End Times Prophecy Report
January 17, 2018
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
PHILIPPINES: In The Philippines, Facebook Is a Weapon
1020 days until Election Day 2020 – Will it happen?
“Most people want security in this world, not liberty.”
–H. L. Mencken
“Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.”
–The Who, Won’t get fooled again
This Town Is Proof That Trump’s Wall Can Work – Donald Trump has been in power for a few days shy of a year–and his infamous wall is no closer to being built than if Hillary Clinton had been elected.
Although he–and the rubbery, complicit media–does talk a good game.
“Meet the new boss…same as the old boss.”
–The Who, Won’t get fooled again
“People who are wise, good, smart, skillful, or hardworking don’t need politics, they have jobs.”
“But actually, he thought as he readjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connection with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connection that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version. A great deal of time you were expected to make them up out of your head.”
–On changing government statistics – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
Do you believe the media? Then why do you believe their lying polls?
“But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.”
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
–1 Corinthians 15:1-8
“For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”
-—1 Corinthians 1:18-19
Parents arrested after children are found shackled and malnourished in Perris California – Another in a long, long line of “Parents can not be trusted with their own kids” stories.
Nine charged for giving food to homeless in California – Increasingly, any help to one’s fellow man–particularly, the “unfortunates“–will be criminalized.
Especially in the USA.
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”
–Franklin D. Roosevelt
After Eliza Dushku’s Allegations, Two Other Women Accuse Stunt Coordinator Joel Kramer of Misconduct – The media continues to flog the #MeToo stories.
‘We have a responsibility’: CVS vows to stop altering beauty images in its stores, ads – Many narratives use more than words to tell their stories.
NFL ratings crash for the divisional playoff round – Ratings are like polls: numbers to be used to support whatever story is being told. The story now being told is how Americans suddenly have quenched their previously nearly-insatiable hunger for American football.
The story tellers would have readers believe the fable that barely-noticed protests by some marginal players are responsible for the media’s change of tune.
However, lifelong habits of fans usually take a bit to change.
American football aficionados have until it is time for the next phase of the American experience to unlearn this particular habit of leisure.
ALL things distinctly American will then have to go before the change in management.
Trial set to begin in ex-NFL player’s road-rage killing – When the late night comics began doing all of their “NFL-players-are-criminals” jokes a few years back, the question then was “Where is it heading“?
PSYCHOLOGY AND OTHER PSEUDO-SCIENCE
Science is truly little more than a collection of stories.
The psychological reasons “Billy Jean” kills at Weddings – Psychology itself is one big narrative.
One of the greatest success stories of the 20th century for the mystery of iniquity was the creation and promotion of the “narrative sciences;” i.e., psychology, psychiatry, sociology, etc.
All of them are long on narratives and short on repeatable, observable data.
Which makes them the perfect “sciences” for the end times.
Minimum wage hikes sending restaurants the way of the shopping malls? – Restaurants have been with mankind for thousands of years.
Pretty much only in the USA and pretty much only after 1945.
Lincoln’s Legacy at 200 – Lincoln has had an intense make-over by the historians/propaganda merchants of the USA.
Why is Megyn Kelly not going to the ‘Winter Olympics? Embarrassment as it’s revealed $23m-a-year host will NOT travel to South Korea with the rest of NBC’s top team and ‘nobody knows why’ -Megyn Kelly is neither better nor worse than she ever was.
She is a great example of the adage “The media gives, the media takes away.”
Kelly rose through the ranks thanks to constant media promotion and care.
She is now descending due to the same reason.
“We become slaves the moment we hand the keys to the definition of reality entirely over to someone else, whether it is a business, an economic theory, a political party, the White House, Newsworld or CNN.”

MANY TIMES, THE MEDIA JUSTIFIES CRIME
Sent in by a reader – Why are 34,000 people being forced to wear orange crocs? The article answers the headline’s question.
“Every year, 2 billion of your tax dollars are spent holding those undocumented immigrants and illegal border crossers, many for no reason other than their undocumented status.”
Essentially, these people not only broke the law, they traveled across the border to break it.
BUT the article attempts to justify this by pointing out:
“We’re not talking about murderers here.”
Though in some cases, we ARE “talking about murderers here”.
The end times are not only a time of lawlessness, they are a time of lawlessness which attempts to justify itself.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
ONE, TWO YEARS AGO
WORD OF FILTH PREACHERS
Word of Faith Heresies – Word of faith TV preachers are not even Christians.
In fact, they’re not even particularly clever counterfeits.
IF the wicked and lost can see through Kenneth Copeland, Paula White and company, real believers would have no trouble identifying them for what they really are.
Which is one way to spot counterfeits: they listen to these wolves in sheep’s clothing and try to defend their heresies.
Example: “Adam was not subordinate to God.”
–Kenneth Copeland, Following the Faith of Abraham, Tape #01-3001
“Christians are little gods.”
–Benny Hinn, Praise-a-thon (TBN), recorded November 1990;
also: Our position in Christ, Tape #AO31190-1
Word of faith is actually the word of filth.
Are Aliens Plentiful, But We’re Just Missing Them? – Sure, that’s the ticket.
Obama to Democrats: I’ll act with or without Congress – Oh you know the narrative-writers loved this one!
Because they really enjoy writing Obama articles which make particular readers angry. This was written to make certain readers scared and angry–that’s a two-fer. When Bush II was in office, they wrote the same type of articles–only then, it was to make “liberals” angry.
The idea is for part of the country to really hate the president. Then, whenever that president steps down, the part of the country that hates the old guy will be so thankful and happy that someone—anyone–new is coming into office they give the new guy a “pass” for a good while.
This is an old Corporate Media trick, but this writer began noticing it during the Bush I administration. When Bill Clinton took over, there were so many people who were just happy that Bush I was gone; that Clinton wasn’t Bush. By the time the Clinton’s left office, Americans were ready for someone new: Bush II was given a huge honeymoon period. Conservatives KNEW that Bush II would restore the “dignity” back to the presidency after eight years of Bill and Hillary Clinton’s criminal shenanigans.
So what if liberals knew Bill Clinton wasn’t really a liberal? So what if his policies were suspiciously like H.G.W. Bush?
At least he wasn’t Bush! He’s one of us!
Conservatives seethed for eight years because they “knew” that Clinton wasn’t even a legitimate president. Ross Perot–the billionaire who was just an ordinary guy–ran twice and Clinton never even got 50% of the vote in either election.
Clinton was illegitimate.
The Corporate Media then enjoyed eight years of writing Dubya and Evil Dick Cheney stories that made “liberals” foam at the mouth. The Yale graduate Bush II particularly enjoyed mispronouncing words, especially “nuclear.” That convinced liberals he was a moron.
So what if conservatives knew Bush II wasn’t really a conservative? So what if his policies were suspiciously like Clinton’s?
At least he wasn’t Clinton! He’s one of us!
Liberals stewed for eight years because they “knew” that Bush wasn’t even a legitimate president. He stole the election–both times. The first time in Florida, the second time in Ohio.
Bush II was illegitimate.
Now America is enduring the Obama period. And the Corporate Media never missed a beat manipulating readers. The Obamas enjoy doing the things that infuriate “conservative” Americans. Taking long, expensive vacations or playing golf when the country seems to on its way to perdition. The media enjoys writing articles about Obama riding a bike like a girl, bowing to foreign dignitaries and dropping hints that this president is an undercover Muslim.
So what if Obama is not really a liberal? What if he continued many of the hated policies of Bush II?
At least he isn’t Bush II! He’s one of us!
Conservatives fumed for eight years because they “know” that Obama isn’t even a legitimate president. He isn’t even eligible to be president. Obama is a foreigner.
Obama was illegitimate.
However, a very little-noticed fact of the 2008 election: neither candidate was constitutionally eligible. Neither was born in the USA.
And now, it is 2018 and our president is Donald Trump.
And–surprise!–according to the same Corporate Media:
Trump is illegitimate.
And the beat goes on…
Dow crosses 26,000 for first time – Wheeee! Good times are surely here now!
U.S. to Leapfrog Russia in 2018 as Top Oil Producer – This same headline appeared a few years ago.
…and now, it is back.
HISTORY AND OTHER TALL TALES
20 thoughts about history, largely from those who either made it or wrote it.
“History is merely gossip.”
“Historians are gossips who tease the dead.”
–Voltaire, Scribbling Books
“Historian: A broad-gauge gossip.”
“History: gossip well told.”
–Elbert Hubbard, The Roycroft Dictionary
“History is a set of lies agreed upon.”
“History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren’t there.”
“History: An account mostly false, of events mostly unimportant, which are brought about by rulers mostly knaves, and soldiers mostly fools.”
“History will be kind to me for I intend to write it.”
“History is more or less bunk.”
“History supplies little beyond a list of those who have accommodated themselves with the property of others.”
“Perhaps nobody has changed the course of history as much as the historians.”
–Franklin P. Jones
“History is written by the victors.”
“History is the propaganda of the victors.”
— Louis de Bernières
“Chief among the spoils of victory is the privilege of writing the history.”
“Most history is guessing, and the rest is prejudice.”
–Will & Ariel Durant, Our Oriental Heritage
“The past is really almost as much a work of the imagination as the future.”
“History isn’t what happened, but a story of what happened.”
—History is a Weapon
“He who controls the past controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
–George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed—if all records told the same tale—then the lie passed into history and became truth. ‘Who controls the past’ ran the Party slogan, ‘controls the future: who controls the present controls the past.”
–George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four
“More history is made by secret handshakes than by battles, bills, and proclamations.”
Duck and Cover – Time to dust off those ’60s nuclear bomb drills?
Global carmakers to invest at least $90 billion in electric vehicles – And what if there is no electricity available?
MORE: Auto Ban
Driverless cars: all you need to know about self-driving cars – And what if various “needs” to make the supposedly self-driving car schemes are not available?
MORE: Farewell to Cars
“When every inconvenience is promoted as a catastrophe, a catastrophe will appear to be an extinction level event.”
More Than 100 Now Dead As Worst Flu Epidemic In Years Sweeps Across US – The “flu epidemic” is as bad as the media can make it.
“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.”
IF it is hot, it is claimed to be “climate change.”
IF it is cold, it is claimed to be “climate change.”
IF it is dry, it is claimed to be “climate change.”
IF it is wet, it is claimed to be “climate change.”
“Heads I win, tails you lose.”
“I’m old enough to remember when the air over American cities was a lot dirtier than it is now.”
–P. J. O’Rourke
…and now that it’s cleaner and more clear, the elite spin their fables, trying to create fear over “climate change.”
MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT
“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)? One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article. When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master. “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events. Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do. ALL political “news” is narrative.
“American journalism (like the journalism of any other country) is predominantly paltry and worthless. Its pretensions are enormous, but its achievements are insignificant.”
― H.L. Mencken
“Things are never quite what they seem. Events are seldom close to how the media and history portray them.”
“It is a free press…There are laws to protect the freedom of the press’s speech, but none that are worth anything to protect the people from the press.”
–Mark Twain, speech: License of the Press
“Journalists” are story-tellers. Nothing more, nothing less. Sometimes, there is an element of truth in their stories, but truth is not a requirement of what they do.
“Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.”
–Adolf Hitler, Propaganda, the Big Lie and Adolf Hitler: 20 Hitler Quotes on Propaganda
