In recent days we have seen brazen moves to marginalize the alternative media using claims of “fake news”, and the so-called Russian hacking of emails. The publication of documents by Wikileaks and alternative news sources is being used to blame for the victory of Donald Trump in the US Presidential elections. According to the narrative now being peddled by those within the mainstream establishment, the Russians are responsible for having unduly swayed the population to vote for Trump instead of Hillary Clinton. It is because of Russian hacking and influence from the Kremlin through subversive means that Trump won the election in November. At least that is what they are telling the people. Ok say let’s try and put this into perspective. To begin with let’s assume that the Russian’s did hack into the DNC servers ( which I seriously doubt).
“What we have simply said are the facts,” Obama said. “Based on uniform intelligence assessments, the Russians were responsible for hacking the DNC, and as a consequence, it is important for us to review all elements of that and make sure we are preventing that kind of interference through cyberattacks in the future.”
“That shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Obama went on. “My hope is the President-elect is similarly going to be concerned that we don’t have foreign influence in our election process.” as reported by CNN
So has Obama himself ever tried to influence the election process in another country? Well yes he has. Not through hacking, but through other means. Here is what was stated in the Washington Times in July 2016
The State Department paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxpayers grants to an Israeli group that used the money to build a campaign to oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last year’s Israeli parliamentary elections, a congressional investigation concluded Tuesday.
Some $350,000 was sent to OneVoice, ostensibly to support the group’s efforts to back Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement negotiations. But OneVoice used the money to build a voter database, train activists and hire a political consulting firm with ties to President Obama’s campaign — all of which set the stage for an anti-Netanyahu campaign, the Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations said in a bipartisan staff report.
That is just one of many examples of how the Obama administration has either sought to, or succeeded in influencing elections or installing pro-Washington governments in foreign countries. How about his influence in the Ukraine for another example. Remember too when considering the US involvement in the setting up of the government in the Ukraine, how many Russians live there.
“And since Mr. Putin made this decision around Crimea and Ukraine — not because of some grand strategy, but essentially because he was caught off-balance by the protests in the Maidan and [Ukraine’s then-President Viktor] Yanukovych then fleeing after we had brokered a deal to transition power in Ukraine,” Obama said in an interview.
We could also look at examples in the Middle East of interference in the politics of nations by the Obama administration, but I think the two examples I have given above show that in many ways it’s the pot calling the kettle black when Obama or other Democrat’s speak against Putin’s so-called meddling in the US elections process. Also, it is widely known that animosity between Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel has been simmering below the surface for a long time. Obama’s attempts at unseating Netanyahu in the last election added fuel to that fire. However, this animosity is now taking on increased importance.
What I believe to be even worse than what has gone before, is the meddling in Middle East politics by way of the United Nations, and most particularly that of the potential dividing of the land of Israel by the Obama administration. A major step towards this occurred through UNSC resolution 2334 that was passed on December 23rd 2016. While the US officially abstained from voting on the resolution that declares East Jerusalem to be “Palestinian territory”, and recognizes no changes to the pre-1967 borders except “those agreed by the parties through negotiations”, there is ample evidence that the US was actually a driving force behind the resolution. I am ashamed to say ( as a New Zealander) that New Zealand also led the charge in that direction. US Secretary of State John Kerry visited New Zealand in November. Here is something that was reported in the New Zealand Herald:
One of the closed-door discussions between United States Secretary of State John Kerry and the New Zealand Government today was a potential resolution by the United Nations Security Council on a two-state solution for the Israel – Palestinian conflict.
After the talks, Foreign Minister Murray McCully even raised the possibility of the US or New Zealand sponsoring a resolution.
“It is a conversation we are engaged in deeply and we’ve spent some time talking to Secretary Kerry about where the US might go on this.
From the quote above by Murray McCully, it should be obvious that the US was involved in this process from the beginning, despite the denials. The leadership within Israel have made it very obvious that they believe this to be the case, as can be seen in the following statements from Netanyahu’s office.
Netanyahu spokesman David Keyes told CNN’s Dana Bash on Sunday, “We have iron-clad information, frankly, that the Obama administration really helped push this resolution and helped craft it, from sources internationally and sources in the Arab world.”
Not only did David Keyes make that statement, but Netanyahu himself said the following, as reported by CNN.
Netanyahu said Sunday of the UN resolution that “we have no doubt that the Obama administration initiated it, stood behind it, coordinated on the wording and demanded that it be passed.”
As a New Zealander I am certainly concerned at the role my own country has played in this process. Following the UN resolution The Israeli ambassador to New Zealand Itzhak Gerberg was recalled back to Israel. It has also been speculated and reported by Haaretz that Britain pulled the strings behind the scenes that led to the UN resolution.
According to Haaretz, in the hours before the resolution went forward, Netanyahu phoned New Zealand Foreign Minister Murray McCully, and warned him that going ahead with the resolution “will be a declaration of war.”
“It will rupture the relations and there will be consequences. We’ll recall our ambassador to Jerusalem,” Netanyahu is reported to have said.
It would seem pretty obvious to me that none of these politicians take serious the words of Zechariah chapter 12, Joel chapter 3 or Genesis Chapter 12. If they did then they would not be so eager to put their signatures to any resolutions that set to establish boundaries in Israel, or in any way work to part the land or divide Jerusalem.
And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. Zechariah 12:3
Interestingly New Zealand suffered a major earthquake (7.8 Richter) the day after John Kerry met with McCully. It would seem that at least part of that meeting dealt with the UN resolution 2334 that was introduced soon after. Could that have been a warning to New Zealand of coming judgement to our own land if we become involved in the dividing of the land of Israel? If so, it would seem that we have not listened. Michael Snyder wrote a great article on the judgements that have fallen on America when the US has sought to make moves against the land of Israel. Could it also be that New Zealand and all other countries who stand against Israel will also suffer calamities and judgement? Read Michael Snyder’s article : 10 Times That God Has Hit America With A Major Disaster After The U.S. Attempted To Divide The Land Of Israel.
I also find it very interesting that John Key, who was Prime Minister of New Zealand at the time that Kerry and McCully met in November, resigned as PM soon afterwards. John Key’s mother was an Austrian Jewish immigrant. Maybe knowing what was coming Mr Key got out ahead of time. Although he calls himself an atheist, perhaps even for Mr Key the thought of being involved in the dividing of Israel through the UN was a step further than he was prepared to take.
And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: Genesis 12:2-3
What is even more worrisome than UNSC Resolution 2334, Is the fact that this appears to have been only the first step in the dividing of the land of Israel, with more steps to follow. There is the distinct possibility that the UN will try to ram through further moves to recognize a Palestinian State and divide the land while Barack Obama is still in office over the next three weeks.
On Tuesday December 27th 2016 it was announced that US Secretary of State John Kerry will be making a speech Wednesday of next week outlining his vision for ending the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
U.S. State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Kerry’s speech would lay out next steps for a peaceful solution based on Israeli and Palestinian states side by side. Toner said the United States hoped the U.N. vote would serve as a “wake-up call” that settlements are a detriment to a two-state solution. Reuters
What we see here is Kerry laying the groundwork for a forced two-state solution, based not on negotiation, but the meddling in the politics of other countries by the United States through the United Nations. But the US is far from alone in this. “Representatives from approximately 70 countries will gather in France on January 15 for a conference to throw the international community’s weight behind a two-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, French officials said.” It has been billed as an Israeli- Palestinian peace summit, but representatives from neither Israel nor the Palestinians will be present at the summit.
Looking ahead to 2017, it would seem very likely that we will see tumultuous times, great changes in the Middle East, and regrettably also the likelihood of divine retribution for those nations that would seek to burden themselves with dividing Jerusalem and the Land Of Israel. The Russians were accused of meddling in the US political process. I believe those accusations were false. However, it is becoming increasingly obvious that the US and other countries are seeking to force their two-state solution in the Middle East without the agreement of those who will actually be a part of that forced “Two-State solution”. The irony of this is that Donald Trump, the President elect whom Obama claims to have been a benefactor of the supposed Russian interference, has himself stated that he doesn’t support the latest UN Resolution, or consider a Two-State solution to be of importance for his Presidency. Russia is one of the permanent members of the UNSC that voted in favour of Resolution 2334. So then Trump flies in the face of the Russians on that one. It hardly seems he is in agreement with the supposed Russian political interferers who Obama and others claimed influenced the election in his favour.
The vipers in the Obama are attempting to strike before their powers to do so are nullified by the new administration that is soon to be in place under Trump. Just how much damage will be done in the next three weeks while Obama is still in office remains to be seen. But the results will soon be obvious, and will remain so for a long time to come. The nations of the world are increasingly aligning themselves against Israel just as the Bible has foretold. This should be a serious wake up for us all as it surely shows the lateness of the hour in which we are living!
