Germany to go to War with EU

EUROPE - Ursula von der Leyen will face a challenge from her own country shortly after she replaces Jean-Claude Juncker as European Commission President, as Germany plans to thwart her budget plans. The president-in-waiting will face difficulties from day one as her own German government is refusing to back the European Commission’s long-term budget proposals.

Drone Attack on Saudi Oil Field a ‘Pearl Harbor’ Moment

SAUDI ARABIA - For many of the national security teams that monitor threats on the US, the apparent drone strike Saturday on the heart of Saudi Arabia’s oil production facilities was the realization of their worst fears. Based on early reports, multiple relatively inexpensive drone devices were able to pierce Saudi defenses in a way that a traditional air force could not: flying long distances to drop potent bombs that apparently set vast portions of the Saudi petroleum infrastructure ablaze.

What You're Not Being Told About the Saudi Oil Attack

SAUDI ARABIA - We must ask ourselves how — while under the watchful eye of the world’s leading military superpower — was it possible for the world’s largest oil processing facility to be targeted so heavily and in such dramatic fashion? As stated by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), “protecting Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf producers has been a cornerstone of US foreign policy for decades” as “providing security for the oil-rich Persian Gulf region has been a US priority since World War II.”

How You Topple The Greatest Nation on Earth

USA - History shows us how great empires like Rome fell, not because they could be beaten militarily, but because they could collapse from within. When the population of that country fails to unify under a single culture, that nation's flag, only social unrest will result. All the enemies of that nation have to do is instigate protests and influence the media to lie to the people and just watch an independent republic melt away.

AfD politician threatens journalist after Hitler comparison

GERMANY - An Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) politician has walked out of an interview and threatened a journalist after he was confronted with parallels between his rhetoric and that of Adolf Hitler. Five AfD delegates said they could not tell if the line “When the turning point is reached, then we Germans won’t do things by halves, we will dispose of the rubbish heaps of modernity” was from Höcke or Hitler, and one delegate said the line was more likely to be from Mein Kampf. The revival of language long banished from conversations in Germany because of its association with the Nazi era has been a constant feature of the rise of the rightwing populist party, which originally grew out of protest against the decision to commit German taxpayer money to a bailout of Greece in 2013.

President orders 'blind unilateral escalation' in Iran

USA - Donald Trump has been warned he cannot declare war without congressional support following the bombing of Saudi Arabian oil facilities. The strikes, which destroyed half of the kingdom’s oil production capacity, were claimed by Iran-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen. On Sunday night Mr Trump said the US was “locked and loaded” and believed it knew who was truly behind the attack. But Bernie Sanders, who is gunning for the Democratic nomination for president, tweeted: “Mr Trump, the Constitution of the United States is perfectly clear. Only Congress — not the president — can declare war. And Congress will not give you the authority to start another disastrous war in the Middle East just because the brutal Saudi dictatorship told you to.”

Steve Bannon: “The 2020 Campaign ...Nastiest in American History”

USA - We are in the dark valleys like we were in the 1930s. And it takes leadership like we got out of the last time with Ronald Reagan and victory, not compromise, victory. What’s going to get us out of here now over the next five years is victory. That’s why Trump, the next time you have this gathering we’ll be in the middle of the dog fight. Do you think it’s been unpleasant and nasty to date? You haven’t seen anything. The 2020 campaign will go down as the most vitriolic and nastiest in American history. It’s very simple. We win, we save the country.

Australia's big dry

AUSTRALIA - Australia is experiencing one of its most severe droughts on record, resulting in desperate water shortages across large parts of New South Wales and southern Queensland. Dams in some parts of western NSW have all but dried up, with rainfall levels through the winter in the lowest 10% of historical records in some areas. The crisis in the far west of the state became unavoidable after the mass fish kills along the lower Darling River last summer, but now much bigger towns closer to the coast, including Dubbo [population of 40,000], are also running out of water. “There are no records of the sort of drought that we are experiencing,” says the chief executive of Dubbo council, Michael McMahon.

Saudi oil attack: a ‘game changer’ in crude prices

MIDDLE EAST - An intensifying Middle East conflict is threatening to throw the world's energy market into disarray after weekend drone attacks destroyed parts of Saudi Aramco's Abqaiq plant — one of the world's largest processors of oil — and a separate nearby oil field. On Saturday, the drone attacks, directed at Saudi Arabian oil facilities that account for nearly 10 million barrels of crude-oil production, resulted in massive plumes of black smoke emanating from the oil field, and a shutdown that could lead to about 50% of its production being at least temporarily thrown offline. Prominent crude-oil strategist Phil Flynn at Price Futures Group told MarketWatch on Sunday that the drone strike was a “big deal” that could result in a major spike in crude-oil prices, because of the potential disruption to global supplies.

Saudi Arabia: Drone attacks knocked out half its oil supply

SAUDI ARABIA - The fires led to the interruption of an estimated 5.7 million barrels in crude supplies, according to the statement, which said part of that would be offset with stockpiles. The statement said Saudi Aramco, the state-owned oil giant, would provide updated information in the next 48 hours. The Iranian-backed Houthis, who hold Yemen's capital, Sanaa, and other territory in the Arab world's poorest country, took responsibility for the attacks in the war against a Saudi-led coalition that has fought since 2015 to reinstate the internationally recognized Yemeni government. But the US blamed Iran, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo tweeting, "There is no evidence the attacks came from Yemen." UN investigators said the Houthis' new UAV-X drone likely has a range of up to 1,500 kilometers (930 miles). That puts the far reaches of both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates in range.

IRAN: We're Ready For "Full-Fledged" War

IRAN - After the United States was quick to point the finger at Iran for the early Saturday explosions that rocked Abqaiq facility and the Khurais field — forcing production to be shut and with it 5.7 million barrels a day of oil production lost — Iran has warned it stands ready for a "full-fledged" war. In spite of the Houthis claiming responsibility, a US-Saudi led investigation is apparently already focused on pinning blame on Tehran for a direct missile attack. Photos of parts resembling pieces of cruise missiles seen outside attacked Saudi oil facility have been circulating, with a number of analysts saying it's 'proof' Iran was behind it. An investigation is also reportedly focused on questions over whether Iranian proxies may have launched missiles from Iraqi soil, as a WSJ report details, citing the US investigation underway. Meanwhile, the world waits for a potential shock in energy prices as markets open at the start of this week.

Britons Believe Society Is ‘Broken’

UK - A poll has revealed how Britons feel about the systems they live under, with a sobering report revealing the majority feel that society is broken, the economy is rigged in favour of serving the rich and powerful, and traditional parties do not care about people like them. Ipsos MORI published on Friday findings from surveying more than 18,000 people in 27 countries worldwide on their sense of the democratic and social health of their nations, which revealed that dissatisfaction with the system and traditional politics was prevalent across the world and growing in Great Britain.

Britain is angrier and more violent than ever

UK - Tory MEP Daniel Hannan has launched a scathing attack on colleagues at Westminster, claiming their “repeated failure” to deliver Brexit was triggering an unprecedented crisis in UK politics. And he claimed such was the severity of what he termed the “un-Brexit crisis” that authority of the entire parliamentary system of Government was in jeopardy.

“Operation Yellowhammer” Revealed

UK - The British government has been forced to reveal its internal forecasts for the impact a no deal Brexit will have on the country, and it’s not pretty. If the country crashes out of the European Union without a deal on October 31, the British public faces decreased fresh food supplies, rising food and electricity costs, unrest across the country, and vulnerabilities in medical supplies. The five-page “Operation Yellowhammer” document — outlining the government’s preparations for leaving the European Union without a deal, based on “reasonable worst case planning assumptions” — paints a bleak picture of the consequences of a no deal Brexit. The government had resisted releasing the “sensitive”- classified document, but was forced to publish it after MPs voted 311-302 Monday that the public should know what to expect.

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
