WNW 182-Netanyahu & Coming War, Fed Confusion, Drought in West

4By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com  3/20/15 

The big story this week is the election win of Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel, and the implications for the Middle East.  I predicted that the meddling Obama supporters were doing in Israel would backfire, and it did–big time.  Netanyahu won, so now what?  A Palestinian peace deal has moved to a back burner.  Some in the press have reported Netanyahu has cancelled the so-called two state solution to form a Palestinian state.  That is not really accurate.  Netanyahu said that “under prevailing conditions” the two state peace deal in not going to get done.  What are the “prevailing conditions”?  The peace negotiation broke off nearly a year ago.  There is also increased violence, and major disagreements between Israel, Hamas and the Palestinian Authority (PA) continue to get worse, not better.  Hamas and the PA are now aligned politically.  The bottom line is look for more unrest and even more violence both inside and outside the borders of Israel.  There is also talk of the Obama Administration going to the U.N. to try to push the two state deal.

Meanwhile, the Obama Administration is pushing to get a deal done with Iran to curtail its nuclear program that it has repeatedly said is for the peaceful production of energy.  Israel isn’t buying it and says the Obama deal will allow Iran to get nuclear weapons.  The Obama Administration has not fully and publicly disclosed the deal.  Some think that, too, will be something the Obama Administration will take directly to the U.N. and bypass Congress.  It is not just Israel that is concerned, many in the U.S. and in the Arab world are also worried about a nuclear arms race heating up in the Middle East.  I read this week that Secretary of State John Kerry was quoted as saying, “The Iranians have lived up to their part of the interim agreement . . . made more than a year ago.”  My question is how does he know that?  Are there inspectors in Iran?  Do they have access to every nuclear site both known and unknown?  Last month, Kerry admitted to Congress that there were secret Iranian nuke sites.  This is looking like the Obama Administration is going to cut a deal with Iran no matter what.  Look for the deadline at the end of this month to be pushed back—again.

Closer to home, have you heard about the so called “Realistic Military Training” that will be taking place from July 15th to September 15th?    It is happening from California to Texas and all the states in between.  The operation is called Jade Helm, and it is sort of a war game that includes real citizens.  I think it is a very suspicious time period given the fact that several of my guests have come on and said they thought there is going to be financial upheaval this fall.  Many have said it looks specifically like it will happen in the September-October time period.

Meanwhile, every major country has signed on to be a part of the Asia Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) led by China.  I am talking the UK, most countries in Europe and the BRICS nations are all on board.  This is paving the way for China to have a competing reserve currency to the U.S. dollar.  This is a direct challenge to the U.S. and the World Bank.  I think countries are preparing for the de-dollarization of the world.  If the world is going to need less dollars, then they are going to be coming home, and that could produce some very high inflation along with much financial instability.

That brings us to the Federal Reserve announcement that it will be dropping the word “patient” in its forward guidance when it comes to interest rates.  This is the word my friend Gregory Mannarino of TradersChoice.net focused on last week and said if the Fed dropped that word, then the markets would sell off.  Maybe Fed Head Janet Yellen listens to this show because she also said, “Just because we removed the word patient from the statement doesn’t mean we are going to be impatient.”  Does the Fed know how weak and confused it looks?  Ms. Yellen wants it both ways and wants to appear tough when she know if she raises rates, the economy, which we all know is a fraud, will crash.  Mannarino is forecasting another round of money printing just like Laurence Kotlikoff, John Williams and many other guests who have been on USAWatchdog.  Mannarino is also forecasting “negative real interest rates” as the economy continues to spiral downward.  He, too, is thinking that this fall is the end of the road.  I am calling what is coming “reality colliding with fantasy.”  It is going to be life changing, especially for the unprepared.

Finally, drought in the West.  Talk about an underreported story, a severe drought picture in USA Today says it all.  California is the hardest hit.  It is reported that there is only a year’s worth of water left in many of the reservoirs.  Water levels are reaching historic lows and wells are running dry.

    Hi Greg, What do you make of this? The report reads like fake news “US Commander Under Arrest For Refusing To Fire Nukes”
    and the website seems bogus. I’ve read some website owners and blogs saying there are bogus websites run by the NSA. What are they trying to do?

      Mike,
      The hardest thing I do is try to spot the real reporting from spin and propaganda. I think this story is a fraud. I followed one of the links, and it linked to a credible source. Only problem is it totally debunks the main story about the top commander refusing to fire nukes on command of the President. A link of the used as a source in the main story says, >”Cole’s air wing has no role in operating nuclear weapons but is responsible for the Navy squadrons whose E-6B Mercury aircraft provide communications links between the president and the nuclear forces.” One more time, “Cole’s air wing has no role in operating nuclear weapons . . .”
      Commander Cole had no access to nukes. Peace

        Hi Greg
        The trouble with AIIB the elites in USA may thank for themselves.

        I tell you why. 1st every elite in every western country are divided into national and international part trough their interest. Now the national and the international elites of USA are fighting. And that published letter sent a clear and loud massage “divided we stand”.
        Which was an excuse for US allies (correctly vassals) jumping the anti-US$ bandwagon (you bet this move was prepared for at least 3-6 months beforehand).
        And we should not forget the other reasons to abandoning the USA and US$.

        In short the upper echelons of USA committed a political and economical suicide with this last move.
        My 2 cents
        Oracle 911

        PS: Now the national elites of USA and Israel are allies. Because the later is afraid of losing control and money (they are de facto bankrupt and living from “alms”).

      • Mike

        Greg speaking of real reporting and propaganda and spin…The Kyiv Post took an article from a writer and literally changed it and twisted the meaning turning it into a propaganda piece. The reporter/author took great offense to it and openly called out the Kyiv Post on their manipulation of his piece. It’s an interesting exchange in the comments section. Maybe it is something you may highlight as to how propaganda gets spread sometimes.

      The World is Pivoting East … they see little Israel standing up to US policy … and figure “they too” can ignore Washington … so Europe’s biggest economies … Britain, Germany, France, Italy along with South Korea and Japan are moving to join the Chinese-led Asian Investment Bank (that the United States views as a rival to the World Bank and other institutions the US set up at the height of American power after World War II) … and are now threatening the US dollar’s reserve currency status.

      Just as the Roman Empire fell because of corruption … the now “politically corrupted” US is being viewed by the world in the full light of day … with some of the closest allies of the US following Israel’s lead “delivering stinging rebukes to Washington” … will Washington now sanction the entire world by creating a thermonuclear world war?

      Actually the above post implying “an order for a nuclear first strike was already given by the US” … but stopped just in time by the action of one brave woman … even if just a made up lie … could be effective in putting “some concern in the minds of world leaders” that they better toe the line!

    Greg… I have been reading bits and pieces about a Chinese gold fix replacing the London fix today, Friday the 20th. Maybe I have missed someone talking about it here. If not, can you please schedule a guest that can explain what it really means for the price of gold? I think that this story is huge.

        Greg: remember I sent this INFO to you from one of my sources a few days ago-
        Note the mention of 3/20/15.

        Gold is now at a low not seen in several years (if it goes
        lower than cost price [as in extraction/refinement costs] mines will shut
        down causing problems with supply of physical gold – therefore very few
        people will be able to hedge against the collapse unless they get moving
        now). However, on 20th March gold will leave ‘London Gold Fixing’ and will
        be change to ‘LBMA Gold Price’ a historic event because LGF has been
        constant since 1919. This may see an upswing in the price – maybe the low
        price is because the Elite are selling off their paper gold, I am not
        sure.

        The interesting part is FAR more gold gets delivered on the shanghai gold exchage than the Comex where its mostly paper trades.

        Here is a chart showing the relative physical gold deliveries between Comex and the Shanghai Gold Exchange:

    Out here on the West Coast the Winter has been warm and dry. Usually we have a fire every night. We’ve had a grand total of two fires over the last two months. Very comfortable, warm, and dry weather. And yes, some of our neighbor’s wells have gone dry.

    Someone posted this Catherine Austin Fitts talk a week or so ago that I found very illuminating and an absolute MUST WATCH. She definitely has the big picture. Also check out the other speakers from the Secret Space Program Conference which took place last June.

      Good post Thad.
      She paints a diabolical and very complex picture. She definitely has the art of communicating it down pat too.
      Tough subject which she handles with ease. It makes you wonder what the hell was going through her head when she was exposed to all of this opaque and hidden budget, monetary madness of which all agencies were known to be aware of it and no one was held accountable. The Govt. makes it own rules to suit itself and its crony capitalist ways. It cannot and never will be held accountable…..not even in America where the Judicial system is corrupted too.

        Hey Allen,
        Does Jim Willie have the same take as Jim Sinclair on the disturbing rule changes concerning Money Markets? An article in Perpetual Assets appeared which summarizes the changes by Sinclair and it looks like “TPTB” can now block you from exiting the market. Boy if this doesn’t scream, “Get Out of the System” I don’t know what does?

    ……and….. Bill Holter writes;

    Yesterday the Fed made their announcement and deleted the famous word “patient”. I have never seen such a nonsensical frenzy over anything, never mind a single word. The reaction was everything …except the dollar was bid. Sadly, reality has also been deleted as the Fed cannot “go there”, if they did and when they do (are forced to), life as we knew it will be history. Reality is the global economy has stalled. Most of Europe is in recession, China’s growth has stalled and the U.S., even with fudged numbers will not be able to show any growth.

    As recent examples, China’s real estate crashing at the fastest pace ever, Canada’s wholesale trade crashing, the Fed growth model show only .03% growth, housing starts dropped 17% and car sales have turned horrible. The sovereigns Ukraine and Greece are clearly bankrupt and currencies have already been more volatile than any time in history. Add to the previous an oil market that has collapsed and clearly a margin call has been issued.

    My topic today of a global margin call is a serious one ….

    Greg,
    Many colorful issues this week as usual and handled with restrained gusto. One can hardly get excited about WWIII/Nuclear Arms race…..etc…but you remain enthusiastic in your delivery.

    I want to focus on one topic which I follow closely, if you will permit.
    That is the Rise of BRICS.
    Central to that are Russia and China.
    Some time ago I posted a comment on this site on Russia’s mission/task in the context of the Big picture.
    We are aware that Russia has played a vital role in Usurping the US hegemony. This is no accident. Russia together with China have formed an unbreakable alliance with the Muslim World. They are defiant in their quest and also as a tool of the International Bankers, who are now themselves preparing to implode the Monetary system. They have to date committed criminal acts of financial war and it is being increasingly noticed. Think OIL …collapsing markets (which they have perfected time and again) they obtain control over the assets and wealth of nations.
    What does UK, France, Italy and Germany all desirous of taking part in the AIIB mean ? On face value it implies they are moving to the new model….one that is outside the reaches and constraints of the US.
    On a higher level, Russia is to be used as the pawn of the Elite to resurrect Communism. That is pushing forward with agenda’s of…..People’s rights and lawlessness…..an action designed to ultimately divest Russia of her industry and her resources and to finally bankrupt her with debt.
    It is said that Russia has made a pact with the Royal Houses of Europe….(UK, France, Italy, Germany)….to decouple Europe from the American Alliance. Can we see some semblance of this occurring in the guise of the AIIB membership ?
    I was literally lost for words when I read the FT article and how that clearly resembled what I had learnt of the Russian agenda.

    Hello Greg,
    could you comment on the headline about Saudi Arabia reaching out to Russia ,possibly because of Obama’s talk with Iran . I understand that they don’t want Iran to have nukes. That there could be an alliance with Russia and the Saudis.

    GREG;
    The water crisis in California is reaching epic proportions.
    And it’s going to cost everyone, big time.
    After a sustained drought, NASA has reported that the state has less than one year of water reserves remaining, with no back up plan if things go wrong.
    Now, there is so much demand for water in Southern Californian cities, that many farmers are opting to sell their water rights to urban dwellers – not just at a premium, but at an unbelievable and unprecedented rate.
    CBS News profiled some rice farmers with historic rights to the Yuba River who are being offered so much for water, they have decided to forego planting their crops altogether and sell the new “cash crop” – liquid gold.

    http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/california-farmers-skip-planting-sell-water-to-desperate-cities-were-afraid-theyll-just-take-it_03192015?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+SHTFplan+%28SHTF+Plan+-+When+It+Hits+The+Fan%2C+Don%27t+Say+We+Didn%27t+Warn+You%29
    The going rate has jumped from the $50 per foot acre, which many farmers have been willing to pay, to an astounding $700 per foot acre.
    Many fields will stay dry because farmers will be doing what was once considered unthinkable: selling their water to Southern California. He and his fellow growers have agreed to sell 20 percent of their allotment to Los Angeles’s Metropolitan Water District as it desperately searches to add to its dwindling supply. This new price means growers will earn a lot more money on the fields they don’t plant, making water itself the real cash crop in California.
    Fourth generation rice farmer Charlie Matthews knows that the soft approach is the early one, and fears that cities will use any means at their disposal to steal or take his water if he isn’t cooperative. The crisis is that big:
    “In the long term, if we don’t make it available we’re afraid they’ll just take it,” said Charlie Mathews, a fourth generation rice farmer with senior rights to Yuba River water.

    France to Limit Cash Transactions

    Via translation from El Economista, please consider France Limits Cash Payments to 1,000 Euros

    The French Government will limit cash payments to 1,000 euros, compared to 3,000 euros today, a move that will come into force in September to combat terrorist financing and money laundering, in an announcement from Finance Minister Michel Sapin.

    For non-residents (mainly tourists) the limit will drop from 15,000 to 10,000 euros.

    Also, starting next year, banks will have to notify authorities of any income or withdrawals of more than 10,000 euros per month.

    Restrictions apply to suitcases with money or goods of value like gold.

    • paul

      They want our cash now … later it will be our gold … if global derivative debt has to eventually be paid off in gold … just how much gold will each of us need?

      Here are some simple calculations if anyone is interested … with outstanding derivative debt totaling approximately $300 trillion dollars and global population close to 9 billion … there is currently about $33,000 dollars in derivative debt for every living human being on planet Earth.

      However the bankers can’t squeeze blood out of third world men, women and children who don’t have any gold saved to cover the bankers derivative shenanigans … so the bankers are going to have to cover their derivative debt by squeezing it out of say one billion people in the more developed nations of the world … therefore each of these one billion people would each need to own enough gold to cover approximately $300,000 dollars in derivative debt if the system implodes.

      Now if Jim Sinclair is right and gold goes to $50,000 dollars per ounce the bankers will only have to expropriate six(6) ounces of gold from each of us to cover their debt.

      If Jim Willy is right and gold only goes to $18,000 dollars per ounce … each of us would need about 17 ounces of gold to hand over to the bankers.

      But say Jim Willy and Jim Sinclair are both wrong … and Gold goes to $800 dollars per ounce as Rick Ackerman says … then to cover the bankers debts in a derivative meltdown … each of one billion people will need to own about 375 ounces of gold so the bankers can cover their derivative debts.

      It seems funny … but by Rick Ackerman giving the “least optimistic projection for gold” … is in fact requiring us to buy “even more gold” to satisfy the bankers debts!

      Now … as to why the bankers should be so privileged … that they can “take our gold” (or our cash from the bank) to pay off “their bills” … is a different question all together!

      Only about 10 billion ounces of above ground gold exists in the world (315,000 tons) … “all of it will be gone” once 27 million people buy 375 ounces of gold each … meaning the other 973 million people will not be able to get any! (and this does not take into account all the gold being taken off the market by China, India, Russia, etc.).

      So in conclusion … we better hope Jim Sinclair is right … as then only six billion ounces (187,500 tons) will be needed to cover the bankers debts … and knowing the bankers … they will figure some way “to require us” to hand it over to them!

    Great report Greg! I always enjoy your analysis of current events. It feels like our country is being set up to be destroyed on purpose. Illegal immigration, that can’t be good for us when our own employment and economy is falling apart. Making any deals with Iran when the want to wipe Israel off the map and destroy us with an emp. Then let’s downsize our own military as Russia and China both increase theirs exponentially. I agree with you. Reality will meet fantasy very, very soon. The day is quickly approaching when the majority will receive a huge reality check. The upcoming military drill is very suspicious. These things have a tendency to go hot. I also don’t think its a coincidence that Texas is listed as a hostile state. Texans love their freedom. When they get pushed, they push back. From a tactical standpoint, if I wanted to conquer & destroy this nation, I would start with Texas.

    PFI;

    The field of battle is before us. Now allow me to “prognosticate” the most probable course of actions. The Russians have been prepositioning the subs, and when the moment is right, they’ll pop cruise missiles out of them. The missiles can reach a speed of 550 mph in about a minute. Right at the mouth of the Potomac would be perfect for one sub to pop out half a dozen. One missile incinerates D.C.; one climbs to 300 miles altitude and detonates for an EMP to send the U.S. into the Dark Ages, four more for the East Coast Cities of New York, Baltimore, Norfolk, and Philadelphia.

    The West Coast would see the loss of Seattle, Portland, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. The Russians (and their allies the Chinese and North Koreans) will cut off the pipeline and annex Alaska, driving southward into the country east of the Rockies and cutting the nation in half. They could then seize the Mississippi and all of the arable heartland of the Midwest. The invaders would also want the Imperial Valley in CA, and all of the oil of the Gulf States.

    Nyquist on p 201 (of his previously mentioned book) listed two vital principles for Soviet War-waging: “The enemy must be destroyed or conquered; the ultimate Soviet objective is total victory and not mere survival.” The Russians are great chess-players. They play a conservative game with each move a calculated risk thought out many moves in advance until the time to strike. Then they attack openly and decisively in a skilled and ruthless manner. They are great fighters. I know this from personal experience, and not from fighting alongside them. We are in the eleventh hour; let’s hope it isn’t too late to riposte as the clock ticks toward midnight. Remember, my fellow countrymen, there’s a Friday at the end of every week.

      I’m still under the impression that the Russians are putting on a staged show to placate the masses. They don’t need to launch a strike when this country can be brought to its knees financially with the stroke of a computer key by the Chinese in September. I think they will be brought in by the NWO to enforce martial law and root out potential threats. In short we have been sold out from within by the western cabal that controls Washington.

        jerry,

        i agree, as it crossed my mind also, since eco. chaos is cheaper, and easier, as china wants to purchase us one bit at a time, russia included. tks.

      • paul

        In the global chess game the Russians are no longer playing defense … Russia has gone on the offensive … in the Baltic for instance … they are sternly warning Denmark that if it joins Nato’s missile defence shield … its navy will become a legitimate target for Russian nuclear attack!

    • Allen Ols

      “So when you see headlines like the one I’m looking at right now, it says, ‘Russian Navy carries out mock attack on nuclear submarine,’ this kind of story is definitely going to accelerate. We are seeing Russia but also China as well making significant efforts to upgrade their offensive capabilities. So, yes, we are going to be in a world where the old nuclear weapons treaties either no longer apply or protect us from even having to think about these issues.
      The Russian Perspective
      From a Russian perspective, they don’t feel like they are arbitrarily provoking the West. They feel like they are genuinely defending and preserving their core national interests, which is exactly how the U.S. and NATO feel about things as well.
      In other words, this can’t be resolved quickly and easily. We’re going to be in a confrontational environment and the question is: What form does it take? So it is a bit scary when you see a country like Sweden, which has a history of being neutral, saying they are going to boost their submarine fleet in the Baltic and send troops to Baltic Islands in anticipation that they are going to have to defend themselves from Russia.
      Even Bigger Issue At Stake
      So these things (geopolitical dangers) are real but there’s a much bigger issue at stake and that is this whole post-war international economic order having been based on the U.S. dollar and U.S. policies that were predicated on the assumption that they served everybody’s interests. What China and Russia are now saying is, ‘They don’t serve our interests anymore.’
      It’s really apt that the British decided to join the new emerging market BRIC Bank — the new institution that China and Russia are creating to act as a substitute or a new version of a combined World Bank/IMF structure. It’s the infrastructure bank for emerging markets. This is another way that they (Russia and China) challenge the supremacy of the United States.
      White House Reacts Forcefully
      And it was fascinating to see the White House slap-down the British quite forcefully — their closest ally — and say, ‘You shouldn’t have done that.’ This has raised all kinds of questions because the British view is: ‘If this institution is going to be funneling big amounts of money into emerging market infrastructure, which clearly needs to be built, then are we smarter to be on the inside where we can keep an eye on what’s going on, or on the outside where we don’t know?’
      The American view is, ‘We don’t condone any participation.’ And I think the rest of the world, including America’s allies, are going to say, ‘Well, actually this is better than war, right? It’s better to work with them in the context of building the world economy, than to stay out of that dialogue and instead intensify the business of sending troops to borders.’ KWN.COM

    Israel has gotten itself into a fine mess … Netanyahu’s strategy of “direct confrontation” with US Policy was a very risky move on his part … which is now further isolating Israel … Netanyahu has now “very openly” departed from American Policy with regard to both Palestine and Iran … infuriating the US … which is now in the process of abandoning Israel as a Middle East regional power in favor of Iran … and this could mean military support for Israel may no longer be sacrosanct like in the old days … the strain generated by Netanyahu’s strategy of “direct confrontation with American Policy” may have already eroded US political support for Israel to the point where the US won’t use its veto power at the UN to swat down anti-Israel resolutions or Palestinian attempts at reaching statehood … American diplomats now may simply begin abstaining from votes or even join to authorize resolutions against Israel … all at a time when Palestinians are planning to file “a war crimes suit” against Israel at the International Criminal Court. Those in charge of figuring out the ramifications of Israel’s “direct confrontation policy with the US” better begin to recognize the strategic importance of the United States to Israel … instead of deepening the rift!

    • paul

      Reports that Saudi Arabia has already purchased a number of nuclear weapons from Pakistan is “a pretty good indication” that Iran already has nuclear armed ICBM’s … so the entire Middle East is most likely one giant nuclear powder keg right now … with many “emotionally volatile” people having their fingers on their respective nuclear launch buttons … shouldn’t these government leaders (in their own and their peoples self interest) seek to be “stabilizing the region” instead of doing things to inflame emotions even more?

    Greg,

    A great wrap-up, as usual. The part about the realistic military exercises caught my attention, so I looked further, both because of the timing and because both 9/11 and the Boston Marathon “events” occurred when “exercises” were scheduled to take place. It’s being called Jade Helm and there is an official document describing it at BrCoComm021015ArmySpecialOpsCommand.pdf. On page 9, you will see the logo for the “op,” titled “Jade Helm: Master the Human Domain.” Gave me chills when I read that and realized how much deeper this goes. Most of what I could find was about operations in Texas. I couldn’t find anything for the other six states that are supposed to be participating, but just looking at this one document was more than enough for me!

    Greg, if Obama thinks he can go to the United Nations and push a Palestinian state against the will of the Israel he has taken his Imperial Presidency & “kneel & kiss my ring” to a new level even for him. The God of Abraham, Issac & Jacob may have a few things to say about that, even Mr. Obama can’t impose his will on Him. Love you cartoon this week, too bad its all too real (true). Our “radicalized” President has a lesson to learn if he tries to violate the covenant God made with Israel thousands of years ago, unfortunately God may punish the population at large for the indiscretions & antisemitism of its leaders. Christians should pray for our leaders, including the President, that they make right decisions concerning our ally Israel & their security or we may all suffer the consequence thereof.

    I saw the news story about the lady naval commander getting fired or relieved of duty. The key word is her command is the ‘LINK’ between the president and the commanders of the nuclear forces. I would hope this naval commanded would have to approve sending the launch codes onto the actual personal who would launch a preemptive strike. If she refused to forward the launch codes, then the system would not work, at least for a few hours. If she did refuse to complete her orders on launching a preemptive strike, i suspect we will never see her again, she would know too much. If she attends a public event soon, then she probably didn’t do much wrong.

    The biggest threat at the present moment is the possibility if an accident , that could quickly start WW III. American and Nato forces are right up against the russian borders, with a lot of missile systems actively pointed at each side. Both sides have a lot of air force training exercises going on all the time. If some lowly officer makes a mistake and takes out several fighter jets or bombers of the other side, then a very large hot war would be the result within hours. The United States nuclear forces are now at def-con 3 level, ready to launch within 15 minutes. The Russian nuclear forces are deployed, ready to launch within minutes also. There is no longer a direct hot line between the Russians and American president offices. The Russians have their automated system active to launch everything they have, if a nuclear blast is detected within Russia. The Ukraine war is about to got hot again, probably within a month, at least that is what the rebel commanders are planning for. The Kiev government have not applied the Minsk cease fire plan, only to use the truce to resupply the front lines. With all of this going on , how could anything go wrong. If you have not personally witnessed the deep hatred that these people have for each other, then most americans can not really understand the danger that exists in that part of Europe.

    China is the one to watch, they are rapidly preparing for a war, if it becomes necessary . During the last several months of 2014, the Chinese have received a large amount of very advanced technology from Russia. I think it was last november the Chinese had 100 fighter pilots in Russia being trained to operate Russia’s latest fighter aircraft. Russia is also helping Chinese build advanced naval assets, some with state of the art nuclear power systems. The Chinese would rather just buy up every asset they need around the world, but will be ready for a war and win, within 2 years. I always thought of the Chinese business model to be similar to the Ferengi on the Star Trek Deep Space Nine TV series , entire culture based on profit, which is ok.

    Certainly looks like we are in the last end of the Fourth Turning. Wars and severe financial strife . I must go now and enough enjoy the nice sunny day outside. Good times or bad, all we have anyway is today.

    Greg,
    You may be right about this coming September. Too many “coincidences” are lining up.
    Today is a total solar eclipse, on Nisan 1 (first day of the Hebrew year). Biblical scholars believe that this indicates judgement. Take note that the same event occurred in A.D. 70, when the Temple was destroyed in Jerusalem by the Romans. The Pope is scheduled to address the U.N. in September as well. We could build quite a list of things that point to September, not the least of which would be the final Blood Moon.
    Thank you for your fine work my friend.

    • Emeth

      Regarding the significance of the Eclipses, please consider the following comment –

      A lot of attention has been given recently in a variety of Christian publications to apparent celestial coincidences, most commonly the coincidence of lunar and solar eclipses with important Jewish holidays and feasts. Unfortunately these claims generally follow the same pattern of attributing undue significance to perfectly ordinary and anticipated astronomical events coinciding with holidays and feasts whose timing is determined by the very same astronomical cycles that create those events. In other words, its not unlike the coincidence of finding a Mercedes car at a Mercedes dealership; it is exactly what we should expect.

      The rationale behind this particular claim is particularly spurious.
      There will be a total eclipse of the sun over the North Pole for 2 minutes at 10.18am (GMT) this Friday, March 20th. It is also the 1st day of ‘Nisan’ – the 1st month of the Biblical calendar year. It is also the day of the Spring Equinox…1 of only 2 days each year where the entire planet is exposed to equal amounts of sunlight. As far as can be discovered, the “co-incidence” of these 3 factors has never happened before in human history.
      To start with the 1st day of ‘Nisan’ – the 1st day of the 1st month of the Jewish calendar year – is timed to be as close to the Spring Equinox as possible, so rather than being a coincidence it is no surprise and perfectly normal for these dates to coincide.
      Secondly, solar eclipses always and only ever occur at New Moon, which of course determine the beginning of the Jewish lunar month.
      Third, there are roughly 2 solar eclipses every year 6 months apart, and more than a quarter of these are total, meaning that a total eclipse of the sun will typically occur somewhere on our planet roughly every two years.
      Consequently, far from being a coincidence, it is perfectly routine and to be expected that these 3 factors will coincide. Perhaps if they coincided with a total solar eclipse at *Jerusalem* on that date then we might have cause to wonder; but this eclipse occurs at the North Pole, so unless its time to introduce Santa to Easter it is difficult to see what the fuss is about. What is so exceedingly rare about this eclipse, and what is so important about the North Pole to Israel and the world?
      What we have is a normal natural event occurring at a normal natural location being treated as an astonishing coincidence and then given fictitiously symbolic importance. The result is pure superstitious nonsense. Solar eclipses at *any specific location* are rare, even though solar eclipses themselves are routine and must occur somewhere. And no one ever suggested the North Pole was a significant place for God to give signs to all humanity until now.
      I am critical of all superstition, and these particular claims of astronomical coincidence and significance are particularly spurious. The prophet Isaiah warned Israel not to be taken in by the superstitious appeals to astrology, and dismissed those who made predictions associated with the new moon…

      Stand fast in your enchantments
      and your many sorceries,
      with which you have labored from your youth;
      perhaps you may be able to succeed;
      perhaps you may inspire terror.
      You are wearied with your many counsels;
      let them stand forth and save you,
      those who divide the heavens,
      who gaze at the stars,
      who at the new moons make known
      what shall come upon you
      Isa.47:12-13

    It looks like to me its an all out mad dash to the exits by a vast number of countries who smell financial blood in the water with the United States. I think the Feds inability to raise interest rates, has sent a clear message to these countries that our government has no intention or ability to control its own financial destiny. At this rate I’m beginning to wonder if the time line for a September debt explosion is a bit optimistic?

    The Fed can continue to buy up bonds and print money, but what difference will it make if the currency is so debased that no other country will honor it?

      It seems to be going to the moon … but the mistake people make when they see such a chart is to expect current trends to persist indefinitely … well the world just doesn’t work that way … everything is cyclical (just ask Charles Nenner) … actually the best time “to sell” an asset is when it is universally loved and trading at super-high prices … just as the best time “to buy” an asset is when it is universally despised (like gold and silver right now) and trading at super-low prices (as many WatchDoggers are doing)!

      When I look at the US Dollar chart above … I see a “Head” forming right now … where the “Left Shoulder” peaked at 95.85 … meaning the US Dollar Index “could” fall to 94 from here … then rally to 96 to form the “Right Shoulder” at about 96 … and then plunge back down toward its 50 day moving average (in the high 80’s).

    All these contrived foreign wars and meddling in the affairs of sovereign nations are bread and circuses. They purposely create hostility toward America and distraction back home. The real war is on US soil.

    Welcome to 1938 Germany. The central government has defined which Americans are the potential domestic terrorists. The NDAA was the final death blow to our Founders’ Republic. Our Founders’ greatest fear was a standing army, and that is exactly what is coming together; the militarized Police, the burgeoning army of DHS blue shirts, and now the US Military is being interconnected. Even America’s churches are bowing to evil just like the Pope bowed to Hitler.

    Hi Greg, I just started following you a few months ago, I really enjoy your analysis and the guests you have. Seems to be lots of smart people around your corner of internet here.

    I’m not sure how you feel about Alex Jones, but he has made claims that Iran already controls some nuclear weapons, as well as Saudi Arabia, which you stated. It certainly wouldn’t shock me.

    I was in the army from ’89-’93, so as you might expect, I watched the break up of the Soviet Union very closely. Nobody knows what the hell happened to all the warheads that were deployed in all the SSR’s that had -stans at the end. Certainly a lot of them were returned to Mother Russia, but I imagine a few went on the market for cash and favors. A nation such as Iran surely had influence in the border republics and the cash to buy a few.

    My impression is we are not currently trying to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons, we’re trying to prevent them from being able to manufacture their own.

    from Base Camp Pura Vida,

    Interesting about the USASOC exercise in the southwest this summer. It is not the first time that an unconventional warfare exercise has occurred on US soil. There are always ongoing counterinsurgency operations that occur in North Carolina. They are named “Robin Sage”. They involve local citizens in the mid- central part of the state. The aggressors are the 82nd and III Phase Special Forces candidates are taught the specifics of field UW operations. It is an exercise where SF soldiers teach “indig” (indigenous) classes in weapons, commo, combat lifesaver, demo, DZ/LZ ops, and leadership. They have been war gaming the UW operation in these locals for over 35 years at least.
    The war in Ukraine is low level at this time. I am disturbed by the lack of info on the foretold deployment of the Airborne infantry battalion out of Vicenza Italy. Supposedly they were to be deployed two weeks back. Airborne infantry troops are not the soldiers of choice to train Ukrainian conscripts. The more likely candidates would be SF soldiers out of a SF Group with an European area of operations . The ideal candidate would have attended a CLP or DLI course in Russian or if possible, Ukrainian. I suspect SF Russian speakers already on the ground using Satcom and GPS tracking for target acquisition planning. I see an escalation once the spring comes and the ground is less muddy after defrost.
    As for the exercise in the Southwest over the summer. The war game is for the real world scenario of when TSHTF. The question is does it translate to a potential real world scenario. The only real world scenario I can see is a potential insurgency across Texas and Utah. The Mormon history in relations to the federal government is sketchy at best. I would say that there is bad blood still. The Mormons I know believe in the ideas of prepping and it would not surprise me that they have stored weapons and ammo caches. The same goes for Texas. Remember the Alamo; still taught in public education.
    The Mormons have infiltrated the NG Special Forces units based out of Utah and the west. This has been going on for at least 25 years. How many Mormons have joined into the FBI in the western USA. Many.
    Something dreadful comes our way. Famine, violence, despair, fear. Fear will be the greatest. People will faint from intense fear. I translate this medically as the possibilities of fatal arrhythmias, myocardial infarcts, and cerebral vascular accidents.

    I have come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ is the only answer.

    Matthew 14:27

    “But straightaway Jesus spoke unto them saying. “Be of good cheer; it is I, be not afraid.””

      Good post, with information I had not seen elsewhere, even here. I found an article (http://www.army.mil/article/88618/Robin_Sage_exercise_to_run_in_North_Carolina_counties_Oct__13_through_24/) about the Robin Sage exercises you mentioned that describes what they are and where they are held. They are being run 8 times a year and have been done since 1974.

      I agree with your conclusion about what is coming, except I think it will be more complex than that. People will look for escape and there will be none. Peace be with you and thank you for sharing that information.

      Northern Arizona had an interruption of nearly all electronic communications a few weeks back. This led to loss of business and personal commo especially in Flagstaff. Supposedly some “vandals” cut the main cables between Phoenix and Flagstaff. The story briefly appeared on the local news and mysteriously we have not heard about anything in follow up. I suspect a test run of some sorts since the media was waved off from follow up.

      Geographically northern Arizona has the potential for survival. The Navajo and Hopi have been surviving for a millennia using spring water sources up on the Rez. In Arizona, spring water typically bubbles up at around an elevation of 4,000ft above sea level. The Apache, Hopi, and Navajo have survived using the spring water sources and still use them at remote areas of the Rez. The water typically has high levels of arsenic and in some areas uranium.
      The Grand Canyon south rim has the potential for a government bug out site. The airport can be used by large aircraft (ie presidential 747). In fact, the airport at the Grand Canyon is used by military aircraft on a routine basis. Water comes from Roaring Springs on the north rim.
      The USASOC UW field exercise this coming summer covers Arizona. There is to be a HQ element located in Phoenix. How does Phoenix figure into the scenario? Being that it is an Interagency exercise (military, DEA, FBI, DHS, CBP, state/local, etc), I would guess that the plan is to integrate all agencies to include intelligence assets in Fort Huachuca, the nations largest NG air ops training base in Marana, AFB’s Davis Mothan/Luke, MCAS Yuma, Navajo Army Depot, and the Federal fusion centers throughout the southwest.
      War games always have a reason. For example, Brimfrost/Jackfrost are major operations that war game the potential for attacks in the Alaskan area of operations to include the pipeline and refinery at Valdez. The southwest has several strategic targets of military importance. I would rate Palo Verde nuclear as the most important. Others include dams such a the ones at Lake Powell, Roosevelt Lake, and Lake Mead. I would also look at pump stations on the CAP that provide water to major metropolitan areas such as Phoenix and Tucson.
      Sometimes SF teams can be used as probes to determine the security of such high value targets.

      The other angle to this madness is the possibility of an low level EMP attack across the southwest coupled with loss of sitcom and gps from a nuclear detonation in space. USASOC would be some of the first troops into the area.

      I believe that foreign special ops teams can easily penetrate into the southwest and may already be here. That could mean the delivery of a SADM device as a possible false flag. And who is not to say that part of this war game is not to practice delivery of such a munition to a strategic target.

      I was at the Costa Rica/Panama border crossing in July 2014 when two Toyota SUV’s pulled up to immigration. Out jumped 15 men dressed in typical Afgani clothing, with beards , speaking perfect Spanish, heading north to points unknown. I was not able to see their passports but they were definitely out of place. It was a long ways to the US border. How many others are making the same trip and from where?

    Hi Greg,
    Can I leave a reply about Thursday’s guest, Mr. Kotlikoff?

    For Mr. Kotlikoff to go before the Senate committee reponsible for the budget and explain to uncomprehending senators what the debt really is shows again that it is already “game-over.” It is only a matter of when it happens and ultimately how devastating it all will be. Even if some in Congress could be convinced or they already know the truth, what can anyone do? Anyway, the Congress has played a major role in creating this mess over many years.

    I hope the “powers that be” can “kick the can down the road” for as long as possible. At
    the same time, part of me wants the Collapse to happen during the Obama administration. I want to see Obama and his ideology forever discredited and the free-market system have some hope of being saved.

    Everyone eligible for social security should get Mr. Kotlikoff’s book. If those in power are getting all they can while the getting is good, why not the rest of us do what we can to help us prepare for what is coming. If a lot of people start to take advantage of these not widely known social security benefits, I could see the goverment someday closing them.

    • Paul from Indiana

      Mr. Craig, In the event of a near-term crash, The Left, and their lapdogs, the mainstream media, will try to paint Obama as the tragic hero, who TRIED to save the system, save the people against ALL odds, but they were too much to overcome etc. They will portray him as a hero for all time. It will be enough to make one sick. Best always. PM

      Congress will keep pushing the Social Security can down the road until everyone drops dead by the age of 65 (by poisoning our food, medicine and water) … then all the money they collect from those under 65 will be theirs to use as they want … that’s why they ignore and brush off Kotlikoff’s warnings!

    Well it seems some of us DO have a clue about what is really happening…..
    AND in fact what we are told relentlessly from those on the outside….is now factual….straight from the horses mouth & on record.
    Here is an article about what happened in September 2014 where the UN discussed the Global Sovereign Debt restructuring and a Global Monetary Reset. “Unsustainable” !!!
    Enough said.
    https://www.bullionstar.com/blogs/koos-jansen/un-preparing-for-global-sovereign-debt-restructuring/
    Interestingly the UN (with its World Bank and IMF cronies ) are making noises even through Jan, Feb and continuing into March and beyond. Strange that their activity is proportional to the ever increasing spectre of the AIIB, SGE, ADB and Renminbi trade hubs being established globally.

    • paul

      Notice they stress … “debt relief” … “debt cancellation” … and “debt restructuring” as debt crisis “prevention and management tools” (sounds something like a “debt jubilee” as spoken of in the Bible).
      They also want to prevent hedge funds from purchasing distressed debt at deeply discounted prices in order to pursue “full payment” via litigation.

    Another good wrap up, Greg. Wanted to get your opinion On Karen Hudes the world bank whistle blower. Listened to two or three of her video’s and I noticed she believes in another species that she also confesses are real and are part of the ruling class. I kinda choked on that one. Makes me wonder if she may be a little over the edge. Also if we can trust the information she gives on the insiders and governments working to correct all of this. Not trying to be judgmental, just want you opinion. Have you ever seen or know of such a species?

    • Greg Hunter

      Don,
      I do not know about anything about this. Ms. Hudes does have legit credentials.
      Greg

    • Emeth

      Don, it’s a theory that some extrapolate out of the Genesis record (Gen.6:4), where many believe that ‘fallen angels’ (called sons of God), procreated with woman and produced giants (Nephilim), which they take as some sort of hybrid species of super-man. The Web is full of similar conspiracy theories, and many of them are built around this concept.
      Hudes seems to believe something similar, and in an interview she clearly said that a friend of hers was at some senior meeting and a very large headed person was in attendance, which she suggests, by association, is one of these.
      Sorry to sound so critical, but its all conspiratorial nonsense.
      Gen.6:4 has nothing to do with angels mating with people, that interpretation is just a distortion of the record that is built upon some ancient mythology. Mankind always blames someone else for his problems. The Son’s of God in Genesis were clearly the sons of Seth who married the sons of Cain. Do some research on the meaning of these words, using this free web tool –
      http://www.blbclassic.org/index.cfm

      • Don

        Thanks Emeth, I was already aware of Gen. 6 and its teachings. Of Seth and the promised line and Cain. I couldn’t remember if Mr. Hudes associated this species she believes in with the biblical record or not. David Ink also goes pretty far about this stuff. Even though some of his teaching about ancient religions, like Babylonians, have truth in them, but seem to depart from biblical record into other forms and Idea’s other religions have in them. It’s like an attempt to look at world religions from a historical view, without a firm belief of faith, found in Christianity.

  47. ANON

    In the 1980s I worked for a Middle Eastern gov’t where I worked with hundreds of moslems from every continent on the planet. I had many friends whom I held very close to my heart of these people for many years. Those of us who worked for this Fulbright funded org located now in DC who were not moslem were Christian & were a minorty. Maybe 10% of us were American. Any way, I maintained my friendships from my 20’s to my 50’s. After that, my career took me to working with int’l students at the university level – Dir of Int’l Student Services. In 2009 I visited a local mosque with some int’l students I was, at that point, working with on a volunteer basis. What I saw at that visit I considered very “odd” – a locked library and a locked “computer room” they would not allow us in to during this tour. A “locked” library?

    After the mosque visist I was actively pursued (I felt I was being recruited) by a member of this mosque with calls on nearly a daily basis by a man by the name of [email protected] al …… There are details but I won’t go in to those – I shared the details with both the FBI and Steve Emerson of the International Project on Terrorism whom I sent am item [email protected] have given me. [email protected] told me he must have the item back as there were few left. I think this item was associated with Siljander who has been since convicted of aiding and abetting terrorism – Steve told me he would return the item to me if it wasn’t important intel and I never got it back). Any way, this guy told me the Tarheel [email protected] was his personal friend (he attended that particular mosque as well) and was most definitely innocent and being rail-roaded by the govt. (BTW, the FBI very well documented the case and 1000s of munitions had been taken from his home when he and his sons were arrested.)

    While all this was still sinking in, I took the same group of in’t students for another mosque event at a diff local mosque (this one a Paki mosque – the first one primarily an arab mosque) where traditional music was performed in a large auitorium filled w/ over 1000 people. I was 1 of 2 anglos at the event. The Paki performer called everyone in the audience [email protected] during the performance. For the sake of as much brevity as I can lend this … my world turned upside down in 2009 and, at 52, I had to totally change my understanding of who these people that I dearly loved are. They are liars. Israel knows better than anybody else on the planet what these “children of Hagar” of the bible are and have always been. They seek dar al islam covertly in every land until they get enough population to, through [email protected], turn a country in to a Saudi Arabian–style state. I know better than most people what that means having worked within a medeavil [email protected] culture. We colleagues of this org I mention above – even the other arab nationals – hoped our middle eastern employer would advance out of its iron age culture but since the 1980s what we all hoped for has never happened. And it was never meant to happen either – but we didn’t know it then. Now, all the “modern” moslems are nowhere. Where is the dissent toward terrorism among my moslem former colleagues in this country? They are all utterly silent and they are, hence, compliant and complicit.

    Thank you for being objective about Israel. I am very thankful for public people like you who GET IT. It took me wellll past 911 to totally wake up. Opening my eyes was very difficult and it remains painful to me that my career of working with young people around the world for a better world and a better life for all was a sham all along. How naive I was to care so much and then end up where we are all at now – wondering how we will pull out of this.

      Anon, not long ago, there was a publication, here in Oklahoma, that printed an article over the Muslim Mosque in America. The article stated that foreign students, several nonprofit muslim organizations, and political activist groups who attended these mosque where in reality big supporters of the muslim brotherhood. The mosque were being used to promote the destruction of our society and a take over. In Phoenix and Templeton Arizona, a meeting was called for the law enforcement personnel in that area, and a film and a speaker teaching some 300 law enforcement people what was going on in the local mosque. I also took the article to the local police force, and left the whole printed article with them. Obama and Clinton’s have ties to muslim brotherhood, and many of the high ups have been to the whitehouse as guest.

    hi Greg another riveting roundup, my head is spinning with all the great information that i get from you and your posters . I would agree with jerry on his statement that Russia and China would prefer to see the U.S. taken down without a messy war. In sun tzu’s the art of war it is ideal to win without bloodshed. I believe that is the end game here. They do have an economic nuclear weapon on their side ,and that is the ultimate reset in gold valuation which will bring all fiat currency based economies that are unwilling to return to a gold standard to their knees. I have also noticed that you and Jim Willie are polar opposites on Israel and their involvement in the geopolitical arena and maybe that is why he hasn’t been on in a while. Anyway all the best to you and a very Happy Easter to you and yours

    Greg here is one more reason for people to move outside the cities. Russia is developing new long range missiles.
    http://freebeacon.com/national-security/northcom-russian-cruise-missile-threat-to-u-s-grows/

    • paul

      This is why it may not be in Israel’s best interest to sabotage US efforts to come to some sort of accommodation with Iran … the Iron Dome protecting Israel will be “of little use” against an Iranian developed KH-101 cruise missile like Russia’s … which can attack critical infrastructure (such as electrical grids, nuclear power stations, air and ground forces, etc.) … such cruise missiles [even with conventional bombs] pose very serious threats … because they can defeat Iron Dome defenses by flying at low altitudes (behind terrain) to avoiding radars … and some of the newer cruise missiles even have “radar-evading stealth features” making them even less visible to radar and infrared detectors … such low-flying cruise missiles [even with conventional bombs] can overwhelm Israel’s best defenses by attacking with multiple missiles coming from different directions … so all the fuss about Iran’s nuclear capability may be better served by allowing the US to reach some sort of accommodation with Iran.

  51. mike (North Central Texas)

    Greg, another thing that gets me is how the globalists destroy the higher wages of a nation by exporting the higher paid jobs to the emerging nations, seeking slave labor. Then they ponder why the economies turn down? The new job holders don’t have the income because of those lower wages to buy the higher priced items to keep investment in most higher dividend stocks producing gains. Sure this provides an increase in the basics needed by the people of emerging nations, but not purchases in the big ticket items. Thus the slow downturn begins as strong economies weaken over time.
    Great nations were built on higher wages. If the opposite were true, then 80% of the world would be a thriving metropolis! Henry Ford had the formula correct in my opinion.
    We as a nation import more than we export, therefore a stronger dollar is good, but that requires good paying jobs here in this nation, that manufacture things and isn’t based on financial instruments or consuming spending alone.
    But I miss the point of the globalists I think, the point is to destroy these economies in order to control them thru debt. Last century was the century of manufacturing and profit. This century is about international banksters and governments (but I repeat myself) forcing people into submission and dependency on the banksters and their ill gained profits, thus completing an evil agenda.

      Yes Mike … what we have to do is what Switzerland is proposing to do … to give free cash to each family … the Swiss want to give each of their citizens about $60,000 dollars each every year … I think we “Exceptional Americans” deserve to get more then the Swiss people … perhaps a free $100,000 per year … then see how business booms … we will have an instant thriving economy and economic boom … yes there will be inflation … but hell we can “increase the free money given out” by adjusting the payouts with the inflation rate … and we can say good bye to deflation (the bane of any fiat monetary system)!

    Everything that is happening is for the purpose of ushering in a one world government. Our country is being attacked from the inside. Whenever nature brings rainfall to California, chemtrails are used to prevent it from raining. If the war on terror was real the U.S-Mexican border would have been sealed off 15 years ago. American jobs have been sent overseas just like Ross Perot predicted. Ranch lands are being confiscated from their owners by the government and sold to foreign companies. (Have you noticed the price of beef lately?) One of the main reasons for sending American troops to the Mideast was to eliminate and incapacitate potential defenders of our nation. The party’s over. Deflation has run its course, and inflation lies ahead. (This sounds like something Thomas Jefferson warned us about.) Buckled up! We’re gonna be in for a rough ride.

They keep using the old proven over and over.

      “A revelation by Jesus Christ, which God gave him, to show his slaves the things that must shortly take place.”—REV. 1:1.

      Which parts of the immense image symbolize the Anglo-American World Power?

      How does John depict the relationship between the Anglo-American World Power and the United Nations?

      How do Daniel and John portray the end of human rulership?

      THE prophecies of Daniel and John correspond in ways that allow us to understand the meaning of many present and future world events. What can we learn by comparing John’s vision of the wild beast, Daniel’s account of the fearsome beast that had ten horns, and Daniel’s interpretation of the immense image? And what should a clear understanding of those prophecies move us to do?

      Let’s address John’s vision of the wild beast. (Rev., chap. 13) Most Bible students agree, the first six heads of the beast represent Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome. All of those expressed hatred for the seed of the woman. (Gen. 3:15) Rome, the sixth head, remained a dominant political force for centuries after John wrote down his vision. Eventually, the seventh head would take the place of Rome. Which political world power did that prove to be, and how would it treat the seed of the woman?
      BRITAIN AND THE UNITED STATES RISE TO POWER
      We can identify the seventh head of the wild beast of Revelation chapter 13 by comparing John’s vision with Daniel’s vision of the frightening ten-horned beast. (Read Daniel 7:7, 8, 23, 24.) The beast that Daniel saw represented the Roman World Power. (See the chart on pages 12-13.) In the fifth century C.E., the Roman Empire began to fragment. The ten horns sprouting from the head of that fearsome beast represent kingdoms that grew out of that empire.

      Four of the horns, or kingdoms, that sprouted from the head of the ferocious beast receive special mention. Three are plucked out by another horn, “a small one.” This was fulfilled when Britain, a former outpost of the Roman Empire, grew to prominence. Until the 17th century, Britain was a relatively insignificant power. Three other regions of the old Roman Empire—Spain, the Netherlands, and France—were far more influential. Britain plucked those powers out one by one, removing them from their positions of prestige. By the mid-18th century, Britain was on its way to become the dominant power on the world scene. But it had not yet become the seventh head of the wild beast.

      Though Britain gained dominance, colonies in North America broke away. Even so, the United States was allowed to grow mighty, protected by British naval power. By the time our present last surviving generation came upon the scene during our first world war, Britain had built the largest empire in history and the United States had become the greatest industrial power on earth.
      New Living Translation
      I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place. ◄ Matthew 24:34 ►

      During World War I, the United States forged a special partnership with Britain. The seventh head of the beast had now emerged as the Anglo-American World Power. How did this head treat the seed of the woman?

      Jesus indicated that during his presence, “coming”, a remnant of the seed would be active on earth. (Matt. 24:45-47; Gal. 3:26-29) The Anglo-American World Power waged war with some these holy ones. (Rev. 13:3, 7) During World War I, it oppressed some, banned some of their publications, and threw some so called pacifists, “conscientious objectors,” into prison. (Matt. 25:40)

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W87k64HU9gE

      THE ANGLO-AMERICAN WORLD POWER AND THE FEET OF IRON AND CLAY
      What is the relationship between the seventh head of the wild beast and the immense image? Britain—and by extension, the United States—grew out of the Roman Empire. What, though, about the feet of the image? They are described as an amalgam of iron and clay. (Read Daniel 2:41-43.) This description coincides with the time when the seventh head—the Anglo-American World Power—would come to prominence. Just as an iron structure mixed with clay is weaker than solid iron, so too the Anglo-American World Power is weaker than the power from which it emerged. How?

      At times, the seventh head of the beast has displayed ironlike characteristics. For example, it proved its power by winning World War I. During World War II, the ironlike power of the seventh head was also evident.* After that war, the seventh head at times still displayed ironlike characteristics. However, from early on, that iron has been mixed with clay.

      Gods servants have long sought to understand the symbolic meaning of the feet of the image. Daniel 2:41 describes the mixture of iron and clay as one “kingdom,” not many. The clay, therefore, represents elements within the sphere of influence of the Anglo-American World Power, elements that make it weaker than the solid iron of the Roman Empire. The clay is referred to as “the offspring of mankind,” or the common people. (Dan. 2:43) In the Anglo-American World Power, people have risen up to claim their rights through civil rights campaigns, labor unions, and independence movements. The common people undermine the ability of the Anglo-American World Power to act with ironlike strength. Also, opposing ideologies and close election results that do not end up in a clear majority have weakened the power base of even popular leaders, so that they have no clear mandate to implement their policies. Daniel foretold: “The kingdom will partly prove to be strong and will partly prove to be fragile.”—Dan. 2:42; 2 Tim. 3:1-3.

      In the 21st century, Britain and the United States have continued their special partnership, often acting together in world affairs. The prophecies about the immense image and the wild beast confirm that the Anglo-American World Power will not be replaced by some future world power. This last world power may be weaker than that represented by the legs of iron, but it will not disintegrate on its own.

      Does the number of toes of the image have special meaning? Consider: In other visions, Daniel mentions specific numbers—for example, the number of horns on the heads of various beasts. Those numbers are significant. However, when describing the image, Daniel does not mention the number of toes. Therefore, the number seems no more significant than the fact that the image had multiple arms, hands, fingers, legs, and feet. Daniel does specifically mention that the toes would be made of iron and clay. From his description, we can conclude that the Anglo-American World Power is the one that will be dominating when the “stone” representing God’s Kingdom hits the feet of the image.—Dan. 2:45.

      Though the Anglo-American World Power is a mixture of iron and clay, the visions that Jesus gave to John show that this power would continue to play a key role during the last days. How so? John saw a vision of a two-horned wild beast that spoke like a dragon. What does this strange beast represent? It has two horns, so it is a dual power. John is again seeing the Anglo-American World Power but in a special role.—Read Revelation 13:11-15.

      This wild beast promotes the making of an image of the wild beast. John wrote that the image of the beast would appear, disappear, and then rise again. That is exactly what happened to an organization promoted by Britain and the United States, one that was intended to unite and represent the world’s kingdoms.* This organization appeared after World War I and was known as the League of Nations. It disappeared with the onset of World War II. During that war, God’s people declared that according to the prophecy in Revelation, the image of the wild beast would ascend again. And rise it did—as the United Nations.—Rev. 17:8.

      John described the image of the beast as “an eighth king.” In what sense? It is not depicted as an eighth head on the original wild beast. It is only an image of that beast. Any power it has comes from its member nations, especially from its key backer, the Anglo-American World Power. (Rev. 17:10, 11) But it does receive authority to act as a king to carry out a specific task, one that triggers a chain of events that will change history.
      THE IMAGE OF THE BEAST DEVOURS THE HARLOT
      According to John, upon a scarlet-colored wild beast—the image of the wild beast—rides a symbolic harlot, dominating it. She bears the name “Babylon the Great.” (Rev. 17:1-6) This harlot fittingly stands for all false religion, many religious organizations have given their blessing to the image of the beast and have tried to exert influence over it.

      However, during the Lord’s day, Babylon the Great has seen the waters, the people who support her, dry up dramatically. (Rev. 16:12; 17:15) For example, when the image of the beast first appeared, many churches of Christendom—an influential part of Babylon the Great—dominated the Western world. Today, many churches and their ministers have lost the respect and support of the masses. In fact, many people believe that religion contributes to or causes conflict. An increasingly vocal and militant group of Western intellectuals is calling for the end of religion’s influence on society.

      False religion, however, will not just fade away. The harlot will remain a potent force, attempting to bend kings to her will until God plants an idea in the hearts of those in power. (Read Revelation 17:16, 17.) Soon God will cause the political elements of Satan’s system, as represented by the United Nations, to attack all religion. They will try to destroy her influence and devastate her riches. Such an event may have seemed unlikely just decades ago. Today, the harlot teeters on the back of the scarlet-colored beast. Even so, she will not slip slowly from her seat. Her tumble will be sudden and violent.—Rev. 18:7, 8, 15-19.
      THE BEASTS COME TO THEIR END
      After false religion is destroyed, the wild beast, Satan’s earthly political setup, will be goaded into an attack on God’s Kingdom. Unable to reach into heaven, the kings of the earth will vent their rage on those on earth who support God’s Kingdom. The result is inevitable. (Rev. 16:13-16; 17:12-14) Daniel describes one aspect of the final battle. (Read Daniel 2:44.) The wild beast mentioned at Revelation 13:1, its image, and the two-horned wild beast will be destroyed.

      We are living in the days of the seventh head. No more heads will appear on this beast before it is annihilated. The Anglo-American World Power will be the dominant world power when false religion is done away with. The prophecies of Daniel and John have been fulfilled to the smallest detail. We can be confident that the destruction of false religion and the battle of Armageddon will soon come. God has revealed these details in advance. Will we pay attention to the prophetic warnings? (2 Pet. 1:19) Now is the time to take sides with the almighty and to support his Kingdom.—Rev. 14:6, 7.

      In the Bible, the number ten often symbolizes a complete group—in this case, all the kingdoms that grew from the Roman Empire.

      Although the components of the dual world power have existed since the 18th century, It was not until World War I that the seventh head began operating as a united world power.

      Daniel foresaw the terrible destruction this king would cause during that war, writing: “In a wonderful [awful] way he will cause ruin.” (Dan. 8:24) For example, the United States caused terrible ruin on an unprecedented scale when it dropped two atomic devices on an enemy of the dual world power.
      WHO MAKE UP “ALL THESE KINGDOMS”?
      The prophecy at Daniel 2:44 states that God’s Kingdom “will crush and put an end to all these kingdoms.” That prophecy refers only to the kingdoms pictured by the various parts of the image.

      What about all other human governments? The parallel prophecy in Revelation reveals the larger picture. It shows that “the kings of the entire inhabited earth” will be gathered against Jehovah on “the great day of God the Almighty.” (Rev. 16:14; 19:19-21) Hence, not only the kingdoms of the image but also all other human governments will be destroyed at Armageddon.

        Australia appears to be the latest major nation showing an interest in becoming a founder member of the bank, with Canberra reportedly set to pledge about $2.3 billion to the project, the Sydney Morning Herald reported on Friday.

    I’m trying to make sense of the cartoon. I think it’s meant to cast Obama in a negative light, and although I’m no fan of his and didn’t vote for him, it looks like the cartoonist missed his mark.
    Having a man like Cheney despise you is a not bad thing. After all, he is a wanted war criminal, POWs were tortured under his watch, he lied us into an illegal war of choice that took the lives of thousands of U.S. soldiers and severely injured many thousands more, his company made a fortune on their sacrifice through wasteful no bid government contracts, and he’s a draft dodger who never served. And of course, evidence strongly indicates that he was a key player in the false flag attack of 9-11-01. I’d be far more concerned about Cheney’s friends than his enemies!
    Then the cartoon shows people who allegedly approve of Obama. First on the list appears to be Fidel Castro. Here’s a man who courageously led his fellow countrymen into a battle against a brutal and oppressive U.S. backed dictator, and in spite of decades of U.S. sanctions, coup and assassination attempts, and a failed invasion, he managed to achieve one of the highest literacy rates on the planet, lowest infant mortality rates, excellent health care, excellent rural water sources, quality, free education through college, and a high life expectancy. And he’s never threatened any of his neighbors or started a war. Cuba exports doctors not weapons and terrorism. But, Cuba doesn’t coddle or cater to banksters or or the corporate ruling elite, so the ruling elite despise him. I’m glad Obama is relaxing the embargo. The rest of the world has been asking us to do that for many years, plus I want the freedom to visit Cuba.
    Next on the list is Isis. Not sure what to make of those guys. The lead head cutter has a British accent and his videos look staged. Whoever is behind them, I don’t see why they’d like Obama, unless it’s because of the “errant “weapons drops into Isis controlled areas.
    Next up is Iran. Another formerly democratic country whose popular government was overthrown by the CIA and replaced by a brutal and corrupt U.S. backed dictator known as the Shaw. If not for U.S. intervention , religious fanatics likely never would have come to power in Iran, but the U.S. backed Shaw was just too brutal, so the people turned to the only other choice. Unlike its most rabid critics, Iran has no history of threatening or attacking its neighbors and doesn’t seem to pose a threat now. And as far as I know, Iran is in compliance with all the demands made by the international community regarding its nuclear program, and it has signed the non proliferation treaty. So why does the cartoonist think that easing tensions with a peaceful nation and choosing diplomacy over bombs and terrorism is a bad thing?
    Nest up is Syria’s Assad. I can’t imagine why the author would think Assad approves of Obama, given the fact that Obama is supporting Islamist extremists/terrorists who are attacking his country. That just makes no sense at all.
    Lastly is Putin. The U.S. has accused him of invading the Ukraine, when it was the U.S. who backed the far right fascists who overthrew the government. The U.S. also accused Russia of shooting down Malaysian flight MH17 killing 283 passengers, including 80 children, and 15 crew members. The evidence strongly indicates that it was shot down by the U.S. backed neo-Nazi regime. That’s why the story was dropped by the U.S. corporate owned and censored media and the U.S. isn’t interested in an investigation. So, given that the Obama regime has started a war in Putin’s backyard, accused him of shooting down a civilian airliner, and is generally portraying him a thug and a threat, I can’t begin to imagine why the cartoonist thinks Putin would approve of Obama. That cartoon just seems bizarre….

      Henry,
      You do realize you could not criticize any of the beloved people you mentioned in their respective country without being killed or jailed. I think the total is now 21 journalists have been murdered since Mr. Putin took office. (There is plenty on line you can Google.) That doesn’t mean the U.S. doesn’t do bad things like start political upheaval during the Olympics in Ukraine. Next time you want to come on and trash America, man up and use a verifiable name. Better yet, if you live on one of the above countries, please offer some criticism of the leaders there and by all means use a verifiable name. Oh and if you want to answer this post use a verifiable name. I do.

        Oh, and by the way, I picked the cartoon and yes I thought it was funny. Cheney saying what he did made it even funnier.

    Diane, I am not a global warning fool. Yes climates change and bounce around naturally. There is a trend since the ice age to warming. But the sun cycles and maybe bigger solar system cycles effect the change. Remember the ice age coming in the seventys. There has been no warming for about 18 years as of right now. There is some really good science from Canada where core borings of 10,000 year old ponds have been studied. The warming detail is great and gradual but once in a while interrupted by cooling trend. tey show Volocanic eruptions that changed the weather patterns, warming and cooling and changed human history for periods of time during that 10,000 years but. THere is much evidense arund th world. Everyday volcanos around the world pump more nasty stuff into the atmosphere than all the human cause pollution in history. Yes, I said every day. Read up or see National Geo on the history of the Black Plague. First brougt north from Africa to eastern Europe in Roman ships. The rat fleas temperature reduced to a level that activated the plague because of a volcano that caused no growing season for one or two seasons. Needless to say it weakened humans from lack of food at the same time. I don’t remember all the details but the story is much more. Did Al Gore and others actually believe this hoax? I am sure they did. They are neither educated nor very sharp. They did however have some sharp huxters close by. I knew some of them and was close enough to watch the circus. Happy to see he was not elected. You should have seen the rats running from DC when he lost. Chuckle!!

    Greg;
    I watched that video of C Fits talking to the Secret Space Convention. Next time you interview C A Fits, ask her where all that money(maybe she meant wealth) was going too in Asia? Was it being sent for safe keeping for the elites who were switching horses to another part of the world? So these controllers were gettiing it away from us “little , stupid, insignificant people”? All that black ops, black hole money? She speaks in code sometimes am I am trying to figure out some of it. As you have heard from me, I am a subscriber to the slow burn unless some major upset happens. I think the powers will try anything to keep it slow burn.

    Because There Is Hope

    “The meek will possess the earth, and they will find exquisite delight in the abundance of peace.”—PSALM 37:11.

    The Bible acknowledges that life is “filled with trouble.” (Job 14:1) Today, everyone is touched by tragedy of one sort or another. But some people feel utterly hopeless about life, as if there were no light on the horizon, no prospect for a better future. Is that how you feel? If so, be assured that the Bible offers genuine hope—not just for you but for all humankind. For example:

    • The Bible teaches that God intended something far better for us.—Genesis 1:28.

    • God promises to make our earth a paradise.—Isaiah 65:21-25.

    • The fulfillment of that promise is certain. Revelation 21:3, 4 says:

    “The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

    That hope is not mere wishful thinking. God fully purposes to bring it to reality, and he has both the power and the desire to do so. The hope that the Bible holds out is reliable, and it provides a strong answer to the question “Why go on?”

    REMEMBER THIS: Although your emotions may toss and turn like a boat on a turbulent sea, the Bible’s message of hope can be like an anchor that keeps you stabilized.

    Everything in the world is cyclical … night and day … summer and winter … active Sun and less active Sun … these things are not caused by man … therefore we don’t presently have a “night and day tax” … we don’t presently have a “summer and winter tax” … and we don’t presently have a Solar cycle tax … but I imagine the politicians scheming on ways to blame “all natural cycles” on man … to rake in more money for themselves … just like when Social Security was invented years ago by the politicians … back then the average life span was under 65 … so the crooks thought they could spend all the Social Security money they collected … they didn’t count on us living longer and got fooled … but they are correcting the problem now … by fluoridating our water … chlorinating our bread and cake flour … and brominating our soft drinks … plus GMOing our food, etc, etc. … before you know it … the average American life span will be down to 45 years!!

    • paul

      You know … anyone over 65 should be very weary of going to a hospital … with Obama Care there are now “Committees of doctors that meet to determine what care you should receive” … and the underlying deciding factor is “cost” … so if it is “too costly” to fix you up … they just let you go to heaven early! … it not only keeps medical costs down but greatly helps in solving the Social Security problem … along with a few epidemics and wars … Social Security should be self funding in just a few years time.

    That’s a ‘tu quoque’ reply. There isn’t a single falsehood in what Henry states, is there?
