China is Scared

Of course we owe China some money. Of course they are getting worried that we are going to just pay them back with printed paper. Now this headline in Bloomberg is saying that China is scared about how we are planning on paying them back.

Policy makers in China, which holds $883.5 billion in U.S. Treasuries, are concerned the nation with the world’s biggest economy is debasing its currency, according to Kenneth S. Rogoff and James Rickards.

The world is in the early stages of a currency war, said Rickards, chief financial and administrative officer of Oro Capital Advisors LLC. Rickards, Rogoff, a professor of economics and public policy at Harvard University, and Laurence H. Meyer, co-founder of Macroeconomic Advisers LLC, spoke today at the Bloomberg Hedge Funds 2010 conference in New York.

“The idea that China is this monster, gorilla in the world economy, is not true -- they are very scared,” Rickards said. “They made one very large mistake, that they trusted the U.S.”

Did you catch that "currency war" comment? Remember what history teaches us.....currency wars lead to trade wars (tariffs and import taxes), trade wars lead to real wars.

Men Will Be Brutal

The Bible tells us in the last days that people will be brutal, lovers of violence. Of course we see this especially in the movies that keep coming out of Hollywood. Millions of Americans line up to pay $10 per ticket for the chance to see how many heinous ways a person can be killed in some of the most popular slasher films.

Also the video games that our kids are spending days playing. Many of the most popular involve massive amounts of killing...scoring more points for killing in a particularly gruesome way.

So should it surprise us when a 14 year old boy from California was just arrested for beheading people?

Soldiers detained Edgar Jimenez late Thursday at an airport outside Cuernavaca, 50 miles south of Mexico City, as he prepared to board a flight to Tijuana. Officials said he was accompanied by a sister and was heading to his native San Diego, where his mother lives.

Presented to the news media Friday morning, Jimenez said he had beheaded at least four adversaries of the so-called South Pacific Cartel, a remnant of the Beltran Leyva crime syndicate. The small, mop-haired boy known as El Ponchis, or "The Stoner," said he committed the killings while stoned on marijuana and at the orders of the gang boss in command of the Cuernavaca area. Authorities said he was caught with two cell phones that held photographs of tortured victims.

"I didn't know what I was doing," Jimenez said, according to media accounts, but added that he was paid $2,500 per killing. Army officials accused Jimenez's sister, identified as 19-year-old Elizabeth, of also working for the gang. Neither has been formerly charged.

See it here;

Nice! A stoned teenager cutting off heads for $2500 a piece.

Now ask yourselves a serious question....even if the stock market does come back and America returns to it's prominent place as the most voracious consumers in the you really believe a society can last much longer that produces the filthy entertainment and filthy citizens that we are producing by the millions?

When will God say, "Enough!"

End of the World as We Know it

Kind of strange video going on's on which of course is a financial magazine. The guy they are interviewing is a technical guy from some investment house, but even MORE IMPORTANTLY, he is a celestial guy.

What does that mean?

It means he is big into looking at planetary alignments to figure out the future.

So what?

So he is saying that the Mayan calendar is ending on December 21, 2012 and that the planets WILL BE aligned on that day for the first time in 26,000 years...and it will bring about the end of civilization as we know it.

So what?

Again...let me repeat....THIS IN ON FORBES WEBSITE. Remember Steve Forbes....he ran for President a few years back?.....yeah that's the same Forbes name. The Forbes name is almost synonymous with Wall Street.

Listen towards the end of the video, he says that he is short on the stock market (meaning he thinks it's going to crash big time). He said he is buying puts and hopes that they will pay off before the entire financial system melts down.

Something big is brewing folks. We all need to stay in the Word of God on a daily basis so we will not be led astray.

Presbyterians Against Israel

Today's Wall Street Journal has another article about Israel. This one has to do with how some Christian churches are turning on Israel and has much to do with, "replacement theology".

In many ways, the second half of the 20th century was a high point for Jewish-Christian relations. Today, however, the anti-Israel politics of certain powerful Christian bodies hampers interfaith relations and threatens to breathe new life into medieval doctrine that demonized Jews for hundreds of years.

In 2007, the World Council of Churches, an umbrella organization of mostly liberal Protestants claiming a membership of 580 million worshippers, convened the "Churches Together for Peace and Justice in the Middle East Conference." The conference produced the Amman Call, a document that condemned violence and endorsed a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but denied Israel's right to a future as a Jewish state.

Most importantly, these Palestinian church leaders declared that there must not be a Jewish state because any religious state is inherently racist. They mentioned in this regard only Israel, of course, ignoring all Muslim states and others with an official state religion.

The Kairos document quickly won accolades from religious groups including from the Presbyterian Church (USA), which has 2.3 million American members and in 2004 was the first mainline American Protestant group to call for divestment from Israel.

See it here;

Divestment from Israel? They are of course using the same language that they used when they divested themselves from South Africa and apartheid 25 years ago.....obviously many want to compare Israel with old South Africa! Amazing!!

How sad that it may soon be ONLY the Bible believing Christians who stand by Israel. And of course persecution WILL be coming for us as well because we stand with Israel.

I am amazed when I talk to self professed Christians who don't believe in any future prophetic role of Israel. When I point out specific verses in the old and new testament that CLEARLY talk about Israel's role during the last days, all they can say is, "Is that REALLY what it says?" How funny/sad that Satan also used that same line in his VERY FIRST DECEPTION...."Did God really say you shall not eat of it?"

Israel Not Ready for War With Iran

With a huge fire still raging today in Israel, foreign firefighters and their equipment are showing up to help Israeli firefighters get control of this historic fire.

So what is everyone learning from this lesson?

That Israel is not prepared for a war with Iran because their emergency services are ill prepared to douse fires that would result from thousands of missiles raining down from Hezbollah, Syria and Iran.

The enormous blaze that broke out on the Carmel will be remembered as the Yom Kippur War of the Fire and Rescue Service, who were not prepared to counter a disaster of such magnitude.

Yesterday it turned out that Israel is not prepared for war or a mass terrorist strike that would cause many casualties in the home front. The warning of the outgoing Military Intelligence Chief, Amos Yadlin, that the next war will be a lot more difficult than past experiences, and that Tel Aviv will be a front line, was not translated into the necessary preparation by the authorities assigned the protection of the civilians.

Under such circumstances, it is best for Israel not to embark on war against Iran, which will involve thousands of missiles being fired on the home front.

After the Second Lebanon War, which exposed how pathetic the civil defense system was, reports were written, exercises were held, but everything broke down under the stress of a real emergency on the Carmel range − an area that already experienced the trauma of Hezbollah missiles.

See it here;

It makes one wonder if Hezbollah in Lebanon, Syria and Iran are reading this very same article (of course they are!) and consulting with each other saying, "I wonder if we should hit these guys now while they are weak?"

Truthfully, if you really did want to utterly destroy an would wait until they were at their weakest moment to launch an attack.

No doubt that both Israel and it's enemies are gleaning information as Israel exposes it's emergency services to public view while fighting this monstrous fire.

Once again.....Israel is in the top-headline news.

Fire in Israel

Of course we know that Israel has been in the news every day for one thing or it is making headline news because of a large forest fire up in the Golan Heights in Northern Israel. Sadly it sounds like a bus load of prison guards were killed when the bus was overcome by flames.

Jerusalem (CNN) -- As many as 40 people were killed Thursday in a massive wildfire that erupted Thursday near Haifa in northern Israel and showed no sign of being controlled, the Israel Defense Forces said.

A bus carrying up to 50 people overturned "allegedly after the driver lost control of the vehicle because of the fire and surrounding smoke" as it was traveling between kibbutz Beit Oren and Damon Prison, the IDF website said.

It was not clear from the IDF website how many of the deaths attributed to fire occurred in the bus accident, but the newspaper Haaretz reported that all 40 of the dead were on the bus.

Israel has been suffering through it's worst drought in some time. Just one more wild weather occurrence.

Iranian Nuclear Scientist Killed

It seems some assassins rode up on motorcycles alongside some cars that Iranian nuclear scientists were riding in, attached some bombs then sped away and detonated them, killing one and injuring others.

What can we know about the assassins? First off, they weren't suicide bombers hoping to die in they most likely were not Muslims.

Well who was it then? The world is already pointing the finger at ISRAEL!

Tehran today accused the west and Israel of dispatching a hit squad against its atomic programme, after an Iranian nuclear scientist was killed and another injured in co-ordinated attacks.

The attackers rode up on motorcycles and stuck bombs to the windows of the scientists' cars as they were leaving their homes in Tehran on the way to work. Seconds later the bombs detonated.

One bomb killed Majid Shahriar, of the nuclear engineering faculty at the Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran. His wife was in the car with him and was wounded. The second bomb injured Fereidoun Abbasi, 52, a nuclear physicist and professor at Shahid Besheshti, and also injured his wife.

See it here;

Of course the Mossad (Israel's CIA) isn't saying a thing...and you can bet if they were involved it won't be leaked out on WikiLeaks.

You know friends, when Israel says "Never Again!" when speaking about the Holocaust....those aren't just words. They truly mean it. When the world turns on them again, they will not go down without a fight.

I have no idea if Israel was involved in this or in the Stuxtnet computer worm that caused chaos in the Iranian nuclear facilities....but if they were, it would not surprise me....and I would not blame them for doing everything in their power to slow down their ancient Persian enemies from acquiring The Bomb.

Faith in Rescue Ebbs

Today's Wall Street Journal has this as the number 1 headline;

Europe's Crisis Widens
Italy, Spain See Bonds Sink, Portugal Faces Rating Cut as Faith in Rescue Ebbs

Investors dismissed European leaders' latest attempt to restore market calm, raising doubts about whether governments can rebuild confidence in the region's common currency amid signs that the debt crisis is creeping deeper into the Continent.

The euro fell to a 10-week low, and was below $1.30 in late New York trading. Bond markets across Europe's vulnerable fringe sank, as the "risk premium" investors demand for lending to Spain and Italy hit record highs. Standard & Poor's said after European markets closed it is considering a downgrade on Portugal's credit rating, citing economic pressures and increased risks to the government's creditworthiness.

Some observers say the euro zone will eventually have to choose between unraveling or creating a deeper union that includes financial transfers from strong countries to weaker ones. But creating the central budget authority that the euro-zone now lacks would be a hard sell in countries such as Germany that would have to foot the bill.

See it here;

The "faith" in paper money and man-made schemes seems to be teetering. Should that surprise us? The Bible tells us to, "Have faith in God alone." What percentage of the Western World does that...or even believes it is remotely true? I'm guessing less than one percent.

Biblical history shows us that we can only ignore God for so long before we are so far off course that He finally comes down and says, "Enough!"

Could we be close to that day? One thing for sure...we are a lot closer to that day than most earthlings know.

Black Friday

Of course we all know what Black Friday's when 180 million U.S. consumers hit the stores at 4 am looking for a they can be ready to celebrate the birth of Christ in style. (insert sarcasm here).

How sad that as a society we can't even let our turkey digest from Thanksgiving (giving thanks to God for all He has given us)...before we are charging out to buy more crap.

For some who don't remember why they call it Black's because this is the day that all the retail stores hope to go "into the black". Up until this day most stores have been operating in the red. They hope that the celebration surrounding the birth of Christ will get them profitable before year end.

So with all the mayhem that surrounds 180 million folks clamoring for more crap...could this day be a foreshadowing of how us consumers may behave when we have to clamor for food if our society collapses? The article below asks that question.

It seems with each passing year the madness on Black Friday gets even worse. This year, there were reports of fights and rioting from coast to coast. It was estimated that over 180 million U.S. shoppers headed for the stores on Friday, and whenever you get that many people together there are going to be problems. But just how crazed ordinary Americans are getting over saving a little bit of money is deeply disturbing when you really start thinking about it. If people will go this wild just to save 40 percent on a television set, then what in the world are they going to do when they have been without food for a couple of days? If Americans will act like psychotic animals just to save 50 bucks, then what in the world will they do when they have lost everything and are desperate to survive?

All of us had better hope and pray that an economic collapse does not happen any time soon, because it is becoming increasingly apparent that the American people are not morally equipped to be able to handle one. Greed and selfishness have become so rampant in America that large segments of the population have totally forgotten how to be any other way.

See it here;

The article goes on to give 9 examples (with video) of the rampage at various places as folks all rioted in hopes of preparing early for the birth of The King.

"There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God." 2 Timothy 3:1

As you read this article and reflect on the words of Paul...ask yourselves if we aren't EXACTLY where Paul said we would be in the Last Days.

Even so...come Lord Jesus!

Silver Lining From WikiLeaks

So, was there any silver lining from all the damage done by Wikileaks?

WikiLeaks exposures are a dangerous precedent but have revealed to the world the Arabs’ private fears of the Iranian nuclear threat, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Monday.

He added that Israel was not damaged by the leaks, which at worst caused some embarrassment to American officials, who were quoted in diplomatic cables as using negative terms to describe several world leaders.

The documents officially revealed what everyone already knows from “sources” quoted in the media – that the Arab world is frightened of the prospect of a nuclear Iran.

The question now is whether Arab leaders will admit in public what they said through private diplomatic channels, the Prime Minister said. “More and more countries realize that Iran is the central threat… If they start saying it publicly, it can pave the road to peace."

See it here;

Of course we know there will be no TRUE peace in the region until the Prince of Peace comes following The Tribulation....BUT....what is interesting is that we know the Antichrist will sign a false peace agreement with the Arabs and Jews that will last for about 3 1/2 years. The Arabs and Jews will both be taken in by the promises of the Antichrist. It makes one wonder if this could be one of the circumstances that will bring Arabs and Jews together to discuss their common enemy....Iran.

We will need to watch this development.

Alien Life to be Revealed Today

Is this true? I have no idea. Could this be real? It could. Read the article and decide for yourselves. What I do know is that the world is being prepared for some grand deception.

(Nov. 29) -- A Michigan man claiming to possess an ice meteorite rich in extraterrestrial organisms will announce in a news conference Tuesday that alien life, at long last, has been found. The announcement will take place at a Ramada Inn in South Haven, Mich.

"I prayed for Jesus to send me an ice meteorite, because I knew it would be quite valuable," Duane P. Snyder, 65, said of the chunk of ice he found on a South Haven roadway in 2000.

Valuable indeed. For centuries, humankind has sought confirmation that it isn't alone in the universe. If Snyder's claim is accurate, the South Haven resident will be catapulted to worldwide fame, and the Ramada Inn, 50 miles west of Kalamazoo, will likely become an iconic landmark for the human race.

The Day the Dollar Died

We have quoted a few things from the National Inflation Association over the past few years. While we don't agree with EVERYTHING that they say (buy gold!!)...we find it interesting that they are shouting it from the rooftops that the U.S. dollar is going to collapse....and they believe it may be sooner than later.

They have done a really nice job on making videos explaining their views of hyper inflation and why they believe the dollar is going to collapse.

Their most recent video released just last week is titled, THE DAY THE DOLLAR DIED.

As of now it is fictional, but it is based on scenarios they see as very possible....and very close.

See it here;

If this scenario does play would certainly make Jesus' words true when he said, "the end will come like a flood."

I can say with 100% certainty that anyone who is putting their faith in the U.S. dollar is going to be extremely disappointed.

Senator Says Israel Must Divide

As the WikiLeaks mess continues to unravel, we find out that Senator John Kerry has publicly said that Israel must be willing to return the Golan Heights to Syria if they want to have a lasting peace.

Ummm......that ain't gonna happen.

United States Senator and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry said during a meeting with Qatar leaders last February that the Golan Heights must be returned to Syria and that east Jerusalem must become the Palestinian capital as part of an Israeli-Palestinian peace treaty.

In a cable reporting the meeting's content leaked Tuesday night on WikiLeaks, Kerry also stressed that Syrian President Bashar Assad continues to arm Hezbollah and intervene in Lebanese matters.

See it here;,7340,L-3991853,00.html

As you can see this conversation happened last February. I wonder if this has anything to do with the wild weather the U.S. has had for all of 2010? Remember that these conversations with U.S. leaders are crucial and critical to the USA as a nation. The Bible is clear that any nations that mess with God's Holy Land will be, "cut to pieces."

The article ends with a little tid-bit of truth spoken by an Arab leader in regards to the Persians;

The cable also stated that towards the end of the meeting, the Qatari Emir told Kerry that the Iranians can not be trusted. The Emir added that after 30 years of experience with Iran, they will say 100 words to you but you can believe only one.

Meanwhile, our President Obama has been appeasing the Iranians giving them YEARS for diplomacy to work...even though you can't believe a word they are saying. And now they are years closer to having a nuclear bomb with which to threaten the world. Just one other example of why this President has actually made the world a more dangerous place by showing the strongmen and bullies of the world that he would rather talk.

The world is actually the safest when the USA is extremely strong and respected....because the thugs of the world will stay in hiding knowing they could be taken out at any minute by the US military.

Frightened Germans

A few days ago we posted about the piggy bank in the Eurozone being emptied. Who is going to pay for Greece, Ireland, Portugal and maybe Spain? Of course the answer of who pays is always, "whoever has money". In this case its the Germans who have the money...but they are getting frightened themselves.

Credit default swaps (CDS) measuring risk on German, French and Dutch bonds have surged over recent days, rising significantly above the levels of non-EMU states in Scandinavia.

"Germany cannot keep paying for bail-outs without going bankrupt itself," said Professor Wilhelm Hankel, of Frankfurt University. "This is frightening people. You cannot find a bank safe deposit box in Germany because every single one has already been taken and stuffed with gold and silver. It is like an underground Switzerland within our borders. People have terrible memories of 1948 and 1923 when they lost their savings."

See it here;

Boxes stuffed with gold and silver? Interesting. We have pointed out the hyper-inflation that collapsed Germany following WWI. Remember the pictures of German women using wheelbarrows full of cash waiting in line to buy a loaf of bread? We may remember the pictures...but THEY remember the actual event.

Also remember that this event could happen in the USA as well. Please understand that in order for a one-world-currency to come into place...all the other major currencies will first need to fold up. And one possible way this could all come to pass would be the turning on of the paper-money printing presses all around the Western world.

If you print too much...the confidence can erode. And if the confidence is gone....the paper has no value. And if the paper has no value...the world will cry out for a new currency that DOES have value.

Hat tip to Mike S.

Political Meltdown

Have you been watching the news develop on this WikiLeaks bungle? In short, some private in the military (who is now in custody) downloaded a TON of classified documents that detail behind the scenes conversations between the U.S. government and a multitude of other governments around the world. These documents are now being released by some dude who has a website called WikiLeaks.

This is not just a tiny deal. This is a major deal because it reveals some top secret info that could push some governments to the brink when it is revealed (for instance) that Egypt and Saudi Arabia have been encouraging the U.S. government to use it's military to attack Iran.

The disclosures in the Times and four other major world news organizations could fuel a worldwide diplomacy crisis with the United States at its center. "It is nothing short of a political meltdown for U.S. foreign policy," said Der Spiegel, the German publication that, like The Times, obtained the secret cables.

The White House condemned the disclosure of classified documents and released a statement Sunday saying, in part: "We anticipate release of what are claimed to be several hundred thousand classified State Department cables on Sunday night that detail diplomatic discussions with foreign governments. By its very nature, field reporting to Washington is candid and often incomplete information. It is not an expression of policy, nor does it shape final policy decisions." The statement acknowledged that the cables could "compromise private discussions with foreign governments and opposition leaders,'' and warned that the disclosures put diplomats and intelligence and other officials at risk.

Now check this out;

In a critical article Sunday, Der Spiegel concluded: "Never before in history has a superpower lost control of such vast amounts of such sensitive information -- data that can help paint a picture of the foundation upon which U.S. foreign policy is built. Never before has the trust America's partners have in the country been as badly shaken. Now, their own personal views and policy recommendations have been made public -- as have America's true view of them."

See it here;

Ouch!! This could damage the U.S. reputation in ways we will spend months figuring out. Also it will no doubt be used as fuel for Islamic extremists who believe the USA works around the clock (as the Great Satan) to alter and control other countries.

I wonder why the CIA didn't simply dispatch someone to take this website and it's founder down? Who knows how many lives will now be at risk around the world because of this info getting out?

Finally, could this be another trigger point the further puts the world into distress? How much distress can we all handle before anarchy and unrest start breaking out on a global basis?
