On October 5, 2017, President Trump met with his senior military staff to discuss ISIS, Iran, Afghanistan and North Korea. Following this meeting a dinner was held with his military staff and their spouses during which they also discussed the above. There was a group photo op which the President referred to as "the calm before the storm." When asked, he would not explain what he meant by the coming storm, but responded, "You'll find out."

"We are in a time of great deception and must understand how to interpret current events according to Scripture and how Bible prophecy is being fulfilled.  Failure to properly interpret end-time events according to God's Word has made the Church vulnerable to deception and large numbers of Christians are being exploited by deceivers to fulfill their anti-Christian agenda."  -- Watch-unto-prayer.org




1)  Nikki Haley's Sudden Exit Leaves DC on Edge


United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley unexpectedly resigned Tuesday— leaving both foreign diplomats and members of the Trump administration surprised by the sudden, mysterious move.

Neither congressional Republicans nor Secretary of State Mike Pompeo nor some key US allies got advance word from Haley or the White House of the resignation, effective at the end of the year.

President Trump and Haley offered no specific reasons for the surprise move as they sat together during a White House meeting Tuesday, where they lavished praise on each other and Haley insisted she has no 2020 presidential ambitions...

 2)  Hillary Clinton's Security Clearance Withdrawn at Her Request

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's security clearance was withdrawn by the State Department at her request, according to a letter from the agency to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

The letter, dated Sept. 21 and published Friday by the Republican chair of the committee, Sen. Chuck Grassley, does not detail why Clinton made the request, except that she did so on Aug. 30. An aide to Clinton did not respond to a request for comment.

3) Lawrence Solomon: The Real Reason for Trump's Steel Tariffs: He's Preparing for War



President Trump’s decision to apply steep tariffs to steel imports on grounds of national security met with a loud chorus of protests at home and abroad, by many trying to divine what could ...


"Trump is old enough to know that during the Korean War, president Harry Truman seized the U.S. steel industry to maintain production for America’s then-vulnerable wartime economy. During the Second World War, when the U.S. dominated the world’s steel production, rationing was nevertheless needed — the public was even exhorted to donate their automobile bumpers to the war effort as scrap steel."



4) Trump Wants Chinese Parts Out of American Weapons




The White House will call for targeted investments in domestic manufacturing in an industrial-base report to be unveiled Friday. The Pentagon intends to invest in domestic manufacturing to reduce ...


"The only reason the Pentagon would want to rewrite their supply chains and become less reliant on the rest of the world is that they see a war on the horizon. War tends to disrupt global trade, the US government is now preparing for conflict by securing its supply chains."  -- DefenceOne



5)  The White House is Marching Toward War With Iran


"There is a very real possibility that Donald Trump will start a new war in the Middle East. If that’s not his intention, then his administration is doing a damn good  job of faking it."  -- Joe Cirincione



In July, in a late-night tweet from the White House, President Trump threatened Iran, in all caps, with “CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED.” Since that rant, Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton and his Secretary of State Mike Pompeo seem to be taking pages from the Iraq War playbook. They are cherry-picking intelligence and inflating threats. They’re making specious connections between Iran and terrorists, including al-Qaeda and the Islamic State.  And they’re ratcheting up their rhetoric." -- Defence One

This, says Cirincione, became further evident during Trump's speech before the UN General Assembly last week.

Trump himself used his speech before the United Nations on September 25 to, as Mitchell Plitnick noted on this site, “build the case for aggression against Iran and even to add more obstacles to a peaceful resolution of tensions between the United States and the Islamic Republic.” These tensions are about to get worse. In early November, the administration will hit countries doing business with Iran with a new round of harsh sanctions. The likelihood that this pressure will explode into military conflict is rising dramatically.


6 Canadian Army Mounts Major Recruitment Drive


The Canadian Army is looking to add more than 1,000 new recruits to its reserves over the next few years, largely by slashing the amount of time it takes to join.


It’s a potential boon for one of Alberta’s major reserve forces — 41 Canadian Brigade Group — which held an open house in Edmonton on Saturday in a bid to bring on more members.



“It seems like every trade is hiring, and it seems like everyone’s keen for recruits.”



The Devil's anvil: B61-12


Comment:  Production run of 400 planned for this nuke (new) upgrade.  If a nuke is to be used in future conflict(s), the B61-12 is mostly likely candidate for reasons given below.  



America's New, More 'Usable', Nuclear Bomb

First built in 1963, the B61 has been called "the bread and butter" of the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The bomb's newest
incarnation, B61-12, will be a variable-yield, precision-guided version of one of the most numerous bombs in the US arsenal.
"Excluding submarine-based missiles, the B61 is the only US nuclear weapon deployed outside of the United States today. The
United States has around 180 B61s at six bases in five NATO countries - Belgium, Germany, Italy, Holland and Turkey. These
nuclear weapons are part of what many call the 'glue' that holds NATO together.

General Confirms Enhanced Targeting Capabilities of B61-12 Nuclear Bomb

"The former U.S. Air Force Chief of Staff, General Norton Schwartz, confirmed last week that the B61-12 nuclear bomb planned
by the Obama administration will have improved military capabilities to attack targets with greater accuracy and less
radioactive fallout. The confirmation is important because the 2010 Nuclear Posture Review (NPR) pledged that nuclear
warhead 'Life Extension Programs' will not support new military missions or provide for new military capabilities. In
addition to violating the NPR pledge, enhancing the nuclear capability contradicts U.S. and NATO goals of reducing the role
of nuclear weapons and could undermine efforts to persuade Russia to reduce its non-strategic nuclear weapons posture.

<-- possible B61-12 target(s)

Improved B61 accuracy "Increasing the accuracy broadens the type of targets that the B61 can be used to attack. The effect
is most profound against underground targets that require ground burst and cratering to be damaged by the shock wave.
"General Schwartz's confirmation came during a conference organized by the Stimson Center in response to a question from
Steven Young whether the relatively low yield and increased accuracy of the B61-12 in terms of targeting planning would
change the way the military thinks about how to use the weapon. General Schwartz's answer was both clear and blunt:
'Without a doubt. Improved accuracy and lower yield is a desired military capability. Without question.' When asked whether
that would result in a different target set or just make the existing weapon better, General Schwartz said: 'It would have
both effects.'


<-- B61-12 during drop test from B2

"With the increased accuracy of the B61-12 the strike planners will be able to select a lower yield and still achieve the
same (or even better) damage to the underground target. Using lower yields will significantly reduce collateral damage by
reducing the radioactive fallout that civilians would be exposed to after an attack. The difference in fallout from a
360-kiloton B61-7 surface burst compared with a B61-12 using a 10-kiloton selective yield option is significant.

"General Schwartz said that the B61 tail kit 'has benefits from an employment standpoint that many consider stabilizing'.
I later asked him what he meant by that and his reply was that critics (myself included) claim that the increased accuracy
and lower yield options could make the B61-12 more attractive to use because of reduced collateral damage and radioactive
fallout. But he said he believed that the opposite would be the case; that the enhanced capabilities would enhance deterrence
and make use less likely because adversaries would be more convinced that the United States is willing to use nuclear weapons if necessary."





But that's not all, more to come.

Trump Says Mattis 'Could be leaving as US Defense Chief
By Jim MANNION/Washington (AFP) Oct 14, 2018


Washington (AFP) Oct 14, 2018 - US President Donald Trump said in an interview airing Sunday that Defense Secretary Jim Mattis could be leaving, referring to him as sort of a Democrat.

"The generals who once dominated security policy increasingly have appeared to be on the outs with Trump."

So "Mad Dog" Mattis is following Nikki Haley, Hillary Clinton and other ranking (former) generals out the door.   

Other generals on the outs:  Lt General HR McMaster (former NS Advisor),  John Kelly, (retired four-star general)

The US military has over the course of the last 25 years, intervened in many theaters (Serbia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Syria, Libya, etc.) so what is so unusual that a slew of high ranking generals exiting?  

The plan is to "nuke" Iran using the B61-12 mini-nuke bomb:  

In effect pulling the nuclear genie out of the bottle & all the possible consequences (bad).   When Donald Trump says repeatedly he's going to "Make America Great Again": 

Hitler Slogan - "Make Germany Great Again"

<---- Germany after WW2

<--- Trump's slogan

America (below)?
