War and Rumors of War – A State of the Union

As the red horse moves around the chess board, the nuclear nations are talking a lot of trash. Their highest ranking political and military officials aren’t worried about the outcome for they have sheltered caves with stores awaiting the inevitable, and are sure that they won’t have to suffer the consequences of their own actions while the masses are left in fear. An all our war and potential nuclear war will compound all current situations beyond beginning of sorrows and escalate into great tribulation.

Russian senator said last week that it’s time for Russian forces to strike U.S. bases throughout Europe as punishment for sending advanced weapons systems to Ukraine to fight off Russian invaders.

In an interview with a Russian state television channel last week, Russian Senator Frants Klintsevich said Russia should be “taking into consideration” it’s high-precision long-range weapons and said “it’s time to wreck American bases” in Europe.

“Unfortunately they view our tolerance and integrity as a weakness,” the Russian senator said. “And now the place where the arms shipments are arriving, in particular in Europe — taking into consideration Russia’s high-precision long-range weaponry, it’s about time we took steps to warn them.”

A Chinese state-run media outlet published an article this week in which select “experts” called for countries around the world to sue the U.S. for gun crimes and racial unrest that they say is causing terrorism around the world.

On Wednesday, China’s state-run Global Times tabloid cited unnamed “analysts” who said the U.S. should be treated as the “biggest producer of the terrorism” in the world. They further encourage victims around the world to sue the U.S. government through any relevant international legal institutions.

Throughout the article, the Global Times cited unnamed “analysts” and Lü Xiang — a researcher on the U.S. at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences — who argued a link between gun crimes and race-related conflict in the U.S. and violence and war around the world.

“Analysts said the U.S. government who fails to protect its own people from gun shootings and spreads chaos worldwide is the ‘biggest producer of the terrorism,’ whether within or outside the U.S.,” the Global Times article reads.

One of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s top advisors warned that the Kremlin will target western “decision-making centers” if Ukraine uses U.S.-supplied rockets to strike Russia, adding a chilling warning that the “horsemen of the apocalypse” are already on their way.

“If, God forbid, these weapons are used against Russian territory then our armed forces will have no other choice but to strike decision-making centers,” Dmitry Medvedev, deputy chairman of Russia’s national security council, told Al Jazeera, as reported by Metro.  

“Of course, it needs to be understood that the final decision-making centers in this case, unfortunately, are not located on the territory of Kyiv,” he added.

Medvedev also issued a grim warning that the conflict is pushing the world toward nuclear Armageddon.

The U.S. and South Korea together fired eight surface-to-surface missiles early Monday local time (Sunday afternoon in the U.S.) hours after North Korea fired a barrage of short-range ballistic missiles, a South Korean defense official told Reuters.

The U.S.-South Korean barrage took place over a 10-minute period at 4:45 a.m. local time Monday (3:45 p.m. Sunday EST). Eight Army Tactical Missile Systems (ATACMS) were fired from a U.S. aircraft carrier, a South Korean official confirmed to Reuters.

The eight-missile barrage was in response to eight missiles fired by North Korea earlier Sunday. In what appears to be North Korea’s largest single missile test, North Korea’s eight short-range missiles launched toward the East Sea from Sunan near the capital Pyongyang. The missiles traveled 110-670 kilometers at a 25-90 kilometer altitude, achieving Mach 3-6 speeds, South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff said, as reported by Yonhap News.

North Korea’s missiles are believed to have included the KN-23 missile — based on Russia’s Iskander ballistic missile – which features a “pull-up maneuver” that can dodge interception, Yonhap News reported.

China is studying the use of high-speed railways equipped with missile launchers to move intercontinental ballistic missiles around the country and, according to one military researcher, the rail system could be used to move up to 1,000 nuclear warheads within range of targets in the U.S. and Europe.

Rick Fischer, a Chinese military researcher at the Global Taiwan Institute, told The Sun this week that such a high-speed rail system could allow China to house and support an additional 1,000 warheads, it can move to different parts of the country, to put the weapons within striking range of targets either in Europe or the U.S.

“It’s not inconceivable that China’s rail system could support 1,000 additional warheads capable of reaching European and American targets,” Fischer said.

The U.S. State Department quietly reinstated language opposing Taiwan’s independence in a policy document late last month after having removed it three weeks earlier.

In a U.S.-Taiwan relations fact sheet updated May 28, the department reinstated the line “we do not support Taiwan independence.” The line had appeared in a prior version of the document dated Aug. 31, 2018, but was removed in a May 5, 2022 update.

A State Department spokesperson told Reuters that the update was made to reflect the language used by Secretary of State Antony Blinken two days earlier in a speech outlining the U.S. strategy on China.

The fact sheet indeed contains the exact language Blinken used in his speech: “We oppose any unilateral changes to the status quo from either side; we do not support Taiwan independence; and we expect cross-strait differences to be resolved by peaceful means.”

Blinken added in his May 26 speech that the U.S. approach to China “has been consistent across decades and administrations” and was unchanged from its commitment to the “One China” policy.

China was angered by the State Department’s removal of the line opposing Taiwan independence. In a May 10 press conference, China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Zhao Lijian accused the U.S. of “political manipulation” and attempting to “change the status quo” by deleting the line, which it described as “a trick to obscure and hollow out the one-China principle.”

Days before Blinken’s speech and the updated fact sheet, President Joe Biden had told reporters that the U.S. would be willing to defend Taiwan against a Chinese invasion.

When asked on May 23 if the U.S. would be “willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that,” Biden replied, “Yes, that’s the commitment we made.”

A top Biden administration official warned of a “swift and forceful response” against North Korea if the nation conducts a nuclear weapon test.

U.S. Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman spoke with officials in South Korea and Japan about such a counter-response if the North moves forward with a nuclear test for the first time in almost five years, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

“Any nuclear test would be in complete violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions. There would be a swift and forceful response to such a test,” Sherman said following a meeting with South Korean Vice Foreign Minister Cho Hyun-dong. “We continue to urge Pyongyang to cease its destabilizing and provocative activities and choose the path of diplomacy.”

In addition to verbal warnings, the U.S. sent four F-16 fighter jets to fly alongside 16 South Korean aircraft in the airspace just off South Korea’s eastern coast. The military exercise was meant to deter North Korea from proceeding with a nuclear test, and demonstrate an ability to swiftly respond to any aggression from the North, according to South Korea’s Joint Chiefs of Staff.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security issued a nationwide terrorism threat advisory on Tuesday after a series of mass shooting incidents and the leak of a draft Supreme Court decision on abortion. The terror advisory also raises concerns about continued unrest in the lead-up to the 2022 midterm elections.

“In the coming months, we expect the threat environment to become more dynamic as several high-profile events could be exploited to justify acts of violence against a range of possible targets,” the DHS said in a Tuesday statement. “These targets could include public gatherings, faith-based institutions, schools, racial and religious minorities, government facilities and personnel, U.S. critical infrastructure, the media, and perceived ideological opponents.”

“Threat actors have recently mobilized to violence due to factors such as personal grievances, reactions to current events, and adherence to violent extremist ideologies, including racially or ethnically motivated or anti-government/anti-authority violent extremism,” the advisory added. “Foreign adversaries—including terrorist organizations and nation state adversaries—also remain intent on exploiting the threat environment to promote or inspire violence, sow discord, or undermine U.S. democratic institutions.”

The ground invasion continues and the largest wave is on its way.

From the 6/6 article: https://traffic.americanmilitarynews.com/2022/06/possible-largest-ever-caravan-of-15000-migrants-headed-to-us/?utm_source=fbchat&utm_campaign=alt&utm_medium=facebook?

About 10,000 people have already joined onto a migrant caravan on its way through Mexico and thousands more people could still join in what may become the largest migrant caravan to march to the U.S. southern border.

On Monday, Fox News reported the migrant caravan set out from the city of Tapachula, on Mexico’s southern border with Guatemala, heading north towards the U.S.

The caravan is expected to grow to about 15,000 people on its way north, which would make it the largest migrant caravan to reach the U.S. southern border.

The migrants in the caravan primarily consist of people from Venezuela, Cuba and Nicaragua, though the Guardian reports the caravan also consists of people from Haiti, El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and even people from India, Bangladesh, and some African countries. The caravan is expected to travel along what is known as the coastal route to reach the U.S. southern border.

Luis Villagran, the caravan’s organizer and director of the non-profit Center for Human Dignification, told Fox News that there were around 9,500 people in the caravan on Monday, but more people are continuing to join. He said the caravan currently stretches more than 51 kilometers (about 32 miles) from beginning to end.

Could it get any worse? Has the Biden effect been the plan all along? From the article below: At Just the News, Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, on the John Solomon Reports podcast cited Biden’s threat to withhold school lunch funding from schools that don’t follow his LGBT agenda.

“It makes no sense. That tells you this is intentional.”

All one has to do is go back to 2020 during the primary race when Obama was quoted as saying, “Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to f**k things up.”

Matthew 24:4-39

KJV(i) 4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. 10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. 11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. 12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. 15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) 16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: 17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: 18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. 19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! 20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. 22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened. 23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. 24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. 25 Behold, I have told you before. 26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. 27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: 33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. 34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. 35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. 37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

Zechariah 13:7-9

KJV(i) 7 Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man that is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones. 8 And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein. 9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

Isaiah 42

KJV(i) 1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles. 2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law. 5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; 7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house. 8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. 9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them. 10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants thereof. 11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains. 12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands. 13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies. 14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once. 15 I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools. 16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them. 17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods. 18 Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see. 19 Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’s servant? 20 Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not. 21 The LORD is well pleased for his righteousness’ sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable. 22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore. 23 Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come? 24 Who gave Jacob for a spoil, and Israel to the robbers? did not the LORD, he against whom we have sinned? for they would not walk in his ways, neither were they obedient unto his law. 25 Therefore he hath poured upon him the fury of his anger, and the strength of battle: and it hath set him on fire round about, yet he knew not; and it burned him, yet he laid it not to heart.
