The Israel Deception

Is the return of Israel in the 20th century truly a work of God, or is it a result of a cosmic chess move to deceive the elect by the adversary?

Tens of thousands of New Yorkers homeless as winter storms approach

Just as Napolean and Hitler learned the hard way that you do not attack Russia in late summer or fall, so too is New York, New Jersey, and many other East Coast states in the wake of hurricane Sandy learning that dealing with reconstruction on the precipice of winter is a harrowing experience.  This is what Governor Cuomo and tens of thousands in New York City are realizing when a new report from Nov. 5 shows that being homeless when winter storms are coming to your city, is the catalyst for intense misery.


First the flood, now the freeze (and the lack of fuel and gas and heating just making it much worse). And for tens of thousands of residents of New York and New Jersey this means that as many as 40,000 will need to find alternative housing, especially ahead of Wednesday when a Nor'easter formation is expected to hit the Tristate area and bring even more freezing rain and cold to the region. From Reuters: "Tens of thousands of people affected by superstorm Sandy could soon need housing as cold weather descends on the state of New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Sunday. Cuomo, in a televised press conference nearly a week after the storm hit the U.S. East Coast, said the fuel shortages are improving but problems will persist for "a number of days."" Elsewhere, and also from Reuters: "Victims of superstorm Sandy on the U.S. East Coast struggled against the cold early on Sunday amid fuel shortages and power outages even as officials fretted about getting voters displaced by the storm to polling stations for Tuesday's presidential election. Overnight, near-freezing temperatures gripped the U.S. northeast. At least two more victims were found in New Jersey, one dead of hypothermia, as the overall death toll from one of worst storms in U.S. history climbed to at least 112. - Zerohedge

Unfortunately, New York is one of the last places where people are willing to open their doors to strangers, and where strangers are just as likely to steal from you during a crisis.  Besides the massive reports of looting in the aftermath of the hurricane, even waitng for hours in a line to get gasoline has forced police to monitor stations due to the fights and potential theft of unprepared citizens.

New York City is a stark opposition to Joplin, Missouri, where neighboring towns welcomes homesless families in after the devasting tornado of 2011.  However, in NYC, it's an ideology of every man for himself, and the fears are the government is unable to deal with the massive amount of numbers homeless, and the people themselves do not want to take the risk of sheltering strangers for long periods of time.

The Lost Boys: foreclosures have evicted 2.3 million children with more on the way

Most economic analysts point to the millions of families that have been uprooted through foreclosure since the bursting of the Housing bubble in 2008, but very few have looked into the impacts of the children who have seen their lives change, and what the future holds for them as they continue to grow up.


Five years into the foreclosure crisis, many American families with children continue to lose their homes through foreclosure. An estimated 2.3 million children in single-family homes have already lost their homes to foreclosure, and even more - 3.0 million children - are at serious risk of losing their homes in the future. Another three million or so children may face eviction from rental properties that undergo foreclosure, suggesting that more than 8 million children are directly affected by the ongoing foreclosure crisis (see Figure 1). As single-family and rental properties continue to enter foreclosure, children face not just the loss of their homes, but also the risk of losing friends and falling behind academically if they are forced to switch neighborhoods and schools.

Children Affected by Foreclosures
Children are the often invisible victims of the foreclosure crisis. Mortgage records do not tell how many children are in owner-occupied homes, and it is even harder to estimate the number of children in rental properties. Yet foreclosure affects not just the homeowner or landlord, but also the children living in the foreclosed properties. This brief combines state-by-state estimates on foreclosures with Census Bureau data on the living arrangements of families with children to generate estimates of the numbers of children affected by the mortgage crisis. It also synthesizes research bearing on the negative effects of foreclosure on children’s schooling and overall well-being and outlines some possible policy responses. -

"If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered."

Poor in America growing as government forgets those who lost jobs and homes

There has always been homeless in America.  From the mentally ill and unstable, to military veterans who could not cope with society upon their return, to those who simply chose to not live according to the regimented structure of the economic paradigm.

In a new expose by the BBC on February 13th, the media takes a look at the poor in America, and how many are simply victims of the economic destruction that has taken place since the credit crisis, bursting of the housing bubble, and the sheer lack of opportunities in the once wealthiest nation in history.
