End of the World Predictions Will Increase in the Next Month

Published

on

December 21, 2012 is around the corner. More than “3,000 books and countless websites claim that the Maya predicted the Earth will be destroyed on this date.” Tonight at 9 p.m. and midnight ET, Fox will be presenting “Countdown to Doomsday: 12.21.2012.”

“The scenarios are truly frightening: The Earth will be destroyed by colliding with an asteroid or being pulled into the black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy. Others claim a galactic planetary alignment that will tear the Earth apart or the Earth’s magnetic poles will shift and our planet will turn upside down.”

The author of the book of Ecclesiastes wrote more than two millennia ago, “There’s nothing new under the sun” (1:9) and “the writing of many books is endless” (12:12), especially when it comes to predictions about the end of the world.
Doomsday prophets are a dime a dozen — from predicting earthquakes, “pole shifts,” flooding from the polar ice cap melting, and general ecological disasters.

“Bob Nelson, also known as Mobius Rex, a California radio talk-show host and author of Prophecy, a compendium of doomsday predictions across the ages, expects that ‘less than one third of the world’s population will be around by 2020.’ He adds, ‘It might be best for this planet and humanity if this civilization collapses as quickly as possible.’” ((Dick Teresi and Judith Hooper, “The Last Laugh?,” Omni (January 1990), 44.))

Edgar Cayce (1877–1945), the “sleeping prophet,” believed that 1998 was the beginning of a New Age — “right after a catastrophic shift of Earth’s axis.” ((Herbert Schlossberg, Idols for Destruction: The Conflict of Christian Faith and American Culture (Wheaton, IL: Crossway Books, [1983], 1993), 44.))
Doom, the Society for Secular Armageddonism, had a phone number that you could call to get the latest information on what they thought were signs of the end. Doom, Inc. cited the following as evidence of an impending “do-it-yourself apocalypse”: “chemical and biological weapons, nuclear proliferation, deforestation, the greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, acid rain, the poisoning of our air and water, rising racism, massive species lost, toxic waste, the AIDS pandemic, the continuing population explosion, encroaching Big Brotherism, and at least a thousand points of blight.”
The following recorded message from Doom, Inc., reproduced in the December 1990 issue of Harper’s Magazine under the title “DIAL-A-BUMMER,” gives you some idea of their view of doomsday:

“You have reached the hot line of Doom for news and information related to the coming apocalypse. This is a service for the organization Doom, the Society for Secular Armageddonism, a nonreligious group dedicated to promoting public awareness of the coming end of the world. We believe the apocalypse is at hand, and the reasons for that belief are overwhelming. . . . These aren’t just conversation topics for yuppie cocktail parties; they’re grade A, unadulterated harbingers of destruction, 100 percent bona fide specters of doom, and they’re all proof that we don’t need God to end it for us. The coming end will be a strictly do-it-yourself apocalypse.” ((Cited in Harper’s Magazine (December 1990), 22.))

By the way, the Society’s phone number was 415-673-3666. It wasn’t toll-free. In case the end did not come as they predicted, the people behind Doom, Inc. didn’t want to be stuck with a large phone bill.
It’s my prediction, based on thousands of past failed predictions, that we will most likely wake up on December 22, 2012 with the world still intact. Of course, I don’t want to be as presumptuous as the prophetic speculators of our era, given what the biblical author of the book of James writes:

“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.’ Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.’ But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil. Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin” (James 4:13–16).

Let’s not be distracted by prophetic speculation about the end of the world that is little more than “striving after wind” (Ecclesiastes 1:14, 17).

Conservative Host Dan Bongino Tells Fans a Tumor Has Been Found in His Neck

Popular conservative commentator and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino has told fans that doctors have found a tumor in his neck.

Published

Popular conservative commentator and former Secret Service Agent Dan Bongino has told fans that doctors have found a tumor in his neck.

The commentator said that doctors are not yet sure if the tumor is cancerous, but there is s “strong likelihood” that it is not.

“It’s a tumor, but there’s a strong likelihood that it is not cancerous,” Bongino on Rumble, a platform he recently bought a stake in as a response to YouTube censorship.

“We don’t know what it is. It’s in a very weird spot in my neck near my carotid artery, near vocal cords and things, and it is big. It’s 7 centimeters … It’s scary,” Bongino continued.

“I noticed when I came out of the MRI machine that the look on the doctor’s face changed a little bit as he told me in the room inside that it is not a lipoma,” Bongino said fighting back tears. “Which was very scary.”

He thanked his wife and doctors but insisted that his show would go on.

“We have two lives,” Bongino said, quoting American novelist Bernard Malamud. “The life we learn with and the life we live after that, and the genuine path to happiness is through suffering.”

Immediately, a long list of high-profile personalities wished the commentator well:

Portland Black Lives Matter Rioters Threaten to Burn Down House Displaying U.S. Flag

Published

on

“Protesters” in Portland threatened to burn down the home of a black Army veteran because he dared to have an American Flag flying outside his home.

Terrance Moses, a black veteran who runs a nonprofit in Portland, said he stepped outside his front door when protesters began carousing down the street in his neighborhood.

“It went from a peaceful march, calling out the names, to all of a sudden, bang, ‘How dare you fly the American flag?’” Moses told the New York Times. “They said take it down. They wouldn’t leave. They said they’re going to come back and burn the house down.”

“We don’t go around terrorizing folks to try and force them to do something they don’t want to do,” he added. “I’m a veteran. I’m for these liberties.”

The couple that displayed the American flag on their Kenton-area home said they were “fearful of retaliation from the roving protesters, who had found their phone number,” according to the Times. Despite that, they are refusing to take down the American flag.

“I will not take my flag down,” he exclaimed.

The paper added that the group of protesters also once again set fires and rioted in the city’s commercial district.

The same night the protesters came to the couple’s door last month, they marched into Kenton’s commercial district and used restaurant picnic tables as fuel for fires. They collected the colorful wooden dividers the neighbors had recently built for outdoor dining and set those ablaze as well. Mr. Moses and others in the community ran into the protests with fire extinguishers.

Protesters that night broke into the Portland Police Association building and set it on fire. A man was later seen scrubbing the sidewalk graffiti — a popular message was “PPB = KKK,” meaning that the Portland Police Bureau is the Ku Klux Klan.

The Black Lives Matter movement is little else but a domestic terror organization.

Democrat Lois Frankel Demanding Big Tech Ban Opponent Laura Loomer’s Ads in Blatant Case of Election Interference

Corruptocrat Rep. Lois Frankel is demanding that big tech ban the ads of election opponent, Laura Loomer, in a clear case of illegal election interference.

Published

Corruptocrat Florida Rep. Lois Frankel is demanding that big tech ban the ads of election opponent, Laura Loomer, in a clear case of illegal election interference.

Frankel and her surrogates are urging Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the rest of the usual Big Tech suspects to ban Loomer’s ads so that she will be less competitive in the race for Congress for the incumbent Democrat in Florida’s 21st District seat.

 

The Loomer campaign struck back at Frankel for calling for censorship and big tech electoral interference.

“Judging from recent public statements, Lois Frankel can’t seem to bring herself to say the name of her opponent, Laura Loomer. According to the Jewish Telegraphic Agency, she either mispronounces Loomer’s name or can’t remember it at all when asked. Frankel, who admits she hasn’t had to run a campaign since she was elected in 2013, is right to be worried about acknowledging her challenger. She knows Laura Loomer is gaining momentum,” Loomer’s chief strategist Karen Giorno said in a press release.

“Spurred into action late last week, Frankel hurriedly sent out a fundraising email. But her selective amnesia about her opponent means she needs help crafting her social media strategy. Mostly, she leans on friends, such as former Obama and Kamala Harris advisor Halie Soifer, who produce pot shots she can simply retweet. It’s no surprise that Lazy Lois is outsourcing her campaign like this. After all, she hasn’t shown up to Congress in months,” Giorno added.

“Frankel should be ashamed,” Giorno said. “We’ve come to expect indifference, snobbery and indolence from this Congresswoman. But even we are amazed to see her endorsing an unambiguous appeal for suppression, especially when she knows that her challenger is the most banned woman in the world already. More to the point, Loomer is also her legitimate opponent, a constituent in Frankel’s district and a citizen of the United States.”

Giorno added that if Frankel is so willing to use her big tech allies to shut down Loomer’s free speech, what will she do to the average American whose views she wants shut down?

“By openly advocating for her political opponent’s voice to be suppressed, Lois Frankel is revealing her contempt and apathy for the rights of voters who overwhelmingly selected Loomer as their candidate during the Republican primary,” Giorno continued.

“Frankel tweeted passionately in November 2019 about the Iranian government’s heavy-handed approach to internet censorship, calling it a ‘human rights violation.’ Apparently, she doesn’t extend the same courtesy to her own constituents,” Giorno wrote.

“This flagrant hypocrisy speaks volumes about the beliefs and attitudes of today’s elitist Democrat Party. Frankel’s indifference to the First Amendment rights of her own constituents is baffling, offensive and profoundly un-American. Palm Beach County voters are watching carefully, and they are not impressed,” Giorno concluded.

Here is one of Loomer’s latest ads:

Rochester Officers Forced To Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Etc.

Rochester Officers Forced To Cover Names After Protesters Shout Their Addresses, Kids’ Names, Etc.

Rochester police officers have been forced to hide their identities to protect their families as protesters have begun doxxing them.

“The past couple of months officers’ names have been researched by protesters to put personal information out to the public, putting the safety of their families in jeopardy,” said a statement from RPD Chief La’Ron Singletary, who announced his resignation earlier this week.

“Officers have been allowed to remove their name tags in an effort to prevent their personal information from being spread on social media,” Singletary added.

TDW:

Rochester Police Department (RPD) officers have been given permission to cover up their names displayed on their tags to avoid harassment from left-wing protesters, who are screaming out their home addresses, kids’ names and schools, and making taunting calls to their parents in front of them. They are also spreading personal information about the cops via social media.

[…]

Local radio show host and journalist Bob Lonsberry posted via Twitter on Thursday: “Peaceful protesters have stood outside the [Rochester] Public Safety Building, read an officer’s name off his uniform, tracked him down on their phones, and called his parents to taunt them. Or held up the phone to show the officer his home address and threaten to come after him there.”

Singletary had his statement read by City Council Chief of Staff Robert Scanlon during a briefing with Democrat Mayor Lovely Warren and city council members on Wednesday. The police chief did not attend the meeting in person. More

‘Peaceful’ protesters who threaten officers or their families are criminals and need to be put in cages. Until society decides enough is enough these thugs will continue terrorizing innocent citizens.

Doxxing should be a crime and when it involves innocent family members there should be a stiff sentence. In the meantime arrest the rioters and find out who is funding them and put them away for a very long time.

Watch Angry Knife-Wielding BLM Mob Chase TV Reporter

A reporter and a security guard were chased away by an angry mob of BLM protesters, including one who appeared to be wielding a knife in Rochester.

“Yo, I’m about to kill ‘em, brah,” one man says on the footage as the reporter and the guard run away.

NY Post:

A news reporter and a security guard in Rochester were chased away by an angry mob of Daniel Prude protesters, including one who appeared to be wielding a knife, dramatic video shows.

The footage from Sunday’s protests in Rochester shows WHEC reporter Charles Molineaux and a security guard being told to get away by demonstrators marching toward the city’s Public Safety Building.

Protests erupted in the upstate New York city last week following the release of police bodycam footage from March showing cops pressing Prude’s face into the ground until he stopped breathing. Prude, who was black, later died.

“Go home, go home, go home!” the crowd chanted as Molineaux and the guard were confronted in a nearby parking lot, video shows. One protester is seen waving a Black Lives Matter flag.

“Just leave, go that way!” one man tells them. “Go out the parking lot!”

“Get the f–k up out of here!” another man yells.

Molineaux then pulls out his cellphone and snaps a photo, which he later posted on Twitter, before the guard motions that the pair need to leave the area immediately.

They then start walking briskly away from the protesters before two men, including one who appears to be armed with a knife, make threatening motions toward them, the clip shows. More

Not everyone agrees Sunday night’s demonstration at the Public Safety Building was peaceful.

Food Lion Tells Veteran To Remove His American Flag Mask

Food Lion Tells Veteran To Remove His American Flag Mask

An Air Force veteran quit his job at a North Carolina Food Lion after he was told that he could not wear his American flag face mask. “Someone complained about me wearing the flag mask,” Gary Dean told The Todd Starnes Radio Show.

“The manager came up to me and said, ‘I’m embarrassed to even tell you this, but someone came up and said you can’t wear it,’” Mr. Dean said.

WCTI:

A now-former employee of an area supermarket says he quit his job this week after being told he could not wear a face covering depicting the American flag while at work.

Gary Dean says he left his job at the Food Lion in Havelock and is shocked the American flag would be offensive to anyone, especially in a military town.

The 69-year-old’s home is full of patriotic paraphernalia, and Dean, who once anchored at NewsChannel 12, is a veteran himself.

“1970-1976,” Dean said of the years he served in the United States Air Force. “Four of those were active, two of those were inactive reserve.”

He showed NewsChannel 12 a photo album of memories and says memories of his service are an emotional subject.

[…]

It was that anger, Dean says, that caused him to quit his job at the Food Lion’s Havelock location Tuesday. Dean says a manager approached him that afternoon, telling him he could no longer wear his face covering with the American flag printed on it. More

Thank you for your service, sacrifice, and for standing up for your principles, Mr. Dean. It is sad and disturbing that we live in the USA and we can’t freely wear our flag without fear of “offending” a snowflake. It’s not a message or an organization, it’s a flag. A flag that he risked his life and fought for.
