New ZetaTalk Earth Changes Announcements Signs of the Times

Australia Burning

All of Australia seems to be ablaze, particularly from the top of the East Coast to the bottom, but parts west are ablaze too. Vacationers have been driven to seek safety on the beaches, where they can dive into the water or be rescued by boat or choppers. But pity the poor roos and koalas, who are often burned alive. Could the odd hot water spike to the East of New Zealand relate? As usual, the Zetas explain.

Mysterious Hot Blob of Water off New Zealand Coast Baffles Scientists
January 2, 2020
There is a similar unknown phenomenon off New Zealand producing a spike in water temperature of up to 6°C above average across a massive patch of ocean east of New Zealand.
State of Emergency Declared in parts of Australia Ravaged by Wildfires
January 2, 2020
The fires are in part the result of a prolonged drought. The months of January through November were the second driest period on record since 1902.
It’s So Hot in Australia right now That Animals are Dropping Dead from Trees
December 24, 2019
Last week, horses were buried in meters of snow in Iceland. And today, animals are dropping dead from trees in Australia due to unprecedented temperatures.

ZetaTalk Insight 1/31/2020: Are the Australian fires raging across the entire country at the end of 2019 due to drought and heat? These factors contribute but the lift of the Indo-Australian Plate is also a factor. Just as the California fires are due in part to the subduction of the Pacific Plate pushing under California, Australia is dealing with plate movement consequences. As the Indo-Australian Plate is pushed under Tibet, it lifts at the New Zealand edge, creating a void under the plate that hot molten lava rushes to fill. This temporary river of lava is heating Australia and warmed ocean currents to the East of New Zealand.

Meanwhile, in nearby India, they are experiencing the coldest day on record for this date. Bizarre extremes continued for Europe, where Sweden experienced its warmest day on record for that date, and Iceland was so devastated by 145 mph wind and 10 feet of driving snow that livestock were buried up to their eyeballs. What is causing these extremes? This is a matter the Zetas have warned about since 2004, after Nibiru entered the inner Solar System – the Daily Earth Wobble.

India Cold Wave: Delhi Reels from Coldest Day in more than a Century
December 31, 2019
India's capital Delhi has recorded its chilliest day in more than a century amid a severe cold wave across the northern part of the country. It was the coldest day in Delhi since records began in 1901.
Scandinavia has Broken its Highest ever Winter Temperature Record
January 2, 2020
This is the highest temperature measured in January since the measuring station was established in 1923.
Snow is so Deep in Iceland Right Now that Farmers have to Dig Out Horses Buried Under It
December 13, 2019
A powerful blizzard swept Iceland with 149 mph winds and dropped more than 10 feet of snow.

ZetaTalk Insight 1/31/2020: The wild temperature swings and storms afflicting Europe and India are also due to Nibiru, a result of the Daily Earth Wobble. During the wobble the lean to the East and lean to the West occur when the Sun is high over the swath of the globe from Australia to Sweden. These leans bring both these regions temporarily closer to the Equatorial latitude, thus getting more sunlight. The violent swings create turmoil in the atmosphere, thus bringing cold air to India and a snow dump to Iceland. Such turbulence will increasingly be evident.

The Pope’s Ring

Pope Francis has been captured on video this past year pulling his right hand away, violently, from the public. Excuses have been offered - that he is trying to protect the public from the spread of germs in March or that his arthritic shoulder was hurt when a woman refused to let him go on New Year’s Eve, pulling on his right hand with both her hands. But is there more to this picture? He allows hand touch, but appears to be protecting his papal ring, the symbol of his position as Pope, which is on his right hand.

The Pope Really Doesn’t Want his Ring Kissed
March 26, 2019
Devotees all around the world are taking note, after a video emerged showing the pontiff repeatedly pulling his hand away from worshippers trying to peck his papal ring – a sacred symbol of the Pope’s union to the church. He was meeting members of the public after mass at the Basilica della Santa Casa – a shrine of Marian pilgrimage in the hill town of Loreto. He is seen smiling politely as he greets each person and shakes their hand, before snatching his own away as they bow to kiss the ring.
Pope Francis Apologizes after Slapping Away a Clinging Pilgrim
January 1, 2020
Pope Francis apologized for the flash of anger — or self-protection — that he exhibited while greeting the faithful around the Vatican’s giant Nativity scene after a New Year’s Eve liturgy. Francis can be seen reaching into the crowd and seeking the hands of children. As he turns away, a woman in the crowd grabs his right hand with both of her hands and yanks the 83-year-old pope back, causing him to momentarily lose his balance. Francis, visibly upset, slaps twice at the woman’s hands to free himself, rebuking her, and then angrily turns away.

ZetaTalk Insight 1/31/2020: Recent videos show Pope Francis reluctant to have the public hold his right hand to kiss his ring. Kissing the ring of the Pope is a long standing tradition of respect and homage, though both Francis and his predecessor tried to discourage this tradition. Was Pope Francis pulling his hand away from those wanting to kiss his ring a fear of spreading germs amid the masses, as claimed? If so, this concern did not emerge earlier when Pope Francis ceremonially kissed the feet of others and blessed the disfigured and afflicted, hugging and holding them.

Pope Francis fears assassination. Saint Malachy’s Prophecy of the Popes has placed Pope Francis as the last Pope, but it is not clear if this Pope will live through the End Times. Given the weight most Catholics place upon tradition, the tradition of defacing a Pope’s ring at his death carries great weight. Of course, this is assumed to be destruction of a Pope’s ring after his death, but what if the ring is defaced or destroyed prior to his death? There are many in the Vatican - intent upon keeping the public ignorant of the Third Fatima secret - who are looking for an excuse.

Pope Francis had routinely been wearing a silver ring when out in public, keeping his papal ring secure. But fearing assassination, he has recently taken to wearing his papal ring at all times. When the public grabs his hand and refuses to let go, he fears having his papal ring removed, if only for a moment. He fears this would be a signal given to those wanting to assassinate him. Symbolically removed as Pope by such an incident, he would be vulnerable. Thus his face shows fear and anger when the public aggressively grabs at his right hand or holds onto him.

Indeed, in the photos, it can be seen that Pope Francis has been wearing his papal Gold ring during 2019, a change from his prior routine to wear a Silver ring from his days as a cardinal when out in public. Pope Francis has never been shy about touching others, in fact embraces those considered disfigured and kissing the feet of those considered outcasts. During 2019, when wearing his Gold ring, he allows fingers to touch, but appears to be protecting his papal ring, the symbol of his power as Pope, during a hand grab.

Ring of the Fisherman
A new ring is cast for each Pope as a general practice in tradition. During the ceremony of a Papal coronation or Papal inauguration, the Cardinal camerlengo slips the ring on the ring finger of the new Pope's right hand. Since at least the middle ages it has been a tradition for Catholics meeting the Pope to show their devotion by kissing the ring. Pope Francis only wears a simple gold-plated silver ring for papal ceremonies, preferring to wear his small, silver ring from his days as a cardinal. Upon a papal death, the ring used to be ceremonially destroyed using a hammer in the presence of other Cardinals by the Camerlengo. Today, the destruction of the ring's device with deep scratches is a symbol of the end of rule of the pope who used to wear that ring.

Soleimani Drone Kill

Given Soleimani’s role in numerous terror attacks, per the Zetas, the only surprise was that it took so long for the US to target him. Middle East tussles are very much enveloped in battles between the Sunni and Shia factions, with Iran and Assad and Hezbollah being Shia and the Saudi and ISIS and the former Iraq leader Hussein being Sunni. Soleimani’s death by a US Reaper drone dramatically exposed the political divide in the US, and the End Time battles between President Trump’s Junta and the Cabal.

Trump Jabs Dems over Iran Reaction, Rages that 'Killer' Soleimani "Should Have Been Taken Out Years Ago!"
January 3, 2020
"He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number of protesters killed in Iran itself. While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. He should have been taken out many years ago!"
How Qassem Soleimani was 'Torn to Shreds' by a US missile and his Body had to be Identified by his Ring
January 3, 2020
Soleimani, commonly known as the second-most powerful man in Iran and tipped as a future president, was so badly maimed in the strike that he had to be identified by a large ring he wore on his finger. He had just landed in Baghdad airport on a plane around 12.30am when he was met on the tarmac by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. Moments later, as the cars passed through a cargo area headed for an access road leading out of the airport, the convoy was struck by missiles fired by an MQ-9 Reaper drone - a deadly unmanned aircraft that is designed primarily for offensive strikes.
How Trump Decided to Kill Iran’s Soleimani
January 3, 2020
For a man U.S. officials have portrayed as a terrorist mastermind, an evil genius responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans, Soleimani often flaunted his influence as he jetted between Tehran, Baghdad and Beirut for meetings with local potentates. The U.S. had "exquisite intelligence" on a plot to strike Americans in Iraq, Syria and Lebanon. By killing Soleimani they disrupted such plans.

The Bush family Iraq wars destabilized the region and resulted in the emergence of ISIS, which some in the Bush/Clinton Cabal encouraged. There are secret End Times agendas at play, and the Deep State is constantly trying to gain the upper hand. Why did Obama and his former Secretary of State Kerry dash around the globe operating as a Shadow Government after President Trump was elected? All is not what it seems. Obama partnered with Soleimani and Kerry was in Iran just this past Summer.

Obama Strikes a Deal - With Qassem Suleimani
July 14, 2015
From Obama’s perspective, the Sunnis aren’t going to stop ISIS—in fact, they helped create it. However, the Iranians can do it, and plenty of other things as well.
Rocket Attack at Baghdad Airport Kills Iranian Military Mastermind
January 3, 2020
Former Secretary of State John Kerry had been engaging in “Shadow Diplomacy”, otherwise known as conspiratorial sedition, by meeting with the Iranians in the desperate hope to somehow keep the lousy deal with the Iranians and his former Boss’ legacy intact.
John Kerry Rejects Pompeo’s Criticism over Meetings with Iran Officials
June 6, 2019
Kerry said it has been common practice for previous secretaries of state, U.S. senators and many others to continue having public discussions with people “as a matter of being well informed.”

ZetaTalk Comment 1/31/2020: If there is any mystery surrounding Soleimani’s death it is why there was such a long delay, as he was known to be the hand fomenting mischief in Iraq for years. Respected and feared even by Iran’s religious leaders, he walked openly throughout Iraq while conferring with his disciples. As is known, the Middle East is afflicted with religious battles between the Sunni and Shia factions. Iran and Assad, the leader of Syria, are Shia. Saudi Arabia, a US ally, is Sunni. Hussein, the deposed leader of Iraq was Sunni. ISIS was formed from the remnants of his guard when Hussein was deposed by the US.

Where not discussed openly in the media, there have been secret End Times wars where factions wanting ultimate control of Planet Earth try to foment World War III, via various means. Instigating religious battles, as was attempted during the Notre Dame arson, is one approach. Creating a major war between Iran and the US is another. McCain was executed by the Tribunals for assisting ISIS. Though Obama gave lip service to repressing nuclear development by Iran, sending a bribe of over 1.5 billion annually to Iran, no nuclear inspection followed. The Obama shadow government whispered to Iran that the good times would return.

Meanwhile, ISIS appeared to be defeated, but despite Baghdadi’s death in October there were hints that it was regrouping. Baghdadi, an acknowledged leader of ISIS, was Sunni. But the attack on the Baghdad embassy in December was done by Hezbollah, who are Shia and an Iranian ally. Thus with Hezbollah attacking Israel, a US ally, and the US strongly allied with the Sunni Saudis, the battle lines were drawn.

Soleimani had convinced himself that he was invincible, actually believing the reassurances from Obama’s shadow government that President Trump was soon to be removed and business as usual would return. Even Pelosi, during her cooperation with coup attempts, felt the US Military would turn on President Trump. Where does this leave Iran? Iran does not want war with the US, nor do China and Russia wish to see this outcome. Meanwhile, where the head of the snake among both Sunni and Shia backed terrorists has been removed, peace in the Middle East will continue to be elusive.

China in Africa

Is there a difference between the colonialism of the past, wherein Europeans ruled in parts of Africa, S America, and Indonesia and the current practice of helping under-developed nations build their infrastructure? Colonialism failed because maintaining order via a long reach became too expensive after World War I and II. But is there another side to China’s interest in Africa? The Zetas explain.

The Takeover: China is Building Enormous Self-Sustaining Chinese Cities all over the African Continent
December 31, 2019
Yes, the Chinese greatly desire African resources, but ultimately what they want is Africa itself. But instead of conquering Africa using military force, China is using economics instead. Today, more than 10,000 Chinese-owned firms are operating in Africa, and virtually every major road, bridge, railway and skyscraper is being built by the Chinese. As a result, most African nations are very deeply indebted to China at this point.
What Is China Doing In Africa?
August 4, 2018
While Africa accounts for about 30 per cent of the world's reserves of hydrocarbons and minerals and 14 per cent of the world's population, its share of global manufacturing stood in 2011 exactly where it stood in 2000: at 1 percent. Everything changed when China came along.
Skyscrapers, Trains and Roads: How Addis Ababa came to Look Like a Chinese City
September 3, 2018
Cars chug through the city on smooth Chinese roads, Chinese cranes lift the skyline, sewing machines hum in Chinese factories in Chinese-owned industrial parks, tourists arrive at the Chinese-upgraded airport and commuters ride modern Chinese trains to work. Simply put, Addis Ababa is becoming the city that China built -- but at what diplomatic and economic cost?

ZetaTalk Comment 1/31/2020: China’s involvement in the development of Africa is not colonization, as was done in the past by European countries. Colonization was a top-down takeover of a country, such that the country was owned and operated by the colonial power. They set the laws, plundered the resources, and suppressed rebellion brutally if need be. The cold hand of colonial occupation was only stopped because it became difficult for European countries to maintain their grip after two World Wars had depleted their strength.

Does China have an expansionist agenda in Africa? Obviously. China has 1.4 billion people, and thus with only 6.3% of the globe’s land mass China has struggled with starvation in the past. Africa also has 1.3 billion people but has 20% of the globe’s land mass. Despite vast deserts, Africa has natural resources and land that lays idle. China’s leaders are obviously aware of and respect the ZetaTalk predictions on the coming Pole Shift and resulting new geography, as the placement of their inland Ghost Cities shows. Africa will be solidly above the waves and will have a temperate climate throughout.

At present, China is acting as an engineering or construction firm, offering services for hire, or establishing businesses in Africa while employing Chinese expertise. These are standard business practices throughout the globe. How might this change as the Earth changes progress? We have predicted that Europe will migrate toward Africa after the Pole Shift, because Europe will become a series of islands. We have predicted that the lands to the west of India will likewise migrate toward Africa, to escape the brutal cold of the new S Pole at India. China will have established a foothold in Africa, and will migrate some of its populace before the Pole Shift, thus gaining the advantage.
