Rampin up…

Man…  There is just so much going on right now, it’s almost impossible to touch on it all.  Lemme stop and see if I can bullet-point just some of the things that filling the headlines right this very minute…

remnants-ukrainian-army-aircraftOkay, so a Malaysian passenger airline was just shot down over Ukraine, and is being attributed to the pro-Russian “rebels”, of course.  (I love how it’s always “the rebels”…)  Quite obviously, the situation in the Ukraine isn’t simmering down, and we can see the revived Cold War propaganda machine now being increasingly merged with the war-on-terror narrative in order to maintain the escalation in this region, and, most likely, keep pushing towards the long-awaited West vs. East, Nato vs. Russia showdown…

Rockets are flying in Gaza, and IDF missiles are killing boys on beaches, cease-fires are being broken, and people keep on dying in Israel.  Troops are ready to roll and flush out the “terrorists”.  Israeli reservists are being called up.  Netanyahu keeps talking about being prepared for an “extended operation”.  Yikes….rockets

“ISIS”, or “ISIL”, or just “IS”, which seemed to suddenly arise from out of almost nowhere, is now rolling through Iraq and the Middle East, curiously well-armed and organized, posing a brand new, “Islamo-fundamentalist” threat to both Israel, and the various U.S./Nato military forces who are now stationed across the Middle East.  Lovely…

On the homefront…  Thousands of immigrant “children” keep unexplainably showing up at the Mexican border to the United States, and, unexplainably, despite all legal and historical precedent to the contrary, are for some reason being let through, creating a immigrationoverloadballballooning crisis of what to do with this sudden influx of illegal immigrants.  (I love how the media keeps on referring to them as just “children”, even though everybody knows it isn’t this massive crowd of kids that somehow made their way to the Mexican border from Central America, all alone, without their parents or anything, but in fact, whole families of people!)  Interestingly enough, while perusing good ol’ infowars today, I came across this link to an article from 3 years ago, talking about how then DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano “according to a statement by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, recently directed ICE to develop a national-level mass migration plan. The plan will outline how to address the health care, sheltering, processing, transition and disposition of large numbers of undocumented individuals who might arrive in the U.S. as the result of a mass migration, said ICE on Dec. 13.” (of 2011…)  Fascinating….

These are some crazy times we are living in, and they just keep getting crazier…  Jesus give us your strength to stand on your Word and hold to our trust in You…
