When the coming economic crisis strikes, more than half the country is going to be financially wiped out within weeks…
The total solar eclipse on March 20th falls on Nisan 1, which is the first day of the first month of the Biblical calendar. According to Jewish tradition, a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 is a sign of judgment.
And this has certainly been true in the past.
For example, there was a solar eclipse on Nisan 1 in 70 AD. Later that year, the Romans attacked Jerusalem and completely destroyed the Temple.
What makes all of this even more interesting is the fact that the solar eclipse on March 20th falls right in the middle of the blood moon tetrad, and it also happens to fall during the Shemitah year.
The mainstream media in the U.S. is being very quiet about this, but the truth is that the U.S.-backed government in Kiev is starting to lose the civil war.
The Obama administration could decide to intervene by shipping large amounts of weapons and supplies to the Ukrainian government, but that could turn the civil war in Ukraine into a proxy war between the United States and Russia.
And the thing about proxy wars is that sometimes they turn into real wars.
Now that war is raging in Ukraine, the United States and Russia have been put on a collision course which is likely to end very, very badly…
Is this the beginning of the end for the Eurozone? On Thursday, Germany rejected a Greek request for a six-month loan extension.
The Greek government will run out of money in just a couple of weeks, and without a deal there is a very good chance that Greece will be forced to leave the euro.
In fact, this week Commerzbank AG increased the probability of a “Grexit” to 50 percent. And if Greece does leave the eurozone, it could spark a full blown European financial crisis.
The most popular movie in America is about bondage, sexual domination and violent sex. Fifty Shades of Grey, the best-selling novel about a sexually abusive relationship between an extremely wealthy businessman and a young female college student, has sold more than 100 million copies worldwide since it was first released.
This past weekend, it pulled in an astounding 81.7 million dollars at the box office. Clearly, it has struck a chord with the American people. But should women actually be watching Fifty Shades of Grey? It has been said that if you put garbage in, you get garbage out. In Fifty Shades of Grey, we aren’t just talking about normal sex scenes.
Fifty Shades of Grey goes to great lengths to explore the twisted world of sexual abuse, bondage and humiliation.
It makes violent sex seem “mainstream”, and it is deeply affecting our culture.
So what does it say about our society that it is so wildly popular?
Every day now, there are fresh news stories about Christians being slaughtered by ISIS in the Middle East.
So where is the outrage from the White House? Where is the outrage from the Islamic world?
If Islam truly was a “religion of peace”, prominent Islamic leaders all over the globe would be loudly condemning ISIS whenever another slaughter of Christians took place.
And a White House statement about the beheading of 21 Egyptian Coptic Christians by ISIS the other day did not have the word “Christian” in it a single time. ISIS is painting the Middle East red with the blood of Christians, and most of the world seems to care very, very little. If thousands of people from some politically-favored group or religion were being savagely killed, the outcry would be deafening.
But because Christians are being killed, it is no big deal.
This is just the beginning of the oil crisis. Over the past couple of weeks, the price of U.S. oil has rallied back above 50 dollars a barrel. But this rally will not last.
In fact, analysts at the big banks are warning that we could soon see U.S. oil hit the $20 mark.
It should be obvious to anyone with even a basic knowledge of economics that the stage is being set for a massive financial meltdown.
This is just the kind of thing that can plunge us into a deflationary depression. And when you combine this with the ongoing problems in Europe and in Asia, it is easy to see that a “perfect storm” is brewing on the horizon.
The stock market continues to flirt with new record highs, but the signs that we could be on the precipice of the next major financial crisis continue to mount.
There are multiple warning signs that have popped up repeatedly just prior to previous financial crashes, and many of those same warning signs are now appearing once again.
Over the past decade, there has been only one other time when the value of the U.S. dollar has increased by so much in such a short period of time.
Care to take a guess what happened the last time an EPIC US dollar spike occurred?
Are we on the verge of a major worldwide economic downturn?
Well, if recent warnings from prominent bankers all over the world are to be believed, that may be precisely what we are facing in the months ahead…
As America continues to drift toward totalitarianism, it is only a matter of time before political speech on the Internet is regulated. It is already happening in other countries all around the globe, and control freak politicians in the US have begun a renewed push to regulate independent news websites. People are hungry for the truth, and an increasing number of Americans are waking up to the fact that they are not getting the truth from the corporate-controlled media. But as the alternative media has grown, it was only going to be a matter of time before the establishment started cracking down on it.
If the ECB & Greece don’t compromise, Greece could be forced to leave the Eurozone and we could potentially be facing the equivalent of “financial armageddon” in Europe.
And if Greece does leave, it will cause panic throughout global financial markets as everyone wonders who is next.
Italy, Spain and Portugal are all in a similar position. Every one of them could rapidly become “the next Greece”.
But of even greater concern is what a “Grexit” would do to the euro. If the euro falls below parity with the U.S. dollar, the derivatives losses are going to be absolutely mind blowing.
If nobody flinches, the Eurozone will fall to pieces, the euro will collapse and trillions upon trillions of dollars in derivatives will be in jeopardy.
According to the Bank for International Settlements, 26.45 trillion dollars in currency derivatives are directly tied to the value of the euro.
Let that number sink in for a moment…
There’s no other way to say this. The official unemployment rate, which cruelly overlooks the suffering of the long-term and often permanently unemployed as well as the depressingly underemployed, amounts to a Big Lie.
The price of oil collapsed by more than 8 percent on Wednesday, and a decision by the European Central Bank has Greece at the precipice of a complete and total financial meltdown.
What a difference 24 hours can make…
Economically, what we are experiencing right now are birth pangs of the coming Great Depression.
The signs are everywhere – all you have to do is open up your eyes…
