Zero Hedge: “The global de-dollarization trend continues as it appears the UK’s move to join the China-led Asian Infrastructure Development Bank has indeed shown other US “allies” that spurning Washington’s advice is actually acceptable and concerns about the institution’s “standards” may simply be a diversion aimed at undermining China’s attempt to exercise more influence in its own backyard. Here’s more from the NY Times:

 Ignoring direct pleas from the Obama administration, Europe’s biggest economies have declared their desire to become founding members of a new Chinese-led Asian investment bank that the United States views as a rival to the World Bank and other institutions set up at the height of American power after World War II.

The announcement on Tuesday by Germany, France and Italy that they would follow Britain and join the Chinese-led venture delivered a stinging rebuke to Washington from some of its closest allies. It also called into question whether the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, which grew out of a multination conference in Bretton Woods, N.H., in 1944 and established an economic pecking order that lasted 70 years, will find their influence diminished.”

dedollar

Opinion: De-dollarization is a very scary word that very few people are paying attention to since the dollar has been on a strong run since the end of 2010.

It means that the US dollar is seen by the rest of the world as the cleanest shirt in the dirty laundry bag. If the US dollar was rising because of a strong US economy there would no reason for the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates at 0%.

But this past Tuesday, that is precisely what the Fed did.

The US economy is being held back because of debt. Picture a ship trying to move forward but the captain forgot to lift the giant anchor.

The fact that the economy is moving up at all, is testimony to American capitalism, ingenuity and $4 trillion in newly manufactured US dollars.

So if China, Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa (BRICS) not to mention South Korea, continue losing faith in the dollar due to horrendous mismanagement, the feasibility of the dollar as world reserve currency could end.

And that fits the scenario spoken by John: the Black Horse of Revelation 6:5-6.

eclipse

Breaking Israel News: “This Friday’s exceedingly rare solar eclipse has an astronomical relationship to the fateful 1492 Blood Moon, according to Root Source, in their second major revelation in recent days.

“Friday’s total solar eclipse is a direct descendant of an earlier eclipse that touched land in the New World during the middle of the 1492 Alhambra decree that ordered the expulsion of the Jews from Spain,” Root Source co-founder Bob O’Dell told Breaking Israel News.

Eclipses run in families, referred to by NASA as the saros cycle, which repeat every 18 years and 11 days. Root Source traced this Friday’s unusual eclipse directly to an eclipse that took place in April 1492.

“For the earth will be as full of the knowledge of the LORD as the sea is filled with water.” (Isaiah 11:9)”
Opinion: “Warning Will Rogers”, extreme skepticism follows even the mention of Bible prophecy!

congratsThe McClatchy Report: “UK Prime Minister David Cameron tweeted his congrats to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his victory Tuesday. So did Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. And Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who said “ Israel has no greater friend than Canada.”

But not U.S. President Barack Obama.

Obama’s delay led some to question whether Obama was just snubbing Netanyahu after a weeks-long feud over a potential nuclear deal with Iran.”

Opinion: Interesting that President Obama had the time to congratulate:

  • Vladimir Putin, Russia – 2012
  • Mohamed Morsi,  Egypt – 2012 (now in prison)
  • Hassan Rouhani, Iran – 2013
  • Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Turkey 2014

Josh Earnest used an excuse about the president waiting until a government is formed but immediately turned the conversation to Netanyahu’s pre-election promises:

  1. No Palestinian state
  2. No division of Jerusalem
  3. More building in East Jerusalem

Earnest: “It has been the policy of the United States for more than 20 years that a two-state solution is the goal of resolving the conflict between the Israelis and the Palestinian people,” he said. “And that two-state solution has been pursuit of a democratic and Jewish state of Israel living side by side in peace and security with an independent and sovereign Palestinian state. That has been the policy of the United States under both Democratic and Republican presidents.”

And Both Democrat and Republican presidents have been defying a sovereign God for more than 20 years:

  • Genesis 12:3 “I will bless those who bless you and whoever curses you I will curse …”
  • Joel 3:1-2 “I will gather all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. There I will put them on trial for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel, because they scattered my people among the nations and divided up my land.”

The judgment for those who defy God’s command:

Joel 3:20-21 “Judah will be inhabited for ever and Jerusalem through all generations. Shall I leave their innocent blood unavenged? No, I will not”

Zechariah 12:3 “Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of drunkenness to all the surrounding peoples, when they lay siege against Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall happen in that day that I will make Jerusalem a very heavy stone for all peoples; all who would heave it away will surely be cut in pieces, though all nations of the earth are gathered against it.”
