to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices
God is well pleased.”
Greetings! We haven't been able to do our regular weekly introductions for the past few weeks due to our involvement in the documentary “The Coming Temple” (working title).
As you may know we recently spent one month in Israel shooting a documentary in our pursuit of proving that Solomon's and Herod’s Temples were not located in the popularly believed area. They were not where the Dome of the Rock is now located but approximately eight hundred feet south over what is known as the Ophel and where the Gihon Spring is located.
We have done different papers, which have been published on this website, which we believe prove this point to be true with irrefutable evidence.
While in Israel we were able to film all the locations mentioned in the papers to which we are referring.
We knew it was going to be difficult, but it turned out to be quite a lot more difficult than we expected. As a matter of fact we have not experienced such difficulties since we lived in India.
Jerusalem is not the City of Peace that many envision, but we found it to be a noisy, over crowded, polluted chaotic cacophony with a dark oppressive spirit that pervades the lives and surroundings of those who live there.
It is more akin to Revelation 11:8 Jerusalem “the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”
While there we were able to interview several people, amongst them Don Esposito, who is considered one of the worlds top authorities on the true location of Solomon's and Herod’s Temples.
Then, last weekend, we traveled to Colorado Springs in the US to interview David Sielaff, Bob Cornuke and Paul McGuire who were all giving presentations at the “Pikes Peak Prophecy Summit”.
David Sielaff is pretty much acknowledged by everyone doing research on Solomon's and Herod’s Temple as the most knowledgeable person in the world on the true location.
David took over from Dr. Ernest Martin who wrote the book “The Temples That Jerusalem Forgot” which is considered the bedrock work on which all other works are based.
As mentioned we were also able to interview Bob Cornuke concerning his recent book “Temple” which has taken much of the Christian prophetic world by storm.
As an added bonus Paul McGuire agreed to an interview on the spot giving his testimony and answering questions concerning the “Keys to the Kingdom”.
We were given the use of a beautiful conference room at the summit by the organizers of the conference where we did all the videos and interviews.
All the material in now in Uganda where it is being edited and we hope it will be available in September.
A special thank you to all who are making this possible.
We have no illusions that we are up against some very formidable opposition and are trusting God to get the message out as He sees fit.
The video is a not for profit enterprise and will be posted on several web sites.
Below is part of a paper we have previously posted showing just why the correct locations of the Temples are important.
If you have any questions or do not fully understand it all we would suggest you read “The Coming Temple” and “Children Of Disobedience” also available on this site as it may clarify things more.
God bless you and have a great week ahead.
The following is a rough draft.
1. Points to consider.
A. The original Temples were not over the Dome of the Rock but several hundred feet south. The evidence is overwhelming and should be self evident
B. Modern Rabbinic Judaism that exists today is the same as Pharisee-ism (Children of Disobedience)
C. Satan wants his antichrist to be worshiped as God and rule the world from the coming rebuilt Jewish temple. ( Children of Disobedience)
D. Jesus was tried and sentenced to death on the rock in Fort Antonia which today is under the Dome of the Rock. ( Children of Disobedience)
When Pilate therefore heard that saying, he brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat in a place that is called the Pavement, but in the Hebrew, Gabbatha. John 19:13 “Gabbatha” is translated as “the high place”.
“Gabbatha (Aramaic גבתא) is the Aramaic name of a place in Jerusalem, that is also referred to by the Greek name of Lithostrōtos (Greek λιθόστρωτος). It occurs only once in the Bible, in John 19:13.
The Gospel of John states that Pontius Pilate:
"brought Jesus forth, and sat down in the judgment seat, in the place that is called Lithostrotos, and in Hebrew Gabbatha."
The name "Gabbatha" is certainly an Aramaic word, for by "Hebrew" St. John, like other New Testament writers, denotes the Aramaic language which was spoken commonly at the time in Judea. It is not a mere translation of "Lithostrotos", which properly means the tessellated or mosaic pavement where the judgment-seat stood, but which was extended to the place itself in front of Pilate's praetorium, where that pavement was laid. This was proved by the practice of St. John, who elsewhere gives Aramaic names as distinctly belonging to places, not as mere translations of the Greek. This is proved also by the fact that "Gabbatha" is derived from a root (meaning "back", or "elevation"), which refers, not to the kind of pavement, but to the "elevation" of the place in question. It thus appears that the two names "Lithostrotos" and "Gabbatha" were due to different characteristics of the spot where Pilate condemned Jesus to death. The Aramaic name was derived from the configuration of that spot, the Greek name from the nature of its pavement. Efforts have been made by commentators to identify "Gabbatha" either with the outer court of the Temple, which is known to have been paved, or with the meeting-place of the Great Sanhedrin, which was half within, half without that Temple's outer court, or again with the ridge at the back of the House of the Lord; but these efforts cannot be considered as successful. The only inference that can be gathered with certainty from St. John's statement (xix, 13) is that "Gabbatha" denotes the usual place in Jerusalem, where Pilate had his judicial seat, and whither he caused Jesus to be brought forth, that he might deliver, and in that of the Jewish multitude, his formal and final sentence of death by crucifixion.” Wikipedia
Again we have to look at and remember this is a spiritual not physical warfare, although it is often manifested in the physical. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” Ephesians 6:12
Is it possible that Satan in his extreme insanity and rebellion against God wants to have the antichrist rule as God over the very place he had Jesus condemned to death as a final insult. And does he intend to have the same people Rabbinical Judaism/Pharisee- ism have that Temple built over that “Rock”?
2. Points to consider pt.2
Why when the truth is so evident is it rejected by those to whom it would seem to most benefit?
I suspect the reason they reject the Temple being over the Gihon Spring could be a possibility and combination of three or more reasons.
1. For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. Romans 11:25
For the Lord hath poured out upon you the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and your rulers, the seers hath he covered. Isaiah 29:10
2. Centuries of tradition. Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. Mark 7:13
3. Deceit. We believe some must know and understand the verses out of Jeremiah and their
meaning and have chosen the Harem Al-Sharif because of the cisterns, there are thirty seven of them, that collect fresh water.
a. Let's discuss this idea of deceit. If modern Rabbinical Judaism is the same as Pharisee-ism, which it certainly does seem to be. Except for the rare exception of people like Saul who became Paul and Nicodemus the vast majority of the Pharisees were Jesus' greatest enemies and the ones behind the instigation of His crucifixion. (Even Paul was a great persecutor of the early followers of Jesus until his dramatic conversion.)
If the modern day Pharisees can convince their own followers and others that the western wall of Ft. Antonia is the western wall of the former Temple this would make Jesus appear to be a false prophet.
Jesus said in Matthew 24:1-2 “And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.”
And again in Mark 13:1-2 “ And as he went out of the temple, one of his disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of stones and what buildings are here! And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.“
And in Luke 21:5-6 “ And as some spake of the temple, how it was adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
As for these things which ye behold, the days will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.“
If the Pharisees can especially convince the Jews, Jesus is a false prophet Luke 11:52 would help to explain the results of this deception. “Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered.”
It is identical to what happened two thousand years ago. For those who accepted Jesus as the Messiah they would have accepted His teaching in the Gospels. One that is a key teaching is “Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” Matthew 22:37-38
“And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias.
And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” Luke 4:17-21 (Isaiah 61:1-2
Jesus set the Jews free (and all of us) from all the traditions, laws, so called oral commandments (the Talmud) etc. making the positions of the Pharisees/Rabbinical-Talmud ism in effect redundant. If they were no longer needed they would lose control over the soul of the Jewish nation.
This could not be allowed then and they do not want to allow it now. So “keep the western wall of Ft. Antonia the west wall of the Temple”.
This is what the truth is up against. It will take a miracle of God.
Also having a common enemy, the Arabs of the Harem, which Israel desperately needs, helps to solidify a very fragmented society into a cohesive unit to help carry out the plans of the rulers.
“Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me. When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked [man] shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand. Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.” Ezekiel 3:17-19
“For this they willingly are ignorant.” 2 Peter 3:5
Vladimir Putin: The New World Order Worships Satan (Edited from much longer article.)
By Jonas E. Alexis on August 5, 2015
Kevin Barrett: "It is worth noting that Russia and Iran – the two nations most successfully resisting NWO regime change – are doing so in the name of God…. Putin’s reference to Satanism was a pointed rebuke to the New World Order elites, who – though they push militant secularism on the societies they are trying to undermine – are closet Satanists."
“So, you want to worship Satan? By all means, but leave Russia out of it. Rest assured that I will be your worst nightmare. You can quote me on that.”
…by Jonas E. Alexis
During the Cold War, the United States and much of the West argued that the Soviet Union was a “godless nation.” Last year, Vladimir Putin took that pendulum, swung it on the other direction, and landed it on the Zionist regime. As Patrick Buchanan put it then, “In the new war of beliefs, Putin is saying, it is Russia that is on God’s side. The West is Gomorrah.” Putin said:
“Many Euro-Atlantic countries have moved away from their roots, including Christian values. Policies are being pursued that place on the same level a multi-child family and a same-sex partnership, a faith in God and a belief in Satan. This is the path to degradation.”
The Washington Times reported then:
“In his state of the nation address, Mr. Putin also portrayed Russia as a staunch defender of ‘traditional values’ against what he depicted as the morally bankrupt West. Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into ‘chaotic darkness.’
“As part of this defense of ‘Christian values,’ Russia has adopted a law banning “homosexual propaganda” and another that makes it a criminal offense to ‘insult’ the religious sensibilities of believers…
“Although Mr. Putin has never made a secret of what he says is his deep Christian faith, his first decade in power was largely free of overtly religious rhetoric. Little or no attempt was made to impose a set of values on Russians or lecture to the West on morals.”
Certainly Putin put the moral equation back on the table. Kevin Barrett declared that Putin here was trying to “put the fear of God in the New World Order.” Barrett moved on to make the forceful argument that much of the Zionist establishment in the West is afraid of Putin because the establishment leaves in fear. “Russian President Putin is resisting,” said Barrett. “That is why the Western propaganda machine is calling him names.” Barrett continued to argument cogently:
“It is worth noting that Russia and Iran – the two nations most successfully resisting NWO regime change – are doing so in the name of God…. Putin’s reference to Satanism was a pointed rebuke to the New World Order elites, who – though they push militant secularism on the societies they are trying to undermine – are closet Satanists.
“Anyone who doubts this should run the name ‘Lt. Col. Michael Aquino’ through a search engine. Aquino, an avowed Satanist and credibly-accused mass child abuser, was rewarded for his crimes against children with an appointment as Chief of Psychological Warfare for the US military…
“The shock troops of the NWO’s war against religion and tradition (and Russia and Iran) are the neoconservatives. Operation Gladio terrorist Michael Ledeen explains:
“‘Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity which menaces their traditions (whatever they may be) and shames them for their inability to keep pace … We must destroy them to advance our historic mission.’
“Putin is stopping New World Order ‘creative destruction’ in Syria and Ukraine. He is part of a growing coalition opposing the NWO – not just religious traditionalists, but also progressive anti-globalization forces, including Hugo Chavez inspired anti-imperialists in Latin America.”
Kudos for Barrett here. The regime proved Putin right by applauding the Pussy Riot, a Trotskyite group that ended up having sex (literal pornography) at the Moscow National Museum. (We have discussed this issue in the past.) As always, Neocons like Seth Mandel of Commentary were on the front line defending their brethren.
But the crucial point here is that Putin, like Emmanuel Kant and even John Adams and others, understands that a nation cannot exist without objective morality, and objective morality cannot exist without Logos, the essence and sustainer of the moral universe.
In that sense, and whether he notices it or not, Putin was implicitly or indirectly attacking the Neo-Darwinian ideology, which states that objective morality is an illusion and has no metaphysical basis. It is here that we find again that Neo-Darwinian metaphysics is intellectually useless and worthless because it denies the very essence of a moral universe.
 Actually it was a Marxist/Leninist state.

Apocalyptic Weather Around World Sign of Fulfillment of Biblical Prophecy
By Rivkah Lambert Adler August 5, 2015 , 11:30 am
” ‘For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze,’ says the LORD of hosts, ‘so that it will leave them neither root nor branch.’ ” (Malachi 3:19)
Extreme weather is everywhere, but perhaps nowhere more dramatically than the scorching heat recently reported over Iran, where the heat index has been as high as 164℉ (73℃). Similar temperatures are being recorded in Iraq.
Where do we find this extreme weather in Biblical prophecy? In the tiny, three chapter long Book of Malachi, we find a clear reference “to a day that will burn like a furnace.” (Malachi 3:19)
In a recent blog post, Rabbi Lazer Brody, popular Israeli author and lecturer, reminded his readers of the prediction of Jewish sages that, as redemption gets closer, “God will remove the sun from its covering. The righteous shall heal in its heat but the wicked shall be doomed in it.”
Iran and Iraq are far from alone in experiencing tumultuous weather events in recent months.
A recent YouTube video compiling news sources of the sudden extreme weather around the world only highlights further the international apocalyptic-type weather currently taking place. News clips of deadly floods in the Midwestern US, wildfires in California and Saskatchewan, blazing temperatures in Tennessee and Indiana, clusters of earthquakes in Alaska, threatened eruptions of Mexico’s Volcano of Fire and much more illustrate the unprecedented meteorological occurrences.
On July 15, 2015, Fox News’s Shepard Smith reported on a new study that predicts that Oregon, Washington, and parts of Northern California are way overdue for an intense, margin rupture earthquake. The predicted 9.2 and subsequent tsunami could, according to the Federal government, cost as many as 13,000 lives in the Pacific Northwest.
On July 27, 2015, thunder and lightning over Moscow was so severe, at least one news report called it “apocalyptic”. On that one day, Moscow received over 40 percent of the rainfall it typically gets in an entire month.
The Science Alert website, which reports on science news, recently published a prediction that, based on the sun’s solar cycles, the entire earth could experience a second ice age within 15 years.
Have our prophets warned us about this pattern of extreme weather events? The End of Times blogger known as Tomer Devorah lists close to 20 Biblical sources of dramatic changes in the earth that have been prophesied since ancient times.
Rabbi Nir Ben Artzi, a mystical rabbi from southern Israel who publishes a weekly column about world events, connects all these news stories about extreme weather to the coming redemption. In nearly every weekly message, he warns that God is demonstrating His mastery over nature.
“The forces of nature: Every place with evil will go up in flames; there will be earthquakes, floods, winds, storms and volcanic eruptions,” Artzi explained. “God is thinning out the impurities in the world and burning them.”
US press blacks out Israeli defense minister’s citation of ‘Nagasaki and Hiroshima’ as model for dealing with Iran
5 May 2015
This is a story about the media blackout of important information about Israel: that their leaders are seriously misguided.
Two weeks ago, Electronic Intifada reported public comments by Israeli Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon in which he cited Hiroshima and Nagasaki as role models in responding to Iran. Ya’alon suggested that Israel might have to nuke Iran in order to prevent a long war: “at the end, we might take certain steps.” Last week Ali Gharib picked up the EI report at Lobelog and linked to the video of Ya’alon, speaking in English on May 5 to the Israel Law Center (and posted by that rightwing group, which supplied a transcript).
Law of War Conference: Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon
A man asked if democracies are “at a strategic disadvantage” in dealing with a threat like Iran. Ya’alon disagreed, and without prompting, brought up the possibility of Israel nuking Iran:
“Now those who claim that this battle is not fair because democracy can’t fight back tyrannical regime — not talking about terror organizations– I don’t agree with it.
In certain cases, we might take certain steps that we believe that these steps should be taken in order to defend ourselves. I mentioned the discussion about the interception of the rockets’ positions on civilian houses. We decided to do it.
I can imagine some other steps that should be taken. Of course, we should be sure that we can look at the mirror after the decision, or the operation. Of course, we should be sure that it is a military necessity. We should consider cost and benefit, of course.
But, at the end, we might take certain steps.
I do remember the story of President Truman was asked, How do you feel after deciding to launch the nuclear bombs, Nagasaki and Hiroshima, causing at the end the fatalities of 200,000, casualties? And he said, When I heard from my officers the alternative is a long war with Japan, with potential fatalities of a couple of millions, I thought it is a moral decision.
We are not there yet. But that what I’m talking about. Certain steps in cases in which we feel like we don’t have the answer by surgical operations, or something like that.”
So not only is he implicitly threatening nuclear war, he’s admitting that Israel has nukes?
“Israeli Def. Minister is using WWII and nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki as a moral guide for dealing with Iran.”
Jon Schwarz pointed out:
“It would be pretty big news if Iran’s Defense Minister were asked about Israel & he started talking about Hiroshima”
But there has been no coverage of this story in the mainstream media. It’s a blackout, conscious or not.
So the mainstream media are once again covering up crazy/scary/rightwing Israeli attitudes. Jodi Rudoren of the New York Times, for instance, is of the opinion that only a “small strain” in Israeli society is for holding on to the West Bank. It’s no wonder that the Times hasn’t covered Ya’alon’s frightening statement.
Yet these are the officials that the Obama administration is dealing with. These are the paranoid war-planners whom the White House has struggled to contain for years. And the American people are clueless.
“A BBC investigation has found that one of its senior presenters, Sarah Montague, breached the organization’s editorial standards on impartiality in a radio interview she conducted with Israeli defense minister Moshe Yaalon in March.”
“(The Palestinian Solidarity Campaign had taken apart that interview, showing how Ya’alon repeatedly denied the occupation–
they enjoy already political independence. They have their own political system, government, parliament, municipalities and so forth. And we are happy with it. We don’t want to govern them whatsoever.’
“They are connected with us like Siam twins, so the whole idea of full separation isn’t viable.”
(EI now quotes a statement from Fraser Steel, head of complaints at BBC, agreeing with the complaints in an email:
“Mr. Yaalon was allowed to make several controversial statements … without any meaningful challenge, and the program-makers have accepted that the interviewer ought to have interrupted him and questioned him on his assertions.)”
Putin Issues Ultimatum, Threatens War Over Erdogan’s Support of ISIS
By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor on August 4, 2015
Russian President Vladimir Putin in a meeting with the Turkish Ambassador issued a verbal ultimatum calling for an immediate end to Turkey’s support for ISIS and violations of Syria’s sovereignty. In doing to, Putin has drawn a red line over Syria, after weeks of escalating NATO moves against that beleaguered nation.
In a startling move, Russian President Vladimir Putin castigated Turkish President Recep Erdogan, calling him a “dictator” and threatening to sever diplomatic ties with Turkey over what Putin claims is Erdogan’s continued support of the ISIS terror organization.
It is believed that this is in response to Erdogan’s claim, pasted across the western press yesterday, that Putin had told him Russia was no longer going to support Syria in their war against al Qaeda, ISIS and their western backed sister organizations.
Putin summoned Turkish Ambassador to Moscow, Umit Yardim to the Kremlin for what turned out to be a two hour diatribe by Putin with fiery accusations returned by the Turkish Ambassador. This is the best translation of key statements made by Putin:
“Tell your dictator Erdogan to go to hell and that unless he stops well established and easily proven support for ISIS, Russia will sever diplomatic relations. We are prepared to turn Syria into a big Stalingrad for Turkey and her Saudi allies and their vicious little gang of Hitlers.
Your little dictator is a hypocrite, attacking the military coup in Egypt while, at the same time, he is trying to overthrow the elected government of Syria. As it stands, China, Iran and Russia will guarantee the survival of Syria.”
In an article by the Moscow Times, a publication controlled by CIA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton, a different version is given with Ambassador Yardim shouting down Putin and blaming Russia for all of Syria’s ills. As an illegally foreign owned media organization, the Moscow Times is being sold to Russian owners by government decree with change of ownership coming in September 2015.
The meeting is said to have lasted over two hours and to have been behind closed doors. The version we have of statements made were leaked by sources close to President Putin. We believe the statements quoted above are to be considered an ultimatum
Yesterday, President Obama announced that the United States would provide air support for US trained jihadists fighting inside Syria. The White House statement may well have been misquoted by the Murdoch owned Wall Street Journal. The Journal, in another case of “mission creep,” quoted spurious anonymous sources in the Pentagon embellishing the president’s statement to include air attacks on Assad forces.
It is very possible that the White Houses’ failure to demand a retraction for the WSJ story until early this morning Washington time may have been a contributing factor to Putin’s rage. To a large extent, the Wall Street Journal has become an organ of Netanyahu’s schemes since Murdoch bought the publication in 2011.
Netanyahu has long seen himself as the ultimate winner in any military confrontation between Russia, China and NATO and Japan.
The Plot Thickens
One other possible contributing factor in Putin’s attack on Erdogan is the issue of the downing of MH17, the Malaysian Airlines flight shot down over Ukraine. Last week, Russia vetoed a move in the United Nations Security Council to set up an unprecedented investigative tribunal to adjudicate the issue based on the yet to be released results of the Dutch (NATO) investigation.
Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov made it clear that he has no confidence in a NATO run investigation and that Russia sees this as an attempt by the west to spin what Russia sees as a Kiev backed false flag terror attack into a propaganda victory against Russia.
Russia sees the continued attempt to blame the downing of MH17 on a Russian BUK missile when no evidence whatsoever exists supporting that scenario, one the western press has adhered to unflinchingly.
Russia has tried to present evidence, backed by German based forensic investigators, that MH17 was shot down by a Kiev based SU25 seen by multiple radars closing in on the Boeing 777 aircraft immediately prior to its downing. The west has refused to consider this evidence much as the west had refused to accept evidence of Turkey’s use of chemical weapons against civilians inside Syria.
In 2012, Russian investigators attempted to present scientific evidence of the use of Turkish sarin gas by al Nusra forces near Aleppo. The west refused to look at the evidence even when Turkish prosecutors had ordered the arrest of both Turkish nationals and foreign backed terrorists who were operating sarin production facilities inside Turkey.
It wasn’t until the possibility of military confrontation between the US and Russia became a reality that President Obama accepted the Syrian version of events. Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh outlines this confrontation and Erdogan’s role in the use of sarin gas against Syrian civilians in his book, The Red Line and the Rat Line.
In June 2015, Erdogan failed to win a majority in a national election, one swayed from Erdogan by a large Kurdish opposition vote. Erdogan has continued to rule without forming a government giving credibility to President Putin’s claim of Erdogan’s dictatorial rule.
It is estimated that a minimum of 25,000 ISIS fighters have transited Turkey into both Syria and Iraq since 2011. In the last 18 months, a number of Turkish officers have been killed or captured inside Syria. Additionally, most ISIS and al Nusra fighters captured by Syrian, Kurdish and Iraqi forces have told of Turkey’s full complicity in their terror operations.
It should be noted that the terror attack of June 20, 2015, purportedly by ISIS against Erdogan’s Kurdish political opponents in the town of Suruc, was used to provide a rationale for the Turkish air assault on Syria and Iraq. Turkey has flown hundreds of sorties against Kurdish villages along with providing air support for ISIS terrorists fighting against Kurdish forces of the YPG and PKK.
Another major factor involves a sea change in Saudi relations in the Middle East. In an article today from the Fars News Agency in Tehran, we read the following:
“In the context of the Russian initiative to sustain the Saudi-Syrian rapprochement, KSA Intelligence Chief may visit Damascus by the end of August, according to well-informed sources.
More than 200 Saudi are arrested by the Syrian authorities over their terrorist activities as 700 others have joined the militant groups which are fighting the Army, Al-Manar reported.
The sources added that the Russian side has managed to convince the Saudi leaders that battling ISIL and all the terrorist groups is of a great importance for all the regional countries.
Russia considers that preserving the Saudi-Syrian-Egyptian triangle will preserve the political and security situation in the Middle East and that if the terrorist groups manage to destroy this formula, terrorism will invade the whole region and reach Europe, according to the sources.
The sources note that the Saudi-Syrian convergence is expected to reach fruitful results yet that it needs time for KSA to arrange its internal files in preparation for a strategic change.”
With NATO moves in the region, including air defense weapons for Latvia, the militarization of Poland and America’s silence on Kiev’s continued violation of the Minsk peace accords, Putin may well have chosen Erdogan as the “weak underbelly” of NATO. With Erdogan’s domestic political problems and his possible complicity in staged false flag terror attacks against political rivals, civil war in Turkey is a very real possibility.
With NATO voting last week to back Turkey’s moves against Iraq and Syria “without question,” Putin may well be extracting payment from the United States for 14 years of unreasoning bellicosity.
"We Have A Civil War": Inside Turkey's Descent Into Political, Social, And Economic Chaos
Submitted by Tyler Durden on 08/08/2015 21:16 -0400
Deflecting criticism surrounding Ankara’s anti-terror air campaign, Turkey’s foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu last week told state television that strikes against ISIS targets would pick up once the US had its resources in place at Incirlik which will supposedly serve as a hub for a new "comprehensive battle."
Turkey has had a difficult time explaining why, after obtaining NATO support for a new offensive campaign to root out "terrorists", its efforts have concentrated almost solely on the PKK and not on ISIS. As we’ve discussed in great detail (here, here, and here), and as the entire world is now acutely aware, Ankara’s newfound zeal for eradicating ISIS is nothing more than a cover for its efforts to undermine support for the PKK ahead of snap elections where President Tayyip Erdogan hopes to win back AKP’s absolute majority in parliament which it lost last month for the first time in 12 years.
Cavusoglu was effectively suggesting that the reason it appears as though Ankara is overwhelmingly targeting the PKK at the possible expense of efforts to weaken ISIS is because Turkey must wait for the US to show up first, at which point the "real" fight will begin with the possible assistance of Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Qatar. In the meantime, the country is descending into civil war and for many Kurds, the frontlines are all too familiar. Here’s Al Jazeera:
Located on the Tigris River just upstream from Turkey's Iraqi and Syrian borders, Cizre has been shaken by nocturnal gun battles between police and residents in recent days.
Its streets remain deserted after sunset, while families sleep in the innermost rooms of Cizre's squat, cinderblock homes to protect themselves from gunfire.
Hostilities have smouldered here since Turkey's government and the Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK) abruptly ended a two-year ceasefire in late July, imperilling the hard-won gains of Kurdish politicians and reversing prospects for a historic peace deal nearly achieved in March.
Since July 23, Ankara has launched hundreds of bombing missions against the PKK's strongholds in northern Iraq, while the PKK has killed at least 18 members of Turkey's security forces in guerrilla attacks throughout the country's east.
Those attacks have put Cizre, a long-defiant bastion of pro-Kurdish sentiment, back on the front lines of a conflict that has cost more than 30,000 lives since 1984.
"They say war is coming, but it's already here in Cizre," said Rasid Nerse, a 26-year-old construction worker.
The ending of the ceasefire came less than two months after Turkey's Kurdish-rooted People's Democracy Party (HDP) scored a historic victory in national elections.
Though Kurdish deputies usually run for parliament as independents, the HDP cleared a daunting 10 percent electoral threshold to become the first pro-Kurdish bloc to formally enter parliament under its own name.
Though the HDP has called on both sides to end the subsequent hostilities, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has attacked the political party, requesting last week that parliament strip Kurdish lawmakers of their legal immunity from prosecution.
Our citizens see the police as a threat to their security, not a provider of it said Kadir Kunur, HDP mayor of Cizre.
Ankara has ordered the detention of more than 1,000 HDP members in a national "anti-terror" probe that has focused on the PKK.
The PKK is listed as a "terrorist group" by Turkey, the European Union and the US.
In Cizre, that crackdown has helped bring about the present security crisis.
As mourners returned to their homes after Nerse's funeral, many struggled past a series of makeshift walls and ditches that have recently been erected to encircle their neighbourhoods.
Armed members of the PKK youth wing (YDG-H) began setting up the improvised barriers on July 26, when 21-year-old resident Abdullah Ozdal was killed during a protest.
The vigilante youth group grew out of previous security crackdowns, which saw hundreds of Cizre youths radicalised while in Turkish prisons.
Operating at night and frequently armed, the YDG-H similarly encircled the town during anti-government riots across the region last year.
"Our citizens see the police as a threat to their security, not a provider of it," said Kadir Kunur, the town's HDP mayor. Kunur pointed to the dozens of bullet holes that pockmark the HDP's building in Cizre, remnants from one of many deadly raids police launched here in the early 1990s.

Obama v. Bibi — Fight to the Finish
Friday - August 7, 2015 at 12:02 am
By Patrick J. Buchanan
In his desperation to sink the Iran nuclear deal, Bibi Netanyahu is taking a hellish gamble.
Israel depends upon the United States for $3 billion a year in military aid and diplomatic cover in forums where she is often treated like a pariah state. Israel has also been the beneficiary of almost all the U.S. vetoes in the Security Council.
America is indispensable to Israel. The reverse is not true.
Yet, without telling the White House, Bibi had his U.S. ambassador arrange for him to address a joint session of Congress in March — to rip up the president’s Iran nuclear deal before it was even completed.
The day the deal was signed, using what The Washington Post calls “stark apocalyptic language,” Bibi accused John Kerry of giving the mullahs a “sure path to a nuclear weapon” and a “cash bonanza of hundreds of billions of dollars … to pursue its aggression and terror.”
Bibi has since inspired and led the campaign to get Congress to kill the deal, the altarpiece of the Obama presidency.
Israel Ambassador Ron Dermer, a former Republican operative now cast in the role of “Citizen Genet,” has intensively lobbied the Hill to get Congress to pass a resolution of rejection.
If that resolution passes, as it appears it will, Obama will veto it.
Then Israel, the Israeli lobby AIPAC, and all its allies and auxiliaries in the think tanks and on op-ed pages will conduct a full-court press to have Congress override the Obama veto and kill his nuclear deal.
Has Bibi, have the Israelis, considered what would happen should they succeed? Certainly, there would be rejoicing in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and Bibi would be crowned King of Capitol Hill.
But they will have humiliated an American president by crushing him by two-to-one in his own legislature. Such a defeat could break the Obama presidency and force the resignation of John Kerry, who would have become a laughing stock in international forums.
The message would go out to the world. In any clash between the United States and Israel over U.S. policy in the Middle East, bet on Bibi. Bet on Israel. America is Israel’s poodle now.
With the Gulf nations having joined Britain, France, Germany, China and Russia in backing the deal, Israel is isolated in its opposition. And, two weeks ago, Kerry warned that if Congress rejects the deal, “Israel could end up being more isolated and more blamed.”
Hardly an outrageous remark.
Yet, Israel’s ex-ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren fairly dripped condescension and contempt in his retort: “The threat of the secretary of state who, in the past, warned that Israel was in danger of being an apartheid state, cannot deter us from fulfilling our national duty to oppose this dangerous deal.”
But this is not Israel’s deal. It is our deal, and our decision. And Israel is massively interfering in our internal affairs to scuttle a deal the president believes is in the vital interests of the United States.
When the U.S. and Israel disagree over U.S. policy in the Mideast, who decides for America? Them or us?
Why does Barack Obama take this? Why does John Kerry take this?
One can only imagine what President Eisenhower would have done had he seen Bibi at the rostrum of the U.S. House of Representatives, ripping apart his Middle East policy. Or had Ike learned that an Israeli ambassador was working the halls of Congress to kill an arms deal he and John Foster Dulles had just negotiated.
Lest we forget, Ike told his wartime colleague, Prime Minister Anthony Eden, to get his army out of Suez or he would sink the British pound. Ike then told Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion to get his army out of Sinai or face U.S. economic reprisals.
Eden and Ben-Gurion did as they were told.
That was an America respected by friend and foe alike.
When Harry Truman felt that Gen. Douglas MacArthur had been insubordinate in resisting presidential restrictions on his actions in Korea, Truman fired the general and astounded the nation.
Yet this president and John Kerry have been wimpishly seeking for weeks to placate Netanyahu. And Bibi is no Douglas MacArthur.
Time to stop acting like wusses.
The president should declare Dermer persona non grata and send him packing, then tell the Israeli government we will discuss a new arms package when you have a prime minister who understands that no nation interferes in the internal affairs of the United States. None.
That could bring Bibi’s government, with its single-vote majority, crashing down. And why not? After all, Bibi was a virtual surrogate for Mitt Romney when Mitt was trying to bring down Obama.
Obama and Kerry are never running again. Deep down, they would surely relish taking Bibi down. And they could do it.
Deal or no deal, it is time America started acted like America again.

Massive Toxic Algae Bloom Spreading Across Pacific Coast
An unprecedented bloom of toxic algae that spreads thousands of miles across the Pacific Coast of the United States and Canada is raising concerns for health and massive economic loss through the closing of fisheries.
The massive algae bloom emerged in May and spans from the Channel Islands off the coast of Southern California to Alaska's Aleutian Islands.
"It's just lurking there," said Vera Trainer, research oceanographer with the Northwest Fisheries Science Center in Washington State, talking to Reuters. "It's the longest lasting, highest toxicity and densest bloom that we've ever seen."
The bloom produces a profusion of demoic acid, a chemical compound that accumulates in shellfish, sardines, and anchovies. It also works like a neurotoxin on higher marine life such as sea lions.
According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, contaminated seafood can cause amnesic shellfish poisoning in humans which can lead to short-term memory loss, brain damage, and death.
Last month, Washington state was awarded an $88,000 grant to analyze the bloom which already has prompted fishery closures.
According to the NOAA, the closure of a Washington State clam fishery cost $9.2 million in lost income and damaged the state’s $84 million commercial crabbing industry.
Oceanographers are studying whether climate change among several other factors could be contributing to the bloom of pseudo-nitzschia algae. Researchers believe it was partially spawned by unusually warm water along the West Coast. Trainer said scientists are also concerned about the El Nino effect, a recurring phenomenon that alters sea currents and temperatures.
Tensions High as 'Oath Keepers' Descend on Ferguson in Full Military Gear
22:49 11.08.2015(updated 04:09 12.08.2015)
In the midst of an already tense night in Ferguson, a vigilante group of four heavily armed white men are now patrolling the streets. Described as a "fiercely anti-government, militaristic group," the self-proclaimed "Oath Keepers" were reportedly hired by a conservative media organization to protect a single journalist in the event of violence.
Ferguson saw its first wave of unrest last August, following the shooting death of unarmed teen Michael Brown by Darren Wilson. Riots erupted, a curfew imposed. Dozens were arrested, including journalists, and in the aftermath, much of the violence was blamed on a militarized police force which unnecessarily inflamed the situation.
One year later, Ferguson is still seeing its share of unrest. On Sunday, a day of peaceful protests turned into riots, and many still felt that was largely the result of police antagonizing protesters.
But now a new factor could add to tensions in a racially charged environment: a group of four white men, voluntarily patrolling the streets with military-grade weaponry.
They call themselves the “Oath Keepers,” an organization of former military, police, and first responders, who seek to "defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic."They wear bulletproof vests and communicate through two-way radios. They carry pistols attached to their hips as a secondary measure. Their primary tools are automatic assault rifles.
"I’m happy that we’re able to defend ourselves. It’s been our right for a long time," one member told NBC, speaking about the state’s open carry laws. Missouri allows licensed individuals to openly carry firearms, provided they’re not doing so in an "angry or threatening manner," though that caveat is certainly up for interpretation.
While they may consider themselves as defenders of freedom, others have a hard time seeing them as anything other than a right-wing militia fueled by a shared love of the Second Amendment. The Southern Poverty Law Center, a civil rights organization, has described the group as a "fiercely anti-government, militaristic group."
"Their presence was both unnecessary and inflammatory," St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar said, according to Reuters.
Others in the community had similar sentiments, questioning the wisdom of introducing a hostile presence into an already inflamed situation.
"You’re going to bring some uncommissioned citizens, white citizens, into a black community like this? It’s disrespectful," Talal Ahmad, who took part in last year’s protests, told Reuters. "Here, in a black neighborhood, we’re already living in a state of terror."
Still, the question remains: who did send in the civilian cavalry?
The Oath Keepers made headlines last month when the group took it upon itself to guard military recruitment centers. Blaming the US government for failing to prevent a shooting which left four dead in Tennessee, the Oath Keepers took up arms before local authorities asked them, politely, to please stop.
It’s entirely possible that the organization’s emergence in Ferguson is a similar voluntary fashion. But according to the leader of the group, known only as John, the Oath Keepers were present to protect a journalist from conservative website Infowars.
"There were problems here, there were people who got hurt. We needed to be prepared for that," John said, according to Reuters.
Infowars has denied any affiliation with Oath Keepers.
"Despite the remark by ‘John,’ Infowars did not hire the Oath Keepers to protect its journalists reporting from the embattled Missouri city," reads a statement from the website. "The Oath Keepers went to Ferguson on their own without consulting with Infowars."
The website also claims that the allegations are an attempt by the mainstream media to link Infowars with extremist groups.
Over twenty people were arrested during skirmishes on Monday night. This followed dozens of arrests earlier in the evening, as demonstrators gathered outside of the St. Louis County Federal Courthouse and blocked traffic along Interstate 70.
Rumors are circling among activists on the ground that local authorities are considering the implementation of curfew for Tuesday night. Given that the events of Monday night were relatively mild, a curfew may only serve to exacerbate the situation.
Bank of America, Starbucks, Microsoft, and Susan G. Komen among 38 companies supporting Planned Parenthood's aborted baby organ trade
Monday, August 10, 2015 by: Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) Following the release of two undercover videos showing high-level Planned Parenthood executives negotiating prices with potential clients for aborted baby body parts -- a felonious, criminal operation -- including the illegal sale of vital organs and other tissue, a more thorough listing of private donors to this pro-abortion organization has surfaced revealing who else in the corporate world is on board with this disgusting human chop-shop endeavor.
The group "2nd Vote," which tracks contributions from consumers and corporations to various political causes, lists a whopping 38 companies who regularly contribute to Planned Parenthood. Though the federal government funds most of Planned Parenthood's operation costs, these 38 corporations contribute upwards of 25% of Planned Parenthood's $1.3 billion in annual revenues.
The list of contributors are:
American Cancer Society
Bank of America
Bath & Body Works
Ben & Jerry's
Clorox (owner of Burt's Bees)
Johnson & Johnson
March of Dimes
Susan G. Komen
Conventional cancer industry supports aborted baby "crushing" for profit
As you'll see from this list, there's a number of pharmaceutical, processed food, fast food and even "nonprofit" corporations and organizations listed among Planned Parenthood's top donors. Two different cancer groups, the American Cancer Society (ACS) and Susan G. Komen, are also listed as major contributors.
To some, this list might come as a shock. But to others, including many of our readers here at Natural News, it's perhaps not all that surprising. Susan G. Komen, for instance, once tried to peddle alcoholic malt beverages and fried chicken buckets from KFC as foods that women should consume to avoid breast cancer. At the same time, Komen rejects organic food as beneficial in the fight against cancer.
Starbucks, which sells the world's most overpriced burnt coffee, is a member of the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA), which remains among the most outspoken opposers of mandatory GMO labeling. Other GMA members include PepsiCo, which was exposed for using aborted human fetal tissue in the manufacture of flavor chemicals for its soft drinks.
Eugenicist Bill Gates in lockstep with Planned Parenthood's abortion-for-profit scheme
Planned Parenthood's many other corporate sponsors include members from Big Oil, Big Pharma, Wall Street, and of course Big Eugenics -- yes, Bill Gates's Microsoft is listed as a top donor to this pro-abortion group as well. According to 2nd Vote, Microsoft supports multiple pro-abortion groups including Planned Parenthood, the Center for Reproductive Rights, the Center for American Progress and UNICEF.
The Gates Foundation, which Bill and his wife Melinda operate in the interest of promoting vaccines throughout the world, also funds pro-abortion endeavors, having donated a combined $117 million to the International Planned Parenthood Federation, Planned Parenthood of Western Washington and Marie Stopes International just in 2012.
None of this is shocking, of course, considering Bill Gates's father used to be the head of Planned Parenthood. Bill Gates is one of the world's leading eugenicists, in fact, actively promoting population-reducing interventions like vaccines, genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), and abortion on demand.
"The Gates Foundation has a long history of pushing abortion on an international scale and funding pro-abortion groups like Planned Parenthood," writes Steven Ertelt for LifeNews.com.
next week...keep on believing.
