Controlling the Sunshine

Billionaire Bill Gates apparently believes he can usurp God’s control over the Sun, and the air that we breathe.

In Sweden, Bill Gates is working to cool the surface of the earth by blocking the Sun. An experiment is underway to create a cloud of calcium carbonate, which is essentially “chalk dust” to block the Sun and lower the temperature of our planet. Harvard University is assisting on this project.

Bill Gates is also working with a company in British Columbia to devise a way to “suck” carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. The process involves a combination of giant fans and complex chemical processes to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Gates believes this will protect our planet from climate change.

When God created the earth and every living thing therein, God also created this life-sustaining plan: Humans and animals breathe in oxygen and exhale carbon dioxide – Plants, trees, and all vegetation take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. And God’s plan hasn’t failed us yet.

Apparently, Bill Gates and others believe God’s life-sustaining plan is flawed. Critics say Bill Gates’ efforts to block the Sun and suck carbon dioxide out of the air could result in massive crop failures and an extreme scarcity of food (famine) all around the world.

Is this some demonic plan to destroy mankind by eliminating fossil fuels and getting us solely dependent on wind and solar . . . and then they pull the plug by blocking the Sun?

That brings up another Bill Gates’ anomaly: The New York Post reports Bill and Melinda Gates are now the biggest U.S. farmland owners. The Gates have been secretly acquiring U.S. farmland for years, and now they own at least 242,000 acres of American farmland, and an additional 27,000 acres of U.S. land that is non-agricultural.

Why is Gates buying all this land? Gates is not a farmer, although he has invested in a company that produces plant-based substitutes to replace beef products – Gates is opposed to raising beef cattle because he believes their emission of methane gas is harmful to the planet.

Some say Bill Gates is planning to build an exclusive “smart city.” It is uncertain as to who the residents of that city would be since Bill and Melinda both believe in eugenics. Merriam-Webster defines Eugenics as “the practice or advocacy of controlled selective breeding of human populations (as by sterilization) to improve the population’s genetic composition.” And I must add: Abortion contributes mightily to eugenics thinking.

Another puzzling thing about Bill Gates: He has also invested in a company to develop a new type of compact, ultra-safe nuclear reactor. In a recent episode of “60 Minutes,” Gates explained that “zero-carbon energy sources like nuclear power are vital in reducing carbon emissions that warm the atmosphere.” Most environmentalists are opposed to nuclear power.

With an estimated net worth of $132 billion, Bill Gates is the third-richest person in the world. He falls in behind Tesla founder Elon Musk and Amazon’s Jeff Bezos. Does anybody know what’s going on in the minds of these people? You and I may not know, but nothing is hidden from Almighty God; and you can be sure that God will deal with it appropriately when the time is right.

The Global Tax Proposal

U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is now proposing that all nations get together and implement a Global Tax on all multinational corporations. Yellen says, “This will create a more level playing field and will spur innovation, growth, and prosperity.”

Note: Government taxes do not create prosperity – they do just the opposite – they take money away from hardworking individuals and well-run profitable businesses and redistribute it to others in an effort to achieve equity among the masses; i.e., “From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs” (Karl Marx’ Communist Manifesto).

Yellen went on to say, “Competitiveness is about more than how U.S. headquartered companies fare against other [global] companies . . . It is about making sure that [global] governments have a stable tax system . . . and that all [global] citizens fairly share the burden of financing [global] government.”

Yellen made this proposal in a speech opening the World Bank and International Monetary Fund’s spring meetings which are being held virtually, and hosted by the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Yellen’s proposal coincides with President Biden’s announcement last week that he wants to increase the U.S. corporate tax rate to 28%, which would put the U.S. corporate tax rate 3% higher than China’s 25%.

Any reasonable person with common sense should be asking the Biden administration: “If you truly want to compete against China, why would you implement a higher tax rate on U.S. corporations? Are you doing this simply to reverse President Trump’s tax reductions? Or, are you truly unaware that higher corporate taxes always result in higher consumer prices?”

It’s standard business practice to incorporate “the cost of doing business” into the retail price of your product or service. As a business owner, if you didn’t do that, you would soon find yourself bankrupt and out of business.

Government taxes (federal, state, county and city), and the cost of labor, are big ticket items when it comes to computing your cost of doing business. And yet, the Biden administration is proposing big increases for both.

This proposal by Janet Yellen, and the drunken sailor spending plans of President Biden, should make it clear to every American citizen: These plans will not benefit U.S. citizens. No, these plans are designed to shift the wealth from the United States to other countries, whom the United Nations, European Union, and the anti-American leaders of other countries consider to be “more worthy.”

It is all part of the “open border” plan underway right now, which will destroy the sovereignty of the United States and render us financially incapable of defending ourselves, thereby making us dependent on other nations, and paving the way for the soon to come One World Government as prophesied in the Holy Bible.

“He [the Antichrist] opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. And he was given authority over every tribe, people, language and nation. All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast [the Antichrist] — all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb [Jesus] that was slain from the creation of the world” (Revelation 13:6-8 NIV).

Wake up America, it is later than you think. Repent, turn from your wicked ways and pray for this nation. And make sure you are ready to meet Jesus face to face. If you are unsure, God’s Word tells us:

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” (Romans 10:9 KJV).

Pray This Prayer for Salvation

“Jesus, I am a sinner, and I am sorry. Please forgive my sins and come into my heart as my Lord and Savior. I repent (turn away) from sin and I commit my life to you. I will study your word, follow your teachings, and obey your commands. And Lord, show me what you want me to do; what part I can play in furthering your kingdom. Thank you, Lord, for saving me. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.”
