This country is Satan’s model of democracy. We will take Mother Yahweh’s theocratic Rule any day of the week over Satan’s poorly run government that treats it citizens no better than the Egyptian government did in Moses day.
A revolt is coming, and as the United States takes more and more away from its own people while continuing to squander their future earnings in a massive collection of debt owed to its lenders, Satan’s throne will eventually collapse. China has a right as one of the U.S. largest lenders to inspect its gold reserve. Not if, but when that happens, the real truth of this country being bankrupt will come to the light.
- Ex-Marine Scott Olsen now awake after being hit by projectile on Tuesday
- Police claim they didn’t use rubber bullets during Occupy Oakland protest
- But protester Shamus Collins says he has proof of bruising from bullets
It’s a serious bruise – and this protester claims it was caused by a policeman shooting a rubber bullet at him as he rushed to help an injured Iraq war veteran during this week’s Occupy Oakland protests.
Shamus Collins showed off his bruise to other protesters yesterday at the demonstrators’ new camp – and it is clear evidence to suggest the police did fire rubber bullets, despite their consistent denials.
He rushed to the aid of former Marine Scott Olsen, 24, who was left in a critical condition after being hit by a projectile believed to have been thrown by police on Tuesday at the California protests.
Mr Olsen, who won medals in Iraq, has become a rallying cry for the Occupy Wall Street movement across the U.S. – and the picture of Mr Collins at Frank H. Ogawa Plaza will only heighten their anger.
Officials are investigating exactly where the projectile that hit Mr Olsen came from, but police have denied using rubber bullets to calm the protests – although admitted firing bean bags.
However two other protesters suggested rubber bullets were used, reported the Washington Post.
Jen Lasher posted a picture on Twitter showing a bruise that looks like it was caused by a rubber bullet – and Schuyler Erle tweeted a photo of what he claimed was a rubber bullet found in Oakland.
Meanwhile, a crowd of 1,000 people, many holding candles, gathered on Thursday night in Oakland to hold a vigil in honour of Mr Olsen, who is hospitalised with a fractured skull.
Twitter users and protest websites have been declaring since the incident: ‘We are all Scott Olsen.’
Joshua Shepherd, 27, a Navy veteran who was standing nearby when Mr Olsen got struck, called it a cruel irony that he is fighting an injury in the country that he fought to protect. – DailyMail
Do you want Christ to take control of creation, including this planet? Or do you want to remain under a satanic empire that cannot even feed the masses adequately? Satan offers no real incentive to remain in his family. He cannot offer you good health, even though he tries, or a cure for dreaded diseases, even though he has mankind searching for cures. Make no mistake. Satan wants his empire to flourish and be like Yahweh’s spirit realm and the rest of creation in the expanse, but the way he leads, and the factions within his family, it cannot be achieved.
As someone who works in financial services, I follow the markets – in the West, across Asia and the entire world – closer than most. Since the Bear Stearns collapse in March 2008, through the demise of Lehman Brothers and its ghastly aftermath, much of my professional life has been dominated by the angry flashing of those little lights on a Bloomberg screen.
In recent years, the violent gyrations on financial markets have been deeply discomforting, causing angst among market professionals, like me – but that is the least significant aspect. For those little lights represent, of course, the ebbs and flows of cash which, in turn, determines the fate of real businesses. It is at the sharp end of employment and livelihoods, dispossessed homes and broken families that the human impact of financial turbulence is most keenly felt.
So, yes, I want such turbulence, which will never be fully-eradicated, nor should it be in a free-market system, to now lessen to more manageable levels. Yet the responses of our politicians to recent financial troubles – hiding behind complexity and kicking the can down the road – have not only failed to temper the volatility, but have actually made it much worse.
Last week’s eurozone “agreement”, for all the related fanfare, was a case in point. Far from making the situation clearer, allowing investors to make considered assessments, this latest announcement made Western Europe’s grotesque debt crisis even more acute, sowing further infectious spores of confusion.
The deal itself, unveiled dramatically in the early hours of Thursday, was met with the now obligatory “relief rally”. The FTSE All-World equity index soared 4.1pc, helped by signs of renewed US economic growth. European bank shares spiked no less than 12pc on Thursday, as traders recognised, for all the official obfuscation, the latest dollop of government largesse.
By late Thursday, though, and certainly on Friday, the warning signs were there. Global bond markets, by character more sober and smarter than the excitable equity guys, were voting against the deal. This is alarming. For it is only by selling more bonds that the eurozone’s deeply indebted governments can roll-over their enormous liabilities and keep the show on the road.
Some say Western governments shouldn’t “accept” what the market says. “Who do these trading people think they are,” I hear from the lips of the educated but financially-illiterate political elite. Let’s be clear – if global bond markets stop lending to a number of large Western economies, we are in the realms of unpaid state wages and pensions, transport chaos and closures of schools and hospitals – sparking the prospect of serious civil unrest. Forgive my intemperate tone, but these are the dangers we face. And I’m afraid the only rational response to Thursday’s announcement is that the probability of such undesirable outcomes has just been increased.
European leaders have reached an “agreement”, we were told, with the private holders of Greek debt, who now accept a 50pc write-down on their stakes. This is predicated on an additional €120bn (£105bn) cash-injection by EU member states and the IMF. By paying bond-holders less, and making other savings, the hope is that Greece can cut its sovereign debt from 150pc of GDP to 120pc in the next few years.
This deal was presented as a “victory” by the eurocrats. After all, back in July those nasty private creditors agreed only to a 21pc “haircut” on their Greek debt. The deal is “voluntary”, though, nothing having been decided except the “50pc haircut” headline. In reality, by bargaining hard over coupons and maturities – how much the bonds will pay annually, and for how long – those who so unwisely lent money to Greece (eager to reap high yields, while always expecting a bail-out) will get a much sweeter deal. This is the discussion that will take place, behind closed doors, during the coming months. But that sweeter deal will need to be paid for with yet more sovereign borrowing, by some eurozone government or other, plus further sack-loads of taxpayers’ cash.
It is telling that Greek bond-holders themselves were on Friday reassuring their investors that the reduction in the net present value of their stakes, compared with the “21pc haircut” deal, “will not be overly onerous”. In addition, the July agreement, while also “voluntary”, included a 90pc creditors’ participation. Thursday’s variant cited no such number.
So, the centre-piece of last week’s “package” is far less decisive than meets the eye. It was, in fact, singularly indecisive. The hope that Greece will clean-up its balance sheet autonomously now relies even more on a privatization programme that is already laughably behind schedule. So the moral hazard will go on, making it tougher still for the governments of Portugal, Ireland and the other eurozone “peripheries” to sell to their electorates the virtues of fiscal responsibility. These are not clever-clever academic points. I’m pointing-out, quite simply, what the bond markets will have noticed.
Having said all that, the prospect of “haircuts”, however half-hearted, now looms over eurozone sovereign bond-holders, not least fragile European banks. So Thursday’s announcement also stressed that the €440bn (£386bn) euro European Financial Stability Facility would be “levered”, allowing it to borrow to make it bigger. This is supposed to allow the eurocrats to raise cash without having to trouble national parliaments, given that they’re likely to refuse.
The question of who will lend to the EFSF, on whose collateral, and who will ultimately repay the loans, was barely addressed last week. Such tricky questions will apparently be answered at the next European summit in December. Meanwhile, the fundamental disagreement between France and Germany regarding who should take the biggest losses – eurozone governments or private creditors – remains unresolved. Since Thursday’s announcement, though, Germany’s powerful constitutional court has issued an injunction requiring the country’s full Parliament to approve any EFSF bond-buying.
What is needed, urgently, is a clean, transparent Greek default – allowing this flailing semi-developed economy to leave the eurozone, re-establish a weaker drachma and regain its self-respect. Portugal should leave too, its membership of the same currency bloc as Germany is as absurd, and self-defeating, as that of Greece. There would be further market turmoil, yes, but a few more months of volatility, leading to an ultimately more stable outcome, is surely better than the current situation where the entire world is living in fear of a massive “euroquake”.
The eurocrats, of course, lack the guts to trim back monetary union to a more manageable size. Too much face would be lost. So “euroquake” fears, once viewed as outlandish, are gaining pace. Despite Thursday’s deal, and all the reassurances of a “durable solution”, the Italian government on Friday paid 6.06pc for 10-year money, up from just 5.86pc a month ago and a euro-era high. Such borrowing costs are disastrous, given that Rome must roll-over €300bn of its €1,900bn debt in 2012 alone. A default by Italy, the eurozone’s third-biggest economy, and the eighth-largest on earth, would make Lehman look like a picnic.
The eurozone must be consolidated. World leaders should similarly force European banks to disclose their losses, we all take the hit and then we move on. Instead, we are served-up, in ever more complex variants, the same “extend and pretend” non-solutions. It gives me no pleasure to write this, but I give this deal two weeks. – Telegraph
From 2/15/11 The US Will Declare Martial Law:
Before this year ends the United States will declare marshal law. They are already preparing for what they know cannot be avoided. The roaring of the people of other nations is the model that will span the globe as all countries feeling the crunch of these economic times feels the pangs of distress from the rippling waves of its discontented citizens. The Word states:
Isaiah 17:12 “[ Judgment against the Nations ] Ah! The roar of many peoples— they roar like the roaring of the seas. The raging of the nations— they rage like the raging of mighty waters.”
Luke 21:25 “[ The Coming of the Son of Man ] “Then there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and there will be anguish on the earth among nations bewildered by the roaring sea and waves.”
Yes, even the USA will become bewildered as it falls to its depths of despair that it cannot rise up from.
The United States will shut down the internet in hopes of ending any links of communication to those that are helping to organize and who are fueling the discontent among their people. But they will not be able to halt the end laid out for them. The United States will become as dangerous as Somalia and all places of lawless behavior within its own borders as kayos spreads throughout the country.
If you are military or police anywhere in this world and you take up arms against your citizens you are fighting against your Creator. You will be putting your life in with Satan’s. He will eventually lose his life for eternity, but your life will be extinguished early by the LOZ forces that are going to take up the fight for the remnant, and you will not only lose your precious life, but any remembrance of you will also be extinguished as you are cast out of creation into the dark pit of oblivion. Be forewarned. Your future existence depends on your actions and you heart condition. Either choice you make, also know this: YOU CANNOT WIN OUT IN COMBATING THE LOZ.
On that day, federal authorities are going to shut off all television and radio communications simultaneously at 2:00PM EST to complete the first ever test of the national Emergency Alert System (EAS).
This isn’t a wild conspiracy theory. The upcoming test is posted on thePublic Safety and Homeland Security Bureau website.
Only the President has the authority to activate EAS at the national level, and he has delegated that authority to the Director of FEMA. The test will be conducted jointly by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through FEMA, the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS).
In essence, the authority to seize control of all television and civilian communication has been asserted by the executive branch and handed to a government agency.
The EAS has been around since 1994. Its precursor, the Emergency Broadcast System (EBS), started back in 1963. Television and radio broadcasters, satellite radio and satellite television providers, cable television and wireline video providers are all involved in the system.
So this begs the question: is the first ever national EAS test really a big deal?
Probably not. At least, not yet.
But there are some troubling factors all coming together right now that could conceivably trigger a real usage of the EAS system in the not too distant future. A European financial collapse could bring down U.S. markets. What is now the “Occupy” movement could lead to widespread civil unrest. And there are ominous signs that radical groups such as Anonymous will attempt something major on November 5th- Guy Fawke’s day.
Now we know in the event of a major crisis, the American people will be told with one voice, at the same time, about an emergency.
All thats left to determine is who will have control of the EAS when that day comes, and what their message will be. - The Blaze
China will demand confirmation of the U.S. Gold being held up as collateral for the foreign debt owed to China. An audit of Ft. Knox with independent testing of the claimed gold the U.S. purports to have on demand will send shock waves through the world just as if it was struck by an earthquake. It will leave the U.S. and its debtors reeling in its aftershocks that will bring down much of the world’s economic structure. “Lie about the gold, and what else have you been lying about?” The U.S. will become the most despised nation on earth.

FORTY people have been arrested during what protesters say was a violent dawn police raid on the Occupy Sydney site in the CBD. Police, including riot squad officers, raided the site at Martin Place shortly before 5am (AEDT) today and cleared the area of more than 100 protesters. Activists said police bashed and manhandled protesters who refused to leave the camp and confiscated their possessions amid violent scenes. Forty people were arrested and 29 of those were issued with infringement notices for breaching a local government act, police said. – News.com.au
CHICAGO (AP) – Anti-Wall Street demonstrators of the Occupy Chicago movement stood their ground in a downtown park in noisy but peaceful defiance of police orders to clear out, prompting at least 100 arrests early Sunday, authorities said. Occupy Chicago spokesman Joshua Kaunert vowed after the arrests that the protesters would be coming back. “We’re not going anywhere. There are still plenty of us,” Kaunert told The Associated Press after police began the wave of arrests that took more than an hour to complete. – USAToday

CLEVELAND, Ohio — The 11 Occupy Cleveland protesters arrested Friday night on Public Square in an act of civil disobedience emerged on Saturday disheveled but no worse for wear from their overnight stay in city jail. “Some people got treated a little more roughly than others, but at the end of the day, it wasn’t New York,” said arrested protester Erin McCardle, 23, of Cleveland. “There was no pepper spray, no batons.” – Blog.Cleveland.com
Raleigh, N.C. — Supporters of the “Occupy Wall Street” protests promised to be back in downtown Raleigh Sunday, a day after 20 people were arrested after a demonstration at the State Capitol. Organizers of the “Occupy Raleigh” protests said they would convene again at State Capitol grounds on Edenton Street at noon and 6:30 p.m. Sunday. “Even if we aren’t back tomorrow morning, we will be back,” law school student Jeanelle Alexander said Saturday. – WRAL
The truth is this: The world is destined for a one-world currency – one world rule. What that foreshadows is this: When this system of Satan’s is done away with, you that survive will have those things under the Righteous Rule of Christ Jesus and our Mother Israel. Satan will have his one try at making things work in a distorted mirrored reflection of what is soon to become a reality outside of his influence, because try as he might, no matter how diligent or hard he might, he will fail, and mankind cannot survive even itself without our Mother’s beneficial guidance. Don’t cling to what is destined to pass away. Look to the Kingdom of Christ Jesus. If you do, know that your desires – worldly desires – must change to reflect a new inheritance. “1 John 2:17 And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.” What is the “lust”? It is for wealth, immoral sex, and a list of other things that are also contrary to what benefits your true existence that could be in harmony with our Mother’s Coming Divine Plan of the Ages and on into eternity. Will you be there – because the hourglass has almost emptied – or will you be a casualty of Satan’s dying world? —Archangel Michael
Former Communist leader Mikhail Gorbachev told an audience at Lafayette College on Wednesday night that the United States’ economic problems heralded the need for a new American “perestroika,” defined by a “new world order” and a system of “global governance”.
Speaking to a crowd of 3,600 people during an event that was broadcast live nationwide, Gorbachev made reference to riots and demonstrations that have swept the world over the last two years, including the Occupy Wall Street movement in the United States.
“The world needs goals that will bring people together,” he said. “Some people in the United States were pushing the idea of creating a global American empire, and that was a mistake from the start. Other people in America are now giving thought to the future of their country. The big banks, the big corporations, are still paying the same big bonuses to their bosses. Was there ever a crisis for them? . . . I believe America needs its own perestroika.”
How will this American perestroika manifest itself? As a “new world order” characterized by a system of “global governance,” according to Gorbachev.
“Others, including myself, have spoken about a new world order, but we are still facing the problem of building such a world order…problems of the environment, of backwardness and poverty, food shortages…all because we do not have a system of global governance,” he said.
“We cannot leave things as they were before, when we are seeing that these protests are moving to even new countries, that almost all countries are now witnessing such protests, that the people want change,” he said. “As we are addressing these challenges, these problems raised by these protest movements, we will gradually find our way towards a new world order,” added Gorbachev. – European Union Times
Psalm 94:20 “Can a corrupt throne— one that creates trouble by law— become Your ally?”
Countries, especially the USA, it creates laws that create trouble or problems for its subjects. They claim to be your ally and benefactor, but are in fact corrupt. Satan’s throne was corrupt from day one that he sinned. He carried over that corruption to his children of this old world, and they like him, Satan’s elite, they have an agenda to rule over all nations and to have mankind as their slave class. It has been tested by the banking system, and manipulated by the thieves of Wall Street. All are corrupt.
This story from Bloomberg just hit the wires this morning. Bank of America is shifting derivatives in its Merrill investment banking unit to its depository arm, which has access to the Fed discount window and is protected by the FDIC.
This means that the investment bank’s European derivatives exposure is now backstopped by U.S. taxpayers. Bank of America didn’t get regulatory approval to do this, they just did it at the request of frightened counterparties. Now the Fed and the FDIC are fighting as to whether this was sound. The Fed wants to “give relief” to the bank holding company, which is under heavy pressure.
This is a direct transfer of risk to the taxpayer done by the bank without approval by regulators and without public input. You will also read below that JP Morgan is apparently doing the same thing with $79 trillion of notional derivatives guaranteed by the FDIC and Federal Reserve.
What this means for you is that when Europe finally implodes and banks fail, U.S. taxpayers will hold the bag for trillions in CDS insurance contracts sold by Bank of America and JP Morgan. Even worse, the total exposure is unknown because Wall Street successfully lobbied during Dodd-Frank passage so that no central exchange would exist keeping track of net derivative exposure.
This is a recipe for Armageddon. Bernanke is absolutely insane. No wonder Geithner has been hopping all over Europe begging and cajoling leaders to put together a massive bailout of troubled banks. His worst nightmare is Eurozone bank defaults leading to the collapse of the large U.S. banks who have been happily selling default insurance on European banks since the crisis began. – The European Union Times

CHICAGO, Oct. 16 (Xinhua) — The distrust and resentment manifested by Occupy Wall Street protesters towards the U.S. financial system could bear precarious consequences on the future of the United States, experts have told Xinhua.
Although the protesters account for only a small percentage of the national population, their frustration with the current economy and some of the government’s policies are shared by many, they said, citing similar rallies in dozens of other U.S. cities as evidence.
“America is in the midst of a massive ideological debate about the future of the country — what its economy will look like, and the role of capitalism and big government in America,” Richard Wottrich, a senior managing director at the McLean Group, told Xinhua.
Though it is still too early to tell what would be the legacy of the protests, the ongoing social movement may prove influential in determining the future course of the country at this difficult hour in its history, Wottrich said.
Luigi Zingales, a professor of entrepreneurship and finance at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, echoed that the protests are “an indication of all the underlying forces that lead to some form of popular revolt or popular dissatisfaction.”
“The question is how this will be channeled politically. And depending on how it will be channeled, we might have completely different outcomes,” the professor added.
The Occupy Wall Street protests, Zingales noted, incorporate some forms of populism, namely movements by the common people against those they see as elites, which has been associated with both exploitative pandering and constructive change in history.
The broadly-shared sentiment behind the protests would potentially make the movement fairly easy to recruit support and expand influence, said the professor, who predicted in a 2009 article that populism would grow in the United States following the 2008 financial crisis.
Together with colleagues from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, Zingales has developed a financial trust index that measures changes in the U.S. public’s trust towards the financial system and private institutions.
The most recent research on the index, Zingales told Xinhua, showed a markedly decline in public trust towards banks.
The professor added that behind the protesters’ choice of Wall Street as their major target is their increasing hostility towards the cooperation between the government and big corporations, although the public-private partnership is central to the U.S. economic system.
“The public-private partnership is designed to have the efficiency of the private sector and the goals of the public sector, and I fear it ends up being the efficiency of the public sector and the goals of the private sector,” Zingales said.
“What happens is basically taxpayers are subsidizing private profits… That is not what these people from Occupy Wall Street want,” he said.
Although the United States has adopted legislation such as the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act to regulate financial services, many U.S. citizens accuse the present measures of being insufficient and call for more action. – Xinhua.net
Satan is now faced with shifting his attention to the European Union as his new chair of authority, or, whatever his devious and cunning mind might try to surprise us with. Either way, the United States is on its last leg. The intended domino effect is underway by the LOZ and will continue on the course Yahweh has set.
Satan will lose this throne and gain another in the his installment to that of the European Union whom will issue the World currency that will soon come into existence.
You are each watching the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle fall into place.
The world’s jigsaw puzzle, involving all of the intelligent creations, and with France whom is a dominate military power for the New Roman Empire – consisting of the European Union’s family making up the New Rome – and the United States being in the background and backing the New Rome as the Beast that is falling from power, you can piece the jigsaw puzzle together as things are now taking or falling into place piece by piece.
Know this: All things, including headlines, spoken words, numbers, sounds – regardless of what makes them, they are all part of the puzzle that brings forth the answers to what is happening. Everything presently going on in the visible material realm is an intricate piece of the puzzle that ties in and fits in to what is the over all picture of the rise and fall of Dawn Lucifer Satan the Devil’s adventures over the last 6000 years of his rule. He is copying the LOZ by forming a joint alliance that prospers his rising power in quest of world dominance. All things reflect other things. Each county that is rioting against their rulers and wanting change of government reflects the individual fall of each nation on this planet as Christ’s kingdom draws ever near to coming into full power.
In unusually direct language, finance ministers and central bankers of the Group of 20 major economies said they expected an October 23 European Union summit to “decisively address the current challenges through a comprehensive plan”.
French Finance Minister Francois Baroin, who chaired the meeting, said Berlin and Paris, the leading euro zone powers, were well on the way to agreeing a plan to reduce Greece’s debt, stop contagion and protect Europe’s banks.
Non-euro countries highlighted the damage the European crisis was already doing to their economies and underlined the urgent need for action by the 17-nation single currency area.
“Europe needs to get its act together because unless the crisis is put to an end, it will start to affect emerging economies which have enjoyed strong growth,” Japanese Finance Minister Jun Azumi said.
His Canadian counterpart, Jim Flaherty, said the risk of a global recession would be dramatically higher if next Sunday’s European summit failed to deliver.
British finance minister George Osborne told reporters his continental euro zone colleagues “will have left Paris under no misunderstanding that there is a huge amount of pressure on them to deliver a solution to the crisis”.
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner told reporters he was encouraged that the latest EU moves toward an overall strategy to tackle the two-year-old crisis contained the right elements, notably a recapitalization of European banks.
“They clearly have more work to do on the strategy and the details, but when France and Germany agree on a plan together and decide to act, big things are possible,” Geithner said.
“I am encouraged by the speed and direction in which they are moving.”
The communique urged the euro zone “to maximize the impact of the EFSF (bailout fund) in order to address contagion”. EU officials said the most likely option was to use the 440 billion euro fund to offer partial loss insurance to buyers of stressed member states’ bonds in a bid to stabilize the market.
Efforts by some countries to increase the IMF’s warchest to fight the crisis ran into resistance from the United States and others on Friday, burying the idea for now and putting the onus firmly back on Europe.
Geither said the IMF already had very substantial financial firepower and Washington would support committing more of the existing resources to supplement a well-designed European strategy with more euro zone funding.
As the G20 finance ministers and central bankers met in Paris, anti-capitalist protesters rallied around the world, shouting their rage against bankers and politicians accused of ruining economies and condemning millions to hardship through greed and bad government.
Many of the protests, galvanized by the Occupy Wall Street movement, were small and peaceful. But in Rome hundreds of hooded rioters burned cars and smashed shop and bank windows in some of the worst violence in the Italian capital for years.
RESISTANCE FROM BANKS
Germany and France are trying to put flesh on the bones of a crisis resolution plan in time for the EU summit.
It will involve plans to recapitalize banks, make Greek’s debt mountain more sustainable and ramp up the firepower of the bloc’s rescue fund.
For once in the long-running crisis, the timetable is ambitious. But analysts see risks that forcing banks, the main source of business investment in Europe, to raise more capital could doom the region’s faltering growth, and that the reduction in Greek debt may be too small to avoid a default.
There were growing signs that Athens’ creditor banks will fight any attempt to make them shoulder a bigger burden in restructuring Greece’s debts. The lead negotiator of the banking lobby representing private bondholders said there were no grounds to impose bigger “voluntary” losses on their debt than the 21 percent agreed in July, which looks insufficient.
“We do not see that a compelling case has been made to reopen the (July) deal. A deal is a deal,” Charles Dallara, managing director of the Institute of International Finance (IIF) told the Financial Times.
The G20 statement pledged to ensure banks are adequately capitalized and have sufficient access to funding, and said central banks would continue to provide liquidity to banks as required.
Fears of a Greek default have undermined confidence on volatile markets since late July, with global stocks falling 17 percent from their 2011 high in May.
But they have picked up since the leaders of France and Germany set an end-October deadline for comprehensive action.
NO CHANGE ON YUAN, FOREX LANGUAGE
While the European crisis was the main focus, Washington and Beijing continued to spar over China’s currency.
Geithner said China should let the yuan rise more rapidly to benefit global growth.
Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao rebuffed U.S. pressure for a more rapid appreciation, assuring exporters at the Canton Fair in Guangzhou on Saturday that China’s exchange rate would remain “basically stable” to protect them.
Chinese negotiators prevented the G20 from going beyond wording issued at their last meeting in Washington on the need for emerging market nations’ currencies to be more flexible.
Ministers agreed that advanced economies would cut deficits while emerging economies would continue their move toward greater exchange rate flexibility and boost domestic consumption.

Hundreds of hooded, masked protesters rampaged through Rome in some of the worst violence in the Italian capital for years Saturday, torching cars and breaking windows during a larger peaceful protest against elites blamed for economic downturn.
Police repeatedly fired tear gas and water cannon in attempts to disperse them but the clashes with a minority of violent demonstrators stretched into the evening, hours after tens of thousands of people in Rome joined a global “day of rage” against bankers and politicians.
Smoke rose over many parts of the neighborhood between the Colosseum and St John’s Basilica, forcing many residents and peaceful demonstrators to run into buildings and churches for shelter as militant protesters ran wild.
After police managed to push the well-organized radicals away from the St. John’s area, they ravaged a major thoroughfare, the Via Merulana — building barricades with garbage cans and setting the netting of the scaffolding of a building on fire.
Discontent is smoldering in Italy over high unemployment, political paralysis and 60 billion euros ($83 billion) of austerity measures that have raised taxes and the cost of health care.
The violence at times resembled urban guerrilla warfare as protesters hurled rocks, bottles and fireworks at police, who responded by repeatedly charging the demonstrators.
Around 70 people were injured, according to news reports, including one man who tried to stop the protesters from throwing bottles.
Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno blamed the violence on “a few thousand thugs from all over Italy, and possibly from all over Europe, who infiltrated the demonstration.” Some Rome museums were forced to close down and at least one theater canceled a show.
Protesters also set fire to a building, causing the roof to collapse, reports said. The Defense Ministry denied reports it was one of its offices.
Premier Silvio Berlusconi called the violence a “worrying signal,” and added that the perpetrators “must be found and punished.”
Berlusconi barely survived a confidence vote Friday, with many questioning his leadership. Italy’s debt burden is second only to Greece in the 17-nation eurozone and the country is rapidly becoming a focus of concern in Europe’s debt crisis.
At one point radicals surrounded a police van near St John’s Basilica, pelted it with rock and bottles, and set it on fire. The two occupants managed to escape, television footage showed.
Some peaceful demonstrators also clashed with the militants and turned some of them over to police.
A day of worldwide protests inspired by the Occupy Wall Street movement in the United States began Saturday with the hundreds of people gathering in cities from Japan and South Korea to Australia.
Organizers had hoped to see non-violent demonstrations in 951 cities in Asia, Europe, South America and Africa in addition to every state in the United States.
In the continental Europe’s financial capital, some 5,000 people protested in front of the European Central Bank , while in London, around 500 people marched from St. Paul’s cathedral to the nearby stock exchange. A website called 15october.net urged the people of the world to “rise up” and “claim their rights and demand a true democracy.”
“Now it is time for all of us to join in a global non violent protest. The ruling powers work for the benefit of just a few, ignoring the will of the vast majority and the human and environmental price we all have to pay. This intolerable situation must end,” the website says.
About 2,000 people, including representatives of Aboriginal groups, communists and trade unionists, protested outside the central Reserve Bank of Australia.
“I think people want real democracy,” said Nick Carson, a spokesman for OccupyMelbourne.Org. “They don’t want corporate influence over their politicians. They want their politicians to be accountable.”
The crowd cheered a speaker who shouted, “We’re sick of corporate greed! Big banks, big corporate power standing over us and taking away our rights!”
How does a group like Occupy Wall Street get anything done?
Danny Lim, a 67-year-old immigrant from Malaysia, said he moved to Australia 48 years ago in search of opportunities.
Now he no longer trusts the government to look after his best interests. He thinks Australia’s government has become too dependent upon the U.S. for direction.
“The big man — they don’t care. They screw everyone. Eventually we’ll mortgage our children away,” Lim said.
Where the ongoing nuclear crisis dominates public concerns, about 200 people joined the global protests Saturday.
Under the light drizzle, the participants marched outside the Tokyo Electric Power Co., which operates the tsunami-hit Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, chanting anti-nuclear slogans, while opposing the U.S.-led Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade bloc that Japan is considering joining.
“No to nuclear power,” the marchers chanted as they held up banners.
Over 100 people gathered at the Taipei 101 skyscraper, home to the stock exchange , chanting “we are
Taiwan’s 99 percent”, saying economic growth had only benefited companies while middle-class salaries barely covered soaring housing, education and healthcare costs.
They found support from a top businessmen, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp Chairman Morris Chang, who told reporters in the northern city of Hsinchu that Taiwan’s income gap was a serious issue.
“I’ve been against the gap between rich and poor,” Chang said. “The wealth of the top 1 percent has increased very fast in the past 20, 30 years. ‘Occupy Wall Street’ is a reaction to that. We have to take the issue seriously…”
About 100 members of various groups under the Philippine left-wing alliance, Bayan, marched on the U.S. Embassy Saturday morning to express support for the Occupy Wall Street protests in the United States and to denounce “U.S. imperialism” and U.S.-led wars and aggression.
They carried a large banner that said, “Resist imperialist plunder, state repression and wars of aggression,” and another expressing “Solidarity action for Occupy Wall Street.”
They also chanted “U.S. troops, out now!” in reference to the presence of hundreds of U.S. soldiers, mostly in the southern Philippines, involved in anti-terrorism training of Filipino troops. One man carried a placard saying “Genuine people’s democracy lives in the streets.”
In South Korea, activists gathered on the streets of Seoul.
The Korea Herald newspaper reported that a coalition of 30 local civic groups planned to hold a two-day protest in the main financial district of Yeouido and other parts of the capital.
The protesters, who have adopted slogans and imagery used by those in the U.S., say the rally is designed to motivate “99 percent of Koreans” to complain about the actions of the wealthiest “1 percent,” the paper said.
“The situation is the same in South Korea (as the U.S.), where the financial institutions have speculated to earn high profits in a short time.
The protesters want compensation for people who lost money in the banking crisis.
Seoul police warned that damaging public facilities, occupying roads and assaulting police officers would not be tolerated, the Herald said.
“We will arrest those who stage illegal protests on the spot and also seek legal action even after the rally ends,” the Seoul Metropolitan Agency said in a release, the paper reported.
The call for mass protests around the world Saturday originated a month ago from a meeting in Spain, where mostly young and unemployed people angry at the country’s handling of the economic crisis have been demonstrating for months.
It was reposted on the Occupy Wall Street website and has been further amplified through social media.
Protesters in London vowed to occupy the London Stock Exchange Saturday. Nights of rioting rocked the British capital in August after the fatal police shooting of a 29-year-old man.
“We have people from all walks of life joining us every day,” said Spyro, one of those behind a Facebook page in London which has grown to some 12,000 followers in a few weeks.
Spyro, a 28-year-old who has a well-paid job and did not want to give his full name, summed up the main target of the global protests as “the financial system.”
Protests were planned for Saturday in cities including Montreal and Vancouver. In Toronto, demonstrators plan to gather at Canada’s main stock exchange.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said he doubted Canadians would be as angry as their neighbors to the south as Canadian banks have not received a U.S.-type bailout.
He declined to comment when asked if he was concerned about a possible repeat of street violence that Toronto experienced at the G-20 summit last year.
In the United States, the hundreds of protesters at Manhattan’s Zuccotti Park — site of the original Occupy protest — called for more people to join them.
Politicians in both President Barack Obama’s Democratic Party and the Republican Party struggled to come up with a response to the growing nationwide movement.
Democrats have been largely supportive but also wary of endorsing criticism of Obama’s rescue of big banks in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. The bank bailout was launched in the last months of President George W. Bush’s administration.
Republicans at first criticized the demonstrations but have shifted their tone in recent days.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor warned of “growing mobs” but later said the protesters were “justifiably frustrated.” - MSNBC
Isaiah 17:12 [ Judgment against the Nations ] Ah! The roar of many peoples— they roar like the roaring of the seas. The raging of the nations— they rage like the raging of mighty waters.
No one will halt the roar of the people, at least not until Satan makes his appearance as prophesied and claims to have the answer to mankind’s dilemma.
On Romney’s Mormon religion:
Talk show host, Bryan Fischer said, A President “needs to be a main of sincere, authentic, genuine Christian faith.”
Southern Baptist Convention leader, Pastor Robert Jeffress, called Mormonism “a cult.”
A straw poll was conducted of Republican Presidential candidates. The clear winner was Ron Paul, but leaders were skeptical.
More controversy arose after the much anticipated straw poll vote was tallied. There were gasps in the ballroom when Congressman Ron Paul, a Libertarian, was announced the winner by a decisive margin. Hundreds of Paul supporters attended the event just long enough to hear their candidate speak and cast their vote, then left. Ideally, the straw poll is intended for voters who attend the entire event and hear all the candidates.The attire of some of the “in-and-out” voters (one attendee wore a shirt that said “Atheist and Proud of It”) suggested not all were “values voters” (Read Tony Perkins’ report on VVS HERE).
Of course, abortion was a big issue with all the attendees, but possibly best summed up by Fischer,
“We need a president who sincerely believes in the God-given, inalienable right to life and who believes that that right begins at the moment of conception. This means a president who would not even think of appointing to the Supreme Court a judge who does not believe that Roe v. Wade was not only unconstitutional but profoundly immoral. A president who believes that no judge is qualified to sit on traffic court, let alone on the Supreme Court, if he does not understand that the primary purpose of law and government is to protect innocent human beings from violence at every stage of life.”
On gay rights and same sex marriage, Perkins had this to say:
“Last weekend, speaking at a fundraiser for an organization that is working to redefine the family and overturn the laws that protect marriage and morality, this is what the president said. He said the 2012 elections “are a contest of values. That’s what’s at stake here. The fundamental debate about who we are as a nation.” You know what? That’s the first time I’ve agreed with this president. This is a contest of values.”
Presidential contender, Rick Santorum went even further:
“You want to have a successful economy? The single thing you can do is to nurture and support the institution of marriage and fathers taking responsibility for their children, building that solid foundation upon which society rests. And that means standing up and defending the institution of marriage as between one man and one woman, not backing away from it.”
One of the newest themes involved the media…specifically, they want to pray away the negative coverage they have gotten.
FRC President Tony Perkins offered this perspective: We clearly recognize the fact that Mormon theology includes doctrines that are distinct from Evangelical theology and Catholic theology. At the same time, the goal of the values voter movement is not to build a “National Church.” Our goal is to build a national coalition based on the shared values of respecting human life, strengthening natural marriage, defending religious liberty, promoting personal and fiscal responsibility, and maintaining our national security. When we successfully work together with those who share our values, we are preserving and strengthening our religious liberty, so that we can freely share the truth of the gospel with everyone.
Perhaps most surprisingly, the organizers had strong words and prayers for the Occupy Wall Street Protesters:
The sixties-style tent city protest, which seemed to fizzle after its September 17 launch, now has momentum and is expanding to cities across the nation, including Washington, D.C. Organizers of the movement (e.g. ACORN, labor unions, and other far-left leaders and groups) have been given new life by the sycophant liberal media, Hollywood celebrities and leading Democrats in Washington, including President Obama. Six arrests were made when one hundred demonstrators conducted an illegal demonstration inside a Senate office building (see Gullible, Who’s Behind it?, Official Website, Senate Building).
- May God prevent these radical organizers from stirring revolution and distracting voters from the elections and keeping watch on our elected leaders (Num 16:1-14; Is 1:4-6; Pr 12:11-12; Mt 26:41; Eph 4:28; 1 Tim 6:3-10; Heb 13:5-6). – AddictingInfo.org
The United States and the EU has brokered a deal with the Palestinian leadership to divide Jerusalem with them. This will cause Israel to go on the defense and make an attempt at militarily halting the divide. The EU will try to force Israel to comply.
Is this Joel’s prophecy coming to pass? Yes. The pawns are in place to bring forth the prophetic events to fruition. Israel will be swarmed by a military force that is compared to a swarm of locust. Know this: Each prophecy has a literal meaning and a spiritual meaning. Two things coupled together that forms the coupler.
Joel 1:4 4 What the devouring locust has left, the swarming locust has eaten; what the swarming locust has left, the young locust has eaten; and what the young locust has left, the destroying locust has eaten.

With the Arab uprisings gradually reconfiguring the regional political landscape, Israel is finding itself increasingly isolated. For at least a decade, Israel has identified Iran as its main strategic nemesis, but the Arab spring has rekindled simmering tensions between Israel on one hand, and Arab states as well as Turkey on the other.The ongoing conflict within Syria could also jeopardize the implicit modus vivendi between Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Israel, paving the way for a potential conflict in the future. The whole Arab landscape has actually shifted: the Hezbollah faction is playing a central role in Lebanese politics; the Egyptian public is demanding a reassessment of the 1979 Egypt-Israel peace treaty; and the Jordanian government is facing growing domestic political pressure. Israel is grappling with a totally new emerging regional order.
Meanwhile, Iran has continued with its nuclear enrichment, meanwhile enhancing its ballistic missile capabilities. Palestine, bolstered by growing international support, is pushing for statehood, circumventing the Israeli-dictated “peace process.” Domestically, large demonstrations have shaken major Israeli cities, as people across the political and economic spectrum demand crucial economic and social reforms. There are also growing signs of splits within the Israeli bureaucracy over plans to attack Iran.
Therefore, unless the Netanyahu administration makes necessary changes in its policies, the country might emerge as the biggest loser of the Arab uprisings. This is the perfect opportunity for the Obama administration to redeem itself by pressuring Israel to make necessary compromises, re-evaluate its inhumane policies toward Gaza, and make necessary reforms before it’s too late. The clock is ticking fast. – Eurasia Review
Do you think this sort of thing could not or would not happen here in the U.S.? Time will tell – The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.
Up to 7,000 prisoners are held in dozens of makeshift detention centers in Libya more than two months after rebel forces toppled Muammar Gaddafi, amid serious allegations and some evidence of torture, the United Nations said on Friday.
Transitional authorities lack a clear system for screening and registering detainees, thus opening the door to ill-treatment, Mona Rishmawi, a senior official of the U.N. human rights office, told a briefing after a weeklong visit to Libya.
Prisoners include people arrested at checkpoints without identity papers, suspected mercenaries from several regions, pro-Gaddafi fighters captured on the battlefield or people whose names appeared on lists of people to be rounded up, she said.
“There are thousands of people who are being held, we are talking about a large number. It could be up to 7,000,” said Rishmawi, who is in charge of the office’s rule of law branch.
“The majority of these people have not gone through a (judicial) process. This of course is a recipe for abuse. There are indications of very serious issues going on.”
In all, there are believed to be 67 makeshift detention centers across Libya, compared with a few central prisons during the 42-year-rule of Gaddafi, she added.
The International Committee of the Red Cross has visited at least 40 Libyan prison facilities, ICRC spokesman Steven Anderson told Reuters on Friday. Its confidential findings about conditions are shared only with detaining authorities.
Amnesty International issued a report on Wednesday saying Libya’s new rulers were in danger of repeating human rights abuses commonplace under Gaddafi. The NTC said it would look into the report.
“EVIDENCE OF TORTURE”
Hanny Megally, head of the U.N. human rights office’s Asia, Pacific, Middle East and North Africa branch, led the mission to Libya. They met ministers of the National Transitional Council, as well as activists and lawyers, and visited some prisons but did not speak with inmates.
“…We actually believe that the situation in the prisons is that there is ill-treatment, there are allegations and evidence of torture. Yes, I can say that,” Rishmawi said. – Reuters
The United States government has been monitoring the internet for years. This is nothing new. Trying to decipher the mood of its masses is how it makes future preparatory decisions. When the vault at Fort Knox was inspected in the 70′s by a the U.S. Congress, what they viewed was what they believed to be gold bars. But, can you trust your eyes, or must you see what is beneath that which sparkles? The 2009 expose of the faked bars by the independent London Bullion Market Association revealed all that glitters is not always what it first appeared to be. Congress has been fooled once, but will it allow itself to be fooled again?
The collapse of the United States monetary system will cause a domino effect around the globe. The only way to rectify the world’s failing economic collapse is for an international currency to be put into place and under the scrutiny of an independent reserve that monitors all holdings.
The Federal Reserve is seeking contractors to build a tool that will monitor and analyze blogs, news reports, and social-media chatter about the central bank and its policies, with a goal of being able to use “public relations” strategies to counter the growing barrage of negative publicity. But critics quickly added to the institution’s troubled image as the news spread by lambasting the half-baked scheme as “Orwellian” spying and “intimidation.”
The Fed’s “Request for Proposal” explains that the institution needs a platform to “monitor billions of conversations” and “identify and reach out to key bloggers and influencers.” Information collected will be used to measure the effectiveness of the central bank’s “public relations” and “communication strategies” — known in laymen’s terms as propaganda operations.
“There is need for the Communications Group to be timely and proactively aware of the reactions and opinions expressed by the general public as it relates to the Federal Reserve and its actions on a variety of subjects,” the document states. News outlets, Facebook, Twitter, forums, blogs, YouTube, and other social media platforms will all be targeted.
“A system like this is not cheap,” noted The Economic Collapse Blog, which called the Fed’s plan a “very creepy” part of a disturbing trend. “What the ‘authorities’ want is for us to shut up, sit in our homes and act as if nothing wrong is happening. Meanwhile, they seem determined to watch us more closely than ever.”
The system being sought, which the Fed calls a “Sentiment Analysis And Social Media Monitoring Solution,” should be able to gauge the sentiment and tone expressed by the public. And it must be able to gather information from different countries and regions in multiple languages.
“The solution must provide real-time monitoring of relevant conversations,” the Fed demanded, saying it should also be able to offer summaries or overviews of public sentiment on a variety of topics. An “alerting mechanism” that automatically sends out notifications based on a “predefined trigger” must be incorporated in the system, too.
Other demands listed by the central bank include the ability to track the reach and spread of its propaganda, “handle crisis situations,” and identify emerging trends in Fed-related discussions online. The desired system would also be able to differentiate between “influencers versus followers,” and gauge the true impact of specific anti-Fed criticism beyond simply comparing online traffic data generated by a particular source.
The financial analysis site ZeroHedge, apparently the first media outlet to uncover and expose the scheme, fiercely ridiculed the central bank and its tactics. But it also noted that “the Fed has just entered the counterespionage era and will be monitoring everything written about it anywhere in the world.”
The central bank, however, is not alone. Numerous critics of the plan have compared it to President Obama’s recently unveiled “Attack Watch,” a service for Americans to report negative statements about the administration or its policies. The citizen-snitching operation, as it has been dubbed, also prompted ridicule — but grave concern as well.
And as The New American reported in March, the U.S. military was exposed earlier this year seeking a tool that would allow a single government agent to operate multiple fake social-media characters simultaneously. The objective, similar to the Fed’s desired “solution,” is to monitor critics and influence public opinion through propaganda.
Analysts said authorities’ growing interest in tracking and manipulating public sentiment expressed online is a sign that the alternative media is becoming increasingly powerful as the “mainstream media” continues to implode. Others said the efforts also appear to be desperate intimidation tactics aimed at quieting the growing wave of public outrage aimed at the Fed, the undeclared wars, and the Obama administration.
Fury over the privately owned central banking system and its policies — multi-trillion-dollar secret bailouts, mass manipulation of markets, wild money printing, resisting a government audit, and more — has been steadily rising for years. Official documents released in 2009 revealed that even the U.S. military was concerned about the growing “End the Fed” movement. – The New American
Shared with this ministry by Seraiah, 2nd in Command of the LOZ, in 2010 was a warning of what was to come: “The European Union will pull itself together and make a move on the chess board. They will move into the dominate position in a pushing match against China and the Middle East. Israel will come under attack and be overrun when the U.S. falters in power.”
Would it be wise to get out of the cities when this occurs?
“Yes. Just as the prophecy to the Israelite’s to leave the city when they see what is happening, now applies to all cities. Be armed and be prepared to defend yourself as you exit. As this culminates, all power grids will go down. Mass hysteria will feed off of itself. Death will become rampant as people are killed and as many more commit suicide. The military will try and roadblock the cities to keep people in. They will try to bring order but will come under attack from within with turncoats and as military bases fall to subversive groups.”
In recent weeks, intense discussions have taken place in Israeli military and intelligence circles about whether or not to launch a military strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities. Apparently, the key question in the debate was how to ensure that the United States took part in the attack or, at the very least, intervened on Israel’s side if the initial strike triggered a wider war.
Reports of these discussions have caused considerable alarm in Washington and in a number of European capitals. Some western military experts have been quoted as saying that the window of opportunity for an Israeli air attack on Iran will close within two months, since the onset of winter would make such an assault more difficult.
Concern that Israel may decide to attack without giving the US prior warning is thought to be the main reason for the visit to Tel Aviv on October 3 of the US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta. His aim seems to have been to rein in the Israeli hawks.
Amos Harel of the Israeli daily Haaretz summed up Panetta’s message as follows: America is standing by Israel, but an uncoordinated Israeli strike on Iran could spark a regional war. The US will work to defend Israel, but Israel must behave responsibly.
At his joint press conference with Israel’s Defence Minister Ehud Barak, Panetta said: “The US is very concerned, and we will work together to do whatever is necessary to keep Iran from posing a threat to the region. But doing so depends on the countries working together.” He repeated the word ‘together’ several times. In other words, Israel should not act without an American green light.
In recent years, Israel has often threatened to attack Iran. Why has the subject been revived this time? Is Israel worried that Iran is close to acquiring the capability to manufacture a nuclear bomb? Most intelligence experts agree that Iran has not yet made a decision to build nuclear weapons. A more likely Israeli motive is its concern that the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany — the so-called P5+1 — may accept an Iranian offer of renewed talks.
Israel’s greatest fear is that the P5+1 will reach a compromise with Iran which would allow it to continue enriching uranium for civilian purposes. This might then lead in due course to the world agreeing to co-exist with a nuclear Iran. If that were to happen, Israel’s monopoly of nuclear weapons — a key asset in maintaining its regional military supremacy — would be lost. – GulfNews
China can sink the United States economically without firing a shot. Satan’s own pawns have maneuvered themselves into losing positions. Things will steadily go down hill. There is no climbing back out of this pit. All countries except for the E.U. and China will be bankrupt as this fall continues. Those two kingdoms will push against one another until war breaks out.
China has a right as one of the U.S. largest lenders to inspect its gold reserve. Not if, but when that happens, the real truth of this country being bankrupt will come to the light.
Long frustrated at the alleged job-killing impact of China’s forex regime, Democratic and Republican senators came together Tuesday to pass the bill, but it faces bleak prospects in the Republican-led House of Representatives.
“We are in trade war. But today we’re fighting back,” saidDemocratic Senator Sherrod Brown, one of the bill’s champions, defying the White House’s refusal to back the bill at a time of renewed global economic unease.
The proposal, powered by a tide of US voter frustration at a sour economy and high unemployment ahead of November 2012 elections, envisions retaliatory duties on Chinese exports if the value of the yuan is unfairly “misaligned”.
But Republican House Speaker John Boehner has signaled that he will not bring the legislation to a vote, calling it “dangerous” to economic relations.
China, accusing the US senators of scapegoating it during an election year, said the bill flouted World Trade Organization rules and would “seriously” harm relations between the world’s number one and number two economies.
“It is a serious breach of WTO rules, which cannot solve the US’s own economic and employment issues, and will… seriously interfere with Sino-US economic and trade relations,” said foreign ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu.
The official Xinhua news agency said “what the US Senate did planted a ticking time-bomb that may ignite a potential trade war between the world’s two largest economies.”
President Barack Obama last week accused China of “gaming the trade system” in a way that hurts the US economy, but declined to back the legislation and worried it could violate WTO rules.
Many in Washington agree that China keeps the yuan unfairly low against the dollar, giving its goods an edge of as much as 30 percent over similar US products, widening the trade deficit and costing American jobs.
But the measure’s opponents, stressing the bill’s toll on China ties, also warn that a rise in the yuan would boost manufacturing and jobs in countries such as Vietnam or Malaysia — and not in the United States. – Yahoo News
The European Union will be the first to reorganize the currency into an international medium, and then other countries will follow. The United States will have no choice, because sooner or later, the people of the USA are going to march on Fort Knox demanding an accounting of its contents. And Seraiah and Michael have both been inside the vault, and there is no gold belonging to the United States. What little is inside, it is being held in trust. With nothing backing the currency, and the USA setting its value by supply and demand, the dollar is really valueless.
If the Fed decides to try and fake the gold bars, and there is a metal similar to the weight of gold, simply drilling a few bars will tell the story.
With the nation smothered in debt, crippled by unemployment and financed by dollar bills backed by nothing more than the faith of the public, some conservatives are calling for a return to the gold standard.
At The Heritage Foundation’s Conference on a Stable Dollar last week, former Bush economic adviser and Federal Reserve Governor Larry Lindsey said the weight of history leaned toward gold.
The country moved to a fiat currency during the Civil War and then restored the gold standard years later, he noted, pointing out that this kind of back-and-forth is natural.
“I’m sure we’ll do it again,” Lindsey said. “Probably in the next 10 years.”
His reason for the reversal is both disturbing and unsurprising.
American families took on too much debt during the housing bubble. The government responded to the ensuing meltdown by leveraging up its own balance sheet by trillions of dollars. And the strain of navigating through the debt is more than the Fed’s Open Market Committee, which controls the money supply, can endure.
While Lindsey believes the Fed has done an admirable job, he doubts the 19-member committee can resolve the competing pressures better than a dollar pegged to gold.
“None of these guys are gods,” he said. “Nineteen men trying to adjudicate these demands will disappoint society.”
President Richard M. Nixon officially ended the gold standard more than 30 years ago. While the precious metal can foster a stable currency, it can also have downsides. A reliance on gold limits how much money could be flushed into the economy during a downturn, one of the key strategies for combating a recession.
Reintroducing the gold standard, though, has yet to catch fire with most Republican presidential candidates.
Most of them have called for the resignation of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, but only the former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza, Herman Cain, has endorsed the gold standard, according to the American Principles Project.
Still, Americans are increasingly enthralled by gold’s luster, even if some presidential candidates are not.
An August survey by Gallup Poll found that 34 percent of those questioned considered gold to be the best long-term investment, beating out real estate, stocks, conventional savings accounts and bonds.
It’s not that big a surprise, given that the precious metal has increased in recent years to more than $1,600 an ounce on Comex.
Gallup suggested two explanations for gold’s popularity: Either it’s caught in an investment bubble, or it reflects a “growing lack of confidence in the U.S. economy.”
Longtime gold standard advocate Lewis Lehrman said the current crisis could change the opinion of political leaders.
“Everything,” he said, “depends on the extent of the disintegration and the desperation of American voters.” – Politico.com
This ministry continues to sound the warning.
The rioting will soon invade the news as Americans vent their frustrations and feeling of being treated as cattle. Military intervention will occur and Marshal law will be declared as the citizens of the United States have lost their jobs and will then lose their liberties.
Do not oppose the government of the United States. Await Yahweh’s army to liberate Christ’s followers.
“If you are military or police anywhere in this world and you take up arms against your citizens you are fighting against your Creator. You will be putting your life in with Satan’s. He will eventually lose his life for eternity, but your life will be extinguished early by the LOZ forces that are going to take up the fight for the remnant, and you will not only lose your precious life, but any remembrance of you will also be extinguished as you are cast out of creation into the dark pit of oblivion. Be forewarned. Your future existence depends on your actions and you heart condition. Either choice you make, also know this: YOU CANNOT WIN OUT IN COMBATING THE LOZ.”
Citizen journalist Ringo captured this speaker at the Occupy Los Angeles camp a few days ago letting the cat out of the bag: After dismissing nonviolence as a dead end, he admits that for the Occupiers to achieve their goals, violence and bloodshed will be necessary:
Here’s a transcript, starting at 32 seconds into the video:
Occupy L.A. Speaker: “One of the speakers said the solution is nonviolent movement. No, my friend. I’ll give you two examples: French Revolution, and Indian so-called Revolution.
Gandhi, Gandhi today is, with respect to all of you, Gandhi today is a tumor that the ruling class is using constantly to mislead us. French Revolution made fundamental transformation. But it was bloody.
India, the result of Gandhi, is 600 million people living in maximum poverty.
So, ultimately, the bourgeoisie won’t go without violent means. Revolution! Yes, revolution that is led by the working class.
Long live revolution! Long live socialism!”
Incredibly, he praises the massacres of the French Revolution’s Reign of Terror rather than Gandhi’s nonviolent philosophy.
And the crowd laps it up.
Every single day, more videos emerge from the Occupy movement showing people saying things that, if they had been said by a Tea Partier, would have been front-page news for weeks and discredited the movement forever. But since it’s the Occupy Wall Street movement, darlings of the media and Democratic politicians, they get a pass. – The PJ Tatler
In other news…
The Occupy Wall Street protests and the rise of the Tea Party movement have both changed America, but you haven’t seen anything yet. You better buckle up, because America is getting very angry and as the economy continues to decline the economic protests are going to become much more frightening in the years ahead. Americans have become very accustomed to prosperity. Now that our prosperity is vanishing, people are starting to become very angry. The scary thing is that the vast majority of our population now lives in tightly congested urban areas. That makes the potential for mass rioting and civil unrest much greater. Back in 1910, 72 percent of Americans lived in rural areas. Today, only 16 percent of Americans live in rural areas. So what happens when you have millions of incredibly angry people crammed into tightly congested metropolitan areas? Well, we are about to find out.
Over the past 4 years, we have seen some unprecedented things happen in America. First we witnessed the rise of the Tea Party movement. Initially it pretty much was a true grassroots movement but now it has been mostly taken over by establishment Republicans. Now we are witnessing the rise of Occupy Wall Street. While there are some grassroots elements to it, the reality is that Occupy Wall Street seems to be pretty much controlled by the Democrats. In fact, one individual was recently told that “Ron Paul signs are not welcome here” at a recent protest.
So we have the left and the right fighting with each other like cats and dogs. The Tea Party movement and Occupy Wall Street both pretty much hate each other.
Meanwhile, those that control both political parties are enjoying the view.
But the people that are expressing their anger through protest movements such as Occupy Wall Street are not going to be content with the status quo for long.
The truth is that there is a lot of anger in the United States today, and that anger is rapidly growing. Millions upon millions of Americans are deeply upset about the economy and about our financial system.
Right now, protests by both the Tea Party movement and Occupy Wall Street have been mostly peaceful.
But that will not last indefinitely.
In fact, there are already signs that Occupy Wall Street protesters are not content with simply sitting in the park and banging on drums.
For example, protesters stormed the Senate Hart Office Building in Washington D.C. today. A handful of protesters were arrested.
Also, more than 50 protesters from the Occupy Boston movement were arrested today when they would not do what police were ordering them to do.
But most notable of all was the march to the homes of certain millionaires up in New York. Earlier today, Occupy Wall Street protesters marched to the homes of Jamie Dimon, David Koch, John Paulson, Howard Milstein, and Rupert Murdoch.
Needless to say, that is going to seriously upset some people.
The home protests were not spontaneous. The truth is that they were highly organized. Organizers such as SEIU board member Stephen Lerner have been talking about them for quite some time. In fact, you can hear him discussing plans for the upcoming protests at the homes of these millionaires back on October 3rd right here.
There is a lot about Occupy Wall Street that can be criticized (just check out this article), but one thing that Occupy Wall Street is actually doing right is that it is focusing on the role of money in politics.
The big financial powers spend hundreds of millions of dollars on political campaigns. Just check out this infographic. All of that money buys a lot of influence over the political process. If it didn’t, the big financial powers would not be spending that kind of money.
But the big financial powers are not just spending money on political campaigns. It has now come out that the big Wall Street banks can order New York City police officers just like they would order pizzas. In fact, over a million dollars is going to be spent this way just this year alone.
A recent article that was posted on counterpunch.org detailed how this works….
One of the ingenious methods that has remained below the public’s radar was started by the Rudy Giuliani administration in New York City in 1998. It’s called the Paid Detail Unit and it allows the New York Stock Exchange and Wall Street corporations, including those repeatedly charged with crimes, to order up a flank of New York’s finest with the ease of dialing the deli for a pastrami on rye.
The corporations pay an average of $37 an hour (no medical, no pension benefit, no overtime pay) for a member of the NYPD, with gun, handcuffs and the ability to arrest. The officer is indemnified by the taxpayer, not the corporation.
New York City gets a 10 percent administrative fee on top of the $37 per hour paid to the police. The City’s 2011 budget called for $1,184,000 in Paid Detail fees, meaning private corporations were paying wages of $11.8 million to police participating in the Paid Detail Unit. The program has more than doubled in revenue to the city since 2002.
So expect the big Wall Street banks to be sending in orders for huge numbers of New York City cops to protect them from the half-crazed Occupy Wall Street protesters.
Sadly, if recent poll numbers are any indication, the anger of the American people is not going to abate any time soon….
*According to Gallup, the percentage of Americans that lack confidence in U.S. banks is now at an all-time high of 36%.
*According to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll, 90 percent of Americans believe that the economy is performing poorly and approximately 80 percent of Americans believe that it is “difficult” to find a job right now.
*According to a recent Rasmussen survey, 48 percent of all Americans believe that reductions in government spending are “at least somewhat likely” to result in civil unrest inside the United States.
*Another recent survey found that 73 percent of all Americans believe that the nation is “on the wrong track”.
*According to a recent CBS News/New York Times poll, Congress has a disapproval rating of 82%.
*A recent Rasmussen survey found that 85 percent of Americans believe that members of Congress “are more interested in helping their own careers than in helping other people”, and that same survey found that 46 percent of the American people believe that most members of Congress are corrupt.
*According to a different Rasmussen survey, only 17 percent of all Americans now believe that the U.S. government has the consent of the governed.
*A recent Washington Post poll found that 78 percent of Americans are dissatisfied “with the way this country’s political system is working” and that only 26 percent of Americans now believe that the federal government can solve the economic problems that we are facing.
So what does all of that add up to?
It adds up to a U.S. population that is very frustrated and that is looking for outlets for that frustration.
As the U.S. economy continues to fall apart, that frustration is going to continue to rise.
What we are seeing all across America is only the beginning. We are going to see protest movements and explosions of anger that we can’t even imagine right now.
Dark days are coming for America.
You better buckle up. – EndofTheAmericanDream.com
“A plan of action: It is now wise if each of you have not already done so, to purchase dry products such as rice, beans, canned foods, bottled water, first aid kit and be prepared to remain in seclusion for a period of time. When things come to a head and break loose upon this Country, those things will not be available for a considerable length of time. The United States has a secret plan to reopen closed military bases for incarceration of those demonstrating against the United States government. For you own present welfare, please do not take part in any of the coming surges of unrest. An iron fist is what awaits those that rise up. Oppression of Satan’s unjust world is only the beginning of the nightmare awaiting mankind, but deliverance will come through Yahweh’s army of heavenly hosts. We are not blind to your dilemma or your cries of desperation. As things culminate into the mire of a feeling of desolation, Yahweh the Warrior will rise up and deliver Her people. Be patient and ever diligent towards your coming deliverance from Satan’s hell on earth.” Bebai, LOZ
“Wall Street got bailed out, and we all got sold out!”
From the streets of New York … to the nation’s capital … to the South (Mobile, Ala., Jacksonville, Fla.) and West (Portland, Ore.), Americans are frustrated and making their voices heard.
“Wealthy individuals who own giant corporations have bought off our Congress and bought off our government and, you know, the people no longer have a voice anymore,” one protester told CBS News.
The marchers come from all walks of life – young and old, male and female, hoping their lawmakers are listening.
“I think the message is obvious,” said Jesse Lagreca, 38. “The wealthiest one percent is taking advantage of working class people. They’ve been selling us faulty financial products, they’ve been taking huge bonuses while depending on society to bail them out.”
CBSMoneywatch’s Jill Schlesinger points out that, according to economists at Northeastern University, corporate profits represented 88 percent of the growth in real national income between the 2Q of 2009 and 4Q of 2010, during the same period aggregate wages and salaries accounted for just over 1 percent. “The money that companies have earned during the recovery has mostly stayed within corporate America,” writes Schlesinger, “and has not trickled down into higher wages, nor has it created enough jobs to put some of the 14 million unemployed Americans back to work.”
“Ninety-nine percent of the people need to be prospering, not just the top one percent,” said Michael Mulgrew, president of New York City’s United Federation of Teachers.
“Every community knows they’re hurting, what’s going on is wrong, and it’s time to stop this and make a difference, and do things that allow all people to prosper.”
On “The Early Show” Monday, Former Senator Russell Feingold, D-Wis., said of the protests spreading across the country, “I’m not just pleased about it, I’m excited about it.”
He reflected on the pro-labor demonstrations in Wisconsin earlier this year that were sparked by the governor’s fight to take away collective bargaining rights from public sector workers in his state. “We did it here, and I think this is going to happen all over the country,” Feingold said, “because people have been kicked when they are down, over and over again. You can only kick people so long before they react.
“This is time now for accountability, and this is a good way to show people how strongly we feel. The working people of this country have been treated very brutally and it has to change.” – CBSNews
Since early this year we have been sounding the warning of coming protests to the U.S. Next is rioting, and then martial law.
The rioting will soon invade the news as Americans vent their frustrations and feeling of being treated as cattle. Military intervention will occur and Martial Law will be declared as the citizens of the United States have lost their jobs and will then lose their liberties.
Do not take part in any rioting. Do not oppose the government of the United States. Await Yahweh’s army to liberate Christ’s followers.
The National Air and Space Museum in Washington was closed Saturday after anti-war demonstrators swarmed the building to protest a drone exhibit and security guards used pepper spray to repel them, sickening a number of protesters.
Smithsonian spokesman John Gibbons said a large group of demonstrators, estimated at 100 to 200 people, arrived at about 3 p.m. and tried to enter the National Mall museum. When a security guard stopped group members from entering, saying they could not bring in signs, he was apparently held by demonstrators, Gibbons said. A second guard who arrived used pepper spray on at least one person and the crowd dispersed, he added.
A number of groups have been demonstrating in the city in the past week. The group that arrived at the museum Saturday included individuals taking part in the October 2011 Stop the Machine demonstration in the city’s Freedom Plaza, which has an anti-war and anti-corporate greed message. The group also included protesters affiliated with Occupy D.C., a group modeled on the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City. Occupy D.C. has been holding marches and meetings in Washington’s McPherson Square.
David Swanson, 41, of Charlottesville, Va., said he was among dozens of people sickened by the pepper spray. He said he got sick even though he was outside the building when the spraying began.
“I began choking and vomiting and got a headache,” Swanson said.
Swanson, who says he has been part of the Freedom Plaza protest, says protesters were not looking to shut down the museum but to make a point about the massive military spending and the use of deadly drones. He said the security officers got aggressive after some protesters unfurled a protest banner inside.
He posted videos on his blog, warisacrime.org, that shows a security officer yelling “Get back” as pepper spray is apparently used. Several people fell to the ground outside in agony as others coughed, rubbed their eyes and fled the building.
Pete Piringer, a D.C. fire department spokesman, told The Associated Press on Saturday evening that medics treated or evaluated a dozen people at the scene but that no one was seriously hurt by the pepper spray.
Legba Carrefour, who is working with Occupy D.C., said a number of individuals joined the march to the museum following an afternoon meeting of the group.
Ann Wilcox, a lawyer working with Stop the Machine, said a 19-year-old woman from Madison, Wis., was arrested by police. She paid a fine and was released later Saturday. Wilcox said the protesters went to the Air and Space museum to demonstrate against a drone exhibit.
The museum has an exhibit, “Military Unmanned Aerial Vehicles,” that covers the history of unmanned aircraft and their current use as offensive weapons. Drones are often called the weapon of choice of the Obama administration, which quadrupled drone strikes against al-Qaida targets in Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas, up from less than 50 under the Bush administration to more than 220 in the past three years. - News-Sun
This will be such a crushing for not only the loss of life, but a huge hit to the U.S. economy as no money will be available to rebuild what is about to topple and be brought asunder.
“The world is destined for a one-world currency – one world rule. What that foreshadows is this: When this system of Satan’s is done away with, you that survive will have those things under the Righteous Rule of Christ Jesus and our Mother Israel. Satan will have his one try at making things work in a distorted mirrored reflection of what is soon to become a reality outside of his influence, because try as he might, no matter how diligent or hard he might, he will fail, and mankind cannot survive even itself without our Mother’s beneficial guidance. Don’t cling to what is destined to pass away. Look to the Kingdom of Christ Jesus. If you do, know that your desires – worldly desires – must change to reflect a new inheritance. “1 John 2:17 And the world with its lust is passing away, but the one who does God’s will remains forever.” What is the “lust”? It is for wealth, immoral sex, and a list of other things that are also contrary to what benefits your true existence that could be in harmony with our Mother’s Coming Divine Plan of the Ages and on into eternity. Will you be there – because the hourglass has almost emptied – or will you be a casualty of Satan’s dying world?” — Michael, Archangel of Yahweh’s Holy Angelic Forces
#1 A secret panel of government officials can now put American citizens on a “kill list”. A recent Reuters article explained that no law established this secret panel and that there are no laws which govern it….
There is no public record of the operations or decisions of the panel, which is a subset of the White House’s National Security Council, several current and former officials said. Neither is there any law establishing its existence or setting out the rules by which it is supposed to operate.
#2 It is on record that the federal government facilitated the sale of thousands upon thousands of very powerful guns to Mexican drug cartels. The Mexican government was never told about this operation. U.S. border agents have been shot with these guns, and these guns have been involved in dozens of murders already in Mexico. Mexican drug cartels will continue to kill people with these guns for many years to come. The Obama administration is working incredibly hard to cover up this scandal and the mainstream media is mostly ignoring the story.
#3 The other day, CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson shared with radio show host Laura Ingraham that Obama administration officials have yelled at her and cussed at her for aggressively investigating Operation Fast and Furious. This must have created a lot of waves, because now CBS News has now put her on lockdown and has made her unavailable for interviews.
#4 A host of other recent examples show that if you are associated with the mainstream media in any way and you make a “politically incorrect” comment, you will be given the boot so fast that it will make your head swim. For example, Hank Williams Jr. was recently booted off Monday Night Football simply because he compared Barack Obama to Hitler.
#5 At the current protests in New York City, police are beating people with clubs and shooting pepper spray in their faces. As the economic crisis gets even worse and protests spread and become more intense in future years, will all of America soon look like this?
#6 The United States has the highest incarceration rate in the world and the largest total prison population on the entire globe.
#7 The other day, a group of thieves stole a 50 foot long bridge in Pennsylvania. Yes, you read that correctly. They stole the entire bridge.
#8 Criminals seem willing to steal just about anything that is not bolted down these days. For example, a group of thieves has stolen more than 1,000 pigs from farms in Minnesota and Iowa in recent months.
#9 Class warfare is certainly rising to a new level in this nation. Recently, Roseanne Barr said that it would be a good idea for some bankers to “go to the reeducation camps”.
#10 Michael Moore is warning that the economic riots that we are starting to see around the country could potentially become violent in the future….
“The smart rich know they can only build the gate so high. And, and, sooner or later history proves that people when they’ve had enough aren’t going to take it anymore. And much better to deal with it nonviolently now, through the political system, than what could possibly happen in the future, which nobody wants to see”
#11 Have we become a socialist nation? At this point, nearly half of all Americans live in a household that receives some form of government benefits.
#12 From the time George Washington became president until January 1993, the United States government accumulated a national debt of $4.16 trillion. Since Barack Obama entered the White House, more than $4.2 trillion has been added to the national debt.

#15 There are more than 3 million reports of child abuse in the United States every single year.
#16 Horrifying brawls involving groups of young people are breaking out all over the nation. For example, check out this disturbing footage of a brawl that recently broke out during a football game in California.

#22 Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed antidepressants as children in Europe are.
#23 Former U.S. Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld recently stated that “extremism in Christianity” is a significant danger to the United States.
#24 More pornography is created in the United States than anywhere else on the entire globe. 89 percent is made in the U.S.A. and only 11 percent is made in the rest of the world.
#25 Vanderbilt University has ruled that five on-campus Christian groups have violated Vanderbilt’s non-discrimination policy because they will not allow people that do not believe in Christianity to become leaders in the groups.
#26 Globally, the United States is tied with the U.K. for the most hours of television watched per person each week.

#34 There are more reported rapes in the United States each year than anywhere else in the world.
#35 Totalitarian police states used to be ridiculed in this country, but now that has all changed. In fact, the “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign looks like it could have been pulled right out of an East German security handbook.
#36 According to a shocking FBI document obtained by Oath Keepers, the FBI definition of “suspicious activity” now includes making “extreme religious statements” and believing in “radical theology”.
#37 It is estimated that 500,000 babies that will be born this year will be sexually abused before they turn 18.
#38 In airports all over the country, the federal government is forcing large numbers of women and children to endure very offensive “enhanced pat-downs” during which their private parts are touched before they are allowed to get on to their flights.
#39 It was bad enough when the TSA was just abusing our families at the airports. Now, TSA “VIPR teams” are conducting approximately 8,000 “unannounced security screenings” a year at subway stations, bus terminals, ports and highway rest stops.
#40 Since 1973, approximately 50 million babies have been slaughtered in the United States before they were even born.
Some of the examples above may seem unrelated at first glance, but they really are not. The truth is that all of those examples illustrate the deep decay that has taken hold in this nation.
Sadly, hundreds more examples could easily be listed. This country is deeply sick, and “tweaking” a couple of things or electing the right politician is not going to cure us.

The rioting will soon invade the news as Americans vent their frustrations and feeling of being treated as cattle. Military intervention will occur and Marshal law will be declared as the citizens of the United States have lost their jobs and will then lose their liberties.

Senior Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah said he believes comments Obama made about “running Republicans out of town” could end up turning the protests ugly.
“We are going to have riots in this country because of what these people are doing,” he warned.
Hatch said Obama’s words coupled with by Teamsters leader Jimmy Hoffa’s Labor Day speech in which he called tea party members “sons of bitches” who should be “taken out” could incite violence.
“They are going to get people very angry and sooner or later people who basically are dependent upon the federal government and are about to be cut back, yeah, you are going to have lots of problems,” Hatch told reporters in Salt Lake City, one of many places that have seen protests.
Fellow Republican Sen. Rand Paul joined in the attack on the White House, calling Obama’s comments “inflammatory,” and saying the protesters reminded him of the Paris mob during the French Revolution.
“I see the president’s rhetoric of envy inflaming the public,” the Kentucky senator told Fox News’ Judge Andrew Napolitano.”
“I hope ultimately it doesn’t result in lawlessness where they say, ‘Gosh those nice iPads through the window should be mine and why don’t I throw a brick through the window to get them because rich people don’t deserve to have them when I can’t have one.’”
Obama said during his Thursday press conference that voters will “run Republicans out of town” if they refuse to pass his jobs bill. He then expressed sympathy for the Occupy Wall Street movement which started in lower Manhattan three weeks ago. He said it “expresses the frustrations that the American people feel.”
“We had the biggest financial crisis since the Great Depression, huge collateral damage all throughout the country, all across Main Street, and yet you’re still seeing some of the same folks who acted irresponsibly trying to fight efforts to crack down on abusive practices that got us into this problem in the first place,” Obama said.
“People are frustrated and the protesters are giving voice to a more broad-based frustration about how our financial system works.”
Biden likened the protests to the birth of the tea party. “What is the core of that protest?” he asked. “The core is: The bargain has been breached. The core is the American people do not think the system is fair, or on the level. That is the core is what you’re seeing with Wall Street.
“There’s a lot in common with the tea party,” he said at the Washington Ideas Forum. “The tea party started, why? TARP. They thought it was unfair.”
Biden is not the only one likening the movement to the tea party. The Los Angeles Times asked whether the movement is “a tea party for Democrats.” – NewsMax
Job 35:9 People cry out because of severe oppression; they shout for help from the arm of the mighty.
Job 35:12 There they cry out, but He does not answer, because of the pride of evil men.
Ezekiel 6:11 [ Lament over the Fall of Jerusalem ] “This is what the Lord GOD says: Clap your hands, stamp your feet, and cry out over all the evil abominations of the house of Israel, who will fall by the sword, famine, and plague.
Let it be known that ALL NATIONS are under Yahweh’s judgment and wrath.
[ The Coming of the Son of Man ] “Then there will be signs in the sun, moon, and stars; and there will be anguish on the earth among nations bewildered by the roaring sea and waves.”
You’ve seen the signs in the heavenly three, and that of the “roaring sea and waves” is representative of the people roaring, and the waves of discontent they ripple their governments with. As the financial collapse has effected all nations because all followed suit, so to will all feel the ripples of discontent as the domino effect takes place.
A special prayer service was at the Wall held this week, advertised in posters throughout the city of Jerusalem, attended by people from all over the country. It was led by the Rabbi of the city of Tzfat, Rav Shmuel Eliyahu, the son of the late Sephardic Chief Rabbi, Rav Mordechai Eliyahu.
The sound of the shofar was not heard during this particular service; rather, Rav Eliyahu asked the participants to cry out together to G-d instead because of the many difficulties besetting the Jewish people and the state of Israel at the start of this new year.
“We’re lifting our voices to G-d,” Rav Eliyahu explained. “We’re shouting out to him like a baby shouting out to his father. When a baby cries, his father understands him. His mother understands him. This how we shout out to G-d. Without talking.”
“We pray to G-d that the prayer will not just take place here at the Kotel [Western Wall, ed.] but in the actual Holy Temple, on the Temple Mount,” added Rav Eliyahu. “May it be rebuilt quickly and in our time. Amen.”
The rabbi also had a blessing for the people of Israel on the occasion of the new year.
“We want to wish everyone the strength of happiness, the strength of blessing. Chatima Tova to the entire people of Israel. May they be inscribed in the book of redemption, in the book of righteousness, in the book of blessing and good living.” – Israel National News
Like Satan, the U.S. is slowly withering away. They are over drawn in credibility, and short sighted in how their troops will achieve their objectives, and bankrupt in their nonexistent treasury that runs on false reports of value and fools gold, because the USA has very little in their possession. So, they are bankrupt in not only their defunct treasury holdings, but also morale values. A coupling effect that spells total self destruction. Satan will be forced to abandon his defunct USA for the European Union. But he resists, and that is why Mother will bring another pawn against the USA to completely break this camel’s back. The USA will have no choice but to join the EU and give up its sovereignty. That will cause internal strife in this country as the people turn on their betrayers. This sea of people (world wide) will be in turmoil until the end culminates with the impending Wrath of our Warrior Father, Yahweh.
Exodus 15:3 The LORD is a warrior; Yahweh is His name.
The analysis by the Census Bureau found the home ownership rate fell to 65.1 percent last year.
While that level remains the second highest decennial rate, analysts say the U.S. may never return to its mid-decade housing boom peak in which nearly 70 percent of occupied households were owned by their residents.
The reason: a longer-term economic reality of tighter credit, prolonged job losses and reduced government involvement.
Unemployed young adults are least likely to own, delaying first-time home purchases to live with Mom and Dad. Middle-aged adults 35-64, mostly home owners who were hit with mortgage foreclosures or bankruptcy after the housing bust in 2006, are at their lowest levels of ownership in decades.
Measured by race, the home ownership gap between whites and blacks is now at its widest since 1960, wiping out more than 40 years of gains.
‘The changes now taking place are mind-boggling: the housing market has completely crashed and attitudes toward housing are shifting from owning to renting,’ said Patrick Newport, economist with IHS Global Insight. “While 10 years ago owning a home was the American Dream, I’m not sure a lot of people still think that way.’
He noted the now-diminished roles of mortgage buyers Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which for decades at the urging of government helped enable loans to borrowers with poor credit, many of them minorities. In a shift, the Obama administration earlier this year said it would move from a long-time government focus on promoting home-ownership for all and instead steer people with low incomes toward renting where appropriate.
Congress has been considering whether to eliminate the federal tax deduction for home-mortgage interest, a popular incentive to home-buying that’s been in place since the early 20th century.
Given depressed housing values that could continue for at least another four to five years, it now makes more sense in most cases to rent than own, Newport said.
Nationwide, the home-ownership rate fell to 65.1 percent — or 76 million occupied housing units that were owned by their residents — from 66.2 percent in 2000. That drop-off of 1.1 percentage points is the largest since 1940, when home-ownership plummeted 4.2 percentage points during the Great Depression to a low of 43.6 percent.
Since 1940, the number of Americans owning homes had steadily increased in each decennial census due to a mostly booming economy, favourable tax laws and easier financing. The one exception had been 1980-1990, when ownership remained unchanged at 64.2 percent.
Broken down by state, 41 states saw declines in home ownership since 2000, many of them in the South and West where foreclosures were more common. They were led by South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi and North Carolina. On the other end of the scale, states with higher shares of vacation homes owned by affluent baby boomers saw small increases in ownership, including New Hampshire, Hawaii, Alaska and Vermont.
The U.S. housing crisis is far worse than the experience in most Western industrialised nations, which, unlike the U.S., did not foster markets of sub-prime lending to promote home-ownership. The U.S. continues to maintain a relatively high rate of home-ownership, surpassed only by countries such as Spain, Ireland, Australia and England. – Mail Online
