Ethiopian Face of The Day: Richard Quest

Posted by addisethiopia on March 24, 2017

The Man Behind Ethiopia’s First Botanic Garden

I just read this story about the good Ethiopian botanical scientist, and twon things amused immediately:

1. Ethiopia’s 1st botanic garden? What about ‘Addis’ Bihere Tsige, which is as botanical as any Eurpean botanic garden? Do gardens have to their plants botanical names to qualify for gardens? Anyways, Prof. Sebsebe’s plan is a very good plan, as Ethioipia needs more gardens, parks and forests.

The report reads like this:

A leading Ethiopian botanical scientist plans to open Ethiopia’s first botanic garden. Professor Sebsebe Demissew says the continent needs people with the skills to advance plant research. The award-winning botanist has been explaining to us what the benefits of plants are to local people.

Source

2. The 2nd thing that caught my attention is the striking resemblance I noticed between Professor Sebsebe and CNN weirdo Richard Quest. Exactly 9 years ago (21 Apr 2008) CNN’s most high-profile faces, Richard Quest was busted in New York’s Central Park with some drugs in his pocket, a rope around his neck that was tied to his genitals, and a sex toy in his boot, law-enforcement sources said. It wasn’t immediately clear what the rope was for. Madre mía! In case Mr. Quest still means business, and is fooling around with this sort of things, he should immediately go into rehab in one of the next botanic gardens of Professor Sebsebe.

Probably The Most Disgraceful Day In American Politics

Posted by addisethiopia on March 20, 2017

The satanic left-liberal establishment must have a great deal of fear for its incursions these days. A disgrace what we were enable to witness at Capitol Hill, during the so-called, „Russia Intelligence Hearing„ amazing, they don’t even call the president with President Trump, just „Mr. Trump„ – this extraordinary,woow!

Probably the most disgraceful day in American politics ever. For whatever reason the twisted left-liberals and their wicked medias keep carrying the same tired Russian narrative. Russia, Russsia, Russssssia!Adolf Hitler’s Propaganda Minister said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.

I’ve never ever seen anything like it. The „Right Wing„Geert Wilders lost the Netherlands election last week, but, why don’t we see the sort of backlash from conservatives like we witness from the left in US of A? The whole thing is just weird in the overall context of things. I have never seen such a tiresome drama from American politicians and the media, never! Everything is just magic smoking monkey theater! Indeed, those angry and bitter demons don’t like losing, and they don’t seem to give up until moon-god-hating, President Trump is crucified.

World Cities With The Best Quality Of Life In The World 2017

Posted by addisethiopia on March 20, 2017

Every year Mercer, one of the world’s largest HR consultancy firms, releases its Quality of Living Index, which looks at which cities provide the best quality of life.

The ranking is one of the most comprehensive of its kind and is carried out annually to help multinational companies and other employers to compensate employees fairly when placing them on international assignments, according to Mercer.

London and New York do not make it anywhere near the top of the list.

Looking at 450 cities across the world, Mercer takes into account the following metrics to judge which cities made the list for the best quality of life:

  • Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement)
  • Economic environment (currency-exchange regulations, banking services)
  • Socio-cultural environment (media availability and censorship, limitations on personal freedom)
  • Medical and health considerations (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution)
  • Schools and education (standards and availability of international schools)
  • Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transportation, traffic congestion)
  • Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure)
  • Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars)
  • Housing (rental housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services)
  • Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters)

Mercer made a list of 230 countries

Vienna tops Mercer’s 19th quality of living ranking

Infrastructure is pivotal in determining quality of living for expats and cities

Vienna ranks highest for quality of living for the 8th year in a row

Singapore ranks first for city infrastructure. UK’s highest ranked city, London, ranks 40th for quality of living, 6th for infrastructure

Despite increased political and financial volatility in Europe, many of its cities offer the world’s highest quality of living and remain attractive destinations for expanding business operations and sending expatriates on assignment, according to Mercer’s 19th annual Quality of Living survey. City infrastructure, ranked separately this year, plays an important role when multinationals decide where to establish locations abroad and send expatriate workers. Easy access to transportation, reliable electricity, and drinkable water are all important considerations when determining hardship allowances based on differences between a given assignee’s home and host locations.

Economic instability, social unrest, and growing political upheaval all add to the complex challenge multinational companies face when analysing quality of living for their expatriate workforce,” said Ilya Bonic, senior partner and president of Mercer’s Career business. “For multinationals and governments it is vital to have quality of living information that is accurate, detailed, and reliable. It not only enables these employers to compensate employees appropriately, but it also provides a planning benchmark and insights into the often-sensitive operational environment that surrounds their workforce.

In uncertain times, organisations that plan to establish themselves and send staff to a new location should ensure they get a complete picture of the city, including its viability as a business location and its attractiveness to key talent,” Mr Bonic added.

Vienna occupies first place for overall quality of living for the 8th year running, with the rest of the top-ten list mostly filled by European cities: Zurich is in second place, with Munich (4), Dusseldorf (6), Frankfurt (7), Geneva (8), Copenhagen (9), and Basel, a newcomer to the list, in 10th place. The only non-European cities in the top ten are Auckland (3) and Vancouver (5). The highest ranking cities in Asia and Latin America are Singapore (25) and Montevideo (79), respectively.

Mercer’s survey also includes a city infrastructure ranking that assesses each city’s supply of electricity, drinking water, telephone and mail services, and public transportation as well as traffic congestion and the range of international flights available from local airports. Singapore tops the city infrastructure ranking, followed by Frankfurt and Munich both in 2nd place. Baghdad (230) and Port au Prince (231) rank last for city infrastructure.

Mercer’s authoritative survey is one of the world’s most comprehensive and is conducted annually to enable multinational companies and other organisations to compensate employees fairly when placing them on international assignments. In addition to valuable data, Mercer’s Quality of Living surveys provide hardship premium recommendations for over 450 cities throughout the world; this year’s ranking includes 231 of these cities.

The success of foreign assignments is influenced by issues such as ease of travel and communication, sanitation standards, personal safety, and access to public services,” said Slagin Parakatil, Principal at Mercer and responsible for its quality of living research. “Multinational companies need accurate and timely information to help calculate fair and consistent expatriate compensation – a real challenge in locations with a compromised quality of living.”

Mr Parakatil added, “A city’s infrastructure, or rather the lack thereof, can considerably affect the quality of living that expatriates and their families experience on a daily basis. Access to a variety of transport options, being connected locally and internationally, and access to electricity and drinkable water are among the essential needs of expatriates arriving in a new location on assignment. A well-developed infrastructure can also be a key competitive advantage for cities and municipalities trying to attract multinational companies, talent, and foreign investments.” 

Europe

Even with political and economic turbulence, Western European cities continue to enjoy some of the highest quality of living worldwide. Still in the top spot, Vienna is followed by Zurich (2), Munich (4), Dusseldorf (6), Frankfurt (7), Geneva (8), Copenhagen (9), and a newcomer to the list, Basel (10). In 69th place, Prague is the highest ranking city in Central and Eastern Europe, followed by Ljubljana (76) and Budapest (78). Most European cities remained stable in the ranking, with the exception of Brussels (27), dropping six places because of terrorism-related security issues, and Rome (57), down four places due to its waste-removal issues. Finally, Istanbul fell from 122nd to 133rd place as a result of the severe political turmoil in Turkey during the past year. The lowest ranking cities in Europe are St. Petersburg and Tirana (both ranked 176), along with Minsk (189).

Western European cities also hold most of the top ten places in the city infrastructure ranking with Frankfurt and Munich jointly ranking 2nd worldwide, followed by Copenhagen (4) and Dusseldorf (5). London is in 6th place, and Hamburg and Zurich both rank 9th. Ranking lowest across Europe are Sarajevo (171) and Tirana (188).

Cities that rank high in the city infrastructure list provide a combination of top-notch local and international airport facilities, varied and extended coverage through their local transportation networks, and innovative solutions such as smart technology and alternative energy,” said Mr Parakatil. “Most cities now align variety, reliability, technology, and sustainability when designing infrastructure for the future.”

Americas

In North America, Canadian cities take the top positions in the ranking. Vancouver (5) is again the region’s highest ranking city for quality of living. Toronto and Ottawa follow in 16th and 18th place respectively, whereas San Francisco (29) is the highest ranking US city, followed by Boston (35), Honolulu (36), New York (44), and Seattle (45). High crime rates in Los Angeles (58) and Chicago (47) resulted in these cities dropping nine and four places respectively. Monterrey (110) is the highest ranking city in Mexico, while the country’s capital, Mexico City, stands in 128th position. In South America, Montevideo (79) ranks highest for quality of living, followed by Buenos Aires (93) and Santiago (95). La Paz (157) and Caracas (189) are the lowest ranking cities in the region.

For city infrastructure, Vancouver (in 9th place) also ranks highest in the region. It is followed by Atlanta and Montreal, tied in 14th place. Overall, the infrastructure of cities in Canada and the United States is of a high standard, including the airport and bus connectivity, the availability of clean drinking water, and the reliability of electricity supplies. Traffic congestion is a concern in cities throughout the whole region. Tegucigalpa (208) and Port-au-Prince (231) have the lowest scores for city infrastructure in North America. In 84th place, Santiago is the highest ranking South American city for infrastructure; La Paz (168) is the lowest.

Asia-Pacific

Singapore (25) remains the highest ranking city in the Asia-Pacific region, where there is great disparity in quality of living; Dushanbe (215) in Tajikistan ranks lowest. In Southeast Asia, Kuala Lumpur (86) follows Singapore; other key cities include Bangkok (131), Manila (135), and Jakarta (143). Five Japanese cities top the ranking for East Asia: Tokyo (47), Kobe (50), Yokohama (51), Osaka (60), and Nagoya (63). Other notable cities in Asia include Hong Kong (71), Seoul (76), Taipei (85), Shanghai (102), and Beijing (119). There is also considerable regional variation in the city infrastructure ranking. The highest-ranked city is Singapore (1), whereas Dhaka (214) is near the bottom of the list.

New Zealand and Australia continue to rank highly in quality of living: Auckland (3), Sydney (10), Wellington (15), and Melbourne (16) all remain in the top 20. However, when ranked for infrastructure, only Sydney (8) makes the top ten, with Perth (32), Melbourne (34), and Brisbane (37) also ranking well for infrastructure in Oceania. By and large, cities in Oceania enjoy good quality of living, though criteria such as airport connectivity and traffic congestion are among the factors that see them ranked lower in terms of city infrastructure.

Middle East and Africa

Dubai (74) continues to rank highest for quality of living across Africa and the Middle East, rising one position in this year’s ranking, followed closely by Abu Dhabi (79), which climbed three spots. Sana’a (229) in Yemen, Bangui (230) in the Central African Republic, and Baghdad (231) in Iraq are the region’s three lowest-ranked cities for quality of living.

Dubai also ranks highest for infrastructure in 51st place. Only five other cities in this region make the top 100, including Tel Aviv (56), Abu Dhabi (67), Port Louis (94), Muscat (97), and upcoming host of the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Doha in Qatar, which ranks 96th for infrastructure. Cities in African and Middle Eastern countries dominate the bottom half of the table for infrastructure, with Brazzaville (228) in the Republic of the Congo, Sana’a (229), and Baghdad (230) ranking the lowest.

Notes to Editors

Mercer produces worldwide quality-of-living rankings annually from its Worldwide Quality of Living Surveys. Individual reports are produced for each city surveyed. Moreover, comparative quality-of-living indexes between a base city and host city are available, as are multiple-city comparisons. Details are available from Mercer Client Services in Warsaw, at +48 22 434 5383 or at http://www.mercer.com/qualityofliving.

The data was largely analysed between September and November 2016, and it will be updated regularly to account for changing circumstances. In particular, the assessments will be revised to reflect significant political, economic, and environmental developments.The list of rankings is provided to media for reference, and should not be published in full. The top 10 and bottom 10 cities in either list may be reproduced in a table.

The information and data obtained through the Quality of Living reports are for information purposes only and are intended for use by multinational organisations, government agencies, and municipalities. They are not designed or intended for use as the basis for foreign investment or tourism. In no event will Mercer be liable for any decision made or action taken in reliance of the results obtained through the use of, or the information or data contained in, the reports. While the reports have been prepared based upon sources, information, and systems believed to be reliable and accurate, they are provided on an “as-is” basis, and Mercer accepts no responsibility/liability for the validity/accuracy (or otherwise) of the resources/data used to compile the reports. Mercer and its affiliates make no representations or warranties with respect to the reports, and disclaim all express, implied and statutory warranties of any kind, including, representations and implied warranties of quality, accuracy, timeliness, completeness, merchantability, and fitness for a particular purpose.

Expatriates in Difficult Locations: Determining Appropriate Allowances and Incentives

Companies need to determine expatriate compensation packages rationally, consistently, and systematically using reliable data. Providing incentives to reward and recognise the effort that employees and their families make when taking on international assignments remains a typical practice, particularly for difficult locations.

Two common incentives include a quality-of-living allowance and a mobility premium:

§ A quality-of-living or “hardship” allowance compensates for a decrease in the quality of living between home and host locations.

§ A mobility premium simply compensates for the inconvenience of being uprooted and having to work in another country.

A quality-of-living allowance is typically location-related, while a mobility premium is usually independent of the host location. Some multinational companies combine these premiums, but the vast majority provides them separately.

Quality of Living: City Benchmarking

Mercer also helps municipalities to assess factors that can improve their quality of living rankings. In a global environment, employers have many choices about where to deploy their mobile employees and set up new business. A city’s quality of living can be an important variable for employers to consider.

Leaders in many cities want to understand the specific factors that affect their residents’ quality of living and address those issues that lower a city’s overall quality-of-living ranking. Mercer advises municipalities by using a holistic approach that addresses the goals of progressing towards excellence and attracting both multinational companies and globally mobile talent by improving the elements that are measured in its Quality of Living survey.

Mercer Hardship Allowance Recommendations

Mercer evaluates local living conditions in more than 450 cities surveyed worldwide. Living conditions are analysed according to 39 factors, grouped in 10 categories:

1. Political and social environment (political stability, crime, law enforcement, etc.).

2. Economic environment (currency exchange regulations, banking services).

3. Socio-cultural environment (media availability and censorship, limitations on personal freedom).

4. Medical and health considerations (medical supplies and services, infectious diseases, sewage, waste disposal, air pollution, etc.).

5. Schools and education (standards and availability of international schools).

6. Public services and transportation (electricity, water, public transportation, traffic congestion, etc.).

7. Recreation (restaurants, theatres, cinemas, sports and leisure, etc.).

8. Consumer goods (availability of food/daily consumption items, cars, etc.).

9. Housing (rental housing, household appliances, furniture, maintenance services).

10. Natural environment (climate, record of natural disasters).

The scores attributed to each factor, which are weighted to reflect their importance to expatriates, permit objective city-to-city comparisons. The result is a quality of living index that compares relative differences between any two locations evaluated. For the indices to be used effectively, Mercer has created a grid that enables users to link the resulting index to a quality of living allowance amount by recommending a percentage value in relation to the index.

My Note: I’m certain Addis Abeba would land in the top 10, if they took into account the metrics of Spiritual Life, Air Quality (Altitude + Sun, Light), Food Quality (Organic vs. Chemicals). Two days ago, I learned that a remote tribe living deep in the Amazon (Bolivia) is found to have the healthiest arteries ever studied. Does this tell us about quality of life? Do “rich” Northern Nations have enough money to paint their skies this BLUE?

The Beastly Sick Men From Turkey Elevated To Level Of Outcast In Europe

Posted by addisethiopia on March 18, 2017

Accusing & Discouraging — with empty Pride

Jesus was tempted in the desert. And Lent is a time of temptation, a time of desert. We expect provocations, attacks, insults more temptation in this time. The devil likes nothing more than to make you as miserable as he is. And he knows that if you are feeling discouraged you are likely to be less cooperative with God’s grace But God does not allow anything that he cannot use for good; he can even use temptation and attacks from the devil for our conversion, transformation and holiness.

It was pride that changed angels into devils; it is humility that makes men as angels. Saint Augustine

Comparing oneself favorably to others. is exactly what the devil wants. The devil wants you to think you are better than other people so that you could grow in pride.

The army of demons’ is on loose

Isn’t it interesting to see things unfolding fast before our very own eyes? Look how frequently the Antichrist Turkish leaders are forced to open their mouths in pride and embarrassment so that we could be able learn about their satanic thoughts and intentions. Every day, it seems we see one more symptom, one more example, of how evil is moving in the world. But, children of Jesus Christ know that Satan has a short time to reign.

To an Antichrist loving world, it is okay for the Muslim Gog of Turkey to randomly spew insults, put-downs and anti christian slurs. No wonder we don’t see harsh retaliatory actions against Turkey from the lost liberal world

The beast was allowed to speak arrogant and insulting things. It was given authority to act for 42 months.[Revelation 13:5]

Let’s see what Satan Erdogan and  his mutant army said these past days — Thank You, Jesus for opening their filthy, blasphemous mouth:

Turkey, an anti-christian nation which is responsible for the massacre of 3 million Armenian, Assyrian and Greek Christians – and a country which in the past worked together with fascists and Nazis accused Germany and the Netherlands of Nazi practices. PROJECTION – how ironic! Just a year ago, Turkey’s President Erdogan cites ‘Hitler’s Germany’ as example of an effective form of government. They love Hitler, and they want war, don’t they?

Everyone was surprised back in November when this story was revealed: Eritrean Arabic Translator: Muslim Migrants Secretly Hate Christians, Seek to Outbreed Them

Now, no more secret, here you have it all:

You Are Europe’s Future’: Erdogan Tells Turks in Europe Have Five Kids, Not Three

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday urged Turks resident in Europe to have five children, telling the millions strong diaspora community “you are Europe’s future.”

Turkey and Europe are locked in a bitter spat after Germany and the Netherlands blocked Turkish ministers from holding rallies to campaign for a ‘yes’ vote in next month’s referendum on expanding Erdogan’s powers.

Erdogan has repeatedly accused EU states of behaving like Nazi Germany over what he sees as discrimination against Turks, in comments that have caused outrage across the continent.

From here I say to my citizens, I say to my brothers and sisters in Europe… Educate your children at better schools, make sure your family live in better areas, drive in the best cars, live in the best houses,” said Erdogan.

Have five children, not three. You are Europe’s future.”

This is the best answer to the rudeness shown to you, the enmity, the wrongs,” he added in a televised speech in the city of Eskisehir, south of Istanbul.

Some 2.5 million Turkish citizens resident in Europe are eligible to vote in elections in their homeland. But millions more people living in EU states have Turkish origins.

Erdogan, a father of four, has previously urged women in Turkey to have at least three children to help boost the population, in comments denounced by women’s rights activists.

Selected Comments:

This is a declaration of war on our society. Kick Turkey out of NATO, make it a pariah state, trade embargo etc. Round up all Turks and send them back, no exceptions. Proscribe islam and come down hard on Muslim rioters, return all migrants immediately. Europe’s future is in the balance and we must act fast. Erdogan is banking on us being the tolerant people we have always been and allowing Islam to conquer Europe by stealth, we must fight fire with fire.

I presume the leftards will be having an “emergency” protest outside the Turkish embassy at this sexist pronouncement?

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is just about closing time for this world. Muslims are playing for keeps and the liberals are on their side.

What more proof does anyone need to realize that it was NEVER about immigration and assimilation. It was ALWAYS about taking over via the Caliphate! Their plan is no different for the USA!

They want to take over the world. I believe that the end times is coming upon us and it will be the Christians vs the Muslims. What I will never understand is why the leaders of the western world are too stupid to understand what is happening and why they are helping them. I think they are so stuck on their stupid ideology of globalism that they can’t see the danger lurking right in their faces.

It is amazing that the Muslim world tells us exactly what their intentions are, and half our population refuses to believe them. Or do they just not care?

That is nothing new. Hitler laid out his plans years in advance. People just refused to believe him.

Globalism is this era’s re-invented Satanism. Evil is right out in the open and calls itself “Good.” The followers of Molloch and Baal all line up with Globalism. They are quite easy to spot actually. No one is bothering to hide it.

Our so called “leaders” are either planted members of this insanely hostile tribe, or compromised traitors that the tribe controls.

The only problem with that is that where ever they do rule, they start killing each other (that’s the good part), but they also destroy every society that they become a part of.

The denial by liberals across the globe will actually cause the coming civil war. They have basically said nothing is wrong with Islam and anybody that thinks so deserves condemnation.

This refugee crisis did not just happen. All the war in the Middle East facilitated it.

A righteous man respects the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel. [Proverbs 12:10]

Christianity On The Rise In Bangladesh As Tens Of Thousands Of Muslims Are Turning Away From Allah To Embrace Jesus

Posted by addisethiopia on March 16, 2017

Christianity is making such significant gains in one Muslim-majority nation in South Asia that local evangelists are now envisioning the day when their country would become a Christian nation.

The country is Bangladesh, the fourth largest Muslim nation in the world with a population of 164.8 million people, only 866,000 of whom are Christian, according to Open Doors USA.

Christian Freedom International (CFI) says official figures claim that 89.1 percent of the country’s population are Muslim, 10 percent Hindi, and less than 1 percent Christian.

However, the numbers are deceiving. CFI says official reports on religious composition only count “traditional Christians,” or Bangladeshis who are born into the Christian faith and attend government approved churches. The surveys and reports do not include former Muslims who converted to Christianity.

The consensus among believers in Bangladesh is that Christians now make up at least 10 percent of the country’s population and is growing more every day. If the 10 percent figure is correct, then this Muslim-dominated nation is now the home of at least 15.6 million Christians, CFI says.

In fact, one local pastor says Christianity is growing so fast that it has become “a real problem” for the country’s Muslim leaders.

“In the last 12 months, more than 20,000 Muslims have converted to Christianity, and this is becoming a real problem for the Muslims,” says Pastor Khaleque, a former Muslim who is now a Christian street pastor.

The rise of Christianity has also resulted in the increased persecution of believers and crackdown on underground Christian churches as Muslim leaders try to stamp out the threat to their religion.

May the growth continue until the abominable religions are wiped out and every nation on earth honors the universal kingship of Christ.„

The Book Of Enoch’s Fallen Angels Imprisoned In Antarctica And Are Still Alive!

Posted by addisethiopia on March 15, 2017

The book of Enoch seems to reveal that the fallen Angels are still alive and may very well be in Antarctica. No wonder all that strange things that happen in this barren waist land. But what is more shocking is that Enoch reveals that the fallen Angels are still effecting events and men on the earth.

The Ethiopian Book Of Enoch Chapter 18 And 19 Speaking Of Antartica – Where The Fallen Angels Were Locked Up?

Chapter 18

1. I then surveyed the receptacles of all the winds, perceiving that they contributed to adorn the whole creation, and to preserve the foundation of the earth.

2. I surveyed the stone which supports the corners of the earth.

3. I also beheld the four winds, which bear up the earth, and the firmament of heaven.

4. And I beheld the winds occupying the exalted sky.

5. Arising in the midst of heaven and of earth, and constituting the pillars of heaven.

6. I saw the winds which turn the sky, which cause the orb of the sun and of all the stars to set; and over the earth I saw the winds which support the clouds.

7. I saw the path of the angels.

15. Then the angel said, This place, until the consummation of heaven and earth, will be the prison of the stars, and the host of heaven.

16. The stars which roll over fire are those which transgressed the commandment of God before their time arrived; for they came not in their proper season. Therefore was He offended with them, and bound them, until the period of the consummation of their crimes in the secret year.

Chapter 19

1. Then Uriel said, Here the angels, who cohabited with women, appointed their leaders;

2. And being numerous in appearance made men profane, and caused them to err; so that they sacrificed to devils as to gods. For in the great day there shall be a judgment, with which they shall be judged, until they are consumed; and their wives also shall be judged, who led astray the angels of heaven that they might salute them.

3. And I, Enoch, I alone saw the likeness of the end of all things. Nor did any human being see it, as I saw it.

The Ark of Gabriel, Antarctica, Russia and the Apocalypse

A strange series of seemingly linked news stories popped up recently about something called the Ark of Gabriel. It’s referred to as “Gabriel’s Instructions To Muhammad” and is mentioned in conjunction with mass deaths in Saudi Arabia, Russian military operations, secret bases in Antarctica and, most recently, the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church. What is the Ark of Gabriel and why is it suddenly in the news?

While substantiated references to the Ark of Gabriel seem to be non-existent, there are plenty of unsubstantiated tales about it. The most popular story is that the Archangel Gabriel – who many believe told Mary she would give birth to Jesus and dictated the Koran to the Prophet Muhammed – also gave an ark to Muhammed to bury at a place of worship where it would not be removed until the end of the world. It’s not the same as the Ark of the Covenant, which is mention in the Christian Bible and the Koran.

That place of worship was believed to be the Grand Mosque (Masjid al-Haram Mosque) in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where millions pilgrimage annually. The Grand Mosque was being expanded in 2015 when, on September 11th, a crane fell, killing 107 people, including a construction crew. One rumor was that the construction crew had discovered the Ark of Gabriel and was killed by a “plasma emission.” Less than two weeks later, on September 24th, an estimated 4,000 worshipers were killed in what was officially called a stampede and unofficially called another “plasma emission” linked to the Ark.

Continue reading…

ATTENZIONE! ATTENZIONE!!

It is a fact backed up by The One and Only True Holy Bible that the Gabriel which announced the birth of the Savior to Mary was in no way the said imposture freak that said thus and so to the false prophet Mohammit. To confuse the two is doing what the current anti-Pope Francis does is making common cause with terror. This deadly Arc of Gabriel shares no thing with the holy God of the Bible.

Could The Crane Collapse in New York Be Related to The Mecca Collapse on 9/11?

Italian Archbishop Suggests Pope Benedict XVI Resigned Under Obama ‘Pressure’

Posted by addisethiopia on March 10, 2017

The image: While President Obama was escorting Pope Francis September 23, 2015, cameras captured something subliminal: HORNS

It wouldn’t be the first time it appeared Obama had a set of horns.

A year after Pope Benedict XVI was forced to resign, while giving a speech in the White House, it appeared the president had horns coming out of his head:


An Italian archbishop close to Pope Benedict XVI has claimed that the Obama administration may have been complicit in the “tremendous pressures” that led the former pope to resign in 2013.

It is “no coincidence” that some Catholic groups “have asked President Trump to open a commission of inquiry to investigate whether the administration of Barack Obama exerted pressure on Benedict,” said Archbishop Luigi Negri in an interview Monday, citing other revelations by Wikileaks regarding efforts by the Democratic Party to sway the direction of the Catholic Church in the United States.

It remains shrouded in mystery for now,” he said to news outlet Rimini 2.0, “but I am sure that those responsible will be found out.”

The archbishop was making reference to a letter written by a group of American Catholics to President Trump last January requesting that the administration conduct an investigation into a possible Soros-Obama-Clinton conspiracy behind the resignation of Pope Benedict.

The letter stated specifically that “we have reason to believe that a Vatican ‘regime change’ was engineered by the Obama administration.”

Approximately a year after an e-mail conversation released by Wikileaks, the authors contended, “we find that Pope Benedict XVI abdicated under highly unusual circumstances and was replaced by a pope whose apparent mission is to provide a spiritual component to the radical ideological agenda of the international left.”

In startling revelations last October, Clinton campaign chief John Podesta was found to have created phony “Catholic” organizations in order to use Church leaders to push a liberal agenda in congress and to promote the agenda of the Democratic Party.

In the midst of the hundreds of John Podesta’s emails released by Wikileaks, one contained a report by Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, a faux Catholic association founded by Podesta to provoke a revolution in the Catholic Church.

The executive director of the organization, Christopher J. Hale, referred to the group’s “grueling preparation for Pope Francis’s apostolic trip to the US.”

Along with efforts to infiltrate the Church hierarchy, the organization’s collusion with the Obama administration was also made apparent in Hale’s report.

I spoke to the White House yesterday and they assure us the media’s moniker calling us ‘God Squad’ isn’t just sweet nothings, but actually a fair assessment of the substantial difference we’re making in this conversation,” he wrote.

Philadelphia Archbishop Charles Chaput described a meeting with two members of the other “Catholic” organization that Podesta claims to have founded—Catholics United. In a published essay, the archbishop depicted a methodology eerily similar to that employed by Catholics in Alliance.

Chaput said that the two men were “obvious flacks for the Obama campaign and the Democratic Party—creatures of a political machine, not men of the Church,” who showed remarkable “talents of servile partisan hustling.”

In a separate statement, the head of the U.S. Bishops Conference, Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, issued an indictment of the Clinton team, calling them out for interfering in the Church’s self-governance for “short-term political gain.”

Kurtz suggested that Podesta’s actions in creating “Catholic” lobby groups for the Democratic Party constituted a breach of religious freedom, “one of the founding principles of our republic,” which ensures the right of faith communities to “preserve the integrity of their beliefs and proper self-governance.”

In his interview Monday, Archbishop Negri said he has visited Pope Benedict “several times” since the pontiff’s resignation in 2013. Negri resigned last month as archbishop of Ferrara-Comacchio, a post assigned him by Pope Benedict, upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 75.

Archbishop Negri did not lay all the blame for Benedict’s resignation on the Obama administration, but said he was “certain that the truth will emerge one day showing grave liability both inside and outside the Vatican.”

In the interview, Negri was also critical of Pope Francis for failing to answer the dubia—or “questions”—made by four Cardinals regarding certain teachings in the Pope’s letter Amoris Laetitia (The Joy of Love) that seem unclear to many in the Church.

Amoris Laetitia needs clarification, unfortunately, the current leader of the Church still remains silent,” he said. “I think that the Holy Father should respond, although he seems to have decided to the contrary.”

Nothing would surprise us. Let’s face it, he was the first pope to resign in 600 years. Something isn’t right.

We are fighting powers and principalities of heavenly realms. These are dark times indeed

Unconfirmed Reports of Myrrh-Streaming Bust of Tsar-Martyr Nicholas II

Posted by addisethiopia on March 8, 2017

Is this some coincidence or what!? The day before yesterday I blogged this story on Tsar Nicholas II’s gift to the Ethiopian Orthodox church dedicated to the beloved martyr St. George, and now the following two amazing stories pop up today.

When Tsar Nicholas gave the beautiful bell to the Ethiopian church he probably felt then that he will soon be martyred. For whom tolls the bell? It tolls, indeed, for thee! By the way, the mysterious Myrrh, like Frankincense, has its origin in Ethiopia.

As reported yesterday, eyewitnesses have claimed to see myrrh streaming from several icons and a bust of Tsar Nicholas II at the Holy Royal Martyrs chapel in Simferopol. Representatives of the Simferopol and Crimean Diocese have investigated the icons in the chapel and the bust standing outside, but found no traces of the miraculous occurrence. However, as RIA-Novosti reports, they have called on the local priest to continue monitoring the situation.

Earlier Deputy of the State Duma of Russia and former Prosecutor General of the Republic of Crimea Natalia Poklonskaya spoke about the myrrh-streaming bust of the Holy Royal Martyr Nicholas II in Simferopol. Her words have evoked a mixed reaction in social networks.

Miraculous myrrh streaming is typically associated with icons and the relics of saints in Orthodoxy, manifesting the grace of God present in the sacred objects, and is often used for healing.

A study of the situation connected with the statement of the State Duma Deputy about the possibility of the myrrh-streaming bust of the Tsar-Passion Bearer Nicholas II, situated near the chapel of the Holy Royal Passion Bearers… and also of several icons inside the chapel itself, was carried out on site by a commission… At the time of the visit to the chapel… traches of myrrh on the bronze bust of the Tsar-Passion Bearer Nicholas and on the icons in the chapel were not found,” reads a message of the diocesan press service.

However, to come to a final conclusion, the commission has tasked the local priest with continuing to observe the icons and bust, and to report any signs of myrrh to the bishop and commission immediately.
