NATION UNDER JUDGMENT - HOME OWNERSHIP SUFFERS

When a nation is under judgment, Deuteronomy 28 spells out how one can tell. We read of multiple examples in the early chapters of Exodus as the Pharaoh that opposed Jehovah came under judgment for his defiance against God's Will. Because of Pharaoh, food sources were destroyed, Egypt was littered with dead and dying livestock and animals, homes and public buildings were destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do -- they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. David Wilkerson wrote in several of his books the different signs of judgment upon a nation.

HOME OWNERSHIP SUFFERS -- People struggle to put a roof over their heads; they try to have a home but are thwarted.

Deut. 28: 30: Thou shalt betroth a wife, and another man shall lie with her: thou shalt build an house, and thou shalt not dwell therein: thou shalt plant a vineyard, and shalt not gather the grapes thereof.

OBAMA REBUKED: GREAT BRITAIN - DIVIDED

This blog wrote on September 12, 2014, about David Cameron's efforts to divide Israel.

UK: BREAK UP AND BREAK AWAY

Now, in the aftermath of this month's Paris Summit on dividing Israel, not only have the people of Great Britain voted to leave the EU, Cameron suddenly finds himself no longer in power.

Do you think he saw that coming?

Is he the first casualty among the world leaders who gathered in Paris?

Interestingly, the vote to leave the EU gave a stunning rebuke to President Obama.

Was This The Deciding Factor For Brits To Vote "Leave"?

Farage Tells Breitbart: ‘Obama Visit Caused “Brexit Bounce”, Swayed Vote In Favour Of Leave’

Curiously, President Obama actually rebuked Benjamin Netanyahu, on the night of the BENGHAZI TERROR ATTACK, for what he perceived as Netanyahu 'meddling' in the U.S. elections.

-------------------------------

GG Note:

We are repeatedly hearing that President Obama keeps claiming that there is no 'link' or 'connection' between ISIS and Omar Mateen, therefore, it is difficult to prove that Mateen's motive for the shooting was Islamic ideology.

If that is the bar, to find a link FROM ISIS TO MATEEN, or, for that matter, from ISIS to ANY TERRORIST who commits an act of terrorism here in the U.S. (or elsewhere), then, most likely, a link will NEVER be found. It seems this administration refuses to consider inspiration as a motivating factor.

I believe that this is the only way President Obama can keep from looking like a complete and utter failure.

Let's look at it this way.

Most organizations that have huge numbers of employees will often hold annual meetings to recognize employees who have done outstanding work. These award banquets and recognition events are designed for a number of purposes, only two of which we need consider here. One, they are to present awards. Two, these awards are meant to INSPIRE other employees to try and achieve the same level of recognition. It is simply not possible to 'touch base' with each and every employee to personally inspire them. It is hoped that employees will desire to achieve recognition and, therefore, will strive of their own volition to attain recognition.

That's the way I see Omar Mateen. This administration's ONLY criteria for establishing that Mateen was inspired by ISIS was that ISIS had to have contacted Mateen personally in some way. This is unrealistic. It is clear not only to me but a whole lot of others that a motive for Mateen was to 'become somebody' to ISIS, to achieve recognition. While many Americans feel nothing but revulsion for ISIS and its Islamic ideology, Mateen and the San Bernardino shooters and Nidal Hassan and others do not. They want, crave?, validation from ISIS, and unfortunately for the rest of us, validation means acts of deadly violence against those who do not adhere to Islamic teachings. In other words, us infidels.

While this administration is busy sniffing their noses that such a criteria would even be suggested, they are tone deaf that most Americans really don't care who contacted whom for 'inspiration.' All that matters to most Americans is that nearly 100 Americans have been killed by Muslims in this country under President Obama's watch.

Radical Islamists Have Killed 94 On American Soil, More Than All Other Extremists Combined, Since 9/11

Not good news in light of this . . .

Obama's legacy: ONE MILLION Green Cards to Migrants from Majority-Muslim Countries

NOW we learn that Obama's 'fundamental transformation of America' is that it isn't Muslim enough to suit him.

And it really is a problem that President Obama gets quite defensive when people point out Islamic teachings could be a motivating factor. In fact, Donald Trump, who has never been defended on this blog, was actually right this past week to point out that Obama got more mad at him (Trump) than at Mateen.

Trump: President Obama ‘Was More Angry at Me Than He Was at the Shooter’

Of course, there may be a reason for that.

TWO BARS AND BLAME

Interesting, there will now be TWO famous gay bars here in America under President Obama's watch. As President Obama is getting ready to dedicate the first ever national monument in U.S. history to gay rights, which happens to be a gay bar, the worst mass shooting in U.S. history occurs, in a gay bar.

Rev. Franklin Graham warns, "Flaunting sin is a dangerous move," said Rev. Graham. "God’s Word tells us, 'Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people' (Proverbs 14:34)."

Rev. Graham: Obama To Honor Gay Bar, 'A Monument to Sin?'

Omar Mateen's attack on the gay bar is being called the worst terror attack since 9/11.

Curiously, Rev. Graham's sister, Anne, recently reminded us of 9/11.

FOREIGN POLICY IN DISARRAY - MIDDLE EAST, NORTH AFRICA

When a nation is under judgment, Deuteronomy 28 spells out how one can tell. We read of multiple examples in the early chapters of Exodus as the Pharaoh that opposed Jehovah came under judgment for his defiance against God's Will. Because of Pharaoh, food sources were destroyed, Egypt was littered with dead and dying livestock and animals, homes and public buildings were destroyed or heavily damaged because that's what judgments do -- they destroy and dismantle a nation's infrastructure and the economy. David Wilkerson wrote in several of his books the different signs of judgment upon a nation.

FOREIGN POLICY IS MOCKED AND RIDICULED AND IN DISARRAY.

David Wilkerson preached in his sermon 'The Last Days of America' about the signs of a nation under judgment. In this sermon, based mostly on Deuteronomy 28, Wilkerson says that one of the signs that a nation is under judgment is that her foreign policy is in disarray -- that nation will look foolish and incompetent.

And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the Lord shall lead thee. --Deut. 28:37

This verse indicates that a nation under judgment is talked about by other nations. Fingers are pointed and behavior is whispered about and gossiped about and laughed at. Questions are asked if good judgment is being used or good decorum or evident wisdom.

Deut 28: 19: Cursed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and cursed shalt thou be when thou goest out.

Deut. 28: 20: The Lord shall send upon thee cursing, vexation, and rebuke, in all that thou settest thine hand unto for to do, until thou be destroyed, and until thou perish quickly; because of the wickedness of thy doings, whereby thou hast forsaken me.

6/6 - POST PARIS SUMMIT

The Paris Summit ended with the idea to meet again sometime in late Fall. We'll see if that squares with any moves the U.N. makes towards recognizing a Palestinian state in September.

Or with any of Obama's ideas of his legacy. I personally don't think he intends for Netanyahu to outwit, outlast, or outplay him.

It sounds like one word might fit Paris right now -- chaos.

Starting with flooding:

City of Lights flooded: Paris, Seine River rises to highest level seen since 1982

Paris Flooding Reaches Highest Peak in Decades, Louvre Closes Down to Protect Art

It hasn't just been France that has seen historic flooding.

Floods are happening around the world: USA, Mexico, Russia, China, France, Germany, Belgium, Ukraine, Romania

29 people rescued by helicopter as giant mudslide blocks mountain village near Sochi

Lots of severe weather and storms:

Tropical storm Colin forms in the Gulf of Mexico, Florida to face flooding, dangerous seas

Seventeen million on the East Coast faced severe lightning storms on Sunday as New York's Governors Ball was CANCELLED

Another 51 people struck by lightning in Germany bringing total to over 100 this week in Europe

Michael Snyder is asking, "Why Is The Weather So Crazy All Of A Sudden?"

There have been riots . . . :

in France: Media blackout as France witnesses biggest revolution in 200 years

and in the U.S.: Violent anti-Trump protesters spit, sucker-punch and throw eggs at Americans trying to attend Trump rally in San Jose; Clinton and San Jose mayor who supposrts her candidacy condemn Trump (not the protestors)

And it might be interesting to note that as the Paris Summit was about Israel "giving the land 'back' to the Palestinians, we've seen the anti-Trump protestors at Trump rallies chanting and carrying signs in which they mock Trump's slogan of "Make America Great Again," with "Make America Mexico Again," and they want to start with California.

'Make America Mexico Again’

'Make California Mexico Again'

There were/are some notable terror threats:

Frenchmen arrested with 100 kilo explosives, many detonators, 3 grenade launchers and kalashnikovs… preparing attack on Euro Football in France

ISIS threatens terror attacks in U.S., Europe; calls Ramadan ‘month of conquest and jihad’

Syrian 'refugees' caught plotting massive terror attack in Germany

John McTernan has weighed in with his thoughts on the Summit.

And are we sure there won't be some sort of serious confrontation with Russia before Obama's out of office?:

Obama apologizes for Hiroshima; what message does this send to those nations that would seek to use nuclear weapons against us?

Russia claims U.S. refuses talks about missile defense system being installed on Russian border

Russia and Saudi Arabia dump $50bn in US assets

JUNE 3 - PARIS SUMMIT TODAY

Two posts today: this one and CALIFORNIA'S WOES below.

Multiple interesting news events as the Paris Summit starts today.

Beginning with France:

French President François Hollande on Thursday declared the region around Paris a natural disaster area

As Rail Workers Go On Strike In France, Hollande Scrambles For Calm

Muslims are setting Paris on fire, turning it into a war zone

Germany has not escaped the flooding.

ANOTHER deadly wave of flooding devastates German region

And the U.S. saw multiple terrible events yesterday.

First, historic flooding in Texas continues.

Record-breaking floods continue in Texas, state of disaster declared for 31 counties

And, alarmingly, three of our military branches saw tragedy yesterday.

Blue Angel crashes in Smyna, Tennessee, while practicing for air show

Air Force Thunderbird F-16 crashes in Colorado, moments after flying over President Obama

The Weather Channel reported this morning that a severe weather system is setting up that could impact Washington, D.C., on Sunday. Again, we've seen this pattern before of severe weather (or some other very newsworthy event) in the 24-48 hours after pushing peace talks on the Israelis.

Severe thunderstorms with large hail and damaging winds possible (along with heavy rain) from the Mid-Atlantic to the eastern Carolinas (isolated tornadoes possible)

Florida may be under the gun for a possible tropical storm.

A Tropical Depression or Tropical Storm May Develop in the Gulf of Mexico Next Week, Soaking Parts of Florida

And you may not have heard much about T.S. Bonnie any more, but she's dropped 13 inches of rain on Cape Hatteras since May 30, and is now starting to move away from the coast.

Economic warnings:

As noted in yesterday's post, Venezuela is in the throes of economic collapse. Despite that President Obama boasts again, ahead of the Paris Summit: The Economy Is Better Off Now Than When I Started and that anyone who says otherwise is 'peddling fiction.'

Here are some of those 'fiction peddlers.'

Alan Greenspan warns Venezuelan chaos is coming to the U.S.

Albert Edwards warns we could witness the largest stock market crash in decades … as much as a 75% plunge in 2016
