Cleveland seeking to buy riot gear for Republican National Convention

CLEVELAND, Ohio — Cleveland is seeking to buy 2,000 sets of riot gear, including riot-control suits and collapsible batons, as part of the city’s latest move to spend a $50 million federal security grant for July’s Republican National Convention.

The city this week posted to its contracting website a notice seeking bidders to provide the gear. City documents refer to the “Elite Defender” riot-control suit manufactured by HWI Gear and a 26-inch baton manufactured by Monadnock, plus 2,000 bags to carry them.

The city also wants to buy 310 sets of riot-control gear — long-sleeve jackets, gloves and shin guards —  that would be suitable for use by police riding bicycles. (Scroll to the bottom of this post to read the complete specifications for the riot gear.)

The city last week began ramping up its public process to spend the RNC security money, approved by Congress last December. The city previously has sought to buy 300 bicycles, 15 motorcycles, 25 sets of tactical armor and two horse trailers.

The city also has sought to rent about three miles of interlocking steel barriers, each 3.5 feet high, and buy another 3,250 feet of interlocking barriers that each would be 6.5 feet tall for the RNC, according to bid documents. In a brief interview on Thursday, city spokesman Dan Williams referred to at least some of these barriers as “bike racks,” although manufacturer Tamis Corp. markets the barriers, branded as “Blockaders,” as crowd-control devices.

The convention, scheduled for the week of July 18, is expected to attract 50,000 visitors to Cleveland. As part of its security plan, Cleveland is organizing a police force of 5,000 officers — the city is in the process of recruiting officers from surrounding suburbs and elsewhere to bolster its existing force of about 1,200. Previous conventions also have attracted political demonstrators, ranging from more than 100,000 for the 2004 RNC in New York City to less than 1,000 for the 2012 RNC in Tampa, Florida.

Because the RNC has been designated as a National Special Security Event, it is eligible to receive federal funding. Cleveland is planning convention security under the direction of the Secret Service.

City officials largely are not commenting on their convention-planning efforts.

However, Mayor Frank Jackson’s administration told City Council last month that the city plans to spend roughly $30 million of the federal grant on personnel, and $20 million on equipment. The delivery deadline for the equipment is June 15,Councilman Brian Cummins wrote on his blog last month.

Cleveland City Council President Kevin Kelley recently told cleveland.com that council hopes to hold a public security briefing with federal officials sometime in March or April. The officials though, would need to receive clearance first to do so, he said. source

Our Bibles Behind Bars Program Just Got A Request For 500 King James Bibles To Be Delivered To The Saint Johns County Jail Here In Saint Augustine

Because of your support, we are sending 500 King James Bibles to the Saint Johns County Jail here in Saint Augustine next week, praise the Lord!

Moments ago I finished a call with Corrections Chaplain Deon Johnson at the St. Johns County Jail here in Saint Augustine. I was connected to him through Sheriff Rob Hardwick who is the St. Johns County Sheriff. Chaplain Johnson explained that their facility holds just under 500 inmates, and they can get requests for up to 20 Bibles in a single day from the inmates. When I told him we could send him one Bible for every inmate, his voice took on a tone of heartfelt gratitude mixed with just a touch of happy disbelief. They are not used to receiving Bibles in such large numbers, and this is why the Bibles Behind Bars program is such a unique ministry.

“Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” Matthew 24:36 (KJB)

Because of your ongoing support of this ministry, we are getting to the place where I can approve 500 Bibles on the spot, knowing that the support is there to pay for the Bibles and for the shipping. Do you know what a blessing that is for me that we are building a solid base from which to operate? Well, let me tell you, it is a major blessing. In my mind’s eye, and in my daily prayers, I can see the day when we have our own warehouse, stocked to the roof with our NTEB branded King James Bibles, and sending them out anywhere and everywhere they are requested. In 4 years, we have said ‘yes’ to every request no matter how small or how large. Think about that.

For nearly 13 years, Now The End Begins has been known as one of the finest places online to get trustworthy end times news, and solid King James Bible teaching. But now when you mention NTEB to people, the reply invariably will be “oh, that’s the place where they’ll give you a free Bible”. Yeah, I think I like that reputation just as much, or maybe even a little bit more.

I have settled it with the Lord regarding this ministry in general and our free Bible program in particular, I am ‘all in’. I am devoting myself to this work 7 days a week, 10-12 hours per day, and am giving all the resources at my disposal to further the work. My time, my talents, whatever money I had, I have given it all and am trusting the Lord to sustain me. I have no retirement plan, no investments, no money squirreled away for a rainy day, nothing. Why? Because Jesus Christ is worth it all, every bit of it, and more. I’d like to ask you to pray for this ministry, and our Free Bible Program in particular. Pray that the Lord not only keeps it going, but keeps it growing. And if He has prospered you, I am asking you to give and give generously to this end times work. I believe the Lord will be calling us Home soon, but either way, I want to build something that will make it through the fire of the Judgment Seat of Christ. I am inviting you to come help us do just that. TO THE FIGHT!!!

Now The End Begins is your front line defense against the rising tide of darkness in the last Days before the Rapture of the Church

When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. We have a Gospel Billboard program. We are now broadcasting Bible studies, Podcasts and a Sunday Service 5 times a week, thanks to your generous donations. All this is possible because YOU pray for us, YOU support us, and YOU give so we can continue growing.

But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. The Lord has given us an open door with a tremendous ‘course’ for us to fulfill that will create an excellent experience at the Judgement Seat of Christ. Please pray for our efforts, and if the Lord leads you to donate, be as generous as possible. The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTTO THE FIGHT!!!

Wearing A Freaky Black Nylon Hood Over His Face, Kanye West Appeared On InfoWars With Alex Jones Praising Adolf Hitler And Trashing The Jews

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Kanye West praised Adolf Hitler during an appearance on Alex Jones’ InfoWars program on Thursday, December 1st.

Kanye West, having lost over $2 billion in contracts and endorsements due to his rabidly antisemitic statements about the Jews and Israel doubled-down today while appearing on a segment of InfoWars with Alex Jones. Not only did he confirm most of his previous antisemitism, he upped the ante by legitimately praising Adolf Hitler. You can only blame so much of this on being bi-polar, at this point, it’s fair to say he has an obvious and open agenda against the Jews and the nation of Israel. What does this have to do with Bible prophecy? Plenty.

“And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the LORD shall lead thee.” Deuteronomy 28:37 (KJB)

Jesus prophesied that in the last time, the Jews would experience something called the time of Jacob’s trouble, and we talk about that a lot here at NTEB. If we are as close to those days as I think we are, then persecution of the Jews is going to dramatically increase, which it has been for the past several years. Kanye West is obviously speaking for Satan when he says the things he says, praising Hitler and tearing down the Jews, but from a prophetical point of view, that’s right on the money. Did you know that Adolf Hitler was a perfect type of the biblical Antichrist? He sure was, and you should read that article.

Kanye West Tells Alex Jones: “I See Good Things About Hitler”

FROM YAHOO NEWS: “I see good things about Hitler,” West told Jones. “I love everyone and Jewish people are not going to tell me: You can love us and you can love what we’re doing to you with the contracts, and you can love what we’re pushing with the pornography. But this guy [Hitler] that invented highways and invented the very microphone that I use as a musician, you can’t say out loud that this person ever did anything good. I’m done with that,” he continued. “Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.”

The microphone was invented in 1877 by Emile Berliner. Depending on how we define “highway,” they are as old as the invention of the wheel, and were certainly common throughout the Roman Empire. Looking only at controlled-access highways for cars, the first highway is often cited as the Long Island Motor Parkway in Long Island, New York, which opened in 1908.

Later in the segment, West went even further in his praise, telling Jones: “I like Hitler.” He also claimed “the Jewish media has made us feel like Nazis and Hitler have never offered us anything of value to the world.”

At one point Jones pushed back at the torrent of antisemitism, saying “I think most Jews are great people,” but adding, “I agree there’s a Jewish mafia.”

West also spent time calling out Jewish people he believes have antagonized him, such as Ari Emanuel, CEO of Endeavor, his brother, former Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and Dave Chappelle, who he said was a “hack” for criticizing West on the “Jewish platform” Saturday Night Live. West even pulled out a net, which he claimed was longtime Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, in an apparent attempt at prop comedy.

Ye also took credit for popularizing antisemitism, saying, “No one in high school knew what antisemitic meant until Ye made it popular.”

The interview is West’s latest in a long line of disturbing and hateful antisemitic comments, and seems to confirm earlier reports that Ye has been a longtime admirer of Hitler. His bigotry has cost him the friendship of old allies such as Pusha T and newer ones like Donald Trump, as well as his partnership with adidas, $1.5 billion and his status as a billionaire, his wax figurines at Madame Tussauds, and his Donda Academy.

Emmanuel Macron Swoops Into Washington To Take Control Of The Political Narrative In First Official State Visit With Pretend President Joe Biden

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Following a pomp-filled welcome ceremony, Joe Biden and Emmanuel Macron entered the White House for their first bilateral meeting in the Oval Office.

As we head into the last days of 2022, can I ask you if you’ve been having a good year? We sure hope it’s been good, and that the Lord has been blessing you abundantly. But whatever you personal situation is, I know of someone who is having a verifiably good not just year, but the last few years as well. Emmanuel Macron, whose doom has been incorrectly prophesied many, many times, is stronger, more powerful and more influential than perhaps any other European leader in recent memory. Today he’s gracing Washington with his presence, and allowing pretend president Joe Biden to bask in his afterglow.

“…and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJB)

Riddle me this if you can. Of all the world leaders and heads of state that Pope Francis has met with since becoming the ‘vicar of Christ’ and the King of Vatican City in 2013, Emmanuel Macron is the man he’s met with the longest. Why? Wait! Before you answer that, when Mohammed bin Zayed became Supreme Ruler of the UAE after the death of his father, he insisted on meeting with Emmanuel Macron first before any other world leader. Why? Wait! Pretend president Joe Biden has been a Washington political prostitute for half a century, and has relations with dozens of world leaders. Yet, inexplicably, Emmanuel Macron is the first foreign leader Biden is hosting in an official state visit. Why? Wait, you already know the answer. See how smart you are?

Biden and Macron show united front ahead of bilateral meeting

FROM POLITICO: President Joe Biden and his French counterpart, President Emmanuel Macron, presented a united front at the White House on Thursday morning despite recently frayed ties between the longtime allies amid disputes over economic and national security issues.

“Stalwart friends in times of triumph and of trial, France and the United States will meet the future just as we always have, confident in our shared capacity, sustained by the strength of our shared values and undaunted by any challenge that lies ahead,” Biden said during a welcoming ceremony at the White House for Macron and his wife.

Macron’s arrival marks the first state visit of Biden’s administration, coming at a time when the United States and France — one of its oldest allies — face simmering tensions over issues plaguing the world, including Russia’s war in Ukraine and trade policies.

“The choices we make today and the years ahead will determine the course of our world for decades to come,” Biden said. “And the United States could not ask for a better partner in this work in France.”

Macron, during the pair’s bilateral meeting later Thursday, is expected to press Biden on the economic impacts of the now 10-month-long war in Ukraine — which has not only battered the global economy but also fueled an energy crisis in Europe. The French president and a number of other European leaders have recently shown some resistance to an expansion of the war and its inevitable economic toll on the continent.

In remarks from the Oval Office on Thursday just ahead of the bilateral meeting, the French president said Russia’s war on Ukraine “will be the first topic of discussion” for the two leaders.

“It’s extremely important to have close coordination between us on these different issues,” Macron said as he sat next to Biden. “We want to fix the direct and indirect consequences of the war on our economies and our people.”

Macron has openly accused the U.S. of using protectionist policies, with trade issues also expected to be a main topic of his and Biden’s bilateral meeting. The French president has specifically bristled against tax incentives for clean energy included in the Inflation Reduction Act — a move that European leaders fear could cause sectors of their own economies to shift operations to the United States.

“The choices made … are choices that will fragment the West because they create such differences between the U.S. and Europe, that those who work in these companies/industries will simply decide not to keep investing on the other side of the Atlantic,” Macron said during a speech at the French Embassy on Wednesday evening. “These choices can only work if there is coordination between us.”

They did, however, also both allude to the difficulties of solidifying Western unity amid growing global unrest. Biden pointed to both countries having to defend democratic values and universal human rights as they face down Russia’s brutal war on Ukraine, and Macron said the two democracies “are being shaken by the same doubts,” including climate issues, disinformation and hate speech.

France and the United States will celebrate 250 years as allies with President Macron arriving in Washington. Macron wants to convey Europe’s unhappiness with Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act.
