Breitbart: “The European Union and United States government-funded Global Carbon Project (GCP) released their latest Atlas that tracks annual CO2 emissions by 196 countries in cooperation with Sunday’s People’s Climate March and President Obama’s keynote speech at the United Nations Global Climate Summit Tuesday.

The GCP report warns that man-made global warming is accelerating and names China as the chief culprit. However, GCP blames consumption in Europe and the United States for high levels of CO2 emissions and supports continued UN exemptions from enforcement for China.”

Opinion: Is there any better job for a retired ideologically progressive-left US President than becoming the first president of the UN?

Excerpt from Antichrist: The Search For AmalekPresident Obama, nearing the end of eight tumultuous years, was ready for a new job, and as fate would have it, one was about to be offered to him. Ban Ki Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations, was ready to announce his retirement to be effective at the end of his term on December 31, 2016.

The world was ready for new leadership, and Ban, nearing seventy-two, was exhausted. The UN vacancy, if accepted, would be a perfect fit for the internationally popular US president.”

gogYahoo News: “MOSCOW (Reuters) – Russian courts could get the green light to seize foreign assets on Russian territory under a draft law intended as a response to Western sanctions over the Ukraine crisis.

The draft, which was submitted to parliament on Wednesday by a pro-Kremlin deputy, would also allow state compensation for an individual whose property is seized in foreign jurisdictions.”

Opinion: The Empire strikes back. We have been saying for years that the absence of US leadership will be open season for despots. Every day a new piece of the prophetic puzzle fits firmly in place.

Ezekiel 38:2 calls for a prince from the land of Magog from the far north, to rise in the last days. Magog was the second of the seven sons of Japheth mentioned in the Table of Nations in Genesis 10.

The prince will have such power that he will call for and lead a gigantic army (Ezekiel 38:1-6) to invade tiny Israel after it is finally dwelling in peace and safety (Ezekiel 38:11). Ezekiel 3:13 tells us that Gog is after plunder or great wealth. Bible scholars have debated for millennia as to what it could be.

Some say it is Solomon’s gold that has never been recovered, others say it could be livestock and goods, but the one commodity that is causing tremendous turmoil between Russia and Europe today, is the same commodity that recently made the deal of the century between Russia and China – natural gas and oil.

But while Israel recently discovered a gigantic gas reserve, there has been little or no oil found, yet.

And Genesis 49:25 has not been fulfilled, yet, either.

Zero Hedge: “The suppression of gold prices is essential at all costs to the Anglo-American banking interests. The saber rattling and attempts to lure Russia and China into military conflict are about who controls the financial world.”

Opinion: It has been a curious phenomenon to me seeing gold and silver prices decline over the past 3 years, while the central banks of the US, Japan, and more recently the EU, print new (fiat) money to escape a never-ending financial crisis.

Typically, adding counterfeit money to any economy will devalue existing money, causing inflation and the price of precious metals and interest rates to rise.

In an effort to keep interest rates low, central bankers have created trillions in new money to buy massive amounts of bonds that have held interest rates down while negative counter-effects have been muted.

My (Conspiracy) Theory: Suppose that at the same time they have been buying up bonds, central banks sold short massive amounts of gold to keep the price from rising out of control. (sold gold contracts they don’t own with the intention of buying it back in the future).

Rising gold prices are clear evidence of a paper money problem and potential collapse. By suppressing gold, financial markets would be fooled into complacency that the Central Bank plan of money-printing was actually a good thing and that it would eventually solve the financial crisis.

The US dollar would then rise (which it just did) and the world reserve currency and global economy would stablize.

Fact: Russia and China, seizing an opportunity to buy precious metals cheep and weaken the US superpower, began buying gold quietly as evidenced by the charts above and below.

In the fiction chapter of our  book Antichrist: The Search For Amalek, we theorized a move by Russia and China to dethrone the US dollar and replace it with the renminbi as part of a basket of currencies:

Excerpt: “As the top-secret meeting got under way, John Brennan had disturbing news to share. He informed the group that there was urgent intel from our people on the ground in the Far East. China was about to make a move with support from Japan, Russia, and the European Union to dump the dollar as the world reserve currency.

They planned to institute the renminbi, either alone or as part of a basket of currencies called Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), which would include the euro and the yen. Brennan told the cabinet that China had been buying large amounts of gold for the past five years in an effort to build global confidence in the Chinese currency. Their aim was to make the renminbi the de facto reserve currency and to increase global influence.”

Disclaimer: This theory is in no way an encouragement to go out and buy gold. If I am correct, there is no way to know when central bankers will buy-in their short positions.

Europe Goes "All In": Will Sanction Rosneft, Gazprom Neft And Transneft

Zero Hedge: “Until this moment, the main reason why everyone mostly dismissed Europe’s sanctions against Russia is that despite all its pompous rhetoric, Europe consistently refused to hit Russia where it would hurt: its energy titans Gazprom, Rosneft And Transfneft. The reason is simple: by imposing sanctions on these core energy exporters, Europe would directly

The Nail In The Petrodollar Coffin: Gazprom Begins Accepting Payment For Oil In Ruble, Yuan

Zero Hedge: “Several months ago, when Russia announced the much anticipated “Holy Grail” energy deal with China, some were disappointed that despite this symbolic agreement meant to break the petrodollar’s stranglehold on the rest of the world, neither Russia nor China announced payment terms to be in anything but dollars. In doing so they admitted
