Crumpled Hundred Dollar Bill...Crumpled Hundred Dollar Bill --- Image by FusionPix/Corbis

The Telegraph: “In a radical report, the UN Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has said the system of currencies and capital rules which binds the world economy is not working properly, and was largely responsible for the financial and economic crises.

It added that the present system, under which the dollar acts as the world’s reserve currency , should be subject to a wholesale reconsideration.

Although a number of countries, including China and Russia, have suggested replacing the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, the UNCTAD report is the first time a major multinational institution has posited such a suggestion.”

Opinion: Russia and China led the move to end the dollar’s reign as world reserve currency in 2009. As global economies became overburdened with debt, the idea faded, leaving the US dollar the cleanest shirt in the dirty laundry bag, metaphorically speaking, and the US currency rallied for 5 years.

That the UN is starting up the rhetoric to replace the dollar is not surprising, now that China has filled its central bank with gold at bargain prices and the IMF has granted the renminbi reserve status.

As the tribulation approaches, we will likely see more and more volatility in global markets. The Third Seal Judgment of Revelation 6:5-6 ushers in the first economic collapse, which some Bible teachers think will be caused by the rapture of the Church.

Then, in Revelation 18:11, 19, the Apostle John tells us that in the last days of the Great Tribulation, the world’s monetary system will be centered in the city of Babylon and will crash and burn “in one hour” leaving the merchants of the earth weeping and wailing.

For now, central banks have sufficiently manipulated the world’s economic system by creating fiat money and artificially low interest rates, giving the illusion of financial stability.

Investors Op-Ed: “Nuclear Attack: After more than seven years in office, President Obama, who in 2007 promised to “eliminate North Korea’s nuclear weapons program” with “a strong international coalition,” now proposes shooting down their ICBMs. Reality detonates late.

The North Korean nuclear threat to the U.S. homeland was going to be a piece of cake for a charismatic genius like Barack Obama.

As president, the furthest Obama ever got with North Korea is a food aid agreement in 2012 that collapsed within a month when youthful dictator Kim Jong Un ordered a three-stage ballistic missile test. The president’s approach has since shifted from working to build that “strong international coalition” that will “eliminate North Korea’s nuclear weapons program” to … crossing his fingers.”

Opinion: North Korea is not mentioned in Prophecy except perhaps as a member of the kings of the East in Revelation 16:12 near the climax of the war of Armageddon.

But keep in mind that nowhere in the wars of the last days is an American superpower mentioned, and North Korea already has two satellites orbiting the earth.

The hermit kingdom’s most dangerous threat to its perceived enemies, South Korea and the US is an EMP.

So after scrapping missile defense systems in Europe and cutting billions from missile defense here at home, the president has finally come up with a new plan to protect us:

mrz042816_colorThe Weekly Standard: Transgender ‘bathroom use’ is the new ‘gay marriage’.

You will recall that back in the dark, benighted days of our Republic—say, the year 2011, when Barack Obama believed that gay marriage should never be legalized—the people who promoted gay marriage insisted that it could never lead to other societal revolutions.

Well, that didn’t take long. The line from gay marriage to trans bathrooms is about as straight as they come. Partly this is the logical philosophical progression of worldview that sees identity as wholly plastic. Partly it’s the result of the creation of a grievance-industrial complex which now needs endless culture war to feed its maw.”

Opinion: I have to admit being somewhat caught off-guard, I thought that the next battle would be over gays demanding marriage in churches.

Donald Trump wants everyone to use the bathroom “that they feel is appropriate” and don’t even think about a gender-neutral bathroom that, according to the presumptive Republican nominee, “would be discriminatory in a certain way“.

Strap yourself in, Trump’s popularity is soaring because the world loves its own, John 15:19.
