In the “new abnormal”, the government could enforce who you’re allowed to socialize with, via Tracking App !!

In the “new abnormal” of social distancing, governments could dictate who you’re allowed to socialize with and punish wrongdoers via a smart phone Tracking App !!

It’s already happening in China.

In China, authorities are using technology to track healthy people – – and those who pose a risk.

Residents are assigned color-coded QR codes on their phones.  The color determines what they’re able to do.  In Wuhan, China, where the lockdown has been lifted, residents need to produce a green QR code on their phones to leave their homes.

To get into places such as restaurants, people need to show a green QR code.

Now Apple and Google are working together to help US health authorities track exposure to the coronavirus using Bluetooth technology.

The tech giants could play an important role in fighting the pandemic despite privacy concerns.

Harvard’s Safra Center said people not in a “high-risk” population could move about freely.  Their location on public transport could be tracked on “privacy-protective QR scanning.”

Additionally, the center’s paper said, thermal scanning devices in public spaces “can help spot outbreaks and support contact tracing”- – tracking down sick people, isolating them and then tracing everyone with whom they’ve been in contact and putting those people into quarantine.

A report by the conservative American Enterprise Institute think tank said home isolation can be enforced using GPS tracking on phone apps.

A plan from the liberal Center for American Progress called for a “trusted, nonprofit organization” to host the medical data – –  “not private technology companies or the federal government.”  The information must be automatically deleted after 45 days.

Jeffrey Shaman, a professor of environmental health sciences at Columbia University, said South Korea is using “very aggressive” contact tracing which looks into personal credit cards and phone records and car GPS information.

“The reality is your credit card company is already using this on you,” he said.  “You signed it when you signed the contract that was in the fine print there, and they were using for whatever the heck they wanted to do with it to make money.  And your phone is already using it.  That’s what all the phone companies do, they track you.  And lots of other apps on your phones do also.”

from Tyler Durden, ZEROHEDGE, May 16, 2020:

(QUOTE)

The Belgian government is considering permitting people to have a designated list of people they can visit in order to keep the risk of transmitting COVID-19 low.

Psychologist Dr. Linda Papadopoulos said that people who have been locked down for two months unable to see friends or family “will see it as progress and a welcome development.”

However, the proposal is completely unenforceable without draconian state monitoring and surveillance.

“From a psychological perspective, I am not sure that it works at all,” said Rory Sutherland, a behavioral scientist and vice chairman of the advertising agency Ogilvy. “Any group assembling could simply claim that everyone present was part of the same cluster, and without spectacular levels of bureaucracy, it would be impossible to establish the veracity of this.  It would re-establish the sight of large groups of people as a norm.”

“I think it falls into that category of “excellent science, bad policy,” he added.

And that’s where the tracking app comes in.

“Do not worry about the enforcement of these bubbles; the government could use smartphone app(s) to track and trace bubble violaters,” writes Zero Hedge.

It’s easy to envisage a not too distant dystopia of state-enforced social distancing where the mandatory app will deduct points from your social credit score if you venture outside of your house once too often or meet with an unauthorized friend.

By giving people the ‘privilege’ of allowing them to see a select number of friends, people are also being trained that they are getting rights back.

The Pandemic broke America – – and the Virus continues to spread in the divided nation

by Nicholas Johnston, AXIOS – – May 14, 2020:

http://www.axios.com/coronavirus-america-broken-2baa69e4-60e6-49a5-932a-5d118441ae20.html

(QUOTE)

Eight weeks into this nation’s greatest crisis since World War II, we seem no closer to a national strategy to reopen the nation, rebuild the economy and defeat the Coronavirus.

Why it matters:

America’s ongoing cultural wars over everything have weakened our ability to respond to this pandemic.  We may be our worst enemy.

The response is being hobbled by the same trends that have impacted so much of our lives:  growing income inequality, the rise of misinformation, lack of trust in institutions, the rural/urban divide and hyper-partisanship.

We’re not even seeing the same threat from the virus.  Democrats are far more likely than Republicans to be worried about getting seriously ill, while Republicans – –  including the president – –  are more likely to think the death counts are too high.

Without even a basic agreement on the danger of the pandemic and its toll, here’s how we see the national response unfold:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the crown jewel of the globe’s public health infrastructure, has been sidelined, its recommendations dismissed by the White House.

President Trump declares the U.S. has “prevailed on testing” at a time when health experts say we still need far more daily tests before the country can reopen safely.

Distribution of the promising coronavirus drug remdesivir was initially botched because of miscommunication between government agencies.

More than two thirds of Americans say it’s unlikely they would use a cell phone-based contact tracing program established by the federal government, a key component of a testing regime to control the virus.

The second phase of a program to aid small businesses isn’t fully allocated because firms are either concerned about its changing rules, confused about how to access it, or find the structure won’t help them stay in business.

With the unemployment rate at a post-Depression record last month, and expected to go higher, there is no meaningful discussion between the parties in Congress on aid to the out-of-work.

States and local governments are facing billions in losses without a strategy for assistance.

The virus is literally inside the White House.  Aides have tested positive for coronavirus, leading to quarantines for some of the nation’s top public health officials and a new daily testing regime for White House staff and reporters who enter the West Wing.

The No. 1 book on Amazon for a time was a book by an anti-vaxxer whose conspiracy-minded video about the pandemic spread widely across social media, leading to takedowns by platforms like YouTube and Facebook.

The other side:

There’s better news at the state level.  “Governors collectively have been winning widespread praise from the public for their handling of the coronavirus outbreak,” the Washington Post reports.

Individual states are making progress, according to the most recent Axios analysis of coronavirus cases – –  though it’s early and a second wave of infections is still possible.

Between the lines:

Nationwide, 71% of Americans approve of the job their governor is doing, according to the Post.  For Trump, the figure is 43%.

And former presidents we often expect to help rally the nation in trying times are scarce.

George W. Bush released a video, in which his face barely appeared, calling for unity in the fight against the virus.  Barack Obama was recorded in leaked remarks to former staffers calling Trump’s coronavirus response “an absolute chaotic disaster.”  Trump attacked both of them on Twitter.

The bottom line:

An existential threat – –  like war or natural disaster – –  usually brings people together to set a course of action in response.  Somehow, we’ve let this one drive us apart.

Will UFOs be involved in the coming “Rapture” scenario?

Amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic which may last for several more years, here are some astounding events still to happen subsequently (or in the very near future), according to the End-time beliefs of some “Apocalyptic Christians”.

by Norio Hayakawa:

 

One of the main characteristics of America’s Bible-believing, Evangelical Christians, is their total support of Israel through the belief that contemporary Israel is the fulfillment of Biblical prophecies and that the U.S. must continue to support the State of Israel, no matter what.

A large number of these American Bible-believing, Evangelical Christians, therefore, believe that we are living the the “End-time” period of God’s prophetic calendar.

It is of utmost importance to point out some of the “End-timescenarios as believed by the supporters of this view.

Here is the typical order of the prophetic events to come, as outlined by many of those Christians who seem to hold on to the so-called Pre-millenial, Dispensationalist, Pre-Tribulation viewpoints:

 

1) THE EZEKIEL SCENARIO

They seem to believe that this could easily begin with the escalation of the Middle East conflict, involving Israel. They seem to believe that Iran and Syria will play a major initial role in this scenario.

They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario includes the attempted invasion into Israel by all Islamic forces  (led and orchestrated by the northern-most power, i.e., Russia)  and will conclude with a miraculous Israeli victory.

They believe that it is suggested in the Bible that it will take 7 years to bury the dead from this unprecedented conflagration. (The U.S. will be involved, directly or indirectly in this conflagration, they explain).

 

2) THE APPEARANCE OF THE ANTI-CHRIST

According to their belief, the Ezekiel 38 scenario will conclude with the mysterious appearance of the Anti-Christ who will create a Peace Treaty between Israel and the Palestinians  (and all Islamic confederation).

 

3) THE RAPTURE

They say that the Ezekiel 38 scenario could also conclude with a simultaneous, mysterious disappearance of millions of people from this earth, which will result in total chaos, confusion and fear among the global populace.

This, they say, is the “Rapture“.

It will be a mysterious, mass “evacuation” of the believers to meet the Lord in “mid-air“.

(The physical bodies will be mysteriously and instantaneously converted to celestial bodies).

In other words, “born-again” believers will be “translated” from one side to the other, i.e., from the earthly plane to the heavenly dimension and will meet Jesus in “mid-air“.

They say that the “Rapture”  (from Latin “raptare“, to “snatch” away, as in the eagle “snatching” away her baby when danger comes and taking it away to a safer location, etc.),  is a supernatural event clearly suggested in the Bible that has not happened yet in the history of mankind, but will be certain to happen, according to most of these pre-tribulationist, dispensationalist believers.

It will be an inexplicable, instantaneous disintegration of all atomic particles of each of our cells of our tissues, i.e., the instant conversion of our physical body into a spiritual, celestial “body” which will be swooshed up into “mid-air”.

In other words, they believe that “in the twinkling of an eye“, our physical bodies will go through a mysterious, sudden transmogrification  (a favorite word used by John Keel) and will be lifted up to meet the Lord in “mid-air“.  Our entire physical bodies (the tissues, the cells will go through a sudden, inexplicable atomic fission-type transformation, they say.)

They believe that the “Rapture” is a conduit prepared by God for us to escape the coming global wrath known as the Tribulation (comparable to the days of Noah, when God safely place a few faithful believers in the ark first and then caused the rain to pour down thereafter).

Pre-tribulationist, dispensationalists believe that this unprecedented event will take place simultaneously with the appearance (the revealing) of the Anti-Christ.

The Anti-Christ, according to these believers, will not be able to come to power until thebody of believers”  (together with the presence of the Holy Spirit)  is removed from this earth.

Only then, at that moment, can the Anti-Christ come into power.

According to these Christians, the “Rapture” will literally be a celestial wedding, the union of the bride  (the “church” or “the body of believers”)  and the Groom (Jesus Christ).

This “wedding” celebration in the air will last for 7 days, which could symbolically be equivalent to 7 earthly years, according to some interpretations.

 

4) THE ANTI-CHRIST SUCCEEDS IN CALMING DOWN THE STUNNED, CONFUSED AND PANIC-STRICKEN POPULACE

When the Anti-Christ appears on global emergency TV news conference, many of these Fundamentalist Christians say that he would calm down the frightened people of the earth with his ingenious, well-calculated explanation regarding the sudden disappearance of millions of people from the earth; this could be when “UFOs” are brought up; the Anti-Christ could use some type of “extraterrestrial” intervention explanation.

(By the way, in the U.S., the majority of the Fundamentalist, Evangelical Christians hold on to the viewpoint that somehow the “UFO” phenomenon is “Satanic” or “diabolical“.

These groups seem to believe that “UFOs” will play a major role in these future biblical prophecies.

However, some of these Fundamentalists seem to emphasize that only one-third of the entire angelic entities of the universe are demonic or malevolent or “fallen” and that the rest, i.e., the remaining two-thirds are benelovent or “good” angels.

There are some Fundamentalist ministers who state that the malevolent one-third are the ones posing as “extraterrestrial aliens” and are deceiving a segment of the population in the time period they describe as these “End-time” period of history.)

Some theorists even believe that if a global government of some sort is to be set up intentionally  (by force)  in the future, there are several ways to accomplish it.  Creating wars is one example, they say.

Creating other series of “crises” is another, such as manipulating natural global catastrophes, or even creating artificial ones.  Some researchers call this the “ORDO AB CHAOS” theory.

They also point out that Henry Kissinger at one time suggested that should the world suddenly face an external threat  (i.e., from “outer space“)  whether REAL or PROMULGATED, it would accelerate a cry for a global unified government.  They say that Ronald Reagan and Gorbachev also had allegedly made such similar remarks, that if the world is faced with such an extraterrestrial threat, we will all forget our differences and be united as one to defend this earth from such threats.

Some conspiracy theorists seem to pose this question:

Can the “world government” stage a deceptive, “alien contact/landing” scenario?

If the secret government were to stage such a fake, “extraterrestrial” type of event, it would definitely be beneficial to them if there remains an adamant element of society who have always believed in “UFOs” and “aliens“).

In any case, Bible-believing Evangelical Christians seem to believe that somehow the Anti-Christ will come up with a brilliant, convincing explanation for the “Rapture” event and that somehow  (supernaturally)  the world will have a sigh of relief by his explanation.

 

5) THE BEGINNING OF THE 7-YEAR TRIBULATION PERIOD

According to these believers, this event will be the beginning of the 7 -year Tribulation Period  (i.e., the “New World Order” of the Anti-Christ, the first half of which will be relatively and deceptively peaceful, and the second half of which will be an iron-fisted rule of the Anti-Christ, who will declare himself to be God at mid-point).

 

6) THE BATTLE OF ARMAGEDDON:

Towards the end of the 7th year, nations such as China  (and the rest of the “Kings of the East“)  will challenge the dictatorship of Anti-Christ’s New World Order and will begin to cross the Euphrates and make a move towards the valley of Megiddo.

This battle, the battle of Armageddon, will be the final global battle.

During the climax of this battle, celestial forces led by Jesus Christ  (and accompanied by those who had been “raptured“)  will descend and will destroy all earthly forces.

 

7) A THOUSAND YEAR REIGN OF JESUS CHRIST FROM ISRAEL

Jesus Christ, according to these believers, will rule from Israel for a 1,000 years.

This is the Millenial Kingdom. 

 

8) FINAL, MINOR REBLLION

At the end of the 1000 years, there will be a minor rebellion by the descendants of those who may have survived the Armageddon and continued to procreate, thus having physical bodies.

That minor rebellion will be crushed by God, these believers say.

 

9) THE FINAL JUDGMENT

This is the gist of the events to occur in the near future, according to many of the so-called Fundamentalist, Dispensationalist, Evangelical, Pre-Millenial, Pre-Tribulationist Christians.

Is this all wild, “science fiction“?

Maybe.  But again, no one knows.

Does it hurt to believe in this “unbelievable” scenario?

These Evangelical Christians seem to say that it won’t hurt at all to believe that if such scenarios could come true.

They say that they have nothing to lose by believing in it even if it doesn’t come true, but everything to gain if it indeed takes place, if one is a believer.

Yes, I am the one who wrote this article  (in the style of a “third person”)  because I also believe in it.

Maranatha!!

“Four Horsemen are active”, Bible scholars claim Book of Revelation seals broken !!

by Callum Hoare, EXPRESS, May 11, 2020:

http://www.express.co.uk/news/weird/1280755/bible-book-revelation-seven-seals-four-horsemen-end-world-second-coming-jesus-christ-spt

(QUOTE)

BIBLE scholars have sensationally claimed the end of the world could be upon us as they believe the Four Horsemen, who bring about death, war, famine and disease before the return of Jesus Christ in the holy book, have all been released.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse appear in the Book of Revelation, where they are named as a punishment of God, but some believe they are an analogy of real-life events to come in the future.  Revelation 6 tells of a scroll in God’s right hand that is secured with seven seals, which, when opened, summons four beings that ride out on white, black, red and pale horses to bring about death, war, famine and plague.  It states: “They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.”

In 2005, Bible scholar Fred Dattolo published an article in ‘The Trumpet’ where he claimed “the galloping hoofbeats of the four horses are getting ever louder and closer,” stating that a future pandemic was all that was needed to set free the final Horseman, who would spread a disease to a quarter of the world.

He said: “The four horsemen are depicted in the Book of Revelation Chapter 6 as the first four of seven seals.

“These seals are benchmarks of end-time events leading up to and including the return of Jesus Christ.

With the coronavirus pandemic currently causing global panic, Mr Dattolo’s claims have come back into the spotlight, with some bizarrely stating it proves COVID-19 is in fact a sign of the End Times.

One Twitter user said: “The Four Horsemen of Apocalypse representing war, famine, pestilence and death as depicted in the Bible on Revelation 6:2-8 are most likely causing this coronavirus worldwide.

“We don’t see them but we can feel their wrath everywhere.”

Another added: “What if the Coronavirus pandemic is one of the Four Horsemen?  This virus is the pale horse and Horseman”

And a third outright claimed: “The Four Horsemen of the Bible are currently active.”

According to the Book of Revelation, there are still three more seals to be broken before the Second Coming.

The fifth seal will reveal the souls of those who had been slain for the “Word of God,” and things get much more concerning thereafter.

Upon the sixth seal breaking there will be a “great earthquake” before the Sun turns “black as sackcloth made of hair” and the Moon becomes “like blood”.

Then, the seventh seal is opened and heaven is silent for about half an hour before the seven trumpets are sounded to cue apocalyptic events.

“John witnessed those vivid events in a vision sent by God the Father to Jesus Christ, who gave it to an angel to reveal to John – – Rev. 1:1.”

A skeptical look at “History” Channel’s “Skinwalker Ranch” episodes – – microwaves, dead cows and light pillars

by Robert Sheaffer, April 2, 2020

http://www.badufos.blogspot.com/2020/04/microwaves-dead-cows-and-light-pillars.html

(QUOTE)

So, the “HistoryChannel has now allowed free streaming of the first episode of “The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch,” in which the new owner of the Ranch, Brandon Fugal, participates to sing the wonders of the property he has purchased, the Skinwalker Ranch.  The show jumps right into presenting its evidence, starting off with a dead cow.  The participants were warned not to touch it “until we see if it’s radioactive or not.”

One theory set forth to explain the supposed “phenomenon” is that the Ranch  (and indeed, all of the state of Utah)  was downwind from the atomic testing near Las Vegas in the 1950s, and so supposedly there is lots of radioactivity remaining in the landscape.  (Except that there obviously isn’t, or else the whole state would need to be evacuated.)

Another theory set forth is that because the Ute tribe supposedly used to hold Navajos as slaves, the Navajos cursed the Utes, and loosed Skinwalkers and other shape-shifting supernatural beings upon them.  But this does not appear to be historically correct.  According to one tribal history, the Utes “Stole women and children from Paiutes and Goshutes and sold them to the Spanish and Mexicans for slaves.”

Mr. Fugal thinks that his “light pillar” is something paranormal.  In fact, it’s a well-known meteorological phenomenon.

In the above screen shot from the program, we obviously see a photo of a Light Pillar, a well-known if uncommon phenomenon in meteorological optics.  It’s clear that not only does Fugal know nothing about such optical phenomena, but like his counterparts in Tom DeLonge’s TO THE STARS ACADEMY, he failed to consult anyone who does.  This does not inspire confidence in the quality of his “experts,” or his “investigations.”

Speaking of Fugal’s “experts,” the one receiving top billing is Travis Taylor, PhD, billed as a “physicist” and “Astrophysicist.”  However, as Jason Colavito has noted:

“We cut back to May 2019 to introduce our investigators, starting with Travis Taylor, who identifies himself as a scientist with decades of scientific and engineering experience.  The show omits the fact that he is also a talking head from ANCIENT ALIENS who has spouted inane drivel about aliens’ secret lunar colonies and other nonsense, or that he is a former CURSE OF OAK ISLAND guest looney who imagined the island to be a representation of the constellation Taurus.”

Like good little Ghost Hunters, Taylor and the others use electronic devices to look for spooky stuff.  Using a Trifield EMF meter, he not only detects strong microwave energy, but proclaims it to be at “dangerous levels.”

Perhaps the most surprising development was Fugal’s directive to his staff, “No digging!”

He said, “Once we commence digging, it opens up a whole Pandora’s Box.”  Apparently, digging “triggers the phenomenon,” and probably releases demons or something from the Underworld.  (New people arriving on the ranch also seems to trigger the phenomenon, we are told.) 

After digging a hole, ranch supervisor Tom Winterton reportedly suffered a strange, unexplained “goose egg” swelling on his head that required hospitalization, although no medical records were released to substantiate this claim.  If someone is going to claim medical effects resulting from a ‘paranormal’ cause (Cash-Landrum, anybody?), it’s just hearsay until the full medical records are released.

More mysterious stuff is promised in subsequent episodes.  My first impression after seeing this show is that Fugal is setting up an organization that is in many ways similar to Tom DeLonge’s “TO THE STARS ACADEMY“:

He gathers a team of supposed “experts” (who seem surprisingly unprepared to carry out serious investigations) to eagerly charge off and investigate supposed “mysteries.”  But nothing is ever really resolved.  Fugal and DeLonge now have dueling “mystery” series on the “History” Channel.  May the best man win.

(UNQUOTE)

SKINWALKER RANCH:

“The myth of Skinwalker Ranch was created in the mid-1990s when Las Vegas journalist George Knapp, famous for his credulous reports about aliens in Area 51, began crafting it from stories told by the then-owners of the ranch.  He grafted those stories onto local UFO/paranormal folklore from the 1974 book “The Utah UFO Display” to create a longer history for the ranch’s supernatural events.

(In 1978, the “Uintah lights,” as they were then known, and their associated humming sounds were attributed to St. Elmo’s fire surrounding nighttime swarms of budworms “flying into high electric fields caused by thunderheads and high density particulate matter in the air.”)

Nothing recorded in the 1990s, however, was particularly unusual by the standards of supernatural folklore until Robert Bigelow began to pour money into “investigating” and Knapp amplified the mystery with a book sensationalizing the ranch as the world’s preeminent paranormal hotspot.

People tell stories.  A lot.  Money and publicity turn stories into legends.” – – Jason Colavito

MY PERSONAL COMMENT:

I am not totally skeptical about the existence of supernatural phenomena in this world that cannot be proven by empirical science as we know it.

I am a firm believer in God, and that is as supernatural as it can be, as far as I am concerned.

Any attempt to prove these phenomena by science is foolish at best.

The way this topic has been handled by the promoters of the UFO “Industry”, however,  is not commendable.
