Russia launches ‘wartime government’ HQ in major military upgrade – Preparations for War?

Russia launches ‘wartime government’ HQ in major military upgrade - Preparations for War? 94

From: rt.com

Russia is launching a new national defense facility, which is meant to monitor threats to national security in peacetime, but would take control of the entire country in case of war.

The new top-security, fortified facility in Moscow includes several large war rooms, a brand new supercomputer in the heart of a state-of-the-art data processing center, underground facilities, secret transport routes for emergency evacuation and a helicopter pad, which was deployed for the first time on Nov. 24 on the Moscow River. The Defense Ministry won’t disclose the price tag for the site, but it is estimated at the equivalent of several billion dollars.

The new National Defense Control Center (NDCC) is a major upgrade on what was previously called the Central Command of the General Staff, a unit tasked with round-the-clock monitoring of military threats against Russia, particularly ballistic missile launches, and deployment of strategic nuclear weapons. It was roughly a counterpart to the US National Military Command Center, the Pentagon’s principal command and control site.

The NDCC inherits all those functions, but also has plenty of extra roles as well. In peacetime, an additional task is to monitor all of Russia’s important military assets, from hardware being produced by defense contractors to the state of oil refineries, to weather conditions and their effect on transportation routes.

And if Russia does get into a war, the center would act as a major communication hub and a form of wartime government, delivering reports to the country’s military command and giving orders to all ministries, state-owned companies and other organizations, according to the needs of the armed forces.

“The creation of NDCC was one of the biggest military projects of the past few years. The closest analogy in the past in terms of functions and tasks was the Commander-in-Chief HQ in 1941-45, which centralized all controls of both the military machine and the economy of the nation in the interests of the war,” Lt. General Mikhail Mizintsev, the NDCC chief, told Lenta.ru in an interview.

The military says the upgrade has been long overdue. The national security situation may be very fluid in modern times, and instead of days the leadership may have only an hour to take crucial military decisions. The center’s job is to offer the Defense Minister and the President options in case of emergency, which would be based on facts, figures and accurate projections.

Potentially the biggest part of the upgrade was the creation of communication and data processing equipment that would give the military computer power and software needed to factor in hundreds of parameters in their mathematical models. The Defense Ministry had to use only domestically-produced hardware due to security considerations, which limited its options.

According to officials, the result is a very robust computer network with state-of-art data encryption and multiple backup sites spread throughout the country, which would keep the center functional even if its main facility in Moscow is damaged by an enemy attack or sabotage.

The center employs over 1,000 officers working on a rotating watch system. Mizintsev said the armed forces selected their best officer for the posts, many of which are new for the Russian military and require skills not previously taught to officers on a regular basis until recently. They have been operating in trial mode since April.

A thoroughly military facility, the NDCC has an unexpected civilian component to it. Its location in Moscow is close to two major hospitals, including the Pirogov trauma center. Both hospitals are quite old and their original designs didn’t provide for dedicated helicopter pads.

The Defense Ministry said the medics can share NDCC’s new pad on the Moscow River for emergency patient transportation. The pad can accommodate helicopters weighing up to 15 tons, enough to land a Mil Mi-8, world’s most-produced transport helicopter, or a Mil Mi-38, its designated replacement.

In 2013 Russia reported a Stuxnet attack on one of its nuclear power plants. Stuxnet is malware designed by the United States and Israel and was used to attack Iran’s nuclear program.

The West has accused Russia of launching cyber attacks against NATO, EU ministries and Wall Street. In November, the Department of Homeland Security accused the Russians of inserting trojan horse malware in critical U.S. infrastructure computers. It said the malware “is poised to cause an economic catastrophe,” ABC News reported.

In 2001 the Pentagon declared a cyber attack on U.S. networks would be considered an act of war. The U.S. considers Russia and China as primary adversaries.

Russian president Putin has accused the United States of rekindling the so-called Cold War in the wake of developments in Ukraine. In October he said his country will resist any attack by using all means at its disposal, including the nuclear option.

“The US is now seen in Moscow as irredeemable and determined to destroy Russia, which must resist by reinforcing and rearming its military, investing in technological independence (the so-called import replacement or ‘importozamescheniye’), and by building a world-wide anti-US alliance,” the globalist Jamestown Foundation reports.

Mission impossible: Physicist from Great Britain described the coming end of the world

Mission impossible: Physicist from Great Britain described the coming end of the world 111

Ultimately, the sun will explode, and all that remains of our once magnificent star is a small, faintly glowing ember, says Brian Cox.

The Earth will probably not live up to this moment. And if it does, it will be in the form of burnt and barren stones that will witness the dying agony of the Sun, explained British physics professor Brian Cox . When will the end of the world happen and what it will be, the scientist told the BBC program “Wonders of the Universe“.

The sun is what gives life to our planet, but this same star can kill us all. Unfortunately, it is not getting younger, so the likelihood of its explosion only increases every year.

The sun has remained unchanged for four billion years. It burns 600 million tons of hydrogen into helium every second. This solar energy is the foundation of life on Earth. 

According to Cox, when the hydrogen dries up in the interior of the Sun, the final stage of the life of the star will begin. This will be disastrous for the Earth. 

“The sun will not just go out. When the star runs out of fuel, its core will begin to expand rapidly. The additional heat that will be released in the process will cause the outer layers of the Sun to expand. The luminary will increase to such an extent that it will fill the entire horizon when viewed from Earth. For this will be the end of our planet – all living things will perish under the incinerating light,” the physicist said.

“Gradually, our planet will become hotter and hotter, so that the last perfect day will come on Earth, but in the end, the existence of all life will become impossible,” the physicist described as the last day of life on Earth.

After the solar core collapses, the extra heat it generates will cause the outer layers of the Sun to expand, and this will burn the Earth. The catastrophe will happen in about a billion years. Then the Sun will become a red dwarf – this is the final phase of the star’s life. 

In six billion years, the Sun will explode, throwing a huge amount of gas and dust into space, forming a giant nebula, the professor explained.

It is unlikely that humanity will be able to stop this process, therefore the only possible salvation is the exodus to other planets.

Why some US preachers think that “Antichrist will come from Russia”

Why some US preachers think that "Antichrist will come from Russia" 112

The USSR was perceived by wide sections of American society not only as a geopolitical, but also a sacred enemy, which was reflected in Ronald Reagan’s speech to evangelicals in 1983, when the American president dubbed the Soviet Union an evil empire.

The restructuring and subsequent disintegration of the Soviet state softened the perception of Russia in many religious communities, but the country’s activity in the Middle East revived old eschatological concepts based on a peculiar interpretation of the Bible.

Why some US preachers think that

The interpretation of scripture continues to give some Christian activists in the United States a pretext for detecting apocalyptic threats from Russia. As the modern writer and evangelist Joel Rosenberg states, the collapse of the USSR does not mean the death of the Russian bear, but “Ezekiel gives a clear understanding that he is in hibernation and will soon return with revenge.”

Ezekiel’s prophecy

A negative assessment of the USSR among American religious communities has always been based not only on Soviet atheism and destruction of churches, but also on the biblical prophecy of Ezekiel. In accordance with this prediction, “in the last years” the ruler Gog from the northern land of Magog will invade Israel with the Persians, Ethiopians and Libyans, as well as with the wars of Homer and the “House of Fogarma”.

The wrath of God will fall on the invaders, and a great shock will happen in the land of Israel: all living beings will “tremble” and “mountains will fall, and cliffs will fall, and all walls will fall to the ground.” However, the invaders will be defeated after “all-sinking rain, stone hail, fire and brimstone” hit them: Gog and his troops will perish, and God will send fire to the land of the invading ruler.

Why some US preachers think that

All this, according to the prophecy, will happen to the glory of the Lord. It is noteworthy that in the New Testament the words Gog and Magog designate pagan tribes that will go to battle with the people of God.

The events from the Old Testament book of Ezekiel were subsequently associated by theologians with the Antichrist and the last judgment. According to the blessed Augustine, Gog represents the enemies of the church, and Magog personifies the devil.

What does Russia have to do with it?

Nevertheless, the allegorical interpretation of the concepts from the prophecy of Ezekiel was never the only one, as early as the 1st century AD the historian Josephus Flavius ​​identified the people of Magog with the Scythians. Later, many readings of the Old Testament words appeared, which were attributed by researchers to different peoples living north of Israel.

The reason for Magog’s connection with Russia was the 1st verse of the 39th chapter of the book of Ezekiel, in which Gog is called the prince of Rosha (which is consonant with Russia), Meshech and Tubala (Tubala). There are no capital letters in Hebrew, which is why Bible translators often had to deal with ambiguous situations. The word “rosh” was given the meaning of a proper name only by the Greeks, while representatives of the Latin faith most often understood it as the adjective “main”.

It was this word that caused the binding of Ezekiel’s prophecy to Russia. At the same time, in the Bible of King James, which Protestants consider canonical, Gog is called “the supreme prince of Meshech and Tubal.”

This version of the Holy Scripture is considered the official one for the English language and is most widespread in the United States, therefore it is very strange when American Christian activists resort to the Greek translation when interpreting Ezekiel.

Freaks and speculators

There is no state church in the United States, and religious policy contributes to the emergence of a wide variety of spiritual communities, which is why Christian denominations are widespread in the country – organizations that are intermediate between the church and the sect. Most often, the preachers of these particular associations declare that Russia is connected with the Antichrist.

Why some US preachers think that

Thus, the official website of The Family International movement claims that Russia is Magog, and Meshekh and Tubal are Moscow and Tobolsk. According to supporters of such views, domestic support for Syria could lead to an invasion of Israel, which would mean the fulfillment of Ezekiel’s prophecy. The founder of the religious movement Koinonia House, Chuck Missler, who announced the beginning of the apocalypse on January 1, 2000, believes that Russia will attack Israel together with Turkey, which will withdraw from NATO.

Joel Rosenberg, mentioned above, interprets the book of Ezekiel as a prediction of Russia’s invasion of the holy land together with Muslim countries, first of all, with Iran, which in the Old Testament is understood as Persians. Typically, people who claim such things have a reputation in the United States as either eccentric or religious speculators.

Each on a different path

Throughout the history of Christianity, many social groups that called themselves adherents of the truth of the faith created their own Antichrist, which, according to the Bible, is covered with good ideas. The Protestants, including Martin Luther and John Calvin, considered the Popes to be his incarnation, the Russian Old Believers considered Peter I in this capacity.

The Bible, in isolation from its canonical reading, provides opportunities for a varied interpretation of reality, not only because of the imagery and volume, but also because of the complexity of translation from ancient Hebrew, which fell out of use in the 2nd century AD.

Apocalypse & Armageddon

Everyone is waiting for the beginning of the Apocalypse from the New Year while an Israeli mystic warns of a “new plague” approaching

Everyone is waiting for the beginning of the Apocalypse from the New Year while an Israeli mystic warns of a "new plague" approaching 113

On the eve of each coming New Year, all newspapers, magazines and other media resources have always been engaged in promising predictions for the next 365 days. Nothing, of course, never came true, but it was like a tradition: astrologers and political scientists provide forecasts, and the people listen to them. Then, after a couple of months, everything that was promised evaporates and after another ten months, the cycle repeats again.

This went on from year to year, for many years – even from the era when there was no television. However, in 2020, something like that has changed and now, on the eve of the New Year, the tabloids are racing with each other to spread predictions about the End of the World. Some refer to Nostradamus, others to someone else there, but everything promises a noble star – chips, aliens, war, zombies, cataclysms and so on.

We don’t know how it will be with the war and cataclysms, but something has clearly changed in the mass consciousness – after all, newspapers write what the public reads.

Against this apocalyptic background, the editorial office of israel365news stands out well – they have always concentrated more on the signs of the End of the World. And now, in the approach of 2021, the Editorial Board sat down there, summed up the balance and found that at least ten, the main signs of rounding off the current civilization cycle have come true.

We will not retell everything in great detail, since we devoted separate material to each moment at one time or another, but when these new phenomena add up to, as it were, one, this is also a kind of event.

There are many new phenomena: frequent rains over Israel, as a result – the desalination of the Dead Sea and the appearance of fish there; the widespread outbreak of locusts, whose population in some places has increased by 8,000 times; the “plague” epidemic, the role of which today is obviously played by COVID-19; an increase in seismic activity in Israel, which indicates an imminent earthquake of great strength, which will be a harbinger of the war between Gog and Magog, which will enter an active phase. The most important thing though is the elections.

The coalition in Israel has collapsed, and the fourth elections, according to the prophecy, will not happen – the Messiah will come to Israel.

It is possible that everything will happen exactly as the rabbis say, perhaps the rabbis are wrong, but let’s see what happened in October-December in Saudi Arabia:

https://twitter.com/ghtaan4/status/1339452983705268225?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

It has been raining since October, turning deserts into seas, and not for the first time or year. The result is a radical change in the landscape:

https://twitter.com/saleh_alazzaz/status/1317126143292678146?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw

The problem is that the Quran says:

“The Day of Judgment will not come until the Arab land is again transformed into pastures, along which rivers flow ”

This is exactly what is being observed now.

At the same time, many other large and small signs of the imminent Doomsday have come true: the spread of printing and books, the construction of high houses, the acceleration of time, the fall in morals, and so on.

After all this, the so-called “Camel Battle” should happen, when two large Muslim countries collide with each other. Then the invasion of the tribes of Yajuj (Gogi) and Majuj (Magogi) will begin. And then – the Middle East will crack in half, and in the literal sense, after which water will rush into some of the holes, and smoke and fire will fall from others. In general terms, the Koran writes about it this way:

“The sun will be twisted, the mountains will move and the stars will fall, the seas will blaze, the sky will be pulled back, Paradise will be brought closer and Hell will be kindled.”

In general, it is rather surprising that Islamic mystics speak about the End of the World exactly the same as mystics in Israel. There is also an exact same picture of the Apocalypse in Christian sources – both ancient and modern. There cannot be so many coincidences out of the blue. Moreover, the main coincidence is that all three religions write about the sudden arrival of all this. The Koran tells about this moment as follows:

“… you will not have time to eat a piece of bread, make a bargain, a deal or drink milked camel milk.”

As experienced military people say, a real war always begins suddenly. With the End of the World, it will also be, obviously, approximately the same. That is, it is impossible for mortals to predict the exact date, so all that remains is to wait for the fulfillment of other, the final signs.

Israeli prophet warns of approaching “new plague”

israel365news.com, in the material of December 23, posted some small forecasts with reference to the new sermon of the mystical rabbi Nir Ben Artzi.

Ben Artzi has a number of confirmed predictions, the main of which is a pandemic, which he guessed month after month and even described a little in the most general terms. Also, Ben Artzi has predictions and less, predictions, so to speak, local, concerning the events in Syria.

So, when the Russian military began to hastily deploy unparalleled S-300 systems in Syria in large numbers, everyone in Israel became terribly nervous. But the rabbi reassured the people that these missiles would not threaten the Jews in any way. Although the generals of the Russian Federation on TV argued the opposite – somehow miraculously not a single Russian missile flew into any Israeli plane.

Everyone is waiting for the beginning of the Apocalypse from the New Year while an Israeli mystic warns of a "new plague" approaching 114

Further, as we all remember, the Iranians were indignant about the non-firing missiles and said that Russian missiles were bad and that “we will put our own.” Since December last year, Tehran began to carry these miraculous missiles to Syria and civilians in Israel again got scared and again came to the rabbi for advice. To this, Rabbi Rabbi Ben Artzi only quoted Psalm 37:15:

“Their sword will enter their own heart, and their bows will break.”

As soon as the rabbi said this, a streak of misfortunes fell on the valiant Iranian missilemen – the missiles began to explode either at the start, sometimes during transportation, and sometimes even at the plant.

This summer, when the pandemic seems to have calmed down a bit, Ben Artzi promised a second wave. Moreover, he promised not for the fall, as everyone was wanging, but said that at the end of December a new strain would come and wild blockages would begin. As you can see, everything happened exactly as he predicted, so the words of the mystic about the next plague should be taken into account. He said the following about this plague in a recent sermon:

“There is an epidemic of plague in the world now, but very soon there will be another epidemic. This is because God wants to change humanity into a different species. “

According to the rabbi, the new epidemic will be much worse than what we are now seeing, it will sweep in a wave across the United States and Russia, so Ben Artzi urged the Jews of these countries to urgently go to Israel, for only there will be salvation, especially since the next stage, according to rabbi, there will be the coming of the Messiah.

Of course, the words of the rabbi about “changing people into a different species” are not very clear, which should probably be understood somehow in the context of the whole sermon, but israel365news does not cite the whole sermon. Nevertheless, one thing is clear: if you believe Ben Artzi (and we wouldn’t believe a mystic with such a reputation) – the world is waiting for some new disease, against which even coronavirus may seem like a children’s matinee.

However, whatever the reputation of Ben Artzi, any new prophecy should be compared with the words of other mystics. Oddly enough, other mystics, for example, the famous Polish parapsychologist Krzysztof Jackowski, say almost the same thing, that is, the adventures with the plague for the next three months will be tough.
