An Obscure Law In Pennsylvania Could Result In 100,000 Mail-In Ballots Being Thrown Out Without Ever Being Counted

We are still more than 40 days away from the election, and already we are seeing huge red flags regarding the integrity of the voting process in some states.  No matter who you support, you should want the upcoming election to be fair.  Every American should be able to vote, all of those votes should be counted, and the decision that the American people make should be respected.  Unfortunately, it appears that this is likely to be the most chaotic election in modern American history, and wrangling over what votes should be counted and what votes should not be counted is likely to persist long after election night is over.  In the end, it would not be surprising to see the outcome of the election end up at the Supreme Court, and that is a scenario that none of us should want to see.   Let me give you an example that shows why I am so concerned.  In Pennsylvania, a recent legal decision requires officials to throw out mail-in ballots without counting them if voters do not return them in “secrecy envelopes”… Philadelphia’s top elections official is warning of electoral chaos in the presidential battleground state if lawmakers there do not remove a provision in Pennsylvania law that, under a days-old court decision, requires counties to throw out mail-in ballots returned without secrecy envelopes. This is a very big deal, because large numbers of votes could be voided in one of our most important swing states. According to the Washington Times, it is being estimated that “more than 100,000 mail-in ballots” could potentially be thrown out… Some 30,000 to 40,000 mail-in ballots could arrive without secrecy envelopes in Philadelphia alone in November’s presidential election, Deeley estimated, and the state Supreme Court’s interpretation of current law forces election officials to throw them out. Statewide, that could mean throwing out more than 100,000 mail-in ballots in the Nov. 3 presidential election, according to some estimates. In 2016, President Trump won the state of Pennsylvania by just 44,292 votes. So eliminating 100,000 votes could potentially swing the outcome from one candidate to the other. And if the national results are very close, whoever wins Pennsylvania could ultimately determine who wins the White House. Sadly, this is not the only reason to be deeply concerned about the integrity of the vote in Pennsylvania.  Last week, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania decided that the deadline for mail-in ballots will be “the Friday after Election Day”… The Pennsylvania Supreme Court issued three rulings on Thursday, extended the deadline for mail-in ballots to the Friday after Election Day, ruled voters could use dropbox to return mail-in ballots, and removed the Green Party’s presidential ticket from the ballot. So does this mean that countless numbers of voters in the state could potentially cast votes after election day and still have them counted? I am just imagining a scenario where one party is barely behind in the state on election night and then makes an all-out push to have more people vote by mail on Wednesday and Thursday.  If the party that is in the lead does not match that late push, that could also be something that flips the outcome of the election. There are so many things that could go wrong, and I believe that we are headed for a giant mess no matter who wins. Signs of trouble continue to pile up in other states as well.  In Wisconsin, a federal judge just decided that absentee ballots “can be counted up to six days after the Nov. 3 presidential election”… A federal judge ruled Monday that absentee ballots in battleground Wisconsin can be counted up to six days after the Nov. 3 presidential election as long as they are postmarked by Election Day. The highly anticipated ruling, unless overturned, means that the outcome of the presidential race in Wisconsin might not be known for days after polls close. Under current law, the deadline for returning an absentee ballot to have it counted is 8 p.m. on Election Day. Wisconsin is another one of the most critical swing states, and so this is very troubling news. In so many states, we are going to have to wait for a long time after the election before we get final results, and that period of uncertainty is going to be very bad for our nation. I just have such a bad feeling about what is going to happen in November.  It is being estimated that up to 40 percent of the population will vote by mail, and that number is far, far higher than anything that we have ever seen before. And we also have millions and millions of people registering to vote without ever having to come face to face with anyone.  In fact, Facebook has announced that they have “already registered 2.5 million Americans to vote”… Facebook says it has already registered 2.5 million Americans to vote in the upcoming presidential election, with a goal of registering 4 million total before Election Day. In a blog post in advance of National Voter Registration Day on Tuesday, the social-media giant touted its combined registration figures from Facebook, Instagram and Messenger, extrapolating from conversion rates from several states. Seriously? We all know that Facebook has millions of fake profiles.  In fact, I get friend requests from fake profiles constantly. So who decided that it would be okay for them to register “millions of people” to vote? And the way that some states are aggressively promoting mail-in voting is making a lot of people really upset.  One of my readers that intends to vote in person told me that in the past five weeks “my wife and I have received three requests each for mail in ballots!” Another one of my readers has been very confused by the forms that she has been getting in the mail, because they make it seem like voting by mail is not optional… “A few weeks ago I got a form in the mail about voting by mail. Days later I asked a neighbor about it because I want to vote in person and they said that we can vote in person. In today’s mail I received a letter from my secretary of state asking me why I had not begun the process yet. It doesn’t say that it’s optional, they are just leading us to believe it’s the only way we are going to be allowed to vote.” This enormous push for mail-in votes is going to create an unprecedented mess, and the outcome of the presidential election is likely to be contested no matter who is ahead on election night. Needless to say, a contested outcome is likely to spark even more civil unrest, and that won’t be good for our country at all. This is such a critical moment for America, and the voice of every American should be respected. But if the integrity of our voting process is compromised, that could result in someone winning the election that the American people did not choose, and that is something that none of us should want. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

The Open Supreme Court Seat Is A Final Test For Trump, Senate Republicans And America’s Conservatives

The sudden passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg shocked the entire country, and it has set up a battle for the ages in Washington.  Democrats are promising to fight with everything that they have got to keep that seat from being filled before the election, but in the end there isn’t that much they can do.  The Republicans control the White House and the U.S. Senate, and so they have the power to fill that seat if they wish to do so.  Unfortunately, there are already cracks in Republican solidarity.  Lisa Murkowski and Susan Collins have both publicly stated that they will not support a confirmation vote before election day, and two more defections would push Republicans below the 50 votes that they need to confirm a nominee.  But for the purposes of this article, I will assume that there will be no more defections.   I believe that this open Supreme Court seat represents a critical test.  But it is not a test for the Democrats.  We already know what they believe and where they stand, and they have absolutely no intention of changing.  So there is no need for Democrats to be weighed on the scales of justice, because that case is already closed. Instead, I believe that this is a test for President Trump, for the Republicans in the U.S. Senate and for America’s conservatives. By now, conservatives should have complete control of the Supreme Court.  15 of the last 19 justices have been nominated by Republican presidents, and if Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat is filled by President Trump that will make it 16 out of the last 20. Sadly, we do not have a conservative Supreme Court at this point.  In fact, the Supreme Court has been very liberal for more than 50 years. How in the world could this possibly have happened? Well, the truth is that Democrats and Republicans have a completely different approach to Supreme Court nominations.  When a Democratic president nominates someone to the Supreme Court, they make sure that they know exactly what they are getting and they never make any mistakes. But Republican presidents have nominated “conservatives” that have turned out to be very liberal time after time. Just because a Republican president nominates a judge, that does not mean that he or she is “conservative”.  We’ve got to quit believing the mainstream media when they put those labels on judges, because the mainstream media should not be trusted. For example, just consider Neil Gorsuch.  The mainstream media told us that he was “very conservative” when Trump nominated him to the Supreme Court, but instead he has voted with the liberals repeatedly. But we shouldn’t be surprised by the fact that he has turned out to be a liberal, because he was attending an extremely liberal church when he was nominated… And in a twist that may surprise religious conservatives who welcomed Gorsuch’s appointment, church leader Rev. Susan Springer, 58, has said she is pro-gay marriage and offers blessings to same sex couples. The church, which trumpets its ‘inclusive’ ethos on its website, also operates a homeless outreach program that includes an LGBT center and a sexual health clinic in a pamphlet setting out the best places for those in need of help. And Rev. Springer is so virulently anti-Trump that she attended “the anti-Trump Women’s March in Denver the day after the President’s inauguration”. Unfortunately, the red flags were ignored and Gorsuch is now a member of the Supreme Court. Next, let’s talk about Brett Kavanaugh.  When he was nominated, the mainstream media couldn’t stop talking about how “conservative” he was, and the left passionately opposed his nomination. But at the time, I strongly pointed out that conservatives should be the ones opposing his nomination, and the passage of time has proven that I was right.  Kavanaugh has also repeatedly voted with the liberals on the Court, and he has proven that he is not a social conservative at all. When he was nominated, the way that he was able to get Republican Senator Susan Collins to vote for his confirmation was by assuring her that Roe v. Wade was a settled precedent and by essentially promising her that he would not vote to overturn it if the decision was going to be a 5 to 4 decision.  You can watch Susan Collins discuss her meeting with Kavanaugh right here. There is no universe in which such a promise would be okay, and Kavanaugh’s nomination should have been immediately withdrawn once this became known. Instead, Kavanaugh was confirmed and now we are stuck with him. So now President Trump has a third opportunity to nominate a member of the Supreme Court, and this is a critical test for him. The only acceptable option is for him to nominate a judge that will publicly pledge to overturn Roe v. Wade, and none of the candidates currently being discussed has done this. After Trump nominates a judge, the Republicans in the Senate will also face a test. If the judge that has been nominated will publicly pledge to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Republicans in the Senate have a duty to confirm that nominee before Trump’s term ends. But if that judge will not publicly pledge to overturn Roe v. Wade, the Republicans in the Senate have a duty to reject that nominee. Lastly, this process will also be a test for conservatives all over America. In the past, conservatives across the country have gotten behind “conservative” nominees even though there were all sorts of red flags and even though none of them would publicly pledge to overturn Roe v. Wade. As a result, we have the mess on the Court that we have today. Now the conservatives of this country face one final test. If we overwhelmingly reject any candidate that will not publicly pledge to overturn Roe v. Wade, we will pass the test. But if we just go along with whoever is nominated no matter what they believe like we have done before, then we will fail the test. We have failed so many times before, and now we have one final chance. If we get a third strike against us in less than four years, I fear that we may be all out of chances. Already, I am seeing calls for President Trump to nominate a moderate judge because that will supposedly help his chances in November. There is going to be so much pressure on Trump to make a choice for political reasons, and many Republicans in the Senate will also be feeling a tremendous amount of political pressure as well. Let us hope that our leaders have the courage to make the right decisions, because this is a test that we simply cannot afford to fail. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

The “Peace Agreement” That Israel Just Signed Is Another Huge Step Toward A Palestinian State

The historic agreement that Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain just signed is being hailed as a major leap toward lasting peace in the Middle East.  But the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain are not exactly the major players in the region, and what Israel had to give up in order to get these two Arab nations to “normalize relations” has a lot of people scratching their heads.  First of all, annexation of any territory in Judea and Samaria has now been put on hold indefinitely.  But much more importantly, the treaty that was just signed commits Israel to “a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict”, and obviously a “negotiated solution” would involve the creation of a Palestinian state.   Unfortunately, very few are talking about the deeper implications of this agreement.  Instead, just about everyone seems extremely excited that “peace” has been achieved… President Donald Trump heralded a pair of historic agreements formalizing diplomatic relations between Israel and two Gulf Arab nations in a ceremony Tuesday on the White House South Lawn. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the foreign ministers of the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain signed the accords – written in English, Hebrew and Arabic – marking a major geopolitical shift in the Middle East and giving Trump a platform as peacemaker as he heads into the fall reelection campaign. If you read mainstream media accounts, this treaty sounds absolutely wonderful.  We are being told that as a result of this agreement Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain “will establish embassies, exchange ambassadors and cooperate on a broad range of issues, from trade to health care to security”. All of that sounds great, and none of those developments should upset anyone. And if that was all that the agreement covered, there wouldn’t be a problem. In the end, we should all want peace, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu used the word “peace” repeatedly during his remarks at the signing ceremony in Washington… “To all of Israel’s friends in the Middle East – those who are with us today and those who will join us tomorrow – I say, salaam aleichem, peace unto thee, Shalom,” he continued. “The blessings of peace that we make today will be enormous,” he continued, “first because this peace will eventually expand to include other Arab states, and ultimately, it can end the Arab-Israel conflict once and for all.” Bahrain’s foreign affairs minister also sounded quite optimistic when he spoke to the press… “For too long, the Middle East has been set back by conflict and mistrust, causing untold destruction and thwarting the potential of generations of our best and brightest,” said Abdullatif bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahrain’s foreign affairs minister. “Now, I’m convinced. We have the opportunity to change that.” But at what price has “peace” been achieved? According to the Jerusalem Post, the document specifically requires Israel to work toward “a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that meets the legitimate needs and aspirations of both peoples”… The “Treaty of Peace, Diplomatic Relations and Full Normalization Between the United Arab Emirates and The State of Israel” recalls the ceremony in the White House in January, in which US President Donald Trump presented his peace plan and commits the sides to the treaty to “continuing their efforts to achieve a just, comprehensive, realistic and enduring solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.” It also commits them “to working together to realize a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict that meets the legitimate needs and aspirations of both peoples, and to advance comprehensive Middle East peace, stability and prosperity.” The Palestinians simply would not accept anything short of a formal Palestinian state as a “negotiated solution”, and so many conservatives in Israel are wondering why Netanyahu would possibly agree to this. And one of the top officials from the UAE made it quite clear that he believed that a commitment to move toward a Palestinian state was part of the agreement that he was signing… A Palestinian state has been referenced in the US brokered Abraham Accord signed between Israel and the United Arab Emirates on Tuesday, said Anwar Gargash, the UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been under pressure from the Israeli right wing not to do anything that would cement recognition of a Palestinian state but Gargash clarified that the document briefly mentions a two-state resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, although the document deals largely with the bilateral relations between Israel and the UAE. If Israel is willing to go this far just to achieve “peace” with the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, what would they be willing to do for a comprehensive peace agreement that would include Saudi Arabia and other major powers in the region? Just before the signing ceremony, President Trump claimed that there were five or six other countries that will soon be ready to make similar agreements with Israel… At least five or six countries are ready to make peace with Israel, President Donald Trump said at a press briefing alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of the signing of the historic normalization between the Jewish state, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain. “We have many nations ready to follow” and make peace with Israel, the president said, adding that “at least five or six countries coming along very quickly.” Many observers believe that Oman could be next, but the big one that everyone is watching is Saudi Arabia… Several diplomatic sources have hinted that the Sultanate of Oman – which Netanyahu famously visited in 2018 – would be the next country to announce a normalization agreement with Israel. Oman’s leader spoke with Trump last week. Saudi Arabia, which allowed an Israeli and American delegation to cross its airspace in August for the first direct flight between Israel and the United Arab Emirates, is also said to be considering a warming of ties with Israel even though Saudi leaders have said publicly that they are not yet ready for full normalization. I don’t expect any more major announcements before the U.S. presidential election in November, but once the election is over I anticipate that more efforts will be made to achieve “lasting peace” in the Middle East. Eventually a Palestinian state will be formally established, and my new book explains some very specific things that will happen once that threshold is crossed. Sadly, I don’t think that the Trump administration understands the danger in trying to create a Palestinian state, and if Joe Biden wins in November we can be assured that his new administration will push for a “negotiated solution” really hard. One way or another, a Palestinian state is coming, and that is really, really bad news for all of us. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

Will Sally Become The First Hurricane To Hit New Orleans In The Month Of September Since Hurricane Katrina?

After everything else we have been through in 2020, now here comes Hurricane Sally.  It is the seventh hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season, and it could end up being the most destructive.  On Monday it strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane with 100 mph winds, and we are being told that it could potentially become a Category 3 storm before it finally makes landfall.  But the wind speed is not what makes this storm potentially so dangerous.  Hurricane Sally is expected to slow down significantly as it approaches the Gulf Coast, and we are now being told that some areas could see up to two feet of rain.  That could mean “life-threatening flooding”, especially if this storm directly hits New Orleans.   We all remember what happened when Hurricane Katrina hit the city of New Orleans in September 2005.  Since that time, we have not seen a hurricane directly hit the city of New Orleans during the month of September, and this is something that I have been tracking every year. At this hour, we still don’t know where Hurricane Sally will make landfall.  It is heading toward New Orleans, but some forecasters expect it to make a very sharp turn to the north right before it gets there. But what if it doesn’t? In 2005, Hurricane Katrina was a Category 3 storm when it finally reached New Orleans, and it is anticipated that Hurricane Sally will be a Category 2 or a Category 3 storm when it ultimately makes landfall.  In fact, weather.com says that “additional strengthening is anticipated” in the hours ahead… Hurricane Sally has rapidly intensified and additional strengthening is anticipated as it tracks toward the northern Gulf Coast, where it will bring an extremely dangerous storm surge, flooding rainfall and damaging winds early this week. Sally will also pose a threat of flooding rainfall farther inland across parts of the Southeast. So if Hurricane Sally is already a Category 2 storm right now, it would seem likely that it would reach Category 3 at some point. But what makes this storm so unique is that it is supposed to move extremely slowly once it reaches the Gulf Coast, and that could mean “up to 48 hours of storm surge and rainfall”… Sally’s outer bands should begin to reach the Gulf Coast Monday morning with significant progress inland not expected until Wednesday morning. This likely allows for up to 48 hours of storm surge and rainfall which could be a very dangerous situation. If the hardest hit areas are not densely populated, the overall damage may not be that dramatic. But if this storm were to hover over the New Orleans area for about 48 hours, we would be talking about the potential for an absolutely massive catastrophe. So it all depends on where this storm ultimately goes. Of course many of us didn’t even realize until recently that a threat was looming, because this storm only became a tropical depression a few days ago… In less than 24 hours, Sally went from being a mass of showers and thunderstorms east of the Bahamas on Friday afternoon and to a tropical depression on Friday evening, before becoming a tropical storm on Saturday afternoon. And I think that Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards put it very well when he said that Hurricane Sally “seemed to come out of nowhere”… “I know for a lot of people, this storm seemed to come out of nowhere,” Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards said. “We need everybody to pay attention to this storm. Let’s take this one seriously.” In 2005, it was the unprecedented flooding that made Hurricane Katrina so horrific, and this storm has the potential to create a similar sort of a disaster. In the worst hit portions of Louisiana, Hurricane Katrina dumped up to 15 inches of rain, but Hurricane Sally could possibly dump up to 2 feet of rain in some areas… As it lurches over the Gulf Coast, Hurricane Sally could bring 8 to 16 inches of rain, and some areas could see up to two feet. “Life-threatening flash flooding is possible. In addition, this rainfall will likely lead to widespread minor to isolated major flooding on area rivers,” forecasters at the Hurricane Center said. So should we be concerned? You better believe it. In fact, Governor Edwards is openly warning that New Orleans could definitely be facing tremendous flooding once again… “New Orleans is better prepared for a hurricane than she’s ever been before, but if you get 18 inches of water in 10 hours, I think Aspen, Colorado, would probably flood. So I’m concerned, but not paralyzed by it,” Edwards said. And this comes at a time when much of Louisiana is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Laura.  More than 80,000 people are still without power, and more than 200,000 households still do not have clean drinking water. So this is a really bad time for another major storm to be coming along, and because of how slowly it is moving it is likely that Hurricane Sally will be far more destructive than Hurricane Laura was. But let us hope that a worst case scenario can be avoided.  If it makes a sharp turn to the north soon, that will probably mean that New Orleans will be spared. Unfortunately, time is running out, and as I write this article this storm is still heading toward a date with destiny. Here in 2020, it has just been one thing after another, and now the major disasters are happening so frequently that they are starting to overlap one another.  Yesterday I wrote about the historic wildfires that are absolutely ravaging the west coast, and now today I am writing about how New Orleans is potentially facing the worst disaster that they have seen since Hurricane Katrina. And this is just the beginning.  As “the perfect storm” continues to intensify, things are going to get even worse. Unfortunately, most Americans are still completely clueless about all of this. Most people still think that everything will return to “normal” very soon, but that simply is not going to happen. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

11 Facts That Prove That The Apocalyptic Wildfires On The West Coast Are Unlike Anything We Have Ever Seen Before

At this hour, a thick blanket of smoke from the horrific wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington is covering much of the western portion of the country.  U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oregon has used the word “apocalyptic” to describe the utter devastation that has been caused by these fires, and that is not an exaggeration whatsoever.  There are some small towns that have literally been wiped off the face of the map during the past week, and some of them may never be rebuilt.  This has already been a wildfire season like no other along the west coast, and we are just now entering the heart of the 2020 fire season.  It is very difficult to imagine another couple months of this, but that is potentially what we are facing.   By the time that it is over, nobody living on the west coast will ever forget the chaos that this wildfire season has caused.  Some of the largest fires have been burning for weeks, and all of the smoke is having a dramatic impact on large cities such as San Francisco… The cityscape resembles the surface of a distant planet, populated by a masked alien culture. The air, choked with blown ash, is difficult to breathe. There is the Golden Gate Bridge, looming in the distance through a drift-smoke haze, and the Salesforce Tower, which against the blood-orange sky appears as a colossal spaceship in a doomsday film. San Francisco, and much of California, has never been like this. Yes, every year there are wildfires, but what we are watching this year is on an entirely different level.  The following are 11 facts that prove the apocalyptic wildfires in California, Oregon and Washington and unlike anything we have seen before… #1 According to the National Interagency Fire Center, more than 30,000 firefighters are currently contending with 94 large fires that have burned more than 4.6 million acres in 12 western states. #2 40 of those large fires have prompted evacuation orders, and many have been forced to flee “with just the clothes on their backs” because the fires have moved so rapidly. #3 The August Complex Fire has already officially become the largest wildfire in the history of the state of California, and at this hour it continues to rage out of control. #4 Five of the ten largest wildfires in California history have happened in 2020. #5 In Oregon, 40,000 people have already been evacuated, and hundreds of thousands more have been told to prepare to potentially evacuate. #6 On Saturday, the air quality index reading in Salem, Oregon was 512.  That measurement was “off the charts”, because the scale only goes up to 500. #7 Prior to 2020, we had only witnessed a few “fire tornadoes” in all of U.S. history, but now they are occurring “every week or two”. #8 According to the Washington Post, some wildfire plumes have risen “up to 10 miles high”, and that is definitely extremely unusual. #9 About a week after a fire tornado hit the Huntington Lake area, some fires are still burning root systems underground “at more than 1,500 degrees”… A week later, Donnelly said Saturday that the Creek Fire continues to burn in the area, with some fires occurring underground and attacking the root system of trees at more than 1,500 degrees. “Fire inspectors from the office of the State Fire Marshall stated that fire behavior in the Kennolyn area is the worst they had witnessed in their career,” Donnelly wrote in a post that was shared on social media, timestamped as 11 a.m. Saturday. “Unfortunately, it will be some time before it is safe to enter the burned areas.” #10 Even though we still have quite a bit of time to go, this has already been the worst wildfire season in California’s history and the second worst wildfire season in Washington’s history. #11 Sadly, the fire season still has another four months remaining, and there are at least seven weeks left in “prime fire season”. Of course the list above simply cannot express the incredible amount of pain and suffering that these fires have caused for so many people. When a reporter followed Betty Stevens of Phoenix, Oregon back to the spot where her home once stood, what they discovered was too horrible for words… Betty Stevens stumbled down the street that had until a few hours ago seemed so familiar, her feet crunching through ash and debris as she entered the smoking remains of her neighborhood. There were melted street signs. Trees burned down to stumps. Power lines across the road. And everywhere she turned, choking, acrid smoke. Sobbing behind the face mask she normally wears for her job as a hospital respiratory therapist helping coronavirus patients, Stevens, 31, video recorded herself earlier this week as she stumbled through the neighborhood, raw emotion in her voice, sometimes unable to form words, moaning in obvious pain. Could you imagine losing your home and everything inside of it? Over the next several weeks, fires will continue to sweep across our western states and many more homes and buildings will likely be lost. For many, it will be the final straw.  As I have discussed previously, large numbers of people have already moved away from the west coast, and there are others that are seriously considering doing so… Monica Gupta Mehta and her husband, an entrepreneur, have been through tech busts and booms, earthquakes, wildfire seasons and power outages. But it was not until the skies darkened and cast an unsettling orange light on their Palo Alto home earlier this week that they ever considered moving their family of five somewhere else. “For the first time in 20-something years, the thought crossed our minds: Do we really want to live here?” said Mehta, who is starting an education tech company. As a very small child, I spent several years on the west coast, and I will always have a great fondness for how it was in the old days.  But if you have read my new book, you already know how I feel about the west coast’s future. There are very few areas on the entire globe that have been blessed with more natural beauty than the west coast of the United States.  Unfortunately, natural beauty is not everything. Here in 2020, it has just been one thing after another, and the west coast has been hit harder than just about anywhere else. Many are hoping that better times are ahead in 2021, but I definitely would not be counting on that. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

Pastor Dana Coverstone Was Just Given Glimpses Of What America Will Look Like In The Post-Election Period

We just got even more confirmation that we are on the verge of one of the darkest chapters in American history.  The glimpses into our future that Pastor Dana Coverstone was just shown are extremely sobering, and I would very much encourage everyone to share his latest video with as many people as possible.  One of the things that I appreciate so much about Pastor Dana is that he is not trying to make a big name for himself.  He is just a humble pastor from a little town in Kentucky that has had some absolutely amazing experiences with God, and he probably never imagined that something like this would ever happen to him.  Sometimes God uses the people that we would least expect, and I believe that He does this because He is trying to make a point.  There are so many big names out there that are exalting themselves, but God wants us to understand that we should be focusing on building His Kingdom instead of working so hard to build our own.   Over the last several months I have watched Pastor Dana carefully, and two things have really stood out. Number one, he still believes that the Bible is the Word of God. Number two, he still preaches the message of the cross. Once upon a time, both of those things would have been true of most evangelical Christian pastors in America, but today men like Pastor Dana are a dying breed. I am very thankful that Pastor Coverstone’s church has been getting so much attention because of everything that has happened, because we need a lot more churches like that all across America. Just a few days ago, Pastor Coverstone posted a new video in which he shared what he was shown during a “series of glimpses” that occurred between August 28th and September 4th.  One of the things that he witnessed was a finger underlining the month of December, and then the page on the calendar flipped and the finger underlined the month of January. It would be easy to assume that the time frame for what he saw must be December 2020 through January 2021, but you know what they say about assumptions. Personally, I believe that everything that Pastor Coverstone has been shown in all of his experiences will come to pass, but I have also seen a lot of people come up with some really wild interpretations of what he was shown. In the end, our interpretations can easily be wrong, and that is absolutely critical to understand. With all of that being said, let’s get into his new video.  You can find it right here, and I would share it with everyone that you can. [embedded content] A partial transcript of what he shared during the video can be found here, and one of the things that really struck me was the fact that he saw global economic activity come to a virtual standstill… Then I saw long food lines and people waiting for what seemed like hours, and they were standing in line and not in cars. I saw ships in ports on both coasts sitting idle and nothing at sea moving. There were headlines saying that the Baltic Dry Index [Global shipping of raw materials] was dead and that nothing was moving in trade around the world. As I detail on The Economic Collapse Blog, global trade has already fallen to the lowest level on record, but it sounds like things are going to get a whole lot worse. So what event or events will cause this to happen? I would think that it would have to be something more than just chaos surrounding our upcoming election.  To me, it sounds like something must happen that greatly affects the entire planet. But Pastor Coverstone also saw something that would specifically happen to our nation.  He was shown two headlines that said “Nationwide Outages Plague Southwest and Americans Don’t Know Who To Blame For Darkness”… I continued to see shuttered properties [closed for business] and people in homes wearing coats while looking out closed curtains. Headlines said Nationwide Outages Plague Southwest and Americans Don’t Know Who To Blame For Darkness. Darkness in areas of the nation stretched into Canada and I saw America as lights flickering, like the bulb was about to go but still had a little light left. As I have discussed previously, we have already seen rolling blackouts in the state of California for the very first time since 2001. But this sounds much bigger than that. And why would the outages just be limited to the Southwest? That is a very good question, and right now I don’t have the answer. Another thing that Pastor Coverstone witnessed involved the city of St. Louis… I also saw the city of St. Louis and men under the Arch with suitcases who were getting into black SUVs and headed east and west from the Mississippi River. The suitcases appeared to be like the nuclear suitcases from the Reagan administration complete with the handcuffs to secure the case to the individual. They were dressed as businessmen and had copies of the Wall Street Journal under their arms and heavily tinted sunglasses. Each had a watch alarm that went off at precisely the same second and that is when they picked up the suitcases and got into the vehicles to be driven to their destinations. I certainly don’t know what all of that means, but it definitely sounds ominous. At the end of all of the usual experiences that Pastor Coverstone has been having, he has been told to “brace yourself”, and this latest one was no exception… “Brace yourself, brace, brace, brace yourself on the Word and My promises and do not rely upon your own strength.” If you are reading this and you are wondering why we should listen to Pastor Coverstone, the answer is actually quite simple. He was shown the major events of the first half of this year in advance, and he was shown the exact period of time in which they would happen. The following comes from a transcript that my wife put together of the very first video that Pastor Coverstone released earlier this year… Back in December I woke up, I had a dream. In that dream I saw a calendar. Starting January 2020. It was being flipped.  I saw January,  I saw February,  I saw March.  When March came up the hand held it and I saw the thing of finger underline the month of March, and the tap it three times. So underline the month of March, tapped it three times. So to me it was emphasis, something’s going to happen in March. Then I saw April, May, June. When June came, the hand underlined June again and tapped it three times. Then, in the vision I saw people marching, I saw protests. I saw people wearing masks, I saw lines going into hospitals. I saw typical medical doctors with needles or syringes, I saw people on ventilators I saw people who were very, very sick, very, very ill. I saw newspaper headlines trumpeting thousands of people getting sick. I saw ambulances, just flying down roads, and then I saw cities on fire. I saw buildings being burned. I saw protesters with masks. I saw people who had their fists in the air, people who were yelling and screaming angry at just at the world. I saw courthouses,  I saw state houses surrounded.  I saw people who were mad at the world. I saw I saw guns shotguns specifically put in the air, held like this, (showing above his head) and I saw barriers within cities. I told several men in my church about this and I can confirm who those men were and they’ll confirm what I’m telling you is what I told them. The virus that has thrown our country into chaos started spreading rapidly in the U.S. in March, and tremendous civil unrest erupted all over the U.S. in June after George Floyd’s tragic death at the end of May. But even though Pastor Coverstone saw all these things in advance, there are Christian leaders that have put together very long videos explaining why we shouldn’t believe anything else he has seen. I have seen some of those videos and they don’t make any sense at all.  In fact, it is clear that the real reason why they are putting out those videos is because Pastor Coverstone’s warnings directly contradict the “feel good” messages that they have been delivering to their followers. I very much appreciate that Pastor Coverstone has chosen to sound the alarm by sharing what he has been shown, and as I detail in my new book there are countless others that have also been sounding the alarm about what God has been showing them regarding our future. Unfortunately, there are so many people out there that do not want to listen no matter how clear the warnings are. As a whole, our society is running away from God as fast as it possibly can, and in the end we shall reap what we have sown. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

Seattle To Be Hit By A Giant Tsunami 2 Hours And 20 Minutes After “The Big One” Strikes The Cascadia Subduction Zone

A giant tsunami along the west coast has been very heavy on my heart for the last 24 hours, and then when I saw a new Fox News article about a simulation that was just run by officials in Washington state I knew that I had to write an article.  Experts at the Washington Department of Natural Resources decided to simulate what would happen if a magnitude 9.0 earthquake struck along the Cascadia Subduction Zone, and what they discovered is really, really bad.  Such a seismic event would produce an absolutely massive tsunami, and the Fox News article says that waves “could reach Seattle in 2 hours and 20 minutes after an earthquake”.  And this is not just a hypothetical scenario that may or may not happen.  Scientists have repeatedly warned us that it is just a matter of time before such a disaster takes place, Steve Quayle has been relentlessly warning about this as well, and I have been encouraging people to move away from the region for years.   If you think that you will just be able to hop into your vehicle and escape the oncoming tsunami, you are just being delusional.  The highways will instantly become crammed with countless others that have the exact same idea, and they will become deathtraps. Of course if the quake happens in the middle of the night, most people will never have any idea that the tsunami is coming.  From the moment the earthquake happens, it will be just “15 to 20 minutes” before the initial wave starts hitting the outer coast… The simulations show there are some locations around the state where residents would have very little — if any — time to escape the onslaught of floodwaters because of the speed of the wave. In the videos, the initial wave could hit the state’s outer coast in 15 to 20 minutes after the ground starts shaking and the quake generates a tsunami. You can watch a YouTube video of the simulation that was performed right here.  If such an event happened tomorrow, the death and destruction would be unimaginable. Oregon State University paleoseismologist Chris Goldfinger believes that the Cascadia Subduction Zone could potentially produce an earthquake that is “almost 30 times more energetic” than anything that the San Andreas Fault could produce.  In a worst case scenario, Goldfinger says that a quake along the Cascadia Subduction Zone could create a colossal wall of water up to 100 feet high that would smash everything in front of it… The tsunami would bring water 20 to 80 – maybe even 100 – feet higher than today’s high tides. Most of the structures that have survived the killer quake but built too low will be smashed into by a devastating wall of water. And the next surge could be even higher, and the one after that higher still. It won’t just be the water causing destruction, but everything it picks up. Goldfinger described what would happen all around and on the spit of land where CBN News interviewed him in the middle of Newport, Oregon’s Yaquina Bay, a few hundred yards from the Pacific. “Then suddenly you’ve got a bay full of fishing boats, refrigerators, cars and everything else,” Goldfinger explained. “And it’s like a glacier of debris that’s just kind of sloshing back and forth.” We all remember watching the tsunami that the Fukushima earthquake in Japan caused. Well, an event of this nature would be far, far more destructive.  The following is what Steve Quayle once had to say about the amount of damage that we could potentially witness… “The amount of damage, and I am going to choose my words carefully, is going to be precedent setting. It’s going to be the combination of volcanos going off that are inland from the subduction zone where the plates meet, coupled with tsunamis. . . . When this happens, you will lose eight million to twenty million people. When it happens, you will lose all productivity in the electronic field, obviously Silicon Valley, and all food production in all of California, Oregon and Washington. When it happens, you will have a State of Emergency unlike any other. How about the refugees? There will be 3.5 million refugees to take care of. When this happens, what happens to the underground aquifers, and where does everybody go for fresh water? There will be years of drought, years of famine and years of water, water where did it all go? It is a very dire situation painted by computer models. This is not a sensational thing. It is a reality based, scientific study with the application of what happens.” Others have issued similar warnings.  In a previous article, I shared what the head of FEMA’s Region X once told the New Yorker… If the entire zone gives way at once, an event that seismologists call a full-margin rupture, the magnitude will be somewhere between 8.7 and 9.2. That’s the very big one. …By the time the shaking has ceased and the tsunami has receded, the region will be unrecognizable. Kenneth Murphy, who directs FEMA’s Region X, the division responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Alaska, says, “Our operating assumption is that everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.” In the Pacific Northwest, everything west of Interstate 5 covers some hundred and forty thousand square miles, including Seattle, Tacoma, Portland, Eugene, Salem (the capital city of Oregon), Olympia (the capital of Washington), and some seven million people. If you live in that area of the country or you know people that do, please read those paragraphs again. “Everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast” is a quote that I will never forget. I have tried to do my best to warn people that this is an event that is going to happen someday, and in my new book I share warnings from many others about a giant tsunami that will strike the west coast. Of course most people that live on the west coast are not interested in such warnings, and one day time will suddenly run out. But nobody will be able to say that they weren’t warned.  Experts have been assuring us that such a disaster is in our future for many years, and this new Fox News article is just the latest example. Like I said, this is a topic that is very heavy on my heart right now, and so I wrote this article.  My hope is that it will get to everyone that needs to see it. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.

All Of The Bad News In 2020 Is Causing A Shockingly High Number Of Americans To “Seriously Consider” Suicide

This is a very difficult article for me to write, but I definitely need to write it.  All over the country, people are considering suicide because of all the bad things that have happened this year, and things are only going to get even more challenging in 2021 and beyond.  This greatly grieves me, because suicide is never the answer to anything, and I wish that I could sit down individually with every person that is considering suicide and get them to understand this.  Our lives are meant to be lived with purpose, passion and great joy, and that doesn’t change when times get very difficult.  In fact, when challenging times come that is when bright lights are needed the most.   Personally, even though I am constantly writing about all of the hard things that are going on in the world, I am not down, I am not depressed, and I am not on any pills.  Instead, I am incredibly thankful for the gift of each new day, and there is no other time in all of human history that I would rather be living than right now. But if you allow your life to be defined by the system that the global elite have established, and if you are living for what you can get from that system, then the years ahead are going to be exceedingly difficult for you because that system is failing. Over the course of this year, the entire world has been thrown into a state of chaos by the coronavirus pandemic, the global economic collapse and the tremendous civil unrest that we have witnessed in major cities all over the planet.  According to a survey that the CDC recently conducted, all of this turmoil has had a dramatic affect on our mental health… At the end of June, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention surveyed almost 10,000 Americans on their mental health. They found symptoms of anxiety and depression were up sharply across the board between March and June, compared with the same time the previous year. And young people seemed to be the hardest-hit of any group. Almost 11 percent of all respondents to that survey said they had “seriously considered” suicide in the past 30 days. For those ages 18 to 24, the number was 1 in 4 — more than twice as high. Those numbers are absolutely heartbreaking. The years between 18 and 24 should be some of the greatest years of your entire life, and yet one out of every four Americans in that age group “seriously considered” committing suicide in just one month. That number alone is sufficient evidence to prove that our society has become a complete and utter failure.  The system that we are living in doesn’t give these young people any real meaning for their lives, it doesn’t provide them with hope, and it doesn’t give them any reason to be optimistic about the long-term future. And the truth is that suicides have been on the rise for many years.  In fact, CDC numbers show that the suicide rate has been increasing “every year since 2007”… The suicide rate among young people was already at a record high before the pandemic, and had increased every year since 2007, according to a new analysis of CDC data released on Thursday by the gun control group Everytown for Gun Safety. The new report, which came on World Suicide Prevention Day, notes that suicide was the second leading cause of death among young people after accidents. Shouldn’t the fact that the suicide rate just keeps going up year after year after year be a giant red flag for all of us? As a society, the direction that we are running is the exact opposite of where we should be going, and that greatly frustrates me.  Many of us keep sounding the alarm, but most people simply do not want to listen. But if we keep going down the same path, many more Americans will fall into despair, depression and self-destructive behaviors.  Just like the CDC numbers that I discussed earlier, a recent KFF tracking poll found that Americans have had an exceedingly difficult time dealing with the events of this year… In a KFF Tracking Poll conducted in mid-July, 53% of adults in the United States reported that their mental health has been negatively impacted due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. This is significantly higher than the 32% reported in March, the first time this question was included in KFF polling. Many adults are also reporting specific negative impacts on their mental health and wellbeing, such as difficulty sleeping (36%) or eating (32%), increases in alcohol consumption or substance use (12%), and worsening chronic conditions (12%), due to worry and stress over the coronavirus. As the pandemic wears on, ongoing and necessary public health measures expose many people to experiencing situations linked to poor mental health outcomes, such as isolation and job loss. If we can’t even deal with the problems that we are facing right now, how in the world are we going to handle what else is ahead? Sadly, our overall mental health was already in really bad shape coming into this year.  In 2019, it was being reported that “deaths of despair” in the United States had reached an all-time record high.  The following comes from NBC News… Rates of deaths from suicides, drug overdoses and alcohol have reached an all-time high in the United States, but some states have been hit far harder than others, according to a report released Wednesday by the Commonwealth Fund. When things get really crazy, it can be very tempting to try to find a way to escape. For some people, escaping means abusing alcohol or drugs, and for others it means becoming immersed in endless hours of self-destructive forms of entertainment. And of course some people attempt to “escape” permanently by committing suicide. But the truth is that you cannot run away from reality, and there is no reason to try to escape in the first place. You were born at this particular moment in history for a reason, there is a unique purpose for your life, and you have a job to do. All of human history has been building up to a great crescendo, and to be alive during this time is such an amazing privilege. In the movie Gladiator, Russell Crowe’s character made a statement that has always stuck with me.  He said that “what we do in life echoes in eternity”. If you make your life all about the global elite’s system and what you can get from it, you will end up depressed and defeated. But if you focus on the things that will echo in eternity, and if you discover the reason why you were placed at this moment in history, then you will never have any reason to want to try to escape this amazing adventure that we call life. ***Michael’s new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available in paperback and for the Kindle on Amazon.com.*** About the Author: My name is Michael Snyder and my brand new book entitled “Lost Prophecies Of The Future Of America” is now available on Amazon.com.  By purchasing the book you help to support the work that my wife and I are doing, and by giving it to others you help to multiply the impact that we are having on people all over the globe.  I have published thousands of articles on The Economic Collapse Blog, End Of The American Dream and The Most Important News, and the articles that I publish on those sites are republished on dozens of other prominent websites all over the globe.  I always freely and happily allow others to republish my articles on their own websites, but I also ask that they include this “About the Author” section with each article.  In addition to my new book, I have written four others that are available on Amazon.com including The Beginning Of The End, Get Prepared Now, and Living A Life That Really Matters.
