Get out your “End of Days” survival kit and check the contents. It should contain sufficient quantities of cold beer, munchies, your favorite sex toy or robot and large screen TV to watch the religious demise of civilization.

It must be the heat. We don’t get the apocalyptic crazies out in the snow and cold

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The theory was originally made famous by Christian ministers John Hagee and Mark Biltz who said the ongoing “tetrad” – four consecutive lunar eclipses which began in April 2014 with six full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.

Obama Attacks Wealthy For Big Houses Before Returning To His $8 Million Mansion

At a recent speech in South Africa, former President Barack Obama criticized wealth inequality, saying those who have more money should share their earnings with the less fortunate.

“Right now, I’m actually surprised by how much money I got,” Obama said of the more than $20 million he earned between 2005 and 2016.

Obama then chided wealthy individuals for excess, saying, “There’s only so much you can eat. There’s only so big a house you can have. There’s only so many nice trips you can take. I mean, it’s enough.”
“We’re going to have to worry about economics if we want to get democracy back on track,” Obama continued “We’re going to have to consider new ways of thinking about these problems, like a universal income, review of our workweek, how we retrain our young people, how we make everybody an entrepreneur at some level.” [snip]
