Possible Impeachment, and Hard Times.

Tom's Journal. http://tomschuckmanjournal.blogspot.com/


In the Picture:

"Tom's truck, Dodge Ram"  a few years ago... like about 20 years back.   I wish I still had that body and strength....  but with all the BRAINS that I have today !   Too bad I had to learn so much -- the hard way, at the 'school of hard knocks.'   Smile.

BTW [by the way], the price of Precious Metals... Silver, gold, platinum, etc., has really moved UP this past month !!   Those who listened to me years ago are most likely very happy they did, today.  Remember, money [silver] just gives a man or lady MORE OPTIONS in life, where a poor man has fewer or none.   For example, if  you live in a flood plane or Hurricane driven area, a good vehicle with 4WD will probably be more dependable.  Way U.P. North in the USA -- Michigan, a disabled gentleman like me really needs a fine Dodge Ram 4WD truck because of the intense snow and ice.   Thank the Lord for providing!  Smile.  But I worked long and hard my entire life and earned a pension, etc.  Also trained and educated in PFS Investments/ Securities.  My passed brother Albert also worked double hard all of his life, but didn't get a good health care package with his retirement, etc.  I miss him now, dearly, but he had his ways of rubbing some folks the wrong way, and I think that we were too competitive in nature.  Still,  I really miss him and my Mom now, a year after they are gone.  Brother Albert talked to me about heaven shortly before he passed away, a day later.   Sorry,  but I just feel that I am the next of our family to go.... and I pray often to grow closer to the Lord.

Hi Friends,
    Well,  we all knew that the Liberal-Hate Infested Left would finally do some damage to our Democracy sooner or later regarding the hard working Trump Administration, and today we got a major load of it dumped into the TV News.   What a shame.   However, there are 2 ways to look at things on the surface.  We are that much closer to 'seeing' the Lord take action to cleanse the earth.   Yet, I admit that I worry too much.   Both my wife and I suffer from back pain, etc., [ and she finally saw her 'back doctor' today in WI.] ---so it's hard to attend church on a weekly basis,  but we will try harder.   I sorely NEED to find and make more quality, Christian friends!!  Too many of my old friends are dying on me... dang.   Sorry to say that so many so-called 'Christian churches' now days are fake, false religion, and also infiltrated by Islam!  Beware.  I am not h ear to bash anyone.  Yet I would surely be a coward if I remained silent about the unsavory truth of religion in America and Europe.  
    And in my humble opinion, the liberal laws are rigged in my country so that if and when the SHTF scenario comes --- the banks will have the freedom to plunder our retirement and bank accounts.  Beware.   Some friends of mine are into pure silver buying and investing these days.   Smart move !  Gold is already getting to be too expensive to buy for many common folks....IMHO.

Israel Update

By Hal Lindsey

On Monday, September 23rd, the Likud party of Benjamin Netanyahu and the Blue and White party of Benjamin Gantz agreed to pursue a "unity government" for Israel. Negotiating teams are set to begin working out details of the proposed government on October 1st. It will be a difficult and treacherous process.

After the election in April, a government could not be formed. So, in September, just a few days ago, Israel held another election. Again, there was no clear-cut winner. Gantz's Blue and White party won 33 seats and Netanyahu's Likud won 31 seats, leaving them both a long way from the 61 seats needed to form a majority.

Israel has a parliamentary system of government. They call their legislative body the "Knesset." That name comes from Knesset HaGdola, meaning "Great Assembly." According to tradition, Ezra formed the Great Assembly. It was a religious council of 120 scribes, sages, and prophets. While it would be difficult to find a sage or prophet in the modern Knesset, the number remains fixed at 120 - requiring 61 seats to create a majority.

Reuven Rivlin serves as President of Israel. The President has many ceremonial jobs but few actual powers. The most significant of his powers is in facilitating a new government following each election. The President must consult with Knesset members to determine who has the best chance of forming a governmental majority.

After recent polling of the Knesset, he found that Netanyahu had a slight advantage with 55 backers, compared to Gantz's 54. That 54 includes the backing of the Israeli Arab party. It would be difficult to raise either of those numbers to 61, thus the proposed unity government.

Such a government would require some means of sharing power. From 1984 to 1988, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Shamir took turns acting as Prime Minister. While possible, such an arrangement between Netanyahu and Gantz has, at least until now, seemed highly unlikely.

A few days ago, Gantz cited impending indictments against Netanyahu as reasons against pursuing a unity government. Despite the accusations and investigations, formal charges have not been filed against the Prime Minister. He continues to deny all the accusations. The Attorney General of Israel is scheduled to announce a decision on whether to indict on October 3rd. That greatly complicates the process of forming a government.

People tire of politicians. Winston Churchill stands as one of the great figures of the 20th century. He held his nation together during the terrible German blitz. After helping to lead the Allies to victory in World War II, he almost immediately lost his job as Prime Minister in 1945. That's just how the world works.

It's easy to forget what things were like in Israel when Bibi Netanyahu became Prime Minister. Bus bombs and intifadas made every moment of every day feel like a life or death struggle. Syria and Hezbollah constantly threatened from the north. Former Prime Minister Ehud Barak almost gave away East Jerusalem. Thankfully, Yasser Arafat thought he could get even more, and turned the deal down. Benjamin Netanyahu changed all that. He brought the kind of stability that is necessary for national progress and economic prosperity.

He built an amazing record, but he also accumulated enemies. Those enemies include much of the Israeli and international press corps, as well as liberals in his own and other countries. Nevertheless, he stands as a towering figure in the history of modern Israel - the man Israel needed for the times in which he led.

Those of us who love Israel can hope his leadership will continue during the turbulent days to come. If not, we can be thankful for his leadership to this point.

The Book of Daniel teaches that the revived nation of Israel will one day join in a treaty with the Antichrist. The confirmation of that treaty will mark the beginning of what is popularly known as "the Tribulation." The present turmoil in Israel seems to be bringing the world closer to that day.
