Amazon Is Making a Big Play to Bypass UPS and FedEx

Several news sites have ran this story over the past two days. Spencer Soaper from Bloomberg has leaked documents showing Amazon Is Making a Big Play to Bypass UPS and FedEx. The story was also on Bloomberg TV here is a link to the video.

Anyway this news is in dramatic contrast to statements made by Amazon at the end of January saying basically the opposite that Amazon not looking to replace the likes of UPS and FedEx

Okay that was a dramatic contrast to the rumors going around in November and December of 2015 saying things like…

A Secretive Air Cargo Operation is Running in Ohio and Amazon Seeks Cargo Planes for Air Freight Operation and Is Amazon Plotting an Air War on FedEx? It just wouldn’t be a rumor without Amazon talking directly to Boeing which is what the Seattle Times reported here Amazon in talks to lease Boeing jets to launch its own air-cargo business.

We have all seen this before. I have been suspicious for a while that what we are witnessing here is a winner take all game in play here. I have not had any evidence to support my theory and Amazon straight out denied it in their January 29th statement but now here we have some hard evidence. I suspect the actual airlines involved are taking this very seriously.

The Public has a short to medium term amount of time to enjoy dramatically lower air freight costs. (free shipping!!) This might not turn out how anyone thinks. Air wars have a way into turning into scorched earths. Anyway I am watching this intently as I have a direct interest. I hope everyone stays safe and calm as our entire industry may be getting tossed into the fray here soon. For now,

Much Aloha!


Swell of the year about to go off in Hawaii

This Wednesday a very large swell is expected to arrive and last all day, at heights above 20 ft. This means the Waimea Bay in memory of Eddie Aikau contest is on. Not much can be said that hasn’t already been said but I did want to post a image of the storm that is sending us these waves.

The purple colors are hurricane force winds and the arrows show the direction of the energy. As you can see, Hawaii is in the the perfect location. Hawaii is far enough away to miss the actual storm and all it’s wind, but close enough to get ALL the energy.

If you are interested more in how weather and swell work, a fantastic explanation is already available at THE MECHANICS OF WAIMEA BAY is a 26 page graphic explanation of everything you ever wanted to know about how big waves work.

Northrop Grumman Super Bowl Ad 2016

The Northrop Grumman YouTube channel just uploaded this years Super Bowl advertisement.

At 8 seconds into the ad, they tell us they are now “invisible”. At 14 seconds they tell us this is “not the future it’s the present”. At 20 seconds they say “our dream has become reality” and we should “just wait” to see it. That is also what they name the video, “Just Wait”.

This isn’t the first time Northrop Grumman has advertised during the Super Bowl. This is a similar commercial they ran last year. It appears they are only updating us. It is my opinion prototypes of these next generation stealth aircraft are already flying. Here is last years Super Bowl Ad. Notice they use the word “invisible” again.

I am a regular visitor to Tyler Rogoways “Foxtrot Alpha” blog and he posts here that this is the “6th Generation fighter” Northrop Grumman wants the Pentagon to buy. It is speculated by Foxtrot Alpha and many others that this aircraft has next generation stealth, laser targeting, defensive bubbles, offensive turrets and other sci-fi like technology.

Oddly enough Chris Carter and gang are back at the X-files as of a week ago. Episode 1 of the new 2016 X-files features their version, albeit a bit more fantastic version of how companies like Northrop Grumman could have a cloaking technology and other futuristic weapons systems ready to go. If you are one of the “hidden in plain sight” conspiracy type then you might think we have had this technology since the 1940s. Chris Carter has nailed a few things before, and Science Fiction as a genre has always been predictive. I just thought I would throw this in with the timing and all. That being said, I don’t believe in Aliens or the X-files / Chris Carters version of his-story. Personally, I think it’s just really fun television.

Of course the Nazi’s had the carbon skinned, incredibly stealth, batwing shaped Horton 229 flying already towards the end of WWII. You can watch this last video and decide for yourself which of the “modern” stealth aircraft or demonstrators the Horton 229 most looked like. It’s difficult to conceptualize that the Nazis figured out stealth on their own with pencils and slide rulers but the evidence is clear, that exactly what happened.

That’s about all I have, enjoy your Super Bowl and keep an eye out for these really revealing commercials and show them to your friends.

The Emerging Laodicean Church, False Teachers, Hillsong United, and Celebrity Evangelism

Recently there has been a bit of what I could call an epiphany in how I see Christianity today. I have always had an sensitive personality when it comes to scams and deception, in and out of the church. Sometimes I know when I’m being lied to right away, sometimes i’m also a little more gullible and it takes 25 years for me to figure it out.

As students of the Bible, we have always been aware of the prophecy to the 7 churches in the Book of Revelation mirroring the history of the church. Hal Lindsey, Tim Lahaye and many others often want to claim that “we” are the church of Philadephia and the Laodecian church are all those future sinners in the Tribulation period. We are taught that “we” aren’t those lukewarm Laodecians, right? Were all going up in the rapture right? We are the good guys? right? right?

Well lets take a fresh look at the evidence again. Start with the actual text of the Book of Revelation. The Lord tells us he willanoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see“. (say a quick prayer here, ask the Lord to give us holy wisdom, annoint our eyes, and show us the truth, according to His promised Word, Amen)

And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and [that] the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. [Rev 3:14-22 KJV]

For most of my Christian walk I was probably 75-80% certain that prophetically speaking, I was in a “Church of Philadelphia” and the Laodecian church was something yet future. Maybe it is, maybe I was right, but at this time I am becoming more and more convinced that the Laodecian church is here right now. This post will explore that possibility and present evidence to support this assertion. It is not meant to be an exhaustive study, but I will provide outside links at certain points and enough hard evidence along the way to make my case. It is my intent to open this topic up for discussion. Light is always clarifying. Secrecy and hiding things from the membership or congregation suggests darkness is at work. if you are reading this and your salary is paid for by a church you should be doubly concerned. What does the Bible teach?

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove [them]. [Eph 5:11 KJV]


The last few years, I was attracted to the teaching of Jonathan Cahn, author of the “Harbinger” book and video series. I first heard about him through advertisements that would pop on my news feeds coming from “World Net Daily”, (WND) a somewhat sensationalist book selling website. I knew WND primarily sold books and my antennas should have been up, but I fell for it. The entire Isaiah 9:10 prophecy, and how it was repeating itself in the USA after September 11, 2001 was very creepy. Jonathan would describe it as a “mystery”, it was kind of like a “Christian X-file”. I would not buy any of his books but I watched and shared his videos.

I-am-not-sayingJonathan Cahn was always very careful in his books and videos to say he is not setting any specific dates or times and that none of us could “put God in a box” but then just like Giorgio Tsoukalos the False History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” guy, Jonathan Cahn would say, “i’m not setting any dates, but the crash will begin on September 15th 2015″.

That sounded to me like he was setting a date but maybe not. So on September 16th, 2015 when nothing tangible happened, Jonathan Cahn fans were able to say “meh, he never set any dates” and go along following his videos.

I remained subscribed to Jonathan Cahn’s YouTube feeds but my alert level went up a notch. I kept kept watching but now purely from a watchman perspective, I stopped sharing his videos but confess I was one of the people who thought “meh he didn’t set any dates”. I didn’t rush to judge him or label him a “cahn man” right away like others but I had a genuine curiosity now as to how he would handle himself now that the 2015 “Shemiteh” dates had passed. I still gave him the benefit of the doubt at that time, regardless of the September date passing.

bakkersdozenntitledIt was around a month later, sometime in November 2015 when Jonathan Cahn was back on the Jim Bakker show (yes, the same disgraced 1980′s televangelist Jim Bakker formerly married to and now divorced from Tammy Faye Bakker). Jim Bakker and Cahn were having a “Bakers dozen” sale of Cahn’s book.

Now, November was barely a month after the no show “Mystery Shemiteh” in September, I thought to myself, can the people in the audience be any more gullible than this? So, when any remaining stocks of the book should be tossed into the recycle bin, now, instead of selling just one book at a time, Jim Bakker is telling everyone to order 13 of them at a time? Are you kidding me? My alert meter pegs out now and needless to say, I am very disappointed with Cahn. He is nothing more than a book peddler to me now more than a true preacher at this point.

So here I am, I STILL did not want to toss the Cahn man baby out with the Bakkers dozen bath water. I held back any judgement, but I have now lost interest as a viewer completely. I didn’t unsubscribe to his YouTube feed but I wasn’t watching him at all anymore. That was until a few days ago when a new video came across his feed which would be the final straw for me.

I can’t say I was surprised this past week when I saw the new video come up. Jonathan Cahn was right there sharing the table with the known apostate and arch heretic word faith con artist Kenneth Copeland. Kenneth Copeland has long been blaspheming God. Since the 1980′s this FALSE TEACHER has been saying that we are God ourselves and Jesus was born again in hell (…for the record, Jesus DID NOT go to Hell for 3 days when he died, He went to Paradise) and other heresies that only gullible Americans would buy into such as speaking into existence whatever we want from cash and groceries to lear jets and stretch limos. I wouldn’t be seen in the parking lot of a Kenneth Copeland show let alone be in the audience or share his pulpit!

A lot of Christians are asking themselves today what in the world is Jonathan Cahn thinking?

I think the answer is obvious. Did Jonathan Cahn not self proclaim himself as “The Harbinger man”? Has he not himself BECOME the Harbinger?

This is where the light went off for me the last week. This is where I had my epiphany, “The Laodecian church is here”. I thought.


We now must take a long hard look at “Christian Music” these days and be honest with ourselves. Let’s start with the internationally renown Hillsong United, whose songs are played in churches world wide. Is this really worship glorifying to God? Is the congregation being directed to praise and worship God in heaven or are we looking at the stage and only being entertained, are we possibly even being seduced into something other than Biblical Christianity? Why does Hillsong United’s stage sets appear no differently than those of Lady Gaga, Beyonce, etc? One does not need to go far for multiple examples of this but here are a few to begin with.

Why are some Hillsong concerts nothing short or erotic idolatry and why do many otherwise solid churches (including Calvary Chapels) tolerate this infiltration? Here is another video exposing Hillsong United’s occultic imagery imbedded within their music.

Why is Hillsong NYC pastor Carl Lentz hanging out with rapper and Allister Crowley follower Jay-Z and saying he is having an illuminati meeting? “Kinda Wierd” is putting it lightly.

Karl Lentz is not alone in the Hillsong United / Emerging Church movement. Hillsong’s very leader Brian Houston has also crossed the line by openly promoting “Chrislam” and claiming Muslims actually serve the same god as us.

Hillsong Church Leader Brian Houston Teaches Chrislam from Now The End Begins on Vimeo.

A day later Brian Houston quickly denied saying it but watch the video yourself. Decide for yourself if he said it or not, what he means, and if you think he is sincere or not. Everyone has their own free choice and ultimately I really don’t care what people around me believe but we all have the same evidence. Do not be so naive to believe these false teachers telling us we all serve the same God.

This is what is referred to as the “emerging church”. It is non confrontational, purpose driven, easy believe-ism and a lie from the pit of Hell.

One by one, churches all around us are falling for it.

I am genuinely and sincerely alarmed that the church as a whole is already in the latter process of being infiltrated and is now diving headlong into the “emerging church” ecumenical one world movement and am ready to rethink everything I know.


These are just a few brief examples of what I am talking about when I say “celebrity evangelism”. Jonathan Cahn, Jim Bakker, Kenneth Copeland, Rick Warren, all of Hillsong United, Carl Lentz, Brian Houston etc all fall into the jet setting, limousine riding, private security, lovers of self celebrity crowd. They are just the tip of the iceberg. but this never happens at any of the good churches, right? right?

A quick way to determine if your favorite preacher (or one of their kids) is a celebrity evangelist, just take a look at their Facebook feed. And if by some chance your pastor is NOT on Facebook, you just might be in a good church! Give that man a hug this Sunday! I assure you he needs it.

So… For now, this is just a test post to see if anyone is reading. If you have come this far please leave a comment and share your thoughts.

Interisland update, Mark Dunkerly, Hawaiian Airlines & the Garden Island News

Mark Dunkerly, the CEO of Hawaiian Airlines had the opportunity to visit the island of Kauai and spoke at a Kauai Chamber of Commerce luncheon. The Garden Island News responded by writing a story that seems to be a tongue in cheek jab right back at Hawaiian’s most illustrious of all executives.

“Hawaiian Flying High” was the hazily sublimed title of the article.

Mark Dunkerly adressing Kauai Chamber of Commerce

“Flying between the islands of the state is a bargain that is quite, quite, quite remarkable”

OK, one thing for certain is that Hawaiian does not spend nearly enough money advertising with the Garden Island News. A center spread once or twice a week or even a daily banner across the front page advertising Hawaiian’s low fares to Kauai just might solve the problem with this reporters opinion. Most large corporations have huge advertising budgets with the local papers to help curtail unwanted criticism. I’m just saying, everyone else does it.

Well, I would like to give Mr Dunkerly a fair shake. The entire visit to Kauai seems to be an attempt by Dunkerly at defusing building tensions over perceived high airfares with local travelers. So I ask my readers this. Is the criticism of Hawaiian Airlines fair? Are the airfares too high?

I would like to offer a suggestion. Let us pick the easiest “fact check” the normal lay person like me can verify. Rising government taxes and highway projects are hard for us to translate into tangible “yes or no” facts. However there is one thing that Dunkerly claimed that is very easy for us to verify.

According to the article Mark Dunkerley said they have “an average fare one way of $69″ 



Well there is an easy number to verify. Go to and check their published one way fares from Honolulu to Lihue and lets all see how easy the $69 average fares are to book. $69 average means there will be fares LOWER than $69 so this is an outright bargain for a one way flight on a jet anywhere. Using the word AVERAGE suggests any of us should be able to find a lower than $69 fares.

Verifying this is easy for anyone to do. Mark seems like a brilliant executive and I can’t imagine he would put out a number like this without it being triple verified.

After a quick check I do see a few $72 fares on the early morning flights (5:14 AM & 5:56 AM only) which is actually a $58 fare with $14 in taxes and fees which comes out to $72. Today is the 7th of January and the earliest I could find a $72 fare is the 19th so 12 days out. Not bad at first glance but do the rest of the facts check out? Is this really an “average” fare and how easy is it to secure a booking at this fare on “AVERAGE“.

Now hopefully we get some readers to comment. I know this isn’t exactly USA Today but anyone out there reading this with an opinion, please feel free to speak your mind.

Paris Terror Attacks and the Eagles of Death Metal

(UPDATED towards end of post)

Sundays are typically my day of rest (when possible), and my catch up day for the weekly news. Today, I expected the standard fare from my regular news venues and couldn’t help but notice the name of the band that was playing during the Paris theater shooting on Friday night.

The “Eagles of Death Metal”? Really? Now I am a child of the 80′s so that immediately caught my attention. I never heard of them before but evidently they are pretty big. They seem to have no problem selling out large venues. They have been interviewed by Rolling Stone magazine and performed on Jay Leno and Conan O Brian before.

So here I am on my “day off” attempting to catch up on the “war on terror” news and instead I am watching, in it’s entirety, a previously recorded LIVE “Eagles of Death Metal” concert.

Click below and meet the band!

Lead singer Jesse “The Devil” Hughes is an ordained minister with a very “intimidating and problematic” personality according to another interview

Click on this image for a hyperlink below taking you to a google search of all their albums and art work. This artwork on this album is supposed to be a play on the old Loverboy Get Lucky album with “fingers crossed behind my back” but with devil horns instead. Their other album covers are a bit more racy.

Eagles of Death Metal

Eagles of Death Metal Albums

They have a song called “speaking in tongues” where at one point the singer mockingly goes off into incomprehensible babble, and another song called “I really want to be in L.A.” which starts out with “I came to L.A. to make rock ‘n’ roll, Along the way I had to sell my soul“. Well there you have it gang. I am very curious to know what song was playing when the shooting began. I cannot identify what song they are playing here, but this is a short video of the moments when the shooting began just posted on warleaks. My heart breaks for the members of this band and whatever dark things they have seen. I mourn for all the dead, together with all of France and Europe.

These guys are the exact kind of edgy, in your face American rockers I grew up with in my youth. Front man Jesse Hughes claims that Roger Waters from Pink Floyd asked him to boycott Israel and I cheer Jesse Hughes’ response. Some of the things he says makes me think he might be a bit confused, possibly a backslidden Christian believer. He said in one interview, “The theory of evolution is for fools who believe in “magical talking monkeys.”

Well, I prefer to stick with facts so this is as far as I go. They are very talented musicians and I am glad they survived the Paris show.

UPDATE — I have figured out exactly what song they are playing during the shootings. it is called “kiss the devil”.  I also have determined they are doing a guitar solo that takes place after the first 1:20 seconds of this song. Here is a video of the exact same song played the night before in Glasgow. I am posting a linked image of their setlist and the lyrics that had been sung up until the moment of the massacre. Take note of the name of the last song on the setlist which was “cut by terrorist attacks and shootings“.

“Kiss the devil” lyrics kissthedevil

Who’ll love the devil?…
Who’ll sing his song?…
Who will love the devil and his song?…
I’ll love the devil!…
I’ll sing his song!…
I will love the devil and his song!…
Who’ll love the devil?…
Who’ll kiss his tongue?…
Who will kiss the devil on his tongue?…
I’ll love the devil!…
I’ll kiss his tongue!…
I will kiss the devil on his tongue!…


So with the Eagles of Death Metal (EODM) being so popular, it is a certainty that their fans in the sold out crowd knew and sang along with the lyrics. The guitar solo in the video is at about 1:22 so these lyrics above has already been sung. What a sad thing to realize the last thing many of those EODM fans in that concert said before being blown away by ISIS terrorists was “I will kiss the devil on his tongue”.

May God have mercy on their souls.

Please feel free to comment. Much Aloha!

Confirmed: Facebook is Stalking You


Adios Facebook

Before any of you accuse me of being nuts or paranoid, and just to prove I stand in good company, I offer a link to The New York Post who is pretty much saying the exact same thing in their article here, Yes. Facebook is stalking you.

I have always been suspicious that Facebook censors my posts. I always knew many of my friends and family could not see some of the things I posted. I started to see a pattern. I first thought it was just me being narcissistic, but turns out I was right.  According to The Electronic Frontier Foundation Facebook actually does censor our posts.

This is what they do and I suspect they do even more. In my opinion, I suspect that there are addictive and seductive codings inserted into the raw backbone of the facebook programming. This is why many of us can’t quit or need to keep checking it every waking moment of each and every day. We are far beyond any requirement for “proof” about the censorship portions. Facebook is openly attempting to manipulate the way we think.


James Poniewozik NY Times Critic exposes FAKE story about “angry Christians and stupid Starbucks cups”.

For example, if you like or share an obviously fake story from some shock jock hating on stupid starbucks cups and then bashing Christians, it goes viral everywhere you get top spots on Facebook. TOP SPOTS for fake news! Throw up something conservative or a Christian video or some actually relevant news and it get buried almost instantly by Facebook’s coding and algorithms, if not cut off completely.

Nobody likes a stalker. It creepy and dangerous for everyone. Why do we let Facebook keep expanding the list of things it knows about us and the ways its willing to use that data to make them billions of dollars of revenue? For our entertainment? Not a good enough reason! When did our own entertainment become the most important thing for us so much that we are willing to give away EVERYTHING ELSE? Folks, have we all lost our minds? Will they ever stop or keep expanding? Where does it go from here?

I have determined this Friday the 13th is going to be bad luck for Facebook. I am cutting off the stalker permanently on that day. I’m not going to make this a long post. Just sending a couple more salvos to the stalker before I retreat completely.

Much Aloha

ICBM Launch last night off Los Angeles – VIDEO

First the headline on Drudge Report yesterday warned, “US Military Closing Airspace around LAX” or something dramatic. I can’t remember his exact words but next time i’ll try to remember to screenshot his headline.

I guess So Cal residents were “freaking out” last night as they were about to be Nuked or invaded by Aliens or suffer some other Hollywood Blockbuster worthy event as CNN reports here. Reports flooded twitter, facebook and YouTube that there was a big bright blue UFO exploding over Los Angeles last night like in this video below.

PROFANITY ALERT Turn down your volume if you have kiddies around or just prefer not to hear the swearing. While these Los Angelinos insist “it had to be a UFO” there is another explanation. (the “explosion” starts at about 1:09)

Here is the the Navy’s official statement on the event from the Third Fleet’s Cmdr. Ryan Perry via Channel 7, an NBC affiliate in San Diego:

“Navy Strategic Systems Programs conducted scheduled Trident II (D5) missile test flight at sea from USS Kentucky, an Ohio Class SSBN, in the Pacific Test Range off the coast of Southern California. The tests were part of a scheduled, ongoing system evaluation test. Launches are conducted on a frequent, recurring basis to ensure the continued reliability of the system. Each test activity provides valuable information about our systems, thus contributing to assurance in our capabilities.

The missile was not armed. Strategic Systems Programs does not routinely announce missile testing. Information regarding the test launch of Trident II (D5) missiles is classified before the launch.”


Artist conception of Ohio Class Sub launching an ICBM

The US Navy explanation seems to check out. Other bloggers have screenshots of last night which show the entire area between Pt Mugu and Santa Cruz Island offshore blocked off by the US Navy and the USS Independence Combat Littoral Ship patrolling the area. The USS Kentucky was underwater and the launch of the ICBM probably would have been much more impressive from the bridge of the Independence than any YouTube video.

Incentivizing Interisland Airline Competition

The Garden Island News has published an article about Kauai County Council asking state lawmakers to explore incentivizing interisland airline competition in the State of Hawaii. The Star Advertiser and KITV have also reported on this proposal, along with others.

I like the spirit of the “Unconquered Island” lawmakers, but lets just stop for a minute right here. The whole proposal has several problems.

First here are a few snippets.

Councilman Ross Kagawa, who introduced the resolution said, “We need to speak up already. Right now this is a serious problem.”

Ann Botticelli, SVP Corporate Communications and public affairs officer, speaking for Hawaiian, said the company keeps its fares low and that a one-way ticket price from Lihue to Honolulu for 12 months ending March 30 was $68 (or $82.70 with taxes).

Rep. Dee Morikawa, District 16 on Kauai, said “Maybe the resolution will spur the discussion”


Well I DO NOT think the government, local or federal can fix any problems, perceived or otherwise, with interisland air travel. They can’t force someone IN to business as easily as we have seen airlines forced OUT of business in recent years. New or existing airlines might not want to get tangled too tightly with State of Hawaii lawmakers.

These lawmakers could have just listened to me when I warned them about Mesa back in 2004 but that’s long forgotten history now. An ounce of prevention would have been worth a pound of resolutions and “spurring discussions” but it is now 2015 and both Aloha and Mesa are long gone from Hawaii’s skies.

Mesa left Hawaii’s economy a “scorched earth” (precisely as I predicted in 2004) and Hawaii has barely recovered now many years later. Hawaiian can and will charge whatever the market will bear. No other airline wants to enter the vortex of interisland passenger travel after so many other failed operations in recent history.

The people of Hawaii were played. How did anyone think $19 and $29 tickets would turn out? Just be thankful Mesa’s shame in Hawaii is unforgettable to this day. Hawaiian would eventually chose to use Empire instead of Mesa for their Ohana operation and Mesa would ultimately depart Hawaii for good. Empire is the same certificate holder that operated Mahalo for Robert Iwamoto back in the 1990s. Small world isn’t it?
