Overview -- The Last Days

Early in earth’s history God created spiritual individuals to live on earth. We are not told how long life on earth was peaceful and pleasing to God. However, at some time, an archangel named Lucifer (as well as many other names) led a rebellion against God. We are told that he was of such a powerful-personality and leadership that he caused one third of all of the spiritual beings (you may call them angels) to decide to follow and worship him as God. This is described in Rev 12:4. [There, "stars" of heaven are sometimes called the "sons of God". A better translation would be “beings created by God.]

Describing the time before the rebellion, you will hear most preachers read Gen 1:1-2 and say, “In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth and the earth was void and without form.” That is not what the ancient Hebrew manuscripts say! It is a verse preachers hear in a seminary lecture on Gen 1:1 through Gen 2:1. That sounds like God wanted to make an earth, so he wadded up a bunch of rocks and clay and liquid of some sort and formed a mushy, useless object. Think a minute. Did God ever create anything that did not have a well-considered shape? Quick answer – NO!

Look back at Gen 1:1 in the ancient Hebrew. Genesis 1:1 "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." There, two bodies are mentioned; the heaven and the earth. It simply stated a fact and left the time factor out. The verse did not say when they were created. Genesis- 1:2 "And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep.." This is the English translation. The original Hebrew text reads "became without form...". The correct Hebrew translation from the Massoretic Hebrew text for the words, "without form" is "tohu-va bohu." “became without form.” So we see that the earth was not "created without form", but it "became [tohu] without form and void". This was God’s action following Satan’s rebellion – which caused a third of God’s children to follow him. From that time to today, there has been sin, violence, and unhappiness on earth.

In case that someone says, “Oh that can’t be! Please note the following: The verb in this sentence (Gen 1:2) is “hä-yä” and means: to become or to come to pass. [TWOT Ref: 491 and Strong’s H1961] [Hebrew word: הָיָה ] So, the earth was in excellent shape/condition before the voiding action took place. Why was the earth reformed? Answer: To wipe out the sinful conditions caused by the beings following Satan and starting a new system of life on the planet -- flesh beings. Again, why a reformed earth? Job 14:4 reminds us "Who can bring a clean [thing] out of an unclean? not one. No one!"

God announced that as flesh-life on His new earth continues "many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none of the wicked shall understand: but the wise (in God's Word) shall understand." [Daniel 12:10] The bad times on earth will grow worse with time.

Five months before Christ returns to earth, Fallen Angels (Satan’s assigned supernatural-rulers of major land-masses of the earth) will appear on this planet. [In a figure-of-speech we are told: "And they (have) tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months." (Revelation 9:10)] [Back in verse five, God allowed them to work as scorpion work, to paralyze their prey and consume them.] They will have political rule over all who live on earth at that time.

Then, sometime close to the Last Day, Satan will be released to return to earth. ["And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Sa'-tan, which deceived the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels (soon made national rulers) were cast out with him." (Revelation 12:9)] Satan will rule his religious organization and a world-wide political organization for the last half of a five-month period, roughly two and one half months.

He will make most of the world's population believe he is the true Christ. He wants to be the Antichrist. In the Greek sense of the word, "Anti" means "in place of,” not “against.” “Anti” ([G0473], ἀντί , is a preposition meaning: instead of or in place of something .) Satan will tell his followers he is the true Christ and any others professing to be so are liars! This means he will not have a long pointed beard, be in a tight red outfit, have a tail, and lean on a pitchfork.

Satan is supernatural. He will perform acts that appear to be happenings that only the true Christ can produce. He will claim to be working to remove all hardship and misery from his followers. To the world's masses it will appear he is making the joyful, helpful changes he promised.

Then, after Satan is on earth 2 ½ months The true Christ will return to earth. The last "earth-ruled" day is over. The Antichrist will once more be bound and put away for a Millennium. God wins!

Teaching God’s Word and discipline is the purpose of the Millennium. Because of the great apostasy there will be more total lives saved out of the Millennium than during any other of earth’s days.

At the end of the Millennium Satan is released for a final short time. This is long enough for his remaining followers to join him. Then, poof! As Rev 19:20 tells us, “the false prophet that wrought miracles … deceived … (and) those have received the mark of the beast (Satan’s remaining followers)(will be) both … cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." In an instant they will be gone – blotted out – soul and spirit -- forever!

II -- Through prophesy -- Bible Prophecy Does Not Fail, Proving the Bible's Message is True!

Proof that the Bible/God’s Word is 100% true is found in the fact that all Bible prophecy due to have come true by this date has definitely occurred. Throughout history there have been individuals who claimed to be able to predict the future. A few have had a large percent of their predictions come true. However, none of these individuals was correct in all that they said. Bible prophecy due to have come true before this calendar date has happened – 100% so! If you wish to search for the record of someone making an accurate string of predictions, it is probably the easiest for you to make a “right/wrong” determination by considering world events.

To prove the point that no human is able to make 100%-accurate predictions, look at three famous people who are well known for predicting the future – Nostradamus, Jean Dixon (1960s and more), and Vincent Lopez (1945):

We have all heard of Nostradamus. His work is not understandable. If ten people read his words there are ten different opinions as to the meaning. So, let’s examine other prophets. Out of many published prophecies, very few have had a large percentage of accurate forecasts. Here are two who have “guessed” quite a few future “happenings”:

Jean Dixon – Her work is described in the book "A Gift of Prophecy, The Phenomenal Jean Dixon" by Ruth Montgomery, published in 1965. Jean had a vision that on February 5, 1962, a child was born in the Middle East, who would transform the world by year 2000, creating a unifying world religion, and bringing world peace. She saw a cross growing above this man, until it covered the whole earth. None of this came into being.

OK, one more! Vincent Lopez wrote "What's Ahead? A Musician's Prophecies of World Events." It was published in 1944. Some of the predictions in this book were accurate:
--Japan defeated in 1945.
--Russia would not fight against Japan in World War 2.
--India gaining independence in 1947-48.
Some of the misses were:
--By 1980, Japan, China, Russia and India "lined up together".
--A large meteor hits Europe in 1963, causing a major disaster.
--Retirement in the U.S. will usually be at age 45.
--There will be world prosperity!

Satan’s top-ranked Fallen Angels work to establish a One World Religion

There shall arise false christs and false prophets. Many of them will display great wonders to the world. Matt 24:24 tells us how powerful their presentations will be. That verse warns us “If it were possible to fool the very elect” – what? – they would do so! The “very elect” means those people “well trained” in God’s Word. “If” lets us know that a small percent of Christians will not be “taken in” by any impressive “wonders”. You can read these words in the KJV. Modern RSV editors weakened the meaning of the verse. They dropped an important word – “very” in the phrase “the very elect”!

What the individual can do
For decades a person surely has heard a large majority of people around them say one of two things. It was either, “All of this talk about ‘the Last Days’ has been heard since early Bible times and I have more to think about than that!” Or, one hears: “The Bible says trust in God and you will never suffer in the Last Days!”

True, the Bible does talk about the Last Days. It gives comfort that if you prepare for the Last Days and they appear while you are in the flesh on earth, you will live through it easier than do others. The Bible tells you to “prepare” and be alert for signs of the beginning of this period in world history.

Some people are heard to say, “When the Last Days appear on earth, believers in God will follow a road to safety. Others will travel the road to pain and suffering.” [Wow! Two paths allowed to exist by world rulers? I don’t think so!] Those speakers will continue, “That future life can be explained like a game of baseball! When those terrible times come, Non-believers-in-God will hit the ball and run to a first base –a base closer than normal and slightly to the Left. Believers will hit the ball and run to a first base at the normal distance and slightly to the Right! Non-Believers will easily get “picked off base” for an “out”.

There is big trouble with that line of thinking. In real baseball there is only one first base, one second base, one third base, and one home plate -- where the action begins. Forget the baseball analogy. Prepare for the five months or so of the End Times when Satan and his Enforcers (supernatural Fallen Angels) walk on earth.

Destruction of Our National Economy

The direction Congress is moving in 2010 was predicted in startling detail almost two decades ago by a famous Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman. He showed how, facing massive deficits, the U.S. government would dramatically increase the money supply; why foreign countries would stop buying our debt; how the Fed would start buying our Treasury bills; and why this would call cause massive inflation. He even predicted that our officials would claim inflation was no problem at all. Since 20 Sept 2009, the U.S. money supply has doubled. The press and TV news has not demanded an answer to the question, "Where is all of this money coming from?" Friedman even warned that such inflation could "destroy our country”.

One World Religion
MELBOURNE, 11 Dec 2009 -- reports in an address to a gathering that was sponsored by the World Parliament of Religions (PWR) last Friday, former US President Jimmy Carter has once again blamed traditional religion, particularly Southern Baptists and Roman Catholics, for "creating an environment where violations against women are justified." It is a theme that Carter has successfully used to garner media attention for several years. Although in a July column in The Observer Carter admits to "not having training in religion or theology." Still, he has a large following.

Ill-mannered Young People

Eight arrested in attack at UC Berkeley chancellor's home (December 12, 2009) In custody early that morning were eight people after they converged on UC Berkeley Chancellor Robert Birgeneau's on-campus residence, breaking windows, and throwing incendiary devices. This was a protest action over fee hikes and budget cuts explained witnesses who knew those arrested.

Sick Society

In the present day it is not uncommon to see 7th and 8th grade girls hopping along to school giggling about the fact they are just a few months away from having a baby. Often a few weeks after the baby is born the new mothers take the baby to school to show classmates and teachers. In almost every case, teachers, especially motherly female teachers, smile and remark, "Ohh! So cute! It looks like you and baby are headed for an enjoyable life." (Following that are ten minutes of everyone in the group with baboon smiles.)

What the Individual Can Do

Concerned individuals can do a little to correct matters. They can peaceably change their vote -- not voting for anyone in the political arena whose policies support the downhill slide of the American Dream. Also, individuals can vote with their billfold in stores. Every time one spends, try not to buy from companies that support or finance things you feel are improper. Finger pointing at one political party that seems to be the “party of impropriety” is of no help. In the USA both sides helped pick the lock which secures public trust.        The giving of “Free Lunches” will not stop.

What God Can Do and Will Do

There are definite rewards for following God’s desires. For 1,800 years, it hardly ever rained in Israel. This was the barren land discovered by Mark Twain. So-called "Palestine" was a wasteland. The heaviest periods of rainfall during the following 150-year period came in and around 1948 and 1967 – the years of Israel's independence and its most stunning military victory. God gives rewards for following His desires.
Poor Education of Youngsters

       Mid-February 2010 -- Look what Texas school officials wish to erase from United States history! A Texas state board of only 15 people will vote on whether to revise U.S. textbooks to omit references to Daniel Boone, Gen. George Patton, Nathan Hale, Columbus Day and Christmas. The Texas State Board of Education will also vote on a proposal to substitute the term "American" with "global citizen."
       Americans must speak up before only eight people, with a majority vote, have a chance to literally rewrite American history. Is it just in the last few years that warnings about dangers in school operations are coming forth? No! It has been a gradual build up.
        Take this quote: “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.” Who said that? Answer: Abraham Lincoln. OK! One more quote to identify: “Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.” The speaker: Adolph Hitler in a November 1933 speech.
--*** *** *** *** ***--
In the near future there will again be “pledges of allegiance” in classrooms all across the USA. Here are those words: “I pledge allegiance to the flag, (pause) the flag of the United States of All the World.” [This will be part of the One World Government]
--*** *** *** *** ***--
For the above reasons you should go to a used book store and buy old school history books to keep for your kids and grandkids to read. Well, not just history textbooks. Consider sociology, government, etc. Compare the information then and now. Discuss differences in emphasis and coverage. It is worth the effort to get these books before they disappear for good.

       Nicholas Kafouris tells the press he was forced from his £30,000-a-year standard-four (4th grade) post because he would not tolerate the “racist” and “anti-Semitic” behaviour of children in his classroom.
       The teacher is now suing his former school, the headteacher, and the assistant head for racial discrimination after they failed to take action about the comments made by pupils to him. He had filled out a “Racist Incident Reporting Sheet” but claimed the headteacher, Jill Hankey, dismissed his concerns. He added, "The way she spoke to me indicated a strong attitude of “don't come back with such issues again.”
        Kafouris said the comments became more frequent after nothing was done by Miss Hankey after the initial incident reports were filed.

Bad government leaders – Federal/state/local

Orders to take down Christman decorations by 15 January, smoking bans where they only smokers are affected, food police, thought police, et cetera are on the increase. We must assume that the majority of people in the USA want Big Brother watching...and … meddling. Common sense would indicate that those calling for more government intervention (i.e. the single payer heath care push of 2010) must be the Big Brother fans in question.     What can we do? Vote the troublemakers out of office!
Bad Non-elected Leaders

To deny that future “bad leaders” will rise to prominence in greater number is to accept it when it appears.

In the future you can expect rough-stuff worse than the following report. In Feb 2010 two of the most liberal, widely read news sites called for violence against Republican party members for obstructing the radical agenda of President Barack Obama. CNN and Huffington Post have each published op-eds this week by regular contributors with headlines that explicitly call for Barack Obama to use violent gangland tactics against his political opponents.

CNN published a column by Roland Martin on 11 February 10 with the headline, Time for Obama to go 'gangsta' on GOP. Martin concluded the article with a plea for Obama to emulate the violent tactics of the Prohibition-era Chicago mob boss Al Capone.

The Huffington Post followed-up with their own call for gangland violence against Republicans with the publication on February 14 of a column by David Bourgeois with the title, Obama Better Start Breaking Kneecaps. Bourgeois concludes his article with this call for gangland violence: “ … (Y)ou've tried numerous times to talk with the Republicans, to negotiate, to meet them halfway on every single matter before the American people. But they hate you for many reasons. It's time you break kneecaps (bold in the original writing)”



     Iran vows support for Hamas in 2009 -- the enemy of Israel. "Palestine is the symbol of a "global front of freedom-seekers," Ahmadinejad tells a visiting mission on 13 Dec 2009. These freedomseekers are no force for peace!

      When Americans study the politics of Israel and the feelings of a majority of American Jews concerning which U.S. political party they should support to give the most help to Israel, the American Left receives that “support”. Why? A book published in 2009 does an excellent job of giving the explanation. Why Are Jews Liberals? by Norman Podhoretz (A Jew himself) delivers a fair coverage of religion, politics, and history of this question on both sides of the Atlantic. The book is very nicely divided into two distinct sections of the "how" and "why” in terms of liberal Judaism.
      The author’s personal switch from Left to Right occurred when he realized Israel's enemies not only resided on the Statist Left, but also that it was the pseudo-peaceniks who showed zero interest in Judaism or condemning anti-Semitism/anti-Zionism, and wrongly lent their time to the mundane, "feel good" topics of civil rights, integration, housing. They felt "Let Israel take care of itself. We will just use its name."
      When the majority of Jews came to America, they aligned themselves with the Democratic Party because of its close resemblance to the disingenuous left-leaning Europeans (their “so-called friends” still today), who favored the emancipation of the Jews, but say “follow our advice.”
      Podhoretz looks at Harry S. Truman as basically the last Zionist Democrat President. (FDR was not, JFK not so much either, LBJ “no way”.) During and after WWII Truman recognized Israel and thus won a great deal of Jewish support. It stayed at a high level. Their message continued to attract new Jewish immigrants to this country.
      Podhoretz traces modern Democrat attitudes toward Israel as hostile, contrasting to Republican Attitudes about Israel. (aside from the occasional remnant of 1940s Isolationism by some on the Right) Eisenhower to Nixon to Reagan to Bush Jr., have supported Israel with great fervor since the Six-Day War in 1967.
      Since 2008 the Hollywood Left has supports Democrat Obama, and Jewish people on the Left support Obama. Obama has made some unfriendly remarks about Israel. There are some people who said, "I don't understand. I thought Israel was a key thing to all Jewish people, still they support Obama!" You can tell those people, "Read Mr. Podhoretz's book, Why Are Jews Liberals?" Basically... It's more complicated than this … but, synthesize it down to one thing: Liberals are liberals first. They're partisans first, whatever else they are. If they're feminists, they're still liberals first. If they're animal rights nuts, they're liberals first. If they are the hoaxers of climate change and global warming, they are liberals or socialists first -- and the issues that they attach themselves to are simply their springboards, their jumping-off points for advancing liberalism and statism.
      Leftists, no matter where they come from, are zealous adherents to a secular religion. While conservatives believe that only God is perfect (the Judeo-Christian ethos) and that each man can strive to be better in His image, the Left believes that humanity can be perfected. That perfection starts with the purity of Leftist intentions, but it takes a strong central government to do the “perfecting.” To “perfect” an all-encompassing equality of the citizens must come about. Left-leaders search for the "unfairly successful”, who must be brought down as the "oppressed masses" must be raised up. The Leftist intentions are made manifest by the cognoscenti via a top-down system, because each individual person cannot be trusted to stay Mr. & Mrs. Averagesouls. A top-down approach can best be implemented by an all-encompassing government that is the keeper and sustainer of perfection.
      New author: David Brog's Standing with Israel, is about Evangelical support for the Jewish State. The author proves beyond a doubt the irony that Christian Zionists are truly Israel's most hated friends. Hated by persons of all religions or of no religion. This is another vital topic explaining why 80% of American Jews "don't see the big picture. They just repeat hand-me-down stories"
      There is simply no evidence to connect the Christian Zionists' zeal for evangelism to take Jews away from their religion. (This argument presumes that Christians-- millions of them-- have agreed to a secret plan that they are now implementing, church by church across America, in order to harvest Jewish souls.) If this is true, why hasn't some turncoat leaked the memo to the press? MSNBC would run with that story. CNN would the next day.
      The Left has a belief in managing a public “self-correcting to commonplace zero-sum systems”. The essence of all this is a clash-after-clash of religions. Those Jews who are liberal have therefore abandoned the teachings of Judaism and made God subservient to the tenants of their “leftist religion”.
      In the Last Days Israel will remain, protecting itself. Evil forces will stand in and around the country.

Inept Central Government Organization

Governments of the major world nations are sticking every one of their citizens for the bills racked up for millions of “free lunches” handed out by the political hacksters who have made a career out of glorifying greed; as without shame, these politicians masquerade under the false flag of leadership.

On a wider scope, Globalism and its companion One World Government, have a lot for which to be held accountable. Destruction of the American Dream is #1 on the list.        “Free Lunches” will grow in size – covering the entire table!

Individual and Organized Crime

On 12 Feb 2010 there was a crime headline: "Russia nabs meteorite smuggling ring." Is this telling us that the world is running out of things to monetize. The universe hurls rocks at us and we sell them to Russia for souvenirs.


Gaza is in the world news every week. There has been violence, unrest, and fighting there since before the days of King Saul. Gaza (or Az'zah, a more accurate rendering of the name of the city) means "the strong" in Hebrew. (It comes from the root word "'az" -- it sounds like the English word "as". "'Az" means "roughly strong" or "shove forth") Since those early days the people have been strong. For example, those dedicated warriors survived the siege of Alexander the Great that lsated five months.

People living in this region southwest of Jerusalem have been a thorn in the side of Adamic tribes since they failed to follow God’s command to enter the land and destroy all of the inhabitants. (Deut 20:16-18)

Israel took Gaza and territory around it and nearby Ashkelon, we are told in Judges 1:18, around the year 1433 B.C. Zech 9:5 records one of God’s commands: “Ashkelon shall see and fear; Gaza also, and be very sorrowful, and Ekron … and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.” A strip of land 20 miles long contains these three cities.

God ordered that all living in that land be killed. Many were killed. But, all were not put to death. As a result, the survivors and their descendants have caused bloodshed and misery to Adamic people from those days to the present time.

These were not "sit down and whine and give-up" people. By Goliath's time his people were in control of Gaza and adjoining land.

Gaza has great strategic importance to Palestinians. Without Gaza, Palestine would not have sea access, as the West Bank is land locked. In the early 1500's Gaza fell to the Ottomans who ruled it until 1799. All during that time the people of Gaza maintained close contacts with the Christian Europe, and then in 1799 Napoleon captured Gaza City.

In the early 1800s, Gaza was actually dominated by neighboring Egypt and by 1832 Egypt annexed Gaza, but later in the 1800's the Ottomans took it over again. A significant number Egyptians and their descendants remained in Gaza to escape the political turmoil.

Jews had lived in Gaza from antiquity, but in the 1929 Palestine riots, were forced out by the Arabs there. Following the riots the British prohibited Jews from living in Gaza. Some defied the British and Arabs and in 1946, re-established kibbutz Kfar Darom in central Gaza.

We know, of course, that British rule of Palestine ended with the UN mandated partition of Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state on May 15, 1948, and on that day the Arab-Israeli War began.

Egypt captured Gaza after the Israeli war of Independence in 1948. Soon afterwards, they turned Gaza into a virtual military base . Ben-Gurion, the first Prime Minister of Israel, did not pressure Nasser because at that time Ben-Gurion was new in office . It was thought in all quarters, from London to Paris, to Tel Aviv, that negotiations could be made with Nasser.

There was an incident involving Gaza 28 February 1955, in which the IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) killed forty Egyptian soldiers. Egypt had previously consistently discouraged Palestinian infiltration into Israel, but following this incident, Egypt began to sponsor official Fedayeen and commando raids on Israel, whilst still discouraging "private" Palestinian infiltration of Israel. The new Israeli Chief of Staff, Moshe Dayan, pointed out repeatedly that as far back as 1950 Colonel Mustafaa Hafez sponsored Palestinian infiltration of Israel from Gaza .

A peace loving people? In the
center of Gaza in 1970, one
faction shoots at a second faction.

A common feeling of residents of modern-day Israel are in these two recent Letters-to-the-Editor of the YNetNews Israeli newspaper:
     “The Gazans should know: fire begets fire!”
           (Signed:Anat / Hadera, Israel / 22 Nov 2009)
     “Gaza advocates blaming Israel for protecting its young from
      mass murdering by Islamist thugs.
           (Signed: Geulah / Bar Giora, Israel / 22 Nov 2009)

Bin Laden's Al Qaeda organization (believed hiding him on or near the Afghan-Pakistan border in 2008) has long used the Israel-Palestine conflict as a cause célèbre in their fight against the West. Surely to his disappointment, the rival factions inside Gaza focus on battles with Israel rather than support Bin Laden's "Global Jihad".

Palestinian firemen try to extinguish a fire following an Israeli strike in Rafah, southern Gaza Strip, 27 December 2008. The MSM around the world carried the story as Israel's military "picking" on a poor community. Israel was responding to missiles launched at them from central Gaza.        [Hatem Omar/maanImages]

The following is a recent example of the world-MSM distorting events tin an attempt to make readers feel sorry for "poor little Gaza.":
       "Today, 2 Jan 2009, at al-Shifa hospital, Gaza's largest, Israeli attacks from air, sea and ground began last Saturday -- on the pretext of halting the firing of rockets from a coastal enclave. There are 1,534 physicians at all the main hospitals and they cannot serve the needs of all of those requiring treatment. The Gaza Strip, home to 1.5 million residents, have only seven main hospitals. According to Hammam Nasman, spokesperson of the Hamas-run health ministry, such an emergency situation in Gaza cannot be dealt with by the hospitals."

Violence, rocket-fire, and killing will be in and around Gaza until the Last Days.

Weakening Economies of the USA and Other Nations

In the Last Days there will be a massive breakdown of the One World economic structure. Before that, millions of people will see the situation approaching and cry out for a halt and for changes! No government will do so. All they know are growth and control. It is only individuals banded together that can cause change. Such an organization is difficult to form. The longer it is put off, the more difficult it is to start. Try to identify where you are today – ID your country’s position in the economic mess. Who can you support for a turn-around. Sound warnings about what you see! World economies in 2010 and 2011 are too seperated to be considered near the Last Days. "Time" can slip up upon a person. Be on guard!
*** **** ***** **** ***
We tend to construct economic theories that conform to our worldview. They are subsequently reinforced by our confidence (or lack thereof) in the future. Modern nations follow the economic theory that their citizens believe in the validity of fiat currencies of “the big nations”. That fact is the very basis of their core “wrong assumption”.

The purchasing power of citizens of those nations becomes less each day. The hour of reckoning is fast approaching. With each passing the day no easy answer seems anywhere at hand. You're begging the question if you claim there actually is a harmless solution.

An obvious sign of growing world economic problems is presented courtesy of years of bad economic policies including “sovereign bail-outs” by the major nations around the globe.

One day in February 2010 the EU announced a "bailout" of Greece. Wow! Nobody in Europe had any idea what they need to do to actually "bail-out" Greece! The 12 EU Finance Committee members, all of whom speak different languages, are "hell bent on bailing-out everyone and everything" via their political and/or physical dime. All 12 of these Committee Members have no idea how to bail anyone’s economy (or soon their own). EU's new president Herman Van Rompuy will announce the details of "asset guarantee from debt purchase under the eyes of the IMF." Does anyone understand that? All of this is akin to U.S. taxpayers called to rescue certain big U.S. companies. The EU's conclusion to their plan surely will be utter cluelessness. Their confusion is unprecedented (as of Feb. 2010), but bigger stories awill present themselves in the future.

What is Greece’s problem? Greek interest rates went WAY DOWN when they became part of the Euro. Obviously that created an economic boom. That gave Greece and their neighbors a feeling of prosperity. Well, prosperity with distortions. Now the large Greek unions, etc. do not want to pay for the benefits they received. Now a nation-wide recession. Would you buy a Greek government bond? The Greek government moans, “Believe us, we will pay you!”

Germany is the world's #2 exporter, behind China now (Feb 2010), hanging onto their gold reserves. They are maintaining some degree of prosperity. Charts show that Germany seems to be beginning to slump over into a “stall”.

Saudi Arabia is the world's richest oil producer — the desert kingdom pumps out nearly 10 million barrels a day of crude oil. Saudi Arabia is America's #4 supplier of imported oil. So when Saudi Arabia turns to sun-driven and ocean wave-powered generation of electricity to solve its energy problems, you should sit up and take notice. They are turning away from oil to run their desalination plants. Are they swimming in oil? Saudi domestic oil demand has been zig-zagging its way higher for years. Many experts tell us Saudi Arabia's oil production may have already peaked. They see the charts as we do. (Still, they have years of produce in the ground.)
*** **** ***** **** ***
America's #2 supplier of crude oil is Mexico. Mexico's crude oil production is plunging as its giant oil field Cantarell nears the end of its productive life. If current rates of decline continue, Mexico could stop exporting oil in 2017.
*** **** ***** **** ***
America's #3 supplier of crude oil is Venezuela. Do you know what's happening in Venezuela right now? (Feb 2010) Drivers in Venezuela can fill up for 25 cents a gallon. Venezuela is bringing in so much money from their oil that a larger percentage of the population has extra money to spend. Sales of cars and gas are on the increase. This is causing a strain on their oil exports!

There's plenty of evidence that oil production has peaked in at least 33 of 48 countries, including Kuwait, Russia and Mexico. OPEC still has some surplus capacity. However, the global economy is mired in recession. The ingredients for the next oil spike (increased demand) are in place ... waiting to ignite. Then, OPEC will have much less oil to export! Presently, we spend $350 billion importing oil from Saudi Arabia and other countries every year. The United States is not moving away from foreign oil to energy independence. So, when the world economy picks up, there will be less oil for all in need of crude oil! Trouble ahead!

Germany is the world's #2 exporter, behind China now, hanging onto gold reserves, is maintaining some degree of prosperity. Germany seems to be starting a “stall” in Feb 2010.

Let’s look back a few centuries to history. Spain defaulted on all or part of its debt 14 times between 1557 and 1696. It also succumbed to inflation due to a surfeit of New World silver. Prerevolutionary France was spending 62 percent of royal revenue on debt service by 1788. The Ottoman Empire went the same way: interest payments and amortization rose from 15 percent of the budget in 1860 to 50 percent in 1875. And don't forget the last great English-speaking empire (UK). By the interwar years, interest payments were consuming 44 percent of the British budget, making it intensely difficult to rearm in the face of a new German threat. Remember this was one reason America had to come to their assistance. [Today, without a number of radical fiscal reforms, these things could bind the United States next.]


In early February 2010 people around the planet were shown an example of the dangers of deception a One World Government could place upon those inhabitants. In this case it was the United Nations. A UK Telegraph headline called out, “New errors in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, the IPCC.” Look for this story in any of the United States media. A quick check of U.S. MSM turned up “zero stories”. Here is a summary of the deception:

"The United Nations panel on climate change is facing fresh criticism … as The Sunday Telegraph reveals new factual errors and poor sources of evidence in its influential report to government leaders. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) report is supposed to be the world’s most authoritative scientific account of the scale of global warming.” But this paper discovered a series of new flaws in it including: The publication of inaccurate data, claims based on information in press releases, and newsletters columns. Recently new examples of false information -- statements based on under-grad student papers. In other words, the IPCC put in their report to governmental leaders and the MSM around world “climate change assertions” that were statements based on papers that students wrote, two of them which were unpublished. These were not even doctoral candidate students. These were not doctoral thesis!

More examples: An IPCC’s panel had wrongly reported that more than half of the Netherlands was below sea level. This is because it had failed to check information supplied by a Dutch government agency.

India has pulled out of this IPCC panel because what was reported about the Himalayan glaciers was all wrong. They're going to appoint their own glaciologist study team to check. Heck with the United Nations! It just gets worse and worse and worse.

Back to “deception”. Why has it taken three years for all of these errors to be noticed? Three years! This was 2007 when the bogus thing came out and was spread around the world!

On another story the UK Sunday Times ran a story "Africagate: Top British Scientist Says UN panel is Losing Credibility." "The most important is a claim that global warming could cut rain-fed north African crop production by up to 50% by 2020.” A remarkably short time for such a dramatic change.

And once again, you can’t help but ask why is it that we have to turn to the British press to get these kinds of stories? Are there no investigative journalists left in the USA? For this very reason, note that British newspapers are not going out of business like so many are here in the United States. Is there any correlation?

King of the North and King of the South

In the Last Days there will be a strong military force near the northern border of Israel and another near the southern border. As of 2010A.D. the names of those two countries cannot be determined. Watch the daily news to see if you can identify them. The King of the North could be Iran curving around to the north of Israel or Iran closely behind and forcing another, weaker military to Iseael's border.       Watch the news!

The Suez Canal

In July 1956, America and Britain withdrew an offer to fund an Aswan High Dam project on the Nile River. This followed Egypt’s President Nasser’s blocking the passage of Israeli ships through the Red Sea and Suez Canal. A week later Nasser retaliated. He ordered the nationalization of the French and British controlled Suez Canal. Israeli Prime Minister Ben-Gurion collaborated with the British and French in planning a 1956 Sinai War. Israel stormed the Sinai Peninsula -- thus giving British and French forces a pretext to intervene to secure the Suez Canal. Intervention by the United States and the United Nations forced the British and French to back down and Israel to withdraw from the Sinai in return for promises of free navigation through the Red Sea and Suez Canal.

“Me First” Attitude

Each human places a moral value on his or her own well-being. Selfishness is "concern for one's own interests with no regard for the well-being of others.” They believe in “me first”. Selfish people often enjoy a “pyrrhic victory,” -- a victory in which the winning side sustains very heavy losses. We may wish they experience some sort of comeuppance in a hurry for being that way. But often the pyrrhic victor’s damages result in mortal damage that is not immediate. It can come years later.
** ***** ******** ||| ******** ***** **

Look at a 2010 version of “me first”. Consider the exploding national and state debt. The dollar-needs of every recent crisis were paved over with “easy money” from Easy Al and Big Ben who live in Washington. They will give you a wicked grin and offer, “You will be all right.” On the other hand, what's wrong with a little savings now rather than continuing to consume and defer the burden to our children? Well, to do that, the “me first” people will not be not served first and satisfied, so they will pressure government not to make needed changes.
** ***** ******** ||| ******** ***** **

It is precisely this right-now-ism that got us into the mess in the first place. At some point a large force promoting “return to core values” (thrift & savings) will collide with the wishes of the Leftist political class. If the “return” folks lose, the “government spend-now” people will move far ahead and be almost impossible to ever stop. Politicians on the Left want everyone to believe the myth that prodigious and persistent growth can be forced forward forever. They deny the reality of economic cycles in business.
** ***** ******** ||| ******** ***** **

The term "political capital" means “money available to spend for one reason – to make political moves appear needed and proper”. As of mid-February 2010 it is evident that the economy of the USA and other major countries are now accelerating to the downside . The administration knows that they may kick-start the economy for a short “while” with a whole lot of easy money to “me first” people. But, the more things slow the more “political capital” is necessary just to tread water. “Easy money” government officials tell the public, “We will keep borrowing. You (in the very near term) will be OK. A 'jobless recovery' is right around the corner. You will be OK!” The names of those who will be paying your bill ten years down the road (and longer) are never discussed by anyone handling “political capital”.
** ***** ******** ||| ******** ***** **

What to do: When government encourages you to join them in these improper ways, pause and gently give them a simple “Thanks, I’ll take that into consideration.” That will usually end the conversation.

Be quick enough to identify their “me first” tactics and voice opposition. Urge the public to stay away from government’s whirlpool of unhealthy behaviors. Run, don’t walk, away from any state of affairs that grows off of negative laws of economics. Many, many folks are adrift on an ocean of pretentiousness and it will take more than you or me to urge them to see where they are headed and where this country is headed.

The disrespect the young has for the old and infirmed is because they have no respect for themselves. The older they are, the more this is true.

        Headline: "Christian teacher 'forced out' after complaining Muslim pupils praised 9/11 hijackers" [Daily Mail (UK) / 8 Feb 2010] A Christian teacher told how he lost his job after complaining that Muslim pupils as young as eight hailed the September 11 hijackers in the U.S.A. as “heroes”.
Nicholas Kafouris said he was forced from his £30,000-a-year post because he would not tolerate the “racist” and “anti-Semitic behavior” of children he taught. The school is Green Primary School, in Tower Hamlets, East London. He taught there for 12 years.
“We want to be Islamic bombers when we grow up” and “the Christians and Jews are our enemies, you (teacher) too because you're a Christian.” One of the teacher’ s supporters remarked, "The Left has no understanding that their ridiculous decisions could kill their grandchildren, children and possibly themselves."
