“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky!”

By Michael Snyder, on August 2nd, 2015

Have you noticed that there is a tremendous amount of Internet buzz about the month of September 2015?  Never before have I seen so much speculation about what would happen in one particular month.  Some people believe that we will see an economic collapse next month, others believe that there will be some sort of historic natural disaster, and others are convinced that the judgment of God is coming.  So right now, large numbers of Americans are stocking up on emergency food and supplies like crazy.  Personally, I have never been more concerned about any period of time as I am about the last six months of 2015.  Several weeks ago, I expressed my belief that chaos will begin once the summer ends.  These are the last days of “normal life” in America, and just about everything that we currently take for granted is about to be shaken.

A lot of people that I know have been storing up food and supplies like never before, but I didn’t realize how widespread this phenomenon was until I came across the following Natural News report

As reported by AllNewsPipeline.com (ANP), correspondents for the news site began visiting a number of survival food websites in July, with the goal of ordering some essential bulk food items that included potatoes, carrots, mangoes, peaches, powdered eggs and powdered milk, among other items. But the more they shopped, the more they found notices on the survival food sites stating that supplies were either low or temporarily out of stock.

Only, the warnings did not say that stocks would be immediately replenished; rather, the site reported, some food items would take weeks to restock.

Upon returning to those sites a few days later, the situation had become even more dire: Many sites weren’t even certain when stocks of some items would be replaced.

While both Preparewise and Buy Emergency Foods EXPECT these items to be back in stock in 3 to 4 weeks, the fact that both of these websites are experiencing overwhelming demand and currently COMPLETELY out of some of the most basic food groups should tell everybody a few things,” ANP reported. “Americans are buying up these products in HUGE numbers as more and more Americans have come to expect a reason to need these items at some point in the future.”

The mainstream media likes to mock “preppers”, but nobody is going to be mocking them when things really start falling apart in this country.

When there is a severe lack of food, ordinary people can start acting like wild animals.  Just consider what is happening in Venezuela right now.  In this video and this video you can watch average Venezuelans go into panic mode over just a little bit of food.

Will we eventually see similar scenes in this country?

Many Americans are also feverishly stocking up on physical gold and silver.  In fact, sales of gold eagles are up 50 percent compared to last year…

Gold Eagle sales for the first seven months of the year, increased a staggering 50% from 296,000 oz in 2014 to 443,000 oz in 2015. Most of the Gold Eagle buying took place in July with total sales for the month at 170,000 oz. Thus, Gold Eagle sales in July account for nearly 40% of total sales for the year.

So why is this happening?

Why are people so freaked out?

Well, more than anything else people are pointing to the month of September.  The following comes from a recent piece authored by Lisa Haven

It seems a lot of people lately are having a gut feeling that something “Big” is about to unfold, but no one knows exactly what it is. Maybe people are feeling that way because of the events that are taking place around them. From signs in the heavens, to military stockpiling, to politically disturbing events. There seems to be a confluence of activity both in the political and spiritual realm culminating in 2015 causing peoples alarms to go off. Could it be that people are feeling this way because of the eerie events that are culminating in September??

Like many others, I also have a feeling that something “big” is about to happen.

A recent YouTube video that was produced by Infowars examined some of the specific reasons why so many people are concerned about what is going to happen next month…

Pretty ominous, eh?

In the article that I quoted from above, Lisa Haven put together her own list of key events.  Some of these events have already happened, some are about to happen, and some will happen during the month of September itself…

1. NORAD reopens Cheyenne Mountain after years of closure due to worries about an EMP attack

2. US Supreme Court legalizes gay marriage in all 50 states

3. Star of Bethlehem appears on June 30th

4. Talisman Saber Starts

5. Pope Francis declares his desire to build a World Government and a New World Order

6. The Temple Institute announces their plan to farm raise Red Heifer’s a precursor to the Building of the Temple.

7. New York Stock Exchange crashes, United Airlines halts, Wall Street journalist site and Chinese Market Shutdown

8. Jade Helm begins July 15th

9. Shemitah Year

10. Jubilee year

11. Blood moon Tetrad Concludes September 28th

12. UN hosts their Agenda 21 Meeting Sustainable Development for the Entire Planet (September 25-27) Pope Will Travel to New York and address Congress & attend the meeting

13. The coming UN Proposal to make Palestine a state.

A pretty impressive list.  But before I continue, I do want to note one thing.  I do not believe that the Jubilee year begins in 2015.  In my research, I have come to the conclusion that Jubilee years begin in our calendar years that end in 29 and 79.  In other words, the last two Jubilee years began in 1929 and 1979, and the next one will begin in 2029.  Some time soon I hope to write an entire article about this.

But without a doubt, there is a very impressive confluence of events that all come together in September.  The following is an extended excerpt from one of my previous articles

*****

September 13th – This is Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar – the last day of the Shemitah year.  Many are concerned about this date because we have seen giant stock market crashes on the last day of the previous two Shemitah cycles.

On September 17th, 2001 (which was Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), we witnessed the greatest one day stock market crash in U.S. history up until that time.  The Dow plummeted 684 points, and it was a record that held for exactly seven years until the end of the next Shemitah cycle.

On September 29th, 2008 (which was also Elul 29 on the Biblical calendar), the Dow fell by an astounding 777 points, which still today remains the greatest one day stock market crash of all time.

Now we are approaching the end of another Shemitah year.  So will the stock market crash on September 13th, 2015?  Well, no, because that day is a Sunday.  So I guarantee that the stock market will not crash on that particular day.  But as Jonathan Cahn has pointed out in his book on the Shemitah, sometimes stock market crashes happen just before the end of the Shemitah year and sometimes they happen within just a few weeks after the end of the Shemitah.  So we are not just looking at one particular date.

September 15th – The 70th session of the UN General Assembly begins on this date.  It is being reported that France plans to introduce a resolution which would give formal UN Security Council recognition to a Palestinian state.  Up until now, the United States has always been the one blocking such a resolution, but Barack Obama is indicating that things may be much different this time around.

September 25th to September 27th – The United Nations is going to launch a brand new sustainable development agenda for the entire planet.  Some have called this “Agenda 21 on steroids”.  But this new agenda is not just about the environment.  It also includes provisions regarding economics, agriculture, education and gender equality.  On September 25th, the Pope will travel to New York to give a major speech kicking off the UN conference where this new agenda will be unveiled.

September 28th – This is the date for the last of the four blood moons that fall on Biblical festival dates during 2014 and 2015.  This blood moon falls on the very first day of the Feast of Tabernacles, it will be a “supermoon”, and it will actually be visible in the city of Jerusalem.  There are many that dismiss the blood moon phenomenon, but we have seen similar patterns before.  For example, a similar pattern of eclipses happened just before and just after the destruction of the Jewish temple by the Romans in 70 AD.

*****

So what is going to happen this September?

Whatever it is, we don’t have very long until we find out.

Recently, there have been a few people that have come to my websites and have suggested that getting wrapped up in these things is wrong and that instead we should just “seize the day” and focus on enjoying our lives as much as we can.

Of course the truth is that it doesn’t do any good in the long-term to stick our heads in the sand.  If we willingly ignore the ominous clouds on the horizon, we do so at our own peril.

I think that all of us should consider these words that were recently penned by Larry Tomczak

Suppose you were born in the late 1930s. Reports are drifting your way about rumblings concerning Japan and its saber-rattling toward America. In Germany there is a firebrand on the horizon stirring the people to reclaim Germany’s glory. Rumors are circulating about a possible invasion of Poland. Winston Churchill is upbraiding his Prime Minister for declaring “peace in our time” after an ill-advised “deal” with Adolf Hitler. Economic storm warnings are increasing and rumors persist about possible rationing if war was to break out. A fascist dictator is coming to prominence in Italy named Benito Mussolini. Catch the drift of where I’m headed?

I am persuaded that we live in a similar period of history. A perfect storm is developing and this is not some surreal conspiracy theory. It is no exaggeration to say America is at a crossroads … in a meltdown … at a tipping point … experiencing unprecedented changes … observing our president act like a one-man wrecking crew to bring about his “fundamental transformation of America.”

Like Tomczak, I believe that we have reached “a tipping point” and that we are entering a “perfect storm”.

I believe that the months ahead are going to dramatically change life in America and that we are entering difficult times unlike anything that any of us have ever experienced.

So what do you think the month of September and the rest of the year will bring?

Britain has been labeled the “European capital of inequality” after a report found it is the most unequal country in the EU.

As part of a progressive study, the European Foundation for the Improvement of Living and Working Conditions (Eurofound) analyzed wages across the EU.

The report, titled Recent Developments in the Distribution of Wages in Europe, scrutinized data from 2004 to 2011 – the period before and after the onset of the Great Recession.

It found that the UK has the highest Gini coefficient of any EU member state – higher than that of the US. The coefficient is a widely used measure of income distribution within a nation, and is often used to calculate inequality.

According to analysts at Eurofound, Britain has a Gini coefficient of 0.404, while the US’ is 0.4.

Portugal and Latvia followed the UK with Gini coefficients of 0.358 and 0.357, respectively. The average Gini index for the EU as a whole in 2011 was 0.346.

The report, which was published last week, says: “The evolution of inequality in the EU as a whole seems to have been significantly affected by the economic crisis of 2008 [onward].”

Between 2004 and 2008, there was a clear reduction in EU wage inequality, reflected in a fall in the overall Gini index from 0.368 to 0.336 (a 10 percent decrease in four years). This fall came to a halt in 2008, and the trend started to slowly reverse, growing to 0.346,” it adds.

British economist Michael Burke said Eurofound’s study proves previous claims by Prime Minister David Cameron that Britain’s economy is recovering from the recession were false.

Speaking to RT on Tuesday, Burke said: “The Tory government is fond of making spurious claims about Britain being the strongest economy in Europe. But the reality is that Britain under the Tories is the European capital of inequality.”

All of the deterioration in the Gini coefficient in the EU is caused by the worsening of inequality,” he added.

The jobs machine that David Cameron [is referring to] is in reality low-paid jobs, many of them providing unproductive services to the ultra-rich.”

In its conclusion, the report found inequality to be increasing across the EU.

The Great Recession changed the trend of overall EU wage inequality.

“Between 2004 and 2008, EU wage inequality, decreased; after 2008, it increased,” it said.

Globally, the authors said that inequality has been growing within developed nations since the late 1970s.

Beginning with Anglo-Saxon countries, the growth of inequality eventually reached “traditionally low inequality countries” such as the Nordic countries during the 2000s.

Following the financial crisis of 2007-08 the UK became an outlier in the EU, as income equality began growing “very rapidly.

The overall increase in EU inequality since 2008 was “to a large extent driven by developments in the UK,” the report said. “Without which the overall EU within-country component of inequality remained more or less stable as a result of rather diverse developments at the country level.”

A YouGov survey conducted this month and published Monday found that most UK voters believe the government should prioritize reducing the gap between rich and poor over faster economic growth.

Some 50 percent of residents polled said inequality was more important, while 43 percent favored rapid economic growth.

Conservative supporters had the least concern about income inequality, while the majority of Labour, Liberal Democrat and Green voters said it should be prioritized by the government.

Intelligent computer systems will replace the need for human-operated jobs
Thu May 14 2015, 13:43

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) will be responsible for the next industrial revolution, experts in the field have claimed, as intelligent computer systems replace certain human-operated jobs.

Four computer science experts talked about how advances in AI could lead to a “hollowing out” of middle-income jobs during a panel debate hosted by ClickSoftware about the future of technology.

“It’s really important that we take AI seriously. It will lead to the fourth industrial revolution and will change the world in ways we cannot predict now,” said AI architect and author George Zarkadakis.

His mention of the “fourth industrial revolution” refers to the computerisation of the manufacturing industry.

If the first industrial revolution was the mechanisation of production using water and steam power, followed by the second which introduced mass production with the help of electric power, then the third is what we are currently experiencing: the digital revolution and the use of electronics and IT to further automate production.

The fourth industrial revolution, which is sometimes referred to as Industry 4.0, is the vision of the ‘smart factory’, where cyber-physical systems monitor physical processes, create a virtual copy of the physical world and make decentralised decisions.

These cyber-physical systems communicate and cooperate with each other and humans in real time over the Internet of Things.

Dan O’Hara, Senior Lecturer in English, New College of the Humanities, explained that this fourth industrial revolution will not be the same kind of “hollowing out” of jobs that we saw during the last one.

“It [won’t be] manual labour replaced by automation, but it’ll be the hollowing out of middle-income jobs, medium-skilled jobs,” he said.

“The industries that will be affected the most from a replacement with automation are construction, accounts and transport. But the biggest [industry] of all, remembering this is respective to the US, is retail and sales.”

O’Hara added that many large organisations’ biggest expense is people, who already work alongside intelligent computer systems, and this area is most likely to be affected as companies look to reduce costs.

“Anything that’s working on an AI-based system is bound to be very vulnerable to the replacement by AI as it’s easily automated already,” he said.

However, while AI developments in the retail space could lead to the replacement of jobs, it is also rather promising at the same time.

Mark Bishop, professor of cognitive computing at Goldsmiths, highlighted that AI could save businesses money if it becomes smart enough to determine price variants in company spending, for example, scanning through years of an organisation’s invoice database and detecting the cheapest costs and thus saving on outgoings.

While some worry that AI will take over jobs, others have said that they will replace humans altogether.

John Lewis IT chief Paul Coby said earlier this year that the blending of AI and the IoT in the future could signal the end of civilisation as we know it.

Coby explained that the possibilities are already with us in terms of AI and that we ought to think about how “playing with the demons” could be detrimental to our future.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak added to previous comments from Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk with claims that “computers are going to take over from humans”.

Woz made his feelings on AI known during an interview with the Australian Financial Review, and agreed with Hawking and Musk that its potential to surpass humans is worrying.

“Computers are going to take over from humans, no question. Like people including Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk have predicted, I agree that the future is scary and very bad for people,” he said.

Army Drone Tank

Army Drone Tank Army bosses reveal “robotank” has been tested

 

  • Trials allowed tank to be controlled by soldier 1km behind
  • Could be sent first into highly dangerous areas
  • Tank can reload and change weapons using specially developed systems 

It is one of the most hi-tech tanks ever created – and doesn’t even need a driver.

The US Army has revealed it has been testing the vehicle, known as Ripsaw.

The ‘drone tank’ is controlled remotely, and can reload itself and even change weapons at the touch of a button.

Army bosses say it could one day lead US troops in battle.

The unmanned vehicle, though still in development, has been tested and is capable of driving up to 1 kilometer ahead of various types of formations, Bob Testa of the Remote Weapons Branch of the Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center said.

‘We cut the copper cable and made it wireless so that the vehicle and weapon can both be driven remotely,’ said Testa, explaining how it works.

During tests, the Ripsaw was followed by an M113 Armored Personnel Carrier.

Trailing up to a kilometer behind, the M113 was driven by a Soldier.

Another Soldier, in the vehicle, would control the Ripsaw and its weapon wirelessly, Testa said.

Rather than reinvent something, Testa said his team selected a vehicle already produced by Howe and Howe Technologies, since it had remote driving capabilities.

In 2009, ‘Popular Science’ magazine named the Ripsaw the invention of the year, so the technology has been around for a while.

Testa and his team converted the vehicle for Army use.

drone 2

They added a Common Remotely Operated Weapons Station, or CROWS.

CROWS has been used in combat as far back as 2004 in Iraq.

It allows a Soldier inside a tank, Humvee, Stryker or any other vehicle to fire his weapon safely from inside the armor-protected vehicle.

In other words, he does not have to stick his head out to see to fire.

Cameras and range finders on CROWS see for him and the system can tilt and swivel the weapon as needed.

While that capability probably resulted in a lot of saved lives, the Soldier inside the vehicle could still be killed or injured from a large enemy mine or projectile.

So Testa’s team took the remotely-operated system one step further.

They completely removed the Soldier from the vehicle.

The weakness of the entire system was the weapon itself, he said, meaning the M2 .50-caliber machine gun, Mk19 40-mm automatic grenade machine gun, M240B 7.62 mm machine gun, M249 Squad Automatic Weapon, or any number of other weapons that can be mounted in CROWS.

What Testa meant by weakness is that those weapons still required a trigger finger to fire.

However, the team then designed a self firing weapon.

ARDEC developed the Advanced Remote Armament System, or ARAS, a gun that self-loads its own ammunition and even can swap out various types of ammunition, such as lethal and non-lethal, in just a few seconds, he said.

The Ripsaw’s speed and mobility is such that it can keep pace with normal operations tempo, he said.

While it is technically feasible to go one step further and make the whole system robotic, meaning fully autonomous, Testa said that would not happen.

The Ripsaw and its ARAS are ‘tele-operated,’ he said.

That means a Soldier remotely drives it and operates and fires the weapon.

Army leaders have repeatedly said that ‘war is a human endeavor’ and robots will never replace Soldiers, he said.

Besides the ethical reason, Department of Defense Directive 3000.09 ‘Autonomy in Weapon Systems,’ published in November 2012, prohibits robots from making life and death decisions without a human in control.

While a lot of experimentation and testing has occurred, Testa said formal certification testing at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, would still be required to move forward.

Also needed will be a ‘firm requirement’ from the Army to move ahead past the development phase.

Soldiers themselves would need proper training and indoctrination with regard to using unmanned platforms on the battlefield, he said.

WILL A ROBOT FIRE IT?

Army leaders have repeatedly said that ‘war is a human endeavor’ and robots will never replace Soldiers.

Besides the ethical reason, Department of Defense Directive 3000.09 ‘Autonomy in Weapon Systems,’ published in November 2012, prohibits robots from making life and death decisions without a human in control.

Judgement Day

Judgement Day

“Keep your nose to the ground and your eyes to the sky!”

Scientists have proven that humans and animals can sense events and energy sources that are beyond the reach of the five senses. Alex Jones’ sixth sense has been going off in recent weeks and he wanted to take some time to share what he has been going through mentally and call for a discussion of what the future has in store in for all of us.

And from a Biblical religious perspective things are pretty interesting!!

“We are living in the endtimes, Bible prophecy is being fulfilled right in front of our eyes.
I believe that in September this year there will be a climax of prophetic and significant events.
The main focus of this video lies on the Shemitah.” – Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

7 Year Shemitah cycle

As the author of this blog, I initially started it as a means to store articles and news stories that interested me and which I thought should be published to a wider audience, if possible.  Over the years, I’ve witnessed a steady decline in apathy, knowledge, and understanding (myself included) to such subjects, while the world around has quickly deteriorated in moral and ethical ways.

As the videos on this article have shown, there is a general consensus that something is about to break loose on this planet.  We have all been wound tightly around the corkscrew and it is soon to explode.

blood-moon-tetrad

Whether you are religious or secular, doesn’t matter, because what is to come will effect us all, no matter which way your persuasions lie.  Only you can determine what your conscience tells you and how you will react and respond.

All I know is that there are things way more BIGGER than we can even begin to comprehend and as the saying goes; “the only thing I know is that I know nothing!”

ARTICLE from the National Geographic, dated September 20th, 2013:

NASA Declares End to Deep Impact Comet Mission

Communication cutoff leads to loss of comet hunter, say space officials.

deep-impact-nasa-spacecraft-declared-defunct_71930_990x742

NASA scientists ended the Deep Impact comet hunter mission on September 20.

Dan Vergano

National Geographic

Published September 20, 2013

NASA officials declared the Deep Impact mission lost on Friday, after a computer glitch doomed the comet-smashing spacecraft.

Launched in 2005, the spacecraft memorably smashed a copper-jacketed probe into the comet Tempel 1 at 22,800 miles an hour (36,700 kilometers an hour) on July 4 of that year. It then flew through the debris cloud to capture the resultant fireworks, the first close inspection of a comet’s interior. (See “‘Deep Impact’ Comet Revealed by NASA Flyby.”)

The $267 million spacecraft later flew by the comet Hartley 2 in 2010, and this year it captured images of comet ISON, which is headed toward a close encounter with the sun in November.

But now the Deep Impact spacecraft appears to be lost.

“The mission revolutionized the way we think about comets and raised all sorts of questions we still have to answer,” said chief mission scientist Mike A’Hearn of the University of Maryland.

Mission controllers last radioed the spacecraft on August 8, after which communications were lost, according to a statement from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. After a month of attempts to restore communications through the NASA Deep Space Network, the controllers have declared the mission “lost,” concluding that a computer glitch likely doomed the spacecraft.

“Basically, it was a Y2K problem, where some software didn’t roll over the calendar date correctly,” said A’Hearn. The spacecraft’s fault-protection software (ironically enough) would have misread any date after August 11, 2013, he said, triggering an endless series of computer reboots aboard Deep Impact.

Despite repeated attempts to send corrective commands, the spacecraft likely lost its bearings and failed to point its solar cell wings toward the sun,  A’Hearn said, causing a catastrophic loss of power.

Comets Now Better Understood

Deep Impact had been enjoying a surprisingly long second act after its 2005 rendezvous with Tempel 1 and the two years of data analysis that followed the smash-up. “I considered everything afterwards as gravy,” A’Hearn said.

Before Deep Impact, comet scientists had a relatively simple picture of comets as crusty, dirty snowballs from beyond Pluto. After the 2005 encounter, A’Hearn said, scientists understood that space weather reshaped comet surfaces, that comet tails contain dry ice and water, and that comets originated close to the sun at the dawn of the solar system.

The findings played into scientific discussions of how water delivered by comet impacts may have filled the oceans of the early Earth more than four billion years ago.

“I’m a little biased, but I think the taxpayers saw very good value from this mission,” A’Hearn says.
