Commentary & Analysis

L. A. Marzulli

RFK assassination witness tells CNN: There was a second shooter

“What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right,” Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN. “The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups.”

RFK assassination witness tells CNN: There was a second shooter – CNN

RFK was gunned down by another “lone-gunman” – the first being Lee Harvey Oswald –  in Los Angeles, over 40 years ago.  The official version of the story is that a radical Palestinian, Sirhan Sirhan, who disliked Kennedy because of his support of Israel, did the shooting.  His gun held 8 bullets and now after decades a witness, Nina Rhodes-Hughes, who was there that fateful night, claims she heard at least 12 shoots.  She was facing Sirhan when Senator Kennedy was gunned down.  She told her story to the FBI and was never called as a witness at Sirhan’s trial.  This is the way the game is played.  How can this be possible?  How can this crucial witness be somehow ignored and brushed aside?  The answer is simple, in my opinion she wasn’t called because her version of the events would have cast doubt on the lone-gunman theory and thus would have opened the possibility of a conspiracy.  So why after 44 years does this information surface and why was it tucked  away from the attention of the public, in the first place?

Unfortunately most Americans will shrug it off and focus their attention on bigger things like American Idol or the whereabouts of Kim Kardashian.   The press failed in their job as they did not report this woman’s story.  The FBI may have deliberately skewed the Rhodes-Hughes’ story, at least this is what she claims, as when reading what she allegedly said, in regard to the assassination in the official version set forth by the FBI, denies that she said it.

In closing todays post:  When I read this story yesterday, I was deeply troubled by it.  If there was a conspiracy in the RFK assassination, then who was behind it?  Sirhan Sirhan may have been a MK Ultra, mind control victim, as he maintains that he has no recollection of the shooting.  Then there’s the LAPD removal of key evidence in the shooting that somehow was “accidentally” destroyed.  Kind of like JFK’s brain missing.  Cover-up: RFK

We are living in a society where four-year olds are searched and patted down at airports, where over 100,000 of our service men and women are on some kind of drugs to help them cope with fighting a war that has dragged on for 11 years, and counting.   Where a person deemed to be a terrorist can be arrested and held indefinitely without charges being brought.  Where the public is fed bread and circus and distracted with a new “media-clown” on a weekly basis.  What is the solution?  It certainly is not one that man can fix.  The answer is a supernatural one and it is the return of the King.   When He comes back with the armies of heaven those who were responsible will not be able to hide any more.  They will not be able to stand in their lie.   He will set the record straight.  He will bring justice, peace and goodness back to this world.  This is our hope.  This is what keeps me going, the promise of His coming!  In the meantime, this is the way the game is played….

Fukishima Disaster Far From Over!

Robert Alvarez: The Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Is Far From Over

Spent reactor fuel, containing roughly 85 times more long-lived radioactivity than released at Chernobyl, still sits in pools vulnerable to earthquakes.

Our News Cycle is about 12 hours long and even that is being pushed back to quicker turn around time as events around the world are reported at the speed of LIVE!   Most of us forget about the 9.0 earthquake in Haiti:  “Hey, I gave money to the Clinton/Bush Haiti relief fund!”  That’s great and I did too, but has the plight of the victims improved in that country?  Did the money actually get into the hands of the people who needed it?  Is most of the funds still tied up in red tape, lingering in Washington?

How about the flooding in the Mid-west last year, or Katrina, or the Gulf Oil Spill?  When Richard Shaw and I visited New Orleans, recently, we found that most of the area had been rebuilt, with the exception of areas in the 9th Ward.   The oil spill however, is still affecting the fishing industry and we got a great interview, that we will use in Watchers 4, about this.  When was the last time you heard anything about that?

Why is it that USA Today’s lead story is about Zimmerman raising 200K for legal defense, followed by the latest contestant who was sent packing on American Idol.  Bread and circus anyone?

The Japanese government obfuscated critical information about the disaster of the Fukishima nuclear plant.  They told the world that the reactors were not compromised and that everything was hunky-doorey.  CNN: “They lied to us” Fukushima Radiation Release Comparable To Chernobyl, 100% Meltdown In 3 Reactors

Not so fast!  Here we are months later and nothing has been done to contain the contaminated pools of water.  What  happens when the unthinkable happens and the area is compromised?  Fukishima is a ticking time bomb, as Michio Kaku, explains in the video linked to above.  The people of Japan deserve better from their government and the nations of the world should recognize that Fukishima poses a threat to the oceans and thus the food chain that could affect all of us.

In closing today’s post:  Fukishima, Haiti, 9.0 earthquakes, the ring of fire, bird and fish deaths, flooding, drought, volcanic activity, strange sounds heard world-wide, famines, and wars and rumors of wars.  Are these the signs of the end times?  Is it really business as usual?  How long can we sustain our way of life before it begins to collapse under the weight of fiscal irresponsibility combined with what in my opinion are unmitigated “natural” disasters?   We watch for the signs because Jesus admonishes us to do so.  We keep an eye on developments to warn others of what may be coming, and in the midst of this proclaim that He is coming again soon.

BURTON BEYOND       

I can remember when I was just a lad, somewhere around ten years old, being in love with new experiences and ideas.  The springboard for my interests as they are today came in the form of one Dr. George Knight, professor of New Testament at Hardin-Simmons University, and an accomplished field archaeologist.  It just so happened that his brother-in-law, Reverend Wayne Keller, was the pastor at my church.  Our congregation had the great fortune of Dr. Knight’s leadership in a number of seasonal bible studies throughout the year.  To my great delight, he always added tales of his work on archaeological sites in the Near East.  That’s really all it took for me, because I drank it all in, and it became part of me.  I have ever since been an explorer: a direct result of the marriage of faith in Jesus Christ and academic enthusiasm.
I’m 34 years old, and I am married to the greatest woman in the world, my bonny Kelly. I have a BA in History from Hardin-Simmons University. I also have an MA in anthropology from Texas Tech University.  This year I completed my PhD in history at Texas Tech University, focusing my studies on Early Christianity and Greco-Roman religions.  I also study topics such as the survival of mythology, sacred geography, folk religion, and contemporary alternative religious movements.

I grew up in a small town called Merkel, Texas.  I went to school there, learned from such wonderful teachers as Chuck Roach, Lisa Amerine, Alvin O’Dell, and Lisa Walker.  Merkel also afforded me the opportunity to learn how to play the guitar, and yes, be in a rock band, Black Pearl.  The little hamlet of Merkel was a wonderful place to grow up.  The present population is about 2500. Merkel  has an intersting history, full of cultural vibrance, and at one point in time, it even had a college. So if you ever get the chance, visit Merkel.

In my short 34 years I’ve had some interesting adventures. While playing in the marching band at Cisco Junior College, I visited Hawaii. I’ve also done archaeology on both sides of the globe: Texas and Israel. To top it all off, I’ve also been to Jordan, Denmark, and Mexico, and hope to add Ireland, Greece, Egypt, Thailand, Australia, Belize, and Vietnam to that list soon.

A woman mountain biking; Actual size=180 pixels wide

Currently, I am an instructor with Amarillo College, teaching classes in History, Anthropology, and the Humanities.  My last job was working as a historian for the Gowen Research Foundation in Lubbock, Texas.  Work at the office has led to adventure in the field, as I am currently the director of an archaeological survey.  This project is due to information being brought to my attention at work.  I love my work, as it is always providing both challenge and great interest for me.

Teaching and research are very important to me.  In fact, I love teaching, and I cherish my students.  I believe firmly in classical education, and make a strong effort to institute the philosophy of classical education in public education curriculum, as well as in the college classes I teach.

I love a good adventure.  I was born for it.  Fortunately the fields I find myself working in most often afford such opportunity.  I believe in living life to the utmost, and taking advantage of all the chances one has to make life interesting, fulfilling, productive, rewarding, and exciting.

Commentary & Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

I decided to post this chapter from The Cosmic Chess Match to further discuss the 9th of Av.  In no way am I date setting or promulgating the view that something will happen on this date.  I am however illustrating that this date has historically been one of calamity from the Jewish people and therefore we should keep an eye on it.   Hope that clears things up!  L.A.

If you would like to avail yourself of THe Cosmic Chess Match go to WWW.lamarzulli.net

Chapter 20: The Ninth of AV!

This chapter is unique because it spans thousands of years in its scope. What we will learn is that the Fallen One has attempted to liquidate, kill off, exterminate, terminate, and bring to an end the race of people known as the Jews.  He has done this on more than one occasion and that is the subject of this chapter.

He has sought the destruction of the Jewish people throughout history and has even attempted it in modern times, as we will soon discover.  He has been relentless in these attempts because he believes that if he can wipe the Jews out, he will win. How?  Because if the Jews don’t exist as a people, a nation, and a tribe, then prophecy will not be fulfilled; if prophecy that the Most High God has stated will happen for whatever reason does not, then the Fallen One has proved the Most High God to be a liar and thus he would win the match, or perhaps I should say rematch because the match was decided on Calvary two thousand years ago: the victor being the Most High God.  Of course this is NOT going to happen, but the Fallen One is so full of hate and, while he is an evil genius, his hubris has clouded his judgment and so he still believes that he can win the rematch, even though there is no rematch being played!

There are those who wonder about the hatred toward the Jews.  We see it today, as we hear from Mahmoud Ahmedinejhad, who continually spreads his vitriolic comments toward Israel on almost a weekly basis.  I have covered this in Politics, Prophecy & the Supernatural, so I will not go into it here, but surely we can agree that anti-Semitism is on the rise.  Here are a handful of quotes that the president of Iran has hurled toward Israel:

“Israel is a dry withered tree, soon to be plucked up by its roots and thrown into the sea.”[1]

“Israel is a cancer soon to be irradiated.”[2]

“Israel should be wiped off the map.”[3]

The point I’m making is that unless we understand that the Fallen One spawns these supernatural forces and, I believe, fans the flames of this hatred, we will never understand it.

In short, we are watching in real-time the end game of the Fallen One being played out on the world stage.  He is trying to drag as many people as he can with him to his final destination, that of the lake of fire.  However, in the meantime, and I believe it is in the near future, he will try once again to annihilate the Jews.

The Supernatural hatred of the Jews

Why the deep hatred of the Jewish people?  Why is anti-Semitism raising its ugly head in the modern era, in the 21st century?  According to the latest statistics, anti-Semitism is on the rise.[4]

It just doesn’t make sense, does it?  The root of the hatred, in my opinion, against the Jewish people is that the Jews are the Most High God’s chosen people, and it is because of this that the Fallen One hates them with a vengeance and wants to wipe them off the face of the earth!

There are some Christians who say that the Jews lost this privilege—that of being the chosen people—when they rejected their Messiah.  This is called replacement theology and, in my opinion, it is a heretical teaching.

In short, replacement theology says that the church is now Israel and all the promises that the Most High God gave to Israel now belong to the church. Unfortunately, this is not stated anywhere  in the Guidebook to the Supernatural.  It is an invention of men and women to once again diminish the Jews and Israel.  (I wonder what fallen angel whispered this falsehood and started the rumor in the first place.)  In my opinion, if one takes this position, then one will never, and I mean never, have an understanding of prophecy and how the cosmic chess match is being played out.  Most of the prophecy that we have seen in our lifetime is directly related to Israel:

The gathering of the Jews from the four corners of the world[5]

The control of Jerusalem[6]

The desert blooming[7]

The language of Hebrew restored[8]

These are a few of the prophecies that have come to pass.  There are others that are yet unfulfilled, but I believe that we are in the days when we will see them happen as the news media flashes the headlines on TV sets all over the globe.

Tisha B’Av – the Ninth of Av

This day, the ninth of Av, has been a day of calamity for the Jewish people.  It would appear that this is no coincidence and, as we shall see, the fingerprints of the Fallen One are all over what has transpired on this day.  Here is a brief overview, taken from the Jewish Virtual Library, of what happened:[9]

Tisha B’Av, the Fast of the Ninth of Av, is a day of mourning to commemorate the many tragedies that have befallen the Jewish people, many of which coincidentally have occurred on the ninth of Av.

Tisha B’Av means “the ninth (day) of Av.” It usually occurs during August.

Tisha B’Av primarily commemorates the destruction of the first and second Temples, both of which were destroyed on the ninth of Av (the first by the Babylonians in 586 B.C.E.; the second by the Romans in 70 C.E.).

Although this holiday is primarily meant to commemorate the destruction of the Temple, it is appropriate to consider on this day the many other tragedies of the Jewish people, many of which occurred on this day, most notably the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492.

Tisha B’Av is the culmination of a three-week period of increasing mourning, beginning with the fast of the 17th of Tammuz, which commemorates the first breach in the walls of Jerusalem, before the First Temple was destroyed. During this three-week period, weddings and other parties are not permitted, and people refrain from cutting their hair. From the first to the ninth of Av, it is customary to refrain from eating meat or drinking wine (except on the Sabbath) and from wearing new clothing.

The restrictions on Tisha B’Av are similar to those on Yom Kippur: to refrain from eating and drinking (even water); washing, bathing, shaving or wearing cosmetics; wearing leather shoes; and engaging in sexual relations. Work in the ordinary sense of the word is also restricted. People who are ill need not fast on this day. Many of the traditional mourning practices are observed: people refrain from smiles, laughter and idle conversation, and sit on low stools.

In synagogue, the book of Lamentations is read and mourning prayers are recited. The ark (cabinet where the Torah is kept) is draped in black.

Here is a list of the calamities that befell the Jewish people on the ninth of Av.[10] These dates are taken from the Mishnah.  I will comment after each one and will use a different font to do so.

The twelve spies Moses sent to observe the land of Canaan returned from their mission.  Only two of the spies, Joshua and Caleb, brought a positive report, while the others spoke disparagingly about the land.  The majority report caused the Children of Israel to cry, panic and despair of ever entering the “Promised Land.”   For this, they were punished.  God said that their generation would not enter the land.  Because of the Israelites’ lack of faith, God decreed that for all generations this date would become one of crying and misfortune for their descendants, the Jewish people.  (See Numbers Ch. 13–14.)

We discussed some of this earlier.  What is being mentioned here is the countermove of the Fallen One?  In short, he has been busy putting Nephilim (the offspring of fallen angels and women) in the area that the Most High God has designated as “the Promised Land.”  As I mentioned before, this is a major macro move because it affects everyone who has come out of Egypt in the Exodus.

The First Temple built by King Solomon and the Kingdom of Judah was destroyed by the Babylonians led by Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BCE and the Judeans were sent into the Babylonian exile.

The Fallen One is seeking to destroy the entire nation.  The first temple is destroyed and the Jews are carted off to Babylon.

The Second Temple built by Ezra and Nehemiah was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE, scattering the people of Judea and commencing the Jewish exile from the Holy Land.  According to the Talmud in tractate Ta’anit, the destruction of the Second Temple began on the Ninth of Av and the Temple continued to burn throughout the Tenth of Av.

More of the same here as the Romans destroy the focal point of the Jewish nation, the Temple, and then scatter the remaining Jews to the four corners of their empire.

The Romans crushed Bar Kokhba’s revolt and destroyed the city of Betar, killing over 100,000 Jews, in 132 CE.[11]

Following the Roman siege of Jerusalem, Roman commander Turnus Rufus plowed the site of the Temple and the surrounding area, in 133 CE. [12]

This is the final straw for the Romans, and Jews entering what was once Jerusalem did so on pain of death.

There are other events that fall on the ninth of Av of which we should take note.  They are:

The First Crusade was declared by Pope Urban II in 1095, killing 10,000 Jews in its first month and destroying Jewish communities in France and the Rhineland. (See footnote #79.)

Jews were expelled from England in 1290. (See footnote #79.)

Jews were expelled from Spain in 1492. (Seefootnote #80.)

On Tisha B’Av 1914 (August 1, 1914), World War I broke out, causing unprecedented devastation across Europe and set the stage for World War II and the Holocaust. (Seefootnote #80.)

On the eve of Tisha B’Av 1942, the mass deportation began of Jews from the Warsaw Ghetto en route to Treblinka. [13]

The Jewish community center in Buenos Aires was bombed, killing 86 and wounding 300 others, on Monday, July 18, 1994, the 10th of Av. Jewish Calendar 1994.

The Israeli withdrawal from 25 settlements in the Gaza Strip and northern Samaria, considered a calamity by some Jews and Israelis but necessary or positive for Israel by others, began on August 14, 2005, the day after Tisha B’Av. (Forced evacuations of remaining residents began on August 17.)

It is obvious that there is a cosmic connection to this date.  It is not a coincidence that these calamities that befell the Jews happened on or very close to the ninth of Av.  I recently blogged about this date and I have learned to keep an eye on world events every year when we near the time of the ninth of Av.

Dates, times, and geographical settings are of great importance to the agenda of the Fallen One.  He uses these to further his agenda….

Commentary & Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

There is a gathering storm and when it breaks it may cause a world-wide financial tsunami.  Spain, is now being compared to Greece, which for all practical purposes is on the financial ropes.  This was reflected in our stock market yesterday. Europe’s debt weighs down stocks…Wal-Mart shares plunge on bribery allegation…Sour outlook

The USA is TRILLIONS of dollars in debt and our president continues to spend, spend, spend, hoping to spend our way out of the recession.  It’s not going to work and I’ve addressed this before so I won’t beat a dead horse again, but the BLOG about Johnny’s lemonade stand covered this.  Briefly if Johnny keeps borrowing money to upgrade his stand and never sells any lemonade he’s going to go belly up.  This is how it is at the moment in the USA, we’re spending more than we are making and the guys in the Beltway aren’t changing their tune any time soon as it’s the same old song of bail outs and spending.

Here’s what I see coming, and I hope I’m wrong.  I am expecting to see the war in the Middle East erupt in the next few months.  Specifically around July 28, as this is the 9th of Av, which historically for Israel and the Jews has been calamitous. (I cover this in The Cosmic Chess Match)   This war will be WWIII and may topple the already fragile global economy.  (Note the article: In other News section – about Iran and the Strait of Hormuz)  I believe that we are in a very precarious state of affairs and when this war erupts it will send gas prices soaring, which in turn will affect everything else, especially commodities.

I believe that we are in the birth pains that are mentioned by Jesus in Matthew 24 and elsewhere.  He lists a series of signs that we are to look for.  The question is this, are we living in the time when these signs are being revealed?  My answer to this is yes, we are, and so we should be aware that there are supernatural forces that are at work pushing The Fallen One’s agenda forward, which is to set up a global financial as well as religious system.  This is his end game.

In Closing today’s post:  I know more doom and gloom, and who wants to hear that?  I could blog about something else, but then I wouldn’t be true to what I believe I have been called to do, and that is to be a watchman.  I call it like I see it, and from my perspective what I see is a gradual build up toward a climax – a storm that is gathering and at some point will break.  If you were going for a ride in a boat on a lake and I knew of an approaching storm and said nothing about it, the guilt would be on me.  However if I warned you and you shrugged it off then the guilt is on you.  The Gathering storm will break at some point, and the war in the Middle East will be the start of it.

Commentary & Analysis

by

L. A. Marzulli

While the news of the day heralds the release of George Zimmerman, the clock is ticking.  While the media tells us of yet another alleged, anti-semitic remark from Mel Gibson, the clock is ticking.  While the actions of a few secret service men become national news, and men who allegedly hooked up with prostitutes are publicly eviscerated, the clock is ticking.  While the Fox News web site is informing me of vital information, what Buddy Holly and other “stars” who are deceased would like if they were alive now, the clock is ticking.  How old would they be now? | Fox News  

I think you get the point. Our media is in the business of distraction and obfuscation with a side order of endless bread and circus for everyone, and while they are engaged in that, the clock is ticking.  What clock you ask?  The prophetic time piece of the God who has is not dead, knows the beginning from the end, has not abdicated His throne,  and because he resides outside of time and space as we know it, calls out a priori, with great specificity, events that will happen in the future, His word will come to pass!

What amazes me is that Nostradamus is given his own TV show – he’s only about 60% accurate, and I’m being generous with that number – and the Guidebook to the Supernatural, i.e. The Bible, collects dust and is barely mentioned.  Nostradamus Effect — History.com TV Episodes, Schedule, & Video

More people know more about Nostradamus, the Mayan 2012 end-of-the-world prophecy, and the latest meter readings on Ghost Busters, than they do about Ezekiel 38, Psalm 83 and Isaiah 17.   There are those who do not see any significance with the Jews being gathered back into their ancient homeland of Israel and that position, in my opinion, is a faulty one, as most end-time prophecy deals with the Jewish people.  Jerusalem has become a stumbling block for all the nations, just like prophecy tells us she will be in the last days. The Middle East is set to explode and when it does all eyes will be on Israel, again, like prophecy tells us it will be in these last days.  We see the nascent beginnings of a one world government.  Weather patterns are bizarre – see In Other News for stories –  fish and animal deaths continue, volcanoes threaten a nuclear winter, Fukishima is not a done deal, North Korea is once again threatening to destroy South Korea,  The Ring Of Fire keeps putting out 7.0 and bigger earthquakes, and war and rumors of war are pretty much everywhere. Oh, I forgot to mention the soon to be revealing of the so-called extraterrestrial presence.

In closing todays post:  We are truly in tenuous times,  wrought with uncertainty.  We can immerse ourselves in the news of the day, shop at COSCO on the weekend, and stuff our refrigerators with food and think that, it can’t happen here.  However, the clock is ticking and in my opinion the signs are all around us.  We are in the birth pains that Jesus warned us would precede His return.   The clock is ticking….
