God never intended for the Jewish people to be so caught up in Esav’s wars.

Last week, we read the final parsha, Vayechi, in Sefer Bereishit, where Yaakov Avinu calls his sons to him for a final blessing. When he gets to Shimon and Levi, he castigates them for adopting the ‘stolen craft’ of his brother Esav.

Rashi explains there:

Klei Hamas – ‘stolen tools’. This craft of murder is in their possession by theft. It is from the blessing of Esav. Yaakov admonished them, “It is his [Esav’s] craft, and you robbed him of it.”

The full verse from the Torah reads:

“Shimon and Levi are brothers, klei hamas are their weapons. Into their design may my soul not enter! With their congregation do not unite, O my honor! For in their rage they killed a man, and in their wish they hamstrung an ox. Accursed is their rage for it is mighty, and their wrath for it is harsh. I will divide them in Yaakov, and I will disperse them in Israel.”

Clearly, Yaakov Avinu is very unhappy about his sons – forbears of the Jewish people – acting like his brother Esav, and killing people left, right and centre whenever they got angry and ‘felt justified’ in doing so.

This is not the Jewish way. The voice is the voice of Yaakov – it’s the voice of prayer, the voice of emuna, the voice of knowing that God is really running the world.

Following the awful Chanuka attack in the shul in Monsey a couple of weeks ago, I was personally horrified when I saw pictures of orthodox Jews walking around toting what looked like machine guns.

Killing people is not our craft, it’s the craft of Esav. Of course, we’re meant to defend ourselves with all means possible, and to make every effort to save our life (although why moving to Israel doesn’t seem to make it on to that list is a bit of a mystery to me, I have to admit…)

But there is a world of difference between discreetly arranging security for shuls, schools and Jewish neighborhoods and strutting around for the media like Moshele the Terminator. Esav is way, way better at killing people and murdering people than we are. It’s a very dangerous game to get involved.

There are somewhere between 20-25 million people in the US with white supremacist tendencies. They are Esav mamash. A lot of them have machine guns. A lot of them are just waiting for ‘Moishele the Terminator’ to cross the line and actually kill someone, even in self-defense, so they can use that as a pretext to come after Jews all over the place.

Of course, what I’m writing here also has implications for the State of Israel, and for the whole idea that the IDF and the military is what is protecting the Jews here. This is an idea that has profound, far-reaching implications, and I certainly can’t cover off all the angles in one post.

But I will say that every time I hear apparently orthodox Jews advocating for ‘carpet bombing’ Gaza, and other extremely violent acts, I shudder. Is this really how Jews are meant to act and behave? Isn’t ‘carpet bombing Gaza’ a perfect example of klei hamas? Isn’t that just what the terrorists and the neo-Nazis would love to do to us, too?

Anything that puts Jews even tangentially into the same moral space as terrorists and Nazis has to be bad, doesn’t it?

====

These are big questions, they need to be dealt with and discussed carefully by our qualified Sages and rabbis, and let’s be clear that in the State of Israel, that’s simply not happening. Our country is run by people who have adopted the ‘stolen craft’ of Esav as their main religion, and we are all paying the price for it.

Which brings me to the next point I want to make, about how the idea that killing and murdering people is somehow the best solution to every problem gained so much traction in the first place.

Let me share something that I received via email yesterday, from a Jew in America:

“I enjoy your writings (on rivkalevy.com) but I must admit, they either entertain me or stress me.  I know you used to be “secular media” and I think you still think like the secular media, like saying Trump “illegally” killed Soleimeni.  Wow,  That’s a stretch. I really can’t believe that you think that.  The man was a terrorist that not only killed thousands of american soldiers, but terrorized his own people.

“He has killed thousands and thousands of people.  The Iranians feared and hated him.  Plus, he was about to attack more Americans.  I know you are not too fond of America, but I know many soldiers (my Dad was a career soldier) and we have jewish soldiers at [army base] that become members of our Chabad.  I care about our soldiers and thank our President for caring  and protecting them, unlike our previous President.  I feel he should be hung as a traitor. I can’t stand the man.

“We are in a war and I thank GD that He mercifully delivered us from the traitor BO and may He destroy all evil among us (leftists) and brought us a strong man like Trump, may Hashem protect him.  Yes,Trump is Esav.  Yes, the west is Esav.  Yes America is Esav, but I was born and raised here and believe me, not all Americans are the enemy.  You want an enemy.  Try Ishmael.

“It seems your hatred of Trump and America has blinded you to reality.”

My inbox is never a dull place!

So, let’s take my correspondent’s points one by one, to see if we can ascertain where the truth really lies, and what ‘reality’ actually consists of.

  1. It’s a stretch to say that Trump ‘illegally’ killed Soleimani.

“Extra-judicial killing” is a phrase that’s used by armies, militias and government sponsored ‘death squads’ around the world.

Here’s how Section 3a of the United States Torture Victim Protection Act defines extrajudicial killing:

“[A] deliberate killing not authorized by a previous judgment pronounced by a regular constituted court affording all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples. Such term, however, does not include any such killing that, under international law, is lawfully carried out under the authority of a foreign nation.

Was Soleimani brought to a ‘regular constituted court’ and given a trial that afforded him ‘all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples’? Nope.

“Extra-judicial killing” is a spin-doctor way of describing a murder where no legal due process was followed, or to say the same thing in blunter terms, an illegal murder. When Al Capone was mowing people down on the streets of Chicago that was also ‘extra-judicial killing’.

As we can see, ‘extra-judicial killing’ is an extremely murky area, and also very prone to being used and abused by individuals and agencies who don’t want to have to justify their actions or have too much public scrutiny and moral accountability.

When it comes to Soleimani’s murder, the excuse the US used to get around its own regulations as stated above, in their Torture Victim Protection Act, is that Soleimani’s killing was not an assassination, but an act of “National Self Defense”.

This is the same legal justification that Israel uses for many of its targeted killings, and the difference is that when it comes to Israel, I mostly believe it.

====

Amongst the many, many problems with ‘extra judicial murders’ tho, is that the people who are carrying them out argue that any given target’s normal legal rights as a civilian – or even as a human being! – should be totally trampled and ignored if that person is deemed to be a threat to national security.

But who is defining what that actually means?

What’s the legal basis for deciding these things? Where is the public scrutiny to ensure that immoral people with a lust for power and taste for murdering anyone who gets in their way doesn’t abuse this idea, to simply get anyone who opposes what they want murdered and out of the picture?

Also, from the viewpoint of halacha, this is not at all a simple matter. One of the 7 Noahide laws is that the non-Jewish nations should create courts of law and follow a judicial process. By definition extra-judicial killings take place outside of any legal framework.

And when non-Jewish nations don’t follow one of the 7 Noahide laws, they are subject to the death penalty. (It’s a post for another time, but if you go through each of the 7 Noahide laws and see how places like the USA are doing, as a nation, let’s just say it doesn’t stack up in their favor.)

So, is it a stretch to say that Soleimani’s killing is ‘illegal’?

I’ll let you make up your own mind.

====

  1. “[Soleimani] was a terrorist that not only killed thousands of american soldiers, but terrorized his own people.”

My view is that all senior military men are basically psychopaths, whichever country they happen to live in. Anyone who likes killing people for a living is not a ‘nice’ person, let’s be very clear on that.

But to claim that he’s killed “thousands of American soldiers” – it’s just not credible.

Wikipedia says this for the number of US soldiers killed in Iraq since 2003, which is when the US invaded Iraq:

“As of June 29, 2016, according to the U.S. Department of Defense casualty website, there were 4,424 total deaths (including both killed in action and non-hostile) and 31,952 wounded in action (WIA) as a result of the Iraq War.”

But the US wasn’t fighting Iran then, these soldiers were killed as a result of the US deciding to invade a sovereign nation. Where’s the proof that Soleimani is connected to even one of these deaths in Iraq?

Let’s take a look at Afghanistan now, where again the US decided to invade back in 2001 after 9/11.

“As of July 7, 2018, there have been 2,372 U.S. military deaths in the War in Afghanistan. 1,856 of these deaths have been the result of hostile action. 20,320 American service members have also been wounded in action during the war. In addition, there were 1,720 U.S. civilian contractor fatalities.”

Again, what does this have to do with Soleimani?

Last stop, for now, is Syria.

How many US soldiers had been killed there, by the time Trump said he’d withdraw US troops in April 2018?

Just 2.

And this is the arena where there is the most credible argument to be made that Soleimani and Iran could be behind these deaths.

====

Now, let’s flip things on their head, and let’s ask an uncomfortable question:

How many non-Americans have died in Iraq and Afghanistan and Pakistan as a result of the US deciding to launch its ‘war on terror’?

The answer comes from researchers at Brown’s University, who released their findings from the ‘Costs of War Project’ in November 2018:

“Brown’s researchers estimate that at least 480,000 people have been directly killed by violence over the course of these conflicts, more than 244,000 of them civilians. In addition to those killed by direct acts violence, the number of indirect deaths — those resulting from disease, displacement, and the loss of critical infrastructure — is believed to be several times higher, running into the millions.”

While we’re on this subject, back in 2011 Wikileaks released footage of 2 American Apache helicopters mowing down a large group of people standing in the street in the Iraq, which included many civilians and 2 Reuters journalists.

You should watch this brief clip of what happened, even though it’s from the Al-Jazeera news network, because as I keep trying to tell you, there is no such thing as a 0-100% argument. There is some truth on all sides of the discussion, and doing the birur means that we make our best effort to tease it out.

====

Releasing this clip was probably the trigger for the NSA to target Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who is currently being kept in solitary confinement (!) in Belmarsh Prison in the UK, while the USA tries to ‘extradite’ him to the US on trumped-up charges of hacking computers. Really? It all just boils down to the US trying to keep its grip on the world.

Assange is not an American citizen, he’s an Australian. And publishing footage of American helicopter pilots callously killing Iraqi civilians is the best type of journalism, and the best ‘balance’ against military abuses of power.

But the NSA and President Trump don’t think so. Trump happily signed the extradition order for Julian Assange, the journalist you see here saying ‘war corrupts the people who engage in it’ – and that’s what first clued me in that Trump is not the ‘almost Moshiach’ so many people still believe him to be.

Let’s be clear, this is not about partisan politics.

When he was President, Obama arranged the prosecution of 8 journalists and whistle-blowers under the same Espionage Act they are trying to use to prosecute Assange, including Chelsea Manning, former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling, National Security Agency whistleblower Thomas Drake, and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

And Trump is simply continuing the trend.

Back in May 2019, his administration decided to prosecute Daniel Everett Hale, a former intelligence analyst for the Air Force who shared worrying information about America’s use of drones and assassinations in its war on terror with journalist Jeremy Scahill.

Scahill later turned that information into a book and a documentary called ‘Dirty Wars’.

====

====

Here’s a synopsis:

“Investigative reporter Jeremy Scahill traces the rise of the Joint Special Operations Command. He exposes covert operations to capture and kill people, but those agents do not exist on paper.”

And they are still continuing to operate under Trump. So much for draining the swamp.

====

3) “We are in a war and I thank GD that He mercifully delivered us from the traitor BO and may He destroy all evil among us (leftists) and brought us a strong man like Trump, may Hashem protect him.  Yes,Trump is Esav.  Yes, the west is Esav.  Yes America is Esav, but I was born and raised here and believe me, not all Americans are the enemy.  You want an enemy.  Try Ishmael.”

Yes, we certainly are in a war. Not just one, many. And behind the scenes, you will find the NSA and the CIA and the American military pulling the strings of nearly all of them.

Esav excels at klei Hamas.

It’s no coincidence that these words also translate to the ‘tools of Hamas’, i.e. the terror organization on Israel’s front door step.

Let’s put all the pretense aside and deal with facts for a moment.

The US has been unrivalled in starting and pursuing wars all across the planet, for the better part of 80 years. It doesn’t matter who is in the Whitehouse, it’s the CIA and the NSA and the military, and all the powerful vested interests in the US and the UK and elsewhere who are really calling the shots in the world.

And as I’ve written about elsewhere, those vested interests excel in destabilizing third world countries, installing ‘puppet’ rulers who owe their power to American / Western support, and then asset-stripping those countries of all their natural resources and wealth.

America has been doing this for decades, all over the planet, and murdering people in their hundreds of thousands – including civilians – is a big part of how they operate.

Maybe it’s deliberate, maybe it’s just collateral damage, I don’t know. But either way, America has so much innocent blood on its hands.

I don’t blame my American correspondent for believing that the American military is not ‘the enemy’. But at this stage, there are hundreds of millions of people in the world who have seen their lives, families and countries blown apart by the US military / CIA / NSA.

And all on the flimsiest of excuses.

Human life is valuable, even when a person lives in Iraq or Afghanistan. And not all Muslims are terrorists. America wants wars, because America is good at wars, and wars are good for America’s economy.

But these wars have proven to be so very bad for everyone else.

====

4) “It seems your hatred of Trump and America has blinded you to reality.”

Sigh.

Sometimes I wonder, what’s going to happen when Israel finally shrugs off America’s bridle, and stops being America’s pawn in the Middle East.

The IDF is a ‘stolen craft’, and the Jewish people are built for prayer and peace, not war and murder. It’s just a matter of time before our true Jewish nature starts to reassert itself nationally, when we stop believing Esav’s opinion that killing people is the answer to our problems, and when more and more of us start to turn to God for a real solution to our problems.

You know that when Moshiach is finally revealed, that’s going to happen, don’t you? And then what? Will Moshiach also be portrayed as a ‘mad Jewish mullah’ with a beard, another threat to America’s ‘national security’ that will be extra-judicially targeted for extermination, God forbid?

And then what?

What side will my correspondent – and all the many orthodox Jews like her, who believe all the spin and PR and lies about America being the ‘good Esav’ – find themselves on, then?

That is the question.

A picture speaks a thousand words.

Here is a picture of two massive volcanic fields on Australia’s Sapphire Coast, known in geological parlance as the Boyd Volcanic Complex, and the Yalwal Volcanic Complex.

====

Geologists like to tell people these volcanoes were last active in the ‘Devonian Period’, i.e. 419 million years ago (sic).

Lucky thing, that, because otherwise a thoughtful onlooker might become a little perturbed by the huge amount of overlap between this picture above, of the volcanic complexes, and this picture, below, showing where the recent bush fires sprang up:

 

====

This comes from THIS website on Australian volcanoes:

“Like the mountains, the volcanoes are all on the eastern side of Australia, in a series of chains running north to south, starting 500 km of the northeastern coast (the Maer islands) to Tasmania in the south. The total length is 4400 km. That is a sizable sequence! It closely follows the Great Dividing Range, the third longest continental mountain chain in the world. There are also two chains of submarine volcanoes further to the east, off the coast.”

====

On December 17th 2019 (which happened to coincide with Chabad’s celebration of Kislev 19th this year, when the Alter Rebbe was amazingly released from the Czar’s prison after a 53 day there) – Australia registered it’s hottest day ‘ever’.

Apparently, the temperature hit 105.6 degrees.

That same day, there was a massive spike in seismic activity on December 17th, 2019:

Image from the Volcano Discovery website.

And then, very shortly after that all the bushfires went up many levels of intensity.

As I’ve written about in many other places, when there is a lot of seismic activity in volcanic regions, that leads to natural methane being released in great quantities and rising up to the surface. Methane is highly flammable. All it takes is a spark – a strike of lightning, say – and whoosh! A massive fire can instantly get started that can race across the land at an unbelievable pace, because it’s burning methane.

That’s exactly what happened in volcanic California, too, last year, when the Paradise fire occurred.

No coincidence that one of the main Australian towns affected by these bushfires is called ‘Eden’.

====

Hashem is definitely sending a message here.

Lucky, that those volcanoes in Australia are all 400 millions years old (sic). Even though here and there, there are hints that the official history of the area’s seismic and volcanic activity is a little ‘off’. Like the account of the Tathra tsunami, that hit the Sapphire Coast in the 1500s and totally wrecked the whole area.

Also, strange that a week before all that earthquake activity was recorded in Australia on December 17th, the White Island Volcano in New Zealand erupted, killing 18 people and badly burning many more.

Seismic pressure was clearly building all across that area.

====

Just like in California, the white settlers of Australia pretty much eradicated the natives, and totally disparaged all their ‘tall stories’ that clearly indicated that recent and massive earthquakes, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions were a regular feature of life. If they hadn’t committed genocide, maybe the settlers would have realised that:

There’s a very good reason that the native peoples of North America and the native peoples of Australia were nomadic, and lived a very basic life, with very few permanent buildings or institutions.

When you live life in the heart of a land that is being regularly convulsed by seismic and volcanic cataclysms, that is the safest way. And also, it’s pointless building permanent dwelling places, just to have them burn down, fall down or get washed away.

====

It’s such a shame that the early white settlers didn’t show more respect to the indigenous peoples in North America and Australia. If they had, they may have understood much earlier on that life is far more fragile, and buildings far less permanent, than it first appears.

Of course, God wanted things this way.

He had His reasons for pausing the biggest, regular earthquakes and frequent volcanoes for 200 years, so that modern people would settle on America’s West Coast, and on Australia’s East Coast, and believe that they’d live there forever.

I wonder, do the people of Australia understand that the only reason their volcanoes are pegged as being so very old, and so very inactive, is because modern scientists didn’t date them to take into account of a how massive ‘bushfire event’, like we’re currently seeing, could totally skew any hint of a ‘normal’ comparison for carbon dating?

Take a look at this article, for more about that:

Climate Change Might Break Carbon Dating

Fossil fuel emissions mess with the ratio of carbon isotopes in the atmosphere

In short, when forest fires like this set up, they make anything carbon dated at the time they are taking place appear way, way older than they actually are.

And if you want to know more about why all the dating methods used by “science” are all totally flawed in different ways, but for similar reasons, read THIS.

====

Long story short, the same natural phenomenon that has been causing the fires in California is causing the fires in Australia.

God is sending some good ol’ fashioned fire and brimstone to these areas, and the more interesting question is why? What does corrupt, Godless, hedonistic, California have in common with Eastern Australia?

I have some ideas.

But that’s a story for another time.

Yes, you can tell from that headline that this is going to be another one of my weirder posts.

But I have to tell you, what I’ve been learning about this subject over the last few months has totally blow me away – and there’s a strong Chanuka dimension, which is why I’m posting all this up now.

Every time we spin our dreidel, we are mamash changing the reality of the world, and nudging it towards redemption. I know it doesn’t look like that. But read on, because you’re about to see how it’s all connected.

====

Last year, I got into a heated discussion with one of my brothers about space aliens.

He was of the opinion that space aliens definitely exist – and he said he’d even seen something very strange in the sky, that appeared to be acting the way ‘UFOs’ are meant to act.

Off the back of that, he started researching and as is our family’s way, managed to get through an awful lot of material very fast. He sped through Roswell, found loads of pretty credible clips of ‘UFOs’ on Youtube – including one that was apparently hovering over the Temple Mount, before it instantly winked out of vision – and literally thousands of first-hand accounts of close encounters of a third kind.

====

In the meantime, I’d done a bit of digging on the Jewish sources front.

Apart from a section in the Zohar, which talks about the 7 worlds beneath ours, and the 7 ‘humanoid’ inhabitants of those worlds, it was clear that the Sages held that humanity was alone in the universe, and that planet earth was the whole focus of creation.

I was prepared to concede that ‘space aliens’ were maybe connected somehow to the Zohar’s humanoids underground, but that was as far as I was prepared to speculate.

My brother urged me to look into the subject more – because you might have noticed, I have an uncanny knack of getting to the heart of a matter pretty fast – but for my part, I demurred.

Geez, I’m weird enough already, I thought to myself. The last thing I need is to start researching all this stuff, and to turn into a bona fide believer in UFOs. That is the death knell for any serious researcher’s credibility.

====

Let me ruin the suspense a little, and tell you that aliens don’t exist.

But what I discovered is perhaps even more strange and disturbing than UFOs from outer space. Let’s see if I can unfold the story for you, now.

====

As part of my research into volcanoes and earthquakes last year, I came across a wealth of information locating a lot of ‘supernatural’ events and activities, and ‘UFO’ sightings, around the Californian and Nevada deserts.

Native American tradition spoke a great deal of great ‘spirits’ that lived underground, and that could manifest themselves in all sorts of ways. Reading through it, it was obvious to me that so many of these Native American traditions and stories were actually metaphors for massive seismic activity in America’s North West.

Earth-ripping quakes and upheavals, enormous volcanic explosions that totally transformed the topography, settlement-destroying tsunamis that defied imagination in terms of their scope and force.

And all of this had occurred well within modern times, the last 500-1000 years, and had been completely covered up or denied by the ‘official science’ that holds sway in America, and other places.

It’s a totally inconvenient truth. If Americans – and the world – really understood just how tenuous existence really is on the West Coast, it would trigger a stampede and a massive economic collapse, even before any ‘big one’ hit.

====

But while the seismic activity explained so much of the ‘supernatural’ air around the Indian reservations and the Mojave Desert, it certainly didn’t explain all of it.

I had to admit, there did seem to be an awful lot of strange activity occurring around these volcanoes.

The Native Americans considered these volcanic grounds to be sacred, and many of the Indian Reservations were located around or near volcanoes, as a result. I started to wonder if maybe the Zohar’s ‘little grey men’ were somehow connected to all these sightings of strange unidentified flying objects, that witnesses had seen flying into volcanic craters and diving in and out of the sea.

Nah. That’s way too ‘out there’.

And so with that, I closed the file on the volcanoes, and moved on to other things.  But as we’ll see, everything seems to be connected.

====

A little while back, as I wrote about HERE, I started to get a little obsessed with what had really happened to the Yemenite Children, 10,000 babies who were stolen from their parents by the State of Israel back in the 50s and 60s.

(Apparently, there is another documentary coming out about that this week on Israeli TV. Now that the arch-villain Shimon Peres is finally dead, some of this awful information is finally starting to see the light of day, but we’ll see how far Israeli TV is actually allowed to go.)

Long story short, Peres agreed to ‘sell’ these kids to the CIA for some sort of ‘experiment’ in the 1950s, in return for Israel being given access to the technology required to build a nuclear bomb.

That much is pretty much an open secret, thanks to the work of the late Barry Chamish, who unearthed a great many pieces of the puzzle (and was probably killed for getting too close to the truth). But while Chamish was right about a lot of things, there were a lot of things that he still hadn’t figured out correctly, by the time he was bumped off in his apartment in Miami.

====

So, I was pondering on all this, because newborn babies require a great deal of care, and they make very time and cost intensive subjects for experimentation.

I’m going to gloss over this part of the story, at least for now, but my research led me to something called MK Ultra. You can read some basics about MK Ultra HERE – but understand that the full sordid details of what really occurred with this project are still being suppressed, even today.

MK Ultra was basically a ‘mind control’ project that was top, top secret, administered by the CIA (and probably also the NSA, which is even more ‘top secret’) which basically involved ‘breaking’ children’s minds by subjecting them to the most horrendous torture and cruelty it’s possible to imagine.

Again, I’m glossing over this here, as it’s not the main focus of this piece, and because it’s also directly linked to the ‘deep state’ problem we’re all still dealing with today.

====

But what became very clear to me, as I researched MK Ultra, was that the project was basically being run by a bunch of infamous Nazi ‘doctors’, who the US had spirited over to America at the end of World War II, to try to benefit from the knowledge they’d gained by torturing and murdering countless human beings in their scientific experiments.

The US had even given safe passage to demonic individuals like Klaus Barbie and Josef Mengele – this latter popped-up as the satanic ‘Dr Green’ in the child torture and murder experiments being conducted as part of MK Ultra.

====

While I was in the middle of researching all this, the Jeffrey Epstein story suddenly erupted into view.

As I wrote HERE, Epstein was arrested very shortly after a massive earthquake struck China Lake – the top secret underground US Navy facility in the Mojave Desert, where so many of the MK Ultra experiments had taken place – on July 4th, 2019.

I became totally engrossed with the Epstein affair, and I was convinced that it was linked to all this stuff I’d been learning about an out-of-control deep state that was basically out-of-control CIA / NSA / MI6 / Spooks with huge budgets and total immunity from prosecution.

I started reading up on the CIA, and I came across a book called ‘The Octopus’, which tells the story of how a journalist called Danny Casolaro was murdered back in August 1991, for getting too close to what we would now call the ‘deep state’. Here’s the text from the back of the book:

“The Octopus was Casolaro’s name for an intelligence cabal he had documented in his unfinished book….Casolaro’s research looked at bizarre murders among the Cabazon Indians involving administrators of the tribal land; the privatization of CIA dirty tricks through the notorious Wackenhut security firm, the policemen for both the Cabazons and the mysterious Area 51, home of spy planes and rumored UFOs; Vietnam MIAs; manufacturing corruption at Hughes Aircraft; the human genome project; even the Illuminati secret societies of the 18th century. The list was quite long, by the time the Octopus had pulled Casolaro under.”

It sure was.

====

What really caught my attention was the salient fact that ‘rogue’ elements in the CIA had effectively taken over Indian Tribal lands.

They’d been the defacto bosses on many reservations for many decades, like the reservation belonging to the Cabazon, because the reservations were effectively beyond the reach of mainstream law enforcement agencies.

Or to put this into plain English, the CIA could create all the weapons and drugs they wanted on tribal Indian lands, beyond the jurisdiction and oversight of the American legal system. And they did.

Then, another penny dropped: At least part of the reason that so many of these UFO sightings and supernatural phenomena were happening around ancient Indian lands is because that’s where the CIA / NSA / Wackenhut experiments were happening – totally off-radar, and totally invisible to any official government oversight.

I haven’t researched this part, but my feeling is that many of these experiments were a continuation of trying to ‘biologically engineer’ the perfect soldier, the perfect mind-controlled slave. To say they were totally immoral and unethical goes without saying. And again, there is almost certainly a link between all this stuff and what Epstein was up to with all his DNA research, before they knocked him off.

====

Ok, so now I was back to the aliens, or the UFOs.

Just as the US had brought over SS monsters like Mengele in the name of ‘science’ after the end of World War II, is it conceivable that they’d also brought over other Nazis, to work on other scientific projects?

A quick bit of research quickly turned up Operation Paperclip, which was the ‘visible’ part of the operation to do this, and which I wrote about HERE.

As I was researching Operation Paperclip, I noticed repeated mentions of the Nazi’s ‘foo fighters’ – saucer-shaped flying objects with strange propulsion systems, that had been increasingly harassing Allied bombers towards the end of the war.

Foo fighters sounded suspiciously like UFOs.

Once you understand that the CIA covertly brought over thousands of nazi scientists to the US after World War II, and had them work on all sorts of top-secret projects, many of which were totally off the radar to anyone outside of the CIA, so much of the fuzz starts to disappear out of the picture.

====

The Roswell ‘UFO crash’ happened in 1947. Roswell is pretty close to Area 51.

How better to disguise all this top secret Nazi research and science that the US wasn’t meant to have, than to pretend it was all down to ‘UFOs’ and aliens? That got the CIA of the problem of having to admit the awful truth that it had given thousands of committed Nazis – the scum of the scum – a free pass to continue their work on American soil. And it also avoided awkward questions about their other totally immoral and destructive activities across the globe.

Just blame the ‘space aliens’ and have done! Really, it was a stroke of genius.

All the pieces seemed to fit, and my brother grudgingly agreed that he was ‘75% convinced’ that the UFOs were really just Nazi flying sauces, now under the auspices of the American deep state. But I like to be sure of my facts, so I decided to order a few books on the subject, just to make sure.

One of them is called ‘The Hunt for Zero Point – Inside the classified world of antigravity technology’, by Nick Cook, written when he was the Aviation Editor for Jane’s Defense Weekly. Cook is a serious journalist, with a serious reputation, and he spent a decade researching the book before writing it.

====

Initially, Cook started off from a place of total skepticism.

When he started researching the book, any mention of taking ‘antigravity’ science seriously was like the kiss of death for any serious researcher or journalist. Slowly, over the course of 10 years, Cook’s skepticism transformed, as he started to uncover a lot of information that had been deliberately buried in disinformation and lies for decades.

The first 200 pages basically cover Cook’s attempts to track down ‘antigravity’ technology in places like NASA, Lockheed Martin and Northrup, the companies who were building the ‘state of the art’ spy planes like the B-2 stealth bomber that were being secretly flown out across Area 51.

The turning point comes when Cook decides to switch his focus away from American aerospace, and over to Nazi Germany. He meets a Polish researcher called Igor Witkowski, who takes him over to the Wenceslas Mine in Poland, an underground Nazi research facility, where some of the most ‘top secret’ stuff was being worked on.

Let’s press pause for a moment, to set out the scene a little more, before we continue.

====

Already from 1943, many of the commanders of the German forces realized they were going to lose the war, it was just a matter of when. The exceptions to this rule were Hitler and his small group of acolytes, plus the SS, who by the end of the war numbered 800,000 people, up from 240,000 people when the war began, in 1939.

The SS were part of Himmler’s empire. Like many of the leading Nazis, Himmler believed in the supernatural, but derived his ‘strength’ from the dark side, as opposed to searching for the Divine light of Hashem in the world. Unlike most scientists in the West, the Germans didn’t hold by Einstein’s physics, because he was a Jew.

As it turns out, at least on this point, they were right.

Einstein and his atheist-minded colleagues were blinded to the real way the world works and operates, because they negated and denied the spiritual dimension to science. Their scientific formulas and theories worked well enough to explain what they could ‘see’ with their eyes in the physical world, but they didn’t uncover the foundations of the energetic principles that the world is really built upon.

Sadly, the Germans didn’t have the same blinders on.

====

In their mad determination to win World War II, whatever it took, the Germans were prepared to explore any avenue that could lead to breakthrough technology, however ‘unthinkable’ or ‘impossible’ the science behind it was meant to be.

From 1943 onwards, as the Luftwaffe and the other parts of the German war machine started to prepare for defeat, the SS took over all the ‘high tech top secret’ stuff, and consolidated it’s control over all the cutting-edge science being worked on. The SS moved their operations underground and into mountains in Lower Silesia, and in places like the Skoda Works and MittelWerk, the scientific experiments continued right up until the end of World War II.

Secrecy was of the utmost importance, and secrecy was easily maintained, because the SS overseers simply used ‘disposable’ human beings from the concentration camps to build their facilities and their technology. These human beings were also experimented on, and with such a disregard for human life and even basic morality, things progressed very quickly in the SS R+D research facilities.

Dr Hans Kammler was Himmler’s second-in-command, with direct responsibility for keeping a grip on the operational side of all the high tech. Kammler is credited with sketching out the plans for Auschwitz; for making the changes required to enable the death camps to kill Jews more efficiently, and with a whole bunch of other enormous war crimes.

He was also in direct control of all the Nazi’s hi-tech experiments that the Allies were so keen to get their hands on, at the end of World War II. No-one has ever heard of Kammler, because in the closing days of the war, he struck a deal with Allen Dulles and the OSS (forerunner of the CIA) to relocate to the US and begin a new life there, in return for delivering all his hi-tech secrets.

====

This part is so important, let’s make sure you really understand what I told you:

Kammler was the architect of Auschwitz, the leveler of the Warsaw ghetto, and the second in command of the SS, the most rabid, evil and demonic part of Hitler’s war machine. Kammler’s scientists had cracked antigravity technology by the end of the war, and they’d build prototype ‘flying sauces’, laser beam weapons, and many other things, besides.

Because so much of their technology was totally ‘beyond’ what Western-trained physicists could get their head around, the OSS (proto-CIA) simply couldn’t work with the Nazi’s game-changing science. So, Dulles et al made a deal with the devil, and transported the most corrupt elements of the Third Reich en masse to the shores of America.

These Nazis swapped one top-secret underground facility for another, one hollowed-out mountain for another, and simply continued their work in the US, after the war, with Kammler continuing to ‘organise’ things from behind the scenes.

That same Kammler who designed Auschwitz and razed the Warsaw ghetto.

Together with thousands of his fellow SS Nazis and scientists.

====

The core of Hitler’s Third Reich became the heart of America’s deep state. That explains an awful lot, doesn’t it?

====

Ok, back to the science, because we still didn’t get to the most mind-boggling part of the story.

What the Germans basically discovered is something called a torsion field. If you look online, you’ll find some very big attempts to smear torsion fields as ‘pseudoscience’. That’s because there are now two types of science in the world:

  • Western science, based on Einstein, which basically denies the spiritual dimension.
  • ‘German’ science, based on the Quantum Mechanics of Max Planck, which embraces the spiritual dimension as a means to an end.

In their experiments at the Wenceslaus Mine, the Nazis had created something called ‘The Bell’, which to oversimplify was basically two rotating metal disks stacked on top of each other, that were spinning very fast in opposing directions. These disks were filled with metallic liquids, but the details are sketchy because the SS killed all the 62 (non-SS) scientists who were working on the project, just before delivering it over to the Americans.

(And that level of secrecy has been enforced ever since, which is why no-one ever really talks about this. It’s like the mafia – once you’re in, you’re in for life.)

====

Here’s how the physicist in Cook’s book describes a torsion field:

“[Particles] appeared to slow down when they entered a torsion field. Since the zero-point energy field is composed of billions of tiny fluctuations of energy that pop in and out of existence every split second, relentlessly and infinitely, anything that can mesh with those fluctuations… can tap into them and extract energy from the field.”

====

====

This means that a torsion field could extract a supply of unlimited, free energy – which could totally transform the world.

But, that same power supply could also be used to create the most powerful weapon ever known, dwarfing the destructive ability of even the most powerful nukes.

But that’s not all. Torsion fields are also directly connected to the space-time dimension, because there is something about their action that goes beyond the dimensions of the physical world, to access ‘an alternative dimension’. Torsion fields enable things to levitate, can make metal became ‘transparent’, can metamorphose one metal into another, i.e. turn steel into lead, iron into gold, and can even access a realm ‘above time’.

Before you scoff at this, let me just continue with the physicist’s description of torsion fields, as we’re about to get to the part where Rebbe Nachman’s dreidel makes an appearance.

“A torsion field [the physicist continued] was best imagined as a rotating whirlpool. If you created one of these whirlpools, dipped it into the zero-point energy field, the seething mass of latent energy that existed on an almost undetectable level all around us, there was evidence to show that it reacted in an almost magical way, by directing the flow of energy. Anything that rotated, even a child’s spinning top…was capable of generating a torsion field.” [Emphasis mine.]

====

Yesterday, I got my wooden dreidels for Chanuka, and I’m pleased to report they spin very nicely.

So I read that sentence, and my mouth fell open. Every time I spin the dreidel, I am creating a tiny torsion field – this phenomenon that enables us to ‘jump’ out of our physical space-time dimension and to access an alternative, higher dimension.

That was totally awesome by itself. But there’s more. I went back to my copy of Rabbi Nachman’s Wisdom, and there, on page 140, I found this:

“A favorite subject of the philosophers[1] is the order of creation. They may ask why a star is worthy of being a star while other things are consigned to a lower realm….The world is a rotating wheel. It is like a dreidle, where everything goes in cycles…Everything goes in cycles, revolving and alternating. All things interchange, one from another and one to another, elevating the low and lowering the high.

“All things have one root. There are transcendental beings such as angels, which no connection with the material. There is the celestial world, whose essence is very tenuous. Finally, there is the world below, which is completely physical. All three come from different realms, but all have the same root. All creation is like a rotating wheel, revolving and oscillating….

“For the world is like a rotating wheel. It spins like a dreidle, with all things emanating from one root.”

==

Before I continue with Rabbi Nachman, his rotating, revolving and oscillating wheel EXACTLY describes the discs used to create a torsion field, with one turning in one direction, and one in the other. This is the basis of the ‘flying saucers’, too. (Take a look at this article for more diagrams from the original invention of Viktor Schauberger).

It’s hard to describe just how awesome this actually is. Rabbenu was describing torsion fields, and how they bring the transcendental, celestial and physical ‘dimensions’ together more than 200 years ago. Something that even now, mainstream science is a million miles away from grasping.

But there’s more. Rabbenu then continues:

====

“This is why we play with a dreidle on Chanuka. Chanuka is an aspect of the Holy Temple. The primary concept of the Temple is the revolving wheel. The Temple was in the category of “the superior below and the inferior above.” God lowered His presence into the Temple and this is “the superior below”….

“The Temple is therefore like a dreidle, a rotating wheel, where everything revolves and is reversed. The Temple refutes philosophical logic….God brought His presence into the Temple, and so destroyed all philosophical logic….He made the fact [aka ‘the data’] contradict philosophical logic.

“Such logic is crushed by the dreidle, the rotating wheel, which brings the “superior below and the inferior above.”

====

There is so much more to say, and Rabbenu’s words continue on for a couple more pages.

I highly recommend you go and read it for yourself, on pages 141-7 of Rabbi Nachman’s Wisdom, #40. Rabbenu mentions again and again, that “this revolving wheel is the dreidle”, and that “Redemption is also an alternating cycle.”

We covered a lot of ground, so let me try to sum up the main parts, below.

====

  • There are no aliens – the UFOs and flying saucers are versions of Die Glocke – the SS-created antigravity technology that was christened ‘The Bell’.
  • The SS took over all the Nazis’ hi-tech projects from 1943 on.
  • Dr Hans Kammler was #3 in the Nazi war machine by the end of the war. He disappears as of May 1945, never to be heard of ever again. The Nuremburg Trials don’t so much as mention his name. Don’t you find that curious?
  • The forerunner of the CIA, the OSS, brought literally thousands of the worst SS scum over to the US wholesale, to continue work on their secret technology programs. Some of them, like Werner Von Braun, were more ‘visible’. Others, like Yosef Mengele, the infamous ‘Dr Green’ overseeing the MK Ultra project, and Hans Kammler were never acknowledged – for very obvious reasons.
  • These Nazis became the heart of the ‘Deep State’, i.e. the covert operations of the spooks and the former spooks who are really running the world from behind the scenes.
  • The UFO phenomenon only began shortly after WWII ended, and was particularly prevalent near Area 51, the top secret base were so many of the SS scientists were working on Die Glocke, and other technology.
  • Die Glocke was based on two stacked metal disks, filled with something like mercury (at least initially) that revolved very fast in opposing directions. This created something called a Torsion Field.
  • Torsion Fields perturb the zero-point latent energy field (aka ‘quantum foam’) that is made up of billions of tiny fluctuations in energy that pop in and out of existence every split second.
  • This zero-point field contains literally infinite, free amounts of energy, that could transform the world in tremendously good ways – or be used to create the most destructive weapons ever known.
  • Torsion fields enable things (and people…) to levitate, they can metamorphose steel into lead, render metal invisible – and enable access to a dimension, or dimensions, above the space-time dimension of our physical world.
  • Einsteinian physics (aka ‘philosophy’) simply can’t account for these facts on the ground, and state that these phenomena are ‘impossible’.
  • Rabbenu explains that spinning the dreidel creates a torsion field (but not in those words).
  • Rabbenu’s torsion field transforms one thing into another, and bring the three dimensions of transcendental, celestial and physical (space-time) together around one root, i.e. the dreidel / torsion field.
  • The Temple is connected to this, where God ‘placed His glory’ into the space-time dimension while still being totally above even the transcendental plane.
  • Rabbenu tells us – repeatedly – that the world is a ‘revolving wheel’ that oscillates and radiates energy, and that this revolving wheel is also the dreidel. Spinning the dreidel creates a torsion field.
  • Redemption is also directly connected to this ‘alternating cycle’, and to spinning the dreidel, and to the Temple being rebuilt.

====

The last thing to mention, for now, is that Rabbi Berland alluded to all this, a couple of weeks ago.

You can read that HERE.

Not for the first time, I’m in total awe of the wisdom of the true Breslov Rabbis. Rabbenu said that at the end, there would be so many ‘false messiahs’ and false rabbis and rebbes, all trying to convince the world they were the real deal.

But, he hinted that his followers wouldn’t be fooled by these charlatans, because they will have already drunk some of the ‘Real Hungarian Wine’. And in this lesson, referenced above, we certainly got a big dose of that good stuff!

Chanuka sameach – and go spin your dreidel as much as you can! It’s literally changing the world.

[1] The word ‘philosophers’ can be used interchangeably with ‘scientists’.

Everything has a deeper reason.

Two years ago, the fake ‘Yeshiva World’ news site ran a shocking!!!! ‘expose’ into Rabbi Berland spinning a dreidel in the middle of the Maariv prayers.

Because Yeshiva World News is written by a bunch of morons who apparently don’t know a lot about the deeper reasons for many Jewish customs (and also apparently can’t spell), they believed that this was something ‘shocking’, that all their readers should know about, and be encouraged to condemn in the comments section!!!!

We already wrote HERE about how sites like Yeshiva World News are creating new anti-Semites with almost every headline they pen, and as the violent anti-semitism heats up in the US, it seems a good time for many Jews there – and elsewhere – to do some serious soul-searching about how attitudes and practices in the orthodox Jewish community may be greatly contributing to the problem.

Because nothing  is stam, a coincidence, or an accident.

Everything is from Hashem, everything contains a message, about what we might need to work on, acknowledge, recognise, change or fix.

God is so merciful, God is so compassionate. All He wants is for us to just be honest, and to admit that we’re really not acting the way we should be, and to have a little more humility, and to accept that we’re really not the ‘religious big shots’ we like to pretend we are.

That’s all He wants from us, some candor, and an admission that we are guilty of really not being very good Jews!!!

Because as soon as we admit that, we’ll understand that we can’t do this by ourselves, and we’ll start looking for that one in a generation, that Tzaddik, who is really going to help us get through this gilgul in one piece, get us to the promised land, and get us into the world-to-come.

====

In the meantime, a couple of weeks ago the Rav gave over a very interesting lesson, which you can read HERE, where he explained some of the deeper mystical significance behind spinning the dreidel. He said:

The dreidel is linked to redemption

…”You redeemed the tribe of Your inheritance.” Rabbenu (Rebbe Nachman) says that the first letters of this [in Hebrew], Galta Shevet Nahalat Har (Tzion) are Gimel, Shin, Nun and Hei – the letters written on the four sides of the dreidel.

THIS IS NES GADOL HAYAH SHAM (A GREAT MIRACLE OCCURRED THERE).

But now, the Zionists changed it to a Pey.

(The Shin on the dreidel stands for sham – ‘there’, i.e. Eretz Yisrael.  Jewish communities in the diaspora still have driedels with the letter Shin, but when the secular Zionists created the State of Israel, they decreed that the ‘Shin’ should be switched to a Pey – which stand for po, here. I.e., that the great miracle happened here, in Eretz Yisrael.)

We must change it back to Shin, because great secrets are bound up with this!

This is related to the verse, “You have redeemed the tribe of Your inheritance, this mountain of Tzion You have dwelled within it.”

Because through [spinning] the dreidel, the Beit HaMikdash will be built.

Because when we spin the driedel, we spin the letters Gimmel, Shin, Nun and Hey around, and by way of this, Mount Tzion will be rebuilt – only by way of the driedel. We need to spin the dreidel every day, we need to be spinning the driedel every moment, every second.

====

If I’ve learnt one thing about true tzaddikim, it’s that you should try to take whatever they say as seriously as possible. Literally, whole worlds depend on this. So then, I ran into a problem:

Where am I going to find a dreidel in Israel that has a Shin instead of a Peh?

It’s really not an easy thing, as of course every dreidel here has a peh, for po – here, the miracle happened here, in the Land of Israel.

Yesterday, an email landed in my inbox offering me a hand-carved dreidel from the Galilee with a ‘shin’ for just 22 shekels! Result!!!

So, I’m ordering mine today, and in the meantime, I thought I should put the details up here too, in case anyone out there would also like to fulfill the words of the Tzaddik HaDor, and spin their dreidel with a Shin, on Chanuka.

====

Here’s the details:

Hand made wood every piece is unique.

When more of us turn away from the fake news sites, and the fake blog sites, who really just confuse and mislead so very many people, and who obscure the truth by trying to push themselves forward, instead of humbly guiding people towards the sources of real Torah, real truth, in the world, Moshiach will come.
I’m not a betting woman, but I’m still willing to wager that Rabbi Berland knows far more about why spinning a dreidel is important that YWN. And so this Chanuka – for the first time ever! – I’m going to give it a shot.

Ah, Torah sources. Where would we all be, without them?

I’m not going to spend a lot of time on this, as I’ve written about it many times before. There are a whole bunch of Torah sources and commentaries that explain what credentials a potential candidate for ‘Moshiach’ needs to have, in order to be a contender for the job. Some of them are well known, some of them are less well known.

Let’s start with the well-known sources, first, primarily Rambam. The below is the uncensored text, that hasn’t been manipulated to ‘fit’ anyone specific:

“If a king arises from the house of David who studies Torah and does mitzvos like his ancestor David, according to the written and oral Torah, and he compels all of Israel to walk in it and strengthen its weak points, and he fights the wars of Hashem, then he has chezkas (presumed to be) moshiach. If he does and succeeds, and subdues all the surrounding nations, and he builds the Temple, and gathers the exiles of Israel, then he is definitely moshiach.”

====

RAMBAM’S MOSHIACH CHECKLIST:

  1. Has to be from the house of David, i.e. a descendant of King David.
  2. Has to study Torah and do Mitzvot like King David, (the most humble of men, who spent his whole life calling out to Hashem and doing hitbodedut, which is how we got the book of Psalms.)
  3. Has to act totally in accordance with the written and Oral Torah – i.e. this can’t be someone who bends the rules here and there. Moshiach acts 100% according to halacha, 100% of the time.
  4. Has to compel all of Israel to walk in the Torah – i.e., has to bring many people back in real teshuva, and to keeping the Torah’s laws. It’s interesting to note that it says he has to compel ALL of Israel, not just a majority.
  5. Has to strengthen the observance of the Torah’s weak points – like, encouraging people to pray, and to really put Hashem in the picture, and to have emuna, which is definitely still a ‘weak point’, even 15 years after the Garden of Emuna first hit the bookshelves.
  6. Has to fight the wars of Hashem.

#6 is open to wide interpretation. Is the ‘fight’ literal, at the head of an army? Is it spiritual, against the forces of darkness? Does it mean both?

====

If someone can tick all these boxes, then he can be given the status of the chezkat Moshiach, a potential candidate for Moshiach.

So, say for example you think Tony Robbins could be Moshiach. I mean, the guy has helped so many people out with his classes; he’s given out a lot of solid, good advice. He has 4 million people following him on Youtube – what more do you want?! 

Bring Tony Robbins back to this checklist, walk the idea through the above 6 points, and if he fits the criteria, you may have a potential, or chezkat Moshiach on your hands. And if not? Then he isn’t.

It really is that easy.

But, we aren’t done yet, with the sources on how to identify a potential Moshiach.

====

RAMBAM CONTINUES:

“If he does and succeeds, and subdues all the surrounding nations, and he builds the Temple, and gathers the exiles of Israel, then he is definitely Moshiach.”

So, before a candidate can move from chezkat to definite Moshiach, he has to:

  1. Succeed in points 4-6 above – i.e. bring all of Israel back in teshuva, strengthen the observance of the Torah’s weak points and successfully fight the wars of Hashem.
  2. Subdue all the surrounding nations – again, this could be widely interpreted. Is it a military subjugation? Are the nations ‘subjugated’ to the Jewish people because hard as they try to nuke us or bomb us, the chezkat Moshiach’s prayers is making sure that just can’t happen? Does it mean they recognise that the land of Israel finally belongs to the Jewish people? Who knows.
  3. Builds the Temple.
  4. Gathers in the exiles of Israel.

====

THE RAMBAM THEN CONTINUES:

“If he did not succeed to this degree or was killed, he surely is not the redeemer promised by the Torah. Rather, he should be considered as all the other proper and complete kings of the Davidic dynasty who died.”

Let’s tread carefully and respectfully here, but this makes it clear that great as he was, the late Lubavitcher Rebbe was a chezkat Moshiach, who didn’t complete the task, and therefore is “surely not the redeemer promised by the Torah.”

====

But we aren’t done yet, with our Torah sources for how to identify a potential Moshiach. Remember this?

====

We need to add to our Moshiach checklist:

  1. He will reveal himself gradually, and not in one shot (Sanhedrin 97 and Rashi.)
  2. He has to come from both chutz l’aretz and Israel. (Arbabanel.)
  3. He’s going to be accompanied by police and sit in jail (Ramban and Ramchal.)
  4. He’s going to be the subject of an enormous controversy (Rebbe Nachman.)
  5. His coming will involve huge tests of emuna, and emunat tzaddikim (Rebbe Nachman.)
  6. Even when he’s sitting in prison, his opponents are going to continue to humiliate and shame him (Pesikta Rabba.)

(See the full sources HERE.)

====

Let’s go back to Tony Robbins – great guy! Really inspirational speaker! Helped so many people, with his Youtube Channel!

Tony never made it over to Israel, so he can’t be Moshiach.

As far as I know, he’s never spent time in jail, so he can’t be Moshiach. 

Most people like Tony a lot, if they’ve actually heard of him. He certainly doesn’t have any vociferous, demented public detractors setting up Facebook groups urging people to steer clear of him – so he can’t be Moshiach.

He hasn’t been in prison, or continually and publically humiliated – so he can’t be Moshiach.

But please, go right ahead and keep buying his CDs and lectures, if you’re enjoying them, because he’s still a great motivational speaker, who is apparently helping so many people…..

====

Ah, Torah sources.

Where would be without them?

We’d be in a mad, crazy world where pretty much anyone could be claimed as ‘Moshiach’, and where false messiahs would abound, each of which would only serve to keep pushing off the geula and the real Moshiach even further into the distance.

God forbid.

The last two weeks, I’ve been finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning.

I’m generally sleeping OK, and enough. I’m in good health, baruch Hashem. I have a lot of ‘stuff’ to be getting on with… But it’s a struggle to throw the covers back and get out of bed.

I know why.

Deep down, I’m feeling pretty scared of what the future holds.

====

While pointless ‘politics’ is all anyone really seems to be thinking about or discussing, there are real changes going on in the world that we can all feel, but no-one is really talking about them.

The world is still shaking – a 6.4 earthquake just hit Albania, in Southern Europe, doing major damage to a number of buildings and roads, and even causing a number of deaths.

====

Did you know about that, from your MSM, before I just told you?

Nope. Didn’t think so.

Now, the quakes are fanning out across Europe, large parts of which is also (not coincidentally….) experiencing ‘extreme’ weather events. This headline kind of says it all:

Storms in France, Greece and Italy leave ‘biblical destruction’.

The Alps have been experiencing some record-breaking, heavy snowfall recently. You won’t know that unless you live in that area or follow alternative news channels, because this fact goes against the whole ‘global warming’ fake news thing. But when you have a lot of snow on mountains, plus the prospect of 4.0+ earthquakes in the area, then you are looking at a high possibility of avalanches.

====

Over in the US, the wildfires in California have started up again, this time called ‘The Cave’ fire.

What’s interesting, is how the news sites are telling their viewers that this fire literally ‘exploded overnight’ – but then immediately try to blame that on fake news global warming.

I’ve mentioned this elsewhere, but it’s probably a good time to remind you that when there is a lot of seismic activity, that kind of ‘shakes loose’ all the natural methane that’s trapped underground, and that starts to rise to the surface.

Methane is highly flammable.

All it takes is a spark, and poofff!! A whole area can instantly light up. I think that’s also what’s causing the wildfires that are still burning all over Israel, too, but which (BH) have currently been contained, because there is no massive winds whipping them all over the place.

No-one talks about this, because it’s not ‘politics’. It’s just God controlling the weather, and the seismic activity, and who the heck wants to mention that?!

====

There are other things, too, that if you know to look for them, build out the picture that there is a very strange ‘vibe’ coming down to the planet at the moment, or what our sages often refer to as a ruach, or spirit.

So many people are being viciously attacked by wild animals, especially dogs, that it’s almost not news anymore. But a few days ago, a 59 year old woman in Texas was mauled to death outside a house by a bunch of wild pigs….

That’s kinda unusual, no?

And also kinda symbolic, because we all know that the ‘pig’ is Esav, that most traif of pretend-kosher creatures.

====

And then, there’s all the stuff I’m trying to deal with internally, that is also scaring me at the moment.

Like, trying to get my People Smarts course together… and trying to launch the book that goes with it… and trying not to get my hopes up too much that this, finally, will mark the turnaround where I’ll actually discover what it is God really wants me to do with my life and (whisper it….) that I may even get paid for.

The only reason that matters is because my family has decided, collectively, that we want to move back to the holy madness that is the Musrara neighborhood of Jerusalem, and even renting there is CRAZY expensive.

Right now, the apartment we are in is great for us, and the rent is reasonable. But the area is pretty ‘dead’ spiritually, and after two years of living back in civilization, where people pick up their own trash and most families have way less than 12 kids, I’m yearning to get back to a place where my neighbors know there is more to life than just cooking a great roast for Shabbat. Or politics….

So, there’s also a lot of anxiety around that, too, which keeps bubbling up when I’m talking to God.

====

And then, there are the non-stop efforts by the State of Israel to start another war in this region, to try and take everyone’s minds off the fact that the political experiment here has effectively checkmated itself out of existence.

Nothing like a massive war, to get the nation rallying around the idea of a ‘unity government’!!!

Who cares, that so many people, so many Jews, could get wounded or killed, if the Muslim nations decide to retaliate massively!!!

Let’s keep the circus going for as long as we can, let’s keep talking about politics as the cure for all ills, to take everyone’s mind off the fact that God is actually running the world, and deciding things!!!

====

There are very good reasons why taking the terrorists on in Gaza may be a very bad idea.

You can sum it up like this:

Israel is surrounded by literally hundreds of thousands of rockets. The Iron Dome is very easily overwhelmed, and if the terrorists start firing multiple barrages of rockets at us, they will kill and injure a lot of people, God forbid.

At the same time, there is no way the nations of the world will ever let Israel really clean up the problem in Gaza, so any war would be totally ‘cosmetic’, and just for public opinion, just so the politicians can keep the whole circus going a little while longer.

====

Personally, I increasingly don’t think it’s worth risking Jewish lives just to give a politician a campaign slogan that they are tough on terror.

Personally, I’m really praying and hoping that Rabbi Berland is going to be able to continue to sweeten all this warmongering, because war doesn’t solve any problems, unless it’s a ‘war’ that God wants and has commanded, like Joshua’s conquering of the holy land.

How did we all get so brainwashed into believing that killing people en masse is the best way to solve our problems?

I believe in defending ourselves where appropriate, in a measured way. But recently, I’ve been asking myself some hard questions, about whether killing large swathes of ‘enemy’ civilians is really what God wants from the Jewish people.

Killing people – any people – should be the very last option on the table, and only if the alternative is that they would kill us, God forbid.

Killing people is a ‘feral pig’ kinda thing to do – an ‘animal’ thing to do – it’s really not a holy Jewish response.

So, I’m also scared that there are bunch of angry, violent fools with zero yirat shemayim ready to rush in where Sanhedrins fear to tread.

Until I remember that God is actually running the world, (even though no-one really talks about Him so much), and that nothing will happen that God doesn’t want to happen.

====

And in the meantime, life goes on.

I’m trying to deal with all this by keeping my head down, and trying to continue with my routine, as best I can. I keep reminding myself of the words of the Rav, that Gog and Magog is only going to happen in 200 years time, but the good things can already start now.

Because otherwise, I just can’t get out of bed in the morning.

Watch this, from a PhD MD in the US.

Then make up your own mind as to whether you think the way vaccines are being produced today is ethical.

To cut to the chase, they are basically using live tissue from aborted babies to grow vaccine cultures – but the babies are born alive, and only then killed for their tissue.

(They like to take these things offline fast, so I would watch it sooner rather than later.)

UPDATE:

One of the commentators wanted to know ‘what can we do about this?’

Here’s what I think is the next steps (apart from praying an awful lot that Hashem should protect us from all the terrible evil that’s being exposed in the world…)

I think we urgently need to find out if the rabbis and poskim actually have the full information on how vaccines are produced – including this information.

And then they have to render a halachic decision on whether this is acceptable.

Personally, I can’t see how halachically a believing Jew can use a vaccine that’s directly created via killing a newborn fetus for its heart tissue cells. We are supposed to ‘die’ instead of participating in murder, idolatry or forbidden relations, and it seems this is outright murder, however it’s spun.

That’s probably why the vaccine people didn’t want the public to actually have real information, and have just resorted to fear tactics and intimidation to close the discussion down.

I still don’t know where the truth lies in this matter, but I’d sure like to have more information given to me in a transparent way, and not just pressure tactics and ‘experts’ who like to tell you you’re talking rubbish, but strangely can’t point to any specific instances of where what you’re saying about vaccine harm and production is incorrect…

Don’t forget this, tomorrow:

I don’t know why, but my ‘BS-ometer’ is twitching.

Before the Eurovision Song Contest, in May 2019, 700 rockets rained down on Israel within two days.

That’s a lot of rockets.

And a lot of people were hurt and I think that three people were killed in Ashdod. (I can’t find the news report on that, so feel free to correct me on this.)

But I don’t remember back then seeing statements like this (all taken from the fake news YWN site ‘live blogging’ of the ‘war’):

====

6:20PM: Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan speaks to the nation via KAN11 TV News, explains that Israel Police is in charge at present, with all other organizations and security forces operating under its umbrella due to the “special regulations” which remain in place. This is the result of the ongoing rocket fire from Gaza into Israel.

The senior cabinet minister urges all citizens to adhere to the instructions and directives of the IDF Homefront Command.

He adds the nation’s security forces stand ready for “any situation”, including “a scenario of an attempted terrorist infiltration from the sea”. The Israel Police has increased its manpower in light of the security emergency, which has led to the implementation of limited emergency regulations.

6:05PM: US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman

6:04PM: Globes financial news explains the State of Israel has NIS 1.3 billion in reserves, pointing out it is enough for either a military operation in Gaza or another round of Knesset elections – but not both, asking “what to do?”

5:45PM: IDF Homefront Command Colonel Gil Shanav, speaking on KAN11 TV News suggests persons in areas not usually targeted with rocket fire to review regulations with family members – to discuss what everyone does if sirens are heard in the middle of the night.

====

This is just the last snippets, but I read this and I got the strange feeling that all is not how it seems.

I’ve been in Israel since 2005, and part of that time was spent in the South of the country, when rockets were raining down all over the place – and I didn’t see any ‘instructions’ like this being published then. I didn’t say any official announcements that Israel Police ‘are in charge of everything’ and that Israel has defacto just become a Police State.

In the meantime, 200 rockets aren’t nothing, it’s true, but what’s going on now still pales in comparison to the 700 rockets that fell in less than 2 days before the Eurovision – and there were no instructions like this, going out then.

Why would the State of Israel, and whoever is pulling the strings behind the scenes, be interested in setting us up for a ‘war’ right now?

Let’s go back to fake news YWN, for some clues:

====

CLUE #1:

Deep State America has been trying to get a war started with the Iranians for months and months, so they can get the green light to totally destroy Iran and take over their oil fields as well. But somehow or other, their plans to ignite World War III keep getting thwarted.

But they aren’t giving up! Let’s see if we can pick up the hint in US ambassador’s David Friedman’s tweet:

“Palestinian Islamic Jihad, an Islamist terrorist org backed by Iran, is again attacking Israel with 100’s of missiles aimed at civilians.”

My BS-ometer pinged off when I read this, because Hamas is also an Islamist terrorist organisation backed by Iran – but they aren’t rocketing Israel.

So, why is the PIJ suddenly in the spotlight again?

It kind of reminded me of what was happening with Oslo, when the PIJ were the main ones killing Israelis, with the guns they’d been given by Rabin and Peres.

====

CLUE #2:

The anti-Torah forces in Israel had a big plan to create a ‘unity government’ that would accept the Trump-Kushner ‘peace plan’, while simultaneously declaring ‘war’ against the Torah world.

Two times, that plan got miraculously stymied.

But, the people who are pulling the strings in Israel behind the scenes – from Europe and America – aren’t about to let a pesky thing like ‘democracy’ spoil things, no sirree!

Once you have a war going on, then a ‘unity government’ is a no-brainer, isn’t it?!?

And in case you didn’t get that message loud and clearly enough, here comes Globes – an ‘old Labour‘ mouthpiece – to reinforce the message:

6:04PM: Globes financial news explains the State of Israel has NIS 1.3 billion in reserves, pointing out it is enough for either a military operation in Gaza or another round of Knesset elections – but not both, asking “what to do?”

====

CLUE #3:

Honestly? This clue is by far the most worrying.

Do you understand they just formally announced that the State of Israel has been taken over by the police, ‘due to the war?’

6:20PM: Minister of Public Security Gilad Erdan speaks to the nation via KAN11 TV News, explains that Israel Police is in charge at present, with all other organizations and security forces operating under its umbrella due to the “special regulations” which remain in place. This is the result of the ongoing rocket fire from Gaza into Israel.

I have no idea why the POLICE should be taking over. Surely, if anyone, it should be the ARMY that’s taking over….

If things are really so bad in Israel, right now, security-wise.

====

Just two weeks ago, Jared Kushner was calling for Israel to form a ‘unity government’.

He’s got a ‘peace plan’ to promote here! And Israeli democracy is slowing it up! On that front, I recently read this from newsweek.com, and again, I had a strong feeling of deja vu:

 [I]t’s terrific to talk about what could happen if there was peace. But the ideas Kushner presented have been raised in a variety of formats and configurations over the course of the past 50 years. Twenty years ago, the concept of “a new Middle East” was the dream promoted by the late Israeli President Shimon Peres, in attempts to induce Israelis to agree to concessions for the sake of peace. In short, Peres promised that Israel would thrive in a Middle East at peace. He was no doubt correct. Be that as it may, be, Israel managed to thrive without achieving peace.

But even despite this ‘push’ from the States, that anti-Torah ‘unity government’ that everyone wants, except for the voters, just hasn’t happened.

So now, we have a war with Gaza again.

Apparently.

And already, the papers are full of people urging a unity government at this critical time.

But the facts on the ground doesn’t seem to justify the enormous public ‘over-reaction’ that is being shared on fake news sites like YWN, amongst others.

And my BS-ometer is still twitching. All I can say, is that I hope the Rav is going to sweeten all this again, and put another spanner in the works.

====

UPDATE:

Yesterday afternoon, they posted this up on the ravberland.com website:

Yesterday night, they miraculously agreed a cease-fire, Baruch Hashem.

I know there’s a question about Gog and Magog preceding Moshiach, and does that mean Moshiach is only coming in 200 years, too. The Rav has said previously the good things will start to happen now, presumably that includes Moshiach coming.

If I can pull any more insights together on this subject, I’ll write something about it, but I’m really as much in the dark as everyone else here. The key is emunat tzaddikim, to just develop some simple, humble faith in our true tzaddikim, and to stop pretending we know it all – or even, anything much!

But Baruch Hashem, enough people agreed to fast and to learn, to sweeten this latest attempt to start a disastrous war in the Middle East. Long may it continue…

Sometimes, it’s hard to keep going, isn’t it?

I think the hardest part of this current exile we’re in is that so much of our effort for good just seems to get ‘swallowed’ by bad, and we’re left scratching our heads and wondering where it all went.

The ‘bad’ is swallowing so much kedusha, so much good, so much truth, and it’s gulping it down at a never-before-seen pace.

And then I remember what Rebbe Nachman explained, that at some point, it will gulp down too much, and something will get stuck in its throat, and then it will be forced to regurgitate every last bit of good it swallowed.

More and more, I think the something that will get stuck in its throat is Rabbi Berland.

====

In case you don’t already know, the State of Israel, aided and abetted by the Pravda Israeli media, has decided to begin a new war against Rabbi Berland, and his Shuvu Banim community.

This time, they are using a secular woman whose baal teshuva daughter died from gallbladder cancer a couple of months ago.

Shoshie, the daughter, and her husband became baal teshuvas a few years ago – much to the mother’s displeasure. Then, they became Breslovers – which upset the mother even more. And then, the crowning insult – they joined Rabbi Berland’s Shuvu Banim community, and grew their payot really long.

This, the mother could never forgive.

====

Before we continue, some facts on gallbladder cancer, the type of cancer Shoshie had.

The following comes from uptodate.com, a website that is used by medical professionals to stay up to date, easily, on the latest research and advice for different illnesses:

Gallbladder cancer (GBC) is an uncommon but highly fatal malignancy; fewer than 5000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. The majority are found incidentally in patients undergoing exploration for cholelithiasis; a tumor will be found in 1 to 2 percent of such cases [1-4]. The poor prognosis is thought to be related to advanced stage at diagnosis, which is due both to the anatomic position of the gallbladder and to the vagueness and nonspecificity of symptoms.

Surgery is the only potentially curative modality for patients with GBC. However, only a minority of patients are eligible for curative-intent surgery because of disease extent (either locoregionally advanced and unresectable because of local invasion into critical structures or metastasized beyond locoregional confines). For the remainder, treatment is palliative in nature.

====

I bolded the sentence that you should pay particular attention to. In plain English, it says that the only way you can potentially cure gallbladder cancer is to surgically remove the diseased gallbladder.

If you can’t do that, you have no chance of curing the cancer, according to natural laws.

The following stats come from the cancer.net website:

If the cancer has spread outside the gallbladder to the lymph nodes, the 5-year survival rate is between 7% and 8%. Gallbladder cancer that has spread to other parts of the body has a 5-year survival rate of 4% or less.

====

What these stats say is that just 4-8% of people with gallbladder cancer live longer than 5 years after their diagnosis.

Or to put it another way, it kills 92-96% of people within five years, regardless of the treatment they receive.

Chemotherapy doesn’t work to ‘cure’ gallbladder cancer (whether it works under any circumstances is a post for another time). The medical professionals know this, and many of them will not ‘force’ people with gallbladder cancer to have chemo, as the side effects are horrendous and it’s really not helping them to live longer, anyway.

These are the facts.

The facts that you won’t see reported anywhere, in the Pravda propaganda media here in Israel, and in many other places in the West.

====

Cancer is a big industry.

This comes from an article on the newstarget site in 2016:

Last year, the cancer industry was valued at $100 billion, and is predicted to reach $147 billion in sales by 2018, according to data released by the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.

====

Meanwhile, this comes from the marketwatch website from January this year:

Global Oncology Drugs Market to Surpass US$ 196.2 Billion by 2026

The cancer industry is extremely lucrative, and is doubling in the 10 years between 2016-2026.

Why is it so profitable? The following article from October 2019, on the statnews website might shed some light on this:

Americans are rightly furious about the high and unsustainable price of cancer drugs, which now routinely cost more than $100,000 per year of therapy. Those prices are made worse by the fact that most cancer drugs offer only modest benefits — one study put the median benefit at 2.1 extra months of life — along with the fact that expert physicians frequently recommend these drugs for off-label uses, meaning using a drug for a purpose it was not initially approved for.

You got that?

You get an extra 2.1 months of life, on average, and it will cost you $100,000, if you go the ‘cancer drugs’ route.

====

So now, let’s return to the sad case of Shoshie, who paid a pidyon to Rabbi Berland, which was really her only chance of surviving her cancer in any way, shape or form.

The Rav advised her to follow a strict ‘no toxin’ diet, to try to encourage the gallbladder to heal, and according to the testimony of Shoshie’s husband, for as long as she was following the diet, her health was actually stable and even strengthening.

But the mother couldn’t leave things alone, and put her daughter under tremendous psychological pressure to have chemotherapy.

The same chemotherapy that even the medical profession admits doesn’t work to ‘cure’ gallbladder cancer in any way, shape or form, and that floods the body with a tremendous dose of literal poison.

That poison collapsed Shoshie’s weakened immune system, and she died two weeks after the chemotherapy.

Let me ask you:

When you know these facts about gallbladder cancer, who should really be in the frame for ‘murdering’ Shoshie?

====

So in this instance, the pidyon didn’t work.

Occasionally, this happens, and Rebbe Nachman clearly explains why this happens, at least in the spiritual realm, as you can read about HERE.

In the meantime, anti-chareidi journalists from Israel’s Channel 13 News decided to make a patently misleading ‘expose’ into what happened; then anti-chareidi politicians (who used to be anti-chareidi journalists) got up in the Knesset to ‘demand’ that the State of Israel stop the ‘Rabbi Berland cult’ –

And whaddya know?!

Barely two weeks later, Nurit Ben Moshe has filed a complaint with the Israel Police that Rabbi Berland should be investigated for manslaughter.

====

Again, let’s break down the complaint in plain English:

  • Rabbi Berland took money to effect a spiritual cure known as a pidon nefesh – that thousands of people, including terminally-ill cancer patients who the doctors had given up on can tell you first-hand worked to permanently cure them of their illness.
  • Rabbi Berland advised the patient, Shoshi, to follow a strict ‘all natural’ diet – to avoid over-taxing an already very weak immune system, and try to get her body to heal.
  • Nurit Ben-Moshe complained that Rabbi Berland was ‘stopping her daughter’ from having ‘life-saving chemotherapy’ – both claims are totally false. As soon as Shoshie succumbed to the pressure from her mother to have the chemo, she had the chemotherapy. No-one was stopping her from doing anything. And the chemo wasn’t ‘life-saving’ at all – in fact, it’s highly likely that having the chemo radically shortened Shoshi’s life.
  • Ergo, the pidyon didn’t work.

In any other country, the police would throw this complaint out as delusional.

But of course, the State of Israel is run by an anti-chareidi mafia, so instead, the media is full of stories rehashing the old lies and spicing them up with new ones.

====

So, why do I say that Rabbi Berland is the ‘bone in the throat’ of the Sitra Achra?

Because last time the State of Israel fabricated a case against him, the Israeli judicial system started to unravel publically. Just last week, Israel’s own Justice Minister had this to say about the ‘justice’ system in Israel (quoting something President Rivlin wrote in Haaretz back in 2004!):

Almost no one dared uncover the dangerous symbiosis between figures in the police major crimes unit, the State Prosecutor’s Office and the media.”….  How can we accept a situation in which senior officials in the judicial establishment, who are obligated to uphold standards, who preach at the gate against corruption, see and hear about institutional corruption on such a scale and say, there’s nothing to be done. The answer is that we cannot.”

No-one believes in the courts or the cops here anymore. Five years ago, most people believed that fair trials and honest investigations occurred in the State of Israel.

Not any more.

====

And now, this latest calumny against the Rav is going to highlight all the terrible lies the West likes to tell about its medical profession.

Start researching ‘cure’ rates for chemo, and for radiation oncology, and see what you find. And while you’re at it, take a look at this link a reader just sent me about cells from an aborted fetus that died in 1966, that are being cloned and routinely added to vaccines.

Even Wikipedia confirms that this is happening, known as ‘MCR-5’ on your vaccine information inserts.

Can someone please tell me why that’s happening?

What on earth is the medical justification, the medical rationale, for adding the whole cloned dna from an aborted fetus to vaccines?

I have to admit, I can’t think of anything that would justify this, and I can think of a whole bunch of reasons why I find this idea disturbing in the extreme.

====

So, I think this latest blood libel against the Rav is going to start shining the spotlight on the corrupt medical profession, and all the lies they like to tell about what’s really causing illnesses, and what’s really curing them.

In the meantime, Rabbi Berland has been warning for months that the situation is so bad, he’s going to have to take on a new disgrace that will make the last one look like a walk in the park.

I wrote about that months ago, here.

And it seems, that time has now come.

====

UPDATE:

Someone just sent me this flyer. If you’re in Israel, and you’re interested in at least asking some questions about why they are putting the full DNA from an aborted fetus from 1966 into vaccines we’re all happily syringing into our children, this could be the place to go for some more information:

UPDATE #2:

Within 10 minutes of me linking to the scholarly article that simply explained that the MCR-5 cells were taken from the aborted, 14 week old male of a 27 year old woman with severe mental illness, that article disappeared! The censorship is totally insane.

Here’s what that scholarly article said:

The MRC-5 cell line was developed in September 1966 from lung tissue taken from a 14 week fetus aborted for psychiatric reason from a 27 year old physically healthy woman. The cell morphology is fibroblast-like.

The New Madrid Seismic Zone in the US is being hit by quakes.

If you don’t know what the New Madrid Seismic Zone is, or why that’s such a big deal, read this.

To give you a potted history, back in 1811, New Madrid in the USA was hit with a number of quakes that totally destroyed a massive part of the Mid-USA.

The quakes started on December 16, 1811, with a quake that registered 8.1 on the Richter scale and continued throughout March of 1812.

Over that 4-month period, there were up to 10,000 quakes in the New Madrid area itself close to where the Ohio and Mississippi rivers meet, including an enormous quake on February 7, 1812, that was estimated to be as much as 8.8 on the Richter scale.[1]

After that earth-shaking strike which wrenched the land 15 miles south of New Madrid, a new lake was created, an American Indian village was destroyed by flooding, thousands of acres of forest were destroyed almost instantly, and a number of boatmen on the river reported that the Mississippi River started running backward for many hours.

Crew and passengers aboard the Mississippi’s first ever steamboat recorded how some of the islands in the Mississippi literally sank overnight.

If that wasn’t catastrophic enough, a number of crevices also began to open up in the ground around New Madrid as the terra firma continued to spasm, and some were up to 5 miles long. There were many reports of people who went missing at this time, presumed to have fallen into a fissure and been swallowed up by the earth.

There were also reports of the earth receding to a depth of 5 meters in some places.

====

Meanwhile, water gushed out of ruptures and craterlets, literally creating huge new lakes overnight like Lake Saint Francis in eastern Arkansas, which measures some 64 kilometers long by 1 kilometer wide.

The earthquakes also caused a number of sand boils, or sand volcanoes to form around New Madrid, including one that measured 1.4 miles long and 136 acres across that was dubbed ”the Beach” by locals.[2] And small golf ball-size tar spheres of solidified petroleum also appeared in the fissures and sand boils after the earthquakes.

All told, an area measuring between 78,000 and 129,000 square kilometers was dramatically affected by land caving in or being uplifted, landslides, sand volcanoes, sinkholes, and rifts which completely changed the topography of the area overnight. Today, you can see what’s called the Lake County uplift, which towers 10 meters over parts of the Mississippi River Valley for about a 50-kilometer stretch.[3]

Modern geologists are keen to assure us that:

“Most of the uplift occurred during prehistoric earthquakes.”[4]

But at least part of this uplift, called the Tiptonville Dome, which measures 14 km wide and 11 km long was formed sometime between just 200 and 2000 years ago.[5] That is, mountains were formed in the American Midwest well within modern times.

====

And now, the whole of the North American craton is moving, and the seismic pressure under the US is building to a crescendo again.

Smaller quakes have been hitting New Madrid and Missouri all through the summer, but now they are going up in frequency and intensity. On September 30, 2019, the New Madrid seismic zone was hit by 6 ‘medium’ earthquakes.

Now, according to DutchSinse, the quakes are on the rise across the whole of North America. And the fires that are connected to the underground methane gases rising up and igniting are still burning all over America’s West Coast. And so many of North America and Canada’s volcanoes are experiencing increased seismic activity.

And there’s a new, bigger, swarm of earthquakes going on in the New Madrid Zone.

You can take a look for yourself, here:

====

Dutchsinse is calling for new 6.0+ earthquakes to strike over the next week.

This is a forecast, not a prediction, and like all forecasts, it’s not 100% accurate. Dutchsinse is right around 70% of the time, so this shouldn’t be ignored out of hand. Hashem is trying to get our attention.

====

I’m having some interesting conversations over email around the last post. One reader suggested that maybe this could be a carry-on from the ‘Geula Gatherings‘ of last year, that kind of crashed and burned and left a lot of people who’d participated feeling very empty and despairing, when after all that effort, nothing really happened.

Or at least, that’s how it looked from the outside. From the inside, from the soul-side, who knows what was really being accomplished? But one thing is clear:

IF WE REALLY WANT GEULA TO COME, WE HAVE TO START DOING THE REAL WORK OF BRINGING IT.

====

As you know, I’m a Breslover (trying to be…) The Breslov path set out by Rebbe Nachman of Breslov teaches that while we can’t do anything without being connected to the True Tzaddik, he can’t do anything without our effort and prayers either. Breslov is not xtianity; we can’t just sit back and get ‘saved’ by our leader. We need to be active participants in the geula process, but following the lead of the True Tzaddik.

====

HERE’S SOME SOURCES, ON WHY WE NEED TO BE CONNECTED TO THE TRUE TZADDIK:

(You can find more Breslov sources on this topic HERE.)

Everyone must intend, when praying, to bind himself to the Generation’s Tzaddikim, because only
they know how to elevate each and every prayer to its destined place. (Likutey Etzot, Tzaddik 1)

By attaching to the Tzaddikim and following their advice, one becomes engraved with Truth and
merits to attain Faith and Prayer, the Land of Israel, and Miracles. And through this will come the
Redemption. (Etzot, Tz. 9)

Before one draws near to the Tzaddik, he is categorized as ‘fat-hearted’, meaning that his heart is sealed, his ears are shut, and his eyes are blind to the Truth, and he is unable to arouse himself to repentance. When he attaches himself to the Tzaddikim, however, and accepts their advice, then his heart, eyes, and ears are opened, and he understands the Truth and merits Repentance. (Etzot, Tz. 10)

There are souls that are so corrupt that, even after they come to the True Tzaddikim, they remain immersed in all their desires and are unable to move away from profanity towards holiness by even a hairsbreadth. It is surely impossible to elevate and renew souls like these, to make them born again. Yet there is a Tzaddik who is so wondrously and awesomely great that he is able to elevate even these blemished souls through rebirth, thereby renewing them for the good.

====

Drawing close to the ‘True Tzaddikim’ is the beginning of redemption – but it’s not where it ends.

Back in January 1987, the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, z’tl was recorded as saying this:

“My father-in-law [Rabbi Yosef Yitzhak Schneersohn], the Rebbe, gave us a mission: “Stand ready to greet Moshiach.” “Everything is already prepared, all that remains is to ‘polish the buttons.'”

The analogy of “polishing the buttons” is a precise one. In the overall picture, buttons are quite minor; they merely serve to fasten a garment onto the person. Spiritually speaking, “to polish the buttons” means that the Jewish People themselves, their “garments” and even their “buttons” are ready for the Redemption. They need to merely be “polished” in order for Moshiach to come.

In practical terms: Every Jew must do their part in this mission by enhancing their Torah study, observance of Mitzvos, and prayer. All those who work to earn a livelihood, should set aside a time during every work day for Torah study. They certainly want to run their businesses according to Torah guidelines, and fixed times for Torah study are a way to assure that a Jewish business runs according to Torah.”

====

While there is a lot of similarity between the Chabad path to geula and the Breslov path, there are also some crucial differences.

Where Chabad is putting the focus on: “enhancing their Torah study, observance of Mitzvos, and prayer” – which is wonderful and a very important part of the equation, Breslov takes all that and adds a crucial element:

Work on your bad middot!!!!!

Fix your bad character traits!!!!

Because working to overcome our anger, our jealousy, our hatred, our depression, our fear, our despair, our harsh judgment of other people, is what the geula and Moshiach really depends on.

====

To put this into other words, Rebbe Nachman is telling us: You can’t do anything without me, without the True Tzaddik, but guess what? I also can’t do anything without you!!

There is one reason, and one reason only, why Moshiach hasn’t shown up yet, and why the geula process is stuck. It’s because we aren’t working on our bad middot. 

And that’s the WHOLE REASON WE’RE DOWN HERE.

====

Life is not meant to be easy.

Geula isn’t meant to be a passive activity where we just sit on the sidelines ‘polishing buttons’, while we leave all the heavy lifting to the true Tzaddik of the generation. There is a lot of work to do! So many of us – even the ‘frummest of the frum’ people out there – are full of anger, arrogance, jealousy, greed and hatred.

So many of us are living superficial, phony lives where the body is totally in the driving seat, and the soul is left far, far behind. Just doing one more mitzva is not going to fix that fundamental problem. Getting to grips with our bad middot, and finally uprooting the sinat chinam that we all still have, is what’s going to bring the geula.

And that is really hard work!

The hardest work!

But we need to be clear that THIS is what’s going to bring the geula the sweet way, and nothing else.

====

The USA is being hit with increasingly powerful earthquakes. The political system is hanging by a thread in pretty much any country you care to mention. The lies are crumbling all over the place.

We really need Moshiach now, don’t we?

But we’re only going to get him, if we’re willing to do the work that God put us down here to do.

And that’s really the basis of the training I want to start doing. So If you’re still interested, please get in touch.
