Most Popular British Name?

If one was asked what is the most popular British name that parents are naming their newborn boys....I think we would all guess, "Jack" or "Angus" or "Oliver". But of course we would all be wrong.

The correct answer is....Mohammad.

Yes, that's right. The most popular baby name is now in honor of the inventor of Islam.

Muslims make up roughly 3% of Britain’s 58 million people, but their birth rate is higher than the norm for England.

See it here;

Did you catch that Muslims have having more kids than the normal British couple? That is most definitely one of the plans issued by the Muslim Brotherhood to take over open societies....they will just have more kids... and in 30 years time will be a majority....and then they can change the laws by electing their own leaders.

I tell you...that Satan dude....he is one crafty adversary.

And the World Goes Dark

Over the past few years we have spoken of an EMP (Electro-Magnetic-Pulse) and the danger that one could have to our electronic society.

An EMP can come in two different ways. One is from a solar-magnetic storm and the other would be from an atomic bomb detonated over the USA.

This week, USA TODAY has an article on EMP's that is very interesting. It's title is fairly ominous; ONE EMP BURST AND THE WORLD GOES DARK.

It's true that Western civilization has become 100% dependent on the electricity being available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. With no wouldn't take long for the looting and crime to commence.

Fear is evident. With the sun's 11-year solar cycle ramping up for its stormy maximum in 2012, and nuclear concerns swirling about Iran and North Korea, a drumbeat of reports and blue-ribbon panels center on electromagnetic pulse scenarios.

"We're taking this seriously," says Ed Legge of the Edison Electric Institute in Washington, which represents utilities. He points to a North American Electric Reliability Corp. (NERC) report in June, conducted with the Energy Department, that found pulse threats to the grid "may be much greater than anticipated."

Now pay close attention to what this guy says about terrorists and nukes;

One complication for rogue nations or terrorists contemplating a high-altitude nuclear blast is that such an attack requires a missile to take the weapon at least 25 miles high to trigger the electromagnetic pulse. For nations, such a launch would invite massive nuclear retaliation from the USA's current stockpile of 5,000 warheads, many of them riding in submarines far from any pulse effects.

Any nation giving a terror group an atomic weapon and missile would face retaliation, Butt and others note, as nuclear forensics capabilities at the U.S. national labs would quickly trace the origins of the bomb, Butt says. "It would be suicide."

Mr. Butt....question please.....what if the CIA already has hard evidence that Iran is practicing EMP launches from missiles concealed in steel cargo compartments aboard freight ships? Follow up question please....Mr. Butt.....HAVE YOU NOT HEARD THAT MANY MUSLIMS ARE HAPPY TO COMMITT SUICIDE IF IT MEANS DEATH TO THE ENEMIES OF ALLAH?

The fact that Mr. Butt would believe that death for a terrorist is some kind of frankly a little frightening. Mr. Butt, .....newsflash; MANY TERRORISTS ACTUALLY WANT TO DIE! That's why they call them "SUICIDE BOMBERS"!

I also wonder if Mr. Butt has any idea of who the 12th Imam is? Does he understand that the leaders of Iran are all "twelvers"...meaning they believe the return of the Imam is imminent...and that their role is to cause global chaos to make the conditions ripe for his return?

If they could spark a nuclear exchange to ignite a global you think they may be capable of doing that?

Anyway, you can see the article here;

As you read the parts about the solar storms and the power of does make you humble to realize how out of control we humans really are....and how dependent we are on the Creator of the universe for each and every breath we take.

Bargain With the Devil

Earlier today we wrote about more Ponzi involving the Federal Reserve. Then I went to lunch and read the Wall Street Journal top headline; FED GEARS UP FOR STIMULUS.

What does this mean? Ready....? It means the Federal Reserve is getting ready to buy more U.S. Treasuries....and not every one on the Federal Reserve Board is happy about this latest round of "quantitative easing".

Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke's push to restart the bond-buying program—a form of monetary stimulus known as quantitative easing—has been greeted with deep skepticism among some of his colleagues.

In some of his strongest words yet, Thomas Hoenig, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, said Monday that more expansive monetary policy was a "bargain with the devil."

A Wall Street Journal survey of private sector economists in early October found that the Fed is expected to purchase about $250 billion of Treasury bonds per quarter and continue until mid-2011, amounting to about $750 billion in all.

Hey.....what's another 3/4 of a $trillion between friends?

See it here;

That whole "bargain with the devil" statement sounds kind of serious. I wonder if he would be willing to expand on why he used those words?

I wonder if he means that all of this fake money printing might prolong our false sense of security...and prolong the idea of the American Dream just a little bit longer....but that ultimately we will owe the devil our financial ultimately we will end up in financial hell?

Again, how sad is it that the wealthiest nation that the world has ever going to end up in financial hell....because what we had wasn't quite we spent other people's money...and now we are bankrupt?

Doesn't it feel like just a few years ago that we were all making boat loads of money in our 401(k)s by investing it all in "" stocks? They seemed to go up about 50% per year and that was going to last as far as the eye could see!

Doesn't it feel like just a few years ago we are all going to buy $500,000 homes with borrowed money, live in them, use the home equity to buy new trucks and vacations....and then flip them and make a tidy profit? Everyone seemed 100% confident this would work...because many people told me flat out..."You can NEVER lose money in real estate....because they aren't making it any more!"

What a sad bunch of human beings we are. Half the country has been to college, 90% have graduated from high school....and yet we all still fell for the lure of easy money and free wealth....a lure that most kindegartners know sounds too good to be true.

No wonder Jesus warned us about the dangers of money so many times. He knew we would take our eyes off of our one true mission (The Great Commission-Matthew 28) as we chased full time after more crap we believed would make us happy...and using money that wasn't ours to buy that crap.

Jesus told us in Revelation 3 what the condition of the last Church on earth would be right before His return...and it sure sounds like the Church in America.

"So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth. You say, 'I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.' But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked."

More Ponzi Talk

The Bible says very clearly that the entire global financial system will collapse in an hour. (Revelation 18:17) The good news is that this event WON'T happen until The Tribulation...which means we followers of Christ will be gone in the rapture before this happens.

But, none the less, we should expect to see some foreshadowing today of this great event that will take place in the future.

The first warning we had was Bernie Maddoff. He took $billions of dollars in a Ponzi scheme. Then we had Tom Petters here in Minneapolis, some "Christian" financial planner in Burnsville followed him, then last February Robert Markmann a famous money manager from Edina killed himself rather than watch his Ponzi scheme be revealed.

Of course the greatest Ponzi scheme taking place is the one that involves the Federal Government, the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve. As we have pointed out numerous times, when the Federal Gov't is out of money (and they are to the tune of $5 billion per day), they order the Treasury to sell IOU's on a global auction. And when the interest rate isn't low enough or the necessary demand isn't high enough....the Federal Reserve steps into the Treasury auction and "buys" the IOU's.


If the Federal Reserve has $trillions of dollars to buy IOU's....why don't they just give it to the Federal Government in the first place?

Answer: because it is all a bunch of paper and fictitious zeros that will crumble when the confidence in our fiat (paper money) money system disappears.

So today we have more confirmation that a Ponzi scheme has been cooked in the USA, and this warning comes from the largest bond fund manager at PIMCO.

“Check writing in the trillions is not a bondholder’s friend,” Gross wrote in his monthly investment outlook posted on Newport Beach, California-based Pimco’s website today. “It is in fact inflationary, and, if truth be told, somewhat of a Ponzi scheme. It raises bond prices to create the illusion of high annual returns, but ultimately it reaches a dead end where those prices can no longer go up.”

Did you catch the word "Ponzi" and "illusion"?

Fed officials, who already cut interest rates almost to zero, are discussing more purchases of Treasuries to flood markets with cheap money as well as strategies for raising inflation expectations to prevent stagnating prices from undermining the recovery.

He then goes on to say something that is 100% true....and for that I stand and applaud him.

“This is not a Bernanke scheme, because this is his only alternative and he shares no responsibility for its origin,” Gross wrote. “I call it a Sammy scheme, in honor of Uncle Sam and the politicians -- as well as citizens -- who have brought us to this critical moment in time. You and I, and the politicians that we elect every two years, deserve all the blame.”

See it here;

Yes and I do deserve all the blame. When our incomes didn't go up for 10 years but our access to credit cards and home equity loans became as easy as signing your name....we just pretended that we would never have to pay the money back. We believed that our housing values would grow faster than anything we wanted to spend...and then some!

And then we demanded more and more programs from our governments (plus have them pay for two wars) but demanded that it only be paid for by taking some of the cream off the top of our growing stock portfolios. We are now at a place where 50% of tax filers pay nothing into the IRS....and this explains why Team Obama is predicting a $1 Trillion per year deficit as far as the eye can see.

Make no mistake....this system is broke. Bernanke has no other alternative but to try and keep the whole shaky house of cards standing for a little while longer. If Jesus delays his coming we will see more wealth created in India, China, South Korea, Indonesia, etc....and we will see the prominence of the U.S. global position in quickening decline.

With all of our blessings of wealth, we should have been a creditor to the world....but instead we took Satan's bait and did the opposite. And now we will be a slave to the world for the $trillions of their dollars we borrowed at interest.

Massive Storm

I just heard on our local news that the lowest pressure reading EVER recorded in Minnesota happened today. As I write this you can hear the winds howling outside.

It's being said this is the worst storm to hit Chicago in over 70 years and tornadoes, harsh rain and even blizzard warnings are being issued from Bismarck to Michigan.

CHICAGO (AP) - A storm drawing comparisons to a hurricane has muscled across the Midwest, snapping trees and power lines, delaying flights at one of nation's busiest airports and soaking commuters who slogged to work under crumpled umbrellas.

See it here;

I just have to wonder if this might be another early warning sign from the God if Israel...that the USA is not supposed to be involved in drawing a map to divide the Promised Land?

Time will tell.

Lost Catholics

Replacement theology is the understanding/belief that Christians replaced the Jews as God's chosen people. It is a dangerous theology because it puts you at odds with what the the Bible clearly says concerning the Jews.

Remember that Martin Luther struggled with replacement theology and that turned into blatant anti-Semitism...and I believe many protestants today are still caught in the cloud that Martin Luther left behind.

Now lets look at what a high ranking Catholic just said;

The Creator’s promise in the Bible that the Promised Land belongs to the Jewish People is no longer valid, a Catholic synod declared. An American archbishop at the Synod explained Saturday that the promise of the Creator was "abolished by the presence of Christ."

In a decision that is bound to set off a furious reaction from many Jewish leaders, the synod concluded that “recourse to theological and biblical positions which use the Word of G-d to wrongly justify injustices is not acceptable.”

Now notice more talk of the "two state solution" and also the use of the term "occupation" when referring to Israel occupying Jerusalem and other parts of Judea;

After two weeks of meetings, the Synod also said that a two-state solution of a Palestinian Authority country, in place of most of the Land Israel, would help stem the exodus of Christians from the area.

The Synod recognized "the suffering and insecurity in which Israelis live" but focused on what it called Palestinian Authority “suffering [of] the consequences of the Israeli occupation: the lack of freedom of movement, the wall of separation and the military checkpoints, the political prisoners, the demolition of homes, [and] the disturbance of socio-economic life and the thousands of refugees."

See it here;

So what are we to make of all this? First off I would say the Catholic religion will be in trouble...and may even be "torn to pieces" if it continues down the road of pressuring Israel to divide Holy Land. Secondly, we will need to watch to see if the Catholic church is beginning to make movements toward a "one world religion"...and denying parts of the Bible that you don't like while including the "less offensive" parts that you do like...will most likely be one of the signatures of the coming one world religion.

That coming religion will come to full maturity after the rapture of the church and it may include parts of Christianity, parts of Islam, parts of Buddha, parts of Hinduism and certainly lots of paganism, mother-earth, tolerance, acceptance and the mother of all apostasies....THERE REALLY IS NO SUCH THING AS SIN.

Hat tip to Tom.
