Empowering the Enemy


The United States has not been a passive bystander in the prophesied rise of Iran and Germany. It has encouraged and aided the astonishing rise of these two world powers.

In the Bible, the book of Daniel describes a spectacular military clash to occur between two major powers right before a horribly destructive global war that will threaten to destroy every last human being on Earth. One is called “king of the north,” and the other, “king of the south” (Daniel 11:40). Plain Truth editor in chief Herbert W. Armstrong identified the king of the north as modern Germany. Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry has identified the king of the south as radical Islam, led by Iran.

In this prophesied confrontation, Iran pushes at Germany, prompting the northern king to come against radical Islam “like a whirlwind.”

Yet the most significant part of this prophecy is what it doesn’t say. The world’s lone superpower, the United States of America, is not even mentioned. Why is it missing from this crucial prophecy? Because by the time it is fulfilled, the United States will no longer be a superpower! It will be too weak to factor into these earthshaking clashes.

Iran Won’t Stop Till It Reaches Jerusalem

In a world where leaders rarely say what they mean, Iran’s supreme leader says exactly what’s on his mind.

ERUSALEM—It can be easy to allow the frequent Iranian diatribes against Israel to become cliché. Especially when headlines such as “Iran’s Supreme Leader Backs Holy Intifada to Destroy ‘Cancer’ Israel” or “Israel Is a ‘Cancerous Tumor,’ ‘Fake Nation’” appear so regularly in the news, as they did this week. This type of rhetoric from the Iranian regime has been used so often and for so long that we might be lulled into believing they are mere words. After all, after years of such hateful threats, Israel still exists.

However, every so often, it’s good to remember: This is not just rhetoric: the Iranians really do believe what they say. This is not mere hyperbole; the regime does believe in the destruction of the Jewish state. It really does believe that Israel is a cancerous tumor that it must literally remove from the Middle East. It really does believe that Israel needs to be wiped off the map. The only reason this has not happened already is not because Tehran lacks the will, it only lacks the means. Continue reading

Iran’s Next President Will Be a Hard-liner


How elections and escalating tensions with Donald Trump will make it difficult for Hassan Rouhani to win a second term

Under United States President Barack Obama, Iran benefited enormously by pretending to be moderate. It was the “moderate” nature of Iran’s current president, Hassan Rouhani, that Mr. Obama said provided pretext for the nuclear deal that he implemented with Iran on Jan. 16, 2016. That deal ended powerful economic sanctions and gave Iran billions of dollars in cash.

However, that moderate pretense may not be Iran’s most expedient policy anymore, now that America has a new president. What worked for President Obama is unlikely to work for President Trump. Going up against Mr. Trump will probably force Iran to drop its cloak of modesty and become more overtly confrontational. Continue reading

Iran Is More Powerful Than Ever


A dramatic fulfillment of a forecast made by Trumpet editor in chief Gerald Flurry back in the early ’90s

When Iran test-fired ballistic missiles last week, United States President Donald Trump angrily tweeted that “Iran has been formally PUT ON NOTICE.” The era of American appeasement toward Iran that took place under the Obama administration appears to be over. But, as the Washington Post noted this weekend, the U.S. faces an Iran “that is now more powerful than at any point since the creation of the Islamic republic nearly 40 years ago.”

Iran now stands at the apex of an arc of influence stretching from Tehran to the Mediterranean, from the borders of NATO to the borders of Israel and along the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula. It commands the loyalties of tens of thousands in allied militias and proxy armies that are fighting on the front lines in Syria, Iraq and Yemen with armored vehicles, tanks and heavy weapons. They have been joined by thousands of members of the [Islamic] Revolutionary Guard Corps, Iran’s most prestigious military wing, who have acquired meaningful battlefield experience in the process.

Berlin terror attack: Lorry ploughs into crowd of shoppers killing nine, trapping others and leaving 50 injured at Christmas market – with killer driver now on the run

As said dozens of times here throughout the years, Europe will take a hard right political turn. All it needs is a catalyst, or two or three, to set it all off. Europe is already militarizing and you can see that from the EU Army, United States of Europe and Fourth Reich topics, for example. The coming attacks will provoke and provoke until a war starts.

This essentially boils down to the Biblically prophesied King of the North the King of the South  (Likely a German-led United States of Europe versus an Iranian dominated Middle East — both of which you can see shaping up in their beginning stages) situation which is likely building up right now. It will only be a matter of time. That’s where this is heading and that’s what this has been warned here about for years. This isn’t a joke. You’re watching it unfold before your very eyes.

Note: The full article will remain here for archiving purposes.


The vehicle left a trail of devastation in its wake, in a chilling echo of the deadly terror attack in the French city of Nice in July – and comes just one hour after the Russian ambassador was shot dead in Ankara


  • At least 50 injured and nine dead after truck sped through a crowd of shoppers at busy Christmas market
  • Police indicated the incident is likely to be a terror attack as driver is arrested and passenger in cab died
  • Terrified market-goers have tweeted horrifying images from the scene showing the devastating aftermath 
  • Heavy goods vehicle – which has a Polish number plate – was racing through the market at 40mph
  • Police in Berlin using Twitter to urge people to stay in their homes as Angela Merkel is ‘mourning the dead’

At least nine people have been killed and more than 50 injured after a lorry ploughed through a crowd of shoppers at 40mph in a busy Christmas market in Berlin.

As German police indicated the incident is likely to be terror related, ISIS moved quickly to claim responsibility for the fatal attack.

The vehicle mounted the pavement before speeding through a crowd of shoppers, tearing through stalls as it travelled the entire length of the market on Breitscheidplatz Square, outside the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church in west Berlin. Continue reading

Ethiopia on the Brink?

Could ongoing protests lead to social breakdown?

Civil unrest is growing in Ethiopia, Africa’s second-most populous nation. Upset by inequality and systemic corruption, members of Ethiopia’s two largest districts have taken to the streets. Since November last year, the protesters have faced off against strong government crackdowns.

Eighty percent of the country lives in poverty. Famine threatens 15 million residents. Many are ready to take out their frustrations on the government. But instability fosters its own problems, and opportunists in the region are watching closely.

France and Germany propose EU ‘defence union’

And guess where the focus is: The Middle East, where the Biblically prophesied King of the South (possibly Iran) just might reside. Who leads this? Germany’s Fourth Reich. France, as you’ve seen in years worth of previous posts on Global Geopolitics, including this one, only toes the dominant German line.

Furthermore, with America on its way out as a world superpower, we might be seeing the rise of another via Germany and its collection of subordinate vassal states, which could also as a whole turn into the Biblically prophesied King of the North. This new incoming bloc at the moment is referred to as the United States of Europe. Only time will tell how God chooses to let this play out.

Germany and France have drawn up plans for closer EU defence cooperation, including a new military HQ and swifter deployment of overseas missions.

The ideas were outlined by the two countries’ defence ministers, Ursula Von der Leyen and Jean-Yves Le Drian, in a six-page paper sent to the EU foreign service on Sunday (11 September) and seen by German newspaper Sueddeutsche Zeitung and French daily Le Figaro.

The Franco-German paper says, according to Le Figaro, that “in the context of a deteriorating security environment … it is high time to reinforce our solidarity and European defence capabilities in order to more effectively protect the citizens and borders of Europe”. Continue reading

Enabling the King of the South—Why Barack Obama Never Wanted Regime Change in Iran


In 2009, hundreds of thousands of Iranians protested against their nation’s government over a rigged presidential election. It was a golden opportunity for the newly elected President Barack Obama to denounce the anti-American leadership in Iran and promote a regime change. However, President Obama didn’t just ignore the crisis in Iran, he trusted the government of Iran to handle it and told members of his administration to stop backing leaders of the protests. Why didn’t the president intervene in Iran, like he did years later in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya? Find out on today’s Trumpet Daily Radio Show. Continue reading

Iran’s Past and Future Presence in Latin America

Investigations into past Iranian terrorist attacks in Argentina reveal the extent of its terror network in Latin America and its determination to sponsor global chaos.

On July 18, 1994, a Hezbollah suicide bomber operating under directions from Iran, rammed a truck laden with 600 pounds of explosives into the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (amia) building—a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires. The ensuant blast killed 85 people and wounded more than 300 others.

Nearly 22 years later, the amia bombing remains as the worst terrorist attack in Argentine history, and it is largely unsolved. But the bombing is arguably the most revealing of the extent of Iran’s terror outreach beyond the borders of the Middle East.

As Iran has expanded and spread its acts of terrorism and its hatred for Jews all over the Earth, even right up to the United States’ backdoor, it simultaneously has worked hard to cover its tracks and present itself as a pragmatic international partner. Terrifyingly, Iran has scored some successes: The world’s number one state sponsor of terrorism is now essentially an ally of the U.S. and the West.

Time will prove that to be a fatal mistake. Continue reading

Iran Wants War. It Is About to Get One.

From 2012 with a lesson for today’s times:

Flush from victories in the ‘Arab Spring,’ Iran is getting pushier and pushier.

Could Iran get any bolder? It seems absolutely bent on starting a war.

On Monday Iran finished off 10 days of naval exercises in international waters near the Strait of Hormuz. In the midst of those war games, Iran’s political and military leaders threatened to retaliate against sanctions by shutting down the strait. It also came to light that Iran’s Revolutionary Guards plan to sow Hormuz with mines. Continue reading

Iran’s War of Terror in Africa

And how will this whirlwind prophecy be done? Likely through a European Army created by the German-led United States of Europe, if it isn’t NATO.

The Islamic Republic’s terrorist reach extends well beyond the Middle East.

Even to the casual observer, Iranian meddling in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Yemen, Bahrain and other Middle Eastern nations is abundantly evident.

Iran is fighting both directly and indirectly against rebel forces in Iraq and Syria. It has tremendous clout in Lebanon via its Hezbollah proxy, and its determination to “wipe Israel off the map” is widely known. Recently, an Iranian general declared that his nation “must make efforts to bring Bahrain back into Iranian territory and transform it into a part of [its southwestern province of Bushehr].” And in the past four months, three Iranian shipments of weapons have been intercepted in the Middle East. The most recent of those arms shipments was intended for Houthi rebels in Yemen.

What’s less apparent, however, is Iranian meddling in Africa. Continue reading

BREAKING NEWS: At least 11 people killed after two explosions rock Brussels Airport in ‘suicide bombing’ – as SECOND ‘terror attack’ hits Metro station in city centre

Longtime readers of this site will recall the many warnings throughout the years of Europe taking an extreme political and social right turn due to islamic terrorism. It appears the time has come where that push will be made, although, and hopefully it’s a wrong assessment, but the worst is yet to come. Europe will experience its own 9/11, or worse, and that will be the catalyst. Europe, home to the world’s most bloodiest wars, will see war again. Could what’s coming be the Biblicaly prophesied “push” referred to in Daniel 11, in the King of the North vs. the King of the South scenario? Only time will tell, but Europe’s powerhouse, Germany, is indeed building an EU Army while NATO is doing nothing and remains unprepared for war.

Updates will roll in as they come, as necessary.



Carnage: At least eleven people have died and several injured after two explosions rocked Brussels Airport in a suspected terror attack



  • Shouts ‘in Arabic’ heard before two explosions went off near the American Airlines check-in desk at 8am (7am GMT)
  • Terrified passengers covered in blood ran for their lives after explosion sent ‘shockwaves’ through terminal building
  • Reports of another explosion at a Metro station near the EU headquarters in the Maelbeek area of central Brussels
  • Evacuated passengers are being ferried onto buses and are being driven to a ‘crisis centre’ away from the airport
  • Comes a day after Belgium minister warned of revenge attacks after arrest of Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam

At least eleven people have died and several injured after two explosions rocked Brussels Airport in a suspected terror attack.

Witnesses described seeing ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ after the blasts which are believed to have centred on the American Airlines check-in desk at around 8am (7am GMT).

There were reports that shouts in Arabic were heard in the building before the two explosion and shots were fired in the aftermath.

Around 90 minutes later, there were reports of another explosion at a Metro station near the EU headquarters in central Brussels. Continue reading

The Worst Foreign-Policy Blunder in American History

The Obama administration has given the number one terrorist-sponsoring nation in the world a clear path to nuclear weapons.

The world became a safer place on January 16, according to United States Secretary of State John Kerry. That day marked the implementation of the disastrous nuclear deal with Iran. The U.S. and the European Union lifted sanctions on Iran and released about $100 billion in frozen assets—and they received nothing in return!

This cataclysmic foreign-policy blunder is the first day of the worst suffering ever on this planet! “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22).

The Iran deal contains bad news and good news. The bad news is that Iran is now capable of triggering World War iii (Daniel 11:40). The good news is that Jesus Christ will return to stop mankind from annihilating itself (Daniel 2:44). Continue reading

Mideast expert: Israel forced to consider attack on Iran

Now that belligerent Iran has now been given the green light, it wastes no time in showing its true colors and intent. Lifting sanctions has cleared the way for Iran to rise as a world superpower, or Bibically prophesied King of the South.

Long-time readers of Global Geopolitics will also remember it’s been said over the years here that Israel will be backed into a corner and have no choice but to carry out a preemptive strike. In short, this will set the Middle East on fire. Many nations will be involved such as Syria, who has a mutual defense pact with Iran. Turkey might also jump into the fray and take advantage of the chaos by attacking Syria, which might lead to a counter-attack from Damascus on the NATO nation, which means an attack on one is an attack on all. Furthermore, thousands of terrorist cells across the United States homeland will get the green light to carry out attacks — be it crowded shopping malls, hospitals, schools and so on. Expect massive cyber attacks on America’s critical infrastructure, financial system, etc…, too. Lastly, don’t forget, with the U.S. busy and distracted in the Middle East, China might launch an attack on Taiwan which could also lead the Asian giant into an exchange of fire against Japan and America.

Israel will also have to strike soon, possibly by the end of summer or fall of 2015, now that it seems Moscow is going to sell the Iranians missile defense systems than the S-300, as originally offered. This is likely why the IDF is launching massive military drills and calling up reservists as this is being written.

What’s more alarming is that, under the nuclear ‘deal’, the United States is now obligated to protect Iran by ensuring the physical security of its nuclear infrastructure. Yes, you read that correctly. Under Barack Obama, the United States is deliberately working against Israel. In the past, it’s been reported the Obama administration had also threatened to shoot Israeli warplanes down should they attempt to carry out an attack on Iran. Yes, you also read that one correctly.

It’s time for Israel to kill or be killed – and, on schedule and as planned, the Obama administration has provoked World War III where Israel will be set up to be seen as the evil aggressor and the cause of all the world’s ills.

The dynamite has been primed. What lights the very short fuse remains to be seen.


Nuclear agreement leaves Jewish state with little alternative

WASHINGTON – The nuclear agreement with Iran leaves Israel with little alternative but to launch a military attack against the Islamic regime’s nuclear facilities, a leading Middle East expert says in a report in Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.

“Assuming the (agreement) goes through the U.S. government and the U.N. Security Council, it’s hard to see what the Israelis can do to protect themselves other than attack the Iranian facilities,” said Middle East Forum president Daniel Pipes in an interview with G2.

Pipes, a historian, writer and political commentator, said that he sees such an attack as “the next stage” and suggests Israel could receive the assistance of Saudi Arabia.
