It looks to me like the Russians are promoting violence in the cities for an excuse to invade. It certainly looks like Russia intends to move into Eastern Ukraine very soon. Most of the Russian army of any worth is dug in on the Ukraine border and ready to invade if any order comes from Putin. The small Ukrainian army can do little to stop the Russians should they invade. Putin wants another Russian empire and what Putin wants Putin gets. This is just the start of that effort.
The Russian SU-24 buzzing of the USS Donald Cook guided-missile destroyer in the Black Sea gave the message that Obama should not even think of providing any direct military support to the Ukrainian military. Putin knows the wind of destiny is in his favor right now. NATO will take no direct military action and Obama will always take the easy way out.
This will be the start of a new cold war. However, this Russian expansion and the future alliances toward Putin’s goal of a Russian led Eurasian union will eventually end in the Ezekiel 38-39 war about 10 to 20 years down the road.
The BLM action in Nevada against the Bundy ranch was getting interesting. I guess they thought they would just send in an overwhelming force and remove Bundy’s cattle from the BLM land. It did not quite work out the way they thought because fed up armed Americans came from elsewhere and were not intimidated by federal orders. The lives of government agents were at risk, so they backed off.
Next time they will do it differently. They will probably find a reason to seize the Bundy’s ranch through some ruling of some federal judge and they will enforce the ranch seizure by sending in a joint government SWAT force in the middle of the night. Then they will bus everyone to government detention centers and just take over the ranch.
The Forest Service is now taking over another very large ranch in SW New Mexico. I wonder if anyone will stand with them?
For the life of me, I cannot figure out why western states just gave the federal government most of their land? I can understand why they allowed federal land management in states that once did not have the resources to manage land within their boundaries, but federal ownership? Somehow, I do not think that is what these sovereign states had in mind when they let the Feds take over.
The federal ownership of lands within sovereign states has been brought up in court but the federal government controls the judges so guess who wins? The federal government owns about 80 percent of Nevada. Large parts of other western states are also owned by our federal government. State sovereignty and federal ownership of these state lands is an oxymoron.
I am not on the side of some of these big cattle ranchers either. They get grazing rights on public lands for a very small fee but they act like they own the thousands of acres that their cattle roam on. They act like you have no right being out there on public land.
I have spent a lot of time camping around in the West. There is little federal land that is not totally fouled by cattle dung and that also goes for the water on federal lands. Cattle dung floating in the rivers does not exactly encourage going in the water. I was into gold panning for a short time, but I gave it up because there is cattle dung all along the stream banks and the flies that breed in them make being anywhere near the water unbearable. If it’s not cattle ranchers claiming the public lands as their own, it is the mining claims that nobody works anymore.
From what I have experienced, I think that federal government actually does a very poor job managing our public land. They cannot even keep our forests from burning down with their stupid burn or no burn policies. Maybe lands that are not national parks should be given back to the states to manage or sell.
I keep waiting for the stock and bond market to crash, but they keep chugging along. It is like 2007 all over again. I hope those playing the market learn from the past but obviously they will not. The big players can get their stocks cashed out pretty quick but the little people in investment and retirement funds simply will not have the time to do that. When the big people start pulling out, the stock market crash will be swift. It is the little guy that will lose.
Beef and pork prices are at all time highs and chicken is no bargain. I guess our taskmasters in Washington think the natives should be forced to eat rice and beans and eat like the Mexicans that they help import.
If you do any Internet transactions you should be aware of the Heartbleed bug. It is the worst bug ever to be found because it directly effects data that people thought was secure. Most of those “secure sites” are not secure after all. Your passwords, encryption keys, credit cards, social security number, address, health data, etc., could have been compromised on any site using OpenSLL (that is most of the addresses starting with HTTPS in your address bar or that shows a lock on the bottom of your browser). That is almost all sites that sell anything on the Internet including most email servers.
I read that our own National Security Agency knew about and exploited this Heartbleed bug for two years for their own spying purposes. If that is true, thanks NSA, for doing your job to keep Americans secure. With friends in government like you, we do not need enemies.
I have told people for quite some time that I do think that Internet sites are secure. Now we find out just one reason. I am sure there will be other reasons found out down the line. I do not think giving personal data over the Internet is the wisest of moves.
I think the Internet is like our electrical Grid. One day you’re going to wake up and find out it no longer operates. Then what? There is one fellow named Adam Crain who wanted to test the security of our grid. What Adam found out shocked him. Homeland security has now just figured out that the lights could go out in Georgia and elsewhere just about anytime that enemy hackers make a concerted effort to attack the grid.
When these things happen, don’t blame God because we became slaves to our own inventions. Blame Al Gore. Remember, Gore invented the Internet and global warming and Gore also reinvented the government when he was Vice President. The reinvention of government first indoctrinated all government workers with socialist politically correct thought. Then socialist group think by the mediocre was the new invention that Al Gore used to run our government. I was in government at the time. I know. We are now reaping the whirlwind of Al Gore’s reinvented government. (Or did this whirlwind come from global warming just like the cold winter that we had?) Control freaks like Al Gore became the gods of many in this nation, then we wonder why our nation is in trouble?
I suppose you know that Windows XP is not being supported anymore. This operating system will be widely exploited by the crooks because about 25 percent of people on the Internet still use Windows XP. This is another security disaster in the making, so if you still have XP and use it on the Internet, you need to figure out how to get a more secure operating system.
I had a Windows XP system running on my old computer until last week. I installed Ubuntu (Linux) on it. There are some differences but it will do everything that XP did and more. Sure, there is some learning curve but there is on any operating system. And this one is free and much more secure than Windows. I no longer feel like a Windows slave and that is worth a lot. I can now choose to use Windows 7 on my primary computer or I can choose to use Ubuntu on my old computer or I can use Google Android on my tablet. Actually, you can put the Windows and Ubuntu operating systems on the same computer and boot up either one. However, if you make one mistake in the installation you might reformat your hard drive or cause your computer to not boot at all. So, I do not recommend taking that risk without having a full backup that you know will work.
Now, if Mozilla, that created the FireFox browser, does not change their Nazi agenda against people who are pro family, they also will get replaced. Don’t be a slave to software or thought police that wish to control your mind. There usually are alternatives.
I guess I would be in remiss to not even mention the four blood moons that are taking place over the next two years. Those hyping these lunar eclipses are everywhere. They even have appeared on the main stream media. Keep in mind that MSM loves for Christians to hype predictions so they can later mock those that take the Bible literally. For that reason, you ought to know why I take the position that I do about these blood moons.
My position does not mean that something significant in the world will not happen in the next two years. It always does, and looking at the world right now you can bet that these guys will be able to find some fulfillment that they can say fulfilled their conjecture. Just keep in mind that these eclipses have nothing at all to do with Joel, Revelation, or what Jesus said. That is explained in my article and the links within.
That article above is the most hit on article on this website so far this month. Last month my article on Russia was tops. It had well over 10,000 downloads. The article on blood moons just moved into number seven on the top downloads of all time on this Blog and it is still climbing. It got over 1500 downloads just yesterday. It probably will slow down for a while since the first of these four blood just took place. If Russia moves into the Ukraine, the Russia article could take off again, or if Russia invades the blood moon conjectures’, might say it is a fulfillment and then both articles would be heavily hit. At this point, it does look like this will be a record month for traffic on my website and Blog.
I can know what Americans are concerned about by the articles on my website that they find using search engines. Next month it might be about the stock market crash or something the Pope did or something else.
