"Sherry Vance: Why this Coming Year?"

You mentioned to Barry in the following:
"The time frame you are looking for, Barry.....that of "from the confirming of the covenant, guaranteeing their security and his subsequent revelation/opening of the First Seal/the abomination/the fleeing of the Remnant" is the time frame from THIS Rosh HaShanah, Sept 29, 2011 until next Nissan/April, which is the MIDST OF THE 70th WEEK.  The confirming of the covenant comes before the rider of the First Seal goes forth to conquer - so he doesn't have to be "revealed" to confirm the covenant.  Indeed, the fact that he is still a mere MAN at the point which, as the Chief of the UN Security Council guarantees Israel's security, is indicative that the great tribulation has not yet begun......yet the 70th Week will be entering the mid-point/4th year of the 7." 
But, WHY, what reason should anyone think that this coming Rosh Hashanah 2011 to Rosh Hashanah, 2012 is now the midst of the 70th week of Daniel?  I thought it was this last year, from Rosh 2010 to this coming Rosh of 2011?  What happened to this last year (or why didn't anything happen?)?  If the Lord does not come this coming year, then are you going to then push the midst of the 70th week to the next year and so on?
What now makes this year significantly different from last year and from following years?
"As for the miracles that the Bible says the AC and false prophet will be associated with, I think they will be real, obvious, impressive miracles, not just winning a Nobel prize for not doing anything.  Oh yes, I agree with you, Barry!  My mentioning of the "miracles" he (Obama) has done already was tongue-in-cheek (you gotta admit he's done some mighty fancy footwork both behind our backs and in public!)  But we know that "...there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God." Romans 13:1   He's there to be used of God in bringing about the final days before Jesus' return.  I believe once we are gone and the great tribulation is under way, they will see "real, obvious, impressive miracles."..."
Ok, This question is for both you, Sherry and Barry or anyone else. When does the scriptures say that the A.C. will begin to manifest or show this power or ability to do these miraculous signs and wonders?  Is it at the beginning of a so called 7 year Tribulation?  Or do they start at the middle or midst of that week, and why?
Inquiring minds would like to know what you think and how you scripturally back it up.
