I know that headline may seem a bit over the top, but these things really are happening. We really are in the midst of a multi-year “megadrought” in the western half of the country, meteorologists really are warning that we could see the worst heatwave that the Northwest has ever experienced next week, and a plague of “voracious grasshoppers” has already started in some parts of the nation.
As I keep warning my readers, we live at a time when our world seems to be going nuts. Just when it seems like things can’t get any crazier, somehow they do. In this article I am going to be focusing on weather conditions, but next week I will almost certainly be writing about something else that has gone totally haywire. These are not “normal times”, and we need to stop treating them as such.
Let me start by discussing the dreadful heatwave that is about to slam into the Northwest. Accuweather is actually using the word “unprecedented” to describe it…
A heat wave of unprecedented magnitude and duration is forecast to grip the Pacific Northwest this weekend and bring dangerously high temperatures that could make life miserable into next week for a region where air conditioning is not a fixture in most households.
Triple-digit temperatures are forecast throughout parts of Oregon and Washington, which includes the Interstate 5 corridor. Both Portland, Oregon, which could see the mercury crack the 110-degree mark, and Seattle, which is expected to top 100, could experience temperatures around 30 to 40 degrees above normal and challenge daily record highs.
To most of my readers, a high temperature of 100 degrees in Seattle may not sound that dramatic, but the truth is that the city has only seen the temperature reach triple digits three times before…
Historically, Seattle has only seen 100 degree temperatures in June once, on June 9, 1955, while touching triple-digits on three occasions in total. By Sunday or Monday, the region will see what the NWS labels “unprecedented record breaking heat,” with a chance that Seattle sees its hottest recorded day of all time for any month.
But of much greater concern is what we could see in some of the other cities in the Northwest.
In Missoula, the high temperature is supposed to reach 105 degrees on Tuesday.
In Spokane, the high temperature is supposed to reach 110 degrees on Tuesday.
In Portland, the high temperature is supposed to reach 113 degrees on Sunday.
In Yakima, the high temperature is supposed to reach 113 degrees on both Monday and Tuesday.
Throughout all of next week, it is expected that high temperatures will shatter existing records all over the region. What many people may not realize is that vast numbers of people in the Northwest do not have any air conditioning in their homes because most years it is simply not needed.
So this has the potential to become a life-threatening situation for a whole lot of people.
Of course, all of this intense heat is just going to make the “megadrought” in the western third of the nation even worse. At this point, an astounding 98 percent of the land in our western states is “abnormally dry”…
Unstoppable drought is rolling over California and the Western U.S. once again, as it has with little interruption since the new century began. Nearly 98% of land across 11 Western states is abnormally dry, and more than 90% is covered by some category of drought—the worst levels in the U.S. Drought Monitor’s 21-year history. Reservoirs have drained to their bottoms, leaving bath-tub rings on their shorelines. Rivers reduced to trickles are setting off conflicts for dwindling water rights. Millions of acres of trees and shrubs have turned from shade to fuel for the out-of-control blazes everyone predicts will come.
We have never seen anything like this before, and it is only going to get worse during the summer months.
But guess who absolutely loves hot, dry conditions like this?
Grasshoppers are having a field day, and U.S. authorities are getting ready for the largest outbreak of the little critters “since the 1980s”…
A punishing drought in the U.S. West is drying up waterways, sparking wildfires and leaving farmers scrambling for water. Next up: a plague of voracious grasshoppers.
Federal agriculture officials are launching what could become their largest grasshopper-killing campaign since the 1980s amid an outbreak of the drought-loving insects that cattle ranchers fear will strip bare public and private rangelands.
Many farmers in the western portion of the country that are already dealing with severe drought now have a new problem to contend with.
In central Montana, one farmer named Frank Wiederrick says that the grasshoppers are “everywhere” on his farm and are starting to eat everything in sight…
In central Montana’s Phillips County, more than 50 miles (80 kilometers) from the nearest town, Frank Wiederrick said large numbers of grasshoppers started showing up on prairie surrounding his ranch in recent days. Already they’re beginning to denude trees around his house.
“They’re everywhere,” Wiederrick said. “Drought and grasshoppers go together and they are cleaning us out.”
To combat this plague of grasshoppers, federal officials plan to start spraying large amounts of pesticides over thousands of square miles of prime farming territory.
So if you see a plane spraying a mysterious substance over your home in the near future, you might be about to get coated with very dangerous pesticides.
But officials insist that this must be done because otherwise, this plague of grasshoppers could get completely out of control.
In the end, they will probably be able to keep the grasshopper plague in check, but the damage that is done to other species will be incalculable.
Way too often, the “solution” that they come up with is far worse than the original problem, and I have a really bad feeling about all of this.

Pole is getting closer to happening. We are overdue and it will happen, the real question is when?
Pole Shift is getting closer to happening. We are overdue and it will happen, the real question is when?
At least we don’t have locusts plaguing us.
No pole shift. It means the aliens reptilians are coming out to greet us all as they love grasshoppers and people.
In some weather predictions, the higher pressure to the north is supposed to force damaging, tropical storms to the south, beginning Tuesday evening.
Every once in awhile, the sky over the desert looks like the grand finale on the 4th of July.
So, where does all this water go?
That is hot for sure.
But that is small beans compared to the temperature anomalies in Russia last year at this time. They recorded the highest temperature ABOVE the Arctic Circle ever (at least as far back as records) at over 100 F.
That’s over a thousand miles farther north than the Washington/Canadian border. Pikers…

The Sovereignty of God
God unilaterally makes the rules for He is the Sovereign Judge of all the earth and His creation.
Now let me ask this…Do you fear man….? do you fear death….? read on to know Whom to fear!
Fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge…
do I fear what is happening, no not all, for I know it is the will of the Lord. The Lord is the One who is Sovereign and He is the One who brings about all things. The written word of God is His revealed will, yet He does have a secret will that we cannot know until things unfold and we see for our own eyes what God is doing…and yes this is of God, whether you want to accept that or not makes no difference to me.
Can we use scripture to back up my claims…?
lets start with 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.
We are to learn from all scripture….now lets turn to the book of Acts and the book of Job:
Acts 17:26 and He made from one man, every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined [their] appointed times, and the boundaries of their habitation.
Job 12:23 “He makes the nations great, then destroys them; He enlarges the nations, then leads them away.
Both these verse, from the OT and NT back up what each says…so we see we can learn from the OT and the NT alike…
Are we something to God?…God needs nothing from us…for these words in Isaiah speaks this truth.
Behold, the nations are as a drop of a bucket, and are counted as the small dust of the balance: behold, He taketh up the isles as a very little thing. And Lebanon is not sufficient to burn, nor the beasts thereof sufficient for a burnt offering. All nations before Him are as nothing ; and they are counted to Him less than nothing, and vanity. To whom then will ye liken God? or what likeness will ye compare unto Him? (Isa 40:15-18).
How vastly different is the God of Scripture from the “god” of the average pulpit preached today!
The preachers of today are modern day Pharisees, they fill your ears with lies and tell you how good you are to keep the dollars following in…
leave the 501c3 church building and see for yourself that the Lord is God.
I always speak the hard verse that people don’t want to hear, yet God did not save me to only give half of Him, I preach the full counsel of the word of God, I leave nothing out…I do not sugar coat, for sugar coated preaching is dangerous to the soul.
Today we hear about the Love of God and yes we should for the epitome of Love is God for God is Love…yet the other side is the wrath of God and the indignation of God…yet all we hear today is the Love of God, which the devil has crept in the buildings to deceive even the elect.
Just a few scriptures from the Old and New Testament to ponder on.
Isaiah 45:7 The One forming light and creating darkness, Causing well-being and creating calamity; I am the LORD who does all these.
Amos 9:10 “All the sinners of My people will die by the sword, Those who say, ‘The calamity will not overtake or confront us.’
Amos 3:6-7 6 If a trumpet is blown in a city will not the people tremble? If a calamity occurs in a city has not the LORD done it?
7 Surely the Lord GOD does nothing Unless He reveals His secret counsel To His servants the prophets.
Psalm 9:17 The wicked will return to hell, Even all the nations who forget God.
John 3:18 He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
(the pastors of today want to preach John 3:16, but never get to John 3:18 for it does not suit their agenda)
John 3:36 “He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him.”
Hebrews 10:26-31 26 For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a terrifying expectation of judgment and the fury of a fire which will consume the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay.” And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God.
James 4:4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.
We are on the cusp of all out chaos / calamity. yet these time were spoken of long ago in the Holy Writ, the very word of God, the Son of God, God the Son said these days would come like birth pains upon a woman…they will begin slowly and then increase with intensity over time. God is angry and His patience has worn thin and judgment is coming upon us.
My point of this is to show God is the One who is in charge…like it or not. He will bring about His plan for it was spoken long before the foundation of the world was ever laid….and no man can or will ever stop it…for the Lord God sits in the heavens and does as He pleases.
To the true born again Christian, this should be comforting for we are in the palm of the hand of Jesus and His hand is wrapped by the Hand of the Father and no one can pluck us from His hand and when we die and all will die one day, we will be ushered in to glory with the society of saints….
and for those who don’t know Christ as Lord and Savior, well you to will one day die and it will be a differnt outcome for you will be cast into the Lake of fire burning with brimstone….Confess now that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart He was raised from the grave and be saved for the one who believes will not be disappointed.
I’ll leave you with the words of the beloved Lord and Savior, Christ Jesus.
Luke 12:5 But I will warn you whom to fear: fear the One who, after He (GOD) has killed, has authority to cast into hell; yes, I tell you, fear Him!
Receive Christ now and fear not.
Confess Jesus as Lord and believe in your heart He was raised from the grave and be saved from eternal suffering and torment.
Praise be to GOD, One in Three, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, to Him be the glory forevermore. in the precious name of Jesus, amen.
This is the part that Rogan and all the hipster podcasters are not getting.
Maybe inject yourself with a dose of I dont know fucking shit.
So hot I started leaving the toilet seat up just to get the wife’s icy stares…
