Watch Out for Global Economic Collapse Starting in Germany

Angela_MerkelWell, this one should get some attention. It sure got mine.
I received two prophetic warnings in the past few days from two independent sources, both pointing to a global economic collapse beginning two weeks from today on Friday, September 25 2015. Their warnings are also confirmed by others presented in this post.
First Warning – Prophetic Dream:
The first warning came from an email I received from Louie McGeorge, Associate Pastor at New Promise Christian Fellowship and Phoenix House of Prayer.
Pastor McGeorge has walked with the Lord for many years. After a week of fasting and praying for our nation, he received the following short prophetic dream:
“In this dream I was with some friends in Kansas City. They were redecorating their home. Taking things off the wall in one of their back rooms and putting them on their wall in the main hallway. Then my old Pastor came in and someone asked him to tell us what he knows. He said, ‘There will be a crash in Germany on the 25th.’ That was the end of the dream.”
Interpretation:Pastor McGeorge shared his insights regarding his dream. He was visiting Kansas City because he used to live there. He moved away years ago, but still has friends living there.
He believes the items displayed on the walls have to do with the prophetic dreams, visions, and words of warning the Lord has given to his watchmen on the walls.
On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen. All day and all night they will never keep silent. (Isaiah 62:6)
The items on the wall represent the writing on the wall, which means the warnings the Lord has been giving to his people for years in our back rooms, our prayer rooms, are now being brought out into the open for all to see in the main hallway. In other words, everyone is about to see these events unfolding that were previously only seen by God’s people. We have come to the time when these events are going to happen.
I believe the word spoken by his former Pastor represents the word of the Lord. He said, “There will be a crash in Germany on the 25th.” His former Pastor did not say what kind of crash, but Pastor McGeorge felt the implication was a market crash. His former Pastor did not say which month, just the day of the month, but Pastor McGeorge felt the implication was this month, September 2015.
Second Warning – Watch Out for the Pope:
The second warning came from a Catholic prophetic website, Locutions.org. They posted a prophetic warning that a global financial collapse will begin “while the Pope is at the world’s financial center”.
Excerpts from their prophetic warning are shown below. They identified the financial collapse will happen when Pope Francis is the United States, but to be more precise the financial center of the world is New York City. The whole world recognizes that fact.
Pope Francis will be in the United States for four full days from September 22-26, but he will only be in the world’s financial center for one whole day, Friday September 25. He will be speaking to the United Nations General Assembly at 8:30 am that day. Here is Pope Francis’s U.S. travel schedule:
  • Arrives in Washington DC at 4:00 pm, Tuesday September 22
  • Arrives in New York City at 5:00 pm, Thursday September 24
  • Departs New York City at 8:00 am, Saturday September 26
  • Arrives in Philadelphia at 9:30 am, Saturday September 26
  • Departs Philadelphia at 8:00 pm on Sunday September 27.
Before clicking the link to their site, please note their site immediately came under attack as soon as they posted this warning on September 3 and remains under attack today. I am not able to access it safely on my desktop computer, but I am able to access it on my iPad. Somebody does not want this word to get out!
The Locutions website posted the following warning on September 3 2015:
The collapse will not come before Pope Francis comes to America but it will happen while he is in America. I deliberately brought the Pope to America, the world’s financial center, to be here when it takes place. I want him to be part of the picture. I want him to be present.  His presence in America will be my sign that the Church is very important in saving mankind from its own follies.  Toward the end of his trip, he will have to shift his message and address the new world situation.  In this way, I will begin to exalt the Church as a beacon of light in the darkness.
During September, Congress will be voting on the Iran treaty. Terrorism and economic difficulties are the twin evils which will mark the years ahead.  All of these good and evil forces, papacy, economic collapse and nuclear war will be merged in a single unforgettable moment, as they all come together in September, 2015.
Four days later they posted the following warning on September 7 2015:
This collapse is not a temporary situation of a true economy, but the normal result of a false economy, based upon money that does not exist and the accumulation of debt.  All of this happened when the West walked away from God.  When the light of faith was left behind, mankind entered into darkness.
This collapse will be the final warning.  So that my message will be believed, it will take place while the Pope is at the world’s financial center.  After the collapse, many secular voices will be raised, decrying what has been allowed to happen.  These voices will be too shallow because they do not understand.
Although I don’t agree with the Catholic traditions or some of the other comments they share on their site, their prophetic word confirms Pastor McGeorge’s dream. I am also stretched by their support for Pope Francis, but I suppose all good Catholics are supposed to support their Pope as much as they can.
Watch Out for September:
Similar warnings have come from other sources. Neville Johnson saw the wheels coming off this month. Paul Keith Davis saw everything changing after the day of atonement 2015, which is September 23. Chuck Pierce saw a market drop happening this month. Mena Lee Grebin saw death to the finances from September to December 2015. However, none of these words mention anything about Germany or September 25, so they are similar but not exactly the same.
Warning from Neville Johnson:In addition to his word about the wheels coming off this month, Neville Johnson shared another word in which he saw a devastating economic collapse starting in Germany. Here is an excerpt from his newsletter dated October 2013:
I saw another devastating economic collapse. Although the order and timing was not clear, I saw that Japan and Germany were some of the triggers in this. I saw an earthquake devastating Tokyo, which is also a trigger as the Tokyo stock market closed indefinitely. The USA was seriously affected by this. It was revealed to me that none of the banking safeguards, which were recommended after the last economic meltdown in the USA had been put in place. This economic collapse will be far more severe than the last one. Many churches and Christians organizations along with large corporations will fall into bankruptcy because of this.
David Wilkerson
Warning from David Wilkerson:
Back in 1973 David Wilkerson saw a global economic collapse would begin in Germany. He saw the crash starting in Germany then spreading to Japan and then to the United States. The following is a quote from a message he preached in 1973:
“I saw a vision this past April, so frightening it staggered my mind. For the past three months I have tried to shake it off, but I can’t do it. An economic recession is going to affect the lifestyle of every wage earner in the world. The world economists are going to be at a loss to explain what is happening. It is going to start in Germany, spread to Japan, and then to the United States. Large and trusted corporations are going to go bankrupt. Many churches are going to go into bankruptcy and some missionary projects are going to flounder.”
He also shared the same message in his book, The Vision. At the beginning of chapter one, he wrote:
“I see total economic confusion striking Europe first, and then affecting Japan, the United States, Canada, and all other nations shortly thereafter.”
For more details, see my previous post, David Wilkerson: Global Economic Collapse Begins in Germany
Warning from Terry Bennett:
In June 2011, Terry Bennett received the following word concerning Germany:
The angel then pointed his finger to Germany and said that the German economy will stumble and that there would be exposure of wrongdoings at some high levels, such as banking, economists, and even government leaders. The angel also spoke of bad investments, like with Greece, that would be a factor in this stumbling.
He also saw the following newspaper headlines from the future revealing big trouble coming in Europe:
The Mission Impossible Mission: Helping the Woes of the Euro.
The Altered Landscape of Europe: New Nations Emerge from Chaos!
German and French Currency Unveiled; Others Consider Participation
Greece, Italy, Spain Join German and French Alliance of Economies (Editor’s Note: This will be called the AOE)
Watch Out for Germany:german_flagEarlier this year, investors endured a default by Greece and uncertainty surrounding the new Greek bailout package. The markets remained relatively calm because investors believe the problems in Greece could be contained. That would not be the case if we see a crash in Germany. Investor confidence would be shaken to the core. Many would likely give up on the whole idea of the European Union because Germany is just about the only thing keeping it together.
Germany is the economic engine driving the rest of Europe. It is also the largest economy in Europe, so a crash there would be a huge blow to every nation in Europe. Since the 2008 collapse of the U.S. housing market, Germany has been propping up weaker European nations like Greece, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, and Italy. Without Germany’s support the people in those nations would immediately enter into a time of severe hardships.
Could Germany really crash? Yes, they absolutely could. Many investors currently consider them to be a solid rock, but here are the hard realities:
  • Their sovereign debt levels are now higher than ever after increasing every year since 2007.
  • Their largest bank, Deutsche Bank, is loaded up with exposure to 54 trillion euros in derivatives, which means any unexpected movement in interest rates could quickly wipe them out.
  • After years of loaning billions of euros to weaker European nations, Germany’s financial institutions are also carrying bad debts that will never be repaid. They have been playing the game called “extend and pretend”, but every year it has gotten harder to keep pretending.
Germany is a house of cards that could crash with the slightest shaking. For more details, see my previous post, Financial Meltdown Might Have Already Started in Germany.
Watch Out for Europe:
A crash in Germany would soon lead to the end of the European Union. So the problems just keep unfolding. This is not a one-time crash, but an ongoing series of crashes. A collapse of the EU would have enormous impact on the global economy and currencies of countries all over the world. The euro and the franc would be among the first casualties, but others will follow. The impact on all of Europe’s trading partners would be devastating.
Professional violinist Maurice Sklar saw the collapse of the euro would happen after Germany stopped supporting the weaker nations. The following is a quote from his website:
“There is an even greater financial disaster that is falling upon Europe that will collapse the euro, cause panic and chaos there. Germany will refuse to prop up the euro any more. Basic needs in the poorer European nations will be threatened. Many will lose their money overnight as the stage is set for the financial takeover of the Antichrist system. This is imminent, and the dollar will also follow, although it will survive for a season more.”
Watch Out for a Series of Events:
A lot of people seem to be expecting one big crash that flushes us all down the toilet, but I don’t believe that because over the past several years the Lord has shown me a sequence of economic events occuring over a period of years. So a crash in Germany could be one of the big events, but not the whole story.
I shared more details about what I saw coming in my previous post, The Final Four Season of the U.S. Dollar. When I wrote that post I explained we were still in season one and about to start season two. I identified two major events happening in season two, including a sudden devaluation of the dollar against the Swiss franc and a total collapse of both the euro and Swiss franc. I saw these two events happening fairly close together and for a while I did not know which one would happen first. Eventually I learned the devaluation of the dollar against the franc had to happen first because I saw it dropping very suddenly against the franc, which would not happen if the franc had already collapsed. So first comes the sudden devaluation of the dollar, then comes the collapse of the euro and the franc. A market crash in Germany could fit into this scenario as the trigger event that leads to the devaluation of the dollar and the eventual collapse of the euro and Swiss franc.
Watch Out for Increased Tensions:
On July 7 2014 the Lord gave me a dream in which I saw the world had entered into a time of increased tensions prior to a sudden crash of the U.S. stock market and devaluation of the dollar. A crash in Germany could fit this scenario because it would surely cause increased tensions throughout the world.
The tensions were already high when I saw the U.S. take a stand, which caused tensions to increase even more. Months later in a separate dream I saw the stand taken by the U.S. would be the authorization of military aid to a hotspot, which now appears to be Ukraine. I saw the sudden drop in the stock market happening soon after that.
A bill has already been approved by the U.S. House and Senate authorizing $200 million in lethal military aid for Ukraine (HR1735). I saw President Obama increasing that amount to $1.2 billion. So I am keeping an eye on that bill. It is currently in the final stages of being reconciled between the two houses and could be sent to President Obama very soon. I shared the details of that dream in this post, Warning: Sudden Economic Collapse Coming in 2015.
Watch Out Forex Traders:
Several forex traders on this site have shared dreams and words about future price movements for USD/CHF, which is the dollar paired against the Swiss franc. Several people have seen the price moving down soon, which could happen next week with the upcoming interest rate decision from the Fed. Since we are still two weeks from September 25th we could see the price moving down between now and then. However, a crash in Germany would likely cause extreme volatility with the price moving up sharply because Germany is the backbone of Europe, which means the euro would likely drop sharply, which means the franc would also likely drop sharply. Even though the franc is no longer pegged to the euro, it still tends to move in the same direction.
The forex market is a lot riskier than the stock market. If the stock market drops, investors can hold onto their shares and hope for prices to move back up. In the forex market, a big movement in price could wipe out the positions of traders who are on the wrong side of it. Unless the Lord reveals more about what is coming, I am planning stay out of the forex market on September 25th to see what happens.
Watch Out for Fridays:
This next point might not be related, but I am putting it out there for consideration. A financial insider shared the banksters plans for a global economic collapse will begin on a Friday.
“It’s going to be another day like any other day. It’s going to be a Friday when it happens too. That is what they plan on doing. It’s going to be in the middle of the afternoon. The word on the street is that some of these guys are meeting over here and another meeting over there and not even their assistants will know where these guys are. Then they’re going to pull the plug. Markets will be shut down at around 12 o’clock or 12:30 and just leave them off because the collapse is going to be so quick.”
I shared more details about this warning in my previous post, Insider Leaks Details of Banksters Plans to Take Down U.S. Economy. So if the crash in Germany is the same event as what the banksters have planned, it could happen on Friday September 25th. The next available dates in 2015 and 2016 for Fridays landing on the 25th are as follows:
  • Friday, September 25, 2015
  • Friday, December 25, 2015
  • Friday, March 25, 2016
  • Friday, November 25, 2016
I find it interesting September 25th falls on a Friday.
Conclusion:Any of these prophetic warnings standing alone would be interesting, but putting them all together reveals a disturbing picture. Pastor McGeorge heard Germany will crash on the 25th, but was not shown which month. However, other prophetic words from other sources suggest it could be this month. I believe it would be wise to prepare for trouble coming soon, especially two weeks from now on Friday, September 25.
When it comes to prophetic ministry, date setting is the hardest part. Yet, I don’t think it is right to always disregard dates because I believe there are times when the Lord reveals specific dates, especially when it comes to warnings of trouble ahead.
Anyone who has followed the prophetic ministry for very long knows it can be frustrating because we all want to know what is going to happen and when, but the reality is we only know in part and see in part (1 Corinthians 13:9). Only God knows sees the whole picture. Now would be a great time to seek him and ask him what to do next.

Ashton Carter, Obama’s Secretary of Defense, said during a Pentagon briefing on Thursday the Russian effort to target the Islamic State in Syria will “pour gasoline on the (ISIS) phenomenon.”
Assisting Syria in its war against ISIS and other jihadi groups attempting to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad will empower the Islamic State, Carter insisted. 
Carter’s remarks underscore the primary objective of the United States in Syria — removing al-Assad.
“To pursue the defeat of ISIL without at the same time pursuing a political transition is to fuel the very kind of extremism that underlies ISIL, and if that’s the Russian view that’s a logical contradiction,” Carter said. “And the way out of that contradiction is to pursue both of those in parallel. And on that basis I think we’re prepared to discuss a way ahead with Russia where the political and the military move in parallel.”
Britain’s Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said on Friday the Russian attempt to defeat ISIS and prevent the creation of a Wahhabist principality in Syria — as suggested by Defense Department documents — increases Russia’s “moral responsibility in the crimes committed by the regime.”
“Assad must go, he can’t be part of Syria’s future,” Hammond said, Le Monde reported. “If we reach a deal on a transition authority and Assad is part of it, then it will be necessary to talk with him in his capacity as an actor in this process.”
Speaking with Charlie Rose this week about Russian involvement in Syria, Vladimir Putin said it is his “deep belief that any actions to the contrary in order to destroy the legitimate government will create a situation which you can witness now in the other countries of the region.”
Putin also said the al-Assad government must engage in dialogue with the US supported, trained and armed opposition. “At the same time we must encourage them to engage in dialogue with the rational opposition and conduct reform.”
“It is only the Syrian people who should decide who should govern their country, and how.”
Putin did not define what he meant by “rational opposition.”
The proxy forces supported by the United States and its partners, including Saudi Arabia, the Gulf Emirates and Turkey, are comprised almost entirely of radical jihadists.

Life After a Financial Collapse

You Will Soon Lose Everything You Own Unless You Act Now!

“Conspiracy theorist”
Have you ever sat in a room and couldn’t figure out why people were laughing? They laughed and laughed and laughed as your curiosity grew and grew. And then, suddenly, you realized they were laughing at you! This is what is happening to all Americans. We have been robbed blind and we have scarcely noticed. Now, our very existence is being threatened and people laugh at you for talking about it as they call you a “conspiracy theorist”, “fear-monger” and “the purveyor of doom and gloom”.
I was roundly criticized when I said the Cyprus bail-in scenario was coming to the United States. I was told there would be a revolution if this happened and the government would be too afraid to try such a thing and that we would have 100 million Americans in the street who would be heavily armed.
Listening to these sheep is like listening to a country song played backwards. You know  the song where the wife does not leave, the truck still runs and the cowboy stops drinking. Maybe it is all the fluoride in the water that is causing such widespread ignorance and apathy.
The globalists are preparing to steal everything you own, they have rehearsed for this day, they are on a timetable to carry this plot out and they are laughing at our collective stupidity!

The Beta Tests for the “Grand Theft of the American People” Are Complete

The American people have been through several beta tests related to our private wealth being confiscated and no resistance was offered by the sheep of this country.
The first of the beta tests included the hijacking of our money in the bail-outs. Amazingly, the people just continued on like business as usual as then ex-Goldman Sachs head and then Secretary of the Treasury, Hank Paulson, oversaw the literal stealing of trillions of dollars of the nation’s money by the criminals on Wall Street.
The MF Global debacle stands as a second beta test in which secured investor accounts were stolen by the friends of Don Corzine at JP Morgan. Despite the fact that the stolen money sat in secured accounts, was ostensibly protected by the Securities and Exchange Commission and insured by the FDIC, over a billion dollars was stolen and nobody went to jail. I can still hear the bankers laughing at the collective impotence of the people of this country.
Attention Federal Employees: This is man is stealing from you as you read these words.
Attention Federal Employees: This is man is stealing from you as you read these words.
The appointment of criminal Jack Lew to head the Secretary of the Treasury and nobody cried foul, was the third beta test. Jack Lew was one of the biggest criminals on Wall Street. While at Citigroup, Lew oversaw 113 tax evading accounts in Cayman Island banks.   Based upon Lew’s resume, hedge funds for Citigroup where he lost almost 600 million dollars, one can only assume that is why Obama has appointed Lew to finish the job which will leave you and I with nothing. Obama may as well have appointed Al Capone and Capone stole far less money than Lew. But wait, there’s more dirt on Lew. Jack Lew, from Citigroup, was an overseer of hedge funds. You know, the hedge funds originating from the actual criminals that collapsed the economy back in 2008. This is who Obama selected to run the economy. Throughout 2013-14, Lew announced that the government was taking the unprecedented action of avoiding governmental default through this summer by including tapping into and suspending investments into the Civil Service Retirement and Disability Fund and halting the daily reinvestment of the government securities (G) fund, the most stable offering in the Thrift Savings Plan‘s portfolio. This means that when the run on the banks begins to happen, Lew and fellow criminals will move steal all retirement accounts. The handling of these Civil Service retirement accounts was merely a beta test and the sheep remained asleep.
Everybody gets the joke but the American people.
Everybody gets the joke but the American people.

MERS Mortgage Fraud

While we are counting the ways that the American people have been ripped off by the bankers, let’s not forget to mention the MERS mortgage fraud in which millions of homes have been stolen because mortgage holders have paid the wrong title company because their note has been sold so many times that nobody knows who really owns the note to our homes! And let’s not forget about the Federal Reserve that spent two years buying up mortgage backed securities to the tune of $40 billion dollars a month and that money was obtained from printing money out of thin air which made our money worth less. Very soon America, our money will be worthless.

In November 2014, Bankers Declared Stealing to be Legal

I almost forgot, on November 16, 2014, the G20 nations declared your bank account to NOT be money therefore, your FDIC insurance is invalid and your bank account, when seized, will go to pay the derivatives debt.
Six days prior, the G20 nations, meeting in Brisbane, Australia, declared that the banks own your money when you deposit your paycheck. Subsequently, every time you make a deposit in the bank, you are donating a gift to the very people who stolen our children’s economic future.
While the bankers are laughing at us, I can hear the sheep saying “That will never happen here” and “You are a conspiracy theorist”, “You are fear-mongering” as the bankers collapse to the floor in laughter at our collective stupidity.


When will the economy collapse to the point that even the Federal Reserve will be helpless in finding temporary band aids designed to keep this sinking ship afloat?
Dates are impossible to predict and anyone who does so is engaged in a fool’s errand. However, there is a timeline that is emerging that we might all want to pay attention to. There are eight events, which will happen in succession, that will result in the economic destruction of the United States.

The Great Eight

1. The collapse of the Greek economy and government. This is well underway.
2. The collapse of Spain. This even is in process.
3. The collapse of Italy. Italy will quickly follow Spain’s collapse.
4. The collapse of Ireland. Ireland is hanging on by a thread.
5.  By this time, the American economy is reeling. Shortages begin to appear in the United States. Civil unrest grows. Restrictions on bank withdrawals begin to appear. The government will more than likely outlaw the selling of gold to private parties as they want to lock you into their system and cut off all avenues of escape. The outlawing of gold will take place when the elite have horded as much as they can. A wise man would accumulate gold and hide it. After the collapse, you would own a King’s ransom.
6. The bankers will make their move on all American assets when the European Central Bank begins to buckle. With Germany teetering on the proverbial economic cliff, our demise cannot be far behind.
7. There will be a false flag in order to justify the implementation of martial law and the theft of nearly everything you own.Jade Helm is still operational and growing in scope by the day.
8. Dissenters will be quarantined, or worse, in FEMA camps.
Dominoes #1 through #4 will happen very quickly.


Let’s calculate the damages to the American people. Our homes are being stolen through the MERS mortgage fraud with impunity, our tax revenues have been stolen through the bail-outs, the Federal Reserve is debasing our currency as they are printing money like there’s no tomorrow, Jack Lew has positioned the government to seize all retirement accounts, Wall Street has learned that it can steal with impunity given the lack of ramifications resulting from the MF Global theft and soon your bank accounts will be gone thanks to the recent G20 mandate on November 16, 2014. And to add to that, very soon, there will not be a Europe to trade with. Did I leave anything out Mr. and Mrs. Sheeple?
“Don’t be a conspiracy theorist”

Is the bulk of your money still in the bank and investment accounts? Have you recentlylaughteruttered the words “conspiracy theorist”? Have you still failed to accumulate gold, food, water, guns, ammunition and form protective alliances with your neighbors?
Now, you hear me laughing at you.

"Blood Moon Time-Line" September 27-28

China Set To Deploy Nuclear Sub That Can Hit US Mainland Targets, Pentagon Says

China has made two things absolutely clear this year: 1) if Beijing thinks you may be inclined to sell stocks into a falling market, the consequences for you could be dire, and 2) the PLA navy is quite serious about projecting China’s maritime ambitions to the rest of the world.
Evidence of the latter point is readily observable in the South China Sea, where dredgers have been busy for months building man-made islands atop reefs in the Spratlys much to the chagrin of Washington and its regional allies. 
Then there was the PLA’s unexpected arrival in Yemen back in March when a naval frigate showed up in Aden and evacuated 225 foreign nationals.
(Chinese soldiers in Yemen)
And who can forget the five ships that cruised by just 12 miles off the coast of Alaska as Obama toured the state. 
As if all of that wasn’t enough, at least one commander in Bashar al-Assad’s Syrian Arab Army now claims Chinese personnel are on their way to Latakia. 
All of this comes as Beijing rolls out a new maritime initiative as outlined in the government’s 2015 defense strategy white paper. Here’s an excerpt from the report:
In line with the strategic requirement of offshore waters defense and open seas protection, the PLA Navy (PLAN) will gradually shift its focus from "offshore waters defense" to the combination of "offshore waters defense" with "open seas protection," and build a combined, multi-functional and efficient marine combat force structure. The PLAN will enhance its capabilities for strategic deterrence and counterattack, maritime maneuvers, joint operations at sea, comprehensive defense and comprehensive support.
Now, even as Xi Jinping makes the rounds in the US and attempts to provide the American public with some clarity on a number of issues not the least of which is cyber security, the Pentagon says China is set to deploy a nuclear submarine armed with JL-2 missiles that have the range to hit the US. Here’s Bloomberg with the story:
A new Chinese nuclear submarine designed to carry missiles that can hit the U.S. will likely deploy before year’s end, the Pentagon said, adding to Obama administration concerns over China’s muscle-flexing in Asia.

China’s navy is expected this year to conduct the first patrol of its Jin-class nuclear-powered submarine armed with JL-2 submarine-launched ballistic missiles, the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency said in a statement. It declined to give its level of confidence on when the new boat will be deployed or the status of the missile.

“The capability to maintain continuous deterrent patrols is a big milestone for a nuclear power,” Larry Wortzel, a member of the congressionally created U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, said in an e-mail. “I think the Chinese would announce this capability as a show of strength and for prestige.”

Wortzel said his commission’s 2015 report probably will include a comment from PLA Navy Commander Admiral Wu Shengli, who said the submarine-missile combination is “a trump card that makes our motherland proud and our adversaries terrified.”

China’s increased naval might, as well as its assertion to territory in the contested South China Sea and East China Sea, has helped spur the region’s largest military buildup in decades and caused disquiet in the U.S. about its role as the region’s peace keeper.

China currently has at least four Jin-class submarines. Fifty-one years after the country carried out its first nuclear test, patrols by the new submarines will give Xi greater agility to respond to a nuclear attack, according to analysts.

“Of all the PLA strategic deterrence capabilities, the sea-based link is the most closely guarded secret because it is meant to be the most secure of the deterrents for China,” said Koh, who studies China’s naval modernization. 

The JL-2 “has nearly three times the range” of China’s current sea-launched ballistic missile “which was only able to range targets in the immediate vicinity of China,” the U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence said in an April report on China’s Navy. The JL-2 “underwent successful testing in 2012 and is likely ready to enter the force,” it said. “Once deployed it will provide China with a capability to strike targets” in the continental U.S., it said.
For those curious, here is the JL-2 in action:
And here's a bit more color from the Pentagon's annual report to Congress:
The PLA Navy places a high priority on the modernization of its submarine force. China continues the production of JIN-class nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines (SSBNs). Three JIN-class SSBNs (Type 094) are currently operational, and up to five may enter service before China proceeds to its next generation SSBN (Type 096) over the next decade. The JIN-class SSBN will carry the new JL-2 submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM) with an estimated range of 7,400 km. The JIN-class and the JL-2 will give the PLA Navy its first credible sea-based nuclear deterrent. China is likely to conduct its first nuclear deterrence patrols with the JIN-class SSBN in 2014.
Ultimately, the deployment was planned and as indicated above, this doesn't exactly come as a surprise to anyone in military circles, but what it does do is underscore the idea that the return to bipolarity is more likely to see China as the counterbalance to US hegemony than it is to see a resurrgent Russia retake its place as US spoiler par excellence. Of course Beijing and Moscow seem generally to be on the same page as evidenced by their security council veto coordination on Syria which means that between the two, the balance of power could move against the US especially if Washington's warnings about the UK's declining military capabilities prove accurate.

The criminalization of cash has now begun in America

Image result for chip implant for transactions

(NaturalNews) A 2011 law in Louisiana that flew in well below the radar when it was enacted actually criminalizes the use of cash. This is part of what appears to be a growing trend in America as governments seek to track your personal finances.
As reported by the web site TechDirt in October 2011, an original version of the Louisiana measure did not ban cash transactions for second-hand goods at first. However, a final version of the legislation did institute such a ban.

Mike Masnick, writing for TechDirt, noted that when he read the initial story posted at the KLFY news site, a local TV station, he thought such a notion was "crazy." He said the original version only required that anyone selling second-hand goods make a detailed recording of any cash transactions. However, it was amended "somewhere along the way" to ban cash transactions of second-hand goods.

Retailers complained about the law, stating it would reduce sales.

It's all for "law enforcement" purposes

"We're gonna lose a lot of business," Danny Guidry, owner of the Pioneer Trading Post in Lafayette, told KLFY. Guidry deals in buying and selling unique second-hand items.

"We don't want this cash transaction to be taken away from us. It's an everyday transaction," Guidry said. "I think everyone in this business once they find out about it. They're [sic] will definitely be a lot of uproar."

A co-sponsor of the measure, state Rep. Rickey Hardy, passed the bill off as a law enforcement necessity. He said it would be useful in targeting criminals who steal anything from copper tubing to TVs and then sell them for a quick dollar. A paper trail would make it more useful for cops to track down the thief.

"It's a mechanism to be used so the police department has something to go on and have a lead," he said.

The final version of the measure banned the use of "legal tender" in purchases of second-hand goods, and Masnick wondered if that was even permissible, given that U.S. currency clearly states it is "legal tender for all debts, public and private."

"While businesses may have the right to refuse cash, can a government outlaw the use of cash?" he wrote. "That seems pretty extreme."

As noted in March by the Mises Institute, a libertarian economic think tank, the push to ban cash so governments can track financial transactions is going global and is being pushed as an anti-terrorism measure.

Global cash-tracking trend

"It seems the terrorists involved partially financed these attacks by cash, as well as by consumer loans and the sale of counterfeit goods. What a shockeroo!" Salerno said, mocking the pretense behind the policy shift.

"The terrorists used CASH to purchase some of the stuff they needed--no doubt these murderers were also shod and clothed and used cell phones, cars, and public sidewalks during the planning and execution of their mayhem" he continued. "Why not restrict their use? A naked, barefoot terrorist without communications is surely less effective than a fully clothed and equipped one."

Beginning in September, French citizens will be prohibited from making cash payments of more than 1,000 euros; this reduces the current restriction of 3,000 euros.

Way back in 2010, The Economic Collapse Blog reported on the global trend to ban cash, noting that a "cashless society" could be on the horizon.

In the U.S., federal law requires banks to report cash withdrawals over $10,000 to the government.

On Tuesday, Los Angeles officials announced the city’s homelessness problem has become an emergency, and proposed allotting $100 million to help shelter the city’s massive and growing indigent population.

LA Mayor Eric Garcetti also issued a directive on Monday evening for the city to free up $13 million to help house the estimated 26,000 people who are living on the city’s streets.

According to the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, the number of encampments and people living in vehicles has increased by 85% over the last two years alone.

While it remains unclear how the city intends to pay for the proposal, lawmakers have asserted they will ease restrictions on churches and nonprofits that provide shelter, and speed up getting permits to those who build affordable housing.

A member of the Los Angeles Budget Committee suggested to the LA Times, however, that the money may come from the city’s reserve fund, which is set aside for financial emergencies.

California state law also allows public facilities such as parks and schools to be used for emergency housing during a “shelter crisis.”
