Fox News: “You can inject one under your skin and no one will ever notice. Using short-range radio frequency identification (RFID) signals, it can transmit your identity as you pass through a security checkpoint or walk into a football stadium. It can help you buy groceries at Wal-Mart. In a worst-case scenario – if you are kidnapped in a foreign country, for example – it could save your life.

Microchip implants like the ones pet owners use to track their dogs and cats could become commonplace in humans in the next decade. Experts are divided on whether they’re appropriate for people, but the implants could offer several advantages. For soldiers and journalists in war zones, an implant could be the difference between life and death. A tracker could also help law enforcement quickly locate a kidnapped child.

Chip implants could:

  • Track the activities of felons
  • Manage farm animals
  • Unlock their homes or cars, gain access to a building
  • If children were chipped, teachers could take attendance in the classroom
  • Police could track cars and read data without needing to scan license plates
  • Locate abducted children

Opinion: Oh and just one more … control the ability of a person to buy and sell, Revelation 13:16-17.

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 that while both nations are eager to move away from a US Dollar reserve currency, neither is yet able to provide an alternative.

This changed in late June when first Gazprom’s CFO announced the gas giant was ready to settle China contracts in Yuan or Rubles, and at the same time the People’s Bank of China announced that its Assistant Governor Jin Qi and Russian central bank Deputy Chairman Dmitry Skobelkin held a meeting in which they discussed cooperating on project and trade financing using local currencies. The meeting discussed cooperation in bank card, insurance and financial supervision sectors.

And yet, while both sides declared their operational readiness and eagerness to bypass the dollar entirely, such plans remained purely in the arena of monetary foreplay and the long awaited first shot across the Petrodollar bow was absent.”


Opinion: What is the Petro dollar?

In 1971 Richard Nixon was forced to close the gold window, taking the U.S. off the gold standard and setting into motion a massive devaluation of the U.S. dollar. In an effort to prop up the value of the dollar, Nixon negotiated a deal with Saudi Arabia that in exchange for arms and protection they would denominate all future oil sales in U.S. dollars. Subsequently, the other OPEC countries agreed to similar deals thus ensuring a global demand for U.S. dollars and allowing the U.S. to export some of its inflation.

Since these dollars did not circulate within the country they were not part of the normal money supply. Economists felt another word was necessary to describe the dollars received by petroleum exporting countries (OPEC) in exchange for oil, so the term petrodollar was coined by Georgetown University economics professor, Ibrahim Oweiss.

Because the United States was the largest producer and consumer of oil in the world, the world oil market had been priced in US dollars since the end of World War II.

Russia’s Gazprom was exempt from US/EU sanctions imposed on Putin’s Russia principally because the EU gets 30% of its natural gas from the Russian company.

With Gazprom’s moves to accept payment in euros and yuan (renminbi), 90% of Gazprom clients have “de-dollarized”, setting the stage for the day it finally would push the button to skip the dollar entirely. Which it just did.

The move away from the dollar as world reserve currency is not an overnight event but like a glacier, the move to replace the greenback is slow and powerful.

ISIS-gunman-in-plaza-reutersBreitbart: “Democrats are more afraid of global warming than the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorists, according to a new Pew Research Center poll.

The poll shows that 68 percent of Democrats believe that global climate change is a major threat to the United States, compared to just 25 percent of Republicans.

In contrast, 65 percent of Democrats believe that ISIS is a major threat, three points less than climate change. Seventy-eight percent of Republicans cited ISIS as a major threat – + a partisan difference of 13 points.

Opinion: Now we know why there is no plan to stop ISIS.

And who do the Democrats think should monitor emissions? Why the United Nations, of course, that America-hating body to which the Obama administration has entrusted the internet and gun control.

If the president isn’t campaigning to becoming the first president of the UN when his term expires, I will be amazed.

No Strategy But Thank God Others Do

Joel Rosenberg: The President of the United States has absolutely no idea what he is doing in the Middle East. Mr. Obama apparently has plenty of time to play golf. Yet he refuses to invest the time and energy necessary to come up with a plan to stop — much less defeat — ISIS, despite the genocidal attacks their forces

Obama Pursuing Climate Accord in Lieu of Treaty

The New York Times: “The Obama administration is working to forge a sweeping international climate change agreement to compel nations to cut their planet-warming fossil fuel emissions, but without ratification from Congress. In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with

CFR Proposes That "Central Banks Should Hand Consumers Cash Directly"

Zero Hedge: “… A broad-based tax cut, for example, accommodated by a program of open-market purchases to alleviate any tendency for interest rates to increase, would almost certainly be an effective stimulant to consumption and hence to prices. Even if households decided not to increase consumption but instead re-balanced their portfolios by using their extra
