Current Events and Global News In the Last Days!
Welcome to today’s headlines!
So much is happening so fast we decided to provide a batch of timely articles out this week all at once.
Jesus stated that the days before His return for the Church would be as they were in the days of Noah. Thus, we can expect that those who oppose the truth are going to increase and far outnumber those who stand for the truth. Yet, Peter said we should be blessed when reproached even when others blaspheme God for our association with the name of Christ.
Biden-Harris Anti-American Policies
In Just 7 months, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have unleashed a wave of anti-American policies resulting in human suffering and misery that’s nearly impossible to fathom.
Did you know that every 7 days, some 1,500 illegal immigrants infected with COVID come across our southern border? That’s 6,000 COVID carriers every month, and what happens to them? Some get put in Biden’s cages, but the majority of them are put on buses and sent to small towns all across America in the dark of night.
Biden tells us to ‘wear a mask and take the shot’ while flooding our states with COVID infected illegals. When asked to do something about it, he does nothing. He tasked Kamala Harris with “visiting the border” and she did nothing. If you are counting on anyone in the Biden administration to keep you safe, you can be quite confident they will fail you.
It’s easy to forget that Joe Biden has only been president for seven months. The Biden era is such a whirlwind of cruelty it can be hard to keep track.
The unfolding human rights disaster in Afghanistan is merely one of many catastrophes in the month of August alone.
U.S. Rainbow Flag
It seems Russian President Putin may have a higher moral compass than those running the U.S. today! The U.S. Embassy rainbow flag hanging on a busy street in Moscow represents the Administration’s evil effort to export immorality. Putin is not impressed!
America used to have a testimony of sending out missionaries but now we’re promoting what God hates!
Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday mocked the rainbow flag hung from the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, suggesting it reflected on the orientation of the diplomats.
During a televised video conference, a lawmaker told Putin that the U.S. Embassy had hung a rainbow flag on its façade.
“Who works in this building?” Putin asked the speaker, Senator Alexei Pushkov, answered “the Americans.”
“Let them celebrate. It shows a certain something about the people who work there,” he added with a smile.
Putin signed amendments to the Constitution backed by a national vote that include a clause on marriage being between a man and a woman, aimed at preventing the legalization of gay unions.
He said a law banning the promotion of homosexual relationships to minors, which he signed in 2013 was to prevent the “foisting” of such relationships on children.
“Let a person grow up, become an adult and decide his own path himself. You just shouldn’t impose anything,” Putin insisted.
Biden Helps Make Osama-bin-Laden Prophecy Come True
As ABC News reported in March 2012, bin Laden planned an assassination attempt against former President Barack Obama but banned fellow al-Qaida terrorists from targeting Biden.
In a 45-page letter from May 2010, bin Laden ordered Obama’s assassination because “Obama is the head of infidelity and killing him automatically will make Biden take over the presidency for the remainder of the term, as it is the norm over there.”
“Biden is totally unprepared for that post, which will lead the U.S. into a crisis.”
In other words, the terrorist who orchestrated the murder of 3,000 Americans was hoping our current president would accede to the White House for reasons that are now obvious: namely, Biden’s stubborn idiocy on foreign policy, which has indeed precipitated the Afghanistan nightmare. Even the U.K., our most trusted ally has taken to blasting Biden’s inept global crisis.
Summer Aliyah Figures Are Up!
Aliya is the term used for Jewish people who immigrate to Israel. More and more are making the decision that NOW is the time to go home to Israel. The Lord is going before them and preparing the way. Their dreams are being fulfilled, and obstacles are being overcome. The sons and daughters of Israel are going home in significant numbers.
Operation Exodus USA says, “we are seeing increases during the summer months from the North, the South, and the West. Most weeks during this summer, we witness that flights are departing to Israel from the USA daily.
More than 40 flights are scheduled to depart to Israel from the USA during the summer months, each carrying the Jewish people home to Israel. Many rejoice that soon they will be home in Israel.”
Taking the steps towards making Aliyah is sometimes filled with obstacles the Jewish pilgrims need to overcome, but with their hearts filled with the dream to soon be home, they overcome each obstacle step by step. As one shared recently: “We dream our dreams with eyes wide open.”
Therefore behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord, “that it shall no more be said, ‘The Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of Egypt,’ 15 but, ‘The Lord lives who brought up the children of Israel from the land of the north and from all the lands where He had driven them.’ For I will bring them back into their land which I gave to their fathers.
In our generation, God is daily fulfilling one of the most significant prophesies in Scripture by calling the Jewish people back home to Israel. Pray for Israel and the many organizations who assist the Jewish people.
Biden Helps Make Netanyahu Prophecy Come True
Netanyahu rejected John Kerry’s Afghanistan-style solution for the Palestinians.
Former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu rejected an offer from then-US secretary of state John Kerry to visit Afghanistan as a model for a solution for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Netanyahu wrote on Facebook on Wednesday.
“In 2013,” Netanyahu wrote, Kerry “invited me on a secret visit to Afghanistan to see, in his words, how the US established a local military force that can stand up to terror on its own.”
A senior official in Netanyahu’s government at the time who was privy to the prime minister’s talks with Kerry confirmed Netanyahu’s statement, adding that Kerry had suggested Netanyahu travel to Afghanistan in disguise.
According to Netanyahu, “The message was clear. The ‘Afghanistan model’ was the model the US wanted to implement for Israel to deal with the Palestinians.”
Netanyahu said he politely declined by saying, “We will get the same result as Afghanistan will get if America leaves. We will get the same result in the West Bank if we withdraw from the West Bank.” Netanyahu warned this because he thought at the time that Afghanistan would fall apart once the US left. Bingo!
“That, unfortunately, is what is happening now: An Islamist extremist regime conquered Afghanistan and will turn it into a terror state that will endanger the world,” he wrote. “We will get an identical result if, God forbid, we give parts of our homeland to the Palestinians.
The Palestinians will not establish Singapore, they will establish a terror state in Judea and Samaria, a short distance from Jerusalem and the Ben-Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv.”
Netanyahu also warned that the international community will not protect Israel from the Iranian nuclear threat, and that if not for his vocal opposition to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal and work to persuade US president Donald Trump to leave it, Iran would already have a nuclear weapon.
Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs president Dore Gold, who was Foreign Ministry director-general under Netanyahu, said it is important for Israel to study the US pullout from Afghanistan. The message of the situation in Afghanistan “is that Israel’s doctrine of self-reliance has no replacement,” Gold said.
“Israel understood all along that its defense doctrine cannot be based on foreign forces, but the ability of Israel to defend itself by itself,” he stated. “The idea that Israel could rely on foreign forces was firmly rejected by Israeli prime minister Netanyahu.”
American diplomats had long tried to convince Israel to allow international forces to stop a terrorist threat from the Palestinians, but “Netanyahu was very firm in rejecting this idea,” Gold added.
Gold said that the American retreat from Afghanistan could also lead countries in the Middle East, including Israel, to work together to defend themselves.
Turkey At War Accused of Bombing Medical Workers & anti-ISIS Fighters
Turkey has long harbored ISIS members and backed extremist jihadist groups in northern Syria, where it has used them to ethnically cleanse Kurds, Yazidis and other minorities since 2017.
As the world has been focused on the crisis in Afghanistan, Turkey has been increasing its airstrikes on the Yazidi minorities in northern Iraq and attacking anti-ISIS fighters in eastern Syria. Yes, you heard that right. Turkey has always stood hand and hand with ISIS and protected them at every turn.
Now Ankara appears to be trying to destabilize areas where ISIS was once active and where it committed genocide. That’s because Turkey sees northern Iraq and Syria as belonging to the Ottoman Empire. This includes targeting the Christian community of Tel Tamr in Syria and the Yazidi communities in Iraq near Sinjar.
It is not a coincidence that Turkey has targeted ethnic and religious minorities, but rather part of a long process of attacks on minorities in the country and the region by the Turkish armed forces.
The latest round of attacks began last week and coincided with America and the world’s attention being drawn to Kabul.
Turkey killed four health workers in airstrikes in Sinjar, according to Rudaw. It targeted a health clinic in its attacks, and also claimed to be targeting “terrorists” which is the label it gives to local Yazidi activists aligned with the Sinjar Resistance Units or YBS.
These are members of the Yazidi minority who survived the ISIS genocide of 2014 and formed armed units to fight ISIS and save members of their community. They are akin to Jewish resistance fighters who resisted the Nazis in the forests of Belarus.
The US State Department said that it is “aware of the press reports concerning the Turkish operations in northern Iraq. We reaffirm our view that military action in Iraq should respect Iraqi sovereignty.”
As Turkey was carrying out airstrikes on the health clinic and Yazidis in northern Iraq, it also increased attacks on Kurds in eastern Syria. According to reports, four members of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Force (SDF) were killed in a Turkish bombardment in northeast Syria. The Turkish army “carried out an aerial attack on Tel Tamir’s Military Council base, killing four of our comrades, wounding others and causing material damage to civilian houses,” the SDF said in a statement.
It appears Turkey has been following closely the Taliban’s success in Afghanistan at ousting the US and thinks that it may be able to achieve the same thing in Syria.
SC Gov. McMaster says it’s ‘our duty’ to help Afghanistan’s fleeing Taliban rule and to give them a home in South Carolina
“Those people … helped protect Americans,” McMaster said, answering a reporter’s question whether, like governors in California, Maryland and Virginia, he’d welcome them to South Carolina. “Now it is our duty to help them. We need to help them.”
Afghanistan is now under the control of the Taliban, after the country’s capital of Kabul fell to the Islamic forces over the weekend. Ashraf Ghani, the country’s former president, has since fled and the government has collapsed.
Biden Failed So Badly, Other Countries Are Rescuing Out Own People
There aren’t enough words to describe just how badly Joe Biden fouled up in Afghanistan.
We’ve been in Afghanistan for 20 years and what do we have to show for it?
Well, we’ve wasted nearly $1 trillion…yes, with a “t” on a war that we have officially lost. This is the biggest military disaster since the Vietnam War.
We’ve lost thousands of American lives in this nonsense war.
How about the Taliban? Well, obviously we know how this turned out. You might as well just call Afghanistan “Talibanistan” now. They now have control over more land now than they did when we sent troops inside.
Now Biden is having trouble getting Americans out of Afghanistan. So much so that the French and British militaries are rescuing our own people instead of American forces rescuing them. They are having to put their lives on the line because Biden couldn’t figure out how to get our people out of there!
Pray for America and please pray for Afghanistan which has over 100,000 believers in the underground Church who are now in serious danger with no guarentees or protections!
The Urinals Are
I can’t believe I just typed those words. In the local middle school in Loudoun County northern Virginia, contractors are removing all the urinals from the men’s bathrooms. Why? Because, supposedly, there are too many men without male genitalia who are offended by urinals.
I can’t believe I just typed those last nine words.
And to make matters even worse, the signs on the bathroom doors denoting “male” or “female” will be taken down.
Let’s keep in mind this is a Middle School!
This decision comes in the wake of Loudoun County School Board passing Policy 8040 which states:
“LCPS staff shall allow gender-expansive or transgender students to use their chosen name and gender pronouns that reflect their gender identity without any substantiating evidence, regardless of the name and gender recorded in the student’s permanent educational record…staff or students who intentionally and persistently refuse to respect a student’s gender identity by using the wrong name and gender pronoun are in violation of this policy.”
This policy caused much controversy in Loudoun County. Parents have been arrested, teachers have resigned, protests have occurred, recall petitions have been signed, lawsuits have been filed. The school board has even closed board meetings to the general public and restricted the number of speakers in a vain attempt to limit the outrage.
In the midst of this, let’s remember that we are all made in the image of God – male and female. As God declares it in Genesis 1:27 and 31, “It is indeed good.”
Unfortunately, in the last days of the church-age, some people are just not comfortable being a male or female.
