US vs Russia: ‘Group-Thinking’ the World into a New War

If you wonder how the lethal “group think” on Iraq took shape in 2002, you might want to study what’s happening today with Ukraine. A misguided consensus has grabbed hold of Official Washington and has pulled in everyone who “matters” and tossed out almost anyone who disagrees.

Part of the problem, in both cases, has been that neocon propagandists understand that in the modern American media the personal is the political, that is, you don’t deal with the larger context of a dispute, you make it about some easily demonized figure. So, instead of understanding the complexities of Iraq, you focus on the unsavory Saddam Hussein.

putin-wreath-laying

Vladimir Putin lays a wreath at Russia’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

This approach has been part of the neocon playbook at least since the 1980s when many of today’s leading neocons – such as Elliott Abrams and Robert Kagan – were entering government and cut their teeth as propagandists for the Reagan administration. Back then, the game was to put, say, Nicaragua’s President Daniel Ortega into the demon suit, with accusations about him wearing “designer glasses.” Later, it was Panamanian dictator Manuel Noriega and then, of course, Saddam Hussein.

Instead of Americans coming to grips with the painful history of Central America, where the U.S. government has caused much of the violence and dysfunction, or in Iraq, where Western nations don’t have clean hands either, the story was made personal – about the demonized leader – and anyone who provided a fuller context was denounced as an “Ortega apologist” or a “Noriega apologist” or a “Saddam apologist.”

So, American skeptics were silenced and the U.S. government got to do what it wanted without serious debate. In Iraq, for instance, the American people would have benefited from a thorough airing of the complexities of Iraqi society – such as the sectarian divide between Sunni and Shiite – and the potential risks of invading under the dubious rationale of WMD.

But there was no thorough debate about anything: not about international law that held “aggressive war” to be “the supreme international crime”; not about the difficulty of putting a shattered Iraq back together after an invasion; not even about the doubts within the U.S. intelligence community about whether Iraq possessed usable WMD and whether Hussein had any ties to al-Qaeda.

All the American people heard was that Saddam Hussein was “a bad guy” and it was America’s right and duty to get rid of “bad guys” who supposedly had dangerous WMDs that they might share with other “bad guys.” To say that this simplistic argument was an insult to a modern democracy would be an understatement, but the propaganda worked because almost no one in the mainstream press or in academia or in politics dared speak out.

Those who could have made a difference feared for their careers – and they were “right” to have those fears, at least in the sense that it was much safer, career-wise, to run with the herd than to stand in the way. Even after the Iraq War had turned into an unmitigated disaster with horrific repercussions reaching to the present, the U.S. political/media establishment undertook no serious effort to impose accountability.

Almost no one who joined in the Iraq “group think” was punished. It turns out that there truly is safety in numbers. Many of those exact same people are still around holding down the same powerful jobs as if nothing horrible had happened in Iraq. Their pontifications still are featured on the most influential opinion pages in American journalism, with the New York Times’ Thomas L. Friedman a perfect example.

Though Friedman has been wrong again and again, he is still regarded as perhaps the preeminent foreign policy pundit in the U.S. media. Which brings us to the issue of Ukraine and Russia.

A New Cold War

From the start of the Ukraine crisis in fall 2013, the New York Times, the Washington Post and virtually every mainstream U.S. news outlet have behaved as dishonestly as they did during the run-up to war with Iraq. Objectivity and other principles of journalism have been thrown out the window. The larger context of both Ukrainian politics and Russia’s role has been ignored.

Again, it’s all been about demonized “bad guys” – in this case, Ukraine’s elected President Viktor Yanukovych and Russia’s elected President Vladimir Putin – versus the “pro-Western good guys” who are deemed model democrats even as they collaborated with neo-Nazis to overthrow a constitutional order.

Again, the political is made personal: Yanukovych had a pricy sauna in his mansion; Putin rides a horse shirtless and doesn’t favor gay rights. So, if you raise questions about U.S. support for last year’s coup in Ukraine, you somehow must favor pricy saunas, riding shirtless and holding bigoted opinions about gays.

Anyone who dares protest the unrelentingly one-sided coverage is deemed a “Putin apologist” or a “stooge of Moscow.” So, most Americans – in a position to influence public knowledge but who want to stay employable – stay silent, just as they did during the Iraq War stampede.

One of the ugly but sadly typical cases relates to Russia scholar Stephen F. Cohen, who has been denounced by some of the usual neocon suspects for deviating from the “group think” that blames the entire Ukraine crisis on Putin. The New Republic, which has gotten pretty much every major issue wrong during my 37 years in Washington, smeared Cohen as “Putin’s American toady.”

And, if you think that Cohen’s fellow scholars are more tolerant of a well-argued dissent, the Association for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies further proved that deviation from the “group think” on Ukraine is not to be tolerated.

The academic group spurned a fellowship program, which it had solicited from Cohen’s wife, Katrina vanden Heuvel, because the program’s title included Cohen’s name. “It’s no secret that there were swirling controversies surrounding Professor Cohen,” Stephen Hanson, the group’s president, told the New York Times.

In a protest letter to the group, Cohen called this action “a political decision that creates serious doubts about the organization’s commitment to First Amendment rights and academic freedom.” He also noted that young scholars in the field have expressed fear for their professional futures if they break from the herd.

He mentioned the story of one young woman scholar who dropped off a panel to avoid risking her career in case she said something that could be deemed sympathetic to Russia.

Cohen noted, too, that even established foreign policy figures, ex-National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski and former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, have been accused in the Washington Post of “advocating that the West appease Russia,” with the notion of “appeasement” meant “to be disqualifying, chilling, censorious.” (Kissinger had objected to the comparison of Putin to Hitler as unfounded.)

In other words, as the United States rushes into a new Cold War with Russia, we are seeing the makings of a new McCarthyism, challenging the patriotism of anyone who doesn’t get into line. But this conformity of thought presents a serious threat to U.S. national security and even the future of the planet.

It may seem clever for some New Republic blogger or a Washington Post writer to insult anyone who doesn’t accept the over-the-top propaganda on Russia and Ukraine – much as they did to people who objected to the rush to war in Iraq – but a military clash with nuclear-armed Russia is a crisis of a much greater magnitude.

Botching Russia

Professor Cohen has been one of the few scholars who was right in criticizing Official Washington’s earlier “group think” about post-Soviet Russia, a reckless and mindless approach that laid the groundwork for today’s confrontation.

To understand why Russians are so alarmed by U.S. and NATO meddling in Ukraine, you have to go back to those days after the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. Instead of working with the Russians to transition carefully from a communist system to a pluralistic, capitalist one, the U.S. prescription was “shock therapy.”

As American “free market” experts descended on Moscow during the pliant regime of Boris Yeltsin, well-connected Russian thieves and their U.S. compatriots plundered the country’s wealth, creating a handful of billionaire “oligarchs” and leaving millions upon millions of Russians in a state of near starvation, with a collapse in life expectancy rarely seen in a country not at war.

Yet, despite the desperation of the masses, American journalists and pundits hailed the “democratic reform” underway in Russia with glowing accounts of how glittering life could be in the shiny new hotels, restaurants and bars of Moscow. Complaints about the suffering of average Russians were dismissed as the grumblings of losers who failed to appreciate the economic wonders that lay ahead.

As recounted in his 2001 book, Failed Crusade, Cohen correctly describes this fantastical reporting as journalistic “malpractice” that left the American people misinformed about the on-the-ground reality in Russia. The widespread suffering led Vladimir Putin, who succeeded Yeltsin, to pull back on the wholesale privatization, to punish some oligarchs and to restore some of the social safety net.

Though the U.S. mainstream media portrays Putin as essentially a tyrant, his elections and approval numbers indicate that he commands broad popular support, in part, because he stood up to some oligarchs (though he still worked with others). Yet, Official Washington continues to portray oligarchs whom Putin jailed as innocent victims of a tyrant’s revenge.

Last October, after Putin pardoned one jailed oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovsky, neocon Freedom House sponsored a Washington dinner in his honor, hailing him as one of Russia’s political heroes. “I have to say I’m impressed by him,” declared Freedom House President David Kramer. “But he’s still figuring out how he can make a difference.”

New York Times writer Peter Baker fairly swooned at Khodorkovsky’s presence. “If anything, he seemed stronger and deeper than before” prison, Baker wrote. “The notion of prison as cleansing the soul and ennobling the spirit is a powerful motif in Russian literature.”

Yet, even Khodorkovsky, who is now in his early 50s, acknowledged that he “grew up in Russia’s emerging Wild West capitalism to take advantage of what he now says was a corrupt privatization system,” Baker reported.

In other words, Khodorkovsky was admitting that he obtained his vast wealth through a corrupt process, though by referring to it as the “Wild West” Baker made the adventure seem quite dashing and even admirable when, in reality, Khodorkovsky was a key figure in the plunder of Russia that impoverished millions of his countrymen and sent many to early graves.

In the 1990s, Professor Cohen was one of the few scholars with the courage to challenge the prevailing boosterism for Russia’s “shock therapy.” He noted even then the danger of mistaken “conventional wisdom” and how it strangles original thought and necessary skepticism.

“Much as Russia scholars prefer consensus, even orthodoxy, to dissent, most journalists, one of them tells us, are ‘devoted to group-think’ and ‘see the world through a set of standard templates,’” wrote Cohen. “For them to break with ‘standard templates’ requires not only introspection but retrospection, which also is not a characteristic of either profession.”

A Plodding Pundit

Arguably, no one in journalism proves that point better than New York Times columnist Friedman, who is at best a pedestrian thinker plodding somewhere near the front of the herd. But Friedman’s access to millions of readers on the New York Times op-ed page makes him an important figure in consolidating the “group think” no matter how askew it is from reality.

Friedman played a key role in lining up many Americans behind the invasion of Iraq and is doing the same in the current march of folly into a new Cold War with Russia, including now a hot war on Russia’s Ukrainian border. In one typically mindless but inflammatory column, entitled “Czar Putin’s Next Moves,” Friedman decided it was time to buy into the trendy analogy of likening Putin to Hitler.

“Last March, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was quoted as saying that Russian President Vladimir Putin’s attack on Ukraine, supposedly in defense of Russian-speakers there, was just like ‘what Hitler did back in the ‘30s’ — using ethnic Germans to justify his invasion of neighboring lands. At the time, I thought such a comparison was over the top. I don’t think so anymore.”

Though Friedman was writing from Zurich apparently without direct knowledge of what is happening in Ukraine, he wrote as if he were on the front lines: “Putin’s use of Russian troops wearing uniforms without insignia to invade Ukraine and to covertly buttress Ukrainian rebels bought and paid for by Moscow — all disguised by a web of lies that would have made Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels blush and all for the purpose of destroying Ukraine’s reform movement before it can create a democratic model that might appeal to Russians more than Putin’s kleptocracy — is the ugliest geopolitical mugging happening in the world today.

“Ukraine matters — more than the war in Iraq against the Islamic State, a.k.a., ISIS. It is still not clear that most of our allies in the war against ISIS share our values. That conflict has a big tribal and sectarian element. It is unmistakably clear, though, that Ukraine’s reformers in its newly elected government and Parliament — who are struggling to get free of Russia’s orbit and become part of the European Union’s market and democratic community — do share our values. If Putin the Thug gets away with crushing Ukraine’s new democratic experiment and unilaterally redrawing the borders of Europe, every pro-Western country around Russia will be in danger.”

If Friedman wished to show any balance – which he clearly didn’t – he might have noted that Goebbels would actually be quite proud of the fact that some of Hitler’s modern-day followers are at the forefront of the fight for Ukrainian “reform,” dispatched by those Kiev “reformers” to spearhead the nasty slaughter of ethnic Russians in eastern Ukraine.

But references to those inconvenient neo-Nazis, who also spearheaded the coup last February ousting President Yanukovych, are essentially verboten in the U.S. mainstream media. So, is any reference to the fact that eastern Ukrainians have legitimate grievances with the Kiev authorities who ousted Yanukovych who had been elected with strong support from eastern Ukraine.

But in the mainstream American “group think,” the people of eastern Ukraine are simply “bought and paid for by Moscow” – all the better to feel good about slaughtering them. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “Seeing No Neo-Nazi Militias in Ukraine.”]

We’re also not supposed to mention that there was a coup in Ukraine, as the New York Times told us earlier this month. It was just white-hat “reformers” bringing more U.S.-sponsored good government to Ukraine. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “NYT Still Pretends No Coup in Ukraine.”]

In his column, without any sense of irony or awareness, Friedman glowingly quotes Natalie Jaresko, Ukraine’s new finance minister (leaving out that Jaresko is a newly minted Ukrainian citizen, an ex-American diplomat and investment banker with her own history of “kleptocracy.”)

Friedman quotes Jaresko’s stirring words: “Putin fears a Ukraine that demands to live and wants to live and insists on living on European values — with a robust civil society and freedom of speech and religion [and] with a system of values the Ukrainian people have chosen and laid down their lives for.”

However, as I noted in December, Jaresko headed a U.S. government-funded investment project for Ukraine that involved substantial insider dealings, including $1 million-plus fees to a management company that she also controlled.

Jaresko served as president and chief executive officer of Western NIS Enterprise Fund (WNISEF), which was created by the U.S. Agency for International Development with $150 million to spur business activity in Ukraine. She also was cofounder and managing partner of Horizon Capital which managed WNISEF’s investments at a rate of 2 to 2.5 percent of committed capital, fees exceeding $1 million in recent years, according to WNISEF’s 2012 annual report.

In the 2012 report, the section on “related party transactions” covered some two pages and included not only the management fees to Jaresko’s Horizon Capital ($1,037,603 in 2011 and $1,023,689 in 2012) but also WNISEF’s co-investments in projects with the Emerging Europe Growth Fund [EEGF], where Jaresko was founding partner and chief executive officer. Jaresko’s Horizon Capital also managed EEGF.

From 2007 to 2011, WNISEF co-invested $4.25 million with EEGF in Kerameya LLC, a Ukrainian brick manufacturer, and WNISEF sold EEGF 15.63 percent of Moldova’s Fincombank for $5 million, the report said. It also listed extensive exchanges of personnel and equipment between WNISEF and Horizon Capital.

Though it’s difficult for an outsider to ascertain the relative merits of these insider deals, they involved potential conflicts of interest between a U.S.-taxpayer-funded entity and a private company that Jaresko controlled.

Based on the data from WNISEF’s 2012 annual report, it also appeared that the U.S. taxpayers had lost about one-third of their investment in WNISEF, with the fund’s balance at $98,074,030, compared to the initial U.S. government grant of $150 million. [See Consortiumnews.com’s “Ukraine’s Made-in-USA Finance Minister.”]

In other words, there is another side of the Ukraine story, a darker reality that Friedman and the rest of the mainstream media don’t want you to know. They want to shut out alternative information and lead you into another conflict, much as they did in Iraq.

But Friedman is right about one thing: “Ukraine matters.” And he’s even right that Ukraine matters more than the butchery that’s continuing in Iraq.

But Friedman is wrong about why. Ukraine matters more because he and the other “group thinkers,” who turned Iraq into today’s slaughterhouse, are just as blind to the reality of the U.S. military confronting Russia over Ukraine, except in the Ukraine case, both sides have nuclear weapons.

Apocalypse & Armageddon

The apocalypse is approaching: which Torah prophecies about the End of the World began to come true

In 2018, the predictions of the end of the world made by the Jewish prophets began to come true.

According to legend, the text of the Torah was dictated to Moses by the Almighty himself. Over the centuries, these divine precepts were supplemented by various sages, they clarified certain provisions of the ancient religious document for their contemporaries, and also wrote down their own prophecies.

Of course, the lengthy text of the Torah contains many contradictions, because each of its co-authors had a personal idea of ​​the end of the world, for example. But in its most general form it says that the Almighty gave our world six millennia from the moment of creation. Then, as the prophets predict, bloody wars, numerous natural disasters will begin, the death of most of humanity will occur.

But every cloud has a silver lining: at this time the Messiah will appear on earth, who will lead the righteous to prosperity and prosperity. Therefore, individual followers of Judaism are trying with all their might to bring the end of the world closer, hoping to see the long-awaited messenger of the Almighty with their own eyes.

Three prophecies come true

Mystically minded people are always looking for signs of the approaching Apocalypse in various events: the movement of comets; natural disasters; solar and lunar eclipses; armed conflicts. There are several reasons for the followers of Judaism to believe that the end of the world is near. Three prophecies from the Torah, predicting the imminent Apocalypse, came true one after another.

Judge for yourself, in September 2018, a red heifer was born in Israel, which symbolizes the imminent divine cleansing of our world. In early October, renowned photographer Noam Bedein unveiled sensational photographs proving the presence of live fish in the waters of the Dead Sea, which has not been seen for millennia. And a month later, tourists were surprised to see a snake on the Wailing Wall hunting a pigeon.

All these events are similar to the omens of the Apocalypse described in the Torah, which gave various mystics and conspiracy theorists the opportunity to talk about the approach of the Day of Judgment. The next date for the imminent end of the world, based on these predictions, is set for fall 2021 – three years after the prophecies came true.

Snake on the Western Wall

On November 3, 2018, the British edition of The Sun and several other information resources reported about a snake that crawled between the stones of the Western Wall in Jerusalem. A reptile hunted a pigeon in the female section of the tourist complex.

However, the event did not cause much commotion. The Western Wall Heritage Foundation (the official organization responsible for this site of cultural and religious value) made a statement that the snake, approximately 1 meter long, was non-venomous. The summoned serpentologist without much difficulty caught her, and the incident was over.

But numerous mystics found a special, sacred meaning in this event. As you know, the inhabitants of the Middle East, like other lands, in ancient times worshiped animal totems. It was believed that they protect and support people, give them strength. Conspiracy theorists claim that the snake was a symbol of the ancient family from which the legendary kings of the Jewish people – Solomon and David – originated. The appearance of their totem animal in the women’s section of the Western Wall was interpreted as a sign of future changes. And the fact that the snake hunted a dove, personifying the Christian faith in various esoteric practices, was perceived by many mystics as evidence of the approach of the Apocalypse.

Although, according to some Jewish religious leaders, this event has a positive meaning. It is possible that our civilization will face a serious transformation in the near future, because any changes bring not only troubles, but also renewal of life. Moreover, the number of snakes (nakhash) in traditional numerology is 358, and the word “Messiah” (Moshiach) has the same arithmetic indicator.

The Book of Zohar, referred to by many Jewish mystics, calls our world a kind of opposite to the Garden of Eden. That is, on a sinful earth, a snake is not the personification of the forces of Evil. On the contrary, this reptile here signifies the purification and revival of divine holiness.

It is noteworthy that a few months ago, just after the end of the Tisha Bav fast, dedicated to mourning over the destruction of two Jewish temples, a stone weighing 220 pounds fell from the western part of the Western Wall.

Explaining this event, the conspiracy theorists decided that the centuries-old suffering of the Jewish people was over. Now the long-awaited revival begins, which will mark the imminent appearance of the Third Temple – a mystical religious building, which should be a testament to the onset of an era of prosperity and prosperity.

Live fish in the Dead Sea

In early October 2018, all the world’s news agencies published sensational photographs taken by the famous Israeli photographer Noam Bedein. For many years he explored the Dead Sea, capturing this unique natural reservoir. And here’s the real luck – in the waters, which were considered absolutely lifeless, fish calmly swim. And earlier, algae were seen there.

The Dead Sea is a closed lake with a salinity level of 300-350%, which is one of the highest in the world. According to biblical tradition, the reservoir was formed on the site of the destroyed cities – Sodom and Gomorrah. And here, on the earth cursed by the Almighty, there were no traces of life for many millennia.

The Old Testament prophet Ezekiel (622-570 BC), however, left an unambiguous indication of this. He wrote that the dead waters will come to life again just before the end of the world. And in the reservoir, which was considered unusable, fish will appear again.

But on the other hand, salt water is not an insurmountable obstacle to life. For example, Artemia (toad-legged crustacean) lives in the lakes of the Tiligul reserve, located near Odessa. The salinity level of those reservoirs is 269%. This is lower than the Dead Sea, but not much. And in the estuaries of Tuzla near the Kerch Strait, a furry worm lives quietly.

In any case, the appearance of fish in the Dead Sea is proof of significant changes taking place in nature.

Red calf

The book of the biblical prophet Daniel says that the sacrifice of the red cow will be another foreshadowing of the imminent appearance of the Messiah, since this ritual action will help to cleanse the world from all accumulated filth. Many followers of Judaism believe that after the sacrifice, the construction of the mystical Third Temple will begin, marking the beginning of an era of prosperity.

But the problem is that it is very difficult to find a cow suitable for the ritual. It should be an animal with perfectly red fur. Even two hairs next to each other, which have a different shade, make the horned pretender unfit for sacrifice. In addition, a cow should never wear yokes, be involved in agricultural work, and she must also be born on Israeli soil.

According to biologists, a perfectly red cow is a biological anomaly. Nevertheless, the Old Testament says that the first such sacrifice was made by Moses himself, and before the destruction of the Second Temple, the ritual was performed eight or nine times.

The Israeli religious organization “The Establishment of the Temple” set itself the goal of accelerating the coming of the Messiah, and breeders were involved in the work. And so, in September 2018, the birth of the “red heifer”, suitable for sacrifice, was solemnly announced to the whole world.

According to the instructions of the Mishnah (the sacred text of the followers of Judaism), the cow should be slaughtered in a special, ritual way, and the carcass should be burned. The ashes of such an animal have a cleansing power, which should contribute to the restoration of biblical purity in our sinful world.

According to mystics, the birth of the red calf is another omen of global changes that await our world. After all, it was from clay of this color, according to legend, that the first people were created.

By themselves, the above events are not particularly remarkable. Snakes are found in Israel and crawl wherever they please. Stones fall from the Western Wall, after all, this is an ancient structure. Ginger calves are born from time to time. And fish can live in salt water if they adapt. But it all depends on how you look. And if these are really omens of the Apocalypse? Wait and see.

Apocalypse & Armageddon

Will the conflict in Karabakh develop into a nuclear one?

With the outbreak of the war in Nagorno-Karabakh, crowds of political correspondents rushed to televisions and newspapers, spreading their fingers and puffing out their cheeks, vang about a future that will never come true. 

Nevertheless, everyone, especially the inhabitants of the Caucasus, is terribly interested in this future, and in the absence of another source of information, people are forced to listen to the songs of the mindless and stupid. Meanwhile, there are other sources of information, which are called Prophecies. 

With prophecies, however, everything is very difficult, especially with fake texts of recent times, where some “Lugansk elders” vang about getting up from their knees and call to unite around the great supreme leader.

The second problem with prophecies is the absence of such small countries as Armenia and Azerbaijan, for example. Prophets communicate with angels, and angels think on the scale of continents and hardly show them small territories. However, sometimes a few things slip: 

I saw an Angel lifting a sickle. He moved it over the countries of the Middle East. I saw Iran, Persia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, all of Georgia, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, all of Asia Minor. All these lands were covered in blood. I saw fire. Atomic weapons were used against many of these countries, smoke rose to the sky everywhere. Great destruction – people destroyed each other. I heard the words: “Israel, Oh Israel, the time of the great judgment has come.”

This prophecy belongs to a gentleman named Samuel Doctorian or Doctorian. He lives (lived?) In the United States and was either an ethnic Greek or an Armenian – we have no exact information. The prophecy was made in 1998, and by some miracle for 1998, it lists all the hotbeds of current or emerging conflicts.

The only thing is that there is nothing in Georgia yet, but from other sources we know that at least the city of Tbilisi will be destroyed by a nuclear explosion. One of the well-known elders in Georgia spoke about this back in the 1970s. Literally, he described the black ruins remaining from the city, over which even birds fell dead, but this is a separate topic, so we turn to the prophecies of Lord Doctorian:

The angel said: “Millions will die in China and India. The largest river in China will flood and destroy thousands of homes in flooding. Some nationalities will be against other nationalities, brother will go against brother. Asians will fight among themselves, atomic weapons will be used, which will destroy millions of people. ” Twice I’ve heard the word “disaster”. Then the Angel said that there would be a financial crisis in Asia and God would shake the world.

The largest river in China and in general on the continent is the Yangtze River. And somehow it so happened that in the summer of 2020, an unprecedented flood in the history of the PRC began there, which is taking place against the backdrop of a covid financial crisis, the conflict in Ladakh, Hong Kong and the South China Sea. And if not today, then tomorrow the dam of the Three Gorges hydroelectric power station will collapse, after which everyone will say “disaster” in chorus . But we read further:

I saw how large stones fell from the sky in different parts of Africa. The earth will be shaken with such force, with which it has not yet been shaken from the creation of the world. No one can escape the sword of the Lord. I saw the Nile river dry, the Nile was a god for the Egyptians. Most of central Africa will be covered in water – millions will die.

A very strange prophecy. On the one hand, it says that the Nile will dry up, on the other, Africa will be flooded. What does it mean? And to understand this as the Hydase hydroelectric power station, which is being built by the Ethiopians:

The result of filling this reservoir will first be the drying up of the Nile, and then a tactical missile strike on the dam, followed by flooding. And somehow it so strangely coincided that the dam began to be filled in 2020 – simultaneously with the flooding in China and the beginning of the war in the Caucasus. 

In general, three hits out of five (in total, Mr. Doctorian had five visions) and all three fall on 2020. The Angels did not name the date, but there is every reason to believe that the time for the fulfillment of the prophecies has begun.

H askolko exactly they realized we did not know how and do not know that they were there for the Angels. Maybe Angels from local orbital hosts, maybe Angels from a rival company, or maybe it’s some kind of Third Force. But in any case, the prophecy deserves to be brought in full and wang it on the development of events. 

The prophecy of Samuel Doctorian about a future tectonic cataclysm.

 This prophecy (vision) was revealed to Doctor Samuel Doktorian on the island of Patmos in 1998. On the same island, John the Theologian wrote down his predictions – “The Revelations of John the Theologian”.

Doctorian says: “I was alone for some weeks on the island of Patmos in my house. There I prayed and sought the Lord. There was a small church of St. Nicholas on the island, which no one visited. I went there and poured my heart into it before God. One day I found a large rock at the edge of a cliff, I wanted to sit on it to pray and read the Bible. I ate very little these days. Repeatedly visited the place where John saw the Revelation. A month has passed since I prayed in this remote place. I thought, asking myself, “Maybe God will send me HIS ANGEL for the tenth time?” I have already seen Angels nine times: in England, in Belgrade, Amman, in Jerusalem. I saw one Angel in Upper Egypt: He saved a woman who decided to commit suicide by hanging. I saw the Ninth Angel amid the hostilities in Beirut. At three o’clock in the morning, he woke me up from sleep and told me to leave this country at once. Until today, I am grateful to God for this, although I do not know what could have happened to me. And so I thought, “Will I see an Angel for the tenth time?”

An angel appeared with a message

On June 20, 1998, at 3:50 am here on Patmos, my room suddenly filled with light, even though there was no electricity here. On my right side were two Angels. Looking to the left, I led away three more Angels with wings. I saw their faces as the faces of people, they shone. They were dressed in very nice white long clothes. It cannot be described in human language. I asked myself “Why are there five of them?”

I was trembling all over, I was shaking. I wanted to scream, but I couldn’t. Then I saw myself standing in front of the meeting and prophesying, these words: “My Church, you preach love, but you must live by love, you must show it to others. There must be unity in my Body. There are many divisions among you. Where there is no unity, the Spirit cannot move and work. The flesh rules in My Church. There is a lot of impurity in My Church. I need and yearn for a people who would live a holy life. I died to make you holy. ”

While the prophecy was going on in the Spirit, I was shaking all over. Opening my eyes, I looked into the crowd. During this prophecy, these powerful Angels suddenly appeared. Walking back from the pulpit, I thought I was going to fall. Some force supported me so that I would not fall. I asked myself: “What will happen next?”

Suddenly the first Angel said: “We, the Angels of the five continents, have come to tell you about the future of these continents.” At that moment, I heard the screams of the people standing in front of me ” Oh-oh-oh-oh! ” I think they saw Angels too. Somehow, God made me understand that in the coming days in many places on earth He will reveal Himself to people through Angels. Such phenomena will often occur in churches. Thousands of people will simultaneously see Angels. The angels said: “What you see and hear – tell people.” Whether the peoples will accept it or not, I consider it my duty to announce what has been said to me.

First Angel: Message to All Asia

The First Angel said, “I have a message for all of Asia.” When He said this, in the blink of an eye I saw all of China, India and other Asian countries such as Vietnam, Laos, the Philippines, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia. Then the Angel showed me New Guinea and further down to Australia and New Zealand. “I am the Angel for Asia,” He said.

I saw in His hand a very large trumpet with which He will blow over all Asia. Millions will hear this powerful trumpet voice. Then He said: “There will be catastrophes and famines. Many will starve to death. All over Asia there will be earthquakes and the sea will cover the land. “

I clearly heard the words spoken by the Angel: “Large parts of the earth will fall into the sea. In some places in Australia there will be earthquakes, it will split and most of it will be covered by the sea. ” It was scary.

I asked myself, “Did I hear correctly?” To this the Angel said: “In China and India, millions will die. The largest river in China will flood and destroy thousands of homes in flooding. Some nationalities will be against other nationalities, brother will go against brother. Asians will fight among themselves, atomic weapons will be used, which will destroy millions of people. ” Twice I’ve heard the word “disaster”. Then the Angel said that there would be a financial crisis in Asia and God would shake the world.

As He spoke, I was shaking. Looking at me, He smiled and said: “There will be a great spiritual awakening, the chains will break, the obstacles will be overcome. All over Asia, China, India, people will come to Christ. There is going to be a big and strong revival in Australia. This is the final harvest. “

Then, as if in the name of God, He said: “I will prepare My Church for My coming.” After the news of the judgment, I was happy to hear this good news. All this time, five Angels were in my room. It was a powerful experience.

Second Angel: Middle East

Then I saw the second Angel holding a sickle in his hand, as they do during the harvest. He said, “The harvest has come in Israel and the countries before Iran.” In the blink of an eye, I saw these countries and heard: “All Turkey and those countries that rejected Me, rejected the message of love, will hate and destroy each other.”

I saw an Angel lifting a sickle. He moved it over the countries of the Middle East. I saw Iran, Persia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, all of Georgia, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, all of Asia Minor. All these lands were covered in blood. I saw fire. Atomic weapons were used against many of these countries, smoke rose to the sky everywhere. Great destruction – people destroyed each other. I heard the words: “Israel, O Israel, the time of the great judgment has come.”

The angel said: “The elect, the Church and the remnant, the people will be cleansed. The Holy Spirit will prepare the children of God. ” I saw a flame of fire rising to the sky. The angel said, “This is the final judgment. My Church will be cleansed, preserved, and prepared for the last day. People will die of thirst. There will be very little water throughout the Middle East. The rivers will dry up, and the people in these countries will wage war over water. “

The angel showed me that the UN, due to the catastrophic situation in the Middle East, would disintegrate and as such would no longer exist. The angel with the sickle will reap the harvest.

Third Angel: Europe

After that, Angel showed me all of Europe from the North down to Spain and Portugal. In His hand He held a measuring branch.

I saw Him flying over Europe and saying these words: “I am deeply concerned, filled with suffering. Injustice, impurity and godlessness throughout Europe. Sin has risen to the sky. The Holy Spirit is filled with suffering. “

I’ve seen rivers in Europe overflow their banks and flood millions of homes. Czechoslovakia has had the worst floods ever before.

Suddenly I heard the rumble of an earthquake all over Europe. “Countries that have never been shaken by an earthquake will be shaken,” said the Angel. Suddenly I saw how the Eiffel Tower broke and disintegrated in Paris. Most of Germany will be destroyed. Big city London – destruction everywhere.

I’ve seen floods all over Scandinavia. I looked south and saw Spain going through great famine and great destruction. Many in Spain and Portugal will starve to death.

I was alarmed and said: “Lord, what will happen to Your Children?” The angel responded with the words of God: “I will prepare them. They should be looking forward to the appearance of the Lord. Many in these days will cry to Me and I will save them. I will work great miracles for them, I will show them My Power. Amid this great destruction, in these countries the mercy of God will dwell. I was happy – God protects his children.

4th Angel: Africa

Now we went to Africa. I saw the fourth Angel with wings flying over Africa. Also, I could see all the way, from the cities in the south to Cairo in the north. The angel destined for Africa was carrying a huge sword.

Suddenly I heard them say the words: “Innocent blood is shed, strife among the nations. Generations are far from the Lord – thousands have ruined each other. I have seen my believing children in Africa. I will bless them abundantly. I will control the weather: the sun will burn fieryly in certain places. Big rivers will dry up, millions will die of hunger. There will be floods elsewhere. The grounds will be shaken. Those who thirst for blood and do lies, My sword will judge, there will be many earthquakes, many cities will be flooded. “

I saw large stones falling from the sky in different parts of Africa. The earth will be shaken with such force, with which it has not yet been shaken from the creation of the world. No one can escape the sword of the Lord. I saw the Nile river dry, the Nile was a god for the Egyptians. Most of central Africa will be covered in water – millions will die.

“Lord, this is all bad news, just all destruction. Is there any good news? ”I asked. The Lord answered: “The last day has come – the day of judgment. My love was rejected and the day of judgment came. ” I was trembling and shaking all over. I thought I would not survive this.

Fifth Angel: America

I saw the last Angel flying over North and South America, en route from the North Pole to Argentina, from the US East to California. I saw the cup in his hand. The angel said that he would pour out the judgments of the court over these countries, which are in this bowl.

Then I heard an Angel speaking: “There is no morality, no justice, no holiness. Idol worship, materialism, drunkenness, attachment to sin. The shedding of innocent blood – millions of children are killed before they are born. Families break up. An adulterous generation. Exactly the same position as in the days of Noah. Lying preachers, false prophets, rejection of My love. Many of them preach religion, rejecting the true Power. “

When I heard all this, I asked the Angel: “Can’t you wait a little longer? Don’t pour it out. Give one more chance for repentance! ” He replied, “The Lord often spoke to them, but they did not listen. Look, the time has come. They love money and entertainment more than they love Me. “

When the Angel began to pour out the contents of the bowl, I saw how large icebergs began to melt. When it started, I saw flooding all over Canada and North America: all the rivers overflowed their banks, causing destruction everywhere.

I heard how international trade collapsed – like an earthquake and New York’s skyscrapers collapsed and fell. In the oceans I saw ships sinking, I saw how an Angel poured a bowl over Mexico, and both oceans joined – the Atlantic and the Pacific. Most of Brazil was covered in water. The Amazon River has turned into a large lake. Forests have been destroyed and flooded. Major cities in Brazil have been destroyed, and earthquakes have hit many places. When the Angel poured out the contents of the bowl, great destruction occurred in Chile and Brazil, which had not happened before. The whole earth was shaking.

Everything will be done soon

Here the Angel said: “This will all happen in a very short time.” I said, “Can’t you put it all off? Don’t pour these things over the globe (earth). ” Suddenly I saw five Angels standing around the globe with their arms and wings raised to heaven, saying, “All the glory of God is in heaven and on earth. The time has come and He will glorify His Son. A new heaven and a new earth will be created. God will destroy the works of the devil forever. I will show My Power by keeping My children in this destruction. Get ready for the day when the Lord comes. “

My room was filled with light and brilliance of Angels. Suddenly, they ascended into the sky. As I looked up into the sky, I saw Angels heading in five directions. I did not sleep, my body trembled all the time.

I asked: “Lord, should I leave Patmos?” He said, “No, for a special reason I brought you here.” I said, “The Angels’ message about the whole world is not good news. This is judgment, punishment, destruction, obliteration. What will people say about me? I have always been a preacher of love, peace and good news. ” The angel said, “This is our message. You are an instrument, a channel ”. I said, “Lord, let your will be done.”

Scientists warn of imminent pole reversal and critical weakening of the Earth’s geomagnetic shield

Since 1850, the Earth’s magnetic field has been weakening. At the turn of the millennium, it began to decline exponentially, by more than 10% in a decade – this decline is extreme and alarming.

The Earth’s magnetic field protects us from cosmic radiation. Our shields have been discharged and this is very bad news for all life on our planet and this may even lead to another mass extinction.

“”When the magnetic field weakens, the poles change,” says David Mauriello of ORP and MRN. Over the past 100 years, both the north and south poles have been rapidly approaching the equator and their rate of mixing increases, Mauriello warns. 

The S Pole is now behind the Antarctic continent and is heading straight for Indonesia, and the N Pole is moving across the Arctic Circle towards Siberia, it too is heading for Indonesia – where the poles are likely to meet over the next few decades, perhaps around 2050.

This “meeting” will lead to one of two possible options: 

1) a complete reversal will occur (aka “reversal”, where the magnetic poles change)
 or 
2) a “bounce back” will occur and the poles will quickly return to their original starting points (in other words, an “excursion”).

The main problem, however, is not the pole shift, although that is certainly one of the problems, Mauriello continues. No, the biggest problem is the waning magnetosphere resulting from the pole shift.

“As the magnetic field weakens, more and more cosmic radiation can penetrate the Earth,” Mauriello explains

“Not only cosmic rays will increase, but also the entire wide spectrum of radiation. Did you notice this summer, just standing in the sun for even a few minutes was hell? ” 

“This is because we are at the solar minimum, we have a reduced magnetic field, and you feel the influence of this radiation. And this, unfortunately, will increase for the rest of your life – or as long as the reversal / hike takes place. “

In recent years, it has been documented that magnetic inversions and excursions have caused some of the largest mass extinctions on the planet, including the Early Dryas event, which wiped out up to 65% of the world’s megafauna.

And this is already happening right now!

Heartbreaking images show the aftermath of Australia’s worst massive whale landfall in history. To date, an estimated 400 whales have died.

It may well go down in history as one of the largest such events in history, but it certainly isn’t unprecedented. Recently, there are data in many other directions, and moreover, that they all occur during solar minima.

Back in 1985, about 450 whales were stranded in Auckland, New Zealand. In 1996, 320 whales stranded off Dunsborough, Washington. 

In addition, this week in Tasmania, for the first time since 2009, more than 50 stranded whales were deployed. 

And in 2017, a staggering 600 whales landed on New Zealand’s South Island, killing more than 350.

So, this is 1985, 1996, 2009, 2017, and now 2020 – these are not random dates: all these years fall within the solar minima, “when the maximum cosmic radiation penetrates the planet, and this would also be a decrease in the magnetic field – confusion for animals “- Mauriello notes.

“These are predictable events based on the simultaneous extinction of the magnetosphere and the disintegration of our Sun,” Mauriello says. “”These events will continue for maybe another year or so, and then when we hit the solar minimum of cycle 25, we can expect them to happen in 2031, 2032, 2033.””
 

Mauriello concludes: “The magnetic deflection or reversal will continue as the Sun also enters great lows – these two events occurring at the same time, in my opinion, are not accidental, but will actually intensify the already ongoing Little Ice Age.”

“You and I – we all seem to be experiencing the beginning of the next cosmic catastrophe here on Earth.”
