Prophecy in the News: January 2024

In a new survey, Putin was dealt a blow on the popularity of the Ukraine War. The poll, conducted by the Russian Field Agency, showed that approximately 40% of Russians said that they would cancel their country’s invasion of Ukraine. The poll was based on phone samplings of 1,600 Russians in mid-January. Polling analysis believe that this number will only grow as the war drags on and Russian soldiers are killed in ever growing numbers. Russia invaded Ukraine in February of 2022 with 330,000 troops. As of January 2024, Russia has lost 300,000 troops. It is estimated that between 50 to 60% were killed and the rest discharged from duty due to the severity of their wounds. Russia has also lost approximately 6,000 tanks, 12,000 personnel carriers, 328 planes and 324 helicopters (war.ukraine.ua). Putin stated that Russia held a successful voluntary recruitment campaign in 2023 by enlisting 486,000 soldiers. This number also includes the enlistment of prisoners. However, it was not clear if their enlistment was voluntary, or if they were shown a “four story window”.

Putin also finds himself in a weakened position with China one of his few remaining allies. A one-sided agreement was struck that Russia would sell its' oil to China at discounted rates and that Russia would buy more Chinese products at full price to replace those unavailable through Western embargos. But, China has not committed to buying Russian products in return as they fear more sanctions from the U.S.. China has also not endorsed Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and will not be giving Russia significant military assistance in 2024. China has made it clear that they will not be investing in Russia. International banks continue to cut ties with Russian businesses due to a failing Russian economy. This means that the bleed out of the Russian economy has been slowed but still continues. Europe and the U.S. have agreed to send $129 billion dollars in military and humanitarian aid to Ukraine. This will support a Spring offensive by Ukraine to regain territory annexed by Russia in 2014.

Putin is very frustrated concerning military progress on the front lines. It seems that in order to advance on Ukraine, the troops must gather in large numbers. But, each time this happens, Ukraine sends in cheap hobby drones that have proven to be extremely effective in killing troops and destroying tanks. Even trying to organize far behind the battle lines is difficult as Ukraine is aware of these movements and quickly sends in the drones. Russia is struggling to find a way out of this military stalemate. They have determined that their only resort is to start so-called “meat grinder” assaults in the Spring. This is when very large numbers of Russian troops suffer steep causalities as they attempt head-on attacks. The sheer number of charging bodies overwhelms Ukraine’s abilities to kill that many troops at one time. Thus, the defensive line is penetrated and Ukraine must fall back.

Putin is also frustrated as Feb 24th marks the two year anniversary of his invasion of Ukraine, and he is running for office on March 17th. However, he is running unchallenged as those who were going to run against him have dropped out … of "four story windows".

Taylor Swift is apparently big on the number 13. She sites fifty times that the number 13 has been involved in her career. For example, Swift makes $13 million per concert, 76% of fans are female and 7+6=13.(Taylorswift.fandom.com/wiki/13)

I know I feel safer...?

Just when you thought online scams could not get any lower, there is a new one. It called Sextortion. It involves adult hackers finding sexually explicit pictures privately sent from one minor to another.

Theses signs advertise everything from churches to gentleman’s clubs featuring exotic dancers whose provocative pictures and names are on the signage.

Last year, over three million immigrants entered the United States illegally. Conversely, tens of thousands of the world’s brightest foreign exchange students attended ivy league universities to learn and further the development of cutting edge technologies. Yet, upon graduation, they were all escorted to the airport and immediately sent back to their country of origin as they were here on temporary student visas. Go figure.
