Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby tweeted today: We can confirm that the explosion at the Abbey Gate was the result of a complex attack that resulted in a number of US & civilian casualties. We can also confirm at least one other explosion at or near the Baron Hotel, a short distance from Abbey Gate. We will continue to update. 
This comes on the heels of Multiple senior Chinese officials' warnings against any proposed US “wanton sanctions” on the Taliban, by the United States in the aftermath of the group’s takeover of Afghanistan.
The warning comes as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, among other international institutions, freeze funding to Afghanistan in light of the Taliban’s return to power – expressing both human rights concerns and confusion regarding who is currently serving as head of state of the country. The Taliban leadership has not appointed a head of state or announced the installation of any individuals as actual leaders of the country as of August 25, 2021.
The Taliban became the de facto national government of Afghanistan after ex-President Ashraf Ghani fled Kabul, the capital, on August 15. Taliban jihadists had surrounded Kabul hours earlier but not yet entered the city. Following Ghani’s flight, Taliban leaders announced the country would rebrand as the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan” and the Taliban would build a full government apparatus to replace the fallen republic as soon as possible. 
Meanwhile, China is trying to extend their support of this new regime. Afghanistan has huge deposits of natural resources estimated to be worth $1 trillion or more, including what may be the world's largest lithium reserves. The country has witnessed four decades of war - with the Soviet Union, between warring tribes and the US attack and subsequent control over Afghanistan after the 2001 attacks.
And in all this what remained untouched was the mining of these huge natural resources and using them for the development work of Afghanistan. Poor infrastructure in the landlocked country, along with weak security, have hampered efforts to mine and profit from the reserves.
In 2018, a Reuters report stated that about 500,000 tons of talc, used in products ranging from paint to baby powder, were exported from Afghanistan until March of that year. Almost all went to Pakistan, where much of it was re-exported. Pakistan provides more than a third of US imports of talc and much also ends up in the European Union.
After the present Taliban takeover, the US has already frozen nearly $9.5 billion in Afghanistan's reserves. The International Monetary Fund has cut off financing for Afghanistan, including nearly $500 million that was scheduled to be disbursed around the exact time as when the Taliban took control.
Kabul now faces a growing economic crisis, with prices of staples like flour and oil surging, pharmacies running short on drugs, and ATMs depleted of cash. Taliban this week appointed a new Central Bank Chief to address those problems. And amidst all this crisis, Beijing can offer what Kabul needs most - political support on international forums and economic investment in the war-torn country.
For China, Afghanistan holds economic and strategic value. China sees this as an opportunity to invest in the country's mineral sector. The Taliban has said that they want good international relations, particularly with China. And China is also showing that they mean business.
Already the Communist Party-backed Global Times reported that Chinese investment is likely to be 'widely accepted' in Afghanistan. Another media report says that the United States is in no position to meddle with any potential cooperation between China and Afghanistan, including on rare earth.
Beijing has been telling the Taliban not to do any terrorist attacks against China and view strong economic ties as key to ensuring stability. The plan is to take back these minerals to its own country and use in Chinese-financed infrastructure that includes about $60 billion in projects in neighboring Pakistan.
In the mid-2000s, investors led by state-owned Metallurgical Corp of China won an almost $3 billion bid to mine copper near Kabul. It still hasn't seen any output due to a series of delays ranging from security concerns to the discovery of historical artifacts, and there's still no rail or power plant. Metallurgical Corp of China said in its 2020 annual report it was negotiating with the Afghan government about the mining contract after earlier saying it was economically unviable.
In 2010, US officials estimated that Afghanistan had $1 trillion of unexplored mineral deposits. The then Afghanistan government had said that the mineral resources are actually worth three times as much. They include vast reserves of lithium, rare earths, and copper - materials critical to the global green-energy transition. The Taliban takeover in Afghanistan comes at a critical time for the battery-materials supply chain.
Producers are looking to invest in more upstream assets to secure lithium supply. Currently, the US, Japan, and Europe have been seeking to cut their dependence on China for rare earths, used in items such as permanent magnets.  Now, that the US has abandoned Afghanistan, they have forfeited prime opportunities to not only further stabilize the region, but have lost a major resource as well.

Of course, the US military is exchanging the same sentiments. Three aircraft carriers embarking two different models of F-35 stealth fighter have assembled in the waters around Okinawa.
The three-carrier group, with two American flattops and one British one, is among the most powerful naval formations to appear anywhere in many years.
And it’s not hard to understand the timing and location. The Chinese navy in recent weeks has been rehearsing an invasion of Taiwan. The three US military carriers are a warning to China—that an attack on the Thai island democracy could have profound consequences.
The three flattops converged from separate directions; the British, American and Dutch escorts for several weeks now have been crisscrossing the Western Pacific.
The 919-foot carrier with two squadrons of F-35B jump jets aboard—one from the Royal Air Force and another from the U.S. Marine Corps—departed the United Kingdom for her maiden cruise back in May, sailed through the Mediterranean and across the Indian Ocean to reach the Pacific via the Singapore Strait.
USS America was the first American flattop to join up with Queen Elizabeth. America, an 844-foot amphibious assault ship with a conventional powerplant, functions as a light carrier when she embarks a squadron or two of F-35Bs. She sails from Japan, usually in the company of destroyers and other amphibious ships from the U.S. 7th Fleet. 
We learned a few months ago how China used the Bhutan land grab as an illustration to show the world their power. In quietly seizing a chunk of land from its small Himalayan neighbor, Beijing is displaying the favored tactic of countries that want to alter the international order but aren’t ready to confront it head-on.
Over several years, China has sought to fortify its Tibetan border — and gain leverage on the South Asian rival India — by stealthily constructing a complex of roads, villages and security installations on land that belongs to Bhutan. It’s unclear whether the Bhutanese government even realized that the People’s Liberation Army had effectively invaded a small, remote part of its territory, or if it knew: but was powerless to respond. What is clear is that the Chinese presence is NOT leaving the World Stage.
This is an increasingly familiar maneuver: This is the nature of territorial aggression in the modern world. It wasn’t always this way. Before 1945, it was more common to see the outright, blatant conquest of entire nations. Just think of how many times Poland was wiped off the map by stronger powers. Since World War II, however, only a single internationally recognized country — South Vietnam — has disappeared because of military aggression. When North Korea tried to conquer South Korea, or Saddam Hussein’s Iraq temporarily swallowed Kuwait, the international community led by Washington DC restored the status quo.
Some scholars argue that a revolution in international law made the world safer for the weak. In nominally outlawing war, they contend, the Kellogg-Briand Pact of 1928 turned the moral tide against aggression. In truth, the key was the post-World War II Pax Americana, rooted in military alliances and forward deployments that delivered unprecedented security to key regions of the globe. To allow unchecked military aggression, President Harry Truman explained to Congress in 1947, was to cast the world back into the dark anarchy that had just produced a cataclysm.
The result, though, was not to eliminate aggression. It was simply to moderate it through the force of American power. Revisionist nations find it more difficult to openly confront a U.S.-backed status quo, so they have to proceed more subtly. The answer since 1945 has been the limited land grab, in which an aggressor quickly or covertly seizes what is often a fairly modest piece of terrain.
China has adopted a piecemeal, step-by-step approach to controlling the South China Sea, making moves — building an artificial island there, seizing a disputed reef there — that shift the status quo without triggering a major conflict with its neighbors or DC. Beijing quietly sends troops onto pieces of inaccessible terrain claimed by India or Bhutan. It tests Japan’s control of the disputed Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea by applying consistent, low-grade military pressure with its coast guard.
In a way, the fact that aggression now happens mainly in this murky "gray zone” is a testament to what the U.S. and its friends have built since 1945. China’s sneaky conquest in Bhutan makes a mockery of its pledges that it will never seek hegemony or expansion. 
This Bhutan land-grab from China is nothing new. As far back as 2016 reports have surfaced of the Chinese president gobbling up land masses. Xi Jinping offered in 2016 a whopping $60 billion loan and aid package to Africa, saying that China aims to develop infrastructure, improve agriculture and reduce poverty on the continent. This is yet another example of China’s burgeoning economic presence in Africa. Its investment there has skyrocketed from $7 billion in 2008 to $26 billion in 2013, according to figures cited at a Wharton Africa Business Forum held in 2016. Imagine how much more investment has been dumped since then. But the relationship is fraught with controversy. 
Meanwhile, U.S. lawmakers are acting with increased concern as Chinese purchasers are buying tens of thousands of acres of U.S. farmland. As of the start of 2020, Chinese investors owned about 192,000 acres of U.S. agricultural land valued at about $1.9 billion. While Chinese land ownership in the U.S. is less than that of other foreign nations, the growth in Chinese land ownership is part of an overall trend in China rapidly buying up other country’s farmland over more than a decade.
In 2018, the U.S. Department of Agriculture reported that China’s agricultural investments in other nations had grown more than tenfold what they had. The extensive Chinese land holdings in the U.S. have stirred calls to cut China off and stem the potential U.S. reliance on those Chinese landowners from both sides of the political aisle.
“The current trend in the U.S. is leading us toward the creation of a Chinese-owned agricultural land monopoly,” Representative Dan Newhouse warned in a recent House Appropriations hearing.
Newhouse raised his concerns about Chinese land ownership as he proposed an amendment in a new agricultural appropriations bill, H.R. 4356, that would block any new agricultural purchases by companies that are wholly or partly controlled by the Chinese government and would ban existing Chinese-owned farms in the U.S. from drawing from federal agricultural support programs.
According to Joe Maxwell, president of Family Farm Action, foreign investors could likely still set up limited liability companies in the U.S. and designate an American owner to circumvent reporting requirements while still owning the U.S. agricultural land through their corporate structure. “When this land changes hands, they’re going to gobble it up,” Maxwell said of Chinese and other foreign buyers. “These investments artificially increase the value of that land, which then denies young and beginning farmers opportunities to farm.” 
Is this what former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was speaking of when he addressed all fifty state governors at a Gubernatorial assembly several years ago?
Did our state governors and legislatures sell us out to China? Is this why our National Legislature body is pressing for tyranny with such ease? These are questions worth considering.
Remember, in a recent podcast titled “Rise to Power” when I exposed the plans for the NESARA/GESARA financial reset being headed up by the Asian Investments Infrastructure Bank using the social credit score system. This is why I believe understanding history is key to reversing nefarious invasions.
A quote from the greatest Chinese world invader in history; Genghis Khan: Not even a mighty warrior can break a frail arrow when it is multiplied and supported by its fellows. As long as you brothers support one another and render assistance to one another, your enemies can never gain the victory over you. But if you fall away from each other your enemy can break you like frail arrows, one at a time. 
Please urge your local, state, and national leader to stop capitulating before it’s too late.
On a side note, there is an increasing number of uninhabited "ghost" cities in China that seem to have been abandoned after years of construction. It is unclear how many of these Chinese ghost cities currently exist, but estimates put the number as high as 50 municipalities. Some of these cities have yet to be completed while others are fully functioning metropolises, save for the lack of residents.
The occurrence of these ghost cities across China.  I don’t this this is a coincidence at all. In this channel’s most recent podcast titled, “Many Faces in Time”, I laid out a detailed history and family tree of the players in these End Time events. I know that particular podcast was super long, but it is one worth downloading to review periodically in order to know those we are dealing with today.
In a prophecy in Ezekiel 38, the Bible labels this vast territory of northern Eurasia where the Scythes lived—a region that stretched from the Russian steppes east into modern-day China and Mongolia—as Magog. This territory contained many different tribes of people of the white and yellow races, all of whom were called Scythes or Scythians by the Greeks.
The Ezekiel 38 prophecy demonstrates this as well, listing numerous nations and peoples associated with or dwelling “in the land of Magog.” The people who most prominently settled this land are typically identified as Mongolic and Turkic. The name Mongol is even derived from the name Magog.
The ancient history of this land is a story about different Turkic and Mongolic tribes vying for control of the area. Whenever a tribe grew strong enough, it would rule the area; in rare cases—such as with the Huns, Seljuk Turks and Mongols—if these nomadic tribes consolidated enough power, they conquered lands beyond their own. The resulting conquests led to much cultural and genetic intermixing with the people of Central Asia—and makes their national borders largely irrelevant to defining their ethnic backgrounds.
Today the land the Bible calls Magog is dominated in the west by Russia—which is reasserting control over the region it once possessed through the USSR - and China in the east. While the Mongols’ connection to Magog is most obvious, they were just one tribe of a related people that carry the biblical name Magog. Ezekiel 38 is a prophecy about the land of Magog and all the distant “cousins” that live there and are associated with each other, such as the Russians and Chinese.
One of the Mongolic nomadic tribes in this area bears a special relationship with China. They are the Khitan, a people responsible for China’s modern name and one of China’s biblical names, Chittim.
Isaiah 23:1-3 reveal that Chittim, modern-day China, will form a part of a global economic market along with Europe. It should be no surprise that China will be an integral part of this economic partnership with Europe, as it is now the world’s greatest exporter. These two trading blocs will soon dominate the global economy! Will China become the world’s next dominating superpower after the decline of the U.S.? The answer is no!
Though it will grow to tremendous world power, even superpower status—especially through economic means, as indicated in Isaiah 23—it will not rise to the top spot. That position will be filled by the European power led by Germany as noted in the last segment of the latest podcast “Many Faces in Time”! After a short economic partnership, China will violently contend with the king of the north for global dominance. But this war will end when Jesus Christ returns and destroys both powers!
