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?

Pentagon makes Pokemon a No-Go

Perhaps the fears that Pokemon Go's use of Google maps to surveil players and where they travel is not too far fetched because a memo released from July 19 shows that the Pentagon has ordered its employees to desist from downloading the APP to their phones out of fear that the game could be used by foreign intelligence services to spy on them.


An anonymous source within the Pentagon released the contents of the memo to the Washington Post, which declared that the game "poses a potential a security risk to secure and sensitive facilities.”

The U.S. government just threw another log on the fire, adding to the blaze of paranoia it’s been generating around the nation’s newest threat — foreign cyber attacks. In a memo sent out July 19, Pentagon employees were told to keep Pokemon Go off their phones to prevent spying by foreign countries. 
According the The Washington Times, an anonymous source told Inside the Ring the memorandum “warned all officials and defense contractors that playing Pokemon Go, the hugely popular Japanese video game, poses a potential a security risk to secure and sensitive facilities.” 
The hugely popular augmented reality game, an app downloaded and played on smartphones, took the world by storm in the beginning of July as millions scrambled to capture little digital creatures within days of its launch. According to the Pentagon’s source, security concerns quickly arose: 
“Pokemon Go uses the Global Positioning System satellite network for maps of areas around the handheld mobile devices that utilize the application. Pentagon security officials are concerned the data obtained playing the game could provide pinpoint accuracy on the locations of rooms and other sensitive facilities where secrets are stored. The game also could provide personal data on Pentagon officials with access to secrets, information that could be used in cyber attacks or spying recruitment attempts. Pokemon Go employs Google Maps to place users within a real-world city location and then shows a figure of the game player on the map.” - Anti-media.org
For the United States, spying is not allowed unless it is THEM doing the surveillance on others.

Playing Pokemon Go can be bad for one's health

Each day it seems there are new stories of absurdity being propagated from the mindless zombies all over the world playing Pokemon Go.  And whether it is a group of virtual Pokemon chasers interrupting a funeral service in Australia, or ones continuously trespassing in people's yards, this addicting game can take players to places that can actually put their lives in danger.

And sadly for one young athlete in San Francisco, it did just that.

A 20-year-old man was shot and killed while playing "Pokemon Go" at a San Francisco park Saturday night, according to authorities. 
Calvin Riley and a friend were playing the game in the Fisherman's Wharf area, along San Francisco's waterfront, when Riley was shot, AP reported.  
According to family and friends, Riley was randomly targeted, and there was no confrontation before the attack, KGO-TV reported.  
"There was nothing said back and forth,” family friend John Kirby told KGO-TV.  "It was just senseless, just came up and shot in the back and ran away for nothing." 
According to Kirby, Riley and his friend saw someone watching them from the top of a hill, but they were playing the game, so they were absorbed in their cellphones. 
Calvin was ahead of his friend, according to Riley, who said the friend witnessed the end of the attack. 
“Then when the friend came around a corner he heard a gunshot, saw his friend fall, and whoever did it ran away and possibly got into a car," Kirby told KGO-TV said. - USA Today
Perhaps we shouldn't be surprised that Americans no longer have any form of tactical awareness of their surroundings, considering when was the last time you saw someone actually look both ways before crossing a road... whether they were playing Pokemon Go or not.

Russia continues to seek to monetize Pokemon Go fad by offering guided safari's to hunt Pokemon's

Despite the fact that government authorities in Russia still haven't decided whether or not to allow the Pokemon Go application to be available inside their borders, it has not stopped entrepreneurial individuals and businesses from finding ways to monetize on the fad.  And while last week Sberbank created a new line of insurance to protect players from accidents they may incur while chasing down virtual Pokemon pets blindlessly on their Smartphones, this week a Russian travel agency is now planning to offer guided safari's to assist and aid players in hunting down Pokemon.

Russia’s Association of Tour Operators (ATOR) on Tuesday expressed readiness to organize individual travel tours for fans of the hit mobile game Pokemon Go, converting the newest craze into cash. 
The augmented-reality game took the world by the storm after its release in early July. It requires a player to catch "pocket monsters," which appear on the screen if the user is in the right location. A total of 151 types of Pokemons are "running wild around the world" but six particularly rare ones have not yet been spotted. 
"Russian operators have not<…> received requests to send fans on monster hunts yet. But we are ready to seize the opportunity created by this Pokemon-mania and send fans on individual tours," ATOR said in a statement. - Sputnik News

Pokemon Go: One of the best investments in history is about an application that produces nothing

You know that your society has reached the point of sheer affluence when one of the best performing investments in history comes from the creation of a virtual application that produces nothing of real value.

Today, more people could tell you what Kanye West's secret recording of a conversation with Taylor Swift was about than can name the new vice-presidential candidate under Donald Trump.  This is because the synergies that combined the fear of starvation with the ambition to succeed are no longer prevalent in our society, and time better spent on producing tangible goods and services has been replaced with the drive to simply be entertained.

Following the release of the newest global fad Pokemon Go, the Japanese company that had been wallowing in mediocrity for close to a decade suddenly skyrocketed to an all-time record market cap, and in the course of 10 days became one of the greatest investments in history.

All because of a virtual application that turns human beings into programmed zombies.

And when it comes to those who stand to profit from said Pokemon mania, nobody is a bigger winner than Nintendo which less than two years ago became a part-owner of Niantic creator Pokemon Go. 
We only have to look at the move in the stock price of Nintendo, which in just the past two weeks has more than doubled its market cap to over $42 billion, gaining some $22 billion in market cap. 
To calculate the return, let's generously assume that Nintendo was responsible for the entire $20mm initial investment (it was probably less). What a simple XIRR analysis reveals, is that the $22 billion boost in market cap relative to the $20 million initial investment is nothing short of a mindblowing 1,550,000% IRR, or a cash on cash return of 110,000% in less than one year. - Zerohedge

So in the near future when robots take over the jobs of an expected 15 million American workers, don't fret!  Because it will give them even more time to spend chasing around virtual pets on our nation's highways, over mountainous cliffs, and even along the edge of Hoover Dam.

Russian bank monetizes on Pokemon Go fad as it prepares to offer accident insurance

The Pokemon Go phenomenon is one where average people are turning into the equivalent of Black Friday zombies, and quickly losing sight of their surroundings in the attempt to capture virtual creatures on their smartphones.

In the week or so that the game has been active, there are numerous reports of players being hit by cars on roads and freeways, being arrested for trespassing on the private and business property, and some even finding themselves molested by thieves and muggers as these incidents are just a few of the consequences that playing the game has created to put individuals in harm's way.
And while the game has become a global experience to millions of people, Russia is mulling over placing a ban on the Pokemon Go app due to its ability to co-opt one's Google account and personal information.  But until that occurs one bank there is seeing an opportunity to monetize on the Pokemon craze, and is offering insurance for people who might find themselves injured or worse while chasing a virtual Pokemon up and down the street.
Pokémon Go players in Russia are being offered free insurance in the event of injury while using the popular app. The country's biggest bank Sberbank is giving clients 50,000 rubles (about $800) worth of cover, Kommersant daily reports. 
“Given the fact that some countries have reported injuries of players who were catching Pokémon, we have developed a special product that will be free for players,” said the CEO of Sberbank Life Insurance Maksim Chernin. 
Compensation will depend on the severity of the client’s injury. Insurance cards will be given out for free, according to the media. Pokémon Go users will just have to visit a landing page and fill in the nickname, real name, birthday, location and e-mail. 
“It is also important for us that the project will improve financial literacy, as the younger generation will be able to learn about insurance instruments while playing the game,”Chernin added. - Russia Today
