West wants to chain the Russian bear, no way they'll stuff it

I will turn you around, put hooks into your jaws, and lead you out, with all your army, horses, and horsemen, all splendidly clothed, a great company with bucklers and shields, all of them handling swords.

Russian Ruble Crisis Spreads Across US, Emerging Markets And BRIC Nations

The ruble soared 10 percent Wednesday, boosted by the Russian central bank’s announcement that it is prepared to pump money into banks in 2015 and adopt a series of measures to “maintain the stability of the Russian financial sector.” But even as the currency appeared to rebound after a sharp decline earlier in the week, the ripple effects of crisis in the world’s sixth-largest economy will be felt far and wide.

“The currency has collapsed, and it’s possible that the economy could also collapse. They’ve become a wild card at this point, it’s a very dangerous situation,” said Stephen Guilfoyle, chief economist at Sarge986.com.

Russia’s $3.5 trillion economy depends heavily on exports, and oil accounts for roughly half of government revenue. As a result, the country is reeling from the combination of trade sanctions resulting from its invasion of Ukraine and Crimea, and the precipitous recent drop in global oil prices. And the meltdown will be a “headache” for the U.S., according to Ariel Cohen, director of the Center for Energy, National Resources and Geopolitics at the Institute for the Analysis of Global Security in Washington, D.C.

“We do not know and cannot predict the political ramifications of this economic crisis,” said Cohen. “Russian leaders didn’t realize how fragile the economy was and what the macroeconomic implications from the conflict in Ukraine would be.”

The ruble had previously tumbled over 20 percent against the dollar to 58 rubles per dollar on Tuesday, a record low. That came after Russia made a surprise move and hiked interest rates to 17 percent from 10 percent. In afternoon trading Wednesday, the ruble jumped over 10 percent to 62.04 rubles per dollar.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is benefiting from the 40 percent drop in global oil prices in the last six months. The country is also enjoying a stronger dollar compared to other major currencies. At the same time, global investors—especially Russians seeking a safe haven to park assets—are channeling funds into U.S. treasuries.

U.S. Fallout

Continued strength in the dollar could hurt U.S. multinational companies. “Between 40 percent to 50 percent of S&P 500 revenues are now overseas. So you’ll probably start to see companies pre-announce a negative impact in earnings from a stronger dollar in early January,” said Charlie Bilello, director of research at Pension Partners, LLC.

As global crude oil prices have fallen, it’s turned into a stimulus for the U.S. consumer, but it will begin to affect U.S. credit markets “because roughly 13 to 15 percent of the high-yield market is energy related and the credit spreads there have really widened,” Bilello said. Meaning, as global crude oil prices continue to plummet, contagion fears have risen as oil prices are hurting high-yield corporate bonds, which are now posing broader risks.

For a while, investors thought the spread would be contained in the energy sector, but in the last week it has spilled over to other sectors. “You’re seeing high-yield spreads in the U.S. really start to widen out at their highest level since 2012,” Bilello said.

That will also affect companies’ ability to raise more debt to buy back stocks. “To the extent that companies have higher borrowing costs, obviously with very slow top-line growth, any marginal increase in that borrowing cost is difficult to stomach,” Bilello said.

Global Fallout

Economists expect the Russian economy to contract 5 percent next year, according to Neil Shearing, chief emerging markets economist at Capital Economics.

“Russia is most likely headed for a prolonged recession. In conjunction, all of the BRICS [Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa] are looking quite poor, and the potential for boost from the emerging markets is looking quite poor,” Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist at Oxford Economics, said.

How wide might the contagion spread? “You’re really seeing the emerging markets getting hit,” said Bilello. The global economy is already seeing spillover effects in commodity-centric countries such as Venezuela and Brazil.

In addition, economists are watching Iran, West African nations such as Angola and Nigeria and the so-called BRICS nations.

Many countries can ill afford the contagion. Brazil went through a recessionary environment with almost no growth this year along with little growth expected next year. China is slowing, and its growth outlook is expected to fall below its 7 percent target next year, Daco said.

“It’s still highly inflationary for Russia and these other emerging countries. It’s much harder situation for them to pay back their denominated debts. That’s the real big issue,” Bilello said. Meaning, it’s going to put pressure on these countries, as well as the companies within those countries, to pay back debt and issue new debt.

In the midst of the Russian Central Bank trying to calm contagion fears, other economies around the world are also showing signs of weakness, as Japan unexpectedly fell into recession last quarter while China is experiencing its slowest growth since 2009. Meanwhile, Europe is teetering on a triple dip recession.

“We haven’t seen this in a long time where oil prices have fallen without a global recession,” Bilello said. “The U.S. is really the strong hand here, but global growth issues are also part of the decline, and people can’t totally dismiss that.”

Western Bankers Have Committed Two Acts of War Against Russia

In the past several days, Western bankers have committed two overt acts of war against Russia, namely, the plunging of oil prices and the recent cutting off of all liquidity to Russian banks. This reminds me of the days before World War II in which the United States followed a doctrine called the eight point plan which was designed to provoke Japan into attacking America so Roosevelt could use this as the excuse to get involved in World War II. As Mark Twain once said, “history doesn’t repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme”.

Ditching the Ruble

Has the American public received any reasonable explanation on how oil prices have plummeted at a time of year when they historically spike in order to price gouge holiday travelers? Of course there isn’t going to be any new revelations on this point. Here is the real story behind dropping oil prices.
Zero Hedge first reported  that brokers are now advising their clients that any existing Russian Ruble positions will be terminated without any further notice because of concerns related to the lack of Russian “capital controls”. At least that is the excuse that Western banks are using to run from the Ruble. The truth of the matter is that the West has declared war on Russia and its BRICS partners for undermining the Petrodollar.

No Turning Back

Ditching the Ruble marks a shift in Western banking strategy directed at the Russians. This change was necessitated because the West’s scheme to plunge the price of oil is not having an immediate effect on Russian economic actions. Although American consumers are reveling in their recent good fate with regard to the collapse of oil prices which have resulted in cheaper prices at the pump, there are some very dire consequences attached to American consumer’s good fortune.
The price of a barrel of oil is reaching the point where it will not be cost efficient to even ship the oil because to ship the oil is becoming more costly than the middle men transporting agents can  make. This will result in an artificial shortage of available gasoline. In the United States, shortages will soon appear and prices will spike to unimaginable levels. This will undoubtedly collapse our fragile economy.
The strategy of dropping oil prices in order to bring the Russians to their knees, will not work says Walker Todd. In a reported conversation with my colleague, Paul Martin, Todd told Martin that the low oil prices will not make Putin immediately blink because of (1) inflation and (2) Putin has a year’s reserve of oil and cash. In other words, the fuse has been lit for World War III. Does anyone think that Putin will allow his reserves to be depleted?

The Time Parameters for World War III

The Russian financial situation is about to go critical, despite their ability to temporarily whether the storm related to falling oil prices. The WSJ is reporting, the next driver of the Russian crisis is unquestionably going to begin in the Russian banking system because as the WSJ stated “…global banks are curtailing the flow of cash to Russian entities, a response to the ruble’s sharpest selloff since the 1998 financial crisis.” In other words, Western banks are cutting off all financial liquidity to Russia. This will soon paralyze the Russian economy.  
Russia’s banks are now isolated from the Western world. This is an act of war! The only question remaining is when will Putin launch a pre-emptive nuclear strike upon the West in order to preserve its economy? Will Putin wait until 25% of his oil reserves are gone? Will he wait until 50% of his oil reserves are spent? Before you answer, keep in mind that Putin will need his oil reserves to fight World War III.
After receiving this news, yesterday, I reached out to my contacts with the information hoping to have these developments debunked. Unfortunately, my sources provided  information which seems to collaborate the fact that we headed for war.

Disturbing Developments

I have learned that leaves for critical military personnel have been canceled effective on January 1, 2015. The leaves are  not uniformly cacanceledcross the breadth of the military. However, I have learned that military leaves for personnel serving in the nuclear command structure and specific elements of the nuclear submarine fleet are now canceled. The implication should be obvious as to what someone as to what the Pentagon believes is coming.
Schlumberger International is the largest oilfield corporation in the world employing 126,000 people in 85 countries. Recently, the son of Texas talk show host, Vinnie Pope, stated that Schlumberger has canceled all travel anywhere in the world. This travel ban began immediately after Thanksgiving. Clearly, Schlumberger is anticipating that something big is ready to happen. One could assume that whatever is coming is related to oil since this is the business of Schlumberger. It is interesting to note as an aside that  four years ago on my talk show, researcher Dianne Hunter reported the interconnections between Schlumberger to the Nature Conservancy and ultimately to the Queen of England.  These connections are worthy of further investigation which will be forthcoming


Clearly, something big is anticipated by people/corporations who are in position to know. I am hopeful that this article will shake the bushes a little bit in order to get a better grasp of the particular nature of what’s coming. One thing is for sure, Putin’s tolerance level for these sanctions will soon be exceeded.

The Shinar Directive - Part 3

While there was more than just sex going on in Genesis 6, I need to interject a couple of points for clarification:
1. Sex was not Satan’s idea; it was God’s. God meant for it to deepen the covenant relationship of marriage between a man and a woman. It was for pleasure, intimacy, and procreation.
2. Since God created sex, He also set boundaries for its proper use. These boundaries, as well as all others declared within the Word of God, were established because of God’s love for us. The act of sex is more than just a physical union. Mankind was created in the image of God; this is exemplified in our tripartite design. Sex brings all three aspects of our being into play, so our spirits, souls, and bodies are affected. Sexual union outside of the boundaries established by God can open the doors of Hell to the lives of those individuals and within society as a whole.
It is interesting to note that all of the angels revealed in the Bible are presented as male. (I am concerned about some of today’s ministers reportedly having visitations from female angels. This does not fit the biblical norm, and I believe deception is involved.) Their stories seem to deviate from the creation of mankind. God desired a helpmeet for Adam and created Eve from Adam’s own flesh. This action not only gave Adam a companion, wife, and friend, but it enabled him to procreate. This ability corresponds with God’s command for the two to “be fruitful and multiply.” No such command was ever given to the angels. It would seem that they were all created as males, and God never intended for them to procreate. So we see, in Genesis 6, why both the concepts of sex and procreation were such an overwhelming temptation for them. This understanding allows us to correlate within our thinking: (1) Genesis 6; (2) the men of Sodom and Gomorrah wanting to have sex with the angels; and (3) what Jesus said about angels in Matthew 22:30.
For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. (Matthew 22:30)
The subject of these verses in Matthew is marriage and procreation. It is not that the angels (presented as male) cannot have sex; rather, it is not in the plan of God for them to enter marriage or to procreate. This might have been the sin that caused them to lose their first estate (Jude 6). In the same way, after the resurrection, there will be no need for the glorified saints to procreate.
I. D. E. Thomas, in his now-classic book on Genesis 6 entitled, The Omega Conspiracy, shared a quote from renowned theologian, Francis A. Schaeffer, regarding his belief that Genesis 6 revealed that theBene Elohim were indeed angels and not descendants of Seth:
More and more we are finding that mythology in general though greatly contorted very often has some historic base. And the interesting thing is that one myth which occurs over and over again in many parts of the world is that somewhere a long time ago supernatural beings had sexual intercourse with natural women and produced a special breed of people.[i]
It is not specifically revealed in Scripture whether the Watchers fell away from God at the time of the fall of Lucifer or during the Genesis 6 account of the sin of mating with human females, but their falling away was alluded to twice in the New Testament:
For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as he is the image and glory of God: but the woman is the glory of the man.
For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man.
Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man.
For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels. (1 Corinthians 11:7–10, emphasis added)
The Greek word used for power here is exousia (ex-oo-see’-ah), which speaks of authority. When a woman comes under the authority of her husband as a part of covenant relationship, it closes the door of temptation (or possibly access) by angelic beings.
And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. (Jude 1:6)
Jude tells us that certain angels did not keep their “first estate,” but they left it for something else. He was connecting this, I believe, with Genesis 6. The sensual pleasures of sex and the power to procreate could have been what caused the angels to fall.
Jude 1:6 is a direct quote from the Book of Enoch. Although theBook of Enoch is not considered a part of biblical canon, it is within the Orthodox Ethiopian Church and was known and respected by the Jewish world in which the New Testament was written. An article on Wikipedia shares a possible reason it was never officially accepted as canon by the Jewish community at large:
Although evidently widely known during the development of the Hebrew Bible canon, 1 Enoch was excluded from both the formal canon of the Tanakh and the typical canon of the Septuagint and therefore, also the writings known today as the Deuterocanon. One possible reason for Jewish rejection of the book might be the textual nature of several early sections of the book that make use of material from the Torah; for example, 1 En 1 is a midrash of Deuteronomy 33.[ii]
  There are several aspects of the Book of Enoch that I find interesting:
· In 1 Corinthinians, Paul seems to allude to an understanding drawn from the Book of Enoch.
· Jude quotes directly from the Book of Enoch.
·  One of the angels (or Watchers, as described in the Book of Enoch) is notorious for his crimes against humanity. His name was Azazel. Here is what the Book of Enoch has to say about him: “The whole earth has been corrupted through the works that were taught by Azazel: to him ascribe all sin” (1 Enoch 10:8).
The Book of Enoch goes on to tell us regarding his judgment:
And again the Lord said to Raphael: “Bind Azazel hand and foot, and cast him into the darkness: and make an opening in the desert, which is in Dudael, and cast him therein. And place upon him rough and jagged rocks, and cover him with darkness, and let him abide there for ever, and cover his face that he may not see light. And on the day of the great judgment he shall be cast into the fire.” (1 Enoch 10:4–6)
It is interesting that the scapegoat of Leviticus 16 is connected to Azazel, and its fate is similar to his own.
And Aaron shall cast lots upon the two goats; one lot for the Lord, and the other lot for the scapegoat. (Leviticus 16:8)
And when he hath made an end of reconciling the holy place, and the tabernacle of the congregation, and the altar, he shall bring the live goat:
And Aaron shall lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions in all their sins, putting them upon the head of the goat, and shall send him away by the hand of a fit man into the wilderness:
And the goat shall bear upon him all their iniquities unto a land not inhabited: and he shall let go the goat in the wilderness. (Leviticus 16:20–22)
The Hebrew word in Leviticus 16:8 for “scapegoat” is azazel (az-aw-zale’).[iii]
There was a possible trade agreement going on between the Watchers and mankind: the trading ofwomen for knowledge and technology. In exchange for access to human women, the Watchers began teaching mankind knowledge drawn from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that polluted their minds. According to the Book of Enoch, that is exactly what Azazel did:
And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all colouring tinctures.
And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. (1 Enoch 8:1–2)
Thou seest what Azazel hath done, who hath taught all unrighteousness on earth and revealed the eternal secrets which were (preserved) in heaven, which men were striving to learn. (1 Enoch 9:5, emphasis added)
I also believe that the Watchers and their children, the Nephilim, introduced sexual perversions to mankind, such as homosexuality, pedophilia, and bestiality. Christian researcher Stephen Quayle, in his groundbreaking book, Aliens & Fallen Angels: The Sexual Corruption of the Human Race, shares the following:
Ancient historians had a variety of horrors to tell about the Celtae giants, including the fact that they were homosexuals (another crime which dictated the death penalty under Mosaic Law). Athenaeus states that the giants were accustomed to sleeping with not one but two boys. The historian Diodorus also suggested that homosexuality was rampant among the giants when he wrote:
Although their wives were comely, they have very little to do with them, but raged with lust in outlandish fashion for the embraces of males. And the most astonishing thing of all is that they feel no concern for their proper dignity but prostitute to others without a qualm the flower of their bodies; nor do they consider this a disgraceful thing to do, but rather when anyone of them is thus approached and refuses the favor offered him, this they consider an act of dishonor.[iv]
Quayle goes on to share the connection of the Watchers and the practice of bestiality:
While such a possibility is almost too repulsive to imagine, the bestiality of Sodom and Gomorra and the linkage of these two cities to the practices of the fallen angels elsewhere in the Bible suggest such hideous acts might be considered a possibility.
Interestingly, a Canaanite tablet contains several verses claiming that such matings took place between animals and the god Baal:
He loved a heifer in the pasture,
He lay with her seventy-seven times,
She made him mount eighty-eight times,
She conceived and gave birth to his likeness.[v]
From all the research I have completed over the past several decades, I have found a weaving of the sexual practices of the Watchers and Nephilim with the practice of many forms of ritual magic. One such practice combines homosexuality and pedophilia; it is known as Transyuggothian Magic. This horrific practice allows the male sorcerer to access other dimensions or galaxies to commune with supposed older and stronger entities than the God of the Bible through sex with young boys. Through this commune, spiritual, occult power is drawn through the young boy to empower the sorcerer. This defilement also serves as sexual vampirism, in which the sorcerer draws the life force of the young boy to extend his own life—a vain attempt to achieve immortality. Dr. Bill Schnoebelen reveals in his video series, Exposing the Illuminati from Within, that this was a common practice with Aleister Crowley (one of the most well-known sorcerers and Freemasons of the past century) and members of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO), and that it is also the royal secret of the 32nd degree of Freemasonry (the certificate of the 32nd degree declares that the Freemason holds the secret, but none are told what it actually is—a common practice in occult circles).
The list of connections between deviate sexual practices/lifestyles and the occult could easily become a book in itself. The link between the two is real and is manifested in many levels, from combining forces to change societal norms to ritualistic magic forbidden by Scripture. There is a correlation between the new sexual revolution being forced upon us worldwide today, the waning of the influence of Christianity in the Northern Hemisphere, and the expansion of all occult groups within our society. Truly, the days of Noah are unfolding before our very eyes.
Then the Book of Enoch goes on to tell us that the Watchers began revealing eternal secrets that were preserved in Heaven, and that men were striving to learn them. Today, all esoteric societies are striving to once again discover and use these eternal secrets to enslave mankind and to return to the “old glory days” before Almighty God intervened! Rediscovering Atlantis is a theme that permeates occult literature to include the influential writings of H. P. Blavatsky, Sir Francis Bacon, and Masonic philosopher, Manly P. Hall, just to name a few. This desire was embedded within the Thule Society that groomed Adolf Hitler and was the goal of the Third Reich. The story of Atlantis, in which super humans lived and ultimate knowledge had been obtained, was destroyed by a catastrophic flood. Perhaps Atlantis (or some variation of its name within occult lore) was a city inhabited by the Watchers and their children, the Nephilim. This legendary city might have served as the center of culture, power, and learning of the forbidden arts in the pre-antediluvian world. It would appear that the Luciferian Elite are striving to recreate their City of Gold.
We need to reevaluate our perspective of the times of Noah. This was not a time when barbarians wandered around in small groups that lacked any type of civilization. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Again, I refer to the research of George H. Pember. He provides the following observations regarding the Antediluvian Age:
1. Cain had taught them to settle in communities, and build cities; and the sons of Lamech—speedily followed, no doubt, by many others—had introduced the mechanical and fine arts, and had devised unlawful means of evading the labour imposed by the curse.[vi]
2. And yet so great had been their intellectual power that the famous library of Agane, founded at the time by Sargon I, was stocked with books “which were either translated from Accadian originally, or else based on Accadian texts, and filled with technical words which belonged to the old language.”[vii]
3. We have evidence that in very early times there were well-known libraries at Erech, Ur, Cutha, and Larsa, to which observatories and universities were attached.
If, then, we give but their fair weight to these considerations, we seem compelled to admit that the antediluvians may have attained a perfection in civilization and high culture that has scarcely yet been recovered, much as we pride ourselves upon our own times.[viii]
This exchange of women for advanced (forbidden) knowledge, technology, and civil advancement is not limited to the Antediluvian Age. This same theme of women producing offspring of the gods and the people receiving advanced information and technology is seen throughout the ancient world. Even many of the cultures of ancient Mesa America, to include both the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, are filled with such stories. It should be noted that both of their cultures possessed advanced knowledge that was impossible with their level of technology. Before Nazi Germany exploded on the scene with a progressive society that boasted of fluoridated water, complete gun control, a robust economy, and a desire to bring humanity to a new level of perfection through what they termed as the “Aryan Race,” they were obsessed with reconnecting to the old gods and practicing something called transchanneling. Transchanneling was similar to the work of a medium who would speak with the dead, except their mediums would communicate with aliens (or beings from another dimension). The established communion with these otherworldly beings provided the technological superiority that Nazi Germany had at the beginning of World War II—from rockets to the first jet fighters. We also need to ask ourselves: Were all of the experiments conducted by Nazi scientists in the horrors of the concentration camps ideas of their own making, or were they inspired by the entities they were in communion with? Remember, the knowledge they gained was considered so valuable that the nations that conquered Germany divided up the scientists to tap into that vast, cutting-edge research. In our own country, under Operation Paperclip, scores of Nazi scientists were secretly brought to our nation. Many of these individuals were instrumental in the founding of US institutions that are in the forefront of influence in our society today: from the CIA to NASA.
I also find it interesting that there were UFO sightings during World War II. Our fighter pilots called them “Foo Fighters.” Wikipedia provides the following information on this phenomenon:
The term foo fighter was used by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II to describe various UFOs or mysterious aerial phenomena seen in the skies over both the European and Pacific theaters of operations.
Though “foo fighter” initially described a type of UFO reported and named by the U.S. 415th Night Fighter Squadron, the term was also commonly used to mean any UFO sighting from that period. Formally reported from November 1944 onwards, witnesses often assumed that the foo fighters were secret weapons employed by the enemy.[ix]
Did the pagan rituals practiced by the SS of Nazi Germany open portals into outer darkness and allow the very Watchers that God had cast out in the times of Noah to enter back into the earth? New revelations have come to light in the eye-opening documentary entitled Blood Sacrifice—Cleansing the Soil for the Aryan Antichrist by Cutting Edge Studios. The researchers of this documentary found eyewitnesses of Nazi movements right before the end of World War II. Trucks were loaded with the ashes of all those killed in the concentration camps (both Jews and Gentiles) to be used in occult rituals throughout Europe. The purpose of the rituals was to cleanse the land of the effects of Christianity and to rededicate it back to the old gods. (Christianity has been in decline in Europe ever since.)
After World War II, the United States began to experience numerous UFO sightings. At first, the military was concerned that these sightings were new secret weapons from the Soviet Union or another enemy. After the alleged Roswell crash, the attitude of the US government and the military changed drastically. They moved from worrying about secret weapons to actively discrediting their reality. From that point on, two things began to happen in the US: 1) Citizens were abducted and had sexual reproductive experiments conducted on them;[x] and 2) technological advancement exploded within our nation. Has America been exchanging access to our citizens for advanced knowledge since the end of WWII? Let’s address this from the symptomological standpoint regarding the influence of the Watchers.
1. Has there been a great acceleration of knowledge that surpasses that of previous generations?
2. Has there been a refining of civilization and technology with a corresponding level of darkness released with it?
3. It there a move within our civilization to cast off all boundaries (restraints) set by God for a more enlightened view?
4. Has there been an increase in sexual perversion that far surpasses historical norms?
If you answered “yes” to these questions, the underlying disease in our society is the tacit influence of the Watchers from behind the closed doors of our government and the Luciferian Elite.

The Nephilim—Human 2.0?

There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown. (Genesis 6:4)
An important word I want to look at in this Scripture is “giants.” In Hebrew, the word is nephiyl (nef-eel’), and it means “giants, the Nephilim.”[xi]
The New American Commentary provides the following insights regarding the usage of the term “Nephilim.”
“Nephilim” is a transliteration of the Hebrew, not a translation, which indicates a group or class. It is commonly related to nāpal, meaning “to fall”; thus the Nephilim are considered “the Fallen Ones.” If so, does this refer to their expulsion from heaven, their death as “fallen” in battle, or to their moral degeneracy? Another proposal is the related noun nēpel, meaning“miscarriage” (Job 3:16; Ps 58:8 [9]; Eccl 6:3), suggesting that they were unusual in appearance since they were born by miscarriage. The terms “fallen” and “warriors” occur repeatedly in Ezekiel’s oracles against the nations (Ezek 32:20–27) whose armies fall in battle; this may have alluded to 6:1–4. Ezekiel’s use of “fallen,” however, is likely a sound play on the word “Nephilim” and not derived from an etymological association.
The traditional English rendering “giants” (AV) follows the LXX Septuagint (and ancient versions), which translates gígantes for Hebrew nĕpilîm (Nephilim). We can attribute this most likely to the influence of the later account recorded in Num 13:33. The frightened Israelite spies marveled at the exceptional height of the Nephilim, remarking that the Hebrews were no more than like “grasshoppers” before them. Later Jewish literature interpreted the Nephilim as giants and referred to their infamous pride and wickedness.[xii] (Emphasis added)
A Commentary of the Holy Scriptures: Genesis also provides the confirmation that these Nephilim were the offspring of angels:
Delitzsch, nevertheless, together with Hofmann, prefers to explain it as the fallen, namely, from heaven, because begotten by heavenly beings. Here from to falt, would he make to fall from, and from this again, to fall from heaven; then this is made to mean begotten of heavenly beings! The sense, cadentes, defectores, apostatœ (see Gesenius), would be more near the truth. “There were giants” (הָיוּ), not, there became giants, which would have required וַיִּהְיוּ for its expression (see Keil). These giants, or powerful men, are already in near cotemporaneity with the transgression of these mesalliances (in those very same days), and this warrants the conclusion of Luther, that these powerful men were doers of violent deeds.[xiii](Emphasis added)
Finally, Gesenius’ Hebrew and Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament Scriptures adds another piece to our exegetical puzzle.
נָפִיל only in pl. נְפִילִים m. giants, Gen. 6:4; Nu. 13:33. So all the ancient versions (Chald. נִפְלָאthe giant in the sky, i.e. the constellation Orion, plur. the greater constellations). The etymology of this word is uncertain. Some have compared نَبِيلُنَبِيلَةُ, which Gigg. and Cast. render, great, large in body; but this is incorrect; for it means, excellent, noble, skilful. I prefer with the Hebrew interpreters and Aqu. (ἐπιπίπτοντες) falling on, attacking, so that נָפִיל is of intransitive signification. Those who used to interpret the passage in Genesis of the fall of the angels, were accustomed to render נפילים fallers, rebels, apostates.[xiv]
From these three highly respected Christian references, we can deduce the following:
·  The Nephilim were the offspring of angels (most likely a specific class of angels described in 1 Enoch as Watchers).
·  The term “Nephilim” would seem to indicate a new classification or group of beings, separate for the normal human population.
The Nephilim possessed no godly characteristics. They were rebels against anything godly, representing those fallen from heaven, and were complete apostates (there was no hope for redemption). Violence and an insatiable appetite for every sinful practice were fully embodied within their nature.
These creatures were so unnatural that the women’s bodies would reject them, and they would miscarry these abominations. The unearthly strength of these creatures was manifested in their ability to survive the miscarriages and continue to grow into adulthood.
I want to refer back to my quote from renowned theologian, Francis A. Schaeffer:
More and more we are finding that mythology in general though greatly contorted very often has some historic base. And the interesting thing is that one myth which occurs over and over again in many parts of the world is that somewhere a long time ago supernatural beings had sexual intercourse with natural women and produced a special breed of people.[xv]
Mythology is replete with stories of men who were half god or demigod, such as the legendary Hercules. We also find stories of beings that were half man and half animal that possibly fit the narrative of “Baal and the Heifer” referred to by Stephen Quayle from the ancient Canaanite tablet. Such legends seem to be derived from nothing more than the imaginations of primitive men, until recently when Russia announced that it discovered the ancient remains of a satyr in an archeological dig.[xvi] It should be noted that both Christian researchers Stephen Quayle and Dr. L. A. Marzulli have discovered a planned, massive cover-up of such findings by the world’s Elite, to include the Smithsonian Institute here in the US. While the Elite promote evolution in our schools (something they do not believe in themselves) and herald the benefits of the grand transhumanist endeavor to transform mankind into Human 2.0, they are actively hiding the evidence that this transformation has already occurred in human history. This transformation, referred to in Genesis 6, resulted in the unprecedented wrath of God, in which all mankind was destroyed except for eight souls. (Interestingly, eight is the biblical number for new beginnings.)
What is the end game for all of this? It is possibly found in the very name “Nephilim.” Remember Gesenius’ rendering of the Hebrew word “Nephilim” as “apostate”? There was no redemption possible for the Nephilim, only destruction and divine judgment. The Word also tells us in Isaiah 26:14:
They are dead, they shall not live; they are deceased, they shall not rise: therefore hast thou visited and destroyed them, and made all their memory to perish.
Finis Dake, in his Annotated Reference Bible, shares from his research that this verse indeed refers to the Nephilim:
Hebrew: rapha’ (HSN-), translated dead (Isa. 26:19; 14:9; Job 26:5; Ps. 88:10–11; Prov. 2:18; 9:18; 21:16); deceased (Isa. 26:14); giants (Dt. 2:11, 20; 3:11,13; Josh. 12:4; 13:12; 15:8; 17:15; 18:16; 2 Sam. 21:16–22; 1 Chr. 20:4–8); and Rephaim (Isa. 17:5; Gen. 14:5; 15:20; 2 Sam. 5:18, 22; 23:13; 1 Chr. 11:15; 14:9). In the eight places where it is translated dead and deceased it should have been retained as a proper name—Rephaim, as follows:
1. Rephaim under waters.
2. Shall the Rephaim arise and praise You? (Ps. 88:10–11)
3. Her paths unto the Rephaim. (Prov. 2:18)
4. The Rephaim are there. (Prov. 9:18).
5. Congregation to the Rephaim. (Prov. 21:16)
6. It stirreth up the Rephaim for you. (Isa. 14:9)
7. They are Rephaim. (Isa. 26:14)
8. The earth shall cast out the Rephaim.
The Rephaim were the other lords of Isa 26:13; they shall not rise because God visited and destroyed them (Isa 26:14). This plainly teaches that the giants or Rephaim have no resurrection like the dead of Israel referred to in Isa 26:19. They were the offspring of fallen angels, not ordinary men who do have a resurrection.[xvii]
Regarding Genesis 6, I believe that the original intent of the kingdom of darkness was to accomplish two goals:
1. To so contaminate the human genome that there would be no pure human bloodline left for Messiah (the Seed of the women) to be born from. Note: Genesis 6:9 refers to Noah being “perfect in his generations,” annotating him and his family as still being completely Human 1.0.
2. To replace the image of God within mankind with the image of the Beast. This would render mankind unredeemable. Although the image of God is marred within sinful man, it still provides a conscience. The conscience not only recognizes sin but the need for repentance. If that image could be replaced with another one (i.e., the image of the Beast), there would be no recognition of sin, and repentance would be impossible. This is possibly why there is no hope for those who receive the mark of the Beast and worship his image in the book of Revelation. (See my chapter entitled, “A New Theory on the Image of the Beast and the New Conscience,” in the book, Blood on the Altar: The Coming War between Christian vs. Christian, Defender Publishing.)
The end game of the Elite is to completely remove the image of God from mankind through the so-called science of transhumanism. Through Watcher-inspired technology, they are endeavoring to bypass the modification that Almighty God accomplished genetically within mankind (and animal kind) at the Flood to enable the cross-species hybridization once again. Their idea of a utopian society is a return to Atlantis. In this new Atlantis, humans and the God of the Bible would no longer be welcomed. Only those with genetically altered bodies and enlightened souls that have become Nietzsche’s New Man (beyond good and evil) would be welcomed there. Their idea of Utopia is nothing more than Lucifer’s promise of Hell on earth. No wonder the Word of God provides this end-time promise to the Remnant:
And except that the Lord had shortened those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened the days. (Mark 13:20)
In the next entry, we will examine the continuation of this biblical conspiracy against God and mankind in the stories of Nimrod and the Tower of Babel.

US State Dept: Obama already signed new ‘Russia sanctions bill’

The Real Reason the U.S. is Targeting Russia

Russia risks Soviet-style collapse as rouble defence fails

Russia has lost control of its economy and may be forced to impose Soviet-style exchange controls after "shock and awe" action by the central bank failed to stem the collapse of the rouble.

“The situation is critical,” said the central bank’s vice-chairman, Sergei Shvetsov. “What is happening is a nightmare that we could not even have imagined a year ago."

The currency crashed to 100 against the euro in the biggest one-day drop since the default crisis in 1998 as capital flight gathered pace, despite a drastic rise in interest rates to 17pc intended to crush speculators and show resolve.

Yields on two-year Russian bonds spiralled to 15.36pc, while credit default swaps are pricing in a one-third chance of a sovereign default. The shares of Russia’s biggest lender, Sberbank, fell 18pc.

Neil Shearing, from Capital Economics, said the spectacular failure of the rate shock may bring matters to a head. “If a rise of 650 basis points won’t do the job, we are near the end. That means stringent capital controls,” he said.

Michal Dybula, from BNP Paribas, said the rouble's plunge risks setting off a systemic bank run. “A large-scale run on deposits, once under way, would make capital controls pretty much unavoidable,” he said, adding that the authorities may start by forcing state-controlled companies to sell foreign assets and repatriate funds.

In Washington, the White House said it had no intention of easing pressure on Russia to halt the freefall. "It is president Vladimir Putin's decision to make. The aim is to sharpen the choice that he faces," it said.

President Barack Obama will not veto a law passed by Congress imposing a raft of new sanctions against Russia, even though he warned previously that it goes too far for European leaders and risks splitting the trans-Atlantic front. The measures include $350m of military assistance to Ukraine, and authorize Mr Obama to impose curbs on energy companies investing in Russia, as well as to prohibit credit to Gazprom.

Sergei Lavrov, Russia's foreign minister, said it is now clear that the US aim is to topple Mr Putin through "regime change" but vowed that the Russian people would rise in defiance. “We have been in much worse situations in our history, and every time we have got out of our fix much stronger,” he said.

After years of bluster and suggestions by Mr Putin that the US is a paper tiger, the Kremlin is now coming face to face with the cataclysmic consequences of what it has done by invading Ukraine and changing Europe's borders by force. By the same token, Washington needs to move with care since it would be a geostrategic miscalculation of the first order to push a nuclear-armed Russia too far into a corner, or to perpetuatue a cycle of grievance.

Anthony Peters, from SwissInvest, said Russia's leaders had misled their own people and have until now been in denial about the crisis engulfing them. "Not since Soviet times have we seen such steadfast refusal by the Kremlin to acknowledge the presence of severe political and economic problems while sacrificing the people in the name of orthodoxy. The Russian people are legendarily stoic in the face of hardships but beware if, and when, their patience runs out,” he said.

- Russia's economic crisis: live

The rouble crash has doubled the cost of servicing nearly $700bn of external debt owed by Russian banks, companies and state bodies, mostly in dollars. They must repay $30bn this month and a further $100bn next year. Oil giant Rosneft has requested $49bn of state aid to weather the crisis.

Traders in Moscow expressed fury at the central bank’s refusal to deploy its $416bn of foreign reserves to “turbo-charge” the defence of the rouble, though the authorities may have intervened in late trading. The currency clawed back some ground - to 69 against the dollar - after one of the wildest days of the modern era. Eugene Kogan, from Moscow Partners, said the Russian stock market faces “slow death” over the next six months as liquidity vanishes.

It is clear that the authorities are guarding their reserves jealously after burning through $100bn this year to little avail. BNP’s Tatiana Tchembarova said what remains no longer covers external debt, unlike 2008 when there was still ample cover. “In addition to being twice as levered, Russia is entering this crisis with lower reserves,” she said.

The government has already committed $143bn in foreign reserve spending for next year. “We think that more will be required to support Russia’s banking system,” she said. The Kremlin had to spend $170bn rescuing the banks in the 2008-2009 crisis.

Lubomir Mitov, from the Institute of International Finance, said any fall in reserves below $330bn could prove dangerous, given the scale of foreign debt and a confluence of pressures. “It is a perfect storm. Each $10 fall in the price of oil reduces export revenues by some 2pc of GDP. A decline of this magnitude could shift the current account to a 3.5pc deficit,” he said. The total “financing gap” could soon reach 10pc of GDP due to the combined effects of capital flight and sanctions.

The central bank knows that Russia’s seemingly large reserves are a Maginot Line. Yet its attempt to defend the rouble only by raising rates is itself lethal. Even before the latest move it warned that the economy could contract by 4.7pc next year in a scenario of $60 oil prices.

The slump may now be far worse as a violent monetary squeeze sends tremors through the banking system and sets off a wave of corporate bankruptcies. BNP Paribas said each 100-basis point rise in rates cuts 0.8pc off GDP a year later. Rates have risen 750 points in a week.

Lars Christensen, from Danske Bank, said the Kremlin’s actions have led to the “absolutely worst possible outcome” since the botched move is enough to do grave damage, without solving anything. “They should have let the currency go rather than killing the economy. Investment is in freefall, and I fear this shock is going to be even bigger than in 2008-2009. Nothing suggests that oil is going to rebound quickly this time,” he said.

Growth has held up over recent months but this may be an illusion of the crisis itself as people scramble to rid themselves of roubles to buy homes, cars, washing machines or anything that keeps its value. Ikea has seen a surge of orders for new kitchens. This is a one-off effect, and creates a cliff-edge from the economy next year.

The rouble trauma came as premier Dmitry Medvedev held an emergency meeting with economic planners, and rumours swirled of a sweeping purge at the top of Kremlin. Officials denied there were any plans for capital controls after the meeting.

There is no sign yet of relief from the oil markets. Brent crude fell below $59 a barrel on Tuesday for the first time since the depths of the Great Recession in 2009. The fallout from the crisis is already hitting banks linked to Russia and Ukraine. The share price of Austria’s Raiffeisen fell 8pc in Vienna. More than 240pc of its tangible equity is exposed to the region. The biggest external lender is France’s Societe Generale, with €25bn of exposure, or 62pc of tangible equity.

Contagion is spreading across the emerging market nexus, hitting countries such as Turkey and India that should be beneficiaries of lower oil prices. “There is absolutely no liquidity anywhere. The system is stressed and we have a crunch all over the place,” said one hedge fund trader.

There are signs that the sell-off is becoming self-feeding as investors withdraw money from emerging market bond funds, forcing the funds to liquidate holdings into the downturn. In some cases managers are acting tactically, selling “proxies” such as Turkish debt given the difficulty of exiting Russian positions.

The rouble has now fallen 56pc against the dollar over the past year. Russian GDP has shrunk to $1.1 trillion, smaller than the economy of Texas, and half the size of Italy’s. The effect has been to double Russia’s external debt to at least 70pc of GDP, a high-risk level for rating agencies.

“A Russian downgrade to junk is only a matter or time,” said Tim Ash, from Standard Bank.

Reports of U.S. Ground Fighters Emerge as ISIS Gains in Iraq

No matter how many bombs Americans drop on ISIS forces, Iraqi troops are losing ground. If al-Anbar is lost, the entire Iraqi front dynamic will shift to favor ISIS again, and months of the U.S.-led air campaign will have been wasted.

Maybe that’s why we had reports from an Iraqi field commander on Tuesday that U.S. forces had their first ground clash with ISIS terrorists at midnight on Monday, Baghdad time. ISIS fighters were forced to withdraw after U.S. air force fighters bombed enemy positions.

The minor victory was well timed. After six weeks of defeats in Iraq, ISIS made its first gains in the western province of al-Anbar last week, threatening the remaining Iraqi government forces and its tribal Sunni allies who are defending the remaining cities and army camps there.

“We have ammunition to fight ISIS for five days only. After that, we will not be able to fight them with their advanced arms,” said Sheikh Naeim al-Gaud, a tribal leader who suffered hundreds of losses in a massacre committed by ISIS several weeks ago near the city of Hit, western Iraq.

A lot is riding on Al-Anbar. It’s Iraq’s largest province, about one-third the size of Iraq. It borders Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia. It also borders Baghdad, Babil, Karbala, Najaf, Salahuddin and Nineveh provinces. Most of the province is controlled by ISIS. Nevertheless, the provincial capital, Ramadi, is divided between the Iraqi government and ISIS. Several other towns are still controlled by the government as well, including an army camp that hosts 100 U.S. soldiers.

On the days following al-Gaud’s warning, ISIS retook many areas to the west of Ramadi, near the town of al-Baghdadi, forcing the army and its allies to halt an attack to restore the city of Hit. Shekh al-Gaud said he only received 72 AK-47 rifles that are out of service despite his public appeals for help. He also said that the army’s seventh division, which is fighting ISIS in his area, has no tanks at all while ISIS has many of them. His tribal fighters used rocket-propelled grenades, or RPGs, to counter ISIS tanks. That is no longer working. “They have developed a way to make their tanks avoid our rockets.”

He lost 762 members of his tribe who were killed by ISIS.

One of the reasons the Iraqi government hesitates to arm the tribes in al-Anbar is that some of the weapons sent previously ended up in ISIS hands. “I was told that 4000 Russian PKCs heavy machine guns were sent before. 800 of them ended up with ISIS,” al-Gaud said.
