Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: “Global Jihad: The terrorist shooting near Canada’s Parliament isn’t the act of a “lone wolf,” as the media have reported. It’s part of a broader conspiracy — a jihadist insurrection against North America.”

Opinion: Prime Minister Harper “In the days to come, we will learn more about the terrorist and any accomplices he may have had, but this week’s events are a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terrorist attacks we have seen elsewhere in the world,” Harper said. “Let there be no misunderstanding: We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated.”

YNet News: “Jerusalem is not the only city under attack by terrorists; other cities across the world are, as well. But the offensive in Jerusalem is supported by the chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Abu Mazen, who glorifies the murderers and embraces the group they belong to – Hamas,” said Netanyahu.

Netanyahu used the occasion to remind world powers of the threat posed by terrorism. “Against these acts we face international flaccidity. But there is no such weakness here. We will stand strong for our rights and our obligations to protect our capital.”

Opinion: Abu Mazen, is none other than the PA’s chief Edomite, Mahmoud Abbas. Mazen is the name he used when he w as the chief financier of the 1971 Olympic massacre of 11 Israeli athletes.

The Palestinians celebrated the death of a Jewish infant girl in Jerusalem on Wednesday. A Palestinian motorist with a history of anti-Israel violence slammed his car into a crowded train station in Jerusalem on Wednesday, killing a three-month-old baby girl and wounding eight people in what police called a terror attack.

The baby-killers were upset over Jews daring to buy houses in certain parts of Jerusalem called Judenrein, or cleansed of Jews.

SCHOOL%20BUS-AP%20PHOTO-cropCNS News: “The Freedom From Religion Foundation, an atheist group, is planning to hand out in several Florida public high schools a pamphlet that features an illustration on its cover depicting a humanized Bible sexually assaulting a young woman.

The pamphlet is entitled: “An X-Rated Book: Sex and Obscenity in the Bible.”

The front cover of the small purple booklet is illustrated with a cartoon Bible–which has arms, legs, face and drooling mouth–sexually assaulting a screaming woman as she tries to escape its grasp.”

Opinion: Romans 14:11 “For it is written, As I live, said the Lord, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to God.”

I can’t help but wonder what it will be like when that day comes. Will there be remorse in the eyes of those who deny Him or will there be fear and denial? There will be no excuses, no turning back and no pardon.

Those who would persecute Him will most certainly persecute us.

Jesus tells us we are to pray for them. (Matthew 5:44).

Currency-Wars-Evolve-With-Goal-of-Avoiding-Deflation-300x240

Stratrisks: “Currency wars are back, though this time the goal is to steal inflation, not growth.

Weak price growth is stifling economies from the euro region to Israel and Japan. Eight of the 10 currencies with the biggest forecasted declines through 2015 are from nations that are either in deflation or pursuing policies that weaken their exchange rates, data compiled by Bloomberg show.

“This beggar-thy-neighbor policy is not about rebalancing, not about growth,” David Bloom, the global head of currency strategy at London-based HSBC Holdings Plc, which does business in 74 countries and territories, said in an Oct. 17 interview. “This is about deflation, exporting your deflationary problems to someone else.”

Opinion: This is really important, but first we need some definitions:

  • Inflation – A general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.
  • Deflation – A general decline in prices, often caused by a reduction in the supply of money or credit.
  • Hyperinflation – Price increases are so out of control that the concept of inflation is meaningless.

Deflation then is the opposite of inflation. Deflation has the side effect of increased unemployment since there is a lower level of demand in the economy for goods and services, which can lead to an economic depression. Central banks attempt to stop severe deflation, along with severe inflation, in an attempt to keep the excessive drop in prices to a minimum.

Oil prices are falling partly due to early deflation. While that may feel good when you get gas, it is a very bad sign for the economy.

The Federal Reserve has been printing money to prop up the economy for 7 years. As a result interest rates have been kept from rising, but deflation worries persist. Picture holding a beach ball underwater and taking your hands away, it pops to the surface.

Currency manipulation or exporting deflation to some other nation is the equivalent of kicking the can down the road. Severe prolonged deflation can cause a collapse of a nations currency which then results in rapid hyperinflation.

And hyperinflation is what I believe the rider on the Black Horse (Revelation 6:5-6) is all about.

We are not there, yet – because “we” are still here.

World Net Daily: “Britain’s official education inspector has informed an independent Christian school that it is out of step with “British values” prescribed by the government and must invite someone from another faith, such as a Muslim imam, to lead assemblies or it risks being closed.

The threat comes amid a series of new school inspections imposed by the government in response to a “Trojan horse” scandal in which several public schools in Birmingham, England, were taken over by Muslim managers who imposed Islamic education standards.

The U.K.’s Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills, known as Ofsted, then established new rules requiring the active promotion of “British values” such as tolerance.”

Investors Business Daily Op-Ed: Inflation: “We’ve chastised President Obama many times for failing to live up to promises he made when running for the office. So in fairness, we want to credit him for fulfilling one of them: his pledge to raise energy costs.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the energy price index has been higher than the overall Consumer Price Index since December 2010 — 46 straight months and counting.”

Opinion: The president waged a war on coal and fossil fuels. He wants 80 percent of U.S. electricity to come from renewable energy sources by 2035 and has already invested billions of taxpayer dollars, created more than 700 government programs, and populated his administration with environmental wackos and Wall Street bankers to ensure his success.

What is interesting is that if the recent drop in global oil prices continues, wind and solar energy sources will become even less attractive, making  skyrocketing energy prices even more ridiculous.
