Latter Rain And Salvation
Grant Williams presents a chart whose importance is enormous… simply put, this one chart shows exactly why we are where we are…
Folks, rates WILL have to go up again. They cannot stay at zero forever. We all know that. When they DO, because of all the additional debt that has been ladled atop the existing pile, the whole thing will come tumbling down.
All of it.
Then the sixth [angel] emptied his bowl on the mighty river Euphrates, and its water was dried up to make ready a road for [the coming of] the kings of the east (from the rising sun).
13 And I saw three loathsome spirits like frogs, [leaping] from the mouth of the dragon and from the mouth of the beast and from the mouth of the false prophet.
14 For really they are the spirits of demons that perform signs (wonders, miracles). And they go forth to the rulers and leaders all over the world, to gather them together for war on the great day of God the Almighty.
15 Behold, I am going to come like a thief! Blessed (happy, [a]to be envied) is he who stays awake (alert) and who guards his clothes, so that he may not be naked and [have the shame of being] seen exposed!
16 And they gathered them together at the place which in Hebrew is called Armageddon.
America’s political economy has changed incrementally enough that many people have not noticed what is really happening
Edersheim is quick to point out that the mysterious prophecy of the watchtower, though known by Jewish teachers, was not understood by them:
FALLS CHURCH, VA.: In 2001, Awlaki and the San Diego hijackers turned up together again — this time at the Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center, a Pentagon-area mosque built with funds from the Saudi Embassy. Awlaki was recruited 3,000 miles away to head the mosque. As its imam, Awlaki helped the hijackers, who showed up at his doorstep as if on cue. He tasked a handler to help them acquire apartments and IDs before they attacked the Pentagon.
Awlaki worked closely with the Saudi Embassy. He lectured at a Saudi Islamic think tank in Merrifield, Va., chaired by Bandar. Saudi travel itinerary documents I’ve obtained show he also served as the official imam on Saudi Embassy-sponsored trips to Mecca and tours of Saudi holy sites.
Most suspiciously, though, Awlaki fled the United States on a Saudi jet about a year after 9/11.
Perhaps the truth is simply too painful to accept, so we will reject it until we have no other alternative.
In other words, a recession in 2014 just might well be The Big One.
Oh boy . . .
First, let me say this clearly, if you have a “bug-out place”, preferably outside of the United States, now is the time to go. Several people in the know have already left. On December 12, 2012, while appearing on The Common Sense Show, Jim Marrs revealed on my show that 400-500 bankers had left the country in anticipation of what was coming.
We are sure it will be very exciting but in the interests of ‘balance’ we offer a few alternative views of the “success” of the venerable monopoly including its cost: since 1913, the dollar has lost nearly 90% of its purchasing power.
#2 Because of the lack of jobs, poverty is spreading like wildfire in the United States. According to the most recent numbers from the U.S. Census Bureau, an all-time record 49.2 percent of all Americans are receiving benefits from at least one government program each month.
#75 The federal government is borrowing (stealing) roughly 100 million dollars from our children and our grandchildren every single hour of every single day.
The US’s biggest foreign lender China has boosted its Treasury bond holdings to near record levels of $1.3 trillion in October. This after the Fed calmed financial markets by saying in September it would continue its monthly $85 billion bond purchases.
The total value of US government bonds grew by $10.7 billion, or by 0.8 percent Treasury data shows. This compares to the July 2011 figure when it reached a record $1.314 trillion.
The pace of Chinese bond buying has not stopped, and that increase in buying is expected to be more than the record 30 percent rise seen in 2010.
Bild newspaper in Germany reported over the weekend that Russia had “quietly” moved 10 Iskander-M (SS-26 Stone) missile systems into its Baltic exclave of Kaliningrad and along its border with the Baltic States and NATO members Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
With its reported effective range of 400 kilometers (250 miles), the Iskander does not fall into the category of intermediate-range nuclear missiles banned by the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty between Russia and the United States.
The missiles deployed in Kaliningrad could hit NATO targets located in Poland, Lithuania and even in Germany, however.
China’s military conducted the second flight test of its newest long-range missile that is capable of hitting targets in the United States with a nuclear warhead, according to defense officials.
About 50,000 Syrian Christians want to apply for Russian citizenship. In a letter to the Russian Foreign Ministry, they said that they were not planning to flee Syria, but if threatened with physical elimination, they would pin their hopes on Russia as the guarantor of their survival. Analysts think that despite the difficulties their request may involve, it won’t go unheeded.
The exact composition of the international mandate is up for discussion, the sources said, but Kerry’s plan recommended a coalition that includes the Vatican, together with a group of Muslim countries such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia.
The move was widely seen in Jerusalem as a realization in Beijing that as China emerges as the world’s leading economic power, it needs to take a more prominent role on the world’s diplomatic stage and not content itself with staying on the sidelines and letting others – such as the US and Russia – lead the way in everything except what touches on China’s immediate neighborhood.
