    Originally published by the Jerusalem Post. A new Syria is emerging. And with it, a new Middle East and world are presenting themselves. Our new world is not a peaceful or stable one. It is a harsh place. The new Syria is being born in the rubble of Aleppo. The eastern side of the city, which has been under the control of US-supported rebel groups since 2012, is being bombed into the Stone Age by Russian and Syrian aircraft. All avenues of escape have been blocked. A UN aid convoy was bombed in violation of a fantasy cease-fire. Medical facilities...

    The average, reasoning person needs to be added to the "endangered species" list. The world continues to go mad. And who are the most delusional, with few exceptions? The Geopolitical Leaders of the World. This week's update, entitled "Geopolitical Delusions" looks at some of the life-altering decisions that are occurring behind closed doors in the smoke-filled rooms of the United Nations. From condemning Israel for so called "Human Rights Violations" to the revival of the Oslo Accords and a demand that Israel return to her borders established in 1949, we are rushing to a flash point that could see Biblical...

    Each passing week brings us closer to the most critical election of our lifetimes, and with each passing week we learn vividly what is actually at stake. Monday’s debate promises to be the most watched in the nation’s history, and why not? As Obama finishes his eighth year in office, the United States is practically disintegrating under the weight of terrorism – from both jihadis and faux civil rights groups like Black Lives Matter. Last weekend and into Monday morning, a would-be mass murder planted a series of bombs across New York and New Jersey. Only dumb luck spared the...

    This campaign season never fails to disappoint, not even for a day. Despite incredibly strong denials to the contrary, last weekend it was proved for all the world to see that there is something wrong with Hillary Clinton. The campaign officially calls it pneumonia, but the public record clearly shows “something else going on.” Another doozy came later in the week, when Colin Powell’s hacked emails were released. He had some choice words for Trump, Hillary, and especially Bill Clinton. What did we learn? Finally, the Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte ordered that U.S. military advisers leave the Philippines. The following...

    The focus turns back to culture and geopolitics this week as John talks about "The Handwriting Is on the Wall". The attack on the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Religion is now being waged by the Civil Rights Commission of the federal government. Churches need to be prepared to deal with this issue and stand strong. In geopolitics, the focus is on Israel, Russia, Turkey and what used to be called Syria. You will see, that, indeed, the handwriting is on the wall.

Certainly, the time has come when people have not, and will not put up with sound doctrine, because it doesn't jive with societal tendencies (Read: Sin.)

    Trump's Presidential Visit to Mexico Turkey Targets Kurds LIVE Saturday (9/3) 8 AM EST!!! Trump's visit to Mexico this week was a watershed moment in the presidential campaign season. In one daring move, Donald J. Trump proved that his rhetoric as a candidate is already producing desired diplomatic and policy effects. Moreover, it shows that Mexico considers a Trump presidency a very real possibility. Meanwhile, John Kerry suggests that the media should cease covering terrorism. Abroad, Obama's best pal - Turkey's Recep Erdogan - has once again stepped up the vicious targeting and ethnic cleansing of Kurds. This pits two...

    urkish tanks and other vehicles have rolled across the Syrian border after heavy shelling of an area held by so-called Islamic State (IS). Military sources told Turkish media 70 targets in the Jarablus area had been destroyed by artillery and rocket strikes, and 12 by air strikes. Turkish-backed Syrian rebels who are following the advance say they have entered the town of Jarablus itself. The operation is aimed against both IS and Kurdish fighters. Turkey shelled Syrian Kurdish forces in the region this week, determined not to let them fill the vacuum if IS leaves. US Vice-President Joe Biden warned...

    On Wednesday, America's Vice President Joe Biden will arrive in Turkey. His main mission is to smooth things over with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who is getting angrier with the United States by the day. The reason Erdogan is so angry with the United States is, Erdogan says, that America still provides a safe haven to Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen, who Ankara accuses of being behind the failed military coup on July 15. Both before, but especially after the coup, the Turkish government has accused Gülen, who lives in Pennsylvania, of being a terrorist leader comparable to ISIS self-declared...

    As a follow up to a previous message entitled "The Canary in the Coal Mine", John ramps up the rhetoric this week with his update entitled "The Canary is on Life Support." As many may know, miners used Canaries to warn them of increased levels of dangerous gas in the mine shafts. Due to the canary's elevated respiration rate and faster metabolism, it would react to fatal levels of dangerous gasses long before human life would be lost. It was an "early warning system" per se.

    Severe fighting in Hasakah, in north-east Syria, continues between Syrian government forces and U.S. advised Kurdish YPG groups. It is still unclear why these clashes broke out after years of mostly peaceful co-existence in the city. These clashes convince Turkey that the danger of a Kurdish state creation is imminent. This will unite the Turkish, Syrian, Iranian and Iraqi hostile positions towards such plans. This unity ends the dreams of an independent Kurdish nation. The YPG declared that it wants all Syrian government forces to leave Hasakah. But those forces are the sole protection of the large Assyrian (Christian) and...

    "Crooked" is a label that aptly fits Hillary Clinton, but the FBI and WikiLeaks revelations regarding Hillary's private email server and 33,000 deleted emails points to another apt label for Hillary: reckless. Hillary's foreign policy mistakes -- even traitorist activity -- in the Middle East are "reckless" in two senses, for they show: 1) a careless lack of attention to detail, and 2) a coldness or lack of caring about what happens to the people her actions affect and even our Nation. Trump and his team are doing a fantastic job of exposing Hillary's and Obama's reckless and misguided...

    When President Obama entered office, he dreamed that his hope-and-change messaging and his references to his familial Islamic roots would win over the Muslim world. The soon-to-be Nobel Peace Prize laureate would make the U.S. liked in the Middle East. Then, terrorism would decrease. But, as with his approach to racial relations, Obama's remedies proved worse than the original illness. Obama gave his first presidential interview to Al Arabiya, noting that he has Muslims in his family. He implicitly blamed America's strained relations with many Middle Eastern countries on his supposedly insensitive predecessor, George W. Bush. The new message of...

    Look what's happening now without it When I ran for president, I summed up my thinking on foreign policy with the term “peace through strength with clarity.” To help demonstrate what this meant, we created a map that clearly labeled certain nations. Britain was a friend. Russia was a rival. Various nations in the Middle East represented threats. As you might expect, the political media mocked this as simple-minded, which I still believe is hilariously ironic coming from some of the most simple-minded people you will ever have the misfortune of meeting. But what’s happening now helps to demonstrate why...

    A central tenet of President Obama’s argument regarding our national security is that we should not chastise all Muslims. He repeats often that Islam is a religion of peace. What we need to examine is whether that is just something he states over and over again -- hoping Americans will accept it as fact -- or whether that is actually true. First, before anyone jumps off the high board let’s determine the parameters. Almost everyone reading this column and/or across the world wants to believe that Islam is a religion of peace. Except, of course, for some wing-nuts: some people...

    Nearly one year ago, the United States and its international partners reached a landmark agreement with Iran that would curtail Tehran’s nuclear program in exchange for robust sanctions relief. In multiple speeches, interviews, and congressional hearings that followed, U.S. officials defended the accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), by hailing its intrusive inspections regime, pledging to continue sanctioning Iran for non-nuclear misbehavior, and asserting that the deal may spur the regime to moderate its policies.

    The internet was abuzz following a story by David Samuels on the jerk who admitted he manipulated the truth to get the president’s absurd deal with Iran accepted (accepted, that is, by the Democrats in Congress who blocked a Republican resolution to reject it). In case you missed it I’ll provide a quick summary of the salient parts, but that shouldn’t be the end of the story: the press having allowed itself to be flimflammed into being mere White House megaphones needs to redeem itself, should it care to win back even the tiniest shred of credibility. It probably won’t,...
  • $500 Billion In Lost Oil Revenues Forces Gulf Nations To Turn To Debt Markets

    04/28/2016 2:24:51 PM PDT · by bananaman22 · 9 replies
    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has projected a whopping $500 billion loss in revenue for the Gulf nations in 2016, which is 30 percent more than the $390 billion lost in 2015. The massive shortfall has crippled the gulf economies, which are facing record budget deficits and seeking external funding to overcome it. Many experts believe that $100 per barrel oil prices are history, and we might not revisit those prices for more than a decade. It implies that the recent crisis will not end as quickly as the downturn in 2007-2009. The oil-dependent nations will have to figure out...

    Christianity is demonized and its history distorted by its usurping enemies: in the West, by a host of "isms"--including leftism, moral relativism, and multiculturalism--and in the Middle East, by Islam While Christianity continues to be physically erased from the Middle East, lesser known is that its historical role and presence is also being expunged from memory. Last month a video emerged showing Islamic State members tossing hundreds of Christian textbooks, many of them emblazoned with crosses, into a large bonfire. As one report put it, ISIS was “burning Christian textbooks in an attempt to erase all traces of” Christianity from...

    Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's administration recently seized six churches as state property in the volatile southeastern part of Turkey. As World Watch Monitor reports: 'After 10 months of urban conflict in Turkey’s war-torn southeast, the government has expropriated huge sections of property, apparently to rebuild and restore the historical centre of the region’s largest city, Diyarbakir. 'But to the dismay of the city’s handful of Christian congregations, this includes all its Orthodox, Catholic and Protestant churches. Unlike the state-funded mosques, Turkey’s ancient church buildings – some of which pre-date Islam – have been managed, historically, by church foundations.' Because of this...

    Iran's defense minister on Saturday blasted Secretary of State John Kerry's for what he called his “foolish” accusations that Tehran is "destabilizing" the Middle East, AFP reports. If the United States seeks "stability" it should "leave the region and stop supporting terrorists," Defense Minister Hossein Dehghan said, quoted by the website of state television. "If John Kerry thought about these subjects, he would no longer utter nonsense and foolish words," added the Iranian minister. The comments came after Kerry, speaking on a visit to Bahrain on Thursday, condemned "the destabilizing actions of Iran," noting that the United States was taking...

From Yemen to Iraq to Gaza, Iran continues to fund and arm terrorist insurgencies that are reshaping the region. Not only Israel, but the Gulf states and their Sunni allies are preparing for potential confrontation....
