Protected: TODAY IS NOSTRADAMUS’ 111th BIRTHDAY Dec. 14, 1503 (as broadcast on the CBS Sunday News today), by Victor BainesDecember 14, 2014
In 1939, Hitler invaded the nation of Poland under the pretense of “rescuing the German people” who lived there from the danger posed to them by the Polish people In reality there was “no danger” posed to the German people living in Poland—but to Hitler–it was “the perfect lie” to use as the reason to take over Poland—starting World War II.
Now, in 2014, President Putin (of Russia) appears to have used “the same false logic” to invade the Crimea, that Adolf Hitler used in 1939 to invade Poland! And shame on him for doing so! Putin is no better or more moral that Hitler was, when it comes to invading another sovereign and independent nation that borders his own. No one in the international community of free nations is applauding Putin ( a former member of the KGB) for this illegal and immoral act! In today’s Russia, the aggressive modus operandi of the U.S.S.R. appears to be just as alive and well as it was from 1945 to 1988, in the glory days of Soviet aggression.
So what are the people of Ukraine going to do about this situation? Are the citizens of Crimea going to submit to an illegal election in order to vote on the idea of joining Russia? Well sure enough—they did. Now they have been annexed by Russia.
Nostradamus wrote about Russia. He referred to Russia by several names, but mostly as “Aquillon”—meaning “the Northern land”—in nineteen passages. He predicted the creation and the fall of socialism (in quatrain #4-32), the fall of the Berlin Wall, and Napoleon’s invasion of Russia. It is interesting to note that Hitler was also defeated by the Northern wind during World War II.
In quatrain # 2-89, Nostradamus predicted and era in time when “the two great masters (of the world–meaning the U.S.S.R and America?) would be friends, and their great power will be seen to grow”. In quatrain # 5-78, Nostradamus predicted that “the two do not remain allied for long” (followed by a war). If this is indeed a reference to Russia and America, is the time for Russia and the West to become adversaries again upon us now? Well–we will have to wait and see how things develop.
So will the Russians halt their military invasion of Europe in the Crimea, or will they be stupid enough to invade the rest of the Ukraine, or Moldavia, or even worse—Latvia or Estonia—which are members of NATO? NATO would certainly respond to a Russian invasion with a quick and harsh military counter-attack if the worse scenario were to occur! We still have plenty of A-10 Warthog Tank-busters in our air fleet. But would Putin really be that dumb to do so, hopefully not! Presently, the Russians have 50,000 troops mobilized on its border with Ukraine. Is this a psychological ploy and a show of force, or do the Russians have other intentions?
The Ukrainian military is rather weak and lacking in weapons and technology (as well as lacking in man power). However, they are mobilizing what military assets they have and building up their army and militia units in the same type of way that the Israeli Army did back in the late 1940’s when they gained their independence. If Ukraine was invaded, there is no doubt that they would put up a good fight against the Russians.
Hopefully this entire matter can be resolved through “prudent diplomacy”. It should be noted that in Nostradamus’ Epistle, it appears that Russia and America will be important and powerful allies again in the future, and that they will be united in a future war against nations in the East, therefore, lets hope that prudent thinking will prevail!
Well everyone–we made through the “phony ending of the world in 2012” that was so well hyped by the media and the internet. I could write more about that, but instead, I am moving on to life in 2013. Below are a few predictions for this new year.
THE ECONOMY: My prayer is that the economy improves this year resulting in higher levels of productive employment throughout the United States. Whether that will occur or not is up to variables far beyond my control. Most likely the domestic economy will continue to slowly deteriorate resulting in higher prices for consumer goods (like food, gasoline, etc..). Prices are high enough as they are and I can barely imagine them getting even higher. Jobs will continue to be exported to nations like China (and in other nations in Asia). Let’s hope that Fortune 500 companies (with the help of the Federal government) will enact measures to improve our economy.
TERRORISM: Iraq and Afghanistan will most likely see more acts of terrorism in 2013 (more so in Afghanistan than in Iraq). Domestic terrorism carried out by mentally deranged individuals with firearms will most likely be the new threat in America during 2013. How these types of acts can be stopped in the future is tricky business for authorities to figure out. A lot of work must be carried out to defend against them in the future. Hopefully the Department of Homeland Security will continue the good job of stopping what terror plots reveal themselves before the fact.
SYRIA: The Assad regime is one of the most evil governments on the planet. For four decades now (first the father and now his son) have generated a huge amount of terrorism upon the world, but now, they generate most of it upon their own people. An estimated 60,000 Syrians have died over the last two years in the Syrian revolution and more will die in 2013. If President Assad had a brain left in his head he would do something to end the blood shed. Or, he should gather up his money and family and go into exile, and leave his nation to be run by a new Syrian government that is friendly to the people. Could 2013 prove to be the year that the rebels over throw him? Only time will tell!
THE CLIMATE: Nostradamus penned many quatrians about droughts and famines. He stated that they would start in small areas and then grow larger across many regions. 2012 was a year of remarkable heat extremes and according to the New York Times–34,000 heat records were broken in 2012! Hey people–global warming is real and the problem appears to be getting worse every year. I predict that more heat records will be set in 2013!
THE MIDDLE EAST: Hezbollah got an intense pounding by Israel in 2012 after they launched missiles at them from the West Bank in 2012. I doubt their mistake will be repeated again in 2013. Will Iran continue to export drone aircraft to Hezbollah this year? Let’s hope not. If Iran continues their nuclear program without coming clean with the West–more problems will develop for them in 2013. I think the area in and around Yemen might be a region that continues to produce Jihadist leaders in the future. Turkey, which borders Syria (and is a NATO member) have fielded Patriot missiles as a shield against any offensive acts by the Syrian government.
HURRICANES: I think that hurricanes will continue to pound the USA in 2013 with the southern US as the region that will suffer the most. Nostradamus penned a quatrain about hurricanes hitting the New Orleans area, so, my prediction is based upon this quatrain being a trend in the future.
EARTHQUAKES: Small earthquakes happen all over the world every year. But I think that parts of Asia will see the worst of them this year (around the Pacific rim of fire). Chile could get the worst of them in South America this year. The New Madrid fault line (in parts of Tennessee, Arkansas, Illinois, and Missouri) will one day pose a major problem for the United States when it finally collapses–but let’s hope that it won’t occur in 2013!
GUN CONTROL: Gun Control will be a complex topic of debate this year. There are more guns than people in the United States. Both sides of the debate have good points to make, but in the long run, I think that sweeping measures will occur in this area in 2013.
Hello everyone, December 21st, 2012 is here and the world hasn’t ended yet! No world wide disasters have arrived or are heading our way ! Most of us are still alive–just like I thought we would be! Are you getting the idea that all of this talk about the world ending on December 21st, 2012–was nothing but a lot of hype, urban myth, propaganda, and overly wild speculation? That’s what I’ve been thinking for the last five years!
I have yet to be shown “any tangible evidence” that can truly suggest that the world was suppose to end on December 21st, of 2012! If anyone thinks that they truly have proof, or some type of evidence, or at least a rational theory of some type that conforms to “common sense” –that points to the world ending some time soon–please send it to me (I’d love to read it). I’d like to see how silly it is. Sorry–no end of the world.
You haven’t t seen “me” (Victor Baines) on any cable TV program saying that I thought the world will end in 2012. John Hogue, Vincent Bridges, Jay Wiedner and others were one’s who said that (not me)!
Then, there were all of the “so-called Mayan scholars” who proclaimed the world would end in 2012, as well as a bunch of paranoid survival gear merchants (and others) who jumped on the “gloom and doom” end of the world band-wagon. I guess everyone is free to state their personal opinions on things, but for the record, I’ve never thought that the world will end in 2012. Nostradamus didn’t write that either. It is a lie that he stated that!
Someone wrote in to remind us that Winter Solstice takes place today , Dec 21 2009. The astronomical event takes place when the Earth tilts farthest from the Sun and occurs at precisely 12:47 P.M. EST , or 17:47 UTC.
Besides being the shortest day of the year and the official start of winter, today also marks the astrological shift to the sign of Capricorn.
The word ” Solstice ” is derived from the latin phrase the ” Sun stands still ” and its history goes back to ancient times when special ceremonies and yule festivals were held.
