The author is a prominent American Christian conservative who was a presidential candidate for the paleo-conservative Constitution Party in 2008, when he was endorsed by Ron Paul.
He is a relentless foe of neo-conservatism and frequently criticizes the neocon hostility towards Russia. His views are representative of an influential and substantial part of Trump’s popular support.
According to some prophecy preachers, the Rapture is supposed to take place tomorrow, July 27, 2018. The reason for this prediction is due to the fact that there is going to be another “blood” moon tomorrow—the longest “blood” moon in this century, they say.
No, the Rapture won’t take place tomorrow or the day after that. But that doesn’t stop these prophecy kooks from constantly predicting the date of the Rapture. Practically every Jewish holiday or feast day, “blood” moon or unusual solar occurrence will prompt some prophecy-obsessed preacher somewhere to predict the Rapture will take place on that date. (It would take volumes to talk about all of the predictions that prophecy preachers have made regarding when the Rapture will take place over the past seventy years.)
Of course, after the predicted date comes and goes, there is always another predicted date. And after the Rapture doesn’t occur tomorrow, the same televangelists and prophecy preachers will continue to predict future dates, and people will continue to believe and support these false prophets. Don’t ask me to explain people’s gullibility with all of that. It’s just the way it is.
Mind you, I was educated in dispensational prophecy doctrines myself. I was taught them, I believed them and, for over thirty years, I taught them to others. (I’ve asked God to forgive me for that, and now I’m doing my best to try and awaken people to those egregiously erroneous teachings.) So, I am very familiar with the way it all works.
The catalyst for the obsession with prophetic futurism was basically two things: 1) the massive acceptance by fundamentalist/evangelical Christians of the Scofield Reference Bible (originally published in 1909 and revised in 1917) and 2) the creation of the Zionist State of Israel in 1948.
Scofield convinced a majority of Christians that Christ’s return was in two parts: the Rapture (which was imminent) and Second Coming. He treats the Rapture and Second Coming as two distinct events separated in time by a span of seven years, with the first 3½ years known as “The Tribulation” and the second 3½ years known as “The Great Tribulation.” This understanding was based on Scofield’s misinterpretation of Daniel’s Seventy Weeks prophecy in the Old Testament Book of Daniel. And, of course, when Israel came into existence in 1948, Christians became convinced that this was the beginning of prophetic end-time events—and the rest, as they say, is history.
I well remember preachers telling people back in the 1970s that the Rapture was going to take place in 1988—forty years after the inception of modern Israel. They based that prediction on the passage of Scripture where Jesus said:
NOW LEARN A PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE; WHEN HIS BRANCH IS YET TENDER, AND PUTTETH FORTH LEAVES, YE KNOW THAT SUMMER IS NIGH: SO LIKEWISE YE, WHEN YE SHALL SEE ALL THESE THINGS, KNOW THAT IT IS NEAR, EVEN AT THE DOORS. VERILY I SAY UNTO YOU, THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS, TILL ALL THESE THINGS BE FULFILLED. (MATTHEW 24:32-34 KJV)
These preachers said that the fig tree putting forth leaves was Rothschild’s Israel (no, most Christians do not understand modern Israel’s connection to Rothschild Zionism—to this very day, they do not make the connection. In fact, they do not even know what Rothschild Zionism is), and since a biblical generation is most commonly forty years, the Rapture HAD to take place in 1988 (some said 1981 to allow for the seven year “Tribulation”), because Jesus said THAT generation would not pass until it was all (Christ’s Second Coming) fulfilled. Obviously, 1988 was thirty years ago, and the Rapture did not take place.
Hence, prophecy preachers have had to adjust and readjust their interpretations of that passage of Scripture several times now.
My point is, all of this date-setting about the Rapture is nothing new. It’s been going on ever since the Scofield Reference Bible saturated evangelical Christianity and the State of Israel came into existence.
One of the things I have come to understand about prophetic futurism is that EVERYTHING HINGES ON ISRAEL. That’s why prophecy preachers and dispensational Bible teachers are obsessed with modern Israel. To them, Israel is at the core of their understanding of prophecy. I will even dare to say that, to them, Christ is not the focus of prophecy; Israel is.
This flagrant misinterpretation of Scripture (popularized by Scofield) has turned modern Israel into a god in the eyes of many Christians. Oh, they would never admit to committing the sin of idolatry with Israel, but in truth, that is exactly what many of them are doing.
After much study on the subject, I am convinced that Cyrus Ingerson Scofield was an agent of the Rothschilds and that his reference Bible was deliberately used to blind Christians to what the true nature and purpose of the soon-to-be modern State of Israel was. And it worked—BIG TIME. To most Christians today, modern Israel is a “miracle of God”—a fulfillment of biblical prophecy—and the atheistic, Talmudic, Kabbalistic Jews who control the Zionist state are “God’s Chosen People.”
As a result, America (thanks to seventy years of indoctrination by tens of thousands of pastors, radio and TV preachers, churches and Bible colleges and seminaries) has literally become a doormat (and puppet) for Israel.
No country on earth could attack a U.S. Navy vessel (the USS Liberty) and kill 34 American Sailors and Marines with complete and total impunity. Beyond that, the U.S. government (with the assistance of the mainstream media) deliberately and aggressively covered up this attack and even apologized on behalf of the attacking country. No country on earth could get by with such a thing. No country, that is, except Israel.
In addition, most of America’s invasions, bombings, military conflicts and wars over the past several decades (including the current ones) have been little more than proxy wars for Israel. Pro-Israel policies and agendas literally dominate America’s politics, news media and entertainment industries—not to mention most churches, of course. And the Donald Trump presidency has only deepened Christians’ infatuation (even obsession) with Israel-driven, Israel-focused prophecy.
No, the Rapture will not take place tomorrow—or the day after that. The whole Scofield/dispensationalist/futurist/Israel-based prophecy doctrines are egregious error. These doctrines have produced and are producing great harm to the Church and to our country. In fact, these doctrines are resulting in great death and destruction as evil forces are manipulating these doctrines to inflict much war and bloodshed around the world.
This is another reason why I am enthusiastically promoting Christopher Bollyn’s new book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East.
As I wrote in this column last week, What If Everything We’ve Been Told Is A Lie? What if everything we’ve been told about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” is a lie? And indeed it is.
IT’S TIME FOR THE TRUTH TO COME OUT!
And Christopher Bollyn’s investigative research brings out the truth like nothing I’ve read to date. His research connects the dots and destroys the myths.
This is written on the book’s back cover:
THE GOVERNMENT AND MEDIA HAVE MISLED US ABOUT 9/11 IN ORDER TO COMPEL PUBLIC OPINION TO SUPPORT THE WAR ON TERROR.
WHY HAVE WE GONE ALONG WITH IT? DO WE ACCEPT ENDLESS WAR AS NORMAL? ARE WE NUMB TO THE SUFFERING CAUSED BY OUR MILITARY INTERVENTIONS?
NO. WE HAVE SIMPLY BEEN PROPAGANDIZED INTO SUBMISSION. WE HAVE BEEN DECEIVED INTO THINKING THAT THE WAR ON TERROR IS A GOOD THING, A VALIANT STRUGGLE AGAINST TERRORISTS WHO INTEND TO ATTACK US AS WE WERE ON 9/11.
BEHIND THE WAR ON TERROR IS A STRATEGIC PLAN CRAFTED DECADES IN ADVANCE TO REDRAW THE MAP OF THE MIDDLE EAST. 9/11 WAS A FALSE-FLAG OPERATION BLAMED ON MUSLIMS IN ORDER TO START THE MILITARY OPERATIONS FOR THAT STRATEGIC PLAN. RECOGNIZING THE ORIGIN OF THE PLAN IS CRUCIAL TO UNDERSTANDING THE DECEPTION THAT HAS CHANGED OUR WORLD.
Bollyn’s book will not be appreciated or accepted by everyone. The people who are perpetuating the lies about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” most certainly will not appreciate or accept it. And there will be many people—including Christians—who are very comfortable believing the lies about 9/11 and the “War on Terror” who will not appreciate and accept Bollyn’s book. But I appreciate it. And anyone who is a truth-seeker will appreciate and LOVE this book.
I doubt that Mr. Bollyn had what I said in this column today in mind when he wrote The War On Terror. He may not even have studied these issues from a theological perspective (I know nothing of Bollyn’s religious background). But what Christopher Bollyn wrote in his book is helping to expose what is surely one of the greatest deceptions in history. And I’m serious about that.
I urge readers to get this book. If you don’t read any other book this year, read Christopher Bollyn’s blockbuster new book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East.
This book is selling as fast as we are being supplied. It is very encouraging to see how many people want to learn the truth. And this book tells the truth like few books do.
Oh! And don’t worry. You will be around to read this book—tomorrow’s Rapture date and longest “blood” moon notwithstanding.
Again, to order Christopher Bollyn’s fantastic new book The War On Terror: The Plot To Rule The Middle East, go here:
A car has smashed into a security barrier outside the Houses of Parliament in London, images on social media show. Police arrested a man and cordoned off the area. The area has been swamped by around 200 armed police.
Members of the public at the scene said the ramming of the barriers near parliament looked like a deliberate crash.
Now, Scotland yard are treating the incident as a terrorist attack.
A number of ambulances have attended the scene to help pedestrians hit by the car before it crashed into the barriers.
Members of the public should not be concerned if they see armed police on the street, as this is simply routine in the aftermath of a terror attack.
So far, two people have been taking to hospital but their injuries are not life-threatening.
The police have urged members of the public to remain vigilant.
British Police say that several pedestrians were injured when a vehicle hit barriers outside London’s Parliament around 7.30am local time on Tuesday.
The London Ambulance Service wrote: "We have treated two people at the scene for injuries that are not believed to be serious and have taken to hospital."
Parliament Square has shut down, and a large number of police cars descended on the site. Westminster tube station have also been closed.
Witness Jason Williams told the popular ITV programme Good Morning Britain that the ramming incident “seemed to be deliberate.”
“I don’t know if it was a tip-off, a warning, that this was like a bomb… There seems to be maybe about 200 police here now, and it’s all happened very quickly in the space of like half an hour,” the witness said.
Police have arrested a man and cordoned off the area.
Since the Westminster Bridge attack last year, the Houses of Parliament have been surrounded by steel security barriers.
‘Fake News’ isn’t only produced by newspapers and broadcasters publishing lies. Just as important in the MSM’s fake news armoury is that they refuse to publish events and facts that do not fit with the liberal agenda. Which is why the suicide of a prominent Dutch politician in the most disturbing circumstances is being totally ignored by the mainstream Lying Press.
Scanning Google news results today, the story of Dutch politician Willie Dille‘s suicide is shown to have been completely blanked out by mainstream English-language news organisations.
Shortly before committing suicide, she claimed, in a video, that she had been kidnapped and gang-raped by Muslims and that the whole thing had been arranged by Arnoud van Doorn. Like Dille, Arnoud van Doorn had been a member of Geert Wilders’ anti-Islam party, the PVV. Bizarrely, however, Van Doorn left the party and converted to Islam.
How can the refusal to report this story be justified? Even if Dille’s claims about rape and kidnap were false (and so far there is no indication of that), the fact that she made them and then committed suicide would be newsworthy in itself.
Imagine the roles were reversed. Image a Muslim or other BAME politician claimed she had been kidnapped and gang-raped by racists or Islamophobes and then committed suicide. Do you think the MSM would ignore THAT?
Here is the video she made, now with English sub-titles.
At last! A sign of life and commonsense in the Church of England! A senior C of E bishop last night called for a near-total ban on the wearing of burkas in public.
The former Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali, said burkas and niqabs should be outlawed in a wide range of situations where people interact, including in hospitals, GP surgeries, universities and schools.
The cleric said a ban should also extend to areas where there were legitimate security and safety concerns, such as at airports or while driving a car. However, he said it was acceptable for women to wear face veils at home, while in the street and at prayer.
Furthermore, the call from the Pakistani-born bishop, who led the Diocese of Rochester between 1994 and 2009, drew support last night from Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. Lord Carey said ‘oppressive’ veils should not become ‘normalised’.
Their comments represent the most powerful intervention to date by senior clerics on the issue. They will add to the fierce debate sparked last week when former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson wrote a newspaper article on why he opposed a ban on veils in public but compared women in burkas to ‘letter boxes’ and ‘bank robbers’.
Bishop Nazir-Ali told The Mail on Sunday: ‘We have all seen how even male terrorists have escaped arrest by donning a burka and making an effective getaway.
‘For reasons of national security, there will be places like Parliament or Whitehall or town halls and council chambers where the burka should not be allowed.’
He said institutions including universities and schools were justified in wanting to know the identities of visitors or those who worked or studied there.
Staff at airports and courts also needed to see people’s faces.
Perhaps more controversially, he added: ‘Many professions require personal interaction with the client. In business, both the trader and the customer should be able to see one another’s face and to interpret expressions if the transaction is to be mutually beneficial. This is even more true of doctors, dentists, nurses and paramedics.’
Warning of the threat posed by the wearing of veils, he said: ‘It is true that some women choose to wear the burka or niqab because they feel it makes them more observant Muslims…
‘It is also true, however, that the burka or niqab is being weaponised by Islamists to impose what they consider to be “Islamic” character on communities, neighbourhoods and even nations.
‘In Britain, this has serious implications for the freedom of women, but it also has implications for integration and social cohesion. Where there is widespread use of the face veil, there will be greater isolation from one another and a sense of segregation will grow.’
Lord Carey, Archbishop of Canterbury between 1991 and 2002, said he ‘strongly supported’ the position taken by Bishop Nazir-Ali.
He said: ‘We need to be able to identify people in government buildings, transport centres and tourist attractions, to take three examples. Security concerns trump cultural rights.’

Christianity is such an ancient faith that every week brings a string of anniversaries. This coming week is no exception:
Here are just a few things that happened this week in Church history. They include the first Native American to be baptized as a Protestant, the beginning of a major cathedral construction, and the start of the First Crusade.
First Native American Protestant is Baptized – Aug. 13, 1587
This week marks the anniversary of the first recorded baptism of a Native American into Protestant Christianity.
On Aug. 13, 1587, Manteo, a Croatan Indian known for being an ally of the early English settlers, was baptized into the Church of England on Roanoke Island.
According to the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Manteo was known to help the English with navigation and visited the British Isles on multiple occasions.
“While in England, Manteo met Sir Walter Raleigh and spent time with the scientist Thomas Harriot, with whom he was already acquainted,” noted the Nature and Cultural Resources Department.
“He worked with Harriot learning English and teaching Harriot the Algonquian language. Raleigh designated Manteo ‘Lord of Roanoke,’ and it is possible that his baptism was a requirement of receiving that title.”
The baptism of Manteo is still remembered in the lectionary calendar of The Episcopal Church, which commemorates both his baptism and the baptism of Virginia Dare, the first English settler born in a North American colony.
Construction on Cologne Cathedral Begins – Aug. 15, 1248
This week marks the anniversary of the beginning of the construction of the Cologne Cathedral in Germany, one of the largest church buildings in the world and a notable example of Medieval Gothic architecture.
Once the site of earlier churches, on Aug. 15, 1284, Archbishop Konrad von Hochstaden laid the foundation stone for the new structure.
“As well as being the largest Gothic church in Northern Europe, it is also Germany’s most popular monument of medieval art, receiving an average of 20,000 visitors a day,” noted Art Encyclopedia.
“Located close to the River Rhine, the cathedral is famous for its architectural statues, steep gables, blind tracery and unifying series of spires, as well as its rare works of religious art.”
The cathedral recently became notorious when several thousand Muslim ‘refugees’ groped and raped hundreds of young German women on New Year’s Eve.
The First Crusade Begins – Aug. 15, 1096
This week marks the anniversary of the beginning of the First Crusade, when large numbers of Christian Europeans sought to recapture various holy sites in the Middle East.
Months after Pope Urban II made his call to Crusade to help the Byzantine Empire retake eastern holdings seized by Islamic armies, Christian forces left Byzantium.
“Four armies of Crusaders were formed from troops of different Western European regions, led by Raymond of Saint-Gilles, Godfrey of Bouillon, Hugh of Vermandois and Bohemond of Taranto (with his nephew, Tancred),” noted History.com.
“A less organized band of knights and commoners known as the ‘People’s Crusade’ set off before the others under the command of a popular preacher known as Peter the Hermit.”
The First Crusade was technically a success, with the Christians reconquering Jerusalem and much of the western Middle East.
The Europhiles in Brussels are bullies – but it’s just not working! The more Brussels tries to punish Britain for trying to leave the EU, the more British voters are saying they just want out – and fast! And the more the liberal elite in Brussels try to bully the countries of Eastern Europe into taking thousands of ‘refugees’, the more they are rejecting the whole idea of EU rule.
The Hungarian government in Bdapest no longer believes the EU’s vision is Europe’s ideal, which could create a wholesale power shift across the bloc.
Mr Orbán is helping his country navigate from a world dominated by the United States and Brussels to a more open vision where small nations find a balance between a growing list of bigger powers.
Budapest has not been willing to leave the EU because it enjoys a wealth of financial handouts. But that will change in 2020 – at which point Hungary may simply look to walk away.
Russia is on the hunt for local partnerships with EU member states, Vladimir Putin has recently visited Sebastian Kurz, the current holder of the EU’s rotating in presidency, in his search for friends.
Mr Orbán too sees the importance of partnering with Russia as he and his country are sick of Brussels bullying and sees that the EU is splintering.
David Koranyi, senior fellow at the Atlantic Council in Washington and a former Hungarian national-security official, said: “Orban genuinely believes the West is on the decline, and the best days of the EU and NATO are numbered.
“He’s pragmatic enough to keep Hungary in the EU and NATO for now, because the money coming in and the security umbrella still have their value.
“But he sees the 21st century as the rise of a competing governance model, that of the East.”
The most Eurosceptic countries in Europe
Today, I came across THIS ARTICLE in which Dr. Jordan Peterson calls for ‘intact heterosexual two-parent families’ to maintain civilization.
I have to agree with him. He is absolutely right!
Two-parent families are indeed better for the children and help them grow into well-adjusted individuals and adults.
In contrast, single-parent homes are detrimental to the children and can lead to the children developing personality disorders and anti-social behaviour in childhood and adulthood.
The most common and destructive personality disorders are the Cluster B personality disorders, which include Narcissistic Personality Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Anti-Social Personality Disorder, an umbrella term for Sociopathy and Psychopathy.
In all honesty, these personality disorders are pretty much different shades of the same colour and that is why they are spectrum disorders i.e. they all fall within the Cluster B Personality Disorder spectrum.
At the lower end of the spectrum is Narcissism and at the higher end of the spectrum is Psychopathy. Basically, psychopathy is Narcissism in its full malignancy.
All of the disorders are toxic, destructive, erratic, dangerous and sadly, pervasive in society today.
Personally, I believe the reason why society has become increasingly narcissistic, destructive and psychopathic is due to daycare.
Children grow up into adults. Adults form societies and societies form civilizations.
Basically, the home is the bedrock of civilization and herein lies the immense power and influence that we, as women, have.
In one of Fr Ripperger’s videos, he mentioned that “A Woman can make or break a nation by how she raises a SINGLE child”. Truer words never spoken!
Today’s feminists, liberals and Social Justice Warriors are so narrow-minded and deluded in their persistent demand for women’s rights and in their rabid insistence that women are oppressed that they fail to see that women already have rights and we are not oppressed.
Instead, we have much greater influence and power, because it is we who form societies.
But Paige, I hear you ask, how does sending your child to daycare create dysfunctional societies and a dying civilization?
You can read all my articles on daycare HERE
Also, another reason why daycare tends to create more antisocial and personality disordered children is this:
Up to the age of 4, children MUST spend their time with the mother.
It is the PARENTS’ JOB (not the State and definitely not daycare) at this crucial period to socialize their children and teach them skills that will prepare them to be social and functional members of society.
Age 4 is when children, biologically and psychologically, are able to socialize properly with other children and adults.
By age 4, the properly socialized child is more readily accepted by other children and adults. He or she is accepted into his or her peer group and goes off with the other children, and they then socialize each other.
Placing your child in daycare before age 4 is arresting their development and social skills.
It will result in an antisocial and pretty much feral child because the child will be socialized, not by its mother or primary caregiver, but by other children, who themselves are not fully socialized because they too are in daycare, instead of being raised by their mothers.
This poorly socialized child results in a toddler with poor social skills, anti-social traits, and possible personality disorders.
As the child grows into adolescence and teenhood, these personality disorders become part of the character and ossify into their personality. This is why personality disorders cannot be fixed or treated.
A personality disorder is not a mental illness; it is a part of the person’s personality.
And a poorly socialized child becomes a toddler and adolescent with anti-social traits, and finally becomes an adult with any one of the above Cluster B Personality traits.
Now, when you have an entire society comprised of these dysfunctional adults, what exactly do you think happens?
I’ll tell you what happens.
You get a society filled with people and leaders who are lacking in empathy, who are narcissistic, sociopathic, psychopathic, dangerous, destructive and malignant.
Like any malignant cancer, this dysfunctional society infiltrates every level of civilization, destroying everything good, wholesome and progressive and destroying other people and each other.
The civilization crumbles and dies. THAT is what happens.
Never ever take your role as a mother lightly. Your responsibility is immense.
Run fast away from any man who might be dating you and who is not supportive of your desire to be a Stay At Home mother and housewife.
A man who expects you to continue to work fulltime outside of the home is a toxic, dysfunctional and malignant person, and most like will display several traits of having a personality disorder. Read my RED FLAGS article for some of these traits.
A healthy man, whether or not he is Catholic, will instinctively understand the importance of having the mother at home in the early years of the child. This is pure instinct and he does not need to know anything about psychology or sociology to get this.
So, if a guy has no understanding or natural inclination towards this, beware.
That man has no empathy, no natural instinct and is malignant.
Choose very carefully who you marry and have children with.
The home is the bedrock of civilization. Two-parent homes create healthy, functional and thriving societies and civilizations.
The child needs a two-parent home, especially in its early years.
The father cannot do it alone and the mother cannot do it alone either.
Both parents need to be present; the mother needs to be at home, raising the child, and the father needs to be in employment, providing for his family so the mother can stay at home and do the most important job of her life, being a mother.
Two-parent homes don’t just birth and raise children; they birth and raise society itself and entire civilizations.
May God help us raise children who do not have to recover from their childhoods.
As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.
Holy Family, pray for us, make our families one with yours!

The Palästinalied (“Palestine Song”, also known as Kreuzlied “Song of the Cross”) is a song written in the early 13th century by Walther von der Vogelweide, the most celebrated lyric poet of Middle High German literature. It is one of the few songs by Walther for which a melody has survived.
The first line of the subtitles is Middle High German, the second modern German and on the bottom is the English translation.
Glorious and powerful song from the times when Christians bent the knee only to God!
