THE WORTHLESS, THE LESS THAN WORTHLESS AND THE CURRENCY OF THE BEAST...pt. II
Events surrounding the sub-prime mortgage loan crisis are getting out of hand. Both democrats and republicans are clamoring for an economic stimulus package to help stave off the recession that the media is joyously claiming is certain to befall our economy. A decapitated economy bodes well for democrats in the upcoming presidential elections. Yet this rare display of bipartisanship is nothing to celebrate or gloat over. The democrats, after all, have had control over congress for the last year. Voters just might link their influence to these results. The bloviating on this issue has reached ridiculous proportions as everyone is trying to shirk their responsibility for this mess. A mess that is both desirable and deserved.
As I have previously written about in the original installment of this essay, people in this country have arrogantly been living beyond their economic status for far too long. That which you borrow to pay for does NOT belong to you. As a result the people who are "suffering" from mortgage foreclosures are not losing their houses. Those houses NEVER belonged to them as those people purchased them with someone else's money. I wrote extensively on the pathetic attitudes and behaviors that have led to this situation in the first installment of this essay. However in that essay I made another assertion which, like the collapse of the housing market, is likewise coming to pass.
Those who look to the Bible should easily see where this leads. As the Bible lays out the entire history of the angelic conspiracy of mankind from the very beginning of the earth. "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12. Earthly behavior is a reflection of the current state of the ongoing conspiracy against mankind. One that which almost everyone is either a willing or unwilling participant. Forget about the "moral decay" aspect of it, I am talking about that great final financial transaction between the public and..........the ANTICHRIST! Yes, those of you who are in debt and are currently worth less than nothing are already OWNED by him. Whether or not the great beast of Biblical prophecy is even aware of his own destiny or not, the transaction that will give him power over you has already occured. History has shown that those who owe are in fact those who are owned and you have already handed over control of your future to those who hold your debts. You have NO say in the matter. You never even noticed when it happened did you? They don't call our favorite rebel angel the devil for nothing. (The Worthless, The Less Than Worthless and the Currency of the Beast)
Now, see how these realities are clenching their hands around the throat of the American economy and every single one of you reading this. Even if you, like myself, have not been a participant in the fiscal irresponsibility that has brought this about, you nonetheless will have to suffer significant consequences as the currency of the beast approaches. The sovereignty of the United States is at stake and you can rejoice in knowing that it is for sale! Consider this:
Citigroup Inc., suffering huge losses on mortgage-related securities, said late Monday that an arm of the Abu Dhabi government would invest $7.5 billion in the giant U.S. bank. The cash infusion would give the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority a stake of as much as 4.9% in Citigroup.
Abu Dhabi, one of the United Arab Emirates, is buying from Citigroup equity units that would pay an 11% annual dividend and be converted into Citigroup common stock in 2010 and 2011 at prices of $31.83 to $37.24 a share, depending on the bank's stock price at that time. Citigroup said Abu Dhabi would have "no role in the management or governance of Citi, including no right to designate a member" of its board.(L.A.Times)
Do you really believe that the "Abu Dhabi Investment Authority" would pour billions of dollars into a company to have "no role in the management or governance" in it? All investors have an influence in the operation and management in a company whether direct or indirect. That is the nature of the...beast! But they are not alone.
U.S. investment bank Merrill said it would issue $6.6 billion in preferred shares to investors, including the Kuwait Investment Authority, the Korean Investment Corp and a unit of Japan's Mizuho Financial Group, as it looked to shore up its capital base. The New York Times on Friday reported Merrill was expected to suffer $15 billion in losses stemming from bad mortgage investments, when it releases its fourth quarter results on Thursday. It wrote off $8.4 billion in the third quarter.
Banks, wrestling with huge losses stemming from U.S. mortgages lent to people ill-equipped to repay them, have actively been seeking cash from abroad. (Reuters)
But this is not the first time that countries who have agendas that are not in the best interest of our own have been allowed to come in and buy equity in the U.S. economy in the name of "investment." It has been a regular fixture of U.S. economic practice for at least thirty years. It is greatly problematic, however, when Islamic countries or others whose competitive interests are in direct conflict with ours, such as China, are the ones doing it. And don't think for a minute that these "investors" are only interested in receiving dividends without exerting their influence over these major players in the U.S. economy. In fact, we see their meddling quite often, as in this story from October 2001:
Mayor Rudy Giuliani said Thursday the city would not accept a $10 million donation for disaster relief from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after the prince suggested U.S. policies in the Middle East contributed to the September 11 attacks.
Prince Alwaleed gave the mayor a check after a Thursday morning memorial service at Ground Zero, the site of the World Trade Center towers destroyed in the attacks. The prince offered his condolences to the people of New York, but after the ceremony he released a statement suggesting the United States "must address some of the issues that led to such a criminal attack." "The check has not been deposited. The Twin Towers Fund has not accepted it," Giuliani said in a statement late Thursday. (AP)
Ahh, does that name sound familiar? The same Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal bought a stake in Citigroup for less than $600 million in the 1990's. Its value has risen to several billion dollars. And there he was lecturing the United States about U.S. policies in the Middle east being responsible for the September 11, 2001 attack. Does this sound like he is uninterested in exerting his influence on the United States? Mayor Giuliani did the right thing by rejecting the donation and rebuking the Prince.
The question we should be asking is whether or not we should allow this kind of investing from regimes that are loyal to a state that is dedicated to our destruction. That being the state of Islam. The Dubai Ports deal of February 2006 was ultimately rejected because it compromised our national security by putting key points of entry in that nation's control. Yet the infusion of capital and the acquisition of equity in our biggest banks has the potential to make that attack on our sovereignty seem trivial by comparison. And how would presidential candidate Hilliary Clinton handle such matters when the very same monarchy donated 10 million to the Clinton Library and Foundation? They have been getting a reported 10 million per year from a fund that administers the investments of the Emir of Dubai, the largest component state in the UAE. To be sure, this money is more directly given to her husband's library fund, but there is a definite conflict of influence here.
Neither Dubai nor Saudi Arabia would be permitted to contribute directly to Clinton's campaign. However the Clintons have a history of questionable ethics, particularly when it come to the acquisition of campaign capital. The influence their money must buy with a candidate whose Foreign policy is dedicated to "negotiations" must be questioned. Are the results of these future "negotiations" already paid for?
As I have pointed out in the past. Islam is not a religion the way we understand religion. It is a GOVERNMENT. There is no separation of church and state. Islam recognizes only the state of Islam. When Islamic regimes buy into the American system they are bringing with them the "Trojan Horse" of their hateful Satanic religion. Unfortunately we as a people are intoxicated on foolish economic policies, and it doesn't look like we are learning from our mistakes.
Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke pledged Thursday to slash interest rates as needed to prevent housing and credit problems from plunging the country into a recession.
The Fed chief made clear the central bank was prepared to act aggressively to rescue a weakening economy. "We stand ready to take substantive additional action as needed to support growth and to provide adequate insurance against downside risks," he said. Bernanke showed his hand in terms of the Fed's likely next move amid mounting concerns that the economy may be in danger. Many economists now believe the Fed will slice its key interest rate by a bold one-half of a percentage point when the Fed meets next Jan. 29-30. (AP)
Oh no, say it isn't so. Did we learn anything? For the last decade or more, under the guidance of previous Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, the interests rates of the Federal Reserve have been kept artificially low in order to promote growth in the economy. It may very well have resulted in a period of long term economic growth, but it was growth that was built on unsound policy. Making capital so cheap and easy to acquire leads to the practice of unsound business policy. Loans have been made to people who otherwise would be considered unwise risks. Both businesses AND the borrowers are to blame. When the economy slows down, as economies always do, interest rates have to go up to combat inflation. This results in the very difficulties we see in the sub-prime mortgage crisis. The people who borrowed money under the artificially low interest rates now can't pay their mortgages.
Foolishly forcing the interest rates down, as the Federal reserve is insistent on doing, only leads to the continuing devaluation of the dollar on the world currency market. This is another disastrous result that will lead to more foreign "interventions" in our economy. Americans need to learn that borrowing money is not and should not be cheap. Does anyone not remember what the interest rates were during the Carter administration? Interest rates reached a high of 20% or more twice during 1980. Currently the interest rates are 4.25% after having only been as high as 5.25%! Yet they can't wait to cut it, in spite of the fact that artificially low interest rates are the root cause of the problem! Impossible! It brings to mind a story.
When I lived in Augusta Georgia back in the 80's, I witnessed one of the most interesting interactions between two women I will ever see. The two of them outwardly acted friendly to each other, but alas, there was nothing friendly about them. One of the women secretly hated the other, who was apparently oblivious to this fact. She would suffer serious consequences for this.
The woman who hated the other one decided she was going to do something nice for the woman she hated. She bought her a drink. Seems like a nice harmless gesture so far. But before she gave it to her intended victim she decided to add a "special" ingredient to the drink. A veritable "Trojan Horse." The special "ingredient" just happened to be syrup of ipecac. As I am sure many of you are aware, this is something used often by mothers of young children to induce vomiting. I think you see where this is going.
Needless to say the woman with the animosity delivered her gift with all the phoney cordialities and false pleasantries one would expect. An excellent acting performance if ever I saw one. And, of course, the results of the assault were swift and effective. The victim quickly excused herself. However, the part that I found most amusing is what happened next. After she returned, apparently relieved, she reached for the same drink and ingested the concoction again, just as oblivious to the poison it contained as she was the first time. Yet again the results were swift and effective. This time when she returned she was convinced she was actually sick and left the establishment. Still, to this day, she is unaware of the attack that was perpetrated against her. As far as I know, she is still oblivious to the fact the other girl hates her. Impressive isn't it?
Now I didn't recall that story just to point out how mean women can be to one another. That's a given. I tell it as a warning to how we as a people are ingesting poisons that we are totally unaware we are consuming. The poison is the foolishly low interest rates. Like the victim in my story, we keep ingesting the poison unaware of the harm we are doing to ourselves. Likewise these "foreign investors" are not our friends. Though they may outwardly appear to be friendly they, present a "Trojan Horse" with these investments.
Think about it. When the President went to visit the Middle East last week, did the Saudi's agree to increase oil production to help bring the price of oil down? No, they did not. It is not in their interest to do so. Keeping production down keeps prices high. They can then take the money they get for this oil and "invest" it in the American economy. Always, while wearing a very friendly smile. So how does the poison of the Beast taste?

U.S. MILITARY...ATTACKED! FROM WITHIN
Two stories coming out in the same day show the growing danger of the influence of Islam within our own foolishly tolerant society. There are two dead soldiers today. Dead because there is no way to tell the difference between a radical jihadist and a so called "moderate" Muslim. Worse, however, is news that Islam's influence has reached within the walls of the Pentagon itself. Thus guaranteeing Islam will become a greater influence within the ranks of our own military. Still think Sharia Law can't happen here?
An Iraqi soldier has opened fire on American troops, killing two and wounding three others, US and Iraqi officials have said. The incident happened during a joint patrol in the north on 26 December, but fuller details have only now emerged. An Iraqi general said the patrol had come under fire from gunmen in the city of Mosul, but his soldier had "abused" the situation and shot the Americans. It is thought to be the first such case since the US-led invasion of 2003.
The US initially reported the deaths of Capt Rowdy Inman, 38, and Sgt Benjamin Portell, 27, as resulting from hostile small arms fire. But Iraqi general Mutaa al-Khazraji said: "They (the joint patrol) were attacked by gunmen and the (Iraqi) soldier abused the situation and killed the two soldiers." He said the Iraqi serviceman had been "an insurgent infiltrator". He was arrested and is being questioned. (BBC News)
Now who among us didn't see this coming? The gods of multiculturalism have demanded, and now extracted, their sacrifice. You can rest assured it will not be the last one. So much for the conventional wisdom that believes that giving these people jobs and a chance at a free life will make them dedicated to the cause of a unified free Iraq. It appears they have a belief system that runs a little deeper than even their own self interest. Now what do you think that could be?
I have said before and will say again that religious beliefs run deeper than anything else in the human experience. People will do for a god what they would not even do for their families. They will even sacrifice their family members and themselves for the cause of their god. There must be within us who would resist them the courage to condemn a god that not only tolerates a perpetual war for world domination, but that actually demands it. That's right, I said condemn a god!
I just got through watching senator, and presidential candidate, John McCain give a speech in New Hampshire. While giving this speech he had a group of men behind him. These men were World War 2 veterans. He constantly kept referring to their strength and resolve in the face of the monumental challenge of their lifetime when freedom was in jeopardy of being crushed at the hands of fascist idealism. Well the Japanese and Nazi fascists were nothing more than "johnny come latelies" in the in the history of oppression. They have nothing on 14 centuries of Islamic oppression. However, our ancestors did understand how to defeat such an enemy and, more importantly, they had the courage to implement tough measures to get them through the conflict.
One of those tough measures was to keep many Japanese Americans under guard at internment camps during the war. This has been, over time, a much maligned and controversial decision on the part of the "greatest generation." But it did show that they understood that a multi ethnic society like the United States faces unique challenges when prosecuting a war. World War 2 was a war of survival, and they survived. They realized there was no foolproof way to discern the difference between a loyal Japanese American and a spy working on behalf of Japan. The War Department called for the discharge of all soldiers of Japanese ancestry from active service in early 1942. Even though some Japanese Americans did inevitably fight in the great war, they were generally forbidden from being involved in combat in the Pacific theater. Another tough decision. Another correct one as well.
So now I ask you: how do you tell a "moderate" Muslim, assuming for the sake of argument that such a thing even exists, from a jihadist? You know the answer to that. You don't have any reliable method for doing so. It is a fatal flaw in the plan for Iraq's unity. It is actually quite surprising that this hasn't happened more often. But it has happened before, not by an Iraqi soldier, but an American one. Remember the story of Sgt. Asan Akbar from 2003?
Soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division grappled with the notion Sunday that one of their own was apparently solely responsible for the morning's gory grenade and rifle attack at a brigade headquarters here, killing a captain and injuring 15 others, including a brigade commander. The slain officer was identified as Army Capt. Christopher Scott Seifert, 27, originally of Williams Township, Pa. He was sleeping in his tent when the attack occurred.
Officers said the attacker apparently acted alone, and the suspect was identified as Sgt. Asan Akbar, 31, of the 326th Engineer Battalion. The Army released two Kuwaiti interpreters who were detained soon after the attack. Akbar, who is separated from his wife and has no children, has served with the Airborne's 326th Engineering Battalion for four years. Fellow soldiers described him as a loner who was not particularly good at his job.
Akbar came to 2nd Platoon a year ago as a "rehabilitative transfer," an Army term for moving a soldier to another unit because he doesn't get along with his colleagues or may benefit from a change in leadership. Akbar, an American citizen born Mark Fidel Kools, apparently grew up in California and was living in Moreno Valley, Calif., in 1999. He was a convert to Islam.
A perfectly predictable situation. His loyalty to Islam was greater than his loyalty to his country. Small wonder when you consider that Islam is its own government and does not allow for the recognition of "man-made" laws or "man-made" states. Yet who would dare even suggest, in our politically incorrect world, that Muslim soldiers should be carefully screened before being allowed to accompany their units into a Muslim dominated part of the world? This in spite of the fact that such "profiling" almost certainly would have prevented this particular incident.
As tragic as these easily preventable deaths are, there is another story that is even worse. Worse because the infiltration of the Muslim ideology has found itself a home not just within the ranks of the military, but within the upper echelons where important policy is formulated. This story is damning!
Stephen Coughlin, the Pentagon specialist on Islamic law and Islamist extremism, has been fired from his position on the military's Joint Staff. The action followed a report in this space last week revealing opposition to his work for the military by pro-Muslim officials within the office of Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England.
Mr. Coughlin was notified this week that his contract with the Joint Staff will end in March, effectively halting the career of one of the U.S. government's most important figures in analyzing the nature of extremism and ultimately preparing to wage ideological war against it. He had run afoul of a key aide to Mr. England, Hasham Islam, who confronted Mr. Coughlin during a meeting several weeks ago when Mr. Islam sought to have Mr. Coughlin soften his views on Islamist extremism.
Mr. Coughlin was accused directly by Mr. Islam of being a Christian zealot or extremist "with a pen," according to defense officials. Mr. Coughlin appears to have become one of the first casualties in the war of ideas with Islamism. The officials said Mr. Coughlin was let go because he had become "too hot" or controversial within the Pentagon.
Misguided Pentagon officials, including Mr. Islam and Mr. England, have initiated an aggressive "outreach" program to U.S. Muslim groups that critics say is lending credibility to what has been identified as a budding support network for Islamist extremists, including front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood. Mr. Coughlin wrote a memorandum several months ago based on documents made public in a federal trial in Dallas that revealed a covert plan by the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian-origin Islamist extremist group, to subvert the United States using front groups. Members of one of the identified front groups, the Islamic Society of North America, has been hosted by Mr. England at the Pentagon.
After word of the confrontation between Mr. Coughlin and Mr. Islam was made public, support for Mr. Coughlin skyrocketed among those in and out of government who feared the worst, namely that pro-Muslim officials in the Pentagon were after Mr. Coughlin's scalp, and that his departure would be a major setback for the Pentagon's struggling efforts to develop a war of ideas against extremism. Blogs lit up with hundreds of postings, some suggesting that Mr. England's office is "penetrated" by the enemy in the war on terrorism.
Kevin Wensing, a spokesman for Mr. England, said "no one in the deputy's office had any input into this decision" by the Joint Staff to end Mr. Coughlin's contract. A Joint Staff spokesman had no immediate comment. (Washington Times)
Thats right, you read that correctly. A Muslim apologist, Hasham Islam, has enough influence to get a Pentagon official FIRED from his job. Apparently Mr. Coughlin is capable of seeing through the facade of many Muslim organizations WITHIN the United States that are actively working on behalf of the STATE OF ISLAM. And make no mistake about it. That's how Muslims view Islam. It is the only government they recognize. They have infiltrated our country at a level that has now caused a decision to be made that will have alarming consequences. Tough decisions about Islamic Jihad will not be made by those looking out for Islam's best interest over ours! Our own country is betraying us In favor of the STATE OF ISLAM!
This is not the first time high level operatives have used their influence to alter policy in favor of a direction detrimental to American interests. Consider the story of Solomon Adler, a Treasury Department official, and John Stewart Service, an American diplomat who served in the Foreign Service in China prior to and during the World War 2. Both were American citizens and both were Soviet spies. they used their positions during the Truman administration to author report after report condemning the anti-communist leader Chiang Kai-shek as corrupt and unworthy of American support, while fawning over the virtues of communist leader Mao Tse-tung and Chou En-lai. We all know how well that worked out for us now don't we? All along there was a denial by the democratic administration that there was any real threat of communist infiltration of the government. With the opening of the FBI files in 1995 we have learned a lot about this incident and many others that prove that the Soviets had successfully penetrated the U.S. government at the highest levels. It was no myth. McCarthy has long since been vindicated.
Do not underestimate the ability of Muslims to alter American policy in the same manner. Islam demands loyalty but to one state, ISLAM. Their is not any allowance for a separation of Islam from the government. Islam is the government. Tough decisions will have to be made in order to keep our freedom. WE must separate Islam from our state. They have already achieved the firing of a Pentagon official who was too "critical" of them.
This was done in the open for all to see. Hashan Islam isn't even a spy! Why is any Muslim allowed such a voice within our government? Did you think they could do such a thing? Now I ask you again: Do you still think Sharia Law can't happen here? Are you willing to do what is necessary to stop it?
