned officers at one Air Force base reported that their superiors told them Trump would make it USAF policy that in order for “disbelieving Jews” to be allowed into the USAF or deemed fit for promotions, they would have to show via objectively established behavior that they were at least honestly “considering the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.”
...The military recently backtracked on an edict requiring thousands of married couples in a marital program called “Strong Bonds” to participate in Protestant prayer sessions. As of 2014, more than 37,000 Army personnel participated in the Strong Bonds program.
...The commingling of radical Christianity and the U.S. war fighter has been under way for some time now. In 2007, the Department of Defense’s inspector general issued a report regarding a cadre of ranking DoD officials and officers who “abused their authority” by promoting a video for “Christian Embassy,” a Washington-based, high-level evangelizing outfit with a website designed to make it look like an arm of the U.S. government.

Fundamentalist views are decidedly in the minority in the general population, but they have adherents in some of the U.S. military’s most powerful positions, especially in and around Washington, D.C., and in Colorado Springs, home of the U.S. Air Force Academy and the nation’s nuclear command center.
The U.S. military has long been seeded with radical Christian fundamentalists—sometimes called Christian Dominionists or Christian Reconstructionists—who believe a “Warrior Jesus” has their backs while they fight against Islam. They believe they are establishing a “Kingdom of God” on earth, starting with the United States,....

Is Q Anon for real? Are we weeks, days or even hours from a military coup in America that will leave a Dominionist regime in power? We'd better pray not because this will not be good for the Jews.

28 Tevet 5778

[Advance warning: This is a very big subject which there is not room on a blog to explain in depth. I would, however, like to give you enough of a heads-up about what's going on to forewarn you if it turns out to signal trouble ahead for the Jews. If you want to investigate for yourself, follow the internal links provided here or google it.]

[See Part I - Preparing For the Storm]

Part II - Storm Clouds Gathering

The "Q Anon Phenomenon" is of very recent origin, but according to one source, it already has attained a following in the hundreds of thousands.
Over the last month and a half, the Storm has spread from the depths of 4chan and 8chan to Reddit, YouTube, and Twitter, where it’s found hundreds of thousands of devout followers. Some of the most popular explainer videos boast nearly 200,000 views, and the QAnon hashtag has gotten so popular, it’s honestly difficult to track. (I signed up for one of those freebie “Track Your Hashtag Now!” services and #QAnon hit the 2,000-post limit within four hours.) Some poor soul even took the time to write a 117-page book charting Q’s rise to power, which I’m guessing has been seen at least as many times as this very aggressive Imgur guide, which was at 137,000 views as of Sunday night.
This is a sign of the growing popularity of Christian Nationalism on the American political right.

Q Anon may be new, but the movement which has given rise to him (them) is not. "Q" is the culmination of a long-sought plan for Christian domination of the United States of America. (Google Dominionism and Christian Reconstructionism.) And they really believe that they have their chance with President Donald J. Trump.

Above is a photo taken at one of several events where Trump was anointed by the laying on of hands before becoming president. Notice the participation of future VP Mike Pence to his right. Following is another...

Even Huffpost was clued in early on...
How Dominionists Gained Control Of The Trump Campaign
Whether Donald Trump knows it or not, Dominionists are now in control of his presidential campaign. In recent weeks, Trump has appointed Stephen Bannon to the position of campaign CEO and Kellyanne Conway as campaign manager. Both of these individuals are members of the Council For National Policy, a secretive Dominionists organization. In fact, Kellyanne Conway sits on the executive committee.
Dominionists believe that America is a Christian nation and they oppose the separation of church and state.

...They mix well with Christian Reconstructionists who want to impose strict biblical laws on America including execution for adultery, blasphemy, and homosexuality. These two fringe religious groups make up the majority of the Council’s 500 member base; along with a colorful array of extreme activists on the far right. The Council’s goal is to manipulate government agenda from within.
It was to and for this constituency that Trump spoke in his 2017 Christmas speech...

Why Christian nationalists love Trump
...But where did this cross-toting, flag-waving, and sometimes confusion-inducing form of Trumpian Christian nationalism come from, and why does it appear to resonate with throngs of Americans? And how in the world did Trump, hardly a paragon of conservative Christian virtue, end up as its champion?
A “dominionist” project decades in the making
American Christian nationalism has many forms and iterations, but it was birthed by the same spark that ignited the American Revolution. Some of the earliest revolutionaries were firebrand poets who imagined America as an all-encompassing theocracy and insisted freedom from the English crown could transform the colonies into a Protestant Holy Land. Their dream ultimately died in the hands more secular-minded men we now call the Founding Fathers, but the broader tradition of faith-infused politics continued to thrive throughout American history. From the ecstatic preachers of the various Great Awakenings to the founding of America-centric faith traditions such as Mormonism (which regards the Constitution as a divinely inspired document), Americans have a rich tradition of blurring God and country.
But as pervasive as these fusions of religion and politics were, the Christian nationalist scaffolding currently propping up Trump is far more specific, and relatively new. It shares many theological ideas with the broader spectrum of evangelicalism, but adds a different brand of intensity and emphasis (especially domestically). Its origins are also more recent, beginning with the rise of the Religious Right in the 1970s, when leaders such as Jerry Falwell, Sr. and Pat Robertson characterized America as a “Christian nation”....

Christian nationalism is by no means inherent to evangelicalism — not all Religious Right leaders are Christian nationalists per se, and their culture war battles weren’t all rooted in Christian nationalism. But among their ranks exists a subset that preaches an unusually dogged—and arguably far more subversive—vision of Christian nationalism, beginning in the 1980s. In her 2006 book Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism, Slate writer and author Michelle Goldberg documented the emergence of a small but influential religious community that gained momentum under the tenure of President George W. Bush. She pointed to a constantly shifting menagerie of conservative Christian pastors, homeschool groups, political action committees, and even judges who made it their mission to “restore” America to something that matched their deeply conservative understanding of Christianity.

...Goldberg said that even the rise of Mike Pence, a politician once described as a “theocrat” and who both [Journalist Jeff] Sharlet and Goldberg linked to Christian nationalism, would have shocked her when she published her book roughly a decade ago.

“[Back then], Mike Pence as a Vice President was unimaginable,” she said.
