Whats going on in america it is becoming a war zone Over the last 2-3 days we have had  have been plane crashes oil tankers exploding a bus crash in Spain murders all over America as the country descends into lawlessness in Egypt they have a civil war brewing in syria the war continues, Obama is engulfed with scandal after scandal and still he survives every day the stories from the financial world get worse but its all kept quiet as main stream refuses to report any of it . we have to ask what is going on what spirit has been unleashed not just in america but all over the world as lawlessness and collapse seems to be engulfing country after country. Financial-political economical-real wars spreading civil unrest- and all this as the signs in the heaven increase. we can only hope whatever will happen it will happen quickly so as we can recover quickly although the people who are fomenting all of this are dragging it out to make it as bad as they can just before they crash the whole worlds financial system.

.The Chicago Tribune lists the details of the some of the gruesome shootings:

At Stroger [Cook County Hospital] were: a woman, 72, with a wound to an ankle; a woman, 41, with a wound to her right thigh; a man, 43, with gunshot wounds to the leg and back; a man, 45, shot in the penis and right thigh; and a man, 48, shot in the leg and buttocks. At Mount Sinai were: a man, 31, shot in the wrist, and a woman, 20, shot in the right leg. Police described all the victims as having had their conditions stabilized.


Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy issued a press release in June boasting of the more than 2900 firearm seizures the department had made in 2013:

“We continue to achieve significant decreases in murders, shootings, and overall crime this year, yet there are too many illegal guns on our streets,” said Superintendent McCarthy. “The passage of significant legislation in Springfield last week requiring reporting the loss and theft of guns is an important step forward and there’s more work to be done to keep illegal weapons off our streets.”


Despite the seizures, and technically lower overall crime statistics for the year, of which Mayor Rahm Emanuel and McCarthy consistently remind Chicagoans, the murder ratesince early May is rivaling the same period for 2012’s year-long bloodbath in the city of Chicago.

For the 28 days leading up to this past Father’s Day weekend–another bloodbath itself, in which 46 were shot and 8 were killed, including one shot by a police officer–murder numbers matched 2012 exactly with 41. Chicago Police data show that in the two weeks following, another 27 were gunned down and killed.
