China Preparing for Bretton Woods II

Many of you have heard me speak about and blog about Bretton Woods monetary agreement that took place following WWII.

For any new readers, here is a VERY brief reminder;

Most of the world was destroyed in WWII...except for America.  The leaders of the world all met at Bretton Woods resort out east to hammer out how the heck the world was going to rebuild its shattered currency and economic system.

Since America had 50% of the entire world's manufacturing capability and also had most of the was agreed upon that America would take the title (and responsibility) of having the earth's ONLY reserve currency.

We promised to print only $35 of currency for every ounce of gold we had on deposit at Fort Knox.  If you can find a dollar bill from the 1940's, you would see that printed right on the face of the paper money it said, "Exchangeable for gold"....meaning that our U.S. dollars WERE THE GOLD STANDARD for every one else in the world.

Every other currency in the world was pegged to the U.S. dollar.

In the early 1970's, the Federal Government needed lots of money to drop bombs on Viet Nam and Cambodia.  We didn't have enough gold in the vault to print enough money to buy the bombs that we President Nixon took us OFF the gold standard.

Going forward, our currency was now backed ONLY by the "Full faith and confidence" of the U.S. Government supplied by the U.S. Treasury.

"Holy crap Batman!  You can't be serious!", said the Boy-Wonder.'s true.

With that as a back you can see why this article is so interesting.

China Preparing To Impose Bretton Woods II Gold Standard
With continued volatility in the gold and silver markets, today acclaimed money manager Stephen Leeb told King World News the Chinese accumulated a remarkable 1,500 tons of gold last year, and they are preparing to demand a second Bretton Woods type meeting. This is a stunning interview because it lays out how the bulls will win the gold war, and how China will force that victory. Here is what Leeb had to say in this exclusive interview, which is his most powerful ever: “The flow of power and gold is going from West to East. China may have accumulated a staggering 1,500 tons of gold last year alone. China’s growth is now picking up steam as well. What is really stunning is how much the yuan has increased in terms of international transactions.”
“The usage of the yuan in international transactions has been increasing at an unbelievable 170% per year. That’s how fast the yuan has been increasing in terms of international transactions. So goes the gold, so goes the power, and you can see it in the prominence the yuan is gaining.
The Chinese definitely have a plan here and that is to get control of gold....
Have you ever heard the saying, "He with the gold makes the rules?"
So the bad news is that mayhem, anarchy, world-order disruption and chaos my soon be coming...because the baton or world power, as exercised through currency, may be falling away from America and into the hands of someone else.
The good news is that Jesus is coming...and all these things MUST happen!

6 Things Christians Should Quit Saying

I saw the headline of this blog post sitting on the side bar of Google News...and of course was intrigued.

What 6 things should Christians quit saying?  And why would one of the most liberal websites in the world have an article about Christians and what they need to quit saying?

The article will amaze you, and sadden you, on quite a few fronts.

Christians must stop saying the following things.

1. The Bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God.
It isn't inerrant and not likely even in the "original manuscripts."

2. We just believe the Bible.
That, too, is false. What you really believe is your interpretation of the Bible.

3. Jesus is the only way to heaven.
What you are really saying is, "The way we interpret John 14:6 is that Jesus was clearly drawing a line in the sand and telling his hearers and the world: 'If you do not believe in Me, you won't go to the Father when you die.'"

4. The rapture of Jesus is imminent.
Again, if you want to believe in some secret rapture of Christians from the earth just before the Tribulation, if you want to believe in and carry around in your hip pocket detailed charts and graphs of how its all going to happen, then so be it. But do the rest of us a favor and stop saying so in public.

5. Homosexuality is a chosen lifestyle and it is a sin against God.
This one issue, my friend, is on the outs. If you don't know that, you are more blind than the Republicans were in the last election.

6. The earth is less than 10,000 years old.
If you want to believe that Genesis is a scientific description of the origins of the universe, then have at it. Just stop insisting that those myths be taught in our public schools

Holy Rip-the-foundations-of-Christianity-to-shreds!!

Now here is the MOST amazing thing this author says:
There are scores of Christians, however, and I am one of them, who do not interpret Jesus' words in John 14 the same way. Just because I do not makes me no less Christian than you are. So stop drawing lines in the sand, please, between equally sincere followers of Jesus.

and then;

It is my hope these Christians will know there are equally sincere Christians like myself and others who do not believe Jesus was drawing a line in the sand between him and some new religion he was creating and all the other religions of the world.

and then;

Now, there is one thing I think all Christians, including me, should remember -- no, should practice (and we should practice this between ourselves first, too) -- and that is the one simple thing Jesus once said would be the one-and-only thing the world would know us by...
Not our beliefs.
Not our doctrines.
Not our denomination's distinctions.
Not even our declarations.

Jesus said, "They will know you are my disciples by your love" (John 13:35).
When we love, what more needs to be said?

Friends!!   This guy pulled down everything it means to be a sincere follower of Jesus Christ and yet he claimed AT LEAST 3 SEPERATE TIMES TO BE A CHRISTIAN!!!

Jesus said that attacks would come from WITHIN THE FLOCK.  He also warned us that in the very last days many scoffers would come laughing at the thought of Jesus' return, and wolves in sheep's clothing would multiply.

We need to read this stuff and get ready to stand firm against our non-believing friends and families.

Jesus DID SAY, "I am the ONLY way to the Father." 

If we let this guy throw the ONLY REASON for Christ to come...we may as well pack up our church, sell everything and give the money to the food shelf and the GAY LOVE ADVANCEMENT ORGANIZATION and the CHRISTIAN PORN MAKERS OF AMERICA.  Our 'religion' would be worthless.

Call Down Fire From the Sky

Revelation tells us that the Antichrist will be able to call down fire from the sky in the sight of men.

Of course this will be during The we will be gone, BUT, it makes me wonder if this will have some sort of connection to UFO's and what people left behind will believe are extra-terrestrial ships and the 'visitors' who may be in them?

Today we have this headline;

UFO sightings on the rise in South Africa

Sightings of unidentified flying objects off the coast of Cape Town have increased dramatically and may indicate that the inhabitants of the Mother City are under surveillance by life from another planet, according to the founder of a website set up to log such incidents.

Gert Jordaan, founder of UFO Research of SA, said that between February 21 and February 27 many people reported seeing bright orange lights and flames in the sky.

He said that while some sightings could be attributed to meteor showers, others could have a more interesting explanation.

"Though meteors do glow orange, some of the sightings reported radical change in direction and speed. Some objects even remained stationary for five minutes or so. There might be some UFO phenomena occurring in areas around Cape Town," he told the Times newspaper.

Mr Jordaan said one other explanation was that there could be "some top-secret aircraft" being tested in the Western Cape.

"The second possibility is that life from another planet is surveying ours for making contact and offering knowledge."

Nicola Loaring, outreach astronomer for the South African Astronomical Observatory, told the newspaper that the most likely explanation for all the sightings were meteor showers, which are made up of small rocks that burn up as they enter the Earth's atmosphere.

"They are very common. They glow orange, sometimes green, can change colour, and usually end up white," she said.

She added that people might be more aware of such occurrences, especially since the recent repetition of end-of-the-world predictions.


Flames in the sky??  Lights changing directions rapidly??  Meteors?  End of the world predictions??  Life from another planet making contact and offering knowledge?

Goodness!!  The possibilities are endless!!

Here is another possibility about "aliens" coming to earth and offering us "knowledge";

1 Timothy 4:1
The Spirit clearly says that in later times (Last Days) some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons."

Some still say to me, "But Dennis, come on now!   Other intelligent life forms that aren't human??  You have been watching too many Sci-fi movies!"

My question in return is, "Explain to me what a cherubim is.  What about a Seraphim?  What about a nephilim?  How about Gabriel the archangel?  Are they humans? No.  Do they have intelligence?  Yes.  Are they in the Bible?  Yes.  How many of them have thrown in with Satan to deceive men?  What would they look like if they were trying to deceive men?"

Youth! Don't Let Granparents Steal Your Money!

This article is kind of interesting when you contemplate how Social Security works...and you realize that the people collecting it today did NOTHING to stop the train wreck that they clearly knew was coming. 

Some would say that the older folks had the attitude of, "As long as I get mine...I could care less what happens when I am dead!"

We certainly hope that isn't the case....but sadly, human nature is a fickle, greedy beast.

Stan Druckenmiller, one of the best- performing hedge fund managers of the past three decades, has a warning for the youth of America: Don’t let your grandparents steal your money.

Druckenmiller, 59, said the mushrooming costs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, with unfunded liabilities as high as $211 trillion, will bankrupt the nation’s youth and pose a much greater danger than the country’s $16 trillion of debt currently being debated in Congress.

“While everybody is focusing on the here and now, there’s a much, much bigger storm that’s about to hit,” Druckenmiller said in an hour-long interview with Stephanie Ruhle on Bloomberg Television’s Market Makers. “I am not against seniors. What I am against is current seniors stealing from future seniors.”

Druckenmiller said unsustainable spending will eventually result in a crisis worse than the financial meltdown of 2008, when $29 trillion was erased from global equity markets. What’s particularly troubling, he said, is that government expenditures related to programs for the elderly rocketed in the past two decades, even before the first baby boomers, those born in 1946, started turning 65.

In 2011, Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare accounted for 44 percent of the government’s $3.7 trillion in expenditures, up from 34 percent in 1990, according to statistics compiled by the government’s Bureau of Economic Analysis.

“The seniors have a very, very powerful lobby,” Druckenmiller said. “They keep getting more and more transfer payments” from younger generations through what’s essentially a pay-as-you-go system, he said.


Today he sees an even bigger reason for concern because of the government’s massive unfunded liabilities. He also sees trouble with what he calls its trickle-down monetary policy.

The Federal Reserve’s decision to hold interest rates near zero and buy $85 billion of assets a month is pumping up the stock market, all with the hope that rich people will spend those gains, and that money will trickle down to the rest of the country.

While stocks may continue to rise for a while because companies are buying back shares and retail investors are coming back to the market in search of returns, the gains probably won’t last, Druckenmiller said.


Dang it!!  Can't we just all enjoy the record heights of the stock market??  Can't we just all revel in the wonder of how the 'god of the DOW' just continues to come roaring matter how far down it has been beaten??

Can't we all just believe the AARP lie that many of today's seniors keep saying, "It's not an entitlement!  We earned that money and worked hard for it and now they are just paying me MY MONEY back that was held in MY SAVINGS!!"

Why do have to keep nit-picking and scab pulling and keep bringing up this inconvenient truth that the system has been a PAY AS YOU GO system for quite some time now?...meaning THERE ISN'T ANY SAVINGS IN SOCIAL SECURITY!!

Why can't today's seniors realize they are stealing money from tomorrow's seniors?  Why can't they take a big ol' pay cut today so TODAY'S WORKERS won't be homeless and penniless tomorrow because we gave the seniors all OUR MONEY and signed all the IOU's today to pay for the mythical pension plan and all that expensive health insurance that seniors demand WE PAY FOR??

Some seniors will say, "But Dennis, I need every penny I receive from Social Security!  I can't afford for the government cut a single penny!!"

To which the grand kids will answer, "But grandma, I can't even make my student loan payments working for $9/hr at the Holiday Inn and I don't have ANY health insurance.  I need every penny to live today...and I have another 70 years to try and survive!!  Why should you get all the money?"

North Korea Vows to Nuke America

Kim Jong Il has been dead for a few years now.  We called him the 'gopher in a pant suit' when he was alive. 

When he died he left his starving, ignorant and tortured kingdom to his loving son, Kim Jong Un.  We still haven't come up with a good nick name for if you think of one, please let us know.


Today we learn that the Chubby numb-skull from the North has now vowed to nuke America!

What??  I would have sworn that I read somewhere that Obama had hit the 'reset' button with North Korea!!  Did that Porky from the North not get the White House Memo??    Stuuuupid!!!

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — North Korea is vowing a pre-emptive nuclear strike against the United States. The harsh rhetoric Thursday comes hours ahead of a vote by U.N. diplomats on whether to level new sanctions against Pyongyang for its recent nuclear test.
An unidentified spokesman for Pyongyang’s Foreign Ministry said the North will exercise its right for “pre-emptive nuclear strikes on the headquarters of the aggressors” because Washington is pushing to start a nuclear war against the North.
Such inflammatory rhetoric is common from North Korea. But it has been coming regularly in recent days. North Korea is angry over the possible sanctions and over upcoming U.S.-South Korean military drills.
Fox News has more on what’s prompted the rhetoric:
North Korea is angry over the possible sanctions and over upcoming U.S.-South Korean military drills. At a mass rally in Pyongyang on Thursday, tens of thousands of North Koreans protested the U.S.-South Korean war drills and sanctions.
The U.N. Security Council is set to impose a fourth round of sanctions against Pyongyang in a fresh attempt to rein in its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.
Russia’s U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin, the current council president, said the council will vote on the draft sanctions resolution Thursday morning.
The resolution was drafted by the United States and China, North Korea’s closest ally. The council’s agreement to put the resolution to a vote just 48 hours later signaled that it would almost certainly have the support of all 15 council members.

Dang nuclear bombs!  There are so dangerous!!  I don't know why they don't just ban them!  I mean think about it...if we could pass a universal law and explain in great detail how damaging nuclear material is to the fish, the birds, the air and even people....and then destroyed the whole U.S. nuclear arsenal as a show of good faith....then all these people would certainly join us in our quest to make the world a happier place!!

Sing with me now!....."I'd like to teach the world to perfect harmony....grow apple trees and honey bees and snow-white turtle doves...."

Well...let's start little with first off banning guns, then banning land mines, then banning bombs, then banning missiles, then banning nuclear missiles!!

Shhhh!!!....I can almost hear the Peace-train coming....

Chavez to be Resurrected with Jesus and 12th Imam!

"Who wants an atomic bomb?"

"I do!...I do!", said Iran's President, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

"Mahmoud, why do you want an atomic bomb so badly?"

"Because the 'perfect human being' told me I needed one," said Mahmoud.

"Why would the 12th Imam (perfect human) come out of the well he has been hidden in for 900 years to tell you such a thing?"

"Because he said I needed it to create world-wide chaos!  The world needs to be in compete chaos so that the 12th Imam can return, bringing Jesus with him, and together they can rule the world with perfect Islamic law...after they kill anyone who won't convert to Islam!",  answered Mahmoud.

"I see.  Will anyone else be coming back with the 12th Imam and Jesus?"

"Yes!  Hugo Chavez!!", exclaimed Mahmoud, barely able to contain his excitement.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has predicted that Hugo Chavez would be resurrected along with Jesus and a sacred Muslim prophet.

“I have no doubt he will come again along with all the righteous people and the Prophet Jesus and the only successor of the righteous generation, the perfect human,” Ahmadinejad said in a statement released in Persian on the president's official website Wednesday, the New York Times reported.
The "perfect human" refers to the Hidden Imam, who Shiite Muslims believe disappeared in the ninth century but expect to re-emerge.

Ahmadinejad also stood behind Vice President Nicolas Maduro's allegation that Venezuela's "enemies" were somehow responsible for infecting Chavez with the cancer that killed him, Agence France-Presse reported.
Wednesday was declared a national day of mourning in Iran as well, according to AFP.


So you think it would be a little problem or a big problem to let little Mahmoud get the launch codes for an ICBM with a nuclear warhead screwed on the end of it?

If you were Israel....would you ever let him get to that point?

If you were Obama....would you ever let him get to that point?

Please don't be surprised if ANY DAY NOW you wake up to the news that Israel has destroyed numerous targets with a massive air assault into Iran and that Iran has responded by launching thousands of missiles into Israel and at U.S. Military bases and forces in the region.

Of course I don't KNOW that this will happen...I just won't be surprised if it does.

"Don't Judge" Those Who Enjoy Bestiality

Certainly, we KNEW it would follow close on the heals of the requirement that we ALL ACCEPT gay sex as a NORMAL expression of human sexuality...and here it is.

On Saturday afternoon, Yale hosted a “sensitivity training” in which students were asked to consider topics such as bestiality, incest, and accepting money for sex.

During the workshop, entitled, "Sex: Am I Normal," students anonymously asked and answered questions about sex using their cell phones, and viewed the responses in real time in the form of bar charts.

Survey responses revealed that nine percent of attendees had been paid for sex, 3 percent had engaged in bestiality, and 52 percent had participated in "consensual pain" during sex, according to an article published in the Yale Daily News on Monday.

"People do engage in some of these activities that we believe only for example perverts engage in,” she said. “What the goal is is to increase compassion for people who may engage in activities that are not what you would personally consider normal.”

“It tries to get people to be more sensitive … to sexual diversity,” McDevitt told Campus Reform in an interview on Monday. “We’re not all heterosexual, able-bodied folks who have standard missionary sex.”

"I think that's what the point of the workshop was — to bring up things we thought we so taboo and desire or urges we criticize are just regular parts of sexual psychology," he said.
During the workshop, McDevitt taught the approximately 40 students that just because people think something is deviant does not mean that it is bad.

“It’s sensitivity training,” McDevitt told Campus Reform. “Don't judge other people, because we all have something we are embarrassed about.”


And there it is again!..."Don't judge!"  That is certainly the battle cry of atheists, perverts, adulterers, greedy, drunkards, etc....  They don't want anyone telling them that what they are doing is sinful!

If some woman in Vegas wants to hump a dog..."Don't judge!  Be sensitive to HER needs!  How about a little compassion!  She just wants satisfaction in life just like everybody else!  Just because she isn't on YOUR path doesn't mean she is lost!"

How sad when you look at the history and foundation of Yale....and now look at what they allow on campus.

Yale's charterThis vision was fulfilled in 1701, when the charter was granted for a school “wherein Youth may be instructed in the Arts and Sciences [and] through the blessing of Almighty God may be fitted for Publick employment both in Church and Civil State.”

Of course this shouldn't surprise should sadden us but it shouldn't surprise us.  If you went to the once great Lutheran colleges, Baptist colleges, Methodist colleges, you would find GLBT clubs and witness lots of drunkenness, casual sex, lack of Bible knowledge and lots of kids trying to look and act JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE WORLD.

America may have started as a place where the light of Jesus Christ was meant to shine for all the world to see.....but that light is starting to go dim.

Thank the Lord that as our light goes dim, it is beginning to burn bright in China, Iran, parts of Africa and other previously dark places.

Severed Animal Heads in Israel

The book of Revelation tells us that when the pale horse is released during The Tribulation that it's rider will be named Death and that Hades will be following close behind.  They will be given power over 1/4 of the earth to kill by sword (war), famine, plague, and wild animals.

Wait...what?  Wild animals will be killing people?  You mean like wolves, coyotes, bears, lions, tigers, etc...

Yep, that's what God says.

So today we find a bunch of severed animal heads around Israel.  Yep, the PETA folks are in Israel too...and they were putting the severed heads around in the streets of Israel to protest the killing of animals.

I'm guessing that those PETA folks are really going to be mad when the Third Temple gets built in Jerusalem and the daily slaughter of animals for sacrifice gets ramped up?

"Every given moment, here and abroad billions of animals are tortured and murdered, which are all individuals that wished to live in peace and well being. The problem lays in the human species it self, which excluding in some rare exceptions are violent, destructive and imperialistic. This is a war in which we will not lose, because a forfeit here would mean the continuation of the most horrific oppression ever devised. This action was carried out in the name of all those whose screams you refuse to hear, whose anguish you remove from your hearts, ears and conscience," the statement read.

 "The walls of the slaughterhouses have long been transparent, the egg farms, dairy farms, vivisection labs, 'animal shows' and clothing industries atrocities are open for all to see and yet you remain silent. Our grandchildren will ask us one day: Where were you during the Holocaust of the animals? What did you do against these horrifying crimes? We won't be able to offer the same excuse for the second time, that we didn't know."


"So Dennis, what the heck does your mention of wild animals killing people during The Tribulation have to do with PETA of Israel putting severed heads all around?"

Simple.  Because I wonder if these PETA folks will still believe that ALL ANIMALS are "individuals that wished to live in peace and well being..."  while they are being chased by lions, tigers and bears and being torn to shreds and devoured by them?

Also of interest...if you went to these very PETA people that just compared killing animals for food to The Holocaust and asked them where they stand on the millions of babies aborted every year...they would set down down their "SAVE THE ANIMALS!" banner and pick up their "FETUSES ARE NOT HUMAN BEINGS!" banner.

They APPROVE of the murder of babies...but are outraged at the killing of goats.

Can you say, "Satanic deception?"

New Psalm 23, Obama is My Shepherd....

Friends, this is getting bizarre.  The Wall Street Journal had this in the Opinion section written by best-selling author, Mark Helprin.  Coincidentally, he is a Jew.

I only cut and paste about half the article below so you really must go to the article and read the whole thing....then print it and hang it on your fridge for others to read.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of debt, I fear no bankruptcy, for Obama is my shepherd. He prepareth a table of food stamps before me, and maketh me lie down beside waters He hath cleansed and seas He hath made recede, even though the bad Republicans wisheth the earth to be burnt unto a cinder, and will not buy the electric car that is good, for it hath zero emissions, and receiveth its power from a power plant, which hath not zero emissions, but the ways of the President are mysterious.

He hath told the stubborn Israelites, evil builders of apartments, that they know not their own interests and He does, and know not what they do, when they fear the nuclear weapon of the Persians. The ways of the President are mysterious. He alloweth the Persians to get the nuclear weapon (unless He hath something up His sleeve), for He knoweth that when they behold Him they will stay their hand, and not burn the Israelites unto a cinder, as they pronounce.

Yea, though I accumulate debt higher than the mountains of Gilboa, and the deadbeats skip like rams, I shall not want, for Bernanke maketh funny money, and the President smiles upon the land, but not upon the bad Republicans. For they wisheth to live within their means, which surely must be evil. And what would you expect from people who are suspicious of Social Security? And wisheth to burn the earth unto a cinder.

Fear not the Chinois, whose power waxes as ours wanes, for someday thy children's children shall journey over the sea that Obama hath made recede, west of the land of Geffen and Famous Amos, to build railroads for Beijing. Then the Third World will have inherited the earth, and the strong will have been laid low, which is good, and which is also the Democratic platform.

But arithmetic notwithstanding, I will dwell in the house of Obama all the days of my life. (Why not four terms, and what about Michelle? For the Constitution liveth.) And, the earth having been purified, surely it will be good when—and where do I apply for—government assistance will be the only thing left.


Yes, the article is VERY cleverly written....but make no mistake about it...this was not written for entertainment.  This is a warning.

The divide is growing in this nation, people.  Members of the same family are divided.  Half the family are so cheerful that gay marriage, gun bans and 'free' medical care are coming that they are almost giddy whenever they see Obama....while the other half screams, "Can't you see what this guy is doing?  We are going to collapse into a sea of chaos!!"

Others believe that our charismatic president is actually hell-bent on letting America implode...because Obama actually believes in his heart of hearts that America has been BAD for the little guy, black guys, Indians and Latinos.  So by letting her implode...we can have a "reset" button where socialism can bloom and the deer and the antelope can play!!

Maybe my earthly pessimism today is simply because it's 25 degrees, cloudy and setting up to snow 9 inches....maybe all of this pessimism will simply vanish (poof!) once the sunshine and green grass come to Minnesota in a few months?

Or MAYBE all these warnings coming almost every day from numerous directions and authors are because something unimaginable IS coming...and life as we know it could be gone forever?  And we Americans, who eat most of our meals at Applebees and Arby's, are going to be so blown away that we are going to have to run to the store to buy some oil for our lamps....only to find that the oil is gone. (see Parable of the Ten Virgins)

For a very concise account of HOW our nation got to this point....please read the short, little book by Erwin Lutzer titled, WHEN A NATION FORGETS GOD.

Oh, and one final thing...Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Glenn Beck WILL NOT BE ABLE TO FIX THIS!!  This is a spiritual problem.

Hat tip to Becky M. for giving me that book.

Team Obama in War with Reporters?

When Obama was campaigning back in 2007 he said, if elected, his team would run the most transparent White House in the nation's history.  Everything they would do would be right there for everyone to examine.  There would be peace, love, joy, trust and mutual respect between Obama and the (mostly) liberal MSM reporters who make up the White House Press Corp.

Now, five years later some are saying that the Obama White House is incredibly secretive.  And now if the Press doesn't ask the questions that Team Obama wants asked OR if they dare to disagree with Obama's view on some item...they can be in trouble.

Last week, one of the most famous White House reporters of all time, Bob Woodward, got sideways with the White House...and now, finally, some folks are saying, "Who is this Obama guy?"

The brouhaha between journalist Bob Woodward and the White House appears to be dying down, but it offers a window into the unhealthy antagonism that exists between the West Wing and the mainstream media.

Like previous administrations, Obama's advisers are trying to force-feed the press corps with their version of reality, and they sometimes give the impression they don't respect the men and women who cover the presidency. Their tactics include bullying, hassling, and, yes, threatening reporters in an effort to get them to back down from their stories or their lines of inquiry. The threats can include warnings that a reporter will lose whatever access he or she has to Obamaworld. In other cases, administration figures or Obama's allies outside government threaten to publicly challenge a reporter's credibility, sometimes with the accompanying use of foul or insulting language.

I've had my share of dustups with White House officials, as have many other journalists from major mainstream news organizations that cover the White House. It's par for the course to be yelled at or confronted by an angry aide. Over the years, and through covering five presidencies, I've learned that such tensions go with the territory. But the problems of incivility and mistrust are getting worse and they go beyond the run-in that Sperling had with Woodward, a respected reporter who helped to break the Watergate story in the mid 1970s, and who has written many books and articles since then about the internal workings of the presidency.

To many White House reporters, the incident was a familiar example of White House excess in selling its message. Another concern in the press corps is that, beyond the Woodward-Sperling fuss, the Obama White House is using every opportunity to bypass the mainstream media, but unlike its predecessors the Obama team has been particularly successful at it. Part of the reason is that the MSM today have relatively low credibility with the public, and the media's objections about lack of access don't resonate with everyday people the way they used to.

Just as important, Team Obama is adept at using new ways of communicating, such as Facebook, Twitter, and other social media, in addition to its E-mail list of millions of supporters, to transmit its message unfiltered by the MSM.

But in the process, something important has been lost. Journalists who cover Obama today don't really know him, no matter how many of the president's speeches, news conferences and activities they attend. They have virtually no relationship with him, so they don't know how his mind works and what priorities he really has on budget cuts and many other topics. White House staffers don't adequately fill in the blanks as they did in the past, such as under Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and Bill Clinton. As a result, much of the Obama presidency remains murky.


"Obama presidency remains murky"?  Was that just said by U.S. News and World Reports? 

Mistrust, incivility, force-feeding the press corps, bullying those who disagree?....this all starts to sound like a story we have seen 1930's Germany.

I have said all along that I don't believe Obama is the Antichrist, but that, instead, he is a foreshadowing of the Antichrist.

He comes into power during a difficult time, promising hope and change and then blames our problems on fat-cats, greedy businesses and those who "aren't willing to pay their fair share."  He next blames violence on guns and now does a 180 on gay marriage.  Who is this guy?  Does anyone really know?  He hasn't submitted a budget in 5 years and simply continues to insist that we keep giving him more money to pay the 48,000,000 who are on Food Stamp Program, the millions on unemployment and the millions living in "free" housing....and I'm guessing MOST of those folks are Obama voters.

What do you think MAY happen if a really big national catastrophe were to 9/11 times 10?  Or huge earthquake?  Or huge default on debt which leads to huge panic?  Or huge drought that sends food prices skyrocketing and sets off riots across the country??

Do you have ANY DOUBT that Team Obama would use the excuse of "restoring order" to maybe put off elections, close up transparency even more, seize guns for 'national security' reasons, seize gold to stave off collapse, and claim that ANYONE who didn't cooperate with HIS IDEAS were to be deemed "enemies of the state"?

Do you think Germany just fell into Hitler because they were stupid?  Ummm...even if you do believe that....look around you and ask yourself how smart you believe the typical U.S voter to be?

We all need to be asking Christ to return....THY KINGDOM COME!...and then we need to be VERY BUSY making disciples to all who come into our sphere and are open to hearing the Truth of Jesus Christ.

China "Fully Prepared" for Currency War

History shows us that first it's currency wars...which leads to trade wars....which leads to shooting wars.

Currency is the paper money that countries print.  It is really just pieces of paper with numbers and writing on it and is backed by the confidence the people put in the government that is printing the paper.

As we recently said, 100% of paper currency down through history has failed.  ALL OF THEM ultimately fail.  So will the U.S. is simply a matter of time.

Remember, countries will try and DEVALUE their paper money in hopes that it will make their products cheaper to foreign buyers and give their economy a jump start.  Maybe that WILL work, in the short term, but it almost always leads to inflation...since their is more paper out there chasing a the same amount of products.

China knows that IS THE GAME that many Western nations are playing and they have made $trillions of dollars in the past decade selling CHEAP products and they are NOT GOING to sit idly by while the other nations play a currency game.

AFP - A top Chinese banker said Beijing is "fully prepared" for a currency war as he urged the world to abide by a consensus reached by the G20 to avert confrontation, state media reported on Saturday.

Yi Gang, deputy governor of China's central bank, issued the call after G20 finance ministers last month moved to calm fears of a looming war on the currency markets at a meeting in Moscow.

Those fears have largely been fuelled by the recent steep decline in the Japanese yen, which critics have accused Tokyo of manipulating to give its manufacturers a competitive edge in key export markets over Asian rivals.

Yi said a currency war could be avoided if major countries observed the G20 consensus that monetary policy should primarily serve as a tool for domestic economy, the Xinhua report said.
But China "is fully prepared", he added.

"In terms of both monetary policies and other mechanism arrangement, China will take into full account the quantitative easing policies implemented by central banks of foreign countries."


Please remember that China and Japan are already upset with each over their individual claims over some tiny a currency war could really pour salt on an already festering wound.

The nations are shaking....
