The Apocalypse Chronicles TV Program – 2 Hours of Bible Prophecy – Updated Each Week
This week on the video program, James Lloyd continues the extraordinary look at the stunning phenomenon of Twin Timelines. In past programs, James has repeatedly cited the heavenly architecture revealed in Zechariah, where two parts are finite -- as the text says they will be "cut off and die." This week, using the episode where the Israelite men joined themselves to Baal peor and the women of Moab, James compares this to the recently revealed statistic showing two thirds of Christian men regularly view pornography -- but God is calling His Remnant to be the "third part" which He purifies. The media players on this page play the radio version of the program, and the media player that plays the video program is found HERE.
✪ CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL: WE WILL PROSECUTE EMPLOYERS WHO COOPERATE WITH ICE
Seditious Officials In Sanctuary State Threaten Employers With Legal Repercussions If They Assist Federal Immigration Officials
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra reports that there may be wide–spread federal immigration raids planned for California’s capital, Sacramento. Becerra warned employers they must comply with a new California law that limits their cooperation with immigration officials or face legal repercussions if they assist federal immigration officials in an impending crackdown in the sanctuary state. Becerra said, under the new state law, the Immigration Worker Protection Act, employers and businesses could face fines of up to $10,000 if they provide employee information to U.S. Immigration Customs.
∰ 57.9% OF ILLEGALS CAUGHT AT U.S.–MEXICO BORDER ARE NOT MEXICAN— THEY ARE FROM 111 OTHER COUNTRIES
20 Border Patrol Sectors: Include 9 Sectors Along Southwest Border with Mexico, 8 Along Northern Border With Canada, 3 Along Nation’s Coastal Border
Terence P. Jeffrey
Only 42.1% of the "deportable aliens" apprehended along the U.S.–Mexico border were citizens of Mexico, according to the U.S. Border Patrol. U.S. Customs and Border Protection report data collected include a significant majority—57.9%—came from 111 other countries. In fact, during fiscal year 2017, the Border Patrol apprehended deportable aliens along the U.S.–Mexico border who came from 84 countries that are not in the Americas. According to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spreadsheet, the Border Patrol apprehended a total of 310,531 “deportable aliens” in all 20 Border Patrol sectors. (These include 9 sectors along the Southwest Border with Mexico, 8 along the Northern Border with Canada, and 3 along the nation’s Coastal Border.) The top 3 countries that ranked after Mexico for having their citizens apprehended illegally entering the USA along the U.S.–Mexico border were from Central American countries. These were Guatemala (65,871), El Salvador (49,760) and Honduras (47,260), who ranked second, third and fourth. In fact, the Border Patrol apprehended more citizens of India in its 9 sectors along the U.S.–Mexico border than citizens of Brazil (2,621) or Ecuador (1,429), which ranked sixth and seventh for having illegally entered the USA were apprehended on the Southwest Border. The Peoples Republic of China ranked eighth, Nicaragua, which ranked ninth.
☠ DEA: MEXICO FLOODING U.S. WITH FENTANYL — DEATHS UP 540% IN 3 YEARS
The Largest Fentanyl Seizure In U.S. History — Enough To Kill 32 Million People
Chris Menahan | Information Liberation
Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid 50 to 100 times stronger than heroin the "number one killer drug" in America. According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, nearly all of the fentanyl in America is from Mexico. DEA agents say recent arrests reflect an emerging pattern, as Mexican trafficking groups attempt to turn New York City into their Northeast distribution hub. They operate with quasi–corporate sophistication and an inconspicuous, transient presence, sending sales teams to deliver staggering quantities of drugs and then quietly disappear. This year, narcotics agents have seized more than 350 pounds of pure fentanyl in New York City, 10 times as much as they did in 2016. A calculated business decision appears to be behind the boom. The cartels realize that fentanyl is much more profitable than heroin, said James Hunt, head of the DEA’s New York Division.
∑ ATTORNEY CLAIMS DACA REQUIREMENTS ABUSED BY OBAMA
DACA Required Graduation From High School Or GED Certificate, No Felony Convictions Nor Significant Misdemeanor
Hans von Spakovksy
Writing in The Daily Signal, American attorney Hans von Spakovksy (whose parents were immigrants) points out some things about DACA and “Dreamers.” Claims that Dreamers were brought here as children and have never known another country or customs may be true of a small portion of the DACA population, but it is not true of all who received amnesty by virtue of having come to the U.S. before their 16th birthday and being under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012. DACA required enrollment in school, graduation from high school, a GED certificate, or honorable discharge from the military; no conviction for a felony or significant misdemeanor; and not posing a threat to national security or public safety. However, the Obama administration routinely waived the education requirement as long as the alien was enrolled in some kind of program. Less than half of DACA beneficiaries have a high school education despite the fact that a majority of them are adults.
Documents obtained by Judicial Watch suggest that background checks for DACA applicants only vetted a randomly–selected few and because DACA only excluded individuals for convictions, an illegal alien might have committed multiple crimes of which he or she was not convicted and would still be eligible.
English fluency was not a DACA requirement and in fact, the original application asked if the form had been read to applicants in a language in which they were fluent, which doesn’t comport with the argument that Dreamers are children who don’t speak the language of their native countries. Studies estimate that a quarter of the DACA–eligible population is functionally illiterate and another 46% have only ‘basic’ English ability. It thus seems that a high percentage of DACA beneficiaries have serious limitations in their education, experience, and English fluency that negatively affect their ability to function here.
Of the 33 million legal immigrants admitted to this country since 1982, 60% came by “chain migration,” where a legal immigrant sponsors others for entry. The average immigrant has sponsored 3.45 others but it may be higher for DACA beneficiaries since most were from Mexico and on average they sponsor 6.38 others. Providing amnesty attracts more illegal aliens and will not reduce enforcement problems along our borders and interior. Allowing illegal aliens to enter and remain here must be discouraged. Until that is done, it is unwise, unfair, and illegal to consider a DACA–type bill or amnesty for those who are not here legally.
♖ IT WORKS! US SPECIAL FORCES UNABLE TO CONQUER TRUMP WALL
Jackhammers, Saws, Torches, Climbing Devices No Match For Barrier Prototypes
US Special Forces were unable to conquer border wall prototypes in San Diego, a promising sign a physical barrier will deter criminals. After weeks of attempts, Florida–based members of the elite military group as well as Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents couldn’t breach or scale the 8 models designed to meet President Trump’s calls for a "big, beautiful" wall. "We’ve put the Special Forces to go up against this wall and they can’t defeat this wall. If the Special Forces can’t defeat the wall, the criminal cartels are not gonna defeat the wall either," said president of the National Border Patrol Council Brandon Judd. The prototypes, 4 made of concrete and 4 built from other materials, were subjected to strenuous tests for 3 weeks, including from jackhammers, saws, torches and other tools. The 30–foot height of the structures also presented a deadly challenge for testers. The highly trained testers scaled 16 to 20 feet unassisted but needed help after that, said the official who described the assaults on the wall prototypes. Testers also expressed safety concerns about getting down from 30 feet. "We want to be able to see the threats that are coming up to the wall. If we can see that, then we can defend against it,"
≴ HOMELAND SECURITY ANNOUNCES MOVE TO EXPEDITE THE WALL
Border Wall Funding In Exchange for DACA Immigration Deal
Trump used the wall as a bargaining chip ahead of the spending bill debate last week which led to a government shutdown, calling for border wall funding in exchange for any DACA immigration deal. On Monday the Department of Homeland Security announced they were waiving over 30 environmental rules in New Mexico to expedite the wall’s construction. The administration is still working to secure additional funding for the project, which would run from Texas through California where geographical features do not provide natural barriers.
☮ MARIJUANA LEGALIZATION MAY REDUCE MEXICAN DRUG CRIME, INCREASE TAX REVENUE
Border States Enjoyed Decline In Cartel Crime, While Nationwide Legalization May Mean Billions
Charles Fain Lehman | Free Beacon
Southwestern border states that legalize medical marijuana see a notable decline in violent crime rates, especially in border counties and as compared against states that do not, a recently released study concluded. The study, published in the journal of the Royal Economic Society, is an effort to provide empirical evidence for the claim that the legalization of medical marijuana reduces the violent activity of Mexican drug trafficking organizations, which are overwhelmingly the suppliers of marijuana in America. A drop in violence, the study’s authors argue, would be because legal marijuana regimes allow local farmers to enter the market, in turn cutting the profits for Mexican drug traffickers. Violence is expensive, they note, and so a cut in profits should drive down violence as traffickers have less incentive to use violent force to keep control of customers and territory.
℞ NEW YORK AREA FENTANYL LINKED TO MEXICO’S SINALOA CARTEL
Cartel Leader, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, Awaits Trial In Lower Manhattan
According to DEA intelligence gleaned from wiretaps, about 80% of the fentanyl seized in the New York area appears to be linked to Mexico’s Sinaloa cartel. The organization remains North America’s dominant trafficking group, even as its leader, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, awaits trial in a maximum–security jail in Lower Manhattan. The Sinaloa cartel is just one of many Mexican cartels. The Los Angeles Times’ liberal writer Sam Quinones documented in his book "Dreamland" how all the heroin in America is also coming from Mexico. Earlier this year, Mexico’s Former Secretary of Foreign Affairs Jorge Castañeda Gutman suggested Mexico should stop "cooperating" with the US by keeping their drugs out of America because Donald Trump is ending our 2 countries "friendly relationship." We need a wall and we need it now.
