The Daily Beast: “The beginning of wisdom for Americans is to realize that the Arab world is tumbling through an earthquake, and that no mere policy can stop it, let alone shape it. At this stage, Washington can only prepare for the aftermath. The natural American impulse is to search for solutions, for policies that can prevail against these upheavals. But for years to come, Washington will have to lower its sights from solutions to more limited and defensive measures, in effect towards simply halting the jihadi menace. Even then, Americans should expect further jihadi triumphs.

Over time, however, Washington can cultivate new cooperative arrangements with the few stable and similarly inclined or threatened nations – Kurdistan, Israel, Jordan, Turkey and, shockingly, Iran. And if the new Egyptian rulers can be encouraged to stabilize and somewhat democratize their ancient land, Egyptians too would be a key to a better future.”

Opinion: The writer of the above is Leslie H. Gelb, a former correspondent for The New York Times and current President Emeritus and Board Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Gelb is Jewish.

Gelb gives us a look at secular progressive thinking and why the P5+1 are negotiating with Iran.  The CFR sees the United States as arrogant, self-indulgent, hypocritical, inattentive and unwilling or unable to engage in cross-cultural dialogue. We need to pay attention to what they’re saying.

This type of thinking will enable Iran to get the nuclear weapons toward which they are openly and feverishly working, and take the world to the wars of the end of this age.

The CFR is what Dinesh D’Souza classifies as one of the groups that think America is what is wrong with the world; that America built its power on the backs of the poor and indigent and it is time to give that wealth back. The CFR, like so many other progressive groups both Republican and Democrat, would also classify Bible-believing Christians as right wing fanatics.

Three thousand years ago another Jewish thinker, the wisest of all, had a different thought on the beginning of wisdom:

“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding” Proverbs 9:10. (His name was Solomon)

(see chapter 6, Bible Prophecy 101, front page of this website)

Zero Hedge: “Three months ago we discussed in detail the growing anti-dollar hegemony alliances that were building across the BRICS countries (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa). Their efforts at the time, to create a structure that would serve as an alternative to the IMF and the World Bank (which are dominated by the U.S. and the EU), appear to be nearing completion.

As AP reports,

  • Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff and Russia’s Vladimir Putin have discussed the creation of a development bank to promote growth in Brazil, India, China, Russia and South Africa.Rousseff received Putin in the presidential palace in Brasilia on Monday, a day before leaders of the five emerging BRICS nations meet in the northeastern city of Fortaleza
  • Rousseff told reporters the bank would top the summit’s agenda, adding she hoped the event would produce an agreement on the proposed institution
  • She said the five countries “are among the largest in the world and cannot content themselves in the middle of the 21st century with any kind of dependency.
  • Brazil and Russia also signed bilateral accords on air defense, gas and education.

Opinion: That Russia’s Czar is working to end the dollar’s reserve status with help from the BRICS nations fits with Bible prophecy for the end of the age. The coming global dictator will need to be in control of all forms of commerce in order to fulfill Revelation 13:16-17.

A change in the world reserve currency would be catastrophic, especially in the US, as nations would be forced to sell their dollar reserves in order to buy the agreed upon new global currency.

I have long thought that this event would be post-rapture and said so in the fiction chapter of our book, Antichrist: The Search For Amalek.

But we who live in the Church Age speculate on clues or signs. We have no Daniel or Isaiah or Ezekiel to point the way.

Jack Kinsella used to often sign off with Luke 21:28: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”

Twenty-first-century-energy-wars-300x198

Stratrisks: “Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ukraine, the East and South China Seas: wherever you look, the world is aflame with new or intensifying conflicts. At first glance, these upheavals appear to be independent events, driven by their own unique and idiosyncratic circumstances. But look more closely and they share several key characteristics — notably, a witch’s brew of ethnic, religious, and national antagonisms that have been stirred to the boiling point by a fixation on energy.

It should surprise no one that energy plays such a significant role in these conflicts.”

Opinion: Interesting how secular websites come so close to identifying the impetus for the wars of the end of the age. Often secular writers can identify the probable players as well as the motives but miss what was written in detail long ago.

It is equally interesting the world’s lone superpower is working hard to eliminate itself from the energy race by embracing a climate change hoax.

What could possibly cause the armies of China/South Asia (kings of the East - Revelation 16:12) to march a two hundred million man army 3000 miles to do battle?

What could enrage the armies of the far north (king of the north -Russia/Turkey/Iran) to join in with Egypt/North Africa (king of the South-Daniel 11:40)?

A powerful dictator taking control of the world’s energy supply.

Moments ago, in a lengthy interview given to French magazine Investir, none other than the governor of the French National Bank Christian Noyer and member of the

More Proof U.S. Temperature Data Is Manipulated

The New American: “Writing in his Real Science blog, Steven Goddard explained how he found out that NASA had altered U.S. temperature readings to show a warming trend where none existed: He compared graphs published on NASA’s website in 1999 to those available today. He even set up an animation of the two temperature graphs
