Super blood moon APOCALYPSE: Bible prophecy predicts End of World just ‘DAYS away’

Preachers believe passages from the books of Acts and Revelation suggest the blood moon will accompany an ever-approaching end of days.

The 21st century’s longest lunar eclipse will last almost two hours on July 27 and the moon will have a spectacular red tinge.

While stargazers enjoy the dazzling phenomenon, doomsdayers will be preparing for Armageddon.

The theory was originally made famous by Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz who said the ongoing “tetrad” – four consecutive lunar eclipses which began in April 2014 with six full moons in between – is the indicator of the end of earth as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12.

However the tetrad ended in September 2014 and we’re all still here. [snip]

The theory has been picked up by similar thinkers and the prophecy resurfaces weeks before every blood moon.

The “blood moon” theory is interpreted from the Book of Joel, which says: “The sun will turn into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.”

A similar passage in the Book of Revelations reads: “And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood.” [snip]

Probably only half the planet will suffer dissolution since the eclipse isn’t visible from the US. We can survive without that portion of the planet.

NOTE: July 27 – Total Lunar Eclipse. A total lunar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes completely through the Earth’s dark shadow, or umbra. During this type of eclipse, the Moon will gradually get darker and then take on a rusty or blood red color. The eclipse will be visible throughout most of Europe, Africa, western and central Asia, the Indian Ocean, and Western Australia. (http://www.seasky.org/astronomy/astronomy-calendar-2018.html)

Radiation traces from Fukushima nuclear disaster found in Californian wine ’

The horror meltdown in 2011 was sparked by a massive tsunami, causing waves that overwhelmed the plant’s reactors.

But despite fears about radioactive particles possibly entering the food and drink chain, the World Health Organisation insisted the risk outside Japan was relatively low.

But it can now be revealed that wine made in the west coast US state since the meltdown contain isotopes from the accident’s fallout. [snip]

Between the political and social policies and the wine additives, California needs to be slid into the Pacific or fenced off and sold to Venezuela. With all the sand Nevada has, it would make great beach front real estate.

Observations

Complicated? No, what it does is toss this item back into the Congress where it should have been voted on in the first place. Voters then will have the law as they want it.

Overturning Roe v. Wade would send issue back to states. Then it gets complicated

Almost half a century has passed, so forgive Dave Heinemann if he doesn’t remember every single detail of how things went down that long spring day in Topeka.

But one thing the former Kansas lawmaker hasn’t forgotten is the intensity of the 1969 debate on a measure that made abortion more accessible in the state.

“The Legislature was rewriting the state’s criminal code, and there was one section on abortion,” said Heinemann, then a Garden City Republican serving his first term in the Legislature. “That was the only section that really became a lightning rod.[snip]

Lee and others say they don’t think the Supreme Court would reverse Roe right away if conservative Judge Brett Kavanaugh is confirmed. It’s more likely, Lee said, that the court would simply uphold state laws already on the books that regulate abortion. [snip]

This only has a complication for those who want an abortion any ole time. The best part of undoing Roe is it will force those feckless bastards taking our money while shirking the kob they were sent to Congress to do.

SCOTUS made law; they’re not paid to do that. Congress ducked making law; for that they’re paid. We’re NOT paying then to insure reelection. Force them to do that for which we pay them. Vote the will of the electorate or their conscience. If their decision gets them fired, we get to put in another that votes the people’s choice.

San Francisco’s mayor won’t crack down on people using city as an outdoor toilet

San Francisco is full of … well, it.

This isn’t a reference to the trash-talking between Golden State Warriors fans and Los Angeles Laker diehards over LeBron James.

It’s not even regarding the ongoing culinary rivalry that San Francisco has with foodies in New York City.

And it certainly has nothing to do with the criticism Bay Area politics receives from conservatives across the country on a daily basis.

Rather, as a statement of fact, in the most literal possible sense — San Francisco is full of excrement.

According to a recent NBC Bay Area investigation, an alarming amount of trash, used drug needles and feces are clogging San Francisco’s streets.

The report centered around a 153-block survey of downtown, which, according to the report, “revealed trash on every block, 100 needles and more than 300 piles of feces along the 20-mile stretch of streets and sidewalks.”

Another den of socialist money grabbing is found on the opposite coast. The new font of tax loot is tap water.

NJ considers taxing tap water

Never short on ideas for things to tax, lawmakers in New Jersey are considering a tax on tap water.

The proposal is being floated by State Sen. Bob Smith D-Middlesex, who is trying to say it’s not actually a tax but a ‘user fee’.

“It is a user fee based on volume,” Smith told Fox 5’s Chasing New Jersey.

It would add 10 cents for every 1,000 gallons of water a home uses. Smith says that will only add $32 a year to the “average” water bill.

He claims the money is needed to fix a crumbling water delivery infrastructure in the state.

The state already charges a public utility franchise tax on water system operators of $0.01 per 1,000 gallons of water delivered to a consumer. That tax, which went into effect in 1984, is supposed to “ensure clean drinking water in New Jersey.” [snip]

One New Jersey columnist suggested the next proposed tax will be on breathing.

The concept is that the water is on public land which the Progressives control; that means it is their water. So pay up.
