10/10/05 - 10/16/05

As I've been recording this journal for the past 5 months or so, I've noticed that the nature of these headlines are becoming more concentrated with significant events as time has passed. When I started recording this back in May, I planned on stopping this blog if things eventually started to level out and continue as normal. Obviously that hasn't happened. At this rate, It doesn't seem like it's going to end anytime soon.

Holy crap! Never before have I seen so many people die of natural disasters than in the past year. Starting with the Asian tsunami in December 2004, it has been one thing after another. There is no doubt in my mind that we have reached a “de-population” stage. I have no idea which ones are induced by HAARP and which ones are natural but it seems as if each disaster is perpetuating the next. When the 9.0 earthquake that caused the Asian tsunami caused the earth to ring like a bell for months, it may have weakened the existing fault lines and act as a catalyst for more frequent, violent earthquakes. Remember, earthquakes in one place after another is a major sign of the return of Christ. It must be getting close.

Pakistan: Quake toll reaches 30,000

Sunday 09 October 2005, 13:50 Makka Time, 10:50 GMT
The estimated toll of the South Asian earthquake on Saturday has hit 30,000, Pakistan-administered Kashmir's works and communication minister says.
"Our rough estimates say more than 30,000 people have died in the earthquake in Kashmir," minister Tariq Farooq said on Sunday.
"There are cities, there are towns which have been completely
destroyed. Muzaffarabad is devastated," he added, referring to the capital of Pakistan's sector of disputed Kashmir.
Pakistan's private Aaj television reported the toll in Pakistan-controlled Kashmir and northwest Pakistan to be more than 25,000. It did not cite a source. Officials have said the toll will rise.
Bodies lay in the streets and villagers pulled debris from collapsed schools and mud-brick homes with their bare hands on Sunday, desperate to find survivors from the 7.6-magnitude quake that struck Pakistan and India.
The quake that struck the mountainous Kashmir region flattened dozens of villages, killing farmers, homemakers, soldiers and schoolgirls, and triggered landslides that blocked rescuers from reaching many devastated areas.
Pakistan hardest hit
The severest destruction was in Pakistan, where Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao said on Sunday that 19,136 people were confirmed to have died - 17,388 of them in Pakistani Kashmir where the quake was centred.
A further 42,397 were confirmed injured, he added.
Chief military spokesman Major-General Shaukat Sultan said: "We are handling the worst disaster in Pakistan's history."
The earthquake, which struck just before 9am, caused buildings to sway for about a minute in the capitals of
Afghanistan, Pakistan and India, an area about 1000km across.
Aftershocks rattled the region for hours afterwards, and
hospitals moved quake victims onto lawns, fearing tremors
could cause more damage.
The US Geological Survey reported 22 aftershocks in the
24 hours after the quake, including a 6.2-magnitude
On Sunday, Pakistani military helicopters ferried troops and supplies to some areas, but there was no sign of government help in Balakot, a northern village of 30,000 where the quake levelled the main bazaar, crushing shoppers.
No help
Injured people covered by shawls lay in the street, waiting for medical care. Residents carried bodies on wooden planks. The bodies of four children, aged between four and six years old, lay under a sheet of corrugated iron. Relatives said they were trying to find sheets to wrap the bodies.
"We don't have anything to bury them with," said a cousin, Saqib Swati.

Some victims have lamented the
lack of help from the government
Nearby, Faizan Farooq, a 19-year-old business administration student, stood outside the rubble of his four-storey school, where at least 250 pupils were feared trapped. Dozens of villagers, some with sledgehammers but many without any tools, pulled at the debris and carried away bodies.
Farooq said he could hear children under the rubble crying for help immediately after the disaster.
"Now there's no sign of life," he said. "We can't do this without the army's help. Nobody has come here to help us."
Elsewhere in Balakot, shop owner Mohammed Iqbal said two
primary schools, one for boys and one for girls, also collapsed.
He estimated that more than 500 students had been killed.
India reported at least 360 people killed and 900 injured when the quake collapsed houses and other buildings in Jammu-Kashmir state. Most of the deaths occurred in the border towns of Uri, Tangdar and Punch and in the city of Srinagar, said B B Vyas, the state's divisional commissioner.
Afghanistan reported one death: An 11-year-old girl crushed when a wall in her home collapsed, police official Gafar Khan said.
An eight-member UN team of top disaster coordination officials was due to arrive in Islamabad on Sunday to plan the global body's response.

Here is a preview of the next major event in the globalists’ agenda to open the final act of this current “old world” paradigm before the emergence of a new false paradigm which will change the way people look at the world forever, unite the world into one global system and prepare the way for the alien anti-christ.

Edging Towards Disaster with Iran
by Mike Whitney
“If Israel takes such crazy actions as attacking our nuclear facilities, we will give it an unforgettable lesson.” Iranian Parliament-Speaker, Haddad Adel

The prospect of war breaking out between the United States and Iran is more likely by the day. Still, for the most part, the American public seems strangely unaware of the growing danger. In late September Iran began conducting major military exercises in the southwestern province of Khuzestan, where officials claim that US agents have infiltrated and are carrying out destabilizing activities. Tehran has deployed 100,000 soldiers to the oil-rich region to address the growing unrest and to carry out maneuvers which anticipate a preemptive invasion by the US.

These signs of mounting tensions are further amplified by a resolution that was passed by the UN’s nuclear watchdog agency (IAEA) two weeks ago. The agency voted by a slim majority to bring Iran before the UN Security Council for “non-compliance” with its treaty requirements under the terms of the NPT (Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty)

The US-backed resolution was pushed through the IAEA to make it appear as though Iran is conducting a secret nuclear weapons program. No evidence of such a program has ever been verified and the agency’s chief, Mohammad Elbaradei, has repeatedly given Iran a clean bill of health on all matters related to its compliance with treaty obligations.

The “nuclear weapons” issue is a red herring similar to the WMD ruse prior to the war with Iraq. It provides the US and Israel with some cover of legitimacy for future attacks on Iranian weapons-sites. By disarming Iran, the Bush administration will have eliminated a long-term regional competitor to Israel and will be able to proceed with the neocon master-plan to redraw the map of the Middle East to suit US interests.

Tehran, of course, is taking these threats seriously and is increasingly moving towards a war-time footing.

The resignation of one of Iran’s most prominent diplomats, Mohammad Javad Zarif, from Iran’s nuclear negotiating team, is an indication that positions are hardening and that a war may be forthcoming. Zarif was seen as a moderating influence and was in favor of improving relations with the West. That has changed with the increasing saber-rattling from across the Atlantic and with the threat of censure from the IAEA.

If Washington intended to provoke another war, they have certainly succeeded. In fact, it was the Bush administrations’ tough-talk that that gave rise to Iran’s current hard-line President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Ahmadinejad has responded to Bush’s incendiary rhetoric by putting the suspected-nuclear program under military control. The administration, impervious to their repeated policy failures, continues to blunder ahead paving the way to Armageddon.

At present, both the British and American high-commands are claiming that Tehran is directly involved in providing the Iraqi resistance with bomb-making capability. BBC is reporting that “British officials have linked the type of bombs used in the attacks to Iran’s Revolutionary Guards.” The charges reiterate the earlier claims by Rumsfeld that Iran was providing military hardware and roadside bombs to the resistance.

Iranian spokesman Hamid Reza-Asefi has vehemently denied the charges saying, “This is a lie. The British are the cause of instability and crisis in Iraq.…From the very beginning, we have stated our position very clearly - a stable Iraq is in our interests and that is what the Iraqi authorities have said themselves on many occasions."

It is impossible to imagine how fueling the unrest in Iraq would serve Iran’s interests especially since the resistance is overwhelmingly Sunni (Iranians are Shi’ites) There’s also the possibility that Iran’s involvement would prompt a nuclear strikes from the United States; hardly the reaction that the wary Mullahs might covet. So far, not one Iranian fighter has been captured in the ongoing conflict in Iraq, nor is there any proof that Iran is providing bomb-making material to the resistance. It is impossible to exclude the possibility that these are just more baseless claims intended to justify a preemptive attack.

The Bourse; Iran’s death-warrant

Iran’s future oil and natural gas wealth foreshadow its growth into a regional competitor to Israel as well as an energy-independent powerhouse. Their stated intention to sell resources via their own, homegrown bourse, is a direct threat to the existing economic system. It would greatly increase trade in petro-euros and send the dollar into a downward spiral. The importance of this cannot be overstated. The heart-and-soul of the empire is the Greenback; that flaccid, debt-ridden hoax that props-up the entire rickety structure of state-terror. The $8 trillion dollars of accumulated debt that underwrites the greenback requires that the world continue to buy oil in dollars. The transition from dollars to petro-euros is a direct assault on a system that forces the lavish debt of the wealthiest nations onto the shoulders of the world’s poorest people. If the dollar falls from its place of prominence then the global power-structure would shift dramatically from the hands of western elites to the nations with the most resources. America’s corporate and financial giants will never allow that to happen, not as long as there’s one missile left in an American silo.

If Cindy Sheehan wants to know “what the noble cause her son Casey died for in Iraq”; this is it; to maintain the current economic system. Ultimately, this is why Iran will be bombarded in a flagrant display of unprovoked aggression.

Enter Israel: “Time is running out”

Last week three members of the Israeli Knesset issued a terse warning that an attack on Iran may be imminent. Arieh Eldad, a member of the right-wing National Union Party said ominously, “Iran will not be deterred by anything but force.”

Yoseph Lapid, head of the Shinui Party echoed Eldad’s sentiments saying, “We feel we are obliged to warn our friends that Israel should not be pushed into a situation where we see no other solution but to act unilaterally.”

The appearance of three Israeli politicians dispatched to Washington to reiterate the same message can only mean trouble. We should presume that the details of an upcoming attack are currently being ironed-out and that hostilities will probably take place in the very near future.

It is strangely ironic that Israel would have the audacity to send politicians to Washington in the very same week that a top Pentagon analyst has confessed to handing over highly classified intelligence to members of the pro-Israeli lobbying group AIPAC. It’s always difficult to defend the “special friendship” when one of the friends is stealing top secret information from the other.

The issue of Israel’s disloyalty, of course, won’t disrupt the plans for the attack on Iran. That strategy was worked out long ago in documents like the Project for the New American Century and represents the mutual interests of the Israeli leadership and the White House globalists. Their aims are to consolidate control over diminishing resources and to establish a dominating military presence over the fragmented and greatly weakened Islamic states.

The upcoming attack is predicated on the belief that Iran will not strike back, but that is far from certain. What is certain, however, is that stable supplies of crude, major cities in Israel, and 140,000 American servicemen and women will be deliberately put in harms-way to achieve the elusive objectives of political fantasists and radicals. It is a reckless roll of the dice that moves the world ever-closer towards a global catastrophe.
Mike lives in Washington State with his charming wife Joan and two spoiled and overfed dogs, Cocoa and Pat-Fergie.

Something tells me that we haven’t seen anything yet, even after what has been happening lately. Not only does seismic activity cause earthquakes but also volcanic activity as well. Not to sound paranoid but, is it just me or do you also feel that the next shoe is about to drop in the form of the next BIG earthquake, volcano, tsunami, pandemic, hurricane, terror attack? Have I missed anything?

Massive Antipode Earthquakes in Asia and Americas Intensify Earth Core Instability as US Northwest Area Earthquakes Number in the Thousands and ‘South Atlantic Anomaly’ Shows Signs of Growing
By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers
Russian Scientists are reporting today that Earth Core instabilities are increasing, and are evidenced by the massive Antipode earthquake events in Peru and Asia these past days.
Of the events in Asia we can read as reported by the United States Bloomberg News Service in their article titled "Pakistan, India Are Hit by 7.6 Magnitude Earthquake" and which says, "Pakistan and India were shaken by a magnitude 7.6 earthquake, one of the biggest to strike the region. Government officials in both countries said they fear widespread death and destruction."
This event followed by 11 days the massive event that occurred in the South American country of Peru, and as we can read as reported by the Associated Press News Service in their article titled "Powerful earthquake rocks northern Peru" and which says, "A powerful earthquake in northern Peru killed at least one person, destroyed about 100 homes and disrupted electricity and telephone service in much of the region, the civil defense chief said Monday. The 7.5-magnitude earthquake was felt throughout Peru's northern coast and as far away as Bogota, Colombia, more than 700 miles to the north, and broke windows in towns in Ecuador."
To the significance of Asia and the Americas being the most important areas of the earth in monitoring core instabilities we had previously reported on in our March 28th report titled “Earth’s Core ‘Mysteriously’ Shifts Causing near Simultaneous Antipodal Earthquakes in Central America, South America and Indonesia" and wherein we had stated:
“Russian scientists are reporting this evening that the Earth’s core has experienced a mysterious ‘shifting’, and for as yet unexplained reasons, but has caused near simultaneous earthquakes in both the countries of Indonesia and its antipodal counterparts of Panama, Venezuela and Nicaragua.
Of the Central and South American events we are not knowledgeable yet as communications with these areas have apparently been disrupted.
Of the Indonesian event we can read as reported by the British News Service Times Online in their article titled "Tsunami fears over new Indonesia earthquake", and which says, "A "widely destructive tsunami" could be unleashed by the huge earthquake that has struck off the coast of Indonesia, authorities said today. The US Geological Survey (USGS) said that the earthquake, measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale, struck at 1609 GMT off the coast of Sumatra and was an aftershock of the December 26 quake."
Much scientific speculation has been occurring since the Great Tsunami Event of 2004, and in which as reported by the United States Space Agency NASA, "NASA scientists using data from the Indonesian earthquake calculated it affected Earth's rotation, decreased the length of day, slightly changed the planet's shape, and shifted the North Pole by centimeters. The earthquake that created the huge tsunami also changed the Earth's rotation."
Towards the greater parts of this speculation we can see as written by the American scientist Dr. Walter Wishchey, who is the Director of the Science Museum of Virginia, and who in this article titled "Reversal of magnetic field under way?", says, "There are signs that reversal might be under way now the Earth's magnetic field is about 10 percent weaker than when first measured in the 1800s. In the April issue of Scientific American, Glatzmaier describes two recent satellite missions to study the Earth's magnetic field. The results show the field is quite uneven. This patchiness in the field strength may account in part for inherent instability."
Today’s massive earthquake event in Asia, once again, mirrored those events of this past March with the precursor event taking place in the Central American country of El Salvador, and as we can read as reported by Chinas Xinhua News Service in their article titled "Strong earthquake jolts El Salvador" and which says, "An earthquake measuring 6.2 on the Richter Scale rocked El Salvador on Friday at local time 11:42AM (1742 GMT), according to an official source from the Central American country."
Russian Scientists further state in their reports that as these internal core instabilities increase, the weaker geological areas of the earth remain at the greatest danger, one of which is the Northwestern Regions of North America, and where increasing concerns are being raised due to a continuing series of earthquakes, numbering in the thousands per day, are being reported in the Idaho Region, and as we can read as reported by the KTVB News Service in their article titled “Recent earthquake activity raises concerns about Cascade Dam" and which says:
"After weeks of shaking, folks in Cascade say they're getting sick of feeling the earth move under their feet. There may be a greater concern than trinkets falling off shelves. Some Cascade residents say the thing they're most worried about is a dam built in 1948 and whether the structure can withstand shock after shock. But even though thousands of small earthquakes are still being recorded every day, officials who inspect the dam say they're not worried."
These reports also state that these events by themselves are but ‘parts’ of a much larger, and catastrophic, ‘main event’ that the entire world is heading towards.
Not being understood by the Western peoples are the significances relating to the massive number, and increasing power, of the latest series of Super Storms ravaging our planet and their causing of earthquakes in the areas they most effect, and as we had previously reported on in our July 5th report titled “Massive Raising of Atlantic Ocean Bed Triggers Current Changes As North American Plate Pressures Build To ‘Unprecedented Levels’ Scientists Report" and wherein we had stated:
“But perhaps most ominous of all of these events has been the American Scientists recent confirming Russian research that details the effects of weather upon fault zones like New Madrid, and as we can read as reported by the New Scientist News Service in their report titled "Earth trembles as big winds move in" and which says;
"HURRICANES can trigger swarms of weak earthquakes and even set the Earth vibrating, according to the first study of such effects.When Hurricane Charley slammed into Florida in August 2004, physicist Randall Peters of Mercer University in Macon, Georgia, had a seismometer ready to monitor any vibrations in the Earth's crust. He did so for over 36 hours as Charley travelled briefly over Florida, then slid back out into the Atlantic.
As the hurricane reached land, the seismometer recorded a series of "micro-tremors" from the Earth's crust. This happened again as the storm moved back out to sea. Then, as Charley grazed the continental shelf on its way out, it caused a sharp seismic spike. "I suspect the storm triggered a subterranean landslide," says Peters.
More surprisingly, the storm also caused the Earth to vibrate. The planet's surface in the vicinity of the hurricane started moving up and down at several frequencies ranging from 0.9 to 3 millihertz. Such low-frequency vibrations have been detected following large earthquakes, but this is the first time a storm has been found to be the cause."
Further evidence to support this research has been evidenced in these past weeks when the Regions of Central America and Taiwan were struck by the twin calamities of Massive Storms followed by Earthquakes, and as we can read:
As reported by the Washington Post News Service in their article titled "Flooded Central America Hit by Quake" and which says, "A moderate earthquake rocked Central America on Friday, causing the collapse of a rain-damaged highway bridge in Guatemala and sending thousands of frightened Salvadoran residents into the streets. The earthquake struck before residents had even begun to recover from the storms, which included Hurricane Stan's landfall Tuesday in Mexico's Gulf Coast state of Veracruz before it weakened into a tropical depression."
As reported by South Africa’s Mail and Guardian News Service in their article titled "Quake hits Taiwan as typhoon arrives" and which says, "A strong earthquake measuring 5,4 on the Richter scale rocked eastern Taiwan late on Saturday as the island braced for the impact of powerful Typhoon Longwang."
But to all of these events, the one causing the greatest concerns to Russian Scientists is the evidence that the mysterious ‘South American Anomaly’ is growing in size and appears to be ‘shifting’ towards the north. The United States MIT University states about this mysterious anomaly:
"Earth is surrounded by a close-to-spherical magnetic field, the magnetosphere. According to what we know today, it is being generated by dynamo action in the Earth's interior where conducting liquid metals are kept in motion by the forces of convection (heat exchange), coriolis, and gravitation, and just as the charged windings in the coil of a dynamo generate a magnetic field when moved, these masses create the Earth's magnetic field. Without it, our compasses wouldn't work, there would be no northern lights (auroras), and it protects us from space radiation by deflecting high energy particles from deep space or by capturing them in the so-called Van Allen Belts. Of these, discovered by the first US satellite, Explorer 1, in 1958, there are two, one closer, the other farther away, and both surround the Earth like a doughnut.
Unfortunately, at a certain location over the South Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Brazil, the shielding effect of the magnetosphere is not quite spherical but shows a "pothole", a dip, which scientists explain as a result of the eccentric displacement of the center of the magnetic field from the geographical center of the Earth (by 280 miles) as well as the displacement between the magnetic and geographic poles of Earth. For orbits tilted (inclined) between 35 and 60 degrees against Earth's equator and having altitudes of a few hundred miles, this oddity, called the South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) becomes important, because spacecraft in those orbits periodically pass through that zone of reduced natural shielding and thus spend a few minutes during each passage exposed to higher particle flux than outside it. It requires higher shielding for the crew, particularly during spacewalks (EVAs), and is also of concern in the design of photovoltaic cells which are degraded faster by higher particle fluxes."
These disturbing changes to the South American Anomaly are speculated by Russian Scientists to have been caused by last months massive solar flares, and as we can read as reported by the British Scotsman News Service in their September 14th article titled "Solar flares hit radio and satellite services" and which says:
"Turmoil on the surface of the Sun is threatening the Earth with radio blackouts, grid overloads and satellite disruptions. At the centre of the storm is a giant sunspot which is blasting out solar flares charged with powerful X-rays. Energetic particles are pouring out, posing a risk to sensitive communication systems. Sunspot 798, which at its peak has been five times larger than the Earth, has produced seven huge X-class flares since 7 September. A solar flare is a massive explosion on the Sun that can release as much energy as a billion megatons of TNT. One on Wednesday last week was rated X-17 on a scale which measures the intensity of flares, making it the fourth biggest on record."
To the Western people being able to fully comprehend the totality, and interconnectedness, of this earth, and the solar system we are a part of, their Darwinian mindsets will not allow them; it is as if they believe that by removing even the smallest part of their body the rest would not be affected. To the danger of their not comprehending these events lies in their failing to prepare for the greater cataclysmic events soon to overtake them.

How often do you see a headline like this? The reports regarding this avian flu have gone from a whisper to a shout on the bullhorn in the past few months. If this mutates to spread from human to human, we have a global crisis on our hands. I’m not sure if this will be full blown this year but I’m almost certain that this will eventually happen at some point.

America 'faces worst disaster in its history'

A PLAN drawn up by the Bush Administration to combat a pandemic bird flu outbreak reveals that America is grossly unprepared to deal with what would likely be the worst disaster in US history.
The 381-page draft plan, leaked by health officials who claim that it contains fundamental failures, predicts that a full-scale outbreak could kill as many as 1.9 million Americans and put 8.5 million in hospital at a cost of more than $450 billion (£256 billion).

Hospitals would quickly become overwhelmed, riots would break out at vaccine clinics, civil unrest would sweep the country, and power and food would be in short supply, according to the plan, which has been years in the making. It calls for quarantine and travel restrictions but concedes that those measures “are unlikely to delay introduction of pandemic disease into the US by more than a month or two”.
A large outbreak in Asia, because of modern travel patterns, would be likely to reach the US within “a few months or even weeks”. The plan, which was passed to The New York Times, calls for the ability to manufacture 600 million vaccine doses within six months, more than ten times the country’s current capacity.
The document, called the Pandemic Influenza Strategic Plan, also calls for a national stockpile of 133 courses of flu treatment. The Bush Administration has purchased only 4.3 million courses at present.
On Friday, President Bush met officials from the country’s top six vaccine producers at the White House to urge them to step up production and to discuss ways to increase their production capacity.
Health officials claim that the plan fails to place a central figure in charge of co-ordinating a national response to a bird flu outbreak. After the Bush Administration’s disastrous initial response to Hurricane Katrina, and Mr Bush’s subsequent admission that a lack of clear and unified central leadership exacerbated the disaster, the officials told The New York Times: “We don’t want to have a FEMA-like [Federal Emergency Management Agency] response, where it’s not clear who’s running what.”
The officials conceded, however, that the plan was a “major milestone”.
One of the most controversial parts of the plan addresses who should be given the vaccines first. The military and National Guard are not mentioned.

Look here, even Hugo Chavez’s ole buddy has something profound to say about all of this. I have one thing to say about his quote too. “DUUUUUHH, No shit…. Did you know that false prophets point to a 2nd coming too?” The crap coming out of Pat’s mouth is more of a sign of the end than the disasters in my opinion. Thanks Pat. You’ve made a believer out of me.

Robertson: Disasters point to 2nd Coming
Evangelist observes quakes, hurricanes 'starting to hit with amazing regularity'
World Net Daily | 10th Oct 2005

This weekend's catastrophic earthquake in South Asia in the wake of recent U.S. hurricanes and December's tsunami is catching the eye of televangelist Pat Robertson, who says we "might be" in the End Times described in the Bible.
"These things are starting to hit with amazing regularity," Robertson said on CNN's "Late Edition."
Robertson, a former GOP presidential candidate and host of the "700 Club" daily Christian TV show, noted, "If you read back in the Bible, the letter of the apostle Paul to the church of Thessalonia, he said that in the latter days before the end of the age that the Earth would be caught up in what he called the birth pangs of a new order. And for anybody who knows what it's like to have a wife going into labor, you know how these labor pains begin to hit. I don't have any special word that says this is that, but it could be suspiciously like that."
"What was called the blessed hope of the Bible is that one day Jesus Christ would come back again, start a whole new era, that this world order that we know would change into something that would be wonderful that we'd call the millennium," he continued. "And before that good time comes there will be some difficult days and there will be likened to what a woman goes through in labor just before she brings forth a child."
When asked if the world was approaching that moment, Robertson said, "It's possible. I don't have any special revelation to say it is but the Bible does indicate such a time will happen in the end of time. And could this be it? It might be."
Hurricane Katrina left more than 1,200 people dead in the Gulf Coast region of the U.S., while the rising death toll from this weekend's earthquake in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India is in the 20,000 to 30,000 range thus far.
On Dec. 26, an estimated 275,000 people lost their lives from a tsunami sparked by an undersea earthquake in the Indian Ocean.
Some New Testament verses often cited by Christians regarding signs of the end of this present age before the return of Jesus to Earth include:

"For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows." (Matthew 24:7-8)
"And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;" (Luke 21:25).
Robertson isn't the only one raising the End Times issue, as author and WorldNetDaily columnist Hal Lindsey has weighed in.
"It seems clear that the prophetic times I have been expecting for decades have finally arrived. And even worse, it appears that the judgment of America has begun," Lindsey said on the Sept. 9 broadcast of the "International Intelligence Briefing" on the Trinity Broadcasting Network. "I warn continually that the last days lineup of world powers does not include anything resembling the United States of America. Instead, a revived Roman Empire in Europe is to rule the West, and then the world. "
As WND reported last month, Robertson suggested the assassination of Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez.
"We have the ability to take him out, and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability," he said, though he later backed away from the suggestion of assassination, stating he was taken out of context.
Robertson revisited his concerns about Chavez today, telling CNN, "The truth is, this man is setting up a Marxist-type dictatorship in Venezuela, he's trying to spread Marxism throughout South America, he's negotiating with the Iranians to get nuclear material and he also sent 1.2 million dollars in cash to Osama bin Laden right after 9-11."
"I've written him. I apologized and I said I will be praying for him, but one day we will be staring at nuclear weapons and it won't be [Hurricane] Katrina facing New Orleans, it's going to be a Venezuelan nuke," Robertson said.
When asked where he got the information about cash going from Chavez to bin Laden, Robertson said it was from "sources," though WND has previously reported on the connection.
"That's what I was told," Robertson said. "And I know he sent a warm, congratulatory letter to Carlos the Jackal. He's a friend of Moammar Gadhafi. He's made common cause with these people who are considered terrorists."
