Five benefits of solitude... that should be everyone's priority
As active participants of life, as doers and shakers, as people who want to make a difference, we are busy. But like anything in our world that gets out of balance, working without rest can lead to consequences that negate the positive results of our work.
Bob Kull, author of SOLITUDE: Seeking Wisdom in Extremes, wrote: "We tend to value activity above everything else, but all beings need to rest and recuperate. The widespread occurrence of depression in our culture may be linked to our refusal to allow ourselves quiet time.
Feeling the need to be constantly busy can prevent us from turning inward. When we are out of balance, our activity doesn’t arise from a place of stillness and wisdom." Solitude, especially in our society today, is not a luxury or an activity we pencil in on calendars. It is a need.
The benefits of solitude should propel it to a list topper of our priorities. You can't clear your mind of all the turmoil in the world, until you break away. Five Benefits to Solitude:
1. Rebooting the brain
Being “on” or even working diligently doesn’t allow your mind a chance to turn off and rest. Even when you are watching a movie, your brain is working to listen actively and follow the story. But when you are alone and without any distractions, your brain can recharge.
2. Working through problems
When you sit with a friend and talk, your mind is engaging in your friend’s world as well as yours. It may be an effective way to process your problems and emotions, but to find a solution and come to peace with it requires solitude.
3. Finding your voice
When you are with people, it is easy to blend your voice with theirs and come to group thoughts and decisions. The influence of others is inevitable. But when you are in solitude, the noises are gone and you are able to hear what you truly want to say and believe.
4. Improving your relationships
In spending time alone and seeking to understand yourself better, you become a better wife, friend, boss. You will also find yourself appreciating your loved ones more after some quiet time in reflection.
5. Satisfying your own needs
It is extremely easy to become dependent on others for every emotional or physical need we may have. Our society encourages “togetherness” much more than solitude.
But it is in the stillness of being alone that we learn that each of us is indeed, enough. We discover ways to become more confident in who we are. Gratitude and happiness can then take root.
Ester Buchholz, Ph.D. in The Call of Solitude wrote, "Being alone gives us the power to regulate and adjust our lives. It can teach us fortitude and the ability to satisfy our own needs. A restorer of energy, the stillness of alone experiences provides us with much-needed rest.
It brings forth our longing to explore, our curiosity about the unknown, our will to be an individual, our hopes for freedom. Alone time is fuel for life."
Solitude is important. And it’s important to note that solitude is not isolation. Isolation is running from something. Solitude is resting in the beauty of being alone.
Do You Believe? ... A silent interview on Christ?
People of different faith backgrounds were asked deeply personal questions about their relationship with Christ. Watch as they silently testify of our Savior.
"Preach Jesus, and when necessary, use words." ~St. Francis
A diverse group of people have come together to proclaim their testimony of Christ. Each of them have walked different paths to get where they are today. Lutheran, Baptist, gangster, Armenian refugee, Catholic...
Together we testify that Christ lives! That he is real. We pray that as you watch this film that you will feel it too. That the light of Christ will pour down from heaven and touch your heart... all without words, because for this film, they just aren't necessary.
All responses are true to the questions they were asked in this order.

In a restaurant in Kunshan, China, more than a dozen robots cook and deliver food to customers. Will robots replace every job? Find out what skill humans are better at than robots.
The skills you need to avoid being replaced by a robot
The fear of losing jobs to technology dates back centuries. But there's one human skill that can help you stay relevant in an automated world.
As artificial intelligence advances, so does the human fear of being replaced by a computer. It's a fear that goes back to the Industrial Revolution, when textile workers protested new technology by destroying machines that could do their jobs quicker and more efficiently.
Now that robots (literally) walk the earth, there is an ever-more-pressing question of whether they will spell the end of employment for humans or actually just complement us and make us more productive. But even if it's the latter, some jobs have already vanished, and others are sure to follow. So what functions will these robots not be able to perform?
A Harvard Business Review article details a new National Bureau of Economic Research working paper, which finds robots have not been replacing jobs that require a quintessential human skill: social communication. The paper, by David J. Deming of the Harvard Graduate School of Education, explains:
While computers perform cognitive tasks of rapidly increasing complexity, simple human interaction has proven difficult to automate.
Since 1980, jobs with high social skill requirements have experienced greater relative growth throughout the wage distribution. Moreover, employment and wage growth has been strongest in jobs that require high levels of both cognitive skill and social skill.
"The days of being able to plug away in isolation on a quantitative problem and be paid well for it are increasingly over," Deming tells HBR. "You need both types of skills."
According to Deming, jobs that require social skills grew by 24 percent from 1980 to 2012 while math-intensive jobs grew by only 11 percent. The jobs under the greatest threat of automation, he says, are routine-based positions like those of factory workers and filing clerks.
Deming took data from a longitudinal survey that tracked respondents from adolescence into their mid-50s through test scores, sports or club participation in high school, and adult employment and income, to compare wages of people who have high social skills with those who have low social skills.
While it's not a perfect study, the results are interesting. "People who have higher social skills, as measured by the survey, earn more money - even after controlling for things like their education, their cognitive skills (measured by standardized scores), what type of job they're in, etc. - than those with poor social skills," HBR writes.
"There seems to be a positive return to social skills in the labor market, according to the data, and that return is relatively greater when people are in jobs that require more interaction with others."
We still don't know if robots will help us or hurt us in the long run, but it's safe to say that if you cultivate your essential human abilities, a robot will have a hard time replacing you.
Why is it, many of the richest Muslim countries won't take
any Christians who are being persecuted... and they won't even take Muslim refugees? The reason: These countries like Saudi Arabia and Qatar are actually backing and financing ISIS and other Radical Islamic Terrorists! These are the same countries that Obama and Bush call our coalition partners in the fight against terrorism? It's all a government scam!
In case you haven't heard, or you are oblivious to the news of the day... America's 'Debt Limit' is now again the latest fabricated crisis in Washington.
Today is October 21th... and your taxes are still going up... and our country is virtually bankrupt. The U.S. government spends $10.5 billion dollars per day - of which $4.5 billion dollars is borrowed! That means we are going $4.5 billion dollars deeper in the hole - each and every day. Yet Obama pretends all is well. Obama's debt comes right out of your pocket...
Our nation-state is no model of fiscal responsibility. When Barack Obama took office, the national debt was already an impressive $10 trillion. Today it is $18.5 trillion. The national debt is still growing at a rate of more than $50 million an hour.
Here's Obama's "bull crap" for the week... 10/21/2016

CNN host tries to burn Trump on Congress "term limits"... but embarrasses herself, showing she's the clueless one
Well, this is awkward. Donald Trump has been calling for term limits for quite some time, but he's upped the ante in the last twenty four hours, calling for a Constitutional amendment to impose term limits on Congress.
Enter CNN host Brooke Baldwin, who rushed to mock Trump's suggestion, which, judging by her tone, Baldwin found dumb. Baldwin, you see, is super smart. Or not. As the Free Beacon notes:
As part of a new policy to “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C., Trump announced Tuesday he would push for a constitutional amendment as president to impose term limits on all members of Congress. “Correct me, there already are term limits, so what does he mean?”
Baldwin skeptically asked reporter Dana Bash. Indeed, Baldwin had to be corrected. Bash did so politely. “Right. Well there are term limits on the presidency, of course, and one of the big debates for some time has been whether or not, the fact there are no term limits in Congress...
Whether that helps to breed corruption because it breeds a whole industry, which we see every day, those of us who live in Washington, of lobbyists who are paid by corporations and groups to influence Congress, and they also give money to the Congress-people’s campaigns, and so on and so forth,” Bash said.
For those who don't know: Presidents are term limited; Congress is not. Whether or not they should be is a debate worth having. In rushing to condemn the idea simply because it came from Donald Trump, Baldwin revealed her own limitations.

Lack of interest could stop Crooked Hillary on election day
Crooked Hillary seems to have edged out to a bit of a lead in the last few weeks, but she might have an Election Day problem that's being overlooked. Essentially, she's just not that interesting, and key voter groups - African Americans and young people - might not show up for her. Via Townhall:
If there’s one thing that’s constant with young voters and African-Americans, it’s that they have a rapidly decreasing interest in this election. It’s a point of concern for the Clinton campaign regarding turnout, especially since interest has dropped precipitously since 2008 with these two groups that happen to be cornerstones of the Democratic Party base.
Now, the silver lining is that Hispanic interest mirrors the overall mood for voters this cycle (via WSJ): Some 65% of African-Americans rate themselves as highly interested in the election, down 18 points from the 2012 election and down 28 points from 2008, the Journal/NBC News survey found.
Only 54% of younger voters, those under age 35, say they have high interest in the election, down 6 points from the 2012 election and nearly 30 points from 2008.
The only good news for Mrs. Clinton, Hispanic voters appear to be engaged, but that doesn't mean they will vote for Crooked Hillary. Some 69% of Hispanic voters rate themselves as highly interested in the campaign, up 1 point from 2012 and nearly equal to the electorate overall.
The polls seem pretty credible at this point, but consider: if Trump returns thousands of previously uninvolved voters to the polls, and no one ends up showing up because Hillary's so incredibly uninspiring, we could be in for a major surprise on Election Day.

More evidence of FBI sabotage of Clinton investigation
FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey’s decision to not suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.
According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s corrupt leadership.
“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have been convened, but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision.
“We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.” The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.

Hillary Clinton dumps on America... literally!
Hazmat crews in Gwinnett County, Georgia, were called in to clean up a disgusting trail of sewage - dumped by a Democratic Party campaign bus. According to the Lawrenceville Police Department, officers were called to the scene after reports of an RV dumping sewage illegally into a storm drain.
Incriminating photos taken by an employee of nearby O’Reilly Auto Parts show a big blue bus clearly dumping a river of sewage from its tank onto the side of the road.
The bus - emblazoned with a big picture of Hillary Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine, as well the slogan, “Forward Together” - is part of the Democratic National Committee’s “Forward Together” tour, which is campaigning in Georgia.
Officers at the scene were greeted by a large amount of wet, used toilet paper, as well as a “foul smell” in the air.
The Democratic National Committee was quick to respond, and apologize:
"This was an unacceptable mistake and we apologize to the Lawrenceville community for any harm that was caused,” said a DNC spokesperson. We are taking corrective action with the charter bus company to prevent this from ever happening again and contacting local officials to determine the best course of action.”
According to the schedule, the “Forward Together” tour bus will be spreading more liberal sh*t in Atlanta on Wednesday night, at a presidential debate watch party hosted by former Atlanta Mayor Shirley Franklin.

NFL viewer count down by 30%! Kaepernick Effect? Falling rates force NFL TV networks to give back free ads
The Colin Kaepernick-led player protests may be hurting the NFL broadcast networks where its hurts them the most: in the pocketbook.
With NFL TV ratings plunging by double-digits over the first quarter of the 2016 season, some NFL TV networks are being forced to provide so-called "make-goods" to advertisers, media sources tell Sporting News.
When advertisers and ad agencies buy commercial time on NFL partner TV networks, they're promised certain numbers in terms of ratings and audiences. If the game fails to reach those numbers, the networks have to "make good" for the audience shortfall by providing the equivalent of free commercial time.
The last thing TV networks want to do is give back valuable commercial time, especially when ad rates for a 30-second TV commercials during NFL games cost anywhere from $500,000 to $600,000 for prime time games on Madison Avenue.
But if NFL TV ratings continue to fall, it could cost the league's partner networks — CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN and NFL Network — millions worth of make-good ads. NFL game programming is the most expensive programming on TV, with CBS, NBC, Fox and ESPN paying a combined $5 billion per year for the right to air games through 2021.
You can't blame it all on Kaepernick: Numerous factors are driving NFL TV ratings down this season, say sports media experts.
The U.S. presidential election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is luring viewers to news channels like Fox and CNN, away from sport TV (This Sunday's presidential debate between Trump and Clinton will again cut into ratings for the Sunday Night Football game between the Giants and Packers).
The NFL has also been missing three star quarterbacks who've attracted national audiences in the past: the retired Peyton Manning, the suspended Tom Brady (who returns on Sunday) and the injured Tony Romo.
Viewers also have their pick of a glut of pro and college football to view. The quality of play is down this year, with many prime-time games turning into snooze-fests because of poor play, lopsided scores and questionable officiating.
It's also possible that the damage done to Brady's image from Deflategate — plus Ray Rice knocking out his fiancee and other scandals — may be finally catching up to the Teflon NFL.
Rather than blaming Kaepernick, Jason Whitlock of FS1's "Speak for Yourself" blames a "hyper-progressive movement that has lurched into sports — and changed the conversation about sports."
But you can't discount the impact from Kaepernick and protesting players either. Enraged by these protests, a small but vocal online group is urging millions of football fans to #BoycottNFL. A Rasmussen poll found 32% of adults are less likely to watch games due the Kaepernick-led player protests.
Some of these fans are angry at Kaepernick for politicizing sports, viewing it as the last refuge from political correctness and the Culture Wars. Others see the protests as an insult to police officers, members of the U.S. military and family whose loved ones have died in the line of duty.
There's something else at work here, too.
After decades of watching the NFL market itself as a paragon of patriotism, some fans feel betrayed by the league's passive acceptance of players refusing to salute the flag - while uniformed members of the police and armed forces stand at attention a few feet away.

Deep learning algorithms have taught these aerial robots how to follow an unfamiliar path
Autonomous search-and-rescue drones... outperform humans at navigating unfamiliar forest paths and trails
Autonomous drones have already mastered the wide-open skies. DHL, Amazon, and Google have each demonstrated self-piloting drones that can deliver packages.
In fact, the latter two, as The Verge recently reported, are ready to implement full-scale drone delivery operations in the US and are simply waiting on regulators to get out of the way. But drones that can fly autonomously in complex environments with multiple obstacles (i.e. not the wide-open sky) are another story.
Navigation in terrains that are densely populated with obstacles is an ongoing challenge for researchers. There’s been some headway by a team at MIT, who last November demonstrated an autonomous drone avoiding trees while flying at high speeds in a wide-open field.
Now, a group of Swiss researchers have developed technology that allows drones to autonomously navigate forest trails, a development they say could one day aid in search-and-rescue operations.
The group, comprised of researchers from the Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence, the University of Zurich, and NCCR Robotics, used deep learning neural networks to tackle the challenge of training an autonomous drone to navigate a densely wooded forest.
Teaching a computer to recognize the direction of a trail is a complex task. It can even be difficult for a human to determine the direction of a trail. Just take a look at these photos of trails taken by the researchers and try to determine which direction they’re headed in:
In order to train their algorithm, the researchers mounted three GoPro cameras to a headset and took off on hiking trails across the Swiss Alps. One camera was pointed ahead of the hiker, one to the left, and one to the right.
After hours spent on these trails, the researchers had snapped over 20,000 images (images in front of the hiker and on either side). Then they used these images to teach their algorithm what the boundaries of a hiking trail should look like.
The result was a deep-learning algorithm that allows a drone equipped with a single forward-facing color camera to navigate a previously-unseen trail completely on its own — no human interaction whatsoever.
The algorithm, the researchers claim, was even better than humans at determining the correct direction of the trails it traveled on, guessing the correct direction of a trail with 85 percent accuracy. Humans tasked with determining the direction of the same trails were able to do so correctly only 82 percent of the time.
The team cautions that these results are still in very preliminary stages. But while there’s a lot more work to be done before autonomous drones will be able to search forests for missing people.
The researchers believe their work is a good sign of how deep neural network will allow autonomous vehicles to navigate situations that involve complex and highly dimensional inputs.
Check out the algorithm in action in the video below - which is scored with some pretty rad glitchy video-game music - posted by the researchers. Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLnNHwp-H8E
Looking at the stars is always humbling. Wrong understandings of their movement are even more so.
The Cosmos are vaster than he ancients imagined
As a teenager, I frequently climbed on top of my dad’s shop to look at the stars. When I looked upon a clear, unobstructed night sky, it was as if the starry hosts engulfed me.
The lights making their slow dance across the heavens gave a perspective of existence that is hard to find elsewhere. It compelled me to reflect on how big God is and how truly small I am.
Due to centuries of observations, ideological struggles, and successful scientific endeavors, we know quite a bit about the starry hosts. We know that the universe is vast - that there are billions of galaxies with billions of stars and planets each.
And we know that Earth rotates at about 1,000 miles per hour and revolves at a speed of 70,000 miles per hour around the sun. None of this, however, is obvious from an Earth-bound perspective. If I were to go back in time to before the 1600s, though I would be looking at the same starry hosts, I would understand the universe differently.
In the early 1500s, a Polish astronomer developed a theory that changed the way we see the universe. The theory was so controversial that Nicolas Copernicus resisted publishing it until right before his death. What was this contestable idea? Copernicus conjectured that the sun, not Earth, was at the center of the solar system.
Before Copernicus’ theory became popular, most scientists claimed that Earth was at the center. The idea is not as silly as it seems. Even if the theory ultimately turned out to be false, ancient scientists based their ideas on many complex, reasonable explanations.
Suppose you are in the Northern Hemisphere stargazing, and you look up and see the Big Dipper. You will notice the constellation of stars making a counterclockwise, circular motion around the North Star.
Night after night, this pattern stays more or less the same. In fact, you would have observed the same pattern centuries ago.
Ancient astronomers observed that not only do the predictable patterns seem immovable, but also the angular view of all points of heavenly light doesn’t change. That is, the points of light that you see stay in the same pattern as they traverse the sky.
The second-century Egyptian astronomer Ptolemy (and others) pointed to this phenomenon, known as the stellar parallax, as evidence that Earth is immobile. They reasoned that if Earth were moving around another planet or star, the angular patterns of the stars would change.
Two thousand years ago, no one fathomed the vastness of the universe. The stellar parallax was easily explained when we realized the immense distance of these stars from Earth.
But to the ancient world, the universe was much smaller. We didn’t even know that there were billions of galaxies until Edwin Hubble made his famous discovery in the early 20th century.
Given that many ancient astronomers thought Earth was stationary, it isn’t hard to see how Aristotle, Ptolemy, and others arrived at the conclusion that Earth was the center of the universe. The moon, sun, and stars certainly appear to move around a stationary world.
Indeed, it appears as if the entire starry host circles Earth. This gave ancient observers the impression that the stars and planets are moving around a planet that is the center of not just the solar system but also the entire universe.
I’m humbled by these ancient ideas: so astute and justified, yet ultimately false. This sobers my view of reality. God’s creation is so complex that it takes centuries - and will take centuries more - to understand what is all around us.

“My role with the campaign is to manage all that,” explained Creamer, also on hidden camera. He added: “Wherever Trump and Pence are gonna be, we have events.” Paying people to attend (and instigate others) an opponent’s rally is probably not illegal - but it’s certainly below-the-belt campaigning.

Stem-Cell therapy miracles... from wheelchairs to walking
A 71-year-old woman who could only move her left thumb after suffering a devastating stroke is now walking again after undergoing a stem cell procedure. The woman was part of a stem cell study done on stroke victims at Stanford University - and she wasn’t the only one whose life was completely changed by the treatment…
Two other patients also got up out of their wheelchairs and started walking again. In total, 18 stroke survivors who thought they’d be paralyzed for the rest of their lives experienced what Stanford researchers are calling “remarkable” recoveries. Most have regained almost FULL mobility.
The researchers admit they were “stunned” by the results. That’s because they fly in the face of everything mainstream medicine will tell you about recovering from a stroke. You see, most doctors believe it’s pointless to continue therapy if a patient hasn’t seen any improvement six months after their stroke.
But here’s the thing… all of the patients in the study had passed the critical six-month mark. Some had a stroke as many as THREE YEARS before. This is one of the most amazing examples of the healing power of stem cells that I’ve heard of. But I’m not surprised.
And it’s such a simple procedure… the Stanford researchers harvested stem cells from adult donors and injected them into damaged areas of the stroke victims’ skulls. The patients returned home the same day with only a slight headache. And most started to show improvement within the first 24 hours.
What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell procedures were once controversial. But I want to be clear: the stem cells used today are NOT the “embryonic” stem cells used years ago in research. We’ve since learned that one of the best places to get stem cells is actually from your own fat tissue.
You’re born with a reserve of “replacement cells” - or stem cells. They’re your body’s master cells. You can use them to replace any cell that’s damaged or dying. When they’re deployed, stem cells heal and regenerate the tissue or organ they’re assigned to, and can help you make stunning recoveries.
The “secret weapons” inside stem cells that makes this possible are tiny proteins called growth factors.
Human growth factors are cellular messengers that send signals to activate the production of new cells, or to instruct a cell to create new cells with different functions. This special signaling mechanism is what triggers the healing power of these cells.
Here are five ways you can increase your body’s production of stem cells right now…
• Practice Tai Chi. This ancient Chinese martial art has been practiced for over 3,000 years. But only recently have scientists realized that this self-paced system of slow, gentle stretching can increase your number of stem cells in your body as you get older. These stem cells, called CD34 cells, are produced deep in your bone marrow.
• Eat blue-green algae. Blue-green algae is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. There are two kinds, spirulina and a variety known as AFA.
Researchers at the University of South Florida found that the AFA variety can greatly increase the production of human stem cells in bone marrow AFA is available as a supplement or a powder and can be found online. I recommend 800 mg a day.
• Eat more seaweed. Seaweed contains an important molecule called fucoidan. This compound increases the release of adult stem cells into the bloodstream.
It also helps mobilize those stem cells so they can travel to the parts of the body that need repair and renewal. Fucoidan is found primarily in brown seaweed and makes a delicious salad. You can also purchase supplements online. I suggest 400 mg a day.
• Add carnosine. I recommend getting 1,000 mg of carnosine every day. Grass-fed, pasture-raised meat is the best way to get carnosine from food. A typical 7-ounce serving of beef has about 250 mg of carnosine. If you can’t get enough by eating red meat, I recommend you supplement with natural L-carnosine. Take 500 mg twice a day.
• Fast for two days every six months. Periodic calorie restriction — no food for two days every six months — kills older, damaged stem cells and generates new ones. This is a technique I’ve used for years to jumpstart the healing and rejuvenation process.
Wichita Falls TX issues "Rattlesnake Alert!"
The week has officially gone to the snakes. Wichita Falls city officials are telling residents to be on the lookout for rattlesnakes, attributing growth in the reptiles' population to an increase of rodents in the area.
The warning comes the same week that a Florida man reported that a six-foot-long snake slithered out from under the hood of his car during rush hour traffic. While the Wichita Falls snake lookout doesn't address cars, officials are telling residents to be aware of their surroundings and learn to recognize the different snake species that are likely to be in the area.
Rattlesnakes are usually not aggressive and do not prey on humans, according to center officials - they usually will retreat or escape when given the opportunity. "There are many nonvenomous snake that are beneficial for the environment and act as predators to the rat infestation our community is having," the release said.
This weekend, Wichita Falls animal control employees were called to collect four "large" rattlesnakes in residential areas, according to Katrena Mitchell, the city's administrator of the animal control department. Usually the department receives only one or two calls regarding rattlesnakes a week.
"They're on the move a little bit more," Mitchell said. "Be careful where you're stepping and where you're walking. Rattlesnakes don't always rattle."
Several pets have been attacked recently by the snakes, with at least one dying. And though the increased number of rattlesnakes in Wichita Falls now can be partially attributed to fluctuation in weather conditions, the driving factor is an uptick in the snakes' favorite food — rodents.
The city's health department doesn't keep data on reports of rodents, but an official there told the Times Record News on Tuesday that rat and mice populations probably have swelled due to abundant rainfall and record crop yields.
"There's no reason for them to not reproduce right now," said Susan Morris, general environmental administration of the Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District. "I've noticed that when I'm driving on the highway I see them crossing the roads. My assumption would be that they have a lot of food and they have a lot of water."
Rattlesnakes are usually not aggressive and do not prey on humans, according to center officials. Approximately 8,000 people are bitten by rattlesnakes yearly in the U.S. with 10 to 15 deaths occurring, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Thought for the day...
WWIII Is On The Brink! Those liberals pushing this diversion say, war will continue until it triggers economic collapse!
One of the main Shemitah Trends of late 2016 is the emerging war in the Middle East. It has every indication of turning into a conflict resembling World War III and day-by-day is becoming more dangerous and extreme.
This could be the war that finally triggers the great economic collapse being planned. Certainly, the storm clouds of war are gathering, as we’ve been covering.
In fact, on Friday, Barack O’bomber is scheduled to decide whether or not to initiate direct US military action against Syria - in part because of Russia’s bombing of Aleppo.
Obama has been forced into making this decision because the Russians along with the Syrians are now winning the war. The wars in Libya, Iraq and now Syria are bankers wars intended to redraw the map in the Middle East while adding to the military burdens of the West - specifically the US.
And the propaganda continues to grow stronger in the west, with the US and NATO constantly proclaiming the dangers of terrorism that they helped foster. In this sense, the wars are entirely artificial and can be called off by the West at any time. Instead, western powers are stoking the flames and Russia and China are starting to pile in as well.
From Russia’s point of view, the attacks are anything but optional and while Russia didn’t get involved in Western attacks for years, now that the attacks have reached Syria, Russia has begun to fight back.
Russia began by bombing ISIS terrorists that Russian generals soon observed had not been bombed by the US at all. Now Russia is providing air cover and bombing for Assad’s attack on Aleppo, an important urban center which he wants to retake. Assad reclaiming this city would be seen as a significant US military setback.
Obama may not decide on active confrontation in Aleppo, but his consideration of direct action against Syria and Russia shows just how close the world is to a war between superpowers.
A CRAZY TIME
It’s a crazy time to be alive, isn’t it? Between war and economic depression it’s hard to know where to turn. Things are ramping up in numerous directions. It was recently announced, for instance, that Chinese forces are heading to Syria to link up with Russia to fight the Islamic State (which is actually the US and CIA).
In fact, Chinese warships are apparently headed to the Middle East as well, which adds yet another element to this massive confrontation.
Syrian government forces, increasingly backed by Russian airpower, are taking back Aleppo, as noted above. Syrian success regarding Aleppo is giving the Pentagon problems, which is likely why Hillary Clinton mentioned it during the last presidential debate where she advocated “a no-fly zone and safe zones” in the region.
This suggestion was promptly blasted by officials on both sides of the aisle who recognized that declaring a no-fly zone in Aleppo would almost immediately start a full-blown war between Russia and the US - perhaps including nuclear weapons.
Already Russia seems involved in hostilities well beyond what’s taking place in the sky. On Wednesday, mortar fire was aimed at Russia’s embassy in Damascus. The shelling lasted two hours and perhaps was intended to send a message to Russia regarding its plans to establish a permanent airbase in Syria.
While the US is not being directly shelled in Syria, it is in Yemen where Iranian-affiliated Houthis sent two missiles in the direction of a US destroyer in the Red Sea. In return, the US military shelled a radar system in the area.
Meanwhile, US affiliated intelligence agencies have been accused of aiming more than missiles in Russia where President Putin’s favorite chauffeur was killed in what many have suggested was an assassination attempt.
CCTV footage taken on Kutuzovsky Avenue in Moscow, reveal another vehicle crossing the highway divider to crash head-on into the presidential BMW which Putin would normally be in… but wasn’t that day.
Vladimir Putin Presidential Chauffeur Killed In Crash. You can see exactly how the "accident" occurred.

Putin hasn’t commented on the crash directly, but one of his Russian ultranationalist allies has issued a statement telling US voters that the alternative to a Trump presidency is … nuclear war. Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who is well known for his confrontational style, said in an interview that Trump was the last hope for de-escalating Moscow/DC tensions.
IS IT ALL STAGE-MANAGED?
If there is one thing I’ve learned about how elite confrontations are managed, it’s that usually both sides are eagerly participating in making the tension worse. It’s usually all manufactured. But that doesn’t make it any less dangerous. Both World War I and II were similarly designed - both sides cooperated to create military tensions that eventually exploded and ended up killing hundreds of millions.
World War I killed 40 million. World War II killed 70 million. How many could die in World War III? No one knows but, given the nuclear arsenal of both sides, we agree with Einstein that World War IV could very well be fought with sticks and stones.
Recently, the Russians have considerably upped domestic alarmism over Western actions. For instance, Russians have just been told to bring their family members and relatives back to Russia. In this stern warning, Russians were also warned that their professional careers and “promotions” may be affected if they fail to comply.
Russia is also setting up a military self-defense exercise that will supposedly involve 40 million or more. These massive movements of people and armaments based on the prospect of war, serve Putin’s agenda well. He is gaining more and more power over Russian society as a consequence of blatant Western aggression.
Usually the West and Russia escalate slowly and stop well before the possibility of accidental conflict. But much as the US seems to be acting with unusual aggression, Russia is doing likewise.
Russian jets have closed in on US ground troops and naval vessels in a confrontational posture while claiming that NATO deployments in the Middle East and around Ukraine are "aggressive steps.”
WAR IS WANTED FOR ECONOMIC REASONS
With so many risks looming, you would think both sides would try to scale back their aggression. But this assumes that war is not wanted. As we know, and I wrote about in my book, Shemitah Trends, war is a necessary part of elite control.
In this case, the war expanding in Syria that is gradually setting Russia against the US will act as the trigger for an economic collapse. The collapse in turn will usher in further chaos and expanded globalization. One can see the preparations taking place. On the surface there are explanations for everything. But underneath a plan is operative.
Since 2008, central banks around the world have boosted liquidity while shoving down rates to ludicrous, even negative levels. This cannot stand for long and is not meant to. It is intended to create a titanic bubble that will inevitably pop.
Central bank monetary inflation will not be blamed for the catastrophic crash and subsequent worldwide depression. Instead, some sort of military confrontation will be blamed. In turn, this will give those who operate central banks plausible deniability. “It was not central banking that caused the crash, but an unstoppable world war.”
Here’s how ZeroHedge put it in an article entitled, “The March to World War III.”
Over the last three years; the U.S. government and the pathetic parrots of the mainstream media have accused Russia of any and every transgression possible, save for (perhaps) kicking puppies or molesting children.
One must strongly suspect that all these lies and innuendo had (and have) a purpose. And the most likely purpose – by far – is the orchestration of World War III. What’s going on is worldwide and is so vast and evil in scope that it is hard to fully understand it.
