Re: CS Evaluation: Are These ‘Billions’ Of Locusts Threatening To Create A Horrific End-Times-Scenario In East Africa? Michael Snyder, Charisma

CS Evaluation: Is this really a ‘horrific End-Times scenario?’
First of all, Snyder alludes to this as more proof that his theory that the ‘perfect storm’ (spoken of by prophetic figure John Paul Jackson, evaluated elsewhere on this site) is here. We do not believe this is correct for a number of good reasons, as we’ve noted elsewhere.
Though the Coronavirus looks like it may be more serious than SARS of a few years ago, there is still no concrete evidence that it will turn into the next global pandemic. SARS mortality rate was 10%; Coronavirus mortality rate is 2-3%. But the mortality rate of flu is only .5% and it kills 80,000 in the US alone annually so any virus creates fear. Word that the corona-contagious stage may occur for 2 weeks before symptoms appear has not been verified or affirmed by the CDC. If this materializes, the virus will be more worrisome. So, let us examine the claim of the title of the article itself.
One of Snyder’s impeccable sources is the always accurate and unbiased (we jest), Al-Jazeera, who claims in one quote, “The locust invasion is the biggest in Ethiopia and Somalia in 25 years, and the biggest in Kenya in 70 years, according to the FAO. Even cows are wondering what is happening.” We weren’t aware that humans could read the minds of cows, but apparently some can. As even the quote itself shows, these swarms have happened before, even at this size. As films as diverse in time and genre as Lawrence of Arabia and Hidalgo show, locust swarms in Africa and the Middle East are pretty common.
As another one of Snyder’s sources tells us, we can be sure that ‘climate change’ has caused the locusts. They know this because the United Nations has assured them this is true. And we have no reason to doubt the UN, that mafia-like run international organization that takes advantage of billions of dollars of US taxpayer money and supports dictatorships around the world (we jest, again). Also note that the source above is a reprint of an AP release – the AP is notoriously liberal even thought the source Snyder uses that reprints it, the NY Post, is not.
In summary, yes the swarms are ‘bad,’ but this is the third time since 1950 this has happened in Africa. The last bad one was between 2003 and 2005. Not exactly ‘unusual.’
Snyder’s article first appeared in his Economic Collapse Blog, so nope, no bias there (again, we jest) – except for confirmation bias. When you are looking for something, you will find it and convince a segment of like-minded ignorant people in the population that you are on to something.
As we show in other sections of this site, the ‘Perfect Storm’ is more than just a little here, a little there – it is a confluence of multiple crises in every major area: religious, economic, geo-political, and weather. We may be beginning to get there, or on the edge of something, but we are not there completely, and we are not there yet – so don’t sell your homes, flee to the mountains with your guns and gold, hole up and pull out your documentaries on Ruby Ridge or Waco, TX, just yet.
On the other hand, we embrace the seriousness of the prophetic and of warnings from those like John Paul and it is always good to be prepared, and/or to start preparing. It is all about timing and we believe that, though things appear bad in a few areas right now – and things are definitely building – the time of the ‘Perfect Storm’ is not quite here.
