War between Israel and Iran took a huge leap this week and so did the possibility of a future war between Israel and Jordan.
Strange things are happening with America’s banks. I’ll have more on bank failures including what happened to Capital one.
Let’s get right into the news!
Thank you for listening!

The Israeli Army said Wednesday it attacked dozens of targets in Syria belonging to Iran’s Quds Force and Bashar Assad’s army.
“The attack was carried out in response to the launching of rockets by an Iranian force from Syria’s territory into Israel, intending to strike Israeli territory,” read the IDF statement, referring to a barrage of rockets launched toward Israel’s Golan on Tuesday.
Well, let’s take a look and see if that really is the real story!
This Debka title explains the situation best.
Israel on war alert for Iranian reprisal after IDF assaults on Al Qods’ Syrian bases
This war clearly is in a tremendous uptick. Israeli jets did not enter Syrian air space but struck from the skies of northern Israel and southern Lebanon, Syrian batteries were directed for the first time to try and down them while over Israel territory.
Tuesday’s Iranian attack did not come out of the blue. It followed an earlier Israel strike that morning on one of its facilities near Abu Kamal close to the Syrian border with Iraq. By directing missiles at central Israel, Iran demonstrated two changes of tactics:
Not only is Tehran determined to hit back for every Israeli attack, as it has threatened, but will do so in kind: For every IDF raid on its military assets deep inside Syrian or Iraqi terrain, Iran is poised to strike back similarly deep inside Israel.
An attack on Israel’s central, most densely populated region, would inflict multiple civilian casualties. For that reason alone, the Iranian missile attack on Tuesday should be seen as the direct continuation of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad’s rocket fire from Gaza on the Israeli city of Beersheba on Nov. 16, i.e. three days earlier. Iron Dome batteries averted major tragedies in both cases, but while highly effective, they are not infallible.
The Israeli GPO (Government Press Office) likes to have Israeli media run headlines that make it seem like Israel is just minding its own business when BAM! along comes another enemy. Why, don’t you know, that Israel is just an innocent player in all this? The truth is that Israel is instigating these attacks and Israel has been warned repeatedly to stop attacking Iran but Israel won’t do that.
Israeli forces are on high war alert at this moment due to the assessment that this is just the start of a major clash between the IDF and Iran’s elite Al Qods Brigades. Tehran is unlikely to let Wednesday’s massive Israeli air assault in Syria go unanswered and may well strike back within days or even hours.
After the strikes, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “I made it clear that whoever harms us – we will strike back. This is what we did tonight against military targets of Iran’s Quds Force and Syrian military targets in Syria, after rockets were fired at Israel last night.”
Iran is responding to Israel’s provocation, Benjamin. You are provoking this war because you 1) want to stay in office as Prime Minister and 2) you wrongly believe that Israel is invincible. When the time is right, YHVH will remove His hand to bring your punishment for violating His Jubilee just as He did in Jeremiah 34.
The Jews enslaved their own Jewish brethren after cutting a Covenant saying they would set their slaves free for the Jubilee year. Go and read about it. They re-enslaved the same servants after the Jubilee was over. This is what YHVH had to say to them:
Jeremiah 34:17 “Therefore, thus says the LORD: You have not obeyed me by proclaiming liberty, everyone to his brother and to his neighbor; behold, I proclaim to you liberty to the sword, to pestilence, and to famine, declares the LORD. I will make you to be removed to all the kingdoms of the earth. -KJV+
The word for ‘removed’ is:
By transposition for H2113; agitation, maltreatment: – X removed, trouble.
The Jews were exiled throughout the earth for punishment through mistreatment. First, they went into Babylon but did not learn their lesson and were exiled into all the nations where they have been reviled for over 2000 years. Rather than repent, which is what YHVH wants, they shake their fists at Him determined to do things their way – to practice religion instead of being Kingdom citizens!
Israel’s new hard-line defense minister, Naftali Bennett, issued an equally firm statement.
“The rules have changed: whoever fires on Israel during the day will not sleep at night,” he said. “Our message to the leaders of Iran is simple: you are no longer immune. Any place you dispatch your tentacles, we will chop them off.”
Russia Gets Involved
Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov said on Wednesday that Israeli air strikes on Syria were a wrong move, and Moscow had contacted its allies about the incident, Interfax reported.
Iran is having internal troubles along with its Israeli ones. Protestors burned a Central bank last Friday. The protests broke out after Tehran announced fuel rationing and a price increase of 50 percent. Protestors chanted, “Death to Rouhani” and “Death to Khamenei” — denouncing Iran’s president and its actual supreme leader — as well as “Death to the dictator.”
Iran fired on the protestors. According to some reports, as many as 200 people were killed. Official media admit to more than 1,000 arrests. In a bid to stifle further demonstrations, the regime has imposed a nationwide Internet blackout and banned reporters from covering the protests.
According to Politico, the usual explanation is to blame Iran’s financial distress on the economic sanctions imposed by the Trump administration after America’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal. But the reality is more complicated.
Politico goes on to blame the political battles within the Iranian government over how to run the economy. Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei has pressed his notion of the “economy of resistance”—relying on internal economic resources and eschewing foreign commerce. It now appears the hard-liners have won the debate and are implementing their vision: As part of his “economy of resistance,” Khamenei has pushed to cut government expenditures, which the regime did last week by slashing gasoline subsidies, prompting the price spike and the protests.
The reality is that Khamenei is responding to the crumbling Iranian economy, and the Iranian economy is failing because Presidents Obama and Trump have waged hard economic warfare against Iran.
These protests will enrage Tehran against Israel and America blaming their economic problems on Trump and Israel. The double whammy of a stirred up populace and continual airstrikes by Israel against Iran’s military bases in Syria will only serve to make Iran more determined to fight its mortal enemies – the US and Israel.
With Trump boasting that he could become Prime Minister in Israel, being anointed as ‘king” by a group of Chabad Rabbis and the specter of a 3rd round of elections, Israel is in disarray as badly as Iran.
A poll of the Palestinians showed that population to be split – 49% in favor; 51% not.
At this point, it appears Israel will have no choice but to go through another round of elections.
This brings me to a few thoughts. First, Netanyahu is manipulating his position as the “much needed” Prime Minister to keep himself in office by stirring the pot in Gaza and Syria so that two enemies (who are in collusion with each other against Israel – they truly are enemies of Israel) will continue to prove that Israel needs him. This will enable him to blatantly funnel money from the civil budget to the military and Diaspora budgets, as well as the temple funds, and second, I believe the LORD is orchestrating this and setting Israel up for a fall because of their refusal to let Ephraim return to the Land. Instead, the Jews want to enslave Ephraimites and Gentiles to themselves under the Noahide laws, the same situation that got Israel destroyed and sent into exile twice before.
To the Ephraimites, YHVH’s message is “because you have refused to obey my commandments and have falsely claimed I did away with my own law to justify your disobedience, I will give you laws that will cause your deaths because they are laws you can’t keep.
Why are the Noahide laws not able to be kept? There are only 7 of them, after all. It is because the Talmud regulates Noahide laws and the punishment for crimes against those laws include death. The Rabbis are allowed, according to the Talmud, to change the punishments as they wish. So no one is ever safe trying to obey laws like that.
THE ISRAELI FIGHT AGAINST THE JORDAN OPTION
This Breaking Israel News article says taking Jericho is the ‘gateway to redemption’.
While much of the world screamed at the Trump administration’s announcement that international law does indeed grant Israel the right to Judea and Samaria, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took the opportunity to move forward towards redemption.
On Monday, U.S Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the government was establishing a policy that the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria were not illegal according to international law. By doing so, the Trump Administration returned U.S. policy to its stance under President Ronald Reagan who stated in 1981 that the Jewish settlements in Judea and Samaria were not “inherently illegal.”
As per a campaign promise made before the September 17 election, Netanyahu announced on Tuesday approved a bill that would annex the Jordan Valley.
The vote should go through with ease since Benny Gantz, head of the left-wing Blue and White party, announced two weeks ago that he supported annexing the Jordan Valley and the area adjacent to the Dead Sea.
Rabbi Yehudah Glick, a Temple Mount activist and former Likud Member of Knesset, described the annexation of the Jordan Valley as the beginning of redemption.
The article goes back in history to explain why Jericho belongs to the Jews. Unfortunately, it only goes back to 1948. The Bible tells us that Jericho belonged to the tribe of Benjamin (Joshua 18:21). Benjamin is with the House of Judah, so this territory is part of the House of Judah’s.
But that is not the problem. The problem is that the modern Israelis link Jericho with all of the rest of the West Bank because it was given by the Oslo Accords to the Palestinians.
It belongs to the Jews and should be in Jewish hands but getting it will probably start a war, if not now then later. Jericho could be the last straw before all ties with Jordan break down or it could be the next-to-last straw. Only YHVH knows.
THE JORDAN OPTION HIDING IN THE NEWS
This brings me once again to the Jordan Option. Some US administrations and Israeli Prime Ministers have sought the Jordan Option as a way to solve the Israeli-Palestinian peace issue. Israeli political leaders, generals, and academics have endorsed various versions of the “Jordan Option,” ranging from an improbable overthrow of its Hashemite Royal Family to a confederation in which the Palestinians would be placed under Jordanian “adult supervision.”
Much is NOT said about this Option in the news, but people certainly know about it. Here as an article from Breaking Israel News describing why Jordan becoming the new Palestinian State (which is the basis of the Jordan Option) cannot be the solution. It turns out that Israel not only wants Israel, but some in Israel also want Jordan as part of Israel. Here is what the article says.
Some misguided Jews on the political right, have promoted for the last forty years, the idea that, “Jordan is Palestine.” Jordan isn’t Palestine, it’s part of the promised Land of Israel. And, peace with Arab states that occupy parts of the Jewish people’s inheritance, is a lie from the start.
Those Arabs are probably not Arabs. They are probably mostly composed of the same non-Arab population in the West Bank: descendants of the ancient House of Israel which Jews DESPISE!
I will address the statement that Jordan is part of the Promised Land later on. But right now, I will say that Jordan is part of Abraham’s inheritance. The Promised Land, though, is that small section west of the Jordan river.
The Arabs don’t want peace, because they are thieves and squatters, always worried the owners will come home, and demand their ouster. What better way to assuage their guilt than to claim its theirs?
I once asked a Jewish friend what he thought about us Ephraimites wanting to come home. His response to me was, “So what do you want, Kimberly, part of the land, too?”
That’s when I realized the Jews don’t want us back because they want all of the land to themselves. This land grab has been going on for the last 2900 years starting with Rehoboam’s rush to do battle with the 10 northern tribes after the Kingdom Split.
Rabbi trail: You do know that the reunification of the Kingdom is what everything from 2900 years ago has been about, right?
YHVH told Rehoboam to back off, that this thing was from Him!
Why was “this thing” from YHVH? He was destroying the line of Solomon from ruling over David’s united Kingdom and inheriting David’s throne forever because of Solomon’s idolatry. He gave the 10 tribes to Jeroboam who then went on to lead the House of Israel into total idolatry. He changed the times and dates of all the Feasts and told the tribes to not go to Jerusalem for the Feasts. YHVH didn’t tell Jeroboam to teach that! Our people have hung onto Jeroboam’s sins since that time. These sins surfaced in Christianity which was created by the Edomites. But these sins made the religious capture of the House of Israel easy. The Roman Church’s doctrines that changed everything – the Sabbath and that the Law of Moses was old, decaying, passing away or had passed away – fit with the idolatrous House of Israel descendants because that’s what they already did! But the Catholics added another element – the Messiah! The House of Israel was always looking for Him to come, as promised. And they got a version of Him, albeit a perverted one, in Catholicism.
So today, we have Jews calling YHVH’s people squatters and thieves. Fully 61% of the West Bank Palestinians are ancient Hebrew stock and the Jews well know this! And what they call “Arabs” are mostly comprised of Ishmael who has a very small percentage in that West Bank population. Well, here’s a shock for these Jews. Ishmael has a place in YHVH’s Kingdom because he is the son of Abraham, too!
And, “Jewish” leaders that offer peace, make peace, and give them the impression that the Jewish people can trade off some of its patrimony for a worthless piece of paper, do them a disservice.
Israeli politicians that behave that way are “enablers,” allowing the religion-drunk Muslims who conquered the Jewish people’s land in the 7th century, and later, the 19th century Arab squatters, to continue living in their delusion.
Islam is no worse a religion than Judaism and its population is full of ancient Israelite descendants!
But the God of Israel, His promises to the patriarchs and matriarch of the Jews, continued on through the words of the prophets of old, and their recent fulfillment; seen by all today, in spectacular living technicolor, by their decedents, Jews, Israelis, successfully rebuilding their national life in their ancient homeland, Israel, proves them all wrong.
Stop! Abraham was not the first Jew. He was not the father of the Jews, either. Jacob was the father of Judah whose House of Judah confederacy after the split in David’s Kingdom became known as Jews, a diminutive insulting term they allowed to be placed on them by the Babylonians.
Judah’s land grab does not prove non-Jews wrong and the Jews right. All it proves is that the House of Judah is determined to defy YHVH in allowing all 12 tribes to inherit His Land.
Co-dependent Israeli politicians, such as Prime Minister Netanyahu, who recently took part in a Knesset meeting, that marked the 25th anniversary of Israel’s “peace treaty” with the Kingdom of Jordan, need a 12-step program.
During the gathering, Netanyahu claimed that there’s a direct link between a resolution to the Israel-Palestinian conflict, and the larger conflict between Israel and the Arab world. “If we are able to achieve normalization with the Arab world, then the conflict with the Palestinians will be solved,” peace could be achieved, Netanyahu said.
Netanyahu discussed the state of Israeli-Jordanian relations. He noted recent denunciations of Israel by Jordanian leaders, including King Abdullah, and the termination of Israel’s twenty-five year lease over border areas of the Arava and Naharayim.
Abdullah quickly flew there to participate in a Jordanian flag raising ceremony, to stake their claim.
Let’s remember that the illegitimate Hashemite dynasty, set up by the British, to help the Arabs steal 75% of the Palestine Mandate from the Jews, are living in Eastern Eretz Yisrael.
Notice the Jordanian’s perfidy…
Netanyahu isn’t in complete denial yet, “The agitation in Jordan, which isn’t really related to us, and the Islamization there and in Egypt are very powerful forces.” So, Netanyahu recognizes that under the surface of a false “peace,” between regimes, tensions are mounting and Islamists are percolating.
PS: The hatred never went away, just by signing some paper.
Right. It didn’t go away when Yeshua told you He was coming for the lost sheep of the House of Israel, either. Your ancient Jewish leaders of that time said not only no, but hell no! You’re not bringing them back!
In 1948, YHVH said it was time to re-establish His people in His Land again. So, He got the UN to create the Israeli State and the first of His people entered into it. Then, they did the same exact thing they have been doing for 2900 years – stopping all of YHVH’s other people, sheep, from coming back to their pasture. Rather than welcoming all 12 tribes back, and ruling over them in righteousness, they brought back 4 tribes and are ruling over them with the evil and wicked Talmud!
Guess what is about happen? YHVH is going to kill those who want to take what is not theirs! It’s called war!
In the meantime, Netanyahu’s remarks were missed by this author for what is really happening. Netanyahu cannot afford a war with Jordan. Literally – Israel doesn’t have enough money to fight on Israel’s northern border and its Gaza border and its eastern border. It is likely that he has not yet annexed the entire West Bank yet because he knows that will mean war with Jordan! He hasn’t yet funneled enough money from the public sector to the military to afford that. Also, some of that funneled money has to go for building the Jewish temple. It’s not as easy as it looks to be this underhanded, putting on one face for the public and another for the Chabad New World Order. Things have to happen in a particular way to avoid derailing all their plans!
He then said that despite the peace treaties with Egypt and Jordan, Israel “never really achieved reconciliation with Jordan or Egypt, because of the Palestinian issue.” That’s his take on it.
It’s because Egypt, Jordan and the rest of the Arab/Islamic world, want the Jewish people to give a Kosher stamp of approval, to the Arab/Islamic theft and occupation of parts of the Land of Israel, and formally give it away to the so-called Palestinians.
About the failure to achieve a final status agreement with the Palestinian Authority, (and for the life of me I can’t understand why this should trouble Netanyahu); he said the Palestinian Arab population was internally divided, and hostile towards Israel.
“Why isn’t there peace with the Palestinians? I look at Abu Mazen [Mahmoud Abbas] and ask: ‘What about you?’ They aren’t ready to accept us. Half of the [Palestinian] people back Hamas and want to annihilate us, and the other half don’t want to fight with the first half, while itself suffering from internal conflicts.”
Seems the only thing saving Israelis, from another prime minister giving away part of their ancient homeland to Arab settlers and the occupying authority, is it’s not safe… they hate us!
Israel needs real Jewish leaders who will stand up and tell the Arabs, the Muslim world and everyone else, the God of Israel brought us back to our homeland, He’s fulfilling his promises, and the thieves should leave and go home.
Jordan isn’t Palestine, or a Hashemite kingdom, it’s part of the Land of Israel.
Give it back to the Jewish people now!
Ahhhhh! NO! Jordan was never part of Jewish territory! Why do you Jews insist on denying what is in the Tanach?! The part of Jordan that belonged to Israel was for the tribes of Manasseh, Gad and Reuben and they’re with the Ephraimites! Nary an inch ever belonged to Judah!
The only correct statement made in this Breaking Israel News article is that Jordan is not Palestine! Historically, it was Israel that was called ‘Palestine’!
On the other side of the border in Jordan, Rana Hmouz, a young TV host, called for ‘gouging out eyes of the Zionists’ and called to ‘trampling the peace accord underfoot’. The war sentiment is running both ways!
She called for an end to the 1994 Oslo Accords which created special arrangements for Israeli farmers and their employees to work lands in Naharayim and the southern Tzofar enclave on the northern end of the countries’ shared border for 25 years.
That period ended last weekend, and Amman, in keeping with an announcement it made last year, took back possession of the small strips of land, known in Arabic as Baqoura and Ghumar.
“But our joy is not complete. We have more demands,” she goes on. “We want to see a similar decision that will let us trample the peace accord underfoot. We want to see a similar decision that will let us trample the gas and water agreements underfoot. We want to see a similar decision that will let us trample the entire Zionist entity underfoot. We don’t want their representatives defiling our land.”
She adds: “After Baqoura, we want to gouge out the eyes of the Zionists and their [Arab] supporters.
See? These people don’t even know who they are!
After Ghumar, we want [our hearts] to overflow with joy when we annul the peace agreement in support of the blood of our martyrs and the Arab identity of Palestine.”
I shall give the same Kingdom perspective to the Jordanians as I give to the Israelis. Not all of Jordan is not yours. It belongs partly to Manasseh, Gad and Reuben. Its southernmost territories belong to Amman, Moab and Edom. You want all of Israel added to you and Israel wants all of Jordan added to them. YHVH’s commandments regarding this region will prevail. Neither of you will get his way!
Israeli secular Zionist pundits are looking for every way they can to say that the building of the coming Jewish temple is being fulfilled. Of course, nowhere in scripture does the Bible say the temple is a Jewish temple. It belongs to all 12 tribes. However, according to this Breaking Israel News, the latest Gaza battle inadvertently caused a prophecy fulfillment on Temple Mount.
Israeli police told religious Jews who visit the Temple that in case of sirens, they should essentially drop to the ground and serve God in the manner Jews served God in the Temple.
It is forbidden for Jews to prostrate themselves in any other place. For this reason, Jews who prostrate themselves on the Temple Mount are forcibly removed by the Israeli police lest the Muslim Arabs respond with violence.
The rocket attack from Gaza did not reach Jerusalem so no one got to prostrate themselves. Given enough of Netanyahu’s provocation, though, they will at some point have the opportunity. They will pray while others run.
Capital One customers couldn’t withdraw money from ATMs for hours during a system outage last Friday. Also, some direct deposits never showed up in customer accounts, while others said they logged in to be informed — wrongly — that they had no money.
Regulators have been asking for years whether banks’ use of a narrow set of cloud providers creates a systemic risk to the financial system. Capital One used a cloud-based system sold by Amazon.
Now the theory will be tested in public view as Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., has asked the Federal Trade Commission to explore Amazon’s role in a recent security breach that happened at Capital One.
It is another significant step toward a very public discussion of how cloud giants receive regulatory oversight, and another strategic move by legislators to highlight the systemic importance of cloud service providers to the wider financial sector.
Last August, U.S. lawmakers called on a top financial regulatory panel to consider direct oversight of the cloud services big tech companies provide to banks, saying they have become a critical component of the global financial system.
That’s what we need! Another government intrusion into what is left of our privacy. Warren found her opportunity to push this agenda.
The US government can get into any cloud account already but it must do this under the FISA court which is coming under scrutiny now. What better way to intrude on individuals and corporations than to take this opportunity to make cloud services be regulated directly by the US government? No FISA court will be required for the US government to just jump into any cloud account it wishes. Problem solved. Thank you so much, Ms. Elizabeth Warrant!
The Capitol One debacle may or may not have been a test run under the guise of an employee who exploited a loophole in the configuration of the bank’s firewall to gain access to places she should not have been in. Most regular employees don’t know how to hack.
Yes, I know there are hobby hackers, but there are also paid hackers, ones who are paid by the US government and who are moles in many, many corporations across the US. So, was the Capital One situation a test of the system to assess people’s reactions for the future? I don’t know, but what I do know is the American economy is not in the good shape the White House purports it to be and this situation just set American’s teeth further on edge.
Last week, I reported that 4 banks had failed in 2019. I saw the FDIC list. I read the articles. Both agreed the number was four. Thanks to a BWN reader who sent me a better list – still on the FDIC website – I found out that this number was quite low! In fact, 4X that number have failed this year. Sixteen bank failures! Go read the list.
Mortgage foreclosures are rising again just as they did before the 2008 bust. I was a Realtor then. In 2006, I began working for Freddie Mac on their foreclosures in our MLS.
I got the first one in 2006 then sat around waiting for another until sometime in 2007 when the foreclosure properties began to exceed my personal listings. So the process took about a year to take off and another year, to 2008, to become full blown. It was good for my business but not good for the economy!
Here is what Talking Points Memo (TPM) has to say.
The bust has hit Boston. Foreclosures are growing at a staggering pace. The once hot-hot-hot Boston real estate market has seen a 63% increase in foreclosures in the first quarter this year. Some of those “creative mortgages” are starting to look “creative” in the horror-movie way that spurting blood and slow-mo death were once hailed as creative film-making.
So is the industry cutting back? Heck, no. It’s full-steam-ahead, more creativity, more loans and more spurting blood to come.
Our own Katie MacArthur pointed out that consumers are beginning to get it. But the lenders don’t want to hear it. They are still looking for the last sucker who thinks stretching like crazy to buy real estate right now makes sense.
One of my mortgage lender friends (yes, I have mortgage lender friends — although they always want to remain anonymous) says it is an over-supply problem. The over-supply is people who sell mortgages.
It is the same old story. The bankers didn’t learn the first time around and now those mortgage derivatives are about to jump up and bite them in butt.
Nationally foreclosures are up 7% this quarter. That’s well behind Boston’s big numbers, but Boston was a leader during the boom. Will it now lead in the bust?
You see, the US is doing economic war on Iran and America is getting its own internal economic and banking mess. It is going through its own economic war even under the Trump administration. A self-imposed war.
So, there are wars all around. Israel with Iran, Israel with Gaza, perhaps Israel with Jordan and economic problems to spare everywhere. Stay alert!
