Mr. Varoufakis, who kept reminding everyone that he is a professor of game theory, believed that the European leaders would prefer to make concessions now rather than manage the disruption of a Greek default. He must not be familiar with the Tyler Durden school of negotiation: the first rule of using game theory is you do not talk about using game theory. What’s more obvious is that Syriza didn’t understand what the game is.
David Einhorn Says Varoufakis “Must Not Be Familiar With The Tyler Durden School Of Negotiation”
This is not about math; it’s about politics. Consider that the main difference between Greece and France is that France is a big fan of extend and pretend. And as long as France says it will pay, its bonds might yield just a bit more than Germany’s. Though Greece has a superficially unmanageable ratio of debt to GDP, the debt had been restructured so that there is little debt service burden for the next several years. Politically, European leaders prefer to leave the future problems in the future. Syriza’s refusal to play along is a problem not just for bondholders but also for those holding seats of power. The European leaders fear that if Syriza can claim even a moral victory, it will inspire other European countries to oust their current leaders in favor of populist governments who campaign on the promise of debt repudiation.
Though Mario Draghi promised he would do whatever it takes to save the euro, that doesn’t include lifting a finger to assist Greece financially or in any way signal that the ECB has Greece’s back. Just days prior to the January elections, Mr. Draghi announced that the ECB would exclude Greece from quantitative easing for at least six months. Doing whatever it takes is proving to be a conditional promise, as denying Greece access to the capital markets is a key tenet of the European strategy to pressure Syriza.
For anyone still missing the joke, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda summarized the view of the global central planners when he said, ” trust that many of you are familiar with the story of Peter Pan, in which it says, ‘the moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease forever to be able to do it.’ Yes, what we need is a positive attitude and conviction.” Perception supplants reality. The moment leaders (or markets) start making it about the math, gravity comes into play.
The result is that Europe is unwilling to allow Syriza a face-saving compromise, even if that means Greece collapses and the rest of Europe suffers. At this writing, Syriza has capitulated by proposing a deal which leaves Greece with even more austerity than when negotiations began and no actual debt forgiveness. This might not be enough, as the grand goal of the European negotiators appears to be to discourage other countries from electing populists.
For six years you shall sow your field, and for six years you shall prune your vineyard and gather in its fruits. 4 But in the seventh year there shall be a sabbath of solemn rest for the land, a sabbath to the Lord; you shall neither sow your field nor prune your vineyard.
The first man [was] from out of earth, made of dust (earthly-minded); the second Man [is] the Lord from out of heaven. 48 Now those who are made of the dust are like him who was first made of the dust (earthly-minded); and as is [the Man] from heaven, so also [are those] who are of heaven (heavenly-minded). 49 And just as we have borne the image [of the man] of dust, so shall we and so [g]let us also bear the image [of the Man] of heaven. 50 But I tell you this, brethren, flesh and blood cannot [become partakers of eternal salvation and] inherit or share in the kingdom of God; nor does the perishable (that which is decaying) inherit or share in the imperishable (the immortal).
51 Take notice! I tell you a mystery (a secret truth, an event decreed by the hidden purpose or counsel of God). We shall not all fall asleep [in death], but we shall all be changed (transformed)
1 Corinthians 15
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the [sound of the] last trumpet call. For a trumpet will sound, and the dead [in Christ] will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed).
53 For this perishable [part of us] must put on the imperishable [nature], and this mortal [part of us, this nature that is capable of dying] must put on immortality (freedom from death). 54 And when this perishable puts on the imperishable and this that was capable of dying puts on freedom from death, then shall be fulfilled the Scripture that says, Death is swallowed up (utterly vanquished [h]forever) in and unto victory.
2 Peter 3
Nevertheless, do not let this one fact escape you, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord does not delay and is not tardy or slow about what He promises, according to some people’s conception of slowness, but He is long-suffering (extraordinarily patient) toward you, not desiring that any should perish, but that all should turn to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will vanish (pass away) with a thunderous crash, and the [[a]material] elements [of the universe] will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up.
Petrus Romanus Pope Francis: Persecution of Christians Worldwide “World War Three”
Author Tom Horn says the Catholic Church is trying to bring about the end times by following certain prophecies regarding the pope.
More than 50 years ago, a Jesuit priest predicted the resignation of Pope Benedict—to the day—and now Horn and others are looking at his research.
“Was he divinely inspired? Was he demonically inspired?” Horn asks. “Because we know demons know things about times and dispensations, too.”
Horn’s taking a closer look, as should you.
Undoubtedly the vast majority of people, when looking at Washington, DC, and at the Vatican, never comprehend how these cities constitute one of the greatest open conspiracies of all time. There, reproduced in all their glory and right before the world’s eyes, is an ancient talismanic diagram based on the history and cult of Isis, Osiris, and Horus, including the magical utilities meant to generate the deity’s return. The primeval concept—especially that of sacred Domes facing Obelisks—was designed in antiquity for the express purpose of regeneration, resurrection, and apotheosis, for deity incarnation from the underworld to earth’s surface through union of the respective figures—the Dome (ancient structural representation of the womb of Isis) and the Obelisk (ancient representation of the erect male phallus of Osiris). This layout, as modeled in antiquity, exists today on the grandest scale at the heart of the capital of the most powerful government on earth—the United States—as well as in the heart of the most politically influential church on earth—the Vatican. Given this fact and the pattern provided by the apostle Paul and the Apocalypse of John (the book of Revelation) that the end times would culminate in a marriage between political (Antichrist) and religious (False Prophet) authorities at the return of Osiris/Apollo, it behooves open-minded researchers to carefully consider this prophecy in stone, as it defines the spiritual energy that is knowingly or unknowingly being invoked at both locations with potential ramifications for Petrus Romanus, the year 2012, and beyond.
The US Capital has been called the “Mirror Vatican” due to the strikingly similar layout and design of its primary buildings and streets. This is no accident. In fact, America’s forefathers first named the capital city “Rome.” But the parallelism between Washington and the Vatican is most clearly illustrated by the Capitol building and Dome facing the Obelisk known as the Washington Monument, and at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican by a similar Dome facing a familiar Obelisk—both of which were, according to their own official records, fashioned after the Roman Pantheon, the circular Domed Rotunda “dedicated to all pagan gods.” This layout—a Domed temple facing an Obelisk—is an ancient, alchemical blueprint that holds significant esoteric meaning.
WATCH: Is Pope Francis the Last Pope Before Christ’s Return? <–Of course he is, everything, all the signs and events upon this generation, confirm this prophetic fulfillment.

Antichrist Iranian President Hassan Rouhani addressed his nation following talks with the P5+1* coalition on the future of Antichrist Iran’s nuclear… .
TBD Radio: Iranian President Hassan Rouhani National Address.
US: ‘Real progress’ in Iran talks, but issues remainIran’s Zarif tells reporters there will be no deal Monday; Rouhani posts — then hastily deletes — celebratory tweet.
The deal in the works — “as we know it” — >>>would permit<<< Antichrist Iran “to be in >>>the nuclear threshold zone<<< and even >>>become<<< a nuclear threshold state,” Ya’alon said.
After such a deal is reached, “of course we will need to continue to prepare to defend ourselves with >>>our own forces<<<,” he said.
“Essentially, the deal whitewashes all that Antichrist Iran has done in violation of decisions, including the Security Council’s, the international community’s and everything connected to nuclear proliferation,” he said.
Ya’alon reiterated Israel’s concern regarding a regional Antichrist nuclear arms race >>>triggered<<< by Antichrist Iran’s >>>arrival at the nuclear threshold<<<, mentioning Antichrist Turkey, Antichrist Saudi Arabia, and Antichrist Egypt in particular as states that would consider developing nukes to counterbalance Tehran.
Defense chief: Israel bracing for day after ‘bad deal’
He cautioned against Iran’s >>>support of terrorist groups<<< across the Antichrist Middle East, specifically Antichrist Hezbollah, Antichrist Hamas, Antichrist Islamic Jihad, and said that no deal concerning Antichrist Iran’s nuclear program entails curbing its missile program or support for Antichrist Houthi separatists in Antichrist Yemen.
“This of course >>>threatens<<< Antichrist Bahrain and Antichrist Saudi Arabia and >>>other states<<<, and >>>this matter isn’t up for discussion whatsoever<<<,” he said.
“In fact >>>after<<< the deal we’re getting Antichrist Iran as a >>>nuclear threshold state<<< that continues to support terrorism and political subversion, and especially is stronger economically,” Ya’alon said.
Antichrist NWO 666 Crypto Fascist 911 WAR CALL
Spain has shown that it is fully on board with the Brussels authoritarian direction of ending democracy. Those in power have simply convinced themselves that the people do not understand what is good for them so they must impose their will upon the people but raw force. How does this differ in any what from the justification of imposing communism? This is the death of all freedom and it is upon our doorstep.
Here are the new laws in Spain:
1. If you photograph security personnel and then share these images on social media: up to €30.000 fine (particularly if photo exposes violence used against a member of the public). This fine could increase depending on the number of Instagram or social media followers you have.
2. Tweet or retweet information or the “location of an organized protest” can now be interpreted as an act of terrorism as it incites others to “commit a crime” (now that “demonstrating” in many ways has become a crime). Sound “1984”-ish? Read about Orwell and his time in Spain.
3. Snowden-like whistle blowing is now defined as an act of terrorism. If you write for a local publication, be careful what you print, whom you speak to, and whether the government is listening.
4. Visiting or consulting terrorist websites – even for investigative purposes – can be interpreted as an act of terrorism. Make sure you use “Tor” browser, reject cookies, and don’t allow pop-ups. Not to mention, don’t post it on your Facebook timeline!
5. Be careful with the royal jokes! Any satirical comment against the royal family is a new crime “against the Crown”. For example, “What did Leticia and the Bishop have to say after they ––“ (SORRY CENSORED).
6. No more hassling elected members of the government or local authorities – even if they say one thing in order to be elected, but then go and do the exact opposite. Confronting them about this hypocritical behavior. Even if you see them in the street chatting to a street cleaner, dining at their favorite expensive restaurant, or having their shoes shined by that physics graduate who cannot find a decent job in the country, hassling them about their behavior is now a criminal offence.
7. Has your local river been so polluted by that plastic factory along the edge that all life has extinguished? Well, tough! Greenpeace or similar protests are now finable from €601–€30.000.
8. Protests in a spontaneous way outside Parliament are now illegal. For example if Parliament passes a hugely unpopular bill, or are debating something extremely important to you or your community, it is now finable from €601 – €30.000. Tip: Use Google Maps to protest just around the corner – but don’t tweet the location!
9. Obstructing an officer in the course of their business, “resisting arrest”, refusing to leave a demonstration when told, or getting in the way of a swinging baton are all now finable offences from €601 – €30.000.
10. Showing lack of respect to officers of the law is an immediate fine of €100 – €600. Answering back, asking a disrespectful question, making a funny face, showing your bottom to an officer of the law, or telling him/her that their breath reminds you of your dog’s underparts is now, sadly, not advisable.
11. Occupying, squatting, or refusing to leave an office, business, bank or other place until your complaint has been heard as a protest is now a €100 – €600 fine (no more flash mobs).
12. Digital protests: Writing something that could technically “disturb the peace” is a now a crime. Bloggers beware, for no one has yet defined whose peace you could be disturbing.
‘1984’ Comes To Europe – The End Of Freedom Of Speech In Spain
From Boston to Beijing, municipalities and governments across the world are pledging billions to create “smart cities”—urban areas covered with Internet-connected devices that control citywide systems, such as transit, and collect data
‘Smart Cities’ Will Know Everything About You
Despite the differences of opinion as to the exact origins of Man, there are a growing number of scientists and theologians who believe that at some point there was a great flood or climate change catastrophe which wiped out super-civilizations like Atlantis in a time period known as “pre-history.” These ancient civilizations were run by races of highly intelligent men and women who had access to technologies that in many respects are superior to the technologies we have today. The proofs of that assertion are the massive archaeological structures that have been left behind underwater or above ground as in the cases of the Egyptian pyramids, Incan temples, Mayan temples, and countless other structures around the world.
According to the Greek philosopher Plato, Atlantis was a super-civilization that was ruled by ten philosopher kings, or what could be termed a Scientific Elite or Technocratic Elite. Today, this concept has been passed down through thousands of years of human history, from the Tower of Babel in ancient Babylon, through the Egyptian god-kings, the emperors of Rome, and the European belief in the divine right of kings. The guiding philosophy of the Scientific Elite or Technocratic Elite is that they are genetically superior and more intelligent than the masses of humanity and therefore have the Darwinian right to rule.
Despite the outward façade of democracy in places like Europe and North America, the reality is that there exists a powerful elite who believe they are fully justified in ruling the world.
THE BABYLON CODE RESET & THE COMING OF THE TECHNOCRATIC UTOPIA
In 2012, Zbigniew Brzezinski, a top advisor to five U.S. presidents and co-founder of the Trilateral Commission with Rockefeller, warned of a “global political awakening” that was being driven by alternative radio, television, and the Internet. In 2010, Brzezinski said at the Council on Foreign Relations meeting in Montreal that “the major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.” There can be no other reasonable interpretation…this is a direct threat against all who oppose being enslaved and eventually exterminated.
Apparently, the elite believe in all-out fascism and total dictatorial control beneath a corporate façade of a button with a happy face on it.
4 For a thousand years in Your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night.

Warnings Signs Came From The Heavens And Were Ignored! Prophecy Is Unfolding Across The World As Babylon Is Set To Fall!
Luke 21:25 – “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring”
The bible warns that there will be “fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven,” in Luke 21:11, and in the first video below by Jason A, we see a compilation of news clips and headlines showing that before and after the Supreme Court decision on gay-marriage, what many see as “warning signs” did and continue to occur across the world.
“Off the chart” lightening strikes detected over DC by the DC Lightning Map Array, defeaning thunder from stroms described as the “scariest” witnesses could ever recall with “continuous lightning, pounding rain and roaring winds.”
The skies turned red as did the moon as reported in some of the news clips below as wildfires rage in the West.
A number of events occurred immediately after the Supreme Court ruling as well, including a freak fire at a water park in Taiwan during a gay pride event, which injured over 500 people, and described by witnesses as “hell.”
Much more in the first video below, which causes Jason to assert that “prophecy is unfolding around the world.”
VERY IMPORTANT!- The second video below a flashback from June 2014, where a stern warning was offered by Steve Quayle, given to him in May 2014, for those that continue to remain silent and how they will pay a very high price for that silence.
To my people who sit silently compromising with the Powers of Hell – Do you not know your silence is acquiescence to your own slaughter?

Shmitah and the Messiah: Could This Be the Year Before His Arrival?
^^^OK OK OK!!! HEYiiiiiiieeeee!!!! AHHHHHuh huhuhhuhuh!!!
YER NOT GOING TO BELIEVE THIS! BUT! WHILE READING THIS, REVELATION STRUCK AGAIN!
Ok, imagine this: You are sitting in a ”booth”. There is a person sitting in a booth in front of you, not directly but on your left and about 3 booths away. You are in a real place that exists in real life, but for some reason you can see the person clearly and there is no natural reason why you are unable to see the person you noticed sitting facing your direct from the booth they are sitting in.
Now imagine, somehow not being able to make out the face of that person does not really bother you too much and somehow you know they are a friend and that fact has been confirmed between you while sitting in the booths.
Ok, now imagine that from these booths you are able to see and hear a storm. This storm becomes more intense and destructive. It gets very load and obvious, then BOOM! Suddenly there is this massive bright pillar of fire and it looks just like the one in the ”Ten Commandments” movie with Charlton Heston as Moses.
Now imagine that this destructive force is coming to where you are sitting in the booth, and right when it becomes too obvious that where you are sitting is about to be overcome, at the same exact time you and the person who’s face you cannot see, the stranger that somehow confirmed is your friend, both you and ”he” stand up and shout ”MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD!” Then, you turn away from what is before you, coming toward where you are, and keep in mind that the stranger never looked back at the storm or the pillar of fire now coming the entire time he was facing your direction. Now imagine that as you are making that turn, in that impossibly short moment, you somehow realize that if your movement is not perfectly continuously forward in motion, without any hint of hesitation whatsoever, you shall be overcome as if you were the bride of Lot.
Consider, from the booth, what you witnessed was occurring over the American Capital city.
Now consider you saw this before you read this article, and now you are baring witness on this site.
The Babylonian Talmud in the Tractate of Sanhedrin, 97a, brings the verse from Amos 9:11:<-LOL
“On that day, will I raise up the fallen booth (Sukkah) of David.”
This verse comes in the context of a prophecy about God bringing the nation of Israel back from exile among the nations. Amidst descriptions of the days preceding the Messiah, the Talmud says:
“As it is written, in that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen. Our Rabbis taught: in the seven year cycle at the end of which the son of David will come-in the first year, this verse will be fulfilled.”
The Talmud is saying explicitly that the Messiah will come in the first year after the Shemitah. It should be noted that the Talmud describes the days before the Messiah in depth, and they are especially difficult times.
^^^OK! YOU COULD NOT POSSIBLY KNOW WHAT IT IS TO SEE THESE ANTICHRIST VERSIONS OF PROPHECY AFTER RECEIVING THE PROPHETIC REVELATION OF THE BOOTH! THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT COULD BE OFFERED AS AN ATTEMPT TO PROVOKE REVELATION CONFIRMED AMONG SAINTS! Lol, the watchful Saint’s do not require it, and the one’s that awake from their Antichrist ”Talmudic State” shall be at last provoked to tears by the revelation of Yahshua Christ Jesus as it is written in their due course at the end time during tribulation.
JUST KNOW THIS, G E T R E A D Y N O W! ! !
The demise of Christianity and Christians is planned and it is deliberate.

Water supplies to almost half of Kosovo’s capital city Pristina were turned off on Saturday after police arrested three people on terrorism charges close to an artificial lake.
Two other men were arrested later in the day. All face terrorism charges, police said, without giving any further details.
The Water Supply Company Prishtina said it had turned off its water treatment facility at Badovc lake after the arrests, apparently to check for any contamination.
“We are checking the quality of the water and we will not restart until the tests say the water is clean,” spokeswoman Arjeta Mjeku said.
Kosovo cuts off water to thousands after police arrest three in Antichrist ISIS poison ‘plot’
Mjeku said the lake supplied 40 percent of the capital with drinking water.
A police source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told Reuters that two of the suspects had been arrested last year on suspicion of traveling to Syria.
Security officials say more than 200 people from Kosovo have gone to fight in Syria and Iraq and more than 30 are believed to have been killed and there are concerns over the potential threat posed by those who return.
^^^Last check, the nations that dash their foot against the Burdensome Stone get broken toes. ”IS” it ironic that the Israelis are the only ones helping the Kurds survive truly? Lol. Yeah Joel, hello buddy, sure, the Antichrist Islamic Turkey ”IS” a Butterball of violent idiocy but it’s a fried Turkey. The Antichrist does not meet his end as the fried Antichrist Turk inside the Israel fryer,lol, his end is in Israel. Why Israel? Because it is protected up until his end for an obvious reason and it isn’t because our Father in Christ declared Turkey his end time favorite Hebrew National Hotdog. Where ”IS” the Kosher Beef Joel? Lol. Don’t go full blown putzie on us now.
Kurds announce they will attack Turkey dam construction sites
“The Turkish state took advantage of the cease-fire conditions not for a democratic political resolution but to gain an advantageous position in preparation of war by building dozens of guard posts, roads for military purposes and dams in order for a cultural genocide,” the statement said.
^^^WOE!!! If actual leaked evidence proves that the Executive Branch knew and had GPS tracking on the captured Christian girls the Antichrist muslims kidnapped raped and murdered and did not share the information to the Kenyan government, or more to the point, if the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual POTUS Clown is going to go to visit Kenya and they know that this is in fact the case, there is noway the Clown is going to survive that trip unscathed, if not certainly justly killed by the government of Kenya or any Kenyan. That would be something if he got a grave head wound and survived. Lol. If this case proves to be documented, it doesn’t matter what reason was given for withholding information on the movements of these captured Christians the Antichrist muslims raped and murdered, everyone goes to prison in this case; and if anyone involved in this case dares to go to Kenya, including the Clown, and this actually happened; and if you think about it there is no way that if intelligence capabilities were used the Executive Branch certainly would have the highest probability of knowing and withholding in this case, that would be way beyond covering up the cause for the 911 Benghazi murder of the U.S. Ambassador; which was at best dereliction and worse, a blatant cover up that resulted in the murder of Americans left to be slaughtered like Christian girls in Kenya. Kenya in this case is not under any restraint if the case is true, and they would not be out of order if they capture or reacted in kind with anyone involved that dared to resist being arrested with lethal force. If they put the offenders in a Kenyan prison and the case proves to be true everyone guilty of such an offense should remain behind bars for life, no possibility of parole and the penalty should reflect the proper amount of fine required to support the victims and their families if the case is proved to be true.
The fact that the Executive Branch already proved they do not consider the Christian pastor; imprisoned by the Antichrist Iranians along with the other Americans behind Antichrist Iranian muslim prison bars, worthy of consideration for release, as the first point of order, or even a last attempt, as part of the Antichrist Iran nuclear nonproliferation Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown Team preemptive Nobel Prize demand, well, that already proves the case against them as far as the proof of their withholding. It does not matter if the release of an American pastor; held as a criminal, just for being a Christian Pastor, by the Antichrist Iranian Muslim State is not a priority for the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown Team. The fact ”IS”, not demanding the immediate release, when you posses the highest level of leverage, due to the grave reality of the nuclear threat the Antichrist Iranian Muslim State blatantly declares in concert with their criminal conviction against the American Christian Pastor, lol, that proves the endorsement of the Antichrist Iranian Muslim State conviction by the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown nuclear agreement by intentional omission, AKA withholding the power and influence to do so. That is called Executive Branch level withholding in the form of betrayal and an act of dereliction and treason. Lol, the fact that Team Obozo is able to walk this Earth still is amazing enough, the fact that they are withholding like this is par for the course.
Put it this way, when they seal the nuclear deal and the Americans remain behind Antichrist Iranian Muslim State prison bars because the Antichrist NWO 666 Obozo 911 Homosexual Climate Change Clown actually followed through with their written statement that they do not consider the Americans convicted by the Antichrist Iranian Muslim State that are now held in the Antichrist Iranian Muslim Prison part of the demand of the Antichrist Iranian Muslim nuclear agreement, then you shall certainly know just how bad the sealed deal shall affect Americans. With that in mind, lol, consider the Israeli’s next move. Do you think they would even make an effort to prevent a WMD 911 Event in a place like NYC? Lol, or would that certainly provide all the geopolitical cover they shall ever require? Once you grapple with that in mind, don’t forget to look over your shoulder at the last two Adar 29 days. Lol. Is there time to bother walking anyone through the trillions and billions of payoff and Antichrist NWO 666 geostrategic geopolitical map maker’s 911 calls at this point? Lol, it is a bit late for that. What did Rick James say? ”Counterintelligence is a helluva drug”? Lol. Just ask HSBC, and Remember FDIC. LMAO!
Truly, what would be required of you if your military proxy wasn’t actually affectively under your influence and control in this ”prophetic Israeli” case? Lol. Would your preemptive defense/AKA offense allow for an alternative at this point that has even the remote possibility to fit the bill? Lol. Oh no.
Last month, the EU drafted a plan to counter what it sees as “Russian disinformation activities” calling for “promotion of EU policies” in the post-Soviet space and the implementation of measures against Russian media.

Censored By Sanction? Barclays Freezes Accounts Of Russia’s News Agency
What we are witnessing in Europe is the emergence of autocratic centralised “government” serving the dictate of finance capital, which imposes austerity on the general population regardless of democratic mandate. The administrative, technocratic centre for this rule-by-banker-oligarchy in Europe is Berlin, which is, in turn, answerable to the technocratic administration in Washington under the control of Wall Street. What we have known up to now as sovereign national governments will henceforth be mere functionaries for the global banker elite.
US Military Coup for Euro Meltdown?
The control of government by private corporate interests, with no democratic accountability, attests to the definition of fascism. As analyst Randy Martin comments: “What is taking shape in Europe and more so in the United States is the complete subjugation of government by finance capital. It is not an exaggeration or empty jargon to say that we in the West are succumbing to the rule of financial fascism.”
Banker-led technocratic administrations across Europe will engender rising popular protest and civil unrest. When American politicians talk about “meltdown” and their army generals talk about “securing Europe” what they really mean is securing Europe from its own angry people.
The irony is that 70 years after the defeat of fascism in Europe, Europe is coming full circle under the same phenomenon. This time instead of Nazi jackboots, we have American ones.
Russia Considers US Nuclear Bomb Test ‘Open Provocation’
While not its base case (unlike JPM and Citi) Goldman Sachs was expecting an adverse outcome from this weekend’s negotiations, and admits that this morning’s pre-deal announcment “is thus a positive surprise, at least from a shorter-run, tactical perspective.” So does (is) Goldman optimistic now on the outcome of the Greek deal for Europe and the prospects for further Eurozone utopia?
Echoing the harshly bitter sentiment of Wolfgang Munchau (and all non-Eurozone fanatics everywhere) who said that “The Eurozone As We Know It Is Destroyed“, this is what Goldman has to say:
Goldman: The Greek Solution “Exposes The Whole System To Collapse”
In other words, the only thing that could potentially “fix” Europe now, after an episode that may have terminally torn Europe apart following the stark juxtaposition in the “Grexit” reasoning “northern” vs “southern” countries, is closing the loop on Europe’s federalization.
Unfortunately, if there is one thing Europe would be least willing to do now is hand over sovereignty to the ultimate decision-maker, which once and for all, was revealed to be Germany.
Unless of course, Germany continues steamrolling all other insolvent, peripheral nations with gradual annexations of national sovereignty as it has just done with Greece, which will be forced to hand over 25% of its GDP in the form of a liquidation escrow fund to Brussels/Berlin to do as it sees fit.
At the recent Thunderbolts Project EU2015 Conference: Paths of Discovery, Dr. Donald Scott presented new groundbreaking evidence of the electromagnetic connection between the Earth and the Sun.
The electric universe theory states that the Sun is in essence an electrical discharge phenomenon, powered by electric currents flowing along the arm of the galaxy. Electrical circuitry connects the Sun and all planets, including the Earth, driving climate, weather, and Earth’s auroras.
The telltale sign of Birkeland currents at the poles of planets is counter rotational motions in atmospheric phenomena.
In this Space News, Dr. Scott discusses the new, visual evidence that Birkeland currents from the Sun are the cause of Earth’s auroras.
Evidence of the electromagnetic Sun – Earth connection
After this I heard what sounded like a mighty shout of a great crowd in heaven, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! Salvation and glory (splendor and majesty) and power (dominion and authority) [belong] to our God! 2 Because His judgments (His condemnation and punishment, His sentences of doom) are true and sound and just and upright. He has judged (convicted, pronounced sentence, and doomed) the great and notorious harlot (idolatress) who corrupted and demoralized and poisoned the earth with her lewdness and adultery (idolatry).
And He has avenged (visited on her the penalty for) the blood of His servants at her hand. 3 And again they shouted, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! The smoke of her [burning] shall continue to ascend forever and ever (through the eternities of the eternities).
4 Then the twenty-four elders [of [a]the heavenly Sanhedrin] and the four living creatures fell prostrate and worshiped [paying divine honors to] God, Who sits on the throne, saying, Amen! Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! 5 Then from the throne there came a voice, saying, Praise our God, all you servants of His, you who reverence Him, both small and great!
6 After that I heard what sounded like the shout of a vast throng, like the boom of many pounding waves, and like the roar of terrific and mighty peals of thunder, exclaiming, Hallelujah (praise the Lord)! For now the Lord our God the Omnipotent (the All-Ruler) reigns! 7 Let us rejoice and shout for joy [exulting and triumphant]! Let us celebrate and ascribe to Him glory and honor, for the marriage of the Lamb [at last] has come, and His bride has prepared herself..
Then I saw a single angel stationed in the sun’s [d]light, and with a mighty voice he shouted to all the birds that fly across the sky, Come, gather yourselves together for the great supper of God,
18 That you may feast on the flesh of rulers, the flesh of generals and captains, the flesh of powerful and mighty men, the flesh of horses and their riders, and the flesh of all humanity, both free and slave, both small and great!
19 Then I saw the beast and the rulers and leaders of the earth with their troops mustered to go into battle and make war against Him Who is mounted on the horse and against His troops. 20 And the beast was seized and overpowered, and with him the false prophet who in his presence had worked wonders and performed miracles by which he led astray those who had accepted or permitted to be placed upon them the stamp (mark) of the beast and those who paid homage and gave divine honors to his statue. Both of them were hurled alive into the fiery lake that burns and blazes with brimstone.
21 And the rest were killed with the sword that issues from the mouth of Him Who is mounted on the horse, and all the birds fed ravenously and glutted themselves with their flesh.

A week of heavy flooding leaves 27 people dead in India and Pakistan
Some are calling the “deal”, which is in reality just a framework for further discussions, that Greece achieved over the weekend a “Pyrrhic defeat.” That is certainly one way of looking at things, however an even more accurate assessment of events in the past 48 hours is that this is the moment the “genie was out of the bottle” and the Euro was finally seen as reversible, what ultimately happens to Greece and its soon to be 200%+ debt/GDP notwithstanding.
Here is Sky News’ Ed Conway with one of the more accurate summaries of this weekend’s epic fiasco:
For the first time, the leaders of the 19-member euro area officially discussed plans for the departure of one of their members.
It is difficult to overstate the significance of this. For its entire life, the euro was conceived as a currency from which there could be no exit.
Now, one should insert a major note of caution at this stage.
“The Genie Is Out Of The Bottle” – The Moment The Euro Became Reversible
the genie is now out of the bottle. Brussels is officially discussing how to engineer Greece’s departure. The euro is not irreversible. Clearly, they will not do “whatever it takes” to keep it together.
The big question now?—?beyond whether there actually is a Grexit?—?is how markets react. After all, since the euro is now no longer an irreversible currency but a collection of nations tied into a currency from which they could, indeed, leave?—?in other words, a fixed exchange rate system?—?do markets begin making bets about that happening? Do they ask questions about Spain, or Italy, too?
Even on top of the specific Greek issues (and the scale of compromises they may be forced to seek) this is a big moment for Europe and its leaders. They have taken a step into the unknown.
If you have got family and friends that you would like to visit before things start getting really crazy, you should do so within the next couple of months, because these are the last days of “normal life” in America. The website where I have posted this article is called “End of the American Dream“, but perhaps I should have entitled it “The End of America” because that is essentially what we are heading for. The debt-fueled prosperity that so many of us take for granted is about to come to a screeching halt, and we are about to enter the hardest times that any of us have ever known. And I am not just talking about economics either. Based on all of the intel and information that I have gathered, we are about to enter a “perfect storm” that is going to shake this country in just about every possible way that it can be shaken. So I hope that you will truly savor this summer – days like this will not come around again any time soon.
Have you ever known someone that lived a seemingly charmed life even though that individual made foolish decision after foolish decision?
In the end, reality almost always catches up with people like that.
And in so many ways, we have been living a charmed life as a nation even though we have been making incredibly foolish decisions for decades. We have cursed ourselves over and over again, and just about every form of evil that you can possibly imagine is exploding all around us. As a nation, we now stand for just about everything that is foul, disgusting and wicked, and the rest of the world is absolutely horrified by what has happened to us.
Once upon a time, we were one of the most loved nations on the entire planet.
Now we are one of the most hated.
The things that we have been doing to ourselves and to other countries are about to catch up with us in a major way. We thought that we were getting away with everything that we were doing, but that was never the case. When you do evil, there is always a price to pay.
Over the past few weeks, some very strange things have begun to happen. And in the months ahead, we are going to see some more unusual events. But to be honest, this is just the tip of the iceberg. For now, you are just going to have to trust me on this one.
If my tone sounds ominous, that is good, because that is precisely the mood that I am trying to convey. Right now, there are major things going on behind the scenes, and all of our comfortable little lives are about to get shaken up big time.
I have often written about the global elite and about how they like to go about doing things. Throughout history, they have always liked to create order out of chaos. In other words, they will often purposely create a crisis in order to push through things that they would not be able to accomplish during “normal” times.
The Last Days Of ‘Normal Life’ In America
I believe that we are about to enter one of those periods of time. The problems that we are about to experience are going to be used to justify radical “solutions” that will further the overall agenda of the elite. But because we will be in the middle of an “emergency”, a lot of people will choose to go along with those solutions.
Sadly, most people don’t understand how the world works because they are so consumed with other things. We live in a society that is absolutely addicted to entertainment. Just recently, I wrote about how the average American spends more than 10 hours a day plugged in to some form of media. If we are not watching television, we are listening to the radio, going to movies, playing video games, messing with our smartphones or spending endless hours on the Internet. And more than 90 percent of the “programming” that we are fed through these devices is produced by just 6 absolutely gigantic media corporations.
And who controls those gigantic media corporations?
The elite do.
And have you noticed how “the mainstream media” loves to divide us?
Today, Americans are more divided than ever it seems. Our news broadcasts endlessly fixate on “black vs. white”, “male vs. female”, “liberal vs. conservative”, “rich vs. poor”, etc, etc.
Americans are extremely angry and frustrated at this point, but most of our anger and frustration is directed at one another.
How can we ever hope to come up with any solutions for our nation if we spend so much time hating our fellow citizens?
But this is just how the elite like it.
They love to play divide and conquer. If we were united, we would be far more difficult to manipulate.
And even if we did find a way to come together, what values and principles would we use to rebuild this nation?
The truth is that most Americans deeply reject the values and principles that the founders of this country once held so dear.
am I optimistic about the future of the United States?
No, I am not.
Perhaps you are reading this and you have come to the conclusion that I am being irrationally negative. If so, you are probably spending way too much time plugged in to the “propaganda matrix” that I described above. The establishment wants you to believe that everything is going to be just fine and that the best days for this world are ahead.
If you think that I am wrong, I challenge you to bookmark this page. Then, after some time has passed, come back and revisit what I had to say today.
I believe that you will be quite shocked by how your perspective has changed.
The last half of this year (2015) is going to represent a major turning point, and we are moving into hard times unlike anything that America has ever seen before.
Unfortunately, most of the “sheeple” are going to be completely blindsided by what is coming. They just continue to follow their utterly clueless leaders down a path toward oblivion.
But the good news is that once the “shaking” starts, many of these “sheeple” will begin to wake up.
When that happens, who will those “sheeple” turn to for answers?
Moments ago, in what was a generally expected development, taking advantage of Grimbo and the IMF’s tacit grace period following the June 30 default to Christine Lagarde, and perhaps in an indication of just how serious Greece truly is to honor its creditor committments (not really: it just shows that without additional creditor funds, Greece can never repay its creditors), Reuters reported that Greece will not meet a 450 million euro ($496.7 million) loan repayment to the International Monetary Fund that falls due on Monday given its severe cash crunch, citing two sources close to the issue.
Reuters adds that the missed payment will follow a 1.6 billion euro payment to the IMF which Greece also missed paying last month, making it the first advanced economy to ever be “in arrears” with the fund – the IMF’s official euphemism for default.
Greece Fails To Make Another IMF Loan Payment But It Is Tonight’s Samurai Bond That Everyone Is Watching
However, it was not today’s IMF (non) repayment that traders, if not Eurocrats and economists, are concerned about but tonight’s maturity of a JPY 20 billion (about $160 million) Samurai note sold in 1995 and which matures on July 14. The reason why this paltry, in the grand scheme of things, payment is critical is that while continuing to repay the IMF is not an event of default if only purely technically, and for the rating agencies, a non-payment on the Samurai bond would start a cross-default cascade.
As Bloomberg reported in June: “If the Samurai bond isn’t paid, it could cause a cross default on other public bonds,” said Ryosuke Kaneko, a credit analyst in Tokyo at Mizuho Securities Co., a unit of Japan’s third-biggest bank. If Greece can’t repay the IMF at the end of the month, then “market participants may start focusing on the Samurai bond as a trigger,” he said.
It is unclear whether the cross-default cascade would also impact the ECB’s bond holding and for the first time impair the European central bank’s Greek SMP holdings.
In the meantime, if the current trading price of the Samurai bonds due in 24 hours (at par) is any indication, the market is clearly not assuming a repayment is the base case…
what are technically Greek properties, in the process Athens handing over about 25% of Greek GDP (and sovereignty) over the Brussels.
What are these assets? For the answer we go to the horse’s mouth, Jeroen Dijsselbloem, who laid out the holdings of the proposed Greek privatization that would be sold off as follows: “it still is going to be an independent fund, valued at €50 billion which can be airplanes, airports, infrastructure and most certainly banks.”
What Assets Did Greece Just Hand Over To Europe: “Airports, Airplanes, Infrastructure And Most Certainly Banks”
Bloomberg quotes the Eurogroup finmin president:
They will be brought in with the target to privatize those in the coming years, but we will take our time for that.
We then hope for proceeds of EU50 billion, but that will be clear later.
The banks first have to be refinanced from this aid program, but after that I take it that they’re worth money and then we can sell them.
The proceedings are aimed at lowering Greece’s national debt.
In other words, Greece will be liquidated piecemeal to repay creditors. In even other words, the proceeds from the Third Greek Bailout will not only not reach the Greek people, but Greece will have to sell itself in pieces to top off the creditors’ funding needs.
Dijsselbloem concludes: “That is good for Greece, but also good for us. We are in the end the ones from whom the money is borrowed.”
It was not exactly clear why this would be good for Greece.
So for all those curious, here are some of the “assets” that already have, or soon will hit Ebay.

Recently, we’ve witnessed the bank holiday in Greece, the limitation as to how much the Greek people can withdraw from their accounts each day.
Not surprisingly, the mainstream press have focused on images such as the one above – a queue at an ATM – and discussed the difficulty of the Greek people in trying to run their lives on the €50-€60 that they’re allowed to withdraw each day.
The press then comment poignantly that “Something needs to be done.” The implication is that “someone”, either the banks or the government, need to find a way to deliver these people more money, so that they can continue to function economically.
Of course, the problem, and the very reason for the bank holiday in the first place, is that the money simply doesn’t exist.
Cashtration: As Goes Greece, So Goes The World
For many years, governments have been attempting to expand the economy by encouraging debt. Governments (most notably the EU and US) have borrowed far more than they ever have in history, to the point that they’re now facing insolvency.
Further, the average citizen has been programmed to think that he can get ahead through increased debt. As a result, personal debt has risen to an unprecedented level.
But in order for someone to borrow, someone must offer to lend, and, of course, the banks have been the lenders. Banks typically make their profits by taking in deposits, then loaning out that money to others, making their profits on the interest.
This is a system that began in Europe hundreds of years ago and, although it has repeatedly resulted in disaster, continues to be the standard by which banks operate.
Theoretically, it’s a workable idea.
The banks maintain, say, 10% of the deposits in order to service daily transactions by depositors, and they loan out the rest. As long as depositors do not lose faith in the system and arrive in droves to take out their deposits, the system continues to work.
But today, when a bank provides a loan, it doesn’t hand over stacks of paper bills to the borrower. It simply processes a credit to his account. This allows the bank to offer far more loans and far larger loans.
If a bank holds, say, $10 million in deposits, it could conceivably offer $100 million in loans. That money, of course, does not exist, except as an electronic credit, but it allows the bankers to increase their profits tenfold.
Quite a temptation.
And it’s a temptation that has, at this point, become the norm in much of the world. What we’re witnessing is the greatest credit bubble/debt bubble that mankind has ever seen. What we’re seeing in Greece is not merely a country of socialistically inclined people behaving very foolishly. We’re seeing a small pin pricking a very large balloon.

As Goes Greece, So Goes the World
The tedious drama that we’ve been observing in Greece in recent years is far from over. Greek debt is tied to EU debt. EU debt is tied to world debt. The coming debacle may unfold in this manner:
Greeks try to adjust to subsistence living, on what little the banks allow them daily. They make no payments on their own debt, as even mere subsistence is difficult. Companies do the same, as they’re having a hard time just paying wages and other overheads and can’t afford to pay interest on their loans.
Greek banks continue to provide depositors with an “allowance”, whilst their income source (interest on loans) dries up. Banks become insolvent and cease paying “allowances” altogether. (And remember, this is the depositors’ own money that will be denied them.) But, as stated above, Greece is not alone. Other EU countries that are on a similar precipice will be similarly affected. Each country, each “domino”, will fall more quickly than the one before it, as its people, having observed the pattern in other countries, lose faith in the system.
Meanwhile, governments will side with the banks, giving them free rein to do whatever they wish to save themselves, at the expense of depositors. Cashtration has begun in Greece but will spread to every country where banks have overstepped the mark and gone on a loan-provision spree in recent decades.
Further, a country such as Canada, which has not been so cavalier as the EU and US, is so inextricably linked with the US through banking and commerce, it will find itself equally impacted, even though they themselves tried to take a more responsible approach to loans.
In the midst of this, the populations of all affected countries will cry out for their governments to “Do something!”
Governments will respond by trying to cover their own responsibility in this debacle, as they have, for decades, been, not only the enablers of the bank debt spree, but have additionally run the governments themselves into debt beyond what can be repaid.
There will be no “solution”, as such. There will be an economic collapse and a Greater Depression.
At this point the reader may say to himself, “So, that’s it; we’re all toast. If this analysis is correct, there’s no hope for anybody.”
Not so. For anyone who has ever been a guest at a really great party, where the food and wine were seemingly endless and the mood infectiously jubilant, the outside world seemed not to exist. At a great party, the world outside appears unimportant.
Still, there are those who were either not invited, or chose not to go. They continued their lives soberly. In the aftermath of the party, they watch as the hung-over revellers leave. Although they may look upon the partygoers with disdain, they get on with their lives, relatively unaffected.
It’s the same with an “economic party”. Not everyone attends. Which is to say that there are presently countries where it is, and has always been, difficult to get a loan, either to buy a car or house, or to start a business.
Presently, these countries are looked upon as “backward”, as they are not charging ahead, as the more “prosperous” countries are. However, in the aftermath of The Great Economic Party, these countries will continue, relatively unaffected.
It’s left to the reader to determine to what degree his own country is involved in the party and to what degree his country will be impacted as the balloon pops. His assessment will suggest to what degree he will personally be “cashtrated”: forced by emergency conditions to be placed on an “allowance” by his bank and, eventually, to have that allowance end altogether as funds run out.
Sorry to say, it’s likely that the great majority who live in such jurisdictions will, as suggested above, be “toast”.
But there will be some who observe Greece and realize that the condition will spread and that there will be no solution by governments. They will take advantage of the brief time available and internationalise themselves as much as they are able.
It’s not the end, except for those who choose to remain at the party too long.
And after these things I saw another messenger coming down out of the heaven, having great authority, and the earth was lightened from his glory, 2 and he did cry in might — a great voice, saying, `Fall, fall did Babylon the great, and she became a habitation of demons, and a hold of every unclean spirit, and a hold of every unclean and hateful bird, 3 because of the wine of the wrath of her whoredom have all the nations drunk, and the kings of the earth with her did commit whoredom, and merchants of the earth from the power of her revel were made rich.
4 And I heard another voice out of the heaven, saying, `Come forth out of her, My people, that ye may not partake with her sins, and that ye may not receive of her plagues, 5 because her sins did follow — unto the heaven, and God did remember her unrighteousness.

the question is: was Schauble wrong, especially when considering the alternative that Greece is now presented with: handing over its sovereignty to Berlin on a silver platter, and an outcome which “leaves Greece in a permanent debt trap, under neo-colonial control, and so economically fragile that it is almost guaranteed to crash into a fresh crisis in the next global downturn or European recession.”
Telegraph’s Ambrose Evans-Pritchard believes Schauble’s “solution” was the right one for Greece:
Alas, Tsipras ignored this option and instead of doing the honorable thing and resigning following his “mental waterboarding” by Europe, in the process not only salvaging the disastrous Syriza negotiating tactics of the past 6 months and cementing himself as a martyr in the public’s eye thus assuring himself a landslide victory in the next elections but also putting the ball once again back in Merkel’s court, he conceded to everything, in the process starting the clock on the next Greek default and bailout, with Grexit – either temporary or permanent – merely delayed.
In this regard, AEP’s conclusion is spot on:
For the eurozone this “deal” is the worst of all worlds. They have solved nothing. Germany and its allies have for the first time attempted to eject a country from the euro, and by doing so have violated the sanctity of monetary union.
Rather than go forward in times of deep crisis to fiscal and political union to hold the euro together – as the architects of EMU always anticipated – they have instead gone backwards.
They have at a single stroke converted the eurozone into a hard-peg currency bloc, a renewed Exchange Rate Mechanism that is inherently unstable, at the whim and mercy of populist politicians playing to the gallery at home. The markets are already starting to call it ERM3.
Schauble will get the last laugh yet.
The argument was that letting Greece burn would make it easier to build a stronger Europe with a more credible firewall.

America’s day of reckoning just 60 days away?
Two months from now the biblical Shemitah year will have played out and only then will we know whether it has left any significant event in its wake.
In the past, this seven-year cycle has brought collapsing stock markets, tumbling currencies and the shaking of nations and empires.
This period of early autumn was the most crucial time on the biblical calendar for the ancient Israelites, with the end of the seven-year cycle described in Deuteronomy as the Shemitah or Sabbath year. All farmland was to be left in a state of rest and the people were to focus on God and His will for their nation and their lives.
This year on Sept. 13, the Shemitah reaches its peak on the last day on the Hebrew calendar, Elul 29, known as the “day of nullification.” All debt and credit were to be wiped away on this day as described by author Jonathan Cahn in his New York-Times bestseller, “The Mystery of the Shemitah,” published in September 2014.
But the Shemitah can be a game-changer not only for economies and stock markets but also in geopolitics.
Are America’s days as world leader numbered?
There is no arguing the fact that the United States of America has been the most powerful “empire” on earth since the end of World War II. Its corporations have been the engine that drives the global economy and its politicians have set the tone for the world order. It’s no coincidence the United Nations is based in New York City, the seat of global financial power.
But even as the nation’s economy flounders and it has gone from the world’s largest creditor to the world’s largest debtor, American culture has also drifted farther and farther from God. Some believe it has drifted beyond the point of return, into full-blown rebellion, with the June 26 landmark Supreme Court decision on marriage being only the latest symptom of a nation that has come unhinged from its foundational belief system. Obergefell v. Hodges was the biggest shock to Judeo-Christian moral sensibilities since Roe v. Wade in 1973. Both decisions came down in Shemitah years.
In the oft-quoted words of American political philosopher F.P. Dunne, “the Supreme Court follows the election returns.” If that’s true, such monumental shifts in the court’s rulings should not be viewed in a bubble. The five justices who decided to radically alter the legal definition of marriage could not have ruled that way unless they felt the majority of Americans were ready to accept their decision, if not totally agree with it. Thus far it does not appear that they miscalculated. The overwhelming majority of county clerks are issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples and those who have refused are being replaced by more obedient bureaucrats.
The 20th century’s greatest Christian thinkers, men like Alexander Solzhenitsyn and Francis Schaeffer, believed that a civilization could not continue indefinitely apart from the will of God. Soviet communism fell, Nazi Germany fell, the British Empire disintegrated. And many scholars see the whole of Western civilization as in decline now that it has rejected the very Christianity that made it great. It has succumbed to the pressures that have warred against it from the beginning.
Shemitah shakes empires
One of the chapters in Cahn’s book “The Rise and Fall of Nations” shows how the ancient Shemitah mystery is linked to massive changes of world history – world wars, the rise and fall of nations and empires.
Global problems in our day seem to be spinning out of control. Lawlessness is on the rise. The current order in the Middle East, in place since the end of World War I, has been turned on its head.
“What we are watching now is a massive destabilization throughout the world – from ISIS, to the war in Syria, to the collapse of Greece, the collapse of the Chinese stock market, the destabilizing of the European Union, the issue of nuclear weapons and Iran, the moral and spiritual transformation of America, the deterioration of relations between America and Israel, and more,” Cahn told WND.
In the financial realm, the markets have been expanding since 2009. Cahn believes the Shemitah, if it follows its pattern of the past two seven-year cycles, will bring a shaking in the financial realm first.
“And just now as we approach the climactic last part of the Shemitah, we see the sudden destabilization of the global financial realm,” said Cahn, who authored “The Harbinger,” which became a New York-Times bestseller in 2009.
“Added to this, the Greek crisis specifically deals with issues of debt and debt relief – the central issue of the Shemitah,” he added. “Whether or not the crisis finds a resolution, the very fact that such sudden destabilization of the global financial realm has taken place, and having to do with the issue of debt and credit and the issue of relief, just as the Shemitah nears its climactic period, warrants our attention. And as the Shemitah deals with the wiping out of financial accounts, we now witness China’s financial (stock market) losing 30 percent of its value in less than a month, is more than striking.”
States falling into line even before court’s edict
But it will not stop with the financial realm.
“The Shemitah also can mean ‘the fall.’ And we are watching the greatest, most rapid moral and spiritual fall in American history,” Cahn said. “In the year of the Shemitah, the number of states that struck down the biblical definition of marriage went from a small minority, in the teens, to the majority, and then at the end of June, came one of the most momentous decisions in American judicial history – and history itself – the striking down of the biblical and historic definition of marriage.
“This is a pivotal event with colossal ramifications, and one that draws America one step closer to judgment.”
When Obergefell v. Hodges was being argued before the Supreme Court in March, Cahn said he saw a woman holding a sign that read “Don’t Cross this Line.” He stopped and prayed with her.
Holy matrimony was the first covenant between God and man in the Garden of Eden, when God gave Eve to Adam and the two, male and female, were to become “one flesh” with God as their witness. In the New Testament, marriage is further revealed as a type, a foreshadow, of the relationship between God and his Church, which is called the “Bride of Christ.”
Now man has taken what is holy before God, the marriage covenant, and redefined it in a way that appears right to man in his humanistic way of thinking devoid of the Holy Spirit’s guidance. A line has been crossed, Cahn said, and so the only prayer left to pray is one for repentance and mercy.
America is heading for judgment. Whether that judgment entails a stock market collapse, a collapse of the dollar, or something further down the road that is even worse, Cahn is also praying that the individual Christians that make up the body of Christ in America will get right with God and repent of their sins.
For judgment always starts “in the house of the Lord.”
Israeli defense minister says Antichrist Iran nuclear deal will force Israel to defend itself, by itself
Negotiators appeared on the verge of signing a final deal Monday that would lift longstanding sanctions on Antichrist Iran in return for limitations and closer inspections of its nuclear program. Israel has been among the fiercest critics of the talks, saying the world was making undue concessions without getting enough in return from an Antichrist Islamic Republic that has made no secret of its belligerent intentions.
Moshe Yaalon says Israel’s assumption is that a “bad nuclear deal” was imminent.
